Casino New Openings

The opening date for the biggest casino in the north of the UK has been announced, with the new Leeds Victoria Gate venue set to welcome in customers from Thursday 26th January.

Anticipation has been growing about the new super casino for some time, particularly after the announcement in August that Grosvenor Casino was set to close its Merrion Way branch in the city. The new venue, operated by Global Gaming Ventures, will be the country’s third largest casino at 50,000 sq ft and will be able to host 1,400 people.

One of the biggest poker rooms in the country will have room for 100 players, there will be 24 live gaming tables, 140 slot machines and 75 electronic gaming terminals. Patrick Noakes, venue director, said: “Leeds has never seen an entertainment destination like this before. We can’t wait for people to step through the doors and see the spectacular space for themselves.”

Noakes added: “It’s a game-changer – not just for casino fans but for the city as a whole. Victoria Gate Casino will strengthen Leeds’ already diverse entertainment, dining and nightlife offering and will provide so much more than just gaming.”

The new casino, which is nearing completion ahead of its big opening, will feature three distinct areas for food and drink; the Live Bar will have big screens showing sporting action, Curve is a champagne, cocktail and craft beer bar overlooking the casino floor, and V Restaurant offers a Yorkshire-themed menu in an informal brasserie style.

As well as the new Victoria Gate Casino, Global Gaming Ventures is moving forward with plans to open another lavish venue in Bath. The planned £19 million casino development could open in spring 2018, with the building project set to incorporate a 147-bedroom Z Hotel, a Zizzi Italian restaurant and Byron Hamburgers.

The green light was also given last week for a new Aspers Casino in Bournemouth, at what is shaping up to be an exciting time for the industry.
