A clean, minimalist casino awaits at Pelaa Casino. Taken from the Finnish word for play, Pelaa Casino offers a clean interface with a great user experience. A kickass female Viking adorns the homepage with a soothing blue and yellow colour palette.

I have to admit that I am a big fan of Genesis Casinos. They are masters of user experience. Everything within the casino is so neatly organised. You don’t need to jump through hoops to find information or to withdraw. Even finding your favourite games is a breeze. On the left-hand side, you will find a burger menu that has everything you need. On the top right corner, your money and bonus money are clearly shown.

Then there is their amazing selection of games, great customer support channels and quick and easy deposits and withdrawals (even though these come with a little fee). All in all, Pelaa is probably one of the best casinos I had the pleasure to review.

Overall rating:

4.6

Two generous bonuses are waiting at Pelaa: one for slot players and one for those who prefer live casinos. I went with the slots bonus, which comes with free spins apart from the 100% match bonus.

Once I deposited, the bonus money was loaded into my account and I headed over to Gonzo’s Quest for the free spins. 15 free spins were waiting for me. And another 15 free spins will be waiting, every day, for the next 9 days. I won around £2 from the spins but it was a great warm-up.

Both bonus money and money won from spins come with a wagering requirement of 40x. This is only slightly above industry standards and considering you get a 100% match bonus and 150 spins, it does make it a solid welcome bonus.

It is also worth mentioning that while the bonus was active, a popup reminded me that I could only go up to £5 per bet for slots and £30 per bet for other games.

One of the best things about Pelaa is how perfectly categorised all the games are. Whether you know which game you want or you’re looking for inspiration at Pelaa, you’re guaranteed to find your game quickly.

Their intuitive search bar will not only bring up the games with a particular word but also a screenshot. This helped me so much when it came to finding the game I wanted. See, I knew I felt like something to do with sharks and I knew Push Gaming had quite an interesting one involving them. I quickly found the game I was looking for: Razor Shark. It does indeed have some interesting mechanics and I managed to win over £17 from a 20p bet thanks to the kelp mechanic. But I did eventually lose most of it chasing the bonus round which never materialised.

Apart from the search bar, there are also game categories. Here you are even able to look through the games by game provider. I find this to be the handiest way to search. And all the providers you can think of are here. From NetEnt to Play’N GO to Yggdrasil and so many more. Not to mention the range of live casino games provided by Evolution.

The outstanding user experience is mirrored in the mobile version of Pelaa Casino. As soon as I logged in with a Chrome browser through an iOS device, I felt right at home. I first went to the live casino and played a few rounds of Lightning Roulette. I didn’t hit any of the numbers so I decided to go back to the lobby and try a few rounds on different slots.

I started out playing Play’N GO’s Leprechaun Goes Wild. I love the high volatility of the game and the extra help getting into a bonus round. However, the bonus round was nowhere to be seen and after going for over 30 spins and winning nothing but a few 5ps, I needed something different.

So I headed over to Push Gaming’s Fat Rabbit. Here (and to my amazement) it only took a few spins to get into the bonus round. The rabbit got quite fat too and I managed to win over £65 from a 25p bet.

Creating a new account at Pelaa is as smooth an experience as can be. The two-step process starts by asking for a username, email and password. In the next step, I was required to submit the usual personal details. That was it. The account was set up and I was ready to go to the depositing page.

Once the process was done, I received an email welcoming me to the casino. At this point, I didn’t need to do anything else with regards to verification.

We work with some of the world’s leading payment providers, which process transactions safely and securely.

You can use the below to make deposits:

  • Debit Cards
  • EWallets

I chose to use a debit card to deposit £40 at Pelaa. There are a few other methods - such as Paypal - which can also be used. The deposit process is very straightforward. I chose the method, the amount and then whether I wanted a bonus or not, and if I did, which bonus I wanted. After entering the debit card details, the system went through bank verification and the amount was in my account. There is a minimum deposit of £10 and no depositing fees at Pelaa.

Withdrawing is as easy as depositing. If you have any bonuses, these can be forfeited automatically when withdrawing. The only thing is that there is a 2.49% transaction fee associated with every deposit. To be fair, this does mean that the withdrawal is processed quite quickly. In less than 24 hours, I received an email letting me know the money was on the way to me. In fact, it was in my bank account the next day.
