VIP requirements & Player Categorisation

There is no(!) information regarding the VIP-program on the website itself. However it is basically the same as in Sloto’Cash I suppose where customers have to inquire about their status themselves. For some inexplicable reason this is neither mentioned in the VIP-lounge nor in the customer support where I just found that:

VI US-Players

US-Players are welcome.

VII Deposit Methods

Following banking methods are available for making a deposit:

Deposit methods:

The process itself is well illustrated and structured in the Casino cashier; however it’s just plain and simple information in a bureaucratic key. We are addressing our customers thus we should do it in a more eloquent and passionate way.


VIII Withdrawal Methods

Withdrawal methods:

Withdrawals are processed within up to 72 business hours. The casino processes withdrawals on most weekends, however this is not always possible. Please note that US withdrawals via wire-transfer may take up to 10 business working days and ewallet payments are instant after processing hours. There is a daily withdrawal limit of $2000

IX Customer Support

Players have two options in case they need support: email support & live chat.

E-Mail Support

Player Support:


VIP Manager:

Casino Manager:

There is no Fax support anymore (has yet to be removed from the website)

There is no phone support.



The colours are striking, the logo has stopping power! However due to that colourful scheme it’s easy to overlook essential elements: For example the live chat doesn’t stand out and is not favourable positioned. With all the pictures and super colourful thumbs the “Winners Delight” bonus is reduced to just one among “thousand”. The “Welcome Bonus” is on the other hand well stage managed – for my taste even too big. Insofar and with the proximity to the trademark logo, it could very well take attention awayfrom the logo itself.
The download is clearly visible but maybe the order could be optimized.

The games flashing in are a little bit designed too big for my taste. They take away attention from the “Progressive Total Jackpots” and vice versa. The “how to play” falls in the same category: it just vanishes among all the screaming colours and pictures, although it does contrast well from the background but it is simply too much of everything.

This also applies for the “Why play at DC” column as well as for the “latest winners”. Both are good ideas but due to the fact that every piece of free space is filled with something, they just do not stick out. Bottom line is: Users just do not pay enough attention to register everything. We carefully should think what we do feed them and where.
I just do not believe that we take the most advantage of the limited space we have, to present us in the best possible spot; hence give our customers good reason to play here. I think this should be rather pursued with information (why this is the place they should play) than advertisement.
Bonus Terms and Conditions is perfectly hidden in the bottom




The FAQ is rather bulky, there are many
answers almost too many. In order not to
lose the overview it would make sense to
reduce the topics dealt with to the really
essential ones. Others which do not fall
in that category like: how long does the
download take, I would remove. They
distract from the important ones, which can
be answered easily.
The customers are lazy. If they do not
find immediately what they are looking for
in the FAQ, they will not hesitate to contact
costumer support.
The font size needs to be bigger as well.


The font size has to be bigger. Besides that, the download works fine, although I would prefer a screen popping up rather than this bar in the bottom:

The download itself works fine and the logo is prominently displayed.





Font size has to be bigger and
the structure overall better.
I would also prefer a short personal
instruction with some not too subtle
self-laudation a la:
100% trust, guarantee bla bla.













The game section is chaotic. Firstly the respective thumbs should be bigger and in a contrasting colour. There is not one description regarding the games. The colour scheme is not favourable and the subsections are very hard to spot e.g.



There is potential in the brand especially in regards of brand or recognition value but the implementation is just in a slipshod way.
Inaccuracies: Games which are even not available on Desert Nights are excluded from bonuses. Hardly any information especially concerning considering that this also has effects on the VIP-program. Besides that Spelling mistakes, no logical site structure, low usability and so on.
Bottom line: This casino certainly has potential but it’s currently not scooped out and these mentioned inconsistencies are just discrediting.
