It’s yet another project from the renowned company who seem to have their fingers in so many pies. Whether it’s trains, aeroplanes or online casinos, Virgin seem to be continually coming up with the goods.
You’ll find a whole host of games from top software designers with some great games from Gamesys, NetEnt, IGT (Wager Works), WMS (Williams Interactive), High5Games and Hasbro. With that impressive list you just know you’re onto a winner with the Virgin Games site. Also look out for the excellent Live Casino that even includes slow motion coverage.
Welcome Offer – 200% up to £200 Bonus
Thankfully it’s not going to take you too long to complete your registration to this site. Always a welcome fact that one and after sorting out a username, it’s time to start playing on the site which is after all the reason you’ve joined up.
The moment you make your first deposit that sets you up for the welcome offer available at Virgin Games. Simply deposit at least £10 to receive a 200% bonus, so a £40 deposit sees you receiving a £80 bonus. The largest bonus available is £200 for a £100 or more deposit.
The wagering requirement attached to the bonus is 4x in 30 days. That may look small but each game has a different contribution towards fulfilling the wagering requirement. Slot games and poker buy-ins just 10%, instant games 5%, 3D roulette 2.5% and nothing for baccarat, blackjack, craps and Video Poker.
In fact it is only bingo games that have a true 4x rollover, most slots in reality carry a 40x rollover – which is comparable with other online casino site introductory offers.
Keep an eye on the site to see if anything changes re this bonus. Check the ‘My Account’ section for an example and how you are getting on.
Virgin Games Regular Promotions
Virgin Games seem to be a big fan of the cashback offer. Now this is one of those offers that are welcome but not one you’d bend over backwards to get. To get cashback you have to be losing in the first place and that’s not really your main desire in life is it? Well at least you know there’s some cashback to soften any blow you do suffer.
At Virgin Games you can actually choose when you want to receive them. You can decide on any two hours of 10% cashback on losses on any day you like every single week. All you have to do is wager £30 on slot games or in the Live Casino.
The maximum amount you can earn is £20. Keep an eye out for other cashback offers on poker and slot games that occasionally crop up on the site. These simply require you to wager a certain amount (for example £10 on poker) to qualify for a 10% cashback).
Daily Free Games
It’s always good to have something to look forward to every day and that’s the case at Virgin Games with their Daily Free Games. All you have to do is deposit at least £10 and that gets you into the ‘Search for the Phoenix’ game.
This is a tile board that has lots of hidden prizes to be won. They can be either cash amounts that can be as high as £100 or between five and 50 spins. Each game last seven days starting at 00.01 on Monday and ending on Sunday at 23.59.
Select a mosaic tile (you can choose up to six a day) to reveal a symbol and if during the week you can match a certain number of symbols then you’re a winner. For example, get seven Griffins to win £10 or five Ruby pendants to win 50 free spins on the ‘Secrets of the Phoenix’ game). Avoid the skull symbols at all costs though because you don’t get anything for those.
There’s also a calendar based game with more cash and free spins to be won. Each day you play the Daily game you’re given a Phoenix egg, not for breakfast or dinner but as a way to be a winner. This is given to you after you’ve made your six selections in the main game and on the last day of the game the Phoenix Flame chooses some days on your calendar to be “lucky days.” They then catch fire on those “lucky days” and reveal a prize.
Other regular promotions include receiving a £20 bonus when you refer a friend. You receive that when they deposit £10 and wager £40 or more and satisfy their wagering requirements.
Take on the Poker Hosts to be given a ticket into the weekly Community tournament on a Tuesday evening that has a maximum £500 prize pool (minimum £50).
V-Points Loyalty Scheme
The more you play at Virgin Games the more V-Points you’ll earn. You get one for every £20 spent on slots of casino. These can be redeemed for either cash or Flying Club miles which is a little bit different but understandable considering it’s Virgin and they run an airline.
Each V-Point is worth £0.01 and the minimum you can redeem is 20 points (£0.20) or one mile if you’re after air miles with the minimum you can convert being just one point though doing that and just getting one mile of travel literally isn’t going to get you very far! Which offer you take up is entirely down to you.
Software & Platform
Virgin Games uses a number of software providers. These are: Gamesys, NetEnt, IGT (WagerWorks), WMS (Williams Interactive), High5Games and Hasbro.
That means you’re bound to find some of your favourite games on the site and more than likely find some new favourites too whether it’s slot games, casino games or those that provide you with an instant win if your luck is really in.
The site doesn’t split the games into sections for individual software designers but it won’t take you long to find your much loved games. There are over 70 slot games to choose from, over 20 casino games and just the five in the live casino, plenty to keep you happy though.
You don’t need to download the site which is handy as it won’t mean taking up space on your PC/tablet. If you are going to be using this site you do need to have Flash and this may have to be updated from time to time, there are useful links on the site.
It doesn’t matter what your favourite kind of game is, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied at Virgin Games. Just which game to play first is going to give you the largest headache.
As well as the more established games there will be some that you may not be at all familiar with. The demo versions of the games are ideal to play in this case. No use going around wasting money learning how to play an unfamiliar game is there?
Each game has a bit of text telling you about them and special features (i.e. how many lines the slot game has) and the option to play that demo version and start finding out just how they run.
The casino games available are all listed on the same page so that’s handy. Whether it’s roulette, blackjack, poker or baccarat you’re looking to play you’ll find something to your liking. Not just the classic versions though but those with a bit of a twist to them. Also check out the Hi-Lo games, Pai-Gow, Craps and Jacks or Better. Lots of choice here which is good to see.
If it’s playing in Live Casino’s that you like, then you’re well catered for at Virgin Games. There’s live roulette, poker, baccarat and blackjack. It’s not quite like playing down your local casino, in fact it can be even better. Do you get multiple camera angles, 200 frames-per-second HD video and slow motion replays at your favourite casino? You do at Virgin Games!
Those of you chasing big jackpots won’t be disappointed either. It’d be good to see a page dedicated to the jackpot games though rather than having to search for them. There are plenty of games where you can win some big jackpots with games such as ‘Wonderland’ having a tasty progressive jackpot.
Desktop & Mobile Site
Everything is so well presented here which is always really helpful. There’s no danger of a cluttered look at all. Navigation isn’t going to cause any major headaches.
The only slight minus is the lack of an A to Z of games. It won’t take you long to scroll down and find the game you want to play. Each game has some information about it and then you can click on it to get more and then either play a demo version or for real.
There’s so much to do at this site you’ll be wanting to play it all the time. That means you simply have to get hold of the mobile app. This can be use on your Android and iOS and to obtain it you just need to go to the Android and App store.
The mobile version of the site has the same promotions as the main site and the games can be faster too which is a great bonus. There’s not that many games on the app though with just over 20 at the last count, the vast majority being slot games.
There are a number of different methods that can be used to make your deposits and withdrawals at Virgin Games.
These are: Maestro, MasterCard, PayPal, Paysafe Card, Visa Delta, Visa Electron, Visa and Skrill.
The minimum deposit you can make is just £10 and the minimum withdrawal is £10 and the maximum depends on the method used. For example with a Visa Card or Neteller it’s £10,000 and with PayPal it’s £5,500.
Full details are on the site where there’s a whole page dedicated to the banking on the site. The good news is that everything is totally secure so no worries of any cash going missing.
How long withdrawals take to get back to your account depends on the method used. It’s one to five working days with Visa and MasterCard credit cards and almost instantly with PayPal, Neteller, Moneybookers or a Paysafe card
About Virgin Games Casino
It was in late 2003 that Virgin decided to expand into yet another area of business. After record shops, trains and planes, the company wholly owned by Sir Richard Branson decided it was time to launch Virgin Bingo and Virgin Casino. It proved to be a big success and Virgin Games have been awarded the GamCare Certification for Remote Gambling.
Three years ago game development company Gamesys acquired Virgin Games for an undisclosed sum. They also signed a “long-term deal” to develop real money and social gambling sites for the Virgin brand.
New owners Gamesys have a solid reputation for being excellent game designers. They also launched the ‘Bingo Friendzy’ Facebook app, the first on the Social Network’s App Center. They also operate a number of other sites such as Jackpotjoy.com and Caesar’s Casino.
