Casinos in Nottingham

Thanks to the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, the home of Robin Hood is also the home of students in the East Midlands. Their presence helps to bump the city’s population to over 315,000 and, where there is such a large group of people, there is also a need to keep them entertained. That is almost certainly why there are three casinos of note within Nottingham’s city boundaries.

All three of the casinos are members of different chain companies, so it’s no surprise that they all offer something slightly different from each other in an attempt to stand out from the crowd. If you like poker, then you’ve got two choices of what to do with your time. For those of you that enjoy it but don’t consider yourselves to be card sharks, there’s the Grosvenor. Here, you’ll be able to get involved with low stakes cash games and regular tournaments. If you take it really seriously, on the other hand, then the Alea is definitely for you. The casino itself is stretched over two floors and it hosts seven different poker festivals every year. The rest of the time there are normal tournaments and cash games of Texas Hold’em, Omaha and simple dealer’s choice match-ups.

Both the Grosvenor and the Alea have all of the normal casinos games that you’d expect to find in such a venue, but if that’s what you enjoy then you might prefer to head to the Genting Casino. They don’t do poker, apart from the three-card variety, but what they do offer is the likes of American roulette, electronic roulette, slot machines and tables games like Blackjack Aces. That has an ever increasing jackpot that you can hit from a £1 stake, so it's definitely worth a look.

Nottingham and its surrounding areas is quite a spread out place, but the city centre is reasonably compact. The Genting Casino is located within the Corner House, which also has a cinema and other entertainment-based venues. The Grosvenor is to the South of the city, with the Alea sitting roughly in between them both.
