OrientXpress Casino Review
Can we as shallow as to judge anything on its first impression? The answer is yes, most of us can. After all, we have the right to pretty judge as we please if we are paying good money for it. When it comes to online gaming, and the various risks and horror stories we sometimes hear about, caution is always advised. When a site doesn’t look incredible from the first glance, we may be a little suspicious.
OrientXpress Casino, while not the ugliest site we have seen, is far from being the most attractive. However, appearances can be deceptive, so, in our review, we decided to look beyond the surface and see if beauty is only skin deep. Read on our OrientXpress Casino review.
Pro’s & Cons
In terms of the positives, yes, there is certainly a good number from the outset. Some of my favourite slots to play are listed, and the website is easily navigable. The simple way it has been constructed means that most of the options you will look for are easily found, with the main features listed across the top of the screen. The promotions on offer are definitely worth a look, and the payment methods really jump out in terms of the choice you have as a player.
These fundamental points can often be the difference in a player staying with a site or leaving for elsewhere, so you can keep your pretty site and stick it, right? Well, not exactly.
The cons, for the most part, relate to the design of the site. It is so basic and pretty ugly, and the colour scheme is unsettling. The design, while being simple, is also annoying as the various graphics and rolling features can be distracting and difficult on the eye. It appears that there was not a great deal of time put into the layout of the site, and it looks pretty antiquated in comparison to many of its competitors.
OrientXpress Casino is uninspiringand boringg in this regard.
Software & Games
Software and games wise, it can feel like a case of substance over style. The software providers OrientXpress Casino partners with are some of the biggest names in online gaming, such as NetEnt, NYX, Fugaso and a wide range of smaller operators which provide some interesting but obscure titles. It is always encouraging to see some of your favourite games on a new site, so we impressed with the familiar titles to be found on the casino.
In terms of numbers, you will be hardly lost for choice. There are over 600 games available to play, which puts the variety of up there with some of the top casinos out there. Considering the site was founded in 2017, this is also a good sign. All in all, we found over 500 slots, a wide range of blackjack games, 20 roulette games, multiple versions of video poker, baccarat, and a catalogue of live casino games.
With a top class level of choice, the signs were encouraging. Playing through some of the games on offer did prompt us to try other things which we maybe would not have done only for curiosity to get the better of us.
Popular Games Include:
- Video Slots
- Classic Slots
- Live Casino
- Video Poker
- Multi-Player Games
- Instant Win
What you will find on the desktop site is also, for the most part, available on OrientXpress’ mobile site. Banking, live chat, and the vast majority of slots and table games can all accessed on the go. One of the upsides to the site being so basic is that you should have no trouble finding any big differences.
As was confirmed by the live chat operator we spoke to, OrientXpress can be used over a wide range of smartphones, tablets and compatible devices. So whether you are an Apple, Samsung, Blackberry or Nokia user, you should find everything fits accordingly.
One of the big drags of many online casinos is the limited options which some provide. It is one our pet-peeves, and we are certain that we are not alone in this regard. Finding a casino that can offer a multitude of different payment options, therefore, is always going to go down well when reviewing a site.
Visa, MasterCard, Visa Electron, Maestro, EntroPay, PostePay, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, SofortUberweisung, Giropay, Suomen Verkkomaksut, Trustpay, SafetyPay, Multibanco, WebMoney, Moneta, Yandex, Astropay Card, EcoPayz, EPS, EUTeller, iDEAL, Poli, Sporopay, Ticketsurf, UseMyServices/UseMyFunds, Trustly and Cashlib are all accepted, even if many are not widely used in the UK. What really stands out is that you can also use Bitcoin!
Is OrientXpress Casino safe?
OrientXpress is owned and operated by Equinox Dynamic N.V., who is registered in Curacao. There does not seem to be a great deal of information when it comes to how this affects UK players, but we were told by customer support that UK players are permitted to join. The licence OrientXpress has to operate is granted by the Government of Curacao.
There is security in place protecting transactions, and the site does require validation of players’ details in order to adhere to standard practices. However, we would advise looking into the security policy on the website in detail before you sign up.
It is fair to say that OrientXpress offers a decent level of customer support. There is a telephone number available to customers, which is based in Bratislava in Slovakia. Orient Xpress also provide an address in the eastern European country which you can check on their website. While it is highly unlikely that you would need this address, it is made available all the same.
For those of us who prefer live chat, there is a real time function where you can request customer support regarding any issues or assistance needed. There is also an email address available to customers.
Orient Xpress Casino may not look like the ideal casino at first glance, but there are many positive points about the site. It is easy to use, meaning it can be a good place to start for many first time players. Everything is straightforward and unlikely to cause problems to players. The range of games is impressive, with some great variations on classic games and some top slots.
There is a wide range of payment methods, which includes Bitcoin. Customer support is good, too. While it may not be the prettiest site to look at, we have seen worse.
