Figures do not involve in Berck-Le Touquet – Partouche

In recent years, the Partouche Casino of Berck Le Touquet fell in a difficult situation that seems to grow from year to year. During the presentation of the annual report of the establishment, the City Council announced that its net income during the fiscal year 2013-2014 was down by 57.7% compared to the previous year. The activity of slot machines dropped by 9.86%, while the gross gaming revenue from table games fell by 20.88%. The influx of players also followed the same trend with a decline of 10.66% of the entries in the casino. These figures were recorded in the period of November 1st, 2013 to October 31, 2014.

According to officials of Partouche Casino of Berck Le Touquet, two reasons are behind this continual decline in sales of the establishment: the economy and the opening of Fort-Mahon casino. The decline in the purchasing power decreased the attendance of regular players as well as the amount of bets made by players. The opening of Fort-Mahon casino in June 2013 has made the situation worse as well as there is also the competition of online games. So, the municipality decided in 2014 to not increase the municipal levy according to Mayor Bruno Cousein. The municipal tax has dropped by 10% to 405,000 Euros against 450,000 Euros during the previous year.
