Virgin Games Review

Virgin is one of the biggest brands in the world. Their foray into the online casino and bingo industry has been, as you would expect, successful, but it’s fair to say that they probably don’t have the market share that many would have envisaged when the gambling sector emerged.

That being said, with the resources that the brand has a whole, there are few companies that can really compete when it comes to marketing, which is one of the reasons why they have one of the biggest casino and bingo rooms in the industry.

Casino Games

At Virgin you’re going to be able to take advantage of their 200% welcome bonus when you register a new account. Basically it’s a deposit £10 get £20 bonus for your troubles and with this comes one of the most ‘user-friendly’ promotions in the business. But, the bonus is actually available to deposits up to £100 to get the full £200 on offer. It’s worth noting that obviously you are able to deposit more than £100 should you wish, but this is the maximum you can claim for this offer.

You will need to clear the full bonus amount within 30 days of it hitting your account and then you need play through the bonus and your deposit just 4 times, which is extremely low compared with the majority of these types of offers.

Other Promotions

V Points

V Points are points that you earn with every real money wager that you make at the casino. You earn 1 V Point for every £20 spend at the casino and the points can then be redeemed for cash from the V Store or even flying miles, with Virgin Airlines. If you decide to go down the air miles route then you will earn 1 mile for every V Point that you make. If you decide for cash route then you get £0.20 for every 20 points you earn.

Cash Back

You’re able to choose a time and date when you are most likely to play at Virgin Casino to turn this time into your cash back section. Basically all you need to do is wager £30 or more within your slot and Virgin will give you up to £20 in cash rewards should you not make a profit in that time. The cash back amount will be 10% of your total loses, up to a maximum of £20.

Software and Games

Virgin are paired with Waterworks software provider for their casino games, offering up some of the best looking games in the industry. Waterworks actually team up with a number of high profile online casinos, making them an obvious choice for someone like Virgin.

The software can be accessed via your browser or alternatively can be played on their mobile casino app. There are no download versions for the desktop version, but the instant play browser games are compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.

Table Games

You’re getting a good range of table games to choose from at Virgin, with the usual suspects all on offer such as roulette, blackjack, video poker, Keno, Stud Poker, Hi-Lo, Craps and Baccarat. With this comes a few variations of each game, but with both blackjack and roulette you’re going to be looking at about half a dozen variants for each.

Slots

You’ve got well in excess of 100 slots to choose from at the Virgin Casino. Whilst this number may not be as high as some online casino’s, the range of games is more than enough for most players and to be honest, is much more manageable than having to trawl through the neck end of 500 slots.

The highlights include Rainbow Riches, Wonderland, Cleopatra, Da Vinci Diamonds, Starburst and Deal or No Deal. What’s great about Virgin is that you can demo the games for free, in fact, you don’t even need an account to play the free-play version of each game, perfect for getting to know a format before having to deposit.

Progressive Jackpots

The progressive jackpot games are the only real chink in the casinos armour. You’ve got roughly half a dozen or so to play on, but they aren’t the easiest to find when you’re in the casino. A simple jackpot section or at least highlighted would help, luckily for us we know what most of the titles look like and could spot them, but for the untrained eye it’s going to be much harder.

About Virgin Games

Virgin Games were set up on the back of Richard Branson’s, Virgin Group, in 2003. Since then the company have been acquired by Gamesys – bingo software provider- but still run under the Virgin Brand of whom own a considerable share in the company to oversee how it’s run.

As mentioned earlier in the article, it was widely thought that Virgin, with their massive amounts of financial backing, would simply storm the industry and also muscle their way to the top. However, this was not the case. The poker room was arguably their biggest success for a number of years in the early 2000’s, but the lack of US customers and the problems surrounding banking with online poker laid too much for a niche room and that has since been ceased and re-branded.

The casino and bingo rooms have both done well, but again, haven’t been the success that most had assumed was inevitable. With that being said, Virgin have always said that they were trying to keep it a ‘very British affair’ with these two game types, and with that must come some compromise in terms of how big they can – or want – to become.
