Magical Vegas Casino in a nutshell
Magical Vegas is an online casino that’s run by Daub Alderney. It’s one of two casinos operated by Daub Alderney, the other being Spin and Win Casino. Daub Alderney is, as you have probably gathered, based in Alderney in the Channel Islands, and runs via UK and Alderney gambling licences.
Magical Vegas Casino is one of several online casinos that use the name of Vegas in their title. It’s the city in the world probably most identified with gambling, as well as being pratically the only place in the USA where gambling is legal. Sadly perhaps for the USA the days of Vegas being number one in the gambling world are long gone. That title now belongs to Macau … but you don’t see many sites named ‘Magical Macau’ or ‘Macua Spins’.
So, is the Magical Vegas Casino truly magic, or completely tragic? Read our review for our thoughts …
What’s the look and feel of Magical Vegas Casino?
The colour scheme of Magical Vegas Casino is a very typical Vegas-theme of pinks, purples and light blues. This could have been quite a disaster, but Magical Vegas Casino seem to have handled it quite well. The site looks very slick, with nicely-sized icons and chunky menus. Our only concern is that the navigation doesn’t really seem to work in some areas.
What games are available at Magical Vegas Casino?
Magical Vegas Casino does not have as many slots and tables games as the real Vegas of course, but it still does pretty well.
Slots are the most numerous games available at the site. It’s hard to work out just how many as the site’s functionality is not too great. The default view for slots is ‘Featured’ when you you try and switch to ‘All’ by clicking a link you still get featured slots only. When you do get through to the ‘All’ page a handful of table games seem to have invaded. We reckon there’s about two hundred slots, including many top titles such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Twin Spin and Grease.
The site has a total of twenty-five table games. The scores on the doors are blackjack (8), video poker (6), roulette (6) plus casino hold’em, baccarat, ‘Beat Me’, pai gow poker and casino stud poker.
There is no live casino here.
Software here is provided by a whole host of top providers, including Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n GO, WMS, IGT and others.
Live support is available 24/7 and the site functions fine on mobile.
There are no live casino options.
What promotions are available at Magical Vegas Casino?
Magical Vegas Casino offers new players a magical welcome bonus … or at least it seems that way on the surface. Sign up to the Magical Vegas Casino and you could be rewarded with bonuses that total £1,000, plus 20 free spins.
Your only need to register to be awarded your free spins. These can be used on either Starburst, Twin Spin or Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, and the maximum you can win from them is £5.
Your available bonus schedule is split as follows:
- 1st deposit – 100% bonus up to £200
- 2nd deposit – 30% bonus up to £200
- 3rd deposit – 50% bonus up to £500
For each deposit bonus the minimum you need to deposit is £20. Do that, and Magical Vegas Casino will pass you bonus money at the rates and schedule as indicated.
In order to convert your bonus winnings into real cash, you will need to make wagers equivalent to twenty-five (25) times the combined value of your bonus and deposit. So, if you deposit £50 and you receive a £50 bonus, then your wagering expectations are (£50 + £50) x £2,500.
Only slots games and scratchcards count fully towards your wagering requirements. Bets placed on table games count ten percent, aside from roulette and ‘jackpot games’ which do not count at all. The maximum amount you can win via any of your bonuses is £500. Note that you will not receive this bonus if your initial deposit is via Neteller, and that from the award of your bonus you have seven days in which to meet requirements before your bonus expires.
Aside from these welcome offers Magical Vegas Casino seems to run other promotions on quite a regular basis. Make sure you keep an eye on their promotions page for the best deals.
The site has two loyalty schemes – ‘Magical Moolahs’ and the ‘VIP club’.
You are awarded ‘Magical Moolahs’ for every bit of cash you deposit at the casino, plus for every penny you gamble. Of course, the more you deposit and the more you spend, the more ‘Magical Moolahs’ you earn. When you have accumulated enough moolahs, you can exchange them for bonus cash, free spins and competition entries.
The VIP club is only available to those whom are invited. There are no further details about the VIP club on the site so we guess it’s a ‘need to know’ occasion.
Megical Vegas Casino has a very good and detailed banking page. It accepts credit and debit cards, PayPal, Paysafecard (now incorporating Ukash) and Neteller. The minimum deposit is £10 for credit/debit cards and Paysafecard, and £20 for all other methods. There are no fees and most deposits will be transacted instantly.
You can withdraw to all the above methods aside from MasterCard credit cards and Paysafecard. The miniumum withdrawal for all methods is £10. Again, there are no fees involved. Once your deposit has been approved (which could take up to seventy-two hours) the money should appear instantly in your eWallet account, but if you’ve chosen a credit or debit card it will take a little longer. Sadly, there’s a withdrawal limit of £3,000 per month.
The final verdict
So, is Magical Vegas Casino magical or tragic-al? We’d have to go for the ‘magic’ side of the fence, but the site needs to improve if we’re going to be more confident about our decision. More table games are needed, plus a live casino and the navigation niggles we observed need to be tidied up too.
If you want a magical trip to Las Vegas, then you’re going to have to save up the cash. Until then, Magical Vegas Casino makes for a decent-enough substitute.
