Like any well-oiled machine, it’s not just the exterior of an online casino – its shiny façade, elevated reputation and lucrative promotional campaign – that brings in the players. It’s what’s under the hood that really counts. At Begado Casino, there’s a highly dynamic, yet incredibly lightweight engine that powers all of the games.
Begado doesn’t boast the largest game variety by far. What it does offer is a unique range of games, scarcely seen in the online casino industry. It’s all part of the cutting-edge software developed by NuWorks, a new division of the old time favorite, RealTime Gaming.
Not everyone is going to see the value in what NuWorks has to offer. It’s a simple matter of quality over quantity. If you can appreciate the minimized offerings of a higher quality product, as opposed to a developer that simply copy/pastes its games and slaps new wallpaper over them, Begado Casino just might tickle your fancy.
NuWorks incorporates HD quality graphics with a super-light framework that keeps the casino client moving at top speed. The software achieves such alacrity by installing only the interface of the gaming system to a player’s hard drive. When someone chooses to play a new game at Begado, it is instantly downloaded to the platform, taking only a few seconds to launch. In this manner, any games that players have no interest in will never be downloaded, thus speeding up the load-time immensely.
Begado Casino currently offers 40 online casino games spread across four categories – Slots, Table Games, Video Poker and Specialty.
As with most online casinos, slots make up the bulk of the game offerings at Begado. There are 30 in all, including 29 5-reel video slots and a single 3-reel classic (The Three Stooges II). Of the video slots, 11 of them offer bonus round features, making them indubitably more popular among devoted slots enthusiasts.
All of the slots at Begado offer a progressive jackpot. Being so new to the industry, none of NuWork’s jackpots have built up to incredible height just yet, but with myriad players making the switch, the prizes are bolstering post haste.
Some of the slots are equipped with a unique attribute known as the Feature Guarantee. These games guarantee that a special feature (free spins, bonus round, etc.) will be triggered within a specified amount of spins. There is a compulsory side bet associated with feature guarantee slots, where the side bet essentially pays for the guaranteed trigger. Take Carnival Cash, for example, one of the most popular slots at Begado Casino. The munificent Clown Feature is guaranteed to trigger within 125 spins. The compulsory bet is 5x the bet per pay-line (i.e. $0.20 on a $0.04 per line bet).
Bedago Table Games
Bedago Casino has only the most basic, but also the most popular, card and table games – Blackjack, Baccarat, Let’em Ride, Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, Tri Card Poker and Vegas Three Card Rummy. Blackjack games are played with standard rules, whereas a natural pays 3 to 2, dealer hits soft-17, player can double on any two cards and split aces receive one card.
Bedago Video Poker Games
There are only three variants of video poker currently on the games menu at Bedago, but it’s a nice mix of favorites. Games include Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker. To make things more interesting, especially for avid fans, all video poker games offer the choice of playing a single hand, 3 hands, 10 hands, 52 hands or a staggering 100 hands per play.
Bedago Specialty Games
Keno is the only specialty game on the Bedago roster at present.
