Grosvenor Casino is an online gaming site, running since 2007, owned and operated by the Rank Group, a company with interests in a number of land-based and online betting operations. Rank claims to have been “entertaining Britain since 1937”, which is of course when the original Rank film company was formed, from which the modern entity specialising in interactive gaming has grown.
Britain, Belgium and Spain
Regarding its land-based operation, 95% of the Rank Group’s land-based casinos are in Great Britain; a total of 148 venues. Rank also runs land-based casinos in Belgium, and Bingo halls and other betting operations in Spain. Its interactive online operations, however, including Grosvenor Casino, are licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC). Known for its strict rules, the AGCC not only reassures players that Grosvenor Casino’s games are fair and unbiased, but it also restricts the territories in which players can legally access the casino. US fans, for example, are not permitted to play at Grosvenor Casino; in all other jurisdictions, it is up to the player to check local online gaming regulations and make sure they are legally allowed to play at this casino.
Live Gaming Experience
When it first moved into the online casino market, the Rank Group committed itself to being as interactive as possible; this involved a definite commitment to live casino play online. Grosvenor’s Live Casino offers male and female dealers/croupiers, providing interactive live play in Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack, Hold’em and Three-Card Poker. Owing to Rank’s long experience in land-based casinos, the site design feels like an authentic casino, and the live rooms give a remarkably real experience.
Slots and Other Games
Grosvenor Casino uses an impressive number of software developers to power its games; 15 in total, including industry giants like NextGen Gaming, WMS, Playtech and Mazooma Interactive Games. The result is a huge range of virtual games, in particular slots, with impressive graphics, animations and sound. There are more than 200 slots titles on offer, including Wolf Run, Pharaoh’s Treasure, and movie and TV tie-ins like Star Trek, The X Factor Jackpot, Britain’s Got Talent Superstar and Transformers: Battle for Cybertron.
Progressive slots like Mafia Millions and Marine Mayhem can pay out hundreds of thousands, or even millions of pounds. A decent selection of table and card games are also hosted by Grosvenor Casino, most of them variations of blackjack, poker, baccarat, and roulette, with one or two exotic ones thrown into the mix.
