The Best UK Casino Events in 2022
For years, casinos around the world have been about far more than just slots, blackjack, roulette and poker. To attract customers, casinos host a range of entertainment from superstar pop performers to blockbuster pay-per-view sporting events. Let’s take a look at the best UK casino events you’ll be able to attend in 2022.
Magic Mike Live at The Hippodrome Casino, London
Casino games can have a very masculine image, but this event is something for the ladies. The Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square has a long history as an entertainment venue, so it’s a prime spot for the cast of this sexy musical to strut their stuff onstage. Guests can enjoy a pre-theatre dinner at the casino’s in-house steak restaurant before being treated to bottomless champagne during the performance.
Magic Mike Live runs eight times a week from Wednesday to Sunday.
Orchestras, magicians and more at Genting Casino Westcliff
From Magic Mike to magic night. From “woodwind instruments” to actual woodwind instruments. The Genting Casino Westcliff hosts varied nights of entertainment across the calendar year. Highlights from the first few weeks of 2022 included The Alex Mendham Orchestra and a tribute to Bob Marley.
In the coming months, guests can look forward to live magic shows, and a romantic valentine’s evening with Joe Gibson.
Live DJs at The Empire Casino, London
If Magic Mike wasn’t enough high-tempo club action for you then the other side of Leicester Square boasts a mixture of cards and classic club beats each Friday and Saturday. The Empire Casino clears gaming tables for a dancefloor at 10pm each weekend in a free-to-enter party zone.
Sporting fan zones at casinos nationwide
Casino bar and event spaces are often used to broadcast major sporting events. A prime example of this is the upcoming Super Bowl clash between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. The long match goes on until the wee small hours in the UK, but that’s not a problem for the late-night world of casinos. If you’re a fan of the NFL then it might be worth giving your local casino a ring to see if they’ll have a big screen and a beer for you.
