CasinoMax is an online casino that focuses on providing players “the VIP experience.” Its operators claim to be “iGaming experts” who want to emphasize that the casino’s customer support team are real people, not machines. With this, CasinoMax promises to provide the expertise and knowledge that will make players’ time on the casino “as enjoyable as possible.”
With nearly 200 games in its collection, CasinoMax does not compare to leading online casinos that have hundreds of online gambling options. It only accepts two currencies and its deposit and withdrawal options are quite limited. It accepts bitcoins although players will not be maintaining balances in their accounts in bitcoins. Nevertheless, it’s a promising mobile-friendly online casino with a neatly-organized user interface.
CasinoMax has a responsive customer support team. It has numerous bonuses and promotions. It is a licensed online casino created to serve players in different parts of the world. While it has a long list of country restrictions, it accepts players from the United States and its territories. It is not an anonymous online casino but it guarantees player privacy and employs standard account security measures including SSL encryption technology used by financial institutions.
To get a CasinoMax account, you have to go through a three-step process. First, you have to fill out a form for your account information, wherein you have to enter your first name, last name, email address, preferred username, preferred password, and currency. The second step is for the address. For this, you have to enter your specific address, city, country, state/province, and postal code. Lastly, you have to enter your personal details, particularly your date of birth, gender, and mobile number. You then have to click on the checkbox/tick box indicating that you accept the casino’s Terms and Conditions before clicking on the Register button.
You will be automatically logged into your account as you finish the account registration process. There is no email verification or account validation required before you are allowed to log in.
In our experience, signing up for an account took around a couple of minutes. It’s relatively long but it’s a straightforward process since there is no more email verification involved.
CasinoMax User Interface
The CasinoMax interface changes as you log in. It looks noticeably different from the website before you sign up for an account. It’s an intuitive interface and neatly-organized interface, though.
The navigation buttons are on the left side (sidebar). There are three buttons on the topmost part of the sidebar: one for accessing live chat, another for contacting support via email, and a hide/show button for accessing the Comp Points page, going to the Contact Us page, and logging out. Below these three buttons is the Cashier button, through which you can open the page for making deposits and withdrawals. In the middle part of the sidebar is the links for viewing the different games on the casino according to their categories.
There is no quick access button/link to go to the Profile or My Account page. The casino does not appear to have a Profile page. There’s a My Account tab in the Cashier interface but it does not provide options for editing account information, changing the password, setting gambling limits, or enabling two-factor authentication.
There are nearly 200 games in Casino Max. Of note, you can’t view all of them in one grid or list. Instead, you can only go over them through according to their categories.
- The Table Games category has 21 games including different variants of baccarat, blackjack, poker, pontoon.
- The Slots category features more than 110 games. These include 3-reel, 5-reel, and 6-reel slots as well as bonus round and progressive games.
- There are 54 games in the Video Poker category. The category features 1-hand, 3-hand, 10-hand, and 52-hand games to choose from. Popular games such as Aces and Eights, All American Poker, Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild, Double Jackpot Poker, Jacks or Better, Sevens Wild, and Joker Poker are available.
- CasinoMax also has a Specialty Games category that offers 6 games namely American Roulette, Craps, European Roulette, Keno, Treasure Tree, and Banana Jones.
The casino has 6 progressive jackpot slots. These are Aztec’s Millions, Caribbean Hold’Em Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Let’Em Ride, Megasaur, and Spirit of the Inca.
The games on CasinoMax may not be “quick-loaders” (fast to load) but they have good graphics and audio. They need the Adobe Flash Player to run.
The games don’t come with a Play for Fun or Practice mode. As such, CasinoMax cannot be considered as a free bitcoin casino. You have to make a real money or bitcoin deposit to be able to play the games.
CasinoMax Game Software and Fairness
CasinoMax sources its games from Real Time Gaming (RTG). The games are not provably fair, but the casino guarantees that it implements a fair gaming system. It supposedly has a certified Random Number Generator (RNG), but there is no copy of this RNG certificate posted on the site. CasinoMax says that its games are independently tested on a monthly basis by Technical Systems Testing (TST), an international organization devoted to carrying out objective tests evaluating the fairness of casino games.
Is CasinoMax Mobile-Friendly?
With its responsive web design, CasinoMax does not alienate players who prefer to enjoy the games using their smartphones or tablet computers. Its mobile-friendly website automatically adjusts its layout and the amount of content it displays to be easily navigable on small screens.
