Every now and again you run across an online casino that is just so unique in its presentation that you cannot help but stop and take a look. Red Stag Casino is one such site.
It is similar to other sites in terms of the categories of games it offers. In terms of its presentation, it is somewhat unique though.
Red Stag Casino is an online betting site with a theme clearly aimed at American gamblers. Though the site is neither hosted in the U.S. nor confined to U.S. players, it definitely goes after an American audience with a theme that is a hybrid mix of Hollywood's depiction of the Old West and the modern hunting culture. The casino's logo demonstrates this quite well. It features a black shield and deer antlers in red, mimicking the trophy a hunter might hang on the wall.
Why not check out the available promotions and learn more about the casino below.
Red Stag Casino developers kept both design and navigation crisp and clean. Visiting the homepage presents the main menu at the top along with a series of banner advertisements touting some of the site's current bonuses. There are two prominent buttons attached to the banner: one is for downloading the Windows-based software while the other allows you to play instantly with no download required.
Under the banner is a news feed showing information about recent winners. Interestingly enough, this isn't a scrolling news feed. It actually simulates the spinning reels on a slot machine. Next to the recent winners is a running total of the casino's progressive jackpot. Keep that in mind because it is important later.
Finally, the homepage offers a selection of games currently being featured on the site in a thumbnail grid below the banner area. Just click one of the thumbnails to begin play. At the very top of page are three links: 'live chat', 'support', and 'home'. These are self-explanatory.
Red Stag casino games
Red Stag Casino's game selection is adequate for the average player. They have a ton of great games that should meet any player's tastes. They are divided into four categories, as explained below.
1. Slot games
Slot games are where most online betting sites begin. In Red Stag Casino's case, they have more than 100 different games to choose from. Play titles like Triple Gold, Wheel of Chance, Lucky Irish, and Fairies of the Forest. Take a few minutes to browse their inventory and you will quickly discover that many of these games are similar to other titles from big-name publishers.
The slot games here are divided into six distinct categories:
When you first navigate to the slots page, you will see all the games listed on a single page. Use the sub-menu at the top of the list to sort by category. This will make it easier for you to find the kind of game you are looking for. To play, just hover over the thumbnail of your chosen game and click the 'Play Now' button. If you're using a mobile device, just tap the thumbnail.
One last note about the slot games at Red Stag Casino: all of them are linked to a sizable progressive jackpot. If you are a big fan of progressive games, this online betting site may be just what you're looking for.
2. Table games
The number of table games at Red Stag Casino is considerably smaller than the slots. Nonetheless, their table game selection includes eight versions of blackjack and two versions of roulette. The roulette games are American and European roulette.
Like other online casinos, Red Stag Casino presents these table games as computer simulations. You are playing against the casino software just as you would be if playing slots. These are not live games.
3. Video Poker
If you are a video poker fan, playing video poker online is something you really need to try. Playing poker against other people means pitting your knowledge, skill, and bluffing abilities against others who may or may not be better than you. When you are playing video poker though, it is just you against the software. Everything changes.
Red Stag Casino's video poker selection includes nearly two dozen games. You may be familiar with games like Tens or Better, Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, and Jacks or Better.
4. Specialty games
Although not every online casino offers specialty games, the practice is catching on. Red Stag Casino's specialty games inventory now includes five different games - like Keno and Bingo Bucks. These games are a great option for players who need a break from slots and table games. Hopefully, Red Stag Casino will bring a few more specialty games on board in the near future.
Bonuses and promotions
Red Stag Casino's 11 bonus promotions give you even more reasons to play here. As usual, the bonuses start with three in the welcome bonus category. The first welcome bonus offers up to $2,500 plus 500 free spins. The second is a 25% matching bonus good for up to seven deposits. Third is a bonus aimed at mobile players.
The remaining bonuses on offer are as follows:
You will notice that the last four bonuses on the list are only good on certain days of the week. Each one offers a free cash bonus based on a number of criteria the player must meet. As for the VIP bonus, you have to be a member of the casino's VIP club to qualify.
The VIP club is an invitation-only club. However, you have to request membership by sending the casino an e-mail. It is a six-level club, with each level named after a particular drink. For example, the first level is known as the Beer Club. Each club level comes with its own separate rewards that increase in value as you make your way up the levels. You have to be a regular player to do this.
Red Stag Casino Tournaments
Clicking on the 'Tournaments' link will direct your browser to a separate page explaining tournament play. In an online casino setting, a tournament is a set-up whereby numerous players all playing the same game compete against one another to see who can accumulate the most points over a specific amount of time.
In Red Stag Casino's case, players actually wager a certain amount to get in on the action. The winner gets the entire pot less an amount taken by the casino as their fee. For blackjack fans there's good news - blackjack tournaments are available to win the pot.
You can play Red Stag Casino games using either your computer or mobile device. But there are a few catches. First, they only offer Windows-based software for download. If downloading and installing third-party software is your thing, you have to have a Windows computer to do it. Otherwise, play through your browser.
As for mobile devices, play is also limited to the browser. There is no app to download for either iOS or Android. This shouldn't be a problem as long as your mobile browser supports the Flash plugin or an open-source alternative.
Your banking options in Red Stag Casino are fairly extensive. The casino currently offers six different options for deposits, as follows:
Note that each of your deposit options includes both minimum and maximum amounts. The lowest minimum is the PaySafe card at just $1 while the highest maximum is Sofort's $5,000. Also note that Red Stag Casino does not charge any fees on deposits. In terms of withdrawals, you have five options:
There is no charge for withdrawals using Skrill, NETeller, or Bitcoin. Paper checks incur a $30 charge while wire transfers cost $60. Each withdrawal option also has minimum and maximum amounts. The lowest minimum is $100 via bitcoin; the maximum withdrawal of $2,500 per week is available through both bitcoin and wire transfers.
Red Stag Casino is a more-than-adequate online betting site for people who enjoy slot machines and table games. However, the total number of games here is not as great as many of their competitors. They do not offer any live games or free play either.
Support is available 24/7 via online chat, e-mail, and telephone. There is no support ticket system. However, the three means of support they do offer should be sufficient to address most needs.
