FansBet Casino Review

by Gambling.com™

FansBet casino is a new gambling site operated by Viral Interactive Ltd and licensed in Malta and the UK.

The main focus of the website is the sportsbook and its innovative Fan Network programme which rewards loyal football club followers.

But despite most of the action at FansBet being geared towards sports bettors, there is still plenty to attract slots and table game fans. The online casino boasts over 700 games from big hitters like Microgaming and NetEnt, with a range of regular promotions to boot.

ProsCons
Over 1,000 games from Microgaming, NetEnt and Evolution Low maximum daily deposit limits
Cutting edge verification software for security No telephone support for customers
Welcome bonus and free spins for casino players

Welcome Bonus

Navigate past the many sportsbetting promotions at FansBet and you will reach the casino bonus offers.

If you are serious about claiming a casino welcome bonus, make sure you do so when registering a new account. For example, you can claim free spins on selected slots with no wagering, but the offer is only available when you open an account.

There is also a more standard welcome deposit bonus for new players. Deposit £20-£200 (not Skrill or NETELLER) and you can earn a 100% match offer. One downside is the bonus wagering requirement of 60x. That's a lot higher than you will find at other online casinos.

Other promotions: Apart from a welcome bonus, there are very few casino promotions at FansBet. A Game of the Week offer rewards slots players with free cash when they bet a set amount on the selected online slot. We struggled to find a dedicated VIP program for casino players offered by FansBet.

Registration

New casinos always make registering a new account simple. FansBet certainly falls into that category.

We found that opening an account was quick and easy. All you need is a valid email to receive confirmation, then choose a nickname and password before supplying a home or mobile phone number.

You can also choose your favourite football team from countries across Europe in order to join the site's Fan Network scheme. By nominating your favourite team and affiliated fan club, they can benefit in a share of FansBet's profits.

On registering, you will immediately have the chance to set daily limits. This can be a set loss amount or a gambling limit for the day, week or month.

Under the terms of FansBet's UK gambling licence, however, you will have to upload two forms of ID before making a first deposit. This can be a passport or driving licence scan, plus a recent utility bill. FansBet uses ShuftiPro verification software, some of the slickest we've ever seen.

FansBet also requires an added face verification security process. You must take a selfie upon registering and upload the image via your Profile. The software will compare your selfie to your passport or photo ID image for a complete match.

Despite the added security, we found the registration process to be pretty smooth. We were able to make a deposit within our first hour on the site.

Payments and Banking Methods

You can make deposits into your FansBet account using a range of cards and banking options. You can also select one of half a dozen currencies when signing up: GBP, EUR, NOK, SEK, CAD, or AUD.

MasterCard and VISA are accepted, but there are some restrictions on using cards to make withdrawals. e-Wallets like Skrill and NETELLER offer instant banking.

There are no fees attached, and the minimum deposit amount is £/€10. The maximum deposit amount is set at £/€10,000 a day, which should be fine for most gamblers hitting the FansBet site.

There are withdrawal limits on some players of £/€7,000 a week, but these limits don't apply to anyone playing in the UK or Sweden.

Desktop/Mobile Experience

FansBet casino works on an instant-play platform that you access through your web browser. There is no download software, which makes the site perfect for players on Apple and PC machines.

Admittedly, the desktop client and lobby is geared up for sports bettors. The layout of betting markets and special features are excellent, but the casino is much simpler.

You can opt to view all available games in an A-Z, or sort by Popularity and New Games. There are also quicklinks to jackpot games, table games, and individual developers like Microgaming.

The search function is useful, and you can save selected games to your Favourites list. We would have liked to have seen more detailed information on each game, however. You also can't test games out for free before committing a bankroll.

One criticism we have is that when you close some games, you are kicked out to the FansBet sportsbook homepage, rather than the casino itself.

There are over 1,000 games in total at the online FansBet site, around 700 of which are slots. Table games account for around 60 of the site's titles.

Despite the uncluttered desktop client at FansBet, we actually prefer the mobile version. You won't need to download software to play, and you can access the games through your iOS or Android browser.

Live Chat can be accessed via the speech bubble icon, which sits permanently on your portable device screen. Deposits and withdrawals can be made by tapping the credit card icon at the top of the screen.

There are 675 games for mobile, 400 fewer than the online version, but most of the big slots titles have been converted for smartphone play. There are around 30 table games for mobile phones and tablets, compared to 60+ online.

Popular games like NetEnt's Advanced Roulette and Microgaming's European Redeal Blackjack are available for real money on mobile. There is also a live casino with live blackjack, live roulette, and live Casino Hold'em.

Game Variety at Fansbet Casino

FansBet casino has over 1,050 table games and slots. That's a huge number for a site that is really focussed on sports betting and fantasy sports.

Games can be played in a browser (we recommend updating your Google Chrome or Safari before starting) but there are no demo-play versions of games.

Around 700 of the games at FansBet are video slots and progressive jackpots, and most major developers are represented. Microgaming (370+), NetEnt (100) and Play'n GO (70) are the best-represented in terms of slots.

The 'New Games' area is regularly updated with fresh games. We found over a dozen progressive slots on the site too. Top titles include Microgaming's Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis. We would have liked to have seen some more of NetEnt's progressives like Cosmic Fortune and Mega Fortune.

You can enjoy over 60 table games at the FansBet online casino. Staples like European Roulette and American Roulette sit alongside slick variants like Microgaming's Premier Roulette and Play'n GO's Multi-Hand Blackjack.

Roulette: NetEnt, Microgaming, and Play'n GO provide the bulk of the roulette games at FansBet. There are also a handful of live casino roulette games from Evolution.

For VIPs, there are higher-stakes games like NetEnt's Roulette Advanced with £5,000 top bets.

Blackjack: There are well over a dozen blackjack variants in the FansBet lobby. Red Tiger Gaming's simple Classic Blackjack allows bets from £1, but look out for Play'n GO's Multi-Hand Blackjack with top bets of just £100.

Other games: FansBet falls down a little on its game variety. The majority of the 63 table games are roulette and blackjack, but there is the odd Casino Hold'em and Stud Poker game from Play'n GO. Microgaming also supplies a cheap Keno variation with stakes ranging from £1-£10.

Betting Limits

The range of bets in the online casino at FansBet isn't the biggest we've ever seen. In fairness, most games are geared towards casual gamblers and sports bettors looking for a punt away from the sportsbook.

That said, some roulette and online blackjack games go up to £5,000 a game. The live casino is also pretty friendly in terms of stakes. Live blackjack can be played as high as £10,000 at the exclusive Salon Privé tables. There is, however, no dedicated VIP section on the FansBet site.

Even the selection of Microgaming progressive slots has a wallet-friendly range of available betting limits. Top bets go up to £500, but games like NetEnt's Mercy of the Gods only have max limits worth £100 a spin.

Return to Player Percentage

There is no audit verification at FansBet, but with Microgaming and NetEnt in the lobby, it's easy to gauge the site's general RTPs.

Some of NetEnt's best-paying slots are in the FansBet lobby, such as Dead or Alive II and Blood Suckers.

Pragmatic Play's top-paying game, Gold Train (RTP: 98.10%) is also available to play from just £0.01. Similarly, Microgaming's Hot Ink carries a 97.5% RTP and is one of the developer's best-paying games.

Customer Support

FansBet offers the usual range of support options for customers. Like many new websites, a pop-up chat window will appear when you sign in or try to join up. Enter your name and email, select a language (English, Finnish or Norwegian) and talk in real time to a live chat staff member. There is currently no phone support at the site.

There is also a comprehensive Help Center on the FansBet site containing a full FAQ. It provides clear answers to questions on registration, security or deposit issues.

Responsible Gambling Features

FansBet takes responsible gambling seriously. As soon as you register you are asked to set deposit limits for the day, week or month.

You will also receive 'gentle reminders' from FansBet while you are logged on, telling you how long you have been online for. When this happens, you will have the option to log out or continue playing and gambling.

In the 'My Profile' section of your account, you can set loss limits or programme your game sessions to finish at the end of the day, week or month. There are also options to set wager limits, time limits, or request a cooling off period of one day to six weeks.

Our Verdict

FansBet might be making a name for itself as a new kind of sportsbook, but the casino side of the operation is still impressive. There are more slots than most dedicated online casinos, but the table game selection is limited, despite there being over 60 titles.

FansBet takes its responsible gambling duties seriously, and there are constant reminders about how much you are gambling, and how often.

The live casino site could do with some TLC, and we found that the titles tended to get lost amidst the general games lobby. A bank transfer deposit option would also be an added benefit.

Those minor points aside, FansBet is a casino to look out for, especially if you want to combine some sports betting with roulette and slots.
