Is Simple Casino legal in Canada? Yes, Simple Casino is available to Canadian players.
Owned and operated by Swedish company, Hero Gaming, Simple Casino comes from the same group as Casino Heroes, and Boom Casino . Their latest venture, a reboot of Betser Casino, markets itself as the ‘no-fuss casino’, but what is it exactly that they’re not fussy about? The way the people behind the casino see it, online gaming should be a seamless, ‘simple’ endeavor. They aim to achieve this by making it easy to register, hassle-free to play, and straightforward when it comes to withdrawing. But are they true to their word? And is this enough to make Simple Casino stand out from the crowd? Let’s take a look beneath the surface to find out if they achieve a simple player experience, or if it’s just empty words.
Simple Casino: The Highlights
- Easy registration and straightforward play
- Impressive live casino range, as well as slot selection
- Produced by a trusted casino company
There’s nothing confusing about Simple Casino’s welcome bonus as it’s exactly what it says on the tin. Your first deposit as a newly registered player will be doubled up to a maximum of C$500. There are no free spins on offer here, which might disappoint a few slots fans. Another thing which might bring a frown to your face is the fact that in order to qualify for this bonus, you’ll need to make a minimum deposit of C$50. This is a little bit of an odd combination, because the high deposit minimum alienates more recreational players, but the C$500 cap isn’t high enough to excite high rollers. It does make you wonder who signed off on this welcome bonus combo.
As is always the case, bonus money can’t be withdrawn until you meet the wagering requirements. With Simple Casino, players need to wager all their bonus cash at 40 x, which is definitely on the high side of things. For example, at the top of the scale, if you get a C$500 bonus, then you’ll need to wager a total of C$2,000 to clear the wagering requirement because 500 x 40 is 2000. Bearing in mind that the maximum bet is capped at C$5, this is no easy task.
On a positive note, you can use your bonus almost anywhere on the site, meaning you aren’t restricted to any particular games. However, you should know that not all games weight toward wagering requirements in the same way. Here’s how Simple Casino work it out:
- Slot machines at 100% (excluding Blood Suckers and The Wish Master)
- Video Poker at 30%
- Oasis Poker at 10%
- Texas Hold’em Poker at 10%
- Casino Hold’em at 10%
- Blackjack at 10%
- Roulette at 5%
- Baccarat at 0%
They’ve taken their commitment to simplicity extremely seriously. This online casino has the cleanest site I’ve ever come across. The homepage is positively minimalistic (a trait the Swedes are well known for), and the remaining pages are similarly short and to the point. The busiest things get is on the game pages, where all titles are displayed in thumbnail format, but even these are set to a pale backdrop, giving them the neatest possible appearance.
The language used is clear and easy to understand. With straightforward instructions and short sentences, you’ll understand what you need to do quickly and efficiently. Within the game pages, each genre incorporates a set of filters and customizations, making is super easy to get where you want to go in as few clicks as possible.
As promised the sign up process is, well, simple. It takes mere seconds to get started and you aren’t met with the myriad of questions and demands for information as you do with most other casinos.
In short, I really can’t find a single thing to complain about. And that’s saying something.
When I’m reviewing an online casino, I’m usually always greeted by a horde of slot games, which generally take up the lion’s share of games on offer. With Simple Casino I was blown away by their massive Live Casino selection, entirely hosted by Evolution Gaming. Players can enter an immersive world of real time gaming, taking their pick from multiple variants of roulette, blackjack, money wheel, dice games, poker, game shows, baccarat, dragontiger, and top card.
Slots, Blitz Games, Jackpots
As you would expect, the slot selection is particularly vast, these being the most in-demand games available right now. And Simple Casino takes things to the next level with a huge library from all the big providers out there including 1X2 Gaming, Bally, Barcrest, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint, Cayetano, Inspired, Iron Dog, Just for the Win, Kalamba Games, Lightning Box, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, No Limit City, Play N Go, Pragmatic Play, Push Gaming, Quickspin, Red Tiger, Stormcraft Studios, Wazdan and Yggdrasil.
This is the smallest library out of all the game genres but, saying that, it’s still extremely comprehensive. Players can try their hand at multiple varieties of poker, including Casino Hold’em, Fortune Pai Gow, Caribbean Stud, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em. Players can also access classics like baccarat, as well as more niche games like Mahjong Exchange and SlotDice. Blackjack and roulette are also ready to thrill you with over 10 variants of each.
When it comes to Canadians, payment methods are also simple, but this time largely due to a limitation of options. If you’re about ready to deposit or withdraw your hard earned Canadian Dollars then you’ll need to do so through either Interac or credit card.
Depositing is easy and instant, and you can get started from as little as C$10. But remember, anything below C$50 won’t qualify you for the welcome bonus, so give it some thought before using up your only chance at a first deposit.
Withdrawals are a slightly different story. If you’re using a Credit Card then you can expect to wait anything from 3 to 7 days for the cash to hit your account. On the other hand, Interac is instant. The minimum withdrawal for either method is C$10. Simple Casino have a super speedy withdrawal approval time (or processing time), currently averaging between 1 and 3 hours. This sort of speed is usually indicative of an efficient team behind the scenes, which will benefit players in every aspect.
Although Simple Casino doesn’t charge any withdrawal fees, there can be some differences between the amount you withdraw in your own currency and the amount you receive in Euro or Canadian Dollars. These being the site’s only two accepted currencies.
As I mentioned above, this online casino is big on clean communication. This really came across with the robust set of FAQs available. Although plentiful, questions are divided neatly into popular topics, and set out so clearly that it’s easy to read through the information you need. I would recommend players with questions start here before moving on to the actual customer support team.
If the FAQs don’t contain what you need, you can move on to Live Chat. Canadians be warned, this service isn’t available around the clock. Instead, support is available between 9am and Midnight CET everyday. Your last port of call is Email, and the team can be reached via [email protected]
The welcome bonus is great, but it does build a wall and block out recreational players by requiring a minimum deposit of C$50. The wagering requirements of 40 x are also pretty steep. Strangely, this online casino doesn’t promote any sort of VIP or Loyalty Program. Perhaps this is done in an effort to follow their ‘simple’ ethos. Personally, I fell that the lack of such a program doesn’t knock off any points, as the majority of these rarely offer any true value anyway.
In short? Come to Simple Casino if you want a clean and highly functional gaming experience. But don’t do it for the magnificent promotions and frequent offers, because you’ll find none of that here.
