Lights, action, kerching, welcome to Brit Vegas

Plenty of media talk today around "Dark Horse" outsider Manchester's surprise success in winning the bid to host the UK's first Las Vegas style Super Casino.

The casino will attract £265million of investment and 2,700 jobs to the area, and will be located at Sportcity close to the City of Manchester football stadium.

It promises a huge boost to the region, parts of which have been identified as Britain’s third most deprived, although there are major concerns about the effect it could have on the rise of problem gamblers. WebTwitcher wonders if the new complex will attract gigs from 80s stars keen to keep the dream alive; Diana Ross, Elton John and Michael Jackson spring to mind...they'd probably enjoy a good shopping spree at the Trafford Centre.
