Visit Casino Kingdom and you will be presented with a somewhat bizarre, parallel universe crossed between a child's fairytale and Vegas…not one of the best graphic renderings I've ever seen and especially from a Microgaming powered casino. but that is just a matter of opinion and you might disagree, especially when you see the progressive jackpot tickers totalling over $7.5 million! The casino is one I've played at before and truly is a professional outfit in every way, so I really can't complain.
Casino Kingdom was launched in June 2002 and was later taken under the wing of the Casino Rewards Group of casinos in March 2005 when it took over the Captain Cooks Casino Group. This was a very welcome occurrence as being a part of this network, you get a lot of new promotions and your loyalty will pay off in a big way. This group also goes a long way to ensure fair gaming and customer satisfaction and you will not be disappointed with the level of service you get here.
Welcome Bonus and Promotional Offerings
In addition to the sign up bonus, this casino also offers a Refer a Friend program whereby you get up to $100 at the click of a button as a reward for introducing your friends to the casino. All you have to do is fill in up to 3 friend's email address on an electronic form and they are automatically sent an email about Casino Kingdom. If they decide to join then you will receive 2,500 VIP points (worth $25) for every friend that joins and deposits $100 and wagers $1000 or more, so there are strings attached.
And if you are a regular player at Casino Kingdom you will be able to take advantage of a variety of casino promotions such as their $55,000 sweepstakes – where all you have to do is sign up to qualify. They also offer great reload bonuses almost every week so make sure you sign up for their newsletter and check your inbox on a regular basis.
When playing for Real Money at Casino Kingdom, you will be automatically signed up for the Casino Rewards VIP program where you can collect points for every time you wager, these points are then stored in a global account which means that you can play at any of their member casinos and the points collected there are also added to the single global account. You can then cash these points in for real money at any of the casinos within the network, irrelevant of where you collected them initially, this is quite rare amongst casinos and really does make this group one of the leading ones in the industry in terms of loyalty programs.
Download and Registration
Being run on Microgaming software means that Casino Kingdom is available in both Flash and Download versions, and it's really a matter of personal preference when it comes to which one you choose to play on, although the Download version does offer more games than the Flash version. If you choose to play the flash version it will load directly into your browser…simple as that. With the download version you will need to activate the download on the homepage of the casino website and then follow the prompts. The initial download is relatively fast as only the skeleton structure of the casino and a few games are downloaded, the rest then downloads in background as you play.
Once you have downloaded and installed the casino by following the prompts, you will be able to play for fun or register a real money account by providing personal details to the casino (don't worry, this is all safe and secure). Once this is done, you will then need to go to the cashier to fund your account.
Casino Kingdom offers players a number of deposit and withdrawal options including Credit Card, Debit Card, E-Check, Neteller, Click2Pay, FirePay, Electronic Check by Citadel, PaySpark, UseMyBank, MoneyBookers, ECO Card, and Wire Transfer. Deposits can be made in US or Canadian Dollars, Euros, or British Pounds and all banking transactions are monitored, audited by independent account firms and the internal Cash Check system where you can keep track of all of your deposits and withdrawals.
I made a deposit of $100 via PaySpark and my account was then credited and it was off to the casino for a night of fun and excitement.
As mentioned earlier, Casino Kingdom is powered by the latest Microgaming Viper software, offering a comprehensive suite of 168 games including all the table, poker, slots and video poker games that you would expect to find at a casino. There are a variety of Multi- player games like blackjack and roulette, including the new European Roulette Gold available as well as table and card games, with games like the new multi hand 3 Card Poker on offer. You'll also find over 20 progressive jackpots games, including the legendary Major Millions, with the latest addition, Mega Spin Major Millions having been launched recently. If you're more of a video poker fan you also won't be disappointed with their multi-hand video poker games, some of which are the profitable 100-hand variations.
With so much on offer it was difficult to know where to start but I found myself in the mood for something a little different and played Vegas craps, off to a winning start I threw 7 and then 11 and those were unfortunately my only wins for the night. Next up was Multi-hand blackjack which was a lot of fun, albeit a bit slow at times and it gets expensive if you consistently have bad hands! I eventually won $100, brought my depleting balance back up to its original number and then moved on to Video Poker, playing Aces and Eights and then Supajax.
Lastly I moved on to the slots offering. Again, you are spoilt for choice with everything from Classic Reel slots to Multi-line, Video Slots and progressives. I played Avalon, Secret Admirer and Isis Video Slots and also couldn't resist a few flutters on Tomb Raider and my all time favourite Thunderstruck. With only $50 left I decided to have a crack at the $7.5 million jackpot on the latest Major Millions Mega Spin Progressive and while I didn't hit the jackpot I won $3000 in total, which was a really great way to end the evening. Fully satisfied I cashed out and the money was in my account within 48 hours…not bad at all!
Casino Kingdom offers customer support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via toll free telephone, e-mail and Live Help. As can be expected from any casino in the Casino Rewards group, levels of service are excellent and you will always be assisted relatively quickly by a friendly customer support agent.
Casino Kingdom is definitely a casino you should try out…They have loads of special promotions and excellent support. Being powered by Microgaming, you will constantly find new games to play at and you will definitely never be bored! Who knows, you might even get as lucky as I did and win a few grand!
