We’re going to have to admit it a little, but online casinos are beginning to look a little bit ‘samey’. There are thousands available online now, so it’s understandable that a common thread has developed.
Thankfully, not all online casinos are content to toe the same line as every other online casino. One of those names is Codeta Casino, which describes itself as “new and revolutionary” – we perhaps would not go that far, but Codeta is a little different as it places the emphasis very much on Live Table Games as opposed to the traditional aspect of online slots and software-based versions of games such as blackjack and roulette.
Codeta Casino is powered by software provided by EveryMatrix Limited, and the site runs via licences issued by Curaçao eGaming and the Malta Gaming Authority.
There are two welcome offers available to new players at Codeta Casino – a ‘double your deposit’ welcome bonus and a deal where you can get a ten percent top-up on your winnings, or ten percent cash back on all your losses in your first week.
We’re going to take a detailed look at that welcome bonus offer first of all. As long as you make a deposit of at least €10, any deposit you make as your first deposit will be doubled by the casino up to that €300 limit.
This money is paid as bonus cash, and as such it must be wagered a specific number of times before you can cash it out. To find out how much you need to wager, multiply the value of the bonus you received thirty-five times. You have thirty days from the award of your bonus to meet wagering expectations.
Not all games contribute equally towards your wagering needs. You will need to consult the following table in order to work out the contribution of any particular game:
- 100% – Video slots
- 25% – Roulette, blackjack, casino hold’em, baccarat, dice games and ‘all other’ table games
- 10% – Video poker, ‘Dead or Alive’, ‘Blood Suckers’, ‘Mega Joker’, ‘Jackpot 6000’
Note that you will have to use the bonus code ‘WELCOME’ when you make a deposit in order to get your hands on your bonus cash.
If you don’t like the idea of this welcome bonus offer, then instead you can take the second deal that is on offer here – either a ten percent bonus on all your winnings, or ten percent cash back on all your losses. If you choose to take this deal, use the bonus code ‘WELCOME2017’ when you make your deposit.
- Top-up is calculated as follows: Wins – bets * 10%
- Cash back is calculated as follows: Bets – wins * 10%
This offer lasts for the first week of your membership of Codeta Casino. Your cash (if applicable) will be paid after this week as bonus money. You will need to wager this bonus money just once over before you can withdraw it, within seven days of its award. The maximum payout the casino will permit is £3,000.
Range of Games
As we might have mentioned in passing, the emphasis here is very much on live table games. All of the most popular table games are covered – roulette, blackjack, casino hold’em, baccarat and three-card brag – and there are multiple tables available of each game so you should always be able to find a seat.
Most of live tables here are supplied by live casino experts Evolution Gaming.
Of course, not all casino players are enchanted by the thought of playing at a live casino, so it’s good news for them that there are plenty of software titles available as well.
Online slots at Codeta Casino are provided by some of the biggest names in the gaming industry – NetEnt, Microgaming, and Play’n GO. Some of the very best titles when it comes to slots that are available here include Aloha! Cluster Pays, Samba Carnival and Wonky Wabbits.
If you want to play table games but don’t want to ‘go live’ then you don’t have to at Codeta Casino. There are software-based versions of all your favourites, plus several video poker titles and dice games including Ludo!
Pros and Cons
- One of the best live casinos going
- Ten percent cashback or top-up on your first week losses
- Very informative site
- No worries if you don’t ‘like it live’ – online slots too!
- Site could have been better planned
Layout and usability
As soon as you arrive on the landing page of Codeta Casino you understand that you are some place that’s not quite the norm. Most online casinos instantly boast about the number of online slots that they carry, or the special offers and deals for new players, but Codeta Casino has an alternative approach. Instead, it really pushes its live casino offerings by default, listing all the live games and live tables that are available.
All this is presented in a very stylish and appealling manner, with large images and thumbnails. In short, Codeta Casino just oozes class straight from the get-go.
You may think you are thwarted at playing live games at Codeta Casino if you want to play using a mobile device, but nothing could be further from the truth. Mobile tech is so good these days that playing any of the many live tables games available at Codeta Casino is simply not an issue!
All of the live casino games are available via your smart phone or tablet. All you need to do is head to the Codeta Casino site on your chosen mobile device and start playing! Note that to even sample the live games that are available you need to be a full member of this online casino. Unlike software-based titles such as slots you cannot play live casino games for ‘play money’.
Everything else you’ll need to do at this online casino, such as adding to or withdrawing from your casino account, can be done via the mobile-optimised Codeta Casino site.
Promotions for existing customers
Once your welcome bonuses have been exhausted at Codeta Casino you still have the chance to take advantage of a bonus deal – every week! Once a week you can indulge yourself with a one hundred percent weekly bonus up to a maximum of €60. The same T&Cs apply to this bonus as to the 100% welcome bonus.
You can also make those boring old Sundays pass by a little faster by playing at Codeta Casino and the guys in charge are willing to pull out all the stops to do this. You can grab yourself a twenty-five percent bonus up to £50 each and every Sunday. This bonus comes with wagering expectations of forty (40) times the bonus amount, and you’ll have thirty days by which to meet your play-through requirements.
There is a VIP scheme available at Codeta Casino, but you’ll be hard pressed to find out any details about it at the site. For some reason this casino likes to keep its cards very close to its chest in this regard. We contacted support who said “our VIP manager will be in touch with the users eligible for the VIP status directly”. If you’re one of the lucky ones, make sure you tell the rest of the wagering world about it!
Aside from the emphasis on live casino play, there’s nothing really here that qualifies as being particularly ‘special’ – no gamification factors, for example. Codeta might think that their ‘live casino’ emphasis is special enough, and in some ways we’d agree with them, but a few extra perks would not go amiss.
Other betting options
It casino play all the way, here. No sports betting, bingo or poker room options are available.
How you feel about Codeta Casino depends we guess upon how you feel about live casino play. There’s perhaps no more thrilling way to gamble online, and there’s no closer way to get to the action if you’re playing at a live casino using your PC, laptop or mobile device.
However, live casino play is not for everyone, and thankfully Codeta Casino has recognised this and offers plenty of alternatives to live casino play for its players. We’d like to see a few more non-live table game options though, and for the non-live aspects of the site to be as excellent as the live gaming options.
Still, if you are really into live casino play, then we can think of barely any options that are better for you than live play at Codeta Casino.
