Is Casino Gods legal in Canada? Yes, Casino Gods is legal for players in Canada.
Ever played a slot game themed around Ancient Greece? Well, imagine that theme splashed across an entire online casino. And with Casino Gods, they’re not playing around. From language to design, visitors to the site are immersed in a cartoon interpretation of the Greek empire from the days long passed.
Launched in July 2019, the site hosts a huge game library, focused heavily on slots and some very generous welcome bonuses. Still too new to have any real online reputation, we do know that the casino comes from Genesis Global Limited, which owns other gaming sites like Genesis Casino, Casino Planet, Casino Cruise, Pelaa, Casino Joy, Casino Dome, Casoola, and several others. So is Casino Gods merely a cheap re-skin looking for an easy way to stand out, or does it really offer players gifts from the Gods? Let’s find out.
Casino Gods – The Highlights
- Attractive theme and user-friendly interface
- Wide selection of slots and live casino games
- VIP and Loyalty program with great prizes to be won
- Accepts Interac and CAD
Your first deposit at Casino Gods will be topped up with a fairly generous cash match of 100% up to C$300, and completed with a very substantial 300 Free Spins. But if you’re the sort of player to enjoy bigger bonuses, you’ll be pleased to learn that their casino bonuses continue across your second, third, and fourth deposits also. In total, your promo cash limit is set at C$1,500, and it works like this:
- A first deposit at 100% up to C$300, plus 300 Free Spins
- Second deposit at 50% up to C$400
- Third deposit at 25% up to C$400
- Fourth deposit at 25% up to C$400
Your Free Spins are available to play on not one, but four different slots, and we do appreciate the choice. Try your luck оn Ѕtаrburѕt, Gоnzо’ѕ Quеѕt, Rеd Rіdіng Нооd оr Аlоhа Christmas. On the downside, wagering requirements set at 40x, so you will need to do a fair bit of spinning before you can take home the goodies.
There’s very little information in the way of Casino God’s VIP program. The benefits of being part of the top tier are a dedicated account manager, exclusive bonuses, VIP events, a monthly VIP prize draw, personalized birthday gifts, a personal withdrawal service, holiday packages, and exclusive promotions. However, the website tells only of its existence and benefits, with no further information on how players succeed in taking advantage of it.
With the exception of the holiday packages (I was intrigued by the possibility of winning trips away to play tournaments — but I can’t confirm that this is what’s on offer), it all sounds like the usual fare. I suppose the more often you play then the closer you get to access the benefits on offer. Considering that Casino Gods put so much focus on standing out of the crowd with their theme, I’m surprised an equal amount of vigor didn’t go into developing a genuinely fresh take on the same old VIP and loyalty programs we’ve been seeing for years. We would advise players looking for a more rewarding VIP experience we recommend Vips Casino, Super Seven Casino, or Ice Casino.
As a casino that forms part of a group of several other casinos, it isn’t surprising that they’ve partnered with some of the best providers out there. In fact, I imagine it was pretty simple to roll the game library across all the online casinos that fall under the umbrella company. And indeed it is an impressive offering, with over 1,400 games available from the likes of Yggdrasil, NYX Gaming Group, Evolution Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n Go, and QuickSpin. Games are available in instant play, so there’s no need to download any software.
In terms of what’s on offer, it would be a fair assessment to say that slots and progressive jackpots dominate the scene. But they’re also accompanied by a sampling of everything from scratch cards to table games and live casino. The game catalogue is very well split up, so trawling through an endless list of thumbnails won’t be necessary.
The Slots & Jackpots section is neatly divided into ‘Video Slots’, ‘Jackpots’, ‘Classic Slots’, and ‘Must Fall Jackpots’. The similarly vast Live Casino section gets the same treatment, so players can search under ‘roulette’, ‘blackjack’ or the rather obscure ‘other games’, which includes a series of poker and baccarat varieties. It seems a little odd that these wouldn’t get their own groups, seeing as they’re extremely popular games in their own right, but perhaps this will be re-evaluated down the line.
The smallest offering is the Table Games section, which probably wouldn’t satisfy table game purists, but is by no means insubstantial. Players wanting some action on the felt will be able to choose from roulette, blackjack, video poker, and several other more obscure options like bingo, patience and Dream Catcher.
From electronic wallets to bank transfers, you can expect to find the full range of payment options at Casino Gods. Of course, availability of these options will vary from country to country.
So what can Canadians expect from deposits and withdrawals? It’s a selection of the usual suspects, and this is a good thing, because when it comes to handing your funds, you want a name you can trust. Players are able to choose from an identical list of methods for both cashing in and cashing out. Your choices include Interac, iDebit, Instadebit, Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Skrill, and ecoPayz. On the plus side, all options are totally free of any fees and you can expect higher than average transaction speeds. The word on the street is that typical pending times run between 24 and 48 hours, with a processing time of under 72 hours.
One area where Casino Gods has got things a little backward is in the customer support department. When most new casinos are doing away with phones altogether, this online casino is offering players the opportunity to contact them by phone for some good old fashioned verbal communication.
However, it appears that the number provided is based in Malta, Europe, which means Canadian callers might have some trouble getting through due to incompatible timezones. There’s no Live Chat option, which is disappointing as this would have been a convenient alternative for non-Europeans, but there is an FAQ section and two different email addresses. If you like to make things public you can even get the casino’s attention through their social media channels on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
The site looks good and it works well, so visually there’s little to complain about. Perhaps they’re a little too heavy on the Ancient Greece puns, but I get that they’re going for a strong theme, so I’ll give them a pass on that. Customer support is lacking a Live Chat option, which most players have now come to accept as standard, but this is something players can work around with email or phone.
On the negative side I found that the welcome bonus, while generous, was weighed down by heavy wagering requirements. The game library was strong and varied, with even the weakest category doing better than most. The VIP program was lacking in information, so it’s impossible for me to judge it on merit. Overall I would suggest players visit this site if they’ll be happy with more of the same — but don’t be fooled by the promisingly original theme.
