Phoenician Casino Review
“Phoenicia” from the Ancient Greek means “purple country” or “land of palm trees”. It was an ancient civilization at the Eastern Mediterranean, with unique culture, art, and an alphabet that became on of the most used writing systems in those times. If nothing else, we have to thank Phoenician Casino for being stuck on Wikipedia for half an hour.
That said, the website looks as ancient as the civilization. The casino offers you a triple Welcome Bonus worth up to €1,200, which can be used for their massive collection of Microgaming software titles. Yet you should think twice before claiming it - the wagering requirements on the first deposit bonus are x60. If you’re not getting excited already - we don’t blame you. Furthermore, this civilization isn’t ideal and is spoiled by the Casino Rewards Group’s reputation.
- More than 10 years online;
- Has several awards like Best New Online Casino and Best Casino Service;
- Mobile friendly;
- Wide collection of games - up to 550 titles.
- No live-dealer section;
- Sky-high wagering requirements (60xB);
- Part of the Casino Rewards Group.
Phoenician Casino opened its virtual doors in 2004. The casino operates under the license from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. They aid you protecting your sensitive data with the implementation of SSL encryption, which keeps all of your private information out of the hands of cyber thieves. Although, if Alexander The Great was reborn as a computer hacker, then you might be in trouble.
Phoenician Casino has a modest design, which will make us go crazy one day. They are another Microgaming exclusive casino, which ensures that your dreams of an adequate gaming selection will not be another sad disappointment. This casino is part of the Casino Rewards Group, which is known for restricting players access to their bonuses and confiscating player funds. Though this fact spoils the casino’s reputation a bit, there doesn’t seem to be many unresolved player complaints.
Customer Support: The casino offers you to use the services of the customer support that operates 24/7. Their agents can be reached via live chat and email. You can also send them your telephone number and they will call you back. Furthermore, there exists the FAQ section that can be really informative and helpful for you.
Banking: The selection of withdrawals options is not huge, but it includes most popular methods - Neteller, Skrill, Visa, MasterCard, Paysafecard and some others. The speed of payouts leaves much to be desired, as it can take up to 4-5 business days. Note that you can withdraw maximum €4,000 per week if your withdrawal amount is 5 times bigger than the total deposit amount.
Software and Game Variety
Phoenician Casino harbors a collection of games rarely paralleled online. Overall, around 550 game titles can be found here. The main and the only provider at the casino is Microgaming. In case you decide to play at this casino, you should know that in order to play the full collection of games you’ll have to download the software.
- Slots: Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II;
- Progressive Jackpot: Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile, Fruit Fiesta;
- Tables games: Vegas Strip Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Baccarat;
- Video poker: Jackpot Deuces, Jacks or Better, Aces and faces.
With a selection this size, you won’t find a need to wear pants for at least a month.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Phoenician Casino does not currently offer any live casino options, as they have yet to conform to modern demands.
On the plus side, they are fully mobile compatible, giving you complete access to their collection from any modern smartphone or tablet device. All's not lost.
We think you will find something to suit your style and gaming needs while using a mobile version.
Bonuses and Promotions
As a newcomer you’ll receive a decent Welcome Pack at Phoenician Casino, which includes a €1,200 triple bonus:
- A 50% match bonus up to €50 on the first deposit;
- A 25% match bonus up to €200 on the second deposit;
- A 20% match bonus up to €950 on the third deposit.
The wagering requirements on the first deposit bonus are very high - 60x the bonus amount. The next two deposit bonuses must be wagered 30 times. However, this bonus can be claimed once across all the Casino Rewards casinos. So, be sure to check you haven’t claimed the Welcome Bonuses from those casinos before.
