Grosvenor Casinos is a leading operator of casinos.

The business is headquartered in Maidenhead, England and operates casinos in Great Britain under the Grosvenor brand. It also operates two casinos in Belgium.

Industry overview

Casinos in Great Britain offer a variety of traditional games of chance in a safe, social and highly regulated environment. Customers must be 18 years or older in order to play in a casino.

Staking levels are not capped (with the exception of electronic gaming machines) and are determined by the casino.

Under current legislation, the following activities may be offered under a 1968 Act casino licence in Great Britain: casino table games (including American roulette, blackjack, stud poker, punto banco, sic-bo and dice); electronic casino games (predominantly electronic roulette), gaming machines and card room games (including player-to-player poker and mah-jong). In addition, casinos typically include licensed bars and restaurants.

In Britain, due partly to restrictions on electronic gaming machines, the majority of casino revenue is generated by casino table games and their electronic equivalents.
