Gaming at Grosvenor Casino Sunderland
Gala Sunderland was the name of the establishment before the Rank Group purchased it in 2013. Now, it is known as Grosvenor Casino Sunderland. In addition to a decent selection of slot machines from manufacturers like IGT and Novomatic, there are 14 live tables available for you to play inside.
They have plenty of space to move around as their four American roulette tables, five blackjack tables, and two three-card poker tables are arranged in pairs down the long, slender gaming floor. Additionally, you have the choice of spinning the Big Six Wheel or rolling the dice at their craps table.
Although it is always a good idea to check with the casino directly to confirm table limits, at the time of our stay, bets on American Roulette and Blackjack could each be up to £400 and $2,000, respectively. Three Card Poker had a maximum ante of £400.
They have all of the most well-known slot machines, including Cleopatra, Pharaoh’s Fortune, and Lobstermania, which offer payouts of up to £4,000. Additionally, you can play for large progressive jackpots worth up to £10,000 on a variety of Super V+ Gaminator devices there.
The numerous terminals that fill the right side of the casino allow fans of electronic roulette to play live games for as little as 10p per turn.
If playing poker is more your style, you’ll be happy to learn that Grosvenor Sunderland hosts a number of tournaments, such as Bounty Hunter, Win The Button, and Deepstack, five evenings a week. As always, early registrants will receive 10% more beginning chips if they sign up before the 7:30 pm start time.
All day long, cash games of £1/£1, £0.50/£0.50, £1/£2 No Limit Hold’em, and £1/£2 Omaha are played. Check out the Grosvenor Sunderland Facebook page or get the Poker Live App for the most recent details.
