Card Casino is a Jack of all games, but hardly an Ace of any. On one hand, it has a versatile gaming library of NetEnt, Microgaming and Play’n GO titles, a solid reputation among the players, and a crisp modern website. On the other, the Curacao license is weak, the customer support is email-only, and bonus system introduces some mighty strange game mechanics. There is no such thing as welcome bonus in Card Casino, but every first deposit of the day can yield up to 500 free spins (five times the deposit amount) on Fire Joker. Additionally, the platform offers one secret ‘quest promotion’ every day, which requires meeting certain conditions and taking actions. And if you’re not careful with your cash bonuses, you may end up setting your fingers on fire. Figuratively speaking.
- Great design & mobile version;
- Good reputation with players;
- Game versatility;
- No withdrawal limits.
- Customer support is email-only;
- Short-lived cash bonuses with high WRs.
Card Casino was established by Elec Games Limited Casinos back in 2011; it was one of the first online casinos in the Eastern European market. The web page is modern, straightforward, and fast, built upon a very stable platform. Card Casino is regulated – or let’s just call it ‘licensed’ – by Curacao eGaming.
For the safety of its players, Card Casino implements the industry standard SSL encryption technology. This ensures that your sensitive data will be safe once it is transferred to the server. The casino also ensures that its games are regularly audited to guarantee that your outcomes are always fair and random.
Customer Support. This is where things go sour. In the age of toll-free phones and live chats, email as the only Customer Support option looks antediluvian. Even with the decent response time, it’s still very inconvenient. On top of that, the FAQ are sparse, so most likely you’ll have to refrain to email anyway.

Banking. Card Casino offers a typical set of banking options: Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Trustly, and Zimpler, along with the standard card and wire transfer. Withdrawals should take up to 24 hours for e-wallets, while with wire transfer the payout time might increase to 5 days. Card Casino accepts payments in Euro and Swedish Kroner. There are no restrictions on withdrawals stated in terms and conditions; the minimum deposit is €10.
Software and Game Variety
Card Casino’s software base, although rather modest in size, is quite diverse. It is presented by three major developers, NetEnt, Microgaming, and Play’n GO, and two lesser suppliers, Takisto and Ezugi. There are enough games of every type to satisfy even the most demanding taste. In this sense, Card Casino effectively screws Karl Marx’s law of dialectics, proving that quantity does not necessarily transform into quality. Among 300+ titles present on the website, you will find some 250 slots, a few dozen table games, about twenty video poker variations, and even a couple of scratch cards.
- Slots: Highlander, Scrooge, Fu Er Dai, Shangri-La, Troll Hunters, Holiday Season
- Table Games: Baccarat, Russian Poker, Beat Me, Classic Blackjack, Super Wheel
- Video Poker: Aces and Faces, Jacks or Better, Jackpot Poker, Double Bonus
- Other Games: Mahjong, Money Wheel
Mobile and Live Gaming
For such a sleek website, we expected a similarly stylish, fast, and functional mobile version. Card Casino did not disappoint us. Well, almost. The site asks for permission before loading the mobile version on a mobile device, which is like a waiter asking if he can bring the dinner after you’ve made your order. Thankfully, it does that only once.
Live casino is presented by NetEnt Live Lobby, which features two types of blackjack and a live roulette. Disappointingly, the mobile version of Live Lobby is unavailable.
Bonuses and Promotions
Although Card Casino does not offer a fixed entry bonus at the moment, it is the abundance of small daily bonuses that makes the promotion system stand out. New players immediately get up to 500 free spins on Fire Joker, since every first daily deposit yields 5x the deposit amount in freebies.
All the bonuses should be played through within three days. Spin, baby, spin!
And if these bonus spins aren’t good enough, Card Casino offers a small ‘bonus quest’ every day. To activate this bonus, you have to take a certain action or meet a designated condition, such as ‘bet on 5 games using mobile version only’, or ‘wager €10 on a single bet’. Completing these quests will automatically grant you free spins or small cash bonuses. That said, we have to give you a warning about cash bonuses: they should be cleared within three days following their activation, against the typical wagering requirement of 40x bonus. Spin, baby, spin!!
