Cartoon social media sensation, Aunty Acid, has been doing the rounds since 2012. The senior citizen’s witty and satirical comments are relatable to both the younger and older generation, so much so that Electraworks Limited was inspired to make her the star of not just Aunty Acid Bingo but also Aunty Acid Casino. Running on the Cozy Games software platform, Aunty Acid Casino offers players a mix of slots, casino, and scratch card games combined with comical graphics featuring the crazy pink-haired pensioner. But, will you embrace Aunty Acid Casino like a long-lost relation?
Bright and unusual fabric designs in mint green and magenta make Aunty Acid Casino stand out from the crowd. And, an image of Aunty Acid is used in the site’s logo at the top of every page. Aunty also appears in the ad banners that highlight the three-part welcome offer as well as other pages across the online casino. However, we can’t help feeling that more could have been done with the unique Aunty Acid theme – maybe speech bubbles or sound effects that include some of her comical quips?
The homepage presents you with a brief collection of the site’s top games, and you can view the full selection of slots, casino games, and scratch cards using the three tabs on the menu at the top. For more options, there’s an expanding menu on the left-hand side that includes Promotions, Contact Us, and Responsible Gaming.
An ad for the mobile site sits further down the homepage followed by an introduction, the latter of which is informative and fun to read, but the text struggles to stand out over the textured green background.
Aunty Acid Casino’s support team is on-hand from Monday to Sunday, around-the-clock. You can contact them by live chat, telephone, email or online contact form. However, the telephone number is shared among several Electraworks’ online casinos, so you’ll need to specify that you’re ringing about your Aunty Acid Casino account.
Several interesting special offers are featured on the Promotions page, and if you’re considering signing-up, you’ll be most interested in the three-part welcome bonus. On your first deposit of £10+, you can claim a 100% casino bonus (N.B., max. £200) plus thirty free spins. Make a second deposit of at least £10, and you’ll be offered a 50% casino bonus worth up to £100 plus fifty free spins. Finally, with your third deposit of £10 or more, there’s another 50% casino bonus up for grabs and eighty free spins. Although it seems like a generous package, the 40x wagering requirements are higher than average and, therefore, may not be to all people’s tastes.
Reload bonuses are available on all of your future deposits, and there are no restrictions on how often you can take advantage of them. There are two options to choose from: 1) deposit £10 to £99 and get 15% extra (up to £50) or 2) deposit £100 or more and get 25% extra (up to £150). Again, the wagering requirements are 40x, and you can also only win a maximum of 5x your bonus amount (which is capped at £500).
Every Monday, members can claim one free spin on the Fluffy Favourites slot for each £1 deposited up to a maximum of fifty, and on Wednesdays and Fridays, you can claim as many as three 50% reload bonuses of up to £50 on deposits of £10 or more.
Aunty Acid Casino uses Cozy Games software, and as such, you have a choice of Cozy Games, Eyecon, NetEnt, and Quickfire games to enjoy.
When you enter the lobby, you can favourite particular games that you like playing but sadly, there’s no option to play for fun – only with cash.
Games open in a separate window which includes links to other games and the cashier, and you can choose to play full-screen if you wish. It would be better if the Aunty Acid theme was used as a backdrop as the lack of branding makes you forget what casino you’re playing at.
On the homepage, there’s a section which advertises the mobile version of Aunty Acid Casino, and the brief instructions state, “Same login, different devices. Just sign-in and enjoy!” What this effectively means is that there’s no mobile app. Instead, you simply visit the Aunty Acid Casino website using your mobile browser and sign-in or sign-up.
Aunty Acid Casino is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. Security is taken care of via a secure URL, an SSL certificate issued by Trustwave, and Comodo Secure transaction processing. The site’s RNG has been tested by iTech Labs.
The line-up of games at Aunty Acid Casino is identical to other Electraworks online casinos such as Lucky Gold, so it can’t be called original. But, while Cozy Games titles aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, you also have the option to play lots of popular slots such as Mega Moolah, Game of Thrones, Immortal Romance, Planet of the Apes, Jurassic Park, Thunderstruck II, Twin Spin, Gonzo’s Quest, Avalon, and Starburst.
Fans of video poker and classic casino games may be a tad disappointed with Aunty’s offerings as only eight titles are available, including Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild, 10’s or Better, European Roulette Gold, French Roulette, and American Roulette. So, if you’re hoping to play blackjack or baccarat, you’ll have to play elsewhere.
Currently, there are thirteen scratch cards such as Cold Cash and Lucky Fish, but as you can’t try them out in demo mode, we suggest that you visit a Cozy Games bingo site such as Little Miss Bingo where you can not only play them for fun but also with BBs.
The Cashier lets you enter deposit amounts of your choosing or you can use any of the Quick Select options to add amounts ranging from £10 to £500. You can pick Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Delta, Visa Electron, Neteller, Solo, Switch, Paypal, Paysafecard, Pay by Mobile (Boku) or Ukash as your preferred payment method.
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount are £5 each, but be warned – if you win a progressive jackpot, you’ll only get £5,000 per week until the full amount has been paid.
Withdrawal requests are processed fairly fast, and should take no longer than three working days.
Unfortunately, the “Bonus & Loyalty” section of the FAQ does not refer to a VIP or loyalty scheme.
The idea of an online casino based on the comical cartoon character, Aunty Acid, is inspired. But, we can’t help feeling that more could’ve been done to make the theme more apparent and interactive. Putting this to one side, however, as online casino sites go, there are plenty of popular slots to play although the lack of casino games is disappointing. We also feel that Aunty Acid Casino would attract more players by offering a loyalty/VIP scheme.
