Sheldon Adelson, who recently visited Spain again to discuss the project is reported to be seeking a deal on taxes, on the land available, on labour laws and also on some changes to gambling laws from which ever city with which he can reach the most advantageous deal. Leaders in both Barcelona and Madrid are said to be willing to make concessions to encourage the development for their region.
However, not everyone is looking on the construction of such a large casino resort as a positive development. There is opposition to the plan particularly from opposition politicians and church leaders on the grounds that the availability of so many casinos would greatly increase levels of gambling addiction. There is also political opposition to using the development of casinos as part of an economic plan to create employment.
It remains to be seen whether the development of Eurovegas in Spain will be the great success of Sheldon Adelson’s recent casino developments in Macau and Singapore.
