When you reach a certain age and have kids to look after, you soon begin to place a higher value on your spare time and in particular, those child free evenings. Trips down to the pub or a quick bite to eat at a local restaurant no longer cut the mustard.

If you’re looking for a jam-packed evening of thrills and spills to get the blood pumping and blow off the cobwebs, what about a night out at the casino? It’s the perfect way to unwind and have fun, without spending a fortune.

Recently more people have opted to play their favourite casino games online, mainly due to the convenience and easy access, as well as the bonuses providers offer such as no deposit bonuses, allowing players to play for less or even free!

Despite online casinos being a success, land-based casinos are still popular amongst those who want an evening out socialising with friends.

Not sure where to start? Fortunately we’ve done all the hard work and compiled the ultimate list to Yorkshire’s best casinos. Whether you’re out on the coast in Scarborough, in and about Leeds or as far south as Sheffield, we have you covered.

Read on to find out about Yorkshire’s very best casinos.

Grosvenor Casino

Folly Hall Mills

St Thomas Road




West Yorkshire is somewhat of a hub for gambling with plenty of casinos on offer in Leeds and Bradford, as well as this one in Huddersfield.


First opened in 2002, the Grosvenor has been the home of gambling in Huddersfield for two decades and was recently refurbished. Inside there is a great selection of games available to play as well as leisure facilities for the more casual gamer looking to unwind and relax.


On weekends the casino has been known to attract some of the best poker players in the county, so if you’re a cards novice, watch out!


The Opera House Casino

56-64 St Thomas Street


YO11 1DU


Remember summer holidays to Scarborough? Relaxing on the beach before going for a dip in the ice cold water? Ahh, great memories.


Well now you can go back and enjoy Scarborough without the fear of catching hyperthermia or breaking your teeth biting down on a piece of rock.


The Opera House is a great casino, located in a building that can trace its history all the way back to 1877 when it was initially a circus. Throughout the years the venue has gone on to host some of the biggest names in showbiz and now it hosts 3 bars and large selection of slots and table games.



Napoleons Casino & Restaurant

17 Livesey Street


S6 2BL


Going all the way from North Yorkshire to South Yorkshire, we find ourselves in the Steel City, which has a surprisingly large selection of casinos to choose from. Our favourite and one we think you’ll like too is Napoleons Casino & Restaurant out near Hillsborough.


Napoleons is a chain operating throughout Yorkshire and Lancashire, with this particular venue opening its doors to the public in 1996. Renowned for its high levels of customer service and extremely tasty menu, Napoleons Sheffield is the ideal place to go for a laid-back, enjoyable evening of gambling, eating, drinking and being merry.


Grosvenor Casino

15-16 Dock Street




When it comes to gambling in general, East Yorkshire is undoubtedly the best place in the county to go for the fun and excitement of horse racing. Why not then make the best of both worlds by heading to Beverley racecourse during the day to bet on the horses and then to the Grosvenor Casino in the evening to play roulette and blackjack?


Just opposite Queens Gardens, the Grosvenor Casino offers a host of table games and slot machines and has large screens showing all the action from Sky Sports. If that doesn’t sound like your thing, you can always head to Napoleons in Hull for a more laid-back vibe.



Victoria Gate Casino





What better place to finish than with the jewel in the crown? The best casino in Yorkshire by far, Victoria Gate Casino.


Opened in October 2016, the Victoria Gate Casino marked Leeds’ arrival as one of the most fashionable and up and coming cities in the UK. Visitors will be blown away by the experience of visiting this thriving and bustling casino.


When you’re not busy playing one of the many, many table games or slots, you can sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail in a beautiful ambience. Or, if you’re in the mood for excitement, you can head to one of the separate bars to watch live sports.


Be sure to dress up though as you’ll look out of place in jeans and a t-shirt!
