Gaming Floor

Genting Casino York Place is a small venue located in the centre of Edinburgh. The gaming floor offers a total of 8 live tables, however, there isn’t much space which can make it hard to move around especially on the busier evenings of the week.

As far as the gaming goes they have 4 American Roulette tables (£0.50 – £100) which are joined by 3 Blackjack tables (£3 – £100) and a single table of 3 Card Poker (£3 – £75). If you wish to play for higher stakes just speak to a member of staff who will try their best to accommodate your request.

York Place also offers 14 electronic roulette terminals alongside a decent selection of slot machines where you can win jackpots of up to £10,000!

Their Novamatic slots offer the added excitement of the Power Link progressive jackpots, all of which can be won from the minimum bet. Plus, the Mega Kong jackpot on the Diversity slots offers the chance of winning one of 4 progressive jackpots when playing Jungle Treasure or Jungle Queen.

Upstairs is mostly dedicated to the lounge and bar, however, you can also spin the reels on Lobestermania and Cleopatra for £4000 jackpots, play electronic roulette, or Mahjong!

Poker

There are unfortunately no poker tournaments or cash games offered at this casino. If you wish to play poker we suggest making the two-mile trip across the City to Genting Casino Fountain Park where you will find weekly tournaments and cash games 7 nights a week.

Alternatively, why not play online poker through your desktop, mobile or tablet device. All of our suggested sites are 100% safe and are licensed and regulated by the Great Britain Gambling Commission. What’s more, you can even get started 100% risk-free with your no deposit free bonus cash!

Bar & Restaurant

Due to the limited space, there is no dedicated restaurant at Genting Casino York Place. That does not mean you will go hungry though as meals, snacks and light bites are available from the Graze & Play menu at the bar.

Speaking of which, the late bar is an ideal place for relaxing with friends or watching live sport whilst enjoying a wide selection of cocktails, wines, spirits, beers and cider.

Promotions, Events & Entertainment

Genting often has 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, they were offering a free roulette tournament at the time of writing this review where the winner walks away with £250. They also had a great deal where you could enjoy the football and get a burger and a pint for just £5!

It is worth mentioning the Genting Rewards Program too. Simply sign up for free and you can collect points when you play on the tables or machines, plus every time 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

One of the easiest ways to get to the casino is by using the tram. Just hop off of either St Andrew Square or York Place, both of which are just a three-minute walk from the entrance. You can plan your journey here. Over 18 major bus routes also stop just opposite Dublin Street (Stop YH).

Due to its location, it is not easy to find any parking nearby. If you do wish to bring the car we suggest parking at Greenside Row by the Omni Centre. You can pre-book your space in advance on Q-Park’s website here.

Dress Code, Membership & ID

Smart casual is the general dress code. Identification is not necessary unless you look under the age of 25. Registration is not required, although we recommended you sign up for free in order to benefit from exclusive members only offers and promotions.

Summary

Inside Genting Casino York Place you will be able to play Blackjack, American Roulette and 3 Card Poker, plus there are electronic roulette machines and a selection of £10,000 jackpot slots to play on too. Unfortunately, due to size constraints, they do not offer any form of poker, nor do they have a dedicated restaurant on site.

All in all, it has the essentials you need to have a flutter but that's it. If you are seeking the complete casino experience we strongly suggest visiting Genting's Fountain Park Casino which is just 2 miles away.
