VIP Bet Casino Review
VIP Bet casino is a Nektan powered casino that puts you in the VIP spot. The tried and true black and gold colour scheme pairs with a modern, mobile-friendly design for a luxurious experience. Equally approachable on tablets, mobile phones and desktop devices, this casino does its best to draw you in!
Given that this casino is operated by Nektan, it is no surprise to find Nektan exclusive slots within its library. But if those are not your cup of tea, many other providers also made their games available at VIP Bet. Can we expect this casino to shake things up, and finally provide a new Nektan experience? Unfortunately, the answer to that is no.
We were somewhat hoping Nektan might use the start of 2019 to stir the pot a little. However, both it and Jackpot Slot failed to make any significant changes to the familiar formula. Then again, it can be quite difficult to iterate on a design that is so good already!
VIP Bet casino utilises the latest SSL encryption to ensure all player data is protected from any outside attackers. However, like all other Nektan releases, this casino also reserves the right to share your data with third parties. This is done for innocent means like age verification and payment processing, and less innocent ones like marketing and advertising.
The casino also has a dual license by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. Thanks to the UKGC license, players from Great Britain can register and enjoy themselves at VIP Bet without constraints. Meanwhile, gamblers from the United States are restricted access, per the casino’s T&C.
VIP Bet casino reaps the advantages of being under the Nektan umbrella, as they can offer exclusive slots like Gunslinger’s Gold. But that exclusivity does not keep the casino from idling, and it seeks other providers to fill out its roster. One look at the sidebar shows some big names, like Pragmatic Play, NetEnt, and NYX Gaming, but that’s not all. At VIP Bet, a total of twenty-six providers offer their numerous games, giving you lots of options to pick and choose from.
With over 600 games of various types and developers, finding what you like sounds like a nightmare. Fortunately, Nektan remains one step ahead of the competition with their search sidebar. Simply highlight your favourite provider, the type of title, and even the type of wins you are after! We are often surprised how many casinos seem to lack this useful feature, considering how important it is.
The majority of available games are slots, with a few dozen table games and live casino titles to spice things up. And if that is not your cup of tea, VIP Bet casino offers bingo, lotto and a few arcade games.
Narrowing down your search is one thing, but quite another to determine whether or not you will enjoy a slot. Fortunately, most available games come with a freely available demo. You do not even have to register to enjoy the vast library of titles. Of course, if you want to eventually transition into earning cold, hard cash, then you will have to register.
It is not entirely clear on what payment processors are available before you register. They are not listed in the FAQ, so you will have to scroll to the bottom of the page, or dig into the T&C for the nitty-gritty details. This is something other casinos do better than Nektan, and we hope to see them improve on this front soon.
Available payment processors include: Visa, MasterCard and Maestro cards, Neteller, Skrill, Boku, Paysafe, Paypal, Trustly, Zimpler, GiroPay & SoFort. Zimpler is only available for Swedish gamblers, while GiroPay and SoFort are exclusive to German players.
VIP Bet allows the following currencies to be wagered on their website: EUR, GBP, SEK, CAD & NZD.
Cash withdrawals are restricted to one every twenty-four hours, with a maximum withdrawal cap of GBP 2000. All bonus funds must first meet certain wagering requirements before they can be withdrawn. Nektan still limits the maximum win in all of their games, setting it at GBP 250,000. The only exception to this rule are progressive jackpots.
The FAQ available on the website is very useful in answering most of the questions gamblers may have. If you plan on playing at VIP Bet at some point, we recommend reading it, or at least skimming through. But if you have a question the FAQ does not have an answer for, or something went wrong, do not panic. Because the helpful support staff is only two taps away from coming to your aid.
You can choose to contact the staff by writing an e-mail. The downside to that approach is that you will have to wait a while before you receive a reply. Fortunately, Nektan provided both live chat and phone calls that connect you directly to support.
However, neither of these services are available 24/7. Instead, they work from 08:00 to 00:00 British time. As more and more casinos offer always online support, Nektan’s casinos will have to play along, or risk being left behind.
Conclusion of VIP Bet Casino Review
Sadly, there really was nothing new or exciting to really catch our attention. As we mentioned earlier, we had slight hope Nektan might reveal something new in 2019. But the year is still young, and we might still be pleasantly surprised.
Meanwhile, VIP Bet offers little more than a gold-black re-skin of the same casino we have seen before. That, by itself, is not a bad thing. Nektan still offers some functionality a lot of other casinos lack. That said, their design team needs a breath of fresh air, especially in an era where tiles rule the webpages.
