March 2011: The Rank Group (PLC) run a number of online gambling sites including Mecca Bingo, Blue Square and Grosvenor Casino, the online front for the land-based Grosvenor casinos in the UK.

Until recently, Grosvenor Casino has focused on IGT and Novomatic games in their Instant Play casino but now they have added a download casino using Playtech software and with a £20 introductory bonus.

Although Grosvenor Casino restrict certain countries from signing up (the USA, France and Germany being among them), being part of the Rank Group means the casino comes with a stellar reputation.

I have signed up from here in the UK and so far, so good.

I have been playing their Instant Casino for some years – games like and the Marvel slots have yet to arrive at Grosvenor Casino.

But they do have those I mention above and plenty of others.

The main advantage is the speed of cashouts at Grosvenor Casino.

There is no dreaded “reverse pending” time to draw you back in to chasing your losses plus cashouts are usually processed within 24 hours, sometimes quicker.

It amkes a pleasant change to find a new Playtech casino with a top reputation and one that doesn’t utilise the reverse Pending feature: one of my pet hates.

The only other I can think of that doesn’t have that is Tote Casino (which I also play regularly). Tote has more games but I think Grosvenor Casino won’t be too far behind and the fact Grosvenor Casino are licenced in Alderney – the strictest gaming jurisdiction – is a huge plus for me.

Examples of famous slot machines made by Playtech Playtech are one of the most famous online slot makers in the world, but are yet to feature in Las Vegas.

This is quite surprising, because some of their slots are amazing and they offer a hug range of 'famous brand' slots.
