Hammerson has announced that Victoria Gate Casino is now open to the public, becoming the third largest casino in the UK. The launch of Victoria Gate Casino enhances Victoria Leeds’ dining and entertainment offer, bringing a new leisure concept to the city. Aside from gaming, the new opening also boasts a live sports bar, a champagne and cocktail bar and a V Restaurant.
Operated by Global Gaming Ventures, the 50,000 sq ft casino sits above Victoria Gate’s modern retail arcades, boasting a capacity of 1,400 which makes it the largest casino in the North of England and Scotland.
Robin Dobson, director of retail development at Hammerson, commented: “The launch of Victoria Gate Casino marks another exciting part of Victoria Gate’s debut. At its opening in October 2016, the scheme transformed Leeds’ retail offer and the casino’s arrival provides the city with a unique and vibrant entertainment experience.”
Andrew Herd, chief executive of Global Gaming Ventures, said: “The vision for Victoria Gate Casino has been years in the making but it has been worth the wait. It’s a pivotal moment for Leeds to have an entertainment venue on such a grand scale and we’re thrilled to be contributing to the city’s already thriving leisure offering and joining the line-up at Victoria Gate.”
