Cardiff’s Rainbow Casino Set to Double in Size

  • New look Rainbow Casino Cardiff set for a star-studded re-launch in October following a £3m redevelopment.

The Rainbow Casino in the city centre of Cardiff, Wales, is set to re-launch in October 2016, revealing the results of its £3 million redevelopment project.

Located opposite the Motorpoint Arena in Mary Ann Street, the Rainbow Casino is set to double in size, creating up to 30 new jobs as a result. In addition to the new gaming floor space, the casino will unveil a new entrance, a second entrance on Tredegar Street, and much more.

The casino operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing customers with a state-of-the-art gaming venue offering jackpot slot machines that pay-out up to £20,000, a new outdoor smoking terrace featuring new electronic gaming machines, a new restaurant, and a revamped interior and late licensed bar.

“Our new-look casino will have something for everyone looking for a night to remember,” said Richard Phillips, General Manager at Rainbow Casino Cardiff. “A bigger, improved casino means we have created 30 new roles for which we are currently taking applications. These roles span front of house and customer service roles, to catering and managerial posts.”

The casino has remained open while the redevelopment work has been carried out, but the new-look venue is set to re-launch in October with the help of some yet-to-be named local stars.

It remains to be seen if the poker room will expand into some of the new floor space because currently the casino only offers cash game poker from 8:00 p.m. each night, a £0.50/£1 game with a £20 minimum buy-in and a £250 maximum buy-in.

Rainbow Casino Cardiff’s sister casino, in Bristol, also offers tournament poker in addition to cash games, and has hosted a UKIPT festival, and is currently being utilised for some live Day 1s for the $250,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Poker Tour Cardiff Main Event.
