Wild Casino itself is owned by the Bovada group. They have a licence from Curaçao, but you’ll need to dig deep on their website to find it. Some vital information is also difficult to dig up, like banking options and bonus terms.
It does have some nice details though. For example, clicking on any game category brings up a short explanation about that sort of game. That, however, isn’t enough to make up for the scattered and hidden information.
Even though the casino shows some promise in other sections, we recommend you tread carefully.
Games and Providers
Wild Casino offers a solid variety of casino games and game providers. As is standard in the online casino industry, most are slot games. Progressive jackpots are also there for players dreaming of huge money. Unlike many online casinos that cater to the Australian audience, they didn’t rename games that contain slot in their name to pokie (which is what slot machines are called down under).
As we mentioned, Wild Casino is a multiplatform casino, hosting games from names such as iSoftBet, RTG, and Rival Gaming. The casino also has an in-house development team, working on creating exclusive titles. Playing these titles might sound fun, but the RTP is unknown, and the software is not tested. That means investing a large sum of real money can be quite a risky undertaking.
Another notable thing about Wild Casino’s lobby is the poor search function. Sure, players might already know what they want to play, but sometimes, people just want to type in poker games and see a comprehensive list. Since the casino doesn’t do that, we’ll step in and mention some of their most prominent games.
- Slots — 5 Reel Circus, Fixer Upper, Cleopatra’s Gold, As The Reels Turn
- Table Games — Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Craps
- Specialty Games — Sudoku, Keno, Bingo, Pai Gow
- Video Poker — Deuces Wild, Jacks Or Better, Joker Poker
The casino, additionally, has live-dealer games, which many gamblers have grown to love. They have options for roulette, baccarat, and blackjack. The selection is visibly limited, but it’s still nice that they host live games at all.
All the games are available download-free and have a practice function. They also work on mobile though the compatibility was hard to assess.
While the game selection and T&C were solid, the casino definitely lacks in financial options. Firstly, to deposit, you can only use a credit card, Bitcoin, or bitcoin cash. The information on the credit card in question is extremely difficult to locate on the website, but if we understood correctly, they mean Visa.
For withdrawals, only two options are added— bank wire transfers and cheques — though both are subject to a $50 fee. The option to use a credit card, however, is no longer available. There’s a pending period on withdrawal that’s fairly long, about 72 hours. What’s worrying is that that’s not the max period. Moreover, the max period isn’t written anywhere, so the casino could potentially hold your money hostage for as long as they wish.
Deposit and withdrawal amounts aren’t stellar either. Via credit card, the min is $20, and the max is $1,000 for deposits. Bitcoin and bitcoin cash move that to $10/$5,000. Withdrawals using bank transfers or cheques are available once per week, and the limits are $1,500/$9,500 for the former, and $20/$3,000 for the latter. Bitcoins are a bit better in that regard, with withdrawal available every three days, and the limits being $10/$10,000.
It’ll take 5–10 business days for you to receive your money by wire transfer and 4–7 by check. And as if everything until now wasn’t bad enough, they only accept two currencies, USD and AUD, three if you count BTC.
For those dabbling around in cryptocurrency, this might be a good casino, but for others, the limited options severely cripple the experience.
Bonuses, bar the fact that the casino can remove them at any time if they deem you a pro, are surprisingly good at Wild Casino Most of their offers are basic deposit bonuses though the requirements to withdraw them are pretty lenient. One that applies to all bonus wagering requirements is how much games contribute.
Namely, the games most tilted towards the casino’s favour, slots and specialty games, contribute fully. Next, table games, with a few exclusions, contribute 20%. Video poker and blackjack, the first exclusion, contribute 10%. Finally, single & double deck blackjack, roulette, sic bo, and baccarat contribute 5%.
If a game doesn’t fall under any of these categories, it has a 0% contribution.
Wild Casino offers a generous welcome bonus as soon as players sign up. That has become common practice for online casinos, but Wild Casino’s offer is still quite generous.
The first promotion to greet players isn’t flashy but is effective. They offer a 100% deposit match with no limit, along with 20 free spins. The wagering requirement is moderately low, being at 30x. The catch, however, is that you can deposit a maximum of $1,000 with credit cards, so only those using bitcoin can have a truly insane bonus.
An offer that follows the welcome promotion, the Reload bonus is pretty much the same thing. Players using bitcoin can get as much as a $20,000 headstart by utilizing both of these bonuses. They do, however, expire after a month, and you can only have one bonus active at any given time.
Everyday Deposit Bonus
The casino isn’t too creative with the promotions it provides, but some value efficiency over creativity. With the everyday deposit bonus, you’ll get a 100% deposit match up to $50 on the first two payments you deposit each day. The regular 30x playthrough applies to this bonus as well.
The casino doesn’t shy from using its promotions as a marketing tool. Each player for referring their buddies gets a $50 bonus, provided both of them deposit at least $20. The casinos standard 30x playthrough applies, and the winnings are limited to 10x the bonus.
There’s also a somewhat hidden bonus, which appears only when you go into your account and select my rewards. It’s a deposit match of up to $500 with a 30x rollover. We’re not sure how it works or whether it’s available after the initial two bonuses, but if it is, it could prove useful.
There are a couple more bonuses, but they are only available to loyal members. So before going over those, let’s go over the loyalty program, how it works, and what the benefits are.
Like many other casinos, loyalty or VIP ranks at Wild Casino AG come in tiers. Here, they are called silver, gold, platinum, and black. Your rank is calculated based on how much you bet, and different games have different point contributions. Table games are worth the least, with 1 point per dollar, and specialty games bring in the most value, at 15 points per buck bet.
The points aren’t only for show as they can also be exchanged for cash at the casino. The exchange rates vary from rank to rank, with non-VIP members getting a dollar per 2,500 points, and those who achieve the blank rank getting $1 per 1,000. You can only get points by playing with real cash, so bonus money or dollars you purchased with points won’t get you more points. The currency you get this way, additionally, has a rollover of 10x.
It’s worth noting that VIP ranks are calculated yearly, and your reputation points reset at the same time. You’ll still be able to exchange them for money, but they won’t count towards your rank.
Reaching the silver rank unlocks the daily cashback option at the casino. If you have $10 on your account at 2 a.m. EST, the casino will look at the last time you received a cashback bonus and calculate how much you’ll get back. The equation is: deposits — withdrawals — ending balance.
If the number reached is positive, they’ll return a percentage back, based on your rank. Silver members get 5% back, and black-ranked members get a whopping 15%. There’s an unnoticeable rollover of 1x attached to the offer, but we’re sure most players won’t mind.
Weekly Deposit Bonus
Available to gold+ members, this bonus allows players to get an additional deposit match each week. It can be up to $150, and the standard wagering requirement of 30x applies. The bonus is not exactly what we’d call VIP-worthy, but it is a nice enough boost for players already investing money.
The customer support for Wild Casino is less than stellar. The customer service is limited to their email address, and since most gamblers want a quick conversation, the lack of a phone line or live chat is very noticeable.
If we simply looked at how good the games and bonuses are, Wild Casino would, without any doubt, get our recommendation. Instead, it stands as a testimony to how important reputation can be for a casino.
While the bonuses could make your mouth water, there’s no guarantee that you’d be paid out. Furthermore, getting your money back, even if the casino does comply, will be a chore for anyone not playing with BTC.
We can recommend this casino to anyone who wants to play with serious money.
