One name that is constantly in the public domain is the Virgin brand along with its owner, Richard Branson. So when I came across the Virgin Casino, I just had to check it out and see what was on offer. And I was glad I did, because what this casino gives is a whole range of superb games and a bucketful of bonuses to get you to sign up and play these games.
As the name automatically suggests, the Virgin Casino is part of Virgin Gaming, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Virgin Group. This casino has all the hallmarks of a Virgin Group member – great look and feel, exciting games and promotions and superb customer support. The casino was launched in 2004 and is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) in Alderney (Virgin Gaming is also licensed in Malta). Players from the USA are not accepted at this casino.
Virgin Casino Promotions
I have been to quite a few online casinos in all these years, and seen quite a few mind-boggling promotions. While the promotions at Virgin casino are not quite in the category of mind-boggling, they are good enough for players to want to come back for more. The opening bonus I got at this casino was a 200% welcome bonus up to £200 on my first deposit. What I quite liked was the number of promotions for players. These included a referral bonus, a reload bonus (200% up to £200), weekday bonuses, weekend bonuses, and more. There are also exciting bonuses for mobile casino players. Besides, I was also given access to the VELOCITY Rewards loyalty program once I started playing here. Access to this rewards program gave me access to V*POINTS, more bonuses including weekend and birthday bonuses and more.
Software and Games at Virgin Casino
One of the first things that struck me about Virgin Casino was the range of exciting games, all vibrant and rich in graphics and sound effects. The casino does not run on software from just one provider; it uses software from multiple online gaming software providers, including Microgaming, IGT, and Ash Gaming. All the games are available in instant play Flash mode, which meant I did not have to go through the process of downloading the software to my computer. There is also a mobile casino that is available for players looking to play at this casino from their mobile phones.
Another thing that I loved about Virgin Casino was the range of games available. The casino has an exciting range of slots along with all the other online casino games that you see at other casinos – table games, card games, roulette, video poker, scratch cards and progressive jackpots. I was thrilled to try out some of the newest slot games, such as Jekyll & Hyde, ELVIS® The KingTM, The Dark Knight and other equally fun and exciting games at this casino.
Banking at Virgin Casino
I always prefer making my online casino payments through NETeller, and was glad to see that it was one of the payment methods that Virgin casino recognised. The other payment methods that the casino supports include credit/debit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Maestro), Skrill, PayPal and bank transfer. Transactions at the casino are in GBPs (£) for the sake of convenience.
Customer Support at Virgin Casino
I was quite impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of the customer support team at Virgin Casino. A team of dedicated professionals is available 24×7 to cater to players. I had the option of contacting them for answers to my queries through live chat, telephone and e-mails.
To sum up the Virgin casino experience, I had a really good time at the casino, and all without having to keep my guard constantly up. What this calls for possibly is a repeat visit.
