K8 Casino verdict

Not to be confused with the film K9 is K8 – an EveryMatrix-powered online casino which also boasts sports betting, in-play and live dealer online portals. Inside K8, you’ll find a choice of more than 550 games, the majority of which are fully mobile-compatible, and the brand’s Twitter and Facebook social media accounts help members to keep bang up-to-date with the latest site announcements and promotions. But, the big question is, will you love or hate K8?

design & Usability

By default, the website defaults to the K8 homepage which is occupied by mammoth ads for the sports betting and casino welcome offers. By clicking the “Games” link on the top menu, you’ll be taken to the online casino which is particularly colourful thanks to an over-sized advert for one of the site’s software suppliers, Tom Horn Gaming.

The K8 logo uses a gold crown and playing card suits to represent (we guess) the King picture card and table games. The main navigational menu is clearly visible as it’s bright blue with white writing across it, and it not only contains the different K8 portals such as in-play and live dealer, but also the promotions.

The language settings at the top-right allow you to select either English or Cantonese, and above it, there are two buttons that let you Login or Join.

A live chat launch icon sits at the bottom of the page, and is designed to stay there even when you scroll up or down.

customer Support

The support hours are not published, but the K8 team can be contacted via live chat, email or online contact form, and if you use the email or online contact form options, you can expect a response within 24 hours. There’s also a useful Help section which is split into several categories such as Financial, Security, Deposit, Registration, Bonuses, and Casino.

bonuses & Promotions

K8 currently offers first-time depositors a 100% welcome bonus worth up to £100. To claim it, you must deposit at least £10 to your new account, and before you can cash-out any bonus winnings, you must play through both the bonus and qualifying deposit amount thirty times.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many other casino-related promotions to take advantage of, although it’s worth knowing that the sports betting site has a welcome offer too plus a free bets offer.

We did manage to find a cashback offer for the live casino portal, but according to the terms and conditions, it’s only available during June 2018.

software & Gameplay

K8 is powered by EveryMatrix software, which gives you access to an extensive choice of titles from Microgaming, Quickspin, Play’n GO, NextGen, Genii, 1x2 Gaming, Playson, Tom Horn, NetEnt, WMS, NYX Interactive, and Evolution Gaming. The lobby lets you filter by A to Z or Popularity, and there’s also a search box plus tabs for the different game types. Some games can be played in demo mode without the need for a K8 account, but not all. You can play games full-screen, and easily swap between “Play for Fun” or “Play to Win” using the links at the bottom-left.

device Compatibility

As the Technical section of the Help page explains, all mobile devices that can display a webpage are compatible with the K8 website, and there are also mobile apps available for Android and iOS devices.

safety & Security

K8 is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. SSL encryption is used to ensure that your details are kept safe and secure, and all of the games have been tested for fairness by TST or eCOGRA. The site’s average payout is 97%.

variety & Originality

With over 550 games at your disposal, variety is certainly not an issue.

Slots occupy the majority of the lobby, and include Jumanji, Starburst, Red Lights, Dracula, Top Strike Championship, Archangels Salvation, Jurassic World, Black Mummy, Thrones of Persia, Funky Chicken, Monster Madness, and Samurai Ken. While there are some jackpot slots available such as Hall of Gods, they’re thrown in with the video slots, which makes them hard to find.

At present, there are fourteen table games to enjoy, including Baccarat, French Roulette, Punto Banco, Casino Hold’em, Red Dog Progressive, Blackjack Double Exposure, and Roulette Advanced.

In addition, there are fourteen titles listed under “Other Games”, including Lucky Scratch, Virtual Champions, Monkey Keno, Frozen Diamonds, 1 Hand Joker Wild, Lucky 8 Line, Double Joker Poker, and Jackpot 6000.

Furthermore, if you visit the Live Casino, you’ll find an array of tables hosting live baccarat, roulette, blackjack, Casino Hold’em, Texas Hold’em, and Three Card Poker.

payments & Withdrawals

The payment methods are limited to Visa, Skrill, iDEAL, Maestro, MasterCard, Maestro, Neteller, and Bank Transfer. Withdrawal processing takes between 24 and 48 hours, and you can deposit or withdraw £10 or more per transaction without incurring any fees.

VIP Programme

When you play games with real money at K8 Casino, you earn FPPs (Frequent Player Points). Different game types award FPPs at different rates. Every 100 points is worth £1. It’s a very basic way to reward players for their loyalty, but still, it’s better than no loyalty scheme at all.

conclusion

If you’re looking to combine playing online slots with sports and in-play betting, K8 offers you the best of both worlds. But, if you’re solely interested in online casino games, the basic loyalty rewards and lack of promotions may be a deal-breaker.
