Review: Enjoy A Colourful Gambling Holiday Anytime

FunCasino immediately refreshes the eyes and perks the spirits up with its colourful theme. The site meshes a Las Vegas look and feel with some tropical elements. Your hosts and gaming companions are some cute bouncing characters that look a little like anthropomorphic hard candies.

Of course, there's much more going on here than just adorable graphics. Scratch just below the surface and you'll find a larger-than-usual welcome bonus, generous weekly promotions and a large selection of games. Fans of big progressive jackpots will be particularly interested in the lineup here!

Among other things, players at FunCasino can take advantage of:

  • Not one, but TWO initial deposit bonuses that match your funds with extra play.

  • Guaranteed weekly bonuses for top-up account deposits to keep you coming back.

  • Hundreds of unique slots with some titles that are not commonly seen elsewhere.

Cashing in on FunCasino's Big-Time Bonuses

In addition to the cute characters, one of the first things that caught our eye was the bigger-than-usual numbers attached to not just the first deposit, but the first two deposits.

Type Amount Match Playthrough
Signup Bonus 11 ES N/A 50x win amount
1st Deposit Bonus £499 + 100 ES 50% 50x
2nd Deposit Bonus £499 50% 50x

First of all, you'll get 11 extra spins just for signing up - no strings attached. These can be used at Starburst, Joker Pro, Wild Wild West or Finn & the Swirly Spin. We used this opportunity to get to know Finn & the Swirly Spin, an unusual and graphically impressive slot that allows you to choose from a menu of extra spin bonuses and unlocks more options as you play on. This adds a touch of strategy to the standard slot experience.

100 more extra spins at these games come your way with your first deposit, so long as it's at least £10. That deposit will also be matched with extra play at 50%, as will the second!

Note that table games, video poker and the live casino don't contribute at all to the wagering requirements here. However, every single one of the slots (as well as every other game type) contributes a full 100% of every wager!

Keeping the Fun Flowing With Ongoing Promotions

Do you like slot tournaments? If you said "yes", FunCasino needs to be added to your roster immediately. The property puts a major focus on tournaments, and you'll often see one (or more) going every day of the week. The tournament types and frequency are always changing, so the best way to keep up is to create a free account and opt in to FunCasino's promotional emails.

In addition to the regular tournaments, FunCasino also almost always offers some sort of "reload bonus" that gives you a percentage of extra play for topping up your account. These amounts change regularly, however, so it's best to keep an eye on the site or opt into emails to keep up with what's on offer.

Game Time! What Should You Be Playing at FunCasino?

FunCasino's fun roster spans the full range of usual casino categories, with about 500 games in total available. Some major points to note are the live casino, the collection of big jackpot progressives, and a nice assortment of the new arcade-slot hybrid games.

Another point of interest is that FunCasino doesn't have the same old same old tired roster of worn-out slots. Make no mistake, FunCasino is served by a selection of big-name, all-star software developers. The collection here includes some stuff that we didn't even know was in their catalogues!

FunCasino's full lineup of games includes:


Slots - FunCasino has a very respectable collection of the more standard slot games, totaling out at 61. Fans of the classic reel-based games will find plenty to keep them busy here, but there are some interesting hybrids as well. For example, All Ways Win incorporates a bonus round into what is otherwise a fairly standard five-reel game. Pick up enough of the special coloured star symbols and you'll be granted as many as 15 extra spins. Thanks to this feature you can enjoy a 97% payback rate!


Video Slots - Do you prefer the excitement of playing modern slots with hot graphics and complex bonus rounds? So do we. That's why we spent a little extra time perusing FunCasino's roster of 298 video slots. You'll find popular licensed titles nestled in this category including Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones (both the 15 line and 243 ways varieties) and Jurassic World. One that we really enjoy here is Shoot!, which should tickle fans of classic footy with appearances from some of the game's all-time greats like Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cryuff.

Jackpot Games

Progressive Jackpot Games - Want to hit that life-changing win in just one pull? FunCasino has you covered. The "big boys and girls" here are Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis, the multi-property titles from Microgaming that regularly have major jackpots exceeding £6,000,000. Also present is Mega Fortune from NetEnt, where the major jackpot usually only trails Mega Moolah by a million pounds or two (no big deal, right?). Seven additional progressives are available including Caribbean Stud Poker for the table game fans.

Live Games

Live Games - FunCasino does have a live dealer casino (with streaming video games) and it's a surprisingly big one. These are provided by Evolution Gaming and boasts eight types of roulette, five types of baccarat, a whopping 46 blackjack tables, two types of Texas Hold'em, and Dream Catcher. There are also three types of live poker - triple card, three card and Caribbean Stud. FunCasino also has Football Studio, the hot new live game which syncs up with major matches as they happen. The Squeeze and Control Squeeze versions of baccarat are also something fairly new and not seen just everywhere yet; these allow you to physically squeeze and turn over cards yourself, an element that many players feel is key to the experience.


Blackjack - 12 appealing blackjack varieties are found on FunCasino's virtual floor. One of the main things we like about the blackjack action here is that it addresses one of the most common player complaints: not enough variety in betting limits. You'll find everything from low limit tables (as little as £0.10 per hand) to high limit pro and single deck tables that let the high rollers put down as much as £500 a go. There are table limits and rules to suit every taste, and that's before we even get to the 46 additional tables in the live dealer section!


Roulette - Eight types of roulette await you at FunCasino. That's an acceptable number, as there's really little you can do to vary the game aside from add some side bets and change the minimum and maximum wager amounts. On that note, as with blackjack, FunCasino tries to provide a good range of action for all budgets with low limit tables at a £0.10 minimum and high limit tables that go up to a cool £1000 for each turn of the wheel. The most interesting point of note here is that the favourable French rules tables allow low limit bets, something you don't see everywhere.

Other Games

Other Games - FunCasino has the new hybrid slot-arcade games that allow you to play a little video game or mini-game of some sort as one of the bonus rounds. These include Big Break (help a pack of monkeys recover their flying surfboards) and Germinator (choose a germ to remove to create combination rows similar to Bejeweled or Candy Crush). Quite a few scratch cards with enhanced graphics are also available.

FunCasino's Lively Graphics and Software

The backbone of FunCasino consists of three of the industry's biggest names in software development: NetEnt, Microgaming and Amanita Design. Evolution Gaming provides the live casino games. Evolution is a great live game provider because of the variety of options they offer, which FunCasino takes full advantage of. The other three providers give you a mix of popular in-demand titles and some more unique types of slots.

We've mentioned the colourful Vegas theme, which helps you feel like you're off on a casino getaway even if you're at home or stuck on a train. NetEnt and Microgaming are also both known for the detailed graphics and fun themes in their games; some good examples of their prowess include Hotline and the Jack Hammer series.

FunCasino's Easy Deposit Methods

Whatever deposit method you would prefer to use to play for real money, FunCasino has it covered. A variety of major credit cards, e-wallet service, direct bank transfers and prepaid cards are available. All of these methods are safe and secure, with the latest in encryption technology in use.

Do keep in mind that FunCasino links deposit methods to your withdrawals. That means you must make a deposit with something in order to later withdraw using that method. You can simply make a small deposit to make each method you are interested in available, however. This process also keeps things secure and helps FunCasino to offer you very fast deposit times.

Deposit method Fee Processing time Minimum Deposit

Fast Withdrawals Are More Fun

Nobody wants to wait forever on a withdrawal. If we recommend a casino, they have to process your withdrawal request in at least a reasonable amount of time. We're happy to say that FunCasino goes above and beyond in that department. You'll find most methods of withdrawal come back to you within an industry standard amount of time, with no hassle whatsoever. They're also fee-free.

Withdrawal Method Fee Processing time Minimum Withdrawal
visaVisa Free 72 hours £20
SkrillSkrill Free 24 hours £20
NetellerNeteller Free 24 hours £20
paysafecardPaySafeCard Free 24 hours £20

What Loyalty Earns You at FunCasino

As with some of L&L's other online properties, bonus points at FunCasino are earned from deposits and withdrawals rather than wager amounts. You get a point for every pound you deposit and lose a point for every pound you withdraw (provided points are available; you can still withdraw without any points in your account). Accrue 50 points and you can cash in for £50. This is a good scheme for those who make frequent deposits, even if the amount is small.

Word is that free tournament entries are also a very common surprise perk for loyal players!


How Much Fun Do High Rollers Have?

There isn't a formal VIP or high roller program in place just yet, but action from our contacts indicates that you get some pretty sweet extra play, extra spins and entries to exclusive tournaments once you're recognised as a major player here. There are also dedicated VIP live dealer tables with favourable rules and white glove service for the biggest players in the field.

FunCasino's Competitive Advantage

What we like most about FunCasino is that it's just easy. Easy on the eyes, easy to navigate, and easy to find the games or table terms you're looking for. Part of what makes it seem so effortless is a well-thought-out selection of games that offers something to the full gambling spectrum, from big whales to the ultimate in budget deal hunters. L&L is still a relatively new player, but if they keep racking up hits like FunCasino (and some of their other properties) they'll be a real force to be reckoned with in online gaming before long.

Good Customer Service Adds To The Fun

We're happy to report that FunCasino clears the final bar for recommendation here - solid customer service support. Support is available in most of the major languages spoken throughout Europe and it is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Contact options include email, live chat (through a web browser) and a telephone number. The telephone and live chat options got us an instant response, and email responses never took more than 60 minutes to come in.

  • Appealing look and feel paired with a smooth interface.

  • Part of the L&L Europe Ltd. family, operators of a number of other well-liked UK properties.

  • Huge range of deposit and withdrawal options with quick and safe payouts.

  • Major focus on tournaments, usually with multiple types running weekly.

  • Very generic name that can easily be confused with the now-defunct (and disreputable) Fun-Casino.

FunCasino Really Is A Lot Of Fun

by John Taylor - Casino Expert

FunCasino really does do a good job of replicating that feeling of a fun casino getaway. The game collection is varied and exciting and it always seems like there's something new to explore. The most interesting part is that this is still a relatively new and small casino, so we're excited to see what else it adds over time. As it is it's already one of the best new casinos we've seen recently. At the very least, slots players need to check this place out to get in on their regular schedule of tournaments!
