Owned and operated by Roar Partners, PartyCasino has been in the online casino space for close to three decades. After launching in the UK in 1997 as Starluck Casino, the company rebooted in 2006 as PartyCasino, a fully integrated platform.
In 2011, Party Gaming PLC merged with bwin Interactive Entertainment AG, and PartyCasino became one of the top casino brands for GVC Holdings. In 2018, PartyCasino made its way to the US.
Let's dive headfirst into this PartyCasino review. (Spoiler alert: We like what we see.)
|Game library||No demo mode for games|
|Mobile app||Need an account to see the full site|
PartyCasino can be accessed on both desktop and via mobile apps.
Once you arrive at the PartyCasino home page, you will find the setup to be simple and intuitive. It's a fairly generic layout, but everything is proportionate, evenly spaced and easy to identify.
The same can be said for the mobile app. You will easily find different menus, promotional offers and various game titles. The purple and pink color scheme complements the overall vibe of the casino.
Accomplished over the course of three steps, the registration process at PartyCasino will take no more than a few minutes to complete.
To start, you will need to submit your email and create a password.
Then, you'll need to submit some more personal information. This information is needed for multiple reasons. One: casino winnings are taxable income. And two: this information will help protect your account should anyone try to compromise it. Here's what you will need:
The third step requires several more items to match your credentials with your profile in the PartyCasino online database.
After this, you may be asked additional questions such as previous cities/addresses you've lived in. You may also be asked to submit a copy of your driver's license. Again, this is to confirm your identity and ensure all of the data points check out in the system.
After you complete the above steps, PartyCasino will run its geolocation software. This software is used to locate your IP address and confirm you are currently located in a state in which PartyCasino is legal. If you are, you can start playing. If not, you will be unable to make real money wagers.
Remember: if you already have a PartyCasino account, make sure to use that one. If you have two accounts, both could end up getting permanently banned as creating two accounts under one person's name violates PartyCasino's terms of service.
Knowing how to both deposit and access funds is critically important to many prospective casino players. In fact, if a user's preferred method is not offered at an online casino, this can cause them to move on altogether.
With nearly nine different methods to deposit money, PartyCasino gives players plenty of options to reinforce their bankroll. Each deposit method has a required $10 minimum. This is the industry standard, for the most part. Maximum deposit amounts top out at $500, depending on the method used.
With a solid variety of withdrawal options, PartyCasino has done its best to make withdrawals as convenient as possible. For the methods listed below, it can take approximately 3–5 business days to process, but in some instances, we've seen it take even less time.
Right now at Gambling.com, potential PartyCasino users can get a 100 percent deposit match up to $1,000, plus 25 bonus spins using the promo code "WELCOMEBONUS" (this is not a PartyCasino bonus code). This is definitely an offer you do not want to miss as 100 percent deposit matches, while common, rarely go as high as $1,000. You can visit Gambling.com now to learn more about the offer.
Beyond this offer from Gambling.com, there are still some PartyCasino bonuses, though they aren't necessarily what we'd consider "static" PartyCasino offers. In other words, they are limited-time offers that typically don't last longer than a few weeks. Be sure to check the promotions page often as this will change.
Although PartyCasino has been in business for quite some time, it took a while to set up shop in the US. Currently, PartyCasino, which is under GVC Holdings (now Entain PLC), is more popular across the pond. Nonetheless, PartyCasino's popularity is growing stateside, particularly in New Jersey — the only state in which it currently has an established presence.
After securing a partnership with the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, PartyCasino finally landed in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in May 2018 — creating PartyCasino New Jersey. At the time, this brought the state's online casino roster to 10. This partnership and subsequent launch came on the heels of a complete brand refresh in June 2017.
There's a reason it's called PartyCasino. With a seemingly endless selection of casino games to choose from, you'll feel like you're at a nonstop party. While some online casinos invest heavily in the quality of their game titles but lack the extensive library to match, PartyCasino appears to be firing on all cylinders. This operator excels in terms of both quantity and quality. Let's take a look at some of PartyCasino's casino games:
With over 550 slots to choose from, it will be tough to get bored. Along with several industry-standard slot titles, there are also a number of exclusive titles. That's right — games you won't be able to play anywhere else. Players will also get to browse 15 jackpot slots. This was, by far, the most robust section of the platform casino games at the time of this review.
Let's just say that PartyCasino has you covered when it comes to blackjack. Whether you prefer offline blackjack or a live dealer option, you can rest assured: you'll be impressed by PartyCasino's catalog of blackjack games.
There are several different roulette options, traditionally, and PartyCasino has them all in stock. From American to European, this operator seems to have just about everything a roulette player could ask for.
From 3 Card Poker to Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, there are plenty of poker options to go around. There were also live dealer options at the time of this PartyCasino review.
A different flavor than traditional poker, video poker options are out in full force on PartyCasino. If you like poker, but want to try out a new medium, video poker might be just what you're looking for. Game King and Ten Play Draw Poker are among the leading titles.
In our experience, baccarat tends to be somewhat overlooked in online casino play. Well, at PartyCasino, there are five options to choose from, including live dealer titles, so you'll have ample opportunity to see if baccarat is your new go-to table game.
With double-digit offerings, all of your favorite table games have at least one option. Roulette, blackjack, and poker led the way with four options each, at the time of this PartyCasino review.
Slots: Approximately 842 with 27 Jackpot Slots
Live dealer: 16
Video poker: 13
On the home screen, games are broken up into several categories and displayed in rows of six with an arrow icon to browse an extended menu. What does set PartyCasino's menu apart from many of its competitors is that it does display some of its most popular game titles more prominently than others.
As we previously touched on, there are plenty of titles that we are accustomed to seeing. With that, it's safe to expect that the quality of these games will be second-to-none. But what really sets PartyCasino's quality apart is its exclusive titles, which include the same level of detail and precision as the "Divine Fortunes" of the world.
While navigating the site to collect information for this PartyCasino review, it became readily apparent that researching the different elements of the platform would be a breeze, thanks to the user-friendly layout. The more intuitive an online casino is, the less time you spend trying to find what you're looking for and the more time you spend doing what you came for: playing casino games. With that in mind, PartyCasino's UX is nothing short of outstanding.
The desktop version of PartyCasino starts from the top and the various different menus you can access. Some of them include the Casino, Live Dealer games, Promotions, the search bar, and more. Below this, you can choose from the different game categories and browse the variety of titles.
The PartyCasino mobile app is essentially a carbon-copy of the desktop version, minus a few details. Some of these details include the game types and how they are presented. Instead of text, each game type has its own logo. Another key difference is the search option is found in the bottom right-hand corner, instead of up top. Lastly, along the bottom of the app, you'll find a link to promotions and other game types.
While it may not be your typical loyalty or VIP program, PartyCasino does offer a program in "My Cashback". Essentially, this system gives players cashback and is calculated on the amount of the bet, regardless of whether the bet wins or loses. Your cashback amount will be immediately updated as you place bets. You must opt in to this system.
With a minimum balance of $1, you can begin to redeem this cashback program, which can be withdrawn.
All accounts that have been dormant for 90 days will lose their total cashback accumulated.
This PartyCasino review wouldn't be complete without mention of security and fair gameplay. If an online casino fails to devote the necessary resources to customer safety, then that casino is not only cutting corners — it's actually dangerous. We can assure you that security and fairness are a top priority at PartyCasino. After all, to compete in this space for nearly 30 years, you have to be doing something right.
After coming to the US and setting up shop in New Jersey, PartyCasino had to adhere to some rigid protocols and pass some intensive tests. New Jersey has a tried-and-true formula for authorizing online casinos, and PartyCasino had to jump through all of the requisite hoops to become licensed in the state.
Part of becoming an online casino in New Jersey is activating the right systems — namely encryption software — to protect customer data from potential breaches. Licensed by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, PartyCasino is a safe and trustworthy platform, even just beyond the company's own personal milestones and accolades.
When it comes to responsible gaming, PartyCasino takes the issue very seriously. In the upper right-hand corner of the homepage, you will see a green and yellow "RG" logo.
This page is broken up into multiple sections with all of the information you could ever need on addictive gambling tendencies and how to address them.
The first section explains what problem gambling is and how to identify the signs of it. Below that, you'll find contact information for both national and local organizations/hotlines, in the event that you need to speak with a professional.
PartyCasino allows players to set limits on deposits, spending, session time and more. These are excellent tools to utilize to pump the brakes and limit any further potential harm. You may also set aside timeouts/self-exclusionary periods if you need to take either short or longer-term breaks from the platform.
At the end of the day, online gaming is meant to be fun, so please do yourself a favor and learn the risks, conduct your due diligence and do what is ultimately best for you.
In the upper right-hand corner of the homepage, you will find a "Help & Contact" button.
Here, you will see the FAQ section. This section walks you through multiple steps in hopes of finding a resolution for you. However, in the event you are not able to resolve your particular issue, there will be additional prompts if you need more help.
In such a case, here are the other customer service features available:
What's the verdict for this PartyCasino review? Despite the absence of demo mode and several other minor flaws, we can confidently recommend PartyCasino to anybody. Its desktop and app experience stand out from the pack, and the company's security and customer service features prove that it's investing substantial resources into its user experience. All in all, the pluses far outweigh the negatives with this single-state operator, and we think you'll agree.
