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.
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 Microgamin’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. Mega Moolah's biggest payout to date was €6.3 million in 2009, and it has also paid out over €5 million on a couple of other occasions. 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.
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.
