Oshi Casino also offers one of the best problem gambling sections of any casino website, which earns them some real points from our team.
Oshi Casino Design and Usability
The design of Oshi Casino seems to be based around the little mascot, who I can only assume is called Oshi. This cute little guy, combined with background images taken directly from urban Japan lead me to believe that this casino is meant to inspire thoughts of the land of the rising sun. There could probably have been more effort expended here to bring these together, as the website itself is rather standard, and could easily be anywhere in world, that is if the mascot and background languages were changed. It could also be that this was a conscious choice, just modern uncomplicated Japanese gambling.
When it comes to usability this is a website which fits somewhere in the middle of the pack. Navigation of the website is simple and quick, with the website appearing both responsive and reliable. Especially great is the menu which can be found on the left side of the page. This section allows users to quickly sort through all that is offered, by both type of game and software provider. Great work here, and a great way to work with the enormous amount of games which are offer.
There is no official phone app available from Oshi Casino. It is, however, designed to run on most mobile devices. Simply visit the website from a mobile device to be forwarded to a mobile version of the website. While there are a few games which will be unavailable on mobile devices, most will run perfectly fine.
- Compatible Systems
Mobile devices capable of running HTML5 should work with this site just fine. Specifically this means somewhere in the area of:
- Apple iOS 7.0.X and above
- Android 3.X and above
- Windows Phone 7 and above
- Blackberry OS 10 and above.
It might also run on some devices older than the ones listed, though generally this is not recommended.

Our Experience and General Reviews
My experience with this casino has been nothing but positive. Everything on the website ran well for me, and during the entire reviewing process I had no issue, even with my low powered mobile device.
General reviews of Oshi Casino rate it very high. Most review sites place it around the 4-5 star range.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
When it comes to games offered by this casino, Oshi comes somewhere among the top of the pack. They have a huge amount of software providers here, with hundreds of games on offer. Many casinos only use one provider, so Oshis use of over ten of them really helps it stand out.
The wagering requirements for the site are also decent, so its nice not having to waste time reaching them.
The bonuses from this casino are also some of my favourites, especially in the ability to customise your welcome bonus. The 17% cashback from all bets going into Oshi bonus points isn't too bad either.
Another point where this casino really stands out is in the help sections. These are all extremely useful for both those who wish to talk with live support and those who want to try working out any issues for themselves. The problem gambling section here is also worth noting again, Oshi have really done a fantastic job in this regard.
General consensus on Oshi Casino is that it has a great selection of games, and works quite well.
Popular gaming ranking site Askgamblers.com has it at 9.1/10, with casinolistings.com rating it at 9/10, vegasmaster.com giving it an 82% and wizardofodds.com giving it a 4.9/5.
A solid entry here in terms of Facebook social media, with Oshi claiming nearly 2000 followers. The last update for this came around a weak prior to the writing of this review, which is also great.
Unfortunately they do not appear to offer anything in the way of a Twitter page, which is a little bit of a letdown. OUR RATING
An easy casino to rate, and an easy casino to love. This is a website which excels in almost every area, with the only real minor letdown coming in the rather uninspired theme. Aside from this one issue the site is fantastic, with a great selection of games and bonuses and one of the best help sections around. I came into this review thinking that I might only be able to recommend this website to users interested in BitCoin gambling, but Oshi is much more than that. One of the best sites available, regardless of the currency you want to use.
