1. Black Taxi Casino, Multiple Locations, England (60 sq ft)

The casino that tops the list has to be the black cab casino. Casino giants, Grosvenor launched a marketing campaign called 'play your way' in support of 2016's summer of sport. This year was vital as the Summer Olympics was occurring, as was WBC, Wimbledon, and Test Cricket - to name a few. The black cab was kitted out with a blackjack table, a TV showing Sky Sports, a bar, and professional croupier.

The taxi gave rides to the Hill Street Grosvenor casino in Birmingham for free of charge or you could be driven to anywhere in Birmingham for the cost of an optional donation to Grosvenor's chosen charity - Carers Trust. The campaign lasted for three weeks, across different cities, but boy do we wish this lasted forever!
