Circus Casino Review
- Bonus & Wagering
- Payout Percentage
- Customer Support
As of the 20th of June 2013 Circus Casino will suspend all operations. It no longer accepts any new customers.
Circus is rather an odd name for an online casino. Since the name “circus” is normally associated with trapeze artists, wild animals and clowns let alone with internet gambling. As the old saying goes “never judge a book by its cover”. At times a name can be misleading; nowadays Circus Casino is considered to be one of the UK’s top-performing internet casinos. It is owned and operated by the $17 billion strong global Group Genting and licensed in Alderney.
The Genting Group has a longstanding reputation in the British casino industry and provides sterling service to its clients and staff members alike. It also has 40 casino brands spread across three of the county’s premier brands. They are Circus, Mint and Maxims which is part of the same group that owns and manages five of London’s most prestigious land-based casinos such as: Crockford’s, the oldest private gaming club to date, The Colony Club, The Palm Beach, Maxims Casino Club and The Mint.
New players are offered a deposit bonus of 100% up to £150. Before you can cash out any winnings you must stake the deposit and the bonus 25 times. Games that count 100% towards the clearing of the welcome bonus are all slots. Once you have deposited £10 or more the bonus will be added to your account automatically.
Circus Casino offers players 150 quality casino games that ranges from progressive slots, table games, live casino dealers, Asian & Arcade games and video poker. Games can be played in either the Download or ‘Instant Play’ versions. Mac players can use the ‘Instant Play” format of Circus Casino. Playtech is the software provider that powers its gaming platform. We highly recommend the Marvel Comic video slot games such as The Incredible Hulk, King Kong Slots, Iron Man 2, Fantastic 4 since some of them offer progressive jackpots and free spins.
Suffice it to say that the customer support at Circus Casino is adequate. It can be contacted through live chat, e-mail and toll free numbers. The site endeavours to respond to all e-mail queries within a period of 6 hours. A FAQs is also available to first time players. Before you contact customer support please go through it since it addresses questions about the site’s deposit and withdrawal options, technical questions, types of games offered and so forth.
