InterCasino

No players accepted from: USA

This Wagerlogic-powered Casino has been operating since 1996 making it one of the oldest online casinos still operating. Indeed, during the early 2000’s InterCasino was voted ‘Best Online Casino’ by readers of a popular online gaming magazine. Recently, this popular casino has been given a brand makeover and although InterCasino doesn’t accept US players, this casino continues to be a favourite amongst other players across the world, particularly those from Europe.

Software and Games:

InterCasino operates a download and no-download casino with both versions using the Wagerlogic / Cryptologic gaming suite. These are playable in one of three currencies – US dollar, Euro and UK Pound with players selecting their currency preference at installation / account creation time. The best gaming experience is achieved via the download casino although the browser version is great for those on slower connections or where downloading and installation of software isn’t possible.

The new InterCasino brand of lime green on black is seen throughout the casino and the lobby looks pretty classy as a result. The game selection menu is simple to use and players are able to visit the cashier, read the casino tutorial and configure the casino all from the one interface.

Games are plentiful and cover the usual mix of slots, video poker and table games. One thing to note is that InterCasino has relatively high minimum bets – although some 1 credit Blackjack tables are available, many games have 5 or even 10 credit limits and games such as Single Handle Blackjack require at least 25 credits to be bet per hand. The big gamblers out there though will like these limits and the top level tables allow bets of 5000 credits per spot to be placed! Slots can be played from $0.01 per line and high rollers can bet up to £50 per spin.

Game Presentation:

As with most casino software providers, Wagerlogic continues to create new games thus the software suite provided by InterCasino contains some old favourites along with some cutting edge new offerings. There isn’t exactly a common game interface between games (due to the fact games have been introduced at different times) but each game is easy to understand in terms of controls. The graphics in general are of a good quality although they are not as sharp as I’ve seen at some other casinos. To make up for it though the in-game voice overs are very good and rather than a set ‘you win’ or ‘you lose’ sound effect, InterCasino has a bank of phrases which are used at random during game play. For example, you win once and might here “good hand”, another time it’s “player wins!”

One of the big draws with InterCasino is the use of licensed material to enhance the game selection. For example, a deal with Marvel means players can find the Hulk, the Green Lantern and Batman amongst other characters in the various slot games available. This is definitely a big plus and sets the slot games in particular apart from the nondescript offerings found elsewhere.

Jackpot fans will also like the progressive games where the prize pots continually rise until someone wins – at the time of writing the Millionaire games had jackpots standing at over 1.2m.

Cash, Deposits and Withdrawals:

All cash handling at InterCasino is managed by eCash Direct. Cash accounts are created at the time of player registration and the cashier allows purchases and withdrawals to be managed by the user. Deposits can be via credit / debit card, eWallet, bank wire and cheque. Deposit minimums are a low 10 credits which will appeal to those on a budget. Withdrawing funds is equally simple with InterCasino having no pending period on withdrawals and eCash Direct processing pay out requests every couple of hours. Players will on occasion be requested to send in ID but generally InterCasino is a place where there’s no messing around when it comes to money. This is definitely a big plus in our book.

Bonuses and Terms and Conditions:

InterCasino offers a decent sign-up bonus allowing players to cash in on a 100% match up to 250 credits. A respectable 12x deposit and bonus wagering condition is applied and players can monitor their bonus play in the eCash cashier. The only thing to note is that not all games contribute the full bet amount towards wagering conditions (slots are generally 100%, table games 40% and Video Poker / Blackjack / Roulette roughly 10%).

Players are offered a match bonus every month and an on-going comps scheme (which actually converts to cash at a very decent rate) allows players to get more play for their deposit at pretty regular intervals.

Customer Support:

Toll-free telephone support and email are the two ways to contact the customer support team. One of the things InterCasino has learnt over the years is how to run a casino so when it comes to solving problems and assisting with queries, InterCasino is right on the money.

Other Comments and Summary:

InterCasino has been around for a long time now and this is a testament to the fact this casino generally does things right. A good bonus scheme both attracts new players and keeps old players loyal. Similarly, the game selection should meet most peoples requirements and the licensed-name slots in-particuarlly offer sometying new and fresh. Cash handling is superb and the near-instant withdrawals are a big plus with players. Customer support offering is another plus point when weighing up what this casino has to offer. Of course, for many people staying with a casino depends on how good their luck is but for those that want a fair game and importantly want no hassles if they win, InterCasino certainly comes high on our list.
