Jimmy Thomas celebrates wedding


Jimmy Thomas, a lifetime entrepreneur and leading light of the UK gaming industry, married at the weekend in what must have been the British industry’s social event of the year.

Jimmy, who has his new Hippodrome Casino in London now open, married Bolivian Karina Sotez Borjas in a civil ceremony at Claridge’s in London. The event was witnessed by many members of both families and friends from all over the world.

About 170 guests were present for the ceremony and a glittering formal dinner on Sunday evening. Guests came from as far away as the West Indies, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Switzerland, France and the US in addition to many familiar faces from among the British industry’s most senior figures.
