Crockfords casino summary

By Simon Ho

Crockfords has an established ’bricks & mortar’ heritage as a land based casino in the UK since 1828 and is part of the Stanley Leisure group.

This casino is aimed towards the experienced players, who aren’t going to shy away from 5 minimum bets at Blackjack and will reward the serious players with generous VIP rebates and prizes. Crockfords also currently fund the prizes for their tournaments.

Love: VIP rebates - French Roulette

Hate: Average software

Promotions rated 7 - Crockfords casino

’Cash Wins’
New users get a match bonus of up to 100 on their first deposit by emailing a claim. The bonus carries a wagering requirement of 30x the bonus (3,000 for the 100 bonus).

Existing customers can also get a monthly bonus of 10 when they deposit 20 or more (not available in the same month a new player signs up).

’VIP’ benefits
Like many casinos Crockfords run loyalty schemes of 0.1-0.5% rebates on wagers placed (depending on the game). In most cases these aren’t particularly useful, they are aimed to towards high rollers, which is what Crockfords is all about, high rollers who deposit 2k+ and wager 20k+ weekly can qualify for VIP rebates on losses of between 5-17.5%. Not as good as some of the rebate schemes on offer from the US casinos but the only UK casino we’re aware of that runs such a scheme. If you feel you should qualify for VIP status forward them an email to vip@stanleycasinos.com.

’French Roulette’
The software used by Crockfords closely resembles Cryptologic software although the graphics are not quite as good. Only 8 Games in total, which includes the essentials, Blackjack (European & Atlantic City), Stud Poker, Video Poker. Of particular note is French Roulette where half of the player’s even money bets are returned when the zero is spinned in (halving the house advantage to 1.35%). Players can also place racetrack bets on the Roulette table.

’What’s your limit’
One of the most notable aspects of Crockfords’ casino is how each game has several table limits. With minimum wagers of 5 (per hand) at Blackjack this will put off casual gamblers, but the high rollers will be happy to know the table limits go up to 1,000 on Blackjack & Stud Poker and up to 4,000 on Roulette.
