Today, PartyCasino is owned by GVC Holdings PLC. The company is a leading e-gaming operator in both B2C and B2B markets and publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: GVC).
GVC owns several other gaming brands in sports, casino, poker and bingo. The core brands are: CasinoClub, Betboo, Sportingbet, bwin, partypoker, PartyCasino, Foxy Bingo and Gioco Digitale.
GVC is licensed to operate in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Denmark, Germany (Schleswig-Holstein), Spain, Malta, Denmark, UK, South Africa, the Dutch Caribbean and the certain states in the United States.
PartyCasino has operated in the state of New Jersey since March 2018 when it launched its online gaming operations with Borgata as its land-based partner. The operator is regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in accordance with the Casino Control Act N.J.S.A. 5:12-1 and its implementing regulations.
Let’s take a look at what PartyCasino has to offer.
PartyCasino Sign-up Process
The sign-up process is easy and similar to the experience you’ll find on other sites. Once you head to PartyCasino, you’ll see the sign-up button in the upper right-hand corner.
Clicking on that button will bring you to the first page of a four-step process.
Once you get the initial introduction out of the way, you’ll click next and head to this screen.
Asking for the last four digits of your social security number is standard practice. It’s part of the registration process which helps the site verify you are who you say you are. Don’t sketch out over this. Enter it, click next and move on.
Next, you’ll be asked to enter your address.
For the final step, you’ll need to enter security questions, check some boxes, and click create account. After about 30 seconds, you’ll be good to go. The site will immediately ask you if you want to add some funds and give it a go.
We’ll cover the deposit methods in detail down below. As you can see, there are plenty of different options to use. Overall, PartyCasino offers a really simple sign-up process which we have rated with five stars.
PartyCasino Deposit Options and Fees
Ready to deposit money into your PartyCasino account? You’ll find a big red deposit button in the upper right of the screen.
Clicking on that will bring up the screen with all of the different options you can use.
Nine different options is not too shabby, but we would like to see a PayPal option among the offerings. Clicking on the option you want to use will get the ball rolling. Before depositing, you should note that not all methods will be available to use for withdrawals once you strike it rich.For your convenience, the table down below tells how you can move funds around on PartyCasino.
|VIP Preferred (e-check)||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
|Online Bank Transfer||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
|Play +||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
|Mastercard||✅ Yes||❌ No||Free|
|Visa||✅ Yes||❌ No||Free|
|Neteller||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
|PayNearMe||✅ Yes||❌ No||Free|
|Skrill||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
|Borgata||✅ Yes||✅ Yes||Free|
Standard options such as online banking transfer, Visa, and Mastercard are always pretty popular with users. Neteller and Skrill are eWallet providers similar to PayPal, and they have grown in popularity in the online gaming community.
If you’re the type who likes to do business in person, PartyCasino has an agreement in place with the Borgata. Users can visit a casino cage at the Atlantic City property and handle their business. The Play+ option is convenient for users who may run into trouble having their transactions processed by their bank or card provider.
All in all, there are plenty of good options here. We have rated PartyCasino 4.5 out of 5 stars for deposit and withdrawal options.
PartyCasino does not offer sports betting, but the site operates under the GVC Holdings umbrella. The parent company has a number of labels on the sports side, including bwin.
Casino - Live Dealer Games
Since there’s no sports betting offered, then PartyCasino knocks it out of the park elsewhere, right? While we won’t call it a home run, the site does offer plenty of options on the casino and table game sides.
That includes in the live casino category, which you can easily find from the main menu.
Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, and Casino hold-em are among the offerings. Clicking on one of the options will bring you to the live games section. Once there, you’ll have another menu to use to switch back and forth among games if you wish.
While it’s good to see these games offered, we weren’t impressed with the online experience. Although technically ‘live dealer’ games, the experience at PartyCasino is lacking in comparison to other online operators.
Let’s start with the good news. PartyCasino offers a number of jackpot slots and exclusive titles. All together, there nine exclusive slot games and 10 in the jackpot category. Here they are for your reference. (PLease note: theres is some crossover for the two categories).
While we liked what we saw in the exclusive and jackpot categories, we weren’t overly impressed with the rest of the PartyCasino slot lineup.
You’ll probably find something that tickles your fancy a bit, so it’s not all bad news. In the crowded NJ online gaming space, many operators have made slot play a focus for online players. PartyCasino has done that to an extent, but we’d like to see more.
Good news: PartyCasino offers mobile betting. Bad news: We had to search online to find that out. For most sites, that little tidbit will be clearly listed at the bottom of the main page. As you’ll see, that’s just not the case on PartyCasino.
As for the mobile experience itself, the app itself only has two stars on iTunes. In our experience, it was similar to what we found on the PartyCasino website: A good platform, but not a great one.
You won’t have to look too far to find some help. Right at the bottom of the main screen, users will find the support section.
If you click on the big red button, you’ll be brought to another screen which further details the options available.
There’s no live chat option available, but scrolling to the bottom of the screen will bring you to a place to contact support directly.
A little further down from that, you’ll find all of the other contact information you’ll need.
On the plus side, we like how all of the direct contact information is displayed prominently. On the down side, the lack of a live chat option is a bit of a bummer. We’ll trust that emails are answered quickly, but a more immediate online support option would be a big plus.
PartyCasino has a dedicated section where users can learn more about how to play. At the bottom of the screen, click on where it says ‘game rules’.
That will bring up a whole new screen which lists out the various games and their rules.
Overall, this is a pretty good section with some useful information. However, we’d like to see it displayed more prominently while being a little easier to navigate.
The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for a simple place to play slots or some table games, then PartyCasino will do the trick. Sports bettors are out of luck. The site doesn’t exactly blow you away on the appearance front, but the software does the trick when you log in and play.We’d like to see a live chat support option, and improving the site navigation and layout would be a positive. All in all, PartyCasino makes for a solid place to visit, but those who are used to the bells and whistles of other operators may be disappointed.
