Bristol Casino Guide: From Rainbow To Genting - The Best Casinos In Bristol

Casinos in Bristol

As you’d expect, we’re huge fans of gambling online – as you can see from the range of great sites covered in our reviews of our favourite online casinos. But there’s something special and unique about placing a bet in a live casino, the sights, the smells, the streaks to your betting.

Bristol is one of the UK’s finest cities and it has some of the best casinos around. From Rainbow to Genting, we’ve covered the casinos you need to pay a visit to when you’re next in Bristol.  


Previously known as Gala, Rainbow is our favourite casino in Bristol. It’s centrally located, near the city’s historic harbourside, and its card and slot games cater to a huge range of gamblers. At Gala, you will find:

  • Roulette

  • Blackjack

  • Three card poker

  • Poker

  • Punto Banco

  • Electronic roulette

  • Slots

  • Tombola roulette

  • Mahjong

It’s a fairly large casino (the biggest in Bristol) and has screens dotted around showing sports games to keep you entertained between rounds of betting. There’s a separate bar and you can get reasonably priced food delivered to your table as you gamble.

While there’s plenty for the casual, drop-in and ad-hoc gambler to enjoy (due to the sheer number of different games), where it really excels is in the number of poker tournaments it offers. There’s a weekly freeroll every Monday and Thursday, along with plenty of other great poker events at Rainbow casino in Bristol.

Admiral Casino

Fans of slots and fruit machines will adore Admiral Casino. Based in Bristol’s Broadwalk shopping centre, it’s open Monday through to Sunday and comes with a welcome offer of 50 free spins. What more could you want from a slot based casino?

Admiral Casino has ten different games available for gamblers:

  • Book of Ra – £500 Jackpot

  • High 5 Roulette – £72 Jackpot

  • Sizzling Hot Deluxe – 500 Jackpot

  • Pole Star – £500 Jackpot

  • Roulette with Golden Odds – £500 Jackpot

  • Gold Cash – £500 Jackpot

  • 20p Roulette – £500 Jackpot

  • Snake Rattle and Roll – £500 Jackpot

  • Multi Bingo – £500 Jackpot

  • Spin Doctor – £500 Jackpot

With it being based in a shopping centre and catering only to gamblers who prefer slot and fruit machines, Admiral Casino doesn’t have the same feel as you’d get from a classic casino – less James Bond and more seaside attraction. But that doesn’t stop it from being a well-run casino that’s a lot of fun.

Situated a dice throw away from Rainbow, Grosvenor is one of the highlights of gambling in Bristol. It has comfortable facilities, a welcoming atmosphere and a brilliant selection of games that are perfect for any level of gambler.

Grosvenor is a chain of casinos that has 55 different venues across the UK. The casinos follow a similar layout, with live tables placed at the centre of the action and slot games around the edges. Bristol follows the same layout and has plenty of games for you to choose from:

  • American roulette

  • Blackjack

  • Three card poker

  • Slots

One of the big plus points of Grosvenor is that it has the highest maximum bets of any casino in Bristol, with £400 for American roulette and £2,000 for blackjack. However, while you can play cash poker games at Grosvenor, one of the downsides to this casino is that it doesn’t offer tournaments.

Casino Slots

Kingswood is one of Bristol’s many neighbourhoods. It’s an area that was a royal hunting estate during the Saxon and Norman periods but today it has the perfect venue for people hunting down slots while they’re in Bristol – Casino Slots.

Casino Slots has over 100 different games for gamblers to try their hand at, with jackpots ranging from £5 for a £0.10 spin up to £500 for people willing to wager £1 per spin.

Like Admiral Casino, Casino Slots doesn’t have the range of games to satisfy gamblers who want to bet at a table. However, if you want a friendly place where you can play the fruit machines, Casino Slots is a great option.

Completing our list of the best casinos in Bristol is another chain. Genting began in Malaysia back in 1965 and has venues dotted across the globe, but it’s Bristol casino is surely one of the finest to its name. With promotions, snacks and games, spending an evening at Genting offers plenty for gamblers to enjoy.

It’s located opposite the historic St. Mary Redcliffe Church (one of Bristol’s architectural jewels) but what’s most interesting about Genting are the games:

  • There are four tables of American Roulette, with a min stake of £1 and max of £2

  • There are three Blackjack tables, with min stake £3 and max stake £1,000

  • There’s one 3-5 Card Poker table, which has a £2 min and£200 max stake

  • You can choose from twelve Electronic Roulette tables and stake a min of£0.10 and max of £125

Of course, it’s not just the games that you demand when you head to a casino. You also expect the overall experience to be great and the staff are a huge part of that. Luckily, Genting is full of friendly bar staff and dealers, with the management working hard to make this a casino that you enjoy being in.

Few things are more fun for gamblers than trying out a new casino. Non-gamblers might question the difference between casinos, reasoning that they’re just a place to sit down and place a bet. However, each casino has its own range of games and unique vibe. Rainbow, Admiral, Grosvenor, Casino Slots, and Genting all have something special about them. Next time you’re in Bristol, head over to one and place a bet!
