PartyCasino is one of the world's oldest and best-established online casino sites. Although it launched in 1997, PartyCasino has undergone various changes and upgrades during its lifetime. It's now owned and operated by GVC Holdings PLC. GVC won Operator of the Year in the 2018 EGR Awards.
The site received a complete overhaul in 2017 and now offers hundreds of slots and games to players across desktop and mobile platforms. If you're looking for a reputable and historic brand, this is the casino for you.

PartyCasino is running a 100% deposit bonus for new sign-ups. When you make a first deposit your deposit amount will be doubled up to £200, €500 or $500 depending on the country you're located in. Players in Ireland, Canada and New Zealand will also be awarded an extra 120 free spins to use on Starburst.
The minimum deposit is NZ$10 and you'll be excluded if you deposit using Skrill, Neteller, or Entropay.
Free spins have a 10x wagering requirement attached on any wins. There is also a 7-day expiry period on playing through the games.
Regular offers are sent to players when they make a deposit. You will find them in the My Offers section of your account. You can also keep track of any free spins you have, or existing promotions and cashback deals.
Regular promotions include free spins on selected games through the Bet&Win offer. Deposit NZ$10 and you will receive bonus spins with a 35x wagering requirement on any wins.
There is a new and improved Cashback programme running at PartyCasino. You can earn Cashback on all play on the site. Instant Win games offer the best cashback rate of 0.25%, followed by slots (0.1%), blackjack (0.025%), and all other games (0.05%).
PartyCasino runs an invite-only VIP program for its top players. Accounts are regularly reviewed by the site, but you'll have to wait for PartyCasino to contact you. VIPs at PartyCasino can earn benefits like bespoke bonuses, a 24-hour VIP Manager, and invites to exclusive events.
Getting started at PartyCasino is simple. First select your country of residence and preferred currency (CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY, RUB or USD) before entering your email address and username.
As a properly licensed operator, PartyCasino has a verification process for all players. You will need to provide some form of photo ID and a recent utility bill in order to start playing for real money.
The process is pretty smooth at PartyCasino: simply scan in your documents or take photos of your passport and bank statement or utility bill, and send them to the customer support team. You can even do the whole procedure easily via a live chat window.
We found the whole procedure only took a few minutes and we were away playing slots without too many delays.
At registration, you also have the option to immediately set deposit and wagering limits before you play.
PartyCasino has an impressive range of banking options for deposits and withdrawals. Reliable methods like credit and debit cards allow for instant deposits to your account.
You can also use quick banking options like Apple Pay if you're playing on the mobile site. You must use Touch ID, Face ID or the Passcode if using Apple Pay at PartyCasino.
As well as credit and debit cards, you can also make deposits via e-Wallets like Skrill, INSTADEBIT or NETELLER, or make a bank transfer.
Withdrawals can be made to the same card or e-wallet used for a deposit in the last 180 days. If you use a card to deposit with, you will have to scan in the front and back of the card in order to use it to make a withdrawal.
Cash-outs can take up to 5 business days to be processed. PartyCasino may also withhold any withdrawal amounts over NZ$1,000 while security checks are undertaken. We found that having plenty of scanned utility bills and personal ID documents on hand made the whole banking procedure a lot quicker.
The PartyCasino lobby was redesigned in 2017, and the navigation and game access is easier than ever.
You won't need to download software to get started at PartyCasino. However, you will need an up-to-date OS and web browser on your Mac or PC. You will need to run Mac OS X 10.9 or above if you're on a Mac, and Windows 7 or better for an optimal PC performance.
For browsers, we found that having Google Chrome 30+ was a must to run the instant-play games. Firefox 27+ or Internet Explorer 11+ can also be used.
The lobby and account areas have been completely revamped at PartyCasino. Your Account Menu now gives you single-click access to all offers, the Cashier, and the My Cashback promotion.
PartyCasino now has over 600 games and slots to suit all tastes and budgets. Games are easy to access through the lobby, and there are helpful filters to get you to your favourite games fast.
Game screen tabs let you add individual titles to your Favourites list easily. However, there is a general lack of free-play options for many games.
PartyCasino has over 500 of the best slots from the biggest developers. NetEnt and Microgaming are well supported, as are reputable providers like Blueprint Gaming and IGT. Yggdrasil provides some games exclusively to the site, like Time Travel Tigers.
PartyCasino has around a dozen progressives that are provided by Red Tiger Gaming and Win Studios and are exclusive to the site. As such, the jackpot across all these games remains the same. Book of Myths and The Win Genie regularly hits a linked jackpot worth over NZ$1m.
We particularly liked the 'Must Go' section of the lobby. This displays the current big linked progressives that might be taken down at any time. At time of writing, the Must Go slots had jackpots in the high five figures.
Playtech's Gladiator Jackpot has perhaps the highest progressive jackpot, worth NZ$2.7m at time of writing, but Microgaming's record-breaking Mega Moolah pushes it hard. There are also around a dozen slots in this 'Jackpot King' range, all linked and offering top prizes worth nearly a million dollars.
You will find a huge range of table games at PartyCasino with stakes as low as 0.10 a game. There are nearly 30 roulette variants alone, including some that are exclusive to the casino. American Roulette, European Roulette and French Roulette variations are all available, as are some interesting branded games like Luck O' The Roulette from Win Studios.
There is a similar large selection of blackjack games at PartyCasino. NetEnt's familiar Single Hand Blackjack and Hi-Lo Blackjack variants share space with cool branded games like The Terminator: I'll Be Blackjack.
If you enjoy alternative table games, you will also find games like Playtech's Baccarat from 0.10 a hand, Craps, and Hi-Lo. IGT provide half a dozen Game King video poker variants, but you will need an Adobe Flash Player to access the games.
PartyCasino offers a wide range of betting to suit all budgets. Most video slots allow betting from 0.01 a line, but progressives like Skywind's Norse Reel allow bets up to 250.00 per spin.
Blackjack games fare better. You can bet as little as 10p a hand, or as high as NZ$500 on regular casino blackjack games. Live blackjack games like the new Clubhouse Blackjack have maximum bets worth NZ$10,000.
Roulette games can be played as low as 10p a spin, but VIP Roulette, and some live casino roulette variants let you gamble NZ$10,000 a spin. We liked the simplicity of SG Gaming's Original Roulette which has a minimum table stake of NZ$0.20 and a maximum stake of NZ$10,000.
RTPs (Return to Player percentages) are the theoretical payouts made to gamblers over the long term. Every reputable casino should have audited RTPs from external testing bodies. Ideally, test certificates should be displayed on the casino site.
PartyCasino uses iTech Labs for its auditing, and you can easily access current payout lists through the System Fairness tab.
The latest iTech Labs audit (October 2018) showed that PartyCasino paid out RTPs ranging from 78.60% (Raffle Jackpot) to 97.89% (casino poker games). Online slot sites paid out an average of 95.79% over the year.
An award-winning online casino needs award-winning customer support. Luckily, PartyCasino has a selection of customer service options for players. However, in many cases, PartyCasino's comprehensive FAQ had enough information to get our query answered.
You can get email support 24/7, and we found that most queries took 1-2 hours to be answered. You can even use the on-site contact form to drag and drop documents.
There is also a live chat service available during the day, and a toll-free UK phoneline. Charges apply for the international helpline.
Like all reputable casinos, PartyCasino has strict measures in place to protect its players. The player Account menu has a full list of Gambling Controls where you can set deposit limits and time management, or opt to close your account with a few clicks.
PartyCasino also provides a full list of problem gambling organisation contacts like GamStop, GamCare, and Gambling Therapy. There are also links to blocking software webpages like Cyberpatrol and Cybersitter.
It's no surprise that PartyCasino has racked up award after award. It has one of the largest and most varied game selections online and on mobile, as well as download apps for both iOS and Android devices.
The banking options are varied, and the daily deposit limits will appeal to players of all wallets. Give one of the world's best online casinos a try today.VISIT PARTYCASINO
