GameAccount review

GameAccount emerged on the scene in 2001, offering something different to the many other internet gambling sites - Skill Games. This allowed users of the site a chance to pit their wits against other players in a variety of exciting online games. The GameAccount website has grown massively in popularity since then and now boasts players in 130 countries worldwide. This gaming platform is registered and licenced in the UK under strict gaming regulations.
 
The layout of the GameAccount site is impressive, with clearly labelled links and options. The ease of navigation allows players to move round the site easily, accessing live information or logging into games. GameAccount prides itself on fairness and integrity, so much so that GameAccount says it is committed to guaranteeing the fairest gaming experience to their customers. Through sophisticated technology, good quality customer service and slick gameplay, GameAccount aims to give every level of player a fair game.

Gameplay - 6/10

With over 30 different games to choose from at GameAccount, there is something for everyone. Favourites include Gin Rummy, Backgammon, 8-Ball Pool, Pyramid Panic and Tournament Blackjack. Muliplayer versions of most games are available to play, although at certain times you may have to wait a little while for opponents to challenge you. If you are playing for money, games start from as little as 25p and go all the way up to £5. The more expensive games normally attract top players competing for bigger prizes or points.

GameAccount has adopted a player rating system on the site. This enables players to compete against peers of a similar level. This is especially handy for the newbie, who doesn’t want to have to face the world champ in their first game. By making the competition fairer we found the games lasted longer, providing a bit more value for money than other skill gaming sites.


Promos - 6/10

New customers joining GameAccount can benefit from a 100 per cent matched bonus up to £100 currently offered on the site. Therefore you get a chance to double your money before you have even started playing. This bonus will have to be turned several times before you can withdraw it, so beware.

There isn’t a loyalty program as such, as players are regularly competing to be top of the GameAccount leader boards to win monthly prizes. There are heaps of big money tournaments you can enter for many of the multiplayer games. Our personal favourite was the blackjack tournaments, where you can win up to £100,000!


Transactions - 5/10

Most major credit/debit cards are accepted as well as money transfer and postal cheques. Making a deposit is fairly straightforward and there is clear instruction on the site to do this. Withdrawals can be made through your account, which clearly displays any winnings you may have accumulated. You can deposit back onto your registered card usually taking 3/5 days. Otherwise you can receive a cheque which can take up to 14 days.

All transactions through GameAccount are handled by Barclays Bank, a very trustworthy financial institution. All Random Number Generators and payouts are audited by Baker Tilly, a well established UK accounting firm.


Customer Service - 6/10

The support at GameAccount is very good and you can often get replies to inquiries whilst playing. The chat rooms have moderators in that can help, especially if you are experiencing any difficulties. The email service is quick, normally taking about 30 minutes for a response, although it may require a few emails to get all the answers you require. The phone line is easy to get through on, except at really busy times. However you won’t be charged if you are held on the line as it is a free call from the UK.
