ShadowBet Casino Review
ShadowBet Casino is one of those few online casinos that have “bet” in the name but do not offer any sports betting options on their website. Maybe they are hidden somewhere among the shadows, so that no one can see them. Anyway, we are here to reveal to you all of the secrets of their casino, so let’s do it!
ShadowBet Casino does offer a decent game collection, that is powered by several top-notch providers, including NetEnt, Microgaming, and IGT. Sounds great! If only the navigation was convenient… They also kindly explain to you all of the deposit and withdrawal rules, but they do not want to tell you a lot about the online support service.
If you can not imagine playing at ShadowBet without bonuses, then we bet you’ll be disappointed when get to their Welcome Bonus. It doubles your first deposit up to €100 and gives you 200 free spins on top of that. However, the wagering requirements are more scary than the shadows - 35xB+D.
Anyway, let's dive into this and add our article to the plethora of other ShadowBet reviews! (Ours will be funnier, though!)

ShadowBet was launched in 2016. It is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority. They have no issues with fairness and security – your data is protected with SSL encryption, so that no one can steal it. Just check the list of their restricted countries before registering, as it includes over 150 territories. If you are not on the list, consider yourself a Master of Luck.
Let’s have a closer look at the website itself. First of all, if you are a timid guy, you have to be warned about seeing different shadows on their pages. Otherwise, the site looks modern and stylish. You can find provider badges on the bottom of the main page and choose one of 14 language options, which include English, German, Mexican, Spanish, Brazilian, Swedish, and others.

Support Service: When it comes to their support service, things are getting shady. They let you know that you can contact them via live chat and email, but they do not specify their working hours, which is pretty weird. Not to mention that there is no “FAQ” on the website.
Banking: Thankfully, they provide you with all the important information about their banking. You will have several methods of withdrawing funds: Visa, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, EcoPayz, and Bank Wire. We were surprised, but your withdrawal requests will be processed instantly in most cases. Moreover, the payout limit is much higher than on most websites – you can withdraw up to €5,000 per transaction (Paysafecard is an exception - €200).
Software and Game Variety
As you might have seen, ShadowBet Casino is powered by 12 software developers. You will find here many online games from such industry-leading companies as NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT, as well as from some less-known providers – Edict and Genii. If you are hunting for a diverse game library, then you are in the right place. The only game type that lacks in quantity is video poker. Let’s have a look at some of their game titles:
- Slots: Starburst, Lost Vegas, Gonzo’s Quest, Twin Spin, Foxin Wins;
- Jackpot Games: Mega Moolah, Fruit Fiesta, King Cashalot, Fruit Fiesta;
- Table Games: Pontoon, Blackjack, Roulette, Punto Banco, Baccarat;
- Video Poker: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild;
- Other Games: Electro Bingo, Germinator, Hole in One.
It seems that the developers weren’t trying hard to make their game lobby easy-to-use. The online games are simply filtered by type and there’s a search bar hidden in the upper right corner.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Most of the games offered at ShadowBet Casino can be played on mobile devices. If you prefer playing on the go, you’re welcome. The ShadowBet mobile casino looks modern and offers many gaming options.
Playing with live dealers is really exciting and entertaining. Thankfully, you will have many live gaming choices. As we expected, ShadowBet features the different variations of Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat.
Bonuses and Promotions
Though the Welcome Bonus banner is full of shadows, all the terms are not shady but clearly explained. Your first three deposits can bring you up to €1,000 and 200 free spins in total. The first deposit will be doubled up to €100. You will get 20 free spins immediately and 180 spins over the next 9 days. The second deposit gives you a 50% bonus up to €400. The third one - a 25% bonus up to €500.

As we said, the bonus terms aren’t shady… they are a poop filled diaper! You will have to wager the sum of the deposit and bonus 35 times. The free spins go with the same requirements and can be used on the following slot games: Wild Wild West, Starburst, Aloha, and Pyramid. If you are used to playing as a high-roller, you will have to slow down a bit, as the maximum allowed bet while playing with the bonus funds in only €7.50. The free spins winnings are credited as bonus funds and have to be wagered 35 times.
Players from the UK get a slightly different offer. There are no bonuses for the second and third deposits, only the first one is matched up to £100. The wagering requirements are the same - 35 times the amount of deposit plus bonus. The 200 spins are also here, and this is where it gets better. For the UK players, they come wager-free!
