Ever since its creation in 1997, the staff at PartyCasino have always tried to pitch their casino as a cool and quirky place to play. Eye-catching TV adverts, imaginative promotions and a selection of slots that are unique to PartyCasino have all been created in order to help this Gibraltar-based casino to provide something different.
The theme of being different continues into the welcome bonus, with £750 that can be used to play slots or a specific roulette bonus which can be worth up to £250. Roulette welcome bonuses are something of a rarity, making PartyCasino ideal for fans of the ultimate game of chance.

In 2010 PartyGaming merged with bwin to create the largest online gambling company in the world – bwin.party Digital Entertainment. While this was big news for the industry, it’s had little effect on the casino except for reassuring players that they can trust PartyCasino with their money.
The casino has continued to do what it has been doing since 1997 – which is primarily offering online players a bit of variety in their casino gambling. Most casinos tend to offer games made by Microgaming or Playtech but PartyCasino use proprietary software, meaning that they make all of their games in house.
So regardless of what other online casinos you’ve played in, PartyCasino guarantees you something different.
Another thing that particularly stands out is the tournaments and live slot contests that are on offer. They come in three different formats – chips tournaments, cash tournaments and single or chain tournaments – and all three add an extra edge to your casino play.
Also worth a look is the VIP scheme called the Palladium VIP scheme. This is known to be one of the better online casino VIP schemes around thanks to exclusive VIP games, birthday and account anniversary bonuses as well as much more. Given this information it’s no surprise really that PartyCasino is a big hit with the high rollers.
Join Party Casino now and you’ve a choice of two welcome bonuses. They’ve been created to be played on different games so the one you choose should depend on which games you want to play.
The first is for slots players and is a £750 bonus. This is a 100% deposit match offer and includes wagering requirements of 20x. The code you need to use for this one has changed over the years, so check the Promotions page before registering your account to make sure you don’t miss out.
Next is the icing on the cake. It’s a £250 roulette bonus which can be used on all roulette and live roulette games. It’s also a 100% deposit match offer and the code for this one has been ‘Free250′ for ages now. Wagering requirements for this bonus are at 30x which still isn’t bad considering how rare roulette bonuses are.
Once past the welcome bonus there’s a casino calendar to highlight what promotions are on at the moment. This can help if you don’t have the best memory and will ensure that you don’t miss out.
When it comes to the games library at PartyCasino, the slots tend to steal the show. Unique slots and jackpot slots that can’t be found elsewhere such as Frank Sinatra, Fantastic Four and Terminator provide the highlights. The selection of big name slots continues expanding too, with bwin.party co-CEO Jim Ryan famously pledging a focus on ‘Hollywood blockbuster themed slots’ that has certainly come to fruition in the months and years since.
But no casino can survive on slots alone so PartyCasino also has plenty of table and card games to revitalise your casino play. These include all of the old favourites and a few lesser known games.
One table game that we’ve found ourselves returning to regularly is Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker. This is one of the best forms of casino poker we’ve come across and certainly isn’t harmed by payouts as big as 40-1.
While the number of PartyCasino live dealer games is fairly small at just three, there’s more than first meets the eye to them.
First of all you’re able to choose between regular live dealer games and Macau live dealer games. The differences are where the studio is based and the sort of dealer that you can expect to see. The live roulette game has been particularly popular of late, with players relishing the real life casino experience.
When it comes to progressive jackpots, PartyCasino have kept things simple and have just five jackpots on offer in the casino.
However these jackpots are spread out over a number different games meaning that they increase rapidly. Party claim that more than 90,000 people have won a jackpot, which only makes playing one even more enticing.
The main progressive jackpot to look out for is The Big One which often goes to more than £1 million and has been known to climb to above £3.5 million. Other notable jackpots include the Gold Jackpot and the Progressive Caribbean Poker Jackpot – this is only found on Progressive Caribbean Poker, but offers potentially many tens of thousands of pounds.
PartyCasino Mobile is finally here. Given that most of their games are proprietary so they had to turn them into mobile games themselves, we can understand why there was a delay but they didn’t half make us wait.
Now that it is here the PartyCasino Mobile product is compatible with pretty much all modern smartphones – although strangely, when we reviewed the site from a desktop computer, on our first visit we got redirected to the mobile site for no apparent reason (and it said it wasn’t compatible with our ‘mobile device’).
In terms of games, they’ve started small with blackjack, roulette and a few slots. Included in these slots is Melon Madness which also means that the Big One jackpot is available for the first time in a mobile casino.
