This is a classy, classy site. UK Casino Club was first licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission in 2000. With a wide range of betting limits, from 1 cent to $500, UK Casino Club has plenty of action for all bankrolls (and comfort zones). The games are run by Microgaming’s new VIPER software, the award-winning flagship program by an award-winning industry leader.
Bonuses & Promotions
After making your first deposit, and presumably claiming the $125 signup bonus, you immediately begin earning UKC reward points good for real cash back into your account. One particularly exciting promotion is Super Saturdays, when every 30 minutes a new cash prize winner is randomly drawn from logged-on players.
Software & Graphics
UK Casino Club Online is powered by Microgaming Software, a consistent award winner, most recently earning Gambling Online Magazine’s prize for “Top Casino Software” for 2004. Running Microgaming’s most recent upgrade, their flagship -VIPER- you can now look forward to expert customizable options, advanced autoplay features, and a real-time strategic analysis of your gameplay, all with a suave British graphical theme.
The games at UK Casino are standard for the industry in content – slots, video poker, table and parlor games, progressive jackpots, Keno, etc. – but where VIPER excels (and UK Casino Club benefits) is in the quality of these games. Though I’ve always found Microgaming games to be a bit cartoonish (flat and flashy), that doesn’t make them any less playable. The functionality is superb, the pace zips right along, the bugs and glitches are minimal to nil, the interface and navigability are commonsensical and, most significantly, the quantity of new offerings to choose from grows monthly.
Payouts, Cashouts & Security
Select from a host of currency options – great for all those players not residing in the United States – and an even wider selection of payment options. UKCasinoClub’s payout percentages (and the random number generators for Roulette and Blackjack) are regularly audited by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the results posted openly on the casino website. Players can keep track of all their gaming actions using the included PlayCheck software, and all financial transactions using CashCheck, also included. UK Casino Club includes links to half a dozen child protection software packages and has a keen age screening process to ensure no underage players wind up on their site.
Their live chat team is exceptional and their email support crew promises to respond to all inquiries within just 30 minutes. But a fully searchable FAQ helps solve most player issues without the need arising to even bother calling in the big guns. That’s my favorite kind of support, really: like ice cream – self-serve.
