RoadHouse Reels Casino Review
Those that know me will emphatically agree: I have a nostalgic streak and so it was very serendipitous that I was asked to review RoadHouse Reels Online Casino which claims to offer a glimpse into a bygone era of rock ’n roll.
I hope to express in this analysis how utterly and pleasantly surprised I was to find that this pink emblazoned establishment has retro charm and a whole lot of history. For those that don’t want to read more than a paragraph: Contemporary in all the right ways, the ambience and flair is quaint, honest and entertaining – something that should never go out of style, even in an age of chain groups and franchising.
I can put it another way: If you add a booth, Formica counter and a cup of joe, you’d swear you were in a sort of modern Starbucks version of a 50’s dinner.
Before I go on and on, let me just say that playing online for me has as much to do with the “feel” of the casino as it has to do with the games and winning. Some people don’t care much for a casino’s look and theme, as long as the bottom line is right, and I respect that. For me, if I’m going to be spending my money and time to be entertained, I like to choose an establishment that is great to look at, with a heartbeat and gorgeous graphics, because that tells me the people behind the scenes are proud of what they offer and will, therefore, go the extra mile to make sure everything is the best it can be.
I was not disappointed. RoadHouse Reels, as you can probably gather from the title, offers a spin fest to those who like to supersize their gaming. In keeping with the theme, they offer a buffet of online casino games selected to satisfy any craving, and with their abundant selection of offers and some of the best payouts in the industry (a very respectable 97%), it doesn’t matter whether you prefer a fun appetizer or huge portions. You’re guaranteed to find something tasty to play and win on, no matter how fussy you are.
Okay – so I’m not going to ride the food-thing all the way, but you’ve got to admit: choosing from a menu of competitions, promotions and games is rather novel, and you have to agree that online gambling is simply better if you have something delicious to nibble on. For me, food and fun are synonymous, and it may be part of the reason I found RoadHouse Reels so utterly unique and refreshing.
Bonuses and Promotions
If you’re not into choice, this is not the online casino for you. The promotions on offer are varied and they get updated very regularly, so there’s always something fun and exciting happening. I liked the variety, because it means that many different tastes are satisfied. By the way, I liked them all, but that’s after I claimed the massive New Player Bonus and I’d like to expand on that a bit.
The New Player Bonus (Welcome Bonus for those that know it by another name), is a tiered extravaganza totalling a whopping $1,000 in free bonus money with a 30 free spins treat sandwiched in the middle. You start with a 110% bonus and end with a 125% bonus. Excellent, EXCELLENT value and I really got to know the ins and outs of this online casino whilst enjoying this starter pack.
To get going is as easy as 1; 2; 3.
- Register an account and then login with your email address.
- Go to “Deposit” (easy to find in the top bar & same as Cashier) and make your deposit.
- Then click on Bonus, enter the code and play.
PS: The code for the 110% Bonus is RHWB1.
When I got to my 30 free spins, I didn’t realise at first that I still have to go the Deposit tab (Cashier), although of course it wasn’t necessary to deposit. From the DEPOSIT/Cashier page, you simply click on Bonus, enter the code and play.
So if you’re going to join this casino with some free money or free spins, remember this handy tip. Dead easy if you think about it, I just didn’t realise I could go to the Cashier and NOT deposit. I suppose that’s because I don’t often claim freebies and prefer to deposit to see what the playthrough requirements are and how easy deposits and withdrawals are. Part of the job!
When I registered my account, I instantly got a verification and welcome email, and that set the right tone for me – knowing they’re not a fly by night rookie concern. (Hardly. They’re part of a group that’s been around since 2001.)
Since I signed up during my birthday month, you can imagine how surprised I was when I received an email telling me that whilst my birth sign is in the zodiac, I’ll be getting a total of 600 free spins on top of my regular daily offers, which, by the way, totals just over $20,000 per month – and that’s without the special promo deals and gifts.
Honestly, I’ve got to tell you, I got so much from them; there was absolutely NO reason to play anywhere else.
Which brings me to another point. Through the years I’ve gathered from players that I’ve interviewed and friends who gamble online that in their experience, if they stick to a single brand, they tend to win more. (Plus, this way you ensure all your loyalty points get added into one basket, making sure that you get more value for your buck.)
It makes sense. RoadHouse Reels certainly gave me more than enough incentive to stick around and if I wanted to use it all, there simply was no time in the day to hop backwards and forwards between casinos.
Plus, I like to make a sizeable deposit right of the bat and then relax, knowing that it’ll last me a good amount of time. I simply don’t believe in making deposit after deposit after deposit and interrupting my play and the rhythm of the game.
Payments, Safety, Security
It’s the perfect transition to get to deposit and withdrawal options at RoadHouse Reels Casino. All the major credit and debit cards are available as options, as well as Skrill, Ecopayz, Neteller and Bitcoin. All casino transactions are conducted using 128-bit encryption technology.
Transactions are processed in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, Euros, British Pound, Danish Krone, Norwegian Krone & Swedish Krona/Kronor.
RoadHouse Reels offer super fast withdrawals online and depending on the option chosen, this can be within 24 HOURS. (Told you it was fast!)
Players with large, first-time withdrawals may need to comply with certain security requirements. I like the protection this signifies. Winnings will be sent to you immediately after verification of the identification information that you have sent and if you provide accurate info, your withdrawal won’t be delayed.
Games and Software
Don’t let the mellow atmosphere and the idea of sipping tropical cocktails let you think that the entertainment will be laid back. If you want a relatively sedate experience, it’s up to you because you set your own pace, but for those wanting some energy and the thrill of adrenaline, there are lots of games of chance that’ll deliver exactly that.
I spoke about the game choices at the start of this review, and to re-cap: You can choose between the best of the best from Saucify Gaming and Rival Powered. If you’re a slots fan, you’re spoilt for choice with video slots, classic slots and (hooray!) progressive jackpot slots. Those that prefer table games can sit down and enjoy Blackjack, Roulette, Punto Banco and Poker. Other game choices include Keno and Scratch Cards.
The manner in which this casino displays their games is beautiful. They clearly have a very accomplished creative team and this is evident in the way all visuals are presented – and this includes their emails. Another tip: If you’ve signed up but don’t get their emails, check your Spam / Junk Mail folders and add them to your safe-senders list. Believe me – you get the best news and deals this way and it’s absolutely worth it. Why not get the best they can offer? That is, after all, the reason one signs up at an online casino.
A very big plus is the fanfare with which they do new game releases – and it’s not just one at a time. They supersize it. In 4 weeks they released a total of 28 new slots – a mixture of Saucify and Rival games.
Both Saucify and Rival software are solid and reliable vendors and I’ve got inside info that they will be adding more new games to their already impressive list monthly, so whenever you join them, you will be met with masses of free money giveaways and new choices on a daily basis.
You have the option to play free slots with what they term “practice” money. You top up your account and play – but caution: you obviously can take the winnings, which is why I’m not a big fan of free play. The only time it’s beneficial, is if you’re a novice and need to get your bearings before you deposit, and I understand that to a certain degree.
With so many casino games to choose from, no-one has the time to play them all, and therefore game reviews are paramount. I’m not going to launch into that, but I do want to give you a quick top 5 slots countdown. These are the games I most enjoyed at RoadHouse Reels: #05: Siren’s Serenade (Saucify); #04: Wild Berry (Saucify); #03: Golden Gorilla (Rival); #02: Tails of New York (Saucify) and at #01: Vintage Vegas (Rival).
I was so impressed. Their staff is polite, knowledgeable and very friendly, and they’ll astound you with their speedy efficiency! Oh, and by the way, if you’ve got a sticky query, they’ll have just the right solution. They gave me excellent advice, recommended games based on my specific requests and shared games that are “hot or not”.
I really never once fretted about going on live chat and having to engage someone. Their personnel are a pleasure to deal with.
You can contact them any way that suits you, but I found Live Chat to be the most convenient. Maybe it’s just me, but I like the fact that I can get Support chatting to me whilst the casino is open.
You can get in touch via:
- Toll-Free Number: 1800 253 5048
- Email: [email protected]
- Live Chat
Support does not begin and end with Staff that is available 24/7 (although it’s absolutely necessary). I investigated the interface of their site under this heading as well, because that’s the primary source of support for the player, not so?
I’m thoroughly charmed and impressed. Easy to navigate, super simple to follow and gorgeous to look at. Also, the fact that they KNOW you as an individual when you log in is such a massive benefit. My top 3 games where listed where I could find them easily – and they do NOT obscure other game choices. I got special notifications from the bell and, yes, a magnificent gift for my Birthday – even though I hadn’t been with them for longer than 2 weeks when I celebrated the day I was born.
That is what I understand to be SUPPORT.
Since I played at RoadHouse Reels on my desktop as well as via mobile when I was travelling, I am completely confident in recommending them. Taking into account that people have different tastes, and that this online casino happened to mirror my love for the nostalgic, I can understand that it may come across that I’m biased – but hey, the fact that you get so many bonuses (did you read how much I got right off the bat?), must be an indication that it can work for anyone. As lovers of online gambling, we ultimately want the same things: bigger bang for your buck and the chance to win. If that’s your thing, then this is an online casino you should try out. What have you got to lose that you would not have spent anywhere else? Expand your horizons…
