Our review of the Casino Classic website and their latest offer
Online gambling by way of Casino Classic is pretty easy and straightforward. This casino property, which is part of a portfolio of properties from a single operator, is built around simplicity and ease-of-use. The mindset behind Casino Classic is its strongest point.
As you go through this review, bear in mind that there are a few aspects to Casino Classic that are a bit different. First and foremost is the fact that you need to download the high-definition casino software to your Windows computer. The software does offer a much better player experience than playing directly from the browser.
For desktop PCs and laptops, the software is Windows-only; you must be running Windows 7 or better. Mac users are out of luck unless they can get a Windows emulator to work. Mobile users are perhaps better off because they can play directly from their mobile browser. The games have been developed in the latest HTML5 format, which is basically a new version of the markup language that most websites use these days. The main difference between HTML and HTML5 audio and video integral parts of HTML5.
Also note that the software on all devices downloads information pertaining to each game as you play it. The amount of data downloaded is minimal. You are still connecting to the game online when you play. With all that said, let us get to the rest of this review.
Remember that you only need to register one account. The logins will work for your HD software and mobile.
All the casino properties in this operator's portfolio utilize the same basic set up for their websites. Casino Classic's homepage is really just a landing page with links to every other area of the site. You will find the site's main menu at the very top, positioned to the right side. You have multiple links in this menu:
- Sign up Bonus
- Casino Games
- Winners List
- Contact Us
- Play Now.
Perhaps the most interesting link is the 'Winners List' link. Click on it to be redirected to a new page featuring a lengthy list of the casino's most recent winners. There are drop-down menus that allow you to filter winners as you see fit. Note that you can go as far back as 2010.
Winners are presented in a table format, with each entry including the winner's initials, the amount that person won, the date his or her win was registered, and the game being played at the time. We are happy to say that Mega Moolah makes the list quite frequently. As you probably know from browsing the MegaMoolah.com website, this is no doubt the web's most popular video slot games because of the size of its jackpots.
Getting back to the homepage, there are two persistent links that appear in multiple locations on the page. One is a 'Play Now' link and the other is a link to download the software. Clicking on either one does nothing. We assume this was just a glitch at the time this review was written; perhaps it has already been fixed.
The rest of the homepage is dedicated to convincing you to play at Casino Classic. There is no doubt they offer plenty of viable reasons for doing so. For example, new players can take advantage of a €500 welcome bonus (also available in pounds and dollars). More on that later. Other reasons for playing at Casino Classic include:
- More than 550 titles to choose from,
- support available 24/7,
- rewards from the rewards program, and
- the ability to play on multiple devices.
Unfortunately, there is no way to preview Casino Classic games through the website. This is one feature other casinos offer that Casino Classic does not. Moreover, it is not possible to see the full list of titles Casino Classic offers without registering first. That is another disadvantage.
On a more positive note though, Casino Classic is a member of both the Interactive Gaming Council and the Casino Rewards program. All its games are tested and certified by independent auditors.
Casino Classic games
The games at Casino Classic begin with video slots. Are you interested in classic slot titles that feature 3 reels and traditional symbols like cherries and 7s? You'll find them here. You will also find more modern titles, like Thunderstruck for example. Casino Classics' video slot selection includes more than 500 different titles. Mega Moolah is obviously the top offer on the website.
All the rest of the games are divided into the following three categories:
- Blackjack - The blackjack games are what we in the industry call 'table games'. They are video simulations featuring high-quality graphics and great sound effects. Casino Classic offers a bunch of blackjack options including both classic and European-style blackjack.
- Roulette - Like blackjack, roulette is a classic casino game with worldwide appeal. Casino Classic offers both European and American roulette games for your playing enjoyment. Each of the games offers an exceptional presentation that looks as authentic as it could be without actually being live.
- Video Poker - You couldn't operate an online casino without offering video poker, could you? Well you could, but Casino Classic doesn't attempt to do so. Their selection of video poker games hearkens back to 1970s era poker machines. Choose your favorite game and start playing with bets as low as 0.25.
Some 15 of the games found at Casino Classic are progressive jackpot games. Again, Mega Moolah slot comes to mind instantly. You can see a complete list of progressive jackpot games along with their current jackpots by clicking the 'Casino Games' link in the site's main menu.
Bonuses and promotions
If you prefer playing at online casinos that offer sign-up bonuses, you're in luck at Casino Classic. Their sign-up bonus is worth up to a total of €500 spread across your first five deposits. Get a 100% matching bonus of up to €100 on your first deposit, then follow that up with additional matching bonuses on your next four deposits.
The progressive nature of Casino Classic's welcome bonus is designed to keep you coming back. More casinos are adopting this format as a way to help players continue playing without draining their bankrolls.
As previously mentioned, Casino Classic is a member of the Casino Rewards program, the most prolific such program in online gambling. Casino Rewards offers a points-based system for redeeming credits that players can use to gamble with. The program also offers special promotions from time to time, as well as daily jackpots and other prizes.
If there is any negative to the Casino Classic bonuses and promotions it is the fact that they only have one deposit bonus. We have seen other online casinos that offer multiple deposit bonuses, some of which are tied to a player's chosen deposit method. But still, €500 in welcome bonus money is nothing to sneeze at. Casino Classic is generous to offer it.
How many Mega Moolah spins will the bonus give you? €500 in bonus cash will give you 2000 spins on the Mega Moolah slot! Plus your own deposits, you could be spinning Mega Moolah on autoplay for hours!
You will be pleased to know that Casino Classic's banking options are pretty extensive for both deposits and withdrawals. Some of them are listed below. Note that all options may not be available in all jurisdictions or with all devices. The only way to be sure of the options available to you is to download the software, install it, login, and go to the banking page.
Here are your deposit options:
- Credit cards - Visa, MasterCard, Maestro
- Bank wire transfer
- Electronic check
- PaySafe Card
Here are your withdrawal options:
- Credit cards
- Bank wire transfer
- Electronic check
- Visa Electron
Please note that there may be fees and charges associated with your preferred banking method. Any fees or charges will be listed in the banking section of the software for your perusal. Should you have any questions about banking options, you can always contact support.
Mobile play is definitely supported by Casino Classic. If you have a modern mobile device, you shouldn't have any problem playing Mega Moolah or any other Microgaming mobile-ready game. Casino Classic supports Samsung, Apple, HTC, Sony, and LG devices, along with more than a dozen lesser-known brands. Tap here if reading this on mobile.
Casino Classic is a very nice online casino with more than 550 games for you to choose from. We are not so thrilled about the fact that players must download and install software to play, but at least it's not limited only to Windows-based PCs. You can play using a mobile device if your PC runs another operating system.
We are also happy with Casino Classic's selection of progressive jackpot games. Progressive jackpots are where the real action is, and more and more online gamblers are focusing their efforts on these kinds of games. So two thumbs up for that.
