Review: Desert Nights Mobile Casino – unique games

Desert Nights Mobile Casino LogoIt is not very often that we come across a casino that accepts players from the USA, and although that in itself doesn't make much of a difference to British players, it means that the customer service at Desert Nights Mobile Casino is second to none. Of course, the great game count (200+) also adds to the enjoyment of this casino, as does the unique, Arabian-themed site and the smooth gaming interface of the casino on mobile devices. However, decide for yourself if you wish to play at a casino where Brits cannot claim any of the welcome bonuses and promotions…

When you visit the site of the casino, you will be faced with a decision: download the software or use the instant-play version of the casino. While both choices have merits, the game count is higher on the downloadable version of the casino, so I went for that. The conclusion is that there are classic penny slots, sophisticated video slots, massive jackpots, table games, bingo rooms and everything in between at Desert Nights Mobile Casino.

Although before the casino used to run Real Time Gaming software, since 2014, it is exclusively offering Rival Gaming games. They aren't available at many other casinos, but that doesn't mean they are B-list games. Actually, quite the contrary. The Rival games are beautifully designed, run smoothly and have interesting themes, although the return-to-player percentages aren't published anywhere on the casino's site.

Sure, there is the free eight euro that you get when you register and there is also the €2,550 welcome bonus that you can get by making various deposits. However, it's no use talking about them, because if you are registered as a player from Great Britain, there is no way you could claim either of the welcome bonuses. It seems that Desert Nights have cherry picked the European countries that most gamblers come from, such as the UK, and made the bonuses unavailable to them, which is more than unfortunate.

There are weekly and monthly promotions that run at Desert Nights and we would be much more excited to tell you all about them if they were actually available to UK players. As it stands, none of the three promotions that are currently described on the site are available to Brits, which makes no sense to me whatsoever. So, that's that.

Desert Nights Mobile Casino Deposit MethodsThere is a handy page dedicated only to deposits at Desert Nights Mobile Casino, which is great. I hate trawling through T&Cs, FAQs and cashier pages to find the information that I need about banking at a casino, all of which makes it super confusing and sometimes conflicting information is presented.

Simply visit the cashier and choose a method that is the most suitable for you to deposit. Your choices are quite varied: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Neteller, EcoCard, Skrill and Ukash. All of these methods deposit funds to your gaming account instantly, are secure and very easy to use.

Keep in mind that before you are even allowed to play for real money at the casino, you must make a minimum deposit of $25 in casino chips (or equivalent in your chosen currency). This is quite a low threshold to be able to enjoy a great casino, but if you aren't certain if you'd like to commit to it first, you can check out the games in Fun Play mode.

Desert Nights Mobile Casino Withdrawal MethodsWithdrawal options are slightly more limited: Neteller, Skrill, bank wire, cheque and EcoCard are all available for you to cashout. You'll be glad to know that Neteller, Skrill and EcoCard withdrawals are free, but only if you play through the entire amount at least once before requesting to cashout. Withdrawals via a wire transfer incur a £10 fee.

A minimum amount that you may request to take out from your cashier via a wire transfer is £100 and a maximum is hardly a large sum at £2,000. Neteller, Skrill and EcoCard minimum withdrawal threshold is a more manageable £25, but the maximum remains the same at a rather disappointing £2,000.

Now to even more disappointing part. Withdrawals can take anywhere from two to 18 (!!!) days to process, depending on how lucky you are I'm guessing. In the first 24 hours, you can reverse any pending withdrawal.

Are the Bonuses and Promotions Worth Fighting For?

Large vs Small Sumo Wrestler, Lack of FairnessAs you've already gathered from the Bonuses and Promotions sections of this review, players from the United Kingdom aren't able to participate in the welcome bonus or the promotion schemes. On one hand, that has outraged me, but on the other hand, are they ever worth the effort anyway?

Of course, they sound great – free money, extra cash when you deposit, return of your losses and many other schemes of rewarding you for playing at a specific casino. But they always have many conditions attached, not least the wagering requirements, limits as to which games the money must be wagered on, time frames within which you must do so, et cetera… So perhaps it's not even a big deal that British players can't claim the bonuses and promotions at Desert Nights Casino. Ultimately, you must decide if playing without them is going to sustain your interest in this casino.

Droid Slots' Stamp of Approval

All in all, Desert Nights Mobile casino is quite a unique casino. It has a game portfolio that cannot be found in many other casinos. Furthermore, it openly accepts players from the United States and thus has great customer service. However, by embracing the US players, it somewhat neglects the Brits by excluding them from all of the welcome bonuses and promotions. Add the stringent withdrawal limits and the excessive cashout times, and you got a three-stared mobile casino.

Mobile Casino Reviews

Where should you play today? It’s a question posed to every mobile gamer when they pick up their phone and tablet, and a critically important one. It’s a question that decides what kind of game you’ll play, what kind of bonuses you’ll be awarded, and what kind of money will be in your pocket at the end of the day. That’s why Droid Slots is at hand to help address this question, with the help of our mobile casino reviews. Our casino reviews manage to be formulaic enough that you can easily compare the stats and figures of various casinos, but at the same time flexible enough that they can present the unique and original aspects of casinos that make them outstanding. Our hope is that you can use our reviews to find the casinos which offer exactly what you’re looking for, and – almost equally as important – avoid those which don’t suit your style of play.
