Casinos in Manchester

Casinos in Manchester offer several choices for those looking to enjoy a bit of casino gambling in the United Kingdom.

There are a total of 6 casinos in Manchester, which along with Liverpool is one of the hubs of northwestern England in the UK. The city’s history is founded in its position as England’s major northern port and the gateway between the UK and Ireland.

The 6 casinos in Manchester place it third out of the 49 English cities that have casinos within their city limits. The 6 casinos house 48 electronic slot and gaming machines and 89 game tables altogether, meaning that there are various choices available to discerning gamers.

While there were plans to build a Las Vegas-style all-inclusive hotel and casino resort in Manchester, the proposal met with a great deal of opposition from both government and the community.

After lengthy deliberations, the plans for this hotel and casino resort were finally scrapped early this year following Gordon Brown’s appointment as Prime Minister. Instead, 16 smaller casinos will be built in various cities and towns across the UK, including Milton Keynes, Leeds and the Welsh city of Swansea.
