Information

Casino was THE place to go for fighting games since Streetfighter II. Trivia: The owner, John of Electrocoin had an exclusive deal with Capcom to release Streetfighter games here FIRST in the UK. John was an SF nut and had all the releases here up to months before anyone else. It still had audiences up until SF IV around 2010.

There were also Tohou, SNK and Japanese imported games.

Due to no money in videogames in general, John had the option of cutting down on cabs, then was offered to have the basement of Angel arcade (opposite the tube station) to host games in. Ultimately he decided it wasn't worth the effort. Most of the cabs were sold to Mark at the Heart of Gaming, and in turn he reconditioned them for Lucky777's arcade, where they now reside in Southend.

I was lucky enough to get a heads up and grab a video on the last day it was open (as we knew it) before the refit.
It is truely sad the place has shut, as it was the premiere location for fighting game fanatics.
This video was taken in March 2013. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNOYrpiAqdM

This arcade was refurbished and all videos went in April 2013.
John said it wasn't viable to have arcade games anymore.
It is now all gambling.
