The name calls images of monarchy to mind, but the atmosphere is more that of a standard "luxury" property. Well, that's fine. Strong themes can be fun, but the gaming action and value to the player are much more important.
So how does Regal Wins hold up in the areas that really matter to UK online casino players? We'll go over all the pertinent details in today's post.
Available Games and Software
The collection of over 850 games at Regal Wins sports the usual division between slots, video poker, table games and live dealer games and scratchers. The site sports a very nice navigation system that lets you organize games by all sorts of variables such as bonus features, paylines, themes and publisher.
The slots number over 750 in total. With 65 of these having progressive jackpots, Regal Wins is unusually well-supplied for those looking to hit a life-changing win in just one spin. There are about 50 exclusive slots here, too, with nine exclusive progressives.
The table game selection is standard, about 45 games in total. There are only four types of video poker, so this isn't the best place if you're aspiring to be the next Bob Dancer. It's definitely better for blackjack and roulette, with quite a few different varieties. Casino Stud Poker also offers a progressive side bet.
The live dealer casino here is pretty strong. There are 40 games in total. Betting limits range from as little as £0.20 to as much as £75,000 a spin. One highlight here is the NetEnt live roulette table that offers "la partage" rules, which is the most favourable situation for the player. They also feature some of the more off-beat live games from Evolution such as Lightning Dice, which is a bit like pachinko and has the feeling of a game show.
Finally, should the mood strike you, there are over 40 scratchers including Deal or No Deal and Wheel of Fortune: Winning Words.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Visa, MasterCard / Maestro, PayPal, Paysafecard and Neteller can all be used to make deposits at Regal Wins Casino. Note that the minimum deposit varies by payment method, however: it's £10 for the credit cards and Paysafecard and £20 for the e-wallet services.
Same methods for withdrawal, minus Paysafecard and MasterCard credit (MasterCard debit is fine). The minimum withdrawal for all is £10.
Note that there must be some deposit or withdrawal activity on each saved card in your account at least once every 120 days, or the card will be removed from your profile and will have to be added again.
Safety and Security
Regal Wins Casino is based in Alderney and is thus regulated by both the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. The casino also makes use of eCogra for dispute resolution and game fairness testing, which is definitely a plus.
Bonuses and Player's Club
The "welcome bonus" is a virtual requirement for UK online casinos at this point, and Regal Wins has a fairly standard offer spread out across your first three deposits. In all cases, a minimum deposit of £10 gets you a matching bonus. The matched percentage and maximum varies with each deposit, however.
- First deposit - 100% match to a maximum of £200
- Second deposit - 40% match to a maximum of £200
- Third deposit - 50% match to a maximum of £100
Note that in all cases, there is a winnings cap of £1,000 on each bonus. There is also a wagering requirement of 25x, it must be met at slots, and certain slots are excluded - see the site's "promotions" page for the current list.
There are periodic site-wide daily and weekly offers that are available regardless of your account level, and there are also periodic "Accumulator" contests where players vie to climb a leaderboard and win bonus funds that have only a 1x wagering requirement attached to them.
There is a loyalty club as well. Your play earns points that can be converted to cash at a rate of 1,000 points for £1. For each £1 you wager at Regal Wins you'll receive 3 loyalty points at most slots, 2 loyalty points at the scratchers, and 1 point at all of the other games.
There is no tier program at this time, but there is an invitation-only VIP programme called the Regal VIP Club. The site is not overly specific about the benefits, but it appears to be comparable to the more lavish programmes of competing UK online casinos: a personal account manager, added cash back, reduced wagering requirements, gifts of free getaways and special events are all mentioned.
Is Regal Wins Casino Worth It?
The welcome bonus here isn't tremendous, but some of the ongoing promotions are pretty good. Combine that with a very nicely designed and easy-to-navigate site (high marks for that), a very solid slot selection and some favourable table games and you have a casino that is definitely worth looking over.
