Lobby - Split Aces Casino
When I sit down to review an online casino, my goal is to write as objective, honest a review as I can possibly write. I want you to be able to read a comprehensive review of a site and be armed with all the information to be able to make your own decision about whether or not to make an account and deposit. I do, however, understand that players can and will make their own choices regardless of what information is presented. While I believe that everyone is entitled to make up their own minds, in the case of Royal Ace Casino I would be remiss if I didn’t change up my review process a little.

I simply cannot recommend this casino in good faith. If you continue to read this review, you will get a clear picture as to why, along with an honest discussion of some things I like about the casino. At the end of the day, the choice is yours, but consider yourself warned.
Royal Ace Casino is owned by the Ace Revenue Group. This group is listed as the owner of many other casinos, all of whom seem to have black marks on them. I did some further investigating and found that the Ace Revenue Group are in fact themselves part of the Virtual Casino Group.
This is a huge red flag; I have had personal interaction with Virtual on and off over my 20 years in this business, and I can tell you that they are as shady as they come. Every online gambling venture they get involved in seemingly ends up being blacklisted, and yet they somehow manage to survive and even thrive by bringing in new business. If you Google Virtual Casino Group, you can see for yourself how horrible they have been for the online casino industry. Royal Ace is licensed in Costa Rica, which is yet another red flag. Costa Rica has no gambling licenses; all an operator needs to set up shop in the country is to acquire a standard business license.

The fact that Royal Ace doesn’t have a license from one of the more common jurisdictions is likely because there is no way after some due diligence that these guys would ever be approved. Not surprisingly, there are very few restrictions on who can play for real money at Royal Ace Casino. These guys will take deposits from basically anyone, and in fact, they are using payment processors that will accept the highest percentage of cards.
That is not to say that you SHOULD play at Royal Ace, however, if you are tempted, you will probably be able to make a deposit quite easily. Here is one right choice the Royal Ace Casino management team has made: they have selected Real Time Gaming as their software provider. Now, this may very well be because RTG was the only option left who would consider taking their business.
Whatever the reason, at the very least Royal Ace is using a software company that has been in the industry for just as long as they have. I have to assume that the software bill is the only one that Royal Ace keeps up to date so they won’t be shut off.
Real Time Gaming’s software platform is robust and features an excellent array of table games and slot machine titles. The casino is available for play in both download and Instant Play formats. Also, many of the instant play games have been modified for mobile browsers so if you like to play on the go then you will be able to seamlessly at this casino (or at any other RTG-powered brand).
The company continues to upgrade their platform, so hopefully, all of their games will be mobile-friendly in the coming months. This was a very tough category for me to write for this review. Given what I know about the ownership group, I personally don’t want to give you any reason to play here, but in the spirit of being objective, I will discuss a couple of things that are going right for Royal Ace. By using Real Time Gaming’s platform and agreeing to contribute to the network’s progressive jackpots, Royal Ace gives their players the chance to cash in on millions of dollars of possible jackpot wins. There are several RTG network progressives, a couple of which are at the time of this review ready to burst. I always like to play slots games that have excellent bonus games or a massive progressive jackpot. I am forever hopeful that it is going to be me holding up the oversized check with the jackpot amount printed on it.
Royal Ace does not have all the RTG Network Progressive games available at their casino; here are the ones they do have (see if you recognize any of the names! ) It doesn’t take much digging on the casino forum sites to find players complaining about how long it takes Royal Ace Casino to pay out winning players.
