Apart from these pokies, Lucky 31 offers both a live and regular online casino. The regular section includes most popular table games.

LIVE CASINO

Despite being a smaller website Lucky 31 has a pretty decent live casino section. Here the players get to choose from 8 roulette tables, 5 blackjack tables and 4 baccarat tables. In addition to this there are a few rare live game on offer. These include a Wheel of Fortune game, dice, lucky 5 and ultimate Texas hold'em.

OTHER SERVICES

While Lucky 31 does offer a live chat line it is not 24/7. Instead, this is only accessible between the hours of 11.00am to 00.00 CET. Any messages left for their staff in off hours will be saved and answered later. They also come with an email address for contact and a separate complaints line service.

Lucky 31 does not offer phone contact.

The help section for Lucky 31 comes in the form of an FAQ. This covers most of the basics and seems to be quite well designed and helpful. The topics covered includes deposits, withdrawals, document information, technical help and general questions.

They also offer a short responsible gaming section which comes with helpful links and details how a player might place limits on their account.

Lucky 31 Design and Usability

What really comes to mind when you take a look at Lucky 31 is simplicity. The website design uses a basic red, white and black scheme which fits together rather well. This is a website which tries to avoid the clutter which is often so popular on major gambling websites. By doing so they have created a website which is simple to navigate and easy on the eyes. Your appreciation of this really comes down to whether you prefer form or function. I'm a big function guy, so the design really works for me. Unfortunately some of this good-will is taken because of the usability.

When it comes to usability Lucky 31 isn't especially bad, by any means, its just a little slow. While navigation is simple there can be a bit of waiting as you click around the site. A bit of a letdown considering how you would expect such a simple website to run quickly. That said, everything does load, so reliability does not seem to be an issue.

MOBILE APPS

While Lucky 31 does not offer anything in the way of an actual app it does run just fine on most mobile devices. This is because it runs on HTML5, which most devices can work with without issue. The main site is slightly modified when accessing it from a mobile device. This helps the site run better and lets it only offer the types of games which work with mobile devices.

  • Compatible Systems

The app offered by Lucky 31 works on the following main systems: Apple iOS version 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows Phone version 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above. Alternatively it should work on most systems capable of running HTML5.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registration for Lucky 31 is done with a simple single page form. Once this is done you have access to the site and the only thing left is a deposit.

  • Current Promotions

Reload Friday

The same offer as Reload Wednesday, but on Friday. Who'd have guessed?

Our Experience and General Reviews

Lucky 31 has been one of the more enjoyable websites to review, based purely on its simplicity. Getting lost isn't a real concern to many of us old-dogs on the internet, but being strung around by poor or bloated design is. Lucky 31 does not lead you around pointlessly, and I love that.

General reviews of Lucky 31 run medium to high, at around 3.3/5 to 9/10.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Comparing this website to others we can see a few main areas of differences and similarities. When it comes to pokie selection, Lucky 31 is great. In fact, because of its use of multiple software systems, Lucky 31 comes out ahead of much of the competition when it comes to sheer variety. This is also true when it comes to live games, with Lucky 31 punching well above its weight.

In table games Lucky 31 covers most of the main bases, though it does stumble a bit here.

Other points of contention are its comparatively slow loading speed, though its basic design, in my mind, helps make up for this.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus about Lucky 31 seems to be that it offers great slots and live games, but doesn't do so well when it comes to variety in other games.

Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it a 9.1/10, while casinoz.club rates it at a low 5.2/10, with rightcasino.com giving it an 75% and thebigfreechiplist.com giving it a 6.8/10%.

SOCIAL MEDIA

 

A bit of a letdown here when it comes to social media. Lucky 31 has no decenable Twitter page, and its Facebook page has a mere 191 followers. Despite having only a few followers for this page Lucky 31 remains quite active, with the latest update being less than a week before the writing of this article.Lucky 31 Facebook

Our Rating

Great in terms of pokies and live games, good in some table game and not great when it comes to other variety. The website itself is nice to look at, though this is hampered by the slow response time. Bonuses are fairly average, though they do keep them up to date. This is a website which gives me the feeling that they don't have a lot of staff, though what staff they do have are doing their best. Not bad a casino site, by any means, and definitely one I'll keep my eyes on.

3.8/5 stars

This casino holds its license with the Malta Gaming Authority.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The owners of this Casino, Glimmer Ltd, own a total of four casinos. Aside from Freaky Vegas these are Klaver Casino, Vegas Wonder Casino and Portomaso Casino.

Their business is registered at Level 1, Portomaso Business Towers, St. Julian's PTM 01 Malta.

GENERAL OPERATION

This is an exclusively online casino which offers two main forms of access to the user. The first is the standard desktop site which will be accessed by desktop and laptop system. The second is the mobile version which is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry devices, and will generally work with many products which support HTML5.

Forms of Deposit

Freaky Vegas accepts the following forms of deposit: Bank Transfer, MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Skrill, Visa and iDEAL.

Languages Supported

Freaky Vegas offers its website in the following languages: English, Finnish and Swedish.

GAMES COVERED

As is common with gambling websites, Freaky Vegas comes with a focus on pokies. There are hundreds of different pokie games available here. These are split over regular, jackpot, featured and more.

Other than these pokies, Freaky Vegas also focuses on roulette and blackjack, while also offering a selection of live games.

Freaky Vegas Main Game Page

The main Freaky Vegas games page.

LIVE CASINO

Freaky Vegas comes with a total of 8 live games. I initially thought that there might be an enormous amount, based on the page 1/9 at the bottom of the live games page, but this turned out to be a simple design fault.

Included in the live games are 5 roulette tables, two blackjack tables and 1 puntobanco table.

OTHER SERVICES

While Freaky Vegas does offer a live chat line it is not 24/7. Instead, this is only accessible between the hours of 9.00 to 23.00 CET. Any messages left for their staff in off hours will be saved and answered later. They also come with an email address for contact.

Freaky Vegas does not offer phone contact.

The help section for Freaky Vegas comes in the form of an FAQ. This is a rather simple section though it does cover all of the basics.

They also offer a great responsible gaming section which has all sort of helpful links, information and limits for the benefit of the player. This is a section which really gives you an indication into how much they care about their customers, so great work, Freaky Vegas!

Freaky Vegas Design and Usability

I can't say I really understand the whole theme of Freaky Vegas, but I don't need to. The website works with oranges, cremes and whites, all of which work well together. The whole layout is a little bit cartoonish in terms of both font and images though these do not clash, so it's a nice fit.

When it comes to usability, Freaky Vegas mostly works well. Everything runs well and responds quickly, with the only real problems coming from some annoying little issues showing their head. As mentioned above in the live games section, sometimes when you switch between games pages the page counter will glitch out, leading you think there are a different quantity of games than there actually are. This is really just if a pain if you, like me, were excited to see the apparently massive amount of live games, only to be let down when there turned out to be 1 page of them, rather than however many pages were on the last section you exited.

MOBILE APPS

While Freaky Vegas does not offer anything in the way of an actual app it does run just fine on most mobile devices. This is because it runs on HTML5, which most devices can work with without issue. The main site is slightly modified when accessing it from a mobile device. This helps the site run better and only offer the types of games which work with mobile devices.

Compatible Systems

The app offered by Freaky Vegas works on the following main systems: Apple iOS version 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows Phone version 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above. Alternatively it should work on most systems capable of running HTML5.

HOW TO REGISTER

Freaky Vegas registration is performed in three steps. The first is done by simply entering your email, username and password.

Freaky Vegas Registration 1

The first page of the Freaky Vegas registration form.Freaky Vegas Registration 2

The second step of registering for Freaky Vegas. Following this page, the entered mobile number will be used to send a confirmation number. This number will then have to be entered in the main website to enable the account.

CASHING OUT

Withdrawal methods and times

Freaky Vegas offers the following forms of withdrawal: Bank Transfer, Neteller, Skrill and Visa.

The fastest of these methods are through E-Wallets, with withdrawal time being around 24 hours, with credit/debit card withdrawal being around 2-3 days and bank transfers being 5-7 days. These are all on top of a 6-12 hour pending time. Cheques are not available from Freaky Vegas as a form of withdrawal. The withdrawal limit for Freaky Vegas sits at 5000 per week.

The wagering requirement of Freaky Vegas sits at 30x.

BONUSES

As is common with gambling website bonuses, these are cut into two different forms. These are as follows:

  • Welcome bonuses

On Freaky Vegas the player is given bonuses on the first four deposits.

First Deposit: The first deposit gives a 100% bonus up to 200. This also comes with 100 free spins which are given out at 20 per day for 5 days.

Second Deposit: The second deposit gives a 50% bonus up to 200. This also comes with 100 free spins which are given out at 20 per day for 5 days.

Third Deposit: The third deposit gives a 25% bonus up to 200. This also comes with 100 free spins which are given out at 20 per day for 7 days.

Forth Deposit: The forth deposit gives a bonus of 25% up to 200. This also comes with 160 free spins which are given out at 20 per day for 8 days.

Players are also given 10 free spins simply by signing up to the website.

  • Current Promotions

There are currently three other promotions running on Freaky Vegas, these are as follows:

Monday Mania

If €25 or more is deposited on Monday then the player will be given 5 free spins each day until Sunday. These are added at 15.00 CET and are only valid for 24 hours.

Birthday Bonus

For this bonus a player needs to contact the staff to let them know they have a birthday coming up. Obviously this will only work if the staff have valid identification. The actual gift can be free spins, free cash or a ‘great deposit bonus'. This has to be set up at least a day before the players actual birthday, so don't leave it to the last minute.

VIP Club

The VIP section for Freaky Vegas is accessed by simply depositing money and playing games. As more games are player the more VIP points they will gain. These eventually pay out in the way of bonus spins and special offers.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My experience with Freaky Vegas has been mostly positive one, with the only real issues coming from the problem with the page listings. Other than that, everything went very smoothly.

General reviews of Freaky Vegas run mid to high, with most rating it at 8/10 or higher.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Freaky Vegas is a website which excels in some places, and not in others. The pokie selection is great and the live casino is solid, but the website lacks some of the popular table games which no gambling should really be without.

The website itself is quite fast and responsive, which is great, though there are issues on accuracy which still need to be addressed.

When it comes to bonuses and wagering requirements, Freaky Vegas does well, especially with welcome bonuses.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

The general consensus on Freaky Vegas is that it is great at what it wants to do, but can be sorely lacking in some key areas.

Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it a 8.8/10, with casinomagazino.com rating it at 3.8/5, mojobonus.com giving it an 8.5/10 and thebigfreechiplist.com giving it a 7.5/10%.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Freaky Vegas does not have a large or active social media presence, though they at least seem to be making an attempt. Lot's of room for improvement here.

Freaky Vegas Facebook

Their Facebook page which has a mere 180 followers.

Freaky Vegas Twitter

Their Twitter page which has 260 followers and was last updated almost two months prior to writing this review.

Our Rating

Freaky Vegas is a website which seems to have targeted a very specific group of games. While they do very well at the game they do include some of the missing games are a bit baffling.

None-the-less, if you love pokies and fast websites then this one is definitely worth a look. Lots of variety on offer, and the welcome bonuses don't hurt either.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The owners of this Casino, Casumo Services Limited Casinos, own only this one casino.

Their business is registered at Unicorn Centre, Triq l-Uqija, Swieqi, SWQ 2335, Malta.

GENERAL OPERATION

This is an exclusively online casino which offers a variety of forms of access to the user. In addition to the standard online webpage access, Casumo also offers a mobile version which is accessed by simple visiting the main site. This mobile version is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry devices, and will generally work with many products which support HTML5.

  • Languages Supported

Casumo offers its website in the following languages: English, Finnish, German, Norwegian and Swedish.

GAMES COVERED

Casumo covers such a wide variety of game software it is only natural that they have a lot to offer. The focus here is pokies, with hundreds available. Casumo also offers large selection of other games. This includes roulette, poker, blackjack, hold'em and baccarat. Casumo also offers a total of 34 jackpot games.

Casumo Main Game Page

The live casino for Casumo currently covers a total of 6 games. This include roulette, baccarat, blackjack 2 forms of hole'em and an additional table which switches between roulette and blackjack.

OTHER SERVICES

Casumo offers a 24/7 live-chat services for the users benefit. They also offer an email address which is always open to inquiries.

Casumo does not offer phone contact.

Casumo's FAQ section does well to cover the basics. Here the questions are separated into account, payments, withdrawals, bonus, technical, adventure, challenges, tournaments, licenses and play okay. This final section is dedicated to problem gambling and comes with help links and budget tools.

Casumo Design and Usability

Casumo is a bit odd when it comes to design. The main page of the site can be almost empty, with just a few links to navigate. This is a bit of a double edged sword. While this helps avoid clutter I can't help but feel better use of the space might help with efficiency. What really stands out is the whole theme behind the design. This design offered by Casumo operates as a sort of game within a game. While you play games the site has you go on an ‘adventure'.  What this effectively boils down to is a fun little system of bonuses and rewards. The system isn't especially complex but it does really add an entire dimension to online gambling which is extremely rare.

When it comes to usability, Casumo works well. The website is fast to respond and works with the sparse layout. Clicking around this site and having a look around is faster than pretty much any site out there, which is really fantastic. Most navigation is performed simply through the four main buttons to the left of the page. One gives casino information, another user information, one works with currency and the other button is the game browser. No confusion here, and that is great.

MOBILE APPS

While Casumo does not offer anything in the way of an actual app it does run just fine on most mobile devices. This is because it runs on HTML5, which most devices can work with without issue. The main site is slightly modified when accessing it from a mobile device. This helps the site run better and only offer the types of games which work with mobile devices.

  • Compatible Systems

The app offered by Casumo  works on the following main systems: Apple iOS version 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows Phone version 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above. Alternatively it should work on most systems capable of running HTML5.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registering for Casumo is a simple 3 step process with no email or phone verification required.

Casumo Signup Form 1

On the first step the user need only enter their email address.

Casumo Signup Form 2

The second step prompts the user for both a username and password.

Casumo Signup Form 3

The third and final step prompts the user to enter more personal and locational information.

The fastest of these methods are through E-Wallets, with withdrawal time being around 0-24 hours, with credit/debit card withdrawal being around 1-3 days and bank transfers being 2-3 days. These are all on top of a 24 hour pending time. Cheques are not available from Casumo as a form of withdrawal. There is no withdrawal limit for Casumo.

The wagering requirement of Casumo sits at 25-30x, meeting these requirements is performed at the following rates:

  • Casino Hold'em and Oasis

    When money is won through these games 10% will contribute towards the WR.

When money is won through these game 0% will contribute towards the WR.

  • All other games

When money is won through all other games 100% of money won will contribute towards WR.

BONUSES

As is standard with gambling website bonuses, these are cut into two different forms. These are as follows:

  • Welcome bonuses

On Casumo the player is given bonuses on the first five deposits.

First Deposit: The first deposit gives a 200% bonus up to €50. After this deposit the player will also be gifted 200 free spins on selected games. These will be given out at a rate of 20 per day for each day which the player logs in to Casumo. These only occur for the first 9 straight days.

Second Deposit: The second deposit gives a 50% bonus up to €150.

Third Deposit: The third deposit gives a 50% bonus up to €200.

  • Current Promotions

There are two main ways in which a player at Casumo can earn additional bonuses. The first is by signing up to their newsletter, which will have them sent directly to the player's email. The second is by simply playing. As a user plays their character levels up and the player can be given random gifts. These usually come in the form of free-spins for selected games.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My experience with Casumo has been a positive one. The site itself runs well and is simple to figure out and not a single part of the site refused to work for me.

General reviews of Casumo are extremely high, with most rating it at 8/10 or higher.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Casumo is a difficult casino to compare to other, because it is so trendsetting. When it comes to standard games and pokies in particular this site holds its place well. It does suffer a bit in terms of live games, though it does offer some.

The wagering requirements are somewhere on the mid to low end, and their bonuses are fairly standard. The help section is great, though the lack of telephone contact options may be frustrating for some.

The real comparison here comes down to what the site wants to do with its whole adventure system. The idea of playing a character playing these games is an interesting one, and is a concept which Casumo has obviously put a lot of thought and effort into. Exactly how much a person will care for this is very subjective, but if you're open to it then it can be great.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus about Casumo seems to be that it is both unique and of high quality.

Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it a 8.3/10, while other sites are more generous with casino.org rating it at 9.2/10,  rightcasino.com giving it an 86% and casinolstings.com giving it a 9/10%.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Casumo doesn't have the largest social media presence, but they still have a nice chunk carved out for themselves.

Casumo Facebook Page

The Facebook page has just over 8,500 followers and is very active in both creating content and responding to messages.

Casumo Twitter Page

Their Twitter page is slightly less popular but still somewhat active. Here they have just shy of 6,000 followers and last posted a month before this review was written.

Our Rating

A difficult site to rate due to how different it can be. Generally speaking the selection of games is great, as it the layout. What it comes down to is whether or not you as the user appeciate the whole adventure theme they have going on. If you like that sort of extra layer then you might love it. On the other hand, if you are a player who simply wishes to play without having to worry about these distractions then it might be not quite to your tastes.

4.4/5 stars

Bet 365 holds two licenses with the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The founder Denise Coates is the daughter of Peter Coates, a successful English business and current Chairman of the Stoke City Football Club. Denise gained experience in the world of gambling from working in her father’s bookmaking firm, Provincial Racing, which she then extrapolated and built upon into the world of online betting.

The Bet365 business itself was started from a loan Denise had taken from the Royal Bank of Scotland against the already existing Coates betting business, which was later sold off to pay back the entirety of the loan.

Bet365 has a registered location of Unit 1.1, First Floor, Watersport Place, 2 Europort Avenue, Gibraltar.

GENERAL OPERATION

The casino operates entirely through its online system, which can be separated into the sports betting and casino services. The site allows betting on both major and minor racing tacks all over the world, including hound and horse racing in the UK, Australia, Ireland and the United States.

They also offer an online phone app for both Apple and Android devices that can be used to place bets on racing or access the poker room, casino and bingo hall.

Bet365 offers the following forms of deposit: Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Ukash, Visa, Entropay, Skrill, Fast Bank Transfer, GiroPay, iDebit, Online Bank Transfer, PayPal, Skrill 1-Tap and Visa Debit.

GAMES COVERED

Games offered by Bet365 are numerous and far outweigh almost all other gaming sites. With this comes the usual selection of casino games. These include pokies, card games, table games, keno and bingo. Also included are a multitude of live dealers.

What really impresses is the sheer amount of sport betting on offer by Bet365. Race betting covers both minor and major races of hounds and horses in Australia, UK, US, and Ireland. Other betting services are offered for many other sports including, but not limited to, Australian Rules, Badminton, Basketball, Baseball, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, E-Sports, Golf, Hockey, Motor Racing, Pool, Poker, Soccer, Tennis and Volleyball.

OTHER SERVICES

Bet365 comes with a robust FAQ to help with any basic questions the user might have regarding games, accounts or technical issues, in addition to a variety of other help services. These include a live 24/7 chat line, a telephone call line, 24/7 email support and even the ability to communicate by post.

The large number of support staff on call also means that problems or queries are responded too far faster than those of many other online betting services, and in many cases these response times rival what could be reasonably expected from a larger physical betting business.

Their customer support service is well suited to foreign language speakers, with support offered in 17 major languages.

Bet 365 also offers a section on problem gambling. This section covers advice, deposit limits, reality checks, time-out and self-exclusion.

Great all-around.

Bet365 Casino Design and Usability

The website itself has definite roots in older forms of webpages when it comes to display and usability, and this is absolutely a positive thing. No huge, annoying and bandwidth sucked pop-ups or video advertisements slow down the experience.

This, combined with a simple to use layout with large buttons and easy follow instructions means less time wasted finding your way around and waiting for pages to load and more time spent betting. This is especially a boon for mobile devices without access to the app, as it won’t burn through your data cap like some sites will.

This gives the impression of being born out of necessity, as the sheer quantity of games and information offered requires a concise layout/

LIVE CASINO

Bet365 has a lot to offer in the way of an online live casino. At any given time there are upwards of six dealers operating over live video feed to give you that in-casino experience from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you choose to game from.

The games offered live are Hi-Lo, Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Hold Em, and Sic Bo. This is a service offered 24-7, with the games staying active while the women who deal (and they are all women) operate in shifts.

These games are separated into both European and Asian dealers, as per customer preference.

MOBILE APPS

The mobile app operates in much the same way as the main site, with obvious changes built in to accommodate the smaller screen and more limited rates of data transmission available to mobile devices. These can be ignored if not applicable to each user.

These can be accessed using a shared account from the main site and are available for both Android and Apple systems. To find these apps you can search on the Google Play or Apple App Store, depending on your device. Note that while these apps are extremely helpful they are not strictly necessary, as the main site can also be accessed by most standard mobile devices.

The app offered by Bet365 works on the following main systems: Apple iOS version 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows Phone version 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above. You should also be sure to be running the most up-to-date version of browser software.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registering for an account on for Bet365 requires only a short visit to their website and the filling out of a single page form.

The first section of the Bet365 registration form

And the second half.

CASHING OUT

Bet365 offers the following forms of withdrawal: Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, Maestro, Neteller, Ukash, Visa, Entropay, Skrill, Fast Bank Transfer, iDebit, PayPal, Skrill 1-Tap and Visa Debit.

The fastest of these methods are through E-Wallets, with time being around 0-24 hours, with credit/debit card withdrawal being around 1-3 days, bank transfers being 2-10 and Cheques taking 5-28 days. These are all on top of a 0-24 hour pending time.

There is no withdrawal limit for Bet365 Casino.

Wagering requirements for sport games sit at 3x deposit plus bonus, while the casino wagering requirement sits at a lot 20x deposit plus bonus.

BONUSES

The first bonus on offer is a 100% bonus on the first deposit, up to $200. This is not offered to players residing in Russia, South Korea and Taiwan.

Their other running bonus at this time is a $1,000,000 Slots Giveaway. For this promotion prize tickets are given out for every $12 places on qualifying games, with some games offering double tickets. On certain dates over the next moth there are draws in which cash prizes draw from the million dollar total prize pool.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My personal experience was one of initial frustration, with the signup form not working on one my browsers. Once this issue was resolved I was nothing but impressed by the offerings, speed and simplistic design of Bet365.

User reviews for this casino have been overwhelming positive. Users praise the speed and convenience of the website and the app, saying that the amount of popularity and money that go into the organization is evident from their quick turnaround times and quality service. In fact, many of the online reviews place Bet365 at the very top of its field, with very few reliable detractors.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Given the popularity and success of Bet365 it almost feels unfair to give it direct comparisons to other sites. The revenue gained by its position of one of if not the most popular allows it a level of customer support and constant additions, fixes and modifications that are simply not financially viable to smaller businesses.

The sports betting section is especially impressive, as is the low wagering requirements. These, in our opinion, easily make up for the low level of bonuses.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus on the various online rating boards cover much of what has been indicated in this article, that Bet365 is one of the best available, with trusted staff and high standards of operation.

Betshoot.com has it at 4.5/5 stars, the usually very critical askgamblers.com has it at 8/10 and bettingexpert.com has it at 5/5 stars.

SOCIAL MEDIA

As such a major and profitable business, Bet365 maintains a large and active social media presence on the major social media platforms. Their Facebook page has over 700,000 likes and posts updates almost daily, with their Twitter page having over 347,000 followers.

The Bet365 Facebook page

The very active Facebook page for  Bet365.

The Bet365 Twitter page

And the equally active and followed Twitter page.

Our Rating

Quality seems to be the name of the game with Bet365, owned and operated by those who care about the things that matter to their customers, and it shows. Their extra services sit among the best, as do low wagering requirements and games on offer. Fantastic for casino and sports bets alike.

4.8/5 Stars.

Thrills Casino Review, Helpful Information and Bonuses

Thrills Casino

General Information

Established by Betit Operation Ltd Casinos in 2013, Thrills Casino is an online casino with a focus on pokies and video poker, though they also boast a huge variety in other games. One of the most astounding features of this relatively new site is the massive live casino, which at the time of writing this article had a total of 38 active rooms.

Thrills Casino employs the use of several popular and powerful gaming software tools, including Ash Gaming, Betsoft, Play’N’Go, NextGen Gaming, Microgaming and NetEnt Playtech services.

Thrills Casino is also notable for a large amount of restricted countries, with the full list as follows: Afghanistan, Algeria, American Samoa, Antarctica, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Comoros, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Faroe Islands, France, French Guiana, French Polynesia, French Southern Territories, Greenland, Guadalupe, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Martinique, Mayotte, Myanmar [Burma], New Caledonia, Northern Mariana Islands, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Réunion, Saint Barthéley, Saint Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Svalbard and Jan Mayen, Syria, Turkey, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, United States, Wallis and Futuna, Yemen and the Aland Islands.

They current hold licenses with the Malta Gaming Authority, Curacao eGaming and the UK Gambling Commission.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The group behind Thrills Casino also operates two other popular online casinos, the Kaboo Casino and the SuperLenny Casino.

Their business is registered in Central North Business Centre, Level 5 Fawwara Lane Sliema SLM 1670, Malta.

GENERAL OPERATION

Thrills Casino operates entirely online, which is split into both regular and app play for mobile devices. This is another website that claims that the main website can be still be accessed and played through a mobile device, but use of the app is recommended in these situations in order to maximize efficiency and reduce unnecessary data usage.

Thrills Casino accepts the following forms of deposit: MasterCard, Neteller, Visa, Skrill, Paysafe Card, Ukash and Instant bank transfer.

This casino is currently available in five languages, English, Deutsch, Svenska, Finnish and Norsk.

GAMES COVERED

Having access to such a wide range of powerful software means the Thrills Casino has a fantastic choice of games available. These range from multiple forms of the classics such as baccarat, roulette and poker to an enormous offering of both classic and video pokies. Thrills even runs seasonal events, with an entire section being dedicated to Christmas themed games at the time of writing.

The game layout of Thrills Casino

Just a few of the games on offer from Thrills Casino, and the general page layout.

OTHER SERVICES

Thrills Casino includes a live chat, though this only runs between 10:00 and 24:00 CET, with questions outside of this timeframe being created as messages from the main site which are then sent as emails to the staff to respond to during working hours.

They also have a small section detailing where you can get help if you suffer from issues relating to problem gambling, though they don’t any software solutions of limits and self-imposed bans that some other sites offer.

Thrills Casino Design and Usability

The design of this site is based around a simple blue and white color scheme, with a lot of effort and attention being put into the flash powered frames and site navigation buttons. While this means a simple and easy to follow layout it also means that access might be problematic for those running on older software and hardware, and especially with those running the main site through a mobile device, or those with overzealous ad-blockers.

Provided you have a relatively up-to-date or even just middling setup this should be an issue, as despite the reliance on keeping things modern the site still runs well, and loads quickly.

LIVE CASINO

As mentioned, the live casino on Thrills Casino is an impressive offering, with 38 active tables being available at the time of writing. These tend towards attractive, young female dealers and are split across a variety of popular games.

Included in the live casino are: 2 forms of hold’em (Casino and Ultimate Texas style), 22 blackjack tables (including blackjack party and multiple VIP tables), 8 roulette tables (including French, London, and Svensk targeted tables), 4 baccarat tables and 2 poker tables (three card and Caribbean Stud).

MOBILE APPS

Unlike most online casinos that offer apps, Thrills Casino does not appear to link their app from their webpage, though there is one available. To find this app you are required to search the Google Play or iTunes store, depending on your device.

In order to use that app on Android devices you require Android version 6.0 or higher, with the iOS version also requiring at least the 6.0 firmware.

In addition to this there are claims on other websites that the main site itself runs perfectly well on a mobile device, though whether or not this is true depends on the power of your own device and how well you can tolerate the size scaling which occurs when running desktop websites on mobile devices.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registration can be accessed from the main page of the site, with a prompt dropping down from the top of the page. Please note that some forms of adblocking software can interfere with these dropdown frames, so if it doesn’t appear for you try adding their website to your whitelist.

The registration form itself is split into the two sections below, with no email verification required.

The first of the two Thrills Casino registration forms

The first form includes basic account information.

The second of the two registration forms for Thrills Casino

The second form includes more personal and location information.

CASHING OUT

Thrills Casino offers the following forms of withdrawal: Neteller, Visa, Skrill and Instant Bank Transfer, this selection isn’t quite as up to snuff as other gaming sites, but they do appear to be as reliable in these withdrawals as anyone else.

The shortest withdrawal times for these funds is between 0-24 hours for EWallets, with the longest withdrawals sitting at between 2 and 5 days for bank transfers, credit and debit cards. This is on top of the pending time of 0-24 hours.

One thing that really sets out Thrills Casino from the rest is that they offer a max daily withdrawal limit of £50,000, far above what most sites offer, and these limits are extended further for VIP players.

BONUSES

Starting with an unusually large bonus deposit of €1,500 (double what you put in) for your first deposit, with a minimum deposit €100 required for activation. They also offer five free spins on one of their top slot machines each day for the first four days of membership.

The second and third deposits customers make offer a 50% bonus of up to €600, with the forth offering a 100% bonus up to €200.

From here the site offers an additional Bonus-O-Meter that charges as you play real money games, with multiple levels unlocking which give you a variety of free slot spins. There are even hidden bonuses within games which give a boost to this meter.

Our Experience and General Reviews

In my time with Thrills Casino I have to say that I am impressed with what is on offer. The sheer volume of games on display, especially slot games, is among the best, and this is something that online reviews tend to agree on.

What they also tend to agree on is that customer support times can be longer than anticipated when not within operating hours. While this is to be expected with a website without 24 hour support there are those who claim that this left them with a bad taste in their mouths, though many others claim that since these complaints the issue has been assuaged.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Thrills Casino offers a lot in the way of games, and there are few that can meet the sheer quantity, especially when it comes to slot games. By utilizing some of the most popular and powerful software on the market they can deliver many of the popular games offered by the larger sites, and even some more that they don’t.

The only area where this casino fails in comparison to other casinos is its customer support service, which may suffer due to not being as staffed as it could be but, as was mentioned earlier, this appears to be an issue which Thrills Casino is aware of and is making moves to patch.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus on Thrills Casino paints the site as trustworthy, prolific in terms of offered games, and fair when it comes to payout.

With older complaints regarding customer support now being addressed the only real complains left seem to be regarding that it can be difficult to qualify for the bonus payouts, though this is a complaint that is common to most online gaming services.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Thrills casino does not offer the largest online presence of online gambling organizations, but there are much larger sites that do much worse. While their Twitter account is all but dead, not having been updated since 2014, their Facebook account is still quite active and updating, with staff detailing promotions, game winners and upcoming events.
The Facebook page for Thrills Casino

The more active of their social media accounts is on Facebook.

The twitter page for Thrills Casino

The twitter side is far less active, and could be considered dead at this point.

Our Rating

Thrills Casino appears by all accounts be a casino that knows what it wants to do, and does it well. While its site does seem lacking in some key information it also runs well, and loads quickly. Combine this with an enormous game selection, staff who are genuinely concerned with improving their service and an interesting system of rewards and you have a site that fights well, though could do with some improvements. Definitely worthy of a look, especially for those interested in slots and live dealers

3.5/5 stars.

Casino Land Review, Helpful Information and Bonuses

Casino Land

General Information

Established in 2015, Casino Land is a relative newcomers to the world of online gambling, one which has done much in its short time of operation to establish itself as an upcoming and professional service. This organization initially held two licenses in gaming, with the Malta Gaming Authority and Curacao eGaming, but have recently been awarded a third license from the UK Gambling Commission.

Restricted countries are as follows: Afghanistan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Ethiopia, France, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, United States and Yemen.

CASINO BACKGROUND

Owned by MT SecureTrade Limited Casinos, an organization which also owns the Cashmio, Dunder, Rizk, Shadow Bet, Betspin, InstaCasino, TOM’s and Guts Casinos.

The system hardware for this casino is registered within Malta itself.

GENERAL OPERATION

This is another casino service which exists entirely online, with no physical location that can be visited in order to gamble. This online service exists in two forms, app and website. The website can be accessed easily from both a mobile device and a proper computer system, though for mobile operation they claim that the app is much better suited. This app is compatible with a great many mobile devices in both phone and tablet form and has low requirements for both.

The main focus of this site is online slots, with Casino Land offering over 180 different varieties to choose from. There are also multitude of different video poker games available on demand.

OTHER SERVICES

Live chat is available 24/7 in English, Norwegian and Swedish, with email and phone support also being available for Canada, the UK and international callers. In addition to this Casino Land offers a contact page within their site which can be used for non-urgent matters.

Casino Land Design and Usability

The design of the main site makes it immediately obvious that this site is the product of up-to-date knowledge and design conventions. Simple click and dropdown boxes are used for navigation, with the site itself running surprisingly well given the complexity of the menu systems. That is not to say the menu system is in any way confusing, as it is perfectly obviously laid out and is always simple to use. This business also changes the exact type of site you see based on your region, for example if you are located within New Zealand then the base currency to be used as reference will be $NZ, with even the graphics of a large, well dressed and apparently gambling ready kiwi greeting you on the main page.

The same simple design can be seen from on the app, with large buttons and an easily scrolling screen making it quick and easy to determine where you are, and where you want to go. Note that like many modern websites this site might have problems with older computers hardware and software, so if you are running from a very dated system you should be sure to look before you leap and update what you can (especially your browser).

LIVE CASINO

No effort was spared in terms of live casinos for this business, with it offering a lot in the way of live dealers despite not being the size of some of the better known and larger online gaming sites.

Currently offered by Casino Land are fourteen live blackjack dealers, three for roulette and baccarat and one each for live casino hold’em and three card poker. Unlike many sites the dealers for these games aren’t just attractive young women, but include attractive young men as well.

These live tables can also be further separated into more the immersive types where the dealers are more interactive (available for roulette) and VIP subtypes for higher rollers. These VIP rooms are available for one roulette table and five types of blackjack, with an extra Blackjack Platinum VIP section available for the most serious gamers.

MOBILE APPS

The mobile app for Casino Land is available for iOS, Android and Windows systems, meaning it can be accessed from most mobile phones and many types of tablets. Those tablets and phones that are not compatible can still try their luck with direct access to the main website, but this might cause the site to improperly load or be difficult to use with limited screen space and interactivity.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registering an account for Casino Land is a simple free two-step process with the following required details:

The first of the Casino Land registration forms

The first page details account information and user name.

The second of the Casino Land registration forms

The second form ask for location and mobile phone details.

CASHING OUT

Cashing out from Casino Land can be done in the following ways: Neteller, Paysafe Card, Ukash, Visa, iDEAL, POLi, EcoPayz, Euteller, Skrill, Trustly and WebMoney. Among these methods the EWallet withdrawals are processed the fastest at around 24 hours (post 24-48 pending time) and credit and debit cards are the slowest, taking from 3-5 days (also including 24-48 hours pending time).

There is a maximum withdrawal rate of €5,000 per day, and this is available only from Monday to Friday.

BONUSES

As a smaller business Casino Land cannot offer the bonuses of the larger sites, but they are not without rewards.

Their signup bonuses come with the first four deposits made by a customer, with the first deposit giving a 100% match up to 1st deposit, the second deposit giving a 50% match up to $200, the third deposit giving a 25% match up to $200 and the forth deposit giving an additional 25% match up to $200.

As for vouchers and promotions, these occur regularly and are sent out to the email accounts of registered users, or given out over twitter.

Our Experience and General Reviews

Positive reviews and experiences on Casino Land tend to revolve around the ease of access and variety of games, especially for those interested in different types of slots. Users also compliment the speed of the customer service, though some have claimed that the customer service representatives were rude and rushed them along.

Other complains include the usual problems of the first withdrawal and verification process being a long and painful one, even among those who are used to this sort of behavior from online gaming sites.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

The comparisons to other gambling services mostly relate to what is on offer, and how this is tied to the size of the business. Most businesses this size, for example, do not offer anything close to the amount of live dealers that Casino Lands does, leaving them as a surprising force in this particular method of gaming.

Also of note is the sheer amount of slots of offer, with Casino Land having far more variety than many of their larger contemporaries. If you like slots then this is definitely a site you should check out.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

Work of mouth about Casino Land often deals with the amount of time that they take to verify accounts and give payouts. While Casino Land staff claim that this is because of an enormous focus on safety and quality of service, rather than quantity, there are those who say that this is a deliberate tactic which is used in order to discourage withdrawal and encourage higher deposits.

There is also a lot of back and forth over the quality of the customer support, with some praising their speed and others condemning their attitude and work ethic.

SOCIAL MEDIA

While Casino Land does have an online presence on both Twitter and Facebook it is a rather slim one. Despite being so successful in the industry, and having a lot of emphasis placed on the speed of their direct customer support replies, their social media activity is only minor, with few followers and even fewer updates for both Twitter and Facebook.

The Casino Land Facebook page

Our Rating

Rating this casino is, to a large extent, based off the enjoyment you get from their areas of focus. If you like a lot of different slot games and some quality live dealers then this could be an ideal site for you, if not then you could quite easily find this site lacking.

In this constantly evolving environment of online gambling this is definitely one to keep an eye on, just make sure that you look before you leap.

Combined with the issues regarding customer support and payouts we feel a 3/5 rating is accurate, though might be a little high or low depending on your personal tastes.

G’Day

Casino employs the use of a variety of popular and powerful software, including NetEnt, Betsoft, Leander Games, NextGen, NYX Gaming, and Quickspin.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The Caddell Limited NV Casino group which owns the G’Day Casino also owns a multitude of other casinos from all over the world, meaning that they aren’t new to the game or what is needed in the market for online gambling.

This online casino operates out of London, England.

GENERAL OPERATION

This is another casino which only exists online, with the physical location only being used for servers, administration and maintenance. While this website does not have an app available for mobile use, it does have a custom area on their site which is directly optimized for use on mobile devices.

The games contained within the website are built for quick play, claiming that this is used in order to decrease the data usage costs that often occur with usage of some of the larger sites. In practice there is not much of a noticeable difference. G’Day Casino accepts the following forms of deposit: MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Visa, Sofortuberwaisung, POLi, GiroPay, Skrill, dotpay, TrustPay and Local Bank Transfer.

GAMES COVERED

The game layout for G'Day casino

The game layout for G'Day casino.

OTHER SERVICES

Live chat is available 24/7, with additional support being offered via a support email address.

They also offer a number of services that are built around assisting with responsible gambling, these include deposit limits, time reminders, time-out periods and self-exclusion services. Their website even includes basic information that helps reader determine if they have a gambling problem and offers various tips and links that can be followed to help out those in need.

G'Day Casino Design and Usability

The design of G’Day Casino is reminiscent of the internet’s ever-present popup advertisements, with a focus on color and moving animations to catch the user’s eye. The general green and yellow colors evoke a similar scheme to that of the Wallabies, Australia’s very successful rugby union team or, for those less sports inclined, the same color scheme of John Deere farm equipment.

While well labeled and simple to understand this type of flash-heavy site is destined to create trouble for some of those running on outdated or underpowered hardware, though to an extent this problem can be assuaged by running through the mobile version of the site, which is somewhat less demanding.

LIVE CASINO

Despite being one of the smaller online gaming sites, G’Day Casino still gives its users access to eight live casino games. There are four types of roulette, three types of blackjack and one live baccarat room.

MOBILE APPS

As mentioned above, G’Day Casino does not have any actual app for their business, but rather they rely on a page which is created for the sole purpose of mobile access. In order to access this mobile site you can either follow the links from the main page which lead to a page where a user can type in their mobile phone number and have a link sent directly to their phone, or alternatively simply visit the main page from their site. In the case of the second option the website should automatically detect that user access is coming from a mobile site and redirect the user appropriately.

It is also worth noting that the G’Day mobile sites indicate they have less on offer than the desktop versions, but still offer “No fewer than 3 games offer major real-money prizes”.

According to their website the following mobiles and tablets are supported:

Apple iOS – iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, Ipad2, Ipad3 with iOS 4.0+

Android Devices – Running Android version 2.3.5+

HOW TO REGISTER

Registration for this site is a simple two-step process. The first step is entering your account information per the screen-grab below. The second step is authenticating your account by clicking on the link that is sent your email after the completion of the below form.

The registration form for G'Day casino.

CASHING OUT

Cashing out is limited to the following options: MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Visa, Bank transfer, POLi and Skrill. Withdrawal times are typical for an online gaming site, with E-Wallet withdrawals being the fastest at around 24 hours while bank transfers sit at the longest at up to 10 days. This is in addition to the pending times of 24-48 hours across all withdrawals.

The minimum withdrawal sits at £30, with the maximum withdrawal sitting at £2500 a week.

BONUSES

G’Day Casino really paints itself as an Australian business here with a unique take on localized promotion. If your first deposit exceeds AU$100 and you wager this amount of money a minimum of ten times or lose your initial deposit then G’Day Casino will send you a slab of beer, although please note that this offer is only available for Australia, NZ, the UK and South Africa.

Other promotions offered by the site include 50 free spins in the When Pigs Can Fly slot game, bonuses on your first three deposits, an ongoing 10% deposit bonus (up the $50 per day), Facebook draws and additional bonuses for each day of the week Monday-Friday and a few created specially for the weekend.

The first three deposit bonuses are as follows:

Welcome Bonus 1: 100% Match Bonus up to Infinity on your first deposit.

Welcome Bonus 2: 25% Match Bonus up to $500 Bonus on your second deposit.

Welcome Bonus 3: 50% Match Bonus up to $500 Bonus on your third deposit.

Our Experience and General Reviews

Online reviews tend to paint a positive picture of G’Day Casino and the way they operate, with most ratings sitting slightly above 7 out of ten stars. This is mostly in line with the writers own experience in that most of what they do they manage to do well, though there are some exclusions in my own experience with the aforementioned live casino.

Common complaints among other reviewers also revolve around the fact the G’Day Casino does not offer games from the Microgaming line of software. The games, especially slot based ones, that are built upon this software are among the most popular and best received, though how much this will matter to you will depend on you own personal tastes.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

In terms of other casinos of this size, G’Day casino offers a lot for its size and what you put it. For a smaller site they are still active in updating and awards while offering, in some ways, a level of variety that even some of the largest sites do not match. Unfortunately this size has been reported to lead to long customer service wait times, which can be problematic.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus seems to be that G’Day Casino offers a lot of specialized games and is fantastic if you like slots, keno and bingo. Common complaints include the slow contact time from staff (which staff claim to be addressing) and the slow authentication process that is typical for all online gaming services.

SOCIAL MEDIA

While they appear to lack a twitter presence, G’Day Casino has a large and active Facebook account which staff use to give out promotions and interact with players. This Facebook account puts many of the larger sites to shame and is really impressive given the size of the operation.
The Facebook page for G'Day Casino

Our Rating

This casino really seems purpose built around a specific type of customer based in Australia or New Zealand, and in this it works well. Simple to get around, a great selection of games (provided you are using the regular version of the site) and an active presence lend a lot in making this smaller site a welcome alternative to some of the bigger names in the business.

On the other side of the equation we have the lack of an app, the sometimes slow response times and lack of some functionality from their website. That being said, this is definitely a site to keep an eye on, if they keep going with upgrades and follow their intentions then G’Day Casino could one day be one of the best.

3/5 stars.

Platinum Play Casino Review, Helpful Information and Bonuses

Platinum Play Casino

General Information

Owned by Digimedia Ltd and established in 2004, Platinum Play Casino was one of the first major sites to capitalize on the growing online gambling marketplace of the 2000s, with its accomplishment and reliability leading to the success it enjoys today as one of the most popular gaming sites online.

CASINO BACKGROUND

Licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, Platinum Play Casino is the property of Digimedia Ltd, which is itself owned by Fortune Lounge Group Casinos.

The website servers have a physical location of Villa Seminia 8, Sir Temi Zammit Avenue, Malta.

GENERAL OPERATION

This casino only operates online, with no physical casino available to visit. The online portion of this casino is separated into three main modes of operation: browser, desktop and mobile app. Browser access is the standard and is used by simply logging into the website and entering your login details. Naturally this is best suited to desktop or laptop systems, though this means there is a possibility of data loss or errors if the user has a compromised or glitchy browser.

The desktop service can be accessed per a download from the site. This allows the user to eliminate many of the problems which can stem from the aforementioned browser problems, and should allow most basic access to perform faster than the browser counterparts. The final is the mobile app, which is available for most Android and IPhone devices, and is also compatible with a great many varieties of tablet hardware.

GAMES COVERED

Platinum Play Casino offers all you would expect from a successful online gaming system, and more. Among the standard offerings are pokies (classic 3-reel, 5-reel or Microgaming exclusive progressive slots), poker, blackjack, baccarat, keno, roulette, craps and scratch cards. Most of these games come with common variants, such as roulette offering American, English or French varieties.

With the adaption of the powerful Microgaming platform, Platinum Play Casino gives the user access of over 500 common and lesser known electronic games, each with differing levels of rewards, challenge and requirements. In terms of variety, Platinum Play Casino is no slouch. Their service also offers live dealers for blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

An example of the games pages of Platinum Play Casino

Just a few on the games on offer from Platinum Play.

OTHER SERVICES

Live chat is always available for Platinum Play Casino, in the case of questions or a need for customer support. This is 24/7, and can also be accessed over phone or email, and is available in eight different languages.

This site also includes various links to follow for those who struggle with problem gambling.

Royal Vegas Casino Design and Usability

The webpage, downloadable desktop program and phone app all use a similar modern and professional design. Access and navigation is simple, with dropdown boxes and large buttons making the site simple and usable to players of all ages. The only possible problem is with older computing or mobile systems, as the up-to-date system may not play nice with older hardware or software. If you have a modern computer and even a little bit of knowledge on how websites work then this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

LIVE CASINO

With dealers located in Microgaming’s dealer studio in Canada, live games for Platinum Play Casinos are split into Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat. These tables do not allow for free play, so they can only be used with real money. These live games allow simultaneous play, meaning you can sit at multiple tables at the same time if you prefer to and have the ability to focus on multiple games simultaneously.

In terms of access, only computer forms of logins can access these dealers, meaning browser and desktop players can all get in on the live action, with mobile users currently being unavailable (though with standard browser logins from these devices it will often be possible). For those inclined there are Playboy Bunny dealers in addition to the standard professional and attractive staff. Note that there is no dealer chat, so the focus is entirely on the game.

MOBILE APPS

The mobile Apps are available for most Android and IPhone devices, and is also compatible with a great many varieties of tablet hardware. As per their website these are available on the following devices:

Smartphones: Android, Blackberry, Apple, Java or Symbian devices. For those not sure of the software, that would be iPhones, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Motorola.

Tablets: iPads, Samsung and Blackberry.

These can be downloaded from Google Play or ITunes, depending on your hardware and the operating system of your device.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registering for a Platinum Play account is free and performed either through the App or the website. The required information to generate an account is the standard country, address, phone number and identification data, this is performed in two steps and can be completed in less than 5 minutes. Required information for registration is as follows:

The first of the Platinum Play registration forms

The first of the Platinum Play registration forms has you fill out account information.

The second of the Platinum Play registration forms

The second form is for location and personal information.

CASHING OUT

Platinum Play makes an important distinction in that they are upfront about not always being able to use the same withdrawal method as was used for the deposit. Instead, these are separated into the following common online monetary systems: Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, ClickandBuy, ECO Card, Maestro, Neteller, Postepay, Solo, Switch, Ukash, Visa Electron, instaDebit, Visa, Entropay, Nordea, EPS, CartaSi, EZIPay, Diners Club International and Skrill.

As is standard, the withdrawal times changes depending on the method, with EWallet systems beings the fastest at 24-48 hours and cheques being the slowest, taking 7-28 days for a withdrawal. There is a weekly withdrawal limit of $5000 in place.

BONUSES

After the first login the user is introduced to the login bonus. This bonus is available directly after the production of an account, and is split into two categories. The first is the $/€1,000 free bonus, which is paid out across a customer’s first 5 deposits, giving a 100% match in deposited funds, for each deposit, up to a maximum of $/€200 per individual deposit. The second bonus is the 50 free roulette spins, this becomes available on the third deposit and is spread across the Bridesmaids™, Dragon Dance, Bikini Party, Wild Orient and SunTide games.

In addition to these initial login bonuses, Platinum Play runs midweek bonuses and monthly promotions, the details of which are sent by email to registered users.

Our Experience and General Reviews

Most online rating sites have placed Platinum Play Casino at around a 7/10 rating, which is fairly common for high profile and active online gaming sites. Most people praise the variety on offer as well as the quality of the customer support available. Negatively ranked is the sending of related gambling booklets and leaflets to the addresses of those who sign up, as well as the slow times of the very first withdrawal. There have been a multitude of complaints about the usability of the website itself, but this seems to be have been addressed with recent changes to the website bringing it up to better and more modern standards.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

Platinum Play Casino is often compared to the other big names of the gaming business, with their success and accessibility being of high caliber. The most positive comparison comes from both the live dealers, which is still relatively rare among all but the most successful online gaming services, and the sheer amount of games that are on offer from the Microgaming service.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

Platinum Play Casino is generally held in high regard among online gamers, with most of the attention coming from those who have actively engaged in the system relating positive experiences in terms of both usage and customer support. There are a few reports of issues relating to withdrawals, as identification for cashout can require some personal information that people can be wary of revealing, but further investigation of these claims leads to the conclusion that most of these claimants are those who either should not be accessing the service, or those who are venting after a big loss.

SOCIAL MEDIA

While Platinum Play Casino does have a presence on both Facebook and Twitter, this presence in minor. The Facebook page is almost non-existent whereas the Twitter page has a mere 413 followers.

The Platinum Play Casino Facebook page

The Platinum Play Casino Twitter page

Our Rating

Rating this casino needs to take into account what its place is, how well it does what it wants, and how well it helps those who need help. Offering quality layout and a helpful staff means this service sits well among its contemporaries, though by having only a small presence outside of their own site and offering help in less languages than the site itself operates on it guarantees that some users will inevitably be stuck without easy recourse. The sending of pamphlets direct to a person’s home is also annoying for many, as is the restriction of a few important countries.

With all of this in mind the ranking we give Platinum Play Casino is 3.5/5.

OTHER SERVICES

Royal Vegas Casino offers 24/7 live-chat services in addition to contact through email, Skype, iMessage and Whatsapp. They also contact phone numbers available for speakers of English, Dutch, Finnish, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.

They do not offer anything in the way of self-limitation, exclusion or problem gaming help.

Royal Vegas Casino Design and Usability

Royal Vegas Casino offers a solid design which, while average in some regards, performs well in others. The general motif fits the name, with royal reds and gold taking up a large portion of the visual space, this is on top of large blue buttons and white text. While this makes everything easy to read, the variety of colors on offer here don’t especially mix. In short, it looks like two different sites that were split horizontally down the middle of the screen. There is also an issue where the large display banner constantly flicks forward every five seconds, which can be aggravating on sore or tired eyes.

That is not to say that the design is all bad, however, as the way the casino works is an initial loading time followed by pushing the display to the screen. What this means is that once you are into the main site you can flick between tabs and find your way around almost instantly. Many sites decide to instead load with each click, meaning a long wait time as you flick between games, so Royal Vegas Casino is fantastic in this regard. Their design is also rather simplistic, you won’t get lost, and that is a good thing.

LIVE CASINO

Royal Vegas Casino offers a grand total of 15 live casino games, these are: 4 forms of blackjack, 3 baccarat tables, 2 casino hold’em tables, Caribbean stud poker, 3 card poker, 3 roulette tables and 1 for live sicbo.

MOBILE APPS

The mobile app offered for Royal Vegas Casino is of the ‘no-download’ variety. This means that you simply visit the website from your mobile devices web browser and you well be automatically sent to the mobile version of the site.

The requirements for this are as follows: Apple iOS 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows phone 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above.

They also offer live support for these devices.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registering for Royal Vegas Casino is a simple two-step process with no email verification required.

The second of the Royal Vegas registration forms

CASHING OUT

Royal Vegas Casino offers the following forms of withdrawal: Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, ClickandBuy, ECO Card, Maestro, Neteller, Postepay, Solo, Switch, Ukash, Visa Electron, instaDebit, Visa, Entropay, Nordea, EPS, CartaSi, EZIPay, Diners Club International and Skrill.

The fastest of these methods are through E-Wallets, with time being around 24-48 hours, while credit and debit cards take from 2-5 days, bank transfers taking 3-7 days, and cheques taking the longest at 7-28 days. The given pending time for withdrawals is 24 hours, while the withdrawal limit sits at $5000 per week.

The wagering requirements for Royal Vegas Casino sits at a rather average 30x, with the game contributions as follows: 100% for keno, scratch games and slots, 10% for roulette, video poker, craps, baccarat and blackjack (excluding classic blackjack), while classic blackjack and all aces video poker offer 2%.

BONUSES

The welcome bonus for Royal Vegas Casino is worth up to a maximum $1200, with the contribution amounts as follows: 100% on the first deposit up to $250, 25% on the second deposit up to $200, and a 50% match on the third deposit, up to $750. What this means is that a total deposit of $2550 is necessary in order to claim all of possible welcome bonuses. These are only available within 14 days of opening.

At the moment of writing there are 5 promotions on offer, and these will change over time. The currently running are a free spin for bonus prizes on the Wheel of Fortune, 2x reward points on the Yellow Emperor, Life of Richces and the Immortal Romance games, a free roll for a 500 and 1000 pound prize-pool, and a free tournament with a 5000 pound prize pool.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My personal experience with this website has been very positive, with the sites fast loading nature and easy to navigate layout meaning I can quickly move around the site and find what I need. I especially like the favorite button which comes up with each game you jump into, once this is selected you can cut down even more time by accessing your favorite games through the heart shaped favorite button to the left of the main site’s page.

Most online sites rate Royal Vegas Casino highly, with the majority of reviews sitting at 4 or even 5/5.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

The most favorable comparisons to other casinos come from the speed of the website, as well as the simplicity of the design. Also favorable are the bonuses and prizes on offer, as well as the standard wagering requirements and the fact that wagering requirements can be met through any game, though some do payout at a considerably lower rate.

Where it can fall short is its lack of proper desktop downloadable variant as well as proper mobile apps, though whether or not this will affect you personally depends on the power of your mobile device.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

Popular rating site askgamblers.com has Royal Vegas Casino at 6.78/10, with reviewers praising its great deals and selection of games, with complaints often centered on the 5k limit for weekly withdrawals. Other such sites as casino.org rates it as 4/5, casino listing.com has it as 8/10, while cardschat.com rates it at an incredibly high 9/10.

SOCIAL MEDIA

While Royal Vegas Casino does appears to have far more followers that the average social media presence for gaming sites it also appears that they do little in the way of updates and communication, with neither their Facebook nor Twitter pages having been updated since 2015.

Our Rating

Royal Vegas casino has a lot to offer, both in terms of games and rewards. Their selection of slot games, blackjack and tournament games in particular are among the best around, while their other games aren’t as varied, but they still manage to cover all the bases that customers have come to expect. Their website is fast and elegant, though this effect is somewhat mitigated on mobile devices, and the lack of requiring an official app can actually be a boon to some. This is definitely one of those sites that has had a lot of thought put into customer satisfaction, and it shows.

Party Casino Review, Helpful Information and Bonuses

Party Casino

General Information

Established in 1997 by bwin.party Casinos, Party Casino is an old boy in the online gambling game, and boasts that it is the largest of the online gaming services. Party Casino offers a great many games while specializing, as many online sites do, in pokies.

To deliver these game Party Casino employs the following gaming software systems: PartyGaming, Electracade, Cryptologic (WagerLogic), Evolution Gaming, Betsoft and IGT (WagerWorks).

Use of their services is restricted in the following countries: Afghanistan, Angola, Bulgaria, Cook Islands, Cuba, France, Gibraltar, Guatemala, India, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Libya, Nigeria, North Korea, Portugal, South Korea, Syria, Turkey and the United States.

They currently hold licenses from the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.

CASINO BACKGROUND

The group that owns this casino, bwin.party Casinos, also operates the Gamebookers and bwin Casinos.

Originally called the Starluck Casino by Ruth Parasol under the organization iGlobal Media, Party Casino has gone on to be one of the largest in the business, even earning a place in 2005 on the FTSE100 Index. After a merger in 2011 between PartyGaming and bwin Interactive Entertainment this company became the largest online gaming company that currently exists.

Headquarters for this group are registered on the Isle of Man.

GENERAL OPERATION

This online only casino is available in the standard webpage variant as well as a downloadable desktop version and a mobile app for use on the go.

Party Casino accepts the following forms of deposits: Bank Wire Transfer, ClickandBuy, Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafe Card, Solo, Switch, Ukash, UseMyBank, Visa Electron, Visa, Western Union, Entropay, Citadel Commerce, Trustly and Skrill.

In addition, Party Casino is available in the following languages: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, French, Greek, Romanian and Russian.

GAMES COVERED

Party Casino offerings cover all the main bases in what you would expect from a modern online gaming service. They separate their games into the following categories: jackpot slots, pokies, roulette, blackjack, live casino, table games, and video poker, with additional tabs added for new and featured games. Of these offerings the majority focus on slots.

Party Casino featured games

Just a few of the many slots games on offer from Party Casino

OTHER SERVICES

As such a large and successful site, Party Casino is able to offer a help in ways that many sites cannot. This includes a 24-7 live chat service, an email address for general enquiries, as well as toll free phone numbers for 26 different countries and an international line for which international charges do apply.

On top of this they also include a short FAQ and a question submission form which can be filled out from the website itself. They also some very helpful information on responsible gambling, even offering a self-exclusion tool and a self-help toolkit. Attention of this level to problem gaming is rare, so their effort here is really above and beyond what most sites offer.

Party Casino Design and Usability

The design of the Party Casino website brings one main concept to the forefront: no-nonsense. With only one banner on the main page linking to various bonus offers and sales with a background image of a popular featured game the rest of the site is nothing but simple text and image links to everything you could want or need. This is aided by the simple black and white layout, with small amounts of blue trim.

It will never take you long to find what you want when you use this site, and that is a very good thing.

LIVE CASINO

In total Party Casino offers 12 live casino games, certainly enough to cover the basics but probably a little bit less than what people would expect from a site of this size.

The games that are covered on this site include two forms of blackjack, four forms of roulette, two baccarat tables, casino hold’em, Caribbean stud poker, three card poker and ultimate Texas hold’em.

MOBILE APPS

The mobile offerings for Party Casino go above and beyond what most sites can offer. In addition to the main site being accessible from a mobile device (though this is not recommended) they also offer a desktop download which can also be used on some mobile devices (though, again, this is not recommended), and a proper mobile app for Android, iOS, Windows phones and Blackberry. This mobile app can be found through iTunes, Google Play, and most other applicable app stores.

In terms of compatibility, the app will run on iOS 7.0.X and up, Android 3.X and up, Windows Phone version 7 and up and Blackberry OS10 and above.

It is important to note, however, that not all games are offered on the mobile apps, though to make up for this Party Casino have created a bonus for progressive jackpots and the ability to play games ‘just for fun’, that is the ability to try the games without putting any money down.

HOW TO REGISTER

Registration for Party Casino is a simple two-step process with no email verification required.

The first Party Casino registration form

The first step of registering for Party Casino asks for your person information.

The second Party Casino registration form

The second step concerns the users account data.

CASHING OUT

Party Casino offers withdrawals in the following forms: Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, ClickandBuy, Neteller, PayPal, Ukash, Visa Electron, Visa and Skrill.

The fastest of these withdrawal methods are for EWallets, at around 24-48 hours, with credit/debit cards taking 2-5 days, bank transfers taking 3-7, and Cheques taking 14-28 days. All of these are on top of the 48-72 hour pending time.

The withdrawal limits here depend on your membership level, with the lowest VIP level being able to withdraw a maximum of 20k USD per month, while the highest VIP level allows for 150k USD per month.

The wagering requirements for this website are 30x your bonus plus deposit.

BONUSES

As you might expect with a site this size, Party Casino offers more variety than most when it comes to bonuses.

The first is a 100% bonus on your first deposit, up to $100. The second bonus, currently running, is a chance at a new iPhone, with tickets being given out for each $20 deposit, with additional tickets being given out at an increased rate of two per $20.

Also currently on offer are two day dependent bonuses, Wealthy Wednesday and Super Sunday. The Wealthy Wednesday only requires a login on Wednesday, which will then give you free spins on selected slot games. The Super Sunday bonus occurs similarly on a simple login on Sunday, by logging in you simply gain access to a card flip which can result in numerous different prizes including cash rewards, free spins, no deposit bonuses, free spin reloads and bonus reloads.

Weekdays and weekends also offer reload bonuses, where once during each of these periods you can log in to refill free spins on applicable games.

It should be noted that all of these bonuses are subject to change, as this site is so active they often switch between different prizes, so there is really a lot on offer here.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My personal experience with the casino has been largely positive, mainly due to how simple it was to navigate and find a few key games. There are some slight issues with load times though this will obviously vary based on your internet speed and computer specifications.

Online reviews for this site are mostly positive, with most hanging around 4/5, though popular rating site askgamblers.com only has it at a 5.8/10, above average but not great.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

In terms of what games are on offer, Party Casino does really deliver what you would expect compared to other casinos given its popularity and success, instead it operates in similar manner to many others in that it focusses on slots and selects a few other expected games, which it still does well.

The best comparison between Party Casino and other comes with the bonuses on offer, the ones offered here have a level of variety that is not often seen with others, even if their deposit bonuses are a little lacking.

The mobile app and desktop app are also of high quality, offering more range in terms of devices and access than most.

Party Casino also rates among the best when it comes to customer support, both in terms of speed and different avenues of communication on offer.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus on Party Casino revolves around praise for its mobile versatility, slot machines and live support. Complaints often revolve around the unreliability of the software, and while there are indications that Party Casino staff have worked to alleviate this issues there are still those claiming it they exist.

Askgamblers.com have it rated at 5.77/10, casinosexplorer.com have it at a much higher 4.3/5 and casinosource.ca have it at an even higher 9.8/10.

SOCIAL MEDIA

By all accounts Party Casino does not have a great social media presence. With no discernible Facebook page and only a few followers on twitter they seem to have placed not much worth on these platforms, though it is important to note that the twitter page does still get updates, just not often.

Our Rating

In accordance with what I have read in many individual’s testimony it is important to note that a rating for this site really depends on your individual mileage. If it works then it works very well, as it did for us. with a solid though not amazing selection, with the same being said it bonuses which range between great and below average.

While it really stands above the crowd when it comes to mobile accessibility and live support it is somewhat let down by a poor social media presence and an apparent so-so level of software reliability. Even with these issues, however, I feel confident in drawing a conclusion for the rating of Party Casino.

4/5 stars, with room for improvement.
