Review of the iOS Royal Vegas casino application
- Sign-up bonus: Royal Vegas offers new players up to $1200 when they sign-up, including a first deposit ‘matched-bet’ up to $250.
- Games: A constantly growing list of pokies (including progressive jackpot slots), video poker, blackjack, roulette and more. This app will continue to release new games on a monthly basis and has no fewer than 100 distinct titles.
Royal Vegas Casino’s iOS app offers Apple users a genuine and efficient method to play real money interactive gaming titles. More titles are constantly being added to the catalogue of games.
NB: The Royal Vegas iOS app is marketed in the Apple App Store as the ‘Regal Vegas Casino’ for branding purposes. This IS the correct app to install. Once downloaded, you have the option to play within the practice play ‘Regal Vegas’ interface or the real money ‘Royal Vegas’ interface. Each time we open the app, we can choose which style of play we prefer, giving us the flexibility to trial games before playing with genuine cash.
Games on Offer in the Royal Vegas iOS Application
The Royal Vegas Casino app has a list of titles which is constantly growing, so to give an exact number would be outdated. As mentioned above, it has no fewer than 100 games, including dedicated Gold European roulette and European blackjack, a variety of the most popular interactive pokies, along with a great collection of video poker.
NB: Real money play hosts all titles, while the practice version has slightly less games, but still more than s sufficient amount for us to trial.
The pokies: The RV app caters particularly well for slots players with fan favourites such as Isis, Agent Jane Blonde, Tomb Raider and Thunderstruck II having been converted to the RV app. Like all the games the slots are played in landscape mode. If you swipe to the left you can choose your bet amount, while if you swipe to the right you get in depth rules for the game you are playing.
Progressive slots: Several extremely popular progressive jackpot games like Major Millions, Mega Moolah and Treasure Nile. Because these games are MicroGaming titles you are playing for the same Jackpots as gamers who are playing on PC or web-based mobile website, meaning there is more money in the prize pool.
Roulette: The only Roulette game available on the IOS app is European Gold Roulette, which as the name suggests is part of MicroGaming’s ‘Gold’ signature series. The layout is simple, you are confronted with the table to place your bets when the game first loads. You can then flick to the left to choose bet size and for other options. Once you have made a decision on your bets you hit spin and the screen changes to the roulette wheel where you fate is determined. The minimum bet for European Roulette Gold is $5 while the maximum is $40.
Blackjack: European Gold Blackjack follows the same rules as a bricks and mortar casino. The game play is fast and easy. You choose your bet amount and once you have done that you hit deal and you are dealt you cards. The minimum bet is $1 while the maximum is $20.
Video Poker: Is similar to five card draw poker. You are dealt five cards face up and you choose which to keep and which to discard. You base these decisions on what hand you are chasing. To choose how many coins you want to gamble you flick to the left, while detailed instructions on how to play are found by flicking to the right. The minimum bet per hand is 25 cents, while the maximum is $10.
Royal Vegas Welcome Bonus
Royal Vegas Casino offers a sign-up bonus of up to $1200 which you can still claim if you are an IOS user. The promotion works over your first three deposits:
First deposit: RV will match any deposit, up to $250.
Second deposit: Receive a 25 per cent bonus, up to $250.
Third deposit: A 50 per cent bonus will be applied to any deposit. The bonus is capped at $750.
NB: There are play-through requirements for bonuses; this means there are restrictions on withdrawing your free money (also known as wagering requirements). Generally you need to bet the money a certain amount of times before you can withdraw it.
From the moment you sign-up to play for real money at Royal Vegas Casino you are included in their Loyalty Rewards Program, even if you’re playing on your IOS device. The rewards program works by giving you points each time you gamble at Royal Vegas Casino. The more you play at the online gambling den the more points you will earn. You can then trade the loyalty points in for real money.
When you play slots on your IOS device you receive one loyalty points for every credit you spend. Roulette will give you one point for every 10 credits gambled while Video Poker and Blackjack will give you on point for every 20 credits spent.
When you have accumulated 5,000 rewards points, you can convert these points to real money. For every 1,000 rewards points you receive $1.
The amount of points that earn each month determine your level of rewards membership. As you progress through the five different levels of membership the more benefits you will receive. For instance a platinum member will earn points at a 15 per cent faster rate than the base membership – silver.
NB: If you don’t earn enough points to maintain your current level of membership you will drop down a level. Points are only valid for 60 days if they are not redeemed. Real money that has been converted from loyalty points is not subject to play-through requirements.
