About

The latest addition to the growing family of Microgaming's VIPER online casino licensees, Villento Casino is a brand new gambling site who not only stands apart from the rest of the pack of new online casinos, but from established gaming sites as well.  Villento, which is actually named
Villento Las Vegas, is the first Microgaming online casino in three years to not be sub-branded. In other words, Villento's owners and management team are not affiliated with, nor operate other online gambling sites. Rather, Villento Casino is the sole creation of independent executives with prior experience in the online gambling industry, who after working behind the scenes operating, managing and marketing some of the biggest brands in online gaming (The Fortune Lounge Group and Platinum Play Casino), decided to develop their very own online casino bred from their cumulative experience.  Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever, highly praised Villento when it was launched in March of 2006, referring to their staff as being highly dedicated, experienced, and knowledgeable about the world of online casino gambling.  So far, Villento Las Vegas has stepped off on the right foot, managing to deliver an authentic virtual Las Vegas Casino Resort with gaming odds and payout percentages better than the the most competitive casinos on the Strip itself.

Casino Software

Villento Casino went all the way when optioning their software platform provided by Microgaming.  As mentioned, Villento uses the latest edition of VIPER, which provides realistic 32-bit graphics and a large selection of classic and modern casino games.  Minimum system requirements for downloading the software are a 32-bit operating system using Windows 95/98/2000/NT/ME/XP, 32 Megabytes of Random Access Memory, 25 Megabytes of hard drive storage space, and a properly installed online connection. Villento Las Vegas also offers a no-download Flash version of the same software platform, enabling players to open Fun accounts and participate in unlimited play-money gambling.  At any time, players can open a real-money account and sign up with Villento's online cashier for preferred accounting methods.

In addition to allowing Selective Game Downloads and upgrades (non-downloaded games are designated by a red dot), the VIPER platform also comes configured with the PlayCheck and CashCheck systems. These password- protected account history monitors, allow players to view all of their real-money transactions from day one, as well as detailed game results for tracking specific gambling sessions and hand outcomes.

For players who opt to download Villento's online software platform, there is a very helpful step-by-step tutorial guiding less experienced computer users on how to get started.  Sections covering Installation, Registering an Account, Logging in to an account, and adding/customizing one's game portfolio are all broken down into Frequently Asked Questions which are explained in an organized and succinct manner.

Bonuses & Promotions

An array of bonuses and promotions are available at Villento, all of which are ongoing mainstay's as part of their comprehensive Player Loyalty Program. The new member bonus is a 100% match deposit up to $100, and triple loyalty points are available on select slot machines for three days out of every week. There are also personalized weekly match bonuses, weekly free cash draws, reoccurring slot machine and table game tournaments with guaranteed jackpots and cash prizes, free giveaways, and surprise tournaments with luxury prizes like vacation getaways and new cars. At the time of writing our Villento Casino Review, the Loyalty Club was throwing a "3 Million on the House" competition awarding three million loyalty points as part of a free draw. Speaking of the Villento Las Vegas Loyalty Club, this is a multi-tiered program that has better perks than many Las Vegas casino resorts. Depending on how much one wagers each month, a status of Club, Silver, Gold and Platinum is automatically assigned to a player. Points calculation is on a scale of one point for every $1 bet on slots, keno and scratch cards and one point for every $2.50 wagered on video poker and table games (aside from craps and roulette).

Claiming a bonus is handled by the Villento Casino Promotions Manager, which provides access to a login page where a player only needs to enter their account number and promotion code provided on the promotions page of their website. Once the bonus is in a player's account, it is managed by Microgaming's newly developed Bonus System, designed to insure proper play-through and prevent inadvertent or intentional bonus abuse. On Villento Casino's website, there is a highly informative Flash movie that explains, step-by-step, how the wager requirement is met and when the bonus is eligible for cashing out. The way the system works is that under a 30x wager requirement (which is the standard wager requirement for most promotions these days), for every $300 a player bets, $10 is automatically transferred from the player's bonus account to their real-money account. If a player runs out of original deposit funds before meeting the wager requirement, the bonus will be used to place wagers, but will still transfer credits between the players cash account and bonus account.  Withdrawals are allowed at any time.  If, however, the player does so before meeting the wager requirement, the original bonus amount will be deemed null and void.  Every wager a player makes, the Bonus System automatically tabulates the play-through conversion, which a player can view in real time while logged into their account.  This is a great convenience compared to some other online casinos in which a player must call customer support to find out how their bonus wager requirement is coming along.

Games & Payouts

There are over 240 online casino games at Villento, most of which can be found in their physical prototype at the best brick 'n mortar casinos on the Strip in Las Vegas. All online video poker machines, slots, progressive games, table and parlor games can be previewed from Villento's website. Average game payouts have been consistently hitting over 96%, while table games are just under the 98% mark.

The slot machines outnumber just about any other online casino (over 160 reel and video slot machines) and are individually branded so that every players palate and preference is met. Slot machines come in single-line and multi-line format, and offer mega spins,  bonus features, free spins and the Largest Progressive Jackpots Online (fourteen total, all of which are updated in real time). Some of the most popular slots include Kathmandu, Major Millions Five-Reel, Big Kahuna, 5-Reel Drive, Thunderstruck, Fantastic Sevens, Cashville, Wheel of Wealth, Winning Wizards, High Five and the newly released Harvey's.

The online video poker machines at Villento Casino include a large selection of classic machines and Poker Pokers. There are at least seventeen different standard video poker games, including the most strategy friendly versions of Jacks or Better and the popular Aces and Faces, Deuces and Joker and Double Bonus Poker. Standard video poker jackpots range from 4,000 to 10,000 coins, not to mention exceedingly large progressive jackpots and consistently high payout percentages.  The Power Poker games allow players to bet between 4 and 100 hands at once, in either 4-play, 10-play, 50-play and 100-play format.

All of the classic table games can be found at Villento, including several versions of Blackjack (paying 3 to 2 for Blackjack and allowing doubling down after a split). Classic, Vegas Strip, European, Multi-hand, Atlantic City, Spanish, and Bonus Blackjack can all be played here. As with all the games, the software provides an easy-to-follow rules chart for each version of online blackjack, including the number of decks used and when the dealer must stand. There are also several versions of Roulette, including European, French, American, Roulette Royale (progressive) and the newly unveiled European Gold.

As for parlor games and scratch cards, Villento offers these to those gamblers who enjoy mixing up their betting. The Villento Las Vegas Online Keno Lounge allows players to bet on up to fifteen numbers in an eighty-number grid.  The scratch cards are fully interactive (the player can scratch them off by moving the mouse or can have the software scratch them instead) and award up to fifty times the original bet made on the card.

Online Cashier

Safe and secure online casino merchants are a major concern for most gamers. Villento Las Vegas knows this all too well and so does a commendable job at protecting their account holders' private information and handling financial transactions. On the "Cashier" page of Villento's website a helpful Casino Cashier Tutorial guides players through the process of utilizing a real-money account.  Covered in the tutorial are instructions on making one's first deposit, withdrawing winnings, the progress of cash outs and billing information. Villento Casino accepts credit and debit cards, yet understands that some player's banks will not honor credit card purchases at online casinos. Therefore, several alternative payment mechanisms are offered, all of which are established eCommerce payment processors in their own right. Before making a deposit with the casino cashier, all players must fund their account with a valid purchase method accepted at the cashier.  All of these are explained in detail on Villento's website, including NETeller, (the standard in online gambling) NETeller InstaCash, Click2Pay, PaySpark, FirePay, PaySafeCard, UseMyBank, UKash, Money Bookers, Delta, Diner's Club International, Visa, Mastercard, eCheck and Money Transfers.

Credit card and outside account numbers are considered classified material, and are only sent over 128-bit SSL encryption security, which is far more secure than some online e-commerce systems. In fact, 128-bit SSL is the same security standard the world's leading financial institutions use on their own computers.
