Flume Casino Review
We’ve reviewed so many Nektan casinos that we can navigate around their websites with our eyes closed! Okay-okay… half-closed. We are not psychics, after all. This casino didn’t impress us with something brand-new or something that could make them different from their sister-casinos. Oh, sorry, we lied… They specified the working hours of the support team. It seems we haven’t seen it at any Nektan casino before. Yep, that’s the real progress!
The game library is the strongest side of Flume Casino. It offers over 350 games from more than 20 software providers, including NetEnt, NextGen, Microgaming and many more. Speaking about their weakest point, there are plenty of drawbacks here, but their Welcome Bonus is probably the most disappointing one. You will get ridiculous 25 free spins on Starburst on your first deposit. Each of these is worth €0.1, and the winnings from them should be wagered 30 times.
- License from the UK;
- Over 20 software providers;
- Live games are here;
- Mobile compatibility.
- Limited support working hours;
- Low withdrawal limit - €5,000 per month;
- Poor Welcome Bonus.
Flume Casino is another baby of Nektan - a well-know gaming company, which produces online casinos like some printing machine. As all the casinos from this group, Flume Casino is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the government of Gibraltar. They are also protected with SSL encryption, which turns all the information you send to the casino into special codes.
If you have seen at least one Nektan-operated casino before, then you’ll feel a sence of deja-vu when you open Flume Casino. It has a simple interface, an eye-burning design, game thumbnails of low resolution - actually, nothing new for us. At least, their navigation is alright, as always.

Customer Support: Anyway, the developers managed to do one thing here they have never done before - they specified the working hours of the support service. Thank goodness! Finally, they did it! Cheers to that! So, their live chat and phone support are available between the hours of 08:00 and 00:00. Outside these hours, you can write them an email.
Banking: The list of the withdrawal options is rather diverse and includes Visa, Skrill, Neteller, SEPA, Paysafecard, Trustly, and Bank Wire. Not surprisingly, their withdrawal limits are too low. You are allowed to withdraw up to €2,000 per day and €5,000 per month. The jackpot winnings are excluded, but they are not paid instantly - you’ll get the full sum in a 12-month period. The withdrawal times will also disappoint you. It takes up to 72 hours for the withdrawal requests to be processed.
Software and Game Variety
The diversity of games is the thing we like Flume Casino for. Though the number of game titles is not that huge (around 370 of them), they are powered by 21 different software developers. The list includes Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, Nektan, IGT, and many others. The only game type is missing here is video poker.
As it was expected, the gamy lobby is easy to use. You can sort the games by type, provider, and even by the frequency of the winnings. If you are looking for a certain game title - a search bar to the rescue.
Here are some of the games the casino offers:
- Slots: Starburst, Foxin Wins, Twin Spin, Gonzo’s Quest, Action Bank;
- Jackpots: Golden Goddess, Jackpot Jester, Jungle Jackpots;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Oasis Poker, Pontoon;
- Instant-Win Games: Spin Lotto, Colour Cubes, Crossword Cash.
Mobile and Live Games
You can easily play all their games right on your smartphone or tablet, and by “all” we really mean every single game they have in the desktop version of the casino. Their mobile casino even seems to have better navigation. They even kindly show the number of titles in each category!

Live games are also available here. There are about 20 live gaming options provided by Evolution Gaming. Among these, you can find Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, Three Card Poker, and some others.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Offer at Flume Casino is almost useless. You will get 25 free spins on Starburst on your first deposit of €10 or higher. Yep, that’s cool that you can get the bonus for a €10 deposit, but each free spin is worth €0.1 only. In other words, they give you free spins, which are worth €2.5 in total.
The wagering requirements are standard - 30 times the bonus received - but they could make them somewhat lower, considering such a small bonus amount. Moreover, your winnings are limited to 4 times the bonus amount. Meh...
