We had a great time at The Sporting - friendly staff (although the guy downstairs could benefit attending a smiling course), good atmosphere and good game. We managed to get one first place, 1 ITM bubble, 2 final tables and net positive cashout from cash games - so from result perspective no complaines :-) We got somewhat surpised that the... More

Had a fantastic night at this place with some friends. Didn't have any problem paying the €25 euro registration charge as drinks kept on flowing while we were there. Staff are very friendly and professional and demonstrated a great deal of patience to a group of amateur (!) betters like us. Certainly not an intimidating atmosphere as I've experienced in... More

We had to pay €25 te get in, that should have been a warning sign. In return you get chips but there's some restrictions on how to bet with these. I visited quite a lot of casinos around the globe but this one is in my bottom top 10. Not much choice of table games were offered and the dealers... More

Arrived to be advised you had to pay 25euro to join/register. Asked was there a reason for it - couldn't even come up with an excuse, "house policy" was what I was advised. At least have the brains to say application processing fee etc. However, once signed up they advised you get 25e worth of chips you can use. Went... More

I found the door staff to be very rude. They seemed to have some notion that it's an exclusive place but anyone can join... Nice place otherwise

Working in the gaming business for an online operator we took to the casino to show what the appeal and buzz is all about. The first impression is that it's a very clean and organised establishment and the croupiers are absolutely amazing. As some of our group were unaccustomed to the games the croupiers went above and beyond teaching the... More
