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 Microgaming only, so you shouldn’t expect any mind-blowing variety. There is not even a single live game among their 550-title game library, by the way. The wagering requirements for the Welcome Bonus are 60x the bonus (and the bonus itself is €27.5, how’d you like that?). The only thing that’s good about that bonus is that it’s too small, and the requirements could be met relatively easily when compared to other bonuses.
- Solid Microgaming software;
- Wide variety of phone support numbers;
- Passed eCOGRA’s fairness test;
- Decent amount of withdrawal options.
- No live games;
- Only one game developer;
- 60xB wagering requirement on the first deposit bonus;
- Miserable welcome bonus amount.
Grand Mondial Casino opened its doors for online gamblers in 2005, and back then it was called Grand Monaco. Unfortunately for the casino, the Principality of Monaco has a rich history of gambling, and the casino owners were forced to change the name to Grand Mondial. Currently, it’s a part of the Casino Rewards group and is licensed by Kahnawake. 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. No, it’s not a lottery website or something like that. The navigation is awful, because of the annoying promotion banner that follows you everywhere. 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 cashout time is worse than average: all withdrawals are subject to 96-hours pending period.
Customer Support: Grand Mondial Casino provides a decent support service 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 other options.
Software and Game Variety
This casino 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. 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.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Currently, Grand Mondial Casino does not offer any live casino options. We don’t know why, but we’re sure that it’s a significant drawback for anyone who likes live gaming.
However, 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, Grand Mondial Casino offers an incredibly generous 275% match for €10 first deposit. They describe it in a slightly different manner:
Grand Mondial Casino offers you 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’ll bet €0,25 in Mega Moolah. Isn’t it beautiful? 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 for the welcome bonus are 60x the bonus, which is ridiculous, even for such a tiny 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 that bonus no less than 3 years more.
