EUROPAPLAY CASINO – by Mellinda de Bruyn
Europaplay Casino is a sister casino to Vegas Red and Europa Casinos. They also make use of the PlayTech Gaming software.
If you are looking for simplicity without compromising elegance, this casino is definitely the answer for you. The simple and elegant design of the casino’s web page, makes you feel at home and inquisitive to venture further into the casino lobby in search for what they have to offer.
South African players are not permitted to register an account with this casino any longer, unless a personal invitation has been sent from the casino management. Existing SA players can still continue to play in the casino. They do however not allow for the ZAR currency and SA players need to convert their money to other currencies. This makes playing in this casino expensive for SA players. Currencies that are supported include AUD, CAD, EUR, SEK, USD, RUB and ZAR. But it should be noted that all SA players who already have a registered account with the casino, can no longer use ZAR (even though it is advertised).
The casino is relatively new to the online gambling scene as they have been established in 2014. Due to them being backed by online gaming giants like Vegas Red and Europa casinos, they should not have any trouble in producing positive results. They hold a license issued by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) which is regarded as one of the best regulating authorities in the world. They promote safe gambling and assist gamblers that are experiencing addiction problems to overcome them.
They have over 500 games to choose from including slots, progressive games, table and card games, live dealer games, poker and scratch cards. The games are of high quality and graphics are good. Huge progressive jackpots increase the feeling of excitement and possibilities to win big.
Casino versions include browser, download, mobile and live dealer versions. It should however be noted that only the browser and download versions have all the available games. The mobile and live dealer versions only have some of the games available.
Promotions and bonuses available are a special welcome bonus which is paid out in two parts. A player receives a 100% match bonus up to R5000 on their first deposit and 50% refund up to R5000 on all deposits made on the day of the first deposit. Wagering requirements for bonuses are 30x the deposit and bonus received. Weekly loyalty bonuses are also offered and a VIP loyalty program that allows players to earn points that can be redeemed for cash. Faster withdrawal times for VIP players are one of the most lucrative advantages that the casino offers to their members.
They offer their members many different deposit and withdrawal options for each currency. There is a variety of credit and debit cards, web wallets and direct banking methods available for both deposits and withdrawals.
Customer support can be contacted via a toll free number, toll free fax number, email and live chat. They are available 24/7 to assist with any queries or concerns.
Personal view – I was invited by the management of Vegas Red to register an account with this casino. I have however not deposited in this casino as converting ZAR to other currencies makes it very expensive to play in this casino as a SA player. My dealings with the support staff has been good and they were very professional and friendly. As with all other PlayTech gaming software, it uses huge amounts of data to download the games in order to play. They offer the same games as Vegas Red and Europa, and since I can play in ZAR with these casinos, it is better for me to rather play there than at Europaplay Casino.
