Online Casinos

This category contains reviews of online casinos that I have played or still play at. With recent changes to US legislation, the choice is far more limited for American players and most of the casinos I review no longer take players from the USA. That said, the RTG casinos (see USA Casinos) still do and they have a good array of games still. For the rest of us in Europe and around the world, the Microgaming and Wagerworks casinos offer different choices and these are where I spend most of my time.

Virgin Casino – As Seen On TV!

Posted By: Dave Letterman

I’ve always wanted to write that! As seen on TV! But now I have the excuese – one of my favourite online casinos, Virgin casino, has taken out it’s first TV advert in the UK which you can see below. For those who are unfamiliar with Virgin online csino, they have lots of IGT slot machines like “Cleopatra” (1 and 2), “Kitty Glitter“, “Wolf Run“, “Rainbow Riches“, “Pharaohs Fortune”¬†and … wait for it… many more ūüôā

Tote Casino – Instant Cashouts!

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Well it’s highly unusual to find a Playtech casino which doesn’t have a reverse withdrawal period but I found one! When you cash out from Tote Casino the money goes straight through for processing – no option to reverse and lose it which is a huge plus for me.

I use a debit card so I haven’t been able to test the speed of cashouts at Tote with eWallets like NeTeller,¬†as¬†once you have selected a deposit option that is your only option for depositing and cashing out (money laundering requirements). But no matter what you use, there is still no reverse pending delay.

Rank Group Launches G Casino

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Grand CasinoUpdate August 2011: Since this article was written, the casino has been (sensibly!) re-branded to Grosvenor Casinos and they have added a bunch of slot games licenced by Novomatic like Book Of Ra, Lucky Ladys Charm and Dolphins Pearl from the Novoline series. More info here.

The latest addition to the stable of Wagerworks casinos (IGT) is G Casino, the online incarnation of Grosvenor Casinos, a subsiduary of Rank Interactive who also run Blue Square and Mecca Bingo. Grosvenor Casino is an established brand in land-based casinos in the UK, and has been re-branded as G Casino online for some reason unknown to me.

G Casino also has a Poker offering alongside some more unsual games like Rubiks, Bejeweled¬†and the like if that’s your cup of tea. But it also carries IGT and some Novomatic slots too¬†which have a big land-based¬†following.

New Online Casino – Golden Lounge (Microgaming)

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Update (Nov 2010). Golden Lounge has been bought out by the excellent 32Red PLC and now forms part of their portfolio.

Ok to be honest, I don’t know a lot about this one yet, but I’ll update this article when I do. Golden Lounge¬†is¬†the latest in a line of¬†new¬†Microgaming casinos¬†– so no USA players – and it supports multiple languages including English (obviously!), Greek, Turkish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Japanese and even Swiss!

It launched in late 2008 with a 3000EURO “free play” signup offer to get you started, no deposit required.

iNetBet Casino – USA Accepted

Posted By: Dave Letterman

With the choices of online casinos becoming less and less for US players, I have decided to focus in on the handful of casinos I trust in this market. There appears to be plenty of choice for Americans but quite honestly, most of the casinos attacking the US market now are either untrustworthy or so new that they haven’t convinced me they are reputable.

iNetBet casino is one of the few that buck this trend, and I have had an account here for several years. It uses RTG (Realtime Gaming) software to drive it and there is a wide choice of games, in particular for online slots players the “Real Series” slots are the pick of the bunch. These are notoriously streaky, but iNetBet have the payout ratio set to a decent 95% which

Paddy Power Casino

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Paddy Power CasinoUpdate to this article, October 2011: Paddy Power has now moved the IGT games to the PaddyPower Games site and added a Playtech Casino as their main offering. This review still remains accurate although the Paddy Power Casino Review at OCUK (written in 2010) may also be of interest.


September, 2008: I’ve recently been trying my luck at Paddy Power casino (Bonus: 100% up to ¬£101), so I thought I’d share my findings…obviously with a slots focus as those are the games I play.

Gotta admit, I’ve always had a soft spot for Paddy Power, mainly because they do some amusing and sometimes plain weird promos. In fact they are responsible for my all time favourite banner – for the Cleopatra slot, one of my favourites in fact. The tagline? “The most fun you can have with a dead chick!”. It tickled me, so here I am. Actually, Cleo is an excellent slot, converted to online play by IGT and recently followed up with the not quite so good Cleopatra II. Although the latter does offer more potential for huge wins in the free spins bonus it should be said.

Cleo I is lowish variance, has the 15 free spins bonus and is probably my favourite slot at Paddypower. Closely followed by the excellent Wolf Run – another IGT Vegas slot that I’ve played

Online Casino Picks For Slots Players

Posted By: Dave Letterman

With such a plethora of online slots out there, finding the best online casinos to play them at can be a bit of a chore. So, being pretty well versed in this sort of thing, the following list of online casinos are the ones I would recommend players from the UK and Europe.

  • Spin Palace (Microgaming Software) – As I write, they have an excellent freeplay slots promotion where you get a bankroll and an hour to play all your slots with a chance to win up to ¬£200. Over 140 slots to choose from.
  • Roxy Palace (Microgaming) – Not the quickest online casino to pay out, but definately the best ongoing loyalty bonuses if you stick around. As a VIP, I often receive¬†2 or 3¬†bonuses every week of varying amounts.¬†
  • 32Red (Microgaming) – My personal favourite online casino. Another that rewards loyal players more than newbies but excellent slots again and excellent support. Also run the very popular slot tournaments on “Tombraider” and “Thunderstruck
  • All Jackpots (Microgaming) –¬†Accepts USA players too and runs the slot tournaments as above. Good reputation but better for US players by all accounts.

Casinos With Instant Neteller Cashouts

Posted By: Dave Letterman

(Updated November 2011) Many experienced online casino and poker players outside of the USA will have heard of, and probably use, the Neteller eWallet service, a free online banking service that pretty much every online casino makes use of to receive deposits and send out cashouts. Some casinos also process instant Neteller cashouts although less nowadays than there used to be.

For those that don’t know Neteller, it’s relatively easy to set up and once you are accredited (requires scans or photos of ID being sent), you can use¬†it to send and receive money to and from online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks. It also comes with a NetPlus ATM card and the ability to
