Cardiff casinos

Find out where you can have a Wales of a time.

There may well be a welcome in the hillsides but it’s safe to say that Wales isn’t the most casino-friendly of countries, Wales.

Swansea, for example, is now down to just one venue, The Grosvenor on the high street, although admittedly there have been talks about reopening the city’s Aspers Casino. Meanwhile, Cardiff -so modern and forward-looking in many ways – is down to just two casinos now that the Gala Electric Circus has closed for business.

While it might want for variety, you can’t argue with the quality of Cardiff’s establishments. As befits a city in the very rudest of health, the casinos couldn’t be more up to the minute. The Grosvenor G has the added advantage of being located in the Atlantic Wharf development, a product of perhaps Europe’s most successful regeneration project.

And if two casinos appears a little stingy, it’s worth bearing in mind that Cardiff is pretty small as capital cities go. Indeed, the 300,000-or-so people who reside by the River Taff haven’t too much to complain about, what with the city’s range of world-class sports venues providing the avid gambler with a wide variety of options.

It’d be wrong to say that if you’ve been to one Grosvenor G casino, you’ve seen them all.

Having first opened for business way back in 1968, it’s with some confidence that Les Croupiers can claim to be the oldest casino in Wales. Not that the venue is still in its original location – it transferred from St Mary Street to the Capital Retail Shopping Park in early 2015. Les Croupiers Mk. Deux features a sports bar, a superb Chinese restaurant, a special smoking area and all your favourite table games and slots. Les Croupiers is dead – long live Les Croupiers!
