Phoenician Casino Review
“Phoenicia” from the Ancient Greek means “purple country” or “land of palm trees.” It was an ancient civilization in the Eastern Mediterranean, with a unique culture, art, and an alphabet that became one 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 titles. Yet you should think twice before claiming it - the wagering requirements on the first deposit bonus are 60 times the bonus amount. If you’re not getting excited already - we don’t blame you. Furthermore, this civilization is spoiled by the Casino Rewards Group’s reputation.
- More than 10 years online;
- Certified by e-COGRA;
- Wide collection of games - around 550 titles.
- Outdated website;
- No live-dealer section;
- High wagering requirements -60xB;
- Slow payouts;
- 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.
Phoenician Casino has a modest design, which will make us go crazy one day. It is tasteless and outdated, to put it mildly. They are another Microgaming-powered exclusive casino, which ensures that your dreams of an adequate gaming selection will not be another sad disappointment. This casino belongs to the Casino Rewards Group. It 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, they have an FAQ section that can be really informative and helpful for you.
Banking: The selection of withdrawal 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 only up to €4,000 per week if your withdrawal amount is 5 times bigger than the total deposit amount across all the Casino Rewards websites.
Software and Game Variety
The main and the only provider at Phoenician Casino is Microgaming. Overall, around 550 game titles can be found here. In case you decide to play at this casino, you should know that you’ll have to download the software to see the full selection of games. They do have an instant-play version, but it looks pathetic. Anyway, let’s have a look at some of their games:
- Slots: Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II, Bars & Stripes;
- Jackpots: Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile, Fruit Fiesta;
- Tables Games: Vegas Strip Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Baccarat;
- Video poker: Jackpot Deuces, Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Phoenician Casino does not currently offer any live casino options, as they have yet to conform to modern demands.
We think you will find something to suit your style and gaming needs while using their mobile version.
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.
Bonuses and Promotions
As a newcomer to Phoenician Casino, you’ll receive a decent Welcome Pack which comes in three stages and is worth €1,200 in total. Let’s have a look at it a bit closer:
- 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.
Yep, the bonus amount is rather big, but the match percentages do not live up to your expectations. The wagering requirements on the first deposit bonus are very high - 60 times 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.
