The Best Casinos in Edinburgh

Gala Casino Edinburgh

We all know that Scotland’s capital city provides everything you could possibly want in terms of a night’s entertainment and is a match for anywhere in the UK. OK so Edinburgh may not often be mentioned in the same breath as Las Vegas but if you like to spend some time at the roulette wheel or the card tables, there is a great choice of casinos throughout the area.

Online casino play continues to build but there’s nothing like the atmosphere of live gaming and here are some of Edinburgh’s best establishments.

Genting Club, Dundee Street

Genting are one of a number of operators who provide an online presence along with a chain of casinos across Great Britain. One of the benefits of using Genting as a chain provider is the number of offers they provide and if you subscribe online then you can keep up to date.

Some may say that the atmosphere is a little different and it can be a bit ‘corporate’ but this is an establishment that caters for both serious players and for those who want a bit of fun on a night out in Edinburgh. Stakes are very fair too and start at a low £3.00 on most tables.

Grosvenor Maybury, South Maybury

If you like things to be a little more intimate then the Edinburgh Maybury is a perfect choice. This is where the locals like to go and that’s usually the best recommendation you can get for any entertainment provider.

It’s also a noted location in terms of food and tends to score well on independent travel review sites so many just check in for a meal without even making it to the gaming floor.

This is a small casino with 12 live gaming tables and a selection of slots but the atmosphere is busy and lively as a result. It tends to be a location for the more serious player and you may have to wait to get on those slot machines but a visit to the Maybury is a definite part of the Edinburgh experience.

Genting, York Place.

While this particular brand tends to dominate the casino landscape on the capital, each of Genting’s locations offers something a little different and while York Place isn’t built on the same grand scale as its Dundee Street counterpart, there is a more relaxed and intimate feel behind the doors.

This outlet also scores well in terms of location and its convenient position next to the busy St James Shopping centre attracts a number of occasional punters.

The York Place branch features seven tables and a number of machines and as it opens from 2 am to 6 am, it’s definitely one for the ‘Night Owls’ and a perfect way to end a night in Edinburgh.

Genting, Leith

Another Genting establishment and a destination for the best night out in Leith, this casino has been noted as one of the best for new players with helpful dealers happy to take time out and talk you through the rules of each game. This can therefore be more of a tourist destination so if you are more of a serious / professional player then you may want to avoid the delays.

Like all of the casinos owned by this brand, there is an option to register online so if you’ve planned your play ahead of time, signing up will speed your entry.

Casinos form just part of the entertainment on offer in Edinburgh and while there is a relatively small selection, there is something to match every standard of player, whether you’re here for the night or just want to spend a leisurely hour or two with small stakes.

Online Casinos

Of course in this modern age you can play casino online from the comfort of your own armchair.  There are literally thousands of online casinos to choose from.

We recommend trying Red Flush online casino at where as a new player you can benefit from EUR 1000 in new player casino bonuses!

Remember to bet sensibly and gamble only what you can afford to lose.  Have fun!
