Scotland’s Top casinos

Genting Casino, Leith

Described as less focused on glamour but also a friendly casino, particularly for novices, this guarantees the best night out in Leith. Friendly dealers are more than happy to chat to you and help you understand the games, so it doesn’t matter how experienced you are.

There’s a smart casual dress code and a very relaxed vibe. The usual table games, including poker, roulette and slots are on offer and there are also great seasonal promotions so if you’re visiting over Christmas or New Year you could be in for a treat.

If you’re heading to Scotland on holiday and you’d like to have a bit of gamble while you’re there then you’re in luck. Along with the fantastic scenery, varied and vibrant cities and all round excellent experience tourists have when they go to Bonnie Scotland, there are plenty of great casinos around as well.

Edinburgh Maybury Casino, Edinburgh

This is also a small casino but hugely popular with the locals. It offers a limited number, but high quality, slot machines and 12 live gaming tables, so there is plenty going on at all times. You can play poker, blackjack and roulette and there are cash tables for Texas hold ‘em which makes the casino popular with poker lovers. You can also enjoy playing or watching poker tournaments, which is always great fun. Slots are available from midday till 5am and the live games during the same timeframe and you can start playing cash poker at 8pm.

 

The Alea, Glasgow

This is owned by Caesars Entertainment and as you’d expect brings a touch of Vegas glamour to Scotland’s second city. It’s billed as an elegant, ultra modern casino and that’s exactly what it is. No seediness here, just glitz, glam and a great night out.

 

You can game every day of the week from 2 in the afternoon to 6 the next morning and there are plenty of bars and restaurants for when you need a break from the tables. Book out the VIP gaming room or just hit the main tables, whichever you prefer. There are also lots of different packages for parties if you want to book a very special stag do or hen night, for example.

 

A wide range of games including blackjack, poker and roulette means there’s something for everyone. Entry is free and you don’t have to become a member, so you can just go out if you wish – staff are friendly and a good time is promised!

 

Soul Casino, Aberdeen

This casino is on the small side, so is great if you just want to pop in for a few games of poker or you’re put off by large crowds or loud evenings. As well as a few slot machines there are all the classics like roulette and blackjack, however, the casino doesn’t offer cash games for poker so that’s something to bear in mind. If you are in Aberdeen, but you could always get your fix online at somewhere like Lucky Nugget Casino if you want to bet for money on poker. There are only 15 land based casinos in Scotland so it’s possible you might be out of range and this is where online casinos can come in very useful!
