Casino Classic is one of the online casino founding fathers, launching in 1999. The site is owned by Apollo Entertainment and is part of the Casino Rewards loyalty scheme, along with many other Apollo casinos.
- A wide range of games available, although not much variation
- 24/7 customer support
- Software download is required
- Welcome offer is overly complicated
The website manages to deliver a classic feel, the main colour is game table green, with the rest of the site kept simple with black and white. The navigation is straightforward, you can get quite a lot of information about the casino before downloading the software, but the software does have to be downloaded before you can view the games.
Bonuses and Promotions
The welcome offer is a rather complicated 5 stager, but you could get up to £500 in bonus money if you deposit the maximum at each stage, amounting to a deposit total of £1,000. The offer is broken down as follows: 100% bonus up to £100 on your first deposit; 50% bonus up to £100 on your second deposit; 25% bonus up to £100 on your third deposit; 50% bonus up to £100 on your fourth and, finally a 100% bonus up to £100 on your fifth deposit.
The minimum deposit is £20 and you have to make your first deposit within 7 days of registering to qualify for any of the bonuses. Wagering requirements are high for your first deposit bonus, at 60 times, however this is reduced down to 30 times for the 2nd through to 5th bonuses. As with most sites, different games contribute different amounts to the wagering requirements, so check this out in the terms before you play your bonus funds.
There aren’t any other promotions running on the site, but they are part of the Casino Rewards scheme, if you sign up to this you’ll earn loyalty points as you play.
Games on Offer
Casino Classic has over 500 games to choose from, all of which are powered by Microgaming and you have to download the software to be able to access them. This may be any issue for some of you, but if you take the leap and download the software, you won’t be sorry. All games are high quality and run really smoothly.
Slots are really well covered, once you’ve installed the software you’ll be greeted with hundreds to choose from, plus a good range of progressive jackpots.
Blackjack, video poker and roulette are also really well covered, if you’re happy to stick to these three games and a host of slots, you’ll be pretty pleased with Casino Classic.
That said, if you’re after live casino or a wider range of games, Casino Classic won’t be for you. This site is really one for those of you who know what you like and want a lot of it.
You can be confident that support will be available when you need it as customer services are available 24/7. You can get hold of them by live chat or email and, whilst there’s no phone number, you can request they call you back, free of charge, if you prefer. There’s a really good FAQ section on the website too, so you should be able to answer any small queries yourself.
Casino Classic doesn’t have an app, however log on to the main website and you’ll be able to install the mobile software and save a link to your home screen. The number of games is reduced on mobile, with 150 out of 500 available, but they all work really well with smooth game play.
Casino Classic is registered in Malta and fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, giving you all the protection that comes with it.
The site uses industry standard encryption, providing the same level of security you get from your online banking facilities, so your financial transactions will be secure.
Verdict / Summary
If you don’t mind downloading software, Casino Classic has a lot to offer, the game choice is vast, you’ll be pushed to find more video poker or blackjack tables elsewhere, and the Microgaming platform ensures all games are high quality and run well. That said, if you’re after live casino or more varied game choice, such as baccarat, craps or Pai Gow, you won’t find it at Casino Classic.
The welcome offer has been made overly complicated with high wagering requirements, it could cause some disappointment if you take it too seriously, so view it as some free play and see how you get on.
Customer services is great and, whilst you can’t phone them, it is 24/7 and they will phone you back if you ask them. There isn’t a mobile app, but you can download the software from the website to play on a mobile device, it runs really smoothly, but the game choice is reduced.
If you’re happy with the big three table games and slots, you will be really pleased with what Casino Classic has to offer. If you want live casino or more varied game choice, this one isn’t for you.
