|Software & Games:|
Las Vegas USA’s strapline says they’ve been in business since 1999.
And it sure looks like it.
Their site’s not impressive. It reminds us of websites we saw when we were first starting to use the internet more than a decade ago.
But looks aren’t everything. Looks have nothing to do with a casino’s games, promotions, banking options or how they run their business.
That last point is important. There are plenty of ‘pretty’ online casinos who only exist to take your deposits and …run as fast as they can with it in the opposite direction.
But not Las Vegas USA. Googling them doesn’t return many negative results. Or about their parent company, the Main Street Group.
This is good news for Americans. It’s tough to find a US-friendly casino who doesn’t have a shady background.
However, that’s not to say these guys are perfect. They have faults and have made mistakes. We’ll tell you what we dug up later in our review. But you should know now these findings don’t stop us from recommending them.
So, if you’re in the market for a trustworthy online casino with a decent selection of games and promotions, we invite you to read the rest of our review.
What Casino Games Can You Play?
One of our biggest complaints about Las Vegas USA is how they only offer a casino. Unlike many of the sites we’ve reviewed here, you’re not going to find a sportsbook, poker room or bingo hall.
But, you know what? That’s okay. Not everybody wants those options.
So what you’ll find instead are more than 120 casino games and variations from Real Time Gaming.
Here are all the games you can play:
Though these don’t look as good as BetSoft’s 3D slots, there are still plenty of fun and entertaining slot machines to play. They also have several progressive jackpots.
Many of their progressive jackpots routinely reach the multiple 6-figure level. Some even reach $1+ million. What’s even more exciting is how often their jackpots hit. We’re looking at a RTG progressive jackpot tracker now, and we’re seeing almost half a dozen jackpots that have hit within the past 24 hours.
One of the things we like most about Real Time Gaming are their variations. You’ll find a hearty selection of table games, but also a solid 5-7+ blackjack variations at any RTG casino. They often have more blackjack games than any other US-facing online casino (who’s using only one software provider).
- Bonus Bingo
- Roaring Twenties Bingo
Like the blackjack games, one of the strongest points of RTG’s software is the sheer number of variations they offer. While many casinos, like RealBet.eu, think they can get away with 3-5 video poker games, RTG blows them out of the water with more than 15 different titles.
While there, we also checked out Las Vegas USA’s mobile website. It’s arguably more slick and better looking than their main website. They don’t say exactly what mobile games you can play, but it’s safe to say they offer the same as other Real Time Gaming casinos (like Planet 7). This means they have 3-4 dozen games – most are slots, while there’ll be blackjack, video poker and a few random table games mixed in.
Las Vegas USA offers many promotions for both new and existing customers. Here are some details about their current offers.
400% Bonus – Get a 400% match up to $10,000. There’s no max cash out. This offer is valid for slots, scratch cards and keno.
150% Cashable Bonus – Get a 150% match bonus up to $3,000. This is for slots, blackjack, video poker and others. You can cash this out once you clear it.
If you play multi-hand video poker, any 21 variation, video poker or Caribbean stud, the wager requirements will increase to 90x your deposit PLUS bonus.
This is absolutely crazy, but not unheard of. We’d probably pass on this and instead go for the 400% slots bonus. It’s a bit more reasonable.
150% Blackjack Bonus – Get a 150% match bonus for blackjack and other games like video poker, slots and others. There’s no max cash out.
Double Match Bonus – Get a 200% double match bonus up to $7,000. Use this for slots, scratch cards and keno.
The rollover for their offers is 40x your deposit plus bonus in valid games. You’ll want to read their terms before accepting any offer to make sure you know what those valid games are, and if any games you want to play will adhere to the 40x rollover, or possibly the 90x rollover mentioned above.
One problem with this chart is they don’t make it clear what it takes for a customer to go from Regular to Silver to Gold and so on. Our educated guess is it comes down to how active you are – how much you’ve wagered at their casino.
MST Gift Cards – You’ll get an additional $50 if you use MST gift cards.
Las Vegas USA also offers weekly and daily promotions. Those include:
- Weekly Promotion – Get a $175 or $225 bonus up to 3 different times.
- Matchup Monday – Get a $200 bonus up to 10 times
- Cash Back Monday – Get a $500 bonus.
- MST Promotion – Get a $50 or $75 promotion twice every day.
- Wild Wednesday – Get a $300 bonus.
- Thirsty Thursday – Get a $95 bonus.
- Freaky Friday – Get a $200 bonus up to 10 times
- Thank God Saturday – Get a $95 bonus
- Super Sunday – Get a $150 bonus up to 6 times.
Exact amounts and any additional restrictions (how often you can use a bonus, for example) will depend on your account activity and if you have a validated credit card on file. They cover this in their terms. You can also contact support with any questions you have.
For existing players, they offer the following:
- Monthly bonuses
- Seasonal bonuses
- Birthday bonuses
- Anniversary bonuses
- $1,000 weekly reward
- Quick verification program
- Loyalty program
- Refer-a-friend promo – get $20 for every friend who deposits $50 or more
They have a comp point program, too. This is a simple program. For every $10 you spend you’ll receive 1 point. You’ll receive 1 point for every $15 spent playing blackjack and video poker. For every 100 points you earn you can redeem for $1 in cash back.
They have a monthly comp point bonus, too. The more comps you redeem, the more additional bonuses you can earn. These are based on the points you earned in the previous month.
Here are the options you can use to fund your account (option | limits | fees):
- Visa/MasterCard | $25-$500 | 0
- MST Gift Cards | $20-$500 | 0
- Neteller | $10-$2,500 | 0 | Not for US players.
- Money Orders | $50-$1,000 | Fees covered on deposits of $100+.
Your cash out options include (option | limits | fees):
- Check (by regular mail) | $100-$399 | 0
- Check (by courier) | $400-$2,500 | 0
- ACH Direct Deposit | $100-$1,250 | 0
- Money Order | $100-$2,500 | 0
- Neteller | $10-$5,000 | 0
A couple important notes:
They say they process payments daily. However, it can take up to 2 weeks to process your payment. This is a long time. However, we’re confident you will be paid. So it’s a minor inconvenience, and not a sign of bad things to come.
They don’t charge fees on deposits or cash outs. The one exception is if you make a deposit by money order and fail to meet the $100 minimum. However, if you can’t come up with the extra $50 for the money order, we recommend waiting until you can swing it, or use a different method instead.
The lack of fees is great to see when seemingly every other US-facing casino is nickel and diming their customers with banking fees.
This does come with tradeoffs, though. For example, the minimum cash out is $100 and this has a low max limit. If you want a bigger check, you’ll need to wait until you have more to cash out.
But this is hardly a problem. It’s more of an inconvenience.
The only other thing to add is we’d like to see them add bitcoin as an option.
They’re available 24/7. You can contact them by:
- Live chat
- Email at: email@example.com
We’ve checked multiple places and cannot find any scam or scandal claims, let alone any complaints. And they’re not on any of the popular (and trustworthy) blacklists.
We did find two comments/complaints from more than a year ago. These were shared on another review.
This one is about Las Vegas USA:
This player says he/she won $10,000. They say Las Vegas USA gave them the runaround about sending them their payment, and ultimately agreed to send them their winnings in installments. However, the player couldn’t reach them after the first payment was made. We assume they got this figured out, though, otherwise why wouldn’t they comment again or post about their problem in a forum?
Then there was a similar issue against a different Main Street casino, Slots Plus. This person also struggled to get ahold of staff:
Those are the only “problems” we could find about an online casino who’s been online for more than the past decade.
Las Vegas USA looks like a great choice if you’re looking for an online casino.
The biggest flaws we see is Las Vegas USA not having a larger or more diverse selection of games. Real Time Gaming’s been around forever. So, there’s a good chance that old timers have seen these games a time or two.
That’s about it. They have a solid selection of games and promotions. Oh, and they’re recommended by the Wizard of Odds. If you’re familiar with his site, you know he doesn’t endorse every casino he’s reviewed.
The bottom line – if you’re looking for an online casino to join, we think Las Vegas USA should be at the top of your list.
