Grimms Casino Review
You know, we came to kinda respect the casinos that don’t have a “casino” or “bet” keyword in the website name. They have balls, and kinda tell the world that they are going to make a name for themselves without that SEO bullshit. Is it the case with Grimms Casino? Less than 100 games from Eyecon, Cozy Games and other developers, strange withdrawal conditions, weird bonus terms… Not that impressive, right?
Their welcome bonus is not really generous - a 300% bonus up to £120 on your first deposit. But the wagering requirement is not bad (20 times the sum of the deposit and bonus), and the list of banking methods is okay. Besides, these guys also have 24/7 live support.
- License from the UK;
- Mobile friendly;
- 24/7 live chat;
- Mobile compatibility.
- Confusing withdrawal terms;
- Poor selection of games.
Grimms Casino is primarily a bingo website, operated by Cozy Games Management Limited, that also offer a number of slots and casino games to its visitors. It holds licenses from the UK and the Isle of Man Gambling Commissions.
The website looks alright, with a distinctive fairy-tale theme and what looks like a hobbit-hole in the background. The lobby is rather simplistic and awkward to navigate, with no means to search, sort, or filter the games.
Customer Support: The support team works 24/7, and is accessible through the live chat, phone, and email.
Banking: The banking options are few, but include popular payment methods like PayPal, Neteller, and credit cards. Everything seems fine on the surface, however the terms and conditions reveal some really weird shit. We’ll let you explore this bog yourself, here are just a few examples: you can’t make a deposit if your balance is over £250; you can’t withdraw till you make a deposit (at least £5, even though they offer no-deposit bonuses from time to time); weekly withdrawal limit is set to twice the amount of your highest deposit during the last month or £300 (whichever is higher). And if you win a progressive jackpot, you will receive £1000 every week until you get the whole amount of your winning.

Software and Game Variety
Grimms Casino offers games from several software providers - Eyecon, Lightning Box, Cozy Games, and a couple more. We took the trouble to count the games one by one. It didn’t take long - there are currently exactly 86 games at the casino, slots and all, plus several bingo rooms. Here are some of them:
- Slots: Crystal Drop, Pirate Princess, Dog N Roll;
- Casino games: Keno, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild;
- Scratch cards: Go Bananas, Happy Hour, Lucky Fish.
Their main cause - bingo - is represented by several rooms with different themes and rules variations (90-ball, 80-ball, etc.)
Mobile and Live Games
What little they have is fully accessible on modern mobile devices. Just open the website in your mobile browser and you’re good to go.
After all that, do we really have to say that there are no live games? That was kinda obvious, sadly.
Bonuses and Promotions
Grimms Casino offers bonuses on your first three deposits, and this is how they work:
- The first deposit - a 300% bonus up to £120;
- The second deposit - a 150% bonus up to £60;
- The third deposit - a 100% bonus up to £50.
The maximum amount you can win with the bonus is 5 times the bonus amount, up to £500. The wagering requirements are 4 times the sum of your deposit and bonus on Bingo and 20 times on slots. And here is an unusual thing - the terms and conditions say that if you have a Free account balance, it will be reset to match the value of the first deposit (100% up to £20) right when you make it. Such balance is considered to be cash bonus, and its wagering requirements are 8 times on Bingo and 40 times on slots. Sounds weird, but this is how it works - they may offer no-deposit bonuses occasionally, meaning that you may have some bonus cash on your account even before making a deposit. So, until you deposit, your account is considered to be a Free account. For instance, your free account balance is £30, and then you deposit £10, the carried forward balance would be £10.
