*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.
Established in mid-2016, Stakes Casino has only been running for a few months, but don’t let that fool you. It has an enormous selection of games from a variety of providers, which is sure to please just about anyone. You will find slots from all your favorite providers, such as BetSoft, Microgaming, Netent and others. There are several different types of games to choose from, as well, which we will discuss in more detail later in our casino review. Furthermore, this casino is available in two languages: French and English. Customer Support is at your service at any time, which is also a big plus. The casino is operated by Myeg B.V., who have been in the industry for quite a while and own a number of different online casinos.
The first thing that strikes you, when you open a new casino is the design. And we are glad to say that the design of Stakes Casino is more than satisfying. It’s modern, user-friendly and comes in a nice color scheme of white and peach – easy on the eyes. What’s more, it would appear that the site has its own two characters that will accompany you as you browse through it. One is a rugged, bearded man and a sly-looking boy. The main menu follows you, as you scroll down on a given page, which we also appreciate very much. And for players’ convenience, the casino is also available on various portable devices, so you can play on the go. But there are more extras to keep on surprising you, just stick around to find out.
The fun and excitement isn’t confined to the massive game selection. In continues on into the promotions section of the casino, which you may access from the main menu. First up is the Casino Welcome Bonus, brought to you by the friendly bearded character. Stakes Casino offers to match it 100% up to £100. And in addition to that you also receive 50 free spins. But this isn’t a welcome bonus like any other. First of all, the free spins winnings go directly to your real money balance and have no wagering requirements! And if you don’t meet the wagering criteria for the bonus – no problem. You can withdraw the bonus money winnings at any time! The minimum deposit amount to qualify for the Welcome Bonus is £10.
In addition, there’s a whole bunch of other promotions to take advantage of. For example, you can every Tuesday the casino decides to reward its players with a surprise bonus. The bonus is different every week and players receive an email informing them about what it is. Another weekly promotion they offer is Battle of the Spins, which takes place every Wednesday. The casino will automatically enroll you in the tournament, giving you the opportunity to win an attractive cash prize of up to £100. And of course, there’s a Weekend bonus, which offers a different promotion every week. So basically they’ve covered all days of the week except for Monday and Thursday. But that’s when you can focus on Stakes’ Loyalty Program for more treats and exclusive offers.
Software and Game Selection
As we were already keen to mention, there’s a vast variety of games, as well as game providers to choose from. To have a look at the selection, simply click on Casino in the main menu. This will display a very neat interface, with a number of functions that will make sifting through the enormous number of games easier. Did we mention that Stakes offers over 700 different games? No? Well, now we did. And you can sort them by game type, which with that number is more of a necessity than a luxury. You can view all of the games at once or check out the new additions. The game types include video slots, table games, live casino, other games and jackpots. Also, a little heart will display the games you’ve favorited. And in addition to all that, you can select a game provider from the drop down menu, featuring 8 different manufacturers! And of course there’s a search field, where you can enter a specific game you would like to play.
What’s more, there’s a convenient bottom menu, which will allow you to go back to the games you recently played, as well as check out the most popular choices. You will come across names like Mega Moolah, Jungle Jim El Dorado and Dragonzby Microgaming. You can also enjoy the stunning graphics of BetSoft games like A Christmas Carol, Mr. Vegas and Good Girl Bad Girl. Of course, by no means does the list end here. And what’s even better is that you can play all of these games for fun first.
You can deposit and play using a variety of different currencies here: EUR, GBP, USD, CAD and SEK. The minimum deposit amount for most payment methods is £10, as is the minimum withdrawal amount. Players have a variety of different means of depositing to choose from, as you will see by selecting Banking from the top menu. You can see all methods or sort them by type, such as card, e-wallet, prepaid card and others. There are the standard VISA and MasterCard debit card options and three e-wallets: Skrill, Neteller and QIWI. As for prepaid cards, there are a total of six different options, including PaysafeCard, Giropay, TrustPay and WebMoney. Naturally, these are not available for withdrawal. Stakes Casino also accepts payments via Bank Transfer, although the minimum amounts may put you off. Other options include Mobile Payments, SOFORT Banking and Trustly.
Stakes Casino is licensed in Curacao, which is very popular with online casinos and provides a guarantee for fair play. You are also free to verify this fact for yourself, as the license number is available on the website. If you scroll down to the bottom of any page, you will also see the Curacao eGaming logo. Clicking on it will redirect you to a page that will display the license of the casino and its status. Obviously, you’re looking for the operating status to be ‘Valid’. On that same site you are also free to file a complaint if you have reason to do so.
Contact Info & Social Activity
Support is available round the clock, every day, and offer convenient means of reaching them. There is a Live Chat option in the bottom menu, which you can use to contact customer service with a single click. In the main menu, click on the arrow to select Support for further contact details. These will provide you with an email address: [email protected] and phone number: +356 21 123 456. On the same page is also a contact form, which you may use to send them a message directly from the site.
In addition, Stakes is also present on social media, which we always enjoy seeing. However, their Facebook page doesn’t seem all that active. There is a messaging option available, if you would like to contact them through that. We cannot vouch for their response though, seeing as they haven’t really been posting anything in a while. Last but not least, Stakes is also on Twitter. However, their Twitter seems just as deserted with only a single tweet to show.
As it is, Stakes Casino genuinely pleased and even surprised us with their wide range of games. It’s not every day that you come across a new casino with over 700 games to offer. The promotions they have are also incredible, with unique, almost too-good-to-be-true conditions. The design is very pleasant and makes navigating through the website easy and effortless.
