Promotions and bonuses
Casino Cruise certainly welcomes you on board with lots of tasty promotions and welcome bonus offers.
First up the flagpole is a Casino bonus that maxes out at $/€/£1,000, and is coupled with 100 free spins deposit bonus. This casino bonus is spread out over the first four deposits you make. It can be split at the maximum of 2 x $/€/£200, then 2 x $/€/£300, and matched 100%, 50%, 25% and 25%. The 100 free spins are available on Starburst as soon as you’ve made your first deposit, and are spread out over five consecutive days.
The wagering requirements are average – 40x the bonus amount only – but it’s only a two week cruise as players get 14 days in which to meet the requirements. There are also the game weightings to contend with:
Slots and ‘other’ games – 100%
All games under ‘classic’ slots – 75%
All table games and live dealer games – 20%
All blackjack and video poker – 10%
Classic blackjack gold and all aces poker – 2%
There are also some extra rules regarding the bonuses at Casino Cruise so it’s really worth getting to grips with them in their entirety before you sign up.
Other promotions run by Casino Cruise include ‘Tuesday Pool Party’ and ‘Friday Freebie’ and the chance to win a real-life dream cruise vacation.
When you wager at the casino you receive one Cash Point for every $/€/£10 you bet, and you can covert every 100 Cash Points you collect for $/€/£1 in real cash. The site has a Loyalty Program but at the time of writing it is in ‘coming soon’ status.
The VIP Lounge can be found on the Upper Decks. VIP Benefits include weekly cashback, VIP-only promotions, special gifts and faster withdrawals.
Casino Cruise boasts an impressive arsenal of 600 games. Categorisation, however, isn’t great: you’ll find versions of roulette and poker mixed in with slots. They also seem keen to push some of the lesser-known slots (Electric Sam? Gemix? Titan Storm?) as opposed to the tried and test top slots like Jack and the Beanstalk,and South park: Reel Chaos and Starburst.
The site has over 50 different versions of roulette, blackjack, casino poker and baccarat. Video poker fans can emulate the likes of Huck Seed with over 30 different variations of the game. There are a host of ‘classic slots’ that real-life video arcade fans will be familiar with, plus scratch cards and keno.There’s a live casino here as well, with software provided by live games specialist Evolution Gaming.
All the best games at Casino Cruise are provided courtesy of Microgaming and NetEnt, two of the biggest names in the casino software industry. Some other games are provided by NYX Interactive, Vivo Gaming and Play’n GO.
As of October 2015, the cruise ship offers a shiny new live casino courtesy of Evolution Gaming. You can play live blackjack, roulette and casino poker from the slickest dealers on the planet.
Available Software: Evolution Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, Nyx Interactive, Play’n GO, Vivo Gaming.
A nice and tidy range of cashier options from Visa/Maestro and MasterCard to eWallet providers: Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, iDeal, Ukash, Giropay, Sofort Überweisung and Euteller.
It’s a shame Casino Cruise doesn’t support Paypal for German players.
It certainly seems the good ship Casino Cruise has steered itself into a very popular port. The site design is exceptional, and there are more enough games to keep anyone entertained with all the top titles from Microgaming and NetEnt available.
Support is very good, with an extensive list of FAQs and contact information. There are no awful withdrawal limits, although the casino does say it reserves the right to pay out any win over £100,000 in installments. The only leak in the hull is the two week time frame to wager through the welcome bonus. Most casinos give you 30 days.
Your time at Casino Casino is very unlikely to leave you sea-sick. Why not hop aboard now and see if Casino Cruise is the right casino for you?
