The past week has been a great week for us since we signed up a bunch of quality online casinos. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better Vegas Crest Casino pops up. We covered the site from all angles and a couple of things stood out for us: We’re impressed with the size of the operator’s game library (420+ games)-size does matter after all! The weekly promotions are bang on, the welcome bonus offered to newbies is huge, live chat support and the rewards (loyalty) program ranks up there with the best.
Is the casino licensed and does it accept players from the United States? You bet, the site is regulated by the Curacao Gambling Board and the license number is 1668/JAZ. If you are from the States you must be 21 years or older to play here. International players are accepted too but the minimum age is 18 years.
Restricted countries: Most African countries, countries from the Middle East and Asia. To find out if your country is on the excluded list click on ‘Terms and Conditions’ and check under the heading ‘Eligible Players’.

Hope you’re sitting down because the size of the bonus offered to first time customers is a home run. The total bonus package is worth 500% up to $2,500 but it’s divided into 2 deposits along with 100 free spins-crazy I know. The first match bonus is 200% up to a $1,000 plus 30 free spins on Pinocchio and the second one is 300% up to $1,500 and 60 free spins to play Fruit Zen slots.
A cash out is allowed once you’ve completed the play-through of 30 times the deposit and bonus sum. Slightly steep but I’ve seen far worse. When it comes to the completion of the roll over bit, the weightings of the games differ. For example, all slots, bingo, keno and scratch cards contribute 100% while table games (Red Dog, Three Card Rummy, Texas Hold’ em) count 25% and video poker 10%.
The bonus works like this. Let’s say you deposit $200, since it is a bonus of 200% the casino will match your bonus with another 200% ($200×200%=$400). You can now play with $600 instead of $200. This is the amount that must be cleared (30x$200+$400=$18,000) before you can cash out any wins.
Vegas Crest also offers you a no deposit bonus of 10 free spins to play Betsoft’s Tipsy Tourist. Our exclusive 25 free spins offer (no deposit) trumps this one (pun intended), it’s available to all players who sign up through Casinowhizz.com. The bonus will be credited to your account once you’ve provided this code: ”WHIZZ25FREE”. The maximum cash that can be won with the free spins is $100 and the WR (wagering requirement) requirement is 99 times.
Once the bonus storm has passed the casino offers regulars daily and weekly promotions in the form or free spins (social media), cash tournaments and a slew of bonuses.

Mobile And Casino Games
Mobile players have not been given the cold shoulder. That said, the games that can be played are not as extensive as those available on desktop but the variety is still pretty darn neat. The site supports Androids, iPhones, ipads, tablets and desktop devices. The Betsoft slot machines have high-definition graphics and tend to lag on certain mobile devices. If it happens you, reduce the graphics settings and make sure your Wi-Fi is on, otherwise the game will deplete your data bundles pretty fast.
The collection of games listed at Vegas Crest Casino is mind boggling. The site teamed up with 4 software providers such as Betsoft, VistaGaming, Rival and Saucify. As always, the bulk of the games are slot varieties followed by table games, progressive jackpot slots, video poker, keno and bingo. The software can be downloaded onto your PC or the games can be played in your browser.
Where do I start? A host of slot machines divided into 3D, 3 and 5 reel classics, iSlots (Rival), chain reactors and exclusive slots grace the menu. 3D slots that deserve a shout out are Great 88, Alkemor’s Tower, Rooks Revenge, Birds, The Tipsy Tourist and Arrival. The reason why I mentioned these games is because they’re flushed with excellent graphics, free spins with multiplier wins, wilds, scatters and top jackpots. If you’re looking for slots with a twist but in a good kinda way, Rival’s iSlots have captivating themes with impressive storyline’s and a bunch of in-play bonus modes. The Saucify and VistaGaming slots are good too but not near as good as the Betsoft ones.
The table game variety is not as extensive as we would have liked but still adequate nonetheless. Here you can play blackjack varieties (American&Roulette), three card rummy, red dog, pai gow poker, baccarat and All American.
11 video poker games divided into 1, 4 and 10 hands are listed. They include the likes of Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better Saloon, Double Bonus Poker, Joker Poker, Jacks or Better, Bonus Deluxe, Deuces and Jokers and 10’s or Better. Just like table games, video poker favors the player and not the house. Their RTP’s (return to player percentage) are 97% plus, if you’re good at playing video poker this is the way to go. However, you must understand the odds, betting strategy and hand ranking of the game you’re about to play. Always double check that you held the right card, if you have three ‘8’s’ make sure that you held all three of them.
A nice bouquet of scratch cards, keno and bingo games round off the operator’s impressive suite of games. Popular titles include Candy Keno, Scary Keno, Keno BBQ, Vegas Jackpot Keno and Sudoku. I’ve never been a fan of scratch cards but I must admit they’ve become quite popular with players in recent years. Here you can try out Cast for Cash, Cavalier Cash and Beach Bums.
Only 8 progressive games are listed, at the time of writing the total progressive jackpot pool stood at $342,000 and counting. Popular games are Jackpot 5x Wins and Money Magic.
The support at Vegas Crest Casino is as good and available around the clock. The staff can be contacted through email ([email protected]), live chat and fax (00356) 2133 1804, U.S players must dial 011. I’ve tested the site’s email support and received a reply within 4 hours, I guess it’s because I’m on the other side of the Atlantic (UK). I tested the live chat as well and spoke to a chap named ”Julian”. He walked me through the bonus terms, comps and promotions in a jiffy, no problems here, the lad knows his stuff.
Security And Trustworthiness
The site employs highly encrypted 128 SSL software that protects your private information. Rest assured that your residential or financial details are safe, they will not be sold nor traded to any third party.
I’ve done a bit of digging to see if there have been any player complaints concerning the veracity of the games-none came up, another box ticked. TST (Technical Systems Testing) is the company that frequently tests the RNG of the games to ensure that they are safe and that they give the player a fair chance at winning. Just a pity it does not post the findings of the audit report on its web page.
For a U.S-facing casino the deposit and withdrawal options listed are good. You can fund your account with one of the following: Visa, MasterCard, standard bank wire, Neteller, Skrill and EcoPayz. Deposits are instant while withdrawals via credit cards take 2 to 3 working days, ewallets usually same day and wire transfer can take a few working days.Click to collect: 500% up to $2500 signup bonus
