Grosvenor SportsBook Review
Launched in August of 2016, Grosvenor Casino’s sportsbook arm is getting some early attention thanks to a name that had already been well established at the slots and tables. It’s great to see that they are available in the UK so, if you are looking to add another bookmaker to your widening portfolio, why should you consider this operator?
Unlike some other casinos that have performed this crossover, there is a welcome offer for new sportsbook players and it can earn you £20.00 in free bets with a minimal outlay. £5.00 is all it needs to trigger things so, when you sign up with some basic details, fund that amount and your tokens will be on their way.
To claim them, stake an opening bet at £5.00 or more and at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or longer and when this bet has been settled, a £20.00 free token will be added to your account.
At the time of writing there were no ongoing offers for current players but this is common for a new bookie and if the situation changes, we will bring them to you via our news feeds.
Sporting Markets and Odds Value
There is a huge list of events here and if you are a based in the UK, you should really have everything you need. Not only are Grosvenor UK-friendly, there is something of a focus on British sport in the following list.
Like best bookies, you can also find eSports, Politics and Entertainment among these markets and this really is one of the biggest lists out there. As for value, we’ve checked a selection of sports and found competitive prices on most with football standing out in particular.
Overall, the choice of funding providers may be a little smaller than other operators but one real positive here is the presence of Paypal. That alone opens Grosvenor Sports up to a lot of UK punters and alongside this you can also make use of Skrill, Neteller, PaySafeCard and all the usual debit and credit card providers.
The main help facility here is a Freephone number in the UK and this is listed prominently at the top right of the home page. Not all of us like to phone in the digital age however so if you scroll to the very bottom of the site, the ‘need more help’ button takes you to a separate window where you get a list of FAQs.
There is an e-mail and a physical address and while Grosvenor’s Sportsbook has plenty of help options, the full list of contacts could be easier to find.
For a casino crossing over and providing a sportsbook, this is a very good start for Grosvenor who are getting the basics right and providing a tempting platform for new players. Firstly there is that welcome deal which is on the small side but easy to obtain and from there you have one of the best sets of markets around.
There is very little to criticise other than the fact that that contact options aren’t well publicised and a Live Chat Operator would be a welcome add, but overall this is another great outlet for the UK betting community.
