Established in 1965, Genting Casino is part of Malaysia’s internationally renowned Genting group of companies. It arrived in the UK in 2006 and can boast more than 40 land-based casinos in the UK alone, making it one of the country’s largest casino operators. Its online casino facility is now a thriving part of the brand.

What does it offer?

New customers are offered a 100% bonus of $1,250 (£1,000) when they join up, whilst regular customers can enjoy weekly deals. Genting’s Lucky 7 Roulette, which takes place every Wednesday and Friday, offers $12.50 (£10) to lucky customers every time a red number 7 drops, whilst a Blackjack Mystery Card bonus every Monday and Thursday sees 15 mystery cards hidden in the decks; between $12.50 (£10) and $125 (£100) can be won here.

Why should you join?

Regular customers have the chance to earn ‘Genting Points’, which start accumulating, win or lose, as soon as the individual has successfully signed up. The amount of points the customer gains depends on the games they play; the points can then be converted in to real cash and used across Genting’s entire array of games. A useful chart is available to show points per game. Beware though – there is a six-month time limit attached to the points, so if they are not used within that period they will expire (if that doesn’t keep you playing then we don’t know what will).

The Genting live casino experience is one of the best around, offering a real-time experience hosted by live dealers in high definition. Its jackpots are not to be sniffed at either, regularly exceeding $1.25 million (£1 million) – on occasion the total jackpot has reached $6.25 million (£5 million). Customers can also sign up for special treatment too with Genting’s ViP programme, which offers many unique and lucrative rewards.

Sports betting

Genting offers a wide variety of sports betting to its customers, including comprehensive football betting on worldwide leagues, championships and friendly matches.

Football fans can enjoy the comfort of a $12.50 (£10) first bet insurance, which gives them the freedom of a free bet if their first settled bet doesn’t win. Also on offer is the Football Multiple insurance deal, which gives money back if one team lets down the accumalator.

Live scoreboards with up-to-the-second scores and stats, and an iphone app that allows on-the-go betting, help to give those keen sports bettors a guaranteed world-class experience.

Similarly, horse racing fans are offered a $12.50 (£10) risk-free bet on races around the UK and Ireland and guaranteed odds. And if sport with a more ‘international’ flavour is what takes your fancy, then Genting has that too. For example, in the recent US Super Bowl the company offered fans a £1 free spin for every touch down that was successfully made.
