Coral Casino Review
Coral Casino's website makes you wonder if they are an online casino, or if they are trying to sell you health insurance. We had some doubts, but awesome games from Playtech, Microgaming, NetEnt, and others gave it away soon enough - they are indeed a casino! With complete mobile compatibility too, and even a few titles with Live Dealers.
For a welcome you get several bonuses - one for the Live Casino (100% up to €100), and one for everything else (€50 for a €10 deposit). Surprisingly, but the wagering requirements are rather attractive too: 40 and 24 times the bonus respectively! There is even a welcome promotion for sports betting, but no spoilers - we will tell you more details later! So, they won't insure your life or house, but they can entertain you for a while. It may also be unresponsive to your complaints, if you have some, so be ready for that.

If the name rings a bell but you just couldn’t understand why, it’s because Coral Casino UK is connected to Gala Coral, which has nearly 20,000 employees in UK. This online site has built a reputation for having a huge library of popular games, relatively fast payouts, and for providing overall great service.
Customer Support: If players need help, they can contact the support team either via email or phone. Be advised, though, that things are even easier after players create an account - they will get access to the live chat. Personally, we think the live chat should be available to everyone, but this casino feels differently. They even didn’t specify their working hours, which is a bit strange too. Anyway, if you face a problem and it turns into a matter of life and death, and the support agents are as silent as the graves, check FAQ - it’s rather extensive.
Banking: There are a lot of banking methods to choose from: PayPal, Skrill, credit cards… Yeah, this place may seem to be not very welcoming for random guests (the live chat is only for the chosen ones), but it does everything to make you feel comfortable as soon as you register.
Games and Software Variety
Fully licensed by Gibraltar and the United Kingdom, they are making waves due in large part to its massive selection of gaming titles. You will see popular titles from IGT/Wagerworks, Playtech, Quickspin, Microgaming, Net Entertainment and OpenBet.. Here are some titles you can try there:
- Slots: Da Vinci Diamonds, Miss Fortune, Sugar Trail;
- Table games: Blackjack, Baccarat, Red Dog;
- Video poker: Aces and Faces, Jacks or Better, Tens or Better;
- Scratch cards games: Hat Tricks, Soccer Wives, Springtime;
- Arcade games: Rush Cars Go, Virtual Dogs, Pop Bingo;
- Lotteries: Daily Million, German Lotto, French Lotto;
- Sports betting.
One thing to point out also, is that you do have the option of downloading their casino app. Go ahead and do that because you’ll grab exclusive content and all of the games will run a bit faster.
Mobile and Live Gaming
You are completely safe when it comes to mobile gaming. They have put the work in and Android, Blackberry, iPad and iPhone are all compatible devices to game with. You’ll be happy to experience an interactive and fully featured mobile site.
The best card and slot options are available in the mobile version, giving you over 50 options to choose from. Not only that, but you can actually bet on sports and lottery from your mobile device as well.
“Coral Casino is a great choice in case you prefer playing on the go!”
They have five live games available: Roulette, Hi-Lo, Blackjack, Hold’Em, and Baccarat. You can even look at the name and photo of who the dealer will be for whichever table you choose from. Remember also that you can play live games from your mobile device as well!
Promotions and Bonuses
For the new player, you get a rather generous welcome bonus of €50 when you buy in with just €10! On the website, in fact, they joke about how easy it is that there isn’t even a 3rd step. Hard to argue with that! The wagering requirement is fine - 24 times the bonus amount.
The only thing to pay attention to is that this bonus won’t work with live games, which is why they’ve set up a separate Live Casino 100% Welcome Bonus up to €100! With this bonus, you log-in and buy in with €50 and - boom shakalaka - a €50 bonus instantly! You will have to wager this amount 40 times.
Do you prefer sports betting? Nice, they have a separate offer for you! You just place your bet (2.0 or greater), and receive a matched free bet up to €20.
There is also a pretty straightforward Comp Points system. You get Comp Points for every €10 staked. As soon as you collect 100 of them, you can get some money! For those very loyal VIP folks in the higher tiers, you’ll be looking at even better Comp Point rates.
“On top of all that, they even have a VIP Loyalty Scheme with various tiers”.
Apart from this, they offer some other bonuses, which may change from time to time. So don’t forget to check Promotions page regularly if you decide to create an account there.
