Buran Casino Review
Buran Casino only appeared this year and it looks good so far. The games are numerous and diverse, the welcome package is great (you don't see 30 times the bonus wagering too often these days), and the support is excellent. The live casino is currently not available, but they should fix it soon enough. The place is well worth a try.
Buran Casino opened in 2017. It seems to have Russian roots, and caters to the Eastern European audience. They are licensed by the Government of Curacao, and tested by TST.
The website looks alright. Dark blue colors, ‘cosmic’ theme, nice instant play lobby with software and game type categories - there’s nothing to complain about. Except maybe occasional cyrillic phrases that pop up here and there regardless of your language settings.
The banking options are as diverse as it can get - Skrill, Neteller, credit cards, Webmoney, ecoPayz, Bitcoin, Giropay, and several more. The only weird clause in the terms when it comes to withdrawals is this: “Minimum funds rollover before withdrawal is x3”. It’s not even bonus-related, meaning if you decide to withdraw before playing through the deposit three times, they’ll charge you 10% of the sum.
The support is available through live chat (in several languages) and email 24/7, and via a couple of toll-free phones (for Russia and Europe) from 10:00 to 20:00 ‘Moscow time’.
Software and Game Variety
“The games collection at Buran Casino is fantastic - over 1000 titles from a dozen developers (NetEnt, Microgaming, Quickspin, EGT, Betsoft, and more).”
The slots section is immense. Long-time popular hits from well-known providers (Immortal Romance, Steam Tower, Jack and the Beanstalk, RockStar, At the Copa), recent releases (Wolf Cub, Pixie Wings, Emoticoins), progressive jackpots (Cosmic Fortune, Inca Gold) - they seem to have everything.
Card games tab includes blackjack, video poker, casino poker, baccarat, as well as bingo and keno for some reason. There are also several roulette variations in a separate section.
Mobile and Live Games
The website works well on mobile devices right in the browser. The navigation gets kinda clunky though, and most of the categories disappear for some reason. In any case, the games run fine, and that’s what matters most.
Live casino is there, but it’s not. Meaning there’s a ‘Live Casino’ tab in the menu, but it’s empty, with not a single game in it. The support told us that it’s temporary. We’ll check back with them later to see if anything changes.
Bonuses and Promotions
Buran Casino gives you bonuses on the first three deposits, as a part of their Welcome Package offer. On the first one you get a 100% match bonus up to €300 plus 200 free spins (25 each day for 8 days).
“The wagering requirements are cool - x35 on the bonus amount.”
Only slots contribute toward the wagering, and not even all of them in full (read the bonus terms for the complete list). There’s also a bet limit of €5 per spin while playing with a bonus. Other that that, the welcome is pretty warm.
