This is my review of Bons Casino.
Do you ever reminisce about the good old days? If you are as old as me, born in 1987, you probably do. Even though I did not really have a lot of time to listen to 80s music as a baby and a toddler, I do think a bulk of the best songs in the world is from that era. Furthermore, I love old (as well as new) video games that I used to play when I was a kid… I even have tons of retro consoles in my man cave! Because of these things, I was very receptive to Bons Casino when I first saw it.
While the name Bons seems to come from this casino’s tendency to hand out plenty of bonuses, it is the retro vibes of this online casino that really got me. I will discuss this in length later on in this review! Now, though, I have to tell you that this 2020 casino was created by a company called NestlingCorn Limited, which has its offices in Cyprus.
Let us get into it now, shall we?
Looks and feel of Bonus Casino
Those who love video games will also love Bons Casino’s retro style and looks. Most of the fonts on this site look like the ones seen in the arcade games of the late 80s and early 90s. The characters on the site, on the other hand, remind me of Minecraft. In fact, I think that Bons Casino might actually be somewhat close to a copyright infringement with their blocky figures and treasure chests, but perhaps the likeness is still more retro than it is Minecraft…
Bons Casino gives you all the tools that you need to have a good online gambling experience. This includes provider-based search functions, an easily accessible live help system, and being able to sign in via social networks!
Bonuses and rewards
Just looking at the homepage carousel at Bons Casino, you can immediately tell that this casino loves casino bonuses. You can see advertisements for monthly 5% sports cashback, live dealer loyalty prizes, loyalty program goodies, daily tournaments, and, of course, the welcome offer for new members.
Weirdly enough, Bons Casino seems majorly secretive about the details of its welcome offer. While you will know straight away that there is a 200% bonus + 200 free spins and an additional free bet on roulette available, you will not know much else. I tried digging pretty much everywhere but could not find the details. Even the terms and conditions section is filled with drivel… Ultimately, I ended up asking customer support to provide me with this information, and they said that you have to set up an account in order to see this. I would not budge, however, and said I wanted to know before registering an account. This resulted in an extremely long discussion where the support tried to get rid of me and linked me to places where the information could not even be found… Then, finally, after maybe 40 minutes, they sent me a screen capture of the rules.
Weirdly enough, it turns out that the Bons bonus percentage will drop (from 200% to 100%) and the wagering requirements will go up when you deposit more (from 25 to 30). In addition to this, your maximum withdrawal will only be 10 times the bonus, which might be the reason why the terms are not readily available…
After having had to hit my head on the wall with the customer agent, I took a look at the Bons Casino games selection. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised here with all the games on offer. In total, there were a little under 50 game providers present with some of their best games in tow. Notable ones included NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Quickspin, ELK Studios, Red Tiger, Northern Lights, Hacksaw Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Push Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, and more. There was not a lot of premium game studios missing, which is obviously a great thing.
For those wanting to play games other than slots, Bons Casino has a nice selection of both sports betting markets and live casino games. Live dealer tables here include ones from Evolution Gaming the undeniable top live studio in the world today.
Safety and security
Bons Casino is operating under the Curacao license. Normally, when I see this license, I have my doubts as to whether the casino will truly be a trustworthy one. Everyone in the industry knows that while this license is pretty easy to get, it is also quite difficult to lose, meaning that online casinos can do a bunch of bad things before their license is finally revoked. Thus, I am not entirely confident about Bons Casino’s honesty and was not able to find enough information online to formulate an opinion on the matter.
Banking options at Bons Casino
According to the support agent, withdrawals are processed within 48 hours.
I already went into detail about my horrible customer support experience above when talking about Bons Casino’s casino bonuses. I really do not get why some online casinos refuse to invest in good support where the agent has a bunch of documents next to them and will easily know where to find the information needed. Instead, with the agent at Bons, I felt like they were trying to make me look for the information myself.
Support at Bons is open 24/7.
My experience at Bons Casino
To tell you the truth, I may have been a little harsh with Bons here due to my terrible customer support experience. Then again, I would really suggest global online casinos to be more forthcoming about their casino bonuses. After all, there are hundreds (or maybe even thousands) of online casinos available and brands cannot expect customers to join each and every single one of them to find out what they are getting into. It is just not plausible.
For those still considering signing up at Bons, I am not saying that you cannot have a good experience. You just have to be careful.
