Software and Special Features

Overall the game variety is okay. Drake Casino in conjunction with Betsoft and Proprietary software offers 160 plus games. The games will appeal to recreational and seasoned players who prefer buffet-styled gaming.
Of particular interest is the slot games hence the casino offers first time players a hefty bonus to try out the various slots. That being said, it not only caters to slots aficionados but to players who enjoy playing table games, video pokers and speciality games. We recommend Cash Grab Slots not only is it a progressive jackpot but it’s not as volatile as some of the other slots.
The sign up bonus of up to $5,000 is huge and ideal to medium and high rollers. It is strung out over three deposits. The first is 100% up to $2,000, the second 100% up to $1,000 and the third 100% up to $2,000. To qualify for the bonus $25 must be deposited first. If you are not interested in the bonus notify the casino before you register an account.
Here is an example: Colin deposits $200, Drake Casino doubles his deposit (100% match bonus). He can now play with $400.
Drake Casino offers loyal players ongoing promotions ranging from free spins, weekly promotions, 10% cash back on losses, a VIP Rewards Plan and mobile rebates to players who wager via their mobile phones.
Unfortunately the free spins bonuses are by invitation only. We advise new players to sign up for the casino’s newsletter it will bring them up to speed with regard to its latest promotional offers and other events.
The bonus of up to $5,000 ( spread over 3 deposits) carries a wagering requirement of 40 times the deposit and the bonus sum. What does this mean? It simply means that the wagering requirements must be met first before Drake Casino allows you to cash out any winnings from the bonus.
This is how it works: Edith deposits $500, she receive an additional $500 (100% match bonus). She can now play with$1,000. The wagering requirements states that she must roll over 40x$500+$500=$40,000 before she can make a withdrawal. Truth be told the restrictions associated with the bonus is ridiculously steep.
