With a name like PlayGrand, you can be fairly confident coming in as to what exactly this site is going to be about.
In essence, there are two themes when it comes to casino sites. Although there is a lot of variation on both sides, basically sites are either focused on the idea of fun and entertainment, or based on the concept of affluence and elegance. With a name like PlayGrand, you can probably guess what side of the fence this site falls on.
Founded in 2014, PlayGrand has developed a strong reputation over its few years in the industry, mainly due to their player first mentality and excellent reputation for customer service.
The one complaint that there has always been when it comes to PlayGrand, something they have still not rectified, is the lack of withdrawal options available, but in the grand scheme, the response to this site is, for the most part, positive.
The question that is then raised is, is that enough? In a market as competitive as the online casino industry is, is having more ticks in the positive column than in the negative column sufficient for success, or will you still lose out to sites that do less wrong than you do?
Design and theme
When you get a site that has the concept that PlayGrand has, which is far from unique, there are certain expectations when it comes to how that site is likely to look. The first, is that it will definitely have a black and gold colour scheme, because it seems like all of them do.
This is the first point that PlayGrand surprises you, because it doesn’t. Instead the colour scheme here is black, white, and pink. There are still the token chandeliers and other images representing affluence, so it’s not like PlayGrand is taking this theme until an entirely new direction, but it’s nice to see that something is different here, even if it isn’t much.
It is the done thing these days for a site to have a variety of thumbnails on the homepage that allow players one click access to the most popular games on the site. At PlayGrand, these thumbnails link to the collection of jackpot slots available, which is a nice touch, and an impressive way to carry the concept through in another unique manner.
When you break it down, PlayGrand essentially has the same feel that other sites with this concept do, but they have at least taken the time to think up ways to stand out, which actually makes a difference, although that probably says more about PlayGrand’s competitors than it does about the site itself.
Another bad habit that sites like PlayGrand normally have, is that they aim for software developers that have high profile slots, but that’s about it. This leaves players short of choices, and means that there is a plethora of other sites that offer the same titles, and many more.
PlayGrand does not fall into this trap however, instead offering a selection of games from the biggest and most popular names in the industry, as well as a few lesser known providers, the full list includes 1X2gaming, Amaya, Aristocrat Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, ELK Studios, Ezugi, Felt, Greentube Slovakia, Leander Games, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, Quickspin, Thunderkick, and White Hat Gaming.
This means that whether you are after new slots, old slots, table and card games, or a place to play live casino titles, you will find what you are looking for at PlayGrand.
This concept is overdone because it’s popular, so if you’re the best at it, you should enjoy success, and PlayGrand might just be the best at it.
