Vernons Casino Review
Vernons Casino is an abomination that should have died long ago. It desperately needs to update the in-game variety, website design, and promotions. They have games from Playtech, IGT, Betsoft, Quickspin, and some other providers, but the titles are not very impressive. The brand exists for almost a century, and the only thing they managed to learn in these years, is how to take more and give less.
Vernon's Casino is unique because it’s the only casino where you’ll pray about not hitting progressive jackpot. If, despite your ardent prayers, you hit the jackpot - you’re screwed, because these guys decide in their sole discretion whether they’ll share it with you or just appropriate the whole amount. Oh, and they have no Welcome Bonus at all - so you can enjoy playing without any wagering requirements.
- UK license;
- More than 6 software developers;
- Almost a century of experience;
- Round-the-clock live chat;
- Predatory terms about the progressive jackpots;
- Low withdrawal limit - €5,000 per month;
- Outdated website;
- No Welcome Bonus;
- Poor choice of live games.
A wise man said that satiety isn’t determined by the time spent in the canteen, but by the number of pies eaten. This thought perfectly fits Vernons Casino. Vernons as a brand was founded way back in 1925. It is currently a part of Netplay TV, a subsidiary of the Betsson Group, which is another established name in the industry. The casino is currently licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and Alderney Gambling Control Commission. With so many well-known brands associated with it and reliable licenses, it goes without saying that the casino is great, right? Turns out, it’s not so much.
The website begins to show definite signs of age.
The website begins to show definite signs of age. It’s about time it got some professional face-lifting. Some sections don’t work, all the pages are loading too slow and the overall feeling about the website is way below average.
Customer Support: The support is alright, with most bases covered - free UK phone and paid international one, round-the-clock live chat, and email. If all these options won’t work for you, you can mail them a letter.
Banking: Same goes for the withdrawal options - bank cards and your most popular e-wallets (PayPal, Neteller, Skrill) are all accepted. The pending time is up to 72 hours, and after that, you’ll wait for additional 1-2 days for eWallets and 3-5 days for credit cards or bank transfer. They also reserve the right to determine max payout at their absolute discretion, without even stating any numbers so that it might be something about €5,000 per month.
An awful thing about Vernon’s Casino is their extraordinary greed. In the T&C, paragraph 10.14, they state that if they decide to cease providing the progressive jackpot games - your jackpot will be “appropriated by Us or Our Game suppliers or subcontractors” (sick!). This sounds ridiculous, but believe us, if you’ll win a progressive jackpot it won’t be so funny. That’s why the casino has dozens of player complaints on other reputable watchdog portals.
Software and Game variety
Vernons Casino strives to offer you the best collection of online casino games by making sure they've got all your favourite games lined up. That’s what these folks say about their astounding 300 titles game library. The casino hosts games mainly from Playtech and IGT, but you can also find here some games from Quickspin, Betsoft, Ash Gaming, and some others. What’s weird here, all the IGT games can be found in the Bingo section (don’t even ask us, we dunno why). Here are some of their game titles:
- Slots: Age of Gods: Fate Sisters, Wolf Run, Stampede, Big Bad Wolf;
- Jackpots: Gladiator, Beach Life, Chests of Plenty, Gold Rally;
- Table/Card Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Sic Bo, Craps;
- Video Poker: Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better;
- Specialty Games: Beachside Bonanza, Bingo Scratch, Millionaire Scratchcard;
- Arcade Games: Bouncy Balls, Deal or No Deal, Sugar Train, Virtual Horses.
Mobile and Live Games
The website works fine on mobile devices, but the game choice is somewhat smaller. On the bright side, you don’t even have to scroll the game sections down too much. How’s that for a plus?
Live games section proudly promises “an outstanding live casino experience.” It is true if you enjoy Roulette. That’s all they have - Roulette in five variations. Even funnier is the fact, that four of them are not even that live. Well, alright, they do have a real wheel and all that, but there are no live dealers! It’s just an automatic wheel captured on camera.
Bonuses and Promotions
This is where Vernons Casino’s variety issues get blatantly obvious. The promotions page currently features the sleeves of a vest. Yes, you got it right, they have no promotions at all!
As you might have guessed, there is currently no welcome bonus at Vernons Casino.
As you might have guessed, there are currently no Welcome Bonuses at Vernons. Be sure to check the promos page though, they might add something in the future (better late than never). Hell might freeze over in the meantime while you wait.
The VIP program is rather generic - earn points for playing games and exchange them for real cash. Whoopdy-doo.
