What we recommend instead
Fun Casino Verdict
The three major advantages that Fun Casino has over its rivals is its vast choice of games (N.B., over 450 titles and rising), its 24/7, 365-days-a-year customer service, and its extremely fast payouts. However, we won’t be completely won over until the wagering requirements are lowered, a dedicated VIP system is introduced, and there are more ongoing promotions added.
Design & Usability
Fun Casino uses eye-catching colours to draw your attention to its feast of games. However, on desktops, the website is so wide that it takes a few seconds for your eyes to decide which section to focus on.
The site’s mascot is a smiley blue alien (or its head, to be precise) who appears all around the website. Right at the top, you can view a scrolling list of recent winners, and there’s also the option to change the default language, log-in, register, and view the current date and time.
When you first visit the site, you are greeted with the welcome bonus banner, but any subsequent visits will replace that banner with a search box that lets you look for your favourite games. The lobby takes up most of the space on the homepage, and it comes with multiple tabs for the different game types. It’s also strange (but not necessarily a bad thing) that there’s no top menu system; instead, you’ll find it fixed to the bottom of the site where it uses icons to distinguish between the various pages such as Contact Us, My Account, and Payments. However, to view the welcome bonus, FAQ and promotions, you have to scroll right down to almost the bottom of the page and look for the white menu bar.
Software & Gameplay
Fun Casino uses NetEnt software, which is one of the most sought-after software platforms among online casino operators. It’s exceptionally easy to navigate, offers a broad choice of games, a suite of NetEnt live dealer tables, and a smooth and reliable playing experience. Although, there aren’t any unique games, one of the casino’s biggest benefits is that it’s instant-play and, therefore, doesn’t require installation to your desktop or laptop.
Safety & Security
Fun Casino is regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gambling Authority. Information on privacy, safety, and responsible gaming is provided via links at the bottom of the website, and the introductory text on the homepage explains that random number generator software is used to ensure fairness while SSL encryption secures all financial transactions.
Payments & Withdrawals
Fun Casino accepts the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, Giropay, Sofort, EcoPayz, Bank Transfer, and Zimpler, although it would good to see Paypal made available.
The minimum deposit value is £10 and the minimum withdrawal value is £20. It’s impressive that thanks to the “lightning-fast payouts” offered by Fun Casino, you should receive your requested funds within 24 hours.
24/7, 7-days-a-week customer service is a big selling point for Fun Casino, and you can get in touch via online contact form, telephone, live chat or email.
Bonuses & Promotions
New players at Fun Casino can get a 100% bonus on their first deposit up to £123, which is a great offer that is sadly ruined by the 50x wagering requirements that you must meet before you can withdraw any winnings.
However, Fun does offer 10% cashback on all lost deposits, which is credited to you as cash with no wagering requirements!
While the website is lacking a dedicated promotion page, Fun Casino does run slots tournament often, details of which can be found in any game screen.
Despite the lack of a dedicated page about mobile devices, the FAQ state that you can play games, including live casino games on tablets and mobile phones. Having checked that Fun Casino doesn’t offer an Android or iOS mobile app, we visit the Fun Casino website using our Android web browser and can confirm that it seems to work perfectly well.
Variety & Originality
The four main software suppliers are NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Amatic, and Microgaming.
The lobby gives you a choice of eight game categories: Popular, Jackpots, Video Slots, Slots, Live Casino, Table Games, Video Poker, and Other Games. Below, we’ve included some examples of the titles you’ll find within each category:
- Popular – All Ways Win, Joker Pro, Wild Wild West, Arising Phoenix, and Admiral Nelson;
- Jackpots – Mega Moolah Isis, Hall of Gods, Divine Fortune, Mega Joker, and Arabian Nights;
- Video Slots – 108 Heroes, Agent Jane Blonde, Big Bang, Magic Idol, and Reel Rush;
- Slots – Cosmic Cat, Bells on Fire, Hot Seven, Triple Magic, and Roman Riches;
- Live Casino – Auto-Roulette VIP, Blackjack, Live Caribbean Stud Poker, French Roulette Gold, and Baccarat;
- Table Games – American Roulette, Blackjack Single Deck, Casino Hold’em, Pontoon Pro, and Red Dog;
- Video Poker – All Aces Poker, Deuces Wild Double-Up, All American, Jacks or Better Multi-Hand, and Tens or Better;
Other Games – Big Break, Cashapillar Scratch, Bubble Bonanza, Four by Four, and Hexaline.
Loyalty & Rewards
While there doesn't appear to be any type of VIP or loyalty scheme available, Fun Casino monitors player activity daily to pick VIPs and potential VIPs out to contact them directly. This is an interesting approach that moves away from the 'one size fits all' VIP programme we are used to seeing.
