Don't let the name fool you: Euro Palace may be aimed primarily at European players, but this casino has got everything it takes to compete on an international stage.
Once the Euro Palace download was finished, we booted up the software and took it for a spin.
- Players from all over the world can play here
- Excellent range of games, including table games, live dealers and lots of slots
- Software is high quality and driven by a reputable casino software provider
- Speedy payouts and many different banking options accepted
- U.S. players supposedly not accepted (but they do allow deposits and withdrawals in USD)
- Not all banking options are available in every country
A huge range of games, quick payouts and slots titles featuring household names. What more could you want? In this Euro Palace Casino review we take a closer look at how everything works and why this casino deserves your attention.
The casino doesn't have as much a detailed theme as some other online casinos, but we're more interested in the games they offer, how easy it is to make deposits/withdrawals and so on rather than aesthetics.
- Owner / Operator: Digimedia Ltd
- Licenced By: Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta

Driven by Microgaming, players at Euro Palace (Flash or downloadable client users) have access to a range of over 500 games, including slots, live dealer games, progressive titles, table games and all sorts of other options.
Obviously, this is a massive selection of games and even punters who visit the casino daily could enjoy a new game every day for many months. Of course, it's far more likely that most players will find a few favorites before they work their way through all of those games.
The casino is part of the Fortune Lounge, an elite group of casinos that work loosely together. This only gains them one or two exclusive slots, but ensures that they're able to participate in some fantastic giveaways.
Generally speaking, the software is very smooth with no glitches or bugs (at least not during the time we played) and runs quickly on both the Euro Palace download client and the instant play version.
The range of games is just a little smaller on the no download alternative but there's plenty here to keep you amused whichever option you choose, and the software runs quickly and looks great however you access it.
Microgaming is well known for their range of top slots, and you'll find these on offer at Euro Palace. Some of the most popular titles include:
- Avalon II
- The Dark Knight Rises
- Game Of Thrones
- Jurassic Park
- Terminator II
- Tomb Raider
There's also the usual range of table games, including many different variations of blackjack as well as baccarat, craps, sic bo, roulette and so on.
There's no dedicated Euro Palace mobile offering in the form of apps, but you will find that you can access a streamlined version of the main site on your smartphone or tablet.
The range of games available on the Euro Palace Casino mobile site isn't nearly as extensive as on their main site - it's mostly limited to slots - but it's still nice to be able to play casino games for real money while you're out and about, even if it would be nice to see a dedicated app for each mobile platform.
Euro Palace is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, and has been since 2010, and has also been verified as Safe and Fair by eCOGRA. This double whammy means that you should have no qualms about making a deposit and playing with Euro Palace.
We'd like to see some more information about their payout percentages, which some other casinos make public on their websites, but this is a minor niggle as it's not compulsory to do so. Euro Palace Casino does at least provide a carousel featuring information about the latest wins by players.
The range of deposit options offered by Euro Palace is truly impressive. As well as all of the usual suspects – Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard etc. – available for the vast majority of currencies, you'll also find some less common, often location specific, players like POLi, Neosurf, Transferencia and Euteller.
Withdrawal methods are about par for the course, with the following methods (plus a couple more) available:
- Visa, Solo and Maestro
- Bank/wire transfer
All withdrawals are pending for a minimum of 24 hours before being processed and withdrawals may be limited to 5,000 credits per week, although progressive wins are exempt from this.
During this 24 hour cooling off period you can turn your withdrawal back into casino credit so, if you don't trust yourself not to turn your winnings straight back for more casino play, you might like to take a day off from the casino.
Bonus Breakout Section: $/$500 Free Euro Palace Bonus For New Players
- Deposit 1: 100% match up to 150
- Deposit 2: 50% match up to 350 (must be made within 7 days of first deposit) + 100 free spins
- Wagering requirements required to clear welcome bonus are 40x the value of the bonus
- Slots count 100% towards this bonus, table poker games count for 20%, classic blackjack for 2% and several other table games for 10%
As well as a nice little match bonus, new players also get to enjoy free spins on various slots titles after their first three deposits. If you're the type of person who loves getting something for nothing or – like me – you enjoy slots but always seem to end up playing table games instead when you visit the casino, this could be a very welcome feature.
The requirements to clear the Euro Palace Casino bonus/welcome promotion aren't particularly high, so clearing them is a very realistic proposition. It should be particularly easy for slots fans, who will also enjoy getting 100 spins on three of Euro Palace's top titles.
It's great that the first bonus is the higher match because it means that, on the off chance you don't get around to making a second deposit within one week of your first, at least you know you've had that first top bonus.
Players at Euro Palace can also expect to enjoy ongoing promotions and offers, which have a lower wagering requirement of 30x the bonus where appropriate, including a Wheel of Fortune that players can spin multiple times per month and receive a guaranteed prize.
Previous offers have included giveaways of cruise tickets and Porsche sports cars, as well as other "spin the wheel" type events.
Euro Palace, Flash and downloadable client alike, players are automatically enrolled in the Euro Palace Casino loyalty program and receive 2,500 points on signing up.

Euro Palace has lots of games to enjoy, a healthy match bonus as well as 100 no strings attached free slots spins - not particularly common to get this sort of thing at online casinos - and an impressive range of deposit and withdrawal options.
For these reasons, and others listed above, we have no choice but to provide a very favorable Euro Palace review. The site and downloadable client may be very simple, without any real theme, but that can't change the fact that this is a very good place to gamble online for real money.
