Grand Ivy Casino Review

Our Rating of Bonuses at Grand Ivy Casino:

Verdict

Fantastic casino but the bonus will be tough to clear. As we keep reminding you, there is always the chance of getting lucky and breezing through the wagering requirement but make it easier on yourself and choose a casino with a lower wagering multiple.

First Impressions

Grand Ivy strikes us as a unique and inventive casino with a fresh and invigorating approach to casino gaming. Perhaps because it is a relatively new casino, Grand Ivy seems to have a light and airy atmosphere that is a refreshing change of pace from the garishness of many other more established casinos. With its slick and sophisticated website that packs loads of features in without ever feeling too cramped or crowded, the casino is an absolute joy to navigate.

The classy and elegant feel is carried over into most other sections of the site. Clearly a casino that caters to the high rollers, it nevertheless has plenty of games that even those with more modest bankrolls will appreciate.

Theme

The casino’s website has a subtle black, gray, and gold color motif that is classy and soothing to the eyes at the same time. Almost totally absent are the bright neon colors that so many casinos seem to adopt, and we have to say that their omission is a welcome decision. The addition of a tasteful logo with its ivy leaves represented by the spade, club, diamond, and heart symbol is an especially nice touch that really emphasizes the casino’s subtle and classy atmosphere.

Who they are

Grand Ivy is a casino brand owned and operated by Imperium Network Solutions. Launched in 2015, the casino is run on the White Hat Gaming Platform. It is subject to regulation by the UK Gambling Commission and the Curacao eGaming commission.

How to claim the bonuses

Some of the marks of a good casino are how easily bonus information can be obtained and how easily bonuses can actually be claimed. Grand Ivy offers a pretty good range of bonuses in addition to their welcome bonus, with offers such as Weekly Slots Tournament and Slots of the Month providing players with additional chances to win real money and free spins among other perks.

However, the casino could be a little more forthcoming with regard to how players can get their hands on real money bonuses. We had to do a bit of digging around in order to find out that money earned from free spins are actually subject to the same 35x wagering requirements as other bonuses.

Bonus Overview

The welcome bonus offered at Grand Ivy is pretty tempting, and it should be one of the most compelling reasons for most new players to sign up. Even after you take advantage of the generous offer however, the casino offers many other reasons to stay.

For starters, there is the Weekly Slots Tournament, in which a £20 bonus is offered to the top five players of the featured slot game for the week. The bonus is automatically added to the accounts of players that make it into the top five.

Next up, there is a Slots of the Month bonus offer, in which players of a monthly selected slots game will be automatically entered into a draw. Winners will be selected at random every month.

VIP program

Grand Ivy has a VIP program, in which eligibility is determined by earned points. For every £10 wager, players are granted 2 points. Every 1,000 points can be converted into a bonus. New players are automatically granted 500 points with their first deposit, so they only have to earn 500 more in order to receive a bonus.

The casino also runs a Loyalty Points Multiplier offer, in which players get more points for their deposits.

Below you can find the full details of every bonus at this casino, including the detailed rules and important points to be aware of before you deposit or play.

Expected Value

Your assumed deposits is: £100

The bonus you will receive is: £100

The Bonus Plus Deposit needs to be wagered: 35 times

This means you have to wager £7000 to clear this bonus

If you play a slot machine game with a hous e edge of 0.030% you stand to lose £210

Your expected value in trying to clear a bonus of £100 is £-110

(If this value is negative, it means that you are likely to lose money trying to clear the bonus.)

Now remember, this is a statistical outcome that does not take into account variance. In very simple terms, you could get lucky, play through the bonus, and come out positive simply because you are playing a random game with natural variance.

The smaller the EV, the better your chance of playthrough with a positive outcome (because on average you stand to lose less in the first place).

Games and Software

Of all the casinos that we have reviewed, Grand Ivy has one of the most extensive lists of affiliated game developers. Of course, quantity isn't everything, and having dozens of game developers on your team doesn't mean a whole lot if they are substandard developers without extensive track records of quality games.

But Grand Ivy has clearly placed great importance on aligning itself with only the most reputable firms, with the list reading like a “who’s who” of the world of online casino gaming:

  • 1×2 Gaming
  • 2 By 2 Games
  • Amaya
  • Aristocrat
  • Betsoft
  • Elk Studios
  • Ezugi
  • Leander
  • Multicommerce
  • NetEntertainment
  • NYX Gaming/Nextgen Gaming
  • Quickspin
  • Thunder Kick
  • WHG

It’s an impressive list to be sure, and we were pleased to find some promising new upstarts among the bigger, more established firms.

It’s hardly a surprise that the quality of the games is superb all throughout. Fast, responsive, and a joy to play, the games match high-end graphics and sound with some of the most advanced features in casino gaming technology.

As with most casinos, slots make up the bulk of the game lineup. Comprising hundreds of titles, the slots selection includes Cosmic Fortune, Zombie Rush, Big Bad Wolf, Dolly Parton Slot, and Immortal Romance.

The table game selection is highlighted by roulette, blackjack, poker, and more. Roulette comes in a number of interesting variants such as like American roulette and Common Draw roulette.

The blackjack games include Single-deck blackjack and Pontoon, while the poker selection comes in such varieties as 3 Heads Up, Hold’em, Red Dog, Three Card Rummy, Bonus Deuces, Double Bonus Poker, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, and Aces and Faces.

The casino offers a selection of other games as well, including baccarat, craps, scratchcards, and keno.

Progressive jackpots

The progressive games at Grand Ivy Casino are mostly provided by NetEnt. One of the most respected names in casino game development, the company is known for such high stakes jackpot games as Mega Fortune, Mega Joker, Mega Moolah, and Arabian Nights, all of which can be found at Grand Ivy.

Mobile Casino

Devices Supported

Grand Ivy has done a great job in ensuring that players are able to enjoy as satisfactory a playing experience on mobile as they are on a computer. Many of the games available on desktop are available on mobile as well, including a good range of slots from NetEnt, NextGen, Thunderkick, and more.

Because the casino utilizes the HTML5 platform, there is no need to download any special software in order to play on a mobile device. Performance was pretty much flawless on a range of Android and iOS devices we tried, and all the features we enjoyed on a desktop browser were available. And as with all fine online casinos, the full range of bonuses is available for mobile devices as well.

Live Dealer Features

Given the quality of the games on offer at Grand Ivy, we expected the live dealer selection to be no less satisfactory. Our instincts were proven correct, as we found that the casino’s live dealer selection covered a broad selection of games that lived up to the expectations set by the rest of the site.

These are the live dealer games available at Grand Ivy:

  • Blackjack
  • Common-draw blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Automatic roulette
  • VIP roulette
  • Baccarat
  • Keno
  • Lottery

The setting in which the games are presented is elegant and glamorous, with the feel similar to that of being in a luxury casino. Players are also given the option to choose the dealer or croupier they wish to play with.
