There are a total of 5 live games available from this casino. These are as follows: common draw blackjack, live blackjack, live roulette, VIP live blackjack and VIP live roulette.
No Bonus Casino comes with a live-chat service. This is available 24/7. It also comes with an email address for general enquiries, which can also be used via a form on their support page. There is a phone number for support available, though this is for UK users only.
Other than that they don't offer much in the way of a help or FAQ section. If you experience problems with this website be prepared to have to deal with their staff.
No Bonus Casino also lacks any sort of problem gambling help section.
No Bonus Casino Design and Usability
The general design of No Bonus casino doesn't really revolve around a specific theme. After all, basing a design around the idea of a no bonus casino doesn't lend itself to a lot of graphical flourish. Instead, what they go for is a simple purple, white and pink theme, with large and obvious drop-down boxes and links. A little lacking in content, but what is here is easy to find.
In terms of usability, this is one of the better websites out there. Perhaps because of its modern design, there is little in the way of fluff for No Bonus Casino. While this also means it is cutting down on some of the more useful other features which are common among other casinos, No Bonus has obviously been designed to help people play, rather than show off their bonuses as so many casinos do.
There is no official phone app available from No Bonus Casino. It is, however, designed to run on most mobile devices. Simply visit the website from a mobile device to be forwarded to a mobile version of the website. While there are a few games which will be unavailable on mobile devices, most will run perfectly fine.
- Compatible Systems
Mobile devices capable of running HTML5 should work with this site just fine. Specifically this means somewhere in the area of:
- Apple iOS 7.0.X and above
- Android 3.X and above
- Windows Phone 7 and above
- Blackberry OS 10 and above.
It might also run on some devices older than the ones listed, though generally this is not recommended.
HOW TO REGISTER
Registration for this website is done in three parts, the forms below and email confirmation.
The first page asks for simple user information and country location.
The second page asks for more personal detail and a working phone number. This is important when user password/usernames are forgotten. When this page is completed an email will be sent to the user. This needs to be opened and accessed in order for the account to be verified and made active.
- Withdrawal methods and times
No Bonus Casino offers the following forms of withdrawal: Bank Transfer, Neteller, Skrill, Visa.
The fastest of these methods are through E-Wallets, with withdrawal time being around 0-24 hours and bank transfers being 3-5 days. These are all on top of a 0-24 hour pending time. The withdrawal limit for No Bonus Casino sits at 5000 EUR per week.
As you might have guessed from the name, there is none of the traditional bonus cash from this casino. Instead, No Bonus casino uses a points program. This program gives the player 1 point for every £10 they deposit, and the player loses 1 point for £10 they withdraw. 50 points can be exchanged for £5.
At the time of writing there are two currently active promotions from No Bonus Casino these are as follows:
Hansel and Gretel Free Spins
To be eligible for this bonus the player needs to have deposited £20 or more in the last week. This bonus gives players 50 free spins on this 5 reel, 10 payline pokie.
Wild Wild West Cashback
Players for this pokie will be eligible to receive no less than 50% cashback up to a total of €40.
Our Experience and General Reviews
My experience with No Bonus Casino has been largely positive. The site itself, while lacking some key features, runs quickly and responds very well. Given how eager some providers are to let their websites remain outdated and only just functional this was one of the easier sites to review.
General reviews of No Bonus Casino run from medium to high. Most review sites place it around the 3-4 star range.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
When it comes to game selection, No Bonus casino has a selection which is somewhere in the upper tier. Yggdrasil and NetEnt are both huge providers here, so this works very well for game variety. Amatic Industries is smaller in this regard, but they still have some great games on offer.
The lack of signup bonuses is obviously expected, but it can be a bit of downside for some. While there are other promotions on offer, as well as the player points system, this struggles to make up for the lack of any proper welcome bonus.
Where it does really suffer is in the help section, or rather the lack of a help section. Simple FAQs can really save a lot of time here, so I have to wonder exactly how they overlooked this. The lack of a problem gambling help section is also not a great thing.
General consensus on No Bonus Casino is that it does quite well in what it wants to do, though could use some more attention.
Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it at 8.7/10, with casinolistings.com rating it at 8/10, rightcasino.com giving it an 81% and vegasmaster.com giving it an 100%.
Despite a lot of effort put into searching for a social media presence for this page, ultimately, I could find none. Whether this is because they have no social media page to offer, or it was a side effect of their name being such a common term in the online casino game is unknown. With a name like this it might be a bit tricky to get their pages out there in the first place, so I'm not really sure how much they should be faulted for their lack of visibility in this regard.
The website itself for No Bonus Casino is fast and responsive, which is a good start. In addition to this it also has a great selection of games from some of the best software makers in the business. Naturally it does suffer when it comes to bonuses, thought the player points bonus does help a little bit in making up for this shortcoming. Overall I feel that this is a site which really needs to make a more concerted effort to overcome the shortcomings of basing an entire casino around a concept such as no bonus. This is a difficult thing to achieve, and No Bonus casino doesn't seem to be tackling this as hard as they should. That said, if you don't like meing messed around, and just want to get into playing some pokies then site might be worth a look, otherwise I'd hold off for one with a little more to offer.
