While not on the scale of a normal casino this club has a very intimate feel and the staff are very friendly. We received a hand stamp from someone promoting the club as we were walking to it so we didn't have to pay the €25 registration fee and actually received €10 that could be used on any table except...

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
