Casino Tropez Gives More Bank for Your Buck!

Tropez Gives More Bank for Your Buck!

Today is the last day to take advantage of Casino Tropez’s amazing $8,000 bonus. Seriously folks, I don’t use the word “amazing” if it’s not warranted, especially when I’m talking about online casinos. There’s more bombastic claims about online casinos out there on the internet than there is cow bell at bobsled races. On that note, go USA – the first Olympic gold in bobsled in the last 60 years!

As for Casino Tropez, they have been online for eight years, hence the $8,000 bonus figure. Now, eight years doesn’t sound like a long time, but in the world of online gambling, that’s a real long time. In fact, eight years in business makes Casino Tropez in the top 25% of the Web’s oldest online casinos. When you weigh in their reputation, customer service ratings, player loyalty and spotless track record, eight years in the online gambling business is a noble accomplishment. In other words, we’re not just talking about any 8 Year Anniversary.

So yes, Casino Tropez is giving away a 100% bonus up to $8,000 Free. They’ve been doing it all month long, which we told you about in our Newsletter (uh ya, not trying to be biased or anything, but if I were you I’d subscribe to the OCS Online Gambling Newsletter). Nonetheless, if you are reading this now and the clock hasn’t struck 12:00 Midnight on March 1, 2010, you can still claim this amazing free bonus offer at Casino Tropez. Sorry U.S. players, Casino Tropez is not open for your business. They used to be – thank your politicians.

If you want to claim this bonus, sign up for a real money account at Casino Tropez and contact customer service. They will need to send you an email invitation. Once you make your deposit and claim the bonus with the cashier, simply wager the bonus and deposit amount 40 times through (25x for VIP Members), and you’ll be on your way to cashing out some free money.

Remember, if you are not from the UK, you CANNOT claim this bonus if you are playing with Gross British Pounds Sterling. Game restrictions for meeting the play-through are: all versions of Baccarat, all versions of Roulette, all versions of Sic Bo, all versions of Darts, Heads or Tails, all Video Poker games, Blackjack Switch, Blackjack Surrender, Pontoon, and Craps. The following games will count one-third of each wager toward the play-through requirement: Blackjack, Blackjack Live, Lucky Blackjack, Progressive Blackjack and 21 Duel Blackjack.

More Exclusive Online Casino Bonuses Offered Through OCS Player’s Gambling Forum

Use exclusive casino bonus claim code CS25XOCS for $25 FREE & Join our Forum 4 More

Use exclusive casino bonus code CS25XOCS for $25 FREE & Join our Forum 4 More

For the second time this week, Online Casino Suite has posted an exclusive bonus offer available to…well, anybody who read’s this and pays a visit to our new player’s gambling forum! As part of the new forum launched just a couple of months ago, OCS is maintaining an Exclusive Bonus sub-forum where we announce new bonus promotions offered…well…exclusively through Online Casino Suite. Our first offer was an additional 100% on top of an already large 200% bonus at Pure Vegas Casino. Now, popular U.S. online casino, Crazy Slots, is giving away an additional $25 on top of their current 100% bonus exclusively through OCS.

Like I said, in order to claim the bonus, you must go through the link posted in the forum thread. Think of it as a nice way to get a taste of our forum, which I’m sure you will have no choice but to join being blown away by all that it has to offer. In addition to exclusive promotions, OCS hosts a Complaints forum and a Help forum. Both forums pretty much speak for themselves, and interestingly enough, the complaints forum is the busiest one of all so far. The good news is that the vast majority of complaints we have received are regarding online casinos not approved and listed in the OCS online casino reviews section. In fact, many of the properties being complained about are already on our blacklist.

Needless to say, it’s a good idea to go check out our online casino blacklist while your checking out the free exclusive casino bonus threads in our forum directly, or you can see the latest exclusive casino bonuses listed on our main bonuses page in addition to a large collection of what we, and many players, consider to be the best ongoing promotions being offered right now.

Now, about this bonus through Crazy Slots. It takes a minimum deposit of $25 to claim. So, if you make a $25 deposit, you will have $75 to wager with – it’s that simple. Since this is an attachment to the regular sign-up offer, all wagering terms and restrictions apply. In this case, it means you can receive up to $777 free (plus the additional $25), and a very low 10x wager requirement for slots, keno and scratch games. Remember to contact customer service through the software platform within 48 hours of making your deposit in order to claim the bonus. Be sure to give them the exclusive casino bonus code, which is CS25XOCS.

Now, if you’re from the U.S., you might also want to consider using a prepaid online gambling gift card to make a deposit, depending if your credit card goes through or not. Doing so will entitle you to a 100% bonus up to $600 Free (minimum deposit of $50) on your first deposit. And here’s the kicker: You can use this bonus on top of any other bonus, in effect giving you $777 + $600 + $25 = $1,602 in bonus money on your first deposit. Furthermore, all future deposits made with a gift card come with an automatic 10% bonus, which can also be used in conjunction with other reload bonuses.

Also, if this is your first time playing at Crazy Slots Casino and you are a fan of slots, be sure to take advantage of four free slots tournament entry coupons, given to every player who claims a welcome bonus.

ZY001A – Free Entry to Tournament of Your Choice #1
ZY001B – Free Entry to Tournament of Your Choice #2
ZY001C – Free Entry to Tournament of Your Choice #3
ZY001D – Free Entry to Tournament of Your Choice #4

Needless to say (just check out their Tournaments page), Crazy Slots tournaments are some of the largest online. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are guaranteed every month, with this month’s tally guaranteeing a minimum of $425,000 in tournament payouts. Both a $50,000 and $75,000 slots tournament are scheduled before the month is out, so if you are reading this and the March winds haven’t arrived yet, what don’t delay. But like I said, this is the norm at Crazy Slots every month, so either way, checking out their tournament calendar is worth the mouse click. Heck, you can even click a couple of more times to add tournament events to your Outlook, iCal, Yahoo or Google calendar – that’s how they like to do it over at Crazy Slots – nice and user friendly.

So what’s up with all this praise about Crazy Slots? Well, anyone who is willing to offer OCS readers an exclusive bonus offer is definitely on our good list – all things considered. And considering their reputation, ownership and licensing credentials, they get a two thumbs up from us. The only reason they don’t get 10 out of 10 star (currently at 8.8) is simply because of the fact that Crazy Slots hasn’t been in business as some of its closest competitors. My prediction is there will be many years of good business to come.

Online Casino Suite Offers Exclusive 300% Bonuses at Pure Vegas Casino

Exclusive 300% Bonuses at Pure Vegas With Online Casino Suite

Exclusive 300% Bonuses at Pure Vegas With Online Casino Suite

Online Casino Suite has just announced an exclusive bonus package for players at Pure Vegas Casino, including U.S. players.  Let’s cut right to the chase, shall we? It’s a series of two 300% bonuses worth $2,400 total ($1,200 each) that can be used on Slots, Keno and scratch cards. And to make things even better, the play-through is only 15x. Now, I don’t mean to toot our own horn or anything, but that’s a seriously great bonus offer, folks. Use bonus claim code 1200SUITE1 and 1200SUITE2 to take advantage of this limited time offer.

If you are wondering what makes this offer better than Pure Vegas’ normal Slots Bonus worth $2,400 free on two deposits, it’s the percentage factor. The normal bonus is worth 200% (which is still great if you ask me), while the exclusive offer through OCS gives an additional 100%. Pretty snazzy, eh? And considering their credentials, which include a TST certified RTG software platform, a Netherlands, Antilles online gambling license, and a pretty impressive customer service track record, Pure Vegas makes for a solid place to throw down some real money wagers online.

Of course, if you’re not an avid slots bettor, these exclusive bonuses will do you no good. However, since this is Pure Vegas Casino we’re talking about here (which has been given 9.2 stars out of 10), there are several other welcome bonus offers (100% up to $2,400 Free on four deposits), as well as weekly reloads and VIP bonuses that can be wagered through at 60x the bonus and deposit on the Blackjack tables and Video Poker machines. In fact, the only game restrictions for non Slots-only bonuses are Roulette, Craps, Baccarat and Pai Gow.

Another great thing we like about Pure Vegas is the fact that they treat loyal players very well – especially those who wager a good deal. VIP players are entitled to up to ten 100% Match Bonuses up to $1,000 Free every day Monday through Friday ($50,000 in bonuses every week). Weekend bonuses (up to seven claims every weekend) are worth 200% up to $1,000 Free. VIP Players are also entitled to receive 5-12% cashback on deposits every day, as well as higher table limits. To get the entire low-down, just read the OCS Pure Vegas Casino Review.

Again, if you would like to take advantage of the 300% bonuses exclusively offered through OCS, use the bonus claim code 1200SUITE1 and 1200SUITE2. And if you want to stay abreast of future exclusive bonus offers, it would behoove you to join our Online Gambling Forum, where we publish new exclusive offers in the Exclusive Promotions sub-forum (go figure). Heck, while you’re at it, you might as well view the actual thread for this exclusive bonus offer and post your comments. C’mon, you know we want to hear how you came out on top using these bonuses. 🙂

Ongoing Bonuses & Exclusive VIP Promotions at Mansion Online Casino

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

The latest online casino to go under the knife here at OCS is none other than Mansion Casino. Being a Playtech Software licensee, that makes a total of seven Playtech powered online casinos reviewed and recommended here at OCS. Considering there are hundreds of Playtech licensees (some of which will likely make it to our directory when the time warrants) means that you can expect to receive the best service and finest gaming packages offered at the casinos listed on OCS Playtech Casinos page.

That said, Gibraltar licensed Mansion Casino, which has been in business for nearly six years, offers a comprehensive lineup of ongoing promotions and bonuses, including some of the most exclusive VIP loyalty clubs. Currently, Mansion Casino is giving away extra comp points as part of their “Money Machine” promotion and is finishing up the “Triple Jump” promotion, which began on January 19th.

Mansion Online Casino's Money Machine is in Full Gear!

Mansion Online Casino's Money Machine is in Full Gear!

Money Machine takes place through the month of January and basically ups the comp point conversion ratio from the standard $10 in bonus money for every $3,000 wagered to $10 in bonus money for every $1,000 wagered. Simply play for ten days during the month, and the day in which the lowest comp points are earned will be applied to the heightened conversion ratio.

Mansion VIP Players Win a Shot at Winning a $4,000 Casino Getaway

Mansion VIP Players Win a Shot at Winning a $4,000 Casino Getaway

As for the Triple Jump promotion, the first jump, so to speak, was a free bonus worth 50% up to $300 Free (up to $500 Free for VIP’s). The “second jump” of the promotion took place on January 20th, and consisted of using the bonus money to earn even more free money by hitting a targeted number of casino comp points.

The final part of the “Triple Jump” promotion is taking place right now (until Monday, January 25th) and encourages players to use their bonuses from the previous two rounds to compete in a $10,000 guaranteed slots tournament. The top ten finishers and eight additional lucky players will share the guaranteed pot accordingly.

Throwing a little extra luck into the equation, the eight additional players to receive tournament winnings will be determined by “hotspots”, spaced every fifth place from 15 to 50. In other words, the player who finishes in the 45th position will win, yet the player in the 16th position will not. Personally, I’m not sure how the players finishing in places 11-14 and 16-18 (the next eight successive positions following the first ten winners) will feel about losing to the player in 50th place, but that’s the way it goes! And for extra icing on the cake, any VIP players who finish in the Top Five positions will earn double winnings.

As I mentioned already, Mansion Casino obviously takes care of their VIP players, which like at all online casinos, is a status given the longer one sticks around as a real money player at Mansion. The exclusive “Hospitality Events” available for VIP players are certainly worth the effort to earn VIP status. The next big Hospitality Event includes five $4,000 packages consisting of one year’s membership at the famed Les Ambassadeurs casino in London ($1,000 value), airline flights for two to London, a two-night stay at a first class London hotel, a hosted evening at Les Ambassadeurs, $500 in spending money and an optional theatre trip. Between September 18, 2010 and October 11, 2010, VIP players will receive one entry draw for every $1,000 wagered during the promotion window.

And guess what else? All real money depositing players are entitled to exclusive promotions, which Mansion sends out via email. You just need a registered account and that’s that. Visit Mansion Casino to open one today or read our Mansion Casino Review for more information. And if you’re ready to get right to it, Click Here to download Mansion Casino’s full suite of innovative Playtech Software online casino games, which can be played with unlimited fun-money credits or the real thing.

Online Gambling Disputes Part III – When the Player is the Rogue

Thursday, January 14th, 2010
Do you have the brain of a rogue online gambling criminal?

Do you have the brain of a rogue online gambling criminal?

Continuing with our series about online gambling disputes, it’s only fair to now shed some light on the ugly side of “player complaints”, not to mention criminal brains as deemed by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Disorders.

I don’t know about you, but it sure does seem to me like there are a lot of crooked online casinos in business today. It sure doesn’t take any time at all to find complaints and rip-off reports and accusations and disgruntled rantings, whether it be on forums, blogs or review sites…the list goes on.When I first began working in the online gaming industry back at the turn of the new millennium (man, do I feel old), I would constantly be hearing about this and that online casino cheating this and that player, along with online casino blacklists longer than the eye could see. And considering there was hardly any good regulation back then (mainly just Kahnawake and Antigua & Barbuda), you could say that online gambling truly was something of a Wild Wild West.

Naturally, you can imagine why it was easy for sites like Online Casino Suite to evolve into “player portals”, where solid, factual information about online casinos could be found – not the standard fare of cheap car salesman talk and flashy banners. And while OCS certainly makes the player its topmost priority, the player is not always cracked up to be who he or she claims to be. In other words, a lot of those complaints you run across on the forums and such (heck, even our own online gambling forum), do not always tell the full story.

For example, there are players out there known by online casino operators as “bonus hunters”. While there is nothing wrong with tracking down the best casino bonuses and playing with as much free money as you can get, when it involves knowingly violating an online casino’s terms and conditions in order to get more bonus money, that’s another matter altogether. A trick that some players like to use for claiming a bonus more than once is to open an account under a different name or address. Some will go so far to use fake documents and stolen driver’s licenses. Then, when it comes time to cash out their winnings, only to be denied by the online casino, the player starts crying bloody murder, usually accompanied by a fabricated story justifying why the online casino was able to track their IP address to two different accounts. My favorite is the one about the long lost brother who decided to open an account and unknowingly logged into the online casino while staying with his brother, and hence the duplicate IP address.

The worst rogue player of all, however, is the one who doctors supposed screen shots of winnings, ala Photoshop. It’s happened before, only to end up with the player showing his ass. But unlike the online casino whose reputation can be damaged forever, the player usually walks away unscathed, only to try his exploits again at another online casino network.

I guess the lesson to learn from all of this is that you can’t always believe what your read. That goes for complaints, reviews, positive testimonials….everything under the sun. You can, however, begin to gauge a larger picture about an online casino after taking in several sources of information. The only problem is that there truly are not very many reliable sources out there. Not trying to trap you in a box of anything, but this is precisely why Online Casino Suite has expanded to offer a forum and will soon be offering players the ability to comment on online casino reviews and share their two cents worth. That way, you don’t have to solely take the word of OCS – you can temper it with player comments…good and bad.

I suppose the second lesson to learn from this post is that it doesn’t pay to be a rogue player. Believe me folks – Online casinos use some pretty sophisticated fraud detection platforms these days. If you think you can get by with a proxy to block your IP address, think again.  Besides the fact that what goes around, comes around, there are simply way too many good online casinos and bonus offers out there to take advantage of anyways. For instance, online casinos like Rushmore Casino and Go Casino have more reload bonus money available than you’ll know what to do with.  So do yourself a favor –  Check the chart above to make sure you don’t have a criminal brain as deemed by the Massachusetts Deparment of Mental Disorders and BEHAVE!

Online Gambling Disputes Part II – How to Avoid Getting into an Illegitimate Dispute

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Do Yourself a Favor - Read the Online Casino Terms & Conditions

I know what you’re thinking…Why the “Preventable Causes of Death” graphic? No, online gambling is not a preventable cause of death (thank God…although, the opposition will probably tell you otherwise). I use it as an extreme analogy. Obviously, if you quit smoking you are drastically increasing your chances of preventing death (for the time being, of course). That said, this blog post will teach you how to prevent getting into a dispute with an online casino, which if we’re talking thousands of dollar’s, could be like dying for some of you.

Continuing with our blog series covering online gambling disputes, let’s go back one step, shall we? In the last post, I dished out my two cents worth about how to behave yourself while attempting to resolve a dispute with an online casino. How about not getting into a dispute to begin with? Now, I’ve never been a huge proponent of holistic living (I drink way too much beer for that); However, it’s obvious to me that if you want to avoid getting sick, one of the best things you can do is to incorporate some preventive measures.

In the world of online gambling, the best preventive measure you can take, so as to avoid getting into a dispute come withdrawal time, is to get yourself educated. Of course, part of that includes sorting out the rogue online casinos from the good guys, and the mediocre from the best online casinos – by the way, only settle for the best :). But it shouldn’t end there, although it unfortunately often does with many gamblers.

After picking out a place to wager online, whether it be the bonus offering or customer service that becomes the deciding factor, the next best thing you can do to educate yourself is to read the general terms and conditions imposed by the online casino. Now, I know it can be one of the most boring activities ever to do online. Then again, I’m reminded of the painful experience of filing my taxes online and that driver’s correction course….So ya, it could be worse. And if you happen to break one of the T&C’s, it most definitely will be “worse” come withdrawal time.

Like most anybody out there, I hate to see when a player is denied their withdrawal, simply because the player unknowingly violated one of the casino’s terms and conditions. It is definitely heartbreaking when we’re talking about a huge jackpot win. And as much as I want to cry out “injustice”, the whole debacle could have been avoided if the player had simply read the T &C’s when signing up AND before making a wager or claiming a bonus. Speaking of bonuses, in addition to reading the regular T&C’s, which generally covers withdrawal policies and account activity, players need to always read the full terms and conditions governing a bonus BEFORE claiming any bonus money.

T&C’s are usually posted on separate pages of an online casino’s website, and will take a little digging around in order to find them. See, online casinos, like most businesses in high-volatile industries, don’t like to be up front with everything. They just want to get you in the door. However, they also know that keeping any information from you as required by law is…well…against the law. So, everything you need to know so as to avoid any disputes come withdrawal time, is available for you to read. You just have to know where to look for it.

Now, the general Terms & Conditions are the easiest to find – usually at the very bottom of the casino’s webpage. Like I said before, they mainly cover the terms for opening and maintaining an account, as well as financial matters. Although I know you are going to be a good little newbie online gambler and read the T&C’s even after reading this, here’s the main points covered in the general T&C’s you need to know about:

1) Don’t open two accounts per household. Yes, that means if you have a companion who likes to gamble online, they need to do it at another online casino. And, for that matter, an online casino that is NOT part of the same network at the casino you are playing at. Do some research and ask some questions if you’re not sure.

2) Don’t open another account under a different name. And don’t try to register it at another address (like that of a friend). First off, you know it’s wrong. Secondly, online casinos use very high tech IP address tracking solutions that not even a proxy is going to block.

3) Know your withdrawal limits. Yes, all online casinos impose weekly withdrawal limits, unless we’re talking about a progressive jackpot win, in which the whole thing is eligible for withdrawal at once. If you don’t like the fact that you can’t withdrawal more than $2,000 per week, look for another online casino to open an account with. Don’t worry, the better casinos do indeed offer higher weekly maximums. For example, Go Casino is $8,000/week.

4) Don’t make a single wager until verifying if a bonus is in your account or not. Even if you don’t claim a bonus, some online casinos like to trick you by automatically putting the bonus there. Isn’t that nice of them? They like to call it free money, but we know it’s not. Granted, there are some good bonuses out there. But if you don’t want to be subjugated by bonus T&C’s, don’t make a wager before verifying that your account is clear of any bonuses. It is best to send an email to customer support, who can remove the bonus for you. After making you first wager, however, it’s usually too late, and you will likely have to play out the bonus. If in doubt, ask.

5) Check to see if there are any maximum withdrawal limits on bonus money. This is another trick online casinos like to use. Rather than stating this in the bonus terms and conditions, which are generally posted somewhere else, casinos often will stick this clause in the general T&C’s. The reason they do it is because if most people read it, they won’t claim the bonus. For example, there’s a casino out there (I won’t say who….just know they will never be listed at OCS), that gives away a $25 no-deposit bonus, but in the general T&C’s says the maximum amount of money that can be cashed out from bonus money is only half the amount of the bonus. In other words, if you are working on meeting the 60x play-through on this $25 bonus (see the bonus terms below, if you don’t know what play-through means), and happen to hit a $10,000 jackpot, you will still only be able to cash out $12.50. After doing so, your remaining balance will be set to zero. Ya, I know it sucks. And you know what else? It’s happened to players before – players who did not read the full T&C’s. So, if you do decide to claim a bonus, make sure you also read the general T&C’s.

BONUS TERMS

As for bonuses, their terms and conditions are generally split up on three different screens. One is the aforementioned general casino T&C’s. Another is the main promotions page. The third is generally linked to the main promotions page. In fact, if the full bonus T&C’s are not published on the main promotions page, the online casino is required by law to have the remaining terms accessible from this page. Look for something along the lines of “Click Here for Bonus Terms” or “Further Conditions”. It’s generally in small writing. Go figure, right? Now, here are the bonus terms to be aware of (generally posted on this secondary page).

1) Don’t request a deposit before meeting the play-through. The play-through is the amount of money you must wager before becoming eligible to make a withdrawal. It is a number multiplied by the amount of the bonus and corresponding deposit. For example, a 100% match bonus with a $100 deposit equated to $200. A 20x play-through on this bonus would be $200 x 20 = $4,000. Here’s the catch. If you request a withdrawal before the entire play-through is met, all of your winnings will be deemed null and void. So don’t get excited after making a big win and instantly requesting a deposit. You’ll be in for a big surprise when all you see is your original deposit amount.

2) Don’t wager at online casino games that are not eligible for meeting the play-through. Most bonuses only permit wagers at specific games – slots mostly. Even if you know that a wager won’t go toward the play-through, but simply want to make a bet on a non-eligible game anyways, don’t do it. Not only will the wager not go toward the play-through, it will turn all bonus winnings null and void. Ya, another little term online casinos like to use to slip you up with.

Other than these, there’s not really any more tricks in the bag online casino terms – at least that I know about. If so, please do tell us about it. Above all else, if you want to avoid getting yourself into an illegitimate dispute (meaning one in which you didn’t know you violated a T&C, and consequently, one in which you won’t win), ALWAYS read the full terms and conditions (general AND bonus terms) BEFORE opening an account and/or depositing money with an online casino.

In our next post, we’ll be discussing how not to be a cheating player. As if that will dissuade. Well, let’s hope so.

Online Casino Suite Finds Exclusive VIP Bonus at Club World Casinos This Weekend

Friday, January 8th, 2010

The Club World Casinos Group probably has to be the busiest and most loaded online casino group right now, judging by the size of the bonuses they are dishing out across their network of US, UK and Euro online casinos. Just yesterday, we reported on a huge batch of weekend bonuses being given out by Club World’s newly vamped Aladdin’s Gold Casino (see previous blog entry). Now, ClubUSA Casino and friends are giving away what some affiliates are calling a VIP high roller bonus.

Let it be known that Online Casino Suite received an “insider” email (if that’s what you can call it), announcing a massive 450% bonus using the claim code WEEKEND450. Only available this weekend, it is a generous offer that can be claimed for up to $4,500 Free. Judging by the wager requirements, it is a great bonus for slots fans – The play-through is a reasonably low 25x, and there is no maximum cashout on bonus winnings (just the normal weekly withdrawal minimum of $3,000, excluding progressive jackpot wins).

Two additional complimentary bonuses are GOODSTART75 and GOODSTART40 – the former being a 75% slots bonus worth up to $1,000 Free, with 25x play-through that can be claimed up to thirty (30) times between now and 11:59 pm, Monday, January 11, 2010. GOODSTART40 is the same bonus, but allowing wagers on Blackjack, Video Poker and all table games with a 45x play-through. This too can be claimed between now and Monday (11:59 pm EST), up to twenty (20) times.

As I said, this is an insider bonus, so you won’t see it listed on Club USA Casino’s Promotions Page. You will have to claim it within the cashier section of the software platform after logging in. Please do leave a comment on this blog if you have any problems claiming any of the aforementioned offers. And as always, even though we have disclosed the terms and conditions you need to know about, it is always advised that player’s read the entire bonus terms and conditions, as well as general terms and conditions if you are new and/or unfamiliar with your casino host. As for Club World, there are as transparent and forthcoming as online casinos get. Just don’t open more than one account per household, per name (I hope you only have one name), don’t make any charge backs and stay away from wagering on restricted games and you will be fine.

Weekend Casino Games Bonuses Available at Club World’s Aladdin’s Gold

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

aladdinsgoldweekendAladdin’s Gold Online Casino is giving away some great bonuses right now, in addition to its popular welcome bonus worth 200%. Paying out unlimited bonus money, Aladdin’s Gold gives new players the opportunity to claim this welcome bonus as many times as they like within seven days. So, if you’re thinking about joining Aladdin’s Gold, you might want to stick with that first.

Later on, you can take advantage of the other offers, which luckily enough, are reoccurring. I’m referring to the “Weekend Bonuses” which are published on the Promotions Page at AladdinsGold.com. But if I was you, I’d just open aa free account and view the bonus offers through the software platform. Otherwise, you will have to go through a maze of Flash animation on the website to view the bonus offer terms. And although I like the cool, loungesque music playing in the background, one can only take so much of a twenty second loop :).

Back to the “Weekend Bonuses”, this particular set of bonuses applies to the upcoming weekend, beginning Friday, January 8th. There are two packages of bonuses – each with multiple promotions – titled “A Good Weekend Recipe” and “2010“. A Good Weekend Recipe can be used from Friday to Sunday, while the 2010 bonuses can only be claimed on Sunday, January 10th, 2010.

The first round of bonuses basically covers three sets of games. Set 1 consists of 20 bonus coupons worth 50% up to $1,000 Free, with a 25x wager requirement on slots and online keno. Set 2 consists of 20 coupons worth the same percentage and amount free, but with a 40x wager requirement on Texas Hold’em Bonus and Caribbean Poker. Set 3 casino bonuses cover Blackjack and Video Poker worth 40% and come with a 50x play-through (standard for strategy-based games). There are also 20 coupons for this set.

The 2010 bonuses on Sunday are the best of all, and are being billed as mystery bonuses, being that Aladdin’s Gold hasn’t disclosed the percentage amount just yet. Perhaps they will wait to see how much money players walk away with from the first round of bonuses :). The great thing about these bonuses is that they can be wagered on any online casino games and come with a low 20x play-through on all games other than Blackjack, Video Poker, Craps and Baccarat, which come with 40x.

Anyone unfamiliar with Aladdin’s Gold Casino should get to know it. They are powered by RTG and managed by the highly reputable Club World Casinos Group. Licensing in held in Curacao (Netherlands, Antilles) and their doors are open to U.S. players.

One Club Online Casino Offering Upsized Welcome Bonus & New Reload Offer

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Now offering 250% up to $777 Free

U.S. facing One Club Casino has made some changes to their promotions package, which for the most part, decidedly makes for an overall better offer of bonuses and free cash. The former welcome bonus, which was worth $777 Free over the course of four consecutive deposits, ranging from 25% to 150% Free, is now worth a generous 250% up to $777 Free on a single deposit. The only difference is that while the former bonus allowed Blackjack, 21, Pontoon and Video Poker wagers to meet the wager requirement, these games are now excluded.

The welcome bonus offer, in essence, is a slots bonus (keno and certain other parlor games with traditionally higher Casino Edges are also permitted). Not bad at all for a slots bonus, some players may find the 40x play-through a little high compared to other U.S. facing online casinos; Nonetheless, this is a great slots welcome bonus for the player who has already claimed the best welcome bonus offers available at other online casinos.

The other perk about the bonus offers at One Club – and a new offer at that – is that all deposits are now eligible to receive reload bonuses worth 75% up to $500 Free. The terms and conditions are the same as those governing the welcome bonus, so be sure you know what you’re getting into before claiming. For anyone who is planning to wager on slots to begin with, taking advantage of some of this free bonus money is a no-brainer. And no, there are no maximum withdrawal limits imposed on bonus money winnings as is the case at many other online casinos.

With the reload bonuses in effect, the fact that One Club has discontinued their $20 no-deposit bonus offer for players who complete the faxback verification process in a timely fashion and many Player’s Club perks, such as a $1,000 weekly draw, and weekly bonus offers, makes these changes all a little more “digestible”. Nonetheless, One Club is still offering special promotion games and events from time to time, along with their $20 Friend Referrals and comp point loyalty program.

Overall, One Club Casino is certainly an excellent destination for players to open real money wagering accounts, especially players residing in the U.S. One Club is regulated in the UK (one of the strictest betting jurisdictions in the world), and is powered by TST fairness certified RTG software. U.S. players will be pleased to know that Visa and MasterCard are accepted here, and that One Club will work hard to prevent financial delays typically associated with U.S. account holders. Here is what they say on their website:

“It is very important to us that we meet or exceed your expectations. For this reason we need you to understand ahead of time that regulatory changes in the market place and new banking regulations have limited the availability of deposit and withdrawal methods and have increased the time required to process withdrawals.We value your business and will do everything we can to offer as many deposit and withdrawal options as possible and to keep the time it takes to process withdrawals to a minimum. Please allow up to 2 weeks for withdrawals to process and we will do our best to exceed your expectations”.

I love the part about exceeding expectations. That’s what I call good customer service.

Please note the minimum deposit amount at One Club Casino is $100, while withdrawals are limited to $1,000 per month, unless cleared with a customer service manager.

Club USA Casino and Club World Casino Group: New Bonuses and Promotions

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Club USA Casino Special Weekly Promotions

From today through Friday, December 18th, players at the Club World Casino Group, including dedicated online casinos facing the United States, United Kingdom and Europe in general, are eligible to enter a series of promotions and claim new free cash bonus offers.

The promotion taking place right now until Sunday, December 13th is called the “A La Carte Slots“, and is a quasi-slots tournament awarding $1,000 in real cash winnings. I say “real” cash, so as to distinguish a difference between bonus money and cash that can actually be withdrawn :). The way it works is that, unlike traditional online slots tournaments, “A La Carte Slots” awards the player who simply wagers the most money in the designated time period. It’s like a loyalty program for slots tournaments.

Other tournaments award the player who has the highest balance, meaning that one lucky jackpot spin could seal the deal. On one hand, players who don’t necessarily have large bankrolls do not stand a great chance of winning, but then again, the winnings from a big win early on can be used to bet even more, hopefully lasting through the entire tournament. Taking the former into consideration, Club USA Casino is also offering a special tournament entry bonus and three-day bonus package. Simply choose from Menu A or Menu B on the tournaments sign up page to receive either a $75 bonus credit or $150 in bonus chips. Menu A requires a deposit of $100 and gives the $75 bonus, while Menu B requires a $200 deposit and awards an additional $150 in bonus credits to use in the tournament. The coupon codes for these bonuses are TOURNAMENTA and TOURNAMENTB, accordingly.

An additional bonus package is also available, and consists of twenty 50% bonuses up to $1,000 each for play on Slots, Keno and scratch cards. Up to 20 claims per player. Coupon Code: FESTIVEXMAS50. For Blackjack, Video Poker and Table Game players, a 40% bonus up to $1,000 can also be claimed through Sunday, December 13th (up to 20 times). Coupon Code: LUCKYSOCK40.

Also, this type of tournament structure provides a better chance of winning to those players who are willing to spend more. In other words, expect the high rollers to come out for “A La Carte Slots”. First place takes home $300, runner up gets $200, and 3rd through 10th place get $50 each. If you’re wondering about the name, “A La Carte Slots” refers to the fact that – once again – unlike traditional slots tournaments, players can choose any of their favorite online casino slots to play at.

Following the close of the tournament on Sunday, December 13th, Club USA Casino is offering a one-day-only bonus worth the same as the aforementioned (50% up to $1,000 on slots and 40% up to $1,000 on table games). These can be claimed 10 times per player and are available just on Sunday, December 13, 2009. The slots bonus claim code is PANETTONE50 and the table game bonus is FRUITCAKE40.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get better, Club World is hosting a seven day promotion from Monday, December 14 through Sunday, December 20, 2009. It is basically a series of increasing daily slots and table game bonuses, starting at 40% on Monday and culminating at 75% on Friday and through the weekend. Each bonus can be claimed 10 times and has the following claim codes.

Slots Bonuses: COOKIE1 (Monday), COOKIE2 (Tuesday), COOKIE3 (Wednesday), COOKIE4 (Thursday), COOKIE5 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

Table Game/BJ Bonuses: DOUGHNUT1 (Monday), DOUGHNUT2 (Tuesday), DOUGHNUT3 (Wednesday), DOUGHNUT4 (Thursday), DOUGHNUT5 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

FYI, Club World Casinos offers some of the friendliest bonus terms and conditions on the Web. The above mentioned slots bonuses have a 25x play-through requirement and the table game bonuses are just 40x (one of the lowest table game bonus play-through’s available). Please note that Craps, Roulette, Baccarat and Sic Bo wagers are explicitly disqualified from meeting the play-through, and players should avoid making wagers at these games while playing with bonus money.
