The Hippodrome Casino

Winner of the Best European Casino Operator 2015 and awarded Casino of the Year in 2013, the Hippodrome Casino most certainly has a good pedigree, offering three separate floors of live games, electronic machines and slots for visitors to enjoy. Indeed, wherever you look inside the Hippodrome Casino, there appears to be an opportunity to gamble – even out on the smoking terrace, which covers two tiers.

The Hippodrome appears grand and offers a fantastic gaming experience for both beginners and the more ardent gamblers, along with a cracking Steak House restaurant and a refreshingly comprehensive 24-hour menu for anyone enjoying gambling in the early hours. It’s bright, busy and loud, but in a good way, and has all the facilities one would expect to find in a casino flaunting such prestigious awards. Some impressive guests also turn up at the venue from time to time, including comedians, burlesque dancers, as well as musical theatre performers.
