You may already be familiar with Grosvenor as one of the biggest casino operators in the world. They have a presence both online and in the physical world and have worked hard to become one of the most respected players in this sector.
Their sportsbook arm is much more recent, having first gone online in 2016 but it’s already attracting interest for all the right reasons. Here, then, is a round-up of what you can look forward to if you are considering a new account.
Here are the sports that you can bet on at Grosvenor as of September 2017:
Football, Horse Racing, Tennis, Snooker, Darts, Golf, Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Basketball, American Football, Boxing, UFC & MMA, Aussie Rules Football, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Chess, Cycling, Floorball, Greyhounds, Handball, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Netball, Pesapallo, Surfing, Trotting, Volleyball, Water Polo, Winter Sports, WWE and Yachting.
That’s a very diverse list and one that includes all of the popular events plus some very useful niches. At opposite ends of the scale, regular punters will be pleased to see horse racing included while Grosvenor are one of the best bookies who offering markets for WWE wrestling.
Politics, eSports and entertainment markets are also provided for those who like to look away from the traditional areas of sports betting so this is a comprehensive list.
Despite their huge name in the industry Grosvenor, like all other new sportsbooks, will need to wait before the big odds comparison sites pick them up. To test this operator fully you will need to monitor them over time but we’ve looked at a selection of punts and the odds for each of these looked particularly strong.
Football will be a competitive area as it should be but no matter what you like to bet on, you should find good value right across the Grosvenor Sportsbook.
New customers to the Grosvenor sportsbook can claim a welcome offer which will double the odds on any winning first bet. After a quick registration process and initial deposit, new account holders can pick a bet from anywhere on the sportsbook and stake up to £10.00 on the outcome.
If that bet wins, Grosvenor will simply double the odds and therefore increase any profit by 100%. Please check all of the terms and conditions relating to this deal but it’s a very quick and simple way to get your account off and running.
At present there are no ongoing offers for existing customers but hopefully that will change in the future.
Banking and Customer Service
One of the advantages of placing your sportsbook account with an established casino operator will usually lie in the list of funding options. Typically these are very extensive and the fact that Grosvenor can offer Paypal is a real plus.
In addition, you can also deposit to or withdraw from your account with Skrill, Neteller and paysafecard while the operator will naturally accept all of the major debit and credit cards.
Customer service options are a little restricted to be completely honest and it would be good to see a live chat operator included in the future. Grosvenor do show a telephone number on their home page and it’s free to call for anyone based in the UK and there are some FAQs and a dedicated email address.
The help here has proved to be fast, friendly and effective but the options are a little tricky to find and the live chat would be a welcome addition.
It’s a positive review overall and certainly if you are a regular bettor in the most popular markets then you will find a good home here at the Grosvenor sportsbook. The value comes, in the main, from excellent prices in those markets and it’s a great place to be if you intend to stick around for the long term.
The welcome offer at double odds on your first bet could still prove to be a lucrative one but the lack of any regular promos as of September 2017 could be improved upon. In general, Grosvenor is for the serious punter but in truth this is a good place to play for anyone.
