Casino diversity

Leeds is just one of the eight local authorities in the UK that have the powers to offer large casino licenses – meaning that it’s one of the few that can host what we refer to as a ‘Super Casino’. Though this is the case, the city doesn’t have as many casinos as expected. There are only eight casinos in total.Out of the eight casinos, only two can be rated or termed as Vegas like casinos. Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate, located at Wellington Bridge, UK and the recently launched Victoria Gate Casino located in Victoria Leeds. Other casinos located in different parts of the city include Casino Hire UK and Yorkshire Fun Casino. Ace of Spades Casino Party Hire, Casino Papa and Ace of Spades Mobile are all online casino portals, with their main offices within the city of Leeds.

Video slots

As far as video slots are concerned, they comprise of the major game selection in the city. Most of the casinos decided to replace the old fruit machines with the modern ones, which promise players much fun, and better pays. For example, after its £3 million refurbishment, Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate came acquired a license that allows for them to add 20 extra video slot terminals in the casino most of which are provided by some of the major software developing companies. Victoria Gate Casino, which was opened in October 2016, making it the largest casino in the North of England and Scotland also boasts of a number of video slot terminals, which amount to a total of 140 machines including popular titles such as Cleopatra, Golden Eagle among many others.The return to player percentage of some of these games offered at are high, just to ensure that you are always winning more frequently than not. For example, Victoria Gate Casino has an average audited progressive RTP of 96% in their games.

Jackpot slots

While the Vegas style casino – Victoria Gate in case you are wondering – might be of a colossal size, it doesn’t have much to offer in terms of jackpots. It only hosts a total jackpot prize of £20,000 though it’s projected that the number will increase as they get a much better license from the Leeds City Council Licensing Committee. Grosvenor Casino, the main competition, also lacks the jackpot appeal as it is home to games with a jackpot of £10,000.

Fruit machines

Last year, Dransfield Novelty Company, one of the oldest and leading suppliers of fruit machines in Leeds announced that they had a £11.4 million pre-tax profit. This was an indicator that even though the machines aren’t as popular as in the 90’s era, people are still playing them. But where are they located since they aren’t available in most of the big casino? We discovered that most of them are only located at the Pubs. Therefore, if you are still looking for old school amusement from the ‘one arm bandit’ machines, we highly suggest you visit those located in Hunslet, Leeds.
