Graphics and Software

Everest Casino makes use of different software providers to power its gaming platform. Softwares such as Playtech and Cryptologic are well known throughout the gaming world whilst the rest are relatively unknown to us. The software of the site can only be played in the download version.

With so many software providers in its arsenal one can expect exquisite graphics and entertaining gaming sessions . Each game comes with its own customization features such as max. bet play, double up and audio settings.

In the table games you can even experience the animated voice of the dealer which imitates that of a land-based casino. Some players mind find this feature irksome especially if they have a losing hand they don’t want to be reminded by the dealer ‘you lose’.

Software and Special Features

Like most online casinos today Everest makes use of 28-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption software that protects your private information at all times. Please ensure that your login details are stored in a safe place.

Variety of Games

Everest Casino offers you a reasonable library of 300 plus games. The designers of the internet casino took the best games from each software provider each with its own unique characteristics.

If you take this into account the emphasis is on quality as opposed to quantity. The bulk of its games are 3D video slots with 3-reels. Popular video slot games that can be played are The Sopranos, The Mummy, Rocky, John Wayne and the ever popular Marvel Slot games from Playtech. It goes without saying that the site caters mainly for slots players but it also offers table games like Blackjack, Roulette, Red Dog, video pokers and a live casino.

Sign-up Bonus

Everest Casino offers its new customers a deposit bonus of 100% up to $200. Please note that this bonus is not compulsory, it’s only there to give your bankroll a much needed boost so that you can enjoy the various slot games on offer.

Before you can qualify for this bonus you must deposit at least $€10. The site also offers you a second deposit bonus of 50%. In other words if you deposit $100 or more you’ll receive a bonus of $50. In addition to these bonus offers you will also receive a fifth and tenth deposit bonus! To claim these bonuses just click on ‘Accept’ once you’re logged into the software of the casino.

*Please note, if you accept any deposit bonus there are wagering requirements attached to it that must be cleared first before you can cash out your winnings.

Promotions

We must say that from a bonus perspective Everest Casino is right up there. It offers new players an extended deposit bonus up to 10 deposits. But the site also knows how to take care of its current players by offering them a decadent VIP program.

Its VIP program comprises of 4 levels starting with Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. If you’ve accrued a certain amount of crystal points you’ll advance to the next level which offers you increased benefits such as faster withdrawals, bonuses, special promotions and so forth.  50 Crystal Points is equivalent to $1. You must have 250 bonus points before you can exchange it for cash. If you manage to accrue 30,000 points over a period of three months you automatically qualify for the site’s Platinum status.

Everest Casino will keep you posted through its newsletter with regard to its latest promotional offers, new game releases and events. 

wagering Requirements

As a first time player Everest Casino offers you a first deposit bonus of 100% up to $200. You’re not hundred percent sure what it entails but you’re enticed nonetheless.

You decide to accept the site’s deposit bonus since there’s a couple of Marvel Slot games you’d like to try out. You deposit $100 Everest throws in another $100 (100% match bonus). Great stuff! You can now play with $200. An extra $100 might come in handy especially if you want to try your luck on the site’ progressive games.

This is where it becomes interesting. Any free bonus money has a set of play-through requirements attached to it that must be cleared first before a withdrawal is permitted. In this case the wagering requirement is 20 times the deposit and the bonus. Therefore, you must stake 20x$100+$100=$4,000 if you play slot games only. Games that count 100% towards the weighting of the wagering requirements are all slots, scratch cards and other games. 

Games that count 20% towards the wagering requirement: Pai Gow, Red Dog, Let It Ride, and Stravaganza. The following games count 0%: Craps, Sic Bo, all double up options on slots and video poker games, Baccarat, Blackjack, Casino Hold’em, Punto Banco, and Roulette.

Progressives

There are more than 50 progressive jackpot games at Everest Casino some of them offer single payouts in excess of $1 million! You can wager from as little as a quarter to $25 per spin. 

Banking Options

To deposit and withdraw your cash from Everest Casino you can use the following options: Credit and Debit Cards like Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, i-Banq, e-wallets like Neteller, Skrill, paysafecard and entropay.

Before you can wager at the casino you must deposit at least $€10. The minimum withdrawal amount is $15 and the maximum cash that can be withdrawn via Credit and Debit Card per transaction is $30,000. Penny pinchers be warned, if you request a withdrawal by credit card that is below a $100 you’ll be charged a transaction fee of 2%.

Everest Casino states in its terms and conditions that it aims to process all withdrawals within a period of 48 hours to 5 working days. 

Player Support

Player support at Everest Casino can be contacted through e-mail and live chat. It does not list any telephone numbers on its website and you must fill in an online form if you want to contact the support staff at the casino. We tried the site’s live chat feature but it only available for certain countries. 

Payout Percentage

The software and Random Number Generator (RNG) at Everest Casino is tested regularly by Technical Systems Testing (TST) to ensure that the site passes the strict requirements set forth by the Gibraltar Gaming Commission. Unfortunately the site does not display the average percentage for all its games on its website.
