50 States Casino is a brand new online gambling site that has only recently set up shop. It is, however, licensed and regulated in Cyprus, so there is a good oversight structure in place.
50 States Casino is built on top of software provided by Top Game, which is a plus for two major reasons. First, because it's one of the less mainstream providers, which means you'll see a lot of games you haven't already played over and over, and second because 50 States Casino accepts players from the USA.
This is a download only casino, so you're going to need to install their software if you want to play here. Luckily, this is a painless procedure that takes about five minutes end to end, including the download time over a fairly average broadband connection.
Sadly, the casino is only available for Windows based computers, so Mac users are not directly supported. However, it runs fine under Boot Camp, and we've also tested it in Virtual PC, so if you have access to that software, you'll still be able to play on OSX.
The system requirements are surprisingly low considering how good the casino software looks. The upside of this is that you don't need the latest and greatest machine to play here.
The standard welcome bonus gives you a 100% match up to $250 free on your first four deposits, for a total of $1,000 in free bonuses. However, there's also a high roller bonus, which is welcome.
The high roller bonus gives you a 50% match up to $1,250 free on your first four deposits, for a total of $5,000 free, which is far more generous.
The catalogue of available games is broader than I expected it to be – I counted at least sixty different titles before I got distracted by actually playing them – there are a lot more.
There's as strong emphasis on video slot games at 50 States Casino, with a broad selection of classic style three reel slots to choose from. There are, however, far more fast paced five reel slots with multiple pay lines and enticing bonus rounds, and I spent most of my time exploring those.
If slots are not your forte, there's a stack of traditional table games you can choose from, including multiple different forms of blackjack, and both original European and classic American flavours of Roulette. And of course, you won't find the choice of video poker forms lacking at all.
50 States Casino takes deposits from most major credit cards, such as American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Diners Club. If you need to use an e-Wallet, 50 States Casino is happy to accept NETeller and Moneybookers.
US dollars is the only currency supported at this casino.
50 States Casino offers support via email, and via live chat within the client software. However, what sets it apart from many competitors is that it has a 24/7 call centre that you can phone, with toll free numbers in both the United States of America, and the United Kingdom.
