Marathonbet Casino Review
Marathonbet Casino lacks few crucial things to be really cool. They nail the game variety (30+ game providers, holy crap), the banking, and the support. However, they don't have any sort of welcome bonus whatsoever (which is better than a ridiculously crappy bonus with a million bullshit terms attached, if you ask us), and the mobile casino could be better.
Marathonbet is a huge bookmaker company established way back in 1997. You might have seen their logo on the shirts of Manchester United players. Yeah, they are that cool. They opened online casino not so long ago - in 2016, and it is licensed by the Government of Curacao.
The website looks pretty modern, with a completely instant play lobby, useful game categories, and extensive help section. It would have been nice to have some extra filters in the lobby, but maybe it’s just us.
The list of banking options is impressive, to say the least. You can choose your country and currency on the Payments page and see all the methods available to you. For Euros the list is huge - credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Bitcoin, Webmoney, and many more. Withdrawals for most e-wallets take up to 3 hours.
The support can be reached through live chat, phone and email 24/7.
“In our experience, the chat operators are polite and accurate, and answer pretty much instantly.”
Software and Game Variety
Marathonbet casino conveniently list its game providers in the help section, and the list is insane - over 30 entries. Alright, they might have messed it up a bit (e.g., we’re pretty sure DC Comics don’t develop slots themselves), but it’s still fantastic - Netent, Microgaming, Betsoft, Playson, Cryptologic, Nextgen, Quickspin, and many more. This total to over 700 games in the library.
The slots are predictably awesome and numerous. Cool slots (Slots Angels), funny slots (Wonky Wabbits), sexy slots (Playboy, Pin Up Girls), classic slots (Break da Bank), branded slots (Scarface, Terminator), newest slots (Fairy Gate, Emoticoins), jackpot slots (Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune) - you name it.
Table games section has what looks like all possible blackjack variations, baccarat, roulette, casino poker, and more. There’s also video poker, keno, scratch cards, lotto, and other games.
Mobile and Live Games
“Mobile version of Marathonbet Casino is... peculiar. It looks cool and is as convenient as taking a shit in a jumpsuit.”
Let us elaborate. All the categories (and all the games, once you enter a category) are arranged into one horizontal line, that you scroll through. The background is a night sky that scrolls too with a parallax effect (hence the “cool” part), but with that many games the scrolling takes ages, especially in the slots category. What’s worse is that you can’t even find a game you want - there’s no search in the mobile version.
Alternatively, they have mobile apps for both Android and iOS available, but those look exactly like the browser version.
Live casino is powered by Evolution Gaming, and has all the traditional games - roulette, casino poker, blackjack, and baccarat.
Bonuses and Promotions
There’s currently no welcome bonus for casino players at Marathonbet Casino. None at all. Not even a tiny one. Alright...
They do have some promos, such as weekly 10% live casino cashback, rebate rewards on slots, and 20 free spins for every €200 wagered on Fairy Gate slot. Still, we do hope they add a traditional welcome bonus some time soon.
