Our Poker Cash Games

Whether you’re new to poker, or an experienced gamer, we have a poker game to suit you.  
You can buy in for as little as £50 with blinds starting at just £1/£2, affording you to enjoy your evening without raising the stakes too high. We offer the best value poker in London - all games are raked at 5% with a cap of £10 (£5 between 8am and 2pm).

Like to sit on a slightly deeper game whilst still playing £1/£2? We’ve introduced our DEEPstack game £1/2 NLH. With an increased minimum buy in of £250 and no maximum combined with a permanent cap of £5, it’s a formula for action!

We take an additional £1 out of pots over £25 for our new Cash Race which has a guaranteed monthly prize pool of £25,000, and the ever popular Bad Beat Jackpot which gives you the chance to win big even if you lose!

 The Empire Poker Room at the Casino at the Empire is at the very heart of the London poker scene located in London’s iconic Leicester Square.
