Sky Vegas are something of an anomaly in the online casino world I think, they have a seemingly bespoke platform that integrates a mixture of softwares, and their poker software is entirely unique and bespoke as well. The games on offer are from a variety of providers including NetEnt, IGT, WMS, GTECH and Barcrest.
There bonus system is also like nothing else I have seen before – the very first time I got a bonus from these it went into the “FREE BETS” part at the top of the screen on all of their games, and it came with no wagering requirements whatsoever. I am unsure if this is how all of their bonuses work, I can’t imagine it is because every other online casino has wagering requirements of 30 or more times the bonus amount whereas Sky Vegas just give you the money without any restrictions… it just doesn't seem to add up to me.
Recently they have discontinued supporting Neteller and Skrill as payment methods, although they do continue to offer Paypal as a payment method. I’m not sure what the score is with this decision, it really does not make much sense to me although some other casinos such as the 32red group have stopped paying out on a weekend recently which directly affects e-wallets customers.
Something I have to say is that I really do not trust the video poker on offer from this site, I think it is the Wagerworks video poker software but the double up feature uses an unusual system whereby suits count when determining who has the highest card and for some reason the highest card in the entire deck, the ace of spades, seems to appear much more than you would statistically expect. The reason given for things such as this in the past was that the game was just showing this card as a way of displaying a player loss however I just think that they could put far more effort into the whole thing personally… it just doesn't seem good enough baring in my gamblers are a superstitious bunch and doing things this way is bound to set tongues wagging!
... Today I received an e-mail from Sky telling me that "following positive feedback" they are to remove the ability to deposit and withdraw using Neteller and Skrill?!? Paypal will continue to be allowed, as will, of course, all credit and debit cards, but to me this is a huge step back and I cannot possibly see any justification for it?!
The table games are the IGT/WagerWorks variety, which I have found to be particularly brutal in terms of emptying your wallet - no matter how many times I decide to give their blackjack "just one more try", I still end up giggling at the horrendous beating the dealer gives me, and vowing never to give it another penny. Yet somehow I convince myself I must have just been unlucky and do end up having another go... I must be a sucker for punishment?!
