Desert Dollar


Desert Dollar Review

Desert Dollar is probably one of the most stylish and sophisticated Western themed websites I’ve seen, with the focal point being a gorgeous brunette in a cowboy hat which is reminiscent of something out of the Coyote Ugly movie. The rest of the site is highly attractive, designed with rich shades of blue and red which compliment each other perfectly, drawing the eye into the details, which is well written and to the point.

This professionalism is something you would expect from a Casino that is part of the acclaimed Fortune Lounge group, and Desert Dollar casino projects this air of sophistication effortlessly. Operating since 2001, Desert Dollar has grown from strength to strength over the years and from its growing popularity, one can tell its here to stay.

Welcome Bonus and Promotional Offering

Desert Dollar also offers a variety of regular promotions and tournaments for existing players as well as special weekly reload bonuses via e-mail, so make sure that you check that mailbox regularly so that you don’t miss out on some exceptional offers.


While the premise of the Desert Dollar Loyalty program is the same as most other casinos out there where the more you play, the more you earn, and the great thing about this program is that it is part of the Fortune Lounge Players Club. This means that you can accumulate points from any of the casinos in the group including Vegas Palms, Fortune Room, 7 Sultans Casino, Vegas Villa, Vegas Towers, Royal Vegas, Platinum Play and Desert Dollar under one player account.

Every member is graded on levels from Bronze to Platinum and receives a customized offering as per that level (Platinum is where you want to be) as well as ongoing loyalty points, a Birthday Bonus and more. Your Fortune Points can also be redeemed for Casino Cash whenever you choose to do so.

Download and Registration

Desert Dollar Casino offers you the option of playing on either the Download version or Instant Play Flash version, both of which are excellent quality and will ensure that you enjoy your casino experience. While the download version may take a while to load, it is worth the wait as it usually offers more games and features than the Flash version.

Once the download is complete you can choose whether you’d like to register a Guest or Real Account and then fill in all of the necessary personal information required. Once this is complete you’ll be ready to fund your account and get started.


Desert Dollar offers a variety of deposit options including Credit Cards, Payspark, Firepay, Neteller, Cick2Pay, Moneybookers and many more. Withdrawals can also be made via ACH, Neteller, checks and money wire.

I deposited my usual $100 via Neteller and within minutes the cash was credited to my casino account and I was ready to play.

Games Offering

Desert Dollar is powered by Microgaming Software on the Viper platform and boasts over 125 casino games including 13 Progressive jackpots. The games, like at most other Microgaming casinos are outstanding, featuring amazing graphics, realistic casino sounds, smooth game play and will definitely ensure that you have a wonderful time playing.

In staying with the western theme I thought a good old card game was in order and so I decided to head to the Card Games and although eh offering is impressive and includes a variety of Blackjack and Poker Games, including multi-hand versions, I decided to play Texas Hold ’em. Now I’ve never been a great poker player and although I didn’t do too badly, I didn’t do that well either and so I headed to the multi-hand blackjack table which treated me a whole lot better.

I then decided to try my luck at the Roulette Tables. Desert Dollar Casino offers four games to choose from including American, European, Gold series and Progressive roulette. I elected to play the Progressive Roulette for a change (a lot more to lose but also a lot more to gain) and for the first time in weeks I actually had good luck at the Roulette Tables finishing $500 up!

Next it was on to the Slot Games, and Desert Dollar has an exceptional range of classic, video and progressive slots to choose from. Not really being a classic slots fan (although if you are there are over 40 games to choose from, some with large maximum payouts) I headed straight to the Video Slots and played the Egyptian themed Isis for a change. After a dismal round and losing to the god’s coffers I changed to a more contemporary game in the form of Loaded which is really a lot of fun and has some entertaining features. Finally I settled on the Major Millions progressive which has huge paying jackpots, but it seemed my luck had ended and I decided to move on to the final leg of my casino journey…the Video Poker machines.

Again Desert Dollar has a wide selection of Video Poker games that will please Video Poker enthusiasts including 100, 50 and 25 hand games as well as Full pay Jacks or Better versions. I decided to throw caution to the wind and play the 100 hand game…WOW! That really is a lot to take in and after a few wild moves I wasn’t on a good footing and so I changed over to a single hand game which was slightly better.

Deciding to call it a night, I cashed in the remaining $250 of my balance back to Neteller and the amount was in my account the next day when I checked.

Customer Support

Desert Dollar’s customer support is part of the Fortune Lounge customer service infrastructure, which is one of the best in the industry. Their team is available 24/7 via toll free phone, E-mail and Live support.

The Verdict

With great games, safe banking, excellent casino support and the backing of one of the largest and well respected groups in the industry, Desert Dollar is definitely a good choice of casino for any gambling enthusiast.
