The newest member of the Spanish Admiral casino estate is located in Tomares, a small town at the summit of Aljarafe hills, outside Seville. First opened in 2006 under the original name Gran Casino Aljarafe as the first and only casino in Seville, it was acquired by the Novomatic Group in 2016. Detailed planning and the complete renovation and refurbishment of the majority of the premises created a venue that now complies with the high Novomatic quality standards. It took more than a year and an investment of some EUR 6 million to complete the new Casino Admiral Sevilla – with 7,000 sqm of space for gaming floors, poker areas, restaurants and show venues to cater for a complete entertainment offer. Also, the casino has created additional jobs in the region.
Most of the facilities of the former Grand Casino Aljarafe have been rearranged and the entire utilization modified to create a guest experience in the true Admiral casino and entertainment style. The refurbishment also created new space with two terraces and an extended gaming area. 1,000 sqm of floor space comprises ultra-modern live tables, slots and sport betting terminals, as well as a dedicated Poker Room for weekly poker tournaments as well as hosting the national and regional Poker series. The casino offers the largest variety of live games in the entire province of Seville: Poker cash tables (Omaha & Texas Hold’em), American Roulette, Black Jack and Caribbean Poker, as well as two modern electronic Roulettes. Moreover, Casino Admiral Sevilla has more than 100 state-of-the-art slot machines with leading games and the latest in terms of technology.
The Admiral Arena Sports Bar has been added to the casino offer providing sports betting with several amenities: a great social atmosphere and large video walls to enjoy the most exciting football matches, rugby, super bowl or any other sports event, together with friends and fellow sports fans. Special culinary delights are offered by the Kaori restaurant with its new Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki grill or at the Miami Lounge Bar that puts on a tasty menu based on Spanish and Andalusian specialties in a beautiful outdoor area with a wood-burning oven and a lavish BBQ grill.
