Established by Betit Operation Ltd Casinos in 2013, Thrills Casino is an online casino with a focus on pokies and video poker, though they also boast a huge variety in other games. One of the most astounding features of this relatively new site is the massive live casino, which at the time of writing this article had a total of 38 active rooms.
Thrills Casino employs the use of several popular and powerful gaming software tools, including Ash Gaming, Betsoft, Play’N’Go, NextGen Gaming, Microgaming and NetEnt Playtech services.
Thrills Casino is also notable for a large amount of restricted countries, with the full list as follows: Afghanistan, Algeria, American Samoa, Antarctica, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Comoros, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Faroe Islands, France, French Guiana, French Polynesia, French Southern Territories, Greenland, Guadalupe, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Martinique, Mayotte, Myanmar [Burma], New Caledonia, Northern Mariana Islands, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Réunion, Saint Barthéley, Saint Martin, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Svalbard and Jan Mayen, Syria, Turkey, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, United States, Wallis and Futuna, Yemen and the Aland Islands.
They current hold licenses with the Malta Gaming Authority, Curacao eGaming and the UK Gambling Commission.
The group behind Thrills Casino also operates two other popular online casinos, the Kaboo Casino and the SuperLenny Casino.
Their business is registered in Central North Business Centre, Level 5 Fawwara Lane Sliema SLM 1670, Malta.
Thrills Casino operates entirely online, which is split into both regular and app play for mobile devices. This is another website that claims that the main website can be still be accessed and played through a mobile device, but use of the app is recommended in these situations in order to maximize efficiency and reduce unnecessary data usage.
This casino is currently available in five languages, English, Deutsch, Svenska, Finnish and Norsk.
Having access to such a wide range of powerful software means the Thrills Casino has a fantastic choice of games available. These range from multiple forms of the classics such as baccarat, roulette and poker to an enormous offering of both classic and video pokies. Thrills even runs seasonal events, with an entire section being dedicated to Christmas themed games at the time of writing.

Thrills Casino includes a live chat, though this only runs between 10:00 and 24:00 CET, with questions outside of this timeframe being created as messages from the main site which are then sent as emails to the staff to respond to during working hours.
They also have a small section detailing where you can get help if you suffer from issues relating to problem gambling, though they don’t any software solutions of limits and self-imposed bans that some other sites offer.
Thrills Casino Design and Usability
The design of this site is based around a simple blue and white color scheme, with a lot of effort and attention being put into the flash powered frames and site navigation buttons. While this means a simple and easy to follow layout it also means that access might be problematic for those running on older software and hardware, and especially with those running the main site through a mobile device, or those with overzealous ad-blockers.
Provided you have a relatively up-to-date or even just middling setup this should be an issue, as despite the reliance on keeping things modern the site still runs well, and loads quickly.
As mentioned, the live casino on Thrills Casino is an impressive offering, with 38 active tables being available at the time of writing. These tend towards attractive, young female dealers and are split across a variety of popular games.
Included in the live casino are: 2 forms of hold’em (Casino and Ultimate Texas style), 22 blackjack tables (including blackjack party and multiple VIP tables), 8 roulette tables (including French, London, and Svensk targeted tables), 4 baccarat tables and 2 poker tables (three card and Caribbean Stud).
Unlike most online casinos that offer apps, Thrills Casino does not appear to link their app from their webpage, though there is one available. To find this app you are required to search the Google Play or iTunes store, depending on your device.
In order to use that app on Android devices you require Android version 6.0 or higher, with the iOS version also requiring at least the 6.0 firmware.
In addition to this there are claims on other websites that the main site itself runs perfectly well on a mobile device, though whether or not this is true depends on the power of your own device and how well you can tolerate the size scaling which occurs when running desktop websites on mobile devices.
HOW TO REGISTER
Registration can be accessed from the main page of the site, with a prompt dropping down from the top of the page. Please note that some forms of adblocking software can interfere with these dropdown frames, so if it doesn’t appear for you try adding their website to your whitelist.
The registration form itself is split into the two sections below, with no email verification required.
The first form includes basic account information.
The second form includes more personal and location information.
Thrills Casino offers the following forms of withdrawal: Neteller, Visa, Skrill and Instant Bank Transfer, this selection isn’t quite as up to snuff as other gaming sites, but they do appear to be as reliable in these withdrawals as anyone else.
The shortest withdrawal times for these funds is between 0-24 hours for EWallets, with the longest withdrawals sitting at between 2 and 5 days for bank transfers, credit and debit cards. This is on top of the pending time of 0-24 hours.
One thing that really sets out Thrills Casino from the rest is that they offer a max daily withdrawal limit of £50,000, far above what most sites offer, and these limits are extended further for VIP players.
Starting with an unusually large bonus deposit of €1,500 (double what you put in) for your first deposit, with a minimum deposit €100 required for activation. They also offer five free spins on one of their top slot machines each day for the first four days of membership.
The second and third deposits customers make offer a 50% bonus of up to €600, with the forth offering a 100% bonus up to €200.
From here the site offers an additional Bonus-O-Meter that charges as you play real money games, with multiple levels unlocking which give you a variety of free slot spins. There are even hidden bonuses within games which give a boost to this meter.
Our Experience and General Reviews
In my time with Thrills Casino I have to say that I am impressed with what is on offer. The sheer volume of games on display, especially slot games, is among the best, and this is something that online reviews tend to agree on.
What they also tend to agree on is that customer support times can be longer than anticipated when not within operating hours. While this is to be expected with a website without 24 hour support there are those who claim that this left them with a bad taste in their mouths, though many others claim that since these complaints the issue has been assuaged.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
Thrills Casino offers a lot in the way of games, and there are few that can meet the sheer quantity, especially when it comes to slot games. By utilizing some of the most popular and powerful software on the market they can deliver many of the popular games offered by the larger sites, and even some more that they don’t.
The only area where this casino fails in comparison to other casinos is its customer support service, which may suffer due to not being as staffed as it could be but, as was mentioned earlier, this appears to be an issue which Thrills Casino is aware of and is making moves to patch.
General consensus on Thrills Casino paints the site as trustworthy, prolific in terms of offered games, and fair when it comes to payout.
With older complaints regarding customer support now being addressed the only real complains left seem to be regarding that it can be difficult to qualify for the bonus payouts, though this is a complaint that is common to most online gaming services.
Thrills casino does not offer the largest online presence of online gambling organizations, but there are much larger sites that do much worse. While their Twitter account is all but dead, not having been updated since 2014, their Facebook account is still quite active and updating, with staff detailing promotions, game winners and upcoming events.
The more active of their social media accounts is on Facebook.
The twitter side is far less active, and could be considered dead at this point.
Thrills Casino appears by all accounts be a casino that knows what it wants to do, and does it well. While its site does seem lacking in some key information it also runs well, and loads quickly. Combine this with an enormous game selection, staff who are genuinely concerned with improving their service and an interesting system of rewards and you have a site that fights well, though could do with some improvements. Definitely worthy of a look, especially for those interested in slots and live dealers
