Ritz casino summary

By Simon Ho

This major ’bricks & mortar’ casino operator was one of the first to enter into the online casino scene. Ritz Club remains true to their exclusive clientele and offers some of the biggest bonuses with wagering requirements that will ward off any riff raff. High rollers will also appreciate the low edge VIP tables offering single deck Blackjack & VIP Roulette and particularly major players can request to have their deposit limits increased.

Love: Big, instant, no risk bonuses - VIP Roulette & Blackjack

Awards: Best for high rollers

Hate: High wagering quotas

Promotions rated 7 - Ritz casino

Not for the casual player
New users get an instant 100 sign up bonus ). However the wagering requirement for the full 100 bonus is 4,000 (40x bonus), so this is not a bonus for the casual player.

Existing users can also get a very generous 100 monthly bonus by depositing 100 and wagering 4000.

Useful Reward Points
Although offered by many other casinos, the kind of players attracted to Ritz may actually make use of the loyalty points awarded here. Whilst it only works out at 1p for every 10 wagered, high rollers should be able to quickly accumulate and redeem these points because they are awarded based on wagers rather than wins or loses. Some games such as multi-player roulette offer returns of 3p for every 10 wagered.

Good playing conditions
Featuring just over 70 games, the Ritz Club does away with most of the Las Vegas style slot and video poker variants to concentrate on the ’proper’ casino games to create a gentleman’s club. There are a couple of less common casino games, but by far the main benefit of playing Ritz Club games is in their level of realism. Games are run using the superb Cryptologic software and the casino features low edge variants of the most popular table games.

Low edge VIP tables
Ritz Club offers a VIP single deck version of it’s Atlantic City Blackjack game and VIP Roulette which features the French ’en prision’ rules where half of your outside bets are returned when a zero is spun in. So far it is the only casino we have come across to allow bets on Roulette to count towards your bonus wagering quotas. It is not quantity but quality that counts and we are very impressed by the games offering at Ritz. Unfortunately it’s for players with deep pockets.
