So, Manchester gets Britain’s first supercasino:

The decision is a blow for Blackpool and London’s former Millennium Dome which were the bookmakers’ favourites.

Manchester was a 16-1 outsider at the bookmakers to be selected as a test-bed for the UK’s first regional “resort” casino.

I can’t help but wonder if this is the Casino Advisory Panel’s parting warning to amateur gamblers – favourites don’t always win.
