Casinos in Leeds

Located in the West Riding of Yorkshire and with a population of around 480,000, Leeds has one of the fastest growing private sectors in all of the UK. Those things, combined with its proximity to other smaller locales like Bradford, Wakefield and Pontefract, means that there’s a decent demand for casinos in the city.

Each of the four casinos offers something a little different to each other, with the Grosvenor in Westgate being the one you’ll want to head to if you’re a keen poker player. It has a poker room that is renowned throughout the North, five cash tables and regular tournaments. In fact, once a month, the casino adds £2,000 to the pot to spice things up a bit and attract talent from the surrounding areas to play. You can also get involved in some poker action at the Grosvenor in the city centre, with tournaments held daily and cash games taking place on a regular basis.

Both Grosvenor casinos have all of the usual games that you’d expect, though the city centre one probably has a little more variation when it comes to table games and slot machines. For a more rounded casino experience, you’ll probably want to head to the city’s Napoleon chain. There you’ll find roulette tables with varying stake options, Blackjack tables and the likes of three-card poker and baccarat. There are electronic roulette machines and the casino often hosts slot tournaments. There are no poker tournaments here – though there is a private Texas Hold’em cash game that takes place most weekends.

Also in Leeds is the newly opened Victoria Gate "super casino", which opened its doors to the public in early 2017. The new casino boasts a wide array of table games, slots and electronic games, sports betting, poker, as well as two impressive bars and a top notch restaurant. If poker is your game, this is the place to do it, as they offer tournaments every week from Wednesday to Sunday with impressive prize pools. 

The Grosvenor Westgate Casino and the Napoleon Casino are practically opposite each other over on the West side of the city, whilst the other Grosvenor and the new Victoria Gate Casino are arguably the most central of the four. They are both just a short walk from the main shopping district and close to the likes of the Leeds City Museum and the Grand Theatre.
