TonyBet is an online casino and sportsbook that started out as OmniBet in 2003 but since 2009 has been transformed into the site you see today, under the influence of Antanas Guoga - more commonly known as Tony G - a well-known poker player turned politician.
TonyBet offers a comprehensive sports betting site as well as nearly 2,000 casino games across slots, table games and live dealer from established providers.
TonyBet is based in Estonia but is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
TonyBet casino offers new players a 100% welcome bonus of up to £300 as well as 50 extra spins on the Dynamite Riches Megaways slot.
You must use the promo code ‘RESOLUTION300’ when signing up for an account at the site and deposit at least £10.
Here are the other significant terms and conditions to be aware of:
TonyBet also offers a 100% welcome bonus up to £50 on their sportsbook, using the promo code ‘TONY50’.
They also have drops and wins on slots with £1,000,000 up for grabs every month, as well as a number of live casino tournaments.
All players at TonyBet casino can land 300 extra spins every week.
There’s 100 extra spins available on Rainbow Jackpots on Tuesday, another 100 extra spins on Reel King Mega on Thursday and a final 100 extra spins on Gonzo’s Quest Megaways on Saturday.
Each set of 100 spins requires a deposit of at least £10 and is available for 24 hours with x35 wagering requirements that must be completed within three days.
TonyBet has been in operation since 2009 as an online casino and sportsbook
and since 2016 have set their focus on markets such as the UK and some of the larger EU nations.
They are fully licensed and regulated in the UK by the UK Gambling Commission under account number 39126, despite being based in Estonia.
TonyBet’s casino stocks nearly 2,000 games from respected, UK-certified developers that you can play for real money including online slots, table games, poker and live dealer games.
All the titles in their collection are legal for real money play in the UK and can be easily filtered by provider at the top of the casino page. You can break down by section - new, promo slots, all games, VIP slots, bonus slots, table games and drops and wins.
There are also live casino and live games pages, while you can search for games in the search bar on the right-hand side as well as see yesterday’s and last week’s top winners.
Grey might not be the most exciting colour of a game lobby, but the dull background allows the large game thumbnails to pop with colour and take up the focus of each page. It’s pretty easy to navigate around TonyBet too.
TonyBet uses eCOGRA to monitor the outcomes and transparency of their games, who perform regular audits and checkups to ensure the integrity of the site is maintained.
TonyBet offers a conservative estimate of over 750 video slots in their game library, which is probably higher given their number of all games is close to 2,000.
They stock themes and gameplay for every type of slot player, with rock fans set to enjoy Play’n GO’s Testament and Twisted Sister titles. Football fans will be keen to try NetEnt’s Super Striker, while we reckon Play’n GO’s brilliant vampire-themed Wild Blood will have a wide appeal.
TonyBet has some cracking classic games to remind you of the good old days such as Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, while detective film fans should try out NetEnt’s Cash Noire.
Everyone likes a big payout and just to get the juices going we’ll tell you that the largest slot win in online casino history was a stunning £11,720,000 won by a Canadian player at a progressive jackpot slot in January 2019.
TonyBet has 40 drops and wins games available with popular titles like Wolf Gold, Sweet Bonanza and Chilli Heat alongside some other great options.
TonyBet’s live casino section is well designed and easy on the eye. There is a search bar in the left-hand side where you can look for games, as well as separate sections for live casino, live roulette, live blackjack , VIP, casino hold’em, baccarat and all live games.
Then you can also toggle between regular, VIP tables and starters. Each game thumbnail shows which developer made it as well as whether it’s online, how many seats are available, the game title and bet limits.
TonyBet’s live casino titles showcase 3D graphics and animations, using real-life croupiers dealing on real tables with real equipment, all streamed to the player in crystal-clear 4K definition.
There are close to 40 blackjack games to check out, with multiple variants provided by Pragmatic Play and Evolution Gaming.
They have 11 roulette games to play, offering starting bets as little as 10p and going all the way up to high-roller bets up to £5,000. Try titles like Auto Roulette, Roulette Macao, Mega Roulette.
With 12 baccarat titles on display, players can bet from as low as £1 up to a mega £10,000, with numerous different variants available such as Speed Baccarat.
Evolution Gaming’s Casino Hold’em may be the only live poker game on offer, but it’s a good one. Played with a single 52-card deck, players compete only against the dealer and not the other players at the table with a healthy game RTP of 97.84% and bet limits from £0.50 to £1,000.
Then you’ve got a host of live casino game shows including Mega Wheel, Mega Roulette and Auto-Roulette.
You cannot use the casino welcome bonus on live casino games, but TonyBet does run some live casino tournaments.
The weekly roulette tournament offers £50,000 in prize money across 1,000 prizes with a maximum of £5,000 available to the top player.
The weekly blackjack tournament has £25,000 available over 300 prizes, while the weekly mega wheel and baccarat tournaments offer £25,000 in total across 600 cash prizes.
We enjoyed our experience at TonyBet and don’t have many complaints about the site's navigation or user interface. All of the text and images are clear and there was a lot more information included about the online casino than you get from many other operators.
The sportsbook was pretty overwhelming with tables and numbers crammed in everywhere, but we won’t focus on that in this casino review.
It’s easy to access your favourite casino games as well as find new ones, search for titles and toggle by developer.
TonyBet is also available on mobile as well as desktop, with dedicated mobile apps for Android and iOS. They offer multi-device compatibility with smooth performance and high-quality images and visuals.
The Apple app can be easily downloaded from iTunes, while the Android app needs to be installed through an .apk file.
If you prefer you can access a mobile casino through your web browser on pretty much any device, which offers all the same top-quality gameplay.
TonyBet has a useful payments page on their site which outlines all their available deposit and withdrawal methods.
They accept debit cards like Visa and Mastercard (credit cards are banned from use in online gambling in the UK) and e-wallets such as Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, Paysera and ecoPayz.
The minimum deposit amount is £10 across the board and there are no deposit fees.
TonyBet insists that you use the same payment source for withdrawing as you did when making the deposit, which is not uncommon for online casinos.
They don’t specify withdrawal processing times and they will depend on which one you choose, with e-wallets known for being the quickest.
TonyBet showcases 26 different software providers on their casino page, highlighting industry trendsetters as Play’n GO, Pragmatic Play, Quickspin, iSoftBet and NetEnt.
You can click on each developer at the top of the page to show just their games.
TonyBet have chosen just two providers for their live casino games and are proud of it, mentioning that Pragmatic Play is an award-winning developer with games licensed in over 20 jurisdictions and 31 languages and Evolution Gaming is the world’s leading live casino game developer with studios all over the world.
TonyBet has a pretty decent RTP (return to player) rate of 94.77% across the site. Some of the games are even close to 99%, while scratch cards can be down towards 50%.
This is reputable data from respected providers like iSoftBet, Pragmatic Play and Play’n GO, while we’ve already mentioned how TonyBet uses eCOGRA, one of the best content auditors in the business.
The site also has a strong live casino which helps boost the figure as live dealer tables are among the casino games with the lowest house edge.
TonyBet registration is quick and pain-free. Follow these step-by-step instructions to get yourself up and running in no time at all:
You’ll have to send some identity documentation to verify your account - which is a good thing as it means the casino is legit - and use a payment method to make a deposit to start playing.
TonyBet offers a 24/7 live chat function found at the bottom right-hand corner of the page. It can get lost sometimes so if you can’t see the green light and text icon just head back to the homepage and it’ll reappear.
They also provide an email of email@example.com to contact if you prefer, as well as Twitter and Instagram accounts. You can also fill out a contact us form on the site, found in the FAQ section. The one thing missing is a phone number.
The FAQ section might actually be the best place to start if you have any issues as it is quite comprehensive.
TonyBet does not currently have a VIP program, which may be frustrating for players who like to earn rewards for repeated play at an online casino. We asked customer support why they didn’t have one through the live chat but they weren’t able to give us a reason.
Hopefully the site adds a loyalty club or VIP program soon, although the welcome bonus for new players and ongoing promotions for existing players are pretty good.
TonyBet has a significant responsible gambling page nested within their FAQ section. This outlines their policy for play responsibly, underage gambling, deposit limits, loss limits, wagering (spend) limits, access to customer history, self-exclusion or time out, keeping control, problem gambling questionnaire and parental controls.
Overall TonyBet is a solid online casino and sportsbook and certainly worth a try given their enticing welcome bonus package of a 100% deposit bonus worth up to £300 plus 50 free spins.
The wagering requirements on their bonuses - which also includes a sport welcome bonus, 300 free spins a week, drops and wins and weekly live tournaments - are steep though.
With nearly 2,000 casino games across slots and table games as well as live casino and live games, you can’t really ask for more. They include all the best developers too.
TonyBet has two dedicated casino apps (for iOS and Android) and a mobile-optimised site as well as the desktop version, which all runs smoothly.
The range of accepted payment methods is solid, the sign-up process is easy and the customer support options are standard.
