Virgin Casino
 

Summary

Virgin Casino is wholly owned by the Virgin Group. It was set up in 2004. The online casino operates under a license from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. Players from the United States cannot wager at Virgin Casino. The highlight of Virgin Casino is that it offers its players games from a number of leading software suppliers. Therefore the players do not have to hop from one online casino to another in order to get the required variety.

Virgin Casino accepts deposits in British pounds, euros and US dollars. A number of deposit options are available. These include credit cards from Visa and MasterCard, debit cards like Visa Delta, Visa Electron, Maestro and Solo, electronic wallets like Neteller and PayPal and bank transfers. The Virgin Casino customer service team works round the clock. The team can be contacted using e-mail, live chat or phone. Players from the United Kingdom are provided with a toll free phone number.

Software

Virgin Casino began operations on the WagerWorks software platform but later switched to EDGE platform of Gaming Technology Solutions (GTS). This platform is capable of accepting the best games from a host of online gaming software providers, which include WagerWorks, Cryptologic, Freemantle, Endemol, Dynamite Idea, VS Gaming, NextGen Gaming, Electracade and Ash Gaming. Virgin Casino also offers Microgaming online casino games through the QuickFire platform.

Virgin Casino is different from many other online casinos in that it does not offer a download version of the software. Only the Flash version is offered, which can be played directly online through the browser. The software is compatible with major browsers like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox and Windows operating system. A 56k modem and monitor setting of 1024x786 are recommended. Many of the games are available in a less graphics rich version and can be played even if the recommended specifications are not being met.

The software allows players to wager for free or with real money. Account balances are not maintained for players wagering for free. They can select the desired play money amount when they access the games. When they exit the games the balance is lost. Real money players have to deposit their own funds.

Games

Virgin Casino offers the complete range of online casino games. The focus is on providing variants with innovation. The casino poker and video poker games are clubbed in the same category. The video poker games are unique because they have thematic settings. Lucky Draw video poker games have a Western setting and Phantom Belle video poker games have an eerie setting.
