Date of closure: 2009
Address (for reference only):
Riva Bingo Aberdeen was located in the Queens Link Leisure Park, employing almost 30 people. Its demise would appear to have been more a fiscal imperative than part of a culling operation as the club was reportedly actually making a loss. In such unfortunate circumstances this is often the only option left open to the owner of the club – closure (in the most final sense).
A quite recent club, it opened its doors in 1999 at a cost of four million pounds, and although its members were upset at the closure it was unfortunate that there were not enough of them to keep the club afloat financially.
