Virtual City: Not Recommended
Virtual City is not recommended!.
Virtual City Casino
Players from United Kingdom are welcome at Virtual City casino.
Review last updated - June 2017
One of the army of Microgaming online casinos that fall under the Casino Rewards banner, Virtual City is currently associated with a group that has had some notable player issues worthy of consideration before signing up.
Virtual City casino is part of the Casino Rewards group.
Alongside this, the Casino Rewards group appear to have a very liberal interpretation of what should be considered spam, regularly bombarding players who have signed up to one of their properties with promotional mail for their other venues (in several reported cases, in multiple languages and with large numbers of mails arriving at the same time). This sites receive daily promotional emails from Casino Reward operators or their affiliates despite never having signed up using this address at ANY casino or affiliate newsletter.
Casino Rewards are also know to aggressively pursue anti-bonus abuse policies, regularly restricting players access to bonuses automatically the moment they make a withdrawal that would put them ahead of the casino. It should be noted that all Casino Rewards bonuses are credited as comp points that you then have to convert into a bonus. One of our reviewers report not being informed that they had had their bonus privileges suspended and only becoming aware after receiving a personal invitation to participate in a reload bonus through their email, depositing for said bonus only to find that they could not redeem the comp points into the promised bonus and then facing requests for additional identification before they could withdraw. Essentially our reviewer was encouraged to deposit via a bonus only to not receive the offered bonus and then face having their deposit held by the casino for an extended duration while they completed additional (over and above standard) security measures before returning the deposit that they were misled into making.
In another instance, when approached by a player on the GPWA forum Casino Rewards confiscated funds without having anything in their terms or conditions to justify their actions. Upon further discussion it became clear that the player in question was playing in a fashion that would be unprofitable for the casino, however there was nothing in the casinos terms and conditions to prohibit the actions of the player which is evidenced by the adjustments that were made subsequent to their reps conversation with us. While advantage players are obviously an undesirable group to casinos, as long as they have broken no specific terms and conditions confiscating their funds is absolutely unethical.
Overall, the Casino Rewards venues do not appear to have the massive volume of complaints that really out of touch casinos do, but between asking for Notarized ID, promotional policies that would cross the line which we would consider spamming and confiscating funds when no terms had actually been breached (essentially a spirit of the bonus confiscation) there are far more reliable Microgaming venues which you can play with.

VirtualCity 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. VirtualCity currently use eCOGRA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
- Malta Gaming Authority - In our experience the MGA is the best regulatory authority in terms of the management of player complaints. Their complaints team is open and cooperative in the discussion of player issues and we've managed to resolve a number of credible player issues working with the MGA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

Virtual City casino publish the house edge (RTP) information for all of their slots games.
Virtual City casino do offer a comp point program. You earn comp points in a central balance any time you wager at any of the Casino Rewards venues and can redeem said comp points at any venue. Any redemptions are treated as bonus with a 30xbonus wagering requirement before you can withdraw.
Any redemptions are treated as bonus with a 30xbonus wagering requirement before you can withdraw.
Points are earned at the following rates:
- Slots - 1 point for every $10 wagered
- Table Games - 1 point for ever $20 wagered
- Roulette - 1 point for ever $20 wagered
- Video Poker* - 1 point for ever $100 wagered
- Blackjack - 1 point for ever $100 wagered
- *All Aces Video Poker - Does not earn points
Comp points can be converted to bonuses at a rate of 100 points to £1.
This system is comparable for slots play to the standard Playtech comp point system except that comp points are redeemed as bonuses rather than cash and is less valuable for other game types.
There are several good reasons that we don't feel comfortable recommending the Casino Rewards group, but the instance of retroactively enforcing new terms to justify seizing a player's win is nothing short of unethical.
