Green Dog Casino Review
This one has pushed us into a deep cognitive dissonance. They are Green Dog Casino, right? Not freaking Yellow Dog! Why would they have a yellow dog for a logo? That’s just bananas! Preposterous! How can you possibly trust your money to people like this? Anyway, the casino is average - good slots (from IGT, Nextgen and other providers), terrible choice of casino games and nice website. The welcome package looks cool (up to €500 plus 100 spins), but you will have to wager your deposit and bonus 30 times. Besides, some of their terms are as confusing as their logo. For instance, they say that Nektan has the right to impose “reasonable administrative charges” on your account in case it gets dormant. And guess what? They don’t clarify what they mean by these “reasonable charges”.
- License from the UK;
- 8 language options;
- Mobile friendly;
- Live games.
- Lame wagering requirement: 30xD+B;
- Winnings from the bonus are capped at 4 times the bonus;
- The maximum payout is €250,000 (jackpots are excluded from this clause).
Green Dog Casino opened in 2016. It is operated by Nektan Limited, and licensed by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission.
The website looks alright, although a bit simplistic. We’ll take that over a bright and flashy monstrosity anytime though. Also, maybe we suddenly went color-blind or something, but their mascot is a cute yellow puppy. Doesn't make much sense, if you ask us, but whatever.

Customer Support: Support options include the live chat, email, and phone, however, the agents are not available round the clock. They work from 08:00 to midnight BST.
Banking: The banking options are standard - Visa/Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, and several more. You can request one withdrawal per day, and the maximum amount you can get is €2000. The monthly limit is €5000. It takes the casino up to 72 hours to deal with your withdrawals. Besides, Nektan reserves the right to pay out progressive winnings in installments. So, it may take you up to 12 months to get your jackpot. By the way, the maximum payout is €250,000, however this term explicitly excludes progressive jackpots. Thanks for that at least.
Software and Game Variety
Green Dog Casino offers games from numerous developers, including, but not limited to Netent, Microgaming, ELK, IGT, and Nextgen. They also offer several exclusive titles from Nektan. Overall there are about 300 games in the library. Here are some of them:
- Slots: Starburst, Thunderstruck, Route 777;
- Jackpots: Divine Fortune, Star Lanterns, Cleopatra;
- Casino games: Blackjack, Pontoon, Texas Hold’em;
- Instant win games: Medusa Scratch, Oil Mania Scratch, Diamond Deal.
Mobile and Live Games
The mobile casino works great, just as you’d expect it to. Green Dog flawlessly supports all modern smartphones and tablets.
Live dealer games are stuffed in the general casino games tab, like it’s something to be ashamed of. Anyway, here you have only Roulette and Blackjack.
Bonuses and Promotions
At Green Dog Casino you get bonuses on the first three deposits. This is how it works:
- The first deposit: a 100% match up to €100 plus 10 spins;
- The second deposit: a 100% match up to €150 plus 25 spins;

“At Green Dog Casino you get bonuses on the first three deposits - up to €500 in total plus 100 spins”.
Of course, there’s a bunch of terms and conditions that make it that much worse than it looks. The wagering requirements are 30 times the bonus plus deposit, wagers on roulette and blackjack don’t count, the bonus can’t be used to play certain slots, and the sucker punch - the winnings from the bonus are capped at 4 times the bonus.
Check out other promos too, they change monthly.
