Playing Casino Games in Newcastle: A Guide

Playing Casino Games in Newcastle: A Guide

Newcastle has plenty to offer to both locals and visitors alike. From visiting the Discovery Museum to strolling around Quayside, it’s a city where there’s never any shortage of things to do. 

And the city provides more than just its most famous attractions and neighbourhoods, too. Visitors and residents looking for something alternative to do will find that Newcastle offers much by way of recreational fun, including being home to three professional casinos. Read on to learn everything you need to do before playing casino games in Newcastle. 

What Games Do You Want to Play? 

You can head straight to a casino and begin playing immediately if you wish, but it’s usually best to take a more considered approach. For one thing, not all casinos are the same. If you’re going to get the most from your visit, then it’s best to look up which games are commonly played at each of the city’s casinos. While they may all offer all the most famous casino games, they’ll also likely have a speciality — for example, Newcastle Genting Casino hosts poker tournaments, which may not be ideal if you’re looking for a more casual game. Once you’ve found a casino that offers your preferred game, spend some time reminding yourself of the rules if you haven’t played in a while.

Visiting Newcastle’s Casinos

Newcastle is home to three casinos. Happily, they’re all located within a short walking distance from one another. That means that if you don’t enjoy one of the casinos, then you won’t have to go too far to have a different experience! 

The most popular casino is Aspers Casino. Note, however, that this establishment is generally better suited for more serious players. You’ll be expected to know what you’re doing! If you’re just hoping to have some fun with friends on a visit to Newcastle, then it may be better to look at the other options in the city. However, if you’d like to simply enjoy the atmosphere of Aspers, then you can always head straight to Freya’s bar, which has an excellent food menu. 

Playing Online

Visitors and locals wishing to play casino games don’t necessarily have to visit one of the city’s real-world establishments. Online casinos are fully legal in Newcastle, meaning players can play from the comfort of their homes or hotel rooms. Travellers who don’t have their laptops with them should be mindful that not all online operations accept mobile payments, but the casinos that are listed on Oddschecker allow players to pay via their mobile phone bill. Playing online has a few advantages over playing in the real world, too — for instance, there’s usually a wider selection of games and players can take advantage of introductory offers, the likes of which are not available at brick-and-mortar Newcastle casinos. 

Casino Nights With Friends

As much as we love Newcastle, we all know that it receives more than its fair share of rainy nights. If you and your friends had grand plans to visit a casino interrupted by intense rainfall, then you may consider hosting your own casino night. This is especially recommended if you and your friends have rented a large apartment or hotel suite that allows you to enjoy a cosy afternoon indoors. You don’t need all that much to host a casino night — depending on what you’re trying to play, a deck of cards and some makeshift chips (matchsticks are a good option) will do the trick. It’ll be an enjoyable way to pass an afternoon until the rain has subsided and you’re able to head out into the Newcastle nightlife. 

Other Nightlife Activities In Newcastle

The night isn’t over once you’ve finished playing your casino games! Newcastle has a lot to offer at all times of the day, but especially once the sun sets. There’s a near-endless number of bars, restaurants, and music venues, ensuring that visitors and locals can have fun all night long.
