The online casino reviews below represent a few of the top casino brands and are my own opinions based on playing at online casinos since 2004, so please bear in mind that things change.Â The US-focused casinos use the RTG platform while the others use Microgaming – to understand the differences from a slot player’s perspective, I have written an article comparing RTG slots to Microgaming slots so you can seeÂ the sort of thingÂ you get.
With some US States now starting to licence land-based operations for online play (see my first Betfair New Jersey casino review for an idea of what’s going on) many US residents should find more options opening up going forward including some IGT slots and (eventually!) WMS games too. However some States are outlawing online casinos altogether so it will depend on where you live as to what your options are.
I do take a regular peekÂ at all of the online casinos below to check I’m not so far out of date I look like an 80’s reject, but obviously things like support and cashout times can vary and different reviewers have different opinions. Don’t forget at any online casino you will eventually be asked for ID (photo + utility bill). Anyway, here you go:
Does not accept players from the USA anymore I’m afraid.Â Actually its more than just a casino – there’s a sportsbook and poker room too. All 3 share the banking backend and you can transfer funds around. It’s run on RTG softwareÂ (see a typical RTGÂ slot review here) with a Flash Casino as an option. Some of the slots are decent and I do play there still but it may be an acquired taste for some players. Good company though and safe and reputable.
Does not accept players from the USA.Â Pretty well known online casino quite honestly, especially in the USA back in the days when US players were accepted by online casinos like Jackpot City: sadly no more. Microgaming + lots of games and also has the slot tournaments module which is fun – lots of freerolls. Promotions came through quite often although I think it helps if you have been there a little while and on the VIP ladder. Support used to be very slow – lucky to get an answer same day – but I’ve heard it’s improved a bit. Very safe and secure casino and unlike many, processes cashouts at weekends too. Normally sent my money back within 24hrs.

Does not accept players from the USA. Actually, the casino is run by the same people that run Jackpot City so see the review above for the lowdown.Â Lucky Nugget doesn’t have slot tournaments, but it does have better VIP promotions – as long as you are prepared to hang around and get “known”.

Club USA Casino
Does accept USA Players but is unregulated. Club USA Casino is an “RTG” casino (that’s the software!) and has different games to those above. Very good on video poker options I found and I love the “Real Series Slots” – all free-spin bonus slots and varying from very streaky to quite streaky…but they all carry “random” jackpots between Â£1,000 and $20,000 and I was lucky enough to hit 3 🙂 Very fast on cashouts tooÂ and generally around 12 hours – 24 absolute max – although there is a $3k a week cashout limit until you are a “known” player. Many, many promotions of varying quality but enough to keep you busy most days! Good reputation among players and other reviewers too if you want opinions.
The same company also run Manhattan Slots casino which is essentially the same online casino as Club USA but with different promotions. You can read my Manhattan Slots Casino review for more information. Additionally, for a different set of games, their “Buzzluck” brand operates Nuworks software but in my opinion the games aren’t as good as RTG’s although very similar.
