Go back in time, and enjoy the experience of the US 1920’s. Back in the day, the scene of playing a few real money action games was discrete, exhilarating and of course exciting. Casino games were banned during that time, so playing was kept underground. The term “SpeakEasy” was coined to mean, speak quietly when inquiring about joining a gaming parlor to play a few games. The theme of El Royale epitomizes perfectly the era. With an extremely well thought out layout, and clean high definition graphics, the El Royale lobby is one of the best out there.
Cleverly woven into the layout is a theme, which is a delight to read before getting started with the real money gaming action. The ambiance is 5/5!
But let’s not dwell on the theme and layout any further and now talk about the Terms and Conditions and transparency. The Terms and Conditions are easily accessible on their site. Unlike other sites, they can be found and it isn’t overly complex. Standard Terms and Conditions include Wagering Requirements on bonuses, not allowing multiple player accounts and deposit and withdrawal amounts and limits. What can take some time, is that there a quite a few bonus types. This can be seen as a positive in that a bonus is out there that will meet your needs, but it does take time to sort through them and to find which one is the most suitable.
Leading into bonuses, we feel their leading Welcome Bonus of 250% up to $12,500 is one of the best (if not the best) out there. It is super competitive, and though you might find a better bonus with another online casino, the fact that El Royale is one of the most trusted would make me lean more towards choosing El Royale. The only other bonus, which could be just as competitive (at the time of writing) is with Vegas Casino Online which is 400% up to $10,000. Arguably a 400% match is much better than 250%, but there are other limiting factors to Vegas Casino Online such as a withdrawal time of 2 weeks which turns us off it a little bit. Having said that, El Royale has so many other bonus types, that comparisons can be difficult to come to a definitive conclusion as to which is better. Look through them and pick the one that suits you the best.
El Royale has partnered with RealTime Gaming (RTG) to power their platform. This excludes Live Dealers, which is a more recent addition to the El Royale Casino. RealTime Gaming is a long standing software gaming company that originated in the US and was subsequently bought out and relocated offshore. RTG is well respected and is highly trusted with using reliable Random Number Generator (RNG) algorithm to provide real fair gambling odds. As with all reputable software providers, their software is audited by independent third parties.
The variety of gaming at El Royale (to be honest) is not mind blowing, but it’s by no means limited either. We would consider that it’s just enough for someone new to the online gaming world to sufficiently have an enjoyable experience. Live Dealer games are available as a recent addition to the games library, which includes blackjack, roulette, baccarat and Super 6 (there are no other live dealers games such as craps). For those who have already been around the traps and are looking for something specific, we recommend first reviewing their gaming selection to ensure it’s what you are looking for.
Upon playing the games, you will find that RTG have created quality and well integrated gaming. The functionality is intuitive and there weren’t any noticeable glitches when we played (which was through the downloadable installation to the PC). They do recommend, if you wish to play direct from the web, to play via a Google Chrome browser. Although, games can be played on any browser it is widely known that native HTML coding works best on Chrome. (This is common among all online casinos and any gaming for that matter).
Deposit and Withdrawal methods are relatively limited, but then again for US players, you aren’t going to find any other online casino that can provide anything that is dramatically different. El Royale’s deposit methods include the stock standard – credit cards, prepaid cards, Instant Gift Card and Neosurf plus Bitcoin but nothing else. Their Withdrawal methods are even further refined to only credit cards, Bitcoin and bank wire. We believe, this is one of the drawbacks of playing with El Royale. It’s not a big deal, but please check first that having limited depositing and withdrawal options does not hinder you.

Processing of deposits and withdrawals are protected using SSL encryption technology. On their site, they tout using additional security to prevent fraud and player personal and sensitive information, but it’s not clear as to exactly do they mean by this.
Customer service is professional and prompt through their online instant messaging. They also have an email address that queries can be submitted on, or a direct phone line. If you have any questions, go through the instant messaging. We sent an email and either it got lost in the ether, or went back to our spam box, we don’t know… but suffice to say, when asked through instant chat messaging there was someone on the line straight away responding.
A quick tip, if you do ask them any questions. Typically they will ask for your username or email address that was used when creating an account with them. If you have not created one, you can continue to ask them questions. Of course they would prefer that you create an account, but it’s not necessary and shouldn’t be, if the question is generic. For example, what games do you have, do you accept a player from my country etc. So, do not feel that you need to create an account to simply ask a question to them.
Overall El Royale is highly recommended. They are a quality and trusted relatively new comer to the online casino scene. They obviously felt that could fill in the void of providing excellent service and gaming with competitive bonuses. Their deposits and withdrawals are slightly limited, but across the industry (in particular for US Players) it’s not a huge difference. Live Dealers games is a new addition, and therefore you will only find blackjack, roulette, baccarat and Super 6 (but this should meet most players needs). You can’t go wrong with playing at El Royale.
