You may not have ever noticed but there are no land-based casinos located directly in Middlesbrough. Next time you walk around the centre of town, take a look and you won’t find any fully equipped casinos with live tables and games available.

So, what can you do if you live in Middlesbrough and have an urge for some gambling fun? Luckily, we’ve found three easy ways for those in the Boro to play their favourite slots and games.

Go Online

The first and most obvious thing you can do to play casino in Middlesbrough is to go online. All modern online casinos can be accessed through a computer or mobile device, and they have loads of different games available – often much more than a land-based establishment!

Since there are plenty of casinos where you can play online, as well as comparison sites that rate them, we’re not going to delve too deep into this topic. Instead, you can find the best online casinos for you specifically by visiting Casino Professor. Not only are all the options there safe and licenced but you can also filter them based on your own preferences.

Visit Nearby Teesside Casinos

If you’re wanting to soak up the brick-and-mortar experience then you’ll need to leave Middlesbrough itself. Luckily, there’s a healthy number of casinos located in Teesside so you don’t need to start booking trains weeks in advance.

For example, you can get to the Grosvenor Casino in Stockton in around 15 minutes by driving. It’s located right by Thornaby train station and has a mix of live tables, slots, and entertainment.

You could also combine a trip to the casino with a weekend away, as gambling often tops the pile of things to do between a few friends. If you’re all going from Middlesbrough then a good choice would be the Genting Casino in Newcastle which also just happens to be next to the train station. The Genting has all the games you need, and along with this has a bar and restaurant – serving food daily. If you’re into your poker, there are regular tournaments you can enter too.

Hire Your Very Own Middlesbrough Casino!

If you’re not interested in either going online or leaving your hometown, there’s always the option of sorting out a casino in Middlesbrough just for you. We’re not talking about building your own brick and mortar here – we can’t begin to image the cost and stress of doing such a thing! Instead, the Fun Casino hiring company allows you to actually turn your favourite Middlesbrough venue into a full-on gambling experience.

All you need is a venue and a vision: do you want it to be classic Vegas-style? How about something more Monte Carlo? Maybe you want to go full James Bond – with tuxes being obligatory.

Whatever theme you choose, they will be able to sort it out. The only problem? You won’t be able to play for real money here (gambling licences are hard to come by!). So, these are more for things like birthdays, weddings, or fundraisers.
