Dunder Casino is the latest (March 2016) online casino created by MT SecureTrade Limited. If you've read a few of our reviews, then you'll know these Maltese-based guys run some pretty stellar casinos. Among the other gambling concerns run by MT SecureTrade are Guts, Betspin and Rizk. The initial offering is huge – a £600 highroller bonus plus 20 free spins on Starbust when you sign up.
We're not sure how they arrived at the name 'Dunder' though. The only defintion we could find is a little alarming – 'Dunder' is the liquid left in a boiler after distilling a batch of rum. It's also the first half of 'Dunder Mifflin' – the name of the paper merchant in the US version of the UK TV comedy hit 'The Office'. Other than that, your guess is as good as ours.
So, is Dunder Casino a rum place to gamble, or will you enjoy feeding a few slots (that's what she said). Read on to find out …
You don't get a 'welcome mat' at Dunder Casino, but you do get a four-stage bonus that could be worth up to £600, plus 200 free spins in total.
The first deposit bonus is yours simply if you register at the site. Once you have completed your registration, you receive twenty free spins on the classic NetEnt slot, Staburst. Deposit the full £1,525, and play with £2,125!
Your bonus schedule is as follows:
Naturally all this free cash and the bonus spins offer comes with a handful of caveats. First up is that both your initial and subsequent free spins are only valid for twenty-four hours – if you don't use 'em, then you lose 'em. Any free spins winnings you make are also subject to wagering conditions before you can withdraw them. These are set at twenty-five times, which to us is perfectly reasonable.
As for the deposit bonuses, you have thirty days to meet wagering conditions before your deposit money disappears. These wagering conditions are the same as the free spins bonus – twenty-five times the bonus and deposit amount. These requirements are a little higher than we'd normally expect, but are not too terrible. The minimum amount you need to deposit to be awarded a bonus is £20.
We got a little excited when the bonus T&Cs mentioned no specific game weightings, however our enthusiasm was pricked when read the more general T&Cs. Only slots and 'other games' contribute one hundred percent, while all table tables contribute ten percent. Video poker does not contribute anything at all.
We could not find any information about other promotions beyond the welcome bonus at Dunder Casino. The site also does not appear to run a VIP or loyalty scheme.
In total, there are over six hundred games available at Dunder Casino. The guys here take a slightly different approach than the norm to categorisation. As well as the usual ('Live Casino', 'Roulette') games are also categorised by 'themes' – 'Blockbusters', 'Sticky Wilds', 'Stacked Wilds' and so on. This is an innovative approach, and we are very much in favour of it.
The majority of games at the site are slots, as with all online casinos. There are over five hundred of them, and from most of the best available providers such as NetEnt and WMS.
The lack of other games is a total surprise. If you discount the live casino, then there are only three versions of blackjack and four versions of roulette. We are not terribly impressed at the site's habit of 'filling out' their selection by including an icon for each individual live gaming table. As for other table games, you get two versions of baccarat, three of casino poker plus craps, pai gow poker, red dog and hi-lo. There are also seven versions of video poker.
The live casino here has the most action. You can play baccarat, blackjack, roulette, casino hold 'me and three card poker with live dealers.
Dunder Casino is not your usual fare when it comes to design. In general, sites run by MT SecureTrade tend not to follow your typical casino template, and this is what we find here. There is no real menu (aside from a small one at the bottom), and your navigation is driven by very large icons. Does this approach work? To be honest, we're not exactly sure. You seem to end up endlessly scrolling if you are after a specific title. We like the different approach, but the icons could be with being smaller.
If you were to pick five software providers to fuel your online casino site, the five you'd probably go for are NetEnt, Betsoft, Microgaming, NextGen Gaming (part of NYX) and Play'n GO. Dunder Casino has done just that, so you are guaranteed the very best titles here. Unfortunately due to licensing issues Betsoft's games are not available to UK-based players.
Their is live support here, but it's only available twelve hours a day.
The site has a nice mobile version. Thankfully the icons are much smaller!
Game providers:Betsoft, Evolution Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Nyx Interactive, Play'n GO, WMS, Williams Interactive, Thunderkick.
Dunder Casino accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, plus Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, Euteller, EcoPayz and Paysafecard. Please note that there is a 2.5% 'processing fee' if you use Visa, MasterCard or Euteller. All deposits are processed instantly. The minimum you can deposit is €20, and the maximum is €5,000 (€1,000 for Euteller, and €200 for Paysafecard).
Withdrawals all come with a fee (aside from Trustly) – a flat fee of €2.50. The minimums and maximums are the same as deposits. All withdrawals are processed instantly (according to the site), aside from Visa and Trustly which take one to three banking days.
We must state we are not in favour of online casinos that charge transaction fees, either for withdrawals or deposits.

We were rolling along quite happily with Dunder Casino until we hit those transaction fees. Being charged to withdraw your own money that you have legitimately won just leaves a sour taste in the mouth. We're not too keen on the lack of table games either.
The positives are the innovative site design, and the bonuses available to new players. The wagering conditions are perfectly reasonable too, plus we like that so many of the biggest gambling software providers are represented here. You certainly won't be classed as a dunder-head if you choose Dunder Casino as your wagering destination.Sounds good, sign me up!
