'Casino City' Planned in Spain

The Spanish government is moving forward with plans to build the largest casino and entertainment complex in Europe

"The Gran Scala project proposes building casino-hotels, theme parks and a racecourse in countryside near the village of Ontinena."

"...The plans by a company called International Leisure Development (ILD) to build Spain's answer to Las Vegas in countryside near Ontinena are strongly supported by the locals.

One survey found that more than 80% of the people who live in the region favour the scheme that would see more than 30 casino hotels, a convention centre, theme parks, golf courses, a racecourse and a dog track, constructed on an area of countryside the size of 1,500 football pitches.

Ontinena, in the Spanish region of Aragon, is about two hours drive from Barcelona and has a population of 600."
