On its homepage, Noble Casino proudly bears the tagline, "Real games for real players". And this serves to forewarn against anyone seeking modern frills. Yes, this online casino site looks basic and lacks in certain features, but there's real quality hidden amidst the 300+ Playtech games.
Newbies who arrive at the casino site are eligible to deposit anywhere from $20 to $100 and receive a 100% Noble Casino welcome bonus. After claiming the signup offer, you will be given 30 days to meet 25x wagering requirements on the total combined value of your cash deposit and bonus credit. In our experience, 30 days is a very reasonable timeframe.
A 100% welcome offer up to $100 certainly comes across as basic, and doesn't lead on to much else in the way of deals. A daily promo calendar is made available, but doesn't get much more exciting than reloads or cashback. Nevertheless, the deals can be useful when paired with the 25x play-through requirements.
Keeping an eye on your long-term wagering makes sense here, as Casino Noble is willing to provide one comp point for every $10 worth of real-money wagering. After generating 100 comp points, you will then be eligible to convert them back into cash. By joining the VIP scheme and climbing through the Emerald, Diamond and Black Diamond tiers, you can command better rates of point conversion.
Promotions are already in short supply, and so there are no Noble Casino Canada exclusives to highlight here. The one silver lining to seize hold of is that all deals can be claimed in CAD.
As you can see, a there are strong building blocks in place:
However, there are places for improvement:
What we initially noticed is that the two main access options are shown on the homepage. Listed on the top-level menu is a "Download" button that details a list of images and instructions to explain how you can install Noble Casino on your desktop device. Please be aware, however, that this option is only open to Windows devices and no other operating system.
If your device is powered by MacOS, then your best option is to click on the "Instant Play" button shown on the homepage. This will lead to a popup appearing (make sure to run Adobe Flash), after which you can "Play for Real" and register a new account and then proceed to access the browser-based casino lobby. Windows players can also utilise this access option if they wish.
Noble Casino is partnered with Playtech as the only software provider. As you can see, though, this hasn't stopped the library from covering all sorts of categories. The likes of video slots, progressive jackpots, and table and card games all lead the line. Then there are niche gaming areas that play host to video poker, arcade, scratch and multiplayer.
As a lobby, this one responds well when accessed, despite lacking the polish we would expect of a modern online casino. You only have to hover the cursor over a category and then any available subcategories will appear. These come in useful when navigating the many slots, tables and jackpots to play.
This was always going to be a problematic area of the Noble Casino review. Just to be clear, there isn't a mobile site or any apps. The usage of an out-dated interface means that it's not capable of working with the very latest smartphones and tablets. Only a future revamp of the site or the introduction of Android and iPhone online casino apps can correct this.
Playtech is actually one of the few software providers that can develop a full suite of in-house games that also includes live dealers. Therefore, it's disappointing to see that Noble Casino doesn't have any live dealers. As such, you will need to go elsewhere for the best live casinos in Canada.
Considering there are no live dealers, this places greater demand on the virtual table games. Fortunately, these have been well-designed by Playtech to include the look of realistic felt and the sounds we all expect of a roulette wheel or the quick dealing of cards.
With Roulette, you can sample French, European or American rules. For added variety, you can turn to 3D Roulette, Classic Roulette, Club Roulette or Multi-Wheel Roulette. As for Blackjack, why not try the likes of 21 Duel Blackjack, Blackjack Peek, Blackjack Surrender, Blackjack Switch or Pontoon?
Poker is also strongly represented, with virtual tables on hand to run Caribbean Stud, Casino Hold'em, Pai Gow Poker and Tequila Poker. If you prefer video poker, then Casino Noble can provide Aces & Faces, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker or Deuces Wild instead.
For as good as the tables are, we couldn't help but steer toward the elite range of video slots. And with so many to explore, it was easier for us to search the slots by whether they had 5-10 paylines, 15-20 or more than 25. Other search options included multi-spin, all ways and progressive.
Tucked away on the long list of video slots are impressive titles like Battle of the Gods, Buffalo Blitz, Cinerama, Daring Dave, Dolphin Reef, Dragon Kingdom, Easter Surprise, Fortune Hill, Ghosts of Christmas, Hot Gems, Ice Hockey, Miss Fortune, Ocean Princess and Panther Moon.
As for the software's random number generator (RNG), Noble Casino was willing to make payout percentages available as of January 2019:
Research into past winners was tricky, but Noble Casino actually reports in the preview area that user Cari M won $1.8 million by playing Gold Rally. And it's certainly possible, what with Playtech progressive jackpots being capable of increasing into the millions.
Anyone seeking their own fortune will need to select something to play, of course. Having tried out the range, we would have to recommend the several Age of the Gods slots. Beyond those, you can also look to Beach Life, Captain's Treasure, Everybody's Jackpot, Funky Fruits, Jackpot Giant and the Pink Panther for jackpot potential.
What's great about the cashier is that you can use Instadebit or iDebit for deposits and withdrawals. Just to clarify, CAD deposits can start from $10 and withdrawals from $20. As for your top options, Instadebit requires only two business days for processing, while iDebit needs an extra one to five days for your bank to process the transaction.
Other available payment methods are listed as paysafecard, NETELLER, Skrill, VISA, MasterCard, ecoPayz and Interac Online. Although not suitable for withdrawals, Interac can be combined with your local bank account to facilitate safe and secure deposits.
With online casinos, it's almost a universal policy that they will ask new players to verify their account before allowing the withdrawal of funds. This will lead to the fraud team reaching out to ask for image scans to prove a player's identity, address and payment method. We advise you to comply as swiftly as possible or else risk further delays when cashing out.
We found the cashier page to be particularly informative, but you can also read up on user licence, fair gaming, security, privacy, cookies, responsible gambling and more. A FAQ page, meanwhile, can be found from the help area and will give you answers to common issues relating to logins, lobby and cashier.
The support page should be your first destination if you want to access the Canadian telephone number. On this page, you can also find email addresses listed for support, cashier and tech if you would prefer to submit a written enquiry. And the same goes for live chat, but this option is available only after signing in.
One drawback for the brand is that the security system isn't consistently applied. Both the main site and instant-play site were flagged as unsecure in our browser, meaning that any data sent by players isn't securely encrypted. This is a level of protection that will only be available via the download platform, which is solely accessible on Windows.
The situation is much better when discussing the fairness, given that Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) handles the independent testing of Casino Noble's RNG software. After consulting the latest payout results from January 2019, everything seemed to be running fine and within acceptable limits.
Noble Casino was opened in 2009 and the visual branding looks like it hasn't changed since then. It seems to be an overlooked brand in a complex corporate pyramid where the operating company, ElectraWorks Limited, is owned by Bwin.Party, which is then owned by GVC Holdings.
After checking out Casino Noble with other online gambling portals, we were unable to find a significant number of complaints. Obviously, that's positive, but it could also be due to a low active player-base at the brand. Just to clarify, anyone wishing to complain to the licensing authority should seek out the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.
Real-money wagering is denied for users living in these locations: Afghanistan, Asia, Belgium, Bermuda, Bulgaria, China, Congo-, Cuba, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France (including foreign territories), Grenada, Haiti, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Myanmar, New South Wales (Australia), North Korea, Pakistan, Palestine, Poland, Portugal, Philippines, Russian, Rwanda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Samoa, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, UK (including foreign territories), US (including foreign territories), Wallis & Futuna, and Zimbabwe.
After a quick check with the terms and conditions, we were able to confirm that CAD was accepted as one of the core currencies. And this brought the convenience of being able to wager in our own currency. After further exploration, the only other main feature worth reporting is that Noble Casino has a Canadian telephone line, which definitely deserves praise.
Moving on, what we would like to see from Casino Noble is a commitment to implementing a French option in the settings. As it stands, there's no such option for French-Canadians, whether they are playing by the download or instant-play casino.
With no encryption in place at the no download casino, we would advise only signing up through the downloadable Nobile Casino platform. This is only available on Windows, but it offers the security of keeping your personal data and payment details safe. After installing the software, you can complete the signup form and first deposit in minutes.
Noble Casino doesn't come across as a flashy option, what with the old appearance and lack of promotional activity, not to mention the absence of live dealers and mobile access. Nevertheless, what you can enjoy is a quiet location where the best gaming options are the hit video slots and multi-million-dollar progressive jackpots from Playtech.
