ShadowBet offers a larger than average welcome bonus for all new players. On top of this, there are ongoing promotions both on a weekly basis and on a ‘seasonal’ (time limited) basis. We will outline the details of these various bonuses in this section.
Note: If you are from the UK deposits made via Neteller and Skrill are ineligible for the welcome bonus. Use another deposit method if you want to claim some or all of the welcome package.
- First Deposit Bonus – As soon as you register an account, you can claim 100% up to £100. The free spins will also be triggered and will be dished out at a rate of 20 per day for 10 days. A £10 minimum deposit is required and x35 wagering terms apply.
- Reload Bonus 1 – You can then claim a second deposit bonus of 50% up to £400. The same minimum deposit of £10 and x35 wagering terms apply.
- Reload Bonus 2 – Another deposit bonus worth 25% up to £500 is then available. A £10 minimum deposit and x35 wagering terms apply here too, as with all the bonuses.
- Ouroboros Rewards – As you play your favourite games, you will notice your ‘progress bar’ filling up. Each time it fills, ShadowBet’s signature Ouroboros game will launch giving you a chance to win free spins and much more.
- Happy Hours Free Spins – To celebrate getting over hump day, ShadowBet gives you 10 free spins every Wednesday. You must have made a deposit of at least £10 in the week before. X35 wagering terms apply.
- Seasonal Bonus Offers – Whether it’s Christmas, Easter, Halloween, or anything in between, there will be a promo running to celebrate. This could be free spins, extra bonus cash, cashback, or something else entirely. Always check the specific terms and conditions of the offer before accepting.
We like the multi-stage welcome package as it allows you to decide if this is the casino for you at stage one, then capitalize if so. £1,000 is a lot of free casino cash but do be aware, the wagering terms apply to both the deposit + bonus, so are higher than they first appear.
We do like the ongoing bonuses, especially the Ouroboros rewards. This allows those who play most to get the most in return, which is how it should be.
It’s probably no surprise that the vast majority of the games at ShadowBet are video slots. There are literally hundreds to choose from. That said, there’s also a pretty decent selection of casino table and card games, so if you like to take a break from spinning the reels and play a few hands of baccarat or blackjack, you will be able to do so here.
We always take a close look at game software/quality as well as variety. NetEnt, Microgaming, Betsoft, Play n’ Go, Yggdrasil, WMS, NYX, and Evolution Gaming are all either industry leaders or award-winning up and comers, so we have absolutely no concerns about game quality.
Table & Card Games
In this section, we will outline the digital card and table games available.
Don’t forget to check out the ‘ShadowBet live games’ section below for further information.
Baccarat Variants – Good old fashioned Punto Banco is available in the virtual casino.
Blackjack Variants – Both Classic Blackjack and Pontoon are offered.
Roulette Variants – Both American and European roulette are offered in the virtual casino.
This is a limited selection as compared to the numerous variants you might find elsewhere but it will serve you well if you’re a casual player who sticks to the popular versions of these games.
This is the area in which ShadowBet begins to excel. There are tonnes of games from some of the best slots software firms on the web. It’s always encouraging to see a mix of firms in the lineup.
We recommend kicking things off with Lost Vegas, Superman, Bloodsuckers, Immortal Romance, Jimi Hendrix, King Cashalot, Motorhead, Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Guns n’ Roses, Twin Spin, Foxin’ Wins, Planet of the Apes, Thunderstruck II, Crime Scene, Koi Princess, Drive, Aloha!, Reel Steal, Zombies, Butterfly Staxx, Lights, Game of Thrones, or Taco Brothers. There are many more slots to choose from but we like these best.
There are several progressive jackpot slots including Arabian Nights, Major Millions, King Cashalot, Treasure Nile, The Slotfather, Mega Moolah, and Lotsa Loot. You can find the entire selection under ‘jackpots’ on the main menu.
Game Recommendation – Gonzo’s Quest is a super fun slot from NetEnt themed on a Spanish conquistador in search of treasure in South America. This slot has cascading reels, meaning symbols fall from above rather than spin on the reels. Winning combinations explode and are replaced by new ones. This can lead to multiple back to back wins, sending the little 3D Gonzo in the bottom corner into a frenzy, not to mention seriously swelling your bank account!
Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better are your only options as far as video poker at ShadowBet is concerned.
The ShadowBet live casino offers baccarat, blackjack, and roulette.
Several versions of each game are offered including both standard and HD versions.
If you need to reach the ShadowBet customer service team you can do so via:
E-Mail – Drop a line to email@example.com as an alternative to the live chat feature.
Live Chat – You will see the little green light with the message ‘We are online’ beside it in the bottom left of the screen at all times. Just click it to speak to a customer service agent.
If you want to make a deposit or withdrawal at ShadowBet you can do so via:
- Credit card
- Debit card
- Bank Transfer
We would like to again draw your attention to the fact that deposits made via Neteller and Skrill will be disqualified from receiving the welcome bonus. Use another method to begin with then switch if these are your preferred payment methods.
ShadowBet is off to a great start as far as we are concerned, and we can find very little to pick at with regards this site.
Of course, wagering terms could always come down further or be eliminated altogether as is the case at some pioneering online casinos. It would also be nice to see a bigger selection of video poker games.
If you can live with those two minor things this makes for a fantastic choice of online casino. We definitely recommend ShadowBet if you’re looking for a new casino site.
