The operator behind Casinoland is the Gaming Innovation Group who also manage Rizk and GUTS casinos. Over the last few years Gaming Innovation Group have built up a good name in the industry with their player-friendly terms and conditions, quick support and general transparency.
Whilst not a publicly owned company, their financial statements, license information and other company data are all accessible from the corporate website. Overall we feel comfortable concluding that the operator behind Casinoland is trustworthy and credible.
Although a new casino Casinoland has had a successful launch so it wasn’t difficult to pick up players feedback on the various casino player forums.
The complaints we saw about the time taken for withdrawal and verification were from players creating accounts and seeking bonuses from the same household PC which can be legitimately classes as bonus abuse. The only other negative feedback was from certain players from Eastern European countries not being given bonuses.
Overall player feedback was positive.
The Casinoland welcome bonus is a four stage match bonus of $800 made up as follows
First DepositSecond DepositThird DepositFourth Deposit✓ Receive a 100% match bonus up to $200
✓ Receive a 50% match bonus up to $200
✓ Receive a 25% match bonus up to $200
✓ Receive a 25% match bonus up to $200
To clear the bonus you will need to ‘wager’ each match bonus x40. Video slots contribute 100%, other slots 75% with table games and video poker not making any contribution. If you request a withdrawal before clearing the bonus you forfeit that bonus and players depositing via Skrill and Neteller aren’t eligible for the new player bonus
Bonus in practice: The first bonus is a 100% match, so if you deposit $200 you get $200, but make a deposit bigger than $200 and you will still receive $200. A $200 deposit would need wagering of $8K to clear it (40 x $200), this that means you need to wager this amount not lose it. The second deposit is a 50% match meaning that whatever you deposit, you get a bonus back of half, again up to $200. Of course these are the maximum bonuses – you can make smaller deposits in order to have smaller wagering demands
Bonus Sum Up: This is a fair enough front-loaded multi stage bonus, enabling you to maximize your returns if you only deposit once. The x 40 wagering is now standard and whilst table games don’t contribute anything to the wagering. In practice though there’s little difference between a zero % contribution and the 10-20% contributions on other sites. The the only way to realistically clear a bonus is by playing slots. The bonus is cashable which is also a plus point.
Video Slots:If you’re looking for a top selection of video slots from different software companies then you’ve come to the right place. Currently standing at over 180 different slot games you can take your pick from some of the best titles from Microgaming, Play ‘n’ Go, Betsoft and Quickspin. All the slot games are neatly presented on large tempting icons and you can sort by game provider or by jackpot
I took a whizz through some of the games, many of the big ‘hit’ titles were there including Tomb Raider, Thunderstruck and the Dark Knight from Microgaming and Jekyl and Hyde and Frankenslots from Betsoft. After playing a few spins on Thunderstruck I decided to head off into ‘uncharted territory’ and play a game I hadn’t played before, ‘Creature from the black lagoon’ based upon the iconic 1954 film lured me and it was a real delight to play, with music and graphics faithfully re-creating the film. If winning big is your thing, and let’s face it most players dream of pressing that spin button and then never having to go to work again, then you can play Microgaming progressives including Mega Moolah and Major Millions.
Roulette & Blackjack: Not all Canadians play slots and Casinoland haven’t forgotten them, the choice may not be as great but you can find 3 blackjacks, 5 roulette and 2 baccarat games to test your skills on the green felt. In addition to these is a nice selection of live dealer games provided by Evolution gaming. To play Casinoland’s casino games no downloading is required with all games played through your web browser via the Casinoland instant play / flash casino.
The Casinoland mobile casino is based upon the same HTML5 technology as its instant play casino so all Canadians with a good smartphone (iphone, android, windows or blackberry) can play on the casino via the web browser on their device.
There’s just over 150 mobile casino games available which for a brand new casino is tremendous. Again, slots make up the overwhelming majority of the games but there’s also a good choice of live dealer games.
You can open an account and deposit directly on the mobile casino with navigation and design all set up for the smaller screen.
When Casinoland first opened in 2015 it became obvious that it was one of the new breed of casinos that allowed players to move between computer and mobile play without noticing major differences in the format or functionality. Nowhere is that truer than in their Live Casino.
Evolution Gaming provides live streaming table games for Casinoland. The offering is crafted to Casinoland’s specifications so players know they’ll get a personalized and unique experience. They offer VIP and standard versions of blackjack and roulette as well as Immersive Roulette – a version with close-ups on the ball and the wheel in slow motion when the ball lands.
Baccarat is another popular favorite. In harmony with the high-class experience, the tables are bean-shaped like you’d find in any of Asia’s most popular casinos. Extra statistics with a wide choice of roads, Pairs side-bets, and the ability to watch your competitor’s moves all add up to make live baccarat superior to the RNG versions.
For those who prefer playing poker against the house, try Hold’em, Three Card Poker, or Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Every Tuesday Casinoland offers a promo on one of its latest games. Deposit at least $50 and get 50 free spins – every Tuesday. These free spins will be available immediately.
