Review of Villento Casino & the Time Of Your Life Sweepstakes
The world of online gambling is alive and well at Villento Casino, an online casino property powered by Microgaming titles. The property is part of a portfolio of properties offering a similar theme and game inventory. If you are looking to gamble online in a modern digital environment, this casino certainly fits the bill.
You can play at Villento Casino with either a desktop PC or mobile device. More details on that later. For now, it's enough to know that PC players running a Windows-based computers can also download and install the deluxe casino software.
Villento Casino a website that is available on all devices adjusting to each device nicely. For this review, we will concentrate on the desktop site. The site features elegantly modern graphics that look good in just about any browser. You will also notice a scrolling page layout that looks pretty slick.
At the top of the page is the site's main menu. This is the menu you will use most often to navigate. It contains a number of links to the most important sections of the website - including the homepage, the Casino Games page, and the Winners List page.
Underneath the main menu is the site's primary banner image. This will take up the majority of your screen. Like all the other casino sites in the portfolio, the banner gives you a hint of the casino's current sign-up bonus. It is worth £$€ 1,000 in total at the time of this writing.
Under the welcome bonus message are two buttons. These buttons are persistent across all the site's pages, and they appear multiple times per page. These buttons are as follows:
- Play Now - This button functions differently for desktop and mobile users. Desktop users can click it to automatically open software already installed on their computers. Mobile players can tap it to begin play in their browsers. If a player has not yet signed up as a site member, clicking or tapping the button will redirect the browser to the sign-up page.
- Download Software - This button is only relevant to PC players. Clicking on it will take players to the download page where they will sign up before downloading the software. Once the software is installed, the button doesn't do anything.
It is obvious that Villento Casino wants players to click one of these two buttons. As previously stated, they are both persistent and appear multiple times on every page of the site.
Underneath the banner is a ton of promotional information you will probably want to read through before you start playing. Pay special attention to the blurb about high payouts and lucrative bonuses. Villento Casino specializes in big payouts. They claim on their website that their games have an RTP of 97%. But that's not all. Villento Casino also has a good number of games with sizable progressive jackpots.
The website footer
It is pretty common for people to ignore website footers. That's unfortunate because they often contain a lot of helpful information. The footer on the Villento Casino website consists of several more links along with information about the casino's licensing, auditing, and payment options.
Villento Casino games
You'll find all the usual game categories at Villento Casino. Everything starts with slots. The selection of slots includes both classic 3-reel and modern 5-reel games with titles you're sure to recognize. Play Mega Moolah, Jurassic World, Thunderstruck II, Game of Thrones, and many more classics. The casino boasts around 550 games in total.
They also have video slots offering progressive jackpots. Mega Moolah is, of course, among the most popular, but also Major Millions, King Cashalot and Treasure Nile, plus many more. Also note the availability of all sorts of game enhancements including bonus play, Wild and Scatter symbols, free spins, and even the venerable Gamble feature.
Above and beyond video slots, you also have access to:
- Blackjack - It is hard to imagine a casino environment without a few blackjack tables. Well, Villento Casino has good news for you: they have more than just a few tables. They have a complete selection of blackjack titles based on Atlantic City, Las Vegas, European, and classic games.
- Roulette - Roulette players are not forgotten at Villento Casino either. Once again, the casino offers a full variety of games based on European, American, and French rules. Each of the games has a slightly different presentation, so players who appreciate variety have plenty of choices to work with.
- Video Poker - Fans of old-school video poker games first introduced in the late 80s and early 90s will feel right at home here. Villento Casino offers dozens of video poker games that remain true to classic graphics and sound effects.
Progressive jackpot games
Earlier in this review we mentioned that some of Villento Casinos video slots offer progressive jackpots. Well, you can get in on progressive jackpots even if you are not a big fan of video slots. A number of the casino's table games also offer progressive jackpots.
You can see a complete list of progressive jackpot games, and the current value of their jackpots, by clicking on the 'Casino Games' link at the top of any page. Then just scroll to the bottom. This is a handy way to quickly find out which games have the highest running jackpots.
Bonuses and promotions
Villento Casino offers a 1,000 welcome bonus to all new members. This is a progressive bonus that pays out over five deposits. So to enjoy the full value, you'll have to make five deposits of differing amounts. Here's how it works (all available in £$€):
- 1st deposit - receive a 100% match up to 150
- 2nd deposit - receive a 50% match up to 250
- 3rd deposit - receive a 30% match of up to 200
- 4th deposit - receive a 20% match up to 200
- 5th deposit - receive a 50% match of up to 200.
The obvious goal is to keep you coming back and making future deposits. Though it may seem like more trouble than it's worth, the progressive nature of this welcome bonus might be better for you in the long run.
Villento Casino is a member of the well-known rewards program. This is a 6-level VIP loyalty program that awards points, prizes, and other special offers to players who play regularly.
You don't need to do anything special to become a VIP member. Just make your first deposit and start playing. Every player who bets real money is automatically enrolled. The more you play, the faster you move up the 6 levels. Higher-level members enjoy more valuable points, special promotions, birthday gifts, and a lot more.
Time Of Your Life Sweepstakes
This is one of the most exciting benefits of the rewards program. By playing at e.g. Villento Casino, you'll be rewarded with automatic entry into the Time Of Your Life Sweepstakes.
The higher the Status Level you reach, the more tickets you will have in the Sweepstakes, and the more chances you will have to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences and prizes. Some of these prizes include first-class travel, electronics, tickets to major sporting events, and similar.
Villento Casino doesn't offer a whole lot of information about banking options on its website. However, their FAQ page does say that they support a variety of banking methods including credit cards, wire transfers, prepaid cards, electronic payment systems, and even cryptocurrency.
Scrolling down to the bottom of any page on their site reveals a rotating icon in the lower left corner. This icon displays some of the payment systems Villento Casino supports. Names like EntroPay, Skrill, Visa, and Neteller all appear.
As for withdrawal options, there is even less information on the Villento Casino website. All the site says is that there is a 300 minimum on DBT/WIRE withdrawals. All the other withdrawal options have a 50 minimum. Also note that withdrawal requests are held for two working days before funds are released. This gives players the opportunity to reverse a withdrawal request should they change their minds.
Don't worry, once you login to the website you will see the full banking options.
Mobile play is definitely supported by Villento Casino. Fortunately, there is no app required. That's why you won't find a "Villento Casino app" in either the Android or Apple stores. However, you must have a relatively modern mobile device with a browser that supports HTML5.
As for desktop users, they have to run a Windows-based computer with either Windows 7, 8, or 10. A modern browser and the Adobe Flash Player is also required. There is no dedicated software for Mac or Linux computers.
Everything you could want in an online casino is available at Villento Casino, with the exception of live games. This modern casino property offers more than 550 games covering all the usual game categories. They also offer 24/7 live support by way of online chat, e-mail, or toll-free telephone.
