Avatar’s approach to have a multi-user/interaction approach is fun. I believe in the future more and more casinos will be going towards this approach trying to emulate real casinos as closely as possible. Their game odds, however, need a little improving. I’m most disapointed in the fact they round down all fractional winnings. With game odds already being in the houses favor, this only gives the house more of an advantage. So overall I give Avatar Casino a rating of 4 chips, mostly for their creativity and uniqueness in the multi-player approach. I’d like to see Avatar offer a greater selection of games as well.
Avatar has taken an approach where you can interact with other players also online at Avatar Casino. You are able to not only chat with them online like other sites have, but you can also play games such as Blackjack and Poker at the same time with them. They also offer private rooms if you don’t want to.
Avatar Casino offers options to view their page in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portugese, and Chinese. Avatar lists their game rules on their web site, but could go into a little more descriptive detail on their Blackjack and other specific gaming rules. They do have a support link with their customer e-mail address and phone number.
Avatar Casino is currently offering $20 in free chips if you open a new account. I couldn’t find specific information online as to what types of deposite options they have. They appear to take the standard credit cards, but I’m not sure about other options such as money wires, etc. I also couldn’t find listed if they offer any type of players club or not to earn free chips with extended play.
Avatar’s download Keluaran Hk package is around 10 Megs. You first download a small 90k icon, then once you execute that icon, the casino boots up and you complete the download. The first time you run this, you are still able to enter the casino areas while the download completes.
As mentioned in the overview, Avatar offers the chance to chat and interact with others who are gambling at their site. When you first register with the casino, you pick the sex of your character, and also have different options to pick as far as color and style of your wardrobe. You then are able to walk this character around the lobby and into different game rooms. When you walk into the game rooms, you can walk your character into a chair and start playing with other players.
They offer Roulette, Caribbean Poker, Slot Machines, Blackjack, and Net Poker(5 card draw against real people) which isn’t available in play money mode. I’ll go into more detail on each game below.
Winning Worlds Casino Review
Like their sister sites Goldrush and King Tut’s Casino, Winning Worlds is very well done professionally, and their game odds are some of the best in the business. Winning Worlds offers a smaller selection of games compared to their sister sites. I gave Winning Worlds a rating of 4.25 chips. The game odds are identical to their sister sites, but they could add some more Video Poker machines and maybe some more table games.
Winning Worlds Casino and Sportsbook, based in Costa Rica offers both online casino and sportsbook services. For the purposes of this review, I have only reviewed the casino portion of their website. Winning Worlds is owned by the same group which also owns Goldrush Online Casino and King Tut’s Casino, so the reviews are similar. They have tried to give you the feel that you’re on some type of space station casino. As a sci-fi fan, I like this. I was playing in fun mode, not for real money, but you are connected to the server in this mode.
They have a lot of nice links to subjects such as “what’s new”, “how it works”, “customer care” etc. A lot of sites need to expand their web pages to give as much info to potential customers as they can. New users always have lots of initial questions as to the general runnings of a new online casino they want to try. I’m glad that Winning Worlds has done a good job in this respect. Customer service phone numbers and e-mail addresses are conveniently spotted on several of their pages.
Winning Worlds is currently offering new members $35 in bonus chip if they open a new account to play for real money. (3/28/00). They are also offering $25 in free chips if you refer a friend to their site who also opens an account with a minimum deposite of $50. Winning Worlds offers deposite options of Visa, Master Card, check, and money wire. Winning Worlds also offers an Astronaut’s Elite Club. This is like their sister sites where you get a point for every $25 you wager, and those add up for free chips, prizes, and other bonuses.
The gaming software for Winning Worlds is from MicroGaming Systems, and is the same as Winning Worlds sister sites: Goldrush Online and King Tut’s Casino. Download size is 2.9 Megs. They only offer 10 games, unlike their sister sites which offer 20. But they are still done very well, and have the nice touches giving you the space station feel. Between the excellent graphics and decent payouts the games provides, I got a feel that I was at a very reputable online casino. There’s a few games I wish would play faster, but I usually prefer a very quick interface.
The 10 games they offer are 2 versions of Blackjack, 5 Slot Machines, Craps, Roulette, and a Jacks or Better Video Poker machine. I’ll go into more detail on each game below.
