Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Jun. 30th 2015 3:36 PM

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.

The club are now trying to get the money back, plus interest which equates to approximately £438 a day. But, here’s the rub, he claims to have previously self excluded himself from the casino.

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.

PayPal Casinos

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Jun. 10th 2015 11:04 AM

Life is getting so complex! The amount of admin we have top get through these days can be astonishing. There are ways to make things a bit easier though. E-billing takes care of the shredding, and can save you a few quid at the same time, so what can casino players do to cut down on the hassle?

One thing players can do is amalgamate their casino accounts by using sites that accept PayPal as a depositing method. PayPal is one of many e-Wallet choices, but is one of the most popular. One reason for the method popularity is its wide acceptance.

New Slots On Gala Casino

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, May. 20th 2015 10:54 AM

Gala Casino are a great brand who never rest on their laurels. We have seen casino sites out there that seem to be happy with offering their players a mere thirty or forty games, but, I wonder how long they will be around.

This month Gala Casino added another twelve slots, which is quite impressive, and to keep it ‘fresh’, the games come from six separate software providers. We’ve all been on online casinos where there is an apparent wealth of choice, a huge list of slots to play, but often, once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all.

Possible Casino Withdrawal Problems

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, May. 15th 2015 11:30 AM

MB24 casino have closed their doors to UK players and there is concern that UK members already registered on the site may be having difficulty withdrawing from their accounts. The fear has been sparked by reports that business partners have been having problems retrieving monies owed them.

UK players are no longer able to register on the site which is not registered with the Gambling Commission. The news is quite surprising because the UK registration and legislation issue was, or should have been, known to all casinos marketing to UK players in late 2014.

eCOGRA Casino Testing

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, May. 12th 2015 1:38 PM

If you are familiar with online casinos then you may have noticed that some of them have the eCOGRA badge amongst others such as GPWA. Both of these badges signify that the casino site is a ‘trusted one’, but what exactly does eCOGRA do?

eCOGRA is a UK approved testing agency, the ‘UK’ bit being the important part, anyone can test a site, so you need to be sure that the testers have themselves been tested, and as the UK is particularly tight when it comes to gaming regulation the UK seal of approval speaks volumes.

Biggest UK Slots Jackpot

Posted by Gareth on: Thursday, Apr. 16th 2015 3:16 PM

Last year gambling legislation was changed allowing slot machines in casinos to pay out up to £20,000 in a single jackpot. And, to our knowledge the first full payout has been hit by a lucky punter at the Casino MK in Milton Keynes.

Raw Casino

Mind you, it’s no surprise that it was paid out at the Aspers super casino as they’ve got a great record on big slots jackpots. The winner Joy Giles from Milton Keynes who took home the ‘big cheque’ is one of many big winners since the casino opened (do banks really accept cheques that big? Do they have a special till for them?).
