Top Casinos: United Kingdom

Virgin Casino

Players from United Kingdom are welcome at Virgin casino.

Overview

Review last updated – July 2017

Previously owned and operated by Richard Branson Virgin group, the Virgin Games brand has recently been bought over by the GameSys group and as such is now a member of a network of properties including Caesar’s casino (as in the online venue of the Caesar’s bricks and mortar properties) and some of the biggest bingo rooms currently in operation.

Trustworthiness

 - 3 / 10

All six of the reviewers who work regularly for this site have held accounts with Virgin Casino for many years. The few issues that have ever arisen have been dealt with in a very swift and friendly fashion.

The Gamesys group have repeatedly been non-cooperative with complaints posted at this and other major dispute mediation portals.

For references see GameSys Player Issues

Only casinos carrying ThePOGG Deposit Guarantee Seal can score higher than 8/10.

You can see the latest updates to Virgin casino's terms and conditions here.

Licensing

 - 8 / 10

Virgin hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. Virgin currently use eCogra. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Gibraltar Gaming Commission - The GGC is one of the more reputable online gaming regulators, but we are aware of a serious software issue where they failed to uphold their own technical standards. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
