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
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.

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
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.

account, and adding/customizing one's game portfolio are all broken down into

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
