Whether you’re looking for a great stag venue, a place to head after a Superleague match, or you just want to unwind at a casino and try your luck playing online, table games like roulette and blackjack make a great change of pace from dancefloors or bars.
But where can Warrington natives find classy casinos that offer a blend of service, exciting games, great value, and the elegance we’d expect from these institutions?
They don’t always get their message across to the masses, but there are actually some great spots for table gambling in the Warrington area. Most are within a short cab journey or even train ride from the town centre, so if you’re looking for a social venue with something different, they could be right up your street. Let’s get to know a few options to help you plan your night out.
Where not to go: Admiral
Firstly, although the company provides a great service for slot machine fans, it’s important to note that Warrington’s own Admiral Casino is a little misleading. You might see it listed on Google Maps as a “casino”, but that’s not exactly true. It’s really just a high street store with a few slots. Those slots are pretty strong, with plenty of fun to be had, but it’s not the kind of upscale experience we’re talking about here.
Getting to Know Genting Wirral
Moving up the luxury scale, Genting Wirral is more like it. Located on Oxton Road in Birkenhead, it’s around 20 miles from Warrington, but it’s worth the extended cab ride or drive. Players can slip instantly into absorbing roulette sessions, or pit their wits against Merseyside’s elite in poker matches. And there’s the less intense, but still satisfying option of blackjack, as well as endless slots. Bundle in the late bar and restaurant, and this is what we want from a big night out.
Get a Taste of Vegas at Manchester235
Again around 20 miles from Warrington, Manchester235 goes a little further in trying to conjure up a unique atmosphere – in this case the glitz of Las Vegas. There’s a gourmet James Martin restaurant on-site, which adds to the occasion, various bars, and live entertainment all night long. Gamblers can focus their attention in a dedicated poker lounge, or take it easy on lively roulette tables. And there are extra perks like drink deals and live sports. So, it’s a great spot for a night on the town.
Take a Punt on Liverpool’s Grosvenor Casino
Finally, back in Liverpool you’ll find the Grosvenor Leo. Situated right next to Queens Dock, this premium casino is within walking distance of Liverpool Central Station, and it provides everything you could need – from two cocktail bars to gourmet food and daily Texas Hold ‘Em competitions. Even better for stag parties, Ghetto Golf is next door, letting you mix up a few rounds of crazy golf and a couple of hours on the roulette table, before heading back to Warrington.
So, while Warrington itself isn’t blessed with amazing casinos, the wider region around, or online, offers some great entertaining. Don’t feel limited to local bars or clubs. The north west is packed with alternatives – and gambling is always a good way to pass an evening with friends.
