  • UK Land-Based Casinos

The first thing that hits you as you enter a land-based casino is the ambience. Most casinos in the UK have a wide range of slot machines, blackjack and roulette tables and other gaming sections. They are sometimes stylish and sometimes garish and most will offer a few drink and dining options. Playing at a land based casino is very different and not what you will experience when playing at an online casino (other than a glimpse of it when you play live dealer games). Land-based casinos in the UK are flourishing, with 147 casinos spread across the country as of September 2016.

The boom that UK’s gambling industry has experienced in recent years has been bolstered no doubt by a surge in the popularity of online gambling. This boom has also spurred healthy competition in the land-based casino sector. The launch of super-casinos, starting with the Aspers Casino in 2011, was an indicator that this industry is not shutting shop anytime soon. The £30 million Victoria Gate Casino, launched in October 2016 in Leeds, continued this trend.
