King Casino is owned by Fortuna Gaming and powered by Aspire Global. It’s a UK-regulated online casino that also holds a license from the Malta Gaming Authority.
Those are some pretty promising credentials, so why does this site have so many niggling issues and why is no one doing anything about them?
All new players at King Casino can collect a Welcome Bonus of up to £150, along with 50 Free Spins.
The first bonus is capped at £50 and the second at £100. The minimum deposit is £10 and there is a wagering requirement of 35x. The spins are released in a batch of 20 and 30 respectively and they expire in 24 hours, so use them quickly.
King Casino likes its written content. In the conclusion of this review, I’ll discuss some of the problems with this content. But at times, it’s a good thing, and the bonus section one such time.
If you check the Bonus Terms and Conditions, you’ll see extensive examples and clear explanations for all of the bonus terms. The site goes to great lengths to explain them and leaves little room for mistakes and misconceptions. That’s always good to see.
I am writing this review on December 31, 2021 (it may well have been updated since then). That might seem like a random digression, but it’s very relevant, as there are several promotions on the site that are listed as “Coming Soon”. One is supposed to be arriving on December 16th and another on December 17th.
Both should have been here 2 weeks ago, and yet they are still “Coming Soon”. It suggests that the site either has an issue, or someone’s not paying attention and hasn’t been for a while (more on that below).
On the plus side, there are a few promotions targeted toward loyal players. These help to keep things interesting, giving you a chance to collect Free Spins and Reload Bonuses on a regular basis.
The most interesting bonuses are the slot tournaments, one of which is active while the other is “coming up” 2 weeks ago.
Slots and Bingo Rooms
King Casino has hundreds of games from a host of top developers. This is one thing that the casino gets right.
The developers listed here include NetEnt, Play’n GO, Microgaming, Red Tiger Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, and Evolution Gaming. It’s a good selection and one that’s very common on UK casinos—it’s not a coincidence, as these are the games that seem to be popular among UK players.
The bingo offerings are few and far between, but that’s to be expected. King Casino is an online casino with an emphasis on slots and Live Casino games. It is not a bingo site.
Depositing and Withdrawing
King Casino accepts a multitude of payment methods, including debit cards, Trustly, Skrill, Klarna, Neteller, MuchBetter, PayPal, ecoPayz, Interac, AstroPay, Euteller, Paysafecard, and others. Not all of these methods are available to players in the UK, so keep that in mind.
I didn’t make any withdrawals during my King Casino review, but the withdrawal section of the site states that web wallets will be processed from “Instant- up to 2 days”. This is a pretty varied range.
Usually, it would mean one of two things:
- The payments are processed instantly unless there is a verification issue
- Cashouts are rarely (if ever) instant, and will always take up to 2 days
In King Casino’s case, I’m inclined to believe the latter. The only reason I say that is because, under a section on cashouts, it states that if two are made within 24 hours, they will be combined.
If the withdrawals were being processed instantly (which is to say without a pending period) there would be no combined withdrawals.
King Casino Review Summary
King Casino is a decent site overall, but there is a lack of polish and attention to detail, and that’s what lets it down for me.
Firstly, the site is riddled with spelling mistakes and odd grammar choices. Such mistakes are acceptable on casinos that don’t primarily target English speakers and even on casino review sites and blogs, but on a site that targets English players and asks for their trust and money? It’s just not acceptable.
I spent 2 minutes on the main page and the About Us page to find these issues, so it’s not like I’m nitpicking.
“At King Casino we are committed to provide fair play at all times.”
“…a company incorporated under the laws of British.”
“Check them our on our progressive jackpot slots tab now!”
Also, there are statements like this, “If you find yourself with a compulsive gambling problem”. As if it’s something that you inherit from a dead uncle or catch in a crowd of people.
It’s so oddly worded, and in places, that wording would be close to breaching UK guidelines. As someone who has written for UK casinos, I know how strict they can be when it comes to inferring that players can “win” anything, and yet King Casino has statements like the one highlighted in the image below, telling players they can “win” a bonus.
It’s not even the writer’s fault. The issue is that these mistakes are blatantly obvious and would be noticed by even the most half-arsed editor, suggesting they couldn’t even be bothered to hire one.
It’s that sort of sloppiness that irritates me, and it’s something you’ll find across the industry.
There are issues with the promotions, as well. As noted above, they announce that they are coming soon and then show a date that is several weeks in the past.
I can’t help but think that no one is paying attention here (just my opinion, of course) and that doesn’t inspire the greatest confidence in me.
