Grosvenor Victoria Casino
Affectionately known as “The Vic”, the Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London has been regarded by many as the “spiritual home of London’s poker scene”. The Vic is home to the iconic Poker Room, which has become one of the most renowned poker rooms in all of the UK. However, a host of other games are also available in The Vic, from Blackjack to American Roulette, and even Electronic Roulette.
In April of 2014, The Vic was put up for sale, drawing interest not just from European casino moguls, but also Asian operators. The results of the bidding have not yet been published, but The Vic’s lucrative poker scene and heavy-hitting reputation are predicted to bring in more than a pretty penny.
Although only opened in November of 2013, poker players from around the world visit the Poker Room. Expertly trained dealers and service staff attend to members of The Vic. Playing to the already-established poker scene in the casino, the operators have installed 35 poker tables and 20 slot machines in the Poker Room. More than just being a part of The Vic, the Poker Room is seen as a venue all in itself.

|Three Card Poker||2|
The Vic and the Poker Room are at the heart of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour, which brings in poker enthusiasts, card sharks, and fishes from all over the country to compete in cash games. Regular tournaments are also held in the Poker Room daily.
The Vic isn’t particularly renowned for its food, but the addition of the Poker Room has also made way for the introduction of a new restaurant and a late-night bar, all situated in sophisticated, ambient surroundings. Great food is served, as well as an extensive bar list that includes custom cocktails and chilled beers, as well as some vintage wines and liquor.
The casino is open for booking for any activities, and the staff will aid in offering an excellent experience to any member who wishes to celebrate a special occasion with The Vic. They are open to hosting poker parties and private events.
The dress code for The Vic is smart casual, as is expected of other Grosvenor Casinos. Guests in sportswear and caps will not be admitted into the casino.
Membership with The Vic automatically registers you with the Grosvenor Rewards program as well, which lets you earn points as you continue to play in any of the Grosvenor casinos. These points can then be traded for other services such as free meals at their restaurants or free drinks at the bar.
