Until quite recently, Casino Glamour and the other casinos in the Grand Virtual Group didn't allow players from the USA or Canada, but this has recently changed and they now welcome players worldwide. As they are offering new players a $50 gift on their first purchase I thought I would give them a try.

The initial software download was speedy and the installation process quick and simple. Once downloaded, you can choose which games to install and these download quite quickly although the bonus slots take a couple of minutes.

My first impression of the casino is that it had the most impressive selection of videopokers and the weirdest selection of slots that I have ever encountered! They have 14 variants of videopoker including rarities such as One Eyed Jacks and Crazy 8's alongside the more familiar Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better. The multiplay options were very impressive ­ you can play between 1 and 500 hands and there are useful options such as quickdeal ­ very helpful when playing lots of hands, and autosort features which will sort your wins by best hand. The poker was very fast, although depending on the game it seemed to vary between extremely tight and extremely loose.

As for the slots, they are unlike anything I have ever encountered at another casino. In Faerie Tale instead of spinning reels, symbols just disappear and reappear in a random order. It was very difficult to work out the payout table, so in the end I just resorted to spinning the reels and hoping for the best. There is a bonus feature which pops up when three miners helmets appear, but most of the time it pays only 1 x your bet. There is also a free spins feature which pops up with some regularity although it is not particularly generous.

My favorite slot by far though is the new Cactus Jack bonus slot which seemed a little too loose for its own good! There are two features ­ the pick a window feature is triggered by getting 5 of the same symbol on a payline, whereas the free spins are triggered by getting 3 or more horseshoes anywhere on the reels. During a free spins round where prizes are tripled I hit four horse shoes and a boot on one payline, which not only retriggered the feature it also paid just over $1000, not bad for a bet of a couple of bucks.

The banking interface is easy to use and the minimum deposit by credit card is just $5 or by Neteller $20. Payouts via Neteller are next day whereas credit card cashouts take three days.

I found Casino Glamour quite unique, and even the weird slots endeared themselves to me after a while. I will definitely be back.
