Spela may sound like an odd name for an online casino but it actually could not be more appropriate. Spela is Swedish for ‘to play or gamble’. So you see, the site really does offer exactly what it says on the tin. But we all know that you go to an online casino to place bets, try your luck and implement your gaming strategy, so what else is there to learn about Spela Casino?
We’re taking a look under the bonnet of this rather new site, which only hit the market in 2018. Does it make the cut in the Canadian online gambling market? Across promotions, support and payment processes, we’re about to discuss it all.
- As of April 2019, Spela Casino accepts Canadian players
- Spela Casino accepts ecoPayz, Interac and Instadebit (among others) as a payment method
- The site uses Evolution Gaming as its live game provider
- You’ll benefit from virtually instant withdrawals
Spela Casino offers an impressive welcome bonus of C$1000 + 100 free spins for every new player. This bonus is divided over the first four deposits you make. Here’s a breakdown:
|Deposit||Match||Bonus Money||Free Spins||Bonus Code|
|1st||100%||up to C$200||100||/|
|2nd||50%||up to C$200||/||SPELA 2|
|3rd||25%||up to C$300||/||SPELA 3|
|4th||25%||up to C$300||/||SPELA 4|
Together, as you can see for yourself, these four bonuses make up the maximum of C$1000 and 100 free spins. The free spins can be used on Starburst, however, if you’re not from British Columbia – you can check with customer support on what other slot you can use them on.
20 free spins will be credited instantly the second you make your first deposit. The rest of the 80 free spins will be distributed 20 per day over 4 days.

Spela Casino definitely slants heavily toward slots. In fact, half of the sign up bonus is 100 Free Spins on one of the most popular slots out there right now.
But if slots aren’t your thing, hope is certainly not lost. With over 1,300 games in the ranks, there’s bound to be something you like.
The online casino caters for all experience levels, and would feel welcoming to both a novice and a seasoned player. Games come from heavy hitters in the industry, such as Microgaming, as well as from newer developers. That means you can expect both quality and cutting edge offerings.
Initially you might find yourself overwhelmed by options. It’s like a restaurant menu that has too much of everything and you suddenly lose your appetite. Spela Casino has attempted to fix this issue by creating a catalogue divided into categories and subcategories. You’ll be able to choose between casino games, slots, live dealer games and more. Alternatively you can browse the ‘Hot Games’ group with sets out the most popular of the bunch right now.
I like the fact that you can opt to play games like blackjack, poker and roulette for free or for real money, so Spela Casino is a good destination even if you’re not in the mood to commit to cash. It’s also a great opportunity to work on your game and practice before joining the real leagues. And because Spela partners with Evolution Gaming to host their live casino, you’ll find an impressive selection of live dealer games, ready to immerse you into a nail biting experience.
Canadians may find themselves limited
While Spela does host many, many games by developers who are available within Canada, there are also many games which would not be classed as compatible, such as games by NetEnt. We can’t say for sure, only launch day will truly tell, but Canadians may find their gaming pool somewhat narrowed compared to the casino’s European offering.
Here’s where Spela Casino is genuinely different from the majority of its competition.
Spela supports a fairly wide range of payment options for your deposits and withdrawals, such as ecoPayz, Interac and Instadebit, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that works for you. The withdrawal process is also really easy and current Spela Casino customers enjoy the ability to withdraw up to double the usual amount per day.
The even better news? This online casino will process your withdrawal in just five minutes if you’re using a well known e-wallet.
The wagering requirements for the Spela welcome bonus is 40x for each bonus amount. This means that if you deposit C$200 your first time and get C$200 in return, you would have to wager C$8000 before you can withdraw either your bonus or winnings.
The minimum deposit required to trigger the bonus is C$10 and the maximum withdrawal amount allowed when using bonus money is C$100. If you make your deposits using either Neteller or Skrill, you are not eligible for the bonus.
Spela Casino supports four languages, including English.
That means coming from Canada you should be able to get your message across just fine. As yet there’s no dedicated customer service line for Canadians, but I presume that will be posted upon the official launch date.
The really great thing about Spela is that you don’t even need to call in. They offer a 24 hour Live Chat service, so you can ask questions to your hearts content, at any hour of the day. This is probably one of the better customer support service offerings from the newer casino sites out there.
Spela Casino is little bit tough to make a final call on. I’m excited to see what the Canadian site looks like, but that also means that I can only make educated guesses at this point. Of course I do expect the gaming catalogue to fall slightly short, and I don’t believe bonuses will be the all-time best you can get. On the positive side of things, their Pay and Play feature plus the virtually instant withdrawals do boost the online casino up the ranks considerably. I suppose what it will come down to is what elements you value the highest. But in reality, only time will tell. I’m really looking forward to this one!
