Villento Casino Review
Here's the hearty letter we "wrote" to Villento a while ago:
Dear Villento Casino. It’s time to move on, friend, it really is. Do some face-lifting (or rather full-on plastic surgery), meet some new, younger and prettier friends (NetEnt, Quickspin, Betsoft, and Playson, for instance, cause now you cooperate only with Microgaming and features about 550 games), get livelier, and don’t be such a cheapskate - and there might still be good times ahead. Furthermore, do something with that first deposit bonus wagering requirements - it’s 60 times the bonus amount, while the bonus itself is a 100% match up to £150! In everything else, you are a blast. Sincerely yours, HolyMoly.
Surprisingly enough, some of it has been heard! The website definitely looks prettier now, and there are live games aplenty. Way to go. Now, a decent welcome bonus and modern slots, please?
- Over 15 years of experience;
- Certificate from eCOGRA;
- Mobile friendly;
- 24/7 live chat.
- Support agents are as slow as a snail (but maybe it's just our luck);
- The first deposit bonus must be wagered 60 times.
Villento Casino UK was founded back in 2005. It is licensed by the UKGC, MGA, and Kahnawake Gaming Commission and approved by eCOGRA’s Safe and Fair seal. The website has recently received a face-lift and now looks more-or-less up to the modern standards.
It is hard to review the casinos like Villento. We know it used to be good. It might still be okay in fact, for those who didn’t see newer, prettier and more interesting casinos. It does some steps in the right direction, but we don't think it's enough just yet.
This casino used to be good, and it struggles to keep us with the times.
Customer Support: In case you need help, the casino has around-the-clock online customer support. Their agents can be reached via live chat and email. They also offer you to send them an email with your telephone number and full name, and after a few minutes they will call you back. We tried to get help from their live chat. And you know what? The question was really simple, but it took us about 20-30 minutes to get the answer. Just saying.
Banking: Banking methods are reasonably diverse: debit and credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, and more. Your withdrawals will remain pending for 2 business days. The withdrawal limit is £4,000 per week, but it only applies if you happen to withdraw five times more that you total deposits at once.
Software and Game Variety
They offer Microgaming games through a downloadable client or an instant-play lobby. Basically, if you’ve seen one Microgaming casino - you’ve seen them all. The total number of games is over 500, but most of them are really old. The instant play mode redirects you to a generic Microgaming platform (that perfectly matches the casino in the looks and age). Anyway, here are some games you can play here:
- Slots: Asian Beauty, 108 Heroes, Avalon;
- Progressives: Major Millions, Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile;
- Table Games: Classic Blackjack Gold, Euro Roulette, American roulette Gold;
- Video Poker: Aces and Eights, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild.
Villento Mobile and Live Games
It is surprising, but they do have a mobile version. It leads you to the very same generic platform by Microgaming, just on mobile. It works rather good, even better than the desktop version, so there's nothing to complain about.
This is an old-school casino that managed to provide some modern live games too.
The Live Casino section in the lobby features a rather diverse list of live dealers games - standard Baccarat, Roulette, and Blackjack, as well as more rare Sic Bo, Three Card Poker, and Caribbean Stud.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Package comes in five stages. Let’s have a look at this massive bonus:
- First Deposit: a 100% match reward up to £150;
- Second Deposit: a 50% match reward up to £250;
- Third Deposit: a 30% match reward up to £200;
- Fourth Deposit: a 20% match reward up to £200;
- Fifth Deposit: a 50% match reward up to £200.
This amounts to £1000 total, but the percentages are too low to be worth it. Besides, the wagering requirement for the first deposit bonus is too high - 60 times! Although, the subsequent bonus amounts have to be wagered 30 times, which is fine.
Villento Casino UK is also a member of the Casino Reward Loyalty Program. The rules are pretty standard - play games, earn points, exchange them back into cash, grow in VIP level, get extra rewards. Meh.
