With a refreshing Tropical look and feel, complete with azure blue color scheme, palm trees, cocktails and more, it’s difficult for even the most jaded online casino player to resist the allure of the Casino Del Rio Offering, which is more than just aesthetic…
At the time of writing Casino Del Rio offers a total deposit bonus of 600. The first deposit bonus is 100% up to 100 if you make your first deposit via credit card OR a 200% up to 200 if you chose to deposit via an alternative payment method.
Firthermore Casino Del Rio also offers a variety of bonuses to regular players via e-mail, so make sure that you check your mailbox so as not to miss out on their various promotions and events.
At Casino Del Rio there are two ways for players to earn loyalty points either by joining the VIP Club where you will receive special perks or benefits, or simply earning regular loyalty Comp points which are awarded to regular players. These comps can then be redeemed for instant cash or real money in your player account and the longer you play at Casino Del Rio, the more these comps will be worth.
Casino Del Rio offers both a Download and Instant Play (no download, flash) version of its casino; both are high quality although the Download version does offer more games and features than the flash version. The initial download is only 307KB (the rest of the games load in the background) so it shouldn’t take too long to get going.
Once the Download and installation is complete you will need to register either a Real or Guest account by filling in a registration form containing a few personal particulars. If you’re playing for real you’ll then be able to login to the casino and fund your account, and if you’re playing for fun, you can just get started.
There are plenty of ways to deposit money into your real money account at Casino Del Rio, including debit cards, credit cards like MasterCard and Diners, wire transfers, bank draft, and others. There are also quite a few alternative deposit methods, like NETELLER, Nordea, Instadebit, and Click2Pay, which offer an extra 10–15% bonus over and above and beyond the welcome bonus.
Casino Del Rio has over 100 games to choose from, with some of the best quality Table Games I’ve seen in a while and because of that I started out at the blackjack tables. As I checked out the offering I noticed that all the Blackjack games had a betting range of $1 to $300 a hand which is quite a range and caters to every enthusiast’s pocket. The blackjack games are high quality with a Dealer’s voiceover to lend the game a lifelike feel, I really had a great time playing.
Next I moved on to the Roulette tables and once again these are superb, the graphics are amazing and the game play realistic and smooth. I was on a role for the first 10 spins but thereafter my luck ceased and I made a hasty retreat back to the casino lobby.
Next I moved on to the Video Poker machines, and while Del Rio has a reasonable number of Video Poker games, the selection is not as large as at some other casinos. I chose to play Aces and Faces Video Poker and in my third hand held a Straight Flush…earning me $250! Yeah! The subsequent hands were not as profitable but were definitely a lot of fun and after about half an hour I moved on to the Slots offering.
Again, Casino Del Rio does not have the biggest offering of Slots on the net but they still have a range including 3 and 5 reels, Multi-line, Video and Bonus feature slots. My latest favorite is Queen of the Pyramids which is an Egyptian themed Progressive slot that really is great to play and has a lot of action (not to mention the potential to win huge sums of the pharaoh’s money!). Unfortunately though I lost more than I won on this game and so I moved on and played Diamond Valley and Chinese Kitchen, also with not much luck but a lot of fun!
I then moved on to the Bonus Games and played Alchemist’s lab and Goblin’s cave which were really entertaining and a little kinder on the pocket.
Finally with $100 left in my bank balance I decided to cash in. Withdrawal requests are handled through the cashier with a number of withdrawal options available, I chose to have my cash refunded to my Neteller account as this is the quickest method. Withdrawals can stay in the pending cycle for up to five days before being processed which is not great although one can probably live with that.
Casino Del Rio’s support team is available 24/7 via email, telephone and in-game live chat. Live Chat is a quite stilted and response times not what they should be but the other methods are adequate, although you may still need to be patient.
All in all Casino Del Rio is an attractive casino that offers a good player experience and some great table games and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. While the customer support could do with improvement, there is not really anything bad to say about this casino and I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time here as much as I did.
