Grande Vegas Casino Awards Two Trips to Foxwoods Casino Resort

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010
Grande Vegas Online Casino is just giving the business away!

Grande Vegas Online Casino is just giving the business away!

As reported earlier, here at OCS, Grande Vegas online casino has been set to give away two all-expense-paid trips to the famous Foxwoods tribal casino in Connecticut. Entering every single player into the raffle draw (who made at least one real money wager inside the online casino this Summer), Grande Vegas has just unveiled the lucky winner.

Published via a Lyceum Media press release, the news should have some head’s turning by now. It’s one thing to announce a promotion and illicit participation from players. It’s another thing altogether when said promotion has come to fruition and there is a reaction from the lucky winners.

Sure enough, the two lucky winners (Sheila S. from New York and Taylor C. from California) had something to say about their good fortune. Sheila S. said, “My husband is ecstatic about going to Foxwoods but I bet he’ll be spending more time on the golf course than in the casino!”, while Taylor C. had this to say:

“I first checked out Grande Vegas when I heard they had the biggest progressive jackpots that we American online casino players can play for,” said Taylor C.  “I do recall reading about the Foxwoods contest in a player newsletter at the beginning of the summer but I’d honestly forgotten about it. So it was quite a surprise – a really pleasant surprise – when Customer Support contacted me to tell me to start packing for my free trip to Foxwoods!”

It’s not very often often that online casinos give away free trips to players. It’s certainly not very often for an online casino to send their players to a brick ‘n mortar casino at that. If you ask me, it’s like giving business away. But then again, that’s Grande Vegas for you. One of the top-performing U.S. facing, RTG-powered online casinos in business today, Grande Vegas doesn’t hold back in the promotions department.

In addition to their long-standing welcome bonus offer of 100% up to $100 Free on all new depositing players, Grande Vegas is giving away an additional match bonus worth $100 Free (aka, the Cosmopolitan Bonus) until September 22nd, and a 77% bonus up to $154 Free until September 30th.

And for all the table game bettors out there, Grande Vegas offers an outstanding ongoing cashback bonus. For all deposits up to $5,000 in a given week (contingent on all wagers being made at table games), Grande Vegas will give 5% back, while deposits over $5,000 will receive 10% back. Best of all, the cashback bonus money only needs to be played through one time over before it is eligible to be cashed out.

Vampire Bets Getting Free Poker Lessons From Doyle Brunson?

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010
Look out Hendon Mob. Doyle Brunson has a Killer Team in the making.

Look out Hendon Mob. Doyle Brunson has a Killer Team in the making.

I just read an article about poker legend, Doyle Brunson, who has apparently divulged that a colony of Vampire bats are living it up on the property of his Montana summer home. I know, I know, big deal, right?

However, it doesn’t end here. In addition to knocking off some six thousand insects every night, the colony of blood thirsty birds are taking poker lessons from the Texas Dolly himself, and apparently know how to play a mean hand of Texas Hold’em. Okay, maybe not all of them – just the one’s who know their blind(s)….C’mon, admit it – for a bad joke, that was pretty funny.

According to Brunson, they are pretty good at bluffing too. Every so often when taking his early evening walk, a few bats will make a diving swoop right at his head! Brunson – in fear of his life – has no choice but to fold on those hands. I don’t know about you, but I’d do the same if someone…err, a bat…was trying to drink my blood at the poker table.

I know what you’re thinking  – what is this April Fool’s Day? Well, if we’re talking about my life, many a day is April Fool’s Day. But the truth of the matter is that I’m always looking for any good reason to talk about Doyle Brunson, and consequently, his highly rated online casino, Doyle’s Casino. Read the OCS Doyle’s Casino Review if you want to find out more.

In the meantime, I’ll be studying up on the bluffing techniques of Vampire bats at the poker table. Then, just maybe, I too will have a good shot at making the Brunson 10. Now that is even harder to believe than poker playing Vampire bats, my friends!

Free Casino Resort Getaway and Ongoing Bonus Offers at Grande Vegas Online Casino

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010
Make wagers at Grande Vegas Casino in August for a chance to win!

Make wagers at Grande Vegas Casino in August for a chance to win!

I don’t know about anyone else, but when an online casino opts to give away trips to brick ‘n mortar casinos as part of its monthly promotional deals, I say, “Right on, Man!”. What makes it even more dope is when we’re talking about U.S. facing online casino at that.

For all of you who need an introduction, well then….introducing Grande Vegas Casino. Having their doors open to U.S. players since 2009, I suppose you could say this Real Time Gaming powered betting destination is still something of a “new” online casino.

And while you may certainly think that to be the case judging by how many special offers they have (it’s a common practice for newly launched online casinos to dish out huge bonuses and special promos), Grande Vegas plans to keep their promotions schedule loaded to the gills.

Back to that brick ‘n mortar casino offer: In order to become eligible for an exclusive, all-expenses-paid trip to the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, all you have to do is make a real money deposit in July or August (in this case, August). That’s it. A random drawing will select the lucky winner, who – it’s safe to say – is going to be in for a real treat. Foxwoods Casino is one of the best on the East American Coast, in my opinion, even outdoing some of the casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. Offering casino table games, video poker, slots – basically, everything you can find in Vegas, except in beautiful Connecticut – Foxwoods Casino is sure to please the most fastidious of gamblers.

Since we’re on the topic of promotions and bonuses at Grande Vegas Casino, I might as well tell you everything else they are offering real money players currently. Whether you win the trip to Foxwoods or not, there are several free bonus offers available this month.

The WILDE bonus is a 77% deposit bonus up to $154 Free with a 30x play-through that can be used on all slots, video slots, scratch cards and keno. The coupon code is WILDEAUG10 and can be claimed once through August.

If you’re looking for a solid weekly bonus offer, Grande Vegas’ 100% City Bonus is a great option. This week’s bonus celebrates the city of Beijing and can be claimed through August 19th. If you’re reading this after the fact, no worries ’cause there will be another weekly bonus behind this one. The bonus is worth up to $100 Free, has a 30x play-through and can be claimed in the cashier under the “Redeem Coupon” section with the bonus code BEIJING.

For the table game online casino gamblers, Grande Vegas has an ongoing cashback bonus offer available worth up to 10% cashback on weekly losses incurred playing table games only. Losses on weekly deposits from $20-$5,000 are eligible for 5% cashback, while weekly losses on deposits of $5,000 and up are entitled to receive 10% cashback. Just note that the cashback bonus can ONLY be used when no other bonuses are taken, and only applies to table games. In other words, contact an account manager at grandevegas@swiftassistance.com to find out if and when you are eligible to receive this bonus.

Oh, and there are slots tournaments available at Grande Vegas as well. But more on those later. Read the OCS Grande Vegas Casino Review for more info or Visit Grande Vegas directly.

Weekly Bonus Offers on Most Games Available Starting Today at Lucky Red Online Casino

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010
Daily online casino promotions

It's better than the old HBO Intro...Promos in Space!

Let’s talk weekly bonuses and promotions shall we?

At Lucky Red online casino, they say “you need never play without a bonus”. I’m guessing that means there is always a free cash bonus available every time you make a deposit. Turns out, Lucky Red isn’t lying. Now, I’m not partial to Lucky Red or anything, but this Real Time Gaming software-powered online casino does indeed have plenty of free bonus money to offer, including some great weekly offers covering just about all of the 120+ casino games available for download.

Also available in Flash (for all you Mac user’s and anyone with a penchant for quick access), Lucky Red is one of the few U.S. facing online casinos owned and managed by a UK-based company. From the same folks behind the popular Club World Casinos group (catering to UK, Euro and US players), Lucky Red’s customer operations are located in Manchester, UK at Cross Street M2 4JU under the business name, Steam Packet House. Read the OCS Lucky Red Casino Review for more information.

Now…back to the topic at hand: weekly bonus offers.  Lucky Red currently has six different bonus coupons available for returning depositors starting today and lasting through Monday, August 16th. Split into two promo’s the first set of bonus offers consists of a slots/keno/scratch card coupon that can be claimed up to a total of thirty times (25x play-through).

On Tuesday, August 10th (that’s today, for all you floaters like myself), unlimited bonus money worth 50% of one’s deposit is available (on 10 deposits, bonus code SHERLOCKA). On Wednesday, August 11th and Thursday the 12th, the same exact offer is available with the addition of a 5% raise in free money (55% on Wednesday, Bonus Code: SHERLOCKB; and 60% on Thursday, Bonus Code: SHERLOCKC). During the same time period, a 40% Bonus is also available for wagers on Blackjack, Video Poker and all Table Games (Bonus Code: HOLMES). It can be claimed an unlimited number of times and has a reasonable play-through requirement of 50x. Some game restrictions apply (see the LUCKYMAN bonus below).

Before moving onto the second set of bonus offers spanning August 13-16, let me just say that Lucky Red states in their main Bonus Terms and Conditions “Bets placed on Baccarat, Craps, Roulette games and Sic Bo do not count towards the wagering requirements of any bonus unless otherwise stated.” In regards to the HOLMES bonus mentioned above, “unless otherwise stated” applies. I know everybody reading this is in the practice of reading the full T&C’s of bonuses before claiming them, but I thought I’d share anyway :).

As for the upcoming weekend, you can expect to receive much of the same. Beginning Friday (00:01 Thursday night EST), Hexbreaker Friday goes into effect, offering an unlimited 65% slots/keno/scratch card bonus (Bonus Code: GOODLUCK) with a 25x play-through, and an unlimited 45% bonus for use on blackjack, video poker and all table game wagers (once again under the “unless otherwise stated” stipulation). But keep in mind, there are some game wagering restrictions! These include 7 Stud Poker, Bingo, Bonus Bingo, European Slots Poker, Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, Poker and Sic Bo (also applying to the aforementioned HOLMES bonus).

The bonus code for this one is LUCKYMAN and has a 50x play-through.

Again, for anyone seriously interested in opening an account at an online casino, Lucky Red is a solid choice – especially if you simply can’t gamble online without a bonus. Visit Lucky Red Casino to find out more.

Doyle’s Casino Kicks Off Online Slots Tournaments This August

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Doyle’s Casino is one of our favorite RTG-powered, US facing online casinos here at OCS. Besides the fact Doyle Brunson himself has given his personal assurance that his namesake online casino is committed to providing the best customer service and an outstanding gaming package, Doyle’s Casino has truly got it going on in the realm of promotions and tournaments – basically what serious online gamblers expect to receive on an ongoing basis.

When Doyle’s Casino first received a listing on our main online casino reviews page, they were offering a generous welcome match bonus worth up to $1,000 Free, up to 25% insurance on weekly losses at table games, slots and video poker, as well as 150% bonuses for wagers on select new online casino games and a “Rock Around the Clock” bonuses dishing out up to 30% Free to returning VIP players.

That’s a lot of promotions, is it not? Well, guess what? They’re still available for the taking. And apparently, they are going to be available indefinitely. But that’s not what I want to talk about really. The thing about Doyle’s Casino Online is that – like I said before – they offer much more than a diverse package of bonuses.

In terms of tournament play, Doyle’s Casino has long offered online blackjack tournaments – something which more and more U.S. facing online casinos are beginning to do. And, obviously, poker tournaments are a mainstay at Doyle’s Room (which yes, casino members can also sign up with). But until now – and I repeat, until now – Doyle’s Casino has shied away from slots tournaments. Perhaps wanting to draw more focus on the blackjack tournaments, I suppose the demand for slots tournaments is too great to ignore.

Kicking off the month of August, Doyle’s Casino is hosting “Grand Opening $50 Free Rolls”, taking place four times a day (12 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm, 8 pm) from August 2-7. For the remainder of the month, $50 freerolls take place twice daily at 5 pm and 8 pm (Eastern Standard Time). In addition to the freerolls, Doyle’s Casino is hosting weekly tournaments guaranteeing $750. These kick off every Saturday at 7 pm, and cost $10 to join.

For gamblers familiar with the Real Time Gaming online casino software platform, the Real Series of slot machines should ring a bell. In the case of Doyle’s slots tournaments, all action will be initially held on “Loose Caboose”, “Crystal Waters” and “Texan Tycoon”.

RTG Software Adds Two New Real Series Video Slots to Online Casino Games Portfolio

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Leading  U.S. facing online casino software developer, Real Time Gaming, aka RTG, has launched two new video slots, boosting their portfolio of online casino games to well over 125.

Although still short of the 200 mark, it’s only a matter of time before RTG’s online casino games portfolio reaches that milestone and earns bragging rights in the company of giants like Microgaming. And not that RTG doesn’t have anything to brag about already. In fact, their current portfolio beats out Rival Gaming, Vegas Technology and certainly gives Playtech and Cryptologic a run for their money. The only one standing out from the rest of the pack is Microgaming. And, as mentioned, nobody comes close to the size of Microgaming’s online casino games portfolio.

On the heels of St. Patrick’s Day, “Lucky Day” is an Irish-themed 5-reel, 25-payline video slot as part of RTG’s “Real Series” of slot machines (now over 60 games in the series). Offering a random jackpot and a free spins feature with a massive 3x winnings on six free spins and a 2x multiplier on the seventh free spin, while permitting a free spin retrigger up to five times (resulting in 35 free spins), Lucky Day has the potential of living up to its name.

For all the hockey fans out there, not to mention fans of free spin bonuses and random jackpots, Hockey Hero saves the day. An entertaining game that probably would have proven popular during the 2010 Winter Olympics, Hockey Hero offers 25 paylines and a chance to be sent to the penalty box for free spin bonuses. Not necessarily what you want to do in a real hockey game, going to the penalty box means more money and a chance at winning a 10,000 coin jackpot.

All Star Slots Faring Well Since Club World Casinos Buyout

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

It’s been nearly three weeks since the popular US facing online casino group, Club World Casinos, announced it had bought out the RTG-powered All Star Slots Casino, which is one of the Top Rated online casinos listed on the homepage of Online Casino Suite. However, the industry is still talking about the takeover, largely because it sheds some light on the inner working of Club World and the company’s current business model.

In a press release published through 24-7PressRelease, online gambling news and reviews site, Online Gambling Insider, discussed the buyout, offering a little more insight into the future of All Star Slots. And the future looks bright, my friends. Anyone familiar with the Club World Group knows they are a top-tier brand with an excellent reputation. Their longstanding Club USA Casino and the catchy Aladdin’s Gold Casino are shining examples of what will likely become of All Star Slots.

Club World has already given it’s magic touch to All Star Slots, updating the promotions page with Club World’s famous Daily Promotions, including $1,950 in Weekly Bonuses on top of All Star’s Welcome Bonus of 100% up to $787 Free ($10 more than Club Worlds normal welcome bonus). Granted, at the time this articles went to press, the All Star Slots website was running a little slow, and appeared to be catching a delay when transferring data from Club World’s servers. Most likely an integration snag, it will probably already be up-and-running at full speed by the time I finish typing this sentence.

Loyal players at All Star Slots have apparently been pleased with the changeover, despite some initial reservations. Considering this is the second time All Star Slots has changed management (they were the inaugural site launched under the new Wizard Gaming software platform), it’s understandable why some players were concerned. However, as Club World promised, the only thing that changed at All Star Slots was that there would be better promotions.

Looking back, the decision by All Star Slots to go to Real Time Gaming Software and then over to the Club World Group was a good one. Doing so has indeed insured All Star Slots would grow at a faster rate without incurring any dents in its good reputation along the way. How does that phrase go again? Oh ya, “You’re in good hands with All State”. How about, “You’re in good hands with Club World”. Read the OCS All Star Slots Casino Review for more information, or Visit All Star Slots directly.

Two New Online Casinos White-listed for Review at Online Casino Suite

Friday, February 19th, 2010

OCS is pleased to announce the latest online casinos to receive a green light for a listing and in-depth online casino review here amongst what we here at OCS and many seasoned online gamblers consider to be the best online casinos in business today. What is special about our latest addition (the name of which I’m not going to reveal until like the last paragraph of this blog post….A guy’s gotta stay true to his style, right?) is that not only does it offer a solid casino gaming package, it powers one of the most popular U.S. facing poker rooms in business today.

See, I’m giving you hints – you don’t need me to tell you the name. Alright already, here’s another one: Not only does this place have a solid casino poker offering, it is the namesake of one of the the most legendary and respected players in the professional poker circuit. Still not a clue? Okay, this guy has a fantastic nickname that rhymes with Lexus Molly, which just so happens to be the name of my ex-girlfriend. I’m just going to say it right now before you ask – I didn’t know “she” was a man, okay? Oh, you want to know about the name of the casino still?

In that case, for anyone more clueless than me who still doesn’t know what I’m talking about (don’t worry…I still don’t even know what I’m talking about), I am referring to the “Texas Dolly” himself, Doyle Brunson and his top-tier online gaming package – Doyle’s Casino and Doyle’s Room. No, not his bedroom silly – one of the fastest growing online poker rooms today.

Although two separate sites, after joining one or the other, you’re in the family, so to speak. And that, my friends – the concept of family – is one of the main reasons why OCS is excited to make Doyle’s Casino the latest addition to our online casino reviews directory. Now, don’t get me wrong, Doyle isn’t going to come bail you out of jail or let you borrow his car. However, his management promises they will be doing all they can to give you a top-notch online gambling experience.

Throw on top of that a solid lineup of bonuses, which include a 100% Slots and Specialty Games bonus up to $1,000 Free, new games bonus worth 150% up to $500 Free, unlimited reload bonuses worth 25% and a poker bonus worth 110% up to $550 Free, the best that RTG software has to offer, and you are looking at one of the best online casino poker sites in business today. The review will be published shortly, so be on the lookout for it! Oh, and you might have caught the title said “two new online casinos” as in more than one – Ya there is another – and it’s a biggie too. Stay tuned!

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. 🙂

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.

Read the OCS Club World Casinos Review for more information on this highly-rated, RTG-powered online casino group managed out of the UK.
