GENTING NIGHTS
For a reasonable price, Genting offer parties roulette or blackjack lessons (taught by a professional croupier), a free play voucher and a 3 course meal.

This is the kind of deal that would suit groups of friends, who are celebrating, where some members of the party have never played in a casino.

 

Electronic Casino Games

While the electronic games are similar across all Genting Casinos, the Fountainpark Genting Casino offer more that the other Edinburgh casinos.  There are more games available and there is the recent addition of state-of-the-art Crystal Dual slot machines.

 

SLOTS

Genting Casino guarantee their customers a minimum average return to player percentage of 94% at slots.  

You’ll find progressive jackpots that go up to £10000.  In addition, there are Powerlink Jackpots.  If any player wins the Powerlink Jackpot, all other players (who are playing powerlink slots) win a share of 10% of the jackpot in points.

The slot machines at Genting Casinos are powered by on state-of-the-art IGT or Novomatic software

On the IGT multi-game machines, you can choose from 9 different slots games.   The term “multi-game” means that you can choose between a number of slots games on a single slot machine.  Popular games include Pharaohs Fortune, Cleopatra and Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania.

Popular Novomatic Slot games include Lucky Lady’s Charm, Lord of the Ocean, Book of Ra, Monkey King and God of Thunder.

Recent additions to the Genting’s array of slot machines, are the cutting edge IGT Crystal Dual slot machines.  These machines boast unparalleled reliability together with superior graphics.

 

GENTING E-TABLES

Genting e-tables are High Definition terminals where you can play live casino games from your own private betting terminal.  As with online live casinos, you can play live dealer games on Genting e-tables.  Available games include live dealer dealt 3-5 Multi-Win Poker and Baccarat.  There is also a Velocity Roulette game, where you don’t have to wait as long between spins.

 

Poker

The Genting Casino at Fountainpark is the best casino in Edinburgh to play poker.  They offer poker tournaments and cash games every night of the week.

 

Food and Drink

The Fahrenheit Bar

If you are planning on meeting up with friends at the casino, the Fahrenheit Bar is a good meeting place.  It’s also a nice place to go when you fancy a break from playing. 

The late bar offers a wide range of drinks and cocktails.  There is also an extensive bar menu.  The prices are very reasonable.

The casino offers a Cocktail Masterclass where you learn how to mix cocktails.  Then, you can mix 2 of your favourite cocktails and drink them in your own private booth. The Cocktail Masterclass has to be booked in advance.

 

The Fahrenheit Restaurant

If you fancy an A La Carte experience, you should check out the Fahrenheit Restaurant.  The food is excellent and inexpensive as well.  That’s not just my opinion. 

The Fahrenheit Restaurant has a 5 star rating on Tripadvisor.

 

Summary

If you are going to choose one casino in Edinburgh, the Genting Casino at Fountainpark is probably where you should be heading.  The casino is located close to the city centre and has parking facilities.

The casino provides more casino games and poker than the other Edinburgh casinos.  The newest game additions tend to be added to this Edinburgh Genting Casino before the others.

The casino is excellent venue for group events and celebrations.  For example, the Genting Nights and the Cocktail Masterclass may be suit group events, where some people in the group have never played in a casino.  Then, you also have the Fahrenheit Restaurant serving very good food. 

I highly recommend Genting Casino at Fountainpark, Edinburgh.
