How Many Casinos are there in the UK and Who Owns Them?

Posted on February 11th, 2014

uk casinoHere´s an interesting query that was posed from one of our readers the other day, and one we felt obliged to research. Just out of curiosity of course.

There was lots of talk of super casinos launching in the UK a few years back, and then Gordo took over from the Blair and put an end to it. But there are plenty of land based casinos in the UK (we all know the famous ones like Aspers). But just how many bricks and mortar casinos are there in the UK and who runs them? (ie exclusing all of the online casinos).

Well, by our calculations, there are around 140 casinos across the UK- most of them in England, and a big chunk (around 25) of them are in London, as you might expect. We have the full list below.
