Interwetten Casino in a nutshell
If you live in Austria or Germany, then you’re probably familiar with Interwetten. For non-German speakers, ‘Interwetten’ simply means ‘bets’ – something this brand has been doing since 1990!
Interwetten first established an internet presence in 1997, but only as an extension of its sports betting activities. The company launched its own online casino in 2004.
Interwetten has long been established as an excellent provider of sports book activities, but does their casino offering come up to scratch? Keep on reading to find out…
What’s the look and feel of Interwetten Casino?
The casino site is nicely rendered in Interwetten’s core colours of yellow and black, and follows the standard design of a casino website. Despite functioning perfectly well, the site does now look a little ‘2000s’ and we think a re-design could be in order, including better use of white space. We assume the ’25 years’ banner across the top of the landing page refers to the age of the site, and not the last time it was upgraded, although we can’t be sure.
Bit of a mixed bag – we love the navigation on the site, but…
We’ve got to admit that the site looks very dated overall
What games are available at Interwetten Casino?
Aside from the sports book and live betting options, Interwetten has five main categories: Casino, Live Casino, Games, Skill and Virtual Sports.
‘Casino’ is where you’ll find all the main slots and table games. There’s a very pleasing selection of online video slots, including some great games like The Invisible Man, Go Bananas and Lucky Leprechaun.
There are twenty-one versions of roulette, and the same number of versions of blackjack, including some interesting varieties such as single-deck blackjack. There are three versions of casino poker and sixteen video poker varieties that cover all the usual bases.
Listed under ‘other games’ you will find baccarat, keno, and a few scratch cards.
The ‘Live Casino’ section has roulette, blackjack, baccarat and Casino Hold’em.
All the games in the main casino are provided by NetEnt and Microgaming, but you can find more slots and scratchcards under ‘Games’. These are provided by iSoftBet and NeoGames. The ‘Skill’ tab at the site seems to be empty.
The final tab, ‘VirtualSports’, you can bet on virtual football or tennis matches. The football games are actually very nicely rendered, and you can watch the highlights of games in an imaginary European football league.
The main software in the casino section is provided by NetEnt and Microgaming, while the games under the ‘games’ tab come from NeoGames, Cryptologic, GreenTube and iSoftBet.
All games are played in a browser.
The Interwetten mobile app is available for Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The mobile app intergrates sports betting, casino games (mostly NetEnt and Microgaming slots and games), live casino and the virtual football league.
Can I play at Interwetten Casino on mobile?
When a casino ensures that even Windows Phone is supported, then you know that the mobile experience is going to be top notch. While the site isn’t the greatest in terms of design, it translates well for those wanting to play while on the go.
What promotions are available at Interwetten Casino?
If you head to the Interwetten casino site you’ll be surprised to find they don’t make too much of a song and dance about their welcome bonus. In fact you’ll only find details tucked away on the left hand side of the welcome page at the bottom of the menu.
The maximum bonus you can achieve as a newb at the site is €100, and the minimum you need to deposit to earn one is €10. This is a double-your-deposit bonus, so you need to deposit €100 to obtain the full amount.
The bonus is released in five equal chunks, and you need to wager 30x per ‘chunk’ for your cash to be released. The first and third chunks can only be redeemed by wagering at the casino, the second using scratch cards only, and the fourth games only. The fifth chunk is split equally between live casino games and scratch cards again.
You have two weeks in which to earn your bonus, and game weightings are as follows:
- Slots, scratch cards, ‘soft games’ – 100%
- Roulette – 25%
- Blackjack & baccarat – 15%
- Video poker & casino poker – 10%
Interwetten has no VIP scheme, but there is mention of a ‘Loyalty Bonus’ on the landing page. However, if you click the link you are told that no loyalty bonus is currently available.
You’ll have no problems funding your account at Interwetten. , MasterCard and Diners Club are all covered, as is VPay, a debit card popular in European countries such as Switzerland and Austria. Sofort Überweisung, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal and ecoPayz are all available as well, and there is a €10 minimum deposit.
You can withdraw via most of the same methods (aside from MasterCard). There is a withdrawal limit, but it is an extremely generous $/£/€100,000 per week. There’s a pending period of 24 to 48 hours, and most withdrawals are completed within five working days.
Does Interwetten Casino have a VIP Programme or Loyalty Scheme?
Terrible. Not only does Interwetten have no VIP scheme, there’s a false mention of a ‘Loyalty Bonus’ on the landing page. However, if you click the link you are told that no loyalty bonus is currently available. Not cool, guys!
What are the pros & cons of Interwetten Casino?
While we have some negatives that we’ll cover throughout the review, there’s also lots going for Interwetten, especially if you like to mix up your slots playing with the odd sports bet. Read on to find out more about the pros and cons:
- Lots of slots and table games, including titles from NetEnt and Microgaming
- Back by a very long-established, Austrian-backed company
- Great for players from Germany, Austria and Switzerland
- The 'Virtual Football League' game is very nice indeed
- The site looks a little out-dated
- No live chat help facility
The final verdict
Lots of online sports books now have casino offerings, but as far as Interwetten goes it seems to have fallen a little behind the times. This is suprising, given that the company has been online since 1997, and the casino has been running since 2004.
We do like any casino that includes offerings from NetEnt and Microgaming, and there are plenty of table game options. We also have to admit we really like the ‘Virtual Football League’ game, and are now time-served virtual fans of ‘VF Manchester’. Add on the generous withdrawal limits and sportsbook options and you have a nice, all-round gambling portal here. It just needs a new lick of paint.
