Cleos VIP Room has to be one of the most unique online gaming sites available on the web today, calling itself a “promotional website” as opposed to an online casino.
In actual fact, Cleos VIP Room is a subsidiary of the well-known discount retailer virtualspree.com. This company have managed to successfully dodge a host of regulations all over the United States by only allowing items to be purchased using their own virtual currency. Visitors to their sites must purchase these “VS points” with real cash, and can then go on to use these points to actually order goods and services. Cleos VIP Room simply extends this existing model by allowing potential players to purchase casino chips using their VS points, and these casino chips can later be redeemed for cash prizes in the same way as the prize tickets you might remember collecting at funfairs or amusement arcades.
There’s no doubting the fact that if this arrangement truly is somehow legally permissible, it’s certainly playing fast and loose with the rules. There are a number of additional caveats to be aware of before choosing to play here too, such as the fact that all deposits must be spent a minimum of thirty times before any winnings become eligible for conversion back to real money prizes. Some games such as Roulette, Blackjack and Video Poker have an increased rollover requirement of three-hundred times, so essentially your deposited funds are subject to just the same restrictions that bonus money might be at a regular online casino.
The casino games are provided by the relatively new developer Amuzi Gaming, so most players will not be familiar with the titles on offer here – the only other casino currently offering this software is Casinoval, and sadly they do not permit players from within the United States. It’s obvious just from looking at the Cleos website though that the production values and presentation of these games is definitely first-rate. The slot machines in particular must surely be some of the best available to U.S. players and boast fantastic graphics, smooth animation, and high quality music and sound effects. The range of table games and video pokers is a little on the small side, but I was impressed to see a full 3:2 payout on a Blackjack as well as a 6/9 Jacks or Better video poker machine.`
Cleos claim to hold a gaming license from the jurisdiction of Cyprus, although I’ve not heard of such a license until now and I wouldn’t expect this claim will go far to convince American gamblers of the legitimacy of this site. The site uses an independent testing agency called BMM to verify the fairness of their games and the random number generator which drives them, and as this agency is used by a number of other respected online gaming institutions this does at least give some peace of mind.
The site has a number of support channels including e-mail, live chat and a toll free telephone number. I tried a test query using each of these methods and on each occasion my questions were answered quickly and professionally, by staff who appeared knowledgable about the casino and its games. As ever with U.S. facing online casinos, Cleos VIP Room is perhaps let down by the long withdrawal pending period of 5-12 days, but research suggests that on the whole this casino do try their best to pay their players as quickly as US banking procedures will allow.
