What we recommend instead
OVO Casino Verdict
It’s obvious that a lot of thought and effort has been put into the appearance and player experience at OVO Casino. It’s just a shame that the site isn’t licensed for UK players, and there are very few promotions to take advantage of.
Design & Usability
On the “About OVO” page, it says players can expect a “chic, slick, 1960s-themed swinging casino”, and while we agree on the chic and slick claims, we’re not convinced that it resembles anything from the sixties.
If anything, it looks like it's trying to appeal to stylish players who enjoy getting dressed up and going out for nice meals, to the cinema, and to their local casino. It features images of a suited and booted forty-something gentleman and his girlfriend, and uses a smart black background with contrasts of bronze and white.
As well as looking attractive, OVO Casino is very nicely designed. It’s easy to see where to login and register, get help, and view the current welcome offer and latest attractions. The menu is stored away via an expandable button at the top-left, which allows you to view the various game categories, promotions, cashier, and OVO Store.
Software & Gameplay
OVO Casino is powered by Greentube software, which you’ll also find in use at online casino brands like Kaboo, Casumo, Videoslots Casino, and Energy Casino.
All of the games can be played directly through your web browser without the need to download special software. You will, however, need Adobe Flash installed if you want to play on a desktop or laptop.
The software is seamless and speedy, and allows you to test drive games in demo mode.
Safety & Security
While OVO Casino is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, it does not hold a UK Gambling Commission license. Its terms and conditions indicate that UK players are welcome as only the USA is mentioned as being a restricted country.
Although the site uses HTTPS, we were unable to find any information regarding SSL security or a Random Number Generator.
Payments & Withdrawals
You can use any of the following banking methods at OVO Casino: Paypal, Trustly, Neteller, Skrill, MasterCard, Visa, Paysafecard, Bank Transfer, Skrill 1-Tap, Giropay, and Entercash.
The minimum and maximum you can withdraw are £10 and £20,000 respectively. Withdrawal requests are typically processed within 24 hours, but can take up to 72 hours.
OVO Casino offers players support via email, live chat, telephone, and online contact form.
Live Chat is available between 9 AM and 10 PM from Monday to Wednesday, between 9 AM and 6 PM on Thursday, between midnight and 10 PM on Friday, and between midday and 7 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome bonus at OVO Casino lets you claim a 100% bonus of up to £1,000 when you make your first deposit of up to £1,000. Alternatively, you can opt for a £20 bonus when you deposit just £10. Both the welcome bonus and other bonuses are subject to a 40x wagering requirement.
At present, the above special offers are the only promotions listed on the website.
Under the FAQ, there’s a section called “Can I play on a mobile device?” and the answer that’s given is yes. No additional software or installation is required as OVO Casino takes advantage of HTML5 technology that lets you move seamlessly between your desktop/laptop and mobile device using a web browser.
Variety & Originality
There are many different online slots available, including many popular Novomatic titles such as Dolphin’s Pearl, Pharaoh’s Tomb, Lord of the Ocean, Sizzling Hot, Mystic Secrets, and Book of Ra. You’ll also find a number of NetEnt video slots such as Twin Spin, Jack Hammer, Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk, Piggy Riches, and Gonzo’s Quest.
The table games collection is considerably smaller, and lets you choose between Blackjack, Royal Crown Blackjack, European Roulette, Roulette Multi-Ball, Vegas Roulette, Roulette, American Poker II, Jacks or Better, Joker Wild, Deuces Wild, Mystery Roulette, and Baccarat.
The live dealer tables support multiple languages and offer both low and high-stakes versions of Blackjack and Roulette, as well as Rocket Roulette and Auto Roulette.
Finally, there’s a good stock of jackpot games including Extreme Riches, Chilli Heat, Golden Sevens, Mega Fortune, Garden of Riches, Book of Ra Jackpot Edition, and Bruno Bingo.
Loyalty & Rewards
OVO Casino rewards its members with OVO Points when they play their favourite games at the casino. Points can be exchanged in the loyalty store for goodies like Amazon gift cards, Apple iPad Airs, Apple Watches, flat-screen TVs, Playstations, Kindles, and iPhones.
