When we heard of 138 for the first time, we thought that would be another one of those Asian-oriented, weird-looking casinos, which would make you yank out your hair. In fact, it was such a long time ago. But now, these guys decided to change their life, and improved their casino a lot. Now they offer over 330 game titles from such providers as Microgaming, Playson, Booming Games, and Red Tiger. They also have a functional mobile casino and some live games. As a newcomer, you can’t get a 138% bonus, up to €138. It would be really funny. Instead, you will get a 100% first deposit bonus, up to €100, plus 25 free spins on top. Thank God, the wagering requirements are acceptable - 35 times the bonus value. Their biggest drawback is a poor choice of the withdrawal options.
138 is powered by TGP Europe Ltd of James House, 1st Floor, 11-13 Hill Street, Douglas, Isle of Man IM1 1EF. 138.co.uk is Licensed by Fesuge Limited of P.O. Box 227. 138.co.uk was founded in 2012 by FESUGE Limited. They are regulated by the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man, and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. They also hold a long list of restricted countries, and are more than happy to let you know if you’re on the outs. There is a single language option available by the way - English. Maybe, they will add some more very soon, as they do have a drop-down language menu.
Their website is trying to be modern, as they have launched a brand-new website design in June, 2018. Overall, the website looks okay, with nothing really outstanding about it. Well, an awesome website might not be on their list of priorities, but player safety definitely is. This casino implements the industry standard SSL encryption, as well as added firewall technology. These features ensure that your sensitive data transfers securely and remains that way on their servers.

Customer Support: The customer service is offered 24/7 via live chat and standard email communication. The live chat agents are friendly and helpful. Well, it’s not bad, but they could definitely add a telephone number and some more support options. If you want to play at the casino that provides a telephone support, then try out Bet365 Casino, Quatro Casino, and BetOnline Casino.
Banking: Just like at BetBright Casino, the selection of withdrawal options is extremely limited, but at least, it includes some popular methods - Visa, MasterCard, and Skrill. At least, they have no strict payout limits or long withdrawals. The withdrawals are limited to €5,000 per day for credit cards and €10,000 per day for eWallets. Skrill withdrawals are processed instantly while the processing of the credit card withdrawals will take from 1 to 3 days.
Software and Game Variety
138 is powered by Red Tiger, Microgaming, Booming Games, Playson, and some other developers. Overall, they have just about 330 game titles in total, and the majority of them are slots. They also feature the “Red Tiger” section, but it’s empty for the unknown reasons.
Speaking of the navigation around the game lobby - it’s surprisingly convenient. All the games can be filtered by type, provider, RTP, volatility, the number of reels, and by some other features. You can also use a search bar, which is pretty nice of them. Now, let’s check out some of their game titles:
- Slots: Alice in Wonderslots, Game of Thrones, Immortal Romance;
- Jackpots: Cash Splash, Fruits Fiesta, Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile;
- Table Games: Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack, Hi-Lo;
- Video Poker: All American Poker, Joker Poker, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild.
138 Mobile and Live Gaming
138bet offers a good selection of live games. There are over 20 different live gaming options, but these include only Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat.
You also have an instant access to their casino with the use of your smartphone or tablet. Just open the casino in your browser, and you’re good to go.
Bonuses and Promotions
Thankfully, the guys from 138 com were wise enough to upgrade their Promotions section as well, so that they added several Welcome Bonuses - one for sports fans, one for live game enthusiasts, and one for the casino of course. The latter is a 100% match bonus, up to €100 on your first deposit, plus 25 free spins on Viking Gods.
Maybe, it’s not the most generous and attractive bonus we have ever seen, but it comes with fair wagering requirements - 35 times the bonus amount. The free spins winnings should be wagered 20 times only and are limited to €500. The only catch here is that only the deposits made with credit/debit cards qualify for this bonus. By the way, don’t forget to use the bonus code - “CASINO100”.
For the UK players: all the above-mentioned bonus terms are the same.
