Playmillion Casino Review

playmillion casinoPlaymillion is a very professional online casino with many exciting games, a top-notch software and no-download-option. Many lucrative bonuses and promotions, such as the welcome bonus of 150% up to €600, make this casino an excellent choice.

Games offered

There are many different games you can play in the Playmillion casino. First, there are more than 70 online slots. You can play the traditional 3-reel and 5-reel slots, many of which revolve around popular icons (Captain America, Batman, Spider-Man). Some of the slots also have a progressive jackpot. The highlights in the slot section are probably the five 3D slots (Ghost Pirates) that bring online gambling to a new level.

Playmillion also offers card and table games. One positive aspect is the great variety of Roulette games (11 different ones, including Live Roulette). There are also several Blackjack variants (including European Blackjack, Progressive Blackjack), a few card games (such as Pai Gow), as well as Craps and Baccarat.

You can also play up 15 Video Poker games, several scratch games, and also two “extra games” (Big Wheel, Doubles Heaven). Finally, Playmillion also has real dealers in their Live Casino section for Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat, including Auto Roulette.

Enrollment

To register, you only need to enter a username, an email address, and a password. If you chose the instant play option, you will then immediately be redirected to the casino lobby and can start playing.

User experience

The website is very user-friendly. The available games are not just listed, as is the case with many casino websites, but categorized. For instance, instead of just seeing a huge list of online slots, you can select the category you’re looking for: 3D slots, Jackpot slots, 3 reels, 5 reels, and new additions.

There are two ways of playing in the Playmillion Casino: you can either download the software (for Windows only) or play in your browser. There is also a practice mode, in which you can play the games on Playmillion for free; you need to have a registered account for this.

Bonuses and promotions

Playmillion presents a welcome package to all new players: five successive deposit bonuses of 150% up to €600. In order to release the bonus amount, you need to bet the sum of deposit amount and bonus amount 30 times. Not all bets count fully toward the bonus requirement, however. For instance, only 10% of the amount you bet on Blackjack and Roulette count toward the bonus requirement.

Moreover, players can also get a reload bonus of 100% up to €100 or 50% of up to €500. There are also different tournaments, such as the weekly €1,500 Weekend Race both for slots and other games.

Banking

Playmillion accepts a wide range of payment methods, from MasterCard and VISA to debit cards, to bank transfer, prepaid cards (Paysafecard, Ukash) to various e-wallets (Skrill, PayPal, Click and Buy).

Customer support

Playmillion’s customer support is available 24/7. First, the online casino has an email support and you can contact the respective department (marketing, bonus, technical issues) directly. There is also a phone support.

Then there is also a live support option, though it is a bit complicated, as you need to enter your username, phone number and pick a category and submit your question before actually getting to the chat. However, in a test as an unregistered user, the support answered our question regarding the difference between two similar games (Live Roulette and Auto Roulette), even though it took a few minutes.

Conclusion

Playmillion offers a broad range of games, including Roulette, Baccarat, Video Poker and online slots (even though there are casinos that have more slots). There is a no-download-version of the casino that works without flaws and lags. Furthermore, Playmillion keeps it interesting with ongoing promotions, such as weekly tournaments, and lots of opportunities for reload bonuses.

Europa Casino Review

The Europa casino is a good online casino without substantial flaws. The amount and variety of games offered is great, the web interface is clean and easy to navigate, and new trends in the gambling industry, such as the live dealers or animated slots, have also been implemented.

Games offered

The highlight of the Europa casino definitely lies in its game selection. There are almost 100 hundred online slots; they vary from movie/TV-themed slots (Gladiator, The Sopranos) to sport-themed slots (Football Fans, Golden Tour). And of course, there are the classic fruit and candy slots as well. Many slots can also be played in a progressive jackpot mode.

If you prefer table games, you will enjoy the six different kinds of Blackjack offered here, including a multiplayer version. Similarly, the Europa Casino provides nine Roulette versions, including the new “Marvel Roulette”, a combination of roulette and famous comic icons such as Spiderman.

Moreover, the Europa Casinos offers 14 video poker games, almost 20 arcade games (such as Jackpot Darts and Medusa’s Gaze), a couple of card games (such as Pontoon) and several scratch games.

You can also play online craps and online baccarat. The latter also has a Live option: baccarat, roulette, and blackjack are all available in the Live Casino with live dealers in real-time.

Enrollment

To register, you need to enter your personal details and pick a username and password. Then you need to click on an activation link sent to you by email.

User experience

The download version of the Europa Casino only works on Windows computers. You can also use the “instant web play” mode and play straight from your browser. Furthermore, there is a mobile version for smartphones.

You can use the free play (or “practice”) option in the no download casino, but unfortunately not all games can be played for play money without a registered account. If you register and play in the Europa casino via your browser, a pop-up appears and the game starts after a few seconds.

Bonuses and promotions

There is a welcome bonus if you’re a new player in the Europa Casino: if you deposit 100 €, you will get a 100% welcome bonus; you need to wager the bonus amount and the deposit amount 20 times. For highrollers, there is a 50% bonus of up to 500 €. Moreover, you can get a bonus of 10% if you deposit money using one of the e-wallet options, such as Skrill.

The Europa Casino offers most of the common deposit options, such as various credit cards and e-wallets (Neteller, Skrill) and anonymous payment methods (Paysafecard, Ukash). You can also deposit money via (instant) bank transfer. If you want to play and deposit your mobile phone, only credit card, UKash and Neteller are available.

Customer support

The customer service is available around the clock. You can call support by phone, write an e-mail or use the live chat option.

Conclusion

The Europa casino’s strength is the great variety of casino games: you can choose one of almost a hundred online slots, you can play traditional games in many variations (roulette, blackjack), and you can play more exotic games. Another advantage is that there are different versions of the software: you can download it, play via browser or use your mobile phone.
