El Royale Casino

Many casinos hit you with a slew of colors, offers, and games when you arrive for the first time. That's not true of El Royale Casino though. Here, we do get a welcome bonus deal, but the slick and minimalist site design doesn't bombard you with too much to take in.

Instead, it provides you with splashes of purple and black, a striking design showing characters playing a table game, and some promotions you can scroll through on the right. Let's venture further inside and see what El Royale Casino can deliver.

Do we have games here from a reliable software developer?

Yes, we do, and those games come from Realtime Gaming. The RTG name is attached to many fine titles, including Cash Bandits, Storm Lords Slots, and The Mariachi 5 Slots. No doubt you'll find more great examples of games to play when you sign up to use the casino.

Does the lobby design get top marks?

It does from us, yes. The lobby spreads the games out into six areas. You get the slots, table games, poker games, and specialty games areas, as you would expect. You also get areas reserved for the latest games to be added, along with popular ones in another section.

Is it simple to join the casino?

Look for the person logo with a plus sign next to it. This opens the window for you to sign up for an account. There are three steps involved - account information, personal information, and address information. We like that everything is kept separate and easy to access.

Signup restrictions you should know about for El Royale Casino

The first thing to mention is the higher age limit of 21. This is confirmed in the terms and conditions. If your area demands a higher age limit, however, that limit should be used instead.

The terms and conditions also reveal there are several countries that are not welcomed to make real money wagers at the casino. Several are in Europe and the Middle East. However, the USA, the UK, Australia, and Canada do not appear on the list, so it is great news if you happen to hail from any of those countries. You should confirm your local laws allow online gambling though - don't assume you're fine to sign up if you don't see your country named in the Ts and Cs.

Is this casino a good place to play some games?

You'll need to figure this out for yourself, but we think it ticks a lot of important boxes. There are plenty of games in the table and poker sections, and of course you get a lot of slots to try too. There are fewer titles in the specialty area, but even then, those titles cover a lot of possibilities and game types.

Three ways to find good slots to play

The slots area is the best place to see them all. However, if you want to experience the newest RTG slot games, head for the area named Latest. You could also check out the Popular area as this contains the games everyone is loving right now. They give you a search facility too, so if you can think of an RTG slot you want to play, use that to save time.

How many free games can you try?

It doesn't appear there is a limit. You can choose any game you like that shows as having a demo mode. Once you've done that, you can wait for the loading process to complete and then give it a try. You may be asked to enable Flash, but if this should be the case, you won't need to do it for future games you play in the same session.

Switching over to paid games at the casino

While you can play for nothing in demo mode without logging in, you'll need to open an account and make a deposit to switch to real play. Make sure you claim your welcome bonus as you do so.

There are so many games at El Royale Casino, you can count on having plenty of titles that will suit however much you want to play with.

How often are you going to get access to new slot games?

Realtime Gaming is always working on its next slot release. If you would like to see a monthly release, chances are that is exactly what you'll get at this casino.

Look for the gift logo to find the promotions

This is at the top of the site. Once inside that area, you'll see separate segments for the Welcome Bonus, the Game of the Month, and Special Offers. You can only claim the Welcome Bonus once, but it covers two deposits. Read through the whole page though, as there are some alternatives there. It looks as though you can claim some free spins before that too, so it is worth reading through everything before you get started.

The Game of the Month deal gives you a chance to grab a bonus and some free spins on a selected game. This is often a new one, or at least one that hasn't been around for long.

Finally, you never can tell what you might find inside the Special Offers section. We'll say there are several bonuses in there though, so most deposits you make could potentially receive a boost.

Tournaments are not part of the action

Nothing of the sort was unearthed during our foray into this site.

Any casino winners announced?

We didn't see any mention of any winners on the site.

What about earning some rewards?

There isn't a page on this topic, so you would be forgiven for thinking nothing was on offer. However, we dug deep and within the FAQs there is confirmation that comp points are earned on each wager placed.

Is there a mobile version of the casino to use?

Yes, and this works just fine on Android and iOS platforms. No app is needed.

Is it possible to play without registration at El Royale Casino?

We have some good news for you… the answer is yes. If a game has a demo mode available, this is shown over the top of the logo for that game. If you select that option, the game loads and you can check it out. That's great to know, for sure.

Is this an instant play casino?

It is, so there is no download to think about. Just choose a game and play. Everything works by using your browser, so there is just a second or two to wait for each game to finish loading.

Is there an affiliate program available for El Royale Casino?

Yes, this is provided by Top One Partners. You can search for them online or simply follow the link you're given at the bottom of the El Royale website.

You won't see any sportsbook or racebook services here though

If those are your thing, you'll need to find another sporting site to use to make the most of sporting wagers.

Does El Royale Casino offer a blog or forum?

No, neither of these are available to use.

Live dealer games haven't been added to the site

You get a great selection of table games to try, but none of these come with real dealers in place.

Making deposits at El Royale Casino

If you're ready to do this, the banking page shows you have five available methods. The usual MasterCard and Visa options offer instant deposits from $30 a time. You can also use Bitcoin for a minimum $20 per deposit. Gift cards are accepted for $25 minimum, and Neosurf is best of all with a $10 minimum deposit amount required.

What about making a withdrawal?

If you want to do this, a minimum withdrawal amount of $150 is in place. There are no fees for any of the available methods. You can use Visa or MasterCard, request a bank transfer, or use Bitcoin.

Does the casino have any Bitcoin bonuses to consider using?

We recommend keeping an eye on the Special Offers area of the promotions page. We spotted lots of deals here, and each one had minimum deposit amounts depending on the deposit method you chose. If a Bitcoin bonus is going to appear, this is where it is most likely to be spotted.

Help is easy to reach if you use live chat

They've provided a live chat facility via Tawk.to, which can be accessed via the block-style speech bubble icon in the bottom right of your screen. You'll see a new window open, with the opportunity to type your query in there. Anyone can use this - you don't need to be logged into your account. They do also have a great FAQ area as we mentioned previously. This is good to see and is a nice way to start finding out more about El Royale Casino.
