Games: RV’s official app owns 50+ games, including progressive and traditional slots, video poker, blackjack and roulette. The list of titles is constantly being updated.
Our primary focus at OnlinePokieGame.com is slot games, and the Royal Vegas Casino app gives players another trusted platform to play their favourite titles such as Major Millions, Mega Moolah, Tomb Raider and Thunderstruck II. We’ve spent hours testing the various titles on offer for real money, and despite a few minor glitches, we had no major issues and are genuinely excited to endorse it for our readers.
NB: The Royal Vegas app is found in Apple’s App Store as Regal Vegas Casino, but once you have downloaded it, you can choose to play for real money at Royal Vegas or play money at Regal Vegas. Both interfaces are the same, but the free play version has less games.
Royal Vegas iOS app layout and game-play
The RV app menu features a tab bar down the bottom of your iOS device. The options are self-explanatory: Games, Banking, Promotions, Help and Accounts. Here are some screenshots taken off my iPhone 4S:
The Games tab lists all of the games available on the app. These games are powered by Microgaming software. Once you’ve selected a game, you will be prompted to turn the phone to a landscape position in order to play, and after a short loading period, the game opens. Flick left and you can choose your coin size and how many coins you will bet per line. Flick right you will get an in-depth guide on what triggers bonus features and the unique rules for each game.
In the Banking tab, you can deposit and withdraw money with plenty of supported methods such as cards, E-Wallets and bank transfers. The Promotions tab is where you can view any current promotions and keep an eye on your current rewards level status. The Help tab gives you all the different customer service options available, while the My Account tab shows your Royal Vegas real money balance and gives you the option to auto login.
Royal Vegas iOS pokies
The RV app has numerous pokies titles available for the player, including progressive jackpot titles such as Major Millions and Mega Moolah. Here is the list available at the time of writing.NB: I played all of these on an Iphone 4S and an Iphone 3 with no problems. The only variance between the two was loading times.
Our top three slots on the app
Mega Moolah: The king of the progressive jackpot slots is just as easy to use on an iOS device as it is on your PC.
Mega Moolah is a five reel, 25 pay-line slot which has the biggest jackpot out of any online slot game. The jackpot is triggered at random and can be won while playing the bonus game. During the bonus game a player spins the wheel and can win the mini, minor, major or Mega jackpot.
Mega Moolah also has a 15 free spins bonus which is triggered by three monkeys appearing, the free spins feature can also be triggered while you already on free spins.
Thunderstruck II: Fans of comics would be familiar with the characters in Thunderstruck II such as Thor, Valkyrie, Loki, Odin and Raven. Some of their more famous skills are also included in the game.
The game has five reels and gives players a staggering 243 ways to win, meaning there is 243-pay-lines. The Thunderstruck II logo is the substitute symbol, meaning it can be any other symbol barring the hammer bonus.
Any wins that use the Thunderstruck II logo are doubled during normal and free spins.
If a ‘wildstorm’ feature randomly pops up your entire screen can fill up with Thunderstruck II symbols – meaning you can have huge wins. There are several other free spins features that are available and are triggered by the hammer icon and the Valkyrie symbols.
Isis: This online poker machine has 25 available pay-lines and five reels and has proven to be timeless since its release in 2006. Its theme is based around Egyptian mythology with Isis the Goddess of Nature and magic.
The flying hawk and the Isis icons are the most important in the game. The flying hawk is the free spins symbol while Isis is the wild symbol. The wild symbol not only completes winning combinations it also doubles all wins. Isis is a great game for those who like to play for a while, it often gives you small payouts to keep you interested, but also has the lure of a big win.

Promotions and bonuses

The rewards system is particularly beneficial to slots players because it gives you one rewards point for every credit that you spend. Roulette gives you one point for every 20 points gambled while Video Poker and Blackjack will give you one point for every 20 credits. When you reach 5,000 rewards points you are able to convert them to real money. The exchange rate is $1 for every 1000 points.
The amount of rewards points you earn each month decides which level of rewards membership you are at. The beginning level is silver, while you can progress through gold, platinum and diamond levels as you spend more time playing at Royal Vegas.
Another added bonus with the rewards program is that Royal Vegas is part of the Fortune Lounge Casino group, meaning you can play at any of their online casinos and use their rewards scheme.
