A good set of bonus offers always serves as the perfect cherry on top of any good gambling site and is the perfect way to welcome new players. Royal Vegas certainly seem like they are out to impress with a whopping $1,200 bonus, alongside a generous loyalty bonus scheme.
However, a promotion is only as good as its terms and conditions. You can have the biggest bonus in the world but if it comes with terms that no user can reasonably reach, then it may as well be worth nothing. A small bonus with good terms is better than a big bonus with bad terms, so careful reviews of the small print are always worthwhile.
100% up to 300€
The $1,200 welcome bonus is actually split into four parts, each offering a 100% bonus up to $300. The bonus amount here is subject to a wagering requirement of 50x before it can be transferred from a bonus balance to a cash balance. This is competitive for the amount of the bonus.
Another important point is that roulette, sic bo, craps, table poker, Casino War and Red Dog will not count towards this requirement. Remember that different games count towards your wagering requirement by varying percentages, with full information on this and other terms and conditions available on the site.
Overall, this is a very high quality welcome bonus. We just wish it was joined by a few other options to create a more rounded promotional experience.
Royal Vegas is a casino only site, meaning it doesn’t have any sportsbooks to worry about taking up precious web space. And it takes full advantage of that extra room, providing a site which is big, bold and easy on the eye. We doubt it will be winning any awards in terms of innovation with its looks, yet looking at its classic but fun style, it’s hard to argue with the results.
The website is bright and breezy with splashes of colour against a clear white backdrop making everything from its options to its games, jackpots and bonuses all easy to pick out. You don’t need to go searching for anything when using Royal Vegas, because everything is crystal clear from the moment you walk through the site’s virtual doors.

Navigation is also easy, as everything is held together by the main toolbar which separates the major parts of the site. None of this is meant to imply that Royal Vegas is lacking in content: far from it. In fact, the way in which it manages its ample content without ever appearing too busy is the ultimate testament to its quality design.
It is also just as impressive performance wise. Everything is handled well from a technical point of view without breaking a sweat. During our use, we never noticed a single ounce of slowdown, even when using the most technically demanding parts of the site. When you combine this with the excellent, easy to use design, you have a betting experience as light and carefree as we can imagine. It’s top marks from our Royal Vegas Canada review in this regard.
Royal Vegas certainly is not lacking in terms of payment options, with available methods including Visa credit and debit cards, Visa Electron debit cards, bank transfers, and web wallets from Skrill and Neteller.
Customers can use these methods for both deposit and withdrawal. Meanwhile, Mastercard credit or debit card and Maestro debit card, alongside Trustly Bank Transfer are all available for depositing funds. These are just some examples of what is available, with more international options for players across the globe.
Deposit and withdrawal processing times vary depending on the methods involved. Although, typical withdrawal times include e-Wallets taking 24-48 hours, credit/debit Cards taking between 2-5 days, bank transfers taking between 3-7 days, and cheques taking between 7-28 days, with a pending time of around 24 hours. Fees, of course, also depend on which payment method you are using.
One area where Royal Vegas really excels is with customer service. They boast 24/7 support from their call centre agents. These can be contacted through a variety of different ways, including e mail, WhatsApp and, of course, that all important live chat function.
There are even multiple language options available, so French speakers in Quebec are well catered for. You can get the same great customer service whether you are looking for support in English, Dutch, Spanish, French, Japanese, Portuguese or Norweigan, to give a few examples.
Just as important as options though, are how this support is implemented, and while we can’t speak for everyone, we can say that our experience was nothing but positive. They responded quickly and were informative, friendly and helpful with all their tips and guides.
We’ve also found little negative regarding customer service in our research from other players. This means that, overall, they have an excellent reputation in this regard from us and other Royal Vegas Canada reviews.
Like most things in Royal Vegas, information on licensing and security is easy to find. At the bottom of the page, they clearly state that they are licensed under the Malta Gaming Authority, where they are also registered. This should set your mind at ease that this is a legitimate operation, with no risk of scam or fraud.
Finally, with regards to responsible gaming, Royal Vegas allows you to set deposit limits, have self exclusion periods and offers links to websites that can help with gambling related issues. All in all we’re satisfied that Royal Vegas are doing everything in their power to keep your experience as safe and secure as possible.
Royal Vegas also has an extensive loyalty programme. The basics of this are very simple: whenever you make a cash wager, you’ll receive loyalty points. These loyalty points can then be exchanged for bonus credits that you can use as you please. On top of that, you can unlock further player perks, with different loyalty levels giving you tailored bonuses and competitions.
This is perhaps why the welcome bonus isn’t joined by as many other promotions as we might like. Royal Vegas appears to prefer the more personal approach when it comes to bonuses.
On top of that, getting started is nice and easy, as you’ll receive 2,500 free loyalty points simply for depositing with the site. It’s clear when we look at the loyalty programme that this is intended to be a replacement for a more wide-ranging promotional system. What you think of this is a matter of preference to an extent – so cannot be determined by a Royal Vegas Canada review – but there’s little doubt that the loyalty programme here is a major part of the user experience.
Royal Vegas Casino
The focus of Royal Vegas is its casino. We’ve seen from a design perspective how the site has managed to utilise this focus into an excellent, streamlined product, and we were excited to see if they could deliver with regards to content as well. The initial signs certainly look good. In part thanks to the excellent design, we can clearly see an overview of everything available to us at a glance. This includes slots, table games, video poker, progressive games, variety games and even a dedicated Vegas section for even more variety.
Slots, as is usually the case, make up the majority of the content, with hundreds of options available. Huge names can be found here like Avalon, Thunderstruck and Adventure Palace, just to give a couple of examples. Not only that but you can rest assured of quality across the board, not just because of the extensive auditing Royal Vegas goes through to ensure it is random and fair, but also because Royal Vegas have partnered with what is considered by some to be the finest software developer in the world. That is the legendary Microgaming developer. They don’t make bad games, so you won’t find any here and – with the amount of variety on offer – we’re certain you will discover the perfect slot for your tastes.
Table games don’t scrimp when it comes to variety either. Royal Vegas offer all the classics like keno, roulette and blackjack, while their video poker selection offers a modern twist on a table classic. Here you’ll find a huge variety of poker options, really showing the versatility of a much loved casino icon, like Jacks or Better Poker, Aces & 8s Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, All Aces Poker and many more.
Royal Vegas Winnings and Game Features
One thing you probably noticed while searching through the many titles mentioned is the progessive jackpot, which is temptingly ticking away at the top of the available selections. Well, there’s certainly no shortage of options to put your strategy to the test and try for big money with not just a wide selection of progressives, but some really creative examples too. Part of finding a game that is right for you comes down to personal taste and it’s clear that Royal Vegas are aware of this fact with varied games like King Cashalot, Tunzamunni and Cash Splash progressive.
Speaking of variety, that section goes into the weird and the wonderful with several multi-player, scratch card, bingo and even arcade games to choose from. All of this might not be to your taste but, ultimately, what Royal Vegas is doing is providing so much choice that whatever your casino preferences, you’re unlikely to be left lacking in content.
They round this all up with a very impressive live section worthy of competing with the best of the best sites out there. It’s all live and high quality so you can enjoy everything from various forms of blackjack, baccarat, roulette and more as it happens, with all the excitement of a real-life casino from the comfort of your own home.
Royal Vegas Poker
We’ll also mention poker specifically as, although Royal Vegas does not specialise in it like other sites, a huge effort has clearly been made both in the quality and variety of poker options that are available. You’ll be able to pick from classics like Texas Hold’em, 5-Card Stud and more. You can even find poker options as part of that live casino, proving that Royal Vegas are really going all out.
With betting apps and playing on the go becoming more popular than ever, it’s no surprise the live casino – just like everything else you will find on the casino – is available via their mobile site. Similar to everything else we’ve tried on this site, from a design and technical standpoint, we’ve found it to be near flawless.
With all this in mind, it is fair to say we are extremely impressed by our Royal Vegas Canada review. We suppose one criticism might be that they could utilise more software developers but boasting over 700 games, with a huge amount of variety and at an astonishingly high level of quality, we do find it pretty hard to complain.
In virtually every type of casino gaming, they excel and even go further than you’d expect with a bunch of extra unusual titles showing they can innovate too. This is the only thing that Royal Vegas has to really concentrate on, meaning we know they don’t have to stretch their efforts as far as some other jack-of-all-trades sites do.
When you combine this with all the other things that Royal Vegas does well, you have a truly outstanding casino product. Because of that, our expectations for them are extremely high, and we’re happy to say that they have both met and exceeded what we have hoped for.
Whether Royal Vegas is right for you really comes down to what you are looking for. Specifically, if you are looking for more of an all-rounder gambling site which includes sports with the best odds and virtuals, then you’re going to have to find that elsewhere.
Royal Vegas focuses solely on casino gaming. And while that might sound limited, there’s a huge amount to uncover here, which we’ve discussed at length. But to really appreciate the magnitude of options, check out the site yourself. There’s more than a lifetime’s worth of options here and it’s only looking to get bigger. In addition to that, the options have a huge amount of scope – including some game types, like multiplayer – that you might not have even been aware of before.
The site does have some flaws. More software developers would have increased the variety further, and some serious poker players may prefer a site that focuses more on that side of things. However, even then, the poker selection is very generous, and you’d be astonished by the amount of creativity which can be found via Microgaming’s magic efforts.
Adding a cherry on top of the casino cake is their excellent customer service, wide range of payment options and easy to use and easy on the eye design. Overall, if you are looking for a pure casino experience, there are few better options than this. Top marks from our Royal Vegas Canada review.
