The south coast of the United Kingdom offers plenty of scope for visitors but one of the locations not normally associated with tourism is Portsmouth. Historically a naval city, it occupies the island of Portsea and there’s no doubt if offers a lively night out. Does it have any casinos though? Of course it does so read on to find out what’s on offer for slots fans in this historic city.
Situated on Commercial Road and just south of Cascasdes Shopping Centre is the Genting Electric. It’s not as big as some other Genting’s we’ve checked out but it’s very centrally located and easy to access, especially if you’re coming by train.
As with all Genting’s there’s a range of slots which include IGT, Novomatic and Spielo cabinets. Plenty are multi-gaming units so there are many more games to choose from than the actual number of machines. There are also now Storm Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) here to add to the fun. The individual games are largely recognisable and you’ll find Cleopatra, Lucky Lady’s Charm and Book of Ra here among others.
The size of the premises means there is no restaurant here but there is a bar open from 10:00am every day to keep your spirits us. The casino itself is open from 9am-5am every day.
There are two Grosvenor Casinos in Portsmouth – one at Gunwharf Quays and the other on Osborne Road just east of Clarence Pier.
Gunwharf Quays is a retail park on the west of the city and if you’re other half is spending the day shopping you may well fancy a visit to the casino. This 24/7 venue is a sizeable place with regular live music and a great restaurant and bar. Slots available are the usual Grosvenor staples such as IGT, WMS and Novomatic with plenty of multigame cabinets and progressive jackpots.
The Osborne Street venue is similar to Gunwharf Quay in the facilities it offers but it’s opening hours are slightly shorter – 10:00am until 05:00am every day. Both casinos offer live sport on their many big screens.
