Matthew was kind enough to gives us a peek what goes on behind the scenes at Sky Vegas Casino. Thanks Matt
Alderney is known as one of the most stringent licensing jurisdictions and shows we work to the highest standards. It is a identified as a white listed jurisdiction as it means it is one of the few juridictions that have met the requirements set by the UK Gambling Act 2005, meaning they are allowed to advertise gambling services in the UK. It has been called “one of the most rigorous regulatory regimes anywhere in the world. See here for more details: http://www.gamblingcontrol.org/ .

Sky Vegas is a unique prospect due to its strong, reputable brand name that provides an element of trust for players. It’s also unlike many other casinos in that it’s browser based and offers games from a wide range of suppliers, such as Playtech, IGT and WagerWorks.

We use a multitude of providers to ensure whatever a players interest, from table games to cutting edge new slot titles, their interests are catered for. With such a huge range on offer graphics and animations vary, but everything is designed to give you the feel of a real casino in your very own home. In one word: stylish.
The welcome bonus is a fantastic addition to our £10 completely offer and appeals to the more experienced casino players as well as those looking for something a little extra. The majority of our players take advantage of it. Furthermore, the wagering requirements are some of the most generous in the industry – players looking to receive the full £1000 bonus will have to stake £25,000 if they play slot games. Other game types do have different contributions.
We have a monthly stakeback scheme where players can earn a£250 bonus by earning points on a variety of games. Every 200 points earned equals a £1 bonus.

These include offers such as lucky numbers on roulette spins and prizes for the most winning spins on new slots.
Debit cards prove a popular deposit method but we also accept Skrill, Neteller, Paypal and credit cards. Player can decide their own deposit limit, but the minimum is £5. There is no fixed weekly withdrawal limit.
The RNG in use by Openbet, who develop the majority of our own brand games was carried out by TST, now Gaming Labs International. The audit took place in 2008 and no changes have been made since. A further audit would occur if any changes were made to the code. As we use a large amount of suppliers their RNGs will have also been audited by other companies. We have a current payout percentage 95.9%.
