Interested in learning more about Desert Nights Casino before you sign up?
Smart person. Only dummies sign up to an online casino blind.
All the details you need to decide whether Desert Nights is the right choice for you is below. Specifically, we give you answers to questions like:
As well as a bunch of other important stuff we think you should know before signing up.
Let’s get to it.
Desert Nights is casino brand from the Deck Media Group. They were established in 2010, but Deck Media’s been around for a couple years longer – since 2007 – and own several other casinos including Spartan Slots, Sloto’Cash, Miami Club and Uptown Aces.
They’re licensed through their parent company, Deck Media. Their license is in/from Curacao.
Players from any of the following countries cannot play at Desert Nights Casino:
Players from the United States can play here, except for players from the following states: Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York or Washington.
Not that I could find. I didn’t come across any scams or scandals, and they weren’t on blacklists from CasinoListings.com or Casinomeister.com. But they are endorsed by the Wizard of Odds.
You can contact them using the following channels:
And unlike some of their other properties *cough* Black Diamond and Box 24 Casino *cough* you don’t have to have an account before you can speak to someone using live chat.
Their email support is far better than the aforementioned casinos, too. I sent an email with a couple questions about their VIP and comp points program. They responded quickly and – get this – they answered my questions.
Imagine that – customer support that actually answers your questions.
Here are the options you have to fund your account:
These are their payout options:
It sucks there’s no bitcoin. But if this is a problem, Deck Media has several casinos who do accept it.
Another bit of good news – it looks like their $2,500 per week limit, which is about par for offshore casinos – doesn’t include progressive jackpots, which are paid in one lump sum. So, that’s a plus for progressive jackpot players.
Depending on where you live, some of the banking options above may or may not be available to you. Desert Nights has a chart you can look at to make sure.
Another noteworthy term – if you have a balance and don’t log into your account for 180 days (6 months), you forfeit your balance to Desert Nights.
That’s all I found worth noting, from their terms and conditions, or anywhere else on the web.
It looks like they have 3 different offers. And you can claim each one. Here are their offers, along with the limits and rollover requirements:
No deposit necessary. This has a 50x rollover and a max cash out limit of $170. You can only play slots, scratch cards and keno with this offer.
This is spread out over 2 deposits. Both are 100% match bonuses – one is up to $1,000, and the other is up to $1,500. They both have a 28x rollover. After you do both bonuses, you’ll get $50 free, which has a 40x rollover. There is no max cash out for the two deposit bonuses. The $50 reward has a max cash out of $250.
You can only play slots, scratch cards and keno with this offer.
This is a 250% match bonus up to $2,550. It has a 35x playthrough. There is no max cash out.
This offer is only for slots, keno and scratch cards.
They have their daily weekly bonuses. Here’s a list of those offers, along with details about limits, playthrough and acceptable games.
This is a 100% match bonus up to $500, which has a 28x rollover and no max cash out. On top of that you’ll get $50 free, which has a $250 max cash out limit. This is for slots, keno and scratch cards only.
Reload your balance with this 177% match bonus up to $885. This has a 36x playthrough, no max cash out, and is only for slots, scratch cards and keno games.
This is a 250% match bonus up to $625. It has a 45x rollover, no max cash out, and is only available for slots, keno and scratch card games.
Get $50 for every real money customer you send to Desert Nights. This has a $500 max cash out limit.
This is a cash back program. You’ll get a bonus of up to $170 every Monday based on your losses for the previous week. The rollover ranges from 30-40x – the more you lose, the more you get and the lower your rollover – and the max cash out ranges from $250-$1,700.
They have 2 reward programs.
The first is a comp points program. You’ll get 1 point for every $1 you bet. Then you can exchange every 1,000 points you accumulate for $1 in cash back.
They also have a VIP program. This has 3 tiers – Bronze, Silver and Gold. They don’t say what you get for moving up in levels. All they say is that VIP members get:
There are a couple things I find worth mentioning:
There are several other rules for specific types of bonuses or countries. You can find them all here.
The following lists should give you an idea of what games you can play at Desert Nights.
These are slot machines from Rival Gaming. What makes these unique is that they have stories that change based on the outcomes you get playing the slot machine and bonus rounds.
These are a mix of bingo games, keno and scratch cards.
Rival Gaming. This is different than some of their other casinos in that – most of them – work with multiple software companies. And this is the first of their casinos I’ve reviewed where Rival stands alone (instead of being grouped together with other software providers).
Depends on where you get the info. Their games page says more than 200. But if you look in the footer it says more than 160. Somewhere between that is a good bet.
You can download their software. But you can also play their games from your browser. This is especially handy if you’re a Mac or Linux user and/or you prefer to go the fast and lite route.
They do. Their mobile page says they offer 42 mobile-friendly games. They’re compatible with IOS and Android devices – even some from the 2nd and 3rd generation.
Other devices, such as BlackBerry and Windows, may run, too, but they’ll be hit and miss. You can quickly check this out by going to their casino from your mobile device, though you’ll need an account if you actually want to play/test their games.
While checking it out I noticed they also give you the option of a ‘lite mode,’ which comes with fewer “bells and whistles” so everything will load and run faster. This is neat, and not an option I’ve seen offered by too many online casinos.
Yeah, though there are a few exceptions.
There are a couple of things I don’t care for:
Here’s what stood out to me:
All that said –
They look like a good option, though it’s a better option for slots, keno and scratch card players who like Rival Gaming software.
If not, Uptown Aces or Sloto’Cash are good alternatives. Or, you can check out an online casino that doesn’t belong to Deck Media – Bovada or Ignition Casino come to mind.
But, for everyone else, Desert Nights is worth checking out.
