Casino Classic Download
Up to $/€200 FREE welcome bonus
Casino Classic members can enjoy peace-of-mind and confidence in their online betting. This casino launched as a Microgaming download casino back in January 1999 and later expanded to provide Casino Classic download apps for mobile platforms - almost fifteen years later in October 2013, when the timing was right. By that we mean, mobile gambling had now stopped looking embarrassing visually and being unplayable on a phone screen.
Casino Classic is just one brand within a highly trusted online gambling network containing roughly thirty different online casinos. Casino Classic is one of only two brands within the entire 30-strong network that offer a free no deposit required sign-up bonus to members with the other freebie available at Casino Kingdom.
The no deposit required bonus is available only to new sign-ups living in qualifying countries - it's a strange list as you'll see later in this review of Casino Classic. Don't feel too offended if you don't qualify for the sign-up freebie (most countries don't - it really is a weird list) because you can still take advantage of a superb welcome bonus on your first deposit of just $/€1. For the next bonus there's $/€200 up for the taking if you are prepared to come to terms with some stiff wagering requirements as part of the package.
Download Casino Classic - just do it
More than twenty years after launch, it is still the Casino Classic download that leads the way over its mobile and even browser siblings. By the casino's own admission, it will always be the downloaded Casino Classic version that provides the best experience.
The friendly team operating Casino Classic tell us that their downloadable casino version contains by far the most games, extra available banking options for depositing and cashing out your juicy wins, more stable gameplay, quicker access to new game releases (including download-only exclusive casino games), faster contact with customer support and even more importantly, downloading Casino Classic's software places you 'into' the casino in a way that none of the other versions - try as they will - can manage.
Bottom line: downloaded casinos are more immersive, atmospheric and just 'feel more like the real thing', especially if you happen to be across the table from a live dealer with a stack of chips between you, all riding on the turn of a card or the spin of a wheel.
Can Mac-users download and play at Casino Classic?
As is sadly the case with nearly all downloadable casinos, and certainly all the download casinos within this group, Mac users are not able to download Casino Classic but do have the option of playing most of the same games via the almost-as-good browser edition or using a PC emulator to run the downloadable casino software. There are both free and paid PC emulators for Mac users but we're not experts on the subject so won't/can't suggest any particular emulator for downloading PC casinos to Macs, sorry. We recommend you do your research to see if there's a competent free version that successfully operates Microgaming download casino software before paying out for a paid emulator.
Still a 'classic casino' but always up-to-date and growing
Casino Classic hasn't stood still for very long in the 20+ years since the casino went live online. As well as adding mobile gameplay, Casino Classic introduced live dealer table games and enormous progressive jackpots that reach multi-millions of dollars/euros and are paid-out immediately to the now-rich winner in one lump-sum.
Also vitally important to keep things fresh, the days are long-gone when Casino Classic's players were limited to Microgaming games only. Not that the Microgaming collection is bad - far from it, containing several hundred fun games and always growing with wide-ranging budgets to suit the most casual, light-fluttered player right up to the high roller who wants to play VIP stakes.
Slots, video poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, scratch cards, keno, bingo and everything else you would hope to find in any casino will be found waiting for action at Casino Classic. Remember you will need to download Casino Classic's software to obtain the entire games collection.
Casino Classic downloaders get full access to the many new independent online casino game design studios listed further down this page that have boosted Casino Classic's total number of games by several hundred. Those who opt or have to use the browser or mobile editions still get a very decent casino. No, it's never going to match the premium download casino but Casino Classic has done a good job of putting together one of the better non-download casinos for those who don't go the download route.
New games are released every month so even the most active online players will always find something new and fresh to play. Just a small sample of the gaming studios that now join Microgaming in filling the ever-expanding gaming floor at Casino Classic includes Alchemy Gaming, All41 Studios, Atomic Spin, Evolution Gaming, Fortune Factory, Foxium, Ingenuity Gaming, Just For The Win, Pulse 8, Resurge, Spin Play Games and Triple Edge Studios. And that really is just a fraction of the game suppliers. Interestingly (well, to us anyway), Casino Classic's website only boasts of having 'Over 550 Of The Best Online Casino Games' whereas in reality this casino contains hundreds more games than the amount claimed. Why so modest?
20+ years and 30 download casinos = player safety
We opened this review mentioning that Casino Classic is just one casino in a highly successful and popular online gambling network containing thirty-or-so different brands. We've worked with this group for an incredible 20+ years now (which makes us feel old) and have nothing but the highest regard for the whole team behind these casinos, including Casino Classic. Bottom line, they are recommended and can be 100% trusted.
Some of the other casinos within the same group as Casino Classic include Aztec Riches, Blackjack Ballroom, Captain Cooks, Casino Kingdom, Colosseum, Cosmo, Golden Tiger, Grand Hotel, Grand Mondial, Luxury, Players Palace, Quatro, UK Casino Club, Villento, Yukon Gold, Zodiac. You can claim bonuses from as many casinos in this network as you wish - you will be welcomed at each. Feel free to click the name of any of the listed casinos to read our review and download the casino software, which is happily an option at all casinos in this group.
Become a millionaire today - no deposit required bonus
Casino Classic invite new sign-ups from a select list of countries to enjoy a free spin on its exclusive big-paying progressive jackpot slot game, Mega Vault Millionaire. Just the one spin might not seem much when most no deposit free spin bonuses offer at least ten free spins, but they won't usually offer the player a real, on-the-table opportunity to become a millionaire and receive the payment in one transaction. Risk-free.
Free Spin Eligible countries: Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Croatia, Fiji, Finland, Iceland, India, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Moldova, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, United Arab Emirates
It is worth mentioning that the jackpot prize is usually a lot more than one million (see Casino Classic's website to discover today's jackpot amount) and if you believe in following where the fortunes are made, Casino Classic and its stablemate brands have been responsible for paying out more multi-million jackpot prizes to players than any other online casino. Suddenly, a shot at this huge prize at zero cost becomes a lot more worthy.
Other welcome bonuses
Casino Classic's bonus information page on its website could be a bit clearer as there's the possibility for confusion. Regardless of if you qualified for the free millionaire spin or not, everyone living in Casino Classic's generally accepted countries is entitled to claim a first deposit bonus of 40 spins on the same, ultra-tense Mega Vault Millionaire slot for just a $/€1 deposit. That's a very generous promotion and certainly one to accept.
The confusing bit is that Casino Classic lists those two bonuses (the one free spin and 40 $/€1 spins) as 'OR' (see image), indicating that players who qualify for both bonuses (ie. those who live in one of the free spin countries) must choose between the two. In fact, if you are fortunate enough to qualify for both the free sign-up spin AND the $/€1 for 40 spins deal then we suggest you grab them.
Things are a bit more straightforward when you make your second deposit with a more familiar deposit bonus on offer. The deal this time is a 100% deposit-match bonus up to $/€200 (minimum $/€10 deposit required) but on this occasion, we don't recommend players accept the 100% second deposit bonus due to an excessive wager requirement of x200. That's up there with the highest we're likely to come across at any online casino.
If you really enjoy taking on the casino with its own bonus money regardless of the huge wagering task ahead of you then by all means go right ahead and accept this bonus. But we reckon it's one for determined bonus hunters only. Everyone else should accept the free spin (if you qualify) and/or the 40 spins for $/€1 and then decline the second deposit bonus. You won't be losing anything - you'll still be offered ongoing deposit bonuses throughout your membership at Casino Classic and bonuses thereafter come with a much friendlier x30 wagering needed.
There are many reasons for recommending Casino Classic. As with any online casino we review, there are always going to be things we'd like to see improved upon but we struggled to find much to criticise at Casino Classic. The crazy-high x200 wager requirement attached to the welcoming deposit bonuses is obviously unattractive but players can (and probably should) easily decline that offer. Adding Bitcoin as a play/bank option would be nice and the bonuses page could be a littler clearer in terms of explaining new member bonus options. Oh, and a smaller list of excluded countries would be great - Casino Classic was an extremely popular download casino in Australia, Germany, Switzerland, USA and many other countries before clueless politicians and weak-willed financial institutions led to Casino Classic's exit from those markets. And a free-play option would be nice to try games before risking real money playing them.
So actually we didn't struggle to find lots of things that would improve Casino Classic! However, they are all non-disastrous issues that most players won't notice. Improvements that would be nice, but not crucial. Casino Classic's positive list is far more impressive with a commitment from the casino to continue offering a high-quality, always up-to-date download casino for the best in online gambling with an overwhelming number of different casino games of all type from a multitude of different designers and providers, all included in one software download.
The free no deposit bonus might be brief but it's a nice touch and has been a big factor in the extra popularity of Casino Classic throughout the globe. Payments of winnings are always on time and players can have all the confidence in the world that due winnings cashed out will be paid promptly. A casino should be completely trustworthy to deserve your deposit. Trust-wise, Casino Classic tick all the right boxes.

March 2021 welcome bonuses
A first deposit of just $/€1 will secure forty bonus spins on the Mega Vault Millionaire progressive jackpot game. Your second deposit is eligible for a 100% welcome bonus up to $/€200 as shown below (minimum $/€10 required for second deposit bonus).
- Deposit $/€10 and get $/€10 free bonus - start with $/€20
- Deposit $/€75 and get $/€75 free bonus - start with $/€150
- Deposit $/€200 and get $/€200 free bonus - start with $/€400
Don't forget that enormous x200 wagering requirement that will have to be completed (mostly on slots, scratch cards, keno, etc.) prior to cashout. Subsequent bonuses have far more relaxed wagering terms and could be worth considering.
As with all casinos in this network, as you play any casino game at Casino Classic you will be earning 'comp points' which can be exchanged for real money in your account. It's the value of the stakes you place - not the outcome of the bet - that determines how many comp points are earned. In our experience, the casino loyalty program is easy to accidentally forget about which later comes as a nice surprise when you remember to check your comp point balance and discover a tidy wedge of free cash. It's happened to us on numerous occasions and is another vote for downloading casinos as it's extremely easy to view and/or cash-in your comp point balance in the loyalty program section of the download casino. You can't really miss it.

Cashout limits: first the best news - if you hit a progressive jackpot win at Casino Classic then you won't be paid-out your millions in weekly/monthly/yearly bits-and-pieces as does surprisingly happen at some otherwise good online casinos. Win a monster payout at Casino Classic on the progressives and you'll get the lot, all in one payment, no fuss. This demonstrates fair thinking and is further evidence that Casino Classic doesn't look for nasty ways to slow down big payouts in the hope that players will pump it all back in by slow-paying the so-called lucky winner. There are none of those shenanigans for even the biggest winners and withdrawals at Casino Classic. Still, as with any online casino, when it comes to cashout-time there are always some limits. Most members of Casino Classic probably will never notice these limits as they already cover the majority of players and cashouts. If, though, you find yourself in the lucky position of wanting to cash out an amount that is more than x5 your total deposits at Casino Classic then you'll be paid in weekly instalments of $/€4000 until the casino's debt to you (not a bad feeling) is fully paid. Unless you've won something mega and not on a progressive jackpot then you won't be waiting long to receive most medium-to-chunky sized cashouts. Overall, it's a fair cashout policy and one that the casino keeps to without delay.
