SEGA Online Casino
SEGA casino has closed…(we’ve kept the review up so you can see what it was like)
It is difficult not to get excited when a leading name in the gaming industry, launches an online casino. So, excited I was, when I learnt that the very same company which brought us “Sonic the Hedgehog” and some of the first ever slot machines, ventured into the online casino industry in October 2009.
The website itself looks great, is well appointed and has all the information you need available with one click. The software is supplied by the industry leading, Playtech, and as you would expect performs fantastically well. Downloading the software was quick and painless although registration was a bit of a chore. The website seemed to be having ‘one of those days’, as at first I kept getting a “server temporarily unavailable” message, however, after a few attempts I was in, and in a couple of minutes registered and ready to play!
Segacasino.com has a commitment to providing the latest cutting-edge games and a quick look at those available will reassure you of their fulfilment of this promise. Segacasino.com provides all the casino games you would expect, plus ‘LIVE games’ in Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. The slots at segacasino.com are outstanding, particularly those that Sega have put their own indelible stamp on, you will find these under the ‘Sega Games’ tab.
Current promotions include; a 200% welcome bonus, 50% second deposit bonus, a high-roller bonus, a 200% SEGAPass bonus and, a 10% Moneybookers/Neteller deposit bonus.
For the convenience of its customers, segacasino.com provides a “proprietary single wallet platform”, this means that you can use the same log-in and account details on all of the Sega gaming sites. In addition Sega have created the segabuddy.com website where you can create your own profile, invite friends to play and collect ‘Gold Rings’ in order to win prizes. A quick look on the forum of this website shows it hasn’t exactly taken off, with very few posts having been made, however, this is a new idea and it may simply need just a little more time to catch on.
To check out the customer support, I used the instant chat facility and was very impressed when they answered my general queries straight away. Deposits at the moment are only able to be made via Neteller or Moneybookers, however, this does mean that withdrawals only take 24 hours. Any deposits can be made in Euros or Pounds Sterling.
