Gowin Casino Review
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 - all the pages are cluttered with walls of texts, the game lobby is separated from the main website, and there are some other flaws.
The bonus itself is completely fine, but its wagering requirements are bad, and we doubt that it’s easy to complete 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 the 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.
- License from the UK;
- Over 15 software providers;
- Live games available;
- Mobile friendly.
- 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 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, and long sheets of (mostly) useless text. 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.
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 mobile devices, 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).
Yup, their mobile version is really modern and nice. However, who said that this is the best mobile casino? Actually, we know who was that. As they say: “we are so damn cool and bla-bla… that’s why our players voted us the best mobile casino 2018”. Ah, of course, who else could do it?
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;
We’ve seen some rough terms and conditions, and these are close to them.
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;
Other promos change daily, feel free to check the promotions page.
