Blackjack Ballroom Review

Downloadable Microgaming Casino

Casinomeister's Verdict

Blackjack Ballroom is a pretty solid casino – they have been around for donkey years, and they have a pretty good reputation at Casinomeister. Unfortunately, they were removed for pushing a promotion that goes against our standards (noted above). Other than that, most players won’t have any issues. Just don’t play your winnings back – and don’t take bonuses that entice you to do so.

First Impression

Blackjack Ballroom is a Microgaming Viper powered casino – which means that you can either download their software, or play in your browser. Me, I’m and old timer and prefer the download version. Why? Because their their Microgaming games are pretty spectacular, and if you are a Video Poker fan, Microgaming VP is the best you are going to find online. In fact, it rivals what you can find in your typical land based casino. They can boast to up to 54 video poker games.

Blackjack Ballroom is licensed by both the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Players have a pretty good chance of having their voices heard. Unlike the UKGC that refers players to other third parties for complaints, both of these licensing entities offer player support. Besides that, Blackjack Ballroom has a fantastic casino rep who visits our forum on a daily basis – and she has been working for the Casino Rewards group since the early days of online gaming. Online casino businesses that can keep the same employees for over a decade are rare, so they are doing something right.

Unfortunately, the marketing division of this Blackjack Ballroom decided to run a misguided and predatory promotion offering a 25% bonus to reverse your winnings. This violates our standards for Accredited Casinos:

Will not aggressively entice players to reverse cash withdrawals with bonuses or other incentives.

So they were removed from the Accredited Section and placed into the Grey Zone.

Other than that, they are a pretty good operation. Sad to see them in the GZ.

Pros

  • Solid Licensing jurisdiction

  • Microgaming Download (best Video Poker)

  • Extremely well managed

Cons

  • Payouts are a little slow

  • Weekly withdrawal limits $4000

  • Predatory promotions

BONUSES AND PROMOTIONS

As Blackjack Ballroom is now a ROGUE online casino, we’re not going to be talking about the bonuses and promotions they offer. They have predatory terms and conditions attached to all of their bonuses and promotions, including their main welcome bonus, so it’s simply not worth the risk of claiming one; there are much better online casinos with far better bonuses and promotions too.

BANKING AND PAYMENT METHODS

Blackjack Ballroom accepts various payment methods, including most major debit and credit cards and a few e-wallets. Their payout speeds can be pretty slow, however.

Withdrawal Speed

Responsible gaming

 

The online casino has three responsible gambling tools; a deposit limit, self-exclusion, and a time-out function.

Customer support

Blackjack Ballroom Casino does their absolute best to make it look like they have a versatile and reliable customer support portal. If we weren’t aware of the fact that this online casino is Rogue, we might even be tempted to agree. However, the customer support team is not only relatively unfriendly and unhelpful, but if you ever run into serious issues, they may well ignore you or kick you off the live chat conversation.

If you manage to connect to a responsive customer support agent, they will almost certainly ask you to email your query so that they are not put on the spot and can take as long as they want to reply. This is a pretty common practice from Rogue online gambling operations like Blackjack Ballroom Casino — another good reason to steer well clear from these guys.

Website Experience and Features

Their website is dated and isn’t the fastest, which definitely shows. While it still offers Microgaming’s downloadable software client, it too is behind the times and dated.

Providers

Blackjack Ballroom is a Microgaming-powered online casino, and this means that all of its games are, indeed, from Microgaming. However, today, you’ll also be able to enjoy casino games from Microgaming’s subsidiary companies, so expect to see video slots and casino table games from names like JFTW. Below, we’ll look at some of the different games the online casino offers.

Slots

Video slots are, by far, the most popular offering at most online casinos, and Blackjack Ballroom offers Microgaming’s full video slot range.

Thunderstruck II is a sequel to the original Thunderstruck, and it’s one of Microgaming’s most successful video slots. On the other hand, Thunderstruck II utilizes a 243-ways-to-win system rather than a set payline system, which not only improves the winning potential but also eliminates the need to worry over symbols landing in specific positions. There are a total of five different bonuses and features in the game, so there’s plenty to keep an eye out for. We highly recommend giving it a shot if you haven’t already!

Live Dealer Games

The online casino doesn’t currently offer any live dealer games.

Table Games and Video Poker

The casino table games you’ll find at Blackjack Ballroom Casino are relatively standard, and you’ll be able to play a small variety of blackjack, roulette, baccarat and video poker games. There are also some poker-based casino table games like 3-Card Poker.

Progressive jackpots

Naturally, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot games are a big hit at this online casino. You’ll be able to play titles like Mega Moolah, the video slot which holds the current world record for the biggest jackpot win in history!
