Bonzo Spins online Casino is a mobile casino gaming company bringing games, prizes, an more straight to player’s mobile phones. The parent company, Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited, is unsurprisingly licensed by the government of Gibraltar, as well as the UK gambling commission. Being based in the UK, Bonzo Spins is unavailable in the US, and other areas with stricter gambling laws. Clicking on a game in one of these areas will give the message “this feature is currently unavailable in your region,” and it won’t even let people see the demo.
However, for players who live in areas where online gambling laws allow for online casinos and game rooms, Bonzo Spins has a lot to offer. They also take a variety of payment methods such as PayPal, credit cards, Paysafecard, and more, making it easy to get in on the action regardless of how people want to pay.
When You Visit
The first thing players will likely notice when visiting Bonzo Spins is how bright and colorful their home page is. In fact, it is a bit of sensory overload, but not necessarily in a bad way. It really does give one the feel of a true casino, even if it is online.
As for the navigation, it isn’t bad per-say, but it is a pain to look at. The bright neon aqua and turquoise color scheme of the menu bring up memories of the 80s in the US, only done with much less aesthetic in this case, and more annoyance. The good news is that the navigation itself is very clear and easy to understand and divided into handy categories such as game providers, types of wins (big wins, frequent wins, and regular wins), and flags such as “hot games,” and “new games.”
The game section itself is chaotic, but in a way that really gets players excited. It showcases well designed thumbnails of the various games, and will give a demo if clicked on (as long as players don’t live in a region where it is prohibited). Above all this is the header area showcasing new games like the “Wild-O-Tron 3000,” and special events, like the Nutcracker daily prize event for December.
Contrasting all this color and excitement is the rather bland background featuring generic abstract designs with the occasional gambling related object such as a diamond, or strawberry that would likely be found on a slot machine. While it does look cheap, the background actually serves to help highlight the bright and enticing game section of the page that a more elaborate background would likely distract from.
Something that should definitely be mentioned is that the main page is essentially the only page. Clicking on the navigation will just filter the games, allowing players to find what they need instead of having to go from one section to another. This was obviously designed with mobile in mind, and does a great job of keeping players from getting lost. At the bottom of the page there are links for things like a FAQ and Terms of Service, but these just open a pop up window. Again, a great feature for mobile.
Overall the look and feel of Bonzo Spins is quite attractive other than the horrible menu colors. Navigation is quick, clean, and easy, and all the games are presented in a fun and exciting manner. Overall it’s about average as far as mobile casino sites go.
Bonuses & Promotions
As with any online casino/gaming site, Bonzo Spins has many bonuses and promotions that players can take advantage of to maximize their play. They even have seasonal/special event style promotions such as their Christmas Marathon promotion in which a large sum is given away to player who complete objectives in certain games. There is also the VIP exclusive seasonal event The Nutcracker which offers daily prizes.
There are also promo codes that can be used to get extra spins when making deposits. For example, at the time of this writing the code BONZO gets a person 25 extra spins on the first deposit, while BONZ02 grants 25 for a second deposit. This goes all the way up to the fourth deposit, giving a total of 100 extra spins.
Another type of bonus that Bonzo Spins offers is their Booster Bonus 50. This bonus matches up 50% of winnings up to a certain amount, on certain days. This can be a good options for players who like to schedule their play time carefully.
As previously mentioned Bonzo Spins is very focused on mobile gaming. While it can be accessed from a desktop, the design of the site is clearly focused towards being used on a mobile device. This was a smart choice as these kinds of online games can be played more conveniently from mobile devices.
Another factor to consider is the fact that mobile gaming in general is statistically more popular with women than with men. With casino style gaming finding its way into the mobile sphere, this has opened up the door for entities like Bonzo Spins to introduce their games to a new audience.
Bonzo Spins has a ton of games. From traditional games such as blackjack and roulette to themed games such as Cleopatra and Epic Journey. In many cases, the themed games take the form of slots with special gimmicks, rules, and graphics, drawing the player in, and giving them an unique experience.
On top of this, there are also games that themed after well known IPs, such as Baywatch, Jurassic World, and Playboy. There’s a large enough variety of games to choose from that everyone can find something that they will enjoy.
When it comes to providers, Bonzo also has a large selection. Microgaming, Red Tiger, and Pragmatic are just a few of the providers they have on hand. Each provider has its own lineup of games, such as the more traditional casino games by Evolution, and the nature themed games of IGT like 100 Pandas.
Deposits and Withdrawals
As far as deposits go at Bonzo Spins, there are several options that players can choose from. The first thing a person must do is create an account. After logging in, they can then select the “deposit” option from the menu, and then select their preferred payment option. As mentioned before, there are many payment options to choose from. After going through the steps following the on-screen instructions, players will find the funds in their account and can use them to play.
In most cases making a deposit doesn’t cost anything, however there is one exception: Boku. If Boku is being used for mobile deposits, it takes a 15% transaction fee. This means that the amount that appears in a player’s Bonzo Spins account will be 15% less than the amount they pay. Boku also requires a minimum deposit of $18.85.
A popular alternative to Boku would be Paysafecard. These can be purchased at sales outlets, and let a person make deposits without the additional fees, and without having a bank account/credit card. They are available in various amounts, though the minimum purchase is $12.57.
Withdrawing money at Bonzo Spins is simple, but you only get one withdrawal per 24 hours. This can be done through your account by clicking on transactions, then withdraw. The minimum is $31.42 while the maximum is $2513.51. Processing can take up to 3 working days as the withdrawal is checked before processing, and may be reviewed by Bonzo Spin’s fraud team. This can take additional time and may require you to submit identification to verify your identity. This is both to prevent people from stealing from Bonzo Spins, and to prevent players from having their earnings stolen.
It should also be mentioned that while you can change your payment methods, all winnings must be withdrawn to the same payment option that was used to make the initial deposit according to AML rules. This means that players should not recklessly change payment options while they still have winnings in their account.
Bonzo Spins has a variety of methods to help players who are having difficulties, or who simply have questions about their service. The first and most obvious is their FAQ, which answers frequently asked questions concerning topics like withdrawals, account creation, and deposits.
Additional support can be found by getting in contact with their customer service team. This can be done through email, or by phone, both of which can be found on the main page under the “Support” link. There is also a “Live Help” feature as well for those who need immediate assistance.
While the games at Bonzo Spins can be accessed at any time, it should be mentioned that customer service via the phone can only be accessed between the hours of 8:00 to 00:00 GMT/BST.
