Pure Vegas Casino is an online casino established in 2009 using games created by Real Time Gaming. It is operated by Rushpod Investments NV and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curaçao. Last updated: November 13, 2012.
Pure Vegas is one of the latest Real Time Gaming casinos to come online in 2009. Primarily aiming itself at the American market, Pure Vegas bills itself as "The American Online Casino". It has channeled its payment processing efforts to Americans exclusively, so much so that several common e-wallets that are not available to U.S. residents are not accepted.
Just a general note to warn that customers of the casinos in this group have reported to us incidences of extremely slow payment of winnings. Players should expect to wait at least a month to receive a payment from this group, and each payment is generally capped at a maximum of $2000 per instalment.
Update (November 2012): It appears the casinos for this group have either disappeared or gone out of business without warning. We have added them to our blacklist because even if they do re-appear they have irreparably lost what little trust they may have had with this latest development.
The first thing you notice at Pure Vegas is the impressive website. It is attractive without being over the top and this style is carried on into the casino software itself, which is available in both download and browser-based instant play versions. The casino features the entire RTG lineup of games, including progressive slots, table games such as blackjack, craps, roulette, caribbean stud and more, along with several variations of video poker.
Pure Vegas offers a multitude of bonus codes for new players including variations for slots players, high rollers, and even blackjack players. Take note that some of the bonuses are only available if you deposit using a credit card or gift card. There are also daily bonuses which you can claim twice per day (three times on weekends), and a VIP Rewards club which pays comp points as well as cashbacks on losses that can go as high as 12%.
Pure Vegas offers 24/7 toll free phone support, as well as live chat, email and fax numbers for you to contact customer support. The banking options could do with some improvement though - they accept a small selection of credit cards and e-wallets, but major players such as Neteller are conspicuous by their absence. Granted the casino appears to be aimed squarely at the American player who often cannot use such methods. Note that withdrawals are limited to $2000 per week, progressive jackpots included, and recent indications are that the payment processing speed has declined significantly at this group of casinos.
Pure Vegas looks the goods and certainly offers a wealth of bonus options for players. However we would like to see a wider range of deposit and withdrawal options, as well as bonuses that are not restricted to a small subset of the deposit methods. You can also expect to wait weeks for payments when withdrawing from this casino. If you're an American player and these things are not a problem for you then by all means try your luck, but until we hear of the payment processing speed being improved, we recommend anyone else to steer clear.
