I just joined the team at Winner Casino although I have been in the online casino industry for many years. I enjoy the challenges this industry poses and not one day is the same.

Winner Casino has been in operation since it was launched in 2009. Yes, Winner Casino has earned certification from several guard dog sites, and continues to deliver the best in customer service and prompt payouts.

Who are the owners of Casino Winner and in which jurisdiction is the internet casino licensed? Does this jurisdiction offer any player protection in the event of a dispute?

Winner is operated by Zirconium Gaming Limited and is licensed in Antigua and Barbuda.

We see that the site is a new breed of internet casino what makes it so unique?

Winner strives to be on the cutting edge of online gaming. Providing unique promotions and memorable features ensures a fresh and exciting experience with every visit.

Mobile and live gaming are among the most celebrated of Winner Casino’s features.

Some Winner Casino games, like King Kong and X-Men slot machines, offer unique play options, alternate themes and story modes, allowing players to enjoy a different experience when playing games more than once.

Can you please list the various promotions Casino Winner offers new and regular players? Does it offer loyal players a loyalty point scheme and how does it work? Also mention the welcome bonus offer and the wagering requirement attached to it?

Winner Casino has several promotions available to new and returning players every day. There is also a lucrative VIP program for added rewards. Comp points are earned for every real-money wager as well. Players may redeem these points for cash when ready. VIP can raise their rank to get better comp point conversion rates, faster and larger withdrawals, gifts, exclusive bonuses, and more.

There are three welcome bonus offers for players with budgets ranging from high to low. The largest of which is a 50% bonus up to €1250 with a wagering requirement of bonus amount x 15, while the most modest is a 200% bonus up to €350 with a wagering requirement of bonus amount x 22.

Most Winner Casino players come from the EU and Scandinavia, with the majority of our players coming from England, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Finland, and Russia.

Which slots and table games are currently popular with players? What is the biggest recent payout amount/s and on which casino game/s was it?

The progressive jackpot slots and games featuring Marvel Heroes are some of the most popular at Winner Casino. Live and mobile gaming options enjoy a large following as well.

In 2012, Tony E. of the United Kingdom won an incredible £693,517 on the Monty Python Spamalot slot game. More recently, in early 2013, David C. of the United Kingdom won a Winner raffle event where the grand prize was an all-expense paid trip for two to Universal Orlando.

Does Casino Winner have a self-exclusion option in place to players who wagered more than they intended to? 

If by that you mean Winner Casino has safe guards in place for those who feel they may be suffering from gambling addiction, then yes. Winner has several means to curb player’s gambling if they choose for those steps to be taken, such as setting daily weekly or monthly betting limits, freezing accounts and more. Winner Casino will also take steps to curb a players gambling if we feel it is necessary to a player’s well-being.

Responsible gambling is something we take very seriously at Winner. There are many support options for players who feel they are at risk or are suffering from signs of addiction available at Winner in the casino’s ‘Responsible Gambling’ section.

Which deposit and withdrawal options are popular with players? What is the minimum and maximum weekly withdrawal amount? 

With 40 methods in all, there are plenty of options for players to choose from. Some are faster than others, some have bonuses attached when making deposits with that selected method. It really depends on what fits a player’s situation best.

The most popular among our players are Skrill, NETELLER, PaysafeCard, Visa and MasterCard.

The Minimum deposit amount is £20, while the Maximum is £50,000 in any 30 day period.

How does a player register a casino account and which documents must the player provide upon registration?
