If “Genting Group” rings a bell, then it’s undoubtedly due to its highly prominent land-based and online presence. Genting offers over 40 land-based casinos scattered around the UK, a hefty sum for any casino. In other words, it’s pretty much the McDonald’s, KFC, Five Guys (you get the point) of gaming.
There are several online casinos out there with both a virtual and a real-world presence, but Genting goes that step further. It allows online account holders to access certain perks in its land-based casinos. This includes being able to request a withdrawal at a local Genting Casino, meaning you can collect your cash in person.
Much like its real-world offering, the online casino is sophisticated, clean and intuitive to use. Players looking for a diverse gambling experience needn’t look further. All the major game categories are there, and you’ll also come across an extensive sportsbook with competitive odds. Let’s take a closer look.
Here is the Genting Welcome Bonus for new players:
- 1st deposit: 100% bonus up to £100
- After deposit wagered: £5 free
The main issue with this offer is that it comes with a wagering requirement of 20x (on combined total of bonus + deposit). Seriously though, this condition does somewhat lessen the appeal of the bonus. Once you have wagered your deposit, you get £5 free.
Terms and conditions
Here are some other notable terms to keep in mind:
- The welcome bonus is only available to new players,
- A minimum deposit of £20 is required to trigger the bonus,
- The bonus must be accepted within 15 days, and wagering requirements must be met within 40 days,
- The maximum bet per stake or spin is £5 (£10 live casino),
- 20x wagering (on combined deposit and bonus total),
- Game weightings and play restrictions apply,
- £5 bonus awarded after deposit wagered, on selected games only ( 1x wagering, 7 days to accept, 7 to complete, £100 max withdrawal),
- Full T&Cs apply.
To sign up, click on the green “Register Now” icon and a page-long form will pop up. Enter all necessary info, such as username, name, password, postcode and address. You’ll also have to choose a secret question and verify your mobile number.
When we visited, the promotions page wasn’t particularly crammed with offers. That said, the casino does keep returning players happy and engaged through its loyalty and VIP schemes, as well as the constant addition of new games and providers.
Slots and more
The games library has over 500 options to choose from. Here’s what you’ll find:
- Slots: You’ll find all kinds of online slots, from simple classics, to video slots and jackpots. Some eye-catching titles include Dwarf Mine, Fishin’ Frenzy, Jimi Hendrix Online Slot and Guns N’ Roses Video Slots.
- Table Games: This section isn’t as accomplished and could definitely do with some more diversity. Nevertheless, you’ll find a number of Roulette variants, as well as Blackjack, Baccarat and Dream Catcher.
- Live Casino: Any Live Casino fan is bound to be satisfied with the range of options available. Enjoy Roulette, Deal or No Deal, Dream Catcher, Blackjack, Baccarat, Poker and more!
Moreover, something that really makes this virtual platform stand out from its competitors is its success at delivering a flawless mobile experience. The Genting Casino app can be downloaded from the App or Play Store. On this neat, uncluttered user interface, players can find and play a majority of the games available on desktop. Alternatively, if you prefer to avoid downloading, the browser version works seamlessly too!
The following studios are represented in the games library:
Payment & Processing times
When it comes to banking options, Genting doesn’t spoil you. In fact, it does the opposite; you can only deposit using a debit card or by visiting one of the land-based casinos. This means e-wallets, paysafecard, PayPal and more can’t be used. Sorry!
Here’s what’s available:
- Visa Debit
- Visa Electron
As mentioned above, Genting Pay allows players to visit a land-based Genting Casino to make a deposit or withdrawal from their online account.
There are two currencies to choose from: Euro and GBP.
Moreover, the minimum deposit is £10 and players will have to show some form of photographic ID in order to complete the transaction. Withdrawals can also be affected in this way, with a £10 minimum limit also applied.
Withdrawal requests are processed within 24 hours, and transfer times will vary depending on the payment method selected.
A customer support team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are plenty of options if you need to get in touch.
Live chat is probably the preferred method, and players can get in touch at the click of a button.
If you’re more old-school, you can also get in touch via email on support@gentingcasino, or request a callback on the website.
Climbing the VIP ladder
Genting does have a VIP programme called Genting Black, and it’s as luxurious the name suggests! Members are treated to a range of benefits, including.
- Weekly deposit bonuses on a player’s first deposit of the week.
- % cashback on a player’s losses paid twice a month.
- Increased table limits on selected casino games.
There are 4 different VIP tiers available, each with better perks than the last: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond.
So, how do you join? To become a Genting VIP, you’ll have to be invited, which is based on your level of activity. Please gamble responsibly.
If you love the thrill of betting on your favourite sporting events, head over to the Genting sportsbook. You’ll find highly competitive odds, live betting and a numerous amount of sports to choose from. In addition, there’s a constant flow of enticing promotions being added.
With so many new names popping up in the gaming industry, it’s easy to feel slightly disoriented. Having been around for over 50 years, there’s certainly a wealth of knowledge and experience to be appreciated at Genting.
A quick visit to the About Us section will tell you all you need to know about the casino’s history. In 1965, Malaysian entrepreneur Sri Lim Goh Tong founded Genting with the aim to build a spectacular resort. Six years later, his dream came true, and the largest entertainment resort in the world was built on the peak of Mount Ulu Kali, Malaysia. Inspiring stuff!
