Intercasino Casino Review - My Experience

Intercasino Reviewed by Simmo! on Dec 09, 2011:

Been around since 1996 and still a highly regarded online casino. Intercasino was one of the first online casinos and is still very popular thanks to a huge range of unique games and instant cashouts. Bonuses are sparse, but the overall impression is of a casino that knows what players want.

My Rating: 4.0/5

Important Update: Intercasino no longer accepts US players

  • Cryptologic software
  • Licenced in Malta (not a great jurisdiction tbh)
  • Very fast cashouts and very good games

Intercasino is a well known name in online casino circles and it will come as absolutely no surprise to experienced players to see it in my lists of the top casinos - most reviewers I know would agree that Intercasino has an exemplorary reputation. It is actually owned by Amaya who also own Cryptologic, a casino software house that competes with the likes of Microgaming (see my Microgaming casino reviews). Like Microgaming, its a popular and widely respected platform in terms of games choice and fairness but over tie it has somewhat faded away while Microgaming has gone from strength to strength. That doesn't mean the games are poor though - far from it.

Intercasino was the 3rd casino I ever played, way back around 2004 after Laddies (Ladbrokes Casino Review) and 32Red, both of which use Microgaming's software. One couldargue that the graphics aren't as neat as Microgaming casinos, and in my opinion, their slots lack a lot of the "fun factor", but their Video Poker, while largely manual is one of the big attractions. They also have the advantage of a "multi-player"table game environment which you don't get at many other online casinos, along with the ability to play in private rooms with other people.

Intercasino is what one might call the "flagship" of Cryptologic casinos. In fact, since being purchased by Amaya, they have followed in the footsteps of one or two other casinos like MyBet (MyBet casino review) and also added some Aristocrat slots to the portfolio which is a good move as although Cryptologic's slots re OK, they lack the familiarity and Aristocrat's games are of course seen in and casinos.

Being a casino with a large user-base means that support isn't always the quickest admitedly, but it counters that with a good range of banking options operated through the Ecash service provided by Cryptologic for its partners. This means there is no "Reverse Withdrawal" period at Intercasino and all winnings are processed with reasonable if not outstanding speed - 24 hours to 5 days depending on where you live and the banking option chosen.

The choice of games at Intercasino is good although in some areas, slots and table games most notably, other providers like Miocrogaming have overtaken them in recent years in my opinion. What they are best at is video poker - the several VP games they offer are easily the closest online experience to IGT's video poker, which I love. One should remember of course that there is no "Expert Mode" at Intercasino so it's down to you to know your strategy.

As a generalisation, the slot games at Intercasino are what I would call 'decent' but, as previously mentioned, they are starting to feel a little dated agianst offerings from the other providers and now that IGT and WMS have bought many of their land-based slots online (see my Jackpot Party review) I wonder if Intercasino's slots will really cut it with players that know the options. That said, the range of slot games is pretty good and some of the bonus features pay handsomely. The range of Marvel slots are pretty awesome and their version of "King Kong", while not graphically as beautiful as Playtech's King Kong slot, has a superb feature with up to 150 free spins on offer!

Intercasino does have some fairly good promotions and they also regularly run tournaments on many games which you can participate in if you so wish. Intercasino has won several "Best Casino" awards down the years although not so recently (Nov 2011). While I tend to take awards with a pinch of salt myself it does indicate that they are popular and to be fair, they do deserve credit for the smooth and ethical way they run the Intercasino.

Conclusion

Personally, Intercasino would be my first choice if I specifically wanted to play Cryptologic slot games or for any type of video poker. With Microgaming's games suite so now extensive and in my opinion better in all areas with the exception of video poker (which is still pretty good) I'm still inclined to head to a Microgaming casino first for most other types of game (see my 32Red Casino review or my Roxy Palace review) but what Intercasino does, it does well and in a no-nonsense style (with fast cashouts too) that is very refreshing to be honest.
