NextCasino was launched in early 2013 by OddsMatrix Ltd. It’s an online casino that has been licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta and runs using software from six different providers, including some of the biggest names in the industry:NetEntertainment, Microgaming, BetSoft, Sheriff Gaming, Play’n GO and OMI Gaming. The casino has a simple yet elegant design with high quality graphics that give it an exquisite feel and is available in twelve languages.
The casino uses the internationally accepted industry standards SSL encryption algorithms to encrypt all information it receives from players. This means that personal and financial information is protected with high security technology used by banks and financial institutions all over the world. When it comes to fairness, the site mentions that all software used in the casino is certified and approved by third party certification agencies, but no certificates, or at least names of the agencies are mentioned. However, the providers used by here are known for the quality of their software and the casino is licensed in Malta, which also proves that it had to pass rigorous fairness checks.
As we mentioned in the introduction, NextCasino uses software from six different providers, which is a really nice surprise. This gives players access to almost 600 different games, although they are not divided evenly among all software, as some providers have over 300 (like Microgaming) or 100 games, while others only 4 (like OMI). This is of course not really a problem, because it’s not surprising that some companies are bigger and have more games than other. The games are separated into the following categories: video slots, 3D slots, table games, classic slots, video pokers, jackpot games and other games. Some of the most known slots in this casino include Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack Hammer, Starburst, Immortal Romance, Reel Rush, Elements, the Dark Knight or Thunderstruck II. All games are available directly from the website, thanks to the Instant Play mode. The casino also has a mobile version that allows players to enjoy all content from their smartphone and tablet devices.
After you create a new account and want to deposit money, you will be able to use the NextCasino Super Welcome Offer. It’s a 100% first deposit bonus up to $€200/£150 + 30 freespins in mobile Starburst and 50 freespins in Jackhammer. The minimum deposit to receive this bonus is $€£20 and the wagering requirement for it is 30x deposit + bonus amount, while freespins have a max win withdrawal limit of €100 (or equivalent in other currencies). Another promotion available at NextCasino is a Monthly Reload Bonus where the first deposit every month will receive a 50% bonus up to €300 (or equivalent). Sadly, these are the only promotions currently available at the casino, which feels a little unsatisfying.
The banking section is definitely a strong element of the casino as it includes a wide selection of payment options. Players can use a number of credit and debit cards, e-wallets, prepraid cards, instant banking options and bank transfers. Aside of the popular international options such as Neteller, Skrill, Ukash or paysafecard, the casino also allows the use of methods specific to certain countries. The withdrawal limits depend on the option you use and can be found on the website. Additionally, when you make a withdrawal amounting to €2,300 or more the casino will require you to provide identification documents.
While the previous section leaves a positive impression, customer support proves to be disappointing. The only way to contact the casino is through the e-mail form available on the site. There’s no phone number, no live chat and no information on how long should you expect to wait for a response. At least there’s a Help section that covers a lot of important questions.
NextCasino appears to be a mixed bag. It definitely has strong suits, like its selection of games or banking options, but then there are elements like bonuses and customer support that leave you wishing for more. Hopefully the casino will develop further and its weak points will disappear with time.
