Royal Vegas is a part of the larger Fortune Lounge Group and is a well-established brand, having been online since 2000. They have one of the biggest ranges of Microgaming slots and casino games of all the sites we recommend, along with the best progressive jackpot titles too. With an overall RTP of 95.60% (its slots games rate is 95.47%), you get good value here, and the gaming experience is made more enjoyable by a well-designed and easy-to-navigate site. The Welcome Bonus gives you a chance to really boost your bankroll, and the playthrough is reasonable too.
Games & software
One of the biggest Microgaming sites I’ve played at, there are more than 500 games at Royal Vegas, including over 250 slots. You can download the free casino software client or play web-based versions of the games directly in your browser in Instant Play, most of which you can also try for free in practice mode.
Slots games are categorised as Arcade, Reel and Video, although some further refining of these would be helpful with such a large selection of games to choose from. An icon on the image for each game indicates whether it’s also available in the mobile casino. The titles on offer include:
- the latest new release Microgaming video slots, including Classic 243, Pollen Party, Emperor of the Sea, Dragonz, Shanghai Beauty
- classic 3-reel slots, such as Break da Bank, Jewel Thief, Bulls Eye, Phileas Hogg, Frost Bite, Rings and Roses, Fruit Bingo
- Microgaming’s best-known and most popular slots, like Thunderstruck (1 & 2), Avalon (1 & 2), Burning Desire, Kathmandu, Immortal Romance, Mermaid’s Millions, Vinyl Countdown
- themed video slots based on hit movies and TV shows, including Game of Thrones (paylines and ways to win),Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Bridesmaids, Tomb Raider, Battlestar Galactica
- 16 huge progressive jackpot games, including Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis, Major Millions (3 & 5 reel), King Cashalot, Tunzamunni, Treasure Nile
If you’re into card, dice and table games, there are also plenty of these here too, with some interesting variations on the classics. There’s a good range of video poker games as well:
- French, European and American roulette
- a range of blackjack games, including American, Las Vegas, European, Spanish 21, Double Exposure and Big Five
- craps and Sic Bo
- Pai Gow and 3 card poker
- JoB, 10s or Better, Aces & 8s, Deuces Wild and All Aces video poker
- bingo, keno and other number games
- over 30 different scratch cards
You can also use the same log in details to access the live dealer casino, where the games include roulette, blackjack and baccarat, streamed live and dealt by real dealers (you can even choose Playboy Bunny dealers, if you prefer).
You can play in the Royal Vegas mobile casino either via a free app (iOS and Android) which can be downloaded by scanning a QR code on the desktop site or, in the case of iOS, from iTunes. Alternatively, you can choose to play directly in the browser of any hand-held device, which means you can play on iPhones, iPads, any Android smartphone or tablet, and Blackberry devices as well.
Although the range of games is smaller in the mobile casino than at the desktop site, there is still enough choice to keep most players happy, with around 100 different games on offer. The selection of mobile slots is good and is growing all the time, and features new release games, old favourites and big paying progressive jackpots like Mega Moolah as well.
You can also play six different video poker games in the mobile casino, as well as scratch cards and a selection of table games, including craps, baccarat, blackjack and roulette.
When you sign up for a new account in the mobile casino, you receive the same three-tier Welcome Bonus as if you were playing on a PC or laptop, and your account is automatically synced so that you can play on any platform and on any device. Also, the full range of payment methods are also accepted for mobile players.
The Rewards Program (which you automatically become a member of when you sign up, with 2,500 free points), is designed to give a little something back to regular players. Every £1 you wager on slots gets you 1 point (it’s not as good for other games), and then you can exchange your points for bonus cash, at a rate of 1000 points = £1 (minimum exchange 5,000 points).
The more you play, the higher status you attain, and as you go up through the four tiers (Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond), the rewards get better. For instance, the rate at which you earn points improves, you get a better exchange rate when you cash them in, and you also get other rewards each month as well.
There are also other monthly promotions and competitions that you can take part in, often based around a particular game or special event, and there are lots of chances to win free spins and bonus reward points on an ongoing basis.

You can use a variety of payment methods to fund your account at Royal Vegas. Neteller, Skrill and EcoPayz e-wallets are all accepted for deposits, along with EntroPay virtual Visa cards and pre-paid PaySafe Card. With the exception of PaySafe Card, these methods can also be used to make withdrawals. In addition, you can use Visa credit and debit cards for both deposits and withdrawals, and MasterCard and direct bank transfer for deposits only.
If your deposit method can’t be used for withdrawals, you will receive your funds via bank cheque. There is a minimum withdrawal amount of £50 (£30 for bank cheques).
There is a 24 hour pending period on all withdrawal requests, during which time you can cancel it if you so choose. After this time, payments are processed and in the case of e-wallets and EntroPay, your funds are available immediately. However, if you withdraw to a Visa credit/debit card, you can expect additional processing time which will likely be between 3-5 working days. Bank cheques can take between 5-10 working days to process.
Anyone who likes Microgaming slots is going to want to play at Royal Vegas, as the range of games they have is one of the biggest and best around. It’s also a well-regulated site, licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and independently audited by eCogra, so you can be sure that games are fair and well run. I like the Welcome Bonus because it has a little of something for everyone, and the 47% match across all three deposits is good value. The RTP on slots is also solid, so overall it’s a site that we’re very happy to recommend.
