Casino New Openings

Casino players in Wolverhampton are celebrating the opening of a brand new £7.6 million super casino which has been in the pipeline since 2008. That was when eight councils were each granted the right to issue a licence for a new casino, and in June 2014 it was announced that Casino 36 Ltd had been awarded the licence for Wolverhampton. The firm beat another high-profile application that had been submitted by Wolverhampton Racecourse Ltd.

Casino 36 opened its doors last Saturday 12 November, just over two years since that licence had been issued. Whilst it is too early to say how popular the venue will be with the gaming public, it has already had a significant impact on the local economy, with more than 100 jobs having been created. A good percentage of those jobs have been given to people who were previously unemployed, demonstrating that the hoped-for regeneration of the area has already begun.

The new venue has extended what used to be The Rubicon Casino on Temple Street into the neighbouring building, and is open 24 hours a day, 364 days a year. Although it has only been open for a few days, it has already become Wolverhampton’s prime destination for anyone who enjoys casino gaming or poker. 

As well as offering a broad range of live tables and gaming machines – some of which boast jackpots worth as much as £20,000 – Casino 36 also offers in-house bookmaking facilities. Bets can be placed on sporting events from around the world via multiple electronic terminals, and a 23-foot video wall allows visitors to watch all UK horse races as they happen. Those who want to enjoy a meal at the venue, or have something special to celebrate, can take advantage of a Sports Bar & Grill and a VIP Champagne Lounge.

The next super casino to open its doors will be the Victoria Gate Casino in Leeds. You can find out more at's review.

We congratulate Casino 36 on opening its doors, and we wish the venue, its patrons and the local community every success in the future.
