Casino Classic sounds like the kind of online casino that aims to provide its members with an authentic casino experience by providing a big selection of classic casino games in a classy, flashy, Vegas-style environment. After I signed up and had a look around, I was very excited to discover that this is exactly what Casino Classic is about! This online gambling site is as close as you can get to a real, live Casino experience without leaving the comfort of your home.
The casino is powered by Microgaming's awesome Viper technology. After I downloaded and installed the software (which was totally painless), I was greeted with a clean start screen with a great-looking interface and easy-to-read menus. From there I could choose which game I wanted to play out of a selection of almost 300 different titles. They have everything - lots of Video and Reel Slots along with a nice selection of Progressives, plus a variety of classic Table and Card games from Blackjack and Poker to Craps and Roulette. I didn't see any crazy arcade games, but since this is Casino Classic, I wasn't surprised. I decided to play some Video Poker as a free user, but after a half hour I got an itch to play for real money, so I made a deposit and went back for more.
The first deposit bonus is not too exciting - 100% but only up to $20. This is because of the other startup bonus they offer - 60 minutes to win as much as you can with $500! This is a risk-free bonus, and there are some rules attached, but if you win more than $20 after 100 bets, you can play with your winnings. I worked my way though and unfortunately I didn't come out ahead, but it gave me a great opportunity to try out the casino without paying a dime!
I was glad to see Casino Classic takes part in the Casino Rewards loyalty program. It's an excellent and well-known point-based program that basically pays you to play. Joining the casino automatically makes you a member, so it's very easy to use. I wasn't around long enough to take advantage of it before I had to write up this review, but Casino Rewards is an external program, so it is definitely honest and trustworthy - I am always glad to see casinos that use it.
Casino Classic operates out of Kahnawake, which has decent player protection offered by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. All payouts are monitored by a third party firm to ensure fairness, and all financial transactions are recorded and encrypted, providing ultimate security. Best of all, Casino Classic bears eCORGA's seal of approval, so you know for certain it's any potential player disputes will be handled in a diligent matter.
While I didn't play much beyond the 60 minute free-for-all which let me blow $500 of the casino's money, I had a great time at Casino Classic. It reminds me of the 'good old days' in Vegas - somehow this online casino really managed to capture something special about the whole experience and package it into their site. I can't explain it, and in the end it doesn't really matter - what matters is the fact that Casino Classic truly is a classic casino!
