London may lack the grand super-casinos of Vegas but it still has a number of casinos that are worth visiting. Here’s our round-up of London’s top 5 casinos:
The Casino at The Empire
This is the largest casino in the capital and it has an open door policy which means you do not have to be a member to get in. The casino accepts anyone over the age of 18, but if you look under 21 it’s a good idea to take ID. With 55,000 feet of gambling on offer players can choose from casino games such as blackjack, poker, roulette, pai gow, slots, video poker and so much more. To give you an incentive to return this casino has a rewards programme that will give you extras for being a loyal player.
The Golden Nugget
This casino is in Chinatown and it is well worth a visit if you are looking for a Vegas style experience when you are gambling. The Golden Nugget is open 24 hours a day and has a bar and bistro. Entry to this casino is free and there are all of the casino favourite games on offer to play at any time of the day or night. Like the Empire this casino also operates a rewards programme for regular players.
Grosvenor G Casino
The Grosvenor G Casino is in between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus and is open all day and all night. The G Casino has a very modern look and has hundreds of slots, casino games, table games and more to enjoy whenever you want to. Anyone can visit this casino and it is free to get into, but taking ID with you is a good idea to make sure that you will not be turned away if you look very young.
If you are looking for a casino in London that has all of the latest electronic games in addition to regular casino games The Sportsman is the place to be. Here you will be able to play in a relaxing and luxury atmosphere and if you return to the casino you will be able to join in the rewards programme which will help you to win bigger prizes as a regular visitor. As with all casinos you will have to be over 18 to enter and in some cases you will be asked for ID if you look younger than 21, so make sure you take it with you if you have any doubts.
With Bunnies as croupiers the Playboy Club is a member’s only casino that is in a league of its own. This is one of the most well known clubs and casinos in the world and once you are a member you will be able to enjoy fantastic nights out there. You can apply for membership in person or online and as soon as your membership has been confirmed you can visit the club which is in the centre of Mayfair. Therefore if you’re a tourist visiting London make sure that you apply for membership before you arrive in London. The casino is open 24 hours a day and has a bar and restaurant for you to relax and unwind in. All of the casino games that you know and some newer electronic games are on offer and all of these have a wide range of different cash prizes.
