…but if they must have it, shove it in the Dome.

A YouGov poll for the Evening Standard suggests that only 33% of people support a “supercasino offering unlimited jackpots” being opened in London, with 49% of Londoners opposing it. However, asked where in London they would prefer such a casino to be sited in London, the Dome was overwhelmingly favoured over the other two London sites on the shortlist, leading Rainham Marshes and the Wembley stadium complex by 52% to 10% for the other two sites.

63% of respondents thought that opening new casinos would increase problem gambling, and 77% of Londoners said they would probably or definitely never visit a London supercasino. 2% said they would certainly go regularly, 8% said they might go occasionally and 11% said they would certainly try it once.

Asked if they supported a smaller casino opening “in your local area”, 53% were opposed with 25% in favour.
