The British theme (complete with Union Jack emblazoned shield) might be expected of a site called UK Casino Club, but players from Canada are also welcome. Powered by Microgaming, gamblers can enjoy over 550 games whether using PC, tablet, or smartphone, and have a great selection of slots and blackjack in particular. For more details on bonuses available, payment methods, and a top class licensing arrangement, check out our UK Casino Club review.
Newly registered players can take advantage of a welcome bonus worth up to £700. This introductory offer applies to the first five deposits, with the first matched at a rate of 100% (up to £100). The second deposit is matched at 25% up to £100, the third 10% up to £200, the fourth 25% up to £200, and the fifth deposit matched at 110% up to £100. The overall bonus amount of £700 is high but the actual match rate is significantly below average. The deal also comes with a 200x wagering requirement which is greatly inferior to the average (around 30x or so). The headline figure of £700 looks good but the Devil's in the detail, and the details are rather less appealing. For some more exciting bonuses with favorable terms, click here.
Players are automatically awarded VIP loyalty points as they play, as part of the Casino Reward Loyalty Program. Every 100 points earnt is worth a dollar in chips, and numerous promotions also provide the opportunity to earn more points. The program comes with six different ranks, the higher levels having new benefits, including exclusive games, birthday gifts, sweepstakes entries, and more. Enrolment into the program is automatic and free. Points may be redeemed at any time provided there's a minimum balance of 1,000 points.
Loyalty programs are pretty common as far as casinos go, and it's easy to see why. They're a persistent, low fuss way of fostering player loyalty whilst also rewarding players for things they'd be doing anyway (wagering). It's a good promotion, although a few more would not have gone amiss.
The ongoing promotion of the loyalty program is less flashy than the £700 welcome offer, but may represent a better deal.
The product suite of more than 550 games is provided by leading software developer Microgaming (free software may be downloaded or there's an instant play option). Slots fans have old favourites like the 243 ways to win Thunderstruck II and Game of Thrones, in addition to perhaps the most famous progressive jackpot slot of them all: Mega Moolah (with millions to win). However, high jackpot slots come with low RTPs (88% or so for Mega Moolah) so those who prefer consistent chances of small profits over a huge long shot might want to go for Wild Orient or Summer Holiday, which come with RTPs in excess of 97%. Microgaming has a fantastic and wide range of slots, and whilst a multi-developer site will always have more than a single provider the range is nevertheless very good.
There are dozens and dozens of types of blackjack to play, including Spanish Blackjack and European Blackjack, and just under a dozen varieties of roulette (with the classics of American, European, and French all on offer). Video poker fans (view our page on free video poker here) have around 50 or so games to play, with different types of Aces & Faces, Bonus Poker, Deuces & Joker and plenty more available. Table game fans also have a few baccarat options, and live dealer games for all the staples of the casino (excepting craps, although there is a non-live version). Plus there's a few scratchcards and some gameshow type games like Wheel of Riches.
Slots fans have a huge range of games, including many with tantalising mega-sized progressive jackpots. Card sharks also have a huge variety, particularly with blackjack and video poker, plus plenty of live dealer games to enjoy too.
