Fly Casino Review
Fly Casino will definitely make you fly when you see their great selection of Playtech Games. But a bit later, you’ll feel like Constantine when he was banished from the heaven; like Icarus when his wings began to melt; like Maleficent when her wings were stolen. You get the idea. The reasons for this are a poor instant-play mode, the absence of mobile games, and sticky three-tier Welcome Bonus, which is worth up to €526 in total. Other than that, the casino alright - the website is fine, so are the games, the banking options and reputation.
- 33 awards;
- Wide selection of withdrawal options;
- Great choice of Playtech games;
- Live games available;
- Limited support working hours;
- No mobile games so far;
- The Welcome Bonus is sticky.
Fly Casino opened in 2013 and has earned a solid reputation over these few years. It is operates under the jurisdiction of Curacao, proven safe and fair by TST (an independent auditor), and claims to have won 33 awards of one sort or another.
“Fly Casino claims to have won 33 awards of one sort or another over the years.”
The casino’s website is alright, with all the tabs and game categories in their places. The only downside is that you can’t try out their games before you open an account.
Banking: The list of withdrawal methods is really wide and includes popular international payment methods along with local ones. You’ll see Skrill, Neteller, credit cards, Webmoney, Giropay, Ukash and many more. Some of the methods seems to be no longer operational (like MyCitadel), so it would be nice of them to update the page accordingly.
Customer Support: The customer support is available through the email, phone (24/7) and live chat. However, the working hours of the latter are limited - from 12pm to 2am GMT.
Software and Game Variety
Fly is a Playtech casino, and that means hundreds of games, branded slots and enormous jackpots. Overall, the library counts about 200 games, however you’ll have to download and install a piece of software on your PC to get access to all those. Speaking of slots, this section is the largest. By the way, we were not kidding about the enormous jackpots. The total jackpots counter on the website is currently at €80 million, believe it or not. So, let’s get to the point and look at some of their games:
- Slots: King Kong, Iron Man, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Rocky, The Mummy;
- Jackpots: Jackpot Giant, Age of Gods, Beach Life;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps;
- Video Poker: Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, All American, Aces & Faces.
Mobile and Live Games
When you open Fly Casino on your mobile device, it kindly notifies you that they don’t have any mobile games at the moment and directs you to a sister casino. Too bad, but we hope that “at the moment” is the key phrase and they’ll add adapted games some time soon.
Live games are there though. The list is pretty standard: Baccarat, Blackjack, Hold’em, Roulette and Hi-Lo.
Bonuses and Promotions
As a new player, you get bonuses on first three deposits. The amounts and percentages are as follows:
- First deposit: 110% match up to €110;
- Second deposit: 50% match up to €250;
- Third deposit: 150%-100% up to €50-166, depending on the amount you deposit.
Wagering requirements also differ - x20, x15 and x25 times the bonus plus deposit amounts respectively.
Seemingly not too bad, there’s one thing that spoils it completely: the bonus is phantom - it can’t be withdrawn, and the initial bonus amount will be deducted from you balance upon withdrawal.
“Seemingly not too bad, there’s one thing that spoils the welcome package completely: the bonuses are phantom and can’t be withdrawn.”
There’s also a no-deposit bonus that you can get right after registering - €10 and 10 free spins on Jungle Trouble slot. These are naturally more restrictive and carry x50 and x30 wagering requirements on cash and free spins respectively.
The only requirement that doesn’t change depending on the bonus type is the maximum allowed bet - €6.
If you’re looking for some VIP benefits, you’ll find them in abundance here. The VIP club is divided into four levels and each next one adds extra stuff. Besides pretty standard ones (special promos, birthday offers, better comp points rates etc.) you’ll be getting tickets for live events, vacation and travel packages, spa days out, no fee express cashouts and so on.
Check out other promos at the Promotions page as well, there’s quite a few of them.
