Café Casino was founded in 2016 and immediately made an impact on the US online casino market. The site features a nice, soft coffee-brown theme and a layout that is a lot like Bovada. Speaking of the layout, the site is organized in such a way that any game or page is extremely easy to access. The site’s homepage features a listing of the most popular games while a drop-down menu will allow you access any other page needed.
Even though this site is still somewhat new to the industry, the early reviews are wholly positive. Between the game selection and the overall ease of use presented by the site, there really isn’t much that people have been complaining about. The only complaints we did see were with regard to the available withdrawal options. Café Casino does not present players with a wealth of cash out options, this we cannot deny, but their withdrawal process is generally fast and easy to use.
At first glance you will find that almost all of the games at Café Casino are supplied by RTG, or Real Time Gaming. RTG has been creating casino games for well over a decade now and is regularly regarded as the one of the top producers of slot games. This makes sense seeing as the overwhelming majority of games at Café Casino are slot games of different varieties.
Rival is another software provider at Café Casino, however they mostly provide the casino games such as blackjack and roulette. The great thing about Café Casino’s software is that the games can be played via a downloadable application or via web browsers. Regardless of how you play, the overall functionality of the software is top drawer.
The games at Café Casino are segregated by category, and each category is listed under a drop-down menu towards the top of the homepage. As was mentioned above, it becomes obvious quickly that a large majority of the games on offer at slot games. Beyond that, most of these slots are newer video slots. Thanks to the existence of RTG software, the slot titles you will find are some of the newest and most popular. Of course, there also exists a selection of classic, reeled slot games, but the number of reeled slots pales in comparison to video slots.
Apart from slot games, you will find plenty of other casino games—some of which you may be familiar with and other titles that you may have never heard of before. As for the games you would expect to find, they are all there. Blackjack, roulette (American and European as well as a bunch of other variations), baccarat, and craps all exist. To be fair, there is not the greatest selection of games beyond the basics. Though you will find obscure games such as tri-card poker, most of the casino games are as standard as can be.
Video poker is another gaming category, but under this selection you will find no more than 10 titles. So while Café Casino does well to cover what any competent casino should have as far as game selection is concerned, they do not do the greatest job in offering the more obscure games. All in all, however, we have very few complaints as far as the holistic game selection at Café Casino is concerned.
Bonuses and promotions are found under the “promos and perks” tab. For new players, there are two bonuses that work with your first deposit. The standard bonus on offer is a 100% matching bonus with up to $1,000 in bonus monies available. Basically, if the first deposit you make after creating an account is $100, Café Casino will give you another $100 and you will have $200 with which to begin playing. There exists a 25x playthrough wagering requirement, and you will quickly learn that this is a bit lower than the typical 30x playthrough you will find offered on bonuses from other sites.
If you are more of a high-roller, there is an even better first deposit bonus for you to take advantage of. This bonus offers a 500% matching bonus with up to $5,000 in bonus monies available. Once again, if you deposit $100 initially, Café Casino will credit your account with $500 in bonus monies, giving you $600 with which to begin playing. Unfortunately, with this larger bonus comes a larger, 35x playthrough wagering requirement.
The great thing about Café Casino is that you do not even need to make a deposit in order to receive a bonus. Just for signing up, you will receive $10 in free chips. Basically, just for signing up you will be given $10 free in order to play just about any sort of casino game you would like. The catch is, however, you will need to make a deposit before any winnings stemming from the no deposit bonus.
Right now, this is one of the aspects of Café Casino that leaves us a bit disappointed. For making deposits, your only two options are to deposit via credit/debit card or via Bitcoin.
When it comes to cashing out, you can receive your winnings via a mailed check or via Bitcoin. Bitcoin casinos have the easiest method by which you can cash out in that all cash outs happen instantly. The other available method is to receive a mailed check, however this is much slower. The one advantage to receiving a check withdrawal is that the fees are minuscule when compared to Bitcoin withdrawals.
All things considered, Café Casino is a great casino but is still lacking in a few key departments. As far as the game selection is concerned, we would like to see a wider variety of table games and video poker titles, but as far as slots are concerned we really have no complaints. The same goes for the selection of bonuses offered to new players.
Café Casino’s biggest deficiency is with regard to the banking options. There are only a few different banking options available and we would really like to see the overall number of banking options expanded. With that being said, Café Casino’s catering to a US audience is something that makes adding a wider variety of banking options a bit more difficult than it may seem.
Finally, something we really did like is the fact that most of Café Casino’s games are able to be played on mobile devices. Whether you are playing on a smartphone or tablet, most slots and table games are at your disposal.
