Rise and shine, or so the saying goes. You can sure do that at Rise Casino on hundreds of slots from top providers. Play Starburst from NetEnt or Buffalo Rising Megaways from Blueprint Gaming or any of the other exciting titles. The fairly new gaming hangout welcomes you with a simple bonus on sign-up that you can claim for a deposit of just £10.
Launched in 2018, Rise Casino is a brand owned by Tau Marketing Services Limited and operated for British patrons by 888 UK Ltd under a licence from the UK Gambling Commission. For the rest of the world, the operator is Virtual Global Digital Services Limited, who hold a licence from the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. Both are stringent gaming licenses, virtually ensuring safe and fair games while adhering to strict regulations for Responsible Gambling (RG) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML).
The GMBLRS Detective
To be honest, I hadn’t heard of Rise Casino prior to being given the task to write the review. Currently, dozens of new hangouts are launched every month and while I am keeping track of most of them, this one has slipped through the net. Maybe because there is nothing outstanding or something else that didn’t attract me to take a look any earlier. Well, time to do just that now and see whats on offer.
Loading the site brings up a pretty basic design that looks rather dated without any clear menu, sorting option or even the complete games list for that matter. According to them, they list over 300 slots from a handful of provider, which is an extremely low number for today’s spoiled gaming crowd. Anything less than 1,000 games is considered mediocre, plus they do not have a Live Casino section.
Well, let’s sign up first and something more detailed might be presented to those going through the usual registration process. Our UK friends will have to complete the age and identity verification (KYC) before they are allowed to deposit and play. The site layout, however, did not change after we logged into our newly created account, which is rather disappointing. One can only hope that the tech team at Rise Casino will upgrade the site soon.
Looking at the welcome package, you can expect a somewhat lukewarm greeting as there is only one offer for bonus spins for a small deposit (subject to change). Please make sure to read the bonus terms to avoid any disappointment. No other promos were to be found anywhere on the site, hence, we assume the casino does not offer regular bonuses or any other incentives for a depositing player. We could be wrong but so far there was nothing to be found.
Should you feel ready to deposit, then pick from a decent range of methods such as credit/debit cards, PayPal, Paysafe Card, Pay-By-Phone, Neteller, Entropay and standard bank transfer and follow the instructions to fund your account. Any withdrawals will have to go back to the depositing method or a verified bank account. Upon researching the cashout process, we found out that they impose a 48-hour pending period on all submitted withdrawals, which is quite a downer. There is no reason for a modern casino to keep winnings ransom for two days before they think of starting the payment process. None of these casinos can score more than 3 points here at GMBLRS and Rise Casino is joining that group.
Customer support is not easy to contact. First, there is no Live Chat or email. UK players can at least make use of a freephone number while everyone else will have to fill out an online message form. Responses can take up to 72 hours, which is way too long. The page is available in English language only.
Rise Casino is adhering though to the Responsible Gambling regulations set out by the UKGC and offers appropriate limits and controls that will keep your spending at the casino in check. You can make use of daily, weekly and monthly deposit, loss, session length or wager limits as well as activating a break of executing a self-exclusion. Rise Casino is part of GAMSTOP.
Not sure how to rate this casino or even take it as a serious contender in this highly competitive market. While the games they offer come from some of the best providers, the total number of slots is rather mediocre compared to other sites. Add to that the rudimentary site design, no apparent promotions, loyalty program or VIP club, no Live Chat, minimum 48-hours pending periods and I honestly cannot see a good reason to recommend Rise Casino unless you can accept the shortcomings.
