What we recommend instead
Chilli Casino Verdict
Despite having only just launched, Chilli Casino looks set to be another huge success for BGO Entertainment. There’s something for everyone thanks to the dual VIP and loyalty schemes, plus the massive library of games, although the lack of live casino and card/table games may put some players off.
It’s also great to see that all bonus free spins have zero wagering requirements.
Design & Usability
From first glance, it’s obvious that Chilli Casino isn’t as slick as its older brother – BGO Casino. For example, the lack of footer makes it’s difficult to find important pages such as help section, terms and conditions and live chat.
However, once you get used to the layout, you’ll be zipping around in no time. We have to confess that we love the vibrant Mexican colours and images of chilli peppers and one-arm bandits that reflect Chilli Casino’s fun and unusual theme.
You can join or log in on the left hand side, and if you forget your password, you needn’t panic as a simple click on the “lost password?” link will send you a reset link in minutes.
Software & Gameplay
In-house software is used to power Chilli Casino, and it has a huge library of games from top developers including NextGen, Playtech, IGT, NetEnt, Barcrest, and Bally Technologies.
Chilli Casino is an instant-play casino that doesn’t require Flash and supports almost all web browsers.
The design of the games lobby allows you to easily browse by A-Z, supplier, theme, and jackpot games, as well as search for your favourite games.
Safety & Security
Chilli Casino Luck is dually licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
At the bottom of the menu system on the left-hand side, you’ll find further information on privacy, cookies, and responsible gaming. The casino uses a secure HTTPS URL and SSL encryption, so we’re happy to report that it’s completely safe to play here.
Payments & Withdrawals
Chilli Casino doesn’t offer quite as many payment options as we’d like, but it does allow you to make simple deposits and withdrawals using major providers including MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, PayPal, Paysafecard, and Neteller.
You can deposit and withdraw a minimum of £10. Withdrawal requests are placed in a ‘pending’ state for 24 hours, after which, the Chilli Casino team processes them as quickly as possible.
Chilli Casino invites you to get in touch via its online email form, telephone or live chat. Sadly, support isn’t available 24/7.
However, the support team is available 7.30 AM – 1 AM, seven days a week which is still better than some online casinos.
Bonuses & Promotions
Chilli Casino has dropped its 100% match bonus and free spins with no wagering requirements offers in favour of the ever-popular Mega Wheel welcome bonus. With your first deposit of £10 you can spin the mega wheel and win up to 666 free spins!
Whilst this sounds like a generous offer, there's still the chance that you spin and win absolutely nothing. Also, any winnings from these free spins are subject to 65x wagering requirements too.
It's a shame to see BGO's unique welcome offers all turning into the same, boring wheel mechanic for free spins, especially now they've added wagering requirements to the winnings.
Terms and Conditions: UK only. Win up to 666 Free Spins from Mega Wheel on 1st deposit. 24-hour expiry. Max bet £2.50, max spins win £8 per 10 spins, max bonus win £150, selected games & 65x wagering on winnings. No neteller/skrill. Deposit/withdrawal fees apply. Full T&Cs apply.
Like its sister site, Vegas Luck, Chilli Casino doesn’t have any mobile apps as it’s already designed to work like a dream on mobile devices.
Whatever screen size your playing on, the casino software automatically adapts to fit, and you can quickly navigate your way around by scrolling, swiping, and tapping.
Variety & Originality
There are bags of jackpot games to enjoy, many of which are produced by Playtech including Age of the Gods – Medusa & Monsters, Batman and The Riddler Riches, Mega Jackpots Golden Goddess, Everybody’s Jackpot, Divine Fortune, and Beach Life.
The online slots are just as varied, and some of our personal favourites include Butterfly Staxx, Cat Queen, Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play, Red Riding Hood, and Mythic Maiden.
We're disppointed by the lack of table games and live dealer studios, however we're sure these will be added at a later date.
Loyalty & Rewards
The Chilli Club that we mentioned in the promotions section rewards one Chilli for every £10 you wager on slots.
The casino also operates a VIP programme that is run on an invite-only basis. Benefits include: speedier withdrawals, a personal account manager, bonuses, cashback, free spins, exclusive promotions, VIP gifts, and invitations to special events.
