Review of Golden Casino
Golden Casino is a recently established online gaming company owned by Hambledon NV and licensed in Curacao. The casino has made waves with its aggressive customer acquisition strategy, offering a huge 100% match bonus for new players, up to a maximum of $555. The good news for our American friends is that they happily accept players from all American states. Apart from offering big sign-up bonuses, Golden Casino boasts stability and security for its clients.
Casino sold to new owners
Golden Casino was sold to new owners as of December 1, 2009. We are currently uncertain of whether the casino will continue to accept new players so for now we are marking it as closed. Existing players can continue to play there, but we recommend new players try out its former sister casinos Go Casino and Online Vegas instead.
Software and Bonus Offers
Vegas Technology – formerly Odds On – gives Golden Casino online games its face. Odds On was established before the dawn of the gaming industry, first as an eCash processor and later as an in-house graphics developer and game designer. Vegas Technology was instituted after a major overhaul on the Odds On systems and since then, it has garnered top official awards, including the 2005 Top Casino Software.
Golden Casino offers over 80 games in its full download version. Golden Casino offers the classics such as Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Red Dog, several varieties of slots and poker, and several progressive games.
Golden Casino offers one of the largest single deposit bonuses in the online gaming world: a single 100% deposit match bonus up to $555, with 20x the bonus amount for its wagering requirement. This is an especially good bonus for slots players, but fans of video poker, blackjack and other table games should play without the sign-up bonus due to wagering restrictions that exclude many such games.
Other bonuses include purchase match up of 25% for first purchase of Golden Casino’s Level 3 to 9 players for any amount between $50 and $1,000 every Monday, 50% between $50 and $500 every Wednesday and 100% between $50 and $250 every Friday.
A 15% Wire Transfer bonus is also available to players should they opt to deposit funds into their accounts through Golden Casino’s preferred money transfer service Frequent Players can also avail of per-invitation VIP promotions that offer bonuses depending on the player’s VIP level.
Golden Casino also invests heavily in security. The company uses Secure Socket Layer 3.0 technology in processing monetary transactions with its clients and 128-bit encryption for storing information. The casino received its license from the gaming authorities in Curacao and their gaming servers and operations are guarded 24/7.
Golden Casino accepts only $US transactions but they can convert currencies based on the existing exchange rates. One can use MyCitadel, Citadel, Credit Cards, NETeller, and Wire Transfer. There’s a minimum deposit requirement of $20 for MyCitadel, Citadel, Credit Cards, and NETeller while a minimum of $100 is required to deposit money through Wire Transfer. Members can also use MyCitadel, Bank Draft, and NETeller to withdraw.
Certain withdrawal limitations and restrictions have been instituted by Golden Casino. Apart from limited means to withdraw money, first-time withdrawals and payment-instruction changes are subject to a 5-10 day clearance period. Any withdrawal is also limited to a maximum of $8,000 a week.
Hambledon NV prioritizes and invests on efficient customer support. Phone and email support are available for Golden Casino clients on a 24-hours a day, 7-days a week basis.
