Running on Microgaming’s award-winning software (it garnered “Top Casino Software” of 2004 according to Gambling Online Magazine), Nostalgia Casino is a worthy large-scale casino. Though it doesn’t look like it at first glance, Nostalgia is a promotions-heavy casino, with most promos linking specific casino games with specific days of the week. Nostalgia Casino Online is licensed and regulated in North America and adheres to the highest levels of fraud protection, privacy protection, reliability and security.

Software & Graphics
Microgaming’s flagship software – VIPER – powers all of Nostalgia Casino’s games. This program package offers the utmost in speed, reliability, and functionality, with such incredible features as advanced Autoplay functions and real-time strategy aides. Microgaming’s games are bug-free, their interfaces are intuitive, and their selection of games covers the casino gamut. If their graphics and sound were just a little bit better (read: more authentic and less hokey), they’d be the seminal gaming software provider bar none.
Over 140 of VIPER’s best games are offered here, including all 19 progressive jackpots currently available (at last count, totalling $2.4 million). This includes the million-dollar paying Major Millions slot, progressive Blackjack, progressive Roulette, and progressive Cyberstud Poker (most casinos only have progressive slots). Nostalgia Online Casino’s selection of games is comprehensive, covering all the usual table games, card games, a variety of video poker variants, and slots up the yin yang! You can even play 50 cent BlackJack and penny slots. A Flash casino is also available here for instant, No Download excitement.
