Casinos

Hey all you gamblers! I was just wondering, what is the best casino to go to near the Strand? Doesnt have to be too close, just something close enough to get to and something with a good atmosphere

thank you! :0)

Casino at the Empire looks quite funky, but I have not been myself:

or G Picadilly - was Hard Rock Casino. Many casinos in the central area and all very busy on w/ends, if that's what you meant by atmosphere. If you want somewhere that still resembles a casino rather than a nightclub, try the Golden Nugget on Shaftsbury Ave - lots of Chinese action on a sunday night.

thank you.

after reading up on the casinos, it seems that they only have table games, nothing electronic like video poker or anything. I guess what im trying to ask is, do they only have table games? lol

nevermind, i see that the casino at the empire does have slots and other games. Do you have to apply for a membership ahead of time? Thanks

Fruit machines are still common sight in a number of pubs, if you'd like to try your luck in a local, rather than go down t'casino.

In the words of the late, great Ian Dury 'the jackpot is in the handle of a normal fruit machine...'

thank you everyone :0)

Can we sign up for membership when we get there and play right away or must we register online? Sorry a little confused about this.

Thanks again!
