TGIF! #ThatFeeling! – Casino Friday is on a mission to give you exactly that tingly feeling when you head into your deserved weekend break. So, get ready for a thrilling gaming journey on a sleek and modern gaming site filled with a sheer endless list of slots, table games and live dealer games from top providers. Generous bonuses, a patented levelling-up rewards system, a VIP loyalty program, friendly live chat support and fast payments will make every stay at Casino Friday an enjoyable one.
Launched on 8th October 2020, Casino Friday is owned and operated by 1UP Entertainment BV under licences from Estonia, Curacao and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Currently, they do not accept players from Australia, the USA, the United Kingdom and a whole host of other countries. A quick peek into the terms and conditions will inform you whether your country of residence is accepted.
The GMBLRS Detective
Having the honour to be part of beta testing, I became one of the first players to register an account at CasinoFriday. A real pleasure to feel once again welcome as my country of residence is often restricted from signing up at MGA or UKGC casinos. I immediately started my usual detective tour to find out what’s offer. After all, the team behind CasinoFriday founded Guts, Rizk and Thrills, so the anticipation was at a rather elevated level. These folks are not beginners, nor short of the financial means to start a new gaming destination.
The first thing you see are bright yet soothing colour tones that are pleasing to the eye and convey a tranquil feeling. After all, CasinoFriday aligns itself with the message of TGIF!, the day we are all looking forward to heading into the weekend. You can enter the casino with the same feeling and sit down in style anywhere you like to play on desktop PCs, tablets and smartphones. Virtually all devices and OS platforms are supported.
The founders are real industry veterans, having set up Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) about a decade ago. After selling all GiG casino brands to Betsson AB, they are on to new ventures with CasinoFriday marking their fresh debut, aiming to offer players mainly in unregulated and so-called grey markets a reliable and trustworthy place to enjoy casino games.
Getting ready for #ThatFeeling!
Speaking of registering, for once it was a really easy process to get it done. An intuitive menu is taking you step by step through each part, asking you to enter all relevant details including account currency – EUR, CAD, NOK – and finishing off with a code being sent to your mobile number (make sure to enter it correctly). Insert the code in the provided box to activate your account and you are ready for #ThatFeeling!
Entering the casino will present you with a world of gaming entertainment, stretching from classic slots to the latest blockbuster games and from simple video poker to thrilling live dealer tables. Over 50 developers have contributed their creations to an easy-to-navigate casino lobby. Listing them all would exceed the space on this page but rest assured that virtually everyone will find their favourites and also ample choices of new games to try for the first time. More providers are scheduled to be added in the months after their launch. A special mention must go to the Live Casino section which is stocked by numerous suppliers including Evolution Gaming, NetEnt Live, BetGamesTV and Pragmatic Play (formerly Extreme Live Gaming).
Click on the ‘Deposit‘ button whenever you feel ready to fund your CasinoFriday account. A simple menu will open where you can click on any active bonuses you wish to claim with the deposit (may vary based on your country of residence) as well as a drop-down menu with all payment methods available in your country of residence.
All usual means are listed including debit/credit cards, Bitcoin, e-wallets, prepaid vouchers, instant banking and mobile phone solutions. As for the reverse, CasinoFriday promises prompt withdrawal processing with no hassle once your account is fully verified, including on weekends. We will monitor how they fare in the first months after their launch and update this review in due time.
SpinBooster for #ThatFeeling!
So far, this review might sound to you just like those of most other reputable online casinos and that is indeed the case. However, here’s something that will make sure CasinoFriday stands out from the crowd by quite a margin. The name – SpinBooster. This will be a welcome change for all those who have grown tired of getting a few 10c spins on some generic slot as a reward. The patented level-up system at CasinoFriday takes into account your average bet size and preferred games to credit you with rewards that will reflect your activity. Basically, you get what you’ve earned. #ThatFeeling!
And there is more! CasinoFriday Loyalty is open to all players. The dedicated team will monitor accounts and invite eligible players to join the VIP program where they will be treated to extra rewards and goodies including weekly cashback, personalized service, exclusive promotions as well as better bonuses and spins. Make sure to have communications enabled in your profile to receive the invitation should the team select you.
Need help to get #ThatFeeling?
A team of multi-lingual customer support agents is on standby 24/7 to assist you with any queries or issues you might encounter during your stay at CasinoFriday. They are available via email and live chat. For added convenience, you can load the website in a range of languages including English, Finnish, German and Norwegian.
After operating for years online casinos in some of the most stringent jurisdictions, the founders of CasinoFriday made sure to introduce that Responsible Gambling culture to their new venture. Playing casino games should always be fun and entertaining to keep #ThatFeeling! Even on a rainy day when Lady Luck is not on your side. A whole host of limits and controls that go way over the requirements for the Curacao licence will allow you to keep your activity and spending in check. Naturally, you can also take a Time-Out period of up to 30 days or completely self-exclude from the casino.
The GMBLRS’ Detective Verdict
I rarely praise or speak overly positive about a new online casino that is about to open its doors as there is no reporting data available yet. However, given the pedigree of the founders, I have no doubts that CasinoFriday will ascend quickly to a player favourite, especially for those residing in unregulated countries who cannot register at most MGA, SGA or UKGC licenced casinos. With so many dubious sites operating in so-called ‘grey markets’, it will be a relief to play at a reputable brand that will pay winnings promptly and reliably. #ThatFeeling!
