Casino 36 – Wolverhampton Review
Previously the Rubicon Casino, Casino 36 is the result of a change of ownership and a massive £7.6 million refurbishment. One of just a few ‘super’ casinos in the UK, Casino 36 is open 24/7 and can be found on Temple Street in Wolverhampton.
There is not much to say about this casino except that it is huge, modern, full of friendly staff and always has a fun and lively atmosphere. You will also be able to enjoy numerous gaming options such as Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker, Punto Banco table games and a plethora of slot machines and electronic roulette machines.
A Sports Bar and Grill is also on hand to keep you full of food and drink while it will also be a great place to relax, socialise and enjoy a wide range of live sporting events that are shown on massive high definition television screens.
CASINO 36 – WOLVERHAMPTON GAMES
As a guest, you will be awe of the size of the gaming floor at Casino 36. It is gigantic, very spacious and is able to provide you with a staggering 24 classic gaming tables which include American Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Punto Banco. Additionally, there are 80 gaming machines found on the floor with those being a combination of slot machines and electronic gaming terminals.
If you are new to casinos are struggling to understand the rules of any of the games, the helpful Casino 36 staff are always on hand to assist you. Slots might even be your best option as they require no skill to play and whether you win or not will come down to luck. Also, with local machine jackpots of £10,000 and progressive jackpots of £20,000 on offer, these are well worth playing anyway.
Casino 36 even has its own in-house bookmakers which means that you can place bets on the outcome of a variety of different sporting events.
CASINO GAMING OPTIONS:
The only downside to Casino 36 in Wolverhampton is the lack of poker. Surprisingly, despite the size of the casino, they have decided against incorporating a dedicated card room, so if you love nothing more than a poker tournament or playing for cash at the tables, you will not be able to do so here.
That said, you will find plenty of other casinos not too far off in Birmingham that will be able to quench your cravings for poker.
CASINO 36 DRESS CODE
Smart and casual is the official dress code for Casino 36 and they are pretty strict about it. If you do not make any kind of effort, you will not be allowed in. Vests, dirty work clothes, caps and hats, in particular, are articles of clothing that could see you refused entry. Dress up smartly, you are going to a casino, not a pub.
FOOD & BEVERAGES
We all need to eat, even when we’re winning and when that time comes, you will want to have a bite to eat in the Sports Bar & Grill at Casino 36. Open 24/7 just like the casino, you can enjoy a wide range of delicious meals, snacks and a fully-stocked bar that will help you to wash them down.
Steak and Curry nights are regular occurrences in the bar while you should always keep your eye out for special deals and promotions too. In fact, they have a different special each and every day.
Want to catch the latest Premier League match live and on a big screen? How about the latest boxing bout, Formula 1 race or cricket match? This can also be done in the Sports Bar & Grill as there are numerous screens scattered around that you can take in while knocking back your favourite drink.
Casino 36 is never slow when it comes to dishing out promotions and bonuses to its guests. They regularly offer two for one deals on drinks and dishes in the restaurant and are always running some kind of prize draw, slot tournament or some other kind of event. All visitors even get unlimited free tea and coffee upon request at the casino.
As for entertainment, you can expect regular comedy nights and live bands while they always organise special parties at Christmas and New Year.
