A new casino is to be built in Leeds which, it is claimed, will be the biggest in the city when it opens in late 2007.
London Clubs International has been granted a licence for a site at Clarence Dock near the Royal Armouries.
It intends investing £9m on the development which will be called The Rendezvous and will employ 250 people.
As well as the gaming rooms, there will be two restaurants, three bars and a theatre for live entertainment.
Another attraction will be an area inside the building called The Show which will have a members' cinema, a card room for local and national tournaments and a conference area
