Powered by Microgaming and eCogra certified, Mummys Gold Casino has been in operation since 2002 and was acquired by the prestigious Palace Group who added it to their already successful portfolio which includes the likes of the highly acclaimed Spin Palace and Ruby Fortune casinos.
Visit Mummys Gold casino and you'll be met with a brilliantly designed Egyptian themed site, complete with pyramids and wicked looking Mummy all with a casino twist thrown in. The site exudes professionalism and fun, a combination that in my opinion is not easy to achieve, but somehow the Palace Group has done it again!
Another thing you'll always hear players at Mummy's Gold Casino discussing is the novelty of their ongoing promotions, which once again add that extra touch of excitement to an already fantastic all round offering. These are usually syndicated through their regular Player Newsletters (which you can subscribe to) but some are available on the site. Curious to see what first time players were offered though, I decided to check these out.
Mummy's Gold casino has many regular promotions on offer which are considerably more attractive and will definitely encourage your loyalty; these include (at the time of this writing!) a $1500 weekly progressive Slots competition, a $1500 weekly Video Poker competition amongst others. Also, be on the lookout for newsletter promotions where occasionally you can win trips to Vegas or guide the Mummy through the Pyramids for a share in a $4500 prize or compete in their Slots or Blackjack spot competitions and so much more. These really make playing here a lot of fun!
Loyalty – Casino VIP
The Mummy's Gold Casino rewards program is designed pretty much like most others out there based on the principle that the more you play they more they pay. You gain automatic entry into this program and begin on the bronze level status, as you play you will accumulate Loyalty points which are then redeemable for cash and play on your favorite games.
The Mummy’s Gold Casino Player's club consists of 5 levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond level. As mentioned above, loyalty points are awarded automatically according to your play and the more you play, the faster you'll advance through the levels, and the more your rewards will be worth. You can check your Loyalty Points at Mummy's Gold Casino online as well as redeem your points there all by logging in to your account.
Having been a member at this casino for some time now and currently a Platinum member, I can definitely assure you that this is a great program and well worth your play at Mummy's Gold.
Download and registration
Getting started at Mummy's Gold is a very simple process…you can either play at their no download, instant play Flash casino or as I prefer, on the download version which usually has more games and features but also requires disk space on your PC. In order to download the casino, just click on the “download” button and follow the prompts.
The complete download and installation process should take only about 10 minutes to complete if memory serves me correctly and from my experience is a totally problem free process. Once the download has been completed you can elect to play in either fun mode or for real money. To play for real money you will have to register your details to open an account which shouldn't take more than a few minutes. You will then have a username and password of your choice which you will need to use every time you play. Thereafter it's on to the cashier to make your first deposit.
Being an existing player at Mummy's Gold casino I already have the software on my desktop and so just headed directly to the cashier to make a deposit.
As with most Microgaming casinos, Mummy's Gold casino makes use of a highly secure, digitally encrypted banking function, supported by the top processors in the industry to ensure the safety and security of your online transactions. For me, this goes a long way to ensuring my peace of mind and letting me know that there is nothing to worry about except having fun!
As usual I elected to make my deposit via Neteller but upon examining the list of banking options available, discovered that Mummy's Gold also offers Click2Pay, Citadel and Credit Card as deposit options. My deposit of £50 was processed quickly and credited to my player account and so I was ready to get started with the games.
From experience I can tell you that Mummy's Gold Casino offers players a very well rounded gambling experience. Mummy's Gold casino currently offers over 150 games with betting limits to suit most players, add to this the fact that they are powered by Microgaming on the Viper platform and you're sure to be delighted with what are probably the best games in the industry.
Once in the casino lobby you will find every genre of game you could possible hope for, including all of your classic favorites and more. And with new games being launched continuously, you will never get bored.
Visit the games lobby of the casino and it's difficult to know where to start, there is a huge variety to choose from with everything from single and multi-line slots, to table and card games with some very unusual variants.
I decided to kick this round of play off with the Video Poker games for a change, and once again, the sheer number of variants is quite amazing. Whether you want to play single or multi-hand games, you're sure to find them here. I decided to start off with Aces and Faces Power Poker and yet again there were at least four versions to choose from with 4 to 100 hand games. I chose the 10 Play game and after finishing up on that decided to try the 100 Play version which becomes decidedly more expensive when you lose. I then tried my hand at Deuces and Joker Poker and to my delight had a brilliant few hands and ended up winning $2000…yeah!!!!
Next I moved on to the Blackjack and played one of the many versions called “Double exposure” where the wagering is $2 a hand. After a couple of hands it was clear that I wasn't going to win on that game and so I played Atlantic City Blackjack but didn't have much luck and so I checked out the other table games on offer including Roulette (European and American), Poker Pursuit (which I'm terrible at!) as well as Baccarat, craps which proved to be pretty lucky for me this time around, and finally Sic Bo.
Last of all I decided to enjoy a couple of spins on the Slots, being a Video Slots fan I started off in that section and having played the new games a couple of times already I decided to start off with something a little different…Chocolate Factory which seems to be loosely themed on the book “Charlie and the chocolate factory” and is just as delightful. I also tried out the Major Millions progressive which just seemed to gobble up my cash making me realize that I was actually responsible for increasing that jackpot on the ticker! Finally, I just couldn't resist playing the classics Tomb Raider and then Thunderstruck, which I ended up getting stuck on for a good couple of hours!
I eventually decided to call it a day and cashout my winnings of $500 in total. After requesting a cashout, the money was back in my account within no time.
While I have heard some mixed reports about their customer service, my questions and queries have for the most part been met with prompt and professional responses and good service.
The Mummy's Gold support team is available 24/7 via Live Chat, online form and e-mail, should you need to contact them for any reason.
All in all the Mummy's Gold casino experience is a great all round one. Not only do they have an excellent games variety but they have a great promotional and loyalty program to support it. This casino is definitely a great addition to the Palace Group and I'm sure you'll enjoy every minute here as much as I did.
