Grosvenor Casino Russell Square is a relatively new member of the Rank Group as it was formerly owned by the Gala group up until May 2013. Since their acquisition of the site Grosvenor have taken the opportunity to invest in a great selection of games that will cater to all tastes and budgets.
Six Roulette tables along with games of Blackjack and Three Card Poker are positioned in the centre of the room underneath the huge chandelier and are the focal point of the compact gaming floor.
High stake gamblers will enjoy the ability to place up to £400 straight up on Roulette or £5,000 on even money chances.
Fort Knox slots and electronic roulette terminals that can be played from as little as 10p can also be found at either end of the room. In addition, there is a large collection of jackpot slots which take up the entire far side wall which include IGT multi-game, Admiral Novaline and Super V+ Gaminator machines.
Unfortunately, they do not offer any tournaments here at Grosvenor Russell Square Casino. Cash games are also limited to just one table at £50 – £500 buy-ins and £1/£2 blinds.
If you are looking for a regular schedule or just fancy some 24/7 cash games then you might want to check out Grosvenor’ sister casino The Victoria which houses one of the largest poker rooms in Europe.
Alternatively, why not visit one of our online partners where you can start playing online poker 100% risk-free with your no deposit cash?
Bar, Restaurant & Entertainment
Snacks, nibbles, and a selection of grills and mains are served at the bar throughout the day along with an extensive choice of beers, wines and cocktails.
The lounge area is a little on the small side and can get rather crowded in the evenings. Seating is limited to a single booth and a few chairs and bar stools with entertainment limited to one screen that broadcasts the latest from Sky Sports.
The 34 seater restaurant is situated in a rather unattractive open plan room just off the main corridor between reception and the gaming floor. The small chandeliers above the tables are a nice touch, however, the location really isn’t the best since everyone that is entering or leaving the casino has to walk straight past.
Diners that can forget about the surroundings will enjoy a delicious à la carte menu that includes a small selection of international cuisine, steaks, grills, and fish along with burgers, pasta, and fresh salads.
Promotions, Offers & Events

Promos & Events
Grosvenor Casino Russell Square might not feature the most extensive gaming floor around but it does the job for your standard gambler. Customers can enjoy a flutter on classic tables such as Roulette or Blackjack, or alternatively, spin the reels on their decent selection of slots that feature progressive jackpots. It is also worth mentioning that the service and staff are excellent here too.
On the downside, the only poker on offer is a single cash table, the bar area is extremely small and although the food at the restaurant tastes great its location really isn't the best.
All in all, it is a perfectly pleasant site for the average gambler, however, anyone that wishes to play poker, or make the most of a bar or restaurant should look elsewhere.
