Holland Casino reported a 2.7% year-on-year revenue increase in 2018. Pre-tax profits decreased 15.6%, mainly because the operator received a substantial insurance payment in 2017 related to the fire that destroyed Holland Casino Groningen. The number of visits decreased slightly (1.7%) compared to 2018, but average spend per visit was up 4.6%.
