M88 Casino Review
Did you know that everything is better when performed by an Asian teenager? It applies to music, acrobatic tricks, martial arts and the online-casino design. M88 Casino is a kind of a website that is as appealing as a website could be. It’s smooth, modern, full of top-notch games, and it’s not for you. If you’re from the European area, most likely that your country is in the “restricted” list. Even if it isn’t - the Casino is pretty much oriented on Asian players. The currencies supported are geared towards the Asian market and Europeans can’t take part in the welcome bonuses at all. The website is fine, powered by such top-notch developers as Microgaming, Playtech, and Betsoft, which offer something around six hundred of fun and entertaining games. All games are separated by type, provider, and the planet of the Solar system (we dunno why, just because). There are many welcome bonuses, but all of them are temporary, so you’d better check the promotions section before depositing anything. At the time of writing, there were four welcome bonuses, all valid till November 15th. The one, related to slots is a 100% match bonus up to 2400 MYR (it’s Malaysian Ringgit. How can you not know that? It’s a basic stuff!) with 20x deposit + bonus wagering requirements.
- Cool and modern website;
- Multi-language customer support;
- Reputable software providers;
- SSL-encrypted transactions.
- The whole website, all promotions and banking options are focused on Asian users;
- Large list of restricted countries, including the U.S, France, and the UK.
Have you ever played in an Asian casino? We don’t think so, and we’re sure that this is not your chance to try one. M88 Casino is a decent place with lots of games and reputable software providers, but unfortunately, it isn’t available in most of the European countries and the US. M88 states that it’s a leading online casino and bookmaker in Asia, but unfortunately, we can't either approve nor refute this statement. The Casino operates under the licenses of First Cagayan and PAGCOR. We believe that you didn’t hear of these unless you’re from one of ASEAN countries, but the licenses seem reliable.
“GL/HF if you’re Asian, GTFO if you’re not. It’s that simple.”
When it comes to the website design and functionality - its daaaamn good. The overall theme is modest, the navigation is convenient, and there is a separate section for any case that you might want to read about. The only thing that might be considered as a drawback is that there’s too much information on your screen simultaneously.
Site security is the standard SSL encryption. The games are also tested, and the site has only the top their software providers who are regularly tested for fair play.
Customer Support: The Live chat is easily accessible as well as three separate emails for different purposes. If you have a Malaysian phone number, you can give them a call. (Otherwise, nope.) There is no information about Customer Support service working hours.
Banking: The payment options are mostly exotic (for a European customer). You can use bank transfer, and that’s pretty much all; other options are Online Pay, Mobile Pay SD and other local eWallets and banks. The pending time for all withdrawals is up to 48 hours.
Software and Game Variety
There is a ton of top providers here. They’ve got a section of their site dedicated just to Playtech stuff, and another casino section with Microgaming, Pragmatic, and iSoftBet Games among others. A lot of these slots are geared, once again, towards the Asian identity. You might not find your favorite slot, and instead of it, there will be something very similar about Shao Lin, or Thai Boxing, or some other Asian theme. The top-tier slots are still there, though.
- Slots: Moby Dick, Dragon Kingdom, East Wind Battle;
- Table/Card Games: Roulette, Pai Gow, Sic Bo, Hold’em, Baccarat, Blackjack;
- Video Poker: Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker;
- Specialty Games: Keno, Darts, Fruit Blast;
“There is a decent selection of games; they are logically filtered and easy to find.”
Mobile and Live Gaming
The mobile version is alive and well. As is usual, you’ll have a smaller selection of games to choose from, but they’ll be top picks that you most likely have wanted to play anyway. Consequently, you can download their mobile app as well and play the casino that way if you want.
Live games are available here, and the dealers are some of the hottest Asian girls we’ve ever seen. You can just watch them without betting and still have a good time. Not bad. Anyway, you can choose to play Sic Bo, Baccarat, or Roulette.
Bonuses and Promotions
Again, Europeans need not apply. You can’t take part in these promotions. Only players from Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia can grab these. Anyway, here it is: a 100% deposit match up to MYR 2400, with the WR’s from 12x to 20x D+B (depending on which games you play). This is a general offer, but there are also three other welcome bonuses: for keno and bingo, for sports and for playtech games only.
