PartyGaming is licenced in Gibraltar, putting it within the UK’s whitelist of approved regulators. The whitelist is a list of gambling authorities that are deemed to have a similar level of standards as would be expected to be found in the UK. This adds to the comfort factor which already exists from the fact that PartyGaming is such a recognisable brand. Additional safety factors for a concerned player are that the PartyCasino uses 128-bit encryption to protect your information and that their games have been checked by an independent 3rd party to ensure that they are fair.

The current top promotion at PartyCasino is a welcome bonus of 100% up to $/£/€ 3,000 (spread out over your first four deposits – see terms & conditions on their website for more details). However, at PartyCasino, the bonuses don’t stop after you’ve signed up; there are also monthly player’s bonuses, which are tailored to your style of play, cash-back promotions and more.

Customer support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through free phone, Live Chat and E-mail. They even offer personal ‘hosts’ to regular players. There are various easy deposit options to choose from, and numerous withdrawal options, all of which are processed by their proprietary Pay-Pro cashier system.
