Victoria Casino

This cardroom was previously known as The Vic, and is a poker landmark in the UK, and the spot for high stakes cash games in London. It’s now been rebranded as The Poker Room. It’s extremely well-run, and boasts the widest variety of games and stakes you will find in London. It’s not unusual to spot the odd poker pro playing at one of the tables.

This poker room has lots of ad-hoc events running so this tournament list can change – we definitely recommend calling them or checking their website first.

Great experience overall, 05/06/2016

Had a great time playing at the vic !!! I visited London for a few days and went to the vic as I had read it’s the best place to get some poker action. I had a great experience. The staff is very nice, the dealers are good, food is good, waitresses are very friendly but the best thing – the cash poker action is always on. They have NL, PLO games on all night. 1/2 1/3 2/5 5/10. Definitely the place to go if you are London. They have their own parking free of charge as well.

Super mario seems to have an issue with the Vic!! I check the toruny schedule most weeks and it is always up to date!! The Vic is by far the most professionally run room in London and possibly the UK. Good systems, TD’s and dealers. The table service is good, there are always a few servers around. The food is also decent, I’ve had food here many times and it’s always been good. The level of cash play is higher than the rest of London, in the smaller tournaments, you often get beginners, which helps. The only negatives is some of the older regs are just so grumpy and seem to be able to get away with anything by the management.

The tournament schedule is never up to date, Cmon gents get your poker business together… Also lousy food…. Best tournaments in London but would never make top 10 in North America. Busy place with lots of locals. Go see for yourself one of londons best..2 stars only.

Sad decline of a once great poker room, 09/07/2013
By Deck_review

Haven’t played here for a while as the top players have now left for better things. Gave it another go recently and was not impressed. There are no quality players. Just the usual morons who think attitude makes you a good player. Read a report last year where even a journalist playing for the first time beat their current so called resident professional. Shame.

This well known poker place is very disapointing. The computer table reservation system is a nice feature. The staff and management are average at best and not so friendly. The poker room is small and you will wait 30-60+ minutes to play. Food is limited and also average. I have been there 6 times in 2012 so far. On the + side, this is where you will find the most players for cash games and tournaments. 1/2 locals/1/2tourists For UK, it is 3 stars but compare to the best places, 2 max. Try it anyway…

Good spread of tournamnts – knowledgeable & likeable dealers. Standard of players is v good – the lower end trnamnts occasionally have inexperienced runners. Roomy cardroom, – final table gets a free drink each. The smoking area is a long way from tables though. Cant think of any other negatives.

My preferred poker place in London for tournaments and some occasional cash-games. Nice people around. Trustable. Negative: lack of interesting tourneys. Only tuesday 90£ one interesting. Positive: good bigger mtts events or series (25/25, etc…). Professionalism. Dealer are professional, mangment too, if not perfect. Room is well done, clean. Food is decent. Great fidelity tournament (i did no try, yet) with 60k gted for free !!! If you have something to prove in poker, in london, it would be there.

Well played my 1st poker tourney in Aspers on Sunday after giving up online poker and the crazy bad beats. I found it clean, the staff helpful and the dealers Professional. I will be back to play again and I am sure my experience wasnt a one off.

VERY well managed, 18/01/2014

I have been playing at the Vic weekly for about 3 months now, though I just play tournaments, and I must say, there are ALL kinds of players at the Vic. The dealers are respectful and courteous and there always seems to be seats available on short notice. There are some sharks, but they’re there at every poker game right? Overall, one of the best poker experiences I have ever had, and winning just makes it that much sweeter.

Not great, 21/05/2013
By Cardplayer

Played here only once. Not going back as there is a very bad atmosphere in there. Got the opinion that they don’t like new faces, especially if you win a few hands. Some of the players are a bit old and bitter. Try elsewhere.

Great place to play cash in London. You will never know what you will get and how the table dynamic will be. The waitresses are often busy, if not overwhelmed on busy nights, but the service is decent.. There’s ALWAYS a table for a cash session at the Vic.

I like the vic a lot.I hear pros come here to play, but certainly not at the low stakes I play at, because its pretty common to get some fish at the 1-2 games. Its more “impersonal” than some of the smaller, private clubs, but its well run and professional.

I’m not sure how anyone can leave a 1 star review because the standard of players are poor? that’s like complaining because the slots keep paying out!
