Ocean Bets Casino in a nutshell
Ocean Bets Casino is an online casino that’s one of many run by Game Tech Group N.V., a company based in Curaçao. Among the other great casinos that Game Tech run are Casino Triomphe, Crazy Casino and the swanky Parkland Casino.
Complete with a classy-looking site, and with some great providers such as NetEnt and NextGen Gaming on board, Ocean Bets Casino seems geared to deserve at least a little of your gambling consideration. There’s promotions and a live casino too, but we need take an ‘iceburg’ approach here and see what lurks beneath the surface.
So, will it be ‘life on the ocean waves’ at Ocean Bets Casino, or will you end up feeling seasick? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Ocean Bets Casino?
We do find Ocean Bets Casino’s site a little too busy. Things seem to be moving around all the time, and as soon as you land on the site a chat box pops up asking if you want any help. We do prefer tidier sites.
Having said that, this online casino is very easy to navigate around. We like the fact that you can filter slots games by slot provider, so if you only like NetEnt’s slots, then that’s all you’re going to see.
What games are available at Ocean Bets Casino?
It’s hard not to like any online casino that lists NetEnt among its providers. The Swedish slot experts really do make the best games when it comes to online slots – just check out games such as Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst and the bloody-curdling Dracula. As well as NetEnt, there are titles here by GameScale, NextGen Gaming, Amaya, Ainsworth, Thunderkick, LightningBox, Nektan and 1X2 Gaming.
Aside from slots you’ll find five versions of blackjack and six versions of roulette, plus casino poker, poker dice, hi-lo, keno, baccarat, sic bo, craps and twenty-five scratch cards. There are half a dozen versions of video poker too.
At Ocean Bet’s live casino you can play baccarat, blackjack and roulette.
The full list of sofware providers here runs thus: NetEnt, GameScale, NextGen Gaming, Amaya, Ainsworth, Thunderkick, LightningBox, Nektan and 1X2gaming.
Live support is available 24/7, as are live casino games.
There’s a superb mobile verison of this casino, if you prefer to experience your gamblin ‘on the go’.
What promotions are available at Ocean Bets Casino?
You can set sail at the Ocean Bets Casino with an ocean-sized welcome bonus – two hundred percent up to a staggering €1,000!
Usually welcome bonuses of such a volume are subject to stupid wagering expectations but that does not seem to be the case here. You have to play through your deposit and bonus thirty-three times before you can withdraw any of your winnings or any bonus cash that you have remaining. The minimum accepted deposit you need to make in order to secure a bonus is €20, for which you would receive €40 in bonus cash. You need to deposit €1,000 if you want the full bonus amount.
When it comes to meeting your wagering requirements, only slots count one hundred percent. Blackjack, roulette, casino poker, baccarat, video poker, craps and casino war contribute just ten percent. Any other game not mentioned in the ‘ten percent list’ also contributes fully.
You have fifteen days from the award of your bonus to meet wagering requirements.
Ocean Bets Casino likes you to use eWallets it seems. If you make a deposit using Ukash (now part of Paysafecard), Neteller, Skrill, Postepay, Giropay or Sofort, then you will receive a fiften percent bonus on top! You have to deposit at least €20 in order to claim this bonus, and your bonus cash is subject to a play-through of twenty-five times.
Ocean Bets Casino also likes you to receive a different promotion every day – just check out the site’s ‘Luxury Calendar’. Regular promos include stop bonuses of fifty percent plus five free spins, ‘happy hours’ where you can get more bang for your buck at specific periods, and free spins offers where you can take advantage of a ton of freebies.
As well as promos, Ocean Bets Casino also likes VIPs. They offer a four-tier VIP scheme from silver level to black. For every €10 you wager at the casino, you received one VIP point (slots only – it’s one VIP point for every €100 on all other games). You can exchange every one hundred points you amass for €1, and the more points you earn, the higher up the scheme you progress, and you recieve special bonus boosts to enhance your deposits at the site.
Banking is absolutely no problem at Ocean Bets Casino. As you’d expect you can use your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card here, as well as Diners Club and Entropay. You can also use a whole host of eWallet providers too, including Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, ClickAndBuy, Nordea and ecoPayz. You can transfer direct from your bank too, and all deposits are processed instantly and come free of fees. The minimum accepted deposit is €20.
Information about withdrawals is harder to come by here … and it’s easy to work out why as according to the site’s T&Cs the minimum accepted withdrawal is a ridiculous amount – €100. That really, really is too high. Credit card withdrawals take ten business days, and bank transfers five business days. A withdrawal to an eWallet can be processed in as little as one day. Note that you cannot withdraw more than €5,000 per thirty day period.
The final verdict
We were all good and ready to give Ocean Bets Casino a glowing recommendation until we came across that €100 minimum withdrawal limit. It’s not much of an issue but it is a hassle – if you want to withdraw €40 then you’ll need to deposit another €60 into your account in order to get at it.
Everything else here is smooth sailing. Great providers, a spectacular mobile site, regular promotions with achievable wagering conditions and enough games to keep you occupied for days. Why not set sail on the wagering waves at Ocean Bets Casino, and see if you find your own treasure island?
