Since Very Vegas launched way back in 2011, the site has been commited to bringing the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the palm of your hand. Besides neon lights, the casino offers over 30 games including a good handful of progressive jackpots. You could say that these are the few most important elements that characterise Vegas. But that’s not all! There’s also a £5 Free Bonus to collect upon arrival and monthly promotions to refresh your bank balance. Indeed, Very Vegas has all the makings of a very good mobile casino and perhaps that’s why it remains popular as ever. Read on to find out more.

Well, there’s some good’uns to be found in the collection of 30 titles on offer here, with highlights including Pharaoh’s Fortunes, Way Of The Slot and the famed Knight’s Jackpot with its record-breaking £110,000 jackpot. Wait a minute – this all sounds rather familiar! That’s right, the roster of games available at Very Vegas is almost completely identical to those you can play at other Probability sites like LadyLucks and Moobile Games.
However, if somethings not broke, don’t fix it right? We’ve always enjoyed the games available at it’s sister sites, so there’s nothing inherently wrong with the selection at Very Vegas either. Every slot is designed after a different theme; it’s cheesy, very Vegas-y and totally enjoyable. The random number generator behind each slot is configured to produce small and frequent wins, with a couple of large-ish wins thrown in. The newer slot games also come along with money-making features – Moving Moments features a stacked Wild Symbol that hangs around for many spins.
All games on Very Vegas are available on all mobile devices. This includes iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows and most tablets. You won’t need to download any apps or special plugins; simply visit Very Vegas from any Internet browser.
For those who aren’t so keen on slots, Very Vegas also offers also offers Roulette, Blackjack and Bingo. With one variant of each type of game it’s far from a big range of choice, although as you can play straight from your handset, this can be partially excused. However, realistically, if you’re not a slot fan this probably isn’t the casino for you.
Here’s some of our favourite games available at Very Vegas right now:
Fizz Factory – Essentially, the Probability gang is cashing in on the success of popular game Candy King. But what’s more fun, winning actual cash money or asking Facebook friends for lives? Fizz Factory has 50 paylines which means the game is high speed and exciting. There’s a minimum bet of 2p and a paytable which reaches x500. It’s a fairly low risk slot, which means it gives small and frequent winnings, but that it can suit any sort of player!
The Only Way Is Slots – Another chance for Very Vegas to hit you with some pop culture! The Only Way Is Slots is obviously based around the in-demand reality TV show, The Only Way Is Essex. But that doesn’t mean you need a spray tan to play. With big wins renamed as OMG and REEM and 50 paylines to play for, there’s excitement and a bit of cheese throughout.
Treasure Blast – One of the newest releases available at Very Vegas, Treasure Blast is a Chinese New Year themed slot packed with fireworks and celebration. It’s a five reel, 40 payline slot game and there’s chances for bonus spins all the time. There’s also wild grenade symbols which give you the opportunity to get your hands on a £1000 jackpot!
Bonuses and Promotions
If there isn’t a new game to pull players in, perhaps a great set of new player bonuses? That’s surely the kind of thing that would attract people. Well, we’re glad to say that it’s a better show for Very Vegas on this account. When you sign up, you’ll automatically get £5 to play with and ‘try out the games’. Obviously, for players who are already familiar with any Probability casino, this will be less ‘trying out’ and more ‘having some free spins’, but a fiver is a fiver at the end of the day, and not to be sneezed at.
You’ll also be pretty happy to hear that the match bonuses for your first few deposits are pretty handsome too:
- £150 for your first deposit,
- £50 for your second and
- £25 for your third.
So with the possibility of playing with an extra £225, there really is an incentive to play at Very Vegas, even if it’s not Very Varied in terms of games.
Upon studying the fine print, I discovered that these deposit match bonuses are not applicable if you deposit via phone bill or landline. This is because the cost of providing phone bill deposits are much higher than accepting card payments, and so the casino cannot afford to provide free cash. We’ve found this to be the case at other Probability casinos too. We understand why they’ve made the decision, but when a casino offers something, we think it should be available to all players and maybe they should have just accepted the loss.
Another drawback is that all bonuses must be wagered at least 50 times before a withdrawal can be made. For example, if you received a £10 Bonus, you must wager at least £500 before you can withdraw the bonus. Of course, you can go around this by forfeiting any unused bonuses when making a withdrawal.
Back to Table of Contents.
Very Vegas rolls out new promotions all the time, although they’ve got a few consistent weekly events to keep everyone happy too.
- Monday Madness – Mondays are scientifically proved to exist just to make you sad. Whilst this may not be exactly true, Very Vegas want to help you make the day better anyway. All players can claim 10% cashback on all losses, up to £30, each and every Monday! Claim 10% cashback on cash losses with Monday Madness. You could get a minimum of £1 all the way up to £30 CASH paid back the following Tuesday.
- Happy Hump Day – On Wednesdays players can celebrate a 100% deposit match bonus, up to 100%, to make their week go a little faster! All players need to deposit at lest £10, and if you’re a VIP member the offer extends all the way up to £200!
- Finally Fridays – A promotion invented to get you excited that the weekend is finally here! Very Vegas are awarding players with a 100% deposit match bonus, up to £250, on all deposits of £10 or more! VIP players are not included in this promotion, although will receive their mystery bonus every Friday instead.
Most of these promotions are in the form of deposit match bonuses; ie. extra cash if you deposit. It would be wise to check their Facebook page or our promo codes section before depositing, as these promo codes are offered quite frequently.
Very Vegas accepts deposits via:
- Credit/ Debit Cards – Visa, Maestro, Mastercard, Solo
- BT Landline and mobile deposits, powered by Boku
- E-Wallets: PayPal and paysafecard
For the uninitiated, the mobile and landline billing option allows you to charge your casino deposits to your monthly phone bill, or deduct it from your prepaid phone credit. You can choose this option with any UK mobile phone network, including Three, O2, Vodafone, Virgin Media and EE. The payment process is really convenient, as you just need to confirm the payment via text message.
There’s a minimum deposit of £5 for most depositing methods, with the exception of £1.50 for depositing by BT Landline Bill and £10 via paysafecard. All deposits are processed instantly and no fees are charged for using whichever method. Remember! bonuses are only provided for deposits made via credit/ debit cards.
Very Vegas allows players to withdraw up to £20,000, with no charges involved. They pay out via debit/credit card or cheque only; card withdrawals are processed in 2-3 days, whereas cheques are posted within 3-5 days.
Are the Vegas lights too gaudy?
One of the selling points of the casino is meant to be the ‘exciting’ and flashy appearance. Players are met with blinking neon sign effects, which we assume are meant to make the site look and feel like the Vegas strip, and as such convey the same glamour and excitement of the famous gambling mecca. Unfortunately, all this achieves is making the casino look gaudy and garish, and – we think at least – that the overplaying of the ‘Vegas’ connection is a cliché which has become pretty old hat in the mobile gambling world (and the online gambling world at large).
Yet, you can argue that everyone should have a Vegas experience. Vegas is a flashy place, but more importantly, it is the destination to have fun and make money. Very Vegas pulls it off reasonably well, especially for a mobile casino. Besides the headache-inducing aesthetics, the casino has all the other elements down to the tee – bonuses to attract customers, games to engage them and promotions to keep them coming back. This is largely due to experience and expertise. Its owner, Probability is a London-based software provider that has launched many successful mobile casinos in the UK, and Very Vegas is no exception.
If you’re expecting a revolutionary gaming experience, then you’ll be sorely disappointed. However, if you’re the kind of player who is keen to take advantage of bonuses, and cares more about fun than originality then it might just be worth giving Very Vegas a go. It’s been one of our top sites since it launched and we’re still thoroughly impressed. Of course, since online casinos have come on leaps and bounds there is a sort of dated feel about the place, however sometimes you can’t beat an old favourite.
