About

Licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission in Quebec, Canada, Spectra Casino offers a new face on the online gambling scene, as well as an online poker room and bingo hall powered by Globalcom and managed by Aqua Gaming. Spectra received their Kahnawake gaming license (Number 0053) on December 21, 2000, and soon after became a member of the Interactive Gaming Council. As a member of IGC, Spectra Casino agrees to abide by the Council's Code of Conduct, which imposes strict guidelines for responsible operations and becoming conduct of online casino operators. Spectra is also bound by the regulations of the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, which is one of the internet's premiere online gaming regulators. Spectra Casino is audited on a monthly basis, thus confirming payout percentages consistently averaging over 96%.

Casino Software

Real Time Gaming (RTG), powers the new software at Spectra Casino. In addition to the realistic and sharp graphics characteristic of Real Time Gaming, the software platform features several user friendly components, such as easy access to game rules, banking options with the online casino cashier, game navigational controls, customizable controls like full-screen playing mode, playing speed (adjustable to the n'th degree) and ambient sounds, and access to mini games ranging from slots to blackjack. Built into the software platform are password protected account monitors designed to automatically generate financial statements and playing histories detailing dealt cards and finalized hand results. Securitized with 128-bit encryption, the software is available in a downloadable form via the SpectraCasino.com website or by CD, which can be freely ordered through customer support. Preparations to supply a Flash version are underway.

While much is still to be known about the future of this new site, it appears that Spectra is making an attempt to up the entertainment value of their online gaming offering through their bingo and poker site, as well as through an acquisition of interesting objects and iconic memorabilia, much to the effect of Golden Palace, but with a different taste perhaps.

Bonuses & Promotions

The bonuses and promotions are diverse at Spectra Casino. The Welcome Bonus for new players is multi-tiered one covering two deposits. Players can get 100% Free on the first time deposit up to $100, while 50% Free on the second deposit up to $400 ($250 free) combine for a Welcome Bonus of $350 Free. $100 monthly reload bonuses are also available on all future deposits. The Welcome Bonus must be claimed within seven days of opening a real money account - So players should not stall in doing so.

As for wagering requirements, we find these to be quite fair. There is only a small 20x Bonus Play-Through required, with game exclusions of Craps, Baccarat and War. Instead of offering small play-through percentages on strategy games, Spectra Casino excludes some, but gives room for others. If you are stuck on playing Craps, Baccarat or War, this bonus is not for you. However, video poker counts 100% towards the play-through, while blackjack contributes 50%. If you like playing these two games, these are great bonus terms and conditions. Players also have the option of claiming 10% cash back on all deposits made with NETeller, MoneyBookers, Click2Pay, FirePay or wire transfers (not eligible to be used in conjunction with other bonuses). Monthly awards include $500 Free each month to the player who wagers the most in thirty days (redeemable once every six months), while three new account holders who wager the most for the first month of their account being opened will share $1,000 ($500/$300/$200).

The Player Rewards and Comp Program works as a four-tiered VIP Club, which all real money players are automatically given membership into upon opening an account. The first tier is the Silver Level, which entitles daily credit card limits of $1,500, weekly limits of $5,000 and monthly limits of $10,000, regular entry to weekly promotions and guaranteed fast payouts. The Gold Level does the same, except with higher depositing limits, higher wagering options, 10% cash back, random cash bonuses, invitations to promotions and tournaments and even faster payouts. The Platinum Level goes a step further with even higher deposit limits, higher bet limits (up to $2,000 per hand), 30% cash back on all purchases, special cash bonuses, random cash bonuses, annual gifts, access to VIP private customer support, invitations to promotions and tournaments and faster payouts. The Diamond Class entitles players to all of the aforementioned, but with higher deposit limits up to $20,000 per day, higher bet values up to $2,500 per hand, 40% bonuses on all deposits and the fastest payouts of all. Comp point conversion ratios range from level to level, but get as good as 1 point for every $5 to $10 wagered at most of the games offered. An accumulation of 100 points is convertible to $1.

Games & Payouts

Spectra Casino offers an adequate lineup of games developed by Real Time Gaming. These include eighteen varieties of Video Poker (good payout schedule on Deuces Wild), multi-hand blackjack, several mini slot games, video slots, realistic one-armed bandit three reels, and progressive jackpots normally accumulating to over $2 million on a regular basis. All of these combine to over eighty games total (at the time time of this online casino review), with frequent new game releases on the horizon.

In terms of payout percentages, Spectra Casino offers odds equal to or better than Vegas. All payouts conform to Nevada Gaming rules, and allegedly average over 96% on an ongoing basis. Although payout reports are not published for players to view, Spectra Casino is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, which means they are held to supplying minimum fair gaming standards. Real Time Gaming software has also been verified by Technical Systems Testing to divulge random and unpredictable winnings corresponding to fair odds and minimum payouts. Frequent wins attest to these payout rates, and can be viewed on Spectra Casinos "Recent Winners" page. Multi-thousand dollar wins are posted here, and correlate to monthly to wagering awards. The player who wagers the most in a single month will win $500, while three new players who wager the most in the first month of their account being opened will share $1,000.

Online Cashier

Security of private information and financial transactions are a given at the Spectra Casino online cashier. With transactions facilitated by Aqua Gaming, 128-bit data encryption and Secure Socket Layer firewall technology is used for all securitized protocols. This is the same online technology used by the world's leading financial institutions, and so players should feel safe knowing that unauthorized access to the platform is blocked and prohibited. All transactions are processed in Dollars, which other currencies will be converted to according to the exchange rate at the time of the transaction. Anti-fraud prevention protocols are in place, including the use of withdrawal faxback forms and multiple identity checks. Additionally, a detailed audit trail is logged for every transaction made with the Spectra Casino cashier.

Available deposit methods include a variety of the Web's most secure and trusted eWallets as well as traditional methods such as credit cards, wire transfers and money orders. Neteller, FirePay, MoneyBookers, Click2Pay and ECO Card are accepted at Spectra, and only require registration at the website of the preferred payment method. Thereafter, players only need to login to the online casino software, click on the Banking options, click the Deposit button and provide one's account information. Wire transfers usually come with a small bank fee ($10 to $20), but are a highly secure and efficient way to transfer funds - especially in large amounts. Spectra Casino rewards players who use this payment method by issuing a 5% bonus on each transaction ranging from $500 to $4,999 and a 7.5% bonus on transactions ranging from $5,000 to $10,000. For any transfer over $10,000, players are advised to contact customer support to discuss a personally catered bonus.

As mentioned earlier, withdrawals are carefully handled. The processing and approval times at Spectra Casino take between one to three days, while the actual reception of funds depends on the specific withdrawal method being used. Available methods include Visa Card (when possible, withdrawals processed as refunds), NETeller (no fees, normally received shortly after approval), Checks (minimum amount of $50; received in mail 10-14 days) and Wire Transfers (minimum amount of $500 to be processed without a fee; under $500 comes with a $35 fee).

Gaming Policies

Spectra Casinos Gaming Policies are in compliance with fair gaming standards and Kahnawake Gaming Commission regulations. Players must agree to the Terms of Use for using the software before downloading. These terms essentially protect Spectra Casinos intellectual rights, and inform the player of their own rights and responsibilities. Speaking of responsibilities, Spectra Casino requires each player to be fully responsible for determining the legality of online casino gambling as deemed by the governing authority in the player's residence. Players are not obligated to play with real money at any time, but must be of legal gambling age to access the website. The terms and conditions posted on the Spectra Casino Website are legally binding between the player and casino, and should be read over by the player from time to time. In addition to setting forth disclaimers of liability, grounds for account closure and promotion and bonus conditions are covered in the T&C's.

Casino Customer Service

Customer support is available at any time of the day and week, including all holidays. Spectra employs a highly trained, web customer support outsourcing that can be reached toll-free telephone and email. Telephone support is immediately handled, while most email inquiries are replied to within 24 hours. An email submission form is available through the software platform, thus facilitating communication and guaranteeing the reception of all inquires (No claims of never receiving one's email or losing it in the spam folder).

There is also a helpful Frequently Asked Questions page on the SpectraGames.com website, covering a variety of issues, including but not limited to information security, legality, software and installation and downloads, gambling for fun, getting started, computer system requirements, gaming odds, cash-ins and banking options and promotions.

Awards

Spectra Casino is a young entity, and so has not been the direct recipient of any major awards at this time. We are looking for great things to come from this online casino, and will update this section with any formal recognitions from online gaming bodies and players.
