Casino Classic Review

From the moment you clap eyes on it, you just know that Casino Classic is going to be awful, and yet there’s something strangely magnetic about this car crash of a site.

Is it the flashing red bulbs in the animated banner or the flashing red notice urging you to Download Now? Or is it the scrolling ticker proclaiming how ‘high profile news sites’ such as Dow Jones Market Watch and Yahoo! Finance have featured the site – presumably in the early aughts when it might have actually been a going concern?

Today, you can still play at the site – provided you own a PC, not a Mac. Got a mobile or tablet? Don’t even waste your breath. Casino Classic is strictly for the old school. The site bills itself as ‘the internet’s best online casino’ but – spoiler alert – it isn’t.

The Best on Offer….Really?

The site purports to be one of the flagship casinos of Casino Rewards. If this is the best they’ve got to offer, you really don’t want to see their worst.

In fairness, there was once a time when there was nothing wrong with sites of this nature. It’s just that a lot has happened in ten years on the web, and Casino Classic has been left behind.

The site was established 11 years ago apparently and promises over 500 casino games including 16 progressive slots in a trusted and secure environment. The site is managed by Apollo Entertainment Limited, a company who are registered in Malta and licensed in the UK by the UK Gambling Commission.

What’s in Store at Casino Classic?

Casino Classic might be old as hell, but if you can scroll past the epilepsy-inducing banners and flashing pop-ups, there’s still some solid gaming to be had. What’s more, for all its sins, at least Casino Classic is secure. The site operates with 128-bit encryption, the industry standard, allowing you to play in confidence.

Moreover, if you don’t mind having to download Casino Classic’s proprietary software to play, you can access some top games from major developers such as Microgaming. From Hellboy to Tomb Raider, there are some epic branded slots to get your teeth into here, along with all manner of roulette, blackjack and poker games.

Getting Started

After creating an account with Casino Classic and installing their software on your PC, the next step is to deposit some funds. This can be done via a range of popular payment mechanisms. The site accepts credit and debit cards, e-wallets, prepaid vouchers and bank transfer. PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard are all available.

When it comes to withdrawing funds, there’s a minimum amount of £50, or £300 for wire and courier check. There’s also a two-day processing period before your funds will be released.

Bonus Time

For all of Casino Classic’s failings, the bonuses to be claimed for signing up are as good as those to be found at many other online casinos. In total, there’s £500 to be claimed, starting with a 100% first deposit match of up to £100. For the second deposit, it’s a 50% match, a 25% match for the third, a 50% match for the fourth and a 100% match for the fifth. The minimum deposit amount is £20.

Once you’ve claimed your bonus, you’ll be ready to start getting in about the progressive jackpot games, whose collective pot stands at over £12 million.

All the Games

As with all casinos that are reliant exclusively on downloadable software, Casino Classic provides only a preview in its games section. To truly discover whether its games pass muster, you’ll need to install the software on your PC or laptop.

Demo play isn’t a concept in Casino Classic’s games lobby. Instead, all you get is a list of available games along with their RTP, most of which are in the high 90s. There’s also a brief summary of what each type of game does. Odds are you don’t require a two-sentence overview of blackjack or poker, but hey, it’s there if you want it.

Table Games

Looking at a long list of games is hardly the most inspiring advertisement for an online casino, but it does reveal the sheer number of titles available at Casino Classic.

If blackjack is your game, take your pick from dozens of games such as Atlantic City Blackjack, Classic Blackjack Gold, Multi-Hand Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold, Spanish Blackjack and Pontoon Gold. If roulette’s more your thing, there’s a similar breadth of choice.

Casino Classic promises games that mimic the fun of playing at a real casino but with a better RTP. Titles include Roulette Royale, French Roulette and American Roulette.

Range of Video Poker

Most old school casinos have a preponderance of versions of video poker, and Casino Classic is no exception. The site is stocked with every possible permutation of poker, with various bonus features and multi-hand varieties to keep things fresh.

Graphically, these games are pretty basic, but provided that doesn’t bother you, there’s plenty of fun to be had getting stuck into All American Poker, Cyberstud Poker, Deuces & Joker, Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better.

Shouting About Its Slots

Casino Classic is proud of its video slots, claiming them to be the feature the site is most famous for. Like all claims Casino Classic make, this one should be treated with a healthy dose of scepticism.

To their credit, the number and nature of the games is impressive, even if the graphics and gameplay is in many cases nothing to shout about. The RTP for the various slots is usually around the 96% mark.

There’s no means of sorting through the slots other than alphabetically. Have a good browse and see whether any of the following will be to your liking: Dr Watts Up, Dragon Lady, Fairy Ring, Gift Rap, Happy New Year, Karate Pig and My Slot. If you do go to the trouble of installing Casino Classic’s software, you’ll certainly have no shortage of games to keep you entertained.

The progressive games to be played at Casino Classic, most of which are slots, have their own section, with their corresponding jackpots displayed underneath. Top of the heap is Mega Moolah, the yardstick by which all other progressive games are measured, with a jackpot of over £9,000,000. Other progressive games to be found at Casino Classic include Fruit Fiesta, Jackpot Deuces, Progressive Cyberstud, Tunzamunni and Lotsaloot.

Other Games

Casino Classic’s other games section includes a number of table games plus a few titles that are less common within a bricks and mortar casino, but familiar faces in a virtual setting. The table games include Baccarat and Baccarat Gold plus the likes of Bonus Pai Gow Poker.

There are also two bingo titles – Ballistic Bingo and Bingo Bango Boom! – as well as Keno and Red Dog.

If you like your wins instant, the scratch games will give you the dopamine rush and the riches you crave. Finally, there are titles such as Sic Bo, Vegas Craps, Vegas 3 Card Rummy Gold and Red Dog to have a stab at.
