Review of Vegas Crest Casino
Vegas Crest Casino was founded in early 2014 by an experienced operator, PalauGames, that runs a bingo network that has been in business since 1996. This bingo network includes sites such as CyberBingo, BingoSpirit (formerly know as BingoSky), and BingoFest, among others. The casino offers games from a range of suppliers including Rival Gaming, Saucify and Habanero. Vegas Crest also provides punters with the opportunity to play games that they most likely have not seen in the past from a developer known as Vista Gaming.
Software and Games
While most Rival gaming casinos that we have come across in the past are available for play via downloadable software, Vegas Crest is a little different in that it only offers play online through your web browser. Nevertheless there is a very big selection of over 100 slot machines from Rival on the site. These include 5-reel video slots, 3-reel classics, and Rival's i-Slots which have interactive storylines that are revealed to you as you play. You also have the opportunity to win a six-figure progressive jackpot on one of the Rival jackpot slots: Money Magic, Strike Gold, Major Moolah, or 1,000,000 Reels B.C. Rival slot machines are colourful, varied, and fun to play, and certain games such as Scary Rich have the potential for some huge wins due to their very high variance bonus rounds. Vegas Crest also sports a collection of slots from a number of other software providers - all in all there are over 700 games to choose from.
The more interesting aspect to Vegas Crest is the set of games that are provided by Vista Gaming. This was the first time we had come across these games, and it is likely to be the same for you. Unless of course you have played in one of their bingo rooms before where the games are offered as "side games" for when people get bored of waiting for their balls to drop. It is always good to see new slots but it is fair to say that the slots from Vista Gaming won't win any design awards. The graphics are fairly simplistic, the sounds are repetitive, and the themes are all tried and tested many times before. They have Ancient Egypt covered with Sands of Egypt, pirates get a run in Princess of the Sea, the Wild West is once again visited in Wanted, and trademark lawyers will be in a frenzy when they see the familiarly spy-themed Games Bond. All in all, there are around 20 of these games, and while the quality is not high, you won't be complaining if you're winning.
Table games and video poker at Vegas Crest are all supplied by Vista Gaming. Despite my reservations about the Vista slots, I actually found these table games to be pretty good. Again the graphics are not of the highest quality but they play smoothly and have loads of options to configure the games to your preference, including the speed of the deal, sound effects, warnings against bad plays. Games such as blackjack also have keyboard shortcuts for common plays which I find to be lacking in most other softwares. All in all, you can play Blackjack, Bare-all Blackjack (a.k.a Double Exposure), Baccarat, Casino War, European and American Roulette, Pai Gow Poker, Red Dog, Texas Hold'em, along with a couple of table-based versions of video poker. Those of you that love those whacky "chain reactor" style games where winning lines explode and new symbols cascade in to take their place will also appreciate the games in the "Specialty" section such as Jewelz, Tweet Tweet and Tutti Frutti.
Banking and Customer Support
Seeing as how it accepts American punters, I expected Vegas Crest's banking system to be a bit limited. Count me surprised then to find that the casino supports a relatively large number of deposit and withdrawal methods, albeit many of which are not available to Americans. The casino accepts Visa and MasterCard deposits, payment by voucher, bank wire, or standard wire, along with e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill, and EcoPayz. Deposits are accepted instantly, and are credited to your account either with or without a bonus, which you can select before you put money in. Personally I dodged the sign-up bonus though as the wagering requirements were very high at 40x deposit + bonus which works out to be 80xB at the 100% offered.
Withdrawing money is easy as well, with paper checks, wire transfers, and bank wires being offered by the casino to Americans, and e-wallets to others. Unfortunately cash-outs are held in a reversible pending state for 2 or 3 business days before being processed, so unless you withdraw on a Monday or Tuesday you will have to wait until the following week to have your withdrawal sent. Individual withdrawals are limited to a maximum amount of $3000 paid per week. Anything over and above this amount is paid in instalments over several weeks at least. Overall, Vegas Crest is nothing special in the withdrawal department.
Customer Service is available by email, fax, and 24/7 instant online text chat, but regrettably does not have telephone support. I prefer to speak with someone verbally once in a while if I have an issue, and sometimes it is hard to get your point across when you can't actually speak to somebody. Still, Vegas Crest's staff is quite friendly and helpful, and I did not have any issues in claiming bonuses or asking about how certain things work.
Despite my automatic wariness of all things Rival, I saw nothing untoward in my time reviewing Vegas Crest Casino. The Rival games are good quality, varied and fun, and the addition of games from Vista Gaming may be attractive to Americans who have far less choice than the rest of the world. Those of you outside America are unlikely to be impressed by Vista's rather basic slots and the relatively sluggish withdrawals though. Overall it isn't the fanciest casino on the market, but it does a decent job of offering American punters something different from what they are probably used to.
The only reason I gave this casino 2 stars is because they have a huge selection of games.. I've never lost money so fast on a on line casino or as many times as I have on here. On one game 30 spins and I won 20 cents. I tried betting high and low.. I never once came up at all. Most on line casino i can play $20 for at least a hour . And I'm fine if I don't win at least I m entertained for a hour but . Here $100 gone in 15 mintues. .. I can play longer at other casinos because it won't take 30 spins to won 20 cents . Here they give me no hope I sincerely regret depositing my money here as many times as I did. I kept on thinking it will turn around with every deposit it just got worse.. I recommend wild casino. Or sports and casino.
We appreciate you playing on Vegas Crest Casino. We're constantly trying to improve the player experience and adding new games and features. Do check out our newly launched Live Casino section for some exciting gameplay!
Good site,At first glance nothing out of the ordinary, easy to use interface.
My favorite Betsoft and the odd Rival games which i enjoy like Fafa Twins and Cash Bandits slot games. Good bonus offers. No deposit plus deposit offers for trying out some games etc
Gaming: 6/10(needs more providers)
These are always just personal opinion and i always will advise to be caution and check out your casino thouroughly before depositing your money, always play safe!
Mixed reviews but am currently playing. Will update if any issues were to arrise .

The options for players in the United States are limited and most offer the same games. Vegas Crest on the other hand is one of the few that offer Betsoft games which is a nice mixup to the typical RTG games. They also offer Rival games which some might be familiar with as well. If you're into Bingo or enjoy blackjack/slot tournaments then this is a good site to try out. The don't offer the best bonus's but have some available in addition to free spins. Overall this is a good site to try if you're in the United States and tired of playing the same old games from other sites.
I've been playing at Vegas Crest for a while now- it's my favorite in terms of slot variety. I don't deposit a large amount at one time, so I always take the bonus. While I do find the daily bonuses a bit on the skimpy side compared to other casinos, they usually offer one day a week where they boost their match bonuses, so I try to deposit on that day only. Well, I finally had a good hit, and was able to complete my play through requirements, so I made my first withdrawal for $1500. I felt the $50 fee for a paper check was high, but I was super impressed with the speed of delivery! It was sent Express FedEx, and I got it in 5 days! I've had withdrawals from several other casinos, and I've found delivery time to be much slower (3-4 weeks) even if it's by wire transfer. One piece of advice- always upload your documents ahead of time. That way when you ARE lucky enough to make a withdrawal there isn't any hold-up with paperwork.
Customer service has always been great, whether it's by live chat or email. They also have the amounts of your balance set up in an easy to understand way. I was able to check under my account how much I had left to wager to reach my play through requirement, which was a big help.
Besides the terrific slot variety, they also recently added live bingo! Love the fact that great slots and bingo are on one site! I find other bingo sites usually have horrible slots.
One thing I think could be improved upon is their video poker selection. Most pay tables are very bad, and for the most part, the graphics are sub-par and the deal flow is not smooth.
If they would upgrade the video poker games, I'd make this a 5 star review.
But all in all, I'd definitely recommend this casino for it's game variety, customer service and fast pay out time!

Hello Reckless Bets,
Thank you very much for the review.
We are happy to hear that you liked the wide variety of games at Vegascrest casino, hopefully you will be luckier next time.
About Bitcoin, we use third party processors and they can charge up to 10%. This is not a charge by us, and we can't control it. Please rest assured that we are always looking to offer better options, and this is one area where we are actively looking to find a better solution for our players. We have to ensure that we use trusted banking options for all our customers at all times.
The main allure for Vegas Crest for me is the variety of games you can't find at other US-facing casinos, including the controversial (but fun) Betsoft games played with USD. You can only play so many RTG games before the boredom sets in.
I've deposited several times at Vegas Crest but haven't been lucky enough to actually clear a bonus playthrough, which seems quite high compared to other sites.
Their bonus terms and conditions are a bit clunky, setting a max bet of $5 OR 10% of the bonus amount, whichever is lower. To me this seems a bit predatory and could easily be integrated into their website system to clearly state the max bet allowed when making a deposit, but alas its buried deep within their T&C.
I can't comment on withdrawal speed since I haven't made one, but the options and limits seem standard. The one thing I'll point out that I find particularly egregious about Vegas Crest is that they charge an insane 10% fee on Bitcoin withdrawals. Whereas most US-facing casinos encourage Bitcoin with no fees, Vegas Crest charges the absolute highest fee I've ever seen. Can you imagine a $200 fee on a $2000 Bitcoin withdrawal? I can't for a cryptocurrency.

I am sorry to ready that you have not been so lucky while playing at our casino. Please note that games on VegasCrestCasino are not owned by our Casino but are provided by games providers such as Betsoft Gaming, Rival, Mobilots, and others.
Therefore, as the games do not belong to us, we definitely do not have control over how the winnings are distributed by each machine. All games use a random number generator (RNG) developed by the provider and each machine guarantees a return to player which usually ranges between 92% to 97%.
Each machine is different and the return to player percentage is distributed back to players randomly (based on the provider’s RNG)

Thank you for your kind words. We are happy to know you are satisfied with our service and strive to exceed your expectations, always.
I have been playing online casinos for many years and have only won enough to request withdrawals from 4 or 5 but Vegas Crest is now officially my favorite after receiving a package today with my check in it. I can't believe how fast I got it. Less than 10 days and before I even had to inquire about it. Every other casino took like 10 emails and some took way over 30 days. So if you're
looking for GREAT WITHDRAWAL TIME this is the casino for you. Thank you Vegas Crest
I was very disappointed in this online Casino. For some strange reason. They denied my Card. A valid debit card that I use at Casinos. They gave me no reason. It was an insult. Like my money is not good enough. After reading the reviews. It was in my best interest. I wanted to play the game. Traces of Evidence. Nothing wrong with my card. I hate when people deny u for no reason. NEXT
Dear CymruSpinner ,
than you for the positive review, at the time we no longer take UK players , but was a pleasure to have you around.
Sorry to hear that feel that you have not experienced the same great casino action that so many of our players enjoy. Our Casino manager will be contacting you directly to see how we can improve your playing experience.
Please rest assured that all of our game providers games are industry regulated and certified, ensuring complete fairness at all times.
DO NOT PLAY HERE. They've got it locked up tighter than a _____(insert something so tight it makes diamonds). Everytime I want to take a break and play a game, 3 minutes later. 75$ gone. EVERYTIME. 3 minutes. $75 gone. We're not talking once or twice here. I'm the idiot for putting money back into it thinking it will even out. It doesn't. Bllink and it's gone even at minimum bet. Also no codes, no working codes if they do have them. A DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN. Watch it go bye. Don't be an idiot.

Vegas Crest Casino
With so many casino sites to choose from in the UK, I thought I would try something different from my normal sites. I saw the review for Vegas Crest Casino here and gave it a try. First impressions count and the site looked well laid out with easy access to the games I wanted to play. It was good to see a big selection from lots of different software providers, not just the same old games as I have previously found on other UK sites. I have only deposited once with £10 so far (limited playing budget) but I must say that it has been fun. I contacted customer services through the live chat / talk option on the site to confirm that if I won, that I could get paid in the UK. They were helpful and told me that they have many UK players that make withdrawals all the time. Unfortunately, all my wins were played through, so I have not had chance to test this yet lol
Overall I would rate Vegas Crest as a 8/10 so far… I will be back to play more when funds allow (the wife) as the site is definitely a big improvement on the other sites that I usually play on.

Thanks for the great feedback, your satisfaction means a lot to us!
Vegas Crest casino,
i never had one good experience with an Rival casino, because they don't pay players who win from free bonus or even with there own money! well i got an free bonus 10$ and had so much luck that after wagering had an terrific 1200 dollar of real cash, sadly but acceptable max withdrawal i could make was 100dollar, i accepted this. i made a 10 deposit trough skrill shortly after winning this, and withdrawal this 100 dollar, fee i think is very high 10$ fee on every withdrawal this is way too high, for me didn't matter since i had money enough but it's really too high! after several emails send i received funds after 4 days, i think this is quite slow, but positive thing was they check and approve documents within 1 hour! this was really fast and good! support was also fast and informative! first good experience i had here with Rival as gaming provider! good work from vegas crest;)

Vegas crest casino have rival software, and this software have some interesting games, also casinos with this software usually absolutely not greedy about bonuses and promotions, and you can get lot of different and interesting offers here. Also speaking about rival slots, there is great thing that during freespins with multiplier if slot game has bonus game inserted, winnings in bonus games also multiplier by freespins multiplier, i did not see such thing in any other software, at least netent 100% does not offer thing like that and microgaming too. Couple of my deposit in this casino was quickly burnt playing with too high bets, also i was able to get couple of no deposit offers, but everything was without luck for me. Casino saw this and keep send me good offers, but after about 7-8 losing deposits i decide stop making deposits because place is exactly not lucky for me. Live chat was good for me, speak only couple of times regarding bonuses and promotions, and everything was OK for me, no any problems. Regarding withdrawals i have nothing to say , sorry because like i said i did not win after couple of deposits and freechips also did not help me to win.

Vegas Crest is a new casino that I had no idea even existed until I was able to see it here on CL. I like the fact that Vegas Crest offers Rival games, as I am quite sick of playing RTG games at almost every casino I visit. The games are a lot of fun to play, and I really like a lot of the strange looking titles that I saw here.
I think that the intro no-deposit code is a bit of a joke when other sites like High Noon are offering $50, but I can't really complain. Bonuses also have insane rollovers, and I wouldn't even attempt to play with them.
I found deposits to be quite easy, but I ended up losing all of my money and thus was unable to attempt a withdrawal. If you're looking for something different than the norm, I would give Uptown Aces a try. The casino isn't great, but it isn't bad either. Just don't attempt to claim any of the bonuses.

I really enjoy playing here. I haven't deposited at any casinos in a long time but decided to try this one because I play Bingo at Cyber and this is a sister site. I have won about 5K over the last month with Vegas Crest. The payouts are a little slow but they do pay.
Vegas crest online casino it is very good rival casino, which appear not so long ago. It is does not offer any no deposit bonus for new players, but this was not a problem for me, i am always like to try new casino, most new opening casinos is very good. So i am ready to share my experience with this online casino, like always at first you will see pluses.
+ Software. I did not use instant play of course, there is presented not all games from this supplier, i download application and did not had any troubles with this software, everything was very good in my experience, and my gameplay was more than OK, i can even call it perfect.
+ Customer support. I did not use phone or email support, only live chat, but looks like their live chat CS working 24/7, and therefore it is really easy to get help in this casino, very good!
+ Bonuses and promotions are typically very good for rival casino. I have a lot of bonuses in my cashier, but unfortunately not so many freechips offers, but probably because i played only few times.
And one minus.
- Withdrawals is a minus, because my single withdrawal of 70$ took 5 days.
Very good rival casino.
