Extra Spel is a European online casino which is operated by AG Communications Limited on behalf of Dwebgroup Ltd. AG Communications is better known as Aspire Global, which also powers Kaiser Slots and Karamba Casino. Extra Spel predominantly stocks online slots from NetEnt, WMS, NextGen, Microgaming, and NeoGames, but you’ll also find scratch cards, casino games, and live dealer games in its lobby. The casino’s mission is to provide its players with “the ultimate gaming experience”. To find out if it backs up its big claim, read on.
Extra Spel Casino uses very modest branding that just stretches to the inclusion of a four-leaf clover in its logo. While the website itself looks smart and attractive, the lack of branding fails to make a memorable and lasting impression on the viewer.
The site is nicely laid out with the full lobby on the homepage, a banner which rotates through the welcome offers, and a menu and submenu that let you view the game types in more detail, browse the current promotions, visit the Help page, or look at the VIP scheme.
At the top-right, buttons are provided that allow you to sign-up, log-in, change the default language, and launch the live chat facility.
It’s good to see that live chat, email, and telephone are all listed as means of customer support, but the service team’s hours are 6 AM to 11 PM and not 24/7.
Newcomers at Extra Spel Casino can potentially claim a trio of treats with their first deposit of £10 or more. Depositing £10 makes you eligible for a 100% bonus of up to 200% plus twenty free spins, but if you deposit £20 or more, you’ll also receive forty free spins on your second day and forty free spins on your third day. The wagering requirements for the bonus and free spins and 35x.
Other promotions are a tad thin on the ground, and when we last checked, there was just the Summer Surprises offer – a four-day promotion offering free spins and deposit bonuses.
Extra Spel runs on Aspire Global software, which is also found at Karamba, Viking Slots, and Prime Slots. It’s an easy-to-use platform that makes it easy to view the various games by categories, and also lets you play in demo money if you’d prefer to try a game out before investing your own money in it.
While there are various references to mobile devices in the FAQ, there’s nowhere that explains how to play games on a mobile device. After checking, we found that there is no iOS or Android app as the Extra Spel Casino website is compatible with both desktop and mobile devices.
Extra Spel Casino is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. The games use a random number generator which has been tested by iTech Labs to ensure fairness, and SSL security is used to protect players’ sensitive data.
Extra Spel offers video slots, classic slots, casino games, and scratch cards which are supplied by the likes of NetEnt, Amaya, NeoGames, and Microgaming. There are nine live dealer games, including Auto Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Blackjack, and Live Immersive Roulette, plus casino games such as Jacks or Better and Roulette Pro.
There’s a lot more choice for slots fans including many new game releases. The current options range from classics like Thunderstruck II and Bars and Bells to more recently added slots such as Dragonz, Prosperity Twin, and Butterfly Staxx.
There are no original games at present, and the lobby contains pretty much the same games that Extra Spel’s sister site, Karamba.
You can use any of the following payment methods: Skrill, Visa, MasterCard, Entropay, Wire Transfer, Paysafecard, Neteller, Giropay, ClickandBuy, Instadebit, UseMyFunds, Maestro, Trustly, Euteller, and Zimpler.
Withdrawal requests are put into ‘pending’ status for 48 hours, after which they are processed within one working day. There are no cash-out fees and you can withdraw as little as £10. However, you can only withdraw £2,000 per week and £3,000 per month unless you’re a VIP with higher limits.
Extra Spel Casino uses the same VIP programme as that of its sister site, Karamba. It consists of seven levels, starting at New Member and ending at Prestige VIP. You are automatically enrolled in the programme once you make your first deposit, and you can get promoted to higher levels by collecting loyalty points when you deposit and play games. The benefits range from invitations to VIP live tournaments, monthly cashback, and personalised offers to free spins, birthday bonuses, and express cash-outs.
Overall, Extra Spel performs well as an online casino, although we’d like to see the selection of table games extended. The real issue with it is that it’s extremely similar to its sister site, Karamba, but without the fun theme and graphics. However, not everyone needs fancy imagery and eye-catching branding to be able to enjoy an online casino. So, it’s certainly worth taking a closer look.
