June 2008 sees the launch of a brand new Microgaming casino called “Red Flush” offering both download and Flash options, the latter of course making it a suitable Apple Mac casino playable from within any web browser. An additional benefit is that the casino accepts USA players from all but 11 States.
The Microgaming “Viper” platform forms the base for the casino which includes over 350 games. For those not familiar with online casinos using MG software that means you’ll find lots of variations of Blackjack, table Poker games, Roulette and various card games popular in land-based casinos. For slots players there is a huge choice of games…there are more in the download version than in the Flash casino it should be noted, but all the main slots appear in both. 5 Reel bonus slots are the order of the day with many “free spins” slots like Thunderstruck, Hitman, Tombraider 1 and 2 plusÂ a stack more (check out the Cashapilla Slot review here for example).
As far as loyalty and promotions go at [red Flush], it’s too early to say how popular or good these will be, but there is a 100% signup bonus available (to a maximum of $100) and the “Red Loyalty Club” which awards points as you play which can be exchanged for cash. The Microgaming Slot Tournaments module is present offering lots of daily freerolls and SnG’s and one would expect exclusive tournaments at some point in the near future.
When it comes to banking (an area that provides US players with many problems), all the major Debit and Credit cards are present along with eWallet services such as neteller, Click2Pay and UseMyWallet (Quicktender) – the latter being especially pertinent to the US market but only garnted on request – and a whole load more. Red Flush has a decent enough “Reverse Pending” time of 12 hours but there is no manual flushing. Not too shabby as it goes.
Time will tell just how good [Red Flush] is, but Microgaming are known for being strict licensors so the signs are good.
