What we recommend instead
GoWin Casino Verdict
Go Win Casino is an attractive site with a great range of games, although some players may find there are too few card and table games for their liking. While it’s similar to other Nektan brands in its games and promotions, Go Win makes efforts to rise above its sister sites by hosting a blog and running exclusive competitions on its Facebook page.
Design & Usability
Simplicity is key to the design of the Go Win Casino website. Without appearing dull in the slightest, it manages to gain your attention with its understated blue-and-white colour scheme, and high-quality images of slot game characters like the Warlords and Gonzo stood on top of roulette wheels and mobile phones. In fact, Go Win Casino tries very hard (and succeeds) in promoting the fact that its games can be enjoyed on-the-move, even though (as in the case with all Netkan casinos) you can also play via a home computer.
The homepage allows you to browse the lobby, although you can also just watch as the slideshow takes you through a selection of games while simultaneously showing you their RTPs, number of paylines, and minimum and maximum bets.
Finding your way around is a doddle thanks to the main menu system, which lets you visit pages like Promotions, Help, Blog, and Games.
Software & Gameplay
The Nektan software makes it easy to find the kind of games you enjoy most by dividing the lobby into various categories like Jackpots, Casino Games, New Games, and Instant Wins. However, it doesn’t contain one of the most useful tabs – Slots. The games launch in a separate window which you can enlarge to full-screen, and there are clickable icons that allow you to change to a different game or make a deposit.
Safety & Security
Go Win Casino is regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. The site’s footer not only contains this information, but also links to responsible gaming advice and other policies. All payments are encrypted and a random number generator ensures fairness.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can use any of the following payment methods: MasterCard, Visa, Visa Electron, Maestro, Zimpler, Paysafecard, Boku (Pay by Mobile), Trustly, Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, Neteller, Giropay, iDEAL, and Sofort. Although a wide number of banking methods are available, it would be good to see Paypal, Wire Transfer, and Entropay on offer.
The casino never charges any deposit or withdrawal fees, and the minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are both £10. However, you can only submit one withdrawal request per 24-hour period. Withdrawals can take up to 72 hours to be processed, and from there on in, it can take a further three to five working days to receive your funds.
At present, Go Win Casino doesn’t offer a live chat service. So, you can only get in contact via email, post, or telephone. The telephone line is manned from 9 AM until midnight from Monday to Friday. While we can forgo live chat, we really feel that some form of support should be available 24/7.
Bonuses & Promotions
Go Win Casino offers newcomers a gargantuan welcome package which lets you qualify for up to £850 of bonus funds plus fifty free spins. The promotion is awarded across your first three deposits of £10 or more as follows: first deposit = 200% up to £100 and 50 free spins; second deposit = 100% up to £250; third deposit = 50% up to £500. All three bonuses come with relatively low 30x wagering requirements.
There’s a mixed bag of offers that can be availed throughout the week, such a Deposit Match Tuesday, Free Spins Thursday, and Choose Your Match Weekend. But, what makes Go Win Casino a bit more special than other Nektan casinos is its Facebook competition page. As the brand reaches a specific number of ‘likes’, it’s giving out prizes such as £100 Amazon vouchers, a PS4, a Chromecast, and a VR headset.
Go Win Casino shouts about its mobile casino from the rooftops, and provides a link to the iOS app, but also explains that you can play via its main website which is fully compatible with nearly all mobile devices.
Variety & Originality
Multiple software providers provide the games selection, including NextGen, NetEnt, IGT, and Microgaming.
There are top slots like The 100,000 Pyramid, Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Foxin’ Wins, Rainbow Riches, MegaJackpots Cleopatra, and Spartacus – Gladiator of Rome, as well as newly released slots which are added on a weekly basis.
Live dealer games are provided by Extreme Live Gaming, and there’s also a handful of non-live card and table games such as Roulette, Blackjack, and Blackjack Classic, plus several scratch cards.
Although the games collection cannot be called original as it’s identical to other Nektan casinos, the fact that Go Win Casino has its own blog (which is regularly updated and features a wide range of topical articles) gives it a leg-up over the competition.
Loyalty & Rewards
There’s not a lot of information regarding the VIP programme, which is called Privileged, as it’s an invitation-only scheme. The VIP page does state that Privileged members are entitled to four key perks: free spins, deposit rewards, weekly bonuses, and cashback offers, and that you can apply to become a VIP if you think you qualify.
