Genting Casino has over 50 years’ experience in the casino industry so you could say that casinos are woven deeply into their DNA. We heard great things about their casinos up in Scotland so we donned the best kilt we could find and paid Genting Casino Edinburgh a visit.

In the Athens of the North


The first thing that took us by surprise was there are in fact two Genting Casinos in Edinburgh! One in York place and one in Fountain Park. We flipped a coin and settled on visiting the Genting Casino in Fountain Park. A handy tip about this casino is to register online before you visit as it will allow for quicker entry on your first visit. Although membership is not required to gain entry to the casino.


When you enter this casino, you will be greeted by some very friendly staff who are more than willing to show you around if it is your first time there. The inside of the casino is wonderfully designed with plenty of plush gaming tables and stylish lights. Players will be delighted to know that they can choose from a whole host of traditional casino games such as roulette, blackjack, baccarat, slots, and poker in this casino. If you are a bit of a newbie when it comes to gambling then don’t fret as you can start playing some slot machines for as little as one penny. And if your luck is in then you could win up to £10,000 in some of the jackpot slots! Genting Casino Edinburgh also caters for the high-rollers out there as it is possible to place bets up to £2,000 on some of the Baccarat tables.

Casino Etiquette


It goes without saying that you need to be over 18 in order to gain entry to this casino but in Scotland if you are fortunate to appear young looking then you will need to bring ID if you appear to look under the age of 25.


When you think of casinos, you instantly think of James Bond and a tuxedo. Thankfully you do not need to dress like him to enter this casino. Smart Casual is the order of the day here. So remember to leave your football shirts, vests, hats and shorts at home!

A nice way of getting to know how to play the various games in this casino is to watch other players playing, however, please bear in mind that seats and positions that are in front of a gaming table are reserved for players only so make sure to spectate from at least few feet away. It is possible to use your mobile phone in designated non-gaming areas but it is a big no-no for taking pictures within the casino as photography is strictly prohibited in the gaming areas of the casino.

Other Facilities


A casino is not all that Genting Casino Edinburgh has to offer as it also features the award winning 5 star Fahrenheit restaurant. It is open 7 days a week and it is possible to get a delicious three-course meal for just £22.95! That is not all as the casino also boasts a late bar which offers live sports and a whole host of beers and spirits from some of the finest brewers in Europe.


The atmosphere is electric at Genting Casino Edinburgh, the staff are super helpful, and the games are great fun to play especially when you are in profit! If your night is not yet finished then this casino is a great place to unwind and finish the night off in style.
