Casino British are pretty new to the online gambling world, having launched in 2016. They’re operated by ProgressPlay, who have been in the industry since 2012 providing white label casinos and casino operations. As such, they have their fingers in a lot of casino pies, wracking up a fair level of experience in the industry.
- Large and varied choice of games
- Well-functioning mobile site
- 24/7 customer support
- No telephone customer support
- Welcome offer has unrealistic wagering requirements
The Casino British website doesn’t actually scream British, it’s not covered in Union Jacks, bulldogs and cups of tea, instead sticking with a simple royal blue background, limiting the bulldog to the logo and leaving the cups of tea to you. The site feels a little busy on arrival due to the changing top banner, revolving winners information and flashing live chat icon, but once you’ve settled in it’s a nice website, easy to navigate and not a hectic as it seems at first.
Bonuses and Promotions
The welcome offer at Casino British looks pretty good, they’ll give you 100% of your first deposit up to £200, with a minimum deposit of £10. The wagering requirements are really high though, at 50 times the bonus amount, and they’ve put a time limit on it, so you have to meet this requirement within 90 days. Not all games contribute equally to wagering requirements either, so make sure you check out the terms before you play your bonus funds.
The site runs a host of other promotions, giving you the chance to win bonus funds, free spins and cashbacks. It’s well worth keeping an eye of the promotions page, just make sure you check out the offer terms before getting too excited, if the welcome offer’s anything to go by, they’re likely to be quite tight.
Games on Offer
Casino British has done really well with game choice, covering all bases, including slots, table and card games and live casino.
You’ll find hundreds and hundreds of slots to choose from, categorised by new and featured, helping you decide on what you might like to try next. You can play all the slots in demo mode too, so you don’t need to put your money where your mouth is whilst you get your hand in. For those of you who like to stick to what you know, there’s a well-functioning search tool, allowing you to easily check if your favourite games are available. The site works with a wide range of game providers, so it’s likely you’ll find what you’re looking for (Starburst and Gonzo are there).
Card and table games are well covered at Casino British too, you’ll find a good range of blackjack, roulette and poker, as well as less common games such as card game, odd one in, and dice games like sharp shooter and six shooter.
The live casino is really all about blackjack and roulette, with several tables to choose from for both of these games. Other than this, you’ll find just one baccarat table.
24/7 support is on hand at Casino British via live chat and email, with really helpful, knowledgeable and friendly staff. There’s also a well-stocked FAQ section allowing you to solve most simple queries yourself. The only downside to the support is that there’s no option to phone them, which can be frustrating with more complex problems.
The site doesn’t have an app, but the website is fully optimised for mobile and works really well. When you go to the website on your mobile device you’ll be given the option of adding a link to your home screen, making it as easy as an app. The game choice is slightly reduced, however there’s still a good range of slots, blackjack, poker and roulette plus the full live casino offering.
Casino British is fully registered in Malta and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, so you’ve got all the protection you’d have with any other legitimate UK site.
The site operates the industry standard level of encryption, the same used by your online banking, meaning your financial details are as safe as they can be online.
Verdict / Summary
Casino British has a lot going for it, the design and layout are welcoming, there’s a huge choice of games, including a live casino and regular promotions. The welcome offer looks good, but the terms are really tight, so don’t get excited about any bonus winnings prematurely.
Customer service is well covered, with 24/7 live chat and email, but you can’t get them on the phone, which could, understandably, be an issue for some of you.
All in all, if you don’t take the welcome offer at face value and are happy with live chat and email support, this site could well be your next favourite casino.
