Is the Toon on song when it comes to gambling?
It’s given the world a lot, Newcastle. The great British gangster movie Get Carter, Gazza, Lindisfarne, Gazza *and* Lindisfarne, VIZ Comic, Byker Grove, Ant and/or Dec – it’s quite a cultural heritage.
As anyone who’s been there can testify, Newcastle has also hosted some of the greatest nights out ever had in the United Kingdom. But away from the Bigg Market, what does the home of Brown Ale and St James’s Park have to offer the betting crowd?
Quite a lot as it happens. Okay, so there are only three casinos in town, but since two of them belong to the prestigious Genting and Grosvenor chains, quality is all but assured. That the Geordies are among the most affable people in the country further ensures that a friendly welcome and excellent service can be banked upon, too.
The fact that Alan Shearer and Sting’s hometown should have such excellent gambling facilities isn’t so surprising when you consider the city’s sporting heritage. Horse racing, a greyhound stadium, a football team only a fool would put their house on – it really is something of a punters’ paradise. And of course, even if your boat doesn’t come in, you couldn’t have a better town in which to drown your sorrows.
Yes, the town itself runs black and white, but if you’re more concerned about red and black, the town by the Tyne is your ideal destination. Put another way, get ready to enjoy a fine time with our friends in the north.
