Whatever you prefer playing, you’re sure to find a range of fun games at PartyCasino. With the main software developed by its in-house team and a range of exciting games provided by various other casino software developers, you're definitely not going to get bored here. The casino’s introductory £3,000 welcome bonus boosts your bank roll and allows you to test the main bulk of their slot games. If you're a diehard table games player, then there's a bonus specifically for you and likewise, roulette players are also catered for.
We have to admit that before PartyCasino started doing deals with third-party casino software developers, their games were on the weak side, especially their slots. However, things have changed and they've definitely upped their game. PartyCasino's new range of table games are so much slicker and the slots are really on the money. Couple that with 10 table games such as baccarat, let ‘em ride, red dog and craps, 14 video poker varieties and 12 variations of blackjack and roulette and you've got yourself a solid game offering.
More than 115 slots, with modern classics like Cleopatra and Pharaoh's Treasure all making an appearance. What now seem to be the ubiquitous Marvel slots also appear so keep your eyes out for Spiderman, The Hulk, Thor and The Fantastic Four. Just as entertaining are PartyCasino's own exclusive games, designed and built by their in-house casino game team. The best of these come in the form of The Terminator, Call Of The Colosseum and Sinatra. The latter really capturing the essence of the great man himself over a 20 line game and a quiet remarkable feature round.
Bonuses and Promotions
Party isn't a casino short on bonus and promotions ideas. New players can choose between three different welcome bonuses. For slots heads, there's a three part 100% bonus up to £3,000, a 50% bonus up to £200 for casino games players (including blackjack which is nice) and a very unusual 100% bonus up to £500 for roulette. On the slots bonus wagering is 20x, the blackjack 100x and the roulette 50x.
A 'custom' monthly bonus is also on offer, where your previous game play is taken into consideration and a suitable bonus is then applied to your account - a very nice idea. In addition to this is another feature we rarely see; a dedicated promotions calendar. Near enough every day on their site you can find this calendar offering things like 15% cash back on any losses you make, double points and cash prizes for reaching a certain amount of points in a day. A great idea, but you'll need to keep checking that calendar.
Combine this with a very well thought out (sometimes a little complex) rewards program and we're more than happy to give Party Casino's bonus and promotions the thumbs up.
Coming in instant and download flavours, the PartyCasino software is well designed and relatively easy to install. The usual story with software that's designed in-house is that it's clunky, stalls and can send your machine into a downward spiral. Thankfully, this isn't the case here. You're presented with a nicely designed easy to understand lobby. Game preferences, cashier, my account and of course support are all easy to access from the main screen, as are the latest progressive jackpots and promotions. A nice touch is the 'game finder' search facility, which saves you time looking for a particular game you're after. A shared wallet is also on hand to allow you to seamlessly play on their poker, backgammon, bingo and sports book - if they take your fancy.
Gameplay on the instant version is pretty much as expected; nothing ground breaking and it doesn't have all their top games, so where possible opt for the download.
In gameplay on the download version, the cards are dealt fast and the reels all fall nice and smoothly with no jittering or intermittent pauses. This all adds up to a slick experience but without the feeling that your pressured to keep hitting that spin or bet button more than you need to.
Being listed on the stock exchange allows you a certain pulling power and authority and this echoes down to the banking, where you can find the 'world and his wife' of ways to deposit and withdraw. There's way too many to list here but you can manage your finances via Visa, Mastercard, bank transfer, WebMoney, EntroPay, ClickandBuy, Neteller, the list is endless and their handy live support will popup if your having any problems.

PartyCasino's payouts are verified by iTechLabs and a report from January 2011 indicates that the casino has an overall payout percentage of 95.05%. However, according to the report, some games do payout better than others. Here are the top casino games on offer at PartyCasino, ordered by payout percentages:
|Other Games Combined (e.g. Live Dealer Blackjack/Baccarat)||97.25%|
|Single Deck Blackjack||97.06%|
|All Games (Combined)||95.05%|
If we take PartyCasino's payout percentage of 95% for all games combined, here's what could hypothetically happen with a bankroll of £1,000:
|Play cycle||95% Payout|
The above play cycle is of course based on hypothetical gameplay and payout percentages should always be taken merely as guidelines. However, it does indicate that after your tenth play cycle, you'd be left with nearly £600.
