There's a cute canine mascot front and center of Red Dog Casino, but is it worth your time playing there? Read our review to find out.
Bonuses are very much de rigueur these days, and new USA online casino players at Casino Red Dog do have a welcome bonus to look forward to. At the time of review, this takes the form of a 235% match deposit bonus, complemented with 50 free spins for Epic Holiday Party. The wagering requirement is 35x, which is pretty good, and the maximum payout is 30x.
The site also offers a Game of the Month regular promo, which is Frog Fortunes at the time of writing. Players can take advantage of a 120% match bonus and 20 free spins on the aforementioned slot game, which comes with higher rates and more free spins the more you deposit. The wagering requirement here is also 35x, but there's no upper limit on withdrawals, which is rather tasty.
Another promo with no withdrawal cap is the 24/7 Bonus. This is also a match deposit bonus, with deposits of $30, $75, and $150 eligible for rates of 120%, 135%, and 160% respectively. As with the above offers, the wagering requirement is 35x.
Red Dog offers a variety of best-rated slots and table games by Real Time Gaming (RTG). US players can access these games on mobile devices such as Android tablets, iPhones, and so on. In addition, there's a handy RTP (return to player) page where you can review the average returns each game offers to try and maximize your chances of finishing in the black. However, it's worth noting the stats here are based on real-world results, so some have, at the time of review, returns exceeding 100% which is more likely to be a statistical blip than real-world edge in the player's favor.
Games can be sorted by category (latest, popular, etc) or searched directly. There are just under a score of video poker options, and over a dozen table games, including baccarat, roulette, craps, and poker (note that a couple of roulette games are hiding in the Specialties category). Blackjack has its own section and eight varieties to play, making the table games offering reasonable rather than good.
Slots are the main draw of online betting establishments and there are hundreds of reels to spin at this site. Enduring RTG classics such as Achilles, Caesar's Empire, and Asgard remain popular, with new releases such as Frog Fortunes and Achilles Deluxe available to play.
Geographical restrictions and player preferences make it important for betting sites to offer a comprehensive selection of payment methods and, in this regard, the site is not fantastic. There's a mere quintet of depositing options accepted at the time of review, including Visa, Mastercard, cryptocurrency Bitcoin, pre-paid voucher Neosurf, and PayID. All have instant depositing times, except Bitcoin which may take up to 15 minutes. The upper and lower depositing limits vary significantly, from just $10 to $250 with Neosurf to $30 and $1,000 for Visa/Mastercard/PayID, and $20 to $2,500 for Bitcoin.
Withdrawal options are even fewer in number, with only credit cards and Bitcoin (from the depositing list) and bank wires available. All come with no fees imposed by the casino, however. Credit cards should take 3-4 business days and have limits of $150 minimum and $2,500 maximum. Bitcoin is a little faster at 1-3 business days and bank wires the slowest at 5 working days, both having the same withdrawal limits as those previously mentioned.
Validation documents will be required prior to making withdrawals, as is standard practice these days. Proof of ID and proof of address will both be necessary.
Licensing information is typically provided at the base of a site's pages but is oddly missing here. It seems that Casino Red Dog is licensed by Curacao although finding this confirmed on the site itself was not possible, which does not inspire confidence. Player information is safeguarded through the usage of 256-Bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.
Should you have a query, or if woe befalls you, customer service can be contacted on a 24/7 basis by telephone, live chat, or e-mail.
There are plenty of slots and match deposit bonuses to enjoy at Red Dog Casino, although the absence of a live casino and no deposit promos is a shame, and the banking options are on the slim side. In addition, the lack of licensing info was unsettling.
