Interesting Place, Long History
Jul 2019
What is Helsinki Casino now, used to be ... many ventures - and names! - in the past.

Built in 1899, it was first called Hotel Fennia (from Latin: Finland), then in 1910 it became Grand Hotel Fennia, followed by Fennia Restaurant in the 1960s, then by Metropol Cafe ... Now it is The Casino Grand Helsinki. I went in (security on duty is at the entrance, inside), just to have a look at the interior - there are over 300 slot machines there, a separate poker room, function rooms for social events and shows. I didn't have much time to gamble.

Casino Helsinki is very particular - in a sense that it gives its profit to charities. For that only, it deserves respect and recognition.

What struck me especially was the exquisite, Viennese Baroque design of the Fennia part of the site by architects Grahn, Hedman and Wasastjerna. It is just such a gorgeous building, with a stunning, lavishly decorated facade that gives you a strong sense of history and architectural finesse. I took a number of photos - it all looks fantastic and very memorable.

Casino Helsinki is located in the very center of the city , next to Helsinki Train Station Square (Rautatientori). It's a very beautiful, popular, and very historic area of the city.

First time

I visited the Casino Helsinki for the first time due there was a "Tribute to Abba" show in there.
The "Tribute to Abba" show was excellent.
The casino was a busy place and there is lots of slot machines. I guess it's a fun place for someone who wants to gamble.

First time visitor
Feb 2019 • Friends
Plenty of digital slotmachines (300+), some a bit cramped together. The entrance and cloakroom is free. First time an id card is required and a picture is taken. Eventhough the staff knew we were in the casino for the first time, no info was provided or proposed. The staff at the exchange counter was friendly and answered some questions. The person also offered to call a staff person who can give some extra instructions on some games if requested. At the roulette tables the staff said no words and seemed rather bored.

Great place and good service
Dec 2018 • Friends
Awesome experience! From the cloak room to bar staff and security - everyone was very friendly and attending. However, there was lack of information about the games. First time visitors more information how to play the games and where to start etc. would be appreciated. Drinks were good quality too!

Unforgettable evening
Jun 2018 • Couples
There is a diverse selection of slot machines, some 300 of them. Spanning two floors, there are 20 table games and a poker room. We opted for the show and dinner package at Fennia Salon. Nice food, great show, a truly unforgettable evening.

I visited the casino for a special function dinner. The buffet was average at most, with many choices depleted. The bar was OK, thou.

Tribute to Bon Jovi - dinner & show
Nov 2017 • Couples
Friday evening dinner and show with Bon Jovi music. What else can you ask for. Show was great but music seriously too loud. Have done similar dinner & show events before and it shouldn’t be so loud that you almost want to use ear blugs. Not really fits with having a nice dinner. The dinner was really tasty. We had the Bad Medicine menu. Really enjoyed the first course!

No Las Vegas but fun

If you want to spend a few hours this is a great place to go. You have to show your passport the first time you go. They have about 300 slot machines and tables. It is run by the state and all the money they make goes to museums, things for children, and things to make life more interesting for residents. They do have a bar where you can buy a drink if you want one.

Unwelcoming service, waste of money.
Jul 2017 • Friends
Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Very rude and unwelcoming service.
There was two ladies at the entry counter. As I approached the counter, the other one asked me had I visited there before. Meanwhile the other lady whispered something to the other one and stared at me with disdain.
I looked back and thought "what's your problem?".
I may have not dressed so nicely, but still some respect for customers, a smile or anything! I felt really bad and unwelcome.
My friend told me to show them my ID, it was weird they didn't ask for it.
I wasn't even planning playing at all, because I don't gamble. Downstairs, there were many pale men who looked really addicted to gambling.

Really there was nothing else to do, than feel sorry for those poor people, and buy an overpriced drink.

Please, save your money and spend it somewhere nice.
There's plenty of quality restaurants and bars with great customer service in Helsinki. Surely this Casino ain't one...
