The party has been going on for some time at Party Casino - since 1997, in fact. It's a party Aussies are invited too, although you'll have to leave your native currency at home.
Party Casino is part of the bwin.party group, which was formed in March 2011 by the merger of PartyGaming plc and Bwin Interactive Entertainment AG. The company's most famous brand is Party Poker, which was the world's premier online poker room until it pulled out of the American market in 2006. Party Casino's new platform is perfectly optimised for mobile play, and there's a tasty free spins offer to get you started.
So, is Party Casino still worth gate-crashing, or have all the booze, nibbles and interesting guests long dried up? Read on to find out ...
Once you've managed to wangle your way into the party, you'll receive a warm welcome in the shape of a promotional goody bag. Any initial deposit from US$10 up to US$100 is instantly doubled and you receive fifty free spins on any pokie of your choice.
The wagering requirements are industry average - 30x the bonus and deposit. Only two games - Live Casino Baccarat and Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker - do not count towards wagering requirements. Players have up to thirty days to satisfy requirments else all bonuses are lost.
The '50 Free Spins' bonus is actually a US$15 pokies-only bonus than can be used on any online slot. The '50 Free Spins' derives from the notion that 50 spins on a 30 line slot would typically cost US$15, but it's nice to have some flexibility if you'd prefer to play for higher or lower stakes.
Party Casino runs a VIP scheme via 'PartyPoints', and you obtain between one and forty party points per US$200 you wager depending on the particular game you are playing. There are five levels of the VIP scheme to rise through, but the top level - Palladium Elite - is by invitation only.

As always the emphasis at this casino is on pokies, and there are over 150 of them, not including 'classic' pokies. Most of them are pretty mundane, but there are some top titles such as Irish Eyes, Cleopatra and Da Vinci Diamonds. Surprisingly, only six of the pokies are available to play on mobile. There are another 17 pokies available to play with progressive jackpots.
If you prefer table games, then you're going to have to be a fan of roulette and blackjack as aside from baccarat, craps and 'Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker', that's all there is. if you prefer live casino fun, then there's blackjack, roulette and casino hold'em to keep you entertained.
There are nine versions of video poker and a few other games including keno.
The casino has mobile versions for both iOS and Android devices.
If you're familiar with the world of online gambling then you'll know that Party Poker has had a sleek makeover since it was re-launched. Whilst Party Casino has been optimised for mobile, the website's colour scheme is a little dull. It's no Casino Room on the design front.
Games at the site originate from a number of different sources: PartyGaming, Electracade, Cryptologic (WagerLogic), Evolution Gaming, Betsoft and IGT (WagerWorks). That means more than enough titles to keep anyone happy, with only NetEnt and Microgaming missing from the upper echelons of gambling companies.
Available Software: Betsoft, CryptoLogic, Electrade, Evolution Gaming, IGT / Wagerworks.

The party is definitely still rocking at Party Casino, although it's more of a retro party now than a happening event with a contemporary vibe. It's tough to understand why the Party Casino brand has been allowed to stagnate a little while big brother site PartyPoker looks all stylish in silver, orange and black.
There's certainly enough here to keep you entertained, with decent pokies from Betsoft and IGT and an inviting welcome package. All-in-all, you'd have to be something of a drongo to pike out at Party Casino.Sounds good, sign me up!
