Aladdin’s Gold casino first broke onto the scene in around 2004. Many other Microgaming and Playtech giants were already in operation by then, but the Real Time Gaming platform was just starting to make waves in the industry. The RTG platform suits Aladdin’s Gold well for a few reasons, none the least of which are the realistic gaming features.
In their mission statement, Aladdin’s Gold claims to be a high-tech casino working to set the highest gaming standards for everyone who plays. They allow a US audience to participate, so their market is fairly large. They’re also officially licensed and regulated by the gaming authorities of Curacao.
English is the primary language on the site and you won’t find many options beyond that. Their support is also a little suspect in terms of options to contact a representative. In the support section of the site, you’re directed to a “live chat” feature, but it’s merely a support ticket you’ll fill out and then have to wait for a response. Other than that and a toll-free number, there are no other options.
There are a few decent promotions at Aladdin’s Gold, with their 200% Welcome Bonus being the best. This is a 7 day welcome offer that will expire if you don’t take advantage of it in a week. On a good note, you can claim this 200% bonus up to 7 times in the 7 days, but the terms are a little longwinded and confusing. Basically, you’ll receive a deposit match.
There are also weekly promotions that change sporadically. Special promotions are available, but just like with the weekly promotions, these are subject to—and do—change repeatedly with different prizes offered at different times.
Games at Aladdin’s Gold are run-of-the-mill. The only thing that makes them stand out from other casinos is the RTG platform. This platform provides realistic and secure gaming for a slew of slots and video poker, roulette, craps, blackjack, baccarat, and some specialty games like sic bo, keno and scratch cards. You’ll also find a few progressive machines with large jackpots.
Depositing or withdrawing money, like with any casino, is tricky unless you put in the research first. You never know which payment/withdrawal method has set new terms for your territory. Aladdin’s options include MasterCard/Visa, UseMyWallet, Eco Card, Click2Pay, eWalletXpress, wire transfer and Neteller.
Pros: Aladdin’s Gold caters to an American audience and their games are realistic and fun. There are also a few US-friendly deposit/withdrawal methods available so that Americans won’t have to jump through hoops.
Cons: The bonuses are a bit complicated, the support is basically nonexistent, and the entire site is slow to load because it’s set up in Flash format. It makes it look fancy, but unless you have a good browser it’s not going to load up well.
