Island Casino is also home to 40 other games listed below:
Depositing and Withdrawing when in the US
Island Casino is neither Blacklisted nor has any Warnings attached to it, but what it does have is a borderline embarrassing average user score of 1.9 out of 5 on LCB. Almost certainly a lot of that has to do with the horrific banking terms for anyone using anything outside of an E-Wallet.
Joining the ranks of the downright egregious despite a reasonable minimum deposit of $50, Island Casino will allow players to withdraw as little as $50 back to their E-Wallets, but for non E-Wallet users, a minimum withdrawal request of $1,000 is necessary to get a bank wire. In addition to being an absurdly high number, this is also 20x more than the minimum deposit that the casino will happily accept.
As far as high rollers are concerned, they will allow a maximum withdrawal of $5,000 via Bitcoin and, supposedly, other means. Bank wires take 4-6 business days, so high rollers who run up a balance of $20,000 could theoretically enjoy all of their winnings in just over a month. I’m not entirely convinced that everyone gets paid at this casino, otherwise, why ranked so low? For that reason, I’m going to see if there are any issues along those lines in the reviews.
There doesn’t seem to be any recently reported problems with payouts, so I’m going to give this one a pretty strong grade for high rollers. Obviously, when it comes to low-rolling players, this casino basically went out of its way to fail.
- High Rollers Grade: B+
- Low Rollers Grade: F-
