The Grosvenor Casino is a brand of casinos that I am familiar with from living in the UK. They are based in most of the major UK cities, I am unsure how big their reach is globally but in the UK they are definitely one of the biggest land-based casinos around and are very professional. Their land-based casinos are always immaculately presented and the staff are all pretty slick and professional.
So it was with interest that I realised they also have an online offering including a live casino facility. As a customer at the real life Grosvenor Casinos I was also entitled to a better welcome offer than someone who just happens to find the casino online. As a real life customer I was able to put in my membership card number and immediately got a £20 no deposit bonus put into my new account.
The normal offer is simply a 100% bonus offer, so if I wasn't a real life customer I would have had to put my hand in my pocket to try the online casino out. Therefore if you have a Grosvenor casino nearby, I'd say why not pop in and join, it will take you 5 minutes, after which you can join online and get the £20 free.
So onto the live casino i went with my £20 free credit. The first thing I realised is that they are using a very similar setup as 888 Live Casino. The dealers are from Latvia and would appear to be the same company as 888 are using to provide dealers, albeit there are specific branded rooms for Grosvenor (around 4 rooms at present) as well as the same selection of 'general' dealer rooms that you can also access from 888.
The specific rooms that Grosvenor offer in their own branded rooms are as follows:
- Grosvenor Blackjack £3 - £1000
- Grosvenor Blackjack Gold £10 - £5000
- Grosvenor Baccarat, £1 - £2500
- Grosvenor Roulette £0.50 - £50,000
So I had a try on the Blackjack room, it was nice to be able to bet as low as £3 per bet, as at 888 Casino it is a minimum of £5 a bet which means you can burn through your £20 pretty quickly. The dealers were again friendly, chatty and attractive, as would be expected from 'Evolution Latvia' which is the company behind these live dealer rooms. The options available were plentiful with the full range of side bets that you can get in the real life Grosvenor Casinos.
An interesting USP for the Grosvenor rooms was that they have UK dealers working on the roulette table. This isn't however some different location in the UK, these are UK dealers who have moved to work in Latvia, which I found pretty interesting. As a travel enthusiast it was interesting to talk to these UK dealers about what life is like in Latvia from a UK person's perspective and I guess that is one of the things I love about live casinos, that you can have a chat with the dealers while you play the games!
After a short while I had burned through my £20, I had a little success at first and got up to about £50 but soon found myself on a losing streak on the Blackjack and never really recovered to the point where I had £2.50 in my account and lost it with a few cheeky 50p punts on the roulette. So I was unable to repeat my spectacular success at 888 Live Casino where I made £2000 out of a free £20 no Deposit bonus, however I did enjoy the rooms and the feel of the place and would recommend it to anyone, in particular to UK land-based members who can give it a try for free with the £20 no deposit offer.
