Mega Moolah's review of Casino Action
Mega Moolah gamblers looking for a European casino site featuring hundreds of different game titles might want to check out Casino Action.
This casino property is one of a number of properties from a single operator that uses a similar theme across its entire portfolio. The operator is a member of the Casino Rewards program as well as the Interactive Gaming Council and is licenced by the UK Gambling Commission.
What makes this group of European casino properties different is the fact that they require desktop users to download and install the Microgaming software in order to play. This is not necessarily a bad thing if you have a PC running at least Windows 7. It however a problem if you are a Mac user. So Mac users should look for a casino that can be played in the Safari browser - to do that simply click on the Play Now button at top right of the screen.
The casino's Windows-only playing environment is definitely a negative for some players. But for others who do not mind downloading and installing Windows software, Casino Action does have quite a bit to offer. The software provide a quick access to all of the games including the Mega Moolah slot. That's what we will talk about in this review.
Starting with the casino's website, we were happy to discover that navigation is extremely easy. The Casino Action website is not the same cluttered mess we have observed at other online casinos. Rather, it is a crisp and clean environment with some of the easiest navigation you will find anywhere on the web.
The site's homepage is essentially a landing page that gets you to everywhere else you need to go. It features a language selection drop-down menu at the top followed by the site's main menu just underneath. From this main menu you can follow links to Casino Action's sign-up bonus, casino games, winners list, and contact page. You can also follow links that take you to the registration page or back home.
A banner takes up most of the space on the landing page. At the time of this writing, the banner displayed a brief advertisement relating to Casino Action's €1,250 welcome bonus, which is also available in dollars and pounds. It also contained two additional links: 'Play Now' and 'Download Software'. Both links redirect to the site's registration page. We also noticed that the two links are persistent. That is to say they appear on every page on the site, in multiple locations.
You will find seven additional site links in the footer. These are:
- About Us
- Responsible Gambling
- Fair Play
- Terms and Conditions
- Casino Affiliate Program.
Just underneath those links are icons with links to some of the industry associations and licensing authorities Casino Action is associated with.
Finally, the center section of the homepage is where you will find a selection of smaller banners touting some of the benefits of playing at Casino Action. Only one of those banners has a link; it is a link to the site support page. Support is available 24/7 via live chat and e-mail.
We found the site extremely easy to navigate overall. Despite its simplicity, the graphics are all modern and quite sharp. It is our opinion that the simplicity of this site is its strength. There is almost no way to get lost during navigation unless you purposely try to do so.
Casino Action games
Games are what it's all about, right? So let's get to talking about the games you can play at Casino Action. We will start with video slot games.
Casino Action's portfolio of slots include a bunch of titles you might already be familiar with. Mega Moolah is one of them. Video slot titles offer a range of exceptional bonuses and special features as well. Some games include the Gamble feature while others offer Free Spins bonus play. There is something for everyone.
Next up are the casino's selection of roulette games. Unlike some of the other properties offered by the same operator, Casino Action only offers two roulette games. One is a European game and the other is American; both play with standard rules, bets, and odds.
Moving on to blackjack, Casino Action currently has four different titles for you to choose from. These are:
- Blackjack Gold
- Vegas Strip Blackjack Gold
- European Blackjack Gold
- Atlantic City Blackjack.
The sample graphics for each of these themes shows that designers put a lot of effort into creating a beautiful blackjack experience. If nothing else, you are going to appreciate the visual appeal of these games.
Last but not least is video poker. Fans of video poker know that these games are reminiscent of 1970s video poker machines. If you don't know what that means, just note that video poker is presented with an arcade-style interface. These are not table games or live dealer games.
Casino Action currently offers five different video poker titles. Three are standard games while the other two - Progressive Supajax Jacks or Better and Jackpot Deuces - are both progressive jackpot games.
For the record, Casino Action offers more than a dozen progressive jackpot games covering all four game categories. Here at MegaMoolah.com, we are especially pleased to recommend Mega Moolah to players who appreciate progressive jackpot games. Mega Moolah consistently pays out some of the biggest jackpots online.
One last thing to note: if you click on the 'Casino Games' link on any page in the site then scroll down to the bottom of the new page, you will see a list of all the progressive jackpot games currently available. Each game will be represented by a thumbnail. You will also notice that the current jackpot for each game is listed. Those jackpots change in real time, as players play the associated games.
Bonuses and promotions
Casino Action offers a welcome bonus for new players. It is a progressive bonus that awards up to €1,250 over a player's first five deposits. This is how it works:
- First deposit - 100% match up to €150
- Second deposit - 50% match up to €200
- Third deposit - 25% match up to €500
- Fourth deposit - 50% match up to €200
- Fifth deposit - 100% match up to €150.
As a casino affiliated with the Casino Rewards program, Casino Action also offers a VIP club of sorts. You are automatically enrolled as soon as you start playing for real money. Every time you play, you earn points that can be redeemed for credits later. You will also have the opportunity to play for lucky jackpots three times a day and participate in special promotional offers as they come up.
All banking in the Casino Action software begins by clicking the 'Banking' link after logging in. The software will ask you to choose a preferred method for payment the first time you go to make a deposit. Note that you can change this preferred method anytime you want.
Casino Action offers numerous options for deposit, including:
- Major credit cards - Visa and MasterCard.
- Online payment systems - Skrill, Neteller, PaySafe, etc.
- Digital wallets - like UpayCard, for example.
- EFT operators - like Entropay for example.
As for withdrawals, we are also limited in what we can tell you. The website does not really explain how withdrawals work except to say that they must be facilitated through the 'Banking' link in the software. DBT/WIRE withdrawals are subject to a €300 minimum; all other withdrawal options are subject to a €50 minimum.
The Casino Action website says that withdrawals are held for two days, thus giving players the opportunity to reverse them should the need arise. This might be helpful if you are planning a withdrawal but then find yourself losing more than you had anticipated in the next session. Reversing your withdrawal will keep money in your account so that you can keep playing.
Casino Action is also available on mobile and tablet devices. You require only one account to access the casino from your Windows computer or mobile device. The mobile casino does not require you to download anything as all the mobile games are played in the mobile's browser. So there is no app to download and install. Simply point your mobile browser here and register.
Casino Action definitely offers some strong points to online gamblers who normally play on Windows-based computers. For example, they have more than 500 total titles to choose from. Many of them are progressive jackpot slots that offer pretty impressive payouts. The selection of table games is a bit more limited, but still adequate nonetheless.
The obvious downside to Casino Action is the need to utilize separate software in order to play. The casino would probably do much better if it got rid of the software requirement in favour of direct browser play.
