Energy Casino Review
- Bonus & Wagering
- Payout Percentage
- Customer Support
If you accept the deposit bonus of 100% up to €200, you are not allowed to place bets that are more than 25% of your total balance via a single game round. Once you've accepted the bonus you must complete the wagering requirements (50xb) attached to it within 30 days otherwise the bonus will expire.
Players from the following countries are not eligible for the bonus: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, USA, China, Israel, Italy, Denmark and France. Players from Canada will receive a deposit bonus of 100% up to €100.
There’s a couple of things I like about Energy Casino, but there’s also one or two things I don’t like. Let’s start with the positive first. For starters it is powered by Microgaming, NetEnt and Novomatic software which offers 250 plus Instant Play games. As a software provider, Novomatic is well-known in land-based casinos throughout the world.
Deposit Bonus and Wagering Requirements
Energy Casino is licensed in Malta a white-listed jurisdiction favoured by many operators. If you’re a new customer to the casino you qualify for a deposit bonus of 100% up to €200. To qualify for it you must deposit at least €10. Before you can cash out your winnings from the bonus you must roll over the deposit and the bonus sum 25 times (50xb).
If you’re from the United Kingdom the bonus and deposit sum must be rolled over 30 times (60xb). It boggles my mind why this bonus carries such a steep play-through. It is way above industry standards and might chase bonus hunters.
‘‘In order to redeem your First Deposit Bonus, you must wager 25 times the bonus and deposit amount (wagering requirements for customers from United Kingdom are 30 times deposit and bonus amount; Canada, Croatia, Greece, Portugal, Serbia and Romania x 40). For example, a deposit of €100 will result in a €100 bonus and you will receive a total amount of €200. You will be required to wager €200 x 25 = €5000 in the casino before you may cash out. To see your bonus and how much you need to wager go to “My account” and click on “Bonus balance – details”.
*Due to the steep wagering attached to the bonus it receives our Court Jester Badge. I have sent a note to management asking them if they can lower the WR. If they comply I’ll update the review. Games that count 100% towards the completion of the play-through requirements are all slot machines.
In addition to the sign on bonus, Energy Casino offers a ”reload bonus” of 50% up to €200. If you’re a VIP member you’ll receive faster withdrawals, specials promotions and special prizes. Every time you wager you will receive players points. Once you have accumulated a certain amount of points they can be convert into cash at the operator’s EnergyShop. Unfortunately the VIP program is by invitation only.
The operator recently added Microgaming and Net Entertainment games to its portfolio. The game library is divided into video slots, table game variants like European Roulette, Blackjack, Sic Bo, towering jackpots, specialty games and video poker. One of the things that shines through is its game guides, they give a brief overview of each game.
Regular depositors can set their own sessions and deposit limits. If you’ve spent more cash than you intended to, you can contact customer support and ask them to self-exclude you from the casino for a certain period to indefinite.
I’m happy to say that Energy Casino does a good job in this department. It can be contacted 24/7 through live chat, telephone or email. If you are a newbie I suggest you go through the FAQs under the heading ”Why Energy Casino”. It addresses common questions such as ”How to make a deposit”, How to withdraw your cash” and so forth.
In summary. If you are a fan of Novomatic and NetEnt slots, Energy Casino is a good start. Unlike other operators, its game selection is diverse further complimented by an exceptional rewards program and quality bonus offers. Payouts are fast and customer support is on song. However, the steep wagering requirements attached to the deposit bonus is rather steep and might place a slight damper on an otherwise promising operator. Recommended.

You can withdraw from €2,300 up to €5,000 per transaction. If you request a withdrawal for the first time you must provide the following documents:
1. Copy of your drivers license or passport.
2. Utility bill (insurance or water and electricity bill) as well as a copy of your bank statement not older than three months.
An additional feather in the cap of Energy Casino, it keeps all customer funds in a trust account that is separate (ring-fenced) from its funds. It is a safety mechanism that protects your cash even if the casino goes bankrupt.
I must admit I am quite impressed with the game variety and quality. The slot machines are laced with eye-catching animations, bonus rounds, multipliers, scatters and wilds. The audio sound in the slots are not over the top and compliments each theme well.
Aside from the slots a few table games (Blackjack, Sic Bo and European Roulette) and video poker complete the site’s gaming suite. The video poker games have an interesting feature which indicates your chances of hitting a winning combination in real time.
Slots machines worth mentioning are the Book of Ra, Gonzo’s Quest, Blood Suckers, Game of Thrones, Thunderstruck II, Dolphins Pearl, Lord of the Ocean and Lady Luck’s Charm Deluxe. When you increasing your bet per spin these games become quite volatile but if they do pay out they payout handsomely. Only a few table games grace the menu. I’m afraid it won’t appeal to seasoned table game veterans and the graphics are not on par with that of industry standards.
Energy Casino recently added software heavyweights like Microgaming and NetEnt to its lineup. As such I increased the operator’s rating. With a compendium of games in its arsenal it’s now one of my favourite online casinos.[addtoany]
