There is a new kid on the block! And this is a cheeky one; he (or she) prefers nice things and rewards people that stick around. Yeah, we are talking about VIPBet. A casino that has yet to reach its first birthday, but is already making name in the scene. The name kind of gives away why: VIP Bet offers a great loyalty program! Like any new casino, there is still some tweaking to do before they can measure themselves with the great names of the industry. But we always welcome brave newcomers willing to face this challenge. So, let’s answer the following question in this review: is it worth it to become a Very Important Player at VIPBet?
VIPBet Casino’s front page when entering their website looks rather promising. Some high end luxurious looking imagery with a simple but enticing Welcome Offer. Scrolling down however, the vibe quickly changes due to the rather 1996 looking graphics. And not the nostalgic retro kind. Further down, the retrofuturistic gradients straight out of the eighties only contribute to the confusion. We thought they were going for a chic VIP look and feel? Things don’t improve on mobile, but at least they’ve picked a functioning responsive page template. Speaking of mobile, VIPBet Casino should’ve kept their emoji’s in their WhatsApp and Facebook chats, not in their About section. Also make sure your internet bundle can handle the respective 1.9 MB and 3.2 MB just from loading in the front page and the subsequent slots page.
When you continue to VIPBet Casino’s main slots page, things improve somewhat. The website returns to the initial luxurious presentation, albeit fairly crowded. The slots page features the classic collage of games, with plenty of filters to find your favorites. From here on, its smooth sailing.
A good game collection is not one with simply a large amount of titles. It is also being able to find the most interesting ones in that large pile of games! With their unique search tool, VIPBet certainly made finding that one game you love possible. They don’t have the biggest collection, but it is sure an interesting collection with games from Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution, Red Tiger, Pragmatic, Blueprint and Yggdrasil. With around 400 games, there is almost no chance you will ever get bored playing here. Oh yeah, they are all mobile playable!
Bonus and Promotions
So, we’ve finally come to the interesting part! Usually we start this section with the welcome bonus, but we make an exception for VIPBet. This time, we start with the VIP program! There are four levels in the program, that strangely enough are called Silver, Gold, Premiere and Elite. We would have chosen for silver, gold, platinum and diamond. But hey, what do we know! To reach the first level, that of silver, you have to have deposited £2000. In return, you get Exclusive promotions and reloads, Faster withdrawal times, Higher deposit limits and VIP membership for life. If you deposit ten times that amount, you’ll get to ‘elite’, the highest level of VIP. Once you achieved this, you’ll get:
Your own personal account manager
Exclusive promotions and reloads
Weekly Loyalty Promotion
Faster withdrawal times
Higher deposit limits
VIP membership for life
As well as 10% cashback in bonuses if you get unlucky. It’s kind of a missed opportunity that they didn’t mention exactly what these special gifts and exclusive promotions entail. The VIP program looks good, but still needs some work. So how about the welcome bonus? The welcome bonus is actually a welcome package with a total net worth of maximum €850 + 50 free spins. The catch here is that you have to do 40 times wagering within 24 hours and you can only win 4 times the bonus amount. Luckily, the ‘random’ promotions (weekly, new game, cash back) have more fair Terms and Conditions.
Payment, Support and Licensing
A casino that opened in 2018 can’t get away with flaws in this department anymore. The licenses are from Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission and seem to be in order, as far as support goes, VIPBet scores really well; live chat, telephone, FAQ, mail address and even a post address are all part of the support arsenal. With 15 possible deposit methods, the payment department meet the standards of 2018 as well. Long story short, the team behind VIPBet knew what was expected of them and they delivered.
So should you play as a VIP at this casino? Well, first ask what them what kind of ‘special gifts’ they had in mind. I don’t mind depositing 2k, but I don’t want to hear in hindsight it wasn’t worth it. Besides the unclear bonus and the looks of the portal page, this casino does look really interesting though! Even if your not going for the VIP plan, it’s definitely worth a look and a deposit or two.
