The Vegas Slot Casino page is aptly themed and designed as one big slot machine, which is a very clever touch and sets the mood for this casino right from the start. You almost don't know where to look first, but for me the "Jackpot" button just couldn't be resisted and I HAD to click on it...this took me to the Jackpots page which has 14 progressives listed with tickers ticking away and I had to try very hard not to start playing immediately!
Returning to the home page I noticed that all the information about Vegas Slot was laid very cleverly and is easy to access and understand. Being an existing member of this casino, I do receive regular promotional mails but for this reviews sake I decided to go through my usual routine and look through the latest Bonus and Promotional offerings.
Vegas Slot Casino Bonus and Promotional Offerings
Now, not many casinos offer money for nothing but Vegas Slot Casino is currently offering a $15 no deposit bonus - No purchase required! All you have to do to receive this bonus is download the Vegas Slot Casino software, open a Real Player Account and you will receive $15 in your account within 12 hours. Players who get the initial bonus of $15 will be able to cash in after reaching an amount of $100, if no purchase was made. Also, this bonus can be used along side offerings such as the 100% Match Bonus which you are eligible for once you have opened your Real Player Account, and made your first deposit up to $100. However, to claim this bonus, you have to visit the casinos "promotion claim page" and supply your account number as well as the promotion code and only then will your bonus be credited. To me, having to this is a bit irritating but then again it if for free money, so I get over my irritation pretty quickly.
In addition to the Welcome bonuses, Vegas Slot Casino also offers a $20 bonus for purchases of $100 or more made using Neteller and FirePay. Terms and conditions obviously apply to these offers and I suggest you read them before accepting. The terms and conditions state that you are required to wager an amount equal to the purchase plus 25 times the bonus amount, which is not too bad compared with some other casinos. Other than that, there are no nasty surprises hidden in the casinos promotional terms and conditions. Under the current promotions offerings there is a link to "Loyalty", which is usually my next stop anyway, so like Alice in Wonderland and the white rabbit, I followed it.
Vegas Slot Casino has recently revamped their Loyalty program and devised a new personalized promotion wherein the more you spend, the more you gain. Every time you play as a real player and for every $10 you deposit, you will obtain one Reel point. The Reel you gain is calculated at the beginning of each month, and the relative amount of money is deposited into your real account.
Vegas Slot Casino will pay your bonus directly into your account from the 10th to the 15th of the month following the one in which you earned the bonus and an e-mail notifying you how much you have won and the amount of Reel carried over in your account will also be sent to you.
Now the thing about this is that the Conversion Rate is US$10 per 1,000 REEL...which effectively means you need to play through A LOT of money before this comes into effect and even then, you have to ask yourself is it really worth it? Probably only if you'd be playing anyway, but definitely does not inspire me to go all out, although this is just a matter of personal opinion. Knowing why I'd never really received any loyalty promotions from Vegas Slot, I decided it was time to visit the casino again.
Download and registration
As with most Microgaming casinos, Vegas slot Casino offers both the Flash and Download versions of the casino. The Flash Version is great for quick access and convenience but does lack some of the bells and whistles of the full download version, so if you have the disk space I'd recommend the latter.
Already having the software on my PC all I needed to do was run it and login. If you are a first time user and don't have the software, it will take a few minutes to download and install. Thereafter you will have the option of registering a Real Account or playing for fun, but with the $15 free promotion, you might as well go ahead and register a Real Account and use this to get started! Being an existing player, I was not eligible for the free money but had to fund my account and so I headed off to the cashier to do just that.
As you will find in the banking section of the Casino homepage, Vegas Slot Casino offers all the usual deposit options including Credit Card, FirePay, eWalletXpress, 900pay, Neteller, Citadel, Direct Bank Transfer, ECO Card, Moneybookers, PaySpark, Click2Pay, UseMyBank, and InstaDebit. Being a total creature of habit and a sucker for convenience, I deposited $100 via Neteller; although both Euro and Great British Pound options are also available should you wish to play in these currencies. My deposit was processed quickly and easily and with that, I was ready to play!
Vegas Slot Casino Games Offering
Vegas Slot Casino differentiates itself from most casinos out there on its game offering, which I already mentioned is over 250 with 180 slots. While this casino is predominantly slots focused, there are however all of the other table and card games you may wish to play on offer. At this casino is only makes sense to start with the Slots games and being an avid slots enthusiast I dove right into their offering. The Progressive Slots called me from the very beginning and I automatically gravitated towards these, pouncing on the new Mega Spin Major Millions and then graduating to King Cashalot when I wasn't as lucky as I hoped. Both are excellent games and true to its name, King Cashalot boosted my balance by $230!
Reluctantly, I moved on to check out the list of the other Slots on offer and to be honest, this casino has any Microgaming slot you can think of from the traditional 3-reels to video slots with breathtaking graphics, free spins and bonus features. I tried my hand at the Classics Thunderstruck, Big Kahuna and Tomb Raider and then moved on to Loaded and then the new releases. I was actually shocked when I looked at the clock and realized it was nearly evening already! I'd been playing all afternoon!
I decided to do a quick round of the other games on offer including the Table Games Vegas Craps and European Roulette, neither of which treated me very well unfortunately. Next it was on to the Blackjack Tables and I was impressed, with 14 varieties on offer including multi-hand versions, Blackjack fans like myself are sure to find the game the enjoy. Other card games include Baccarat and poker games like Caribbean Stud and Red Dog.
Finally it was on to Video Poker, which also offers incredible selections. All standard types of Video Poker are supported, as well as a large number of 50 and 100 hand games, which just get too much when you've spent the entire afternoon playing slots! Having a little cash left, I headed off to cash in. As expected, the process ran smoothly and two days later my money was back in my account.
Having dealt with Customer Support at this casino on numerous occasions in the past, I had high expectations on the quality and professionalism of the team at Vegas Slot Casino and I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed...my mail was answered in an acceptable time and all the issues I threw at them albeit manufactured were addressed adequately. Support at this casino is available via toll free numbers and e-mail.
