Play iPad Pokies with Amex –Review

American Express, or Amex for short, is a credit card provider that is used all over the world and has been around since 1850. The company behind Amex is actually one of the richest companies in the United States, with a huge turnover and a logo and name that is recognised globally.

Amex is more common in the United States than it is in other countries. It is accepted in most countries, but all shops and websites might not accept it as it is not as common as Visa or MasterCard. Still, Amex is one of the best cards available as it tends to offer much more in the way of rewards, cash-back and other such schemes. If you have an American Express credit card with a reward scheme, and you know of an online casino that accepts it, then you can basically take advantage of an extra loyalty scheme, this one provided by your credit card company.

The bad news is that not a lot of online casinos accept Amex, and the ones that do don’t fit in with the theme of this site, which is to say that they either don’t have many worthwhile pokies or they don’t offer iPad capability. There are some sites out there that fill the bill though, and we have picked out the perfect pair below. Not only do both of these sites allow deposits using American Express credit cards, but they also have iPad capability, with a huge host of pokies on offer.

Royal Vegas Casino

First up is Royal Vegas Casino, a site that often finds its way onto our top lists and one that does everything we could ask for in an online casino. Royal Vegas Casino has been going for a number of years now, and it is part of the Digimedia brand, who have been around even longer than that and who also own the Platinum Play and Euro Palace websites. Royal Vegas Casino are regulated, licensed, audited and secure, with the Malta Gaming Authority, eCogra and Fortune Lounge Group all combining to ensure Royal Vegas Casino is as safe as it could be.

Royal Vegas Casino’s iPad app is one of the most highly rated online casino apps on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. It is updated regularly, it contains pokies that are exclusive to the mobile app and it also contains all of the games that make-up the main Royal Vegas Casino website. There are a few things you can’t do on the app, and a few things that are simply easier to do on the website, such as depositing and withdrawing, but that is generally the case with most online casinos. As part of the Microgaming brand, Royal Vegas Casino is updated with all of the newest pokies as soon as they are released. In fact, there are new pokies being released every month, and during the holidays the frequency increases to every week. Microgaming was the first online casino provider and fans of pokies also owe a lot of the modern advances in these machines to Microgaming, as they are constantly pushing the boat out, seeking to create new bonus rounds, new features and to develop new approaches.

All new members to Royal Vegas can pickup a free $1,200 to play with, along with 75 free bets, all of which can be used to play on the Mega Moohlah game, which comes with a progressive jackpot that regularly exceeds $5 million, and is much more than that at the time of writing. The free bets can also be used on any one of the other 400+ games, whilst the bonus cash can be used anywhere on the site, from the blackjack and roulette games, to the pokies and virtual scratch cards.

Spin Palace

Spin Palace has been around a little longer than Royal Vegas Casino, having been founded back in 2001 when the online casino industry was very much in its infancy. This is just as heavily regulated, just as secure and just as trusted. You don’t spend close to 15 years in this business without doing something right. Spin Palace offers a number of deposit bonuses on top of its new member bonus, and how much you get depends on which deposit method you use.

Unfortunately, deposits using American Express credit cards do not quality for any extra bonuses, but there if you use certain web wallets to make your deposit then you can pickup anything from an extra 15% to an extra 10% each time you make a deposit.

Spin Palace is also part of the Microgaming brand, which means it is privy to the same new technology and the same new games that players of Royal Vegas Casino can enjoy. It also has the same table games and virtual scratch cards. There isn’t a huge difference between these two sites. They are two separate companies, but in their security, their gaming software and their banking options, they are very similar.
