With a retail location going by the same name in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, since 2018, Parx Casino also has an online casino platform for those that find themselves in Pennsylvania. Partnered with the software developer GAN, can Parx Casino bring its brick-and-mortar experience to the online realm? Let’s examine to find out.
|Excellent partnership (with GAN)||Promotions for casino limited|
The welcome offer is the sole promotional offering at Parx Casino. With this offer, and using promo code “CASINO500” players receive up to $500 in deposit matching and also 500 free spins, divided up over five weeks.
Outside of the welcome offer, there are no other promotions related to the online casino.
To retrieve the deposit match, players must complete a 20x playthrough. However, not each game type is created equally in this case. Slots are matched 1:1, whereas roulette is 50 percent, followed by table games and video poker being at just 10 percent.
The registration process at Parx Casino is fast and easy to complete. The entire process takes place over three steps that ask for the following information:
You will also need to be located in Pennsylvania to make real money wagers at Parx Casino. How does Parx Casino know you’re in Pennsylvania? Well, through geolocation software, it will be able to identify your location.
Parx Casino has a nice selection of payment options relative to some of their competitors.
Parx Casino is partnered with a software juggernaut in GAN. GAN is also partnered with other casinos and has been in a relationship with Parx since 2015.
Parx Casino is available on desktop, and for both iOS and Android devices. Starting with the desktop platform, you will find the homepage is essentially a giant advertising for the different things available at Parx Casino, including how much money different users have won.
To access the casino, there is a collapsible drop-down menu on the left-hand side of the screen. After clicking on the casino option, you will arrive at the casino homepage. Like the Parx Casino homepage, the first thing you will see is a carousel ad for different products offered at Parx Casino.
Below this, you will see various casino game types offered, in this order: All, Featured, New, Popular, Slots, Tables, Vegas Classics. The games are displayed in rows of three. To the right of the game options, you will find a search bar to find particular titles.
Also, the live chat option is also available and can be found in the lower-right-hand corner of the page.
For the mobile app, it’s the same set-up, including the menu. The only difference is the games are displayed in rows of two versus three. Both platforms are exceedingly easy to navigate and we encountered zero loading/buffering issues. This was an excellent experience.
Parx Casino has a small selection of games, but has both slots and table games available.
Return to Player Percentages is easiest to understand in these terms: How much money does the user get back over time? With Return to Player Percentages (RTP), this is done for every one dollar. Of course, the higher the better, but typically we see games run anywhere from 94 percent and up.
Meaning, for every $1 wagered, players would get back $0.94 over time. Unfortunately, we were unable to find this data for Parx Casino games.
Betting limits range far and wide depending on game types. Depending on the game type, you can find minimum bets for as low as $0.01 and as high as hundreds of dollars. Each game type will tell you the minimum and maximum amounts.
Parx Casino does not currently offer and VIP or Rewards Program.
Parx Casino has the following customer support options:
To access the contact list page, there is a link through the Help Center button, which is found through the collapsible drop-down menu in the upper-left-hand corner of the page.
The Responsible Gaming section can be found on the left-hand side of the homepage. Upon arrival to the page, you will find the nationwide hotline, 1-800-GAMBLER. However, the section has much more to offer than that. In fact, there are 11 more subheadings with information in each.
The “limits” listed above can be done right at Parx Casino and are excellent safeguards should you feel you are experiencing problematic gambling.
The main things holding Parx Casino back is the game library as there are few titles compared to the competition. With that said, there is definitely enough to work with. The welcome offer is also a high amount, but the playthrough requirement makes it a bit hard to reach, especially considering the lack of game options.
Outside of that, Parx Casino has everything else going for it. The product itself (interface, software, desktop and mobile platforms) are among the best. As more games become added, Parx Casino will only grow in users. Still, we recommend checking out Parx Casino as the experience was extremely user-friendly.
