I made my deposit of $100 via Neteller and it was credited to my player account immediately and then it was off to the casino to have some fun.
Sun Palace recently changed its software provider from Playtech to RTG (RealTime Gaming) and so I couldn't wait to check out what games where on offer at the casino now. Currently the overall games offering is comprised of over 90 games including Table and Card Games, Video Poker, Slots and Progressive Jackpots. The variety within each game genre is a bit limited but you certainly won't be at a loss when choosing a game.
I started off at the Table Games because these are usually the best of what RTG casinos have to offer and those at Sun Palace Casino are no different. The Roulette Table was by far my favorite with amazing graphics, fast smooth game play and some generous rewards! I won on my lucky numbers 3 spins into the game. Next I sat down at the Blackjack Switch table and again the graphics are bright and colorful and the game play rapid and exciting even though I didn't have any outstanding hands I had a good time.
Video Poker was next and all of the standard games are offered including single and multi-hand versions up to 100 hands. I began with single hand Jacks or Better and had a really good run boosting my budget by a further $100 which meant I had more to spend on the Slots which is where I headed next.
Sun Palace offers Classic and Video Slots and as usual I gravitated towards the Video Slots as I always find them most entertaining. I played a number of rounds on Ocean Princess but had dismal luck even though the game is attractive and fun to play. I then played Aladdin's wishes but the Genie wasn't on my side so I moved on to Aztec's Treasures and finally won $50 making up half of what I'd lost on the machines before.
I finally decided to play one of the progressives and chose Diamond Mine Deluxe which is a mining themed game and then I.R.I.S 3000 but it obviously wasn't my lucky day and although my balance soared and plummeted for some time giving me the opportunity to really enjoy these games I decided to cashout my remaining $50 balance. It did take quite a while for me to receive the money back but it wasn't a huge problem for me as it's all part of my gambling bankroll and keeps me from spending too much!
Sun Palace's Customer Support team is available via Toll Free Telephone (USA and Canada only), E-mail or Live Chat. The support is of a good standard and you shouldn't have any problem getting answers to your queries.
Sun Palace is a good casino, it may not be the best but it also doesn't have any major problems which some others do. I had a great time exploring their games offering and I'm sure you'll have an enjoyable experience here too.
