Review of VegasCasino
In my many years of reviewing internet casinos, I have come across some sites with funny and strange names, but I do not know if I've ever come across one that is as generically named as VegasCasino. When I first heard the name I instantly thought I had been there before, so I headed to the CL database to verify whether I had or not. There are several others with confusingly similar names, but to my surprise this is indeed a new site operated by BlueMay Enterprises N.V., who are also responsible for 7Red Casino. Despite the generic name, the casino has an array of features that make it anything but ordinary.
Software and Game Selection
When you first visit Vegas Casino, you'll notice the huge video board that makes you feel like you're right on the Vegas Strip. The layout of the site is very attractive, and has a polish that I haven't seen on a new casino in quite some time. The casino's software is a browser-based platform running games from Net Entertainment, Play'n Go, Yggdrasil, and BetSoft Gaming, meaning that you will find a large array of slots to play. The site allows you to register, deposit, and play all within your internet browser. The process of registering an account was relatively painless, and I was all set to begin playing within a few minutes.
There certainly are a large number of video slots to play at VegasCasino, with the above-mentioned developers providing ample choice. There are a series of 3D, licensed, and original slots on offer, and you can easily find your way through the games using a search bar or the "traditional" thumbnail layout. There are plenty of progressive jackpots available, giving players the chance to win prizes worth several thousand all the way up to several million Euros on well known slots like Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights, and Hall of Gods. Classic slots are also front and centre, giving players the chance to play roughly two dozen classic style games.
It should be noted that VegasCasino does boast a strong mobile platform, that allows you to play through your smartphone and tablet, and the slot library is much more diverse on the small screen than the table games are. Speaking of table games, there are a large number of games available, with several varieties of blackjack, poker, roulette, and roulette available to be played. The big highlights here though are the live dealer games, which pit you at a table with a real dealer who is webcasted onto your computer screen from a dedicated studio.
Banking, Bonuses and Customer Support
Banking at VegasCasino is good, albeit a bit limited in terms of withdrawal options. Players can deposit via eWallet, vouchers, credit cards and wire transfer, while withdrawing is limited to just wire, Skrill and Neteller. Minimum deposits at the casino are €10, while withdrawals under €150 attract a hefty €10 service fee. On the positive side, once you are verified you can expect to be paid via e-wallet within 48 hours in my experience.
Similar to its sister casino 7Red, this casino has a commendable policy of not attaching any wagering requirements to their bonuses. Each bonus is non-cashable (i.e. you can wager but not withdraw bonus funds) but you are able to play any game in the casino with your bonus and you can withdraw at any time. In these days of bonuses with massive wagering requirements, game restrictions and wager size limits, you won't find a more flexible bonus deal than this.
Customer service at Vegas Casino is very good, with the site providing 24/7 round the clock support through email, telephone, and instant messaging. I popped into a quick chat session with a rep, and found the time for assistance to be reasonable.
Security, Fairness, and Responsible Gaming
VegasCasino holds a license to operate an online casino from Curacao eGaming. Player information transfer is secure, given that your communication with the casino is protected using SSL encryption at all times. This applies to the first time you visit the site, as well as when you register, deposit, play games, or withdraw money from the site.
Auditing of game fairness is carried out by Technical System Testing (TST), a company that conducts mathematical tests on the random number generators used by games of chance. I found a claim on the site that this casino "offers an average payout of 98.43%". However there are no supporting statistics or published payout audits to support this dubious claim. You can check the theoretical RTP numbers for the games supplied by several the site's developers such as Net Entertainment or Play'n Go in the games themselves.
Similar to most casinos that are loosely regulated by Curacao, responsible gaming is not really a priority at this casino. The site does dedicate a typical page to the topic, but there are no controls inside your player account to set limits on deposits or playtime, or self-exclude yourself if you need to. Most European licensed casinos are obligated to provide such controls as part of their licensing conditions these days, so it is disappointing to see a casino that doesn't live up to the same standards that I have come to expect.
I have to say that I am quite impressed with VegasCasino. If you have played at the operator's other site 7Red then you will know exactly what to expect, as this casino is more or less a "skin" of its sister casino. The game library is deep, the platform is slick, the bonus policy is excellent, and there is plenty to keep you entertained. However there are flaws in this operation that cannot be ignored, namely the small number of withdrawal methods and the fees on small withdrawals, and the lack of any sort of self-administered responsible gambling controls.
