Default Hippodrome Casino


Directly across from the subway station for Leicester Square on Charing Cross Road stands the Hippodrome Casino. Opened in 1900, the Hippodrome wasn't originally used as a casino. Muggles used the space for a wide range of successful circus and variety shows and even hosted the first official jazz gig in the United Kingdom. By 1958, however, the Hippodrome was converted into a nightclub and restaurant and then transformed for in-house events and theatre shows before renovations began in 2009 to turn the space into a buzzing casino.

The four-story casino has been utilized by hundreds of Muggles for decades, keeping the palpable energy and lively atmosphere of the place alive. Numerous bars, restaurants, and a cabaret theatre can be found here in addition to hundreds of betting tables and dinging slot machines. Anyone that is of age is welcome to place their bets and try to win their chicken dinner.

If Muggle blackjack, crabs, or poker isn't enticing enough, there is an alternate option for wizardkind. Taking the elevator down to the basement and going through a magically disguised red door will reveal an underground casino and club that is free of Muggles. House-elves (working as servers), goblins, and, inevitably, some dodgy dealers frequent here.

But then she turned to him and spoke to him and SHE KNEW HIM, LOL, NO WAY. "I know who you are, Genn!" He laughed out loud when she introduced herself like a dope. LOL, typical Genny, eh. Matt missed their good ol' Hogwarts days sort of. Of course he wasn't going to tell her he hadn't really recognised her at first because she was too far away, that was it. "You look..." Fit. "...great! Haven't changed a bit." Quidditch was doing her well, it seemed.

He wondered if his own physical training was doing HIM well. He bet it was, mwaha. It wasn't EASY training to be an Auror, you know. Physically and mentally challenging - don't get him started on the underwater training and his freaking out, okay, that was far gone only not really - but totally worth it. And he was making money working at a pretty awesome job, so happy days.

Anyhow. Genn. "Don't tell me you're a regular??" He said as he noticed she was also heading towards the Casino. Who would've thought!
She laughed. "I thought you needed some memory prodding, we haven't seen each other in ages!" Like four years ago! Well, since they graduated. It was not intentional but she definitely remembered getting annoyed by him back at school - always thought he was immature. And the seasickness thing? That's not so attractive for someone as tough as Genny.

Although look at lil Mathew noowwww. He was doing alrighttttt, meow. Genny noticed the transformation from boy to man, she ain't blind. She kinda was smiling widely partly for that, it was fun meeting your old friends and discovering they turned out to be good-looking tough people. "Yeah? I can say the same to you." About not changing a bit. Excuse her but she would like to think that she got a little taller and fitter, she was a pro Quidditch player now! So, if he didn't notice, then she was not going to admit that he did change.

"I wouldn't say I'm a regular," she was. "But I come here when I feel the need to relish in the rush of winning." That was a weird way of putting it for someone who didn't know Genny and how competitive she was. "Wanna go in together?" Since they were chummy friends and all. Ahem.

"I'm not as dumb as you might remember, Genn." Matt laughed, happy to see his old housemate. But you know what was a good thing? The fact Matt couldn't read her mind. Both the 'seasickness' comment and the fact she saw a transformation 'from boy to man' - lol - would've done two very different things to his ego and neither would be very helpful to this accidental meet up.

Still, HA. Was she just saying he also hadn't changed out of 'politeness' (read: stubbornness) or did she really think that? Then again, he had done pretty much the same thing and not really voiced his true thoughts. Mmm, okay. He'd take that. "I'll take that as a compliment." He grinned before winking. See, they were probably playing the same game. Gryffindors...

'I come here when I feel the need to relish in the rush of winning.' "So, all the time." Matt sent her his signature cheeky grin before laughing. "Let's see if the staff knows your name and then I might believe you're not a regular." He gestured to the door with his hand, letting her go in first before following and actively being on the lookout for any staff members that might recognise Genny, bwahaha.

Genny didn't say anything to the dumb comment, she just laughed along. Because, okay, she didn't think he was dumb just immature. And loud. She was loud, too, though so that wasn't really a part of it. Anyway, they were both changed characters, weren't they? Amazing what four years without Hogwarts could do to a person. Hah. Who knew.

It was not a compliment, but Genny nodded with a lopsided smirk. "As will I." She DID change. But ya know, two could play this game.

"UHM. Pretty sure they don't--" she started just as the receptionist greeted her with 'Miss Tate'. "Oh dang." She lost. Oh wait, no she didn't. "Actually, they know me from the Quidditch magazines and stuff. I'm sure." She tried to turn it around to her own advantage - calling herself a famous Quidditch Beater was what she was doing, ahem ahem.

WOW, it took what, TWO SECONDS? HAHAHAHA!!

Matt let out a loud laugh as soon as the receptionist called Genny by her name. And the way she was deflecting that? Even funnier, HAHAHA! "Suuure. I bet you're a big fan, aren't you..." He looked at the receptionist's name badge. "...Jack? Big fan, no doubt. Shame you're working and can't ask for a photo and autograph - that'd be a bit unprofessional, wouldn't it?" He told the guy before glancing at Genny with a very amused expression. Nudging the bloke with his elbow, he continued. "Don't worry, I'll get her to sign a serviette and will drop it off here at the reception for you before we leave."

The bloke's facial expression added to the great entertainment. Merlin, Matt was always surrounded by the best entertainers in the city, how did he do that??? LOL.

"Anyway, you can sort out something pretty cool for us since I'm with big Quidditch star Genny Tate, right?"

What? It was worth a try. Ha!

It was not like Genny didn't have a sense of humor, she DID, but she hated to lose. Oh, Merlin how she hated it. So now she was just rolling her eyes at Matt as he hollered on, and just kept embarrassing her and himself with the receptionist. "Yeah, yeah, don't answer him." She directed at the poor receptionist. "Fine, so you win this one. But actually, I am a new customer." She started coming here more often after Mason moved out and she set her mind on meeting someone new. A real someone, not those playboys. Obviously, a casino was a good location...

"Oh for sure." She got the sarcasm in his tone, so she gave him an extra sweet smile - the kind that's a bit creepy. "Let's go to the next floor where all the VIP's go. I'll give you a tour." Since he was just a commoner, eheheh.

Matt cracked up and snorted as Genny told the receptionist not to answer him. Boom! Matt won. He did like winning, mind you. His beamy grin showed that, plus the fact he was highly amused. "Not as new as me. This is my first time here. If he remembers your name, mate..." He let out a laugh again because THAT, my friend, meant she was a regular.

Genny was on fire today, making him laugh so much like that. "You should quit Quidditch and go into entertainment, Genn. You're too funny!" That creepy smile, LOL! Priceless. But was she for real or was she joking? He couldn't exactly tell because, you know, she WAS a Quidditch player after all and although Matt wasn't particularly into the game much, he knew for a fact the Wizarding World loved their sports and players. "Alright, let's go then." He said, partially holding back his cheeky grin, which came through as a half smug smile. "Give me a tour either way because I haven't got a clue where to go first." Truth. Matt was going to simply walk around like a headless chicken until he spotted interesting stuff, but since he had his friend here who was CLEARLY a pro at this casino business, he was happy to follow along.
