Casinos in Coventry

If Birmingham is the crown jewel of the West Midlands then Coventry might just be its hidden treasure. The county’s second-largest city has about 325,000 residents, some of whom are students at Coventry University and the University of Warwick. We all know that students like a drink and a night out, so that might explain why there are two different casinos within the city boundaries.

Further from the centre of the city is the Grosvenor, which is based at the Ricoh Arena stadium complex. This isn’t a locale for the feint-hearted, boasting high-stakes tables for both American roulette and Blackjack. There are versions of both that accept lower bets, of course, as well as electronic slot machines and a decent sized poker room. No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments rake place in there on a daily basis with cash games also available for those that prefer to play that way.

The Genting Casino is the most centrally located of the two. There you can enjoy games like baccarat, Blackjack, three-card poker and American roulette. There are also slot machines at the Genting and some of them have jackpots that go as high as £10,000. If the Grosvenor poker room doesn’t tick your box then you might prefer to head to the one at the Genting; it hosts tournaments and cash games throughout the week.

The Ricoh Arena where you'll find Coventry's Grosvenor brand is reached easily enough from the centre of Coventry thanks to its status as the home of Coventry City Football Club, but it isn’t exactly walkable. The Genting is much nicer if you’re getting around on foot, being roughly equidistant from the Coventry Transport Museum and the city’s Cathedral.
