UK's biggest casino on cards after buyout talks

The creation of the UK's biggest casino operator seemed imminent after Mecca bingo owner Rank confirmed talks over a deal with Gala Coral.

Rank's Grosvenor division already has 35 casinos but hopes to extend this by adding the 24 outlets owned by debt-laden rival Gala Coral. A deal could be worth £250m, but Rank said no terms have been finalised.
