Kong Casino (UK) might be loosely based on the epic character of King Kong, but since launching in 2018, it has climbed all the way to the top to bring players all-round entertainment.

Kong Casino does embody the King Kong theme through its numerous missions, adventures and games. The website is set against a blood-red subset background, that has become iconic of the Skull Island.

From the moment you sign up, you start reaping the rewards of being a Kong Casino player. There are numerous casino bonuses, promotions and rewards. As soon as you sign up, you are automatically enrolled in the VIP club, where bigger and better perks and benefits await you.

Kong also uses the highly secure SSL encryption to encrypt all data on the site, to keep it safe and secure from outsiders.

It is also licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, which means that it abides with strict regulations when it comes to game fairness and impartiality.

If this sounds like the right casino for you, keep on reading to learn more what’s in store at Kong Casino.

Kong Casino looks epic but just like the mighty ape, it ends up being quite clumsy. There are some bold design choices and I like the no-nonsense approach. But the casino does come across as rough and ready.

Yes, things work well but you can’t shake off the feeling of lack of refinement. Things like their FAQs and support, their communications and the general user experience of the website is poor.

Their Live Casino is hidden. There’s no way to look through their games catalogue. Even something as simple as sending over documentation ends up being a chore.

Kong Casino bonus

The welcome offer at Kong Casino has been left to chance. Like most Jumpman Casinos, you are presented with the mega wheel. Sign up today to claim:

There is a mighty 500 free spins on Starburst up for grabs on the Mega Wheel. But as legendary as these bonuses sound I am not a fan because you can still end with nothing. Not to mention there is a 65x wagering requirement attached to that. Well above industry standards, especially considering the £250 cap (and an £8 max win per 10 spins).

After I deposited the Mega Wheel made an appearance. On it, I could spot things like a £10 Amazon voucher (who wants this anyway in a casino) and 10 spins on Fluffy Favourites. I didn’t like either of the options and I knew there was little chance of stopping on those 500 spins on Starburst.

I ended up winning 50 Starburst spins but I got very close to the unlucky + sad face emoji too. I clicked to go to my free spins. The NetEnt logo came up and it looked like the game was going to load up but then it didn’t and I was sent back to the lobby.

I searched for the game manually and when it finally loaded the free spins were waiting for me. I managed to win an amazing £23.55 from the free spins and I was quite incredulous as I never seem to win anything on Starburst.

After I started wagering the Mega Reel made another appearance because I had levelled up on Kong’s Trophy page. There were 500 spins on Greek Gods up for grabs here but most of this wheel just gave out 5 free spins on different games. I won 15 free spins on Wild Gladiators which I was quite pleased with even though these only converted to £9.

This time around I felt like something new. Giving the theme of the casino I chose Red Tiger’s Aztec Spins. It has some gorgeous graphics with a soundtrack that invokes some mystery. But the real excitement comes from the chance of triggering the Aztec Wheel Award. As always this really intrigued me and I stuck with the game until I managed it. It was well worth the wait as I managed to win a neat £4 from a 10p bet.

Next up I went searching through the ‘hot slots’ according to the Kong. It is here that I saw Thunderstruck 2. Being Microgaming it was giving off strong Mega Moolah vibes but it just wasn’t doing it for me.

It was then when I got a chance at Kong’s Mega Wheel (going from level 1 to 2 in their rewards system). I received 15 free spins on Wild Gladiators and won a good amount of bonus money. After the free spins were done I stayed on this game and ended up making up most of my money back.

If you want some live action you can find this as Kong Casino but you will have to search for it. There is no category for Live Casino. But looking through the lobby I noticed some live Blackjack and Roulette provided by Pragmatic Play.

Kong feels a lot more modern when using mobile. Accessing the site via my iOS device using Chrome the casino felt fast and powerful.

When I accessed the casino via mobile I noticed I had a go at the Mega Wheel for levelling up to 3. I received 10 free spins on Greek Gods which I immediately went to try out. I didn’t win anything from these but decided to stick with the game and managed to stay level.

At Kong, there’s a good section dedicated to FAQs and it’s quite easy to go through it with cascading answers. If you need support you will first be directed to this section.

After that, if help is still needed then support can be contacted via email. Messages are said to be replied within 2 days which does sound a bit slow when that is the only way to get in touch with support.

Creating the account is easy and after 3 steps you’ll be up and running. There is also an option to use a PayPal account to register which might be handy for some.

As soon as I finished registration I received an email explaining the Mega Reel and how Kong’s Welcome Bonus works. In the same email, you are also asked to send over some documentation to verify the account. This can be done by replying to the email. I thought best to get this over and done with and I sent my passport and a Yorkshire Water bill.

I sent these over and I immediately received a reply. I thought they were extra efficient at Kong but it was just an automated reply asking for the username, DOB and postcode. Why they couldn’t make this clear in the first email is beyond me.

By the time the account was verified (3 days later), I was ready to withdraw.

Banking

You can only make deposits and withdrawals in GBP at Kong Casino. You can add up to three payment cards to your accounts. You can make deposits via one of the below methods:

What is it with casinos dictating how much you can deposit? As soon as I registered my account a window popped up telling me all about the welcome bonus and then invited me to enter my debit card details.

Here I could enter the usual card details but then I could only choose to deposit £10, £20, £50, £100 or £200. Why? How hard is it for me to choose my own amount? I deposited £50 and was on my way to spin the Mega Wheel.

Withdrawing at Kong Casino can be a bit of a nightmare. First of all, there is a £2.50 charge on all withdrawals. There was no mention of any of this when depositing.

In all fairness, the withdrawal process after the documents were verified was quite fast. I received an email that the withdrawal was successfully processed the day after the request. Two days later the money was in my account.

New casino for me and I bet that for else too. Bonus is good, site works for me and I like the whole idea of "The Kong". There is one thing I don't like and that is the wagering part. 50x ur bonus? Come on Kong, that is too cheap ass wagering. Anyways I needed to try it. First bonus is forfeitable which is nice and there is also extra spins when you deposit. Hundred new slots and this could be a better than average casino!
