The all new Grand Ivy Casino has been making waves so thought we’d drop in and give it the once over.

Immediately taken by Grand Ivy Casino’s classy black and gold interface and simple tabs across the top and along the side of the page we immediately raced to the bottom of the screen to see the brand is regulated by the UK Gaming Commission.

Given less reason to be sceptical, reassured even, we took the plunge to register a new account. This simple procedure – asking for no more than name, address, date-of-birth, email address, contact phone number, and to invent a username and password – led to an automatic 25 free spins on the Jimi Hendrix online slot being awarded.

That’s just one of the 236 slots, including nine with progressive jackpots, we counted under Grand Ivy’s ‘Slots’ tab which lists them in order of ‘most popular’, ‘most recent’, ‘A-to-Z’ and even ‘provider’ depending on your preference.

That provider list shows 14 different software companies used by Grand Ivy Casino with ‘NetEnt’ providing almost half of them. What’s really neat about all of the slots is the ability to play them for fun/free.

But this is an online casino, not just an online slots arcade and therein the 14 variants of Blackjack, 15 types of Roulette and 25 other table games – Baccarat, Craps, Casino Hold’em, Punto Banco et-al – means all the essential online casino bells and whistles are in place.

There are two more optional boxes which have been ticked, the first being ‘live casino’.  Now, while this section of Grand Ivy’ site does offer 11 tables, it appears to be their weakest link.  Of the 11 games offered, two tables were not working: Live Keno and Live Lottery.

Furthermore the live casino lacks any ambiance or atmosphere.  The dealers are of course real but they act somewhat robotic and the background is generated by green-screen animation.

But Grand Ivy Casino’s 14 ‘fun games’ featuring Scratch Cards and Keno do add to its appeal and an additional ten ‘virtual games’ complete the portfolio.  Once again all of these can be played for fun with free funds.

Talking of funds, Grand Ivy Casino list a dozen payment and withdrawal methods including Visa, Mastercard, PaySafe, Skrill and Bank Wire.  If you have any issues with payments it is good to know the site is supported by a 24/7 Live Chat option – something we tested at 10pm on a Sunday night and was pleasantly pleased to be helped by a representative within 45 seconds.

Grand Ivy Casino can be played on mobile Apple and Android devices through the web-browser and regardless of how and where you play, there are great promotions and incentives on offer for both new and existing customers.
