Genting Casino Chinatown will transport you to the heart of Asia where all games are played in a relaxed and friendly environment. The casino opened in March 2013 and whilst it might not be the biggest around but they still offer a decent choice of 13 tables.
These have mostly been arranged into pairs in order to maximise available floor space and include 4 American Roulette tables, 4 Blackjack tables, and 5 Baccarat tables. If it’s your first time in the casino or if you need a quick refresh on how to play don’t be shy, just ask one of the helpful staff who will be more than happy to show you how to play the games.
Minimum stakes are some of the lowest in London with bets of just 50p accepted on roulette. This may suit some of the newer players or those who wish to make their money last. Stakes are £0.50 – £200 on roulette, £5 – £3000 on blackjack, £10 – £5000 on baccarat and £0.25 – £50 on the electronic roulette terminals.
In addition to these games, you will also find 10 of the latest slot machines boasting fan favourites such as Cleopatra and Rainbow Riches where jackpots can reach an incredible £10,000.
There are unfortunately no poker tournaments or cash games offered at the venue at this time.

Bar & Restaurant
The restaurant offers a fine dining experience and much like the rest of the casino the decor follows a red and brown theme.
They serve a great selection of Pan Asian dishes from its À la carte menu plus there are small plates of traditional rice and noodles. Opening hours are from 7 pm – 2 am and prices are more than reasonable with main meals starting from as little as £6.
A wide selection of cocktails, wines, spirits, beers and ciders are served at the bar. The full menu can be seen here however if you can’t decide we highly recommend the Melon Ball or the Bellinis Fahrenheit sparkler.
Promotions, Events & Entertainment.
Genting Chinatown frequently have a number of promotions and offers on their games, drinks, and food. These change regularly so it’s worth checking the official website to see what you can take advantage of on your next visit.
As an idea as to what you can expect at the time of writing they were offering a complimentary buffet and dance, plus free entry into a prize draw at the end of the month where the top winner would scoop £1000 worth of gaming funds.
They venue used to have a karaoke area when they first opened, however, this was replaced by an extra gaming table which has left little in the form of side entertainment besides Sky Sports that shows all of the latest sporting action over at the bar.
It is worth joining the Genting Casino Rewards Program where you can collect points every time you play at the tables or slots, or anytime you purchase food or drink. Collected points can be redeemed against games, meals, and drinks at any of the Genting properties across the UK.
Parking & Transport
Genting Casino Chinatown is located on Shaftesbury Avenue, just south of Soha Square Gardens and is perfectly positioned within walking distance of 4 tube stations. which are Piccadilly Circus, Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and Covent Gardens.
Q-Park Chinatown is the preferred parking partner of the casino who offers 306 underground spaces which can be pre-booked in advance.
Dress Code, Membership & ID
Smart casual is the general dress code here. Identification is not necessary unless you look under the age of 21. Registration is not required and anyone over the age of 18 is welcome.
Promos & Entertainment
Genting Chinatown is a relatively small casino but it has a decent selection of gaming tables and a great atmosphere. The venue itself is easily accessible thanks to its convenient location between four of London's main tube stations, plus it is open 24 hours a day so you can pop in for a flutter whenever you fancy.
The only big disappointment is the complete lack of poker tables, so if its poker you're looking for in the nearby area we suggest a short 2-minute walk to the Hippodrome Casino.
