Our VegasPlus Review 2020
VegasPlus Canada Review - Scam or Legit? GamblingGuy Tests 2020
VegasPlus is a relatively young online gaming provider that promises players a true Las Vegas experience. It offers jackpots, slots, table games and live casino experiences – as well as some attractive introductory offers and a tiered VIP programme offering plenty of perks for regular players. The operator is licensed and regulated in Curacao, meaning you can be sure everything is legit, but it does have its shortcomings in the customer service department.
In this VegasPlus review Canada, we’ll examine the operator’s games, bonuses, usability and more to give you our verdict on whether VegasPlus lives up to its glitzy name.
VegasPlus: Pros & Cons
- Impressive, high-quality game selection
- Attractive introductory offer for Canadian players
- Tiered VIP programme offering extra perks
- Fast cash-out times and good compatibility with Canadian payment providers
- Limited customer support and high wagering requirements on bonus funds
No good gaming site would be worth its salt without an attractive introductory bonus to lure in newcomers. At the time of writing, VegasPlus casino is offering a 3-in-one Welcome Package that grants first-time players 100% in bonus funds up to CAD$250 on their first deposit, followed by 50% up to CAD$500 on their second deposit. On top of this, new players also get 50 free spins, which will be granted in increments of 5 for their first 5 days of gaming after registering.
Our VegasPlus review Canada can reveal that there are also some great promotions available to recurring customers and VIPs, including regular free spins on brand new games for anyone who ranks as “VIP Chrome” or higher. We will explore the VIP scheme in detail later in this review. Players also get a free bonus on every deposit they make in-play using the site’s “Quick deposit” box.
At the time of writing this VegasPlus review Canada, the operator’s website is clearly laid out and very easy to navigate. The glitzy homepage features a rotating banner advertising the latest VegasPlus betting bonuses and free spins, while “Top Games” are automatically listed in a large, customizable window below. Players can filter games by jackpots, slots, table games and more all on the homepage without having to juggle multiple tabs, and almost every game has a “Demo” option available for potential new players who want to try before they buy.
VegasPlus is operated by Logia N.V. – the same Curacao-licensed company behind Canada’s Unique Casino, which means that games load up lightning-fast and are often powered by leading game developers like BetSoft or Evolution Gaming. We tried out 9 Lions and Dragon Pearls on multiple devices and found that compatibility was good, despite the absence of a VegasPlus app.
Similarly to Unique Casino and other online gaming sites operated by Logia N.V., VegasPlus offers more than 4 times as many payment methods for deposits as it does for withdrawals – which we think some players will find frustrating. Gamers making a VegasPlus deposit can use Mastercard/Visa, KwickGo, PassNgo, Interac, paysafecard, Neteller, CASHlib, Secure Vouchers by Visa, Neosurf, ecoPayz, bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum. However, our VegasPlus review Canada found that withdrawals can only be made using Wire Transfer, Mastercard/Visa or Neteller.
On the upside, the standard VegasPlus withdrawal time is up to 24 hours, which is pretty fast by industry standards. The entry-level minimum withdrawal amount is CAD$100 and deposit limits are consistent across all payment providers too, ranging from CAD$10 to CAD$1,000 depending on your VIP ranking. We’d recommend sticking to Mastercard/Visa or Neteller so that you can make deposits and withdrawals using the same card or account.
At the time of writing this VegasPlus review Canada, the operator’s customer support team can be contacted either by live online chat, phone or email – but none of these services appear to be available 24/7. The live chat function is available daily from 08:00 to 01:59 CET, which could prove inconvenient for Canadian customers. Similarly, the email support team can be reached 7 days a week, but not 24 hours a day, which means customers this side of the Atlantic might find themselves waiting around a good while for a response.
As far as we can see, support is only available in English too, which might be an issue for French Canadians. Furthermore, there is no indication that hard-playing VIPs will receive better access to customer support. On the upside, the live chat seemed quick and courteous during the tests we carried out during this VegasPlus review Canada.
As we briefly mentioned earlier on in our VegasPlus Review Canada, the operator is owned by Play Logia N.V. – a respected organization in the online gaming community that manages several other operators. Due to this, you can rest assured that the site is 100% legit and not a VegasPlus scam, as Play Logia N.V. is licensed by the Curacao Gaming Authority.
Similarly, there’s no need to worry about the risk of VegasPlus fraud either, as the site has state-of-the-art encryption in place governing all payments and data transferred over the site. 256-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology is used to encrypt all credit card details and sensitive information, and the site also has strict ID verification measures in place to protect minors from online gaming. Our VegasPlus review Canada found that players are actually barred from making any withdrawals at all until VegasPlus is 100% satisfied with their ID verification.
Right now, anyone signing up to VegasPlus as a new customer will automatically be fast-tracked onto the site’s loyalty programme and begin enjoying benefits such as regular cashbacks and opportunities to claim weekly raffle tickets. However, the site’s VIP Club system is tiered, and players will need to work their way up the ranks in order to start raking in the best perks.
Entry-level “Bronze” players get access to special VIP promotions, while “Chrome” status opens you up to free spins on new games and a birthday bonus. Earning “Silver” status will also add a VIP Manager, while “Gold” players get higher deposit limits. Meanwhile, top-tier “Platinum”, “Diamond” and “Red Diamond” players get higher withdrawal limits too, with the latter also enjoying the maximum deposit limit of CAD$1,000 that we briefly mentioned earlier on in this VegasPlus review Canada. No VIP events are advertised at the time of writing.
Time for our VegasPlus review Canada to take a closer look at the site’s casino games. In this section, we’ll examine the gaming portfolio, live dealer offerings and gaming limits currently available at the time of writing.
Much like Play Logia N.V.’s other two casino sites, Unique Casino and MaChance, VegasPlus offers games powered by an impressive selection of leading software providers. A quick browse through the top games on offer at the time of writing this VegasPlus review Canada reveals that games by Play N Go, Wazdan, Evolution Gaming, YGGDRASIL, Playson and Booming Games are all readily available, but that is not all. The site also offers games from such respected names as BetSoft, Lucky Streak, Pragmatic Play, VivoGaming and Red Tiger – some of which are exclusive to VegasPlus and not available on Unique Casino or MaChance.
It should come as no surprise that an online gaming operator that strives to recreate an authentic Vegas experience has quite an extensive game portfolio. Our VegasPlus review Canada can reveal that the site offers a grand total of 801 games, including popular 3D slots and jackpot favourites like Rise of Olympus, 9 Lions, Dragon Pearls and Legend of Cleopatra – as well as some great poker and table games that we will review in the next section.
We were particularly impressed by the site’s slots selection, which spans an impressive 740 games and makes up the largest chunk of the VegasPlus portfolio. We also liked that many of these great games were adventure or fantasy-themed. Our VegasPlus review Canada tested Back To Venus, Wicked Circus and Stampede at random and found that all games were fast to load and massive fun to play.
No Vegas-inspired online gaming operator would be worth a second look without a decent selection of live casino games, and our VegasPlus review Canada is delighted to reveal that VegasPlus offers an excellent variety of games in this area.
On top of classic roulette, blackjack and baccarat games hosted by live dealers, VegasPlus is also currently advertising a handful of branded and franchise games like Monopoly Live and Deal or No Deal Live. We were also impressed to see that roulette games are available in a multitude of languages – including French for French Canadian customers. However, these alternative language games seem to be limited to roulette only and the blackjack and poker options, in general, are a little lacking when compared to the abundance of roulette and baccarat games available.
Time for our VegasPlus review Canada to talk about limits. At the time of writing, bet limits across casino games are pretty friendly across the board, starting at just CAD$1 on most games, with maximum bets varying from game to game. If you’re playing with bonus funds, however, VegasPlus has unusually high x120 wagering requirements, which you’ll need to abide by in order to get the most out of your bonus and avoid falling foul of the rules and losing your bonus balance altogether.
Generally speaking, players will also need to deal with some pretty tight limits on deposits and withdrawals too, depending on their VIP ranking, with the minimum withdrawal amount, for example, set at CAD$100 for entry-level players. As we briefly mentioned earlier in this VegasPlus review Canada, higher deposit and withdrawal limits are only available to those who have attained Gold or Platinum VIP status respectively, or above.
So, what does our VegasPlus review Canada make of the site’s casino offerings? Well, we think that game variety and software quality are top-notch, and we love the fact that Play Logia N.V. are offering some games on VegasPlus that aren’t, at the time of writing, available across some of their other sites. However, with abnormally high wagering requirements and some frustrating limits for entry-level players, you might want to shop around a bit before deciding whether VegasPlus is the online casino for you.
VegasPlus Sports Betting
If you’ve read any other VegasPlus reviews before this one, you’ll probably already be aware that this operator does not offer sports betting or sportsbook odds to gamers. As a casino-oriented online gaming site, this perhaps comes as no surprise, but we’d still like to see VegasPlus diversify in the years ahead.

Next up, let’s see how VegasPlus shapes up when it comes to poker games. This section of our VegasPlus review Canada will explore the software and game types currently available, as well as limits, tournaments and our general thoughts on the site’s poker offering.
Just as with the site’s casino games, our VegasPlus review Canada found that the poker games currently on offer come from an impressive range of software providers that are highly respected in the online gaming community. Our tests can reveal that VegasPlus is currently offering table games predominantly from the likes of BetSoft and Playson, as well as live dealer games from Vivo Gaming, Lucky Streak and Evolution Gaming.
We found that live dealer games were sometimes a little slower loading up than slots and more traditional online games, and that most poker offerings were set up more for online play rather than for downloading. Nevertheless, we were generally impressed with the software we tested.
With 29 table games and 29 live casino offerings available at the time of writing this VegasPlus review Canada, we think that VegasPlus ranks highly when compared to competitors in terms of game selection and diversity. Classics like Caribbean Poker, European Blackjack and Joker Poker are all readily available, as well as some more niche poker games like Pai Gow Poker. There’s also a satisfactory selection of Live Blackjack options available, including a Turkish variant, but no French version and much less choice than you might find elsewhere as far as live poker games are concerned.
At the time of writing this VegasPlus review Canada, the operator was not offering or advertising any poker tournaments or related events. Whether this will change in the near future remains to be seen.
Just like the site’s casino games, VegasPlus free spins, jackpots and other enticing games, limits on poker games seem to be inviting, with minimum deposits of CAD$10 or even CAD$1 common across many games. However, as our VegasPlus review Canada pointed out earlier on, you will need to follow those x120 wagering requirements when playing any bonus funds across poker and other table games on the site. It’s also worth noting that different games will often weight differently towards your overall wagering requirements. We recommend reading the T&Cs carefully before trying out each game.
In all, we were generally quite impressed with the operator’s poker and table game offerings when writing this VegasPlus review Canada. However, we think it’s only fair to say that other providers currently operating in Canada do offer a greater selection of poker games, as well as more lenient wagering requirements on bonus funds. To conclude this section, we think that VegasPlus is definitely worth considering for poker, but that the site’s slots and jackpot games come across much more clearly as its key selling point.
So, what’s the final verdict of our VegasPlus review Canada? In all, we really like the glitzy Vegas theming, superb game selection and attractive new customer bonuses this provider currently has up for grabs. We also think that the loyalty programme offered by VegasPlus currently ranks among the best we have seen, with free spins on new games, tons of promotions and generous higher limits available to regular players.
Perhaps the only downsides of the site are its limited customer support hours and those high x120 wagering requirements on bonuses. In all, however, we would definitely recommend trying VegasPlus out!
