Part of the well-known, respected and highly acclaimed Intercontinental Group, Casino King has been in operation since 1997 and is a quality online casino that I rate highly for its integrity and service excellence.
Besides those facts, the Casino King website has undergone a facelift and is now one that will instantly appeal to you and the Red and Gold color scheme not only carries the theme of “Royalty” through the site but is also serves to attract the eye to all the right places. Just seeing this site puts me in a good mood and that in itself makes it worth the while!
All the information you need is right at your fingertips so you don't have to hunt high and low for anything you want to know. Also, you'll notice that the site is available in a variety of languages, so if English is not your mother tongue, you have the option to view it in the language of your choice.
Welcome Bonus and Promotional Offerings
In addition to the sign up bonus, Casino King offers an additional 15% alternative payment bonus when you use InstantWT, Moneybookers, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Ukash or UseMyBank and 10% when you deposit via SOLO, BD, Click2Pay, Instadebit, or WT.
Casino King also runs a refer a friend program whereby you receive a 25% bonus on your friends first deposit if he/she makes a purchase within 7 days of receiving your invitation.
And if that's not enough, Casino King also gives out a variety of random surprise bonuses. From experience I can tell you that the casino's account managers are always very generous, so there’s no telling when you might find one of these fantastic surprises waiting for you in your account…ensure that you check it regularly!
Casino King really knows how to keep their loyal players loyal and that is with more generous bonuses more often. These bonuses are awarded to loyal players casino accounts, so there are no hoops you have to jump through to get them…you just have to play regularly.
In addition to loyalty awards, Casino King also offers a VIP program to the more important players amongst us and they really do roll out the red carpet and pull out all the stops with a dedicated VIP Account Manager designated to your account, a wide array of exclusive bonuses and promotions to choose from that are not just offered to anybody and more.
The VIP club functions on 3 precious gem levels…Emerald, Diamond and Black Diamond each with their own tailored offering and of course, we all really want to be at the top of that gem pile!!! Tempting isn't it??
Download and Registration
Casino King offers players a download version of their casino, which is great and should download very quickly as the initial file is only 457KB with additional files loading in the background. On a high-speed connection it doesn't take more than a few minutes before you're filling in your personal details on that registration form and opening your account.
Once that is done, all that's left to do is login, fund your account and play!
Casino King offers every major banking method that you can think of including all of the following: Credit Card, Neteller, InstaCash, On Demand Funds, Firepay, Central Coin, Citadel, myCitadel, Instadebit, Moneybookers, 900pay, eWallet Xpress, Click2Pay, Wire Transfer, Paysafe Card, UseMyBank, ECO Card, Solo Card, Maestro, Bankdraft and Bankdraft Express.
With that many options available to you, you won't find any excuse not to play for Real. As usual I deposited $100 via Neteller and within a minute the funds were in my casino account and I then noticed that I'd been credited with a generous loyalty bonus….YEAH!!!! With the widest smile you've ever seen I headed off to the Casino Lobby.
As mentioned earlier, Casino King is powered by Playtech software and so its games offering is almost identical to that of any other Playtech casino you've played at. Nevertheless, Casino King offers over 70 games including Table and Card Games (also with the Live Dealer function), Slots Games, Video Poker and progressives.
I had planned to go through all the games systematically but I just couldn't resist playing Gold Rally First! This is an outstanding Mining themed Progressive Jackpot Slot that really can change your fortune as it did with the last winner of $1.8 million! I decided that I could probably play Gold Rally all night and literally had to tear myself away from a winning streak for the sake of this review (*sigh*).
I always love the Playtech Card and Table games so that was at least some consolation as I headed of to the live dealer Blackjack table. Usually I don't play the live dealer versions as the game play is a little more stilted that with the normal versions but I was feeling social and in the mood for a change and really had a great time in spite of the delays and even won a few hundred dollars in the hour I played.
Next I moved on to the Roulette Tables and chose to play European Roulette (it has better odds than regular roulette) but I didn't have much luck on it and so I quickly moved on to Video Poker. Casino King offers 10 exciting Video Poker games including full play Jacks or Better and the new series of 25 hand games. I chose Jacks or Better and had a great time and a few really good hands but nothing spectacular enough to mention.
Finally it was back to the Slots, steering clear of Gold Rally I went through Casino Kings offering of classic, multi-line and unique multi spin slots with hold feature and chose Cinerama, which is a really entertaining Movie themed game and thereafter Queen of the Pyramids which is an Egyptian themed Video Slot where you try to get your hands on the riches of the Pharaohs.
Not having much luck on the Slots, although a lot of fun because they're just really well designed, I moved on the Arcade games. These always amaze me as they have offerings like Rock, Paper, Scissors (yes, like the game you played as a child) complete with virtual hands that can only make you smile. I elected to have a day at the Races and selected Derby Day and once again I was hooked. With only $100 left I tore myself away from the casino, called it even and cashed out.
This process was managed very well and in no time at all the amount was credited back to my Neteller account.
The Casino King support team is available 24/7 via e-mail, phone and Live Chat should you have any problems or queries.
They are highly trained, professional and have a quick sense of humor even when asked ridiculous questions like “Why can't I play for fun and for real at the same time?” I know this makes no sense, but I thought it would be interesting to see what their response would be. The answer came within a few minutes…”Of course you can. Although, you would need two computers next to each other and have two different logins. The one computer you play for fun and the other you can play for real :-)”. This type of humor is right up my alley, but what impressed me the most was the response time, so I can really vouch for them on this point.
Superb! My entire experience every time I've played at this casino over the years has been truly pleasant and I'm a huge fan. With great games, safe secure banking and an excellent customer support team, Casino King really is a casino that I'd recommend without hesitation.
