Is it dark, mysterious and most of all loud? The answer is yes to all of those when we are talking about Metal Casino, a gaming destination created by heavy metal fans turned iGaming veterans. Combining the two worlds on a mobile-friendly site, they are uniting casino fans with some of the best and loudest slots, exclusive live dealer games, sports betting, fast payments and a rocking customer service department. And that’s not all, in an online casino-first they will invite lucky players to live concerts with up-close-and-personal moments with some of the heaviest names in rock music.
Launched in 2017, Metal Casino is owned by VRTCL Gaming Limited, Malta and operated by MT SecureTrade Limited on the iGamingCloud platform under licenses from the MGA Malta, the Swedish Spelinspektionen and the UK Gambling Commission. The trio is the most stringent licenses an online casino can acquire, ensuring fair games and strict adherence to Responsible Gambling regulations.
Update 23rd October 2020: MetalCasino has changed platforms and is now operated by Skill on Net Ltd under licences from the MGA Malta, the UK Gambling Commission and the Swedish Spelinspektionen.
The GMBLRS Detective
It needs something special to have the mighty Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne himself becoming an ambassador for an online casino. And that seems to be indeed the case with Metal Casino as the entire site is literally screaming heavy metal music. Being a hard rock fan myself, writing the review presented the best opportunity to dive into the dark and mysterious world of Metal Casino for some proper headbanging.
Being operated on a major iGaming platform comes with significant benefits. One is the extensive game choice with slots, table games and live dealer tables that includes virtually all “must-haves”, “nice-to-haves” and “would-like-to-haves” of the iGaming industry. Not to forget the countless markets offered in their sportsbook. The portfolio is though tailored to each region or country and thus the number of providers and games will vary greatly based on where you live.
Put the speakers on max and sign up at Metal Casino via their Plug-In button. A form will open where you can enter your details in multiple steps. Once submitted, you will receive an SMS or email to activate your account. UK players will have to complete the verification process before they can deposit and play while for all others, we strongly recommend to do it at their earliest convenience as it will avoid potential delays when it comes to withdrawals.
The banking lobby lists an extensive range of payment methods that you can use to fund your account. Again, the choice varies depending on your country of residence. Usually, you will have credit (not for UK players) or debit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards, instant banking and mobile phone options at your disposal. Pick one to make your first deposit and you will benefit from a generous welcome package based on, well you get the drift, country of residence. Please note that bonus terms apply to all offers, make sure to read the terms carefully before accepting one. As for the reverse course, Metal Casino is considered a fast-paying casino, processing withdrawals within a few hours and that 24/7/365.
All players are enrolled into the loyalty program, which takes them on a World Tour where they complete gigs by playing on the casino games. Once they level up, they will advance to the next Tour Stop and will earn a reward in form of MetCoins, the casino’s internal currency, or a spin on The Golden Wheel, which comes in three levels based on the activity and loyalty. At every Tour Stop, players will be presented with a choice of four guitar picks from which they can choose one to reveal their prize.
The options for The Golden Wheel are Super, Mega and Epic, depending on your loyalty level and containing increasingly better prizes for Bonus Spins, MetCoins and one Jackpot valued at €200, €1,000 and €2,000 respectively. MetCoins can be used in the “Merch Shop” to purchase Bonus Spins at various bet levels on a range of games as well as a variety of merchandise and concert tickets.
Customer support is available 24/7 via two channels – email and live chat – however, there is no phone support. At press time, the site could be loaded in multiple languages, including English, Finnish and Swedish.
While headbanging to rock music and your favourite games is usually fun, we strongly recommend using the Responsible Gambling tools Metal Casino is offering all players in their account sections. Use them to set limits that will control your spending and/or activity at the casino or alternatively you can activate a cool-off period or self-exclusion. For UK players, Metal Casino is participating in the GAMSTOP program.
The GMBLRS’ Detective Verdict
Metal Casino is a superb gaming hangout and that not only for fans of heavy metal and rock music. It has all ingredients for an exhilarating casino experience with ample games, promotions and rewards. Highly recommended.
