Rushmore online casino was launched in 2007, but has built up a pretty good reputation as one of the few RTG casinos that pays promptly although players are restricted to a maximum of $2,000 cashouts per week it should be noted. They have a great range of slots and table games as you’d expect, and a big signup bonus, although with wagering requirements as at every casino. Rushmore also takes players from the USA, and is one of the most successful at handling deposits and cashouts in North America – a problem now faced by many US players. It is also one of the few RTG casinos accredited by the prestigious online casino watchdog, Casinomeister.
Rushmore Casino is one of the more popular casinos powered by RTG (Realtime Gaming) software – featuring many of RTG’s latest slots including Crazy Vegas and Warlock’s Spell, as well as popular progressive jackpots like Good to be Bad and Card Shark, Rushmore Casino is full of casino games and slots that are sure to take your fancy.
One of the more interesting slots at Rushmore is Pinocchio – where Pinocchio himself is not only wild, he expands to cover all 3 positions on any reel which he appears on – while the appearance of the Fairy Godmother on three or more reels triggers a round of free spins. During my play, Pinocchio and the Fairy Godmother appeared quite often, making for a very lively session. The only complaint I have about the Pinocchio slots are that the reels are smaller than most of their other slots games – while I understand the designer’s idea of enhancing the theme, as a player I generally prefer the large reels which are easy to see.
Along with a wide selection of slot machines, Rushmore Casino has the entire range of RTG video poker machines and table games – while these days I tend to play a lot less blackjack or Let Em Ride, for example, I still gravitate towards the video pokers when I get bored of playing slots.
So off I go to try a video poker I’ve never seen before – Mystery Bonus Poker. After playing it for a while, I was still confused as to what exactly the Mystery Bonus was about – a hand will wave over a magician’s hat and “pull out” a hand – most of which were straights and royal flushes when I played, and of course I could never hit one – even playing 100 hands at a time. But finally I got a 3 of a Kind and a Straight when those bonus hands were chosen – and after counting the total payout, I finally figured it out – if you hit a Bonus hand, you get an extra 5 coins. Based on a 8-5 paytable, I will probably avoid this machine in the future – my favorite is still Double Double Bonus Poker, or any type of Bonus Poker, for that matter.
Rushmore, like other RTG-powered casinos, relies on what is essentially a web page for their lobby. The design is quite modern and clean, but loads a bit slow so be prepared to wait a bit each time you enter the casino, or exit a game. If you’re lucky and come away with some winnings, Rushmore will send you a payment by check or wire transfer at your discretion. They have 24/7 phone support with dedicated toll-free phone numbers in the US and UK, and if you’re invited into their VIP Club, you’ll even have a dedicated casino manager at your service 24/7.
If you’re looking for a neat casino with a good reputation, Rushmore Casino should definitely be on your shortlist of RTG-powered casinos.
