Betreels Casino in a nutshell
Betreels Casino is an online casino that’s new for 2016, opened by Nektan (Gibraltar) Ltd. Nektan are old hands in the online casino game, and have already opened a number of casinos – well into double figures in fact. Some of the casinos that Nektan have created include BetBright Casino, Kerching Casino and Spin Princess Casino. Nektan’s casinos are noted for their suitability for mobile platforms, i.e. smart phone and tablets.
Nektan used to be criticised for a lack of software, but the Gibraltar-based company seemed to have fixed that of late, bringing along such gambling industry giants as NetEnt, IGT and NextGen Gaming in their wagering fray.
So, is Betreels Casino a casino you can ‘reel-y’ bet on? Or will you be reeling away in horror? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Betreels Casino?
Nektan’s online casinos all follow the same basic template design, and Betreels Casino is certainly no exception. It gets our approval for being a minimalistic design – a simple menu beneath the inevitable banner, below which the games available are selectable via thumbnails. It does help though that the gaming content at Betreels Casino is minimalistic too.
Betreels presents a colourful, appealing casino platform. Navigation is easy thanks to the large, visible buttons and organised layout.
There’s nothing unexpected at Betreels, which most players will agree is a very good thing.
What games are available at Betreels Casino?
Like all of Nektan’s sites, the games portfolio here is virtually completely online slots. The good news is that they have many top slots providers on board. You’ll be able to play top slots such as Merlin’s Millions, Twin $pin and Steamtower.
The not so good news is that for non-slots fans there’s very little else to play. There are two versions of blackjack, one version of roulette and nine scratch cards. No video poker, baccarat or casino poker.
There’s no live casino here either.
Software here is provided by NetEnt, NYX/NextGen Gaming, Genesis Gaming, IGT and Nektan themselves.
Support is by phone, live chat and email.
The site is designed more for tablets and smart phones than desktops, but it works fine on PCs and laptops.
Can I play at Betreels Casino on mobile?
The Betreels mobile casino action takes place in your average mobile browser so there’s no need to download any additional apps. It closely resembles the desktop version and is equally accessible.
What promotions are available at Betreels Casino?
To encourage you to try the fare at Betreels Casino, the site offers you five pounds absolutely free, with no deposit required. However, the wagering conditions for your freebie fiver are not the best – x100. The maximum amount you can win from your free cash is £20.
New customers are also entitled to a max £500 bonus when they sign up at Betreels Casino. Your bonus schedule is set out thusly:
- 1st deposit: 200% deposit up to £50
- 2nd deposit: 100% deposit up to £200
- 3rd deposit: 50% deposit up to £250
To be eligible to claim any of these bonuses, you must make a minimum deposit of £10 each time. Your bonus funds have attached to them a wagering requirement of thirty times the bonus amount. You cannot use either blackjack or roulette to meet your wagering requirements. You have twenty eight days to complete your wagering requirments else you lose your bonus funds.
The maximum amount you can win from any bonus is four times the value of the bonus amount. This means that for your initial bonus, for example, the maximum you can win is £200. When you complete your wagering requirements you lose any amount over £200 you might have won.
At the time of this review Betreels Casino was offering a regular Tuesday promo – deposit and play any of their available slots games on a Tuesday to receive a one hundred percent matched bonus up to £25. The T&Cs associated with this bonus are the same as with the first deposit bonus. There was another offer where if you deposited at least £10 in any one week you received ten free spins on Starburst. Any winnings from these free spins were paid as bonus money. There were also weekly 50% matched deposit offers up to £50, or 75% up to £150, and a ‘Bonus Spins Bonanza’ where you can obtain seventy-five free spins on Butterfly Staxx with 30x wagering and a 4x winnings cap.
Betreels Casino operates a loyalty scheme called ‘Privileged’ which sees members earn cashback offers, weekly bonuses, deposit rewards, free spins and more. The honour of becoming privileged is only open to those invited by email.
When it comes to getting money into your account, the site accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, plus Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard. You can also use your mobile phone bill (not PAYG accounts) to charge your deposits. The minimum accepted deposit is £10, and deposits are processed instantly.
The minimum accepted withdrawal is £20, and requests are limited to £2,000 per day and £5,000 per month. Betreels Casino say a withdrawal can take up to three days to be processed, and then seventy-two hours for it to be processed by your payment services provider. You may not be able to withdraw to MasterCard, Paysafecard or by your mobile phone bill.

The final verdict
We’re pretty familiar with Nektan’s casinos by now, and Betreels Casino is certainly no exception to the standard Nektan fare. It’s a simplistic online casino designed mainly for tablets that is almost all completely slots. The bonus offers are decent, but perhaps nothing to get excited about. There’s really nothing else that can be said.
