Genting International is the parent company of Genting Stanley, the UK’s largest casino operator, and stated that the launch of CircusCasino.com was a logical and important strategic step in extending the product range for its British customer base.

“Being the UK’s biggest land-based casino operator, it is important for us to meet all the needs of our customers including the growing demand to be able to play online from the comfort of their homes,” said Justin Tan, Managing Director for Genting International.
“It is a significant opportunity for us to leverage the heritage, expertise and reputation of our group brands.”
CircusCasino.com will offer a range of over 100 casino, card and table games including roulette, blackjack, pontoon, baccarat, craps and slots along with various cash poker games and tournaments. In addition, players from around the world will be able to take part in play for fun games while only those from the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands will be able to deposit funds and play actual real money games.
“At Genting Stanley, we have been able to provide our players with a great night out combining food, entertainment and gaming at any one of our 44 casinos,” said Peter Brooks, Executive Deputy Chairman for Genting Stanley.
“Now CircusCasino.com can offer players, in the comfort of their own home, a great night in. It’s all about choice and our research shows that a growing number of players want this from a brand that they know they can trust.”
