Latest Promotions: Jackpot City, Lucky Nugget and Roxy Palace

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

uk online casino bonusesHere are the latest promos, bonuses and other various events taking place currently at some of the best UK casinos online today! The first two up, Jackpot City and Lucky Nugget, are both from Belle Rock Entertainment, the sub-company owned by Carmen Media.

Jackpot City Casino‘s Double Deposit Bonus provides a 100% deposit match for new players up to $500 over their first two deposits. This is an extension of Jackpot City’s original 100% deposit match up to $200. New players will now get an additional 100% match up to $300 on the second deposit they make as well. This has been in effect for awhile and it will probably stick. Also, the Oktoberfest in July Promo is happening right now and provides up to $500 in bonus action for existing players. This casino has an active Facebook page and is updated regularly with offers and announcements.

Sister casino to Jackpot City is Lucky Nugget, where two immediate bonus schemes are available – and both have to do with your bankroll! The High Roller Bonus offers a 100% up to $1000 on your first deposit, and the Player Bonus is for 150% up to $200 on your first deposit. Lucky Nugget also currently hosts Free Spins Mania that provides continual free spins action on some of its most popular slots. The Free Credit Frenzy offers free credits on various games, while the Loyalty Program awards players with Loyalty Points, which vary from 1-3; given for each $/£/€ 10 you deposit, depending upon the games you play. Slots play earns the most Loyalty points, which can be converted into casino money. At this time, Lucky Nugget has a Facebook page, but it is not nearly as active in use (providing promos and updates) as Jackpot City is.

Lastly, you’ll want to check out Roxy Palace, where there are also two immediate bonuses to consider for new players – the Welcome Bonus offers up to £350 free on your first two deposits (100% match up to £150 on first deposit and 25% up to £200 free on second deposit) and the No Deposit sign up offers UK players claim to a free £10 chip. The Roxy Palace VIP option is probably your best bet right now, as this is the kind of casino where you simply phone in and demand VIP status. Depending on how much you plan to play, a personal assistant is basically assigned to you, and will help you manage your account and provide you with heightened amounts of bonuses and promotion solutions.

For some UK online casino action, these three destinations are worth a gander at the very least. All of these online casinos are worth a friendly personal chat or phone call to customer service for even more detailed daily, weekly and monthly events.

Virgin Casino Launches Noah’s Ark Slot; More Weekly Promos

Friday, June 4th, 2010

noahsark2Virgin Casino, a gaming arm of Virgin Games, has announced the launch of a new video slot machine from WagerWorks. Noah’s Ark is the newest offering from this incredibly popular online casino. Noah’s Ark is a 30-payline video slot game that has a unique Split Symbols™ feature. The Split Symbols™ feature counts as two different symbols instead of just one. This offers a twist to the traditional video slot game where a winning payline can has over 10 matching symbols.

Warren Eloff, Product Manager at Virgin Casino, is quoted as saying, “WagerWorks have created yet another fantastic slot. Noah’s Ark is one of many great recent additions to our ever expanding casino, which offers games from a number of top developers. With the delightful animating animals that celebrate wins, the Split Symbols feature and free spin bonus, slot fans will love playing Noah’s Ark and enjoy winnings of epic proportions!” Virgin Casino has over 200 casino games and it is one of the most popular online casinos in the UK and throughout Europe.

Virgin Casino has a new slot game, which despite it’s name, isn’t just for the devout. Well, then again that all depends on what one is directing their devotion toward. If its spinning the slots, then by all mean, this new game is sure to please. Introducing “Noah’s Ark” video slot – a highly entertaining game with 30 paylines of action and a unique split feature that can create up to ten matching symbols per payline. Along with a free spin bonus, the action at Noah’s Ark is nothing short of biblical proportions.

If you need to see for yourself, just Visit Virgin Casino and open a free account to test Noah’s Ark out for free with unlimited fun money credits. Heck, while you’re there, be sure to check out their Recent Real Money Winners. You might even be inclined to take advantage of their standard 100% Match £100 free welcome bonus with 25x play-through on all slots, instant win games, Phantom Belle video poker and Ten Play Bonus Video Poker.

And if you are totally blown out of the water by Noah’s Ark (no pun intended), Virgin Casino is offering a special promotion from Monday, June 7th through Friday, June 11, 2010, in which they are giving away 20,000 in bonus cash. Simply wager a minimum of £175 on Noah’s Ark (as well as other select games) to earn a £5 bonus and a maximum of £3,500 to earn a £100 bonus (subject to wagering conditions) each day during the promotion period.

If you don’t want to wait until June 7th to get started playing with free money at Virgin Casino, and would rather pass on the 100% Match Bonus, Virgin is giving away a solid reload bonus right now. It’s worth 50% up to 75 Free and has a play-through of 20x. The bonus code is RELOAD, and while there are several game restrictions, this is a good offer for anyone who has played at Virgin before and still has an account in good standing.

With a name like Virgin Casino, one might just wonder if experience has got anything to do with running a successful online casino. And not that Virgin Casino hasn’t experienced the roll of the dice, the tossing of the roulette balls, obtaining a BJ on the felt tables (okay, I’m going a little bit overboard with the sexual innuendo’s aren’t I?) – the title of “Virgin” simply comes from parent company, Virgin – you know the one that has business ventures in everything from transportation to music.

More specifically, Virgin Casino is a branch of Virgin Games, which was launched in 2004 and also manages a poker room and online bingo room. One of the top UK facing online casinos in business today, Virgin Casino also has good “cred” due to their licensing of Wager Works online casino software. Wager Works is a subsidiary of the renowned land-based slot machine manufacturer, IGT, whose reputation precedes itself. Furthermore, Wager Works is a beacon for regulatory compliance, having received accreditations from Technical Systems Testing (TST), Gaming Associates and ongoing compliance with the UK white-listed Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

Our only complaint about Virgin Casino is their slight lack in transparency. For one, they do not provide links to monthly payout reports. Perhaps, with a branded name like “Virgin”, management thinks there is no need to be transparent with players. However, in this day-and-age of competitive and sometimes dangerous online gambling waters, it would serve Virgin Casino to be more forthright with the online gambling community. A good example would be 32Red. Better yet, just visit the OCS Best UK Casinos page for our top picks.<

Casino Splendido and 32Red Thunderstruck With Ongoing Promotions

Friday, May 14th, 2010

You’ve probably heard by now that Microgaming has launched the new, highly anticipated “Thunderstruck II” video slot. All of the top Microgaming online casinos are talking about it – and better yet, many of them are hosting ongoing promotions in honor of what will very likely turn out to be one of Microgamaing’s more popular video slots, and even more popular than the original “Thunderstruck”.

Not every Microgaming online casino has integrated “Thunderstruck II” on their downloadable software platform. Of those that have, 32Red and Casino Splendido were amongst the first. Considering both of these sites offer a great lineup of promotions to begin with, “Thunderstruck II” or no “Thunderstruck II”, there is lots of free money and extra comp points up for grabs at both of these eCOGRA approved online casinos.

A quick rundown on the promotions offered at both casinos are as follows:

Casino Splendido is still offering their 100% Match bonus worth up to £120 Free with a 30x play-through (all games eligible for play-through according to tiered percentage scale). Their ongoing current promotions include a slots competition (May 14-17) – in which EVERY qualifying player will receive a cash prize and the top three winners will go on for a chance at winning £4,000 – and double comp points on the following select games (May 13-16): Great Galaxy Grab, Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword, Big Top, Stash of the Titans, Adventure Palace, French Roulette, Roulette Royale, Multi-hand European Blackjack, Poker Ride and Aces & Faces Video Poker.

32Red Casino is still giving away their amazing 320% welcome bonus worth £32 Free for every £10 deposited up to £320 Free. The play-through is 30x, and all games go toward meeting it, except for Craps and Megaspin slots. Also, please note there is a maximum stake or coin equivalent of 6.25 per bet until the play-through is met. Ongoing promotions include “Ruby Tuesday” which awards double comp points on the following games (currently): Thunderstruck, Magic Multiplier, Spring Break and Sugar Mama. Every Thursday is “Red Letter Day“, which is a pot of 1,000 free chips shared between five randomly selected active players. Returning depositors in the month of May can receive a 100% bonus up to £32 Free (in addition to regular Club Rouge loyalty bonuses).

March 2010 eCOGRA verified payout percentages at Casino Splendido averaged at 95.87% for all games, slots returned 94.91%,  poker games at 96.77% and table games paid out a whopping 98.73%. Not bad to say the least. As for 32Red Casino, payouts here average an impressive 97.54% on all games, with slots coming it at 95.9%, table games at 98.8% and poker games almost siding on the players advantage at a sharp 99.3%. To put this in context of actual winnings, yesterday’s top winners at 32Red were valued at £6,545 (Neil W.), £5,035 (Mark H.) and £2,822 (Donghong L.). As for Casino Splendido, their top winners this week included £3,000+ wins on Avalon and Texas Bonus Poker Gold, £2,000+ wins on Major Millions (5 Reel), Mega Moolah, Cashapillar, and multi-hand Atlantic City Blackjack, including four separate wins on Thunderstruck II. See there, I told you Thunderstruck II was going to be popular. 🙂

Inter Casino Gets Makeover in More Ways Than One

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

If you haven’t been over to Cryptologic-powered Inter Casino in the last few months, now is a great time to give the “oldest” online casino in business today, a visit. I say “oldest” in parentheses simply because there are other online casinos sure to argue they were launched before Inter Casino, but if you ask me – all things considered – Inter Casino is the oldest, having launched in 1996.

So, what’s all this fuss about dropping by Inter Casino these days? Well, most importantly, there are some great new bonuses and promotions being offered for non U.S. players right now. Secondly, Inter Casino has received a huge design makeover, pretty much making their website entirely unrecognizable to players who knew it since, well, pretty much since it was launched nearly fifteen years ago.

At first, I thought the extent of Inter Casino’s makeover was a little too much, but then considering how long Inter Casino has kept the same look going, it made more sense they were feeling the need to give their image a complete makeover. It’s like that pair of jeans you’ve grown so used to wearing. Sure, they do the job and stay on your butt, feel comfortable and  look nice. But times are a changin’, and fashion/design is especially an evolving phenomenon.

This also explains Inter Casino’s recent decision to launch a Twitter page and tap into the booming social media networking sector. A smart decision, if you ask me, for there is no denying the role of social marketing in an increasingly competitive World Wide Web. The fast-paced world of Twitter seems especially suited to the ever-changing online gambling industry.

For more information on Inter Casino, as well as all of the new promotions and bonus offers being offered, including a 100% slots bonus up to £125 Free and a 100% games bonus up to £80 Free, read the OCS Inter Casino Review. The new logo will give you a taste of the new design.

Last Day to Claim 100% up to $8,000 Free at Casino Tropez

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.

Inter Casino Using Twitter Quiz to Give Away Free Bonus Cash Online

Wanna Follow Inter Casino at Twitter?

Wanna Follow Inter Casino at Twitter?

Using Twitter for business networking certainly isn’t a new concept. In fact, I believe Twitter gets more social networking action than both Facebook and Linkedin these days. However, using Twitter to give away exclusive online casino bonuses, well, let’s just say that’s a little more of a novel approach to sending out the Tweets. As for online casinos using Twitter, I can probably count them on one hand. Ya, I use my fingers to count, so what!?

One of these Twitter-centric online casinos is the highly rated, UK-based Inter Casino, which happens to be a familiar name on the reviews pages here at OCS. Come to think of it, Inter Casino is pretty familiar name period. I wouldn’t necessarily say a household name (what casino is?), but a familiar one at least! In business since November of 1996, Inter Casino is arguably the oldest online casino in business today, and has certainly been around the block a few times.

On one of these recent laps around the block, Inter Casino noticed Twitter – or at least decided it was night time to put the social networking service to the test. Judging by their tweets, it looks like they started using the service less than four months ago. Impressively, they already have over 70 followers, and as of yesterday (that I know of), have begun giving away free no deposit cash bonuses as part of a tweetin’ quiz promotion. Now, 70 followers may not sound like much considering there are tweeter with thousands of user’s. But the fact is that many people use Twitter just to gain a large following, but don’t even listen to the Tweets. Inter Casino seems to be taking the approach of building a steady and community of followers who are either in the business or love to gamble online.

As for their latest tweet quiz, the first person to have tweeted back the answer to how many months Inter Casino has been online was given £10 free. And considering they actually reveal the month they were launched, anyone who can do a little math will know the answer. Read the OCS Inter Casino Review for more information.
