LIVE CASINO

While there is a section for a live casino listed, there appears to be none of offer. We could also find no mention of this in the documentation. Most likely this section came with the software system, and was simply not removed when this version was created. You might see this on similar services based off a Microgaming framework.

OTHER SERVICES

Phoenician Casino comes with a live-chat service. This is available 24/7. It also comes with an email address for general enquiries.

Phoenician Casino includes toll free numbers for Canada, UK, Denmark and Germany. It also comes with a toll-free international line. They also claim that users can use the free phone service by simply emailing the staff a full telephone number. Once the staff receive this they will call straight back.

The help section for Phoenician Casino comes in the form of an FAQ. This covers the following topics: software questions, login and registration, banking, loyalty programs, casino games and other questions.

They also offer a responsible gambling section which is of high quality. This section includes basic information as well as self-exclusion tools.

Phoenician Casino Design and Usability

When it comes to basing games off the Microgaming desktop framework, such as with this online casino, there is only so much which can be modified. Of all of these sites, and there a lot, this casino is among the ugliest. While the buttons themselves are modified to an acceptable degree the background image appears to come right out of the 90's. Stretched, pixelated and with artefacts, this is a system in dire need of updating.

When it comes to usability, this is a program which does as you would expect. While the program is a little outdated it runs just fine, and comes with all the options you would generally expect. The main draw from this program, and others like it, is that it can store the games you play for later. What this means is that when you download a game it will stay downloaded, unlike in browser based casinos which can lose their data through regular computer operation.

MOBILE APPS

There is no official phone app available from Phoenician Casino. Despite this, it will work on some mobile devices. Specifically, if you have a Windows based device, or one capable of running .exe files this software system might work.

  • Compatible Systems

Windows Based devices, and those capable of running and installing programs from .exe files. No likely to work  well on Apple devices, though let us know if your experience differs!

HOW TO REGISTER

Registration for Phoenician Casino is done by first downloading the software. This is done by accessing their website and following the download links.

Simply follow these instructions and you'll be ready to go.

Phoenician Signup 1

The first page which the user sees after downloading and installing the software. Here the user inputs basic personal details.

Phoenician Signup 2

The second page of the registration process. This one is concerned with address and locational information.

Phoenician Signup 3

The final page in which the user sets their password, email, currency and phone number.

After these steps are completed the user will be given an account registration complete prompt. This will also show the user their randomly generated username. This will often be a difficult mess of letters, so it would be best to keep a pen handy. Just remember to not write down your password, if you can help it, for security reasons.

These are all on top of a 24-48 hour pending time. The withdrawal limit for Phoenician Casino sits at 4000 per week.

The wagering requirements of Phoenician Casino sits at 60x on pokies, which is towards the higher end.

Contributions from other games are as follows:

As is standard with gambling website bonuses, these are cut into two different forms. These are as follows:

WELCOME BONUSES

The welcome bonus from Phoenician Casino is spread into 3 tiers, which must be claimed shortly after account creation. The total bonus cash which can be gained is $1200. The tiers are as follows:

CURRENT PROMOTIONS

All of these promotions operate together with the Rewards Affiliates system which is shared between Phoenician Casino and many others. In this system the player generate status points as they spend money and play games, these points give various bonuses and unlock further reward tiers. Included among these bonuses is the Time of your Life sweepstake's. In this the player can look through the available prizes for each status tier and select one. Tickets which are then earned through play will then generate chances to win these prizes. This is just one example of the prizes available from this Rewards Affiliates, they are constantly updating their prize pools and bonuses.

 

Life of Riches

In this monthly promo the player is gifted double reward points from the Life of Riches pokie.

Adventure Palace

In the week starting the 15th of April, 2017, the top five wagerers of Adventure Palace will receive €100 into their Rewards Account.

Our Experience and General Reviews

My experience when I used Phoenician Casino has been similar to many which share the same framework, mid-range speed and above average reliability.

General reviews of Phoenician Casino run from medium to high. Most review sites place it around the 3-4 star range.

COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS

The main area in which Phoenician Casino reflects well is its selection of pokies and blackjack games. Here its selection is fantastic, though some users might be put off by the reliance on Microgaming based games. When it comes to other games the selection is a lot worse, with no live games and very few other bases being covered.

The wagering requirements for the site are also quite high, which means a lot of time will have to be spent when trying to meet them.

The signup bonuses for this service are a lot better than what is offered by other almost Microgaming desktop gambling program services, though this is somewhat let down by the high wagering requirements which need to be met. What is great is the affiliate reward system which is used by Phoenician Casino. The prize customisation available by using this system stands as fairly unique.

OTHER'S OPINIONS

General consensus on Phoenician Casino is that the program runs well, and is solidly designed, if a little unoriginal.

Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it a 7.7/10, with wizardofodds.com rating it at 5/5, casinolistings.com giving it an 8/10 and casinomeister.com giving it an 8/10.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Unfortunately this is one of those systems which has no associated social media presence. This could potentially be due to the fact that the entire design looks like it hasn't been updated since before the advent or popularisation of either Twitter or Facebook.

OUR RATING

Let's start off with what is good. Microgaming slots and blackjack here are great, and cover all of the bases which you would expect. Their bonuses, specifically in terms of the rewards system, can also be pretty darned good. In terms of design and modern aspects of the system it is a complete letdown. Bizarre in how outdated the look is, and how easy and simple it would be to update. That said, this might be a good choice if you are on an very old computer system.

Even though I can say I like this casino, I cannot argue that it is fully functional.

2.5/5 stars
