NoUnfortunately players from Canada are NOT accepted.

If you’re UK based then it’s likely that you’ve heard of Grosvenor Casinos or the Rank Group that own them. They have 56 land based casinos that cover the United Kingdom (England & Scotland).

Like the Hippodrome Casinothey’ve also invested heavily in an online casino presence and have a large library of casino games from the industries leading casino software suppliers. 

The most important for me (and you!) is their Live Casino software that is supplied by Evolution Gaming.

If you’re thinking like I was (Oh no! not another Evolution Casino!) then think again. 

You’d be forgiven for assuming that all Evolution Casinos are the same, it’s certainly true that the software is, but you should look past that and consider the whole package when choosing a casino to play at. 

The reason they are on Live Casino Comparer is three-fold:

  • Firstly – They are backed by a land-based presence like no other casino, so they are as safe as you can get.
  • Secondly – They have a unique selling point that other online casinos can’t offer and that is they have integrated their player loyalty systems. This means that you can hold one account and you’ll be rewarded for your play and loyalty at both the online and land-based casinos. You’re then able to redeem the Play Points at either for free gifts, drinks, food etc.
  • Thirdly – They have an extensive range of dedicated tables in their own dealing room at Evolutions Malta live casino studio. All of the games can be played on a range of mobile devices and tablets.

The Grosvenor Live Casino has a full range of live casino games, in fact, the only one missing is Sic Bo, which you can only currently play at Playtech Live Casinos like Bet365:

Roulette – There are 7 tables, with one dedicated Grosvenor table with a British dealer. Variations include VIP tables, the new Immersive HD roulette, French Roulette with La Partage and Auto Roulette called Slingshot. American Roulette is a new addition as is Grosvenor’s own Dual Play Roulette table streamed from their Victoria Casino in London.

Blackjack – There are 20 tables, 7 which are dedicated to Grosvenor live casino and 9 VIP tables. Blackjack sides bets (21+3, Bet Behind and Perfect Pairs) are available at all the tables.

Baccarat – The dedicated table has recently disappeared to be replaced by the new Baccarat Squeeze tables. Stake ranges are greater than before and the overall playing experience has been enhanced by the new playing interface. A pairs side bet is available.

Casino Holdem – There’s 1 generic table, it’s a multiplayer poker game where you have to get a better 5 card poker hand than the dealer to win. There are optional side bets that give a greater payout if you hit a few hands.

3 Card Poker – There’s 1 generic table. Again it’s a one handed multi-player game where your 3 card poker hand must beat the dealers. The Trips side bet is worth playing as this pays out even if the dealer beats you. There’s also a 6 card bonus side bet which is harder to hit but has better payouts. It’s one of my favourite games. Using the right 3 card poker strategy will help you to maximise your opportunities to win. 

Caribbean Stud Poker – Another recent addition. Caribbean Stud poker is the third poker derived game. This time one 5 card player hand is played against the dealers 5 cards. It’s a straight race who has the better hand. The 5+1 Bonus payouts are worth having if you hit a good hand.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em – The latest poker derived game from Evolution is a cracker. Played with a single deck and one player hand you have to beat the dealer with a better poker hand. 3 betting rounds provide the excitement. It’s another game I’m falling in love with 🙂

Dreamcatcher – This is not a game that I will play regularly. It’s a wheel of fortune, but with a difference. You can have a 2x or a 7x multiplier applied to your win if it’s active. That’s can give you a payout of up to 280/1.

There is also a multi-table/game facility that can be used to display and play up to 4 different tables/games simultaneously on your screen. It arranges the games quite neatly depending on your screen size. Useful if you like playing multiple tables, something I like to do with Blackjack.

Live Casino Video Demo

I’ve put together a 4:49 min video of all the games that you can play at the Grosvenor Live casino.  It will give you a flavour of what it’s like to play there and as you can see I didn’t win all the hands I played!

Banking

Grosvenor offers a range of banking options for their customers. Depending on which ones you use will determine how easily and quickly you’ll receive your money when you withdraw.

There are restrictions on deposits made with Mastercard if it’s not registered in the UK, so expect to have to provide verification documentation to arrange payment by bank transfer or cheque. 

The easiest methods are debit cards and of course online wallets like Neteller or Paypal.

Security

Having a big land-based presence certainly gives you the comfort feeling that Grosvenor is not going anywhere fast.

They are backed by the Rank Group which is a huge organisation listed on the London Stock Exchange. 

As far as Licensing goes Grosvenor live casino is licensed through the Alderney and UK Gambling Commission.

Bonuses

There are an impressive array of bonuses available for new and existing players. If you’re an existing customer of the land based casinos then you qualify for a free no deposit bonus of £20 when you sign up.

Other bonuses include a £20 Welcome bonus when you deposit £20 and wager it 5 times. There is also a first-month offer of 50% cash back up to £500 for any of your losses over that period.

One thing to note is that the Bonuses cannot be used on Live Casino Games. 🙁

Summary

I’m a fan of Evolution software anyway so that’s a good start. Grosvenor are pretty unique because they have that land based casino presence and I like that.

The dedicated tables make a difference as you get the opportunity to take part in on table promotions. VIP’s are well catered for, but table limits aren’t as high as you get at William Hill who also has dedicated tables.

I’ve enjoyed playing at the tables at Grosvenor and have been lucky enough to play in one of their land based casinos underneath the Grosvenor Hotel in London.

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed when you play here.
