Fantasino Casino Review
Fantasino Casino is cool. Even though it's not even a year old, we can see it becoming one of the better casino out there. If nothing goes wrong that is. The only problem we currently have with it is the welcome bonus - the wagering requirements are kinda high, and the bonus amounts and percentages are not really generous. Everything else is a blast, and the Fantasy World is a truly unique experience. Go evolve your Trebol.
Fantasino Casino is brand new. It opened in 2017 in partnership with EveryMatrix, holds licensed from Malta Gaming Authority, the UK Gambling Commission, and Curacao, boasts numerous “seals of approval” from casino review portals, and the website is heavily gamified. We’ll talk more about that in the Promotions section.
“The casino looks cool and bright, with several cute (albeit a bit dopey) mascots, cartoonish menu icons, and convenient navigation in the lobby.”
The game lobby has handy filters by software, and you can split your screen to launch two or four games side by side. Neat. The FAQ section is reasonably helpful (in most cases).
Probably the only thing the FAQ doesn’t show is the list of banking options. You’ll only see them in the cashier when you’re about to deposit. The options themselves are good enough - Visa/Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, ecoPayz, and a couple more. We couldn’t find any bullshit terms attached to withdrawals - the monthly limit is €20k (does not apply to progressive jackpot wins), there are no fees, no pending time, and the processing time is 24 hours.
The only two ways to contact the support is live chat and email. Luckily, the chat operators are available 24/7.
Software and Game Variety
True to its name, Fantasino Casino has a fantastic game collection. Not only it’s massive (over 1000 titles), it’s also powered by over 20 software developers, both popular (Netent, NYX, Playson, Play’n Go) and not so much (Mr Slotty, Spigo, OMI, JoinGames).
The slots section is nothing short of fantastic (we realize we’re using the word too much, but there’s nothing we can do). Some games might have heard of - Blood Suckers, Starburst, Big Bad Wolf, Dracula’s Family), others will probably be new to you - The Mad Hatter, Jugglenaut, Meme Faces, Exploding Pirates, and many more. Progressive slots are mostly from Netent, with famous titles like Hall of Gods, Arabian Nights, and Mega Fortune.
The table games section looks like every developer has thrown in all they have. The games are mostly the same - roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps, casino poker, video poker - but they come in so many forms, shapes and variations, that it almost feels like too much. Except that there’s no such thing as “too much” when it comes to variety.
Mobile and Live Games
As expected, the website works flawlessly on mobile devices right in the browser. It’s smooth and easy to browse through, and the games are just as numerous as on desktop.
Live casino tab lists games from several platforms - Evolution Gaming, Lucky Streak, and BetGames. Choose whichever table you like out of dozens of baccarat, roulette, blackjack, and casino poker variations.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Bonus in Fantasino Casino is kinda underwhelming - on the first deposit you’ll get a 100% match bonus up to €50 (with a minimum qualifying deposit of €20). The bonuses on the following three deposits don’t help much - 50% up to €150, 25% up to €500, and 40 free spins on Aloha respectively. The wagering requirements are pretty high - 30 times the deposit plus bonus amount.
The most notable feature about Fantasino Casino is the Fantasy World - a game within a casino where you customize and upgrade your character (Trebol), complete quests and missions, earn Tokens by wagering, and exchange them for various rewards. The rewards are simple yet fun. For example, there’s a Shield that protects you (giving you 5% cashback for 24 hours) or Potions, that increase the Tokens accumulation rate.
Furthermore, you can even customize your casino interface with those Tokens, changing tables, slots appearance and so on. There are also amulets (achievements, basically), that you get by completing certain tasks.
