Red Stag is relatively new on the market. It has been working since 2015. So, by now we may judge from the first impression only, but the impression is really favorable so far. The casino is operated under Curacao license and thus it’s open to players from all over the world. There are some exceptions, though. Canadian, for instance, can’t register at the casino or gamble for real money there. Also, some European countries are excluded from those lucky ones who can join in the fun. But Red Stag is US friendly. Which is huge, considering all the regulations and restrictions of the American market.
The casino is available in three main forms. You may play it from your browser in an instant play mode. There is also a downloadable client. It allows you to log on to the casino right from your laptop and enjoy the full range of gaming options there. Players, who enjoy on the go gambling, may download an app on any mobile device of their choice.
Red Stag slots are truly unique. The casino uses a technology suit provided by WGS. For those who don’t remember, those guys are real dinosaurs in the biz. Established as far back as the late 1990s they have been through a lot. But their games are well-known and well-reviewed. Now they are undergoing some major update to suit the needs of sophisticated modern gamblers.
The selection of the machines here is quite moderate. There are, of course, slots. Three-reel and video slot machines as well as just about a dozen progressives. Apart from the slots, there are some poker and blackjack machines along with some more table and speciality games. You may have our word for it, no matter how many years you have been gambling online, you probably never came across WGS machines. They are not mind-blowing, but they are different. You may enjoy playing in fun mode for as long as you want. But no punter is ever satisfied with it, right? So let’s figure out the banking options at Red Stag.
Payments are made via credit cards like Visa or MasterCard. The Skrill and Neosurf are also available. So as Sofort and Neteller. Paysafe Card may be used as well. Red Stag is Bitcoin friendly, so use it or Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin for banking. There are no fees imposed on deposits. The limits here depend on the payment method. They may be anywhere from $1 to $5,000.
Withdrawals may be made via a check, Neteller, any cryptocurrency option or Skrill. They are usually done within 72 business hours. The first cash out takes longer. But that’s not only at Red Stag, it’s like this everywhere. Your account would have to be verified, and that is a time-consuming procedure. Withdrawals are limited here to $2,000 or $2,500 per week. But this depends on the method, so better check this information on the site or ask the customer support. There are no fees for withdrawals except for the checks. Any bank involved operations are subject to a fee as we all know well. Here, check cashouts are charged $30. Mind, they are also the longest. You might end up waiting for your money for seven business days.
At Red Stag there are over a dozen promo options. The welcome bonus here is a $2,500 match with 500 spins on the first seven down payments, and it looks incredibly awesome. Those who don’t like free money with strings attached, may enjoy an up to 25% cashback. Also, there is a great weekly Wednesday promo of up to 200% booster for your bankroll. Unlike the previous offer, Chaser bonus may be redeemed with every deposit. Every first and third Monday in the month, you are entitled to free points giveaway depending on your loyalty status. Wednesday is a cashback time, when you get your martini cashback on the losses of the previous week. A great Thursday Bloody Mary promo allows you to get a 85% deposit matching bonus. Saturday is the day for Sex on the Beach 100% match. Also, there is a great promo for the Goblin vs. Leprechaun slot. Spin it and get up to $800 in bonus cash with 180 spins. There are also some special promos for users of Neosurf and Bitcoin for payments as well as some exclusive mobile promos.
Apart from regular promotions the casino features plenty of game tournaments. Choose a game you wish to play and join in. The entry fee is usually rather low: just a couple of bucks. Some tournaments are free.
Unless stated otherwise, to qualify for the bonus you need to buy at least $25 worth of chips. All the promotions hold standard playthrough requirements you have to meet before being allowed to cash your wins out. Usually, it’s a moderate 20 times rollover. But the welcome bonus as well as some other promos come with a 30x playthrough condition. Free spins hold a 40x rollover requirement so wins you have made with them could be cashed out. Slots, Keno and Bingo games count 100% towards meeting the requirements, while table games count only 35%. To make things worse, poker and blackjack count only 10%. Wagering requirements can’t be met playing baccarat or craps or any roulette. You also can’t play any tournament games to meet the playthrough terms. Those rules are standard, but before accepting the offer read the terms associated with it. The cashout for nearly all bonuses is limited to $160.
Red Stag has a great and really elaborate loyalty program. It carries on the main theme of the casino. Each loyalty stage is named after some spirit. So there are Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka, Whiskey and Champaign clubs. Each loyalty level comes with tailored bonuses, promotions and cashback. Earn comp points with every wager and move up the loyalty level.
We really enjoyed reviewing this casino. First it is the theme and design. Choosing bourbon flavor for the main theme is a bit bold but it works. All the alcohol induced promos and loyalty levels look just appropriate and even classy, but not overdone. WGS software is also quite a catch. They still have some old-timer fans. Maybe there are more of them to come as we are witnessing the revival of the soft thanks to Red Stag. Bonus offers here are tempting, and the choice is great, but the wagering terms are rather strict like pretty much in any other casino. We certainly didn’t enjoy the max cashout of only $160. But on the whole, we didn’t uncover any major complaints from the users or scams and that is certainly a major pro. So, to spin or not to spin? If you look past the bonus clearing terms, if you ask us, Red Stag looks pretty legit.
