Established in 1999, Captain Cook’s Casino is one of the oldest and best-known online casinos currently accepting US players. With a vast collection of games (with more than 400 online versions of casino classics to choose from) and a range of additional features, Captain Cook’s Casino is a firm favorite in the online casino market. Powered by Microgaming software (itself a leader in online gambling and gaming software provision), Captain Cook’s Casino offers players the opportunity to play for a range of big jackpots from the comfort of their own homes. What’s more, Captain Cook’s Casino is also the winner of a number of prestigious online casino awards, including, amongst others, ‘Best Online Casino’ and ‘Best Online Casino Service’. With such a great pedigree, we would urge all users to give this site a go, not least because there’s also a golden handshake when you sign up to become a member!
Captain Cook’s Casino has taken an alternative approach to customer bonuses that we think deserves some consideration here. Instead of receiving a deposit bonus (of say 100% up to $100, or so on) on a user’s first deposit, they instead receive $500 of free casino money to play with for one hour. Within this hour, the player can try out any of the casino’s games for free using this money, thus being able to get a complete feel for how the site operates and what the games are like. At the end of the hour, if the player has actually won any money, they are able to keep their winnings as a bonus in their account (once they open it).
Although this is a great idea, as it gives all players an opportunity to get to know Captain Cook’s Casino properly before committing to actually joining the site, there is a cap on earnings from this free period not only through the hour limit but also in monetary terms, as users are only allowed to keep the first $100 of their winnings (if they are lucky enough to win more than that!) Furthermore, this $500 free is the only cash bonus that is offered to users throughout their membership. Whilst members can collect comp points, this is normally offered in conjunction with ongoing bonuses, meaning we can’t help but feel that Captain Cook’s Casino doesn’t offer its users as much of a good deal as other sites in our reviews.
The games themselves however, are excellent, with users being able to select from a menu of high-quality, well-crafted Microgaming games. These games spread all genres including blackjack, slots, roulette, craps, table games and more, and allow members to really experience the thrill of a real casino from home. The graphics quality and speed of these games is excellent, both in download and instant play formats. Users will also be pleased to learn that with more than $4 Million in jackpots available on the site, including a number of great progressive jackpots, there’s many opportunities to win big on the site, too!
Although we did find the bonus scheme a little disappointing, we were still impressed with Captain Cook’s Casino as it succeeded in providing great quality games without being too gimmicky.
