About The Rank Group plc

Rank is one of the great names in British entertainment. Since 1937, we’ve stayed true to our founding mission – to excite and to entertain.

Today, our brands include Grosvenor Casinos, Mecca Bingo, and Enracha, with licensed venues that bring people together for fun and laughter in more than 100 communities. And our digital-only brands bring all that good stuff to our players at home and on the move.

Our long experience brings with it a sense of responsibility. Rather than just reacting to changes in the law, we want to help guide the gaming industry forward so that everyone can enjoy themselves safely. That’s why we take great care to inform our customers about every aspect of our games.

We also feel a sense of responsibility to the planet. We’re inspiring our people through environmental, social and governance initiatives that will take us to where we want to be as a business. And we include the communities in which we operate in everything we do. That’s where we started and where we belong still – at the heart of the community.
