Glimmer Casino is a sister site to Dazzle Casino. It resides on the same Microgaming platform and is powered by ProgressPlay. This UK casino offers a wide range of slots and games that can be accessed on mobile, tablet and desktop. It also offers a number of promotions including a weekly surprise and a VIP room for all players including high rollers.
Join Glimmer as a new player and you’ll be able to double your first deposit up to £200 – minimum £10 – thanks to a 100% welcome offer. In order to withdraw these bonuses, an amount totalling no less than 50 times the bonus amount must be wagered. Other bonuses are available including spins and reloads. Keep an eye on the promo section as well as your email after registration.
The selection of slots on offer at Glimmer is good and you’ll find games from providers such as Net Entertainment, Microgaming and Elk Studios. Many of the slots can be trialed without login via demo play. We anticipate that this option will be nullified in the coming months. The games are split into categories including new and jackpots but there’s no A to Z or popular list. Amongst the many titles you will find Irish Eyes, Beehive Bedlam Reactors, Rainbow Riches, Twin Spin, Samuarai Split, Wolf Cub, Planet Of The Apes, Renegades and Dragon Wins.
The slots are joined by casino games including live blackjack and live roulette. The selection of table games is limited but there are a couple of video poker options such as Double Bonus and Louisiana Double. We are quite surprised that there aren’t more casino games nor are there any scratchcards or instants.
Promotions are good at Glimmer. For example there’s a Happy Hour every Sunday where depositors can claim bonus spins; selected players can pick up a special offer with Wednesday Wildfire – but they need to keep an eye on their emails for that one; and there’s a weekly surprise! The info on the site says that Glimmer “like to surprise players by giving away thousands of pounds in bonuses!” – this occurs every Tuesday. Note that all bonuses and spins come with wagering terms.
Become A VIP
All players are part of the site’s VIP Room loyalty programme. There are five levels, bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond. Each level affords the player bigger and better rewards. Don’t get too excited at bronze level (the basic) as the highlights include customer support and a newsletter! The main benefit for reaching gold is VIP support. That aside the only ‘real’ benefit is that the amount of loyalty points you can convert to cash increases at each level. The previous three months accumulated points total determines your VIP Level each month.
Overall, the VIP programme doesn’t excite us and the withdrawal terms for jackpot winners (£30K max per month) are an issue. However, that’s the ProgressPlay policy and not a fault of the brand. On the plus side there are some good games and plenty of promos. We would like to see exclusives, but then we would like that for every site we review.
