This has led to the Group building leading market positions in land-based casino and bingo venues, culminating in the acquisition of 19 casinos from Gala Coral in 2013. With the acquisition, Grosvenor Casinos became the largest casino operator in Great Britain by number of venues and by revenue. Mecca, with 85 bingo venues, remains the second largest land-based bingo operator behind Buzz Bingo (previously Gala Bingo). With a finite number of casino licences in issuance and the high capital costs of building casinos or bingo clubs, we believe the Group is well placed with regards to venue-based gaming in the UK.
Rank has been entertaining Britain since 1937, from its origins in motion pictures to today's gaming based entertainment brands. The Group has remained true to its founding mission to make life better by bringing people together for fun and entertainment.
Over the course of more than three-quarters of a century, the Group has entertained many millions of customers in Britain and around the world. The Group's story is one of iconic brands and talented people with a mission to entertain.
Our aim is to be the UK's leading multi-channel gaming operator. In order to achieve this, we are focused on building brands with the ability to deliver them via the channels that they prefer - whether venues, online or mobile.
