How’s it going, dawg? This is your boy Derick coming at you with another online casino review. On this fine day, we are going to take a look at Grande Vegas Casino. Grande Vegas is probably one of the oldest casinos I’ve ever reviewed on this website. Honestly, it’s kind of cool to see how older gambling sites have evolved over the years and more importantly how well they can keep up with the modern online casinos.

So, can Grande Vegas keep up with the rest of the online gambling industry? Honestly, not really, dawg. Grande Vegas is simply a relic of the past, holding hard on it’s traditions and trying to ignore how the industry has evolved. When they absolutely have no choice but to innovate, the way they do it seems more like a crutch than an actual upgrade. Anyway, you’ll see what I mean when we get down to the actual review.

Casino Review Details

Grande Vegas came out all the way in 2009 making it a pretty well-established casino at this point. Back in its day, this online casino won several awards for being one of the best online casinos out there. However, that was back then. Now that it’s more than 10 years later after it first came out, Grande Vegas has a lot more competition.

This online casino is owned and operated by Galactic Affiliate Co. LTD. and is licensed by the Government of Curacao. The website is protected by SSL encryption so no need to worry there but, we do need to worry about other things.

The first thing you should be very worried about is how the actual website looks. Dawg, one look at this website, and the first thing that comes to mind is: old. You have categories on the top, left, and the registration and login on the right but when you come to the games themselves is where the cracks start to show. When browsing the online casino games, all you’ll get is a few sliders that you can move from left to right, showing only four games each time. Fortunately, this has been remedied … kind of, more on that later.

The website does have a VIP club, tournaments, and several payment methods that should suit most players. One of the biggest problems with Grande Vegas is its complete lack of any live casino games. However, one of the biggest strengths is that it is available to USA players. Unfortunately, this also means that the website has to meet the demands to follow USA online gambling laws.

Ho boy! So much to talk about, so let’s get right to it, dawg.

Country Restrictions

Firstly, let’s get the country restrictions out of the way. USA is in but UK is out along with just a handful of other countries. Here’s the full list of restricted countries at Grande Vegas Online Casino:

  • India, Greece, Poland, Russia, United Kingdom, Romania, Bulgaria, Mauritius, Portugal, Indonesia, Costa Rica, and Thailand.

Grande Vegas Casino Bonuses

Grande Vegas offers several bonuses to its players which include a welcome bonus, a reload bonus, cashback promotions, raffles, and tournaments. Now, dawg, when it comes to USA casinos, they tend to have fewer games but better bonuses so things would balance each other out, right? Well, not really. Grande Vegas has only USA-approved game providers and has the audacity to have high wagering requirements on all of its bonuses. Namely, each of these suckers will have a 30x(deposit+bonus) wagering, which just sucks.

Welcome Bonus

Players from the USA can enjoy a 150% match bonus in bonus money. Players from anywhere else will have to settle with a $25 welcome special. Each of these will require a bonus code and each of these has the same wagering requirements.

EXCLUSIVE BONUSES

Alright, dawg, despite what I might think of Grande Vegas Casino, they did provide us with some exclusive bonuses which your boy Derrick will be more than happy to share with you. We’re looking at two no deposit bonuses and an exclusive match bonus. All you have to do is enter our exclusive codes and you’ll be good to go.

This is a welcome bonus for everyone outside the USA. With the $25 free welcome special you can literally play whatever you want without any restrictions. It’s almost like a free bonus, however, if you do manage to meet the wagering and actually turn this into real money, you’ll still have to make an actual deposit in order to withdraw your $25. Honestly, just treat this like an over-glorified demo mode, dawg

  • $25 free welcome special
  • Minimum deposit: none
  • Wagering requirements: 30x(bonus+deposit)
  • Bonus code: TESTGV

Other Bonuses

There are a few other bonuses that we should mention. Firstly, there’s a monthly reload bonus that’s the same as the USA welcome bonus. Next, there’s a cashback bonus that’s available on every single deposit made. Slot tournaments happen from time to time and can offer some neat rewards. There are also comp points that players can earn as they are wagering real funds. Finally, there are raffles that happen twice a week that players enter automatically.

$300 Quickie Boost

This is literally the same as the USA only welcome bonus. The only two differences are that it’s not exclusive to USA players this time and that all players can get this bonus once a month.

  • 150% (up to $300)
  • Minimum deposit: $25
  • Wagering requirements: 30x(bonus+deposit)
  • Bonus code: QUICKIE-BOOST

Grande Monday and Midweek Raffle

All players that make real money deposits at Grande Vegas are automatically entered into the Grande Raffle. There is a raffle happening on Monday and one happening on Wednesday. Players who participate in the raffle can earn “mystery bonuses” worth up to $500. The casino is kind of vague about the prizes but seeing how you these are free bonuses, I think this is a nice little additional bonus, dawg.

Cashback on all Deposits

Here’s a nice little bonus. No matter what your VIP status is or how much you spend, you will automatically receive a cashback amount for every single deposit you make (not counting those that trigged other bonuses).

To get this bonus, your balance has to be between $0 and $5 and each cashback amount you receive will have to be wagered 10 times. The maximum amount you can receive is $300. Overall, a pretty good cashback promotion.

VIP Program

Right, dawg, let’s take a look at the mess that is the Grande Vegas VIP. Firstly, credit where it’s due, these guys actually tell you exactly what you have to do in order to become a VIP.
So, there’s just one VIP level that brings you all the usual crap we’ve come to expect from VIP programs: Higher deposit bonuses, more comp points, Higher wagering limits, a one-time bonus of $100 of bonus funds, and more.

Now, in order to become a VIP, you have to accumulate 5,000 VIP points in 3 months. VIP points are the same thing as comp points and to get a single comp point, you’ll need to wager $10 in real money. Anyway, this means that you’ll need $50,000 to become a VIP but you’ll only have 90 days to do so.

AFTER you become a VIP, you’ll have to maintain your spending habit, meaning, you’ll have to accumulate another 5,000 VIP points in order to keep your VIP status, however, this time you’ll only get 30 days. Sure, you’ll earn more VIP points as a VIP, but to your boy Derrick, this doesn’t sound like such a sweet deal, dawg.

Online Casino Free Spins

So many bonuses, tournaments, and stuff. And yet, not a single free spin bonus in sight. It may be because the games available at Grande Casino weren’t actually made to support free spin promotions, or it could be that Grande Vegas casino simply doesn’t like free spins. Whatever the case, if you want free spins, you ain’t getting them here, dawg.

Slots

Time to talk about “all the games” at Grande Vegas Casino. By “All games” I’m talking about the 150 games (give or take a few) available. Now, before you start laughing at the casino’s small library of games, let your boy Derrick remind you that the reason for this is that the casino is available to USA players. USA players have it rough when it comes to online gambling laws and only a few providers are qualified to make games for them.

Anyways, from this entire library, you’ve got slots, table games, specialty games, some video poker (european slot poker, double bonus poker, pai gow poker, etc.) and … that’s about it. Are we missing something? Oh yeah: Live casino games. Grande Vegas has none of them and THAT I CANNOT FORGIVE. No, USA laws have nothing to do with this because there are USA-approved live casino game providers, this is simply a choice made by Grande Vegas, and a bad one at that.

Also, remember that crutch I mentioned earlier in the casino review. Because the website is so old, the games won’t actually work from the “main” casino site. Instead, you’ll have to download a PC app play version of the casino OR go to Grande Vegas’s instant play casino (which is a separate website) in order to actually play the games without downloading them.

The only software providers available at Grande Vegas are: Real Time Gaming and VIG.

Slots

So, Real Time Gaming are the only providers who’s slots you can play at Grande Vegas casino. I always say that their slot games aren’t bad at all but they really start to feel the same when that’s all you can play. I can’t believe I’m saying this but: “Where’s my Book of Dead”? Anyway, you’ve got an assortment of classic online slots and some jackpot games and that’s about it. There’s about 100 of them, so enjoy.

Table Games

Seeing how you ain’t going to play many live casino games, this is the closest you can get to scratching your live casino games itch. You can play blackjack, roulette, video poker, baccarat, and various other types of card games. All of these are non-live games too. For some reason, they also have a “Specialy games” category where some of the table games are so don’t panic if you can’t find them right away, dawg.

Jackpot Games

Some of the slots available in the “Slots” categories are also jackpots but players can find them specifically by navigating to the “progressives” category. There’s about 11 of these are, fortunately, most of them will have a visible jackpot available underneath their icons. Not a lot but not too bad either.

Live Casino Games

Vivo Gaming is a live casino software provider that’s available to USA players. They are basically what Evolution Gaming is to the rest of the world. This means that if a USA casino library doesn’t have Vivo gaming, they pretty much don’t have any live casino games at all. That’s exactly the case with Grande Vegas. They didn’t want to work with Vivo Gaming and because of that, they don’t have any live casino games at all.

This is a HUGE con for the entire casino. I mean, I’d almost accept if they didn’t have any regular table games, but not having a live casino library in 2021 will earn you a one-way ticket to the bottom of the list of online casinos, dawg. All the casinos have a live dealer games category, get with the times Grande Vegas!

RealTime Gaming

Mobile Casino

The Grande Vegas mobile casino works, but that’s about all I can say about the entire casino. Naturally, you’ll only be able to access the Instant Play version of the website on your phone and it does work, barely. It’s nothing game-breaking but a lot of small issues like lag and crashes prevent it from being truly great. Honestly, I’m not surprised, dawg. The website barely works on the PC so it’s no wonder this is the case with the mobile casino.

Grande Vegas Casino Payment Methods

deposit methods

withdrawal methods

Well, things are looking a little bit better when it comes to payment methods. I was half expecting to only have bank transfer as a payment method but Grande Vegas managed to pleasantly surprise me. Not only do they offer credit cards, a few e-wallets but they even offer players to deposit in Bitcoin.

Deposit Methods

  • Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Wire Transfer, Moneybookers, ecoPayz, Paysafecard, Transfer Money, and Bitcoin.
  • Minimum deposit: $25

Withdrawal Methods

  • Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Wire Transfer, Moneybookers, ecoPayz, Paysafecard, Transfer Money, and Bitcoin.
  • Minimum withdrawal amount: $100
  • Maximum withdrawal amount: $10,000 per week

Accepted Currencies

Grande Vegas casino only accepts USD and BTC as currencies.

Customer Support

Being an older online casino, Grande Vegas is rocking a long and well-explained FAQ page. Fortunately, they did realize that it wouldn’t be enough in this day and age so they also included email support. Fortunately again, they realized that even that wouldn’t be enough and finally they have the 24/7 live chat support. It’s a good thing too because a lot of things on the website weren’t clear to your boy Derrick so I had to contact them several times to check.

I’m happy to say that unlike some parts of the website, their live chat customer support works really well. They were quick to respond, friendly, and did actually manage to help me out.

KYC

If you want to withdraw funds from the casino, you first need to verify your casino account. Now, before you can get to the actual withdrawal, you’ll have to provide some documentation via email to the Grande Vegas customer service. These include:

  • Front and back copies of your Photo ID (document should be government-issued, valid, includes the full name, signature, and picture of the holder) – e.g. Passport, Driver’s License.
  • Proof of address document, issued to you in the last 3 months (e.g. Utility bill, Bank statement).
  • (only if you deposit with a card) Front and back copies of all the cards used to fund the account (sensitive parts may be blocked out).
  • (only if you want to withdraw with Bitcoin) A photo of your face with your ID next to it.

Available Languages

Grande Vegas casino is only available in plain old English.

Grande Vegas Casino Review Summary

For the lack of better wording, Grande Vegas is OLD. The casino is trying hard to keep up with the modern online casino market without actually doing anything worthwhile. I get that they want to be available to USA players, which is great, but they could have done a better job. If this online casino doesn’t want to be left in the dust, they will have to add live casino games, offer better bonuses, and add more VIP benefits. A few more payment methods wouldn’t hurt either.

10 years ago, I would have recommended this casino but in its current state, I cannot say that Grande Vegas is worth your time and money. As always, we got you, Bro!

Despite being rough trade, Derrick prefers to use sarcasm over fists because the parts of Atlanta he grew up in still consider it witchcraft. A.k.a. The Buff Dude, he’s a sucker for roulette, a total video game geek, and a beast when it comes to online casino security. We mainly hired him because he is scary AF but don’t tell him we said that.
