- Unique theme

- Laborous verification process
Race Casino UK was launched in October 2020 and is an addition to the highly-rated L&L group. The initial thought was to target the Swedish and Finnish markets with the Pay'n Play model. But after high demand from the audience, they decided to go live in the UK and haven't looked back since.
With a spectacular amount of slot machines table games and live casino Race really has it all. This is a casino where they focus on speed, fast deposits, fast withdrawals, and fast verification.
The key to Race Casino's success has been its simplistic and fast design. Playing is made easy, as you are not bombarded with unnecessary information, but rather get to keep your head in the game.
Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines and join Race Casino! Emerged on the scene in late 2020 and licensed by the UKGC, Race Casino provides an adrenaline-filled experience to UK casino players with nearly 1,400 games and promotions that will get your engines roaring.
Race Casino is owned by L&L Europe Ltd, the company that seems to know how to cater to the taste of British punters. It stands behind several successful UK online gaming sites such as All British Casino, Fun Casino and Hyper Casino. I visited Race Casino to check out what's behind the wheels of this racing-themed site. Are you ready to get your engines running? Join me, and let's start the race!
Enjoy Race Casino's welcome offer when signing up. The minimum deposit is £10 and you will get 100% up to £100 on your first deposit.
All you need to do is find your way to "my account" and click on your available bonuses, then on "activate" to make the deposit with the bonus attached.
- Welcome offer: 100% match bonus up to £100
To get the bonus, you need to make a minimum of £10 deposit. The bonus has a wagering requirement of 40x and the max bet is £5 when playing with bonus.
It is not possible to meet the wagering requirements by playing in the Live Casino, table games or video poker.
Race Casino offers a 100% deposit bonus match, up to £100 . The bonus sum wasn't as large as many UK casinos I've been playing on lately, where welcome offers are split to a few reload bonuses and can reach hundreds of pounds. But the Race Casino bonus was still not too bad compared to UK's casual casino game/slot sites.
The wagering requirements on the bonus money is 40x. The wagering requirements in general are on par with market standard, although a bit on the higher end. What disappointed me was that table games do not count at all towards the wagering requirements. In addition, several slots I enjoy playing, such as Dead or Alive and Blood Suckers, were also excluded from wagering requirement completion.
Lastly, the 'promotions' section on the Race Casino website doesn't really talk in detail about the bonus but rather covers very generic information about the site, games, etc. All in all, there are quite a few things to improve when it comes to Race Casino's welcome offer.

Race Casino offers a great choice of games for their users. They have a large variety of the best providers and the most popular games.
They are constantly adding new games and providers every month in order to keep up with the latest trends. Check out some of their new games from Pragmatic!
The casino itself runs very well on desktop and users are happy about the quality and the speed.
Race Casino's games are supplied by the following providers:
Netent, Microgaming, Blueprint, Bally, Barcrest, Evolution, Inspired, Novomatic, IGT, Big Time Gaming, Next Gen, Play n Go, high 5 games, Thunderkick, Elk, Slingo, WMS, Amatic, No limit City, just for the Win, Scientific, Red 7, Shuffle Master, Slingshot, Pragmatic Play
After claiming my welcome bonus, I opened up the slots section to see what games were available. I was happy to see a great selection that included many of my favourite games. The games are neatly arranged in sections, including video slots, live casinos, table games, jackpot games, and Slingo.
I jumped straight in to play on Novomatic's Lord of the Ocean, one of my all-time favourites and was lucky enough to trigger several bonus rounds within the first hour of playing. Being in a fun mood after raking wins in the ocean, I tuned in Play'n Go's Reactoonz 2 from Play'n Go, one of the most fun and entertaining games out there. The silly animations and music kept me glued to the screen for a while. Still being in a fun mode, I turned on another slot game, this time NetEnt's Piggy Riches, which I used to love back in the day. This game is not very volatile, and I played it with higher betting limits and got excited by some small but frequent wins.
Not giving up on the dream of becoming a millionaire someday,I went to check the jackpot section and didn't find too much there. Race Casino offers about 10 progressive jackpot slots. So although it's not a vast selection, I still played Microgaming's original Mega Moolah and Atlantean Treasures, which is part of the Mega Moolah's series. You can still find more progressives like Microgaming's Major Millions and NetEnt's Divine Fortune, Mega Fortune and Arabian Nights.
My next session at Race Casino was dedicated to live casino games. Evolution Gaming's Lightning Roulette was my number one choice since I love the extra jackpot element in that game. I could not land any big winnings for a while, so I tried some blackjack and was able to win back my losses and then some. I used a solid basic strategy, and with a bit of luck, I was able to win. What I like in Evolution live dealer blackjack beyond the slick technology is the professional dealers. The in-play chat feature also allows for some fun banter and chat with the dealer and fellow players, this time congratulating me for my winning hands. Overall, the gameplay experience was very satisfying.

Race Casino's customer support team is fully trained if you have any questions or are in need of some assistance. They recommend having a chat with them if you are unsure of what to do or how to do it.
Race Casino's support team is available 24/7 in order to help and assist.
Feel free to contact them by either Email, Phone or Live chat.
In terms of customer support, Race Casino also provides a quality experience. I was able to find answers to any questions I had, including the bonus wagering requirements, by scrolling through the extensive FAQs and bonus conditions pages.
I contacted customer support to help me with the customer verification process, and they were fast and helpful. You can also contact support by phone, but as I couldn't find any hours for phone support and it was an international number, I decided to use the live chat option. The live chat agent was knowledgeable and helpful, and she pointed me in the right direction.
The live chat appears to be available around the clock, which is always helpful. If you aren't looking for instant help, you can also contact the Race Casino support team by email or a form on the web. I received replies within a day, which wasn't as fast, but still acceptable.

In accordance with laws and regulations, Race Casino will ask for verification documents to confirm your age and identity. The customer support team will ask you for the following documents:
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
These documents can be submitted by Email or Live chat.
While most UK online casinos do not allow you to make deposits before you go through their KYC process and submit documents, Race Casino requires you to complete the process before making your first deposit. This is all good and well and could have been a lot easier if Race Casino would have made customers aware of the process. Instead, I just had access blocked to the cashier page after trying to make a deposit and was told to contact support without receiving any explanation.
When contacting support, the agent was helpful and offered me to upload my documents onto the chat. I submitted the required documents, including a copy of my driver's license, utility bill with my address, and a credit card photo.
However, the agent himself couldn't approve my account, and I was told to 'check periodically' after a few hours to see if my account was approved. Although I requested to be contacted by email once my account is verified (I'm still unsure why I even had to request something so trivial), I was never contacted and had to chase support a day later to get my account approved.
Eventually, I got my account verified, but the entire process was frustrating and labour intensive. I sure hope Race Casino improves on its process soon. For starters, a welcome email explaining the process could have gone a long way.
Race Casino provides deposit methods such as: Visa, Mastercard, EcoPayz, Skrill, Bank Transfer, Paysafe, Trustly, with more to come.
Deposits are more or less instant depending on the provider, with an exception of Bank transfer which takes up to 3-5 working days.
There are no fees for making a deposit, note that the provider themselves sometimes has a fee.
When it comes to withdrawals a rule of thumb is to request it with the same method as you deposited with.
Their minimum deposit is set to £10 and there are no fees involved.
When I finally got my account verified and cashier access granted, I went to look at the available payment methods. Race Casino offers the usual methods, although I noticed there was no PayPal option available. I was going to deposit via Skrill but realized that Skrill, Neteller, and Ecopayz deposits do not trigger the welcome bonus, so I simply deposited with my MasterCard, which was instantly processed.
When I wanted to cash out, I realized that I couldn't use MasterCard to process a withdrawal, so I again asked the customer support agents what to do. I was informed that I could cash out into my Skrill account, which I did. The payment was processed in approximately 48 hours, which is not the fastest ever, but not too slow either.
Mastercard 1-5 working days, Visa 1-5 working days, Wire transfer 3-5 working days, Skrill 1-24 hours, EcoPayz 1-24 hours
