What sort of review?
What is wrong with their own website?
:confused:
I think he means an HONEST and UNBIASED review:D


Grand Bay - part of Grand Prive group.

Normal MG casino, but rather unusual procedure for registering and holding account, get it wrong, and winnings can be confiscated (duplicate accounts).
The mistake is again going through the registration process at another of their casinos, because they use MG "grouping", this creates multiple group accounts, rather than single accounts at two different MG casinos.

Register at ONE skin, and account login is Email address, and NOT a standard MG account number, although behind the scenes, one will be allocated.

Once having registered at ONE of their casino, the same login will work at all 5, and your balance is held in a group purse, so deposit in Grand Bay, and then log into Bella whatsit:p, and your balance deposited into Grand Bay moves with you.
For around 3 months, there can be generous boni, however, these now depend on your tier, the higher the better. Eventually though, they have this nasty habit of dumping you from their bonus list without obvious cause, such as "bonus abuse".
I have now shown it is possible to get back on the list, but it takes time (took me 15 months).

Promos are SUPPOSEDLY the best on the net, but this is NOT so, as some Jackpot Factory promos offer more than theirs. Grand Prive promos with large prizes tend to run for a couple of months, so the prizes do not look so great then.

Withdrawals are fast, with a 6 hour pending period. Photo ID and utility bill required for first withdrawal (usually, didn't ask me though).

NASTY(ish) terms - 3

1) Between claiming bonuses, a minimum of 20 credits must be deposited into the group casinos.

2) Deposits must be wagered 1x before bonus is credited.

3) The "F U Clause"

DO NOT PLAY IN UK POUNDS UNLESS RESIDENT IN THE UK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Use Euros for EU residents, and US Dollars if you cannot find your home currency on offer.

Failure to abide by these could get a player dropped from the promo list. I do not know if they would confiscate anything though except for the circumstances in 3) above, usually "wrong currency" where Pounds have been used to milk the sign up bonus, although it seems invite only for UK Pound accounts.

Grand Prive can be as arrogant and unapproachable as Casino Rewards when they "have it in" for a particular player.

If they drop you from their promo list, do not fall for the old Casino Rewards trick where they expect you to deposit buckets of cash to PERHAPS get back on it.

Best strategy is to log in occasionally, and take one spin just to prevent your account becoming inactive. They also have MPV tournaments in Grand Bay, with a free one on Tuesdays and Thursdays (not really "free" though, it has the usual continues), where prizes depend on tier level.

The only thing to add to VWM's most excellent overview... do a search (located at the top of the forum) for "casino grand bay", "jupiter", "bella vegas", "grand prive", etc., for player experiences.

What it boils down to at this group is: if you have no problems while playing there, you'll have no problems. :D

Bella Vegas

I received a new player "$50 Gift Check" for Bella Vegas but I'm having trouble finding T&C for it. The email only states "no deposit, no obligation" and Bella's website does not specifically address it. Anyone else take this bonus?
