Here’s the best thing about Casino Cruise , hands-down; Casino Cruise Bingo! Say what? B-I-N-G-O! I love this game in the real world and I love that there is one that has a BINGO room (okay, LasVegas USA links to FestiveBingo, so there are at least two). Granted, Casino Cruise ‘s bingo room is actually a sister site but it’s run by the same folks and there’s a revolving door between the two.
As a casino goes, Casino Cruise is as good as any other mid-sized casino – and that’s great. On the plus side – Listen Up Slot-Heads – they have 20-line slots – and a lot of them; on the minus side, they’re only two (albeit decent) promotions are their signup bonus and VIP club/loyalty program. Still if you love Bingo, there’s no good reason not to play here. If you like tournaments, contests, and giveaways (oh yeah – and personalized customer service), you may look elsewhere.
Bonuses & Promotions
The signup bonus of $777 is two-fold: 100% up to $300 on your 1 st deposit, 100% up to $477 on your 2 nd. Their VIP club is multi-tiered with increasing awards in such areas as: ongoing deposit bonuses, accelerated comp point award-rate, and insurance on account balances, Sadly, the bonuses and promotions stop here.
Software & Graphics
Casino Cruise runs on RealTime Gaming software, a fast-rising up-and-comer in casino software, found on a lot of the small, niche-market, theme-oriented sites. Real Time games are lightning fast and have dazzling graphics and sound. The interface is just about as intuitive as its larger competitors, and the games suffer from no annoying technical glitches that I could find. All in all, Real Time Gaming software deserves the acclaim it earned last year as “Top New Casino Software.” Micro gaming, watch out!
Just over 50 games makes this (bingo) casino a compact little (bingo) place to play (bingo bingo bingo). As I also mentioned above, they’ve got a number of 20-line slots here. If you play slots, why wouldn’t you play 20-line? They also have the million-dollar paying WinAMillion slot. They have a sizable selection of Video Poker games here too. They do not, however, have Roulette (a deal-breaker for some, I understand). No Keno either, and no real “bonus” games – beside bingo.
Payouts, Cashouts & Security
Casino Cruise Online withdrawal policies include a 4-7 day wait to receive funds, a $4000 maximum withdrawal amount sent per week, a $30 fee for any cheque requested of less than $500, the ongoing possibility of being asked to verify your I.D. by faxing back a downloaded form and official verification from the bank issuing said credit card. Ugh! Casino Cruise is approved by SafeBet a “well-respected gaming operation” that independently tests their games. They use 128-bit SSL encryption technology, so your transactions are secure and your private information is safe.
Support is minimal here – a definite area for improvement: an email address and a CA, U.S. toll-free number.
