Total Gold is an online and mobile casino that made its way onto the internet towards the backend of 2014, promising ‘amazing customer support’, ‘fast and easy payouts’ and ‘huge jackpots’. These are quite some claims and, if they are genuine claims, Total Gold is going to be the 24 karat nugget that it claims to be. What we’re going to do is take a much closer look to see if these claims can be backed up. We have to say at this point, having simply landed on the homepage at www.totalgold.com, things are looking good.
Before you can get started at Total Gold, you must sign up for a new account, which you can do from your smartphone or tablet, or you can take the comfy option and signup from a laptop or desktop machine. You will need the usual personal and contact details, as well as details from a valid debit card, which is solely used for identification purposes. No CVV numbers are taken, meaning that no funds can be requested without your verification. Once you have completed the registration process, you can hit the lobby and look for your favourite games.
When you complete the registration process at Total Gold, you are instantly rewarded with a free £10 no-deposit bonus. Free casino cash is hard to come by these days, so this is already a good offer but wait until you hear what’s coming next…
Your very first deposit at Total Gold is boosted by an unusual bonus feature – certainly in casino terms. Make a deposit of £20 or more, and you will receive a spin of the Golden Wheel for the chance to win a guaranteed bonus of between £40 and £1,000. You will receive further free spins of the Golden Wheel as you play more real-money games at Total Gold. This unique offer is then followed up by a more traditional bonus, which is a 200% second deposit bonus of up to £200.
Total Gold is advertised as only supporting iOS and Android devices like the iPhone, iPad and Galaxy presently, although no apps are required to be installed. All games play from your device’s web browser. Therefore, as we proved with our little Blackberry Playbook, it is possible to access the games at Total Gold from non-supported devices too.
The mobile casino platform used by Total Gold is the same platform as used by websites like Foxy Casino. The Dragonfish/Globalcom-powered mobile software offers a stable and reasonably comfortable environment from which you can enjoy the choice of mobile slots and other casino games for smartphone and tablet users. This isn’t the best software on the internet, as it is fiddly to use from smaller-screen devices, but it’s a long way from the worst we have encountered. If you’re playing from a tablet like the iPad or Galaxy Tab, the software is perfectly easy to use but from the Galaxy Mini or an older iPhone, for example, the navigation becomes a little frustrating. However, overall this is a small flaw to a largely high-quality mobile casino platform.
There is a decent choice of games on offer at Total Gold, including mobile slots, traditional casino table games, progressive jackpots and more. Is you enjoy video slots, you will be pleased to hear that Total Gold offers a large portion of the Touch range of mobile slots from NetEnt, which are pretty much the benchmark for top quality video slots. Titles like Twin Spin (Touch), Lights (Touch) and Flowers (Touch) can all be enjoyed from your mobile at Total Gold.
If you enjoy chasing big jackpots, the handful of progressive mobile slots will get your blood pumping too. Especially when you consider that games like Millionaire Genie and Ultimate Universe regularly offer multimillion pound progressive jackpots!
