Grosvenor Casino Thanet

Grosvenor Casino Thanet is situated at Westwood Cross Shopping Centre on a retail park that also includes a Frankie and Benny's and a Toby Carvery, as well as a popular Travel Lodge. First impressions are good on entering the casino. It has a bright, open reception area, and you won’t need to walk far to play on the slots, as there are 7 machines lying in wait just around the corner. On the right hand side lies a small seated area with 6 television screens, showing a variety of television channels including Sky Sports. On the left, there are several other slot machines, and the pit in the middle of the casino represents the main games floor with an open door that leads to a separate poker room.

Venture further into the casino and you’ll discover a beautiful bar and restaurant area. Grosvenor Casino Thanet is an attractive venue overall with a nice range of games to play with a few themed nights throughout the week, such as Slot Breakfast Club (where you receive a free coffee and muffin) and Ladies Night (which includes a three-course meal, glass of bubbly and a £5 gaming voucher for a little under £15).

Loyalty Program

Grosvenor Casinos operate a Play Points program for their members, whereby you pick up points as you place down bets. The more points you earn, the better gifts you’ll be able to claim from the Play Points catalogue. Given how many Grosvenor Casinos there are dotted around the UK, it’s a membership scheme that’s certainly worth signing up for – especially given how it takes just a few moments to register.

Food and Drink

There’s usually a good vibe and lively atmosphere in the bar and restaurant areas of Grosvenor Casino Thanet – helped in part by the smart architectural design of the venue. Pretty much the entire casino is open plan with just enough of a barrier between the dining/drinking areas and the games floor. This ensures that an energetic atmosphere simmers throughout the venue without it being overbearing or too rowdy. The food is good and there’s a nice range of dishes from which to choose.
