Hippodrome Casino launches online ahead of London opening
Hippodrome Casino Online (www.hippodromecasino.com) has launched, ahead of the opening in London later this year of the new Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square.
George Constantinou, Head of Online Gaming at The Hippodrome Casino said the new site, hosted on the Boss network, will add an exciting new dimension to online gaming with the finals of some online tournaments climaxing in live events hosted at the unique, central London venue.
The site comprises a broad range of online gaming including poker tournaments, poker cash games and casino games including blackjack, roulette and slots. Casino games are browser based and all Poker games are downloadable.
Said George Constantinou: “We offer a real difference as we are truly an online casino with – in the near future – a magnificent London club house to serve as a magnificent location for the finals of some high-prize online tournaments.”
And once it opens, online players should also be able to cash their online winnings at the Casino itself.
There will be up to six online tournaments a week, with the larger games offering prizes of up to £200K.
Also in the pipeline are partnerships with some of the UK’s largest media houses to host affiliate gaming tournaments with the finals broadcast live from Leicester Square.
When it launches, the Hippodrome Casino will be the UK’s only truly, international-style Casino, and will combine traditional and state of the art electronic gaming with a top class restaurant, cocktail bar and world-beating entertainment.
It will comprise:
Four floors of traditional and electronic gaming, with private rooms and a smoking deck
A 200-capactity cabaret space built on the former Hippodrome Theatre stage, which can also open up to the entire building. Performances will range from residencies by world-class pop and stage divas to jazz legends and the latest bands
A superb restaurant together with lounge and cocktail bars
Hippodrome Casino owner Simon Thomas, who has invested more than £35 million in the project, said: “We will challenge the long-held conceptions of casinos in the UK. In fact we’re determined to not only challenge them, but redefine the way in which London, and its visitors, celebrate an evening out.”
It is estimated the Casino will create more than 400 new jobs and attract tens of thousands of new visitors to the Leicester Square area.
