Red Stag Casino
Launched in 2015, Red Stag is among the few American WGS casinos still open for business. For those new to WGS, they used to be a popular casino software provider up until the mid-2010s, especially for playing tournaments online. The platform kept evolving over time, incl. in a web-based mobile form, but still delivers a very old-school experience that can be a deal-breaker for many. No flashy graphics or live dealer games. Red Stag is all about pay tables, tournaments and realistic progressive jackpots. And with its promotion lineup, there are plenty of opportunities for practicing all day long.

Games & Software
The WGS game library stil hasn’t made the full switch to HTML5 and you can expect a lot of Flash content and outdated-looking graphics from Red Stag Casino. A good 20 from about 120 slots are single-line, three-reel games like Red, White and Win, which features a progressive jackpot for landing American flag symbols. The rest of the slots are mainly with 20 to 40 adjustable paylines. Some of the more recent titles include Californa Gold, featuring somewhat more complex mechanics like a pick’em game that can be triggered in the bonus round. The majority of remaining games are good old classics with simple double-point bonus rounds like 20,000 Leagues or the WGS classic Cool Bananas.
Like any old-school casino, Red Stag has a good selection of video poker and table game titles. Most of the poker games are versions of Jacks or Better with slightly different pay tables offering single to four hand games. Poker RTP rates are also great. Classic Jacks or Better has an average RTP of 99.54% with Aces & Faces coming second at 99.26%. Red Stag further offers classic 3 to 2 blackjack, incl. to Vegas and Atlantic City rules, and of course, European Roulette along with classic keno. Playing WGS games against the computer, however, is really only a warm-up for the tournaments. Every week, Red Stag holds a number of slot tournaments with buy-ins starting at $5 and prize pools in the range of $5,000 to $15,000. There are also plenty of freerolls for blackjack, keno and video poker players with prizes varying from $100 up to $1,500.
Top 3 slots
Cool Bananas – a popular WGS five-reel slot with 25 adjustable paylines and bet size of up to $10 per line. The monkey is wild and also the highest paying symbol in the game, giving 5,000 coins for five of a kind. The free spins are triggered by three or more banana scatters, each giving eight free spins, and the free play can be retriggered. All winnings during the bonus round are doubled.
20,000 Leagues – another popular five-reel game with 25 paylines and a maximum bet size of $250. The slot features two wilds – the submarine and the 20,000 League symbols. The first appears on reels one, two, four and five, whereas the second one appears on reel three only. The logo symbol substitutes for all symbols, incl. for the submarine, and on a winning line with at least one submarine, it triggers free spins.
Cleopatra’s Labyrinth – an Egyptian five-reel slot with 20 paylines and an adjustable bet size of $0.10 to $10. The Cleopatra symbol is wild and can appear stacked on reels two, three and four. The pyramid symbol is scatter and can either trigger free spins or the pyramid bonus round. The free spins can be retriggered and all winnings are multiplied by the number of Cleopatra symbols on the winning line.
