Let me start this review by stating that if you are a true gambler, London is a wasteland of throwback, overly-quaint, overly-precious casinos that insist on clinging to outdated and tired paradigms. The rules of the various games are slanted so heavily in the favour of the house that any true gambler should avoid them entirely, or just look at gambling in the UK as a lark, and never a true gambling expedition. I suppose for UK residents that haven't had the opportunity to play in Nevada, New Jersey, or Macau, this is acceptable, but for true gamblers, the UK is amateur hour. I sat in disbelief as a blackjack dealer encouraged a punter to split 10's, double on 8, split 5's, and so on. I joked to the supervisor that I hoped they sent a car to collect punters like him, which was met with a confused "what do you mean" sort of response.
Dice or craps tables are hard to come by, but the Grosvenor is one of the few to have a legitimate table. However, single odds only, and the dearth of punters makes it a bit depressing to play alone. One good thing is that for Roulette buffs, single 0 is the norm, so at least on that front they're doing allright. I didn't have time for poker, and don't eat in casinos as a rule, so can't comment on those. Location is good though, central on Edgeware road, and easy to get to.
