About The Online Casino

This site launched in August 2018. When you first land at The Online Casino you would never guess that it is a site that sits on the Nektan platform. Now, given the popularity of this particular platform with new casino sites, that shows two things. One, they know a good thing when they see it, as Nektan are undisputed leaders in the field of online gaming. Two, the operator is making the effort to have the site stand out from the crowd, just as you would expect when claiming to be THE online casino!

We love the gradient of blacks and greys and the grass green colour of the logo and other graphics. The site looks the business right from the first moment. You also get to see a list of the good things you will find inside, such as slots, live casino, scratchcards and instant win games. By having a listing for mobile they are showing that there is a huge choice should that be your favoured method of play. There is also a promotions listing and a blog which tackles all kinds of issues gaming and gambling related, from the history of the games to top 10s of themed slots like Hollywood films.

The player is always the first priority here and the policies relating to playing the games, the promotions and the offers are all related in straightforward, transparent terms. The site is 100% safe and secure, employing all the latest security protocols for your piece of mind.

With the growth in popularity of the Nektan platform it is worth noting that although you can join as many of these sites as you wish, you can only claim welcome offers on up to 3 accounts within the Nektan network in any 30 day period.

Featured games and operators

All the top software houses love to work with Nektan as they know the firm supplies a superior product. As a player at The Online Casino you will enjoy the best games from the best developers. There are over 500 games to choose from by big names including SG Interactive, Evolution Gaming, Red Tiger, Elk Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, IGT and eyecon, Nektan, Yggdrasil and NYX.

Slots

By far the biggest section of the site. For this reason it is good news that you can narrow down your choices in the filter section in the sidebar. Choose from Player Favourites, Jackpots, New Games, Exclusive or All – there are also options to get you straight to the table games and live dealer action. You can even choose to see which are the ‘hot games’ of the moment and check out if you want to try and get in on some of that action.

It is always good to know that when you choose a site to play you will be sure to enjoy the latest released without delay and this is exactly the case at The Online Casino. Berry Burst, Hot Safari, John Hunter and the Secrets of DaVinci’s Treasure and Pixie Wings are just a few of the most recent games we found on our visit.

You can also choose by the level of wins designated to a game. From very big to very frequent, you have the freedom to choose to play your own way.

There are Slingo games here too and if the choice is just too much, the games are all listed in alpha order in the All Games section so you can take a leisurely scroll and click anything that catches your eye to try.

Arcade Bomb and Asgardian Stones, Bonanza and Bridesmaids, Dragonz, Game of Thrones, Huangdi, Lucky Leprechaun, Monster Wheels, Montezuma, Rainbow Riches and Redroo and Rocket Men – the list goes on and on and the new mix with the classic for an all-round slots experience.

Casino and live dealer games

Nice choice of casino and table games. If you opt for the Casino Games filter you do get the live dealer versions included and they do seem to take precedence, which indicates their growing popularity with players. There are many versions of Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker, including speed versions. There is also the Dream Catcher room and the Football Studio, which players are really enjoying.

Scratchcards

Not a huge choice, but at The Online Casino they know that players love the instant gratification that a scratchcard offers and that thanks to advances in technology the online experience can be as satisfying as playing a shop bought card. Some of the cards on offer are scratchcard versions of popular slot games like Merlins Millions, PandaMania and Volcano Eruption.

Instant Win

For a change, why not try the Instant Win section. One click, instant launch and instant result. With names like Quick Fir Cash and Fast Buck Lucky, you know you are in for a speedy good time.

Wagering and withdrawal

  • Minimum withdrawal: £20
  • Processing time: 3 – 5 working days
  • Wagering requirement: 40x deposit and bonus

Players at The Online Casino are promised fast withdrawals, but timescales will vary with the deposit method used. E-wallet users will likely see their withdrawal back with them a bit faster than debit card users for instance.

Withdrawal requests are limited to one per day up to £2,000 and a monthly limit of £5,000.

The weighting of certain games to meet wagering requirements can differ depending on the games you choose to play. See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since the time of writing.

Withdrawals will be paid back to the same payment method as the deposit when possible due to anti money laundering laws.

Winnings from bonus spending will go to the bonus balance until the wagering requirements have been met in full.

No fees should be incurred when making a withdrawal, but the site does reserve the right to do so should there be any unusual transaction processing fees applied.

Photo id, proof of address and a copy of the card used may be requested.

Help and support

24/7 customer support is promised, with all channels manned by support professionals, fully trained to be able to answer all your queries promptly and efficiently.

  • Live Help
  • Tel: 0203 876 2791

Although waiting times should be short, should you want to avoid any wait at all there is a comprehensive FAQ section to refer to. In addition, some of the social media channels operated by the site offer an alternate method of contact.

Social media

We love to see new slots and casino sites take the time and effort to set up social media channels. It shows a bit more forethought and attention to detail.

Facebook: The Facebook page was ready for the launch of the site and that very rarely happens, so more points for organisation and planning ahead. For now, the focus is on the welcome offer and promoting all the good things the site has to offer, such as its 450+ games and its live dealer rooms. In addition, you will find some of the newest games highlighted on the page to encourage you to give them a try.

Twitter: Early days for the Twitter account too. How to play the games, the welcome offers, game history info and the odd giveaway thrown in.

The site has also set up Google+ and Instagram accounts to ensure all the social bases are covered. Any one of these channels will keep you up to date on new game launches and the best offers available.

The Online Casino on mobile and tablet

As the use of mobile devices is growing for everything, including playing online casino, slots and bingo games, it goes without saying that the mobile experience here is first rate. Any site that wants to thrive will ensure that its players can enjoy a first-rate mobile casino experience and not be stuck to their laptop or pc.

Play on any smartphone or tablet and you will find that the gameplay on mobile syncs seamlessly with more conventional static devices. Log in via your favourite browser or download the relevant app and enjoy the best of the offers and games available wherever you may be.

The number and selection of games, the navigation, the jackpots and the service translate well to mobile devices and you will have no trouble finding exactly what you are looking for.
