NettiArpa Casino Review
NettiArpa means “online lottery” or “online jackpot” in Finnish. We would’ve messed with such casino name if it were in English, but in this case, we can't say anything, as we’ve never seen a casino with a similar name before. NettiArpa Casino is a cool gambling venue for Finnish players and admirers of the elven language. It’s owned by AspireGlobal, so you better expect some messed-up stuff about their WR’s. Solid Maltese license ensures that all complaints will be properly regulated.
The game library is unique in its structure: they have only 50% of slots, and the other games are mostly scratch cards, with rare pieces of card games. The overall number is about 250, from Microgaming, Play n’GO, NetEnt, Elk and some others. The welcome bonus looks good: it’s a 100% match up to €500 with the 35xB wagering requirements. Unfortunately, signature bullshit terms by Aspire Global make them a lot worse, so you better check the full review before claiming that bonus. The casino itself looks interesting, but the lack of other languages except Finnish makes it a bit difficult to use for non-Finnish speakers.
- Lots of banking options;
- Licensed by the MGA;
- Phone support;
- Huge choice of non-slot games.
- No languages except Finnish;
- No 24/7 support;
- BS bonus terms.
NettiArpa Casino was established in 2009. It is regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority. The casino holds a certificate issued by iTech Labs, so you have no reason to doubt the fairness of the games. The Aspire Global’s ownership makes things look not so good, but their bullshit terms are only about bonuses.
The website looks clean and nice, but there is a faint scent of outdatedness. We couldn’t figure it out for a few minutes but then got it: the website covers only a half of the screen - all other space is empty, and these guys haven’t troubled themselves to put something there, or to make a site itself a bit wider. It’s a wide-screen era, guys, time to update your design!
“The website looks clean and nice, but there is a faint scent of outdatedness.”
The website’s available only in Finnish but if you really want to play there - just use Chrome and it will auto-translate the page. It seems that if these guys haven’t added other languages for eight years - they aren’t going to do it now.
Customer Support: There are a lot of ways to contact the support team - the live chat, phone, email or even fax! You can reach them every day, but only from 07:00 to 00:00.
Banking: The Banking options are abundant: they have most basic variants, such as Neteller, Skrill, bank transfer, credit cards, and lots of exotic Scandinavian methods options: Nordea, S-Pankki, Danske Bank, etc. Withdrawal time-frame is up to 24 hours for e-wallets and 4-5 days for Credit Cards.
Software and Game Variety
NettiArpa Casino provides games developed by NetEnt, Play’n Go, Microgaming and some other companies. In general, it offers more than 250 games. They don’t follow a regular online casino pattern and provide more than 50% of non-slot games such as keno, bingo, scratch cards and card games.
- Slots: Gonzo’s Quest, Divine Fortune, Wizard of Gems;
- Table/Card Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Solitaire;
- Video Poker: Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker;

Mobile and Live Gaming
NettiArpa Casino can be played on the go, but remember, that you won’t be able to enjoy all the games. The mobile version of the website offers only somewhere around 50 games.
Live games are available too, but the selection could be better. The website offers only Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette.
Bonuses and Promotions
“Right after you register at NettiArpa Casino, you receive €5”.
They say this “bonus has no requirements”, and you can use it for playing any game. It’s not really clear whether they meant that it has no wagering requirements attached, so you’d better check the terms yourself if you know Finnish.
The first deposit can bring you a 100% bonus up to €500. The minimum amount of deposit is €10. The wagering requirement is 35 times the bonus amount, which is not a pain in the ass. Apart from this, the casino offers a VIP program, so don’t forget to check it in case you decide to register.
Before claiming this bonus, you should know something about Aspire Global casinos. All of them, including NettiArpa Casino, have tricky terms about wagering contributions of games. Long story short: most of the games available are contributing only 50% of wagers towards the WR, and there is no list of games that contribute in full: you have to search for them on your own. We consider this method unfair. You’re warned now.
