Trying to recall my first ever visit to Glasgow there are very few things that I manage up from a very you scrambled by too many pints of ale and lager. The one name that stuck in my mind was Sauchiehall Street - mainly because I really could not get my hand around pronouncing the "ch" part of it. So when I saw that I had to visit the Genting Casino in Glasgow and found out that it was located on Sauchiehall Street, it was a pleasant trip down memory lane.

My perception is that it is a fairly central street because for some reason I always ended up on or near it during my visits to Glasgow. It is located close to the Charing Cross train station, making it accessible by public transport for both people coming from the city centre and the outskirts of Glasgow.

Without going through my life story - my other perception of Glasgow was that the city goes quiet sometime around 4 o'clock in the morning. Looking at the opening hours for the Genting Casino shows me that I was not that far off. The casino opens its doors at 12 noon and closes at 6am every day of the week.

Gambling Floor

After visiting a bunch of Genting casinos around the UK (I still have a few left) it is quite clear that one of the reasons for its widespread success is that they have very similar games across the board. With black and beige tables the casino offers a good range of classic casino games. American Roulette and Blackjack are at the main games promoted at the casino, with additional tables for Three Card Poker and Baccarat.

Poker is a game that I really love - and I was very pleased when I found out that the Genting Casino in Glasgow offers a dedicated Poker section for likeminded souls. Head over to the casino for a series of tournament or cash games on a regular basis. The schedule for the tournaments can be found in the Tournaments section of the review.

Restaurants, Bars and Leisure

It is a sad time for diners at the Genting Casino in Glasgow. From the 25th of November 2013 the casino will shut down its restaurant operations for a sizeable refurbishment. This means that no full dining options will be available until the end of January 2014, when the restaurant will open with a new look, feel and theme. Because of this I decided to leave out the restaurant part of this review - even though I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. So hopefully they will keep those winning concepts going over to the new restaurant in 2014.

What you can do is head over to the casino bar for a few drinks or a snack or two when the restaurant is closed. This is called the "Graze and Play" menu. It offers some "deluxe sandwiches" and light snacks and meals according to the casino.

Tournaments, Events and Promotions

Gamblers looking to find out what is going on at the Genting Casino in Glasgow will do so easiest by heading over to their updated website. Clicking the "What's On" link will show you all the latest events and promotions going on at the casino. The casino starts off this section by saying that they "offer a great range of promotions on our games plus fantastic food and drink offer".

The most hilarious thing about this casino is the person in charge of their website. I do not know who you are - but you give me a lot of laughs. On the promotions page he or she describes how "magical elves working away from the early hours of the morning to build a new look modern Genting Casino". But despite this there are still quite a few things going on at the casino, including live sports and entertainment.

Sports might be the biggest attraction for the local Glaswegians, with the Rangers-Celtic rivalry colouring the city like few others. They follow Celtic's chase for yet another title as well as Rangers battle to make their way back to the SPL.

Promotions can be found in a sub-menu on their website and shows you a good range of promotions on offer. This month they are rolling over two of their best offers yet, offering customers a cracking half price offer. Right now you can claim either a £5 Blackjack Bet or a £5 Slots play, for only 250 Genting Reward Points. All players playing Baccarat have a chance to win £16,000 without making any additional bets with the Instant Baccarat Bonus.

Poker lovers will enjoy the fact that tournaments are played five days a week, with two tournaments happening on some Wednesdays. Buy-ins are between £20 and £25 with guaranteed prize money reaching upwards of £2,500 - well worth playing for.

Why Genting Casino Glasgow?

The Genting Casino in Glasgow is not just a casino - it is a full on entertainment venue that offers gamblers, diners and drinkers a great night out. The only drawback on the entertainment venue part is that the casino does close for six hours every day. But most people will not be able to keep going for 24 hours each day so it might only be the really early birds that complain.

Dining is something that they take seriously at this casino - and that is why the venue is currently being refurbished to fit a brand new and exciting restaurant. If you are looking for a drink and some football there are few better places in Glasgow to go than the casino bar. Staff will serve you some lighter meals or snacks to keep your stomach full throughout the night.
