Win A BMW With Grosvenor Casino

Posted by Gareth on: Monday, Oct. 19th 2015 1:04 PM

We do like casino prize draws as they are the ‘prize without ties’. Bonuses can be great, but they always come with terms which can make withdrawing money a pain, and some players may think they are more hassle than they are worth.

Grosvenor Casino’s latest online promotion comes with no ties, it’s a simple prize draw. The more you deposit and play the more chance you have of winning a BMW 3 Series and a share of £100k in cash and prizes.

Genting No Deposit Bonus

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Oct. 6th 2015 4:09 PM

Genting have just revamped their casino website, and as their obviously pleased with the change they want to show it off and get some new players through their virtual doors and on to the wheels and reels. To entice new players they are offering a £10 no deposit bonus, which is something we can never resist.

“A tenner, is that all?” you may say! But as no deposit bonuses go this one is very good. Some no deposit bonuses are not bonuses at all, just mere virtual money for you to try the site out, but you can use this bonus to play real live games.

Phil Ivey’s Titillation Defense

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Aug. 28th 2015 1:47 PM

Phil Ivey is no stranger to the courtroom, and although he’s never really found himself in proper hot water, things don’t always go his way. He has compared himself to Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Muhammad Ali, and like the latter, the poker ace is not afraid of a fight.

In the latest case he has been again accused of cheating at the tables, this time by the The Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City. While we don’t usually cover news from over the pond we found this one too interesting and lively to resist.

Making SENSE With Self Exclusion

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Aug. 25th 2015 2:15 PM

Self exclusion at casinos be it online or in your local casino has always been problematic with questions frequently being raised as to its effectiveness. In 2016 the Gambling Commission will be amending licensing regulations for land based casinos which will demand that all offline casinos are linked to a national self exclusion scheme.

This is a step in the right direction as the only way to ensure a self exclusion program is in operation is to tie it into the casinos’ licensing conditions, and of course have a monitoring procedure in place, plus make sure that a self excluder can’t walk out the door of one casino straight into another one in the same or another town.

UK Gambling Still Growing

Posted by Gareth on: Monday, Aug. 3rd 2015 11:30 AM

You would think with the recent recession and austerity measures that a lot of industries would be hit hard. This is true for some sectors, however, the gambling sector stands out as being practically recession proof.

In fact, it would appear that the recession may have been instrumental in causing a growth in the gambling sector. We would have expected at least a slow growth in online gaming, perhaps at the expense of offline, however, certain offline sectors have also grown over the period 2009 to 20015.

5K Raw Casino Bonus

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Jul. 24th 2015 1:46 PM

If you spend a lot of time and money spinning reels online, then deposit bonuses can work out well, even with bonus terms and conditions. But you might be better of getting them all from the one casino, otherwise, the play through does become a problem.

If you take advantage of bonuses from multiple casinos it can be a nightmare playing through to a stage where you can withdraw winnings. So, just having the one account is a good way to ensure that if your reels come in with the bonus money you can actually get to withdraw from the casino.

The Ritz Club in Piccadilly is taking a £2 million claim to the High Court against Safa Abdulla Al-Geabury. In February 2014 Mr Al-Geabury wrote a cheque for £2 million which he has failed to honour.

Portsmouth Casino To Close

Posted by Gareth on: Thursday, Jun. 25th 2015 12:20 PM

It was noted last week that casino closures are rare despite the continuing bite of austerity, however, Grosvenor owners Rank have announced that they will be closing Portsmouth’s Grosvenor in Osborne Road. This will be the second closure announced within seven days, which is a bit of a rarity.

It is also the second Grosvenor Casino closure to be announced this year. If you look at the location of the casino on a map of the area you will notice that there is another literally down the road at Gunwharf Quays, which is the only other casino in the area.

Brighton Casino May Close

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Jun. 19th 2015 3:45 PM

Casino openings are more common than closures of late, as despite the recent austerity, whilst not entirely recession proof, gaming doesn’t appear to suffer as much as other industries. So it’s with a bit of surprise that we hear that the Grosvenor G Casino in New Brighton may be closing.

Club owners the Rank Group have not given details as to why the closure is being considered. There are currently three casinos in Brighton, so punters will not be entirely deprived if the venue does close, however this is not good news for the 66 full and part-time staff who work at the Grosvenor G.
