Virgin Launches New Blackjack Bonus

30 March 2011 by admin

The bonus is all new. And it if for new players to Virgin Casino. Blackjack players to be specific.

On the whole I do applaud Virgin Casino. They are a well-known and well-regarded presence in the European online casino community. They are also one of the few online casinos to be powered by multiple software providers; and really I do think it is the most well-known of the online casinos with multiple software providers, whose notables include Microgaming and WagerWorks.

But back to Virgin’s new player blackjack bonus. It is a 50% deposit match bonus worth up to £50. Yes, you read that right, only £50. Since a lot of our Online Casino Suite readers are Americans let me translate for you: £50 is only just over $80 in US money. So imagine depositing twice that only receiving $80. That is what UK blackjack players are facing, depositing £100 and only getting £50.

Now I know American online casino players have it rough with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) in place to try (keyword there is ‘try’) to stop them from gambling online—and really it is more of an annoyance than a really block. But at least US-facing online casinos give new blackjack players a better bonus than that. Check out what Rushmore is offering: a 200% deposit match bonus worth up to $2,000. Now with a choice between the UK equivalent to $80 or $2,000 what would you choose? As much as I like Virgin and their innovation, I cannot help but wonder if perhaps US players are better off not being able to play at Virgin.

But disappointment over Virgin’s new player blackjack bonus aside, Virgin is one of the leaders in online gambling and they do treat their players will. It may not come across in the blackjack bonus, but they do offer a range of other perks, such as the ability to earn player reward points that they can turn in for entry into special contests for prizes that include cars, trips and entertainment centers. And thanks to being powered by multiple software providers, they constantly launch new online slots games as well as other casino games. But their online blackjack offerings include Power Blackjack, 21 + 3, multi-hand blackjack and Bonus Blackjack for starters.
