Vegas Country Casino is loosely based on a country and western theme (hence the name), and I say “loosely” because apart from the grand entrance to what could possibly be an upmarket saloon on the website and the odd image of a cowboy with a guitar or a pair of saloon doors here and there, this theme is not taken too seriously. This is probably a good thing as like me, not everyone is a country and western fan but from time to time it can be fun!
This casino has been in operation for a number of years and belongs to a group of casinos that were the first to start offering the new games by Microgaming and also offering a well run and professional set up. The site is well designed and laid out with all of the information you need right at your fingertips.
Being an existing player at Vegas Country Casino, I haven't really been back to the website since I joined and this was the perfect opportunity to see what had changed and take a look at their promotional offerings.
Vegas Country Casino's Loyalty Program works on the same principle as most others where the more you play the more you gain.
Every time you play as a real player, you earn points called GUITAR which are deposited as cash each month into your account. For every $10 you spend you will receive one Guitar point and the conversion rate for cashing in these points in is $10 for every 1000 points. This cash will then be credited to your player account and you'll have more to play with.
Not the most incenitivized of programs but at least there's something and it's great to get money back for your play.
Download and Registration
As with many Microgaming-powered casinos, Vegas Country offers both a Download and Flash (no-download) interface, however, I always opt for the Viper Download version where possible as it contains all available games and in my opinion, offers a better ‘entertainment factor'.
The download process is very easy and relatively quick with the initial file size being just over 5mb, although you will find that most of the games download in the background making the disk space used considerably heavier.
Once the download is complete, you can register by making use of Vegas Country Casinos very user-friendly registration form. New accounts can be created with any one of the following as denominations: US$, Euros, UK £ and Canadian $. This means that you don't have to worry about conversions rates etc. and all you have to do is think about playing.
To fund your bankroll at Vegas Country Casino you just have to visit the cashier and choose from one of the deposit methods such as Credit Card, FirePay, eWalletXpress, 900pay, Neteller, Citadel, Direct Bank Transfer, ECO Card, Moneybookers, Pay Spark, Click2Pay, UseMyBank, InstaDebit, and Ukash (Please note that some of these methods will not apply to US players at present).
Banking at Vegas Country Casino is very safe and in order to provide the greatest level of privacy and security available, they use Microsoft's SSL4 protocol with 128-bit digital encryption for all personal information and transactions.
I always use Neteller as my payment option of choice and so I deposited €100 which was automatically credited to my account and because I'm an existing player, there were no bonuses to be had and I headed straight for the casino lobby.
Being a Microgaming powered casino, one thing's for sure Vegas Country Casino's games are superb complete with state-of-the-art digital sound and 3-D graphics. They currently offer 266 casino games including Table and Card Games, Video Poker, Slots and Progressives and let me tell you it's difficult to know where to start with this kind of offering!
The Table Games were my first stop and as I mentioned the variety is amazing with a number of variations of everything from Poker, Roulette and Blackjack to Baccarat and Craps. While I do play the occasional hand of poker, I'm not really good at the game and so I tried 3 Card Poker instead and realized that there was quite a potential for making some serious profits here…If the dealer has a poor hand or even a no-qualifying hand, the pay back could be decent. Of course, the reverse is also true where a strong dealer hand is likely to win against all hands a player has in play. For the first time in my history of playing poker (or trying to) I had some great hands and I won €200 on a straight flush that I was dealt (maybe I'm good at this afterall!).
Not willing to take too many chances I decided to move on to the Blackjack tables. Looking through the variety of blackjack games listed in the lobby, I'd say that blackjack fans would be pretty impressed with the offering of single and multi-hand games at Vegas Country Casino. And when it comes to betting limits, many of the games have the low minimum of just $0.50 and a high limit of $200, so there's something for everyone. I had a few hands of Vegas Strip Blackjack and was impressed at the gameplay and pace. Not my lucky day on this one though and so I had a few spins at the European Roulette Table which were quite exhilarating and earned me a tidy €50.
Next it was on to the Video Poker games and once again the offering is quite extensive including all the regular favorites in both single and multi-hand versions (4, 10, 50 and 100 hands) and there's even the Supajax progressive which I decided to start with and inevitably got stuck on!
Finally I decided to move on to the Slots and yet again Vegas Country Casino doesn't disappoint and there's a huge selection available including single and multi-line, bonus and video slots and more are added each month. I decided to start off with an old favorite and classic Thunderstruck which I'm always lucky on and true to form I won €100. I then moved on to Tomb Raider, another classic but lost quite a bit here and so I moved on to the newer Chocolate Factory which is quite entertaining. I couldn't resist any longer and made my way to the Major Millions Progressive which offers HUGE rewards and is a lot of fun. Unfortunately though before I could hit the jackpot my bankroll was spent and I had to call it a day.
Although I didn't need to cashout anything, I can tell you from experience that this is a quick and easy process at Vegas Country Casino and depending on your withdrawal option; you will see the money back in your account within a day or two.
Vegas Country offers support 24/7 via e-mail, toll free telephone (14 numbers covering the major countries) and even better a call back facility is available where a player simply needs to request a call and a support representative will call straight back (and they actually do).
The professionalism and efficiency of their support team is beyond reproach and I'm sure you'll find the same – all very impressive!
I always thoroughly enjoy my experiences at this casino and although the bonus offering may not be the greatest, Vegas Country Casino does offer an excellent selection of games with great graphics and sound effects to really increase the entertainment factor. What's more, the key functions of the casino work tremendously well – withdrawals are processed efficiently and the support is excellent.
You might just become a country fan afterall!
