PartyCasino History And License
PartyCasino is an award-winning gaming site launched back in 1997. There are multiple reasons the 2018 Casino of the Year still going strong more than 20 years later and one of them is doubtlessly its generous online gaming library created with the help of 30 or so developers.
PartyCasino is one of the brands owned by GVC Holdings PLC, one of the largest sports betting and gaming groups in the world. Headquartered in the Isle of Man, the Group has acquired licenses in more than 20 countries and has its shares traded on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.
The company was founded in 2004 in Luxembourg as Gaming VC Holdings. In 2016 GVC acquired Bwin, Party Digital Entertainment and two years later also the Ladbrokes Coral Group, thus becoming the largest high street bookmaker in the UK. Nowadays the group boasts more than 20 gaming brands, 900+ games offered online and over 3,500 Ladbrokes and Coral betting shops. Bets are accepted in 21 languages and 19 currencies.
GVC Holdings has a number of licences in various jurisdictions, including Alderney, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Jersey, Malta, Northern Ireland, Philippines, Romania, Republic of Georgia, Spain, UK and USA (New Jersey and Nevada). In addition to its consumer-facing brands, the Group provides B2B services to operators such as MGM Resorts International (US), state-owned Danske Spil and French betting operator PMU. It’s a proud winner of reputable industry awards, such as Casino Operator, Poker Operator, and Operator of the Year at the EGR Awards in 2018.
Starburst, Bonanza, King Kong Cash, Vikings Go Berzerk, The Naked Gun, Immortal Romance and Foxin’ Wins are some of those which players keep betting on even though they’ve been around for a while. Don’t miss the opportunity to try titles you may be seeing for the first time, such as Glamour Puss, Melon Madness Deluxe, and Full Moon Fever, and make sure to browse through an impressive collection of progressive jackpots many of which offer rewards worth close to or above £1 million.
On top of an incredible choice of slots, you’ll find about 35 table games and among them more than a dozen roulette variants. There’s your standard European, American and French games, two of which also played as Cash Back variants, and unique titles such as Luck O’ The Roulette, 100/1 Roulette, Lucky Star and Terminator Roulette with a progressive jackpot. Next, you’ll find standard blackjack games as well as one called Charlie 7, The Terminator I’ll Be Back Blackjack, Hi-Lo Blackjack and a few variants offering Perfect Pairs and 21+3 side bets.
The choice of RNG poker is very small but there are a few more, highly engaging options within live casinos. A modest collection of video poker games consists of single and multi-hand Tens Or Better, Joker Poker Deuces Wild, and an interesting Jacks Or Better title which lets you choose between modern and retro style. Finally, you’ll find a choice of about 40 so-called instant win games such as Slingo, bingo, arcade games, and scratch cards.
If you want to take the party on the road, the operator will offer you to play online or download a casino app from App Store (iPhone and iPad users) or via link available at the PartyCasino website (Android owners). It’s quite common for the gaming assortment to shrink massively when you move from desktop to a smartphone, but I always hope to find an exception. PartyCasino, unfortunately, isn’t one. Its mobile portfolio is about half the size – slots have been butchered the most, but video poker games disappear entirely.
PartyCasino Betting Limits
PartyCasino has attempted to do the same, allowing you to play whichever kind of game you choose with betting limits fitting your bankroll and preferences. When it comes to slots, that means you’ll be able to spin for just 9p while playing NetEnt’s Dead Or Alive, and invest as little as 10p with Starburst, The Wild 3, Joker Pro, Deco Diamonds and a number of other games. If lucky enough to have a bigger budget at your disposal, it is possible, though not advisable, to drop £400 per round in Butterfly Staxx or as much as £500 in 7’s To Burn and Monopoly On The Money.
As far as table games are concerned, they all come with a minimum bet of 10p. High-rollers are able to bet as much £10,000 on roulette, no more than £2,500 on blackjack, and a maximum of £5,000 on poker. The same type of games play live with limits of 20p – £10,000 at live roulette tables, 50p – £10,000 at live blackjack tables, 50p – £5,000 in live poker, and £2 – £25,000 in live baccarat. Poker fans can alternatively wager between 10p and £600 while playing video poker games.
he menu at the top of the page offers instant access to categories, with featured games, exclusives, top releases, new titles and several other categories displayed just below. Other useful links are placed at the very bottom, along with the Contact Us button which lists available contact options and an overview of frequently asked questions.
The website may not be the fastest loading one but is at least pretty easy to navigate. Games are grouped in categories according to type as well as themes, though filtering options are a bit limited considering the number of featured slots. Players wishing to access PartyCasino’s offering can do so either via their mobile or desktop web browsers or by downloading the casino software.
Finding something to play is quite easy unless you are looking for a particular kind of slot or one provided by a particular developer; this is where additional filtering options would come in handy. A good portion of the available games was supplied by NetEnt, one of the industry leaders. The company has produced hundreds of slots, table games, video poker and specialties with top-quality graphics, engaging gameplay, and creative features. NetEnt has succeeded even where it’s major competitor Microgaming failed, creating a live gaming portfolio frequently presented next to that of Evolution Gaming.
PartyCasino may have opted not to include the latter in its offering, but it made sure to provide a good number of slots. Other top developers found at PartyCasino include Yggdrasil and Realistic Games. Due to my download issue, I was only able to access them online, but hopefully, you’ll get to choose. The customer support agent has informed me they haven’t lately had such complaints so it may be a random issue.
PartyCasino Customer Service
The well-trained and courteous support team is there to help 24 hours a day, every single day of the week. You can send them an email, use a web-based form to ask for assistance, call an international phone number or one of 26 country-specific toll-free numbers. Appropriately impressed by the latter, I won’t forget to mention there is also a live chat option which is usually the fastest way to get an answer or resolve an issue. I had an enjoyable exchange with Katerina who did her best to resolve my download issue.
You may be interested to know that PartyCasino is quite active on Twitter so this may be another way to get in touch. But before you choose any of these, check to see if the provided FAQ list includes the information you’re looking for. Players are offered to select a category that best fits their query and in return, the website displays a list of relevant subjects. It provides information about account access and verification, deposits and withdrawals, bonuses and promotions, responsible gaming and more.
