Have you ever typed bored.com into your browser, in search of something to amuse you? Embarrassingly, I used to when I was 12 and YouTube wasn’t as amazing as it is now. Casino.com uses this old trick and attracts players from all over the world. Fun fact: It had cost the owners $5.5 million to own that domain name, a fraction of what sex.com sold for ($14mil).
Let’s evaluate Casino.com. A quick look suggests that it is a global hub for online gambling, with 13 currencies and 40+ languages. Have they exploited this valuable domain name to its full potential? Are many players frequenting this site?

The mobile version of Casino.com uses Playtech software, which is used by many other reputable casinos. As such, you’ll find familiar Playtech games and enjoy its smooth performance on all devices. There are 29 mobile games, including:
- 5 Marvel Jackpot Slots – Spiderman, Iron Man 3, The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four
- 1 Progressive Jackpot – Gold Rally ($698,000 at the time of writing)
- 16 other slots with different themes and reels
- Video Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Scratch Cards
The online version for PCs is available for Download and Instant Play, with 200+ games of every variety you can think of. In fact, there’s also an interesting section called “Asian Games” that includes Japanese Rules, Mahjong and Baccarat.

First off, you’ll receive a 200% deposit match of up to £400 bonus. That's jolly good when you come to visit a new casino and need a cash boost to explore the extensive number of mobile slots that they feature! Then, there are exclusive bonuses for its mobile players, recognising that there are more than 100 million mobile players and they have different depositing behaviours.
- 200% First Deposit Match Bonus up to £400
- Daily Top-Up for Mobile – 50% Deposit Match up to $200 (Enter code “TOPUP” in the mobile cashier)
Players on the online version of Casino.com get 100% First Deposit Match up to £400.
There are loads of promotions to keep up with and most are quite attractive ones too. I’d advise you to follow them on Facebook or Twitter to stay updated with their plentiful promotions. Some of the promotions on their rota:
- Reload Bonuses every Tuesday – 25% Deposit Match
- Refer a Friend Bonus – $50 per Friend, redeem up to £1000
- Make your Match – 100% Match on First Deposit each month (Enter code “FIRST1”)
- Month End Reload – 25% Match (Enter code “ENDREL”)
- Beginners Booster – Monthly Prize Draw for new players
- Loyalty Points Programme
- Prize draws and giveaways, with cruise holidays and gadgets up for grabs
I noticed that mobile players also get better deals during their promotions. For example, the Bounce Bank promotion in September 2014 offers 2% more cashback rates to mobile players.
Casino.com accepts deposits via credit/ debit cards, Ecopay, Solo, Ukash, Neteller, Skrill, Instadebit, Click2Pay and Citadel Internet Banking. The large variety caters to players from different countries and currencies. However, the lack of mobile phone deposits is a stark reminder of the charm of local casinos.

Casino.com provides withdrawals via Neteller, Skrill, Click2Pay, Webmoney, wire transfer and bank draft. E-wallets take 1-2 business days to clear whereas bank draft takes up to 21 days. Larger withdrawals also take longer to be processed.
A slight drawback is their player verification process before we’re allowed to make a cash deposit. This involves sending them a copy of your photo ID, credit cards and proof of address. It is during times like these that you crave the anonymity and instant withdrawals of Bitcoin casinos.

Casino.com – The World’s Casino
Casino.com is available in a large number of languages and currencies, some of which I don’t even recognise. However, there aren’t any exotic offerings to explore or social features to interact with international players. Besides, players from the UK would have seen many of the titles at Casino.com, since Playtech is common in UK mobile casinos. If you’re looking for something new, do check out StarGames for some European flavour or the newly-minted Chomp Casino for fresh Nektan slots.
To be honest, there are better casinos than Casino.com. I was disappointed to find only 29 games and a slightly-dated aesthetic, when I expected the best casino in the world with the best domain name. It’s an average casino with a little bit of everything and nice promotions, but it doesn’t really sparkle. Well, at least it’s more fun than my old haunt, bored.com or mindless Buzzfeed posts.
