Reel Island Casino Review
We’ve seen a lot of movies, so we know that islands are not always cool and safe places. Have you seen “Shutter Island”? Or “The Island of Dr. Moreau”? Then you know what we are talking about. So, is Reel Island Casino a dangerous place too? Or is it full of fun and treasures? Well, they offer a nice selection of games (from Microgaming, NetEnt and other companies), provide 24/7 customer service and have a nice reputation among other watchdog portals. Unfortunately, we have managed to find one beast on this island. It’s called “Awful welcome bonus conditions” - the wagering requirements for the welcome package up to €700 are too high (35xD+B).
- Licences from Malta and the UK;
- Good reputation among other portals;
- 5 languages;
- 24/7 live chat;
- Live games;
- Mobile friendly.
- Shitty wagering requirement: 35xD+B;
- Deposits made via Neteller or Skrill do not trigger the welcome bonus.
Reel Island Casino was launched in 2015. It is controlled by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. The website is tidy and convenient. They even have a section with tips on how to play their casino. How caring! Besides, the site is available in 5 languages. For your safety, Reel Island has implemented the industry standard SSL encryption, keeping all of your private information secure. They are also independently audited for fairness by iTech Labs and GLI.
Customer Support: The support agents are at your service at any time, and you can contact them via live chat or email. We haven’t tried email, but the live chat agents are very fast and helpful. There is also FAQ, but it answers only 3 questions. Come on, guys, that’s not even funny!
“The maximum payout you can get is €250000”.
Banking: The list of banking options is pretty long. It includes Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, Visa, MasterCard and some other methods. Withdrawals remain pending for 48 hours. The maximum payout you can get is €250000, but this doesn’t refer to progressive winnings. Just remember, that if you win a jackpot in excess of this amount, it may take up to 30 days for a casino to pay it out.

“You will have to wager your deposit and bonus 35 times”.
Sounds cool, but the conditions suck. The wagering requirement is 35 times the bonus and the deposit. The same thing refers to the spins. The maximum bet allowed is €5. Besides, you have no right to get the welcome bonus if you deposit via Skrill or Neteller.
