The opening date for the multi-million pound Victoria Gate Casino in Leeds, UK, has been revealed - along with details of its distinct bar and restaurant offering.
The largest casino in the north of England and Scotland will be unveiled to the public on Thursday, January 26. Operated by Global Gaming Ventures, it will be the third-largest casino in the UK. Patrick Noakes, venue director, said: “Leeds has never seen an entertainment destination like this before. We can’t wait for people to step through the doors and see the spectacular space for themselves. It’s a game changer, not just for casino fans but for the city as a whole. “Victoria Gate Casino will strengthen Leeds’ already diverse entertainment, dining and nightlife offering and will provide so much more than just gaming. Our three distinct venues - Live Bar, Curve and V Restaurant - will play a pivotal role in that.” With a capacity of 1,400, the casino will be one of the biggest entertainment venues in the city, with a 100-player poker room, 24 live gaming tables, 140 slot machines and 75 electronic gaming terminals. The casino, which is the first and only “super casino” in the north of England, occupies 50,000sq.ft and sits alongside John Lewis at the top of the city’s new Victoria Gate development.
