Yorkshire Casino Guide
The UK is home to almost 150 casinos, and you may be surprised to know that just under 10% of them are based in the larger Yorkshire region. From North to South, East to West, folk in Yorkshire are spoilt for choice with some of the finest casino venues in the country. This includes a number of nationwide chains as well as regional chains, independently-owned casinos and even the North’s only Super Casino.
Yorkshire’s top casinos – Genting G and Victoria Gate
Regularly appearing on the UK’s best casinos lists and arguably the finest choice in all of Yorkshire is the Genting G Casino in Sheffield. Whether you want to play in the Salon Privee, dine at one of the two restaurants, or attend a ‘Genting Nights’ event, the Genting Club offers a unique night out. With all the table games you’d expect including three Blackjack tables, there’s plenty to keep you entertained at Genting G Sheffield. Giving the Genting G in Sheffield a run for its money however is the new Victoria Gate Casino in Leeds. This venue opened in 2017 to much fanfare. It’s the only Super Casino in the North of England with a 1400 customer capacity, 24 live dealer tables, 140 slot machines and 80 live betting terminals. It’s also conveniently located in the heart of Leeds City Centre in the Victoria Gate Shopping Centre. In order to raise your chances, you can learn the rules for games such as Blackjack by playing online before your visit.
The most famous casino chain in the UK, Grosvenor, has excellent presence in Yorkshire, with branches in Hull, Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Sheffield and Scarborough. All of these venues include bars and restaurants as well as all the big table games including Blackjack and Poker.
Unlike the nationwide Grosvenor, Gala and Genting chains, Napoleons is a chain limited to just the Yorkshire region. There are four Napoleons venue; Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and Bradford. The Sheffield branch is the only UK casino with an al fresco gaming terrace outside of London. Napoleons prides itself on excellent customer service and friendly staff. Well-established in the Yorkshire casino scene, for many Yorkshiremen and women, Napoleons is the only choice.
Opera House Casino
Not everyone likes the big chains, and if this is you, consider heading to Scarborough to visit the independently-owned Opera House Casino. One of the leading entertainment venues in North Yorkshire, Opera House Casino not only has a full range of table games slots, electronic roulette and even Mahjong, but also hosts regular live music events and broadcasts big sporting games too.
