Pocket Vegas is a new site, powered by Nektan, that's left us feeling rather impressed. There's so many positives to this casino that it almost feels like we don't want to ruin the surprise. However we will tell you that it boasts a great selection of games, some lucrative welcome bonuses, regular promotions and it even accepts Boku deposits. Plus, there's a free £5 available for anyone who registers! If this doesn't sound like a winner of a casino, we don't know what does.

Pocket Vegas is powered by Nektan, the same people who've brought us the likes of Sapphire Rooms and Spin Princess, so of course we already had some high expectations. Luckily, Pocket Vegas doesn't disappoint. With 91 games on offer, their roster can sound small on paper, but rest assured it's an artfully curated collection meaning everyone should be able to find something they love to play.
Over the last year, Nektan have expanded their slots offering, so now as well as providing players with their own games, there's a selection of Next Gen and Net Ent titles too. Popular slots include the Nektan classics such as Best of British and Candy Swap, Next Gen favourites such as Foxin' Wins, plus always in-demand Net Ent games such as Hook's Heroes and South Park: Reel Chaos.
There's not a great deal of table games to play, but Pocket Vegas have most bases covered with versions of Roulette and Blackjack. The good news is, however, that the majority of games are available on the mobile app, so there's no fear of missing out if you love to play on the go.
Pocket Vegas have a ton of great bonuses up their sleeves and it all kicks off with a £5 no deposit when you register! We love a good no deposit bonus as it means you can test out the casino before making a commitment. Simply register and validate your account and you'll have a fiver to play with.
If you choose to deposit, then get ready for the trio of welcome bonuses Pocket Vegas has on offer. Deposit at least £10 for each of your first three payments and you'll be rewarded with:
- 200% Match on your first deposit, up to £50
- 100% Match on your second deposit, up to £200
- 50% Match on your third deposit, up to £250
On top of these great rewards, Pocket Vegas is also giving players a £5 Spinback bonus. This means that if you're first spin isn't a winning spin, Pocket Vegas will match up to £5 of the price of the spin.
All bonus are, of course, subject to wagering requirements which are set at a quite reasonable 35x for your deposit match bonuses. However, your £5 no deposit bonus is tied to a huge 100x wagering requirements so it might be best to swerve this one.,
In addition to all those bonuses for new players, Pocket Vegas have a selection of great promotions too. Here are some of our current active deals:
- Bonus Bank – Fancy some extra weekday cash? From Monday to Thursday, 6pm to 9pm is ‘Bonus Bank' time, which is basically like happy hour at your favourite bar. Simply make a deposit of £10 or more, and you'll receive a 25% bonus, up to £50.
- 10% Tuesday Cashback – To make the start of the week that bit better, Pocket Vegas are offering 10% cashback, up to £50, on all of your losses! This means that if things don't go your way on a Tuesday, you can sleep easy knowing you'll have some extra funds tomorrow. To qualify you need to have made a deposit of at least £10 in the 7 days previous, and your bonus will be credited to your account in up to 72 hours.
Pocket Vegas also run seasonal promotions so make sure you check out the promotions page each month to see what's in store.
Deposits & Withdrawals
As part of the Nektan brand, we had no concerns about Pocket Vegas letting us down with their banking system, as every other casino the brand has launched has adopted a variety of methods. Pocket Vegas is no exception and players can deposit via Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafe Card or Boku.
There's a minimum deposit of £10, and a daily maximum of £10,000 for most methods, apart from Boku deposits, which are capped at £30, and PaySafe Card deposits, which are capped at £750.
Withdrawing is also a fairly simple affair, with withdrawals possible via credit/debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, and Paysafe Card. In general, withdrawals will be processed using the same method by which you deposited. There's a £20 minimum withdrawal,and both Neteller and Skrill withdrawals should be instant, whilst Credit/Debit/Paysafe Cards may take up to 48 hours.
Does It Need To Be Unique?
As we've shown already, Pocket Vegas is quite something. We've loved everything about it so far, but there's a little problem with it's lack of originality. Pocket Vegas, is in fact, a complete replica of other Nektan sites. Apart from a different colour scheme and title image, this is basically the same casino as Sapphire Rooms.
So how important is being unique? There's nothing wrong with Pocket Vegas per se, and we've shown it to be a great place to play, so does the appearance of the site matter? Well, no, not really. Of course if the games are good, the promotions are lucrative and it's overall a good looking site, then there should be no issues. We're just a little concerned that there's nothing fresh about the site – it doesn't bring anything new to the table.
Other casinos like Pocket Vegas
Spin Princess – Another Nektan favourite, Spin Princess is the place to go if you think Pocket Vegas wasn't glizty or girly enough for you. Featuring a similar games roster, and the same great welcome bonus deal, the only difference is that it's considerably more pink. That being said, don't let the decor put you off, it's an all round great casino and definitely one to try out.
Mobile Wins – If the mobile billing option has really sealed the deal for you at Pocket Vegas, then why not try out Mobile Wins? This site allows payments made by Pay by Phone, and it also has a very impressive collection of games – both in quanitity and quality. Plus, there's a huge £800 welcome bonus for all new players.
For us, Pocket Vegas is the complete package! We're very happy that Nektan have decided to add a few more titles from other software designers to their roster, as it means that gems like Pocket Vegas can compete with other the big casinos out there.
Apart from great games, Pocket Vegas has generous bonuses and promotions, great customer support, a good selection of banking methods and a great mobile casino app. We could go on, but we wouldn't know where to stop. We're gutted about those high wagering requirements on the no deposit bonus, and we're a bit bored by the lack of originality, but neither of these things are enough to stop Pocket Vegas being a superb place to play and definitely somewhere you should try out.
