50 Stars Casino Review
50 Stars Casino immediately managed to make us sit up and take notice as it is one of an increasingly rare breed of casino to offer Playtech software at its core without being part of a sports betting site. Even though Playtech probably isn’t as important as a developer in the grand scheme of things as it once was, players are still sure to enjoy a lot of the games that they have to offer and it is always nice to see somewhere a little different to play. This particular one is licensed in Gibraltar so we were already confident in the overall quality and reliability heading into the review, so let’s see whether it manages to hold up well as an overall gaming platform.
The Experience and Gaming Software
The main page at 50 Stars Casino isn’t exactly much to look at, with a drab colour scheme, basic buttons and a stock image being the most notable parts of the experience. In fairness, we were far more interested in the functionality and players are immediately given the choice between downloading the online casino software or playing through the instant play platform. Unlike with many other developers, there are still a few discrepancies at Playtech casinos when it comes to the game selection that is offered online and through the software, but the gap is closing all the time and most of the biggest name games can now be played through your browser.
Anyone that has played at a Playtech casino before will already have a decent grasp of the games on offer as they haven’t really changed much in recent times. There are plenty of jackpot games and dozens of online slots covering branded titles, original action and classic, three-reel games. The table games are solid enough while not necessarily being the best looking out there right now and there is enough video poker on offer to keep most players entertained. Rounding off the game selection is a range of arcade and skill games and we still have a soft spot for these titles as they are a little different to what players might expect at other online casinos.
Account Management and Customer Support
There are far more options on offer at 50 Stars Casino when it comes to deposits than withdrawals, but we cannot imagine all that many players being locked out completely through lack of choice. It would seem that while deposits are welcomed through just about everything imaginable, players will be best off setting up an electronic wallet account with the likes of Skrill or Neteller for their withdrawals as they clearly seem to be favoured at this particular online casino.
The only part of the banking experience to stand out as being worth pointing out to our readers in a negative sense was the $10,000 monthly withdrawal limit. This should be okay for the majority of players, but it is worth bearing in mind that extends not only to regular wins but also to progressive jackpot prizes. So, if you take down the half a million that is usually on offer on the Marvel slots in one fell swoop, you could expect to be waiting a good few years before you actually receive your prize in full. In our personal opinion, with other, less restrictive options out there, we wouldn’t really want to take that risk.
Support is more than adequate and players have a reasonable choice of contact methods with live chat, email, phone and fax support all being offered by the casino. Our test questions were answered quickly and correctly so we cannot fault 50 Stars Casino in this regard.
50 Stars Casino Review in Summary
On the face of it, 50 Stars Casino is a solid online offering that does enough to warrant the attention of Playtech fans. We cannot get over the withdrawal limit affecting progressive jackpots, especially
