Coming into this review of View Casino, I knew little about the actual site itself. Using its own proprietary software, View Casino was founded by Vuetec Gaming back in 2012, and is currently licensed through Malta and the United Kingdom. Is it a spot you should dedicate time to playing though?
Software and Games
When I first saw View Casinos website, my initial thoughts were that the casino looked a bit dated to me. The casino itself utilizers its own proprietary software to power the casino as well as the games, which are delivered through an in-browser instantly play option that requires just a few minutes of your time to register and play. No downloading of any software is necessary.
After I got myself registered and deposited some funds, I began searching my way through the sites lobby in order to play View Casinos games. What I found was a selection that is decent in scope but unfortunately very poor in its execution.
The production values for the Vuetec software are incredibly poor, with the game dealing out hands too quickly and with a thud noise that sounds like it came from a Commodore 64. I was also very unimpressed with the table aesthetics that I found on every game, as re-betting was a chore, and it was hard to follow exactly what was going on at the tables.
Slots are a mess as well, with the limited selection of games sounding horrible and lacking any features that would make them playable. While I understand that smaller developers often dont have the pocketbooks to make titles as immersive as industry giants, the overall look and feel of View Casinos games make me feel like I am playing an online casino from the 1990s.
Live Dealer Games
I am a big fan of live dealer games at a casino as I enjoy the slower pace and interaction that I can have with the dealers who are broadcasting my hands for me. Unfortunately View Casino also manages to mess this up as well, as the video quality of the hands is very poor and I could not follow any of the roulette hands as they were being played out. Couple this with the fact that players at the land casino where the games are played at often block the camera and you will see that View Casinos live dealer option is a waste of time.
Banking and Customer Support
Banking options at View Casino are limited, with the casino offering a few credit card, bank wire, and e-Wallet options for depositing and withdrawing money. Deposits are generally handled instantaneously, while withdrawals are processed within a few business days.
Customer support is available through email as well as telephone, but we were unable to find a working number, as the ones posted on View Casinos site were all listed as fax numbers. The inability to message directly or call the casino is a big concern, and nothing is worse than waiting to have an issue resolved when you are trying to have fun. This was the last in a long series of disappointments that I experienced at View Casino.
