What we recommend instead
Casino Kings Verdict
As a whole, Casino Kings has enough promotions, bonuses, and games to keep most players happy. But if you’re looking for truly exceptional loyalty rewards and lower than average wagering requirements, you may need to look elsewhere.
Design & Usability
Casino Kings uses the standard ProgressPlay template, but puts its stamp on it with a smart white, maroon, and silver colour scheme, and monarchical brand logo. The layout is easy to follow, even if you’re unfamiliar with other ProgressPlay casinos, and if you want to log in to your account or sign up as a new member, you can quickly do so via the clear boxes and buttons provided.
We particularly like that Casino Kings advertises some of the advantages of joining it via a series of highlighted icons at the top of the screen. For example, you can play on your mobile; all of the games are no-download; there are over 240 titles to choose from, and the site is 100% safe and secure to use. The welcome offer is also clearly advertised, as are the latest additions to the games lobby. Plus, there are quick links to the Casino Kings social media pages (Twitter, YouTube, and Google Plus).
There’s also a list of recent winners which includes modest wins as well as big ones, and an interesting and informative introduction to Casino Kings.
Software & Gameplay
The ProgressPlay software that drives Casino Kings is seamless, and it offers you a mobile-optimised version of the site as an alternative to playing on your desktop. Its benefits include games from multiple, noteworthy software providers, a simple cashier system that offers a good range of payment methods, and the option to pay by mobile phone bill.
Safety & Security
Casino Kings is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Thawte SSL encryption is used to secure all sensitive data while it’s being transmitted over the web, and a random number generator ensures fair play.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can use any of the following payment methods: Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Pay by Phone, Maestro, iDEAL, MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Delta, Visa Electron, JCB, Switch, Solo, Discover, Diners Club, Trustly, Sofort, Giropay, QIWI, Euteller, Instadebit, WebMoney, and Fast Bank Transfer.
You can deposit £10 to £1,000 per day and withdraw £20 per day and up to £3,000 per week. Withdrawal requests are processed within three business days.
Casino Kings offers a 24/7 live chat service, although when we tried to use it on a Friday at 10.30 AM, we got a “connection unavailable” message. There’s also an online contact form, but no telephone number or email address is provided.
Bonuses & Promotions
Make your first deposit of at least £10 at Casino Kings, and you'll instantly receive a complimentary 100% welcome match bonus worth as much as £200. However, it does come with fairly hefty wagering requirements of 50x.
In addition to the welcome bonus, there are several ongoing promotions including Game of the Day (get free midweek spins when you make a qualifying deposit on Wednesdays), Live Dealer Weekend (claim 30% cashback from your play on the site’s live dealer tables), and Monday Madness (a personalised reload bonus offer that’s emailed to you at the start of every week), and weekly/monthly special events and offers which have recently included the chance to win a VIP trip to Hollywood, and a networked NetEnt Warlords slot promotion that offered the lucky winner a trip to Brazil or Denmark.
The promotions at Casino King are available at all ProgressPlay casinos, so we’d like to see one or two exclusive offers added to give people extra reason to sign up.
As we’ve just mentioned, the Casino Kings website is also compatible with mobile devices, so you don’t need to download a dedicated app. The fact that there’s a separate page regarding mobile games is good news, and it also contains a QR code which you can scan into your mobile phone or tablet to instantly launch the site.
Variety & Originality
Casino Kings boasts over 240 games, including slots (as well as progressives) like Jungle Spirit, Wish Upon a Jackpot, Sam on the Beach, and Divine Fortune, classic casino games such as Golden Ball Roulette, Live Common Draw Blackjack, Deuces Wild Video Poker, European Roulette, and Baccarat, plus scratch cards and instants such as Epic Gems, Boss the Lotto, and Dragon’s Fortune.
All in all, the lobby boasts a great mix of games from a variety of software suppliers, but it would be nice to see some exclusive games added to help Casino Kings stand out from other ProgressPlay brands.
Loyalty & Rewards
Casino Kings offers the standard ProgressPlay VIP scheme, which allows you to earn loyalty points whenever you play games with real money (N.B., 100 LPs = £1). There are five levels in the VIP system, and to start with, the benefits are fairly basic, but at the higher levels, you can enjoy perks like birthday presents, a dedicated account manager, personalised gifts, anniversary bonuses, and access to a VIP support hotline.
