Punto Banco

One of the best casino games, its’ beauty lies in its sheer simplicity, Punto Banco rules revolve around the magic number 9. The player bets on which hand – between theirs and the dealer – will be closest to a count of 9. A little similar to blackjack in setup, Punto Banco is also popular thanks to the fact it can be played by up to 12 people at once.

Punto Banco is a brilliant game for groups with differing experience levels, looking to enjoy a night of gaming together. The game is easy to pick up as play progresses, making it one of the most inclusive games for friends or colleagues on a night out.

Napoleons Manchester offers three Punto Banco tables, with attentive dealers and decks ready when you are. Napoleons have a host of fantastic gaming facilities for you to enjoy. Here’s a glimpse of some of our other games you could be enjoying on a night out in Manchester.

Napoleons Manchester is pleased to present four mahjong tables, available every day from midday in our gaming lounge. The Chinese tile game has taken on a life of its own over the centuries, finding a firm place at the finest casino venues.

Mahjong rules can appear a little involved, depending on the style you play, but it is simple to pick up as you play along. Based on a grid of 144 tiles using Chinese characters and symbols. There are three separate suits, each of which are split into numbered runs (from 1 to 9).

In a similar vein to poker, your aim is to make a mahjong – a specific combination of tiles that is traditionally four sets of three and one pair. To do this, you will need to be strategic about tiles you discard, and those you pick up as the game travels from player to player.



With two dedicated blackjack tables at Napoleons Manchester, you will have ample opportunity to beat ‘The House’ to 21.

Blackjack is a simple game played against a dealer, or ‘The House’. You begin by placing cash on the table to buy chips and place your bet. The dealer will deal two cards. When it comes to your turn, you can either ask the dealer for more cards, or confirm, ‘no more cards’. The objective is to have a better hand than the dealer, without exceeding 21. Exceeding 21 means you’re bust.

Roulette is the quintessential casino classic. The action takes place at a roulette wheel, where a single ball is spun across 37 numbers, 0 to 36. Numbers are split into two colours, red and black.

Players will place bets on a single or range of numbers, the colour red or black or whether the number is odd or even. The croupier spins the wheel, then spins the ball in the opposite direction. When the ball lands, the winning number and colour determines who wins and who loses.

There are six American roulette tables available at Napoleons Manchester. Guests are provided with one of the most luxurious evenings of roulette outside of the famous casinos in Monte-Carlo and Macau. Join us for an evening of gaming to find out why.

Slot Games and ER Terminals

Slot games are some of the most popular casino staples, largely thanks to their ease of accessibility. While there are many different slot game brands and styles, the basics are that players need to match symbols that appear across a series of reels, which you bet on and spin. Winning lines may vary from game to game, as may the number of lines and pay-outs available.

Of course, Napoleons Manchester is also pleased to present electronic casino table games, too. We provide twenty different slot terminals and twenty eight electronic gaming or ER terminals across the lounge, offering a plethora of choice in solo casino gaming.


Three Card Poker

Three card poker is doubly fun because you not only win based on how good your hand is, but you also play against the dealer. Here, you aim to make the best possible poker hand, using just three cards. The game is designed so that it is played at speed and is hugely popular because it is quick to learn and very entertaining.

Napoleons Manchester offer both a three card poker table for you to play, with virtual games also available in the lounge.
