Feel royal and be treated like one at the Royal Swipe casino, where welcome bonuses are massive, the game count is huge, mobile billing deposits are super fast and there is a touch of class to everything they do. We know that you’re dying to find out about this casino that offers flawless user experience on any mobile device, so read our Royal Swipe review to get to know all the ins and outs.
Why Royal Swipe Casino?
For a casino that just got established last year, Royal Swipe has done extraordinarily well. Owned and operated by Progress Play, the casino has always has a tempting welcome bonus and has offered deposits by SMS from the get-go, so we think these were two major factors in paving their way to success.
For those who’d dig a little deeper, we’ll have you know that the casino offers nearly a hundred slots on mobile and those games are mostly from Microgaming, a software developer powerhouse. There are also a handful of games from smaller developers such as Elk Studios, Thunderkick and NextGen Gaming too, featuring jackpot games, video slots, card games and much more.
The casino games can be enjoyed instantaneously, as there is no download necessary. All games are compatible with HTML5 browsers, so it doesn’t matter if it’s a stationary PC, an Apple laptop or an iOS or Android mobile device that you’re logging in from, Royal Swipe will run beautifully in all cases.
That said, all of this is wrapped up and packaged on a website that’s almost too good to be true. Designed and coded to perfection, the site is modern, features seamless slot integration and transitions and is also highly professional. There is no doubt in our mind that Royal Swipe means business and will take your business seriously too.

Welcome Bonuses and Current Promotions
We’ve had to review plenty (too many) casinos that have a shabby welcome bonus and/or crappy promotions, so this time around, we’re quite happy that Royal Swipe casino have done decent in both departments.
A welcome package of regal proportions
Alright. We know what you are all waiting to find out, is there a no deposit incentive to join Royal Swipe. We won’t tease you and in short, the answer is no. There is no free cash and no extra spins for just registering at the site, which is slightly disappointing, but somewhat made up for.
Nearly a thousand pounds – £800 – is given to you in bonus cash for the first three deposits that you make on the site:
- 1st deposit – 100% cash match of up to £200
- 2nd deposit – 50% cash match of up to £300
- 3rd deposit – 100% cash match of up to £200
And if you don’t feel ready to commit to the hundreds of pounds in deposits, then anywhere from just £10 will do for all three deposits. That way, you don’t break your bank or overspend in terms of your monthly budget.
A plethora of promotions to go around
After you’ve stuffed your casino account to the brim with the deposit cash matches, you’ll want to keep your eye out for the promotions that run regularly at Royal Swipe.
- Monday Madness – beat the Monday blues before it even starts by taking advantage of the 1st deposit bonus of 100% up to £50 (minimum £20). Simply use the code MONDAY when depositing.
- Extra Spins on Game of the Day – every Wednesday, there is a chance for you to score some extra spins. Eligible players are those who have deposited in the last week and every single one of such players will receive the details as of which game is the participating one and how many extra spins they’ve got. Remember to use them within a week, or otherwise your extra spins will expire.
- Weekly Surprise – you won’t know what hit you during this promotion, as the time when it happens and the prize are both secret. You just need to make a deposit per week and play int he past two weeks to be eligible. After that, the casino Gods decide when and what you get for a surprise!
- Big Cash Weekend Race – running on the third weekend every month, this mini-tournament is an exciting one. Play from Friday to Sunday and if you are one of the top three players who has raked in the most VIP points, you will be rewarded with cold, hard cash. First place takes home £100, second place £75 and third place £50. So rev up your engines and get racing.
- Spin the Slots – every final weekend of the month is when this extra spins promotion takes place. Accumulate at least 125 VIP points during the weekend (Friday to Sunday) and you’ll be credited with 20 extra spins, easy as that!
When you’re on the promotions page, don’t get confused. In some places, the name Royal Swipe doesn’t even appear or appears alongside the Mobile Wins casino’s name. As they are sister casinos, we think that the webmaster simply forgot to change the casino name when he was copy/pasting the copy. Which, we think we can all agree, is a bit crap.
There is a VIP programme that’s rather absurd
It’s a bit confusing to get to the page where the VIP programme is set our and described, but we got there nonetheless! Being a regular customer at Royal Swipe earns you money back, but not a lot by any means.
Let us explain. You’ll get 1 VIP point for every £100 wagered. Uhm, £100? Other casinos have this at £16, so a hundred quid is quite steep, but we will let you decide. Then, every 100 VIP points can be converted back into a measly £1.
Let us do the math. £100 times the 100 VIP points you need equals £10,000. You can convert that into £1? It is quite absurd. It’s a ‘return’ on your investment at precisely 0.01%. If you ask us, forget about the VIP club and it’s ‘rewards’. You’re better off without it.
Yet another Progress Play casino on our radar, Royal Swipe is very similar to Hippozino when it comes to its games portfolio. Microgaming, NextGen Gaming, Thunderkick and Elk Studios games are all available on the beautifully crafted mobile site. As we already mentioned, all the games are created to run on HTML5, so you’ll have no trouble loading them no matter which mobile device you choose.
Microgaming machines and a handful of boutique slots too
It’s a Microgaming powerhouse, Royal Swipe. The casino features many of the most popular slot machines, including Game of Thrones, Thunderstruck II, Foxin’ Wins Again and many more. We won’t go into too much detail as those who love Microgaming will know exactly which slots they want to play, and the chances are big that you will find your favourites at Royal Swipe.
In addition, there are precisely 11 jackpot games to choose from too and although we’re a bit saddened by the fact that Immortal Romance or Mega Moolah progressives aren’t featured, there is still a healthy selection of jackpots at Royal Swipe.
Meanwhile, Elk Studios, Thunderkick and NextGen games provide Royal Swipe with a slight edge over Microgaming-exclusive casinos, because those modern games lift the mobile games portfolio of the casino to a higher level with the gorgeous graphics and video features, something which many of Microgaming’s machines are lacking.
Live games on desktop only, but enjoy the cards and scratchcards
You can also take a chance on the many variants of table games, including roulette, blackjack and poker. There are multiple variants of each game offered on mobile, but if you prefer the live dealer version, then you’ll have to sit down at your stationary computer as that’s only available on the desktop version of Royal Swipe.
And if you like cards, but the scratchy type, there are scratchcards on Royal Swipe desktop too.
Banking at Conquer Casino couldn’t be easier, as they’ve adopted a plethora of payment methods to suit everyone. From mobile billing to prepaid cards, Conquer Casino have really pushed the boat out to make sure everyone is catered for. We must also note how impressed we are by ProgressPlay’s move to adopt Pay by Phone as a depositing method at all of their casinos. We know we harp on about mobile billing a bit too much, but it really does make the handset experience so much more efficient.
When it comes to depositing at Royal Swipe mobile casino…
…things couldn’t be easier. In addition to paying by SMS (phone bill), you can also use VISA, VISA Debit, VISA Electron, VISA Delta, Mastercard, Maestro, JCB, Solo, Switch, Diners Club, Discover, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, Ukash and iDeal.
Gasp. That’s a whole lot of deposit methods. Chances are you’re aware of our passion for mobile phone billing, but if not, we can’t wait to reiterate how easy and simple this method is. Simply choose the ‘pay by phone’ option in your banking account at Royal Swipe, pick an amount you wish to deposit (from £10 to £30 maximum) and you’re set. The funds will reach your gaming account instantly and for free, and the sum that you indicated will be added to your monthly telephone bill. Easy peasy.
We won’t go on and on about the other methods as we are sure you’re more than capable of using a credit/debit card, e-wallet or a prepaid voucher to deposit.
Are the withdrawals easy too?
The available withdrawal methods: VISA, Maestro, Neteller, Skrill, iDeal, Ukash, bank transfer and cheque. All the details about the minimum and maximum transaction amounts are set out very clearly on the Withdrawal Policy page at Royal Swipe, so we won’t type everything up again. That’s because chances are somethings could change and we’d hate to provide you with outdated info.
All withdrawals will sit as pending for three business days and then it will take Royal Swipe another business day to clear them. Only then do they initiate the money transfer via your preferred method and you can expect your cash in four days totally if you use an e-wallet, or even up to 28 business days if you are expecting a cheque in the mail. Add weeks for the cheque to clear and you’ve got a colossal cash out time, but let’s stay positive. Hope the cheque arrives with you in a few days and your bank clears it in just two days too!
Smiling faces of a stock photograph beam right at you on the support page at Royal Swipe and for a good reason. The casino has a team of highly trained customer service reps that will and can attend to your every need.
It’s a pity that you can only contact them via Live Chat or Contact Form by 6:00AM to 23:00PM GMT, because if you need help straight away at night, then it won’t be available. In any case, the casino directs you towards their handy FAQ page, just in case you’ve panicked about an issue, but can find the right answer by just reading the helpful Q&As.
Actually, it still puzzles us as to why casinos would opt not to have 24/7 customer service as players can log in and gamble at any time. Logic would dictate that there would always be someone looking over the site and the players while they are gaming, but we guess casino customer services aren’t a game of logics at Royal Swipe casino.
As the name of the casino suggests, it’s a mobile affair. Swiping your way through the games portfolio or scrolling through the promotions page to see which one to take advantage of next is a beautiful experience at Royal Swipe.
The casino definite means business when it comes to leading the way in the remote gambling industry, plus it’s got a sizable welcome bonus to boot.
In addition to all that, Royal Swipe makes a point to reiterate how seriously it takes the security and fairness. The casino is not just registered and regulated in Malta, but by the UK Gambling Commission as well. All of the game machine outcomes are determined by a random number generator (RNG), so you can rest assured that your mobile gambling is fair and safe too.
A con of massive proportions would be the VIP programme, where a return of just 0.01% would make the scheme better off dead than being presented as a legit loyalty scheme. You can’t fool us, Royal Swipe.
All in all, we feel that Royal Swipe deserves the four stars that we’ve awarded them. Some obvious points of improvement, we think, would be to offer a bit more in terms of its welcome bonus, scrapping of the VIP programme and 24/7 customer service too.
