Golden Palace Online Casino Receives a Makeover

June 17th, 2011  |  Published in Inrodution

In early 2009, Golden Palace online casino received a makeover that completely remodeled the entire site. The operator has once again decided to change the site to make it more attractive and appealing to gamers. For those on the fence about joining, the new website will certainly tip the scales. Two aspects of the old website have been retained; the Golden Palace logo and the “Since 1997” information.

Peace of Mind Graphic

However, this has slightly changed as well to read, “Safe and Secure Since 1997” to emphasize that the casino is safe with reliable transactions. To further illustrate this point, there is a graphic on the homepage entitled, “Peace of Mind” which links to the Frequently Asked Questions sections. This section answers many areas of concern by potential members.

New Icons

At the bottom of the homepage are six icons that list the partners of the casino; each related to safe and secure online gambling. Playtech is the software developer, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission is the jurisdiction of regulation and Technical Systems Testing is the certifying agency for fairness and the random number generator.

Other Safe Gaming Icons

The casino also boasts the seals of the Internet Content Rating Association and Home Gambling Network. This indicates that significant precautions have been taken to ensure minors are not able to access the website. Additionally, Gamblers Anonymous and Responsible Gaming are listed.

Two Categories of Gaming

Golden Palace has also decided to highlight two categories of gaming; Marvel Jackpots and live dealer games. Marvel Jackpots offers some of the most popular online slot games available because they are based on superheroes from Marvel Movies. Live dealer games are also popular, especially with the revamping of a live dealer studio by Playtech.

New Welcome Bonus

With the change in website there is also a change in welcome bonus. Unfortunately the multiple deposit bonus of up to $5,150 has been eliminated. The new welcome bonus offer is 100 percent matching up to $300. Despite the significant downgrade in bonus, the excellent VIP program has not changed which continues to deliver attractive bonuses.

Upcoming Events

Furthermore, a new graphic has been added which depicts a red carpet to display upcoming events. Currently, the event is the crystal anniversary contest to celebrate the 15th year of Golden Palace casino. On January 2nd, 2012, a lucky draw ill be held that sends one player on a cruise. Despite the new face, Golden Palace online casino continues to be an industry-leader and excellent site to place wagers.

The iGaming Super Show in Dublin

May 27th, 2011  |  Published in Casino News

Following the successful iGaming Super Show 2010 in Prague, the second event was held Tuesday, May 24th through Thursday, May 26th in Dublin, Ireland. Hosted by publishers of iGaming Business and iGB Affiliate, the show is aimed at vendors, media, affiliates, operators and regulators. There will be multiple conference streams discussing topics such as business strategies and online marketing.

Focus on Customer Acquisition and Retention

The show featured over 100 stands where the online gambling industry will meet to conduct business and networking. The conference was separated into two with the first focusing on marketing and acquisition. The primary topic was the conflict between customer acquisition and retention. Online gaming sites acquire customers from the Internet through search engines and social networking so search engine optimization will be reviewed.

Focus on Trend and Regulation

The second conference discussed trends and regulation within the industry. Topics that were discussed include the seizure of online poker rooms in the United States on April 15th and the impact of Black Friday on business. Additionally, online gambling regulation in Canada, the European Union and Ireland was discussed. Several roundtables were devoted specifically to the situation in the United States.

Sponsors of the Show

There are many big name sponsors of the iGaming Super Show. However, the majority of sponsors are affiliate programs and operators such as, Golden Palace, Bodog Affiliates and Euro Partners. Alderney was the only regulatory body that sponsored the event. Also, the only software provider to sponsor the show is Microgaming. Payment solution provider sponsors include Paysafecard, Entropay, Neteller and Skrill.

Neteller’s Message

Neteller recently distributed an email to all account holders informing them of the upcoming Dublin iGaming Super Show 2011. Also, the affiliate team has explained their plan to increase commissions and easy methods of paying customers. Therefore, by promoting the Neteller service as a secure, reliable payment option in addition to online casino promotions, affiliates would be able to receive two commissions for one referral.

There was also quite a bit of partying occurring at the iGaming Super Show. One of the biggest events was Calvin Ayre’s 50th Birthday Bash which featured hundreds of excited participants partying at the show. Due to the success in 2010, the iGaming Super Show is growing in number of attendees and number of vendors setting up. The show is expected to improve every year in the future.

A Grand Royal Wedding Promotion

April 18th, 2011  |  Published in Casino News

With the approach of the Royal Wedding on April 29th, 2011 between Prince William and Kate Middleton, Golden Palace online casino has decided to launch a promotion to honor this momentous occasion. The casinos motto with regards to this recent promotion is that if you were unable to be on the guest list of the Royal Wedding, you will still not miss out on the fun.

Create Personal Wedding Invitations

Golden Palace has also developed a new tool that allows players to create wedding invitations. Users will be able to change the name and backdrop on the invitation, upload images, edit those images and preview the invitation prior to emailing it to their friends. Golden Palace has made several creative suggestions such as, replacing the current photo with a member of Kiss or adding their pet. The opportunities for creativity are endless.

Commemorative Crown Jewels Condoms

This tool does not relate to the promotion in any way. The actual promotion offers an interesting souvenir. Those players who make a deposit from now until May 6th will be sent a free package of Commemorative Crown Jewels Condoms. These are considered collector’s items and the description reads, “These condoms of distinction promise a royal union of pleasure and are creating quite the stir before the Royal Couple’s big day.”

Terms and Conditions

To be eligible for this promotion, participants must be Golden Palace online casino members with a real-money account. Also, players must make a deposit of at least $25 then send an email to customer service with a subject line that says, “Royal Wedding” and the username and address in the body. The Commemorative Crown Jewels Condoms will then be delivered in six to eight weeks. This is certainly one of the stranger but innovative promotions from any online casino.

Appealing to the Masses

Powered by industry leading online gaming software developer Playtech, Golden Palace casino is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, a reliable jurisdiction. Golden Palace online casino has created a way to offer players a different type of bonus. This will definitely appeal to those in the United Kingdom and players who are intently following the wedding.

When future events are announced across the world, such as the Royal Wedding, be sure to check in to Golden Palace online casino to see what type of interesting new promotion they have to celebrate that occasion.
