Quartz Casino Review
Quartz Casino is a rock-solid (no pun intended) place to play casino games. It’s just that there are too many similar rocks on the shore. Page-proof problems and improper spelling - that’s two things being honored here at Quartz Casino. They have about three hundred games from NextGen, Microgaming, and Quickspin.
The Welcome Offer (100% match bonus up to €200) looks fine from the first glance, but if you dig deeper, you’ll find the 50x bonus wagering requirements and a crappy clause about some countries for which the WR are doubled. From one point of view these guys are greedy as hell, and from another point - they want to invest as less as possible. This results in ridiculous mistakes that are spoiling the overall impression. Get an editor, guys. Seriously.
- Decent choice of slots;
- Well-known software providers;
- One girl per each website section (Except Live Casino, this one has three girls);
- Asking you to come back each time you switch the browser tab.
- UK license.
- Horrible misspellings and page-proof problems;
- Tricky terms of the Welcome Bonus wagering;
- Predatory dormancy clause for United Kingdom residents.
Quartz casino was founded not so long ago in 2012. No wonder the website looks and feels quite modern. An animated background with a time-lapse effect and parallax scrolling hasn’t gotten old. Almost there, but not yet. The website isn’t really old, but old enough to correct those stupid misspellings that are appearing everywhere.
The casino is licensed by UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming authority.
Customer Support: Customer support is available through live chat and email. The casino doesn’t offer its assistance via phone but gives you an opportunity to contact the agents around the clock.
Banking: The withdrawal (as well as the deposit) methods are abundant here, at Quartz Casino. They have credit/debit cards, bank transfer, QIWI, WebMoney, Neteller, Euteller, Skrill and some other options. The major drawback is that all withdrawals are subject to 72-hours pending period (24 hours for Swedish players) and 24-hours processing before they’ll send it to your payment provider. After that, transfer time varies from 1-2 days for e-wallets to 4-10 days for bank transfer.
Software and Game Variety
Quartz Casino offers games from several popular software developers. These include Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming and more. There’s no client to download (good riddance), all the games run instantly in the browser.

There are only a few video poker titles, so the casino decided to put them in the same section with table games. It’s definitely a way out, but not the desirable onle. Adding more video poker games is not an option, huh? Quartz Casino Progressive games are represented by NetEnt’s and Microgaming’s networks. While offering 5-digit jackpots, these are not the most prominent titles (*ahem* Mega Moolah *ahem*). All in all, let’s take a look at the available games:
- Slots: Halloween, Ted, Jurassic World;
- Table Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat;
- Video Poker: Double Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild, Louisiana Double Poker;
- Jackpot Games: Divine Fortune, Treasure Nile, Chilli Gold;
- Other Games: Lotto, Keno, Diamond Deal;
Mobile and Live Games
Quartz casino supports all modern mobile devices. The games work in a mobile browser, without any apps to download.
Live games are there as well. All of them. The page proudly states “Live HD Casino. Play All your favourite games”. Then you scroll down and see baccarat, blackjack, and roulette. One each. We get it, “Play THREE of your favourite games” wouldn’t sound so impressive, and it does cover 90% of what people play, but come on, “All”?
Bonuses and Promotions
Another quote from the website: “Here at Glimmer Casino, you’ll definitely find that our promotions are the best around!”. Wait, what? You are Quartz, not Glimmer! Hear that?
Wait, what? You are Quartz, not Glimmer! Hear that?.
The promotions themselves are alright though. You get your straightforward welcome bonus matching your first deposit (up to $200). The catch though is that it is subject to x50 wagering requirements. A bit too much, if you ask us, but it’s only the beginning! For members located in certain jurisdictions, the Deposit Bonuses may be cashed out only after an amount totaling no less than 100 times the Deposit bonus has been wagered. (sic!) Do you know from which country you are playing? Quartz Casino knows it too, and they’ll use it against you! The wagering requirements for the UK players aren’t specified either, despite the UKGC license the casino has. All the available information is that the bonus terms for them remain the same.
Here we have to use another quote. “Get Exclusive. With our VIP programme”. Fine, We are sold, see ya. Gonna go get ourselves exclusive without this crap.
The programme is rather standard. Play more, get points, grow through ranks, earn extra rewards. Nothing to write home about.
Other promos include occasional weekly and daily bonuses, cashback on particular games, and happy hours. Be sure to visit promotions page for more details.
