Dnevnik daily

Turkish entrepreneur Sudi Ozkan plans 2 casino openings in Bulgarian city Svilengrad.

Dnevnik learned that work on one of the new casinos, occupying a former youth center, is almost finished and it should open for business in June. The cost of the renovations came in at around $4 mln.

Ozkan-controlled Trimontium Princess Hotel AD bought the youth center in 2006 for 360,000 levs.

Ozkan has a 20-year lease for the second casino in the Romantica hotel that is under construction. Dnevnik learned that investment is seen at $8-10 mln.

Svilengrad, with a population of 20,000, is located just a few kilometers from the Kapitan Andreevo crossing on the border with Turkey.

Ozkan is a key player in Bulgaria's gambling industry. He owns casinos in Sofia's Princess and Rodina hotels. The Trimontium hotel in Plovdiv is also property of the Turkish businessman.
