Arena Leisure Plans Racino

"Mark Elliott, the chief executive, said he would submit a planning application in the next couple of months for Wolverhampton racecourse to expand the existing hotel from 54 beds to 170, build a new leisure complex with a swimming pool and incorporate a casino within the racecourse.

"Wolverhampton City Council has been shortlisted for one of the eight large casino licences up for grabs under the new Gambling Act…"
