As well as gaming, guests can savour the food and drink options with a range of dishes available to cater to every taste.

For sports fanatics, live sporting events will be available to watch when they visit the casino - just in time for the Euros.
Next Monday will also be a special occasion for the group’s team members who will reunite with their colleagues.
Tony Reilly, general manager at Grosvenor Casino Edinburgh, said: “We’ve been counting down the days to reopening and every passing day has brought increased excitement. It has been a challenging time for all our team members, but we can finally look forward to reuniting again and getting back to doing what we love - creating a unique atmosphere for guests to have fun, play their favourite casino games and enjoy quality time together.
“We have been working hard to put in place robust health and safety measures, and when we reopen in line with government guidance, we will deliver a fun yet safe experience all of our guests and team members to enjoy.”
All customers will be registered at reception before using hand sanitiser, whilst regular cleaning will take place each day, including tables, chips and machines.
The casino will make screens available for customers to use on gaming tables and electronic machines.
There will also be restrictions on the number of people who can play games at any one time to ensure social distancing.
Grosvenor Casino Edinburgh will continue to accept cash and will encourage customers to use contactless payment, where possible.
Guests will be able to enjoy food and drink with pre-orders made at customers’ table or from their machine, either using the online app, or by placing an order with the valet service.
