A Mega Moolah players' perspective: Captain Cook’s Casino
Captain Cook's Casino is based on the famous explorer who lived initially in Norfolk but earned fame traversing the high seas. The casino that bears his name is certainly a fitting legacy, given how popular the casino is with slot fans and casino enthusiasts alike.
So what is it about this particular Microgaming casino that has so many customers signing up and playing? In this review, we examine the key elements of the site before we give you our verdict on how well the site performs.
Let's begin with arguably one of the most appealing aspects of the site, which is the famous Captain Cook's introductory offer in which new new players looking to spin the Mega Moolah slot can deposit just £5 (also available in dollars and euros), and will receive 100 Chances on the Mega Moolah.
Without doubt, one of the most appealing aspects of Captain Cook's Casino for customers, is the sites great value welcome bonus for new players.
The bonus begins with a simple offer. New players simply need to deposit £5 into their account and for this they will receive £25 in bonus cash added to their account. Now you can use this bonus cash to play a selection of games, but most people use it to play through 100 Chances to win on the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot.
With your £5 deposit offering you 20 spins, plus a further 100 spins available through the bonus, this means that your £5 deposit will actually allow you 120 Chances to win a million playing Mega Moolah, which is one of the best value methods to begin playing the popular slot you can find anywhere online.
In addition to this initial bonus, new players also receive Match Bonuses on their next four deposits too. Your second deposit will receive a 100% Matched Bonus of up to £100, your third is a 50% Matched Bonus of up to £150, while your fourth deposit is a 25% Match Bonus of up to £125. Finally, your fifth deposit is another 100% Match Deposit bonus of up to £100 meaning you could earn £475 in additional bonus cash alongside your second to fifth deposits.
When it comes to starter bonus offers, there is no doubt that Captain Cook's Casino's deal compares favourably with so many other offers available online and it is this which makes the site so initially popular, especially with fans of the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot.
