A relatively new online casino, 24VIP Casino claims to be one of the hottest online casinos. It likewise claims to have “some of the highest payout rates online.” It was established by a group of casino industry veterans who were once part of a gambling site that has been in existence since 2006.
This online casino offers a good collection of games including slots, video poker, and various table games. It also features numerous bonuses and promotions, along with a VIP club or loyalty program. To serve players in different parts of the world, this casino supports multiple currencies and payment systems including bitcoin. Of note, 24VIP Casino accepts players from the United States and United Kingdom. It’s advisable to ascertain, however, if there are indeed no laws or regulations in your country or jurisdiction that prohibits online gambling. 24VIP does not guarantee that the site is legal in all of the areas not included in its list of restricted countries.
24VIP Casino offers two options for playing: through a client software or instantly (browser-based or web-based). For the uninitiated, client software playing means you will have to download and install a game client software on your desktop before you can play. You will then sign up for an account, log in, and play through this client software. The other option lets you sign up for an account on the 24VIP Casino website (with your web browser), log in, and play.
This review focuses on the web-based playing option.
When you click on the Sign Up button to register for an account, a modal window is displayed asking you if you want to “Play for Real” or “Play for Fun.” Obviously, you have to choose the former to be able to place real money bets and win real money prizes.
The account registration process involves a number of steps. First, you will be asked to enter your email address and your preferred username and password. Next, you will have to fill out a form asking for your name, birth date, and home phone number. The third form requires your address (including country and state, if applicable), ZIP code, preferred currency, and a pair of security question and answer.
All in all, the account registration process takes a couple of minutes or so. If you type in your details quickly enough, you could even complete it in less than a minute. There is no email confirmation required. After completing and submitting the registration forms, the login interface is displayed so you can immediately proceed to logging in with your nominated username and password.
24VIP Casino User Interface
24VIP Casino has a distinctive user interface. We don’t remember a casino we have reviewed before bearing the same interface design and layout. It looks rather dated, though. It could use some aesthetic improvements, particularly to update its design language. It looks like something created in the ‘90s or early 2000s.
The 24VIP Casino interface is mostly a modal window. Once you log in, you will be limited to a modal window. You cannot open the different sections in a new tab. This is rather inconvenient. Also, if you mistakenly click on the X button on the upper right corner, you will be logged out of your account.
If you want to go to your profile page to edit your personal details, you have to click on the Cashier button at the lower left corner of the site. Once you are on the Cashier page, click on the Details/History tab. Doing this opens the My Details page where you can edit some of the details in your account. Unfortunately, you can no longer change your first name and last name. If you need to have these changed, contact customer support.
If you want to change your password, the button to click is just right beside the My Details button (profile page).
We initially thought that this online casino does not have responsible gambling features. After some digging, we found out that the casino provides the option to activate self-exclusion or a cool-off period. Deposit limits may also be imposed. These are not functions accessible through the 24VIP Casino interface, though. To use these, you have to contact support and request for them.
The 24VIP Casino website can be viewed in two languages: English and Spanish. The language toggle is on the upper right corner of the site.
24VIP Casino Games
This online casino has hundreds of games ranging from slots to table games, video poker, and specialty games.
- As usual, slots dominate the collection of games on 24VIP Casino. It has 205 slots games, which include three-reel slots, video slots, progressive slots, and 3D slots.
- The site also features 23 i-slots or interactive slots.
- The table games category has 12 games, which include blackjack, craps, pai gow, baccarat, and different variants of poker.
- The casino has seven video poker games, namely Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, Double Joker, Deuces and Joker, Tens or Better, and Jacks or Better.
- Lastly, the casino features a number of specialty games or casual games. These include bingo, keno, sudoku, scratchcard games, and a virtual racebook.
The games take time to load although it’s not that bad to make players abandon the site. In our experience, there’s a waiting time with a blank screen and another waiting time with the graphics indicating the loading of the game. In exchange for this waiting time, however, you get nice graphics and audio.
Many of the games are Flash-based. As many readers of our reviews already know, Flash is nearly an obsolete technology. Many websites and some major browsers have already abandoned it. The use of Flash in 24VIP Casino, however, has no noticeable disadvantage except maybe for the relatively slow game loading time mentioned above.
24VIP Casino has a “Play for Fun” option. Hence, it can be considered as a free bitcoin casino. You can enjoy the games on 24VIP without having to make a real money deposit. This “Play for Fun” option, however, is something you have to select prior to logging in to your account. It’s not an option right within the games.
24VIP Casino Game Software and Fairness
The games featured on 24VIP Casino are from Rival Games and Betsoft. The games are not provably fair. There are no readily provided client and server seeds that can be used to test the fairness of the game outcomes. However, the casino guarantees that its games are not being manipulated as they make use of Random Number Generators (RNG). There is no RNG certificate shown on the website, though.
Is 24VIP Casino Mobile-Friendly?
24VIP Casino can be enjoyed using mobile devices. It uses a responsive web design that allows it to automatically adjust its layout and the amount of page elements displayed when accessed by mobile devices. The mobile interface could use some improvements, though. The page elements appear constricted relative to what other mobile casinos look like.
Currencies, Deposits, and Withdrawals
24VIP Casino supports five currencies. These are US dollars (USD), euros (EUR), South African rand (ZAR), British pounds (GBP), and Australian dollars (AUD).
To make deposits, there are several methods supported. These include Visa and MasterCard credit/debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, PaysafeCard, and CASHlib. Of course, bitcoin is also one of the options. We wouldn’t be doing this review if 24VIP Casino does not accept bitcoin. The availability of these deposit options depends on the location of the player. Most countries tend to only have the bitcoin and debit/credit card options.
When it comes to withdrawals, the options available are bitcoin, Neteller, EcoCard, Skrill, and Visa cards. Visa card withdrawals are processed and completed within two to 10 business days.
Bonuses, Promotions, and VIP Program
24VIP offers several bonuses and promotions to players. They are as follows:
- 100% Match Up Bonus of up to 1,000 USD. This is the casino’s first deposit bonus and welcome bonus. It can be used in slots, keno, bingo, and specialty games. The wagering requirement is 15x the sum of the deposit made and bonus obtained.
- 240 Free Spins. This bonus is given in tandem with the first deposit bonus. After completing the 100% match bonus above, you can get 24 free spins for a period of 10 consecutive days. It can be used in video slots, interactive slots, 3D slots, and 3-reel slots only. The wagering requirement is 20x.
- 200% Match Up Bonus of up to 200 USD. This is basically the second deposit bonus or a reload bonus. It can only be used on slots, keno, bingo, and specialty games. The wagering requirement is 30x the sum of the deposit made and the bonus obtained.
- Daily Cashback. This is connected to 24VIP Casino’s VIP program. It offers a minimum of 10% cashback on the next day if a player fails to win anything on their deposit.
- 275% First Bitcoin Deposit Bonus of up to 2,750 USD. This match bonus is granted on the first time a player deposits in bitcoins. It is applicable to slots, bingo, keno, and specialty games. The wagering requirement is 33x the sum of the deposit made and the bonus obtained.
All players are automatically included in 24VIP Casino’s VIP Loyalty Program after making their first deposit. This VIP program offers a weekly match bonus ranging from 100% to 250%, a daily cashback ranging from 10% to 30% (maximum of 3,000 USD), and monthly cashback ranging from 5% to 20% (maximum of 5,000 USD).
24VIP Casino also has a affiliate or referral program that gives a 75 USD credit with a 1x wagering requirement. To take advantage of this referral program, you have to go to the Cashier page and find the Refer a Friend button on the right side. Clicking on the Refer a Friend button opens interface through which you can enter the email address of the person you want to refer.
Open to US Players
There’s nothing indicated on the 24VIP Casino website on whether or not it accepts US players. We had to contact support to inquire about this. We learned that the casino does accept US players. It can be considered a US-accepted bitcoin casino as the casino does not explicitly list the United States in its list of restricted countries. The country restrictions are only for the following: Canada, Azerbaijan, Netherlands Antilles, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Denmark, Turkmenistan, Estonia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Romania, Singapore, Bulgaria, Syria and Poland. If you are from these countries, you may only play the “fun play” version of the games on the casino.
Players who are seeking to take advantage of the anonymity that comes with bitcoin use may have to look for another online casino. 24VIP is not an anonymous bitcoin casino as it reserves the right to require a security form (asking for personal identification or proof of identity) ) at any time. The failure to go through this security form can lead to the suspension or even the termination of your account. Withdrawals may also be suspended until you are able to verify your identity.
24VIP Casino License, Regulation, and Security
The 24VIP Casino website does not provide details about the licensing and regulation of its online gambling operations. What’s mentioned is that the software and website content are copyrighted. Also, there is no official business address provided.
In terms of security, the casino uses SSL encryption as evidenced by the “https” in its URL. It is deemed the responsibility of the players to make sure that their login details (usernames and passwords) are properly secured. There is no option to enable two-factor authentication but the site has the usual session timeout, which automatically logs your account off if you are inactive.
24VIP Casino Customer Support
If you have questions or if you need assistance, you can contact 24VIP Casino’s customer support through live chat or email. Use the live chat facility by clicking on the persistent blue customer support button on the lower left corner of the site. Support is available 24/7.
You may also send your questions or concerns to 24VIP Casino’s official social media pages. The links are on the right side of the footer part of the casino’s website.
