Although Free Spin Casino is not licensed and regulated in the United States. U.S based players are allowed to play here.
Free Spin Casino is licensed under the laws of Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. This little island is a former Dutch colony situated in the heart of the Caribbean with a total population of 150,000. Over the years it has become the jurisdiction of choice for many online casinos mainly due to its sunny demeanour and low tax rate.
Is it safe and legal to gamble here if you’re a player from the United States? The answer is yes. Although the operator is not regulated by the U.S government it is licensed in a jurisdiction where gambling online is perfectly legal. If you’re from the U.S you must be 21 years or older.
Powered by Realtime Gaming, Free Spin offers a kaleidoscope of 180 casino games. It includes a variety of slots machines, table games, video poker and other games. The slogan of the operator is ”More Slots, More Action”. One can cleary see that the majority of the games are slots with a bit of table games like blackjack, roulette, baccarat followed by video poker, towering jackpots, scratch cards and other games.
The game graphics and animations are okay but not as good as that of NetEnt or Microgaming. The software is available in the Instant Play or Download. There have been cases where the instant play or flash software was a bit ‘jittery’. If you want to experience the full gamut of the operator’s games I suggest you go for the downloadable software. Not only are the game graphics better but they don’t ‘freeze’ whilst you’re playing your favorite game.
Deposit and Wagering Requirements
As is the case with most operators today they offer new customers a sign on bonus just for pitching. Although it’s a nice incentive, it might not always be in your best interest. Let’s have a look at the bonuses Free Spin Casino offers its first time customers.
I might add, casinos powered by Realtime Gaming are known for their lucrative bonuses. However, even though they are large more often than not their insidious bonus terms leaves a lot to be desired. The bonus of up to $2,250 is divided into three bonus offers. The first bonus is 100% up to $500, bonus code: SPIN1. The play-though attached to it is 30 times the bonus. To be honest this is not bad, I’ve seen worse.
To ‘unlock’ the bonus you must deposit at least $20. The bonus can only be used to play slots machines, scratch cards and keno. Games like baccarat, roulette, bingo, red dog, pai gow poker, craps and sic bo are excluded from the bonus wagering. Bets made on blackjack, Texas hold’em bonus poker, video poker or multi hand video poker count one third towards the original value of the play-through (on these games the sum of bets placed is divided by three).
Additional Bonus Terms
- Free no deposit bonus must be turned over 50 times on slots, keno and scratch cards before a withdrawal is allowed. You will only be able to make a once-off withdrawal for a minimum of $100 and a maximum of $100. Additional winning credits become void.
- Free Spins bonuses must be rolled over 50 times on specific video slots before you can cash out. You’re only allowed a once off withdrawal of $100 up to a maximum of $100. Free spins awarded on Football Frenzy, Hen House and Shark School are subject to a deposit of $20 before you can make a withdrawal.
The support staff at Free Spin Casino is available 24/7 be it through live chat, email or telephone. The live chat support can improve. I find that the operators are not knowledgeable enough especially when it comes to the knobs and dials of the casino like it’s bonus terms and general T&C’s. A Frequently asked questions section gives you an overview of the various deposit and withdrawal methods, security, bonuses and technical aspects of the site. If you’re new to gambling online please go through it before you sign up.
If you’re a problem gambler or you’ve exceeded your weekly or monthly budget you can self-exclude yourself from the casino for a certain period. To do so, simply contact Free Spin and state the reason/s for your self-exclusion plus the period you wish to be self-excluded. In addition to the self-exclusion option the operator offers deposit and session limits.
Rest assured that your private or account information will not be disclosed to any third party other than Free Spin Casino. The operator employs encryption software that ensures that your account information stays under lock and key at all times. Remember, store your login details to the casino in a safe place.
Free Spins states that its software is audited regularly by Technical Systems Testing (TST) for safety and transparency. When you click on the link (Gaming Labs Certified) at the footer of the page it opens up on the CDS Corporations Limited page. Not good, this is a complaints page, it loses some credibility by us in the transparency department.
In summary. The fact that Free Spin Casino has been online since 2009 means that it must be doing something right since so many RTG casinos has gone belly-up since then. Taking into account the size of the deposit bonus and reasonable bonus wagering I can’t say that I’m not impressed. However, it’s the instant play software that has me concerned. Don’t expect smooth game play here since the games tend to stall at times. Rather go for the download software if you want to play without any hiccups. Otherwise recommended.
Bonuses & Promotions
Free Spin Casino offers a welcome bonus of up to a maximum of $2,250 spread out over three deposits.

The bonus is entirely optional. Before the bonus can be credited to your account you must provide the bonus code first. The next bonus will only be credited to your account once you’ve completed the roll over amount attached to it. To qualify for a bonus you must deposit 20 credits or more. *Before you accept the bonus make sure that your country is included since most European countries are excluded.
When you click on the ‘Promotions‘ tab you’ll see the various promotional offers. The operator offers weekly and weekend promotions to returning players as well as comps on selected games. Be sure to check your Inbox regularly if you don’t want to miss any forthcoming promotions.
- The usual comps apply. For every $10 you wager on slots machines, scratch cards, keno, bingo or caribbean table games you’ll receive 1 comp.

- Every $50 wagered you’ll receive 1 comp on the following games: All Black Jack, Craps, Multi Hand Video Poker or Video Poker.
Banking at Free Spin Casino
Free Spin does not offer many deposit and withdrawal methods since it focuses primarily on the US market. You can fund your account with one of the following: Money Gram, Neteller, Skrill, Visa and Western Union. The operator does not accept credit cards as a deposit or withdrawal option.
Withdrawal requests via ewallets normally take between 24 to 48 hours, bank transfers take up to 7 days. If you use bank transfer as a withdrawal method, the minimum amount that can be withdrawn is $100 and the maximum amount is $5,000. A withdrawal fee of $50 is charged which is very steep.
Withdrawals will only be processed once you’ve provided the following documents:
- A valid copy of your ID book or passport, must contain a picture.
- A photocopy of the front and back of your credit/debit card (non U.S).
- A copy of your latest utility bill, it must not be older than 90 days. It must clearly indicate your residential address.
Note: Progressive jackpot wins are not included in the withdrawal limit of $5,000 per week. All wins from progressives will be paid out in one lump sum. However, if you request a withdrawal that is more than $5,000, it will be paid out in increments of $5,000 per week until the full amount is settled.
The RTG game variety of 180 plus games is not the best we’ve seen to date, especially if one compares it to Net Entertainment’s. Unfortunately this is the nature of the beast at the moment and U.S based players must suffice with this for the time being.
As said previously, the majority of the games are slots followed by table games, progressive jackpots, video poker, scratch cards, a limited variety of blackjack, baccarat, craps, roulette and video poker. The graphics and animations that feature in the table and video poker games and I’m sorry to say this are sub-standard but they are fair and offer regular payouts albeit small.
If you prefer to play slots machines this is an entirely different matter altogether. Games like Achilles, Fruit Frenzy, Hairway to Heaven, Aztec’s Treasure and Aladdin’s Wishes more than make up for this. They’re loaded with free spins, scatters and wilds.
If you’re an avid progressive player you might be disappointed since the jackpots are low.
The site is also mobile responsive since it offers a mobile casino which can be accessed from smart phones such as Android or iPhones.[addtoany]
