Casinos in Blackpool

Though traditionally known for the likes of Kiss-Me-Quick hats and bars of rock, Blackpool is also the country’s mecca for arcade and slot machines. The town used to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK, but in recent years, it has hit harder times. That, combined with the presence of so many amusement arcades, is probably why there are only three major casinos to speak of there.

All three of the casinos host poker on a regular basis, so which one you fancy heading to will depend on the other games you like to play. Despite being named and themed after a French location, the Paris Casino is best for those of you that like games of a US persuasion. There are four American roulette tables, as well as the somewhat unusual sight in the UK of a full-size craps table. There are also four American roulette tables on offer at the Genting Club.

The Grosvenor Casino is arguably the best place to head to get your poker itch scratched, though, as we said, you can play the likes of Texas Hold’em in all three locations. At the Grosvenor you can get on with No Limits games and tournaments take place in the evening from Monday to Saturday, as well as in the afternoon on Sundays. The reason you might want to make this your destination is that they have free to play games with a £500 pot every Wednesday.

As with many coastal towns, Blackpool is mostly based around the beachfront. That’s why the casinos run in virtually a straight line from one end of the promenade to the other. In fact, the only one that isn’t on the front is the Paris Casino, which is a little further back and right next to Bloomfield Road – Blackpool Football Club’s home ground.
