Casino gaming is considered by many to be one of the most popular pastimes in the UK, with such casinos often seeing huge turnouts either as the precursor or end to a night out, or even for play all round the clock. The online gambling regulations are among the most advanced in the world and this has actually resulted in increased turnout at casinos up and down the country as players look to combine their newly acquired gambling skills with the social aspect that land based casinos are well regarded for.
Somewhat surprisingly, while casino gaming is of course legal and massively popular, the actual casino blueprint in the country does not necessarily follow that of others. Whereas some countries boast massive gaming complexes with only one or two in each major city, cities and towns across the UK virtually all boast multiple gaming venues and what they may lack in size, they more than make up for in sheer quality. Indeed, there have been a number of attempts to introduce so called “super casinos” in the country but proposals have never got past the planning stage. Nevertheless, the UK has plenty of action for both locals and visitors.
As with most countries, the gaming landscape is dominated by a number of big names. By far the most recognisable to the majority of the population are Gala, Grosvenor and Genting who are all represented in the largest cities, together with some smaller and independent names.
