MGM Mirage has been chosen to develop a large regional casino at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England. In addition to the casino, the project, which still needs approval from local authorities, will feature restaurants, entertainment facilities, and a 300-room property. The Birmingham project is one of several contenders (including proposed gaming complexes at London's Wembley and Earls Court and Olympia) in the running to be selected by the British government as the site of the U.K.'s first large casino/resort/entertainment venue.
