Finding the right online casino can be harder than you’d imagine. There are multiple factors to consider. Is it available in my location? Does it accept my currency? Are there suitable methods for me to deposit and withdraw cash? Does the site have the kind of games that I want to play? How good are the bonus packages? Luckily, you can find all of the information relating to Black Diamond Casino in this review.

Firstly, Black Diamond Casino is no flash in the pan. It’s been around since 2009 and you get the impression that it’s a site you can trust. Curacao - a rather pleasant looking island in the Caribbean - is the jurisdiction under which this casino is licensed and regulated by the Curacao Gaming Commissioner. Black Diamond Casino is a Top Game software powered casino and offers gaming to U.S customers. Aside from U.S dollars, the following currencies are accepted: Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Euros and South African Rand. There is even the option to deposit Bitcoin should you so wish. The website supports multiple languages (English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish) and various deposit and withdrawal methods.

As well as being a Top Game casino, the site has games supplied from a variety of companies including Octopus Gaming, Pragmatic Play and Visionary iGaming. There are over 100 different games to choose from and whilst the primary focus is on slots, there is also the option to play live casino games, table games, video poker and Keno. You can play direct from your browser, with support offered to Mac, Linux and Windows operating systems. With Black Diamond Casino, mobile support is offered too, allowing you to game on the go as well as at home. Mobile play is possible via your phone’s web browser and also via the Black Diamond Casino mobile app developed by Zynga.

Signing up at Black Diamond Casino

With Black Diamond Casino, one account is - allegedly - all you need to enable you to switch between platforms and devices. In reality this does not appear to be the case, as you only seem to be able to sign into the mobile app via your Facebook account. Signing up for your web based account is easy though. From the Black Diamond Casino homepage, you need to find the large ‘Join Now’ button which is located in the top right corner. Once selected, you simply follow the steps listed on screen.

When signing up you’ll need to provide your name and email address. You’ll also have to create a username and password - so be prepared to think up a name! Next step is to choose your currency. The minimum deposit amount is €25. Before you’re able to withdraw money, Black Diamond Casino will request some proofs of details from you as well. You'll be expected to provide a copy of a valid photo id such as a driver’s license, passport or national identity card to prove that you are old enough to play, and a recent utility bill no older than 3 months, to prove your registered address.

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome (bonus and other offers) at Black Diamond Casino

When you’ve been around as long as Black Diamond Casino has, you know that to get new customers your welcome bonus game has to be strong. So this is an area where Black Diamond Casino really excels. There is a pretty substantial offer available on sign up, sure to entice any new player. Given the predominance of slot games on the site, it’s no surprise that the welcome bonus is geared towards Black Diamond Casino slots. Free spins are offered when you sign up and can be received with no deposit required. There’s also a bonus scheme that offers high percentage matches on your initial deposits and could see you net up to $5,000 in bonuses. This scheme is very generous if you’re able to make full use of it. Download the Black Diamond Casino Zynga app and you’ll receive free coins to use in app.

Finally, new players could also benefit from a no deposit bonus chip that gives you money to use in the casino. It’s worth bearing in mind that the no deposit bonus has a much higher wagering requirement in place that prevents you from making early withdrawals. The bonuses on offer at Black Diamond Casino aren’t only restricted to new players either, with daily deposit deals that vary depending on the day of the week. There’s also a number of tournaments spread over a variety of game types that players can enter for the chance to win some pretty huge progressive prize pots. The basic principle for most of the tournaments is that you receive points for every bet wagered. Your accumulated points place you on a leaderboard with prizes being dished out to the top spots at the conclusion of the tournament. It’s a great way of giving your games that extra bit of purpose. A quick online search also reveals a number of Black Diamond Casino bonus codes.

Mobile, home?

Mobile gaming at Black Diamond Casino is available via two different methods. You can simply head to the main website via your mobile phone’s internet browser or you can download the Black Diamond Casino Zynga app via the Apple App Store or The Google Play Store for Android. Each offers a very different experience. Let’s start with playing via the browser of your mobile phone. The mobile gaming experience available is a solid, if unspectacular, one. It’s easy to navigate around the site as the same look and functionality exists as when playing via a laptop or PC. But despite these similarities, the mobile experience is a little underwhelming. While the site itself doesn't feel dated, the same can’t be said of the slots on offer. The lack of colour pop on the screen and dated fonts and symbols feels really obvious when compared to just about any app you might have on you phone. The final nail in the coffin is the even more limited amount of games on offer for mobile gaming. There are only three classic slot games and a solitary video poker offering.

The Black Diamond Casino app feels like a completely different beast to its web based counterparts, almost confusingly so, with no correlation between the main site and the app. The theme and layout is so different that I had to double check I had downloaded the correct app. Whilst the website is understated, with a black background and easy to navigate layout, the app is anything but. It’s more glitzy and colourful than its web counterpart, and not in a good way. It looks and feels tacky. There's seemingly no crossover of games either. None of the offerings from the app are available on the website. So if you enjoy novelty movie based slots like Black Diamond Casino’s Grease Reels / The Munsters / The Wizard of Oz on the app, you won’t be playing it on the main site. The only real correlation therefore, between website and app, is the availability of the VIP Programme.

All players are VIP, but some are more VIP than others

On the surface, the Black Diamond Casino VIP programme seems pretty extensive. There are numerous levels, Basic, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Titanium and Master, with better bonuses and features available as you progress through the ranks. To make this progression you must earn VIP Points, and pass from one points tier to the next. Reach Master level and you’ll receive Birthday and Anniversary bonuses, higher bet limits on games, larger withdrawal limits on cash and bonus, dedicated promotions, exclusive tournaments, dedicated VIP host and invitations to exclusive events. In addition to cash rewards, there’s also the opportunity to win “luxurious trips around the world and the latest tech gadgets”. All of which sounds great. But there’s a problem. Nowhere does it explain how you earn VIP Points. Is it by depositing large sums? Playing regularly? Winning big? Who knows. There is zero information on how you actually accumulate points. 

The VIP scheme on the mobile app is almost as confusing. The tiers are completely different to those on the website: Sapphire, Emerald, Gold, Platinum, Ruby, Diamond, Black Diamond, Yellow Diamond, Blue Diamond. With the app you at least find out how to earn points. The VIP overview tab states that you earn VIP Points from buying coins and levelling up. When playing you can also be awarded bonus VIP Points. I would recommend hitting the more info tab and viewing the Loyalty Lounge explanation video. It provides no actual explanation about the VIP scheme but is so poorly made that it’s hilarious to watch. I’ve seen better acting in a 5 year olds nativity play.

Black Diamond Casino slots, slots, more slots and a couple of other things

As mentioned elsewhere, Black Diamond Casino’s strongest offerings come in the form of its slots. There's an extensive selection to choose from - with everything from 3-reel classics to 5-reel video slots to progressives, slots with bonuses, features and a whole lot more - so you’re sure to find a game to suit your taste. What’s more, you’ll be able to easily find the kind of game that you want as the Black Diamond Casino games pages are very well organised, giving you the option to sort by Provider, A - Z, Top Games, New Games and Featured Games.

Outside of the Slots, your options are limited though. Whilst all bases are covered with table games of Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack to choose from, there isn’t a great deal of variety aside from an additional Live Casino version of each game. Video Poker is available, but once again limited to few choices. There’s also the option to play Keno and scratch cards. On the whole, there should be enough choices on offer to maintain the interest of players who want to dabble in each different type of game.

Black Diamond Casino is more than a diamond in the rough!

Black Diamond Casino is a well presented site that is easy to use and navigate. Games can be sorted, there is an extensive selection of slots to choose from and the bases are covered when it comes to table games. The site comes with a good reputation having been around since 2009 and is available to US players and those wishing to deposit bitcoin. Where it really falls down is it’s limited mobile gaming experience and horrendous app. So if you’re happy to play sat at your computer, you won’t be disappointed. All in all, whilst it isn’t the diamond in the crown jewels of gaming sites, Black Diamond Casino is a solid environment within which to undertake your gaming.
