Graphics and Software

Players who have a keen eye will note that the graphics and animations that feature in the Playtech games are sharp, colourful and vibrant. The software platform can be played in the download or instant play.

The game graphics of the download software are superior to that of the instant play and it also offers a larger game selection. It is also fast and easy to install. The instant play or Flash version of the software is suitable for Mac users. Before you decide to wager in this format ensure that the Adobe Flash Players plug-in is installed on your computer first.

Software and Special Features

When it comes to the protection of your private information Vernons Casino uses state-of-the-art SSL encryption software. The internet casino adheres to a strict policy that is in accordance with the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2001.

Variety of Games

In the gaming department Playtech does not disappoint. You can pick and choose from more than 300 casino games. The bulk of its games are video slots, table games (Blackjack variants, Baccarat, 3D Roulette Premium, Red Dog etc.), video poker, progressive jackpots and Arcade Games.

Some of the jackpot games that offers decent payouts are Pink Panther, Daredevil,  Elektra, Fantastic Four 50 lines, Gladiator, The Incredible Hulk 50 lines and Iron Man. You can play some of the best video slot games in the business to your hearts desire.

Vernons Casino also has your refined and professional player in mind. It offers a live casino where players can play their favourite table games against live dealers. You can even chat to the dealers and the pit boss which imitates that of a land base setting! The site also lists its popular games. The reason why these games are popular they offer regular payouts and their game graphics offer eye-popping visuals accompanied by pin-dropping audio.

Sign-up Bonus

Vernons Casino offers first time players a choice of two welcome bonus offers. The first deposit bonus is 100% up to £200.

Once you’ve met the play-through requirements of the first bonus the casino offers you a second bonus of 50% up to £500. This bonus is suitable for both low and medium rollers. The minimum amount needed to qualify for this bonus is £10.

The second welcome bonus is 50% up to £5,000 and tailor made for high rollers. To qualify for this bonus offer a player must deposit £1,000. 

Promotions

The site’s promotional offers compares well to industry standards. Since it offers first time customers a duel deposit bonus package that is ideal for regular and high rollers.

Players who wager regularly will receive comp points that can be exchanged for cash. For every £10 you wager you will receive 1 comp point. 100 Comp points is equivalent to £1. With regard to its latest promotions and new game releases Vernons Casino will keep you posted through its newsletter.

wagering Requirements

You’ve accepted the deposit bonus of 100% up to £200. You deposit £100 and Vernons matches your deposit with another £100 (100% match bonus). This is where it become tricky. The terms and conditions of the bonus states that before you can withdraw any winnings you must stake the deposit and the bonus 20 times. Therefore, you must stake 20x£100+£100=£4,000 before you can make a withdrawal.

Games that count 100% towards the clearing of the wagering requirements are all slot games.

The following games only count 20%: Blackjack, Video poker games (Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, etc), Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, 2 Ways Royal, Craps and Sic Bo. 

You are not allowed to use the double-up towards the clearing of the wagering requirements. You’re most probably wondering why slots games count 100% towards the wagering requirements while other games don’t. Slot games have a far higher house edge as opposed to table games like baccarat and blackjack which have lower house edges. That’s why any bonus offer is geared towards slot games.

Hint:  Before you accept the deposit bonus make sure you understand the terms and conditions attached to it. More often than not players blame the casino for its ambiguous bonus terms while the problem lies with them. From the looks of things the bonuses have more terms and conditions attached to them than a dog has fleas!

Progressives

Vernons Casino offers 20 progressive games which belongs to Playtech’s progressive jackpot network.

At the time of writing the progressive game that offered the highest payout was Beach Life. It tipped the scales at a whopping £1,86 million and counting. In February 2012 it paid out the biggest jackpot in British history when one lucky player won an incredible £5,132,428.

Other games that offer lesser jackpot amounts are Gold Rally £520,000 and Ultimate Power which offers a single payout of £406,000.

The rest of the progressive games offer smaller payouts that hover around £1,000 to £40,000.

Banking Options

Although Vernons Casino accepts international players it has a distinct British flavour to it hence the reason it only offers a limited amount of banking options. 

Deposit and withdrawal method offered are Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Visa Electron, Neteller, and Moneybookers.

If you are a regular player you can only withdraw a maximum of £5,000 per month. This term reminds me of cat that has been treed by a pack of dogs. To be honest it’s lousy at best! On the other hand if you are a VIP customer you can withdraw as much as 75,000 quid per month!

The site endeavours to process all withdrawals within a period of 1 to 4 working days. Please note that it might employ strong arm tactics and delay the withdrawal process by inducing you to wager back the funds you’ve just won.

Player Support

We could not fault the customer support at Vernons. If you want to speed up things you can use the site’s live customer support otherwise the support staff can be contacted through e-mail, fax and telephone. 

Payout Percentage

For starters Vernons Casino does not list the average payout percentage for all its games on its website. It states that its software is regularly tested for transparency by Technical Systems Testing.
