Review of Caribbean Gold Casino
Caribbean Gold Casino is a paradise-themed offering from the well respected E.H. Gaming Ventures group, which is most well known for its flagship casino English Harbour. This company has been in business since 1997, making it one of the most experienced of all online casino operators. The casino boasts a full range of games developed by Vegas Technology, regular casino tournaments, a VIP comp point plan, and a bunch of bonuses for new players.
No longer in operation
E.H. Gaming Ventures closed all of its casinos in mid 2011.
Games at Caribbean Gold Casino
The Vegas Technology software offered by Caribbean Gold offers players a wide range of casino games including both classic and modern video slot machines, progressive jackpot slots, traditional casino table games and assorted parlour games like keno and bingo. One of the best assets of Vegas Technology casinos is the speed at which the games are downloaded and installed, and Caribbean Gold is no exception. While not the graphical extravaganzas that we have seen emerge in recent years, the games are attractive and easy to play, and they leave most other casinos for dead when it comes to lightning fast downloads - which means more time spent playing and less waiting and looking at progress bars.
The slot machine range at Caribbean Gold is impressive. They have everything from traditional 3 reel classics, through to more modern video slots with free spins and bonus round rewards. They even have a couple of unique 7 reelers. There are five progressive slots jackpots on offer, with the Red, White And Win machine usually sporting the biggest jackpot (see below for current value). In addition there are also progressive Caribbean Stud and Blackjack jackpots available.
The table games are among the fastest to play across all online casinos, which will no doubt please those of you who like to blaze through their hands of blackjack like me (just remember to disable the deal animations). You can take your pick from several blackjack variants including European and Vegas Strip rules, Caribbean Stud, Craps, European Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, Pai Gow Poker, Let'em Ride, Three Card Poker and more. And there is also a collection of video poker machines which includes Aces and Faces, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and more, each of which can be played in single or multi hand modes.
Scheduled casino tournaments
Caribbean Gold allows players entry to the English Harbour group shared casino tournaments which run on a regular schedule throughout each month. There are daily slots freerolls, weekly $5000 blackjack tournaments, and all manner of buy-in tournaments for slots, blackjack, video poker, and even roulette from time to time. Each month there is usually a headline tournament where the prize pool can tip the scales at $100,000 or more. If you enjoy casino tournaments, then Caribbean Gold is certainly worth a visit.
Banking and Support options
The banking options offered at Caribbean Gold are limited but they do have the major methods covered. e-Wallets such as Neteller, Moneybookers, Click2Pay and EcoCard are accepted, with QuickTender / UseMyWallet the preferred method for player in the USA. Checks can also be issued for withdrawals. There is a $5000 weekly limit on withdrawals - in our experience this limit is imposed without putting any excess funds back into your account, so you don't have to keep coming back to request a new withdrawal each week while at the same time resisting the temptation to play again. Withdrawals are usually processed with 48 hours once your identity has been verified.
Customer support is offered via live text chat, email and telephone. Current contact details can bee seen to the right on this page. The customer support crew here is available 20 hours a day, between the hours of 8am and 4am, U.S. ET.
Caribbean Gold and the rest of the casinos in the English Harbour group are some of the best options for U.S. players at present. The games are good quality, the support is good and the withdrawal times are decent. Recommended.
