Oddsking is the brainchild of Petfre Ltd., the owner of Betfred and Totesport. However, unlike its sister sites, it concentrates purely on slots and casino games and not sports betting.
The site launched in early 2018 with a mission to “become your number 1 online entertainment provider”. The main benefits that are on offer to members are 24/7 customer support, wager-free free spins for first-time depositors, low minimum withdrawals, and plenty of popular and newly-released slot games.
But, will Oddsking become your number one destination for online gaming?
The black background is jazzed up by the white and gold menu and banners that are also used in the brand logo.
At the time of writing, the free spins that are up for grabs courtesy of the welcome offer can be used on Yggdrasil’s Vikings Go Berzerk, and the advert uses a dramatic backdrop of rain plummeting down from the dark skies above into a raging sea.
When you’re logged in, you can see the current time at the top of the screen, as well as your available balance. If you wish to make any changes to your account details or make a quick deposit, you can easily do so using the buttons provided.
There’s no need to go hunting for the games, as a search box is provided on the homepage, and underneath it, you can view a selection of top games and new games.
The menu system runs horizontally along the top of the website, offering you a choice of pages including Promotions, New Games, Slots, and More.
The only thing that appears to be missing is a brief introduction to Oddsking.
The dedicated customer service team are available 24/7 via live chat, email, telephone, and post. There’s also a Help page which is divided into several categories such as Registration, Payments, Promotions, Complaints, and Account.
While the welcome offer is not to be knocked, it’s the only special offer that appears on the site, which leaves us wondering whether the operator intends to add more promotions in the future.
If you’d like to claim fifty free spins for Vikings Go Berzerk, simply deposit and stake at least £10 across five or more rounds on any game within seven days of registering. The free spins are valued at 25p each, and any winnings are paid to you as withdrawable cash with zero wagering requirements.
Oddsking uses bespoke software that sadly doesn’t give you the option to try games for free in demo mode. You can, however, save particular games as favourites, and any titles that you play come with a section on the right-hand side that shows you the minimum/maximum stakes, number of paylines, game provider, and RTP. You can also play titles in full-screen mode by clicking the arrow buttons at the bottom-right.
On the FAQ page, Oddsking confirms that the majority of its games can be enjoyed on both web and mobile. To get started, you simply log into your account or sign up via your smartphone or tablet’s internet browser. However, if you prefer, you can download the OddsKing app for iPhone and iPad from iTunes or the Android version from GooglePlay.
Oddsking is regulated and licensed by both the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar.
Both the game software and the Random Number Generator (RNG) have undergone and passed external compliance testing.
The website also uses Trustwave SSL encryption to keep your data secure when you’re online.
In a similar way to its sister casino sites (Totesport Games and Betfred Games), Oddsking offers a much smaller selection of titles than most online casinos. At the time of writing, only seventy-five games are available, all of which are slots.
There are plenty of popular titles including Foxin’ Wins Football Fever, A Dragon’s Story, 300 Shields, Bonanza, and Cash Stampede, although we could only find a couple of jackpot slots (N.B., Ozwin’s Jackpots and Stellar Jackpots with Dolphin Gold).
If OddsKing was a sports betting site, we could understand there being less slots and casino games on offer. But, as it’s an online casino in its own right, it seems strange to stock so few titles.
Currently, Oddsking only allows you to fund your account using Visa, MasterCard or Maestro.
The minimum deposit that you can make to your account is £5, and the same amount applies for withdrawals. Withdrawal requests can take up to forty-eight hours to be processed.
We were unable to find any evidence of a VIP or loyalty programme for customers of Oddsking.
While Oddsking is backed by Betfred and Totesport’s operator, and offers excellent 24/7 support, the site would benefit from a larger range of games, more promotions, and a loyalty programme if it wishes to compete with other major online casino brands.
However, the wager-free welcome offer is a great opportunity to try the site out for size. So, if you’re curious to find out more about Oddsking, why not take a closer look?
