Reel Vegas Casino Review
Vegas for the Vegas god, reels for the throne of reels! We felt that we need more of original casino names, and these guys came just in time. As you can see, now we're dealing with one more Vegas casino that claims to provide reel Vegas-like gambling experience. We can't say that the Reel Vegas Casino impressed us so far, especially with its website. You can never be sure about such casinos, that claim to be mobile-oriented: are their websites and their game libraries so below average because they're all about mobile devices, or it's just a trick to justify the lack of funds and efforts. The list of software providers includes such loud names as Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, and Blueprint, but the game library is limited to 250 titles. The casino is licensed by Gibraltar and the UKGC and runs on the Nektan platform. The Welcome Offer is a deposit match up to €400. It would be much better if it weren't cut into three pieces, first of which is a welcome bonus and is a 100% match up to €100 + 50 free spins on Starburst. The wagering requirements are 30x(D+B), and the winnings from bonuses are capped at 5x the initial bonus amount. There are few other odd terms on bonuses, be sure to check the full review before making your decision on this casino. If you ask us - it's a decent place to play slots on mobile devices, but if you're a desktop player - you surely can find a much more exciting casino.
- Licensed by the UK and Gibraltar
- Fully mobile compatible
- Phone support
- 19 reputable software developers
- Too high wagering requirements
- Many tricky terms about max withdrawals, max winnings and the bonus WR's
- No Video Poker section
Reel Vegas Casino is oriented on mobile gamblers mostly, so if you're the one - try to keep cool and don't get too excited. They offer an average-sized game library, but the software providers are outstanding. Still, some of the top titles are missing, in the Microgaming section, for instance. Maybe they're about to update the library, but now it doesn't look impressive. The casino is licensed by the government of Gibraltar and the UKGC, which is good enough to be sure that they can adequately resolve any possible issue. The Reel Vegas Casino's RNG is certified by NMi, and it means that the RTP rate of their slots is correct, and you'll get a fair outcome from any given game. The website security certificate from McAfee states that the website itself is free from any malware, and your transactions will remain private.
It looks pretty bland and is just a landing page, because as soon as you register - you're being redirected to the Nektan game lobby. The lobby itself is also not the best one that we saw, and it's stuffed with the Reel Vegas logos on the background, so you don't forget where you are. The navigation is okay, though - they have every possible filter, starting from basic casino sections and ending with the filters by software, popularity and the size or frequency of winnings. There are no significant drawbacks that we have to point out, except few strange clauses about the bonus Wagering Requirements and the max payout. We will clarify them below.
There are no significant drawbacks that we have to point out, except few strange clauses about the bonus Wagering Requirements and the max payout.
Banking: At the Reel Vegas Casino you can withdraw through many methods, including credit cards, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafe Card and few others. The withdrawal time is not very impressing: all payouts are subject to 72-hour pending period before the transaction even starts.
Customer Support: The Customer Support service can be reached via live chat, e-mail, and phone number. Unfortunately, there is no information on support service's working hours, as well as on whether is a phone number toll-free or not. Our attempt to contact a support service went clear and smooth, and the support agent knew the answer to all our questions.
Software and Game Variety
Game variety surely isn't the strength of the Reel Vegas Casino. They have something about 250 games, and it's not enough to please us, especially when the top casinos offer up to two thousand games. Still, it might be enough for someone, and the software choice is truly rich: there are 19 software providers to pick from, such as NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen, and Blueprint. There you'll also find lesser companies, like Elk, Scientific, and Iron Dog, whose games are cool, but not so popular and abundant as the production of top-tier companies. Here are some titles that you could have seen:
- Slots: Starburst, 300 Shields, Moby Dick, Ted;
- Table/Card Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Hi-Lo, Hold'em;
- Other Games: Boss the Lotto, Spinlotto, Diamond Deal.
The Video Poker section is missing, as well as the Baccarat games in the Casino section.
Mobile and Live Games
As a mobile-oriented casino, they have an entirely compatible mobile version, and it works fine on all popular mobile devices. They also have the Live Games section, but it's not the thing to be proud of. There are eight live tables, but they all are the different versions of Roulette and Blackjack, with no other options. Not very impressive, but at least they have some live games.
Bonuses and Promotions
At Reel Vegas Casino, you can get a Welcome Package for your first three deposits. The whole package is up to €400, but the first deposit bonus is a 100% match up to €100 + 50 Starburst spins. Not the dream-offer, but looks ok. The WR's are shitty: the casino wants you to wager 30x the amount of the deposit + bonus. The bonus winnings are capped at five times the initial bonus amount. The interesting shit is that some clauses in the T&C are canceling each other. They say that the max daily payout is €2000 and the max monthly one is €5000. At the same time, they state the max payouts at €10000 for all banking methods except vouchers. One more thing:
The maximum pay-out on our games is €250,000.
This is an exact quote, and there's no word about progressive jackpots. At the time of writing, there were at least two progressive slots with the jackpot amount over €500 000, so the question is: why? Does the Reel Vegas Casino offer you the jackpot that you can't withdraw in case of winning? The last one is about the Bonus Wagering Requirements again. The thing is that the wagers made from your real money balance don't count towards the WR's. At the same time, the casino doesn't state whether the other bonus-related terms are applied when you play with your deposit, and have the bonus not wagered yet. All in all, the casino looks not very friendly, when it comes to bonuses.
