Adam was (allegedly) the first man, Neil Armstrong was (allegedly) the first man on the moon, and Noah was the first man ever to purchase a home insurance policy with a $1,000,000 'risk of flooding' premium. There has to be a 'first' of everything, so what was the first ever online casino?
The answer is InterCasino, who reached the milestone age of 18 in 2014. Founded by Ohio bookmaker Billy Scott in Antigua, it opened its virtual doors in 1996. In 1998, however, Scott was charged in the US with taking illegal sports bets, and InterCasino passed into new hands. The Casino is now run by WagerLogic, who are part of Goldstar Acquisitionco Inc.
After having almost 20 years to get things right, surely InterCasino must be among the crème de la crème of online casino providers? Read on to find out ...
InterCasino has pushed the boat out by offering RightCasino players an exclusive 200% up to £400 welcome bonus. Deposit the full amount and get your account topped up to £1200, but please note that you MUST send the casino proof of age within 72 hours of depositing. This is to comply with new UK regulations (InterCasino does everything by the book, and rightly so).
InterCasino also offers handsome reload bonuses. On your second and third deposits you'll receive a 100% up to £200 match.
There's a minimum deposit of £10 applied to each bonus. On the first deposit, wagering requirements are 20x the deposit and bonus. On the second and third deposits, the wagering requirements are 15x. All wagering requirements must be satisfied within 30 days of receiving a bonus.
Single deck blackjack, live casino games and any automated blackjack bets do not count towards any wagering requirements. All games contribute differently towards wagering requirements, so it's best to check InterCasino's T&Cs before you go ahead and claim one.
InterCasino's VIP lounge caters for regular players and rewards them with extra bonuses, cashback, a personal VIP manager and other gifts and event invitations including trips to Royal Ascot, the Monaco Grand Prix and Wimbledon.

You want it, then InterCasino probably has it - just under 200 slots, 21 (appropriately!) versions of blackjack, four versions of roulette, 10 versions of video poker, 'jackpot' games and other table games including baccarat, red dog, war, pai gow, casino poker and craps. There's also live casino versions of roulette, blackjack and baccarat.
InterCasino is not a site that likes to rest on its laurels, surprising fans with a complete makeover in 2013. The site has a fashionable 'flat' look, and navigation is a breeze. It also looks very fresh in Japanese. Live chat and a personal assistant are only a click away.
InterCasino uses software from its own brands (Crytologic/WagerLogic and Amaya/Chatwell), as well as Leander Games and Bally. Unfortunately, this means that many of the top slots games from Microgaming and NetEnt cannot be played here.
All games at InterCasino can be played via a browser, and most of them can be played on mobile devices.
Available Software: Amaya, Aristocrat, Bally Technologies, CryptoLogic, Leander Games, NextGen Gaming.
No concerns at all about cashier issues at InterCasino, with all major banking and eWallet solutions being available, including PayPal.

InterCasino has had alot of time to hone its product, so how does it stand up to the competition? The answer is well, but there's room for improvement.
The brand has a great reputation, the website is easy on the eye, and players benefit from a good array of funding options, including PayPal. The downsides? The absence of games from software giants Microgaming and NetEnt, and the bonus T&Cs for the 'classic' bonus, where live casino games don't count at all towards wagering requirements.
If trustworthiness and reliability are what you seek in an online casino, then you're going to be 'Inter' InterCasino. If you're looking for more compelling bonus action, you might want to scout around elsewhere.Sounds good, sign me up!
