A spokesperson for Casino.co.uk says: “Our research suggests five UK towns and cities are the most likely candidates to emerge as the UK’s answer to Las Vegas These are Blackpool, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool and London.

“We’ve given each of these locations a touch of the Vegas treatment to give us a glimpse of how each may look in the future.

“Of course another town could yet emerge from the shadows and surprise us by taking on the challenge of becoming Britain’s gambling capital. But right now we think these five locations are the most likely."
