Golden Casino is one of the newest faces on the online gambling scene. Owned by Hambledon N.V., Golden Casino is managed and operated by an accredited staff with several years of experience in the land-based and online casino gambling industries. Golden Casino is licensed and regulated by the Curacao Gaming Commission, which is the premier online gaming regulator of the self-governing Netherlands Antilles - part of the Kingdom of Netherlands.
Located off of the coast of Venezuela, Curacao is the largest and most populous island in the Lesser Antilles chain. Gaming servers and company operations are located here and are physically protected and overseen on a 24-hour basis. Security is the main issue of concern at Golden Online Casino Games, which back-end operations ensure by using Secure Socket Layer 3.0 technology and 128-bit encryption on all stored player data and transactions with the casino cashier. Golden Casino itself may be a young entity; However, the experience of its managerial team is a major plus for gaming here.
One of the most up-and-coming, innovative casino software developers - Vegas Technology - powers the games at the Golden Casino. Formerly known as Odds On, Vegas Technology gives a new face and name to its longstanding predecessor. Odds On has been around since the dawn of the gaming industry - first starting off as an eCash processor, for which they were instrumental in introducing innovative technology and security protocols. They later blossomed into an in-house graphics developer and game designer, and have since been powering several well-known and respected online casinos Golden Casino is one of them. Vegas Technology was created after a major upgrade to the Odds On gambling platform, and in a very short time has already garnered several official awards, including “Top Casino Software” in 2005.
Accessing the gaming platform is a simple process, and can be done by first downloading the free software directly from the GoldenOnline Casino Games website or from a CD, which can be obtained by contacting customer support. As of yet, there are no links on their website for accessing a no-download, Flash version of their software, although the Frequently Asked Questions section refers to a Golden Casino Flash version (We suggest players contact customer support if interested in gambling with their Flash software). The downloadable version is compatible with Windows XP/2000/NT/98/95 and is accompanied by an installation wizard and tutorial, which facilitates the download and sign-up process. All downloads are guaranteed safe from malware and spyware.
Bonuses & Promotions
Golden Casino starts all new players off with a Welcome Bonus. 100% up to $555 Free is being offered currently, and in our opinion, is one of the best single deposit bonuses being offered right now. The wagering requirement is only 10x the amount of the bonus plus the initial deposit, and is monitored and automatically tabulated by a bonus account that players can view while logged into their account by clicking on the word “Bonus”, located under one’s account balance.
There are several game limitations for meeting the wagering requirement (players can essentially only play slots and keno), and Golden Casino advises players to avoid playing non-eligible games with real money before the play-through is met. Players can withdraw funds at any time but should be advised that doing so before meeting the wagering requirement will result in voided bonus money.
In addition to comp points for all players who make real money wagers, Golden Casino offers an invitation-only VIP Program, which means that players who bet with real money on a repeated basis, will be invited to join. If you feel as if you are entitled to join and have not been asked as of yet, contact customer support, who will consider your request. There are several VIP levels, which each member will be assigned depending on the volume of gambling one participates in. Several bonuses are available for VIP members, including 25% bonuses every Monday, 50% bonuses every Wednesday, and 100% bonuses every Friday up to $250 Free. 15% wire transfer bonuses and weekly surprise bonuses are also available.
