Games and Software

As soon as you hear that an online casino is mainly powered by Microgaming, you know that you’re in for a good amount of games, and some fantastic graphics and gameplay. Microgaming is known the world over for their brilliant video slots, table games, and more. Here at Casino Mate you will find more than 500 different slots games, which range from 3 reel easy spins for beginners, to multi payline video slots with multiple bonus games and a whole lot of potential for big wins. You’ll also see progressive jackpot games, which allow you to watch the jackpot grow as you play, and give the chance to win prizes which often climb past that one million pound mark.

We find it tough to choose our favourites amongst so many great names, but you’ll definitely want to check out a few of the following:

  • Hellboy
  • Mayan Princess
  • Jekyll and Hyde
  • Magic Charms
  • Forbidden Throne
  • Rockstar
  • Red Hot Devil
  • Attack of the Zombies

You can also enjoy 3D slots here, by none other than Betsoft. We particularly love Under the Bed, but we will leave you to choose your own must-play option.

As well as slots, there is a strong collection of table games to enjoy. Of course, there are multiple types of Blackjack and Roulette, but that’s not all. Casino Mate actually has more unusual table games than many other online casinos we’ve seen. There is Top Card Trumps, Three Card Rummy, Beat Me, Craps, Pirate 21 and Red Dog, as well as some of the more standard offerings such as Casino Hold ‘Em and a few versions of Baccarat.

If Video Poker is your thing, you’ll find plenty of choice. There’s Deuces and Joker, Jacks or Better, All American, Aces and Eights, Tens or Better, Bonus Deuces, and Split Way Royal, just to name a few of the selection.

Live Casino

For some people, a live casino is a must-have when it comes to online gaming. They love the banter of the dealers, the atmosphere of vegas, and the fun of the real time live play with other players all around. If that’s an important element for you of a casino, then keep on scrolling by, and look elsewhere. Casino Mate does not offer a live casino at all, which is a shame considering there are over 700 games on the site.

Perhaps in the future they will consider adding live games to their repertoire, but for now, members will need to do without.

User Interface

It’s easy enough to get around at Casino Mate, with everything you need accessible from the home page, from slots and table games, to your account information and help and support. The site offers live chat which means you can always reach out with any problems.

We like the design of the site, although some might say it’s a little old fashioned. There are hardly any adverts on the site, either internal or external, which gives it a gentle feel and doesn’t distract you from the important part – the gameplay itself. The colour scheme is attractive, and once you choose what game you want to be playing, it loads smoothly and without any technical glitches.

Mobile Casino

There are no mobile apps to download for Casino Mate, whether you are using an iOS device or an Android one. In fact, you can use any mobile device or tablet to navigate to the Casino Mate site on the go. Simply use your phone browser and head to the regular website, and you’ll be able to access many of the slots, table games and poker games on the go.

Although some people prefer apps, having a strong mobile site can be just as good, and provide access for more people than an exclusive app which only works for certain operating systems. In addition, you don’t need to download the app and take up space on your device, which for a game-heavy app would be substantial.

The mobile browser version is very functional, and has everything you need, from regular payment options, to help and support if and when you need it.

Gamification

There are no loyalty or comp points up for grabs at Casino Mate, and no tournaments or missions to encourage players to keep playing games against one another. There is a VIP club, which is known as Club Mate. This works by invitation only, so apart from being loyal to the site and playing a lot of games, there’s not a lot you can do to ensure that you can become a member. We would love to see some points system created, so that players can work towards entering Club Mate from their own hard work and dedication – because it looks like an amazing club!

Some of the perks include, exclusive promotions and bonuses which the rest of the casino members don’t have access to, larger withdrawal limits to help with big wins, faster withdrawal times for cashing out, your own dedicated VIP account manager, and a special VIP welcome bonus to the club. Sounds good eh?

Promotions

We love to see a nice range of promotions at any good casino, and Casino Mate doesn’t disappoint. For newcomers to the site, you can benefit from the Welcome Bonus package, which currently goes across your first 4 deposits on the site.

Some casinos stop incentivising once you’re through the door, but that’s not at all the case here. There are dozens of promotions and rewards going on, some regular and others one-offs. Some examples of promotions from the past include Make Money Mondays0. There has also been Weekend Hero, where missions are given, and you get match bonuses on completion. Casino Mate likes to switch it up, with different kinds of promotions all the time, so make sure to keep checking back.

Banking

There are more than a dozen methods for payments at Casino Mate, so you should have no trouble finding one that suits you. The main options which can be used for both payment and withdrawal are Visa and MasterCard, Neteller, UKash, UseMyBank, WebMoney, Pay Sark, EcoPayz, Skrill, Entropay and a Bank Transfer.

Depending on which one you choose to withdraw your money, you’ll have to wait a certain amount of time before you can see your winnings. What’s brilliant is that the pending time is anywhere from 0 hours to 24 hours only, while other casinos sometimes make you wait 48 hours or even at times, 72. After this, eWallets will be credited between 24-72 hours, and credit and debit cards within 7 days, but they could be as quick as 3. Bank transfers can take between 1-5 days. These are speedy withdrawal times against others in the industry, so we’re impressed.

Any casino with a responsive live chat guarantees that the staff care about their members, so Casino Mate is high up on our list of great support choices. If you’re lucky enough to be in the VIP club then you’ll even benefit from your own VIP support! If not, you still have a direct phone number, manned email and a 24/7 live chat to use for all the help you need.

Our Verdict

The promotions are fantastic here, and the games speak for themselves with over 700 to choose from, mostly from the Kings of Gaming, Microgaming. It’s a real shame that there is no live casino offering, as that would lift this casino into the five star category. Even with that gap, the great mobile functionality and loyalty club help make this a site not to be missed for any online gaming fan.
