Casinoland launched late last year, and it’s brought to us by one of the biggest names around. Whilst you might not have heard of MT SecureTrade Limited themselves, you’re likely to have heard of their other site, Guts.
Like it’s sister site, Casinoland delivers players a huge range of choice with over 400 video slots on offer, table games, live casino rooms and progressive jackpots. Plus, they’ve managed to get some of the most popular software developers on side too. This means you can expect slots from, but not limited to, Microgaming, NetEnt, Play n Go, NextGen and Thunderkick.
In addition to so many slots, Casinoland also boasts an impressive 15 progressive jackpot games, such as the huge Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune and The Dark Knight Rises. There’s also multiple variations of Roulette, Blackjack and Poker.
Not content with simply providing us with a huge range of great games, Casinoland have also streamlined the whole game-selection process with their responsive and easy to use design. You can search for slots by provider, add slots to your ‘Favourites’ page, and also access a ‘Last Played’ page too.
Casinoland is offering not one, not two, not three, but four welcome bonuses! We’re used to the regular trio but the fourth really makes Casinoland stand out from the crowd. That being said, they’re not the biggest deals around, but free cash is still free cash right?
It all starts off with a 100% 1st deposit match bonus, up tp £200. This means that anything you deposit first time will be doubled. So, deposit the whole £200, and have £400 to play with.
The second bonus falls to a respectable 50%, up to £200, and the third and fourth offer a 25% bonus (again up to £200). This means then, overall, Casinoland are giving players a huge £800.
To qualify you need to deposit at least £20 each time, and select the appropriate bonus from the banking page. As always, these bonuses are tied wagering requirements, and these are set at 40x. They’re not the largest requirements we’ve ever seen, but they’re not easy to clear either. It’s also useful to note that only video slots contribute 100% to clearing the amount, whereas table games for example, contribute nothing.
Currently, Casinoland are only offering one active promotion. To be honest, this left us disappointed as we’re used to new casinos handing out freebies left, right and centre. Furthermore, it’s not a particularly deal either.
The promotion’s quite straight forward, Casinoland’s ‘Tuesday Spotlight Special’ selects the newest slot they have on offer, which is currently NetEnt’s Drive: Multiple Mayhem, and gives away 50 free spins. To qualify however, you need to deposit at least £50, which is pretty steep. The promotion is tied to 1x wagering requirements and your free spins should be credited instantly.
We’re hoping that Casinoland up their game in this department soon and offer some more regular (and better) promotions. From the kind of deals we’ve seen at sibling site Guts, we’re hoping that as the casino grows they’ll improve, so we’re giving them the benefit of the doubt at the moment.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Casinoland is offering a decent range of banking methods, meaning everyone should find something that’s suited to them. You can fund your account via Mastercard, Visa, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafe Card, Ukash or iDeal.
There’s a minimum deposit of £10 across all methods, and a maximum of £5,000 per transaction. There’s no fees to be incurred via any method, and all deposits should be credited to your account immediately.
To withdraw at Casinoland you have the choice between Visa, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafe Card or bank transfer. The minimum withdrawal is set at £20, and there’s a daily maximum of £5,000. Casinoland promise to make withdrawals as quick as possible which means if you request funds via e-wallet it should be there pretty much instantly. Credit/Debit cards and bank transfer withdrawals, however, could take 3-5 working days.
A Little Way to Go
In some ways, Casinoland has really impressed us. We loved the huge range of games, the beautifully designed interface and the 24/7 customer support. The mobile casino app is responsive and easy to navigate and we love the quirky touches, such as a ‘Favourites’ page.
We’re also really taken with just how transparent Casinoland seem to be. Sometimes, casinos make it very difficult to access terms and conditions (not to mention, make them hard to understand), however, Casinoland do the exact opposite.
All the information you could need is easy to find and clearly expressed, meaning you can make an informed decision about the casino. It’s a smart move as it allows players to trust the casino more, and therefore, they’re also more likely to deposit.
All this being said, we think Casinoland still have a little way to go. There’s certain aspects, like promotions for example, which just aren’t quite hitting the mark. We think in some departments Casinoland need to up their game, however, with a sibling like Guts, we’re sure that things will be improved in time. If they can follow in the footsteps of Guts, then we’re sure they’ll earn their stripes soon and will only get bigger and better.
Other casinos like Casinoland
Ace Kingdom – Also launched last year, Ace Kingdom is a new casino site ran by UK bookmaker heavy-weight, Ladbrokes. There’s a trio of welcome bonuses up for grabs, and over 100 titles from the likes of Playtech and Quickspin. However, what really caught our attention was the personalized interface, which allows you to drag and drop your favourite games to the homepage.
Guts – As we’ve mentioned, Guts is powered by the same people as Casinoland, however, launched in 2009, it already has a great reputation. With over 600 slots on offer, Guts has thousands of dedicated fans and for good reason too! There’s a great games collection, regular promotions and bonuses available, and it’s one of the best places to find new releases.
Casinoland is defintiely worth trying out. We think they’ve made a good start, however they’ve got a bit further to go before we can recommend it as a great place to play.
That being said, with so many good slots, a decent welcome package, 24/7 support and a stunning interface, there’s so many reasons to visit that it almost makes us want to forget it’s problems.
n all honesty, we’d like to see more promotions that’s for sure, and we’d appreciate a few more banking options too, but as a new site, it’s made a great impression and we’re looking forward to seeing how it fares in the future.
