Empire

Empire Owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, the Empire Casino is a Las Vegas-style casino built on the site of the former Empire Ballroom in Leicester Square in the West End of London. Occupying a total of 55,000 square feet, spread over two floors, the Empire Casino opened, at a cost of £16 million, in 2007; it was, and still is, the largest casino in the British capital city.

The main body of the casino, which shares the ground floor with a separate, dedicated poker room, features 30 or so gaming tables offering classic games, such as blackjack, punto banco and roulette. The main casino floor also includes the majority of the state-of-the-art slot machines and electronic roulette machines, although a smaller number of electronic gaming machines is also available on the second floor and in the poker room.

Unsurprisingly, granted that the Empire Casino hosts the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) and offers customers opportunities to qualify for the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event in Las Vegas, the Empire Poker Room has a WSOP theme. Nevertheless, players of all abilities can enjoy playing cash games or tournaments, for small or medium stakes, twenty-four hours a day, in a modern, vibrant, but nonetheless professional, setting. Capable of accommodating up to 80 players at any one time and with its own, dedicated bar, the Empire Poker Room is widely regarded as one of the best in London.
