Review of Challenge Casino
Operating for years out of the Canadian licensing jurisdiction of Kahnawake, Challege Casino is a Microgaming powered and eCOGRA certified casino that really delivers when it comes to providing a quality gaming experience. In short, the casino is run by a reliable operator in the Casino Rewards Group, and has a reputation among players for fast payouts, good customer service, and games from Microgaming that really are a lot of fun to play. The casino has decommissioned their website, leaving punters only with a downloadable piece of software, where the games are hosted.
Software and Games
As we mentioned above, Challenge Casino is powered by Microgaming casino software which has been around for the almost 20 years now, and in that time it has built a gaming library of more than 500 titles. The casino can be downloaded to your Windows PC and installed as an application. Many of the games are a lot of fun to play, and can really pay off if you get lucky. Most of the games available at Challenge Casino are video slots, which can offer hours of loud and dazzling entertainment. The game selection is varied, and you will find everything from original titles like 7 Oceans, Break Da Bank and Thunderstruck, to futuristic licensed games like Battlestar Galactica, Palyboy, and The Dark Knight.
Challenge Casino is also a member of Microgaming's progressive jackpot network, meaning that there are progressive games that can pay off with multi-million dollar jackpots. Some of the bigger jackpots include the multi-million dollar Mega Moolah and Major Millions, as well as smaller jackpots such as Treasure Nile and Tunzamunni. Table game players are not left out either, with progressive Cyberstud Stud Poker, and Roulette jackpots also available.
Speaking of table games, if they are what you prefer, there are a wide variety to play at Challenge Casino. While perusing the virtual floors, you will find Blackjack, Baccarat, Poker, Craps, Roulette, Pontoon, along with several variants of Video Poker. These games all play incredibly smoothly, with advanced features such as strategy selection and autoplay, and have low minimum bets which enables almost anybody to play.
It should be noted that there is no mobile site available, so you're stuck using the download software for desktop computers.
Banking and Customer Support
As is the case with most Casino Rewards casinos, there are a wide variety of banking options at Challenge Casino. When it comes to deposits you will find 20 different ways to put money in, including Visa, MasterCard, Bank Deposit, and Skrill. Deposits are handled instantly and are credited to your bankroll at the same time. Withdrawals aren't instant at Challenge Casino, with all cashout requests held for a 48 hour pending period, during which time we sincerely hope that you are not tempted to reverse your withdrawal. After that you can expect to have your money in your account within a day. Also note that for those of you lucky enough to hit a very big win, the casino's large withdrawal policy may kick in. It states that withdrawals of amounts 5x or more greater than your lifetime deposits at the casino may be paid in instalments of $/£/€4000 per week. Thankfully this policy does not apply to progressive jackpot winnings.
Our experience with the support staff at all casinos run by the Casino Rewards Group is generally positive, and Challenge Casino is no exception. The support crew is available 24/7 and live text chat is usually the quickest and easiest way to get in contact. They are also available via phone and email if you would prefer.
We feel that Challenge Casino is a very good spot for punters to play at. The casino has hundreds of great slots, and its table game selection is varied as well. If you can live with the 48 hour hold period on withdrawals then there is very little to find fault with at this casino.
I remember my first deposit here, I played the Ragbi Slot a month ago. Literally, I just played that slot, and from Deposit of $ 100 for a few days I came up to $ 250 on my account. Later I went to roulette and lost about $ 80. The rest of the money I paid to the Bank Account.
I'm happy with this casino, although I've only played two games. I did not have the chance to try another slot but I'm going to make new deposits these days and try some new titles.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Challenge casino is tightness. I mean a 25% welcome bonus is very small offer. From one side it's great as it gives you a super small boost yet you can wager the bonus quickly because of the small wagering attached to it. I like that the wager is only 30x but comparing to other Casino Rewards casinos, this one in my opinion is one of the tihtest with bonuses. And other than that, I think they are a trustful casino but average. The game selection is large but they don't stand out for me with anything, comparing to other MG casinos or even CRG casinos. I played there once and claimed this small bonus and after that I didn't come back and am not planning to.
yet another Casino from the great Rewards group,
also powered with Microgaming software, and lot of good stuff you will find on challenge.
They offer to start ofcourse a welcome bonus, 100% wager is 30 which is really fair since it's only 30times bonus and not deposit+bonus! challenge also provides excellent high class customer support, who working all day and are available mostly, and responding quick and helpful, which is very important. processing of withdrawals/ winnings goes quickly even though it sometimes stuck sometimes very long in pending period but mostly it's processed under 24 hours average which is a fair time to wait. when i started there i claimed welcome bonus and wagered it very fast therefore i have good experience with payout of winnings, and fairness of there bonuses. challenge is a really nice casino too try!
Casino challenge i remember very good, because when i get recommendation email from casino rewards(yes, they always send me this recommendation emails to join their another casino, even if i had already account with this casino, so i usually check it before join). I was really surprised to see that welcome bonus in this casino is just 25% ,which of course very bad compared to almost all other microgaming casino. But i do try my luck with this bonus, made 50$ deposit and had 12.5$ in bonus so my wagering requirements was not too high, at least i thought so. So i opened thunderstruck II and start playing, by the way i am very happy that in microgaming casinos when you installed any game downloaded to PC and on next installed casino it is not needed to wait while game loading again, very good for me. Unfortunately at 0.6$ bet size playing only thunderstruck II i did not had any features and quickly lost, of course i had few 5 of a kinds, but without anything decent, because like most of you probably know at thunderstruck II is hard to win without bonus features. After such loss i never played in this casino again.

I remembered very good challenge casino, due to their 'unique' welcome offer that it is want to give to new player and show how it is welcome new players. But let me start from pluses of course, this casino have two pluses.
+ Software. Microgaming download application, and also quickfire games available at website. I tried only application, and like always i can confirm that microgaming games working perfectly there, i did not remember any problems with it.
+ Customer support. Cs is really great at challenge casino, or at any other CR group casino. It is open 24/7, and you can start conversation with customer support from application, or from website probably, i am always use it from application so i did not really know.
And two minuses for challenge casino.
- Bonuses. I did not even need to complain about not rewarding active players at challenge casino with any reload bonuses or interesting promotions, but first deposit bonus of 25% it is just unrespect, nothing else.
- Withdrawals. 3-7 working days to get paid it is too long compared to many other MG casinos, i am not saying about casinos that paying within hours.
Even welcome offer at this CR casino is bad.

Challenge casino use microgaming software and also this casino run by casino rewards i think every player hear about this group few times and it is nice group of casinos i am proud to announce that i play at all this casino and never have bad experience only sometimes slots is cold but this can happen at any casino. Also good thing that casino has seal from ECOGRA and this promise fair games and honest casino.I play at this casino 3 times but no luck for me i play thunderstruck II slot every time but game was cold and after losing few deposits in a row with no chances to win anything i decide to stop play at this casino. I not say casino is bad it is just my policy to not play again in casinos that i have very bad luck and can not win anything. Like any other casino in this group have very good live chat that working 24/7 and also should have same payouts speed most times it is 3 days but some times if casino have some troubles it can take 4 or 5 days. I never experience problems here and think this is safe and honest online casino.

Hi, i hope you will enjoy my review of challenge casino. This is microgaming software casino, and moreover this casino belongs to casino rewards group. This means that it is safe casino in which you can play without any risk, because this group has nice reputation. Challenge casino has interesting bonuses on first deposits, with your very first deposit you will get 25% bonus, on second 50% bonus, and finally on third deposit casino offers you nice 100% bonus. I am not sure why this is done like this, more common is when on first deposit you get big bonus, and on all others lower bonuses, but not a problem, make 3 deposits in good casino can not be a problem, and i made 3 deposits to claim all of 3 their welcome bonuses, without luck of course, because i played 243 liners, but this is ok and i am happy with challenge casino, it is defo good casino in which you will not enforce any problems. But you will need to make 3 deposits in case you want 100% bonus, but like i told, this is not a problem to get such nice bonus.
Support: 24/7 from casino rewards group.
Withdrawals: i did not made any withdrawals from challenge casino, but i know about two days pending period.
Hello! Challenge casino is another one member of casino rewards group of casinos. I play at this casino too, but for all my deposits ( i think i made 3 deposits or 4), i did not take any bonus. And now i describe you why. On your first deposit challenge casino offers you 25% bonus up to 800$, so you need deposit 4000$ to get max. bonus. This is really one of the most stupid welcome offer i ever seen. Only 25% on first deposit, then for second deposit they can give you 50%, and on your third deposit, finally, 100% bonus but... But with 50$ max. Okay, i did not sure who create this bonus, but this is so stupid, who will be happy to make first deposit of 4k$ and then for third deposit max bonus is only 50$? For lowrollers not so good as you need make 2 deposits before get 100% bonus, for highrollers also not interesting. For whom they create this offer, can someone explain this to me? Really funny. Btw, all my deposits in this casino i lost, so i did not like it much.
Withdrawals: did not test, but casino rewards, you know... 2 days pending period
I give to challenge casino 3 stars, but i really did not understand why they made such welcome offer.
