The famous Hippodrome Casino in the heart of London has finally gone on line. The fine landmark establishment in Leicester Square with such a fine gambling pedigree has teamed up with Microgaming and together they have performed their magic. The land based casino has gone through a revamp lately and the 100 year old building has never looked better. This is shown on the new website too which encourages online players to pay the bricks and mortar casino a visit and there's no reason why not to as it provides a fantastic day out. The Hippodrome is following in the footsteps of many a land based casino by opening its virtual doors too proving that online and offline can indeed work very well together. As well as the Microgaming casino, let's not forget that the deal was signed with PokerStars last year who not only provide the online poker portal but have also taken over operations in the land based poker room.
Online and Offline Synergy
George Constantinou is the online casino director and states that they have tried to create synergy between the two operations with branding remaining as close as possible. This has worked and the new site does indeed have a feel of elegance and style about it. Constantinou states that, “I think it’s important to encourage our online customers to also experience our award-winning venue." A nice touch is that players can deposit into the online casino at the bricks and mortar casino creating even more of a bond between the two. There's a generous welcome bonus for new players at Hippodrome online too, with a $1000 bonus split over the first three deposits. With more than 450 games on offer with all of Microgamings best titles available. Players can enjoy the popular Tomb Raider, Hellboy and The Dark Knight slots as well as Microgamings well known progressive titles. Of course table games are well covered and the favorites such as blackjack, roulette and video poker are all on offer. It's great to see and such an esteemed establishment getting involved with the online side of things, proving that the two can and will evolve together.
