Review of Ignition Casino

American players often have a difficult time finding a good online casino to play at, as there are dozens of bad options for every good site offering their services to them. One company that has gotten things right with though is the Bovada group, who have developed and deployed the popular casinos Bovada and Slots.lv, which are known for their diverse library of games and betting solutions as well as quick payout times and professional management. I was therefore thrilled to see the operator's newest venture, Ignition Casino.

Software and Game Selection

Ignition Casino is a web-based casino that you access through your PC or mobile device's web browser. It is predominantly designed to be friendly to mobile browsers with a large squarish layout featuring buttons that look over-sized on a regular computer web browser. The site offers games supplied by Rival Gaming, and Bovada's older version of Realtime Gaming (RTG) slots, and even a few of the operator's proprietary games which you won't find anywhere else outside this group of casinos. Registering an account is a simple process, requiring you to enter some personal information directly through the site. I found it only took me a minute to do so, and just another minute to deposit funds into my account.

The game selection at Ignition Casino is good, giving you the chance to play video and classic slots, with dozens of games available in the 5-reel video slot style and 28 different classic 3-reel games on the casino's roster. There are also progressive jackpots available, with 19 slots giving you the chance to win prizes worth thousands of dollars.


In addition to slots, there are a series of table games to play, and I found myself frequenting the casino's five different styles of blackjack. Players looking for other table games will also find Caribbean Stud, Three Card Rummy, Pai Gow, Tri Card Poker, and other games, all of which share a similar presentation. Video poker and parlour style games like bingo, keno, and various scratch cards are also available to play.

Banking and Customer Support

Players from the United States will know that their banking options will be less than casinos that offer services in regulated areas. That is certainly the case at Ignition, where you only have the option of depositing via credit card or Bitcoin, both of which are accepted instantly. Payouts are allowed through a check that is sent via courier (usually FedEx) or through Bitcoin. Having won from Bovada in the past, I can tell you that the check method is the fastest I have ever seen for an online casino, as I always tend to get my checks within 1-3 business days. You get one free check per month, and any additional requests carry a fee.

The casino appears quite keen to persuade punters to use Bitcoin for both their deposits and withdrawals, citing the instantaneous nature of transfers and the lack of fees as strengths of the electronic currency. That is as may be, but those of you who prefer to use Bitcoin should note that the casino does not allow you to use it as an in-game currency. Instead they convert your BTC to U.S. Dollars on the way in and then back again on the way out when you withdraw. This of course leaves you subject to the rapid fluctuations of the BTC/USD exchange rate, which can regularly change by several percent in either direction on the same day.

Customer support is available through email and telephone. Staff are available to help you 24 hours a day, and I never had to wait more than a few minutes to get help via the email system. However it would be great to see instant chat available as this is often more convenient when you are sitting at your computer.

Security, Fairness, and Responsible Gaming

I was happy to see that Ignition Casino protects its players' information by using SSL encryption on their site at all times. This helps keep hackers or other bad guys from stealing your personal and financial information. This of course also applies to the banking system.

The fairness of the games or random number generator used is not directly addressed by Ignition Casino, either by publishing audited payout figures or theoretical RTP numbers for any of its games. While formerly licensed in Kahnawake, since September 2016 this casino does not appear to be licensed by any regulator or jurisdiction.

While responsible gaming is addressed by the usual page of self-help information, there are no in-casino controls available for players to limit their gaming activity. Players can self-exclude themselves from the site by contacting the casino.

Conclusion

Ignition Casino is effectively a skin of sister site Slots.lv, but I still really enjoyed my time with it. I like the reliability that Ignition Casino gives me as an American player, and the fact that I can get money quickly from the casino is a definite plus. If you're and American looking for a stable casino, I highly recommend Ignition Casino to you.

I have now played at Ignition Casino about 4 times and have been able to make one withdrawal. I like this casino for the variety of games which differ from the RTG games that I play most of the time as a US player. As noted above the casino offers rival, betsoft, and a small selection of RTG games as well as some very different games which are only offered at a small handful of casinos. The website is easy to navigate and I like that I can pull up games in a separate window without having any issues with resolution, or the game size either being smaller than I prefer or too large for the screen. I do have those issues with some games in other casinos.

The casino does not send out bonus offers regularly but they do offer a 100% weekly boost and a 100% bitcoin bonus. Both of these bonuses require a 25% playthrough B+D which is better than most of the bonus offers available to me on a regular basis. There is a rewards program with unlocked benefits quarterly based upon how many monthly reward points you have been earning for your play , as well a cashback program.

Making a deposit is simple but only available by credit card or bitcoin , while making a withdrawal can be by check, wire, or bitcocin. Players do need to be aware of the following terms , however, which I had no way of knowing when I went through the deposit and withdrawal process. If you do not make your deposit by bitcoin, you will be unable to make your withdrawal by bitcoin. These particular terms did create an issue for me due to my own unique situation, and I had a rather stressful time emailing back and forth with customer service over several hours trying to resolve my problem. Ultimately a customer service representative did call me and worked with me on resolution.

The casino does pride itself on its customer service with the stated aim to have some of the best service out there. The representative that I spoke to by phone was friendly, understanding , and interested in resolving my issue. I would suggest that email support is fine for brief communication or questions, while speaking to someone directly is best for resolution of more complex concerns.

With the exception of my own unique issue with payout, I found that the processing of my withdrawal request was quite rapid. My withdrawal request was reviewed and processed in less than 24hours and since I did finally work out an agreement to receive my payout by Bitcoin my payout was in my wallet in a little over an hour from the time it was approved and processed.

Although clearer terms while navigating the cashier for deposit and withdrawal would have made my experience more optimal I can definitely say that I am overall satisfied with play at this casino, feel that they are trustworthy, and will play in the future.

I have made around 7 small deposits at Ignition in the past couple of weeks. I finally was able to request my 1st withdraw two days ago ($900 on $40 dollar deposit) and am still waiting for a response back so im not too sure on how long the withdraw times are.

I called customer service and they answered quickly but I did not like the option of having no online chat. I liked the variety of games so overall I think its a good casino and once I receive my withdraw and depending on withdraw times I will try them again.

update to my review-I recently managed to get up to $2400. I withdrew 1k and not even 10 minutes later it was into my bitcoin acct. I was shocked and impressed. I made the withdraw at 8ish on a saturday night. The last time i withdrew it took 48 hours so not sure if this is a new thing but its great that there is another instant option for us players.

They do not tell you what the RTP% (Return to player %) is. I contacted customer service and they told me it is about 97% but could offer nothing to back up this claim.

I play a lot of regulated NJ online slots and they usually return about 93-96% so I have a good feel for what that looks like. It would just be my guess but with months of playing on Ignition I would guess they are only returning about 70% tops to its players which is awful. You almost never get a win over $5 and to get a win over $30 is something that almost never happens.

Almost all US-friendly online casinos do not report their RTP numbers, either the theoretical settings or the actual numbers. This is because they are not compelled to do so by any regulator. The customer service should not be making up numbers if they cannot provide any evidence to back up their claims.

I don't find a singular number like 97% to be very useful. I would much rather see the individual RTP numbers for each game so I can judge the ones that I am likely to play.

If you have the opportunity to play at regulated NJ sites I would stick to those and avoid the offshore sites altogether as the games, payment speed, and player protection are all better on the NJ sites.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I have played on Ignition for the last year or two, whenever we were encouraged to move from Bovada for their poker. They seem to be a great place to play, not only their poker but the variety of casino slots and table games. Their customer service has always been quick helpful and friendly. I do hear a lot of people complain they they don't have a lot of bonus and rewards given to everyone all the time. The reason for that is they are one of the casinos which actually pay and don't rip you off and lie to you. I have cashed out as much as $7,000 and have had friends who have cashed out multiple 1,000s of dollars with no issue what so ever. Last withdrawal made was a few weeks ago, $600 which I did through bitcoin which said it would take 72 hours to review, but I had it in less than 6 hours. I think they have a lot of great stuff going for them. More recently they updated their rewards program which I think has been great. They do actually reward you for your play, I don't see any issue or discouraging things to say about them. For my money, I would only play with them or their related sites as they have been the best to deal with and actually are right and fair. More recent I have been playing their jackpot poker, which I have won at a few times. And while I have yet to win one of their million dollar poker pool prizes, I have finished in the money more than a few times and have gotten paid every time I have ever request a check which came in less than 2 weeks, and now bitcoin which like I previously stated was 6 hours, although its usually around 48 or less from my experience. I would encourage anyone to play here or their related sites, slots.lv & bovada. I usually play bovada and ignition more than anywhere else, and that is because they both have live poker. They usually have some new games added every now and then and more recently they have updated their keno, tri-card, let 'em ride, blackjack and baccarat games. They do seem to have some great progressive jackpots and appear to payout all the time.
