First Impressions: A
Cruise Ship You Will Definitely Want to Board
ship-themed site reminds me of a recent cruise I’ve taken and creates a positive feel
from the very beginning. But it’s not just my good memories that make the
webpage look great, it’s actually very attractive, fun and inviting. I love the
creatively executed Chat "window“ which is designed as an anchor,
lowering as I scroll down the page so it stays in my view the whole time. A
quick check of the "Browse by category“ button, positioned next
to the featured games, opens such user-friendly filtering options that I’m thinking
this site will be super-easy to navigate. Numerous social network icons
positioned at the bottom further indicate Casino Cruise understands its
audience and is not afraid of potential negative impact of this highly viral
media. My first impression? I’m impressed!
Welcome Bonus: Set Sail
really can, provided you register and deposit a minimum of Â£20. Purchasing
boarding ticket makes you eligible for a Â£1,000 Welcome Bonus and 100 Free
Spins – not bad at all! True, you will not get it all at once. The first
deposit comes with 100% match up to Â£200 plus the aforementioned Free Spins.
The second one will be matched 50% up to $200, the third and fourth with 25% up
to $300 each. Free Spins will be delivered over 5 consecutive days, 20 per day,
and you’ll get to use them (surprise, surprise) on Starburst. If you don’t like
this game – tough!
All bonuses, including
Free Spins, come with 40x wagering requirements – pretty standard. Video slots
contribute 100%, classic slots 75%, all table games and live games 10% and,
finally, Video Pokers 5%. Again, standard. Pay attention when you choose your
banking method because deposits made by Skrill and Neteller will not qualify
for this offer.
Dear oh dear, where to start? Pool Party takes place every Tuesday and boosts your
balance by 25% up to Â£100. Weekend Freebie awards players who have made a
deposit and played during the week. While no specifics are given, reading the
respective T&C indicates you’ll be receiving Free Spins. Monthly Splash
Bonus allows you to claim two 50% reload bonuses up to Â£100 each month.
Captain's Treasure delivers free spins daily, but not to all. Only 100 lucky
buggers are randomly selected to receive this gift each day.
is also an opportunity to win a luxurious cruise to the West Mediterranean.
Every Â£50 you deposit until 31st March 2017, gets you one raffle ticket.There
is only one prize, but boy, doesn’t it sound great: an all-inclusive 7-night
trip for two aboard Royal Caribbean International, which departs from
Barcelona. Reading about all this cruiser has to offer, I wanna go!!
win a luxurious cruise
calm down, there’s more goodies to pick up here. Would you like to earn cash
with no wagering requirements attached? Do I even need to ask? Cash Point promo
is basically offering just that: play, collect points and exchange them for
free cash. You’ll receive 1 point for every Â£10 bet made (on video slots) and
be able to exchange 100 of them for Â£1 cash. Minimum amount for conversion is
1,000 points and you can redeem up to Â£5,000 in cash bonuses monthly. Unless
you’re a VIP, in which case this amount goes up to Â£20,000.
Clearly, VIP players get
to enjoy additional benefits, so how to become one? The Casino says: â€žOnce
you’ve earned the required points, our VIP department will contact you personally
to extend an invitation“. They don’t tell me how many
points I need exactly, so I guess I just have to play like crazy and keep my
fingers crossed I get invited to the Captain’s Club.
Deposits & Withdrawals: OMG,
methods currently available include debit and credit cards (Visa and
MasterCard), E-Wallets (Skrill,
Neteller, Eco, Moneta), Paysafecard, Bank Transfer and about a zillion Instant
Banking options. The latter include iDeal, Euteller, Sofort, WebMoney, GiroPay,
Dotpay and about 20 others. Oh yes, there are also 3 mobile payment methods,
namely Dotpay SMS, Zimpler and Payforit. Wow!! The minimum deposit accepted is Â£10 and the max you’ll be allowed to pay into your account in any one
transaction is Â£5,000.
Withdrawal requests will
be processed instantly (!!!) if you’re using one of the E-wallets and should
take 3 to 4 working days in case you opted for credit/debit cards or Bank
Transfer. You’ll be able to withdraw the maximum of Â£22,000 per month and no
more than Â£5,500 per week. Unless, again, you are a VIP.
Great Variety of Casino
Casino Cruise offers a
fantastic collection of close to 800 games developed by top software providers.
Microgaming alone is accountable for about half of the games available, so if
you’re a fan, look no further. NetEnt, Play’n Go and Nyx are also well
represented, each with about 100 various products. With such an abundance, good
filtering options are super-important. Games can be displayed by category,
alphabetically and by the provider – not bad, but there’s room for improvement. Clicking
the Collections tab will reveal several themes, such as Animal Lovers, Film & TV, Science Fiction and
a couple more.
I’m ecstatic seeing that
games can be accessed online, no download needed (honestly, my free disc space
is down to a minimum and I’d struggle to do it). Can I play for fun? Well, yes,
I can – Practice button launches
the game immediately, while I’m not logged in.
I’m counting about 600
slots and, scrolling down (little Chat anchor faithfully following), it’s clear
all of the popular titles as well as new releases are accounted for. Wait, what
is Turning Totems doing in the Nyx section? Clearly this is a Thunderkick
product which delivers a fun execution of spinning reels. Another one which
doesn’t belong is Taco Brothers Saving Christmas (you have to try hugely
entertaining Wild Escape Bonus Game), developed by Elk Studios.
So what is there that’s
actually from Nyx? Manic Millions is a fun take on Frankenstein theme and
Justice League lets you play with all your favourite DC Comics characters. You
can also enjoy Merlin’s Magic Respins, interactive and innovative slot
packed-full with lucrative features, and another highly-rewarding Nyx classic,
Foxin’ Wins Again.
As far as NetEnt goes,
everything you know and love is here, including the inevitable Starburst. But
as you’ve surely already played that one many times, perhaps you’d prefer to
spin the reels of a newer release such as Warlords: Crystals of Power.
I will not even try to
list popular Microgaming titles; if you saw the number of their featured games,
you know you’ll find just about everything here. Including the new Tarzan.
Looking at Play’n GO collection, I can see all of my favourite games, namely
Riches of Ra, Energoonz, Pimped, Eye of the Kraken, Grim Muerto, Hugo and 7
Sins. Heck, I could stick around forever.
If you like your fruits,
play the popular NetEnt’s Jackpot 6000 or Jackpot Jester 50,000 from Nyx, the
latter giving you a chance to collect as much as 50,000 coins. Highly volatile
Break Da Bank Again is riding on the success of its 3-reel, 5-payline
predecessor. Irish Gold by Play’n GO provides wild pot of gold and scattered
clover, making it a simple and fun choice for you traditionalists out there.
Jingle Bells by Microgaming has long been one of the most popular classic slots
around, for reasons I can’t explain. Perhaps it’s due to the fact it can pay up
to 6,000 times the wager, provided you play all 5 paylines?
classic delivers 50,000
you ever dreamed of getting rich overnight? Well, why take so long when all it
takes is one spin. Casino Cruise offers about 20 progressive jackpot games
which include some
of the most generous ones in the online gaming world. NetEnt tempts us with
Hall of Gods and its Â£1.5 million jackpot, and Â£2.2 million Mega Fortune. The
most rewarding Microgaming progressive jackpot games include Mega Moolah
(wouldn’t mind winning that one!) and King Cashalot.
Majority of 20+ live
table display 24/7 opening hours so you can indulge in your favourite live
casino game whenever you feel like it. Courtesy of Evolution and SG
Interactive, fans of live action get to play European, French, Immersive and
Roulette Dragonara, join one of 10 Blackjack tables with different limits, play
Baccarat or Baccarat Squeeze, and Casino Hold’em.
In my opinion, Evolution
Gaming is one the best providers of live games out there. Apart from
continuously proving to be innovators, their games come complete with a choice
of game views and features such as Chat, Game History, Statistics, Hot and Cold
numbers and more. Their Immersive Roulette was awarded EGR's Game of the Year
2014, and rightly so. As the wheel is spinning, you can see and follow every
movement of the ball, in 200 frames-per-second HD video and a slow motion
replay of the winning number/colour.
Casino Cruise library
provides more than 60 table games and I consider that to be a serious
proposition. Every popular Roulette
variant is here,
including English and Multi-wheel. Numerous Blackjack
games give you a choice
of Vegas Strip BJ Gold, Spanish 21, Hi-lo 13 European and many other
interesting varieties. Cyber Stud, Oasis, and Triple Pocket Hold’em are some of
the poker games available. There is only one Baccarat
table added to the mix.
great roulette selection
Perhaps poker fans, like
myself, will enjoy Video Poker section more, simply because there are 30+ games
to choose from. Apart from the usual Deuces Wild, Joker Poker and such, we can
also play Louisiana Double and All American.
fancy a game of Louisiana
Wow, this library just
keeps on giving! Among almost 60 other casino games, you’ll find a good
selection of virtual games, some Scratch Cards and possibly one of the best
collections of Bingo. Samba Bingo, Electro Bingo, Pharaoh, Mayan, Bingo
Bonanza... some of these I’ve never even seen before! Should you not be happy
with the amount won as the result of numbers drawn, Pharaoh and Mayan Bingo
will let you buy additional balls to potentially increase your win.

Cruise is There For Me – Whenever, However
A convenient Help button
placed on the right opens up a helpful menu which allows me to access FAQ,
Rules and Payment sections, or contact the Casino directly via Live Chat, phone
or email. They are also offering to call me back, an option I don’t think I’ve
seen elsewhere. Nice! An additional piece of good news is that support staff can
be reached 24/7 so you’ll never be stuck for long. I read that Casino Cruise
boasts one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios, another guarantee assistance
will be given immediately.
if that wasn’t enough, this is one online gaming establishment which is truly
active on social networks so you can also use Facebook and Twitter to engage
into one-on-one communication.
drop them a line on
After having checked all of
the above, I have no doubt mobile site will not disappoint me. And indeed it
doesn’t! Launching it on my Android tablet, it looks great, is easy to navigate
and offers loads of games to play when I’m away from home. If 350+ gaming
options, including numerous live games, don’t satisfy you, then I don’t know
what will. The only thing I’m missing is my faithful companion, the little
I’m kind of a
perfectionist and will therefore always find something that should be improved.
But to be honest, this time I’m struggling. Casino Cruise simply has it all!
Secure, friendly and fun, it provides tons of options when it comes to games,
promotions and banking options. They are there for you whenever you need them,
doing a great job with the mobile offering and numerous contact options to be
used any time of day or night. So what can I say, except: board this cruiser at
once and start enjoying its amazing offerings as soon as possible.
