If you like a gambling casino, then this one is the place for you.

Choose from bingo, roulette, pachinko or keno. Choose a table with a table mate, or join one of the hands-on screens to learn the tricks of the trade.

Just make sure you’re not playing too many slots at once. A ‘loaded’ machine can cost up to £160, but it’s an easy way to lose money quickly.

Head to Head’s casino and bingo machines, located on the side of its sports bar, are located on the lower ground floor, in the ‘business centre’.
