The online casino world is no stranger to music themed casinos. And let's face it, you've probably entered a Hard Rock Cafe at some point in your life. You might even have the T-shirt to prove it. You might've stayed at a Hard Rock Hotel, and played at a Hard Rock land casino. They're everywhere. Specifically, they're in 59 countries with over 168 cafes, 23 hotels and 11 casinos.
And now, as a natural progression, Hard Rock is coming to an online casino near you. Get it? Because if it's online than it's obviously near you? Anyway, over 40 decades after the first cafe was established (in 1971, London), it seems obvious that Hard Rock Casino would take to the internet. Casinos.co first heard of the casino going live on 6th February 2018. The casino is being designed by IGC – meaning you can bank on great games, great banking and great customer support. And we couldn't be more excited by the prospect. Bring on the rock-themed slots, bonuses and promotions!

Hard Rock Casino Welcome Offer
We don’t know much about the Hard Rock Casino welcome offer so far. And by ‘we don’t know much’, we mean ‘we don’t know anything’. But, we can say that most new online casinos are out to impress their new players. They want to hit the ground running, make a huge splash so that they get the attention they want. Which is why the Hard Rock Casino welcome bonus is probably going to be a substantial match-up bonus. It could potentially be split over several deposits, so players can make the most out of the first days of their account.
Besides being a new casino, the Hard Rock company is rich. It’s not a start-up casino, trying to make some dough straight-off the bat. It’s a solid industry in its own right – so it can afford those huge welcome bonuses that few online casinos have right now. If you’ve been to the Hard Rock Casino in Vancouver, BC, then you’ll know the level of luxury we’re talking about right now.
Talking about luxury, another thing we’re positive Hard Rock Casino online will have is a VIP Club. The land casinos already have their own systems, and it’s practically 100% certain that the online casino will have a fun system to reward loyal players as well. We’re even guessing that upper-tier VIPs will get trips to Hard Rock hotels around the world, and maybe even front-row seats and back-stage passes to some legendary concerts.
It’s even possible that trips to hotels and concerts won’t be limited to the VIP Club. Month-long promotions and weekly deals might even have these level of prizes for its players. Like we said, the Hard Rock corporation is hardly strapped for cash.
Since Hard Rock Casino will be another IGC product, we have a pretty good idea of what sort of games to expect.
We’re thinking Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n GO, Red Tiger, Yggdrasil and even Quickspin. If so, these providers will guarantee that Hard Rock has a collection of over 500 games. And those 500 games will all be of a high-quality. Although we don’t know for sure whether Hard Rock online will have live casino, if it does it’ll probably use the services of a pro company like Evolution Gaming.
Since Hard Rock is the name, we’re hoping that music-themed slots are also the game. NetEnt has plenty of them (Guns ‘n Roses, Jimi Hendrix, etc.), but so do a lot of other providers. Microgaming has an Osbournes themed slot, Leander Games has slots on Megadeth and Dolly Parton. WMS has slots for Michael Jackson and Kiss too. Plenty of entertainment for music enthusiasts.
A big casino like Hard Rock will undoubtedly have some amazing table games. Whether you’re a fan of baccarat, or blackjack, or roulette, or craps, or poker – we’re guessing you’ll be happy with what you find at Hard Rock Casino online. You might even find less popular table games, like sic bo. The same goes for video poker lovers. It’s hard to imagine that any significant online casino wouldn’t have an extensive video poker selection for its players.
Aside from having all the latest big slots, Hard Rock online casino will likely have progressive jackpot slots as well. Titles like Mega Moolah and King Cashalot from Microgaming, and then Divine Fortune and Hall of Gods from NetEnt will all probably be found in the lobby area.
Once again, since Hard Rock Casino online will likely be one of the biggest casinos to launch in the upcoming months, it’ll have a great banking range for its players. For sure, it’ll have both credit card services and e-Wallets. Here’s our estimation of what you’ll be able to use at Hard Rock Casino online:
Since Hard Rock has a number of branches in Canada as well, we’re hoping it caters to Canadian players and provides iDebit and Instadebit payments. These would be excellent for both depositing and withdrawing purposes with the casino. Other factors like transaction fees and withdrawal limits remain to be seen once the casino is launched. But we think Hard Rock Casino will prepare itself for highroller players, and therefore set some high deposit and withdrawal limits.
A company like Hard Rock, known for its welcoming environment and professional attitude, is definitely going to have a customer support team to live up to its name. Any person employed for the job will likely have Although it’s a new casino, we’re sure it’ll have 24/7 client support for players all around the world.
In addition, it’ll probably have live chat, email and telephone channels of communication. We’re hoping that they’ll also having a Canadian line, so that CA players can get in touch with the support team easily. And more cost effectively.
This is one online casino which we can’t wait to explore. It doesn’t need much hype, because its name alone stirs up excitement in the online gaming community. Stay tuned to Casinos.co for more information and updates on the Hard Rock online casino.
Will it rock us? That’s one thing we don’t have to guess at. The answer is a resounding: yes.
