The Top 5 Largest Casinos in the UK

Hippodrome Casino

Visiting casinos has long been a popular pastime in the UK, with them making a top night out.

The COVID-19 led to casinos having to shut their doors along with many other businesses, leading to a boom in usage of online casinos.

Playing at online casinos can be fun - check out for the best to try - but there is nothing quite like visiting a bricks and mortar casino with friends or family members.



Here are the largest casinos in the UK that are all definitely well worth a visit.

1. Hippodrome Casino, London



London has a lot of casinos to pick from. The Hippodrome is the biggest - and maybe the best. The Hippodrome Casino can be found on the corner of Cranbourn Street and Charing Cross Road in Westminster, so it is right in the heart of the capital and located in a historic building.

At the casino, which was opened in July 2012 by the then-Mayor of London Boris Johnson, various prizes have gone its way including Best Land-based Casino at the Totally Gaming Awards a few years back, recognising what a great place it is to play casino games.

The Hippodrome Casino is open 24/7 so guests can visit at any time of the day or the night. Millions of people go to the casino every year. It hosts live shows and West End legend the Heliot Steak House, which is widely considered to be one of the best places to eat in London.

There are five full floors of gaming at the Hippodrome Casino, which has the largest poker deck in London, as well as the only dice table in the heart of the capital. The world's latest slots can also be found at the Hippodrome, which has over 100 machines, so there is a lot of choice here.

2. Genting Casino – Birmingham

Genting is one of the country's most famous casino brands, so it is no surprise to see the company runs one of the top five largest casinos in the UK, which can be found in Birmingham.

Located at Resorts World Birmingham, the casino is open between 12pm and 5am Monday to Thursday (live tables from 2pm), as well as from 12pm Friday through to 5am Monday morning. There are over 100 slot machines to try out at the casino, with big progressive jackpots up for grabs to ensure that a spin of the reels is always going to be thrilling at Genting Casino.

Sports Bar at Resorts World Casino is a great place to watch the big game of the day while taking some time out from the gaming floors too. There are about 18 high-definition screens to watch the live action on, with guests able to enjoy a drink in a number of classy private booths.

3. Aspers Casino – Stratford

Stratford has been home to huge development in recent years, with the opening of the massive Aspers Casino at Westfield one of the many changes to have been seen in this part of London.

Claiming to be the best casino in the capital, Aspers Casino boasts around 65,000 square feet of gaming action and it is available around the clock, only closing its doors on Christmas Day. Aspers Casino hosts a range of great poker tournaments for those who want to test out their skills at the table, while there are plenty of blackjack tables and roulette wheels here too.

Tanzibar at Aspers Casino is one of the best places in London to watch live sport. The bar has a premium feel and has a large 4k screen on which to check out all of the latest live action. Entry to Aspers Westfield Stratford City is free and there is no need to become a member here either.

4. Grosvenor Casino – Liverpool

Liverpool is one of the best nights out in the UK, with Grosvenor Casino a great place to round off the evening with a game of poker or a few hands at the blackjack table.

Also known locally as the Leo Casino, this Grosvenor Casino site is spread out over two massive gaming floors and is open 24 hours. Live gaming is offered Sunday-Thursday from 1pm-6am, while on the weekends the hours are extended slightly, running from 1pm-7am.

Slots have stake sizes starting at just 10p here, so there is no need to be a high roller to enjoy a visit to the Grosvenor Casino in Liverpool, which can be found at the city's lively docks area. Stunning river views can be enjoyed from the casino's two cocktail bars, while there is an on-site restaurant too for any casino players who find themselves feeling peckish during a visit here.

5. Empire Casino – London

Back to London now, where the Empire Casino wraps up our list of the largest casinos in the UK. This site features about 55,000 square feet of gaming over two floors, so it is truly huge.

Another casino to be open around the clock, visitors to the Empire Casino have the choice of many different casino games including all the old classics such as poker, blackjack and roulette. Entry to the casino is free but those who plan to visit regularly should definitely take the time to sign up for a Met Card, which gives users points they can spend on food, drinks and top treats.

Like many of the largest casinos in the UK, Empire Casino is home to a top sports bar - the Kings Sports Bar - where players can tuck into tasty grub like pizzas and burgers while enjoying a cold beer and watching a big football game or top boxing fight - most major events are shown.

Live sports are also shown at the free-entry Poker Room at the Empire Casino, where players have the chance to buy in from £50 in our cash games and from £58 in top tournaments as well.
