When gamblers can’t get to the most exotic locations, online gambling brings those locations to the gambler’s home. Such is the case with River Nile Casino, where players don’t have to leave their house to be able to take a cruise along the Nile with the pharos. River Nile is an online casino that is powered by Microgaming, which means it gives players as many slot machines and games as they can possible need in stunning graphics and some of the most secure software around. The Flash version of the casino is Mac friendly, while the downloadable casino is free and easy to install.
The casino is not only a good playground for veteran gamblers but it is also a great place for newbies to get started. River Nile currently gives away a one hour free play promotion where new players receive $1,500 and 60 minutes to start exploring the casino. Players need to make a minimum of 20 bets during the first hour, and if they win any money above the initial $1,500, they must make a $40 deposit before they can withdraw their winnings. If they do claim any winnings in this promotion, players cannot also claim the deposit welcome bonus from the casino, but anyone who loses all their free play money or anyone who simply would rather join the casino using the deposit bonus is free to claim the matching bonus instead. This is a 200 percent bonus on all first-time deposits of $25, which gives gamblers an opening payroll of $75. Then, the casino gives these players 50 free spins on the slot machine Avalon.
River Nile Casino is also linked into the Casino Treasure Cruise contest sponsored by several casinos within the same family. Players are given a map and a set of criteria to meet. Anyone who meets all criteria and manages to travel to the end of their virtual map wins a destination trip on a real-live cruise ship. This is a Caribbean cruise open to all eligible players where gamblers from around the world meet up and share their secrets. There have been three cruises so far with another scheduled for 2013.
River Nile Casino boasts that it has 550 games to play, and while many of them are variations of the same type of game, like more than 30 variations of video poker and a dozen games of blackjack, there are some different and interesting options thrown into the mix. The casino has three card poker, Pai Gow, craps, baccarat, scratch cards, keno and Casino War just to name a few. There are hundreds of slot machines to latch onto, 17 of which come with progressive jackpots. Slot lovers can climb into the Wheel of Wealth, try their luck on Thunderstruck II or become a rock star on the Heavy Metal slots. All of these games are certified by eCogra to be safe and fair, meaning their random number generator is as close to what it would be if dealt in real life as is possible.
Banking at River Nile Casino is simple. There are 30 banking options available, depending on location, and each takes multiple currencies. The most popular currencies are yen, euros, pounds and dollars from the U.S., Australia and Canada. Players can choose from Poli, uKash, iDeal, InstaDebit, Skrill, EZI Pay, ClickandBuy, ECO Cards, NETeller and credit cards among others. Making withdrawals is a simple matter of providing the casino with some documented proof you are who you say you are, then choosing your withdrawal method.
In addition to the eCogra and other security measures within the software, the casino uses CashCheck and PlayCheck so players can keep up with their hand histories and follow exactly where their money goes while giving it to the casino and while it is circulating around the casino. If anyone has questions, the staff at the support desk is more than willing to provide help. They can be contacted 24/7 through the live chat box on the Web site, by telephone or through email, which is available in 14 languages.
