Casino Epoca Review
Casino Epoca is one of those casinos where you need an epic level of patience... The main website is old-fashioned and clunky as hell, but it gets better when you find your way to the lobby. There you’ll find around 500 games, mostly from Microgaming. As well as a live casino section, 24/7 live chat, and a remarkable bonus calendar. Read more on the last one below, this feature is amazing!
The welcome bonus is not too bad, and 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). So, you can get a 100% bonus, up to €200, with the wagering requirement of 50 times the bonus. A decent place to check out anyway.
- License from Malta;
- 24/7 live chat;
- Great choice of Microgaming games;
- Nice choice of live games;
- Laggy website;
- No phone support;
- Some terms and conditions are a bit confusing.
Casino Epoca was founded in 2012. It is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. You will find yourself 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 a bit 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 than 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, which is cool. However, it available only via live chat and email. That’s not bad, but it would be amazing if the casino would have more contact options.
Banking: The banking options are good here. You can use the popular withdrawal methods like Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz, Bank Transfer, 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). The withdrawal limit won’t create any trouble for you - €10,000 per day. Just note that if your withdrawal sum is 5 or more times bigger than total deposit amount across the entire casino group, than your withdrawals will be limited to €4,000 per week.
Software and Game Variety
Casino Epoca is powered exclusively by Microgaming. In total, there are almost 500 games. Not bad! There is also a section called Vegas. It looks rather messy, and there are a lot of games which are available in the main lobby. But you can still find here some games from NetEnt like Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Dead or Alive, Jack Hammer, etc. So, let’s have a closer look at their game library:
- Slots: Hellboy, Lucky Koi, Immortal Romance;
- Jackpots: Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile, Fruit Fiesta;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat;
- Video Poker: Deuces Wild, Double Double Bonus Poker, Aces and Faces.
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).
You can also play the casino just while on the go, no problem. However, the selection of mobile games is a bit limited, and we can’t say that the mobile version works smoothly (we bet you are not surprised).
Bonuses and Promotions
As a new player, you will get a 100% match on your first deposit, up to €200. It comes with bearable wagering requirements - 50 times 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!
Besides, there is one interesting thing - the bonus calendar! Every day you get a 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.
