Casino Gates is pretty new to the online gambling world, having launched in 2015. They’ve partnered with Cozy Games Management Limited who have a wealth of casino experience, having been in the industry since 2005, they’re associated with a lot of other online casinos, bringing a good dose of experience to the table.
- 24/7 customer service
- Great mobile game play with access to all games
- Relatively small amount of games on offer
- Tight terms on welcome offer, such as a cap on winnings and high wagering requirements
The website’s newness is evident, it feels nice and modern, with a grey fabric background, which is complimented by red tones. The navigation is straightforward, with everything you need included in the pretty snazzy left hand menu, you’ll have no problems signing up and finding the games you’re after.
Bonuses and Promotions
The welcome offer is a pretty decent one. You’ll get a 100% bonus up to £200 on your first deposit, plus 25 spins on the Brittonaire slot game. The minimum deposit is £10, opening the offer up to those of you who prefer to play it safe. There is a wagering requirement in place of 40 times the bonus amount and there’s a cap on winnings from your bonus funds at £500 or 5 times the bonus amount, whichever’s lower. Not all games contribute equally to wagering requirements, bear all of this in mind to avoid disappointment. The free spins are only valid for 14 days, so make sure you use them up, maximum winnings from free spins are £10, so don’t get too excited.
Your second and third deposits will also qualify for a bonus of 100% up to £100 and you’ll get an additional 15 spins with your second deposit and 20 with your third. The same terms as the first deposit bonus are applied to this promotion, which are pretty tight, so make sure you digest them fully before getting caught up by the offer.
The site runs various other promotions, such as opportunities to win weekends away, these tend to be opt in offers, so it’s well worth keeping an eye on the promotions page.
Games on Offer
The quantity of games doesn’t run in to the hundreds, but there are over 50 to choose from, and it’s all about quality, not quantity, right?
Slots are well covered, with well-known games such as Starburst, plus a lot of others. The majority of the games on the site are slots, but you’ll also find a good variety of table games, such as blackjack, roulette, poker and keno.
In addition to the above you’ll find a decent range of scratchcard games. There isn’t a live casino offering at Casino Gates, so if live is what you’re after, you’ll be better off elsewhere.
Customer service is available 24/7 by live chat and email, there’s also a really good FAQ section on the site, which should help you out with any minor queries. You can also contact the support team by phone, the number isn’t evident on the website, but if you prefer this method, just ask for the number on live chat.
Casino Gates is geared up for mobile use, you won’t find an app, but the website is fully optimised for mobile, so you don’t need to download anything. The games choice hasn’t been reduced, with everything on the main site also available on the mobile site and the game play is still really smooth.
Casino Gates is registered via its parent company on the Isle of Man and fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission giving you all the protection you’d get from any other genuine UK online casino.
The site operates the industry standard encryption, meaning all your financial transactions are as secure as your online banking facilities.
Verdict / Summary
Casino Gates is a new site, bringing with it a modern, fresh design. There aren’t many games on the site at the moment, but what’s there is good quality. If you like the slots, there is enough at Casino Gates to keep you busy, but there is a decent choice of table games to choose from too. The main down side is that there’s no live casino.
The website is fully optimised for mobile and the amount of games hasn’t been cut, so you’ll have the same experience whether playing on a mobile device or desktop.
The welcome offer looks good, but wagering requirements are high and there are some surprises in the terms, such as a cap on bonus winnings. Customer services is well covered, with 24/7 support, but it’s a shame they’ve hidden the contact number away, as telephone support is available.
This site is definitely worth a visit for some good quality games, although it’s not for you if live casino is your thing.
