Have you ever dreamed that online casinos could be more like video games? The creators of Duelz did and that is why they wanted to make that dream into a reality. By combining these two styles of gaming, they came up with Duelz Casino.
Duelz Casino is trying to bring something different to the mix when it comes to online casinos. The theme, complete with animated background, will make a nice change from the usual casinos. But it eventually made my laptop (a 2020 MacBook Air) overheat and constantly use the fan. The background music too might be magical but when I learnt I couldn’t turn it off it quickly changed to annoying.
At first glance, things look good and like a breath of fresh air, but the more I spent on the site the more my laptop was crying out for help. The casino itself is very demanding on your processor (be it laptop or mobile device).
Duelz is not your everyday online casino. They do have all the popular slots and table games, but operate a bit differently:
- Play against other players
- Use spells and power-ups to aid you
- Open chests and grab extra rewards
- Collect trophies and rank-up in leagues
Duelz also offers a more traditional casino experience. They have a large selection of games that has something for everyone. You can play like you do elsewhere, but you get more out of the games and earn prizes by trying the extra features.
Duelz casino is built mobile first, so you can be sure that it works perfectly on every device. Duelz goes with you wherever you go.
Duelz Casino is licensed by United Kingdom Gambling Commission and follow the strict rules and regulations for safe and responsible gambling. There are also some cheeky deposit fees (although no withdrawal ones). But probably the biggest downfall here is that the live chat isn’t really of any help. When I spoke to them about my bonus, the customer agent had no idea what to do.
Having said that, I did have an amazing time here. Probably because I kept on getting some really good wins. My £400 withdrawal was sent to my bank account within hours! Yet, I doubt I would ever step foot at Duelz Casino again. I admire them for trying to offer something different to players, but I don’t think innovation should come at the cost of user experience.
New players are greeted with a nice welcome bonus. You get up to £100 of match bonus and 100 bonus spins.
You get your bonus when you make your first deposit on Duelz.
- 100% deposit bonus up to £100 and 100 bonus spins
Bonus Spins are given to you in batches of 20 spins and are for Book of Dead. You get the first batch when you deposit and the rest in the next four days.
Whilst depositing is straightforward, claiming your bonus isn’t as much. First up, I went to my bonus section and read through the bonus details, I then went to deposit and only after I finalised my deposit did the system tell me that I deposited without using a bonus.
I contacted customer care and the rep had no idea what to do. After wasting 30 mins on live chat he said he would forward my request to another department who would get in touch via email. I never received an email and with a heavy heart I gave up on the welcome bonus. The last thing I wanted was to spend yet another 30 minutes on their live chat.
The 30x wagering requirement for both bonus money and the deposit it came from is way above the industry standards, and basically undoable. This is the reason why I didn't end up liking the offer.
Duelz also offers a 10% cashback on losses every Friday. This comes with no strings attached and is quite attractive as an offer.
They also have an internal league system - aptly called Duels - that is a 1v1 duel against an opponent using a single payline slot mechanic. You bet your own money and you get to win if you manage to make any combinations. Depending on how you do, you are then placed on a leaderboard that pays out daily, weekly and monthly.

Duelz has a massive selection of different casino games. On Duelz, you get to play slots, table games and live casino games.
You get to enjoy games from the most popular developers in the world. Play'n GO, NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, Big Time Gaming and Microgaming just to name a few. Their live games are courtesy of Evolution.
Slot-wise there is a nice selection of games to choose from here. There is an interesting choice of categories side by side the usual ‘new’, ‘top picks’, ‘megaways’, etc. The problem is that I wasn’t able to access these on desktop as I couldn’t scroll sideways.
A search bar is also available and it will bring up any slots matching the word you are using. However, you cannot search via provider which is a real shame. There is a vast choice of slots and sometimes I just want to browse through the provider’s offerings.
Players on Duelz love new games. Many slots in the popular games list are new releases, but there are some classics in there as well. Games like Starburst and Book of Dead get played a lot. You can also find some of the greatest jackpot games on Duelz, like Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune and Sisters of Oz WowPot. Our table games section has all the traditional games available, like roulette, blackjack and baccarat.
The game selection is divided into multiple categories. Those will help you browse through our games and find what you are looking for. Maybe you'd like to play a game set in ancient Egypt, or maybe want a game that has sticky wilds, or how about a Megaways game? All of these are categories you can use to find the right game.

Duelz goes with you right there in your pocket. As long as you can connect to the Internet, you can play at Duelz.
The casino behaved a lot better when I accessed it through the Chrome app of an iOS device. It was slightly faster than desktop and to my surprise, I found you could also turn the sound off.
Games loaded quicker as well although, when I was playing Infectious xWays my phone went really hot. So whilst the game (which is very graphics-intensive) didn’t get stuck as it did on desktop, it did make my phone’s processor burn up. Even when I played less intensive games my phone was getting quite warm, and this also means it can be a drain on a player’s battery too.

I got in touch with support to try and get my welcome bonus.
As soon as I started the chat the agent asked for my phone number, date of birth and email address even though I was logged in. This already started ringing alarm bells as it shows that they do not have in-house support. The support rep was courteous but they were so slow, especially considering this is a straightforward bonus question. After 30 minutes of waiting the agent couldn’t help and told me they will inform the relevant department.
Live chat is available but that’s about it. I couldn’t find any more information about the times this is live. I couldn’t even find any general FAQs for self-help or even an email where you can send your queries to.

- Proof of identity - ID, passport or other official idenfication method
- Proof of address - utility bill or other such document
- Proof of deposit - Picture of credit card, screenshot of online bank, etc.
Duelz has a wide array of deposit and withdrawal methods available for our players. Some methods are available only for players in certain countries. Pick your favourite and enjoy gaming.
The minimum deposit is £20 and the minimum withdrawal is also £20.
I deposited £40 using a debit card. The process was simple although I don’t like that there is no mention of the bonus anywhere. I thought this would automatically be assigned but it wasn’t and I’m still none the wiser about how to go about receiving the welcome bonus. I am sure I clicked on ‘claim’ but I think I refreshed and this might have messed up the process.
Apart from this, there is a £1 fee when depositing. This was a complete surprise and was only mentioned after the deposit was complete.
Weirdly enough there were no withdrawal charges. But I did have a little shock when I completed my withdrawal. I inserted the amount and chose the method and clicked withdraw only for the system to take me back to the lobby with my balance at £0. Thankfully, the withdrawal information can be found when clicking the avatar and going to ‘pending withdrawals.’ To my surprise, the money was in my account the next day, around 12 hours later.
