These days our cousins across the pond seem to have a more enlightened attitude toward poker than we in the U.S.A. And if you're planning a trip to the United Kingdom anytime soon, it might help to know what gaming options you have once you get there. UK Casinos is a online directory that gives you info on a wide variety of topics.
You get listings for casinos throughout the UK, as well as phone numbers and addresses. Which is important—in Britain you can’t just walk through the front door with a purse filled with pounds and start gambling. You either have to be a member of the casino or be a guest of a member. And once you apply, you MUST wait 24 hours after you submit your application before you can gain admittance. Getting turned away and being told to return on the morrow is likely to ruin your evening. I remember reading about this rule in Anthony Holden’s classic Big Deal, and it’s still in effect today. Plan accordingly.
UK Casinos provides info on other subjects as well (like bookmakers, online forums, even careers in gaming). If you plan on crossing the Atlantic and want to have a flutter while you’re there, this guide can give you some useful information.
