Nottingham - home to the best team in Europe in 1978 and 1979. They were a football powerhouse that crumbled to the lower leagues and is still searching for its glory days. Nottingham has always had a special place in my heart - due to the 1979 European Cup Final. The Genting Casino in Nottingham did not really have that effect on me - but it is still a memorable place to visit.

The casino is located inside The Corner house, an entertainment and shopping venue that holds everything from cinemas to restaurants. If you are heading there with public transport your best bet is to get off at the Royal Centre Tram Stop. Drivers will have to venture along the streets of Nottingham to the S Sherwood Street and try to find parking in the city.

The Genting Casino in Nottingham opens its doors to gamblers at 12 noon and shuts them at 6am. However, it is well worth noting that live gambling is only available from 2pm and until that point you can only use the electronic gambling machines in the casino.

Genting Casino: Venue Details

Gambling Floor

The entrance to the Genting Casino in Nottingham is one that has baffled me since the first time I saw it. The massive Genting sign does not hang over a couple of doors, instead you have to walk through it, turn left and head up the stairs. Located right next to the cinema it is very easy to find but not as glamorous as you might expect from a casino entrance. There are a lot of games on offer, including American Roulette and Blackjack. Other games also include Three Card Poker, Electronic Roulette and a series of slot games.

The biggest disappointment - almost as big as Roy Andersson not being able to play in that 1979 final - is that the casino does not have a dedicated Poker section. Even though it is not the biggest casino in the country there could have been space to squeeze in a Hold 'Em table or two to keep the Poker fanatics like myself happy.

Restaurants, Bars and Leisure

Limited space means that some corners have to be cut. In the case of the Genting Casino in Nottingham it means that there is no dining area - and no restaurant. Instead you have to head over to the Late Bar, the place where gamblers go to wind down after a bunch of hands or to start the night. The excellent bar offers lighter meals and snacks as a substitute to the large meals that you might expect from a restaurant. 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 Nottingham 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.

Bosse Larsson missed the 1979 European Cup Final due to injury - the iron man who never missed a game. But if the game would have been played in Nottingham at least he could have enjoyed the great promotions offered by the Genting Casino in the city. These days he could have watched the Sky Sports large TV coverage at the casino with its multiple HD screens showing some of the latest and most exciting sporting events from all over the world.

Promotions at most Genting Casinos are usually related to months and seasons - and so is this one. Make sure that you keep yourself up to date with what promotions are being run and the ones that I write about here are just examples of promotions on when I wrote my review. One of the promotions currently on means that you get double reward points on the new reward slot machines on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The biggest thing to keep in mind whenever you visit a Genting casino is to be a member of their Reward Scheme. The Ikiosks spread out around the casinos are great for finding promotions that run at all the casinos and specific ones for the one that you are visiting. You will also collect reward points that you can use for food, drinks or to get some free gambling chips to use on certain games.

Why Genting Casino Nottingham?

The Genting Casino in Nottingham offers a really nice venue with great games and good entertainment. The gambling floor is well laid out with the most basic and popular casino games on offer. Parking is available in the area and you will get a reduced parking fee if you are visiting the casino during the later hours of the day. The central location of the casino makes it very accessible from most parts of Nottingham and the building it is in has more than enough restaurants to make up for the lack of one in the Genting Casino.

If you are looking for a place to chill out or wind down after a few hands then you should visit the excellent Late Bar - also offering some nice snacks and lighter meals. Promotions are not that well-advertised on their website but there are loads of them once you set your foot in the casino.

And for the record - I support the other team, the second best team in Europe in 1979, Malmö FF. The place that Nottingham has in my heart is not one built on love - it is built on jealousy, rejection and knowing that they will always be number one. And now they have a great casino too...
