NextCasino looks good on the surface but with so many usability problems, especially on mobile devices, you might find yourself looking for the next casino. Branding-wise there is nothing here that sets the casino apart from other Aspire Global casinos available. The interface is clean, simple and easy to use but there’s nothing special to write home about.
It does offer a good selection of games but you may find some popular providers (such as Yggdrasil) and games (such as Mega Moolah) missing from the games selection. However, there is the full catalogue of Live Casino games powered by Evolution which complements perfectly the choice of slots.
To their credit, depositing and withdrawing are seamless. Having said that, be prepared to pay a processing fee for both activities. The deposit fee is quite cheeky in my opinion and whilst I do understand withdrawal fees, I always expect an ultra-fast turnaround. This wasn’t the case here.
Get started on the right foot, when you sign up for a Next Casino account and make a minimum deposit of £20:
- 1st deposit: 100% match bonus up to £50 + 50 spins on Twin Spin
- 2nd deposit: 50% reload bonus up to £50
Registering for an account only takes a couple of minutes. Follow the below steps:
- Sign up for a Next Casino account
- Verify your account by email
- Make a minimum deposit of £20
- Your welcome offer will be credited to your account
- Make another deposit to claim reload bonus
The welcome bonus at NextCasino is a typical one where you receive a 100% match bonus and 50 free spins. This is a good bonus if you want to check out what the casino has to offer. It also carries a wagering requirement of 35x that is just slightly above current industry standards.
Going through the promo section I also noticed a few other ongoing promotions available, including casino-owned ones where you can win some interesting prizes such as an Ooni Pizza oven.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make use of the welcome bonus as I wasn’t eligible due to other accounts I have with Aspire Casinos. It was a bit of a shame not being able to at least try out the free spins on Twin Spins.

Within Next Casino’s bountiful game library, you can find an assortment of online slots, table games, video poker and much more. You can find hundreds of popular games, from leading software game developers, such as Net Entertainment, Microgaming, NextGen and Play‘n Go.
Amongst some of the hottest titles on offer, there is Book of Dead, Vikings, Gonzo’s Quest, Wolf Gold, Bonanza and Reactoonz.
If you want to up the entertainment factor, you can avail yourself of jackpot titles, such as Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge, Stellar Jackpots With Silver Lion, Wild Fury and Mega Fortune.
Fancy a change? Then head to the Casino Game section to try out games, such as Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. All of these games come in different variations and with unique rules.
Alternatively, you can try online scratchcard games, such as 3 Rocks, Hit the Bank and Cash Farm.
When you enter the NextCasino lobby, you will notice that you can choose whether to browse through their selection of slots or live casino games. An intuitive search bar is also available where you can search by either game name or game provider. This is an incredibly handy tool, especially if you like choosing your games by provider or theme according to mood.
First up, I wanted to see if Pariplay’s Wolf Riches was available, so I typed ‘wolf’ in the search bar and all wolf-themed slots were put on display. Here I noticed NetEnt’s Wolf Cub, a super cute looking slot that I couldn’t resist. I had never played this before, so after a quick look at the info page, I jumped straight in. Within a few spins, I managed to enter the bonus round with 18 free spins, ultimately netting a 36x win. Next, I had to have a go at Wolf Riches, but I didn’t manage to recreate the good run I had in the previous wolf game.
It was time to explore the live casino games section and after a few goes at Lightning Roulette, I went in for a cheeky bet on Deal or No Deal. I entered the round straight away and then upped my bet slightly. On the first two rounds, most of the briefcases had red numbers on, so I went through the whole round and ended up with a 0.5x win. Quite disappointing but the volatility of this game is what makes it so entertaining.

If you are looking to play on the go, Next Casino has a superb mobile casino platform compatible with all devices.
Since it was created fully responsive and fully optimised on mobile, you can play a range of high-quality casino games on the go.
As a result, there are no mobile casino apps for you to download. You can play directly from your web browser.
I accessed the casino via the Chrome app on an iOS device. The site took a little while to load but I had this down to my connection. However, when I tried to log in I was having real trouble with the site hanging on the login screen. I changed from WiFi to 4G but I was still having trouble.
After two tries I managed to log in but the site was slow and I had trouble navigating it. I tried clicking around a few places and it was having more loading trouble, so I decided to go to a game and see the experience there. First up, I went with Play’n GO’s Agent Destiny. The game loaded well and I had some real fun playing, especially since at one point I managed a 243x win through the Linked Reels feature.
Then, when I tried to go back to the lobby, I was kicked out of my account. I was slightly worried as I had a few good wins in Agent Destiny and I didn’t want to lose out. Luckily, my wins were still there when I logged back in but I didn’t like the fact the site is so unstable on mobile.
Playing Wolf Riches for example also messed with the aspect ratio and, dare I say, the game was unplayable. When playing on a tablet the site was unusable in landscape mode and only worked in portrait. More work needs to be done on the mobile version.

If you are searching for the latest live casino experience, Next Casino’s live platform delivers on all fronts. Home to numerous games, you can find a collection of both classic titles and modern games.
Amongst the games on offer, there is live blackjack, live roulette, live baccarat and Dream Catcher. There are various tables available that accept various bet sizes.
Unlike the software version of these games, you are playing against a real-life dealer and real-life players in a virtual setting. You can also chat in the online chat room, just as you would if you were at a brick-and-mortar casino.

As a licensed operator, Next Casino is obliged by law to carry out verification checks of our players’ age and identity.
From the moment you make your first deposit, you’ll be requested to send in relevant documentation, which satisfy Next Casino's regulatory and legal requirements:
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
Getting an account set up is more than straightforward at NextCasino. All you need is to enter your email, choose a username and a password on the first step. Then, in the second step, simply enter the usual personal details and your account is set up.
Once this is done the casino will send a welcome email with details of your account and other useful information. At the bottom of the email is a link to verify your email. As soon as I clicked the link, I didn’t need to do anything else to be able to deposit and play.
At Next Casino only works with trustworthy payment processors. You can make deposits via one of the below methods:
- Debit Cards
- Prepaid Vouchers
Deposits are effortless and there are a few ways to get money in your account. The only hitch here is that there is a 2.5% processing fee for the deposit. I deposited £40 using a MasterCard Debit and was charged an extra £1. I do find this quite cheeky. Whilst I do understand a withdrawing fee and can close an eye when this happens, I don’t think a deposit fee from a card is appropriate.
I was hoping my withdrawal would be processed and sent to my account within a day since I had to pay a processing fee. However, my withdrawal was processed the day after the request and the money was in my account the next day. Maybe I’m grumbling too much but usually, withdrawals that come with a fee are processed and sent to the bank within 24 hours.
