Genesis Casino UK Casino Review

Score: 4/5
 

Are you ready for this year’s latest casino launch? We thought we were and then Genesis Casino came along and exceeded our expectations! This 2018 UK casino feels like a breath of fresh air, which is interesting considering the theme of the casino is outer space.


Altitude aside, Genesis Casino is a fresh face on the casino industry scene and we couldn’t wait to get stuck in to all its features and give you the lowdown on what you can expect. Get your space suit ready and prepare for take-off – Genesis Casino is about to blast into orbit!

Welcome Bonus

A good casino will always pay extra attention to the kind of welcome bonus it offers prospective players. Genesis may be the new kid on the block but the welcome bonus they offer is certainly up to industry standards and, more importantly, in line with player expectations.

  • First deposit – 100% up to £100 + 300 free spins
  • Second deposit – 50% up to £300
  • Third deposit – 25% up to £300

Make your first deposit to claim the most generous of the bonuses on offer, with Genesis Casino doubling your money and throwing in a handsome 300 free spins on top of that.

Taking the whole package into account, players are looking at £700 in bonus cash and 300 free spins in total, a solid welcome bonus by any account.

The wagering requirements on both the bonus cash and the free spins stands at x40. The welcome bonus will be triggered when a minimum of £10 is deposited. The free spins will be awarded in batches of 30 over the ten days following the deposit. Deposits made via Skrill or Neteller are not eligible to trigger this bonus. Terms and conditions apply.

Range of Games

When it comes to games, Genesis Casino hasn’t tried to overreach when it comes to its games library, probably a good thing when you consider that they are still starting out. Still, any casino player will find something to their liking here, as all the major categories have been covered adequately and over 1,300 titles on offer.

  • Slots: You’ll find the latest new releases and favourite old classics in this broad category. Jackpots are also on offer, with about 30 different options available.
  • Table games: Play an impressive range of poker, baccarat, roulette and blackjack variants in this section. Note that Roulette also has its own separate page, probably because there are so many variations on offer that they couldn’t all fit in just one.
  • Live Casino: Bring the thrill of a land-based casino right into your home thanks to the range of live games on offer. Play blackjack, roulette, poker and baccarat and feel like you’re right there at the green baize tables.

When it comes to game providers, Genesis Casino has picked some of the most well respected names in the business. NetEnt, Quickspin, Play’n GO, Microgaming, NYX, Elk Studios, NextGen, Aristocrats, Lucky Streak, and Evolution are all represented in one or more game categories at this casino.

Layout and Usability

This casino has a dark colour scheme. After all, there’s very little light in outer space. Still, it doesn’t come across as gloomy or foreboding. Indeed, it highlights the potential and excitement of exploration and reaching places that lie just beyond what we can see.

Genesis Casino is easy to navigate. The menu bar at the top is home to the Log In button and the search bar. A menu button on the left-hand side launches more options, including buttons to take you to the VIP, Promotions, Games and Payment Methods pages.

Navigation on mobile is also easy and intuitive, closely resembling the way the desktop site works and making it easy to switch between one and the other, for gambling on the go.

Customer service is accessible via the live chat feature, email or telephone, and the FAQ page covers most common question asked.

Deposit and withdrawals at Genesis Casino

Again, Genesis Casino has covered all of its bases in this section too, offering the most popular and recognisable payment methods for players to deposit and withdraw. You can use VISA,
Mastercard, iDEAL, Trustly, Skrill, Neteller, Zimpler, Paysafecard, UPayCard, or Entropay to top up your casino account.

Accepted currencies include Euro, SEK, NOK, GBP, USD and more.

Promotions for existing customers

It’s not just new players that are treated to some great opportunities at Genesis Casino. Returning players are also made to feel right at home thanks to a selection of recurring bonuses and promos.

  • Weekly bonus mission – Deposit £50 or more between Monday and Thursday and Genesis Casino will reward you with a 25% bonus up to £100, to help you explore the universe
  • Every £50 you deposit and wager with at Genesis earns you a ticket into a prize draw, with the winner receiving an amazing cruise vacation.
  • Lightspeed Monday – Deposit and wager £10 or more between Thursday and Sunday to receive free spins in your email inbox on Monday.

VIP/Loyalty Scheme

We couldn’t glean all that much about the Genesis Casino VIP program from the VIP page. In fact, the casino might want to look into that. But we did learn that there is a VIP program and that the perks associated with it are pretty out of this world.

Aside from exclusive bonuses and the services of an account manager – standard fare for many VIP programs – Genesis Casino also offers its loyal players exclusive VIP events, a monthly prize draw, a personal withdrawal service, holiday packages and flights to Las Vegas.

Special Features

The theme at Genesis Casino is probably its most obvious special feature and it does add an extra layer of intrigue and interest to the experience.

It is fully mobile compatible, with over 100 titles available to play on your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or tablet.

Other betting options

Genesis Casino is purely aimed at casino fans and as such does not offer sports or e-sports betting. There’s no telling what this casino may offer in the future, however. Still, it doesn’t feel like there’s anything missing at the moment either. We’ll have to wait and see!

Conclusion

Genesis Casino is a new casino for 2018 and right out of the gate, it has prioritised player experience. It is intuitive and easy to use, across platforms, and offers a respectable range of games in a whole host of categories.

The VIP page could do with a bit more explanation of what players can expect from the program.
We’re quite happy with the range of currencies and payment methods available, as they include a whole host of convenient options.

Overall, we can confidently recommend this new UK casino and expect that most players will stick around for a long time yet. Up, up and away!
