Distinguished by its membership of the Fortune Lounge Group, Platinum Play Casino is a solid, secure place for online gambling, being covered by the security peace of mind of both eCOGRA and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.
Presented in a subtle, smooth and modern way, this simple site is very usable and versatile coming in translations of several different languages.
The casino comes in both download and instant play (flash) versions. The latter has less functionality and fewer games than the full download version of the casino, which comes with stunning graphics, digital audio and fast, trouble free game play. Downloading and installing the software is a simple process and is completed in less than half an hour.
Once you have installed the software, the casino starts up quickly and you can then enter the lobby where you can sign up and choose either to play for real money or for fun money. Using fun money is an excellent way for new Platinum Play players to get to know the many games and learn how to play them to a high standard before then committing to using their own money. It is always better to make your mistakes early on when you’re not risking your own money!
Once you decide to start playing with real money, there is a fantastic sign up bonus on offer which can see your account boosted to $400 in two simple steps. You get a first deposit cash match of 150% up to $150. Then there is a second deposit match of 100% up to $250. This is a really great way to get started by playing with a decent initial bankroll.
The software is provided by Viper and Microgaming, which makes up the backbone of this casino while there is an amazing range of over one hundred and sixty games to choose from. Online blackjack, online slots, online craps, online Sic Bo, online Let it Ride, online Baccarat and online video poker are all available on this site. With fifteen blackjack choices, over thirty online video games and over eighty online slots, online progressive and non-progressive jackpots and new games added monthly, there are some very realistic and interesting options for online gamblers to try their hand.
Reward points can be used to collect money and get prizes and can be used across the Fortune Lounge Group. Gamers also get to indicate which charity gets their vote for the donations the casino makes.
Making deposits and withdrawing cash to and from your account is a fairly straight forward process. Deposits can be made with both Visa and MasterCard credit cards, Solo and Maestro debit cards or one of the many online payment methods including ECO Card, Click2Pay, Entropay, ClickandBuy, Ukash, eZpay, eCheck, InstandDebit, UseMyBank, Moneybookers, Neteller, UseMyWallet or Direct Bank Transfer. To make things simple, each payment method comes with a full page of detailed instructions on how to use them.
For withdrawing, similarly detailed instructions are provided for using the aforementioned payment methods to transfer funds from your player account. In addition, there is a full transaction history checking system for both financial transactions via CashCheck and also all playing activities via PlayCheck.
There is also a huge advantage to playing a casino that is part of the Fortune Lounge Group. When you play the Platinum Play Casino, you are able to use the same monetary deposit to take part in any of their affiliate casinos. This represents a considerable saving in not having to make deposits in their other online casino sites.
Everyone loves a winner and all the big weekly winners are published at the Platinum Play. The most recent big winner from the Fortune Lounge group of casinos scooped $946,886 in February this year. There are several winners taking away five figure amounts every week and $92,900 was won by a lucky player just last week!
Security is handled by 128 bit SSL encryption on every financial transaction, ensuring the same level of security as provided by online banks.
Customer support is also excellent with 24/7 cover via a large selection of toll free telephone numbers covering many countries. There is also email and live chat, the latter being very useful if you don’t have access to the free phone number, although it annoyingly resizes your browser window to access it.
