Easy, fast and sleek, that is what XL Casino is all about. Classy visual theme and approachable design combine to create a gambling environment where everyone is welcome.

I love a clean and simple casino website design and that is exactly what you get with XL Casino.

It’s a case of what you see is what you get with details of the welcome bonus being advertised at the top of the page with a selection of the most popular slots being displayed directly below.

There is something about 888 Dragonfish casinos that gets me excited, probably due to distant memories of playing at Wink Slots and a decent win on Raging Rhino but nevertheless, I was looking forward to seeing what XL Casino had to offer.

Overall rating:

3.9

When you sign up on XL Casino, you get to enjoy the casino's welcome bonus. New players get a match bonus and some bonus spins to boot.

You get:

  • 100% bonus up to £50 + 100 bonus spins on Gonzo's Quest

The bonus spins are split over 5 days and are valid for 3 days respectively.

XL Casino also has an invititation bonus available. If you get your friends to join in and deposit at least £10, you get £30 in bonus money and your friend gets £5.

The XL Casino welcome bonus is a matched offer of 100% to £50 and 100 bonus spins on the Gonzo’s Quest slot that are awarded at the rate of 20 per day over the first five days after opening an account.

On the face of it, this looks like a decent welcome bonus but a quick read of the terms and conditions was enough for me to realise that this bonus was not my cup of tea and I would be giving it a miss.

With a wagering requirement of 50x the deposit plus the bonus and an 85x wager requirement on any winnings from the 100 bonus spins, I concluded that the chances of walking away with a profit were pretty slim.

If those wagering requirements aren’t enough to put anyone off this bonus, the maximum withdrawal from the bonus funds is capped at £100.

Thanks, but no thanks!

and apply.

Extra and no deposit spins

These spins have a wagering requirement of 85x and all bonuses carry a £100 + initial bonus withdrawal cap.

XL Casino is a slot casino at its core. You get access to hundreds of slots from some of the biggest game developers around. NetEnt, Microgaming, BetSoft, Pragmatic Play and so on.

There are tons of big-name slots starting from Starburst, Big Bass Bonanza, Tomb Raider and Mustang Gold. That being said, XL Casino focuses more on the tried-and-true classics rather than up-and-coming hits.

You can also find plenty of jackpot games. XL Casino has two separate categories of these big poppers. You get the simple Progressive slots as well as Daily Jackpots.

There are plenty of categories to browse and a search field if you want to look for a specific game.

As this is a slot casino, that also means that there is nothing else available. You don't get any table games, video pokers or live casino games.

I loved the way in which the games are displayed at XL Casino and if I say so myself, it is very clever how they have done it.

Recently played games are placed at the top of the page, followed by ‘Top Picks for (my user name) and ‘Top 10 Slots in the UK’

Other games come under the headings of ‘Trending’ and ‘Exclusive Slots’ and when you take into account that games by big name software providers such as NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT and Eyecon are all on display, there are plenty of top titles to choose from.

I couldn’t have been more impressed and even though this is a ‘slots only’ casino, the fact that there are no table games or a live casino didn’t matter to me one bit.

I started off by playing one of the recommended top picks for me, American Gods, a slot I have never played before from a provider that I am not familiar with, SkyRocket Studios.

I hit the bonus round on the fifth spin so it would be fair to say that this slot is now one of my favourites, but I am very easy to please!

I also played a few spins on Fishin Frenzy, Starburst and Bonanza, all of these games loaded quickly and played without any problems at all.

XL Casino is very mobile-friendly. You don't need to download any apps to play ever, just open your mobile browser and you are good to go.

The mobile casino looks and feels just like the desktop site. Everything fits well even on smaller screens. The casino is compatible with all modern mobile devices and is responsive no matter what device you use.

So in the end, you are not missing out on anything if you choose to play on mobile only. Everything that you can do on desktop can be done on mobile as well.

XL Casino does not have a mobile app but I logged into the mobile version of the casino and I found it to be perfectly acceptable.

It was easy to navigate and for me, the Starburst and Fluffy Favourites slots loaded and played perfectly.

It is sometimes the case that mobile casinos have a cramped feel to them which ends up having a negative effect on the playing experience but no such problems with XL Casino.

I actually found it difficult to find a link to the customer support but eventually found it by clicking on the ‘Useful Links’ tab under the ‘My account’ section of the website.

There was a ‘Contact’ tab in the bottom right hand corner of the website but the ‘no agents available’ statement was there every time I looked over a period of three days.

Therefore, the only options available to me to check out customer support were email and telephone so I decided to use the freephone number and test them out.

To be honest, going by the ‘no agents available’ on live chat, I wasn’t really expecting much but my call was answered after one ring and the chap on the other end of the line couldn’t have been more helpful.

I could almost see him smiling down the line, such was his lovely manner, and my questions were all answered without any fuss and without the need to refer to anyone else.

For good measure, I sent off an email to customer support and received a helpful and accurate reply within the space of a few hours.

It is required by law that casinos know who their customers are. XL Casino is no exception here, and they require verification from their players.

The verification process starts when you sign up. After you have provided your personal information, the automatic verification system will try to check you information.

All accounts need to be verified before you can even deposit. If you can't be automatically verified, you need to provide XL Casino the required documents as proof of your identity and address.

If you need to manually upload any documents, it can be done via the secure document uploader on the casino site.

There were a couple of mentions about uploading verification documents during the registration process, not directed at me personally but more a general statement that verification may be required.

As is now becoming the norm for me, I did not receive a KYC request at any time during registration or when I made withdrawal from my account, even though I was ready and waiting to do so if required.

I did check the ‘Verification Required’ section of the website where there is the option to upload or drag and drop any requested files with detailed instructions on how to do so.

XL Casino has chosen a very simple and limited approach to money transfers. Players have a only a few tried-and-true methods available, which all are fast and secure. These methods include debit cards, PayPal and Paysafecard.

The minimum deposit and withdrawal is £5. All withdrawals are processed within 48 hours.

I used my Starling bank card to make a deposit into my XL Casino account and everything went without a hitch.

There were no deposit charges and I like the fact that there is a ‘No Bonus Please’ tick box so that you can decline a bonus so that you don’t have to contact customer support to get it removed later.

When it came to making a withdrawal, I decided to phone customer support to ask when I could expect it back in my bank account.

The friendly support agent explained that it takes 48 hours for a withdrawal to be processed but that does not include weekends.

I made the withdrawal from my XL Casino account on the Friday but by the following Wednesday, I had still not received the payment back to my Starling account.

Back to telephone support again who informed me that Starling had, in their words, refused the withdrawal, so I opted for a bank transfer instead and that went through within 24 hours.

These things happen but I was a little disappointed that XL Casino didn’t see fit to inform me that the initial withdrawal was refused.
