Vegas Spins Casino in a nutshell
Vegas Spins Casino is – complete with an authentic neon theme – a new-ish (November 2014) online casino from the gambling experts at Cassava Enterprises. Cassava are based in Gibraltar and are the people who run an ever-growing number of gambling companies onine, including bingo and sports betting sites. The biggest name associated with Cassava are the 888 group of wagering portals.
Vegas is of course THE place that’s most associated with bonus spins, and Vegas Spins Casino obviously hopes it will become THE place that’s most associated with online casino and slots enjoyment. To help convince you of this, there’s a £500 welcome bonus and sixty bonus spins available over your first three deposits.
So, is Vegas Spins Casino like a night playing slots in Las Vegas, or more like a night playing Twister with Johnny Vegas? Keep on reading if you want to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Vegas Spins Casino?
The design of Vegas Spins Casino falls halfway between a traditional design and a contemporary one. The ‘neon’ theme works well but equally the pink, purple and sky blue colour scheme starts to make the eyes ache a little. Getting around the site is probably a lot easier than getting around the real Las Vegas, although the gambling opportunities are considerably less bountiful.
What games are available at Vegas Spins Casino?
The emphasis in Las Vegas is mainly on slots, and the same is true here. There are countless slots to entertain you, and some of the very best in the slotting business – checkout our perennial favourite Starburst, the legendary Excalibur, and the queenly Cleopatra.
Pickings at the rest of Vegas Spins Casino are thin on the ground, which is a surprise. We found five versions of roulette, two versions of casino poker, and one version apiece of video poker and baccarat. There are also two versions of keno. In the ‘casino games’ section we found ‘Casino Reels’ too – which is a slots game.
There are two live casino options – ‘Common Draw Blackjack’ and ‘Live Automatic European Roulette’.
Software is provided by 888, NetEnt, GTS, WMS and Eyecon. Of those – as you should know by now if you’ve ever read our reviews before – we consider NetEnt to be by far-and-away the best.
Support is available 24/7 via live chat (members only), email and a number of phone lines, so help is on hand if you do encounter an issue.
There is a live casino available, but only for blackjack and roulette.
There’s a mobie version of the site with a limited number of games. No download is required and it works on both iOS and Android devices.
What promotions are available at Vegas Spins Casino?
As we mentioned in the intro, there’s a welcome bonus available to newbies at Vegas Spins Casino that’s worth a maximum of £500 over your first three deposits here, plus a total of sixty FREE bonus spins on some of the site’s two hundred or so online slots games.
Your first deposit at the casino will be matched one hundred percent up to £250, and you will also receive thirty bonus spins to use on the top online slot game Magical Forest. The minimum amount you need to make as a deposit is £10 to receive this freebie deal.
The next two despoits you make will both be subjected to a fifty percent bonus up to a maximum of £125. Again, the minimum deposit you need to make to receive this bonus is £10. After your second deposit you receive fifteen free spins on Las Cucas Locas, and after your third you receive another fifteen freebie spins, this time on Fish & Chips. Free spins winnings are paid as bonus money.
There are the usual terms and conditions associated with these freebie, of course. To turn your bonus cash into withdrawable cash, you need to wager the value of your deposit and the associated bonus award sixty-five times. So if you deposit £100, and earn yourself a tasty £100 bonus, then you need to wager a total of £13,000. Note that this is the amount of money you must wager, not spend.
Vegas Spins are – we are sad to say – one of those naughtly online casinos where NO GAMES COUNT ONE HUNDRED PERCENT towards wagering requirements. We really do not like this practice at all, which is why we are shouting about it. The highest game contribution is ninety percent, so in effect the minimum wagering requirements rise to at least 71x, and not 65x. Gaming contributions are as follows:
- Slots, scratch cards, keno, race, arcade games – 90%
- Hi-Lo games – 50%
- Roulette games – 10%
- Blackjack, ‘Wheel of Light’, video poker – 5%
We’re not sure why Vegas Spins Casino have decided to disguise their wagering requirements in this way (although we can guess) but it would be better if they were just transparent about it. Anyhow, the better news is that deposit bonuses beyond your first deposit have a friendlier WR of 40x (or 44x in real terms). If you receive a no deposit bonus the WRs are 70x (77x).
To be fair, Vegas Spins Casino do like to reward their players with regular promos. When we reviewed the site, we found promos for Cash Back deals every Sunday, free spins that are awarded on a certain slot, and the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas itself.
The site does run a VIP scheme, and you gain entry to the scheme as soon as you have deposited £500 at the casino.
You needn’t keep as close an eye on your wallet at Vegas Spins Casino as you would in the real Las Vegas. This online casino accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, Entropay, PayPal, Neteller and Paysafecard (now including Ukash). You can also send money via Wire Transfer if you so wish.
You can withdraw to Visa credit and debit cards, PayPal and Neteller. You can also request a Wire Transfer or a personal cheque.
Deposits are in your casino account seconds after you have made them. Withdrawals take a little longer – four to five days for eWallets (which is a little slow when compared to other casinos), and seven days for credit and debit cards. Wire Transfers and Cheques take even longer.
Minimum deposit is £10 and maximum withdrawal amount is £30. The maximum deposits are £1,000 (daily), £2,000 (weekly) and £3,000 (monthly). Those maximums are the same when it comes to withdrawals.
The final verdict
Whatever we think of Vegas Spins Casino is going to be swayed by that ‘blurring’ of their wagering conditions policy. It’s rather dumb to declare ’40x’ play-through requirements then have ZERO games contribute fully towards them. It’s much more honest to have at least slots count one hundred percent towards wagering.
Other than that, we’re not too excited about Vegas Spins Casino anyhow. As online casinos go, this is a very mundane place – completely at odds, perhaps, with the ‘Vegas’ motif. It may be a lot cheaper than a trip to Las Vegas, but only about one hundreth of a percent as fun.
