Scores online casino review: Solid, but needs some individuality

Scores Online Casino Review

Scores Online Casino

Familiar because it's just like Pala Casino, Scores' online casino could use a unique touch.

About Scores

Scores opened its first club in Atlantic City in 2018 and launched its online casino a few months later. It uses the same proprietary software as Pala Casino, and that site operates the Scores online casino.

The experience

When you go to ScoresCasino.com, you’ll need to log in to the New Jersey site, not the international casino, which has many more games. Once you’re logged in, next to the Scores Casino logo is a message, “powered by Pala Casino.” Scores’ online casino is an exact copy of the Pala Casino site with the Scores logo on top. All the games and promotions are the same. The gameplay is of high quality but the casino lacks unique promotions that help it stand out from its partner.

Promotions and rewards

Scores offers a two-part welcome package for new players. The first is $25 in bonus money: $20 in casino bonus dollars and a guaranteed $5 win on their $1,000,000 slot machine. There is a 20X minimum wagering requirement on both bonuses before you can withdraw your winnings — unless you win the $1,000,000 grand prize.

The second part is a first deposit match of 100 percent up to $500 and no promo code is required.

First depositor monthly drawing — If your first deposit is $25 or more, you’ll be entered to win 50 bonus spins on the million-dollar slot machine. Five winners are selected randomly. Any money won from the spins is subject to a 20X minimum wagering requirement before you can withdraw winnings.

Daily plays – Every day of the week, Scores offers a different promotion:

    • Monday Spins Reload — Deposit $25 or more and get 25 free spins.
    • Tuesday10 — Deposit $15 or more and get 10 free spins,
    • Spins Wednesday — Deposit $25 or more and get 25 free spins.
    • Double Thursday — Deposit $25 or more and get 10 free spins and $5 in bonus money.
    • Friday50 — Get a 50 percent match up to $50.
    • Slots Saturday — Earn 10X rewards points on featured slots
    • There isn’t currently a Sunday promotion, but the site notes one will be announced soon.

Daily spin for $1,000,000 — After the initial bonus spin players receive at registration, players receive a free spin each day they log on to the site and a chance to win $1 to $1 million on their exclusive slot machine. To be eligible, players must have deposited at least $50 to their account in the last 30 days and have a balance of at least $10.

Rewards program — Players earn both status and reward points for every real-money wager you make on the site. Status points increase your loyalty level and reward points can be redeemed in the points store for cash.

Types of games

Scores does not offer live dealer games and has only a small selection of table games.

Scores summary

Scores does not create a gaming experience unique to their brand. They seem to have distanced their online casino from their adult club, but their site is a copy of partner site Pala Casino. Unless you’re a player loyal to the Scores brand, there isn’t anything to make this online casino experience a standout.
