Northern Lights Casino Review

Updated Nov 13th 2023 By Bret Allen

This website has now closed. Our review will be left up for historical and research purposes.

Northern Lights Casino is a sparkly and unusual site with some quirky games and a big welcome bonus. This is a Nektan site, in a similar vein to Slots Devil. This site has a free £5 on offer to bring new players on board, so will you follow the Northern Lights?

Northern Lights Casino Verdict

Northern Lights Casino has a nice appearance, but this site doesn’t do anything new or special. What does stand out is a good welcome bonus with relatively low terms, plus the game selection is quite varied. New players will certainly find plenty to do here. A few tweaks around the site could be great, but it’s still an enjoyable site as it stands.

Design & Usability

The theme of Northern Lights Casino might confuse at first, but it’s a nice idea. The background features an Arctic skyline with the northern lights, which is obvious from the name, but there’s also a brightly lit fairground. The idea is probably that this site is like a casino, or fair, or party hidden at the ends of the earth! However, the background is only small and changes once you log in, and the art is not used on promotions, so unfortunately that’s as far as the theme goes.

Navigation is no issue, with the usual top bar showing various site areas and your account information. Registration doesn’t take long and then you’re free to explore. This site does follow a pretty standard Nektan layout, so if you’ve used a sister site then you won’t be surprised, but also won’t get lost. Many links open as floating panels, which makes them a little harder to read.

Software & Gameplay

The games lobby simply shows large tiles of games, with a set of tabs for narrowing things down. There’s also a useful search box.

The games load in a flash, transforming the site into an overlay view. The window for the games could be bigger, but it can be resized. The background is unfortunately just a plain black. A deposit link and support link does add some value to this presentation.

Safety & Security

Northern Lights Casino is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission. The site has links to organisations like Gambleaware, with details in the responsible gaming section.

This site uses IBAS to protect players, an independent adjudicator in case of disputes. The site is protected by a security certificate issued by Comodo.

Payments & Withdrawals

Northern Lights Casino accepts payments by MasterCard and Visa cards, PaySafeCard, Trustly, Neteller, Skrill and Boku mobile, which is a pretty good mixture.

The cashier system could be a little easier to follow, with some confusing things like asking for your amount before your method. Still, it’s no challenge and works smoothly. Withdrawals have no fees but there is up to 3 days processing time.

Customer Support

Northern Lights Casino can be reached by live chat, email and telephone. There’s a quick link for live chat on the bottom right of the site, or there’s a support button which opens up contact information. This appeals on a panel and could be better presented, but it’s clear enough.

There are also some FAQs here which will help players will quick issues, but the way they are displayed doesn’t make them easy to search through.

Bonuses & Promotions

New players at Northern Lights Casino can claim a sizeable welcome bonus, split over three deposits. Your first is eligible for a nice 100% up to £100, plus 10 spins. Your second gets a 100% match up to £150 with 25 free spins, and your third gets a 50% bonus up to £250 with a final 65 spin bonus. These are pretty nice offers and they carry a below-average 30x wagering requirement.

The site also offers special deposit bonuses for certain slots. At the time of writing, there was a big £8,500 share to be grabbed for playing a certain slot. So long as these offers update regularly, the site should prove interesting.

Device Compatibility

There are no apps for Northern Lights Casino, but all users with a recent mobile or tablet device should be able to access the mobile version of the site. This can be found by going to the usual address, on a mobile browser.

The mobile casino site looks quite smart, in some ways a bit nicer than the desktop site, as it’s more compact and uncluttered. You will find a full set of games to play, as well as complete account access, so this is fine for a little game on the go.

Variety & Originality

Northern Lights Casino has a reasonable mixture of game providers, with some a little more basic than others, but enough variety to keep things interesting. The biggest provider is NetEnt, who bring Starburst and Drive: Multiplier Mayhem. The site also has several SGI games like Action Bank. Elk Studios provides the new Ivanhoe medieval game and Poltava. Big Time Gaming has Danger High Voltage, plus there are games by IGT. In short, there’s a bit of everything here, including jackpot games.

The table game situation is more limited, unfortunately. Players will find roulette and blackjack, in several variations. Thankfully, the selection is boosted by live dealer games by Extreme, such as Dolphin Roulette.

Loyalty & Rewards

Northern Lights Casino uses the same VIP system as other Nektan sites. This is an invite-only system and rewards players with deposit bonuses, free spins and cashback. The rewards do sound promising, but the site does not give a lot of detail and there’s no mention of a full high roller experience. There are also no loyalty points for regular play.
