Closing Thoughts

Grand Rio Casino appear to have made a positive start to their online casino career. Their web design could do with some improvement as our reviewer found elements of it difficult to navigate - for example - there is no clear section for their Bonus Terms and Conditions - it is buried in the General Terms and Conditions and users automatically look for a separate section for information such as this. A slight concern arises over the clause which states that for up-to-date bonus wagering and terms customers should contact Customer Support. The team running the site should be ensuring that their wagering and terms for bonuses is always accurate and up-to-date to avoid future player complaints. Further to this it appears that the information on the site is a translation since many of the sentences contain awkward and difficult to engage with phrasing which can make the Terms and Conditions harder to interpret. Finally there is a very irritating large pop-up that appears over anything players happen to be reading sporadically. There is really no need for this - players cannot click through on anything on it anyway so our reviewer could not figure out any good reason for it to be there and said it would actually discourage them from signing up to this casino. Finally - be aware that the Video Poker games at this casino are lumped in beside the slots games and that for bonuses they do have a very different wagering weighting (5%) and this may catch some players out.
