Casinos in Leeds
There is always someone complaining “It’s raet grim oop North,” but this is certainly not true of the casino culture in West Yorkshire! Leeds is a pretty decent place for shopping, and it also has plenty of galleries, big sports teams, renowned universities, and even the odd Opera North performance. But as one of the UK’s most beloved cities, it is also not short of casinos. Here is a quick look at some of your options.
For those with big egos and grand ambitions, there’s no better place than Napoleon’s!
With such comprehensive war-chests as the ‘Dine in Style Package,’ you can finally strive to achieve your dream of beating the opposition; we all know there can only be one!
The Dine in Style package gives you an intro drink, an entire 3 course meal, and a £5 gambling chip to start you off. Everyone knows the journey of a thousand chips begins with a single step; so, at Napoleon’s, you can begin your Empire from the ground up, with a good feed, and move on from there.
With Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Electronic Roulette, the most passionate gamblers can make a brutal four-pronged attack; or for the more cerebral gambler, you can just play smart with a ‘long game.’
However, make sure you cash your chips in smartly. If you fly too high, you might end up with a premature Waterloo; and there’s nothing more embarrassing and humiliating than that. Play audacious, but play sensible!
VICTORIA GATE CASINO
It’s Victoria’s birthday, so it’s time to get that wallet open and stop clutching your pennies! The first anniversary of Victoria Gate is the 27th of January. So, whether you’re there for the big day itself, or just dropping by shortly thereafter, you can definitely have a good time at this huge super-casino.
Is it, as the site says, “a gaming experience like no other?” Well, at the very least, it’s a pretty large-scale experience. A whole four floors of games definitely puts the casino head and shoulders above a lot of their competitors, if you will excuse the pun. I don’t know what 51 000 square feet looks like; but it sounds good to me!
But the prizes are pretty big, as well. £20 000 jackpots for each of the 140 slot machines? Yahoo!
This sounds like an ambitious place. If you’ve enjoyed cutting your teeth on some small or medium size casinos, this looks like somewhere the really advanced and brilliant gambler can try for their biggest challenge yet.
Are you one of them?
Of course you are!
Grosvenor may not be a ‘super-casino,’ like Victoria, but it is still a formidable force. The website says: “We have roulette, blackjack, three-card poker, dice, Punto Banco, slots and electronic roulette, as well as five cash poker tables. In short, we provide all your gaming needs in one venue.”
So, you’ve still got plenty of options there.
But for some people, the food is second in importance only to the range of games. So, what kind of food is on offer here? The site mentions Pesto Crusted Halibut, Mushroom and Stilton topped 8oz Rump Steak, and Persian Spiced Half Chicken. You can even finish off with some fancy desserts. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so if you only win 90% of his heart with your gambling prowess, you can finish him off with buying him a fancy meal!
The same goes in reverse too, of course: there’s never been a better time for you boys to flash your cash on a fancy romantic meal, between bouts of more or less friendly competition at the Roulette Table!
There are also plenty of competitions as well; make sure you don’t fall out with your other half. Much!
To sum up: as with the other two casinos mentioned here, there are definitely plenty of opportunities at Grosvenor’s to have good social night’s casino-ing!
