After starting life as a bingo site, bgo Casino is now an established name on the online casino map. TV viewers in the UK will likely have seen adverts for the site starring Verne ‘Mini Me’ Troyer and Vegas playboy and social media phenomenon Dan Bilzerian.
Aimed primarily at British players and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, bgo Casino is home to a wide selection of video slots. You’ll find hundreds of titles from top developers including the Fairytale Legends series from NetEnt, the Age of the Gods franchise from Playtech and many, many more.
There’s no shortage of branded content either so expect to find plenty of TV, movie and music tie-ins. Jackpots hunters are well catered for too with a fine range of progressive titles available. You’ll find all the biggies including the likes of Jackpot Giant, Mega Fortune, Cleopatra, Wolf Run and Siberian Storm.
bgo Casino is a no-download casino so you can play games instantly on your PC or Mac. There are also iOS and Android apps for mobile and tablet players. All new players are welcomed with 10 no deposit free spins as well as a 100% first deposit bonus up to £200. Let’s take a closer look.
bgo Casino has splashed the cash on its advertising campaigns so it’s no surprise to find that their website is a pretty flashy affair. The design is impressive with a selection of specially selected games on view on the home page.
If you can’t immediately find what you’re looking for then the Help tab on the right-hand of the screen should be your first port of call. There’s an FAQ section which covers most the basic queries concerning deposits, withdrawals, bonuses and the like. Unfortunately, there isn’t a search facility.
If you need to get in touch with the support team, you can use the live chat which is manned from 8.30am until midnight 7 days a week. You can also send a message via the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no telephone service offered which is a bit unusual in this day and age.
Most of the major methods are available when it comes to making a deposit at bgo Casino – they include Visa, Mastercard, Maestro as well as the money wallets Skrill, NETeller. Mobile users can also deposit using Boku. If you’re based in the UK, you can also use PayPal or Paysafecard. The minimum deposit amount in all cases is £10.
To make a withdrawal, simply click on the Wallet tab. Withdrawals are processed every day. Once made, a withdrawal will stay in a ‘pending’ state for 24 hours, allowing you to change your mind. Once it’s been processed, it takes up to 3-5 working days for the money to show up in your account. Work your way through bgo’s loyalty levels and the amount of time in the ‘pending’ tray reduces. There’s a £2.50 charge levied on withdrawals.
You may be required to verify your identity. This is done by sending photo ID such as passport or driving licence as well as proof of address like a utility bill. This is standard practice for UK licensed online casinos by the way!
There’s a bumper selection of video slots on offer at bgo Casino – you’ll find titles from a whole range of developers including Bally Technologies, iSoftBet, Barcrest, NextGen Gaming, Eyecon, IGT, Net Entertainment, Ash Gaming, Playtech, Quickspin and WMS (amongst others). There’s also a search facility – we always like to see a search by developer option but unfortunately that’s not on offer here.
The range covers pretty much every genre and theme you could imagine. If you like superheroes, then there’s Playtech’s Batman series. If myth and legend is more to your liking, you’ll find the explosive Age of the Gods titles including Age of the Gods (the best of the lot) – you also have Age of the Gods Ruler of the Sky. I strongly suggest you try the DC Comics range with Man of Steel, Superman The Movie and Green Lantern on offer – 2 really good games are Justice League and the action-packed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
When it comes to Playtech, this is where bgo Casino excels – you have many branded titles such as RoboCop, The Flintstones, The Mask of Zorro, Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Top Gun, Space Invaders and the DC Comics range (Green Lantern, Superman The Movie, Superman II and Man of Steel).
I recommend you try some of the other superb Playtech games like Raiders of the Hidden Realm, Buffalo Blitz, Sultan’s Gold, Vampire Princess of Darkness, Desert Treasure II, Roaring Wilds and Legend of the Jaguar.
The collection of NetEnt titles impresses too – you’ll find old favourites such as the sci-fi classic Starburst and the Mexica fiesta that is Spiñata Grande as well as all the fairy tale inspired Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel and Copy Cats.
Other video slots I recommend include Ash Gaming’s Full Moon Fortunes, IGT’s The Monkey Prince, NextGen Gaming’s 300 Shields, WMS’ Giants Gold, Quickspin’s King Colossus and Barcrest’s Hercules High & Mighty.
Action junkies chasing potentially giant rewards are well catered for too thanks to the decent range of progressive jackpot titles. They include the likes of MegaJackpots Cleopatra and MegaJackpots Isle O’ Plenty from IGT, Jackpot Giant from Playtech and 88 Fortunes from Bally. bgo Casino has pretty much all bases covered when it comes to the range of video slots it offers.
bgo Casino will give you 10 free spins as soon as you sign up with them – no deposit required. They are valid on 4 video slots (Slots O’ Gold, Fishin’ Frenzy, Eye of Horus and/or Diamond Jackpots). These are actually free spins – basically, there are no wagering requirements or max winnings involved meaning what you win is yours to keep.
Upon your first deposit, of £10 or more, you will get a 100% match bonus up to £200 – deposit £200 for example to get a £200 bonus. The welcome bonus comes with 40x bonus wagering requirements which must be completed on a selection of 30 video slots – mostly from Playtech. You cannot use NETeller or Skrill to avail this offer – stick to your debit or credit card!
Ongoing, look out for regular promotions and giveaways. bgo Casino is also home to a loyalty programme where you can cash in your stars and exchange them for bonuses, free spins and other goodies.
