We went as a work social club event and we had a great night. The staff were very friendly from the time we entered the casino especially Maureen who helped us organise the event and Alex, our dealer, who was very patient in showing us how texas holdem works (because we were amateurs or in other words, didn't have a clue how to play) and friendly and we had great crack with him. Half way through our game we were brought into a another room to have some finger food which was really nice and set us up nicely for the second half of the poker. When I got knocked out of poker game, I went and played Roulette and yet again the staff member was very friendly and showed me how to play.

I would recommend this night to anyone, we will definitely be going back another night as every one in our company who went is raving about what a good night they had.

Booked into the Sporting Emporium for 1st of Feb, through Maureen who couldnt have been more helpful, helped with every little detail especially since we left it so late to book. On arrival service was amazing. We then went upstair where we were helped by the floor manager Phil, who was so helpful and very friendly. I would recommend this to anyone even for a fun night out. The tables were great fun and all the staff there up for a laugh(even when your winning) Very attentive and always willing to look after you, i would give this more than 5 stars if i coould. I will be going back soon.

After winning a VIP night last year for myself and 3 friends which included a free dinner, drinks and a 100 chips each I had such a good time I had to return, So last Saturday night was about the fourth time I've attended the casino with friends and each time I have to say is a real fun night. Although I felt really anxious and I had no idea how to play roulette or Black Jack the first time, the staff were so helpful and patient and professional at all times as they will take time to assist if you have a query on a move etc.
Although you have to pay an entrance fee of 25 euros to become a member you get that back in chips on the night but please remember to bring some picture id with you!!
I brought two new friends with me this last time and they had such a good time they said they will definitely go back soon.
So if you are after something different for a night out rather than a club night, this will be a recommended place for you to visit.
