Things could have been very different in Hull – not better necessarily, just different – if the plans to build the UK’s first supercasino had gone ahead. Hull was one of the locations vying for this mega-venue but the concept was dropped in 2008 and so this Yorkshire city must make do with two medium-sized casinos. Hull is a working class city which perhaps doesn’t have the draw of some other areas but it has a sizeable student population and is always a good night out. Read on for more information about the casinos.
Napoleon’s Casino is situated just to the west of the river on George Street and of course it’s part of the Napoleon’s chain of UK casinos dotted around the north of England & London.
The Hull venue caters for slots players with 18 machines which are a combination of IGT and Novomatics including multigame cabinets which means there’s always a varied choice of games available. There’s also a progressive jackpot of £10,000 available which would certainly contribute to a long night out.
There are several American Roulette tables, two Blackjack tables, Three Card Poker along with some electronic Roulette.
The restaurant at Napoleon’s is worth a visit even if you’re not up for any gambling; it has a high quality menu varied by month but there’s also a bar menu and a late night menu for some more relaxed dining. Opening hours are 2pm to 6am Monday – Friday, 4pm to 6am Saturday and midday to 6am Sunday.
There may not be a Genting Casino in Hull but there is a Grosvenor and it’s situated on Dock Street, opposite Queen’s Gardens and it’s open from midday until 6am every day.
Like other Grosvenors it caters pretty well for slots players with IGT, Novomatic and WMS Gaming multigame cabinets but away from the spinning reels you can try your hand at Poker, Roulette and Blackjack.
There’s no restaurant here but the bar serves a range of food and drinks when refreshment is necessary and the big screen TVs show the big sporting events.
