The Casino Cruise welcome bonus is a four stage match bonus up to $1000 + 100 free spins made up as follows:
First DepositSecond DepositThird DepositFourth Deposit✓ Receive a 100% match bonus up to $200 and 100 free spins
✓ Receive a 50% match bonus up to $200
✓ Receive a 25% match bonus up to $300
✓ Receive a 25% match bonus up to $300
To clear the casino bonus you need to wager x40 the bonus amount, similarly any winnings from the 100 free spins must be wagered x40. Video slots contribute 100% to the play-through, classic slots 75%, table games, blackjack and live dealer 10% and video poker 5%. In addition to these ‘regular’ terms, there’s a few other Ts and Cs to be aware of including – deposits via Moneybooks or Neteller not being eligible for the bonus, wagering requirements having to be met within 14 days instead of the standard 30 and specific low risk/hedge betting on roulette not being allowed.
Bonus in Practice: On the first deposit whatever you deposit will be matched by Casino Cruise, so deposit $100 and you get $100, to actually be able to play with the bonus money though you’d need to wager $4000 (40 x $100). The 100 free spins on Starburst are distributed over the following 5 days following your first deposit. The second deposit bonus is maximum of $200, so if you deposit $250 you still get $200. The 2nd re-load bonus is 50% of what you deposit, so if you deposit $100 you receive $50 and so on.
Bonus Sum Up: The Casino Cruise sign-up offer has its pros and cons. On the plus side it offers a traditional ‘Microgaming style’ large total amount of $1000 which is good for big depositors who will stay and make at least 4 deposits. In addition there is the very nice 100 free spins on Starburst. On the negative ledger the 33% match (i.e. whatever you deposit Casino Cruise matches just 1/3 across the four deposits) is low, whilst some of the bonus terms and conditions such as the 14 day play-through demands are not player friendly
You’ve joined the cruise, registered, deposited some money and have set sail, but what’s the state of the affairs in the ‘hold’ with the games on offer? Well it turns out that things below deck are very good with a selection of over 600+ games on offer from different software providers including Microgaming, Play ‘n’ Go and Evolution Gaming,
Slots: Finding your way around the game selection is easy with the games organized by game type, software providers or by categories e.g. ‘Film and TV’ or ‘Animal Lovers’. I headed to the video slots category and many well known Microgaming slots such as Hitman, Tomb Raider, Immortal Romance and The Osbornes. In total the Casino Cruise slots game selection is over 500+, more than enough choice for even the most ardent slot fans. One neat design touch as you scroll down the games page is the descending anchor!
Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat: Table game players can find a choice of 56 different roulettes, blackjacks, baccarat, oasis poker and Caribbean stud poker games. If you’re an online casino player who likes playing with real life dealers you can play on the Casino Cruise live casino with 15 tables games from Evolution Gaming.
Like all the new casinos launched which integrate games from different games companies Casino Cruise is an instant play-HTML 5 casino only.
The Casino Cruise mobile casino can be played through the web browser on any smartphone running on iOS (iPhone) or Android (Nexus, HTX, Motorola, Sony, Samsung etc). Game choice is a excellent 200+ and unlike many other mobile casinos they’ve managed to pack in casino games of all genres including video pokers, Caribbean stud poker, keno and live dealer games.
You can open an account and deposit direct from your handset with that account then open back on your PC or Mac

Bottom Line on Casino Cruise
In a sense Casino Cruise combines the best of the ‘older’ Microgaming casinos and the newer casinos which package games from different software companies. It’s got a large welcome bonus spread across four deposits like Spin Palace and Royal Vegas, and like these older casinos it offers full $CA support and Canadian friendly support. Like the newer casinos though it offers a library of games from different games companies, free spins and a mobile casino with over 200 games. All in all Casino Cruise is set for a smooth journey with the only ‘leak in the hull’ being some of the welcome bonus fine print. Why not get on board today and see if it’s the right casino for you?
