Platinum Play Casino Review

The Platinum Play Casino is a very popular online casino.  The casino software runs on the very powerful Microgaming platform which is rated very highly among many online casino players.  It is owned and operated by the Fortune Lounge Group, the winner of the 2005 Best Casino Group, and has been in operation since 1997.  So the casino ownership, the software, the casino games are all second to none and neither is the welcome bonus.  New players will be eligible for a 100% welcome bonus up to $200 bonus.  This bonus combined with some of the highest pay out percentages in the industry, makes the Platinum Play online casino the casino of choice for many players that play on the Internet.

There will be an added bonus to your first two deposits here.  After making your first deposit, you will be able to claim a 100% welcome bonus up to $200.  Just remember that after you make a $20 or more deposit to go to the Platinum Play website and claim your bonus before you start playing.
    The bonus is a cashable bonus and will be in a separate bonus account until it has been earned.  As you continue to play you will earn your bonus and it will be released into your account in $10 intervals.  To clear a bonus you will need to play thirty times your bonus, except for the first welcome bonus which will be cleared at a rate of forty times your bonus.
    Any bonus you earned, can not be taken back.  Most online casinos have a clause where if you don't play a certain amount of games or a specific type of game you will lose your bonus and your winnings.  Platinum Play does not do that, this makes if fair for both you and the casino and doesn't require you to read a long list of terms of conditions that you almost need a lawyer to sort out.
    Some casino games, because of their high pay out percentage, require a higher play through requirement.  The pay rates may be discounted from 2% to 20% depending on the casino game.  In the end the discounts make all the games relatively even by giving higher play through discounts to games with lower pay out percentages and lower play through discounts to games with higher pay out percentages.

How the welcome bonus works for different games
Slots: $200 bonus = 40 x (100%) x $200 = $8000 Play Through x (95.34%) = $7627.20 + $200 bonus = $7827.20/$8000 = 97.8% pay out with bonus

Video Poker: $200 bonus = 40 x (10%) x $200 = $80,000 Play Through x (98.9%) = $79120 + $200 bonus = $79320/$80000 = 99.2% pay out with bonus

Platinum Play Casino Games

Without a good selection of casino games, a online casino would be worthless, luckily that is not the case here.  The Platinum Play Casino is loaded with 145 slot machines, 17 video poker games and 34 table games.  Depending on the game you are playing, play through rate for your welcome bonus will vary, but in the end most casino games will have relatively the same pay out percentage once the bonus has been take into account.

Some of the best times I have ever had playing slot machines were right here at the Platinum Play Casino.  The world famous Tomb Raider slots, Tomb Raider 2, the Hit Man slots and Wheel of Wealth are all available here.  These games are not your typical slot machines, they have some fun and unique bonus features that make playing these slots a blast.  There are also 22 bonus slots including the Fire 'n' Dice and Pub Fruity slots.  Players looking for a simpler slot game to play might appreciate the 58 three reel slot machines.  The play through rate for the welcome bonus for all the slot machines are not discounted and will reward you with 100% of your play.  This will help turn the already player friendly 4.7% house edge to 2.2% with your first welcome bonus or 1.3% with a reload bonus.

Video Poker
There are 17 video poker games at the Platinum Play online casino that we have reviewed.  There are the classics including Jacks or Better, Tens or better, Aces and Faces, Joker Poker and Deuces Wild as well as some bonus games and the progressive Jackpot Deuces.  The pay out percentages range from 98.9% to 99.8%.  The play through rate for the welcome bonus is discounted at 10% or 2% for all Aces video poker.  The effective pay out after the bonus is taken into account is an incredible 99.2%.  This is assuming proper game play by you.

Table Games
Finding the type of table game you want to play, should not be a problem here.  Almost every well known casino game is in this Internet casino including the classics like Roulette, Blackjack and Craps, but also more obscure games such as Sic Bo and Red Dog.  The pay out percentage average for all the table games is 97.3%, but some table games, with proper game play, can pay out up to 99%.  The play through rate for the welcome bonus differs depending on the table game you are playing.

Editor's Note

I like this Internet casino, not only for all the great casino games, but because the welcome bonus is a good size and the bonus terms and conditions are more than fair.  We feel comfortable in the security features in the software and more importantly in the ownership of the Platinum Play online casino.  The Fortune Group is highly respected organization that has been in business and keeping care of their players since 1997.  I can't guarantee that you will have fun or even win, in fact in the long run I can almost guarantee that you won't, but I will guarantee you that the Platinum Play Casino is a fair and honest Internet casino that you and I can trust.
