The Casino MK

The Casino MK is one of four Aspers casinos – the others located in Northampton, London, and Newcastle. There are a number of different table games and slot machines to play in this particular venue, as well as two different themed bars and a terrific selection of entertainment/special nights across the week.

Every Monday, you’re able to tuck into a free Chinese buffet from 6-9pm, with quiz nights, steak nights and tapas nights being held at various points during the month. The Casino MK looks good, although the lack of strict dress code can hamper the genuine casino experience for those who like the typical smart look and feel a casino venue ordinarily implements.

Loyalty Program

The Casino MK invites customers to become an “Aspire” member, where they’ll be eligible for a rewards system called Freeplay Xtra. The idea with the system is you keep playing and playing until you hit the milestones to become enrolled into an elite members group (where there are two tiers – Gold Xtra and VIP Xtra) and receive numerous discounts on food and drink. In the meantime, Freeplay Xtra players receive bankroll-boosting awards on slots and electronic roulette, as well as table bets for collection.

Food and Drink

The Casino MK offers two bars for customers: Clary’s Bar (a bar and grill with live music) and Tanzibar (a surprisingly sophisticated sports bar with cinema-style seating). There is a great range of food to choose from at Clary’s, and most of it is pretty top notch from the full English breakfast right across to the homemade chocolate tart.

There are also burgers, soups, steaks and chicken available, so no matter how fussy an eater you are, there is a good chance you’ll find something on the menu worth sampling. Tanzibar on the other hand is perfect for watching the sport, and whilst it can get a little raucous when a big game is on, it remains a stylish area of the casino.
