PlayOJO is a relatively new casino, launched in early 2017. Since then, our casino has gained increasing popularity and attention for our enticing welcome offer.
With free-flowing promotions, quality games by some of the world’s leading software providers and overall fantastic experience, we are here to make sure that you have fun.
Whatever you win, is yours to keep
Not afraid to shy away from conventional methods, the gambling industry took notice of us, awarding us with the Rising Star Casino award in 2019 and The Casino of The Year in 2017 award.
Without wagering requirements to act as a barrier between yourself and your winnings, we also give back money on every bet placed, regardless of whether you win or lose.
PlayOJO is a much-loved online casino, and one that has a staggering library of more than 3,000 games.
The site also offers a secure wagering experience that’s underpinned by some exceptional customer support, while the range and depth of PlayOJO's responsible gambling measures went above and beyond my expectations.
Still, the PlayOJO experience is let down by key usability issues, with the desktop and iOS app versions blighted by inconsistent load times and interrupted gameplay respectively.
So, while the site is colourful, engaging and well-laid out, it also has fundamental flaws that are hard to ignore if you intend to play regularly.
New players at PlayOJO casino enjoy a very generous welcome offer: Up to 50 Wager-Free Spins on online slot Book of Dead.
Deposit £10 and you’ll receive 50 wager-free spins
Follow these steps to claim the bonus:
- Go to PlayOJO
- Register for a new account
- Make your first deposit
- Enjoy your free spins without wagering requirements
Every time you play, you’ll move between OJO Levels. Climb up between levels to receive better rewards. Every few levels, OJO treats you to a spin on The OJO Wheel too!
The OJO Wheel is a wheel of fortune-style game where you can win Extra Spin packages. You pick one out of 3 wheels, each with a different level of risk. The higher the risk, the bigger the Extra Spins package.
PlayOJO’s welcome bonus is certainly unlike any other on the market, and one that’s both incredibly simple and arguably ideal for novice players!
So long as you deposit a minimum of £10 into your account, you’ll be eligible to receive 50 free spins on the popular Book of Dead slot. To claim these, you'll need to opt-in to the offer immediately after completing the deposit through your account home page, with this remaining active for a period of 24 hours.
This game is low-variance and delivers quite frequent but modest base game wins, with the betting limit set at the minimum of 0.01 coins and £0.10 per spin. I was able to bank £2.70 in real money after playing through the bonus, including one notable win worth 150 coins (£1.50).
This slot also features the option to ‘Collect’ or ‘Gamble’ your winnings after each spin, so there’s an opportunity to double and even quadruple your return in some cases. It should also be noted that although I didn't unlock the game's free spins round during my bonus gameplay, this has the potential to boost your winning potential significantly.
Although this may not be the highest value bonus in purely financial terms, the offer isn’t subject to any wagering requirements. So, there’s no fixed amount that you need to play through before processing a withdrawal, making it far easier to access your funds even if you have a relatively modest bankroll.
There are no minimum withdrawals attached to the welcome offer either, so you can boost your bankroll incrementally at any time you like. Such withdrawals may be subject to further identification checks, but I’ll have a little more on this later.
I’d certainly recommend the PlayOJO welcome bonus for new, cautious or casual players, although high-rollers may well be deterred by its relatively low value.

VIP / Special promotions
At PlayOJO, we will treat you as a VIP. If you are invited to become an A-lister, you will be offered personalised offers, bonuses and cashbacks amongst many others.
PlayOJO has over 3,000 casino games available to play. We work with the world's leading software providers, including NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Big Time Gaming, WMS, NextGen and Evolution Gaming amongst others.
You can find a variety of games in our repertoire, including table games, video slots, progressive jackpots and daily jackpots.
Popular slot titles include, Wolf Gold, Starburst, Reel King Mega, and Mustang Gold. When it comes to table games, you can play Blackjack, Roulette, Deuces Wild, Aces & Faces, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker.
You can access a huge range of titles through PlayOJO, simply by clicking through the ‘Games’ icon on the vertical menu running down the left-hand side of the screen.
This will instantly take you to a new landing page, where all the game genres are displayed horizontally at the very top of the screen. Beneath this, there’s an ‘Advanced Search’ box, through which you can look for specific slots, progressive and table games.
If you want to choose from a wider range of games from a single screen, you can also change the layout of the display to a list format.
You’ll also find a selection of the site’s new, featured and most popular games listed below the search box and a really insightful collection called ‘OJO’s Picks’. I found this to include a superb mix of low and high-variance slots, including personal favourites such as Gonzo’s Quest and Cleopatra.
This is definitely a great way of accessing the site's most popular slots, although the load times for certain games leave a lot to be desired. It took around 45 seconds for ‘The Wild Hatter’ jackpot slot to fully load, for example, while I clicked through the low-variance ‘Book of Dead’ game in less than 10 seconds.
This can make for a frustrating experience depending on which games you’re playing, while this is also an issue when navigating the ‘Live Casino’.
In fact, live games like ‘European Pro Roulette’ took up to 45 seconds to load, while it takes roughly the same amount of time to access Evolution Gaming’s ‘Platinum Live Casino’.
The latter at least has access to some immersive roulette iterations, but this isn't enough to distract from inconsistent load times and occasionally significant lags during gameplay.

We give you the freedom to play on the go, whenever and wherever you are. We have created a mobile casino app that is fun, user-friendly and innovative.
Navigation is smooth and finding your favourite games is a doddle. With the PlayOJO mobile casino app, you can access over 2,000 games at the click of a button.
You can access PlayOJO through a mobile browser and native apps when using your smartphone, with both entities adopting an almost identical layout and condensing the game genres and verticals into accessible drop-down menus.
This makes the site easy to navigate, while the smooth and intuitive design borrows heavily from the desktop version to help you play seamlessly across multiple devices.
However, I did notice some lag when playing the ‘Book of Dead’ slot through the iOS app, while the game even closed unexpectedly in the middle of a spin on one occasion. Fortunately, I didn’t lose any money from my balance, but this is definitely something to watch for if you’re an iPhone user.
Overall, I’d recommend accessing PlayOJO through a mobile browser when wagering on the go, as this delivered uninterrupted gameplay and relatively quick load times of between five and seven seconds on average.

Here at PlayOJO, your safety is our top priority. We do this by being fair, transparent and socially responsible. This is why we want to protect our players from problem gambling.
The following tools are available at your disposal for better control over your gambling:
- Self and Temporary Exclusion
- Cooling-off Period
- Set Limits
Our team is well-trained and can spot players vulnerable to problem gambling. We will contact these players and offer help such as deposit limits and restrictions.
We have a dedicated Help section answering a range of questions on deposits and withdrawals, responsible gaming, Kickers, the OJO Wheel and technical stuff.
We also have a friendly and professional customer support team on hard 24/7 to offer help at any time through email, live chat or phone.
You can access OJO’s customer support by clicking through the green question mark icon on the right-hand side of the homepage.
The two most helpful features here are the detailed FAQ page and the ‘Contact Us’ tab, with the former a great resource for information about deposits, withdrawals and the site’s responsible gambling policy.
The latter provides you with direct access to the site’s email and live chat feature, both of which offer an excellent level of 24/7 support. I raised a simple query to confirm the lack of wagering requirements attached to the welcome bonus through the live chat feature, and was connected to an agent within a matter of seconds.
The agent was both incredibly friendly and highly efficient, and I’d definitely recommend this if you want a quick resolution to a simple issue.
The email response was also impressive, as I sent a more complex query about changing my weekly deposit limit to firstname.lastname@example.org. I received a detailed response within two hours and thirty minutes, while once again the agent was polite and courteous.
Ultimately, it’s hard to fault the customer service on offer at PlayOJO (particularly through live chat and email channels), although on reflection the FAQ could be a little more structured and easy to navigate.

We are required by law to know our customers. Players are asked to prove their identity by providing the following documents before withdrawals can be processed:
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
When you sign up at PlayOJO, you’ll complete a three-step registration process before being asked to verify your email with a unique four-digit code.
This must be entered manually into the ‘Preferences’ tab in the ‘My Account’ section, at which point you’ll complete the initial verification stage and can credit your account for the first time.
In the same section, you’ll also notice a prompt encouraging you to provide copies of identification documents. It’s better to upload these documents sooner rather than later, as I was asked to provide the information before completing my first withdrawal.
You can click through the ‘Upload Docs’ button, before submitting electronic copies of your proof of ID (either a passport, national ID card or driving license) or proof of address (a bank statement or utility bill dated within the previous three months).
You should save these onto your desktop and upload them directly, and my account was fully verified within three days of me submitting the documents.
PlayOJO clearly takes its responsibilities seriously when verifying its players’ identities, and I really appreciated the constant prompts to submit my documentation even before this was required to complete a withdrawal.
We accept a variety of banking methods for our UK players. You can make deposits and request withdrawals, safe in the knowledge, that your financial information is kept away from prying eyes.
You can make secure transactions using debit cards, eWallets, prepaid cards, bank transfers and more. All transactions are protected thanks to the best-in-class security encryption software. Withdrawals are processed within a few hours.
There are nine deposit options available on PlayOJO, each of which can be used to credit your account as part of the current welcome bonus.
Each of these payment methods completes deposits instantly. Most can also be used to process withdrawals, although there’s an anti-money laundering restriction in place which means that you can only withdraw cash through a method that you’ve previously used to credit the account (which I think is a great feature).
I completed my initial deposit of £10 using PayPal, and the first withdrawal of funds through the same method took less than 24 hours to complete (after the ID verification process).
I found this to be the most cost-effective and convenient payment option overall, with the second withdrawal completed through PayPal taking less than two hours to complete and subsequent transactions concluded almost instantly.
You should probably avoid the ewallet Neteller on PlayOJO, as you’ll have to pay a 3.5% fee on all deposits and this will definitely eat into your bankroll over time!
Mastercard 3-7 working days, Visa 3-7 working days, Wire transfer 3-7 working days, Online bank transfer 2-5 working days, Skrill 0-1 working days, NETELLER 0-1 working days, Paysafecard 0-1 working days, PayPal 0-1 working days
I've been playing at and reviewing casinos for years, while I have extensive knowledge of the iGaming market in the UK. I particularly enjoy slots, table games and live casino gameplay, and have played at most of the UK's licensed casinos.
