GROSVENOR CASINO – READING CENTRAL MEMBERSHIP INFO

ACCOMMODATION & TRANSPORTATION

This Grosvenor casino is located in the centre of town by the Duke Street Bridge over the River Kennet. It’s the first building on your left as you cross the bridge from the northern side of the river, or the last one on your right if you’re travelling from the south. There is parking available behind the casino and in adjacent streets. If these are full you can always travel slightly further down the road to Oracle Centre Parking which is available 24/7.

The Great Expectations hotel is the closest accommodation to the casino, located just across Queen’s Road. It is a moderately priced accommodation with rooms available from £50 a night. There are quite a few hotels less than 5-minutes drive from the casino, still in the centre of Reading.

  • Hotel Ibis Styles Reading Centre – 3-star Hotel
  • Mercure George Hotel Reading – 3-star Hotel
  • House of Fisher Hotel – 4-star
  • Reading Services Apartments – 4-star Hotel

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

Reading has grown a lot over the years from a small market town into the bustling shopping destination it is today. The Oracle is one of the main reasons for this boom and a must-see when visiting the city. It’s a spectacular complex that goes from one side of the River Kennet to the other. There are plenty of shops but the complex also goes a long way in preserving the original essence of the town, especially the areas surrounding the Gothic Town Hall and St Lawrence’s Church.

Forbury Square is another popular attraction that has grown a lot over the years. It is now a great play to enjoy al fresco dining overlooking the Forbury Gardens. You could also visit the location of the old market or the recently refurbished Butter Market.

NEARBY CASINOS

Reading is home to 5 casinos. The closest option is Admiral Casino Reading, but they are only an electronic gaming parlor with slot machines. The only casinos with table games are both equally far away, approximately 10-minutes drive from the casino. One of the casinos is also part of the Grosvenor casino chain. Grosvenor Casino Reading South is located along the A33 leaving Reading and offers a very similar gaming experience to the one in the centre of town.

Another nearby casino that also offers similar facilities is Genting Casino Reading. Located in Richfield Avenue close to the River Thames, they have a wide selection of table and electronic games as well as a bingo hall and on-site bar. Genting casinos own many branches throughout the UK and also offers a membership.

Fantasy Fun Casino is the furthest away on the eastern side of reading. They offer a well equipped, albeit small, casino with table games and slot machines. They are open from 12 pm until 2 am every day.

GROSVENOR ONLINE CASINO GAMES

Grosvenor Casino Reading offers its guests an exclusive online gaming experience. The Grosvenor online casino is filled with table games, slot machines, progressive jackpots, and even live casino and sportsbook. There is something for everyone and their £30 registration bonus is a great way of saying ‘welcome’. There are plenty of online bonuses viewable from their ‘promotions’ tab. Currently, they have the ‘Game of the Week’ promotion which gives you bonuses if you play the specific game – which is currently Bar X Safe Cracker Megaways.
