Launched in 2007, Casino.com is one of the world’s most recognisable online gambling brands for two reasons. The first is its domain – casino.com – which is well-known globally and the envy of rival casinos, and the second is that it is long-established as a safe, trustworthy and worthwhile online and mobile casino with a solid reputation. Powered by Playtech, a pioneering online casino game developer and one of a handful that still produces downloadable games, Casino.com has hundreds of entertaining real money and fun play (practice) games for players to choose from. Plus, as new games are added intermittently, its already vast game portfolio just keeps growing year on year.
Casino.com is owned and operated by ONISAC Ltd and is licensed in the online gambling-friendly jurisdiction of Gibraltar, where ONISAC Ltd is also headquartered. Its UK operations are governed by a remote operating license issued by the UK Gambling Commission. Being licensed, Casino.com’s players are assured that its pay-out-percentages, game odds and pay-outs are fair and above board. The casino is also closely monitored by independent third party organisations the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS) and the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (GBGA).
About the Owners
ONISAC Ltd also owns and operates Slots Heaven Casino, another respected and highly frequented online and mobile casino. ONISAC Ltd’s headquarters are at Suite 732 Europort, Gibraltar. The firm’s UK Gambling Commission license number is 000-039448-R-319446, under which Casino.com can operate in that territory.
Casino.com Accolades and Associations
Casino.com is a conscientious casino in terms of ensuring that players, and all of their personal and financial information, are safe and protected around the clock, 365 days a year.
This is achieved by complying with European and International Anti Money Laundering laws and regulations, as well as constant screening for ‘politically exposed persons’ and suspicious activity including but not limited to money laundering.
In the event a player is flagged by Casino.com in this regard, they will be reported to the relevant financial crime authority. The casino also supports a host of problem gambling prevention initiatives including Gambling Therapy, Gamcare, GambleAware and Gamblers Anonymous.
Casino.com Bonus Options
The one thing that every premier online and mobile casino in operation has in common without fail, is that it offers newly signed up players one or more generous bonus offers, and Casino.com is no exception. To welcome first time players to the fold, so to speak, it has two generous bonus offers players can take advantage of that are highlighted below:
Free spins bonuses are all the rage right now at premier online casino because they are so effective at attracting new players being 100% free; i.e. requiring no deposit to activate, just a new account registration.
Likewise, at Casino.com by taking a minute to sign up for a new real money account, new players can claim 20 free spins which they can use to play the ever-popular Age of the Gods slot game.
Then, if after using up their 20 free spins players would like to unlock even more free spins, they can secure another 9 sets of 20 free spins (180 in total) by making an initial deposit. They’ll receive their first set of 20 free spins immediately following their first deposit, and thereafter 20 free spins daily for the next consecutive 8 days.
This free spins bonus offer at Casino.com comes with a 20x wagering requirement that must be met before players are permitted to bank any winnings (which is capped at $100) which will be deposited into their account as regular bonus funds.
New players at Casino.com who want to boost their playing funds from the word go will love the casino’s generous welcome bonus offer. Whatever amount players choose to deposit (from a minimum of $20) will be matched by 100% up to a maximum of $400. For example, a deposit of $100 will earn a player a bonus of $100 for a total of $200 in real money playing funds.
Like the free spins bonus above, the welcome bonus at Casino.com also comes with a wagering requirement that must be met, in this case 40x the bonus. Using the above example, this means players must play-through i.e. make $4,000 in bets before they can withdraw any winnings derived therefrom, capped at $100. In addition, game restrictions apply to this bonus which means various games contribute differently to the wagering requirements.
For instance, players can play-through 100% of the required $4,000 on any slot or keno game, but only 25% of the requirement on any Pai Gow, Casino Hold'em or Roulette game, or 20% on any Baccarat, Blackjack, Stravaganza, Craps or Video Poker variant. Blackjack Switch, Pontoon and Lucky Wheel only count for 5%, while Video Poker (and a handful of slots) counts for 0%, and so should be avoided. All other games not specified above count for 100% of the bonus wagering requirement.
Other Casino.com Promotions
In keeping with its generous new player or sign up bonuses, Casino.com also has many worthwhile promotions available to registered real money players. Some are time or holiday-specific like “Black Fri-yay” which coincided with the annual Thanksgiving sales drive ‘Black Friday.’
Current promotions at Casino.com include:
Rumble in the Jungle Free Spins
Players can earn one of two sets of free spins with this promotion depending on the bonus code they use. For instance, they can enter bonus code: LION to play Jungle Giants or bonus code: MONKEY to play Jungle Trouble. A deposit of $20 to $50 earns 10 free spins, $51 to $100 earns 20 free spins, $101 to $250 earns 30 free spins and any amount over that earn 50 free spins on either video slot.
Make your Match Bonus
This is a VIP 100% reload bonus of up to $500 for regular players and $1,000 for VIP players that can be activated using bonus code: FIRST1 when they make their first deposit of the month.
Funky Friday Bonus
All registered players at Casino.com (that don’t live in Denmark or Canada) can claim $5 free every Friday to use on the toe-tapping Guns N’ Roses slots by entering bonus code: SLASH in the ‘My Account’ section of the casino.
Refer a Friend Bonus
Any registered Casino.com player will be credited with $50 in their real money account for every friend they refer that signs up and deposits at Casino.com.
