iGame is an online casino that was established in 2011 by the team behind Unibet, Trannel International Ltd. It offers a broad range of games from Quickspin, NetEnt, Play’n GO, ELK Studios, Microgaming, NextGen, Thunderkick, and Push Gaming, as well as casino tournaments. However, as it’s only licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and does not appear to accept UK players, is it more a case or No Game than iGame?
iGame’s website is professionally designed, and it’s very easy to take in the pertinent information as you’re not visually overwhelmed. The main menu (which consists of just three tabs (Games, Promotions, and Tournaments), sits against a smart white background across the top of the homepage, and the large graphic underneath displays the current welcome offer.
To sign-in or sign-up, all you need to do is click on the relevant buttons at the top-right. Scroll further down the homepage, and you’ll find the games lobby which is divided into various game categories, as well as a mini-list of the latest winners. More information such as the current promotions, live chat support hours, and SSL encryption can be found at the very bottom of the site.
The support team is available via online contact form or live chat, the latter of which operates between 8 AM and midnight from Monday to Saturday only.
You can enjoy 150 free spins to use on the Fire Joker slot without having to even make a deposit at iGame. Just verify your account, and you’ll receive fifteen daily free spins over the next ten days, but please be aware that they come with a hefty 50x wagering requirement.
Although the welcome bonus for funded players looks attractive at first glance, it also has 50x wagering requirements. On your first four deposits each of £10 or more, you can claim a 200% bonus (up to £50), a 25% bonus (up to £500), a 25% bonus (up to £400), and a 100% bonus (up to £50) respectively.
The site’s casino tournaments offer prize pools that range from £300 to £30,000, and there are rewards for achieving the biggest win, the most bet rounds, and the biggest multiplier on your bet.
There are also Daily Deals which allow you to qualify for bonuses and free spins, plus you can get up to £500 of free bonus funds by referring your friends to the casino.
iGame uses proprietary software with an easy-to-use interface. The lobby displays the games via thumbnails, and each game can be played in fun or real-money mode by hovering your mouse over it and picking the desired option. You can also search for games or use the categories to filter by Slots, Recommended, Live Casino, Jackpots, Table Games, and Video Poker.
Although it’s not referred to anywhere, iGame has a mobile-optimised website that allows you to play using a tablet or smartphone. It has a very similar look and feel to the desktop site, and just as many games to choose from.
iGame is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, and it uses an RNG (random number generator) plus SSL encryption to ensure its games are fair and its players are kept safe. However, as the operator does not hold a UK Gambling Commission license, you will not be covered/protected for any withdrawals or deposits that you make at the casino.
Bar the lack of any exclusive titles, iGame does a great job of covering all the bases when it comes to game variety. There are popular slots like Asgardian Stones, Dead or Alive, Starburst, and Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, along with a host of jackpot slots such as Arabian Nights, Fruit Bonanza, Mega Moolah, and Mega Fortune Dreams.
If you prefer to play card and table games, you can either head to the Live Casino to play Casino Hold’em, Live Roulette, Money Wheel, Three Card Poker, Blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, and Dragon Poker or the Table Games area which features Roulette, Classic 5-Hand Blackjack, Double Ball Roulette, Blackjack Double Exposure, and many more.
Furthermore, there are ten video poker games to discover, including Joker Wild, Pile Poker, Jackpot Poker, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, and Joker Poker Power Poker.
The banking options at iGame include Visa, Paysafecard, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Maestro, Solo, Entercash, Direct Bank Transfer, and WebMoney. Withdrawals are processed particularly quickly, taking an average of 0 to 5 hours.
The lack of information regarding a VIP scheme or comp points programme leads us to believe that no such rewards are available.
While iGame is a European-facing online casino with an excellent line-up of different game types, the fact that it doesn’t cater for UK players is disappointing. However, when you consider the fact that it has high bonus wagering requirements and seems to lack any form of VIP/loyalty scheme, maybe UK players are better off left in the dark.
