Glasgow is fast becoming one of the UK’s destination cities and it’s transformation in recent years culminated in 2014 with the most successful Commonwealth Games ever. It’s a city now associated less with grim weather and dockyards than with a thriving art scene and engaging nightlife. The important thing of course is to find out what’s available for us slots players.
The Alea Casino labels itself as a touch of Vegas in Glasgow and it’s probably our favourite within this city. It occupies a fabulous position on the south side of the River Clyde and is actually owned by Caesars Entertainment so it should be good.
There are nine multigame slots cabinets here from IGT and these form part of that company’s Fort Knox progressive jackpot network. There are also another twenty standalone units from IGT with jackpots up to £4000.
So you’re well catered for as far as slots go but for a change you can try your luck at Poker, Roulette, Blackjack and Punto Banco as well as electronic roulette. If you spend plenty of money here there’s VIP programme which is invite only.
The restaurant here is definitely worth a visit and you can enjoy your meal overlooking the Clyde. For a drink there are three bars – Long Bar, Red Leaf and Isobar.
Opening hours are midday until 8am and although there’s no membership necessary to enter the casino, repeat visitors will probably find it worthwhile to sign up.
Genting Casino Glasgow
North of the river, up on Sauchiehall Street is the obligatory Genting casino which is open from midday until 6am seven days a week. It’s certainly nice inside, as they all are and in addition to the restaurant and bar here you can rent out your own karaoke room, Japanese style, if that takes your fancy.
The slots at Genting are all multigame cabinets such as the IGT Multigame, Spielo Diversity & Novomatic Dominator which means there are lots of titles squeezed into a limited number of physical machines. The Diversity features the progressive jackpot games where up to £10,000 is available.
When you’re done on the slots you can try Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker and when you’re done with that, head for the bar which is open until 5.30am.
A Genting casino means there’s a Grosvenor not too far way and in fact there are two dotted around the centre of Glasgow. There’s one on Sauchiehall Stree, another on Glassford Street and one on the riverside called the Riverboat which used to be the and if you’re a regular at this chain then you’ll know what to expect.
The interiors are always plush and slots players can expect multigame cabinets from WMS Gaming, IGT and Novomatic. The usual table games are available – Poker, Blackjack, Roulette – and all have restaurants and bars which are worthy of the name.
