Royal Vegas Casino Review
There’s a lot to like about Royal Vegas Casino, but we’re going to get to the point and bullet list its biggest attractions:
• massive selection of casino games (nearly 500)
• Flash, download and mobile game options
• fantastic welcome bonus and ongoing casino promotions
In addition to the above, Royal Vegas Casino has been serving up a fun online gambling experience to satisfied players for more than a decade, and in all of that time, none of the scandals and brouhahas that have plagued lesser casinos making bigger claims (think Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet) have touched Royal Vegas.
In short, the site provides more than a fun online gambling experience. It is respectable and transparent and is licensed, regulated and audited by the most notable security and software agencies in the industry. If you’re concerned about getting nailed by an online casino (and in the wake of the above mentioned failures and the Full Tilt Poker shutdown, it’s a reasonable fear) don’t worry…at least, not if you play at Royal Vegas.
More information on this regal site is provided below. Read it, play, and let us know if you agree with our Royal Vegas Casino review.
Royal Vegas Casino hosts nearly 500 games, with new, innovative games introduced often. Among those on its roster are the usual suspects – online slots, blackjack, video poker, craps, baccarat and roulette – as well as less frequently offered varieties like keno, Casino War and Poker Pursuit. Live dealer games are also available.
Average game payout for all of the above – audited and verified by eCogra – is 97%. In truth, 97% is nothing to write home about. It’s the approximate industry average. But when you figure in the site’s 25 jackpots (well above the industry average, and often in excess of USD $3 million), 97% kind of pales in significance. Essentially, it’s a trade off for all the benefits of playing at Royal Vegas.
Additional benefits are multi-platform gaming options. The software suite is available in flash, download and mobile formats. The latter means that you can play on your smart phone, though, if you needed this explanation it’s probably a mute point.
As far as functionality goes, the games are impressive. They are all supported by Microgaming, the software behind several of the web’s most popular casinos, so selection is vast, if not unique. Thunderstruck, Mega Moolah, multiplayer blackjack games and roulette with the most lifelike graphics we’ve ever seen are all part of the Microgaming package. What’s not part of the package is glitches. Not once during our stringent testing did Royal Vegas’ games trip up.
Royal Vegas offers some amazing slots and blackjack tournaments.
Slots fans will go nuts for the International Slots League, which brings together all members of the Fortune Lounge Group of online casinos (Royal Vegas’ network) to form a tournament player pool eligible to compete for combined weekly winnings of USD $40,000, as well as big prizes awarded in daily tournaments. Tournament options include Sit ‘N Gos and regularly scheduled tournaments.
Royal Vegas’ International Blackjack League is structured similarly. Players compete against other players in live blackjack games offered as either freerolls (you don’t pay to play) or buy-in tournaments (you must buy a seat to participate).
Both the slots and the blackjack leagues provide fast-paced, extreme entertainment for Royal Vegas players.
SOFTWARE & SECURITY
Royal Vegas Casino is supported by Microgaming software, which certifies all of its casinos 100% virus-free. It is a member of the Fortune Loung Group of online casinos and is licensed and regulated by the Maltese Gaming Commission. All online transactions employ digital encryption technology (the same encryption technology utilized by banks to secure your personal details).
Additionally, its casino games and servers are monitored and regularly audited for fair play and random outcomes by eCOGRA (eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance).
PAYMENT & WITHDRAWAL INFORMATION
The site permits more than 30 deposit methods and 10 withdrawal options. Among these are all the recognizable names – Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Click2Pay, Moneybookers and Neteller – as well as a few we had never before heard of.
Deposits are available immediately and withdrawals usually take no more than 24 hours to process.
