London may not be one of the most important casino cities in the world and it does not as yet have any super-casinos or huge casino hotels, such as those found in Las Vegas, but it still does manage to attract some very high stake players who tend to play in the more up-market casinos based in Mayfair.
Some of the of high stake Mayfair casinos include Aspinalls, the Colony Club, the Clermont Club, Crockfords Casino, Fifty London, Les Ambassadeurs, Palm Beach Casino, and the Ritz Club. To play at most of these you need to be seriously rich, and some have membership fees of £1,000 or more just to walk in the door.

The casino offers experience packages which are a great way to learn how to get around a casino and how to play casino games.
There are four Gala casinos in London; in Russell Square, Tottenham Court Road, Baker Street and Queensway. These are all low to middle stake casinos, and typically the minimum stake is £1.00 on games such as roulette, the maximum stake is £5,000 on Punto Banko, and drinks are reasonably priced for London – for instance a Margarita costs just £6.25 and you can get a bottle of basic red wine for around £18. 00, so you can have a great night out without spending a fortune.
