The Best Christmas and New Year Casino Parties
December is always a busy time of the year for all kinds of entertainment venues, bars and restaurants and this year casinos are no different.
UK land based casinos are becoming increasingly popular with people looking for a night out – it doesn't even have to include gambling. Last week the Evening Standard reported on the rush that was taking place in London and quoted The Hippodrome Casino's chairman Simon Thomas as saying that business had been building for the past few weeks.
But The Hippodrome isn't the only UK casino gearing up for a big festive period. Below are just some of the biggest and best events on at land-based casinos across the country this Christmas.
London's newest luxury casino is going back to its roots this Christmas with a Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin Christmas show. Both of these crooners played at the place many moons ago and are now paid tribute to up until December 22.
Also at The Hippodrome is the Boom & Bang Circus which is described as a selection of 'exotic circus acts' along with The Jive Aces Swingin' Christmas Party.
Finally, for New Year's Eve The Hippodrome is continuing with its Jazzy theme as singer Natalie Williams will be singing Soul and Motown covers throughout the night. Oh, and there's plenty of casino gaming to be done as well!
The Casino at the Empire

The circus theme will be on show here as well as plus there's the major bonus of free entry – a rarity in London, especially on New Year's Eve.
There will be fortune tellers, contortionists, magicians and a hypnotist to create the circus feel. Special treats such as popcorn, candy floss and champagne will also be on offer and for those who do manage to party the night away there's a survivors breakfast to help you recover.

Any casino with a 'Vegas Show Bar' is always going to be able to throw a good party and Genting Star City is doing just that this Christmas.
Tribute acts are very much the order of the day with the Rat Pack and a 70/80's night being the main nights this month. Of course there's then the considerable matter of New Year's Eve where there will be champagne, a four course meal and live entertainment.
Most impressive of all is that tickets to all of these events come with a free £5 table bet which could put you on your way to great riches – or just a good night!
As a favourite haunt of Manchester's finest the Christmas events at Manchester235 Casino are bound to be popular. This certainly seems to be the case on New Year's Eve as their Casino Royale event is already sold out.
But there's more as the Winter Wonderland is set up to be enjoyed every weekend around the festive season and a slightly less exclusive buffet event on New Year’s Eve in the Fusion Bar.
Grosvenor G Casino Coventry
The recently opened Genting Casino Coventry has got everyone talking about it and that looks set to continue.
From the Amy Winehouse tribute to the Rats in the Kitchen and the New Year's Eve 80s night there seems to be plenty going on at this Coventry casino. With tickets priced at just £10 this certainly seems to be one of the more affordable New Year's Eve casino events as well.
