Go win somewhere else

Go win you say? It’s a bit too pretentious for an average casino. It’s not even THAT good in what it claims to be its forte (mobile gaming). The website is very weird, and when we say very, we wean that it’s goddamn confusing. The front page is of a different design than all other pages, navigation is inconvenient, and there are other flaws.

The bonus itself is completely fine, but its WR’s are bad, and we doubt that someone ever completed them. You’ll get a 200% match bonus up to €100 on your first deposit and will have to wager it 30 times the deposit plus bonus amount. Not to mention, your winnings from the Welcome Bonus are limited to 4x the bonus value. Still, these guys have games from 15 software providers including NetEnt, Microgaming, and NextGen. Though the choice is not too wide, the quality of games is decent. This casino surely needs some work to do, but you can play there if you’re not afraid to get lost on their strange website.

Pros

  • License from the UK;
  • Over 15 software providers;
  • Live games available;
  • Mobile friendly.

Cons

  • Weird website design and interface;
  • Limited working hours of the support service;
  • The Welcome Bonus carries several annoying wagering requirements.

Gowin casino was founded in 2016. It is powered by Nektan platform and regulated by both the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. It claims to have been launched to give mobile and tablet players the time of their lives, but we’ll get to that a bit later.

The desktop website looks weird, with tiny menus, huge promotional images, long sheets of (mostly) useless text and a clumsy carrousel of game images (in different proportions and resolutions). Let’s just say we’ve seen better. No, that’s hardly correct. Let’s say instead that a blind granny could design better. That’s more like it.

“The first thing you see when you open the Games section is... the list of other casinos to play at. Whaaat?”

The first thing you see when you open the Games section is... the list of other casinos to play at. We get it, those are probably the casinos from the same network but come on. It’s like bringing friends to help you over on the wedding night. Have some self-respect. The actual list of games is slightly below that, and when you click one of them everything changes.

When you click “Play Now”, you will find yourself in a game lobby, on a completely different website that looks far better. Not particularly stunning, but alright. Everything we say from this point on refers to this second (“real”) website.

Customer Support: The support service is offered through live chat, email and phone number. However, their working hours are limited: from 9:00 through midnight on business days. Also, you can follow the casino on Twitter and Facebook.

Banking: To withdraw your funds you can use such withdrawal options as Visa/MasterCard credits cards, Skrill, and Ukash. Your daily withdrawal limit varies depending on the payout option you choose. But overall, it’s ok - you can withdraw up to €10,000 per day. The only doubtful thing we found in their T&Cs is that they won’t pay you more than €250,000 on a single game. Meaning that if you’re exceptionally lucky - you’re equally exceptionally screwed. At least progressive jackpots are explicitly excluded from this limit.

Software and Game Variety

Gowin Casino features a decent collection of casino games from multiple developers: NetEnt, NextGen, ELK Studios, Microgaming, NYX, IGT and more. As usual, slots are the most diverse. Funny enough, there’s no actual category for slots on the website, so you’ll have to look for your favourite games in the All Games section (or use a search bar). Anyway, we’ll help you take a closer look at their games library.

  • Slots: Dracula, Starburst, Avalon, Foxin Wins, Wild Wild West;
  • Jackpots: Mega Jackpots, Divine Fortune, The Pig Wizard;
  • Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Texas Hold’em, Pai Gow;
  • Exclusives: Candy Swap, Best of British, Magic Touch.

Pay attention; we haven’t mentioned video poker titles. Why? Just because they don’t have any.

Mobile and Live Games

When you open the mobile version of the website it all starts to make sense. All those huge images and ugly carrousels from the first website look fine on mobiles, as well as the game lobby. You are free to either play all the games right there in your mobile browser or download a mobile app (iOS only).

Live dealer games are hidden in the general Casino games section, apparently not worthy of a separate one. It does make the section look twice as large though, with live Roulette and Blackjack to accompany the “dead” ones. Good decision (not really).

Bonuses and Promotions

The Welcome Package for new players offers up to €850 in bonuses.

  • 200% match bonus up to €100 on the first deposit (+50 free spins on Starburst);
  • 100% match up to €250 on the second one;
  • 50% match up to €500 on the third one;

Looks good, right? Sure, till you read terms and conditions. We’ll just leave some of the highlights here (be sure to check the full version):

  • The maximum bonus amount, that can be converted into real cash - 4x the bonus value;
  • The Welcome Bonus funds must be wagered 30 times the deposit plus bonus amount, and the free spins winnings must also be wagered 30 times
  • Only the bets made with bonus funds count towards the wagering requirements, while the real cash will be deducted from your balance first;

“We’ve seen some rough terms and conditions, and these are close to them.”

Other promos change daily, feel free to check the promotions page.

Our Opinion

Let’s start with good things: the slots selection is nice, and they have both the app and the mobile website. Now that we’re all done with the good things let’s move on to where they completely screwed up. They have a weird website(s) with inconvenient navigation, good welcome bonus with outrageous terms (which is far worse than just an average bonus, if you ask us), few table games, no video poker. If you just want to play nice slots and you don’t care about other things - this casino might suit you.
