Casino Epoca Review
Casino Epoca is one of those casinos where you need an epic level of patience... The main website is old and clunky as hell, but it gets better when you find your way to the game lobby. In there you'll find a solid collection of Microgaming games, live casino section, 24/7 live chat, and a remarkable bonus calendar. Read more on the last one below, this shit is golden. The welcome bonus is rather bad, but we've seen worse (you know, kinda like a doctor scoffs at your open fracture and says it's alright and he'd seen worse; cold comfort). A decent place to check out anyway.
- License from Malta;
- Live chat is 24/7;
- Great choice of Microgaming games;
- Long list of available withdrawal methods;
- Looks poor and dated;
- High wagering requirements on the welcome bonus;
Casino Epoca was founded in 2012 by Bayton Ltd. It is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Players will find themselves in good hands at this casino, as they have implemented the industry standard SSL encryption technology to protect you from hackers.
Their website isn’t exactly the most impressive one we’ve seen. We’ll even say it’s clumsy, unclear, and lags sometimes, not letting you navigate around the pages. Their platform is available in both the downloadable and instant play options. The latter looks pretty cool, much better that the main thing, with all the necessary game categories, a search bar, and some extra filters like hot/cold games.
Customer Support: The support is available 24/7 via live chat, telephone, and email.
“Customer service is always available, making it easy to solve your problems at any time of day.”
Banking: The options are good here. You can use all the popular withdrawal methods like Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and some less-popular like instaDebit, EcoPayz, Pay Spark and some others. Withdrawals via e-wallets should take 1-2 days to reach you (which is alright), and the minimum amount you can request to cash out is €50 (which is not alright).
Software and Game Variety
Casino Epoca is exclusively powered by Microgaming software provider. Nothing surprising here in the library:
- Slots: Hellboy, Lucky Koi, Mega Moolah, Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II, Avalon;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Poker;
- Video Poker: Deuces Wild, Double Double Bonus Poker, Aces and Faces, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Deuces and Joker.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Casino Epoca offers live casino games powered by Evolution gaming platform. The choice is great, and includes traditional blackjack, baccarat, and roulette, as well as texas hold’em, caribbean stud, three card poker, and Dream Catcher (wheel-of-fortune kind of game).
Mobile players have access with the use of most modern mobile devices. However, the selection of mobile games is a bit limited.
Bonuses and Promotions
New players at Casino Epoca get a 100% match on their first deposit, up to €200. It comes with rather high wagering requirements - 50x the bonus value. There’s one shady clause in the terms - the casino reserves the right to limit the winnings from a bonus to 6 times the deposit value. Mind that it’s not always applied, they just can do it whenever they please (which is even worse, if you ask us). Other than that, the bonus terms seem to be pretty straightforward.
“They also have a special treat for you - a weekly bonus calendar!”
Every day you get some cool surprise from the casino to encourage you coming back, and… Um, what? Tuesday special - Guaranteed Match Offer; Wednesday special - Guaranteed Match Offer; Thursday special - Guaranteed Match Offer. Gee, that’s a tough one, we don’t even know where to look first. We’ll probably wait till Saturday and take that Guaranteed Match Offer, thank you very much.
