Grosvenor Casinos now have their online poker room offering hosted by Microgaming, so the software is identical as sites such as 32Red and Betsafe. Established in 1970, Grosvenor Casinos is a UK-based chain of 55 casinos located in major towns and cities across the UK. A trusted staple in the UK gaming industry for decades this is a reputable website for Poker players to trust.
While Grosvenor’s poker client isn’t quite as customizable as the market leaders software, it is quite a nice offering, with a clean and simple layout. The cards and backgrounds are interchangeable and there are all the usual betting and raising % buttons included automatically. The most pleasing to the eye setting in my view is the ‘Stealth Mode’ which can be accessed by having any table open, clicking the top left menu icon, then accessing setting and selecting it. This takes away avatars and the bright background images and leaves the player’s view a lot more concentrated on the game in hand.
The site has simply No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha on offer, with a decent amount of cash games, tournaments and Sit n Go’s on offer around the clock. As well as free play options for those players looking to pick up the game without playing for real money just yet.
Mostly the tournament action is low to mid stakes, so if you are just starting your budding poker journey I can recommend taking a shot at beating these games, with a soft player pool due to players being drawn to the site for many other reasons than Poker, the level of play is well below that of competitors sites.
There are some nice daily guarantees such as the €6,000 Mosh pit with a modest €22 buy-in and some of the weekend games get prize pools of €50,000 for an investment of €110.
A fast fold option similar to others on the market like PokerStars ZOOM, where every time you click fold in the game you will instantly be dealt a new hand at another table within the pool of players. The games are 6 handed and only run for No-limit Hold’em and although the site has the option of €025/0.50 usually on the micro stakes of €0.01/€0.02 – €0.05/€0.10 games are running.
This is the Microgaming network’s answer to Spin & Go’s, No-limit Hold’em 3-seater Sit & Go tournaments with buy-ins of €1, €5, €10, €20 and €50. Once 3 players have bought in, Fish Party will start an online slot game the tournament prize pool is decided by the outcome of that spin.
Winners can get 5,000x the buy-in PLUS the progressive jackpot. Winner-takes-all prizes are set at 2x, 4x, 6x, 10x, 25x and 50x the buy-in however the prize pool is split 50/30/20 for the two largest prizes of 100x and 5,000x + progressive jackpot
There is a fairly healthy ecosystem of both Hold’em and Omaha players in the cash game pool. With ring games running from Micro stakes of €0.02/€0.04 all the way up to €5/€10. Most ring game action is 6max although there are 9 handed tables on offer, they rarely fill up.
Heads up action makes up a great deal of the play on the site, with the full range of stakes on offer again from Micros all the way to some High Stakes €50/€100 action being played, I would highly recommend downloading this software if you are a fan of playing heads up poker either No-limit Hold’Em or Pot limit Omaha, as there is pretty solid traffic around the clock in both variants.
With regards to any other format of Poker, there simply isn’t any, so for any mixed game fans, you will have to look elsewhere.
Sit n Go’s
The Sit n Go action on the site is very limited in action, with only Micro stakes 6 max games ever filling up. Heads Up Sit n go’s, however, are a favorite of players on this network, action can be found at all stakes from €5.50 all the way up to €1050 a game. The most common games being Super Turbo followed by Turbo structures. Heads up poker is a great place to learn if you are just starting out and if you want to win some big money and like your short stack heads up game then there is some good money to be made in these games with players giving constant action.
Without a doubt, the best part about joining this poker room is the online qualifiers for all the events held within the Grosvenor casinos around the UK.
There are 4 tours running in the UK alone, including the 25/25 held all over the UK with a £200+25 buy-in, 25,000 chip stacks with a Guarantee of £25,000. The site has a 10 Seat GTD qualifier every Tuesday at 8 pm along with 2 other qualifiers with 5 seats up for grabs, these games have a £30 buy in but the site runs constant feeder satellites every day starting at just 25p.
Similarly, Grovesnor hosts the Deepstack Tour with a £115+15 buy-in and £12,000 Guarantee with huge 50,000 starting stacks, plenty of seats up for grabs online 20 x £115+15 seats can be won every week.
The site offers also offers 3 GUKPT seats guaranteed every Wednesday and Sunday at 9pm and feeder satellites start at just 25p.
Players can also bag seats to the U.K. Student Poker Championship and the Goliath which for just a £125 buy-in Guarantees a first prize of £100,000.
Grosvenor have rakeback in the way of PLAY points which can be collected via playing on the site that can even be redeemed for things like meals in your local UK casino as well as the usual options for things like free play online and more. 9.24 points are earnt per £1 paid in rake in either cash games or tournaments and 43 points equal £1 cash.
Deposits and Withdrawals
As always all major Credit and Debit cards are accepted, you can also deposit using PaySafeCard and PayPal. From my experience using my Visa Debit card withdrawals take between 1-2 business days.
A great addition for most Poker players that are looking to qualify for live events at an affordable level and try and grab the cash and glory at one of Grosvenor’s many Casinos. A solid platform for recreational tournament players to take on the soft fields and build up a nice bankroll. A heads up Omaha and Hold’em players dream! This is really where this site comes alive, there is a wealth of action in heads up cash games and heads up sit n go’s. Drawbacks include not many high stakes tournaments due to limited players and barely any ring game Sit n Go traffic, so if either of these game types is your wheelhouse I would look for another site with more traffic.
