Casilando Casino is a’new for 2017′ online casino that features a bright and attractive interface, dazzling bonuses and a wide range of the very best online casino games available. The site is operated by Imperium Network Solutions Limited and runs via UK Gambling Commission licence.
You are soon made to feel at home at the Casilando Casino, especially if you take advantage of the appealing welcome bonus that’s available here. If you sign up with these fun-loving guys, you’re entitled to claim ten FREE spins without having to make a deposit, plus there’s a one hundred percent welcome bonus too up to a total of £300, and another ninety free spins you can claim on top of that!
All your free spins can be enjoyed on any one of the following brilliant NetEnt games:
- Joker Pro
- Pyramid: Quest for Immortality
- Steam Tower
- Fruit Shop
All free spins winnings are paid out as bonus cash, and as such need to be wagered before a withdrawal can be made. The wagering requirement is thirty-five (35) times the amount that has been won.
To qualify for a welcome bonus, your initial deposit needs to be in excess of £20. Whatever the amount you deposit above this, the casino will match in bonus cash up to that £300 limit. Make sure you do not use either Skrill or Neteller when you make that first deposit, because if you do you will not receive a welcome bonus.
Once you’ve made your qualifying deposit you will also receive ninety free spins. Just like the no-deposit free spins, your winnings will be paid out as bonus cash and will be subject to standard wagering terms and conditions.

Range of games
The range of goodies that are available at this site are split into several convenient sections, but the areas that are most likely to grab your attention at Casilando Casino are slots, live, blackjack, roulette, table, poker, scratch, bingo and virtual.
The slots section has all the best and latest games from NetEnt, including Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild and Jack & the Beanstalk. In total this casino has a massive eighteen software providers, including Microgaming, Leander Games and NYX Gaming. There’s enough slotting action here to keep you entertained for months!
If you prefer the more sedate side of online casino play, then you’ll be pleased to hear that there are several versions apiece of blackjack, roulette, baccarat and casino poker. You’ll also find plenty of video poker titles, and online scratch cards.
The bingo section has four versions of arcade bingo, and the ‘virtual’ room contains three virtual soccer games which act like ‘pretend’ sports books.
Finally (!) you can experience some really intense action if you head to one of the two live casinos available at this site. Blackjack, baccarat, roulette, casino hold’em and three-card poker can all be enjoyed with live dealers via a live video feed.
Pros and Cons
- Excellent range of games from many top providers
- Top notch welcome bonus plus no-deposit free spins
- Desktop and mobile sites are very easy to use
- Easy-to-understand ‘VIP’ scheme
- More promos for existing players would be a bonus
Layout and usability
Thankfully, Casilando Casino is one of a growing number of online gambling dens that values simplicity. You do get a rotating ads banner, but that’s as flashy as this site gets, and that’s as flashy as this site needs to be.
The menus have been well thought out and you can swiftly find the right game for you with just a few button clicks. One neat feature that we always like to see is available here – you can filter the games via software provider.
There’s also the chance to get your name up in virtual lights – a scrolling list of the latest big winners slides up the screen via the left-hand panel.
Most of this goodness is available via the site’s mobile app, which is extremely convenient for both mobile and tablet users. Just hit up your browser on your device and head to the casino – the software will do the rest, so you can automatically access the mobile-optimised version of this site.
Promotions for existing customers
Existing clients at Casilando Casino have not been forgotten, although promos for them are a little thin on the ground. First up, there’s a ‘refer a friend’ bonus, so if you have a buddy who you think will enjoy a little hot online casino action, let both them and the casino know. If your friend likes what they see and they go on to make a deposit of at least £20, then you will be awarded £10 in bonus cash as a thank you.
The only other promo for regular players we could find at this site is known as the ‘Thursday Getaway’, and seems designed to ease you into your forthcoming weekend of online play. Every Thursday you can take advantage of an exclusive 50% deposit up to £250, plus there’s twenty free spins on a specified slot to boot. At the time of this review the slot in question was NetEnt’s Hawaiian-flavoured hit, Aloha! Cluster Pays.
Most online casinos now have loyalty or VIP schemes as they also known, but many are a little too complex for their own good and it’s hard to know just what benefits you are obtaining by being in one. Thankfully, that is not the case here. The ‘Casilando Loyalty Points’ scheme is straightforward and easy to wrap your grey matter around.
Every £10 you bet at Casilando Casino earn you loyalty points. You earn two loyalty points for wagering £10 on slots or scratch cards, one loyalty point for bingo and video poker, half a loyalty point for blackjack and a quarter of a loyalty point for roulette.
Once you have amassed 1,250 loyalty points its time to convert them into cold, hard cash. Every 1,250 loyalty points converted equates to £5 in cash. Note that loyalty point cash is paid as bonus money, so you have to meet wagering requirements before you can cash out.
Sadly Casilando Casino has not as yet seen fit to include any gamification factors into the way it operates. This is a straight-up online casino that’s all about playing games and (hopefully) winning some cash. If you are not bothered about badge-earning and achievement-unlocking, then this is not likely to duly bother you. We do like to see a little inventiveness what it comes to an online casino, but such are the offerings here at Casilando Casino we don’t think the lack of gamification factors is too detrimental to the overall experience.
Other betting options
Nope – nothing to see. Casilando Casino is all about slots, table games, live casino games and other casino-style wagering fun. If you want sports betting, a poker room or an online bingo hall, then you’ll need to go someplace else. Casilando does have a few bingo games, but not a dedicated bingo section as true online bingo lovers would be searching for.
Well, we’ve done our detective work and scoured every aspect of Casilando Casino so it’s time to give our final verdict. We thought long and hard and decided to award this online wagering site four stars out of five, but it was a darn close run thing as to awarding all five!
There’s a great deal we like here – the layout of the site, the welcome bonus including those no-deposit free spins and the range of games for example – but Casilando Casino is just a little bit lacking on three main fronts: promotions for existing players, no gamifaction factors and too few payment providers for deposits and withdrawals.
We really do love everything else, though. If you want to play online casino games to your heart’s content, then you really can’t go wrong if you register an account and start playing at Casilando Casino. Don’t forget to claim those enticing welcome offers!
