Sites like VIP Bet
VIP Bet sister sites 2023
Spinz Casino might not look like it’s one of the best of the VIP Bet sister sites, but give it more than a cursory inspection, and you’ll see that it’s a casino site with hidden depths. Yes, it may have the same layout as Dice Den and a couple of the other Grace Media casinos, but pay close attention to the list of menu options that runs horizontally across the middle of the Spinz Casino homepage. You’ll see that there’s an option there for live casino games. That’s not something you’ll find at the smallest casinos on the range. Spinz Casino might be “compact,” but it has just as much to offer as VIP Bet when it comes to games.
Where Spinz Casino struggles to compete with the other VIP Bet sister sites is with the promotions that it offers. The best it can do for new players is to refund a proportion of any losses they make from their first deposit – and at ten per cent, it’s not an especially big proportion. Nobody joins a casino with the thought of what they might like to receive back if they lose, so it starts things off on the wrong foot. There’s a free spins package that can be chosen instead, but it’s not an especially big one.
Dice Den is kitted out with what you might consider the “default look” of the VIP Bet sister sites. It’s clearly generated from a template, and it’s not particularly impressive to look at. It is, however, perfectly functional. You’ll mostly find the same games at Dice Den as you will at Spinz Casino, although if you were paying attention a moment ago, you’ll know that there isn’t a live casino here. There are a few table game simulators, but Dice Den is almost entirely based on providing online slots. That makes a mockery of the name “Dice Den,” but it is what it is.
What Dice Den lacks in live casino games or variety, it makes up for with its welcome promotion. You’ll find welcome bonuses as good as the one at Dice Den at the other VIP Bet sister sites, but you won’t find one that’s better. Depending on how much you’re willing or able to spend when you make your first three deposits at Dice Den, you could score up to £500 in bonus money and get 150 free spins as part of the deal. The wagering requirements at Grace Media casinos are OK, so it’s a decent offer.
Jackpot Mobile Casino is an outlier among the VIP Bet sister site when it comes to the way the casino looks and the market it was designed to serve. It’s a hangover from the old days of iGaming when providers and operators couldn’t rely on the fact that the websites and games they designed would work as well on tablets or mobile phones as they did on computers. Back then, it was necessary to develop mobile-specific versions of both in order to serve customers. Those days are gone, but some of the casinos that were designed to serve that niche need still exist.
While Jackpot Mobile Casino’s unique selling point is now a distant speck in the rear-view mirror, the casino is kitted out with the same welcome promotion as Dice Den. You’ll recall us saying that it’s the best you’ll find among the VIP Bet sister sites. There’s a downside to Jackpot Mobile Casino’s stripped-down approach, though, and it’s that the welcome bonus is the only bonus that’s currently available. That won’t matter to everybody because promotions aren’t everything, but if bonuses are a big part of what draws you to a casino, this might not be one for you.
Mayfair Casino is one of the biggest and most prestigious real-world casino venues in London. When you go to the real Mayfair Casino, it’s a night you plan well in advance and get dressed up for. This is its official online presence. There are a couple of officially licensed casinos among the VIP Bet sister sites, but none mean as much in the world as casinos as the Mayfair name does. It’s become a byword for “glamour.” It is, therefore, both surprising and disappointing to find that the official Mayfair Casino site looks like something that was thrown together ten years ago and then forgotten.
The dated design of Mayfair Casino isn’t necessarily Grace Media’s fault. Like most of the VIP Bet sister sites, it used to belong to another casino network before being acquired and transferred to Grace Media. The operator is still responsible for the casino as it exists today, though, and the fact remains that it could and should have given it a redesign that befits its status by now. We hope it’s on Grace Media’s “to-do” list for the year ahead because the brand practically demands it. Picking a focus between being an online casino or promoting the real-world venue would help, too.
Casino Roo is supposed to have an Australian theme. You might wonder why we’re stating the obvious, given that the casino is called “Roo” and has a kangaroo in its logo, but try visiting the Casino Roo homepage. If you can see any sign of an Australian theme there, you’re doing a better job than us. Instead of using Aussie cliches, Casino Roo seems more intent on chasing the same audience as VIP Bet. If you’re looking for VIP Bet sister sites – which we presume you are because you wouldn’t have found our website otherwise – Casino Roo is the closest match.
We’ll give Casino Roo high marks for presentation – it’s genuinely a stunning, glamorous casino website – but we have to mark it down in other areas. We especially have to mark it down for its promotions. The casino has the same cashback-driven welcome promotion as Spinz Casino. We didn’t like it when we were talking about Spinz Casino, and we still don’t like it now. If Casino Roo wants to appeal to the clientele that it’s clearly trying to attract, it will likely have to put a little more meat on the proverbial bone.

VIP Bet operator – Grace Media (Gibraltar) Limited
Grace Media Limited can be thought of as a “disruptor.” It’s only been involved in the iGaming market for a few years, but it’s already created shockwaves. That was the intention of the operator’s owners and directors when they came together to form Grace Media in 2019, bringing together a collective forty years of casino industry experience and choosing Manchester as a base. They’re not UK-based any longer, though. It took Grace Media a couple of years to realise that running an iGaming company in the UK wasn’t the most cost-effective way of doing things. When realisation dawned, the company followed in the footsteps of a great many casino operators that have left the UK by opening a new head office in Gibraltar. The company’s full name became Grace Media (Gibraltar) Limited as part of the relaunch, and a new UK Gambling Commission licence was acquired. The changes are largely window dressing, though – the day-to-day side of the business is still largely run from Manchester.
From day one, Grace Media hasn’t done what most casino operators do. Instead of endlessly making and launching new casino and betting sites, Grace Media picks them up from elsewhere. Nektan and ElectraWorks – two former casino operators that have gone to the wall in recent years – proved to be rich hunting ground for Grace Media, which picked up the best of their former casino sites. VIP Bet itself was once a Nektan casino. As well as being opportunistic, Grace Media has a ruthless streak. Casinos that flounder don’t last long on this network – more than eighty have been closed since the company took ownership of them, reducing the number of active casinos on the roster from north of 120 to around 40.

VIP Bet Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
It’s clear from the way VIP Bet is designed and the style and quality of the graphics on its homepage that it’s trying to attract players with deep pockets. That makes the VIP Bet welcome promotion a little perplexing. Rather than offering the big matched deposits that are a hallmark of several of the VIP Bet sister sites, this casino deals in cashback. Specifically, it will award cashback on lost first deposits at a rate of ten per cent, up to a maximum of £200. If you don’t like the sound of that, there’s a fairly bland free spins bonus you can take instead. Neither of the offers screams “top-class casino.”
To justify the “VIP” tag, VIP Bet would need to have attractive loyalty works and big promotions to reward players for sticking around and spending money at the casino. It doesn’t have that. Beyond the welcome promotion, the other bonuses at VIP Bet are small and seasonal. They’ll be chopped and changed every few weeks, but in our experience, they’re always allocations of free spins that can be unlocked for deposits of a certain value. At the time of our visit, players could unlock twenty free spins on one of a few animal-themed Megaways slots for a £10 deposit. That’s not going to do much for players who deposit hundreds or even thousands at a time.
Top Games at VIP Bet
VIP Bet is served by most of the best game providers in the iGaming industry, which is true of all the VIP Bets sister sites, too. It seems to be especially fond of Pragmatic Play slots, though, and even more fond of newer ones. The top slots game featured on the VIP Bet homepage at the time of our visit was John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin, which is the latest instalment in the provider’s long-running Indiana Jones-inspired “John Hunter” franchise. Wolf Gold – arguably the most popular game Pragmatic Play has ever produced – is also in a prominent space on the VIP Bet homepage. Even games that Pragmatic Play didn’t make, like Bigger Bass Bonanza and Buffalo King Megaways, are advertised as being attached to the provider’s “Drops and Wins” bonuses.
Customer Support and Licensing
There’s a clickable chat button in view at all times at the VIP Bet website, but you can also get access to the chat service – which claims to be available at all times – through the “support” link. As an alternative, players can send SMS messages to the support team on 07883305686. As with all Grace Media Limited casinos, VIP Bet is bound by the terms and conditions of UK Gambling Commission licence 57869. The operator has not found itself on the wrong end of the regulator’s wrath thus far, so the licence is clean.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
VIP Bet can process withdrawals to any verified, UK-issued Mastercard or Visa debit card. It can also handle PayPal or MuchBetter e-wallets. The third route is Trustly’s banking service. No matter what you choose, though, withdrawals are slow. At least two working days are required for transfer of funds, but you may find yourself waiting for a full five working days. Nothing can be done to speed the process up.
Final Thoughts on VIP Bet
VIP Bet would be fine if it marketed itself some other way, but it claims to be a “VIP” casino. It doesn’t meet that mark. Its promotions aren’t superior to the VIP Bet sister sites. It doesn’t offer enhanced customer service, faster withdrawals, or anything else that might give it an edge over the other casinos on the platform. It’s a fine casino, but it doesn’t offer luxury.
