Although Party Casino is a large site that could easily make players feel like "just a number", this Alderney/Gibraltar licensed entity does a stellar job at giving players individualized attention (especially if you are a high roller), as well as fostering entertainment, ease of use, reliability, safety and security - Party Casino's stated mission. Case in point is the fact that Party Casino's 5-Star rated customer service operations assigns dedicated hosts for regular players. Furthermore, Party Casino is one of the few online casinos offering live dealer gaming (Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat), which certainly gives a more personal touch to internet betting. Check out the dealer's profiles on Party Casino's website. They are a great bunch of young ladies from Latvia.
The major plus side about Party Casino being so large is that it draws a huge number of tournament and progressive jackpot players, which equates to larger-than-average jackpots. Take a look at Party Casino's Recent Winners page to get an idea of the numbers paid out. Over $35K was dished out in progressive jackpots today (at the time of this review) - and that's not even counting any large jackpot wins. The week before the publication of this review, a Party Casino jackpot paid out nearly $70,000, two weeks prior to that over $50,000 to a lucky winner, and three months prior a whopping $4, 978,336 jackpot went to a single player.
Party Casino is not open to players in the U.S., but they certainly are elsewhere in the world - most notably in the UK and Europe. Powered by a iTech Labs (Australia) RNG fairness approved proprietary software package with licensing rights to games found on the Cryptologic and Wager Works software platforms, Party Casino certainly provides for a comprehensive selection of casino games, as well as the aforementioned wagering niches. This is precisely what many players like about Party Casino - the ability to navigate between sports, poker, casino and more with a single wagering account.
In terms of funding said wagering account, the Party Casino Pay-Pro cashier system, which uses 128-bit encryption via Thawte Web security services, offers approximately twenty different ways to get money into a real money betting account, including inter-account transfers - depending on one's country of residence. The same goes for withdrawals. For more details, Party Casino publishes a comprehensive listing in their FAQ's (section 3.1 through 4.4). Some of the more popular methods for UK players now include PayPal, Visa Electron, Switch/Maestro/Solo, and of course, Neteller.
In terms of promotions, Party Casino is seriously hard to beat, albeit their welcome bonus isn't the largest, per say. The standard welcome bonus is worth 100% up to a total of $500 Free on four deposits. The first deposit earns 100% up to $200 Free (Bonus Code: MATCH100), while the next three subsequent deposits each earn 100% up to $100 Free. Regarding the wager requirement, Party Casino does not impose the traditional play-through, but instead requires that players earn a minimum number of Party Points. For every 4 Party Points earned, $1 in bonus money will go toward the play-through. All games contribute a different amount of Party Points, with slots contributing 1 point for every $10 wagered and Blackjack contributing 1 point for every $200 wagered. As you can see, it gets complicated. To simplify, if you wager on slots, it will take $40 for every $1 in bonus money, which amounts to a 40x play-through - Not the best out there, but decent.
Party Casino makes up for any lag in welcome bonus terms by offering a solid selection of ongoing promotions, including monthly player bonuses, tournaments and the very popular Race to the Top promo, which gives away thousands of dollars to players each month just for playing a select casino game. At the time of this review, Party Casino was giving away a share of $150,000 across two leaderboards. Each month, there's a new game to play with bonus incentives, including a select handful of the most popular branded games from the top software developers in operation today. Games like Cubis, Bejewelled, Monopoly, Resident Evil, Marvel Superhero slots can all be played under a single roof, as opposed to opening accounts at multiple online casinos.
As mentioned, Party Casino is not open to players in
the U.S. currently. However, most players elsewhere in
the world are eligible to open a free account and test
out Party Casino's dynamic wagering platform with
fun-money credits or the real thing with any deposit
amount of your choice.
