Partnered with the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey and owned by the almighty GVC Holdings, PartyCasino has been a regulated entity since November of 2013. However, it took all the way until March 2018 for them to get their own standalone site.
Now, licensed and regulated as a sole website under the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, PartyCasino is doing everything they can—starting with a catchy name—to draw some attention to themselves in the ever-expanding field that is online gambling.
We looked into PartyCasino to see if what their live casino games had to offer were up to snuff with their competitors. Here are our findings.
|Super catchy name||Technical side could use a bit of work|
|Great ownership and partnerships|
|24/7 customer support|
Although they’ve been around since March 2018, PartyCasino isn’t one of the premiere spots just yet in Atlantic City. However, under the ownership of GVC Holdings, we should see stark improvements to PartyCasino. This is nothing major to be concerned about in the long run. Perhaps it was just the sessions we played, but over time, this is not an issue.
PartyCasino offers a 100 percent match on deposits up to $500, spread across three different ones. These are broken down into $200, $150, and another $150. To acquire this, simply use the promo code “WELCOMEBONUS” when signing up and make each deposit a minimum of $10.
In order to have access to the bonus funds, you must wager 35x through. Meaning, if you deposit $50, you will get matched $50, making it $100. From here, you must wager $3,500 in order to have access to the bonus funds.
We’ll admit this is a bit on the higher end, but being broken up into three separate deposits is something we do like, as it doesn’t force players to necessarily feel like they need to deposit the entire amount up front, and can rather conserve some money if they wish.
With a similar registration process as BetMGM and Borgata, PartyCasino is broken up into four steps. Here, you will be asked to give information such your email, creating a password, your name, gender, date of birth, address, city, state, zip code, mobile contact information, the bonus code and agree to their terms of service.
That may sound like a lengthy list, but we managed to get through this process in just a few minutes, so it really isn’t a big deal.
You can withdraw using all of the same methods listed above, with the exception of credit/debit cards, online bill bay and PayNearMe. The length of time on these wasn’t clear, but in the test run we did, we were actually impressed with the amount of time we got our money back, so this is nothing to worry about.

On desktop, the interface is relatively vanilla, but personally, I’m a fan of minimalist styles. It makes everything much easier to comprehend and navigate and I’m not afraid I’ll overlook anything. With the product being on desktop, iOS and Android, Party Casino has hit all the major markets.
On their desktop version, below the login and signup buttons, you will find clickable options to take you to the main page of the casino, their offers, their cash back program and reasons why you should play at PartyCasino. Below that, there are buttons for the different games they offer as well as a search bar if you have a particular title in mind. Going further down the page you’ll find the games all in order there as well, starting with their featured content.
For mobile users, no need to worry—the mobile app version is laid out very similarly.
On both desktop and mobile, navigating the site we did not run into any technical problems other than games taking a little bit longer to load (as mentioned above), but this is nothing, again, we are concerned with.
Displaying only female hosts for their games, Party Casino offers four different titles: Blackjack and Unlimited Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat.
We were greeted by an exceedingly kind host who made us feel right at home, with a quality picture from both desktop and mobile. The game did take a bit of time to load, but other than that, we had a wonderful experience using PartyCasino’s live games.
The games have quite the hours of operation, too:
Like a lot of online live casinos, knowing the exact betting limits on games is hard to find and nail down as they vary so widely from game to game. Among their four titles, Blackjack is bound to have a different betting limit range from Baccarat and Roulette, and so on. While they may not have a VIP Program, Party Casino does offer a Cash Back program, which we’ll cover in the VIP Program section.
Again, this may not exactly be a VIP Program, but the Cashback system is a continuous rewards system for players. Here are the games that are part of the program and the percentage of cashback you will receive, whether you win or lose games:
PartyCasino offers 24/7 customer support. At the bottom of the page, highlighted in a red/pink tone you’ll find the “Contact Us” button. Here, you will find how to access features such as the FAQ page, an email form, telephone numbers and a live chat. The customer support on PartyCasino is one of the major items for us.
With the green “Responsible Gaming” logo taking up real estate at the top of their page, this is actually one of the more important things you’ll find on all online casinos.
Here, PartyCasino lists out numerous things beyond just a hotline and organizations to reach. Instead, they stress knowing your limits, talking with friends and family, doing research, a list of “symptoms” for those with gambling addiction and they also have session and deposit constraints you may put on yourself.
The extra effort put forth here by PartyCasino is admirable as they clearly want to protect their customers from a gambling problem first and foremost.
Although PartyCasino Live Casino may have some minor things to work out and still need to add PayPal, overall, PartyCasino is a solid live casino that really tries to do what they can in a crowded market as one of the smaller fish to stand out. Give PartyCasino a shot as the games they offer are still some of the best out there and were personally quite enjoyable.
