Greenwich loses Casino to Manchester... or does it?

Not until 2010. And the Salvation Army (who know more than a bit about the misery wrought by problem gamblers) are recommending that new casinos to be monitored for adverse affects on their local community for up to five years, not the three years currently stipulated.
