Even a decade or so ago, the mental image you might have conjured up of a poker player would be of someone with considerable sartorial elegance. Perhaps it is the suave image of James Bond – played by Daniel Craig – in his formal evening suit, bow tie and jacket playing for high stakes in Casino Royale that brings up this sort of preconception. There can be little doubt that some of the poshest casinos in Europe require anyone who is in attendance to dress smartly. Even with that consideration, few modern gaming houses would turn their noses up if you were to head in looking reasonably presentable. [Read more…]
I’m not going to suggest that all of us are lazy, but can we really argue that we love things that make our lives more convenient? Think about it – how often have you been unable to find the remote for the TV, and just ended up watching whatever channel you were stuck on? [Read more…]
Both traditional land-based casinos and the online variety, like Platinum Play Online Casino, have the same goal of providing a quality gaming experience to their customers, but let’s be honest, if the average Joe showed up at one of the big Monte Carlo casinos dressed in a ragged t-shirt, cargo shorts and a pair of sandals, they would be shown the exit in very short order. That is where online casinos have the edge in my opinion: there is no need to look or dress a certain way in order to gain access, and they will even let you play for free if you don’t have any money. Try doing that in Vegas!
Many of the bigger online casinos have website portals that cater to individual countries; for example, Platinum Play has their main site, as well as three others that are geared towards Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, but your log-in will work across all those sites and you don’t have to play in the site that corresponds to your country of origin.
Online casinos are designed to appeal to the global community, and with that in mind everyone is welcome to come and play, or just kick the tires and check out all the slots, table games, progressive games and online tournaments that we have to offer. The only way anyone will ever be denied access to an online casino is if they are under age, have a gambling problem or are playing in a country where it is illegal to do so, but otherwise everyone is welcome.
Platinum Play prides itself on giving new and regular players the same high standard of service. They believe that every customer is valuable, no matter how much or how little they play inside their virtual doors. The feeling at Platinum Play is that everybody is welcome to play, and win!
Progressive jackpot games have been a big draw for casinos for many years now, but for the most part those big money pots have been confined to the slot machines. Everyone has seen the big LED ticker above the banks of slots, that big number getting bigger and bigger by the second as more and more players join in the rush to try and snag it.
This is great stuff for those that love to spin the reels, but what about the humble table player who really couldn’t care less about playing the slots? For them, the big money jackpot may be a huge draw, but a collection of 7’s and fruits does nothing to stimulate them like the turn of a card or the sound that little plastic ball bouncing around the roulette wheel. The good news for those guys, as well as us gals, is that the online casinos have finally realized that the progressive jackpots shouldn’t just be for the one armed bandit lovers; table players should be able to get in on the action as well.
Players at the Platinum Play online casino now have the option of playing 4 exciting new progressive table games, with jackpots that will make their heads spin faster than that roulette wheel.
There are two progressive poker games to choose from, with Poker Ride and Cyberstud Poker being the ones to play if a player wants to nail the jackpot. There are now way more than 21 reasons to play blackjack, and at Platinum Play, Triple 7’s Blackjack is the game where the big money can be scored. I mention roulette earlier, and that too is now included in the progressive action. Roulette Royale is the name, and winning a huge chunk of cash is the goal of the game.
If you are new to the online casino games, then why not try out with of those great progressive by using some of the house‘s money. Sign up for an account and use the great bonus options for first timer’s to test out the games, and just maybe walk away a big winner.
