Sky is one of the biggest broadcast brands in the UK. With Sky Vegas they bring their technical expertise and existing consumer base to the online gaming scene. Being Sky, they'd never do something by half and Sky Vegas is no different. They're offering a huge array of traditional casino games and slots, live casinos and mobile gaming. Their two sister sites, Sky Bet and Sky Poker, complete their online gaming business. For some this combination of throwing their weight around and monopolistic tendencies may leave a bad taste in your mouth but if you like and trust the Sky brand they do offer a great platform.
Sky Vegas in detailSky Vegas has over 250 different games from traditional classics like Roulette, Blackjack and 3 Card Poker to exclusives like CashBack Slots, Wanted DOA and Hi Lo Poker. Being a TV broadcaster it's inevitable they'd specialise in licensing well known TV brands such as Deal Or No Deal, Goldenballs, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Family Fortunes, Play Your Cards Right, Blockbusters, Catchphrase, Wheel of Fortune, Blankety Blank, The Price is Right and The Million Pound Drop. There's a clear concentration of family favourite gameshows so if that's your cup of tea you should feel right at home.
It seems everyone and their granny has an iPad nowadays. If not a tablet then at least a mobile phone capable of playing games. Sky Vegas have licensed traditional board games like Monopoly for the iPad and iPhone. The pocket super sleuths can also play Cluedo, on the go. There's a whole host of other mobile slots and for iOS, Android and other mobile platforms.
The Live Casino offers a more corporeal experience with live video streaming of real dealers playing Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette. This brings the feel of a real casino right into your home without the hassle of getting there! If the gee-gees is more your thing and you don't want to take a punt on the real thing over at Sky Bet then you can try roaring vociferously at Virtual Horses and Virtual Dogs.
So what's the deal?Sky Vegas offer a £10 no deposit bonus (i.e completely free) to help you try them out, no strings attached. If you choose to put some money in they offer a two part welcome bonus which pays out up to £1,000. Unlike many sites you are not required to download and install any software. This means it should work on a Apple Mac as well as a Windows PC (and also Linux!). All you need to do to play is open a free account and register a debit card, credit card or e-wallet such as neteller, Moneybookers or BACS. They even accept Paypal! Deposit limits vary from as low as £5 to a whopping £50,000. Being such a large brand you'd perhaps worry that Sky's customer service might be a little impersonal. It seems quite the opposite. They offer 24 hours a day 7 days a week free telephone support, online live chat and a library of FAQs.
Sky started life as a satellite TV provider and at it's core it still is. However they've been positioning themselves as a broadcaster and content supplier for some years now. Their heavily promoted broadband business is the main symptom of their urge to break out beyond traditional broadcast media. They've also recently started an on-demand TV business but Sky Vegas (and the rest of their online gaming business) is their only real foray into the internet. Given the massive success of their satellite, broadcast and broadband business', Sky Vegas looks like a winner.
