Q2 2021 – Press Release – Casino Opening


Just under one-half of residents are likely to visit the Casino after it opens.

BERMUDA: With the first casino expected to open on the Island later this year, following the Government’s passing of the Casino Gaming Act several years ago, we asked residents how likely they would be to visit and gamble at the casino once it opens. Results suggest that just over four in ten (44%) are likely to visit the casino once it opens, while just over one-third (36%) express being likely to gamble.

Across demographics, men are more likely to visit the casino when it opens compared to women. Additionally, middle-aged residents (35-54 years) are more likely to visit the casino when it opens and gamble, compared to residents 55 years and older.

Of those likely to gamble at the casino, slot games are of the greatest interest to most, and more than half are interested in table games (e.g., blackjack, poker, roulette, etc.). Three in ten indicate being likely to play electronic table games (i.e., table games with a virtual dealer on a screen), while fewer are interested in sports betting or other types of games.
