Megascratch Casino Review
We are true fans of Mega Shark and Mega Piranha movies so that we thought that Megascratch Casino would be as funny and entertaining as those films about giant killing creatures. Well, we were disappointed. There are no sharks or piranhas, only a bit more than 300 online titles from NetEnt and some other developers.
The welcome package seemed to be exciting since we found out that you could get a 100% bonus up to €200 plus some spins, while the wagering requirement was only 35 times the bonus. But then we discovered that there were a lot of titles that contributed only 50% or even 0% to the wagering requirements!
At least the library includes some live games, and you can play this casino on the go. We know that this is a little consolation, but still...
- Licensed by Malta and the UK;
- 5 languages;
- Certificate from iTech Labs;
- Mobile friendly;
- Live games.
- Poor selection of video poker games;
- No 24/7 support service;
- Many titles only contribute 50% or 0% to the playthrough requirements.
Megascratch was launched in 2010. It is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Surprisingly, the website looks good. There is nothing special about its design, but the site is tidy, and the navigation is fine. There are 5 languages, which is also cool.
To protect your data, the online site uses SSL encryption. Well, nothing unusual, but the main thing is that this protection works. Here is one more good piece of news - the casino holds a certificate from iTech Labs.
The support service is offered from 08:00 to 01:00 CET.
Customer support: The support team works from 08:00 to 01:00 CET. You can reach them via live chat or email. We tried the chat and got a reply in a second. Apart from this, you can also use a pretty exhaustive FAQ section.
Banking: The list of banking methods is okay: Skrill, Neteller, wire transfer, credit and debit cards, and so on. Withdrawals remain pending for 48 hours.
The maximum amount you can withdraw per month is €7,000, but this limit will get higher after you reach VIP Platinum level. This rule also applies to jackpot winnings. Besides, keep in mind that in order to withdraw you must make at least one deposit.
Software and Game Variety
Megascratch cooperates with Microgaming, NetEnt, and some other developers. There are over 300 titles in total, and here are some of them:
- Slots: Starburst, Game of Thrones, Thunderstruck II;
- Table games: Blackjack, European Roulette, Roulette Pro;
- Video poker: Joker Poker, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better;
- Scratch cards: Hit the Bank, Ocean Pearls, Power Cash.
The overall selection looks good, but the variety of video poker games to play is very limited. Actually, we have mentioned all the titles.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Megascratch mobile is available whenever and wherever you want - you can easily access it from your tablet or smartphone. An application is not essential, just play via your mobile browser.
Live games are available, but their selection is not very impressive - you can try only variations of Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat.
Bonuses and Promotions
As a newcomer, you can get a deposit bonus and some free spins:
- The first deposit - a 100% bonus up to €200 plus 20 spins. The minimum deposit is €10. The wagering requirement is 35 times the bonus;
- Deposit at least €20 on the second day, and get 40 more spins. The winnings must be wagered 35 times;
- The bonus you can get on the third day is just the same as the second-day bonus.
There are too many games which contribute only 50% or even 0% to the wagering requirements.
The welcome package looks amazing, but we have found a very interesting thing in its terms and conditions. The problem is that there are a lot of titles which contribute only 50% to the playthrough requirements. Some of them (and this list is rather long) don’t contribute at all!
What is worse, they don’t even specify which online games contribute 100% - they just say something like “these games count 100%”. So you have to check every single game instead of having fun. At least it’s better than a sticky bonus like at 10Bet Casino.
