Hello Casino shows off its arsenal of impressive games as soon as you land on the sharp and slick-looking website. Putting good looks aside, this casino operator gets top marks across support, banking, mobile play and bonusing.
The homepage does a great job of homing a large amount of content. The brand style and images ensure the site doesn’t come across cluttered and busy. The first banner promotes responsible gaming, beneath the banner is a timer so you can see your session duration and a button to set a playing reminder. I’m a big fan of social responsibility and love it when casinos throw it in the player’s face. Well played Hello Casino.
There is no top bar navigation menu, only a small hamburger menu in the top left of the page. This is the pathway to your account, promotions, support and more. This approach to site navigation works well, keeping all the games in site with no need to direct me away. A simple three-step sign up process made me a customer with little effort. Once registration was completed I had to verify my email.
I can only praise the user experience of Hello Casino. I could work my way around the site without feeling overwhelmed by menus and CTAs. Top marks!
Say ‘Hello’ to a fantastic welcome bonus worth £100 + 100 bonus spins. Make a minimum deposit of £10 to claim the following:
- 1st deposit : 100% match bonus up to £100 + 100 bonus spins on Gonzo’s Quest/Starburst
To get started at Hello Casino, you need to follow the below steps:
- Sign up for a Hello Casino account
- Verify your account by email
- Make a minimum deposit of £10
- Your account will be credited with your welcome offer
As a new player, I could claim double on my first deposit up to £100 and get 25 Free Spins on Gonzo’s Quest or Twin Spin. This bonus is tied to a 35X wagering restriction which is right on the industry average. This is a fair and enticing welcome bonus so I decided to take it up. I got £40 back in bonus funds from my deposit which went into the bonus balance. This bonus can be claimed with a deposit of £10 or more and must be used within 30 days.
I picked Twin Spin to play my spins on and won a sweet £6.39 from the 25 spins which went into my bonus funds. The slam dunk for me was the way Hello Casino broke down the bonus progress. Within my account, I could dive into each area of the bonus such as balance, rollover, wagering, progress, valid games, cash release cap and more. This level of bonus transparency hits a positive note. Bravo!
On top of a decent welcome offer, there is a generous loyalty program where you can trade in 1000 points for £5 in bonus money. This is subject to the standard 35x wagering requirements. I wagered through around £40 and already earned over 500 loyalty points.
Further to this, you will find a 30% bonus for every deposit of £10 or more you make on Sundays. This selection of promotions has room for a little more promotional play but it’s a good selection nonetheless.

One of their greatest assets is their extensive game library brimming with hundreds of casino games. You can browse by game, favourites, software provider and game search.
Amongst some prominent player favourites, there is Book of Dead, Gonzo’s Quest, Immortal Romance, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Siberian Storm and many more.
For players who want to try their luck at jackpot games, there is Rainbow Jackpots, Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune, Hall of Gods, Mega Joker, Lion Festival and Vikings of Fortune amongst many others.
Table game fans won’t be disappointed with Hello Casino's solid collection of games, including Blackjack, Roulette, Casino Hold’em and Texas Hold’em.
There is also a small selection of online scratchcards for you to play as well.
The presentation of their whopping game catalogue grabbed my attention straight away. The presentation and search functions are thoughtfully laid out to make it quick and easy to find your choice of slot.
Above the game titles are several categories to break up the content, including ‘All’, ‘Top’, ‘New’, ‘Slots’, ‘Live Casino’, ‘Table Games’, ‘Jackpots’, ‘Other’ and ‘Provider’. You can also find games from your favourites or by using the search field. These intuitive search options cover all ground so you’re sure to filter down to your preference. I was also pleased to see a search filter for game providers, one for the slot enthusiasts!
Hello Casino has a mammoth amount of games from top providers to lesser-known providers including BB Games, Fuga Gaming, IGT, Play’N Go and Thunderkick. I fancied a bit of jackpot action so I picked out Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold. The game started with a bit of lag but soon settled down, nothing too noticeable. The games window has a top menu where you can find the cashier, lobby, full-screen mode, account and deposit. I played £0.50 per spin and hit some frequent wins before striking a £36 mega win on the bonus round. I left with a nice profit and tried out NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog at £0.50 per spin. I didn’t hit any wins worth shouting about but the gameplay was smoother with little to no lag.
I moved over to the Evolution Gaming powered live casino lobby and picked out the Deal or No Deal game. I couldn’t get my head around the game, it appeared I had to qualify to reach a live studio game by spinning a confusing wheel. I left in the end and decided to stick with what I know. I played a few rounds on Dream Catcher which played with smooth video and crisp audio.

With so many games to pick from, it was no surprise to see the extensive array of mobile compatible games. I hit up the reels on the Primal Megaways slot which played in landscape mode. My £0.50 per spin bets only allowed me to break even. The slot had its mobile version so the gameplay controls were placed at my fingertips for best-in-class mobile play. The slot performed smoothly with zero lag to provide a great on-the-go experience. I could not fault the mobile site, it does a great top of upholding a clear and intuitive site structure.

If you or a loved one require further help and assistance, you can get in touch with BeGambleAware, GamCare or Gamblers Anonymous.
All these organisations are professionally trained to provide support to problem gamblers.
The customer support team at Hello Casino is available to answer your questions and queries. The casino site is relatively straightforward, and you can find what you are looking for with ease.
If you still require assistance, you can get in touch with Hello Casino as follows:
- Live Chat
- E-mail: email@example.com
A ‘Chat’ button is always located in the bottom left of the page, providing quick access to support. There is also a dedicated support page within the hamburger menu. However, the page is rather bare with only an email address and another button for the live chat. I couldn’t find a page for any FAQs so I jumped on live chat to query this. The support agent told me that the FAQs are not available and that they are happy to take my question via live chat. I found it somewhat baffling why they would not have a dedicated FAQs page to help customers. However, support is available around the clock so that’s a thumbs up.
The live chat service itself was excellent. I was swiftly connected to an agent within 30 seconds where a friendly customer support agent provided a satisfactory answer to my general question. The live chat box also has a thumbs up and thumbs down icon to click if you were satisfied or not with the resolution, I liked this touch.
I’d still like the option to bypass the process and find a quick solution to my general query via some FAQs. I had to drop a mark for the lack of FAQs but otherwise, their support service is near perfect.

Hello Casino is required by law to verify their players’ age and identity.
Whenever Hello Casino is unable to verify this information automatically, you’ll be requested to send in the following:
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
I found the verification page within ‘My account’ under the ‘My details’ section. It’s not the most visible area but at the same time, I wasn’t required to send my documents at this stage. I clicked on the page which displayed proof of ID and proof of address area, both of which were marked as ‘verified’. This is because Hello Casino does not require any identity documents until you meet the deposit threshold of £2000. I didn’t even have the option to upload my documents prematurely. I understand that it's not needed but I don’t think it hurts to allow the option.
There are plenty of deposit options available at your disposal, including debit cards, e-wallets and prepaid vouchers .
Hello Casino doesn’t charge any fees for depositing, and all deposits are processed instantly. Withdrawals can vary between instant to 24 hours to be processed. You can cancel a withdrawal at any time during the pending period. There are also no charges for withdrawals.
A simple banking page made it an undemanding process to make a deposit. There are no fees and the minimum deposit is £10. I used my Visa debit card to make a payment but there were plenty more options to pick from including PayPal, Trustly and Neteller. The process of inputting bank details and confirming the deposit is as smooth and simplified as it could be.
Making a withdrawal request was even easier. Once I was on the withdrawal page all I needed to do was put in the amount I wished to withdraw along with my password. The payment method details were already taken from my deposit so the process was extra quick. I immediately received an email to confirm that the withdrawal request had begun. The next day I received another email to confirm that the payments team was processing my withdrawal and that my money would be in my account in 3-5 working days. The withdrawal arrived in my bank account three working days later. This is a quick deposit time for a Visa debit card transaction. I could not fault the payment process at this online casino, it was flawless.
Mastercard 1-5 working days, Visa 1-5 working days, Wire transfer 1-5 working days, Skrill 0-1 working days, NETELLER 0-1 working days, Trustly 0-1 working days, PayPal 0-1 working days, Maestro 1-5 working days
