Casino Las Vegas marked my first visit to a Playtech powered casino, and I was very interested to see how the software, promotional offerings and customer service compared with the other casinos out there.
At first glance, Casino Las Vegas does not inspire uncontrollable excitement like many other casinos do and is perhaps, visually a little too ‘green' for my taste, but their reputation within the industry is one of excellence and once your eyes adjust, their impressive array of language offerings including English, German, French, Russian, Italian, Swedish, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Greek, Turkish, Portuguese, Dutch and Polish as well as their $400 Welcome Bonus is definitely a great deal larger than many I've seen and makes this casino all the more inviting…
However, the current $400 welcome bonus offering is for a limited time only and upon inspection of the Terms and Conditions attached to it, one soon learns that you do not receive $400 on your first deposit. Rather, the $400 is split up over four deposits, which means that on your first deposit of $100 you will receive $100 free. Thereafter you will qualify for another three 100% bonuses up to $100 providing that you have less than $1 in your account before your next deposits and have not requested a withdrawal; this applies to all three subsequent deposits. Also, these bonuses must be claimed within 10 days of your initial deposit, so just be prepared. This offering may or may not appeal to you, depending on what you're looking for…
It's all pretty much the same to me, so I went ahead and opted to download the casino even though you do have the option of playing on the no download Flash version of it, which was surprisingly quick and easy. I managed to download the entire casino and register a Real account in just under 5 minutes. I then made my first deposit via Neteller (making me eligible for an additional 15% deposit bonus up to $50) but other deposit options include Visa, Mastercard, Firepay, InstaCash, on Demand Funds, Central Coin, Citadel, myCitadel, InstaDebit, Moneybookers, 900pay, eWallet Xpress, Click2Pay, Wire Transfer, Paysafe Card, UseMyBank, ECO Card, Solo Card, Maestro, Bankdraft & Bankdraft Express, some of which also have extra deposit bonuses attached.
Right after my deposit was made, my Welcome bonus was instantly credited to my account which was very impressive and a refreshing change from the usual wait imposed by other casinos. The wagering requirements attached to the bonus are a playthrough of 12 times, which is not unusual and seems quite fair to me so I headed off to the Casino Lobby to check out the 60 games on offer.
Casino Las Vegas has been one of the Playtech leaders in new gambling technology and was one of the first to offer Live Dealers for their games. As I entered the casino, a customer representative welcomed me to the casino, wished me luck and told me that if I needed anything he'd be available to answer or attend to any questions or issues I may have while playing at the casino. The warm welcome was a great way to start off my play and as usual I headed straight for their slots. Being my first visit to the casino, I wasn't familiar with many of the slots on offer which include Video, Multi-line, single line and progressive slots. I decided to go through a couple of them starting with Goblin's Cave and Captain's Treasure Video Slots which immediately caught my eye and then moved on to Fruit Mania and Magic Slots progressive jackpots, all of which totally different and maybe not as graphically superior as the games I'd played elsewhere, yet were still highly entertaining. In general, Casino Las Vegas' slots can be played for as little as $0.05 up to $5, which provide quite a range of coin sizes and ensure that you can enjoy hours of exciting entertainment even if you're on a budget.
I then moved on to play Video Poker, whose coin sizes range from $0.25 to $5.00 per hand, and are probably the most familiar to me. Their offering includes variants of Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better, which are all highly enjoyable and decidedly more profitable for me this time round than the slots had been.
After some time I moved on to the Card and Table Games which for me were the best games of the casino, and some of which include Live Dealers, which was definitely a treat and something out of the ordinary for me.
The contact I had with the casino support all the way through my game play was nothing short of outstanding and whenever I needed something or had a question, support was only a phone call, fax or e-mail away, with e-mails usually being answered accurately in around 10 minutes. This group genuinely seems to have your best interests at heart and always go the extra mile to ensure that you enjoy every minute of your gaming experience with them. This is particularly evident in their promotional offerings which include Treasure Chest Loyalty awards, surprise bonus offerings on regular play, and referral bonuses when you invite your family or friends to play at the casino.
After a truly positive experience all round and with all that this casino has to offer, including a truly unique design, entertaining games and outstanding service, I would definitely recommend this casino. Users of smartphones also might want to give the mobile version (Casino Las Vegas Mobile) a chance!
