If you love a flutter and happen to be in the vicinity of London’s West End, then you are in the right place to get in some live casino practise without a membership.

The Hippodrome Casino is located in London’s bustling West End’s Leicester Square area literally right opposite the underground station in a pedestrian area overflowing with high to mid-range bars and restaurants as well as cinemas and fast food restaurants. The West End is a tourist playground for the world come to visit one of London’s most upbeat areas with an indescribable vibe that cancels out the bad weather and busy surrounding roads.

Just around the corner from Leicester Square there are a host of theatres, the landmark Trafalgar Square, and the famous upmarket shopping districts of Oxford Street and Bond Street. Just around the corner is the designer label central of Carnaby Street where you can take a wander and then mosey on up through to China town for some of the best Thai and Chinese food Bangkok, Pee King or Hong Kong style. A bit further on and you’re in the red light district of  So-Hoe, a place also known for its underground night spots as well as its fun market where it seems anything goes from knocked off gear to fake watches and phones made in China.

By day the West End is a place for families and come sun set the night owls come out to play and the Hippodrome Casino stands tall in the middle of all this action where the casino stands as an integral part of the area’s history,_London.

The casino’s dress code is relaxed, and if you are not too drunk they’ll let you in without a membership as long you look as if you’re not likely to cause any trouble. It is truly a perfect gambling zone for holiday makers. Plus if you like poker, you’ll find the famous PokerStars Live tables on the 4th floor.

What makes the Hippodrome special is it is up class, full of friendly staff, and has a great reputation for having a wide selection of virtual slots you would usually find online as well as a main floor surrounded by virtual roulette machines. Being an online player it is always great to have the comfort of knowing you can still get some virtual reality action in between some live table action.

On the live scene there are plenty of Blackjack tables ranging from high to low stakes as well as Roulette and Baccarat hanging around the centre floor, while at the back of all the action is a lively bar where some people go just for the buzz of it. And of course you are sure to bump into your usual railbirds and punter discussing tactic and strategies where hopefully a few tips and tricks of the trade can be picked up to take back to the floor and back to the virtual casino floors after you return home. Check out for some top virtual casinos you can play out right now.

As with any land based casino, this place may not have the variety found online, but it does have a location to kill for and rules that make the punters feel comfortable with their surroundings. As an added bonus, getting there on the right day could mean picking up a special casino bonus where there are on occasion free meals and VIP treatment up for grabs.
