Magic Box Casino
Magic Box Casino
The Magic Box casino is one of many online casino sites ran by Global Gaming Net and owned by ElectraWorks Limited who are, in turn, part of the Bwin Group. The site operates on software provided exclusively by Playtech and is regulated by the gambling commissions in the United Kingdom, for UK players, and Gibraltar, for all other offered countries. What tricks does the site have up its sleeves for players who create their online accounts?
Games at Magic Box Casino
Players at the Magic Box casino can access the games in two separate ways with desktop and browser based software. The desktop client can be downloaded from the prompt that appears when first opening the site or via several download buttons on the site, while the browser based instant play casino can be launched from the website homepage.
The instant play software is nice and slick to use with the filters on the left hand side of the software easy to browse through and the game lists that appear when hovering over the game filter appear without any lag and clicking into a game sees it open crisply. The overall experience of the software is very positive.
To top this players are able to select from a number of slot games, with both Video Slots and Classic Slots available, table and card games, video poker, arcade games, scratch cards and a live dealer casino too. These are added to by an Asian games section, multi-player games, progressive jackpots and the ability to view new games, player favourites and the most recently played games.
There are more than 200 games available to play with the slot games the most populated section with Playtech's full catalogue available to access, including their headlining network linked Marvel Jackpot games that offer players the chance to win almost half a million Euros. There are a number of progressive jackpot games offering even bigger prizes with, at the time of writing, Monty Python's Spamalot offering more than €2.5m and Sweet Party's jackpot at almost three million Euros.
For those that prefer something a little different there is a wide array of virtual, live dealer and multi-player versions of casino classic games such as roulette, blackjack, baccarat and casino hold'em as well as craps, Sic Bo and a number of casino card games too. Players can also select from a number of video poker variants, including Jacks or Better and Joker Poker, as well as a large variety of scratch card, virtual sports and arcade games if they're looking for something a little more care free and less serious.
The download version of the software offers a similar fast paced and slick experience at moving through the software while also offering more games for players across all of the same game filters as those available in the instant play software. While both casinos provide a similar experience the extra games will likely make this client the most favoured version for those who are capable of downloading this software.
Registration at Magic Box Casino
Players are prompted to register an account on the first occasion that they open the download software or, if they choose not to do this, players can sign up by clicking the Create Account button in either software to open the registration form. Once the personal and address details have been entered as well as choosing a password and favoured currency players are issued with a randomly generated username to log into and use their Magic Box casino account. Upon their first login players are also prompted to create a screen alias for use on the site.
Deposit and Withdrawal methods at Magic Box Casino
The Magic Box casino offers a large array of options for players to fund their accounts on-site with a wide range of credit/debit cards, eWallets and pre-paid options provided in addition to plenty of localised deposit options for players around the globe to deposit directly from their bank account.
While getting funds onto a Magic Box casino account is simple, straightforward and easy it is not as easy to claim funds back again. The site takes up to four days from the time of request for the funds to be processed and sent, while there is a much lower amount of withdrawal methods available than can be used to deposit. Visa and the eWallet methods can be used to cash out winnings on-site, but should players have used a different deposit method then they must choose from bank draft or bank wire to withdraw their funds. As well as this the maximum withdrawal amount per month is a meagre £6,500 or currency equivalent.
Promotion at Magic Box Casino
After they've created an account at the Magic Box casino players can avail of a welcome bonus totalling £/$/€567 across their first three deposits. These work out at a 100% bonus up to £/$/€115 and two 50% bonuses up to £/$/€225 and £/$/€227. The funds can be earned out by playing through the deposit and bonus funds 25x times and the usual game type restrictions apply on rolling over the funds.
On top of this players can avail of a Refer-a-Friend, VIP and comp point programs as well as a number of daily, weekly and monthly promotions, all of which are listed in the convenient online promotions calendar. The site also offers deposit bonuses with certain deposit methods with NETeller, Skrill, Laser, EntroPay and Nordea all offering a 100% the first deposit a player's second month on-site, while Click2Pay, ClickandBuy, Instadebit, Webmoney, Paysafecard and UKash offer 15% on each and every deposit made. None of these bonuses can be withdrawn from the site and will be removed from withdrawals.
Magic Box Casino security
With the site operating under licenses from two of the more strict regulators in the industry in the Gibraltar and UK Gambling Commissions players should be filled with confidence about the practices of the site. Add to this a policy of transparency about their security practices with details of their handling of sensitive data, including the use of a 128-bit SSL encryption on this information, and their publishing of monthly game reviews by auditors Technical Systems Testing allows players to see exactly what is going on.
However, despite all of this, we did find the fact that our password was provided in our welcome email worrying, but with the generated username not being provided anywhere except on a site pop-up screen after registration this is relatively secure.
Magic Box Casino customer support
The Magic Box casino offers a 24/7 support service with players able to have their questions and queries answered at any time of the day or night by email, live chat support, telephone and fax. The team are both helpful and friendly, and can be contacted through either version of the software directly or via the Magic Box website 24/7 Support page.
