Maria Casino Review
Maria Casino sounds like a typical title for a Brazilian TV-show, but you won’t find there any intrigues, love triangles or what else those TV-shows usually have - we have no idea, we don’t watch them. But there is a redhead on the main page (probably Maria?) who offers you over 600 games from NetEnt, Microgaming, and some other providers. Her welcome bonus doesn’t look really generous since it’s a 50% match up to €50, but the wagering requirement is fair - 40 times the bonus.
Maria also has plenty of other strengths: for instance, she is mobile friendly, and other portals think she is a nice person to meet. But nobody’s perfect, and Maria is not an exception - video poker and table games contribute only 10% to that wagering requirement.

Operated by Unibet International Ltd and licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission, Maria Casino has made some pretty big waves since their inception in 2007. This is in large part due to their choice of software providers and the way they handle their customers. In fact, you’ll be hard pressed to really find any truly negative feedback or horror stories about this casino. They are known to even answer their e-mails in a timely fashion - what a concept!
The website looks pretty cool. The “coolness” comes mostly from its well-planned layout, and convenient game lobby. If fact, you can even customize the lobby to make it show the games you prefer first. By default, they have standard game type categories, and you can enable additional ones (like Fantasy, Film & TV, Classic slots, Netent Slots) in the settings, and sort them however you like.
Customer Support: The support team is ready to answer your questions through email, live chat, and phone. The English speaking live chat is open 24/7, while the Swedish one - from 08:00 to 00:00. Email support works from 10:00 to 00:00, and the phone line is open from 13:00 to 21:00.
Banking: The banking is standard, and the list of payment methods includes several popular options like Skrill, Neteller, credit cards, Paysafecard, and more. The coolest thing is that there is no monthly withdrawal limit.
Software and Game Variety
Maria Casino is primarily a Net Entertainment casino, which is fine as you know right off the bat that you’ll be able to play some great games. Just as well, you’ll find contributions from IGT, Microgaming, Random Logic, Play’n Go, Quickspin, and more.
The collection is awesome, with over 600 games in total:
- Slots: Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Mega Moolah;

- Table games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat;
- Video poker: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, All American Double Up;

- Bingo: Wild One, King Stones, Money Mansion.
In terms of games, they have everything you could ask for.
Mobile and Live Gaming
If you’re pretty much living on your smartphone, Maria Casino has got you covered. Their website is very mobile responsive and the game selection for their mobile casino is appropriate. As usual, there will be a larger selection of online slots, but you will find a couple options for table games to play.
A robust selection of live dealer games is present there. You have the following to choose from: Baccarat, Caribbean Stud Poker, Casino Hold’em, etc.
Bonuses and Promotions
The wagering requirement for the welcome bonus is surprisingly okay - 40 times the bonus.
Maria Casino doesn’t offer a really impressive welcome promotion - it’s a 50% bonus up to €50. In order to get this bonus, you have to deposit at least €10. The wagering requirement is more or less fine - 40 times the bonus amount. Yeah, everything looks simple, but please, read terms and conditions carefully. The welcome bonus may depend on your country of residence.
