Times Square Casino Review
When I first landed on this website’s page, I thought it was based out of New York due to the famous Times Square in the capital. However, I came to learn that this is a purely online casino which I can easily access from any corner of the world. I mentioned from anywhere around the world because, Times Square is registered in Curacao and they are pretty lax on who can play on their platform.

A Little History about Times Square Casino
Time Square Casino is operated by Game Tech Group who have partnered with a subsidiary by the name Supaze Limited of Voukourestiou .The latter is based in Cyprus and is tasked with the day to day activities of the casino.
Maneuvering the Site
When I landed on the about page, at first, I did not understand all the bustling that goes on here. In the background are some taxis that move in all direction and an image of the real New York Times Square, all these seemed to confuse me. However, I came to understand that the developers of this site wanted to create an impression of an extremely busy casino.
The language is also something this kind of got me mixed up. The casino uses some old language when referring to different gaming experiences that they have available. For example, some of the games I clicked on showed me that I could enjoy it “from the comfort of your home computer”. I translated this to mean that most of their games are more suitable for desktops rather than mobile uses.
Banking on Times Square
When I tried to make my first payment with this casino, their default currency was the Euro. I wanted to use my Visa electron to make a payment and I was only able to see Skrill as the only mode of payment until after I logged into my account is when I saw other types of payments modes accepted by this casino. They include Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Postepay, Visa Electron, Visa, iDEAL, Sofortuberwaisung, Nordea, POLi, GiroPay, CartaSi and ePay. This may be a little confusing for a first timer who is perusing through just to see the basics.
For withdrawals, I came to learn that their choices are far much less n the only way I could get my money out of their website was through using the Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, Visa or Bank transfer.
Bonuses that I Got to Taste
I love the bonuses that most online casinos offer and this was also the case with Times Square Casino. When I created my account and logged in, I made my first deposit of €50 and I knew it was just a matter of time before I got my real enrichment. However, this was not the case and I came to learn that for me to enjoy the 300% bonus that they claim to give their customers, I needed to make 3 deposits totaling up to €1,200.
It did not stop there; these deposits were also required to wager 35x before I could withdraw it. What I found a little funny was the fact that the explanation about the 300% bonus is not clearly done on their website leaving a lot of players confused.
The only bonus I have no complains with is the 15% bonus that the casino offers for payments made using certain methods. These are Ukash, Neteller, Skrill, PostePay, Giropay and Sofort. However, there is also a 25x wagering needed before withdrawing these funds. I made my first deposit using Skrill and I was able to get this bonus.
Joining Times Square’s VIP Club
Although I have not yet gained the entry points that will enable me to join the Times Square VIP club, I am not very far and from it and will take some time to write a review on the same. However, I understand that for a player to enjoy this VIP club they need to amass at least 100 comp points (for every €10 deposited, a player earns 1 point). After you acquire the100 points, you can exchange them for €1.
Playing the Games
The games available at Times Square Casino are some of the most interesting I have seen anywhere. The casino is very creative in the words they use to describe these games and the titles are lesser known.
It took me some time to get used to the peculiar description but once I got the hang of it, I was good to go. I just need to view the homepage and use the search button to get to my favorite game!
My Favorite Categories of Games
If you are used to an organized casino with laid out game categories, then you will find this place a little clumsy like I came to learn. By default, the slots are mixed up with all other games on the homepage. I had to figure out how to filter the games and I was able to do so by using the dropdown menu which enabled me to jump straight my favorite category.
The live casino games were my favorite stop and here, I got to enjoy a variety of games including the VIP Blackjack, Sizzling Hot Roulette, Golden Ball Roulette and Club Roulette.
I remember I was at one time mixed up during my registration process. I visited the customer care page and I got the assistance I wanted within a few minutes. However, there are no phone contacts and the only other way of contacting them is through using the contact form available on the page.
Given that this casino is about one year old, having been founded in 2017, Times Square Casino hasn’t put in a lot of effort to improve their services. Although it’s reasonably functional, the developers have a lot to work on if they aim to continue appealing to the average player.
The website is not easy to maneuver and some information, particularly on the withdrawals is not very clear: this is the same with the bonuses. The casino will be a great place to play if they improved on the nitty gritty.
