RealTime Gaming powered iNetBet Casino has been operation since 1999, and has proven itself to be a class act and over time I have developed a respect for their professionalism, stability and ability to run this operation.
iNetBet is primarily a “no frills – no fuss” casino that offers a straightforward gambling experience that is simple and hassle free….with ALOT less reading of terms and conditions and virtually no worrying about “hidden” requirements.
The simplicity and user friendliness is conveyed in every transaction and flows through to the design of their site which is very clean, graphically cutting edge with less of the clutter while still retaining all of the necessary information and very professional, cutting edge. You can’t help but be impressed and it just goes to show that being different can definitely work!
Being an existing member of this casino I already have a lot of experience with their promotional offering but for the sake of this review I decided to see what they were offering for both new and existing players and headed for the “promotions” page of the site.
Any information on promotional offers is current at the time of writing and may be out of date. More current bonus information can be found in the bonus area above.iNetBet offers a host of regular promotions to both new and existing players. While New players can take advantage of their sign up offers, regular players are eligible for a wide variety of current offers which range from deposit match promotions to game specific bonuses as well as improved comp offers. From experience I can tell you that these promotions are updated on a regular basis so that there is always something on offer when playing at iNetBet. You’ll find them both on the casino site and in their regular newsletters which also occasionally contain extra coupons which is great!
Like most other programs out there, iNetBet Casinos loyalty program is based on game play at the casino. Most games at iNetBet accrue comp points, so every bet you place earns you comp points. These can then be converted into real money at any time.
The great thing about this program is that you don’t have to join, when you open an account and start playing at iNetBet all ‘real money’ wagering will earn you comp points. You can also check your ‘comps balance’ at any time by going to the Bank Section of your account where they are displayed and once you reach 50 points you can claim them and receive casino cash. Like everything else at this casino…it’s as simple as that! And so it was on to getting started!
To play at iNetBet Casino you will need to download the required software from the casino site. The initial download is quite small at 191K but once installed a further 4848K needs to be downloaded which may take some time, especially if you’re on a dial up connection. However, the actual download and installation is very easy and all you have to do is follow the prompts and you’ll be well on your way to getting started.
You will then need to register an account by filling in a form which requires some personal information. You will then select a user name and password and be ready to play!
As I already have the software installed on my PC, all I had to do was login using my unique username and password and I was in the casino lobby…I then chose to play for “real”. Every time you login you will be given the option of playing for real or “play” chips which is nice if you’re a first time visitor or a little broke!
Speaking of which, my account balance was a dismal zero and so I headed to the cashier to make a deposit.
iNetBet offers a variety of funding options which include Credit Card, Neteller, Pre Paid, InstaCash, Central Coin, Wire Transfer and Click2Pay.
While you can deposit in US Dollars, Euros’ and UK pounds, for simplicity (it’s definitely their motto), all iNetBet player accounts are tracked in US Dollars. This means that when you make a deposit with iNetBet, regardless of the currency, it will be converted into US Dollars at the current bank exchange rate.
The deposit process runs quickly and smoothly and before long I had $100 in my player account and I was ready to hit the casino!
As with everything at this casino, choosing games is very straight forward as they are presented in a convenient layout according to genre (eg. Slots, Table games etc.)
I decided to start with Blackjack and after a few short clicks I found myself at the table but noticed that the table minimum was rather high, so I returned to the lobby to see if I’d picked a high roller table or something and tried a couple more, with the same result. To me this was quite high compared to the vast majority of casinos and completely contradicts the option of low minimum deposit amounts…so I contacted support to find out what was happening and was referred to the Promotions page “Wager Less” section. Once you fill in the form, the minimum bet on all tables will be $1…which is pretty cool but does take some communication to find out!
So with my lower limits I was back to the Blackjack which is really great virtual recreation and is very smooth with good graphics. I played a few really good hands and then ended up on a losing streak that seriously damaged my bankroll and even though I was enjoying myself thoroughly I decided to move on.
Next up was Let ’em Ride Poker (though I’d try my luck)…once again the gameplay was superb, however my hands were not…I was beginning to think it was a sign to step away from the tables but couldn’t resist trying out Roulette and suddenly my fortune changed and three numbers in a row came up for me which seriously boosted my balance.
I decided to carry on with the trend and purposely played Video Poker. INetBet offer a number of different types of Video Poker including classics such as Jacks Or Better and you can also choose from single and multi-hand versions of these. After playing at the tables I was a little disappointed at the Video Poker graphics which aren’t nearly as good but aren’t so terrible as to put you off completely or detract from your enjoyment. My bankroll went up and down for a good half hour and finally I ended up winning a little.
And so it was on to the Slots! While iNetBet has a reasonable range of slots, when compared to some other casinos out there, the selection may be slightly disappointing if you are a hardened slots enthusiast and the graphics are not comparable either but I decided to check them out anyway. I first tried out the Win-A-Million Slot but no…I didn’t win that! I did however enjoy it and picked up $50. I then played a couple of others but destroyed my bank balance completely!
Although my balance was zero, from past experience I can tell you that iNetBet has very fast payouts which is a big plus for them.
In addition to a detailed FAQ section on the website, INetBet offer a web-form / email support service which is available 24/7, although these options are rather limited. From my earlier query and experience I can tell you that their support is quite good and have quick, professional and well though out responses. Two thumbs up.
To summarize, I’d say iNetBet is a great place to play and caters to both high and low rollers (upon request), it has a good variety of games too with fast game speeds which is ideal for those who are as impatient as I am. Offering a fun experience, solid banking functions and professional support, I’d definitely recommend them to you.
