The launch follows a night for private customers on Thursday 1 December, where Gambling Insider was in attendance as the new property displayed its tables, terrace, bar and lounge to players.
The FIFA World Cup was also on show, as Japan secured another ultimate upset win over Spain, ensuring its original victim this tournament – Germany – was sent home packing. Auf Wiedersehen.
A live band welcomed casino players and there was even almost a big win for Gambling Insider at the roulette tables... almost.
In terms of the products on show at the Metropolitan Casino, there were slots and ETGs from IGT, Novomatic and Scientific Games (now Light and Wonder); Cammegh provided roulette wheels, while Passport Technology provided cash machines.
There were hundreds of customers present and the Metropolitan Casino will now open to the public as of Friday 2 December.
Mayfair's casino scene has been synonymous with the high-end region throughout London's modern history.
Elsewhere in London's land-based casino scene, there is of course the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, which will once again host the Global Gaming Awards London in February 2023.
The Shortlist for those Awards is currently being compiled, with the Shortlist magazine available in January. The Casino of the Year Award is a prominent category at the ceremony.
