Ever since the Betting and Gaming Act 1960, casinos have become a common sight on the shores of Britain. In June 1962 the Metropole Brighton became the first UK land-based casino and since then many more have opened. This means that there’s plenty of choice even though the Metropole is no longer a casino.
From Genting Plymouth all the way up to Princes Casino Glasgow and everything in-between, casinos are known to be a great night out. Rather than just being about the gambling, many casinos also host live music, show just about every live sport imaginable and stay open until the early hours.
London is very much the focal point of casino gambling in the UK. With more than 22 casinos, it has double the amount that any other region has. With poker rooms, casino chains, private members clubs and some luxurious casinos, London has everything you could want in terms of casino gambling.
In recent years there has been an influx of new London casinos with the largest casino in the UK opening in Stratford. Meanwhile, the reopening of the Playboy Club and The Hippodrome has added a touch of class.
With 20+ casinos dotted around, the North West of England is one of the most highly populated areas when it comes to casinos. Particular hotspots include Liverpool and Manchester – the latter of which includes Manchester235, a hangout for many of Manchester’s top footballers.
In Liverpool it’s more about the big brand casinos with Genting, Gala and Grosvenor all having casinos in and around Merseyside.
The West Midlands isn’t necessarily where you might expect the most casinos to be but there are certainly plenty around. Most of the 16 West Midlands casinos are in Birmingham which has six. Of these, Genting Club Birmingham Star City is by far the biggest with roulette, blackjack, baccarat, three card poker and more.
Outside of Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Coventry and Stoke all have a variety of different casinos. G Casino Coventry is even built into the stadium of Coventry City FC.
