The giant French operating company Groupe Partouche reports that it had a good recovery in its activity by the end of the second quarter of the current financial year.
In the period to the end of April, the company was still weathering the effects of the pandemic and its restrictions. The vaccination pass in France remained in force until March 13.
It meant that attendance was down by 19.7 per cent compared with the same period of 2019, but the GGR in France was only down four per cent. Swiss operations saw the relaxing of the vaccination pass, earlier, in February.
Gross gaming revenue was €81.9m, bringing the first half GGR to €187.2m and net to €153.4m. The group reported the end to the renovation work at its Hyeres venue (pictured), with the casino reopening on April 15.
