It’s the ultimate portmanteau of an online casino, one that combines the word ‘cash’ with the word ‘casino’ to come up with ‘Cashino Casino‘, the place where (hopefully) you can win oodles of loverly cash!
The Cashino Casino is another online casino that’s owned and regulated by Merkur Interactive, a company that is based in Berlin, Germany, and Malta. Merkur have been real busy bodies of late, making plenty of amazing online opportunities available for their successful brands such as merkurmagic.es, and Merkur-win.it, as well of course as the amazing Cashino Casino.
Unlike most online casinos, the Cashino Casino has a firm real world presence too, with ‘Cashino Gaming Centres’ operating throughout the UK. At these places you can play the latest, red-hot video slots and video-based classic casino games.
Cashino Casino operates via licences issued by the Malta Gambling Authority and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission.
The cash … or should that be cashino? … starts a-rollin’ as soon as you sign up on the dotted line for an account here. As a new player at the site you are eligible for a one hundred percent welcome bonus up to a maximum of £250. The minimum amount you need to spend as your first deposit is a measly £10. Whatever you deposit, your initial deposit amount will be matched in full up to that maximum of £250 – that gives you a maximum of £500 to play with as your first deposit, which you must admit is pretty amazing.
In order to magically turn your welcome bonus into cash that you can withdraw, you need to fulfil wagering conditions. You need to wager your first-time bonus amount a minimum of forty times and you must meet your wagering requirements within thirty days, which gives you a whole month in which to meet them.
Not all games count equally towards your wagering expectations. Slots and scratch cards contribute one hundred percent to your wagering, but stud poker games only count fifty percent; roulette, baccarat and sic bo games count twenty percent, and blackjack and craps games contribute only ten percent. This means that if you choose to meet wagering solely by playing blackjack, your expectations will rise to four hundred times.
Note that the games Captain Stack, Eye of Horis, Fruitopia, Fruitinator and Magic Mirror Deluxe II all do not make any contribution towards your wagering expectations. Make sure you read the site’s full T&Cs before you take up this (or any) offer so you fully understand what’s expected of you.
Range of games
The leading attraction at the Cashino Casino is the site’s staggering array of slots games. The main array of slots is provided by one of the industry leaders – WMS. This company has been making both real world slots and online slots for many a year, and they’ve certainly honed their talents over time. Among the best WMS games here are Bruce Lee and Raging Rhino.
In the slots department able backup is provided by Blueprint Gaming, Barcrest Games, Edict (Merkur Gaming) and SG Gaming. You really will never be short of a brand new slots game to try your luck at.
If slots fail to get you excited, then there are plenty of alternative pastimes here as well, including a multitude of traditional table games. You’ll be able to play roulette or blackjack, and there are multiple varieties of each. There’s even a Monopoly version of roulette.
Completing the gaming line up here are an arcade version of bingo, and a version of video poker called ‘Las Vegas Poker’.
Sadly, there are no live casino options available at the Cashino Casino.

Layout and usability
They certainly like things big and bold at the Cashino Casino. The site is full of big, brassy thumbnails and the smaller the casino browser window gets, the bigger the thumbails seem to grow! You certainly will not need a magnifying glass for this site!
Game selection is very, very simple. You can select either slots (in the 5-10, 15-20 or 25+ line range depending upon your preferences), table games, or ‘other’ games via the menu bar. Once you’ve done that, the corresponding thumbnails will pop out of the screen at you.
There’s a menu at the top of the screen too. Here you can select all available games, read about the latest promos the site is running, or read the latest news at the site. You can also read about Merkur, or find any one of the countless ‘Cashino’ Gaming Centres that are open all over the UK – there are in fact well over one hundred real-world Cashino sites available in England, Wales and Scotland.
The mobile app for the Cashino Casino is one of the best-looking we’ve ever seen. It’s just as easy to use as the desktop site, and simply works brilliantly.
Promotions for existing players
There are plenty of promotions here for existing Cashino Casino players, so your custom is not simply forgotten once this place has managed to secure your sign-up.
First up is the weekly cashback bonus available when you play roulette. This happens every Tuesday and if you have a bad day on the roulette wheels then don’t worry as you can claim back a maximum of £250 on ten percent of your losses.
On Thursdays it is the turn of slots, and in particular the incredibly popular slots game Rainbow Riches. If you have a bad run on this slots game you can again claim back ten percent of your losses up to that maximum of £250.
Check out this site’s promotion pages for all the news you could possibly want in order to receive details about the fabulous bonuses that are always on offer here.
Cashino Casino has a stunning VIP or loyalty scheme that extends beyond their online empire and can be used at the real-world Cashino Gaming Centres as well. All Cashino members receive a real or virtual ‘C-Card’, which contains points, and these points can be converted into cash and shopping vouchers.
If you deposit at least five pounds when you open an account here you will receive five hundred C-Card points, absolutely free! You can exchange your C-Card points at any time and five hundred C-Card points are worth £5 – it really is that straightforward.
To keep on earning C-Card points you need to keep playing – virtual or real-world. For every £10 wagered, you will receive one reward point. You can exchange your points (once you have amassed five hundred of them) for Marks & Spencer or Love2Shop shopping vouchers, or to use at Cashino venues.
There’s no doubt that Cashino is one company that really knows how to reward its more frequent players.
Sometimes it can be very easy to come unstuck while playing at an online casino, so it’s a relief that help is available here. To summon a gallant casino knight in shining armour, just click on the chat bubble at the top right-hand corner of the screen. A chat window will open, and soon you will receive all the necessary levels of help.
If your query is not of an urgent nature, then you might like to instead use the site’s extensive FAQ pages. All the most common queries are answered there, so with a bit of luck you might find the answer to your issue(s) without summoning the magic casino chat fairy.
You’ll also find information at the site about all the many games that are available. This means you can get an idea about any game before you take the plunge and chuck in some of your cash.
Other betting options
We’d like to say that the realm of Cashino Casino extends beyond online and real-world casino gaming (i.e. an online sports betting site, dedicated online poker room or bingo hall), but as it (currently) doesn’t, we can’t.
It’s rare that a company manages to combine both real world and online gaming experiences (off of the top of our heads we can only think of Genting Casinos and Grosvenor Casinos), and it’s certainly rare that two such experiences are merged so seamlessly, as they are here. In a manner of speaking, we are saying ‘kudos’ to Merkur for the wonder that is the Cashino Casino.
We really do love that welcome bonus and the loyalty scheme which is one of the most generous that we have ever encountered, however, not all is altogether rosy – we’d love to see a few more table games beyond roulette and blackjack, and the addition of a live casino would be a real boon too.
That’s why we can only give the Cashino Casino four stars out of the maximum of five. Don’t let you put you off in any way, though – this is a mighty fine gaming establishment that is well worth your esteemed custom!
