Grand Casino is opened in 1999 in New Zealand, city of Dunedin, firstly it was named as Dunedin Casino, recently new owners have change the name into Grand Casino.

Why was the name of Dunedin Casino changed?

It was the idea of Dunedin Casino chief executive Dominique Dowding who believed that the previous name was not appropriate for this venue. He stated that the fact that complex, where the casino is positioned, was built in 1883 and it was called The Grand Hotel. So adding Grand instead of Dunedin Casino si more original and appropriate.
