Overview and Currency System
Carnival Citi Casino is owned by Citi Media Tech LLC, a US based company, located in Miami, Florida.
As many other social casinos of this type, Carnival Citi offers players two kinds of coins to play with: Gold Coins (or just Coins) and Sweeps Coins, or as they are called in this case here – Sweeps Chips (SC).
Players can receive Coins free of charge or buy them in order to play Carnival’s varied selection of games. It’s important to keep in mind that they may not be exchanged for real money since they are only intended to be used for extending your playtime.
Sweeps Chips, on the other hand, are not purchasable. There are however various ways for users to acquire them along with some complimentary Gold Coins which will be covered below.

Payment Methods Carnival Citi Casino
Finally, you can earn free Sweeps Chips by purchasing certain Gold Coin bundles. Make sure you have your notifications on and you have selected the option to be notified by email about such promotions. The payment methods available are: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Trustly, Paypal and Venmo.
A welcome feature of Carnival Citi is that players can redeem certain prizes. The minimum amount that you can redeem is 100,000 SC, which is equal to $100 when you exchange them for real money. The available options for redeeming your sweeps coins is either through bank transfer or Paypal.
Carnival Citi introduces to players live LUCKY DRAWS with E.TICKETS. Each time the player plays up to 10,000 Sweeps Coins, they will be awarded with 3 E.TICKETS, each holding a special number.
A LUCKY DRAW is a collection of E.TICKETS awarded to players. At a set time and date the online social casino will select winning E.TICKETs and award prizes accordingly in an online raffle. Each of the player’s E.TICKETS will participate in three different LUCKY DRAWS: DAILY LUCKY, WEEKLY AND MONTHLY LUCKY DRAW.
Naturally, this means that the more you play the more E.TICKETS you will gather and you will have better chances of winning more LUCKY DRAW prizes.
- DAILY LUCKY DRAW – every midnight EST, the sweepstakes casino randomly picks E.TICKET winners from all ‘DAILY LUCKY DRAW’ E.TICKETS accumulated by all participating players. The Prize pool shared between winners is 10,000 Sweeps Chips.
- WEEKLY LUCKY DRAW – this is a weekly Lucky Draw which pays 25,000 SC in prizes. It occurs every Sunday at midnight EST.
- MONTHLY LUCKY DRAW – a monthly Lucky Draw which pays 100,000 Sweeps Chips in prizes and takes place on the last day of every month at midnight EST.
Additionally, Carnival Citi Casino organizes SPECIAL EVENT LUCKY DRAW Promotional Packages, which are special event Lucky Draws created usually for special days. In these Special events the prizes are bigger than the other Lucky Draw events.
Legitimacy and Social Responsibility
Responsible Social Gaming Page
Before taking a look at the games on offer at Carnival Citi, it is important to mention that Citi Media Tech LLC have dedicated a section on the website related to Responsible Social Gaming. This, along with all the relative information for players is available at the bottom of the page.
There you will find helpful information and tips about dealing with gambling/gaming addiction, how to assist others with such problems and how to control your play time in case you notice it becoming an issue.
A common and understandable concern, especially among new players, is whether this type of casino is legal in the US.
It may not be exactly the fun players are looking for in any social casino, but taking a look at Carnival’s terms and conditions page will provide all the necessary information about legality as well as which states it is not available to play and use promotions (Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah and Washington).
In case you don’t have time to read T&C, a much easier option is to simply attempt a registration on their website and if your region is not legible. Once you fill in your address and phone number and attempt to receive a confirmation code, you will be notified that your region is not available and won’t be able to continue any further.
Additional layer of security is that before redeeming your prizes, you will be required to pass a Know Your Customer (KYC) verification, which is a standard procedure for identity identification and fraud prevention.
Now that the legal (but crucial) stuff is out of the way, let’s explore what games Carnival Citi offers to its players. Let’s start with the category, which is undoubtedly the most preferred one among players.
Carnival Citi Slot Games
The focal point of the sweeps cash casino is its slot games, with a library of more than 100 titles, including popular ones such as Gallo Pancho, Fifi Friuts, Martial Eagle and more.
Fans of table titles might be a bit underwhelmed as we could only find two table titles in the sweeps casino:
- 3-Hand American Black Jack
- 5-Hand American Black Jack.
A welcome addition to the sweepstakes casino is the inclusion of jackpots. At the time of writing, we could count eight of them, which is an impressive amount. If you are a fan of playing for the thrill to potentially win substantial wins, this is your place.
Keno Games Carnival Citi Casino
Keno is quite popular among US players and we are happy to see it presented on Carnival’s page. So far you can pick from three Keno games: Steam Train Keno, The Great Wall Keno and Cleo’s Keno.
Carnival Citi, one of the newest participants in the US online casino style gaming sphere, is a worthy rival to the big names. Some players might find it disappointing that the site is not accessible from 11 states, which is a bit too much for a free-to-play sweepstakes casino.
Nevertheless, if you reside in some of the available states, you can enjoy a plethora of slots, table games, and many more. As a new player, you can also have a kickstart with the free Sweeps Chips upon signup.
