Casinos in Stockton-on-Tees

Stockton-On-Tees in an unusual town, in that it is close enough to Middlesbrough to mean that you might feel as though you could walk there if you had a good wind behind you. For that reason, you’d imagine that most of the facilities available to residents would defer to the bigger city down the road, yet at one time it boasted two different casinos on either side of the River Tees. One of them has since closed down, but the other survived and is the place to head to if you find yourself in the area and fancy a flutter.

Stockton’s casino is owned and operated by the Rank Group under their banner for casinos, the Grosvenor chain. It underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment back in 2013/2014 and is right next door to the town’s Mecca Bingo, so if you don’t find it to be to your taste then you could always head there and see if you can find Legs Eleven or Two Fat Ladies. It’s unlikely you won’t enjoy yourself in the casino, however. It boasts everything that you’d expect to find from such a place, including slot machines that have a jackpot reaching up to £10,000.

If you’re a poker fan, then you’ll be interested to know that the casino’s dedicated poker room is often used to host Grosvenor UK Poker Tour matches. When it’s not doing that, there are regular cash games, as well as tournaments that the average punter can get involved with. From three-card poker, Blackjack and mini-baccarat tables through to roulette and electronic roulette, this is the best casino in Stockton. That it’s the only casino is really a rather moot point.

The 'On-Tees' part of 'Stockton-On-Tees is to represent the fact that the town was built on the banks of the River Tees and the waterway absolutely dominates proceedings. The casino is right next to the river within the Teeside Leisure Park and is just moments from Thornaby Train Station.

Closed Casino

As mentioned above, the Gala Casino Stockton, formerly located at Teeside Leisure Park, has permanently closed its doors.
