As you can probably tell from the name, Casino UK is a gambling site that wears its British pride on its metaphorical sleeve, or rather home page. The Union Jack features very prominently in its web design. You must be at least 21 to play, though a logo on the home page might suggest to some that the minimum age is 18. You can either play the Flash-based versions of the games posted on the site or download the gaming software into your own computer. In general, play by downloadable version is smoother, since your experience is less subject to the vagaries of internet connections.
Promotions and Bonuses
The promotions for new players at this site are quite attractive. It is true that the maximum welcome bonus is “only” £100, but this sounds great when you take into account the fact that you only have to put in £20 to get this bonus. In short, you get a great return on your investment. You can also start off your relationship with this site by claiming £1776 worth of free play, which you have an hour to use up. (As a side note, that amount seems rather ironic, since the year 1776 can refer to a not-so-great event in British history: the start of the American Revolution which would lead to the loss of British colonies in that part of the world. It really makes more sense for an American casino to use that amount—in dollars, of course—as a bonus.) You can also “tailor” your own bonus program to suit your playing schedule and habits. Furthermore, if cash doesn’t necessarily do it for you, you can set your sights on this pretty prize: a Caribbean cruise.
As appears to be the usual at good online casinos, this one purports to safeguard your data in transit with 128-bit encryption. If you look at the casino’s Banking page, you can also get more details on the various payment options available to you.
Safety and Security
This casino is home to over 450 games, which is really a rather impressive number, even compared to other good online casinos. Many of these games also come with progressive jackpots. You can get the latest in slots games, plus classics like blackjack and roulette.
This site shares its support system with several other affiliated online casinos. It does have its own email address, but the toll-free telephone numbers for various countries are shared. Unfortunately, this may cause congestion at certain times. On the plus side, live support is available round the clock every day.
The site itself can only be read in English, but support is multilingual. Email-based support can be obtained in the following languages: French, German, Swedish, Nordic, Danish, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese. If you like, you can also chat on-site with customer service staff.
It appears that US players are not allowed at the Casino UK, but if you wish, you can make inquiries about your particular state.
