5 Abbey Road, Torquay, TQ2 5NR
Genting Torquay took over the premises of the former Mint Casino back in 2013. The main gaming floor features a total of 10 classic games positioned in the centre of the room. Four tables of American Roulette and three Blackjack tables are joined by single tables of Baccarat, Three Card Poker and Crazy 4 Card Poker.
Stakes range from £1 – £500 on Roulette and £5 – £1000 on Baccarat. A full list of the minimum and maximum stakes can be found on the official site and should suit most budgets, however, higher maximums are available upon request.
Surrounding the walls of the main floor underneath the balcony area you will find 14 Sabre electronic roulette terminals that accept bets of 25p up to £100. These machines are complemented by a number of modern multi-game slots that are packed with favourites such as Pharaohs Fortune, Cleopatra, Lord of the Ocean and Book of Ra. The majority of these slots provide the opportunity to play for jackpots of up to £10,000.
Poker takes place above the main floor on the balcony. Texas Hold’Em tournaments are held 4 nights a week plus Texas Hold’Em and Omaha cash games are available every night.
Poker tournaments run most evenings with guaranteed prize pools up to £35,000. If you register for any of the tournaments in advance you receive 1000 extra chips (500 extra on Wednesdays). A poker league also runs every month.
If you do not yet know how to play Poker we suggest visiting the casino on a Wednesday night from 7:30 pm where the helpful dealers will explain the rules and teach you the basic gameplay.
