Review of 50 Stars Casino
Entering this review, we expected a lot out of 50 Stars Casino. First off, 50 Stars Casino is a casino that is powered by Playtech software and licensed out of Gibraltar. These two organizations have a high standard for their casinos, and you will not find a fly by night organization being able to partner with them.
With any casino powered by Playtech we expect to see licensed games, good customer service and easy banking options. Does 50 Stars come through?
Software and Games
50 Stars Casino offers players its software through a download, which is available through their website. The software installs easily and runs smoothly.
There are definitely not a shortage of games to play at 50 Stars, with a solid variety of both table games and slot machines. There are a variety of progressive games available for those looking to strike it rich quickly, although we were not lucky enough to hit anything while playing there.
50 Stars also offers arcade style games like horse racing and Hi-Lo. For those of you who have never played Hi-Lo, we recommend that you give it a shot. It is both addicting and frustrating. 50 Stars version of this game is great and kept us coming back for more.
Keno is also available, but does not really do anything to stand out like the casino's colourful slots and arcade games.
Banking and Support
With a big name powering your software and having a regulating jurisdiction like Gibraltar endorsing you, you better have your act together when it comes to banking and customer support. 50 Stars does not disappoint in this aspect, and we found both sides of this issue to be more than adequate.
Options for both depositing and withdrawing funds from the casino are: Check, Citadel, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, Neteller, WebMoney, and Wire Transfer.
Options for deposit only are: Diners, EcoCard, EntroPay, ePassporte, iDeal, InstaDebit, Maestro, MasterCard, myCitadel, Paysafecard, Prepaid Phone Card, Reverse Withdrawal, Solo, Ukash, UseMyBank, Visa, Visa Debit, and Visa Electron.
One thing we were extremely disappointed to see is the $10,000 max monthly payout from this casino. While this may not seem like too big of a deal as some casinos have max limits of $2,000 and less, this total often does not include progressive jackpot winnings. 50 Stars' maximum DOES include progressive winnings, meaning that if you hit it big you could be waiting a while to get your funds out.
Customer service is provided by representatives through email, telephone and fax, or instant messaging. We found the reps to be extremely helpful and willing to listen to our questions. Response time was very quick and painless.
50 Stars Casino is a pretty solid Playtech powered casino. Being licensed in Gibraltar ensures that this casino answers to somebody, and the solid selection of games should keep you busy for a while. However, if you hit a big progressive jackpot there, be prepared to wait for the winnings due to the $10,000 monthly max payout.
