In my opinion, Cryptologic is one of the best casino softwares in use today. Game quality and graphics are good. The common games are all available and high quality, as well as some unique games, such as video blackjack and solitaire. Blackjack play is slower than most other softwares, but not as slow as Boss or Chartwell. Cryptologic offers a jackpot of several million in the game Millionaire's Club. This is probably the largest jackpot ever offered at an online casino. Many of the software's other slots are also popular. Audit reports show the average payout of Cryptologic slots is a few percent below Microgaming, Playtech, Wagerworks, and Rival. Similarly the payout for Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild is below other common softwares. I believe games are fair. My affiliate stats show that the average referred player gains that are close to expectations. As a whole, Cryptologic casinos are reputable.
Game Selection & House Edge
The table below lists the available games and corresponding house edge.
*8-10 pick Keno house edge varies slightly depending on progressive jackpot
*House edge of Slots is estimated based on public game payout data & payout audits
*Super Jackpot Video Poker house edge varies according to size of jackpot, use payout calc for precise value
Cryptologic bonuses are cashable with a wagering requirement. Bonuses are often not given until after completing wagering (post-wager). Wagering requirements and game restrictions vary, so be sure to read the T&C. Several casinos offer a monthly bonus that is similar to the sign up bonus.

Group -- Casinos often are linked together in e group. These groups are listed in the table. I recommend not simultaneously playing two sign up bonuses from the same group. Wait until payment is received, then play at the next casino.
Bonus EV -- EV stands for Expected Value. Bonus EV indicates the average expected gain of the bonus with the following play: Cashable and Post-wager bonuses -- Playthrough the bonus on the listed game with unlimited banrkoll; Sticky and Clearplay bonuses -- Make high variance bets to a 2x target, then playthrough bonus; Free Play and Unique bonuses -- See the listed strategy.
Max Bonus -- The bonus that is given with the maximum allowed deposit for that bonus. If the max value is expressed as one number + another, then there are two bonuses, usually one signup bonus and one deposit method bonus. If the value is expressed as a range, then the bonus is dependent on return from a free play offer.
Bonus % -- Bonus % indicates the ratio between the bonus and your deposit. If a $300 bonus is given on a $100 deposit, the bonus % is 300%.
Wager -- Wager indicates the wagering requirement for the bonus. All wagering requirements are expressed in terms of the bonus. For example, the wagering requirement at Golden Palace is 20x(bonus+deposit). With a $100 deposit, the wagering requirement would be ($300 + $100)x20 = $8000. $8000 is 27x the $300 bonus, so the value in the table is 27xB. Clearplay bonuses may list two wagering requirements -- the minimum wagering requirement and the wagering requirement on the game French Roulette. "0xB / 60xB" indicates that you can cash out your winnings immediately (0xB), and if you complete the playthrough on French Roulette there is a 60xB wagering requirement.
Type -- Cashable bonuses are given at the start of wagering and become withdrawable after completing wagering. Like cashable bonuses, post-wager bonuses are withdrawable after completing wagering. However, they are not given until completing wagering. Sticky bonuses can be bet, but cannot be cashed out. Clearplay bonuses are a special type of cashable bonus offered by many Microgaming casinos games are weighted at different percentages and bonuses are gradually converted to cash while completing wagering. Free play bonuses involve play without making a deposit. After finishing the free play, winnings are credited as a bonus. Unique bonuses have unique rules and do not fit in any of the categories above.
Game -- Game indicates the recommended game to play the bonus.
USA? --"No" means the casino allows no players from the United States. "Yes" means the casino allows players from anywhere in the United States. "Some" means the casino allows players from some US states, but not others. Microgaming casinos typically allow players in 39 US states. They do not permit players from 11 states where gambling is legislated illegal or where there have been related court cases -- Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, Wisconsin, New York and New Jersey.
Notes -- Notes indicates other important things to take note of, such as associated warnings.
