Casino Games

You can play at live tables or at betting terminals at the Casino at the Corinthian.  The casino games include American Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker, Punto Banco, Classic Slots, Jackpot Slots and Electronic Roulette.

If you have never played any of these games, the casino offers free lessons.  Even if you know the rules of the games but have never played in a casino, the free lessons are useful.  There are certain rules that are specific to casinos.  For example, in most casinos, you are not allowed to touch your cards at a blackjack table. 

The first time I played in a casino, I got told off by the croupier for picking up my cards at the blackjack table.  As such, getting a free lesson may save new players a bit of embarrassment.

ELECTRONIC ROULETTE

Electronic roulette enables players to have more privacy.  You can play live or electronic roulette with your own private roulette terminal. 

The minimum bet is 10p and the maximum is £100 straight up (ie when betting on a single number).

 

SLOTS

You’ll find slots under the category of classic slots with jackpots of up to £4000.   Popular classic slots include IGT games, Lobstermania and Cleopatra. 

The casino has Super Gaminator machines on which you can play popular jackpot slots, such as Lucky Lady’s Charm, Dolphins Pearl, Lord of the Ocean and Rich Witch.  You can win up to £10000 on these machines.

The stakes on these games are from 40p to £5.

 

Poker

The Casino at the Corinthian has a Private Poker Room.   With the casino’s help, you can organise your own private poker game.  They offer Poker Room packages, bespoke drinks packages and hostess table service.   You’ll get your own croupier. 

It’s great that you can organise your own poker game.  However, there are no regular tournaments or cash games that you can join. 

If you are looking for a casino in Glasgow that offers a tournaments schedule and cash games, that you can join, I recommend the Alea on Springfield Quay.

 

Food and Drink

The Bars

The Casino at the Corinthian offers a range of cocktails, spirits and beers.  You can buy drinks until 6 am.  They also have a bottle keep service.  For example, if you buy a bottle of Johnnie Walker whisky (and you don’t finish it off), the casino will keep the bottle for you for the next time you visit.

 

The Food

The food is mainly bar-style food.  You can get substantial bar meals, such as cheese steaks, burgers, lemon chicken and fish and chips.  Alternatively, you can go for the lighter meals, such as Caesar Salad or Duck Spring Rolls.  Most of the vegetarian options are light meals.

If you are looking for a 3 course meal, there are loads of restaurants in the area.  There is a great restaurant in the Corinthian Club namely, the Teller’s Brasserie.  This is where you can experience fine dining.

The restaurants outside the casino don’t stay open as late as the casino.  However, bar meals and light bites are available until late.

 

Karaoke

The Casino at the Corinthian has a Private Karaoke Room for up to 20 guests.  You’ll get cutting edge latest multimedia technology such as a built in flat screen TV with integrated entertainment system.

The casino’s Karaoke Packages start at £20 per person, which includes a buffet and drink.

 

Summary

The Casino at the Corinthian is in a stylish building, which is conveniently placed in a fabulous location.  You’ve got the best in casino gaming, lots of games.

The casino has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff are warm and friendly.  

Although there is a poker room, there aren’t scheduled tournaments or cash games that you can join.  This is probably because the casino is on the small side.

If you are not looking for poker, I would say that the Casino at the Corinthian is one of the best casinos in Glasgow.
