Casilando — Intro
Having spent a decent amount of time paying at Casilando and trying to get our heads around the casino, the best we can say is that it’s a casino with a bit of split personality – if you can say it has a personality at all. While it has arguably smashed the task of offering the games every player will want, it’s done so in such a way as to stifle any sense of character the site might otherwise have.
The promotions too are hard to define – a somewhat generous welcome bonus will be celebrated by some and hated by others, while the promotions and bonuses for returning players will leave you scratching your head and asking ‘is that it?’.
Our intro didn’t exactly have you hooked? Well look, we’re probably giving this site a harder time than it deserves. If you’re into seeking out decent welcome bonuses, although you’re not going to be totally blown away, there’s some decent bonuses to be claimed here, with a £300 first deposit bonus, on top of the chance to claim up to 100 extra spins.
Then there’s the games! While you’re probably going to be spending more time choosing your games than playing them, there’s more than 1,000 titles available at the casino, including games from pretty much any genre you could possibly name. There’s definitely fun to be had at this casino, just don’t expect a warm welcome, or for it to be easy to work out what you’re going to play.
Payout time (days)
As mentioned above, this is no doubt the most impressive element of all at Casilando. If we told you up front that there’s games from 19 different developers, you might start to get some idea of what you’ve got in store for you. Casilando takes the scattergun approach to games; rather than specialising in one genre, it offers slots, casino games, bingo, scratch cards, live tables and even a handful of virtual reality games to try out if you have the equipment (yeah, we were pretty impressed too).
There’s far too many titles for us to start singling any out – which, to be perfectly honest, is pretty much the problem with the site at large – but there’s some real gems in there if you can commit the time to looking for them. The site has all the latest and best high profile games from big name developers like Microgaming, NetEnt and Evolution Gaming, but also pads out its offering with a bunch of exciting titles you might not have heard of from more independent developers like Games Warehouse, Elk Studios, Lightning Box and Multicommerce Game Studio.
Welcome Bonuses And Promotions
So let’s talk about the elephant in the room; the welcome bonus package. What’s on offer is the kind of welcome bonuses which are bound to split opinion, with it really being a matter of taste based on the way you play whether you like it or not. We’re not questioning the generosity of the bonuses – there’s a lot of money to be claimed and won, but it just might not suit everyone.
So firstly there’s the extra spins. In total, when you sign up, there’s going to be 100 extra spins available for you to claim. However, only 10 of these are available before you make any deposits, with the subsequent 90 credited upon you making your first deposit. The good news is that you’re able to claim these extra spins on a surprisingly large range of games (though all NetEnt slots). You can play them on:
– Starburst (obviously)
– Joker Pro
– Pyramid: Quest for Immortality
– Steam Tower
– Fruit Shop
Then there’s the deposit bonus. Once you’ve used your initial 10 extra spins and want to make a deposit, you’ll find yourself eligible for a 100% deposit bonus worth up to a pretty impressive £300. It’s a nice helping of free cash and a high winning potential with those extra spins. Not to everyone’s taste though.
Deposit Bonus and Some More Extra Spins
While the welcome bonus is pretty decent, there’s not a whole lot to get excited about when we start talking about the bonuses and promotions available for returning players at Casilando. Apart from the fact that most of the time there’s at least one or two seasonal promotions running (usually along the lines of deposit bonuses and prize draws), recurring promotions are pretty thin on the ground.
There’s the refer a friend bonus – which will see you able to claim a pretty standard £10 for every depositing friend you manage to get to sign up – and a loyalty scheme. This loyalty is basically the saving grace of the casino’s promotions offering, with players able to claim points on every game they play, which can then be turned into bonus cash. The conversion rate isn’t great, but the bonus is open to every player, regardless of how much you gamble.
Banking over at Casilando is a pretty standard affair, given that the choice of payment and withdrawal options – although pretty useful – lacks heavily in imagination. There’s the standard selection of credit and debit cards on offer, on top of your usual suspects when it comes to e-wallets – Neteller, Paysafe Card, Visa, Skrill. All withdrawals can be made via the same methods you deposited with.
