Advantages Out of Town, nice surroundings
Disadvantages Useless bar staff, expensive drinks.
I HAVE ASKED CIAO TO MOVE THIS TO THE CORRECT LOCATION, BUT NO ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN.The Star City Casino or, the Vegas Experience as it is billed, is in a suburb of Birmingham so nice and easy to get too without battling through the city centre. It within a leisure complex, which also has host of other bars and restaurants. Parking is plentiful and there is even a courtesy parking service, at a charge and a place where you can order a taxi.
The casino it’s self is set over several floors. The first floor being slots and is open 24 hours a day. There is a sort of mezzanine floor, which is almost totally electronic roulette. The gaming floor is next with a wide range of games, blackjack, roulette, casino poker, punto banco and several other less known games and quite a few slots, and other electronic roulette machines. There is a restaurant overlooking the gaming area. There is also a show bar which has nightly shows, but there is a cost to get in here from £25-£50, depending what is on and includes a three course mealThe stakes for the slots vary, but most are around 30p with a maximum £25 jackpot. There are a few maximum £500 jackpot machines and stakes vary again to how many lines you play. Table stakes are as low as 50p for a single number on the roulette and up to really as much as you can afford on the blackjack, but on average stakes are in the £2-£10 range and there are separate tables for the minimum stake bets. So there is say, a table at blackjack where the minimum bet is £2.00 per hand and next door maybe a table with £10 minimum bet, similarly with other games. So I would say there is really something for every pocket, if you don’t get carried away and expect to win a fortune.
There are several bars with a small seating area off the gaming floor.
As in other casinos, if you are playing you can expect free soft drinks and sandwichs, but the drinks are very expensive. Casinos usually subsidise drinks or do two for ones, or pints for a £1. Here from a poor selection of draught beers (one lager and one bitter) a lager will cost £2.60 and a bottle of Smirnoff ice with cost £3.00. The bar staff are pretty useless and have no order of service just buzzing up and down and serving at random, so you can waste a lot of time here, best ask one of the many waitresses to bring a drink to you. The food is very good and the snacks are cheap.
