The word Maple inspires images of the Canadian Flag in most people’s minds. Bearing that in mind, Maple Casino has carried their strong Canadian theme throughout the website, which is designed in the traditional Red and White and comes complete with Maple leaves and Moose. It makes you feel like saying “How’s it going eh?”
Don’t be deceived by the Canadian theme though, as this casino is not only for Canadian Players, although it does cater to this market. It has gained worldwide popularity and has international visitors on a daily basis. Part of the highly respected Vegas Partner Lounge group, this casino has earned a great deal of trust and credibility despite being a relatively new casino in the industry and one thing is for sure, it’s thriving!
In addition to the generous welcome bonus, Maple Casino offers players an Initial Match Bonus on your first deposit. In addition, you will also receive a selected amount of free spins on one of their most popular 5-reel video slot games. Maple Casino also offers an array of Tournaments for players who want to play against other players in play-offs and competitions.
These multi-player tournaments run every day. There are also weekly and monthly tournaments, some of which are free rolls. I would imagine that players who enjoy the interactivity of playing with other players for real-time rewards would enjoy these tourneys.
This casino seems to be a fan of running promotions and competitions at random, so you could find a surprise or two waiting for you when you log in to the casino.
The Maple Casino loyalty program operates pretty much the same as most loyalty programs out there where you earn points for every $10 you bet and then these can be redeemed for Casino Cash. So the more you play, the more you earn. As soon as you register a Real Player account, you will automatically be added to the loyalty programme. You will also receive 250 loyalty points just for joining! Not bad at all.
Whether you prefer the Instant Play (Flash) or Download version, Maple Casino is able to accommodate you with both. If you find that the download is too much for you, Maple Casino also provides a free software CD, which you can order directly from the website. The only problem with this is that you have to wait to get it before you play (unless of course you opt for the Flash version in the meantime). However, it is only 500kb to download, so it is definitely worth it.
I always download casinos where possible and this one was no different. If I recall correctly, it didn’t take more than a few minutes to download and install the casino (although I was using a broadband connection).
Once you’ve completed the download or opened the Flash version in your browser, you will need to register a Real Player account by filling in a registration form with certain personal particulars. Once this is done, you’ll be ready to login to the casino.
You can see just how far Maple Casino caters to the international market in their banking options as these include methods from all over the world, including: Wire Transfer, Neteller, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, EZ Pay, UseMyBank, Solo/Switch/Delta Cards, Credit Cards, iDeal, Citadel, Ukash, and Paysafe Cards. Players can also deposit US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Great British Pounds or Euros.
All transactions are perfectly safe and secure so I didn’t think twice about depositing $100 using my Neteller account. Shortly thereafter the money was credited to my casino account and I was off to the Casino Lobby to check out their games offering.
Powered by Microgaming on the Viper platform, Maple Casino has a good variety of over 550 games to choose from and these are efficiently laid out within the casino lobby according to their game genre. As with all Microgaming games, the graphics are state-of-the-art, the sound quality is amazing and you’ll be amazed at how entertaining the game play is.
Maple Casino offers large varieties of Table and Card Games, Video Poker, Progressive Jackpots, Reel and Video Slots. I decided to start off with Video Poker, instead of my usual favourite, and selected a multi-hand version in the form of Double Joker 50 Play Power Poker. This game is a lot of fun and really keeps you busy: it is a fast-paced and fun-filled game. Only thing about this game is that you can either win or lose more than you usually do on Video Poker and if you happen to be on a losing streak your money doesn’t last as long as it usually does on normal Video Poker.
Next I decided to move onto the Table and Card Games, and while the selection was overwhelming, I finally settled on a good old fashioned game of Atlantic City Blackjack and did I have fun! My first three hands were winners, the next two busts and then I had another winning streak. Running on adrenaline I decided to try out a multi-hand game and chose Multi-hand Vegas Strip Blackjack, which once again was superb, great when you’re winning but expensive when you’re not.
I skipped over the other table games which include the usual favorites like Roulette, Poker, Baccarat, Casino War (amongst others) and made my way to the Slots section of the casino lobby. I’m not really a Reel slots fan, but if you are there are plenty of games to choose from. Instead I decided to stick with the Video Slots and played the gangster-themed Loaded where I won $300. I also tried my hand at Big Kahuna, Genies Gems, and my all-time favorite, Thunderstruck.
With $20 left in my bankroll I decided to go all or nothing on the Progressive Slots, hoping that Tunzamunni would give me just that! Unfortunately it didn’t, so I had to wrap up my session.
Maple Casino offers 24/7 support via E-mail, Toll Free Telephone and Live Chat and it boasts a friendly and efficient team that will help you with whatever query or problem you may have.
Maple Casino is a great place to play and you don’t have to be Canadian to have fun here. Being a Microgaming casino, the games are excellent, as are the service and banking facilities. No wonder Maple Casino is doing so well…I would definitely recommend this casino to anyone.
