Phone Vegas Casino Review – Huge, Generous but Unoriginal
Some online and mobile casinos get really out there and conceptual with their name choices, but the folks over at Phone Vegas have decided that there’s nothing better than doing exactly what you say on the tin. Clearly paying homage to the gambling mecca that is Las Vegas, this mobile casino makes it clear what experience it intends to give players – like playing in Vegas, but on your phone.
The question is, however: how well do they achieve this goal? In our opinion, pretty bloody well. Phone Vegas has the distinct advantage of running on ProgressPlay software, meaning that alongside a wildly impressive collection of slots and pretty much every conceivable casino games, from every conceivable developer, the casino also boasts easy accessibility, navigation and banking options coming out of every orifice.
Oh yeah, and there’s those bonuses…
In the early days of online and mobile casinos, it would have been considered pretty impressive for a single casino to boast as many as 20 games on their sites, but as technology has improved, so have our expectations grown. Now you can expect as many as 20 developers to be represented at a casino, with dozens of games from each of them, and that’s exactly what the case is at Phone Vegas.
Games titles are sourced from all over, from developers you’ll know all too well – like Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, and Thunderkick – to those you’re likely to be less familiar with – like Igaming2go, Betdigital, Extreme Live Gaming, Core Gaming, and Chance Interactive.
If you thought the list of developers present at Phone Vegas is impressive, wait until you’ve checked out the list of game types available to play at the casino. Among the slots alone, you’ve got everything from the most basic, 3 reel classic slots, all the way up to the most state of the art, flashy video slots, and of course, plenty of progressive jackpots on top.
If you’re not feeling slots, you can play everything from blackjack, keno and roulette to video poker, scratch cards and Hi-Lo games. For the most immersive experience, we’d recommend trying out the many live games the casino also has on offer.
Bonuses and Promotions
Sure, any casino can serve up an impressive selection of games, but that’s worth nothing unless they can back it up with a compelling collection of promotions and bonus offers. Luckily for players at Phone Vegas, this is exactly what the casino has on offer.
It has to be said, although the promotional offers for returning players are pretty impressive, the welcome bonus itself is relatively conservative. There’s a 100% welcome bonus, which means you’ll get your first deposit doubled, up to £200. This isn’t a huge amount, but it is certainly better than average, so it’s hard to complain. Also, given that returning players always have a bonus or two to claim, it’s hardly unfair.
So, what do returning players have in store for them? Well, first up there’s the recurring weekly bonuses, which see you able to enjoy offers like the Monday Madness promotion or Live Dealer Cashback every seven days. Then there’s the seasonal promotions – a selection of offers that’s constantly updated, and syndicated by ProgressPlay, meaning oversized prizes and rewards.
Like most of the great stuff at Phone Vegas, the high quality of the depositing and withdrawal options is another element where the site has ProgressPlay to thank. The developer and game provider has ensured that all players have the chance to deposit and withdraw in a method which suits them, thanks to an extensive choice of banking options.
As far as straightforward cards and transfer options, you can deposit and withdraw using Maestro, MasterCard, and Visa, and use a number of bank transfer services (like instaDebit, WebMoney, Sofortuberwaisung, and GiroPay). On top of all this, there are e-wallet and e-wallet like services such as Neteller, Paysafecard, and Skrill. Finally – this being a casino with ‘phone’ in the name – there’s the super mobile friendly depositing methods in the form of Trustly and Pay by Phone.
Who Should Play at Phone Vegas?
God, it feels so trite wheeling out this old line again, but with so much on offer, it’s hard to imagine anyone who wouldn’t have a great time paying at Phone Vegas. There’s so many games on offer, and always a promotion or other offer to claim, that it lends itself to any player looking for a good time.
Our final verdict, however, has to take into account that there’s very little in the way of originality to be found at this casino. While you’re always guaranteed to have a great time at a casino operated by ProgressPlay, that doesn’t get rid of the constant reminders that you are playing at a ProgressPlay site. The games roster is – while huge and impressive – very predictable, and the syndicated promotions – while reliable – can be found at countless other ProgressPlay sites.
Don’t get us wrong, we’d highly recommend anyone give Phone Vegas a play, but don’t expect something beyond all previous experiences.
