Review of Casino King
Casino King is a casino that is owned by iGlobalMedia Entertainment Limited and is operated out of Gibraltar. The casino features Playtech software and games and offers a solid library. We were interested in discovering this casino and seeing how it stands up to others in the industry. How did it fare?
Software and games
Upon visiting the casino's website we were greeted with several offers to download the software. Obviously for the casino to survive it needs to have players download its casino, but we were disappointed to see how Casino King went about this. We ended up turning down two on screen prompts to download, as we wanted to see how the site marketed its games to players. When we proceeded to click on the slot icon to see what was available, the software began downloading to our computer. While we were expecting to get this software for the review, it is kind of agitating to think as a customer that I am being forced to download your software before I can even get a handle on what you are offering.
When we did install the software we did not expect any further surprises, which thankfully did not happen. Playtech powered casinos offer a solid piece of software for you to put on your PC, and offer a great library full of licensed games.
Some of our favourites were Alchemist's Lab, and the great selection of table games. Casino King offers blackjack, roulette, craps, a large variety of slots, and some parlour games. Among these are keno, Hi-Lo, and horse racing.
We were impressed as always with the Playtech games, and beside our one complaint about the website downloading the software automatically, we really couldn't find much to snipe about.
Bonuses, Banking and Customer Support
As with any major casino, Casino king offers a variety of bonuses for its players to claim. We did like the bonus calendar, which lists currently available bonuses.
In terms of banking options, there are many available at Casino King, ensuring that players will not find a shortage in ways to deposit and withdraw funds.
The one complaint we have with the banking system is something that we see every so often: a $10,000 max payout per month, which includes progressive wins. We find this to be unacceptable and players who hit it big will be waiting years to get their dream completely fulfilled. There are other casinos that will entitle you to a one time giant payout if you hit a progressive jackpot, which is something you may want to keep in mind if you are looking to become a millionaire.
Customer service was above par at Casino King, with 24/7 support available through instant messaging, telephone, email or fax. We found the reps we interacted with to be friendly and knowledgeable, and always willing to work with us.
Casino King is a good casino that provides solid games and a great bonus schedule. Casino King escapes our highest rating due to the fact that there is a $10,000 max monthly payout on winnings including progressives, and because the website automatically downloaded the software to our computer.
