Mega Casino Verdict
Mega Casino is a hard site to rate, because most of the good points are also bad points, depending on taste. The site has a quirky approach to design which makes it interesting, but this can also cause a lot of confusion. There are unusual promotions here, which is a nice change, but they can be difficult to understand and find. Having said all that, if you want something different, this is your place. You have a mixture of game providers, a strong VIP offering and some nice welcome bonuses, so it’s well worth visiting.
Design & Usability
This site really lives up to its name. You arrive at Mega Casino to be confronted by a huge, almost full-page graphic from the latest slot, or some photography of casino games. This really is quite impressive, making the most of modern browsers and screens to go high-res. This is surrounded by a grey, black and yellow overlay which covers the top of the page and the right. It’s unusual and bold, but once you log in, you get something else which is less impressive.
Still unusual, the main site is a kind of flash lobby which you navigate with a wheel menu. If you want a site that really stands out, this is ideal. However, it does look a little cramped and many of the links need to open web pages, anyway. You can navigate by clicking one of eight links on the wheel, or some links at the bottom. It’s easy enough once you figure it out, but we were happier with the big, brash home page!
Software & Gameplay
The flash site will open a slots lobby with pretty straightforward navigation. The lobby is quick and has search functions, categories and advanced browsing (for example, sorting by developer).
The games load almost full screen, yet despite the whole flash site setup, they do not get much of an overlay. There’s just a plain black background and a depositing link.
Safety & Security
Mega Casino is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commmission, with full details visible on the site footer. The site also has fairness guaranteed by the iTech Labs, who certify random number generators.
You’ll find good responsible gaming information here with account restrictions you can self-impose. The connection to the main site is not secure, but the cashier is fully protected.
Payments & Withdrawals
The cashier button the flash site opens a pop-up for depositing. Though it can be annoying squinting at a window, the system is pretty easy to use. Withdrawals start at £20 and take a vague 2-7 business days, so expect a wait.
Mega Casino accepts Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Switch and Solo cards. You can also use e-wallets like PayPal, Eco, Skrill and Neteller, or there’s PaySafeCard, SoFort, Citadel Instant Banking and Fast Bank Transfer. A pretty good mixture there and all the main boxes ticked.
You can click the support link on the flash site to get a pop-up window with more information. This offers you an email, phone line and live chat support. There are some basic FAQs and game guides too.
The methods are fine but ‘not always available 24/7’. The team however are friendly enough and keen to help. You should not encounter any major issues here.
Bonuses & Promotions
The promotions page is a carousel of offers, though most say ‘not available today’. Mega Casino entices new players with a simple 100% deposit match, up to £50. This also comes with 25 free spins on Ninja Master. Terms are not that easy to find and you need to wager this bonus 30x before withdrawing. Other promotions are mentioned on the main site, but finding them in-site is another matter.
The site runs daily tournaments, offering spins and cash prizes in various wagering competitions. These are fun and give you a reason to pop back on site, but they may exclude casual players somewhat. You can also buy spin packages, meaning you’re getting more spins for your money. The offers are certainly unusual here, but take some working out.
Mega Casino fails to give information on their mobile site. They do not have any apps, but you actually can log into their site on mobile browsers. This uses the same information as the main site, though it does seem to make you jump a few hoops.
The mobile site looks nice but is awkward to use. Some may prefer it to the desktop site, but it isn’t a strong experience and can even prevent you logging in at times.
Variety & Originality
Mega Casino has a mixed selection of game providers, which always gives a site a more interesting game setup. Here you have access to slot games by Amaya, Merkur Gaming, NextGen, plus some more familiar titles by NetEnt, Williams and Microgaming. Titles like Starburst and Ninja Master stand out. You’ll find over 12 jackpot slots, such as Winstar.
There are two blackjack games, punto banco and five roulettes, so while they are present, they certainly take a backseat to slots. In short, the games a mixed here and you may see some you haven’t played before, but don’t expect endless variety.
Loyalty & Rewards
Mega Casino has a VIP Lounge which offers to make players comfortable and feel pampered! You collect points as you play here, which then translate to membership tiers. You can also convert to cash.
There are six tiers here, up to Red Diamond, which offer many rewards. These include monthly bonuses, higher limits, faster pay-outs, a VIP manager, birthday bonuses and more. You need to maintain your level but the rewards are good. There are also hidden VIP Executive levels which grant huge bonuses, a personal manager, invitations to events and free money for new games. The system actually seems very impressive and should provide the full high roller experience.
