Cool Cat Casino Review
Cool Cat Casino is apart of the Virtual Casino Group. They accept US players and run on Real Time Gaming software.
Cool Cat has been online since 2008. And while they haven’t been without issues, you can’t overlook the efforts they’ve made to fix them. Between correcting their mistakes, offering huge bonuses and more games than other RTG properties, I think they’re worth a look.
But read our review and decide for yourself.
- Large player traffic
- Above average quality of games
- Social, recreational player focused
Cool Cat’s Game Selection
What’s interesting about Cool Cat is that they have games you won’t find at other Real Time Gaming locations. The biggest differences are in their slot themes and video poker variations.
You can play their entire library of games in the download. But this is only available for PCs. Mac and Linux users will have to use the instant play casino. About 75% of the total game selection is available there.
There is a mobile section too. I’ll explain that in a second. For now, here’s an overview of the games you can play from your PC:
Take your pick from 3 and 5 reel classic and video slot machines. They even have their own branded Cool Cat slot.
There are lots of themes to choose from. Choose from options like Bonkers, Diamond Mine, Crazy Vegas, Luck 8 and Hidden Riches. Ocean Oddities and Small Fortune are two themes not available at all RTG casinos.
Cool Cat has progressive jackpot machines too. Play themes like Aztec’s Millions, Shopping Spree or Jackpot Piñatas for your chance at thousands, even millions, of dollars.
Play fan favorites like Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Red Dog, Tri-Card Poker and Vegas Three Card Rummy.
There are 7 blackjack games to choose from. This includes European Blackjack, Perfect Pairs, Face Up 21, Pontoon, Blackjack, Match Play 21 and Super 21.
Cool Cat Casino has more video poker variations than any other Real Time casino I’ve been to. They have more than 15. Play games like Pick’em Poker, Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker Deluxe and All American Poker.
They have more specialty games, too. Play games like 5 Diamond Blackjack, Craps, Sic Bo, Keno, Roulette and Lucky 8’s.
Cool Cat Casino Has Mobile Games Too
Cool Cat is mobile optimized. You can access their site from your iPad or iPhone.
The first thing I noticed is that their site is different from all other RTG casinos. It looks like a website, whereas the others are just a list of games. From their site you can check their promotions, make a deposit and contact support.
They have 16 games you can play. There is one Blackjack option and the rest are slots. You play the games from your browser; you don’t need to download anything.
‘Cool’ Promotions From Cool Cat Casino
Note: When reviewing their casino, I noticed that they list different promos on their website than their mobile casino. But according to support their offers aren’t exclusive to any one device. You can take part in any offers you want.
Here are their top promotions.

Make a deposit and receive a $100 credit. On top of that you’ll have 5 days to play slots to win as much as you can. You’ll receive $1 for every $1 you win, up to $1,000.
If you deposit more than $1,000, they will convert the remaining balance up to $500 into another bonus. Again, for every $1 you win, you’ll receive a $1 bonus.
This offer has a 30x play through for slots and 60x for table games and video poker.

Our Opinion: Are They As Cool As Their Name?
What we like about Cool Cat Casino
The best thing about their casino is their offers. I like the ‘no rules’ offers where there is no play through requirement. The second best thing is that they have more games than your standard RTG casino. Their mobile site is better too.
What we do not like about Cool Cat Casino
I’d like to see an Android compatible platform. Their reputation could be better, too.
Has There Been a Scandal?
There isn’t one event or situation that has tarnished their reputation. Instead, back when they first started they had management issues. This led to slow payments and response times. And they were blacklisted on sites like Casino Meister.
But now they’ve worked together with Casino Meister to remedy all legit complaints. They’ve now been upgraded to probation status.
You can’t beat a casino willing to do that.
Most other complaints or reviews are too old to trust. They haven’t been updated in 2-4+ years.
How to Make a Deposit
You can make a deposit using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Visa/MC Vouchers, Wire Transfers, Click2Pay, UKash, Sofort and Neteller.
How to Make a Withdrawal
You can request a cash out using Neteller, Skrill, bank wires or checks. There is a $500 minimum for wires and $100 for checks.
How to Contact Support
If you have any questions you can contact support using live chat, email ([email protected]) or by phone (1-888-441-6693).
I contacted their support and they were fast, friendly and helpful. It was a great first impression on me.
