Grand Mondial Casino Review
Grand Mondial Casino offers you 150 chances to become an instant MILLIONAIRE for just €10. Are you smart enough to get that? The Mondial guys think that you’re not because the screen-sized banner with this promotion will follow you in every section of the website. As we figured out, a chance to become a millionaire is worth exactly €0,25. The casino offers you 150 quarters, be their guest! Sounds not so generous as the original interpretation. It looks more like something that you’d say to a hobo while giving him some change: here’s your quarter, make it a million!
Anyway, except that annoying banner, there’s nothing that catches the eye. The casino is powered by Microgaming, and features a Live Casino section by Evolution Gaming, so the game variety is alright. The wagering requirements for the Welcome Bonus are 60xB (and the bonus itself is €37.5, how’d you like that?). The only thing that’s good about that bonus is that the requirements could be met relatively easily when compared to other bonuses.
We think this place is "Good Enough", but before rushing to find a Grand Mondial Casino no deposit bonus or something like that, please consider finishing our review so you can make an informed decision about playing here.

Grand Mondial Casino opened its doors for online gamblers in 2005, and back then it was called Grand Monaco. Unfortunately for them, the Principality of Monaco has a rich history of gambling, and the owners were forced to change the name. Currently, it’s a part of the Casino Rewards group and is licensed by Kahnawake and MGA. They are also secured by the industry-standard SSL encryption, keeping all of your sensitive data out of the hands of undesirables. Aside from the usual tax collectors.
The website looks unusual. Right off the bat, you can see a woman smiling and holding a big winnings card. Well, she has a good reason for that. Almost one and a half million good reasons to be exact, since she was one of the people who won a Mega Moolah jackpot in this very casino. We have to admit, it's a plausible thing to put on your home page, but still can't help but find it mildly annoying.
The navigation is awful, because lots of useless information is scattered everywhere, and it creates a feeling that you’re on some cheap advertising landing page and not on a reputable website.
No, it’s not a lottery website or something like that.
Banking: The banking options are alright, you can even find some exotic methods here. They offer credit and debit cards, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz, Check and Bank Transfer for both withdrawals and deposits. The total cashout time is average: all withdrawals are subject to 48-hours pending period and alter that the processing takes 1 to 3 more working days.
Customer Support: They provide a decent support service for players that can be reached via phone, live chat or email. You can also use the free call-back service, but it’s much slower than the other options.
Software and Game Variety
This is a little paradise for Microgaming fans. If you want to play games from other providers - there’s nothing for you to do here. The game variety isn’t really poor - they have all well-known Microgaming titles here, but nowadays you can’t impress customers with 550 games from a single provider.
By the way, it’s one of those few Casino Rewards websites, which is equipped with an instant-play version. It’s laggy, inconvenient, and outdated if you ask us, but hey, it works. Anyway, let’s take a closer look at what can be found here:
- Slots: Avalon, Untamed Giant Panda, Gold Factory;
- Jackpots: Mega Moolah, King Cashalot, Fruit Fiesta;
- Table/Card Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat;
- Video Poker: Joker Poker, Aces & Faces, Jacks or Better.
Grand Mondial Casino Mobile and Live Gaming
Currently, they offer Live Games by Evolution Gaming. Not the worst provider in our opinion. There are all the classic games to play - blackjack, baccarat, roulette, casino poker, all in several variations.
As an extra feat, they are entirely mobile compatible, giving you access to their complete collection from any modern smartphone or tablet device.
Bonuses and Promotions
As for the Welcome Bonus, players will find an incredibly generous 275% match for €10 first deposit. They describe it in a slightly different manner:
150 chances to become an instant MILLIONAIRE for just €10.
Digging through the T&C, we found out that a chance to become a millionaire means that you may bet €0,25 in Mega Moolah. A catchy way to put it. We can only imagine, what these guys could have said about their second deposit 100% match bonus up to €100 with 30x wagering requirements. 800 chances to become a billionaire? Not really, but close to it.
The wagering requirements are 60xB, which is ridiculous, even for such a modest amount. The second deposit bonus is valid for a limited time. Hmm, most Casino Rewards members tend to change their bonuses once per 5-7 years, at best. Interestingly, what do they mean by “for a limited time”? We bet you will be able to claim this for years to come.
