After making a big impression in the American market in 2016, Ignition Casino is now available to the Australian marketplace with a full range of casino games available on desktop or on mobile.
Ignition’s aim is to supercharge your experience with high intensity online action. There are literally hundreds of pokies games to choose from, plus a full array of table games, including seven different types of blackjack, as well as video poker and specialty games such as Bingo and Keno. There’s also an excellent poker room.
If variety and ease of play is what you are after, then Ignition gives you all that and more. What’s better, they are constantly expanding their offering.
The quality of welcome bonuses can never just be judged by the topline figure with the devil in the detail.
Ignition’s $1,000 matched welcome bonus for casino customers can be claimed when you sign up. Put simply, whatever you deposit, you will also get back in bonuses. There is a 25x playthrough requirement, with different games counted differently in calculating this. For example, playing pokies will be counted as 100%, but table games are just 20%. You see what we mean by the devil in the detail.
The Poker Bonus is the same at $1,000 matched to your first deposit. You reclaim this deposit by earning poker points in the first 30 days of playing with Ignition. You can check out how the poker points system works on Ignition’s website.
With games sourced from multiple developers, there are hundreds of games available through Ignition. As well as RealTime Gaming, Ignition features games from Betsoft, Rival and Genesis Gaming. There are classics like Cleopatra’s Gold and Aztec’s Treasure as well as unique titles in a multitude of formats and categories. There is a also a full description of the rules, features and bonuses of each of the games.
Do you like Blackjack? Ignition offers eight different types of Blackjack games, including Classic, New Blackjack, Single Deck, Double Deck, European, Perfect Pairs, Classic Single Deck and Zappit Blackjack.
As for other table games, there are a wide variety of 11 games on offer, including Blackjack, Roulette and Craps.
When you add in video poker and other specialty games, there is a world of casino fun available at your fingertips.
Ignition Poker has emerged from Bovada Poker and those familiar with that platform will notice the similarity of platform and layout here. It is a brand new poker room however and connects with your Ignition casino account.
Playing Ignition poker is simply a matter of downloading the poker software and start playing while mobile play is also available, but only in cash games, not tournaments.
Cash games include the usual fixed limit, pot limit, and no limit hold ‘em and Omaha and Omaha-Hi Lo. There is also a fast-paced game called Zone Poker, where players have 15 seconds to act.
There are also bonuses for both Royal Flushes and Bad Beats when playing Texas Hold’Em Cash Games.
In terms of tournament play, there is an amazing $1.5 million in guaranteed weekly prize pools. On Sunday over $460,000 is guaranteed to be given away, including one $100,000 tournament with a first prize of $20,000. There are also special series event tournaments, with prize pools up to $3 million, while at the other end of the scale, there are also monthly Freeroll tournaments.
There are also six different types of Sit ‘n’ Go tournaments with a variety of buy-ins and up to 45 players.
Both the casino and poker sections of the site are fully mobile compatible, with some minor restrictions, such as not being able to play poker tournaments.
Depositing is fast and easy. Players can use Visa or MasterCard, while the increasingly popular Bitcoin can also be used.
In terms of withdrawals, there are two main options, Bitcoin, which is processed within 1-2 days, and cheque, which obviously takes a bit longer. There are maximum withdrawal limits per transaction, so be sure you check that as well as any additional fees and charges.
There is no Live Chat function available currently with Ignition, but that should not detract for their level of customer service. They have a 24-hour toll free number which is extremely helpful, while they can be reached via contact form and email. Reviews on the speed and nature of their customer service are overwhelmingly positive.
Ignition is a welcome new player in the Australian casino scene. Having already built a strong reputation for its variety, functionality and reliability, Ignition is ready to make its impression on our shores.
While it is new, it is backed by some long time players in the online gambling space, and is regarded as a safe option. The withdrawal and deposit options are not as broad as some of its competitors, but these are likely to expand in the future.
