Qype: Paris casino in Blackpool


Having played here a couple of times now in the poker room as well as enjoyed the thrills and spills of roulette, slots and blackjack, this is certainly my number one choice of casino in blackpool. The staff are the best trained I have ever experienced in a casino and I think this is down to the cardroom manager, James Mitchell who is a credit to the Paris Casino Blackpool Valet service was fast and efficient and they offer free soft and non-alcoholic drinks, the casino also features a restaurant which is certainly on my list to try. Gaming wise they can accommodate 100 players in the card room and they offer roulette, blackjack, slots as well as a full size craps table. There is also plenty of seating and room in the casino and smokers have the option of 2 smoking areas. The casino is very clean and well maintained and worth a visit if your a gambling person or someone who likes the odd flutter.

Qype: Romero in Blackpool

BlackpoolEating & DrinkingFastfood & Takeaway

Was around the corner from the hotel I was staying at whilst I was playing poker at the Paris Casino Blackpool A typical Fast Food shop serving kebabs, pizzas , burgers and all that accompanies these, the food was very fresh and the chilli on the kebab was hot but not too hot that it felt like a volcano erupting in my mouth, will probably use again next time I stay over and everywhere else is closed.

Qype: Shellard Hotel in Blackpool

BlackpoolHotels & HolidaysHotels

Stayed here on a Saturday whilst playing poker at the Paris Casino Blackpool as it is much cheaper than traveling back home considering the time of night/morning I leave the casino. The room I stayed in was actually a twin although I wasn’t penalised for room occupancy. I opted for “Room Only” as there are plenty of cafes nearby and a McDonalds around the corner. I was extremely happy with the price of just £15.00 a night, which although out of season is an absolute bargain for a hotel that is just 2 minutes away from the promenade. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who does play poker at the Paris Casino Blackpool (A mere 10 minutes walk away) as well as just a few minutes from the Gcasino Blackpool. This is my hotel of choice for future stays in Blackpool

PRESS RELEASE: Redbet Receive Two Casinomeister Awards

PRESS RELEASE: Redbet Receive Two Casinomeister Awards


Redbet Casino is celebrating the fact that they won two accolades in this year’s Casinomeister Awards after collecting Best New Casino and Best Casino Manager.

The awards, which have been issued for more than a decade,  are compiled each year to highlight the best and worst of the online gaming industry by Casinomeister the most respected consumer champion and advocate of fair play in online gaming.

As well as the two main awards Redbet also received an honourable mention in the Best Customer Service Awards 2012..

Best New Casino of 2012

  Relatively a late-comer to the site, Redbet already had a proven track record of being a well-managed player focused casino. Players have been extremely pleased with the treatment they’ve received – fast pay-outs, excellent promotions, and award winning NetEnt games. An all-around outstanding casino – keep up the great work!
Good going Redbet – high fives all around.


Best Casino Manager of 2012

  This was a really tough one since there are a number of outstanding managers who are doing a bang-up job dealing with players. This year’s award goes to Redbet Andy. Redbet is a new casino on the site, but Redbet Andy’s dedication, knowledge, and effectiveness is one of the reasons I brought the casino on. He’s been doing a great job, and the members of the forum have been giving him definite kudos for a job well done.


We spoke with Andy Braithwaite at Redbet regarding the awards and asked him how he felt about Redbet picking up 2 accolades and what did 2013 have in store for Redbet?

“It’s great, I’m a massive fan of what Casinomeister does and of the community there, so it’s really nice to be recognised for doing something I really enjoy.

We’ve got a lot planned for 2013 in terms of providers and functionality on Redbet but whatever we add to the site and however we expand, the most important thing will always be looking after our players. “


We look forward to seeing more of Redbet and I am sure they will be picking up many more awards in the time to come. You can check them out at http://www.redbet.com where they offer Casino, Mobile Casino, Live Casino, Poker on 2 Networks and Sports Book Betting.

Qype: The Stork Inn in Conder Green

Conder GreenEating & DrinkingEating & DrinkingPubs & BarsPubs

Ate here the first time, on our way back from a trip to Cumbria, we passed it on the way out and decided to stop on the way back so was early evening. The menu is South African based and I was really lucky to have arrived here during National Curry Week, the restaurant was packed and their was quite a wait for our first course, this was more down to the popularity than the efficiency of the staff. All I can say the food was well worth the wait, the starter we had was a mix of pates made with cream cheese, my main was a Durban, a South African beef curry, in all my years of experience in eating curries this was and still is the BEST I have ever eaten, unfotunately it was only on for Curry Week. Overall the experience was amazing, the food out of this world, but if you are impatient and don’t like to wait this place is not for you, however if you appreciate fine dining at a very affordable price, put this on the top of your list of places to eat in 2013.

Qype: One Stop Convenience Store in Poulton-le-Fylde


This is our local shop, having recently been taken over by the One Stop Franchise, they do offer a wide range of items for those that cannot be bothered to go to town, although they have a good choice of food, wines and beers they must be seriously catagorised as a convenience store, after I complained several times about the bin being next to where I can fasten my dog, I was not shocked to find that the bin was almost next to the fastener with numerous amounts of chewing gum on the floor to add additional threats to my dog. All I can say this store is “SPECIAL” in the fact that any kind of management that is in place is not reflected however I should not knock places that are owned by retards and run by retards as it does keep them off our streets, ,my New Years Resolution is to avoid this place until either it closes down or Hell freezes over, my money is on that Hell will be warmer a LOT longer ;)
