The shortlist of five companies bidding to run Southampton's super casino has been announced.

It is expected to form part of the £450m Royal Pier development, although a bid has been submitted for the Watermark WestQuay development, another for Leisureworld in West Quay Road.

Southampton City Council said a final decision was expected in June 2015.

The five bidders are Grosvenor, Kymeira Casino Ltd, Genting Casinos UK Ltd, Global Gaming Ventures and Aspers.

The licence, granted by the government, would allow up to 150 slot machines and 30 blackjack and poker tables.
