Vegas Country Casino Review

No U.S. Players Allowed @ Vegas Country Casino
Vegas Country Casino:

Vegas Country is actually a casino I played at years ago. I remember having one session where I had such bad luck that I never went back! However, with this Microgaming-powered casino having been around for a good few years, and with a need to do another Online-Casinos.com review, I decided to go back to see what's new at Vegas Country Casino.

As with many Microgaming-powered casinos, Vegas Country does offer a flash no-download option. However, I always opt for the Viper Download version, as it contains all available game and in my opinion offers a better 'entertainment factor'. Thankfully, downloading is not difficult at Vegas Country, with the initial download file being just over 5mb in size.

Registering at Vegas Country is made easy, thanks to a use-friendly form that must be completed by all new players. As I had my account from a few years ago I didn't have to go through this process. However, for those thinking of registering, new accounts can be created in US$, Euros, UK £ and Canadian $ dollars. My old account was denominated in US$, but this was fine and as such I simply logged in to the casino using my existing username and password.

One of the really great things at Vegas Country Casino is that new players are able to test the casino with real money without making a single deposit. This is because within 24 hours of registering a new account, the casino will credit that account with $11 (or currency equivalent). This is a great offer, and although the chance of winning much with this money is slim, it's a brilliant way to see if the casino plays well or not.

Of course, some people will take the plunge straight away and make a purchase, and these people are also rewarded with a match bonus worth $100. This can be coupled with a e-wallet bonus of $20, and so in total it means a $100 purchase could be met with a bonus of $131 if all bonuses are claimed. This is pretty impressive, and will certainly entice many people. Unfortunately I wasn't eligible for any bonus this time around, and as such simply made a $100 credit card purchase. Incidentally, a good variety of deposit options are available, including a number of online wallet solutions.

Vegas Country Casino is loosely based on a country and western theme. However, apart from the odd image of a cowboy with a guitar or a pair of saloon doors, this theme is not taken too seriously. However, that's probably a good thing, as I know not everyone is not a country and western fan! As such, the lobby is pretty generic, with a standard menu system splitting games down by type. As with many Microgaming-powered casinos, the range of games available at Vegas Country is quite simply awesome.

Usually, I start my play at a casino with a little Blackjack play. However, when I was scrolling through the menu to decide on a table to play, I came across and entry for multi-hand 3-Card Poker. Having not seen this before, I decided to see what was available.

I discovered that this is actually a 5-spot table. I like 3-Card Poker anyway, but I quickly realized that some huge profits could be had here. If the dealer has a poor hand or even a no-qualifying hand, the pay back could be decent. Of course, the opposite is also true, where a strong dealer hand is likely to win against all hands a player has in play. Thankfully for me, lady luck was definitely on my side and within just a few games I was dealt a straight flush. This is the best possible hand and with a set of other good hands on the other spots, I actually won $240 on a single hand.

The thing I quickly liked about Vegas Country though (apart from the great win!), was that the games are presented in a very pleasing way. I liked the use of red felt on the table, and along with the smooth game play and good graphics it's clear to see why Microgaming-powered casinos are often liked by players. The configurability of the casino is also appealing - game speed, sound effects and background sounds are all things that can be configured by the user. On some games there are also 'Expert' functions that detail the best play that can be made, or can even play automatically for the player.

Those that know me will know that I like a gamble at the Blackjack table, and even though I got side tracked with the multi-hand 3-Card Poker, I couldn't resist checking out the Vegas Country Blackjack selection. From what I could see, I think Blackjack fans should be pretty happy. There is a great selection of games following rules from around the world. For example, European Rules BJ, Atlantic City Rules BJ, Vegas Strip BJ and Downtown rules BJ all sit side by side in the Country Vegas lobby. There is also a good variety of multi-hand games are for those that like to chase jackpots, a progressive game can even be found. When it comes to betting limits, many of the games have the low minimum of just $0.50, and a high limit of $200. This is impressive, and considering multi-hand games allow up to 5 spot bets, the maximum acceptable bet of $1000 per round should satisfy most players.

I did check out some of the other table games available at Vegas Country Online Casino, but with a desire to try and keep my balance intact, I decided next to try out the online Video Poker games. With a huge selection of Video Poker games available I could see that I needed to be careful not to bet away all my money!

When it comes to the Video Poker games available - again, Vegas Country Casino holds its own very well. A great number of games are available including a number of wild card games and classics such as Jacks or Better or Aces and Faces. For those that like multi-hand games, the selection will satisfy them too. Many of the games are available in 4-hand versions and even in 10, 50 and 100-hand varieties. With games like Supajax, there's even the opportunity to grab a progressive along the way!

Unfortunately, I didn't really get anything great while playing, although I had enough wins to stop my balance being seriously depleted. I think I did so well because, like with the table games, an 'Expert function' is available, which will either tell the person the right cards to hold or, when selected, can hold these cards automatically. However, the thing I really liked is that you can have the game monitor your play and tell you of any mistakes you make. As such, you can still have a think about the best cards to hold, but are corrected if any mistakes are made. With some games running at near 100% payback, there really is a lot of play to be had at the Vegas Country Video Poker machines.

When it comes to online slots at Vegas Country Casino, again I cannot say anything negative about the selection of games available. A good thing I've noticed with Microgaming-powered casinos is that new slot games seem to be released every month or so, which is definitely a good thing. I like the fact that the slots are all quite varied as well. From simple three-reel slots to multi-line video slots with bonus rounds, the selection really is great. Vegas Country is also home to the Major Millions game, which has an ever increasing jackpot - in the past it's hit for just under 2 million dollars!

I did try the relatively-new Dolphin tale slot machine, but while I liked the graphics on this slot, it seemed to pay out pretty poorly. As such, I decided to check out the brand new Chocolate Factory slot, a game that was released only a few days before I chose to play.

This game is a video slot with 9 pay lines. With a player able to bet up to 5 coins per slot, this means the max bet per spin is 45 coins. I think this is a pretty nice amount of coins per spin (not too many like with some games) and it meant that I could comfortably afford to bet at the 10 cent coin level (at $4.50 per spin).

The aim of the game is to line up matching combinations to receive nice pay outs. However, with a few sub games also part of the game, big wins can be achieved through activating the bonus games. I was lucky enough to line up three symbols to activate the 'pick it' bonus round. Here a player can select a treat to dip in chocolate. Pick wisely, and a nice present is then revealed! The treat I selected won 375 coins, although this may not seem much, I was still happy to receive $37.50 payback for my $4.50 bet.

Unfortunately, I got a bit carried away during my slot play and ended up losing back around $150 of my bankroll. However, I think this is actually a testament to the fun-factor that's built in to the slots available at Country Vegas. The graphics are really bright and attractive, and from what I experienced, the games play incredibly smoothly. The games also have great sound effects, and with many of the games being fully user-configurable, I can see why people like playing at casinos such as Country Vegas.

On this occasion I turned $100 in to $150, and while this isn't a huge win, it is a profit nevertheless. As such, I headed again to the cashier to make a withdrawal. At Vegas Country withdrawals sit in pending for 24 hours. After that however, the withdrawal is efficiently processed - and that's exactly what happened on this occasion. The only thing to note with Vegas Country banking is that withdrawals are not processed for less than $30. However, many people will cash in more than this amount so this really shouldn't be an issue.

When it comes to support at Vegas Country, this is provided around the clock every day of the week. What's more, speaking to a support representative is made very easy. Firstly, email support is available, as you would expect. However, the ease of support lies in the fact that 14 toll-free numbers are available covering many major countries. Even better, a call back facility is available, where a player simply needs to request a call and a support representative will call straight back - very impressive!

In conclusion, I have to say I was very happy I made the decision to check out this casino again. Obviously my original session was simply a time when luck was not with me - definitely not the case this time! Generally though, the casino has come a long way since I last played. An excellent selection of games is available, and the casino uses great graphics and sound effects to really increase the entertainment factor. What's more, the key functions of the casino work excellently - withdrawals are processed efficiently and the support options work very well. With a free sign-up bonus available, I definitely would recommend that players give Country Vegas Casino a whirl - maybe you'll have my luck too!
