Aston Casino Review
We bet you have thought that the casino will be filled up with numerous supercars and hypercars. No doubts, the casino is nice, but it’s not as awesome as Aston Martin cars. When it comes to games library, Aston Casino takes quality over quantity. The don’t have a thousand of games, but every one of those they have is decent, as they are powered by such top-notch providers like NetEnt and Microgaming.
They are decent in some other aspects as well: mobile casino is excellent, banking options are diverse. However, their 100% Welcome Bonus up to €200 suck. It’s sticky and carries high wagering requirements - 50xB. If they had better support and welcome bonus, we’d be glad to call them good. As it stands, they’re rather average.
- Licenses from the UK and Malta;
- Wide selection of withdrawal options;
- Over 18 software developers;
- Mobile friendly;
- Live games available.
- The support is available only via email;
- The Welcome Bonus is sticky;
- €5 bet limit during an active bonus;
- Relatively high wagering requirements - 50xB.
Aston Casino was established in 2012 and is operated by Progress Play Limited. It holds two respectable licenses - from both UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority. The casino is also SSL secured, ensuring the privacy of all your personal information. What is weird, however, is that you can request to see all the personal data that the casino holds for you, but you’ll have to pay €10 for that.
The website looks and feels alright, with black and gold theme, convenient navigation and useful extra filters. The main page welcomes you with regularly changing banners offering their latest promotions.
You should also know that here, as in all other ProgressPlay casinos, you’ll see weird terms about the UK players’ account dormancy. Suchlike accounts become dormant after six months of inactivity, and after that, the casino levies a monthly fee at a rate of 10% of the account’s balance.
Banking: The banking options could hardly be any better and include popular methods and local ones. Skrill, credit cards, Neteller, Bank Wire, PaysafeCard, Trustly, Qiwi, Webmoney - all these options are available for withdrawals. However, there are some limits for withdrawals - €3,000 per week, and €6,000 per month. The jackpot winnings are excluded from these limits, but not in a way we’re used to. You can withdraw up to €30,000 per month in the case you hit the jackpot, so in case of some Mega Moolah or Major Millions jackpot, it will take about ten years to get your money. It’s ridiculous, as the progressive jackpot winnings aren’t paid by a casino, but are transferred to it by software providers.
Customer Support: The support service is okay, but could be a lot better. These guys don’t have phones, but they have a live chat and emails, and they know how to use them. The support service is available 24/7, so you can get help anytime.
Software and Gaming Variety
This is where Aston Casino stops looking alright and starts looking amazing. While the library is not that huge, it is really diverse and includes games from over a dozen developers. Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, Nyx, Cryptologic, Quickspin and 1x2 Gaming are just the most popular of them. The slots section is hand-down impressive. Best titles from renowned developers - can’t go wrong with that. Let’s check out some of them:
- Slots: Tomb Raider, Thunderstruck, Gonzo’s Quest, Motorhead, Playboy;
- Jackpots: King Cashalot, Mega Moolah, Lots a Loot, Cash Splash;
- Table Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Sharp Shooter, Add One In;
- Video Poker: Double Bonus Poker, Louisiana Double Poker, Deuces Wild.

Mobile and Live Games
As expected, the website works flawlessly on mobile devices - smartphones and tablets. The number of games is somewhat smaller, but the choice is still good.
The casino also offers a decent live gaming experience. Live dealer games are represented by Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Casino Poker.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome bonus at Aston Casino is on the lower side of average: a 100% match bonus up to €200 on the first deposit. The wagering requirements are really high - x50 on the bonus amount. However, the most disappointing thing is that the bonus is sticky. You can withdraw only the winnings gained from the bonus funds, and the bonus will be deducted from your balance when you first withdraw. And note, that the maximum allowed bet is €5.
“The Welcome bonus at Aston Casino is worthless: a sticky 100% match bonus up to €200 on the first deposit.”
As far as we see, Aston Casino guys think that a phantom bonus isn’t bad enough, so they added another tricky clause about it. For the residents of some countries the WR’s are 100xB. There is no list of such countries, and you have to email their support to get it.
Luckily, there are numerous other promos available at any time. Just check the Promotions page and choose those that suit you best. There’s a VIP Club available for loyal players, where you grow through the ranks as you play and get access to additional bonuses and rewards.
