Having been around since 1996, InterCasino is one of the world’s first online casinos and in our opinion remains one of the best. That’s why Jackpot.co.uk has continued to recommend it for over 8 years.
Bonuses have had a bit of a shake up recently and now begin with welcome bonuses on your first three deposits. Depending on whether you choose the slots bonus, table games bonus, or all games bonus, this can be worth up to £550 and the bonuses certainly don’t stop there. After all, this is the casino that’s handed out trips to space, diamonds and Hollywood movie roles as well as cash backs, prize draws and event driven promotions.
It’s a few years old but still quite amusing. This was on air at the time of one of InterCasino’s many extravagant promotions.
With more than 30 gambling industry awards, including being the five-time winner of the Gambling Online Best Online Casino Award, InterCasino has always tried to offer casino players something a little different. Over the years they’ve caught the eye with extraordinary promotions and TV adverts, as well as being the original home to the extremely popular Marvel Comics Slots Series.
Having been around since pretty much forever, it would be understandable if InterCasino had taken their foot off the pedal at some stage. However, this Malta-based casino continues to shake things up in order to stay fresh.
InterCasino has a history of being the first online casino to house many of the most popular themed slots. Evident when you consider they were the first to get Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and more recently DC Comics slot The Flash Velocity, so if you want to be one of the first to try out the latest slots then InterCasino is a good place to start.
In 2010 a huge “brand” redesign was undertaken. It meant stepping away from the original blue and red theme that we all knew (and loved) so well and brought us the black, white and green design that can be seen today. It’s certainly not our cup of tea but at least the casino software stayed the same as it was.
Unlike many other UK focussed gambling sites, InterCasino chose not to offer sportsbook, bingo or arcade games and instead focus on what they know best, casino. They do have a poker product but it’s nothing to get excited about. Stick to the casino.
InterCasino recently had a pretty big overhaul of their welcome bonus and now offer a choice of two different packages, each consisting of bonuses on your first three deposits.
If you wish to play table games then you can receive a total of £300. However, our pick is the slots bonus which is worth up to £600 spread across three deposits in the form of 100% matched deposits. Wagering requirements are 20x on the first deposit bonus and then scale down to 15x on the second and third deposit. What’s more, you can change bonus on each deposit. For example, you can take the slots bonus on your first deposit, then the table games bonus on your second and third.
Once you do make a deposit, you’ve got 30 days to satisfy the wagering requirements.
One of the nicest features we’ve seen for a long time is the renamed ‘My Bonus 4 Life’ scheme, a personal promotions inbox that can be found in the main casino lobby. Click on this to reveal your monthly deposit and no deposit bonuses and game specific promotions for slots, blackjack and roulette. In addition to this there’s a bonus and promotions calendar that will ensure you don’t miss and of the up-and-coming special event promotions, cashbacks competitions, giveaways and tournaments.
For the big spenders there’s the InterCasino Platinum Club which offers you the chance to win once in a lifetime VIP holidays and receive bespoke weekly bonuses and promotions. Some of the more way-out promotions past and present include the winning the chance to appear in a Hollywood movie and winning a trip to space…then again you may just be happy to site at home and hit a few jackpots.
Now with more than 300 casino games under its belt, InterCasino offers an incredible amount of high quality games. Using Cryptologic software, the casino caters for almost all players’ needs with plenty of slots, jackpots, multi-player and even VIP games to keep everyone happy.
Particular highlights include the Marvel slots series and the multi-player blackjack games which allow you to play as if you were in a real casino.
As few other online casinos offer Cryptologic games, there are a number of them which are very hard to find elsewhere. An example of this is the big hitting Batman slot which includes expanding reels, a top award of 2,000x your bet, a free spins feature and the Descent into Madness feature where you have to trap the Joker to win big.
But by far the best news concerning InterCasino’s game selection is that as time goes on, more money is being paid out. The average payout rate across the entire casino has risen from 96.39% in 2009 up to more than 97% in 2012 meaning that now is a great time to get playing at InterCasino.
As you would expect, InterCasino has their fair share of Cryptologic progressive jackpot games. Jackpots which tend to grab the attention of most players are those of the Millionaire’s Club slots, but there are many more to be had.
In fact there are more than 50 jackpot games at InterCasino which is many more than can be found in most online casinos.
Non-slots fans will be pleased that they can get in on the jackpot action too. Games such as Progressive Blackjack or Super Jackpot Video Poker where you can keep the high payout percentages associated with those games as well as potentially winning a huge progressive jackpot.
InterCasino’s live casino games come courtesy of HOGaming, the company named after China’s ‘King of Gambling’. They offer blackjack, baccarat and roulette with the option of playing with Asian or European dealers. A particularly nice aspect of these games is the multi-player aspects that allow you to interact with your fellow players and the dealer better than most other games do.
For a long time InterCasino didn’t have any live casino games. Finally, in late 2012, they gave the people what they wanted and now have some of the best live games around.
