    Played 1/2 at the poker room on a Saturday night, comments below:

    At 6:00 on a Saturday evening I waited about 30 minutes for a seat, not too bad.

    There's no amplification or texting /etc. that I could see/hear - so once you're on the list you have to keep an eye on the queue.

    Was a very enjoyable evening - having a few hours to play while in London. Table mates were from all over the place. Level of play was below what I expected - pretty much like the states at this level.

    Table service, quality of the dealers, all the basics A+

    Thank you!

    The Vic is still one of the premier poker lounges in the UK. The main issue over the years has been understaffing, which is now acute. While the night-time table service can be insufferably slow, this is a problem in almost every casino, not unique to the Vic.

    In recent times, the pit on level one has been "reformed", not necessarily for the better, with my favourite pit game, Caribbean Stud, having been removed.

    Most of the staff are professional and courteous (perhaps with the odd exception but I am not wont to name names personally on here).

    Experience is very good and all of the staff from the front desk to the bar staff, the only issue I had was the roulette tables only having chips at £5 which is very extreme especially in the current climate. If you could change this back to £1 or £2 tables I would have spent the night. I understand the machines have this capability, however I do come for the experience as machines are everywhere. Just a suggestion

    Let me be clear I am a fan of the Empire casino. Staff are amazing, drinks are high quality & cleanliness is immaculate. However… there is an online feedback survey where you are awarded some free points by way of thanks for completion.
    Normally never an issue with free points which take 1 or 2 weeks to show up. Last survey I did 8 weeks ago… no points.
    In the past I have detailed the one other occasion this problem occurred and the staff added the points manually.
    This time round I have spoken to three 3 duty managers in 4 weeks. Each one investigated sent emails to head office & each promised the points would be added as promised.
    Guess what? STILL NO points (as of today)
    What is going wrong? Maybe due to change of ownership something got dropped in the transfer.
    But now apparently difficult or impossible to solve!!!
    At my wits end but kind of misleading a customer is bad faith & defo should NEVER be done in principle by gambling sector company.
    Latest is I have been given Head Office number but for such a trivial issue I’m obviously reluctant to call them.
    Aside from this I would give 5/5 wonder why this cannot be fixed at the venue end. Sigh…

    This is a fine casino, mostly table games, and with classy and calm decor and lighting. The dealers were terrific, skillful and personable. The gaming experience here is much recommended.

    Blackjack rules are as standard in Europe: 3:2 blackjack, dealer stands on soft 17. In the afternoon, the minimum blackjack bet was £10, and this rises as the evening progresses. There are relatively few slots, which adds to the positive ambience.

    No good words to say about entry. The unfriendly bouncers at the door clearly think it's their job to discourage customers, growling for ID and making the encounter unpleasant. This was my first post-pandemic trip to Palm Beach and it was a literal rude awakening. This should be an easy fix for management.

    I just love this place. It's not that big so it's cozy and very friendly. I have never seen a place with people who work there so professional and friendly at the same time. If you think about visiting London Park Lane Club is the best option with an excellent hotel to host. Just because I love this place and come every week they gave me a complimentary card to keep playing on the machines for an hour. It is simply the nicest casino I have ever known.

    Visited yesterday after being unable to since March 2020 . Everything was looking good. The new menu was fantastic and very reasonable prices too. And the staff were friendly - in particular Mylene who was a perfect host and her customer service is the best I have received in a long time.
    Look forward to visiting again soon.

    Booked the fan experience for the England game last night. Was a brilliant view with a massive screen and amazing plush surroundings. Staff were really friendly and had a great time. The only complaint was that the oackage itself was supposed to include £15 per person to use at the bar. But it turns out we couldn't use the vouchers for drinks and instead had to use them as free chips on the tables. Bit annoying as we would have rather have been able to use them as the package said.

    Warmly welcomed on arrival,.We were ask to join, but it's FREE and all I had to do was flash my passport We were offered a casino tour, given a match bet, and free drinks voucher. Nice welcome! Insider the casino we found it small, the receptionist joked and called it cosy. From memory I'd say it only had 4 or 5 roulette tables with a low, low 50p minimum-totality (amazballs for london), around the same amount of blackjack tables, and I believe I saw something like a punto table and a few other punto type card games(?) (I like swamping the roulette tables with colours, might give 21 a go but I've never really been interested in games like punto banco just feels like a coin toss on red or black to me. so apologises if I've got it wrong and the other games ain't punto). Great atmosphere, friendly staff. I defo recommend checking it out.

    I was expecting electronic curtains.

    the room is good size, the bathrooms are comfortable, has a hygiene sprayer. bring your own toiletries, the elements did not work great with my hair.

    Amazing service and hospitality. Smaller than some of the others in London but with a great atmosphere. Nice mix of tables and machines. Food was amazing, Garlic Prawns and Chicken Satay followed by Rib-eye Steak and Teriyaki Salmon. If you've never been to a casino and have always wanted too this is the place to go. Can't wait to return.
