Ignition Casino is an online casino established in 2016 with games supplied by Realtime Gaming, Rival Gaming, and its own proprietary software. It is operated by Lynton Limited. Last updated: February 21, 2019.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
