Black Diamond Casino is a relatively new online casino site that is also the sister site of Spartan Slots. The site is powered by the little known Top Brand software, a brand that doesn’t carry the automatic ‘wow’ that is often associated with brands such as Microgaming and Real Time Gaming. Regardless, we weren’t deterred by this and were determined to check out exactly what users can expect when they sign up to Black Diamond Casino. While the site has a range of positive elements, we were disappointed to find that there are a number of difficulties with the site that are a touch annoying and do affect the overall experience on the site.
Upon entering Black Diamond Casino users are greeted by what is a fairly standard online casino homepage and design. After around five seconds of looking around the site, a pop up window appears that overlays the homepage making it impossible to progress with the site unless you close the window. The popup is an advert for Spartan Slots and when a user closes the window, the site automatically prompts a download of the Black Diamond software. The incredibly annoying element of this feature is that it happens repeatedly with no opportunity to stop the download until it completes. By the time we had finished reviewing this site we had more than 50 separate downloads of the software that we had to manually delete. Regularly users are bound to be annoyed by this feature of the Black Diamond Casino.
That said, the site does have a lot of good features. Users can choose whether to play for free or play for real, being able to preview all of the games before they decide whether to stake real cash on them. The site has a relatively small group of online casino games, including all of the classics a user would expect, as well as a wide range of progressive jackpots and prizes available. Users can also expect a fairly decent deposit bonus of $999 when they join the site and make their first deposit (and a further $25 free bet with no need for a deposit). Members can also enjoy the benefits of the site’s VIP Club, which is spread across a number of levels (with the benefits improving as members climb through the levels).
While Black Diamond has many of the features most users would expect to find at an online casino site, it does have a relatively small collection of games and a rudimentary collection of bonuses. Unlike other sites we have reviewed, we get the impression that Black Diamond Casino isn’t about going further than a player would expect, but simply providing what is necessary.
