Behind Newcastle Central Station you will find a building dedicated to entertainment, food, drinks and gambling. The Genting Casino in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is a place where gamblers can gate away from the drunken students on the streets and the endless amount of kebab shops catering to the early hours of the morning.

The casino itself is housed in a purpose-built venue which lights up an otherwise dull industrial area just behind the central train station. With the location comes the perk of having a great deal of parking spaces in an otherwise very crowded city centre.

The Geordies love a bit of gambling, no matter what time of the day it is. The Genting casino opens its doors to gamblers at 12 noon and does not kick you out until the clock hits 7am. Between those two hours of the day you can enjoy endless amounts of gambling, good food, good drinks and entertainment in one of the most modern gambling establishments in the North East of England.

Genting Casino: Venue Details

Gambling Floor

Your first impression once you step inside this casino will be how grand they make everything look. The black/gray welcome desk has some a bunch of bright lights hanging behind it. The high ceiling makes the venue seem massive as well. But once you turn to the right and head over to the casino area you will instantly walk in to a much lower area of the casino where that narrower casino feeling comes to life. There are a lot of games on offer, including American Roulette and Blackjack. Other games involve Baccarat, Three Card Poker, Big Six, Electronic Roulette and a series of slot games.

With such a large and modern venue it is almost expected that it has a Poker section. Tournaments and cash games are available on a regular basis at the Genting Casino in Newcastle. It is worth noting that you need to register with your Genting Reward card at the cash game table before you are able to participate in the games.

Restaurants, Bars and Leisure

New casino means new restaurant and the one at the Genting Casino in Newcastle really delivers. Genting casinos use the Fahrenheit brand with a fairly similar menu across the board and the same goes for the one in Newcastle. The dining area is nicely cut off from the gambling area with a high ceiling and nice décor. Booths and tables are available across the restaurant with some higher chairs and tables for just the casual drink.

The excellent bar offers lighter meals and snacks. Genting calls this menu "Graze and Play" and it has been implemented at almost every casino bar across the United Kingdom. Snacks like Nachos with Cheese, sandwiches and prawns are all available for the hungry gambler to enjoy. If you are after something to drink then they also have an excellent selection of spirits, wines and beers.

Tournaments, Events and Promotions

Gamblers looking to find out what is going on at the Genting Casino in Newcastle will do so easiest by heading over to their website. Clicking the "What's On" link will show you all the latest events and promotions going on at the casino.

Newcastle might not be famous for offering a huge amount of entertainment (it is mainly famous for drunken reality stars and footballers) - but the Genting Casino has done a bit to change that. The Karaoke room in the casino is almost legendary - with some excellent tunes and singers dropping by from time to time. If Karaoke is not your thing then you might enjoy all the live sports on offer. Almost every single Newcastle United game is broadcasted at the casino, along with other top games from the English Premier League.

One of the more interesting parts of this casino is the Mah Jong room. It is beautifully decorated with enough tables to eat 24 people at the same time. This is a great place for private games or to organize bigger events with friends or co-workers. Mah Jong sets can be borrowed from the casino if you do not want to bring your own.

Few Genting casinos in the UK put as much effort in to their promotions as the one in Newcastle. Most of the promotions will be limited to a specific month so it is well worth visiting the Promotions section on their website for exact details of ongoing promotions. Just as a few examples I will tell you about the current Daily Loyalty Deals - where you get reward points that you can use on specific games every day of the week. Every Monday at midnight there is a complimentary Chinese Buffet for starving gamblers. There are a bunch of dining promotions running all the time, including burger and a beer for just £5.

Why Genting Casino Newcastle?

Anyone who has ever seen my reviews will know I have great love for the North East of England - and Newcastle in particular. I did my best not to let my bias cloud my judgment when I wrote this review. The Genting Casino in Newcastle is a venue that matches up to some of the best casinos in the area. One of its greatest strengths is that the building was created just for the casino - with the needs and demands of gamblers in mind.

The gambling floor has a really good number of games that will attract the attention of almost any gambler. With Poker and Mah Jong areas it goes above and beyond most casinos in the area. The dining facilities are great, some of the best in Newcastle, with a bar that serves excellent drinks while providing you with just enough sporting action to wind down after a bit of gambling.
