Dream Vegas is a relatively new addition to the White Hat Gaming range of real money online casinos. While it only launched in 2018, Dream Vegas has already built up a reputation for great software, an impressive range of developers, and good bonuses.
If you dream about Las Vegas while playing your favourite table games and slots, Dream Vegas might be the site for you. Let's head to Sin City to explore this new online casino.
|Hundreds of top slots and over 35 progressives||Quick turnaround on welcome bonus spins|
|VIPs from other casinos get special rewards||Loyalty program favours high-stakes players|
|100% welcome bonus plus bonus spins|
New sign-ups to Dream Vegas casino can claim a pretty standard welcome bonus upon registering. The initial deposit match bonus is worth 100% up to NZ$400, followed by a 40% match up to NZ$3,000 on the 2nd load-up.
That's a massive jump in our opinion but not as big as the 3rd deposit match of 60% up to NZ$1,500. In addition, the wagering requirement is a hefty 35x the bonus amount. However, depositors also earn 50, 30 and 40 bonus spins respectively to play on any NetEnt slot, with the usual exceptions.
Dream Vegas runs a variety of regular promotions and offers. Many are themed towards trips to Las Vegas or big 'Dream Ticket' prize draws. To play, you must deposit and wager at least NZ$20 to receive 1 point. Earn 500 points and you get 1 free ticket into the prize draw.
There are four different levels in the Dream Vegas VIP Club. It doesn't offer much that's new compared to rival casinos' loyalty schemes. However, rewards are tailored specifically to each player based on their stakes and game choice.
Elite players on other casinos can also get a shortcut to Dream Vegas's Salon Privé room upon successful application.
Registering a new account at Dream Vegas just takes a few minutes. It has the same security measures as other White Hat Gaming sites too. But it's what we would expect to find at a good casino with UK and Malta licensing.
To start, you simply have to complete the name, address and date of birth spaces, as well as create a username and password, and choose a valid currency. You can pick from CAD, GBP, EUR, NOK, NZD or SEK.
You will immediately be directed to the Cashier page to make a first deposit and claim your welcome bonus. There is a minimum deposit amount of NZ$20.
As with other White Hat Gaming casinos online, Dream Vegas allows a full range of deposit and withdrawal options for players. There is a minimum deposit amount of NZ$20, which is higher than we want to see. However, there are no upper daily limits on many banking options. Deposits are free from fees.
Dream Vegas operates a pending withdrawal period of 1-2 days. While the site claims that all cash-outs are completed within 5 business days, we found that 3-4 days was more common.
You will also need to cash out to the same card or account you used to make the deposit with. This 'source to source' rule is common at online casinos under the White Hat Gaming banner.
Dream Vegas works across multiple platforms, including desktop and smartphone devices. The desktop client operates through a standard web browser, and there is no need to download software.
However, we did find that having Google Chrome 30+ installed was the best way to experience the site. We also recommend you have Adobe Flash updated in order to handle every game.
The Dream Vegas lobby looks the business, and we particularly liked the animated previews for games and slots. All games are listed via type (slots, roulette, live dealer, etc) and there is a full game providers list to help you to get to your favourite titles fast.
The lobby could do with a better filter, especially as Dream Vegas comes packed with several hundred titles.
Currently, there is no mobile app for Dream Vegas players. That doesn't mean you can't log in via a smartphone or tablet using a browser and play games.
We actually liked the mobile-optimised site at Dream Vegas. You can play over 100 mobile slots for real money and there is even a live dealer selection.
Dream Vegas goes big on software providers to give its players even more choice. There are over 80 different developers supplying slots, table games, live dealer action, and instant win games.
While our team enjoyed seeing the likes of NetEnt and Microgaming rubbing shoulders in the lobby, it was also good to see up and coming providers getting their time in the sun. Small developers like Skillzzgaming and Asylum Labs don't get lost amidst the bigger players.
There are well over 1,000 slots and table games in the Dream Vegas lobby. You can hunt for individual games via the Search box, or filter games by game type or game provider.
We would have liked to have seen min/max stakes displayed in the lobby to save you time when choosing a game to play. There is also a general lack of free-to-play games available.
Slots players are treated well at Dream Vegas. There are well over 700 slots, ranging from classic games like NetEnt's Starburst to big-money progressives like Microgaming's Mega Moolah.
New slots from developers like Red Tiger Gaming, Blueprint, and Push Gaming are added to the lobby all the time. You can hunt for fresh titles easily via the 'New Games' tab.
Dream Vegas has around a dozen exciting progressives with a chance of winning a life-changing sum of cash. We liked seeing a range of jackpot games from different developers. It's a sign of a good online casino when it offers games as diverse as NetEnt's Mega Fortune, Microgaming's Mega Moolah, and Blueprint's Genie Jackpots Megaways.
The only downside is that Dream Vegas doesn't appear to run a current jackpot ticker on its homepage, or a list of recent jackpot winners. There is a running jackpot total across the whole site, however, but some specific breakdowns would have been a plus.
Dream Vegas offers the full gamut of blackjack, roulette and video poker games. There are several hundred table games and 'Scratch & Fun' titles which can be played for real money. As with the slots, there is a general lack of free-to-play action at Dream Vegas casino.
You will find 16 roulette games at Dream Vegas, with all the usual variations covered. NetEnt provide the bulk of the games, but Microgaming's European Roulette Gold Series is a welcome addition to any lobby.
All games can be played through a web browser, but make sure you have Flash Player installed to power the older titles.
Blackjack players have a little more choice at Dream Vegas. There are nearly 30 variants, including single deck and classic varieties from NetEnt and Microgaming, and a range of bonus blackjack games from Felt Games like Suit 'Em Up and Blackjack Lucky Lucky. These are fun blackjack variants with lots of side bet action.
Old-school video poker titles like All Aces Poker and Aces and Eights from Microgaming sit alongside newer titles like NetEnt's All American Double Up. Games start at just NZ$0.10 a hand.
Dream Vegas recently added live dealer games to its online lobby. There are 15 games in all supplied by leading developer, Evolution Gaming.
Typical games include live roulette, live blackjack and live Casino Hold'em, as well as branded 'game shows' like Deal or No Deal. Live casino games are broadcast in English.
Alternative table games are a little thin on the ground at Dream Vegas. You can play Let It Ride and DJ Wild Stud Poker, both from ShuffleMaster. There is also a small handful of scratchcard games from 1X2 like Irish Eyes, and Virtual Sports games, also from 1X2.
Dream Vegas has a wide selection of games, and a range of betting to match. Most slots and progressives can be played from as little as NZ$0.01 a spin, but a max bet of NZ$500 on many 5-reel games is commonplace.
Games like NetEnt's American Roulette and Classic Blackjack have games from just NZ$0.10. VIPs are well catered for, however, and can play up to NZ$10,000 a spin on games like NetEnt's Roulette Adv High and NYX's Roulette Master.
Dream Vegas has a selection of progressives that are renowned for paying out big sums. Dream Vegas players have won a string of 5-figure jackpots on games like Microgaming's Mega Moolah and Major Millions.
The RTP is the theoretical Return to Player percentage of an individual game. A slot with an RTP of 96%, for example, will pay out, on average, NZ$96 for every NZ$100 wagered.
Dream Vegas's list of theoretical RTPs can be easily found on the site. This is especially helpful for blackjack players who can discover that most of the single deck blackjack variants pay in the region of 99.83%.
You can enjoy friendly and helpful customer service at Dream Vegas when you need it. We found the 24-hour live chat to be quick and knowledgeable. 24/7 support is also provided by email but there is no phone service and no on-site FAQ for quick reference.
Like all casinos licensed in the UK and Malta, Dream Vegas takes responsible gambling seriously. You can view the site's Responsible Gambling policy via your 'My Account' page. Here, you will also find information on setting deposit limits and self-exclusion.
Daily, weekly and monthly betting limits can be set manually, but they take 24 hours to come into effect. Game Time reminders can be set as low as 1 minute.
You also have the option to take a Time Out from Dream Vegas for one day to six weeks, or self-exclude completely. If you self-exclude from Dream Vegas, you will be kept from playing at every casino under White Hat's license.
Dream Vegas comes from a trusted top online casino brand, and there are certainly enough games to keep players occupied. The lack of mobile apps, regular promotions, and a phone support line are minor gripes but if you just want good gaming, give Dream Vegas a try.VISIT DREAM VEGAS CASINO
