Casinos in Stoke-On-Trent

What some people may not realise about Stoke-On-Trent is that it didn’t exist in its current form before the start of the 20th century. It was actually created when six different towns were effectively merged to create the 'town of Stoke' in 1910 and it didn't become a city until 1925. That might all seem like an irrelevant history lesson, but in actual fact it may shed light on why it is felt that the city is large enough to warrant two different casinos run by two different casino chains.

The Grosvenor Casino boasts a host of roulette tables, as well as table games that will be familiar with those of you who tend to frequent casinos on a regular basis; you can enjoy the likes of three-card poker, baccarat and Blackjack on your visit here. The slot machines in the casino have progressive jackpots that can reach as high as £10,000, whilst both No Limit Texas Hold’em and Omaha poker tournaments take place every single week. If you prefer cash games then that is also an option with private hire of poker tables and a dealer is doable if you fancy it.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Genting Club Casino might have gone for some variety in terms of what it offers to try to attract punters who don’t like the Grosvenor. Instead, they offer pretty much the same things, although the fact that it underwent a major refurbishment in 2013 means it might be a bit more modern than its competitor. From three-card poker through to American roulette and Blackjack tables, you can expect to enjoy standard casino gaming here. Much like the Grosvenor, they also offer poker tournaments and cash games.

Both of the venues are actually located in the suburb of Stoke-On-Trent called Hanley, rather than in the centre of the city. The two casinos are a short walk from eachother there, though, with the Grosvenor being based in the Octagon Retail Park. The water park WaterWorld is just minutes away, but Stoke-On-Trent Train Station and the city centre are further afield.
