Genting Casino review

There's a lot of rivalry in the US between land-based and online casinos, with moguls such as Sheldon Adelson hell-bent on outlawing the latter.

Thankfully, there are no such conflicts in the UK. Here to help prove it is Genting Casino, an online operator backed by the Genting Group. They're a Malaysian gaming resorts company who own over forty land-based casinos in Britain.

The Genting Group have been around since 1965, acquiring a stellar reputation. Since they ventured online with an Alderney (and now UK) licensed casino, that reputation has followed them onto the net. But do they have a product worthy of the rep? Read on to find out!

Pros and cons

  • -Backed by one of the world's leading gambling companies
  • -Roulette counts 50% towards WR on the bonus...
  • -Novomatic games, such as Book of Ra
  • -Amazing live casino options
  • -Exclusive £2,000 highroller bonus
  • -Genting targets only the UK market

Promotions and bonuses

The Genting Group has a valuation of around $10 billion, so it's no surprise to find a few tasty bonus offers.

For more cautious gamblers, there's a standard £200 match bonus with a 100% return. Use the promo code PIYW200.

The final offer is for those with big wallets, and it's exclusive to Right Casino customers. It's a mammoth 100% up to £2,000. Depositing a grand gives you fast-track VIP access.

Thee wagering conditions are quite high, but that's to be expected given the size: 50x (bonus only), with only fifteen days per bonus in which to meet them.

There's also a lengthy list of game weightings to consider. Not even all slots count 100 percent, and blackjack and video poker only count 25 percent. On a more positive note, roulette counts an unusually generous 50 percent.

One item in the T&Cs you need to be aware of:

Sports bets do not count towards any Casino bonus wagering requirements. Any Sports bet placed will automatically remove a casino bonus from your account."

It does seem a little odd that forgetting and placing a sports wager might render your casino bonus null and void.

The casino also hosts a number of different promotions on a regular basis, as well as a 'Genting Points' VIP system where bonus points earned by spending cash at the casino can be converted into bonus cash.

Games

The games at Genting Casino are all powered by Playtech, the online gambling company who probably only trail behind Microgaming in terms of the number and the variety of the games they produced.

You find a wide range of slots at the casino, including plenty with Playtech's patented progressive jackpots which give you the opportunity of winning a life-changing amount of cash. Remember though, always gamble responsibly!

You also get to pick and choose from plenty of table and card games, with everything from blackjack and roulette to craps and sic bo.

It shouldn't surprise you either to learn that the online version of Genting has a live casino - in fact it has two. If you're a member of the exclusive Crockford's Casino in Mayfair you can sign on online to play there via your PC. For the rest of us there's live blackjack, baccarat, roulette and casino hold 'em.

Casino snapshots

The style of Genting Casino is a little too busy and cluttered for modern tastes. Navigation is quite simple though, and you're only ever two clicks away from any part of the website. Shame it looks a bit 2010, especially in comparison to other UK-focussed casinos such as bgo and InterCasino.

Software

All the software at the casino is provided by Playtech, and all games are played 'in browser' - no download is required.

The site does have a mobile version, which is simply a mobile-optimised rendition of the main site with only a smaller (but large enough) selection of games.

The live casino options are not available via mobile, although the sports betting action is.

Available Software: Novomatic, Playtech.

Cashier

Cashier options are very slim - credit cards (Visa & Mastercard), debit cards (Maestro, Solo, Visa Delta, Visa Debit or Visa Electron), Skrill and Ukash (deposits only). Transactions can only be processed in British pounds or Euros.

The good news is that there are no withdrawal limits.

Note: the table below contains averages for the given payment services and does not factor in limits on the casino's side. Remember to check the casino's website for specific time/cash limits.

Payment Method Name Depositing Withdrawing Withdraw Time
Credit Card Credit Card £10 - £50000 £10 - £100000 1 - 7 days
Debit Card Debit Card £10 - £50000 £10 - £100000 1 - 7 days
Skrill Skrill £5 - £5000 £250 - £2500 1 - 7 days
Ukash Ukash £0 - £1000 £0 - £1001 1 - 7 days

Conclusion

Playtech casinos have been around for a long time, and it has to be said the Genting Casino is one of the best Playtech casinos we've encountered, especially since it waives withdrawal limits.

Genting Casino has amassed a very good reputation, but the website design and the time frame on the bonus wagering requirements need to be addressed. The plus points are those live casino options and the massive progressive jackpots offered on some games. Definitely a four-star site that has that fifth star well within reach!
