In the online casino world, the majority of the brands ‘drown’ in the industry noise, but there are a handful of exceptional brands that stand out. What I’m talking about is no other than Vera and John casino. It’s one of those brands that offers an outstanding number of games from the best developers only, high-quality customer support and a hassle-free environment to play in. But is it the “best thing that happened to the world since sliced bread” as they claim? I explore this online casino to find out, but based on my first impression, that might be a fair claim indeed.

Vera and John are really the most popular kids on the block, because they have all of the most popular, highly-rated and hip games available on their website. Starburst? Check. Mega Moolah? Check. Da Vinci Diamonds, and so on? Check! Generally speaking, without spreading itself too thin, it focuses on the hottest games, but also features Blackjack, Roulette, 3-reel slot classics, video poker, scratch cards, table games – the list goes on and on.
Vera and John seeks to appeal to as many as possible, because they offer games from so many software developers. There are the most popular slots from the major providers, but the casino has also hand-picked some of the most exciting games from the smaller, boutique developers. So no matter what your preference is when it comes to mobile gambling, you bet you can find it on Vera and John.
Lastly, there are 30 Jackpot games too, ranging from Bell Fortune with a payout of £1,134, to Good Girl, Bad Girl at £11,349, to Mega Moolah ISIS at a whopping £2,338,939.
Joining is very easy – just make sure your eyes are used to the bright blue background and pink bubbles everywhere. You’ll need just your email address and a password to start playing and winning some sweet cash. You can get a 100% bonus of up to £100 for the first deposit. This bonus has a 40 times wagering requirement that must be fulfilled and different games count for a different percentage towards those requirements (check the webpage for more information). Other fixed amount bonuses are available after you register too. Check your account page regularly to find if you have qualified for any or keep an eye out for any newsletter that drops into your inbox.
There are also other special promotions available almost daily on the website.
There are so many promotional events happening at Vera and John at any given time that it is tough to keep track. Collecting badges, trophies and achievements, levelling up, collecting coins and exchanging them for ever more exciting bonuses are all part of this mobile casino. Furthermore, they give away £50,000 guaranteed in hard, cold cash to a lucky player every month, maybe you could be it?
Tournaments are a big part of Vera and John too and they take place every day of the week, so if it’s something that you enjoy, it might be worthwhile checking it out. Simply log in and check on the right hand side which tournament is taking place at the moment and which slot is participating. To take part, you must play with real money and follow the requirements (terms and conditions) that are set out for each tournament. If you win, note that there may be certain wagering requirements attached to your winnings. Good luck!
And if all of that wasn’t enough, there is a ‘Refer a Friend’ programme, which can see you earn 285 Vera and John coins for inviting a friend to play, that you get to purchase spin credits, free rounds and bonus cups in the shop. The more fun for free – the better!
Back to Top.
Vera and John stick to the tried and trusted methods of depositing. VISA, MasterCard, Maestro, Eco card, Skrill, Neteller, PaySafeCard all can be used to instantly boost your gaming wallet. There is a minimum deposit of £10 and a maximum deposit of £500, which isn’t meant to hinder the most typical of players. However, if you have higher needs and demands, you can always contact their customer support to talk about increasing those limits.
You must use the method of deposit to withdraw money to and depending on which method that is, the withdrawal times differ. They process all withdrawals in 24 hours or less and until it’s processed, you can always cancel it). For example, credit cards can take anywhere from one to ten business days, according to the live chat support as the information is not readily available on the site.
It is worth keeping in mind that, strangely, withdrawals under €50 are subject to a €5 fee and the maximum withdrawal sum at any one time is €2,000.
One of a Kind Feature
How kind of Vera and John to acknowledge, unlike many other casinos, that customisation is something exciting and valued by players. Because no two players are alike, why should their mobile casino lobbies be? At Vera and John, you can create your own lobby, sort of a landing page, with a custom background and your favourite games clearly on display. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is also highly practical and makes the entire experience much more pleasing. You can even select a playlist as part of your casino room to play while you are gaming!
Some of the designs currently on offer:
- Norwegian themed room with snow skis, woollen jerseys and a comfy couch
- Finnish room that looks like a sauna with steam stones and plenty of towels
- Swedish-inspired country cottage in an evergreen forest
- Asian garden room that is Zen all around
It’s very simple to create your own casino room. When you are playing a game, just click on “Make Favourite” tab at the bottom half of the page and the next time you visit the homepage, you will have a casino room ready to be fully customised. And the best part of all – when you customise your room, you get extra Vera and John Casino coins to exchange for bonuses. Other players can also rate your room if they like it, giving you 10 coins and you can rate someone else’s room in exchange for 5 coins.
There is not a single mismatched pixel at Vera and John, not a glitch anywhere in the user interface or navigation on whichever device you try to play on. The bright design, flawless graphics and the feeling of openness and positivity pervades Vera and John – you know you will have a good time playing here and with the plethora of games and very generous jackpot slots, you can also be sure of big wins to come. To sum up, offering personalisation that is unlike anywhere else, constant promotions that are appealing, and an attractive welcome bonus – Vera and John is an overall splendid casino.
