This is my review of Kerching Casino.
Do you know what onomatopoeia means? It is when you are trying to translate what you hear with your ears into text or speech. For instance, we say that cats meow, dogs bark and the rain says drip-drop, but none of these is particularly close to what the actual sounds are. What is more, each different language uses different written forms for these sounds, based on their own pronunciations. For instance, in Finnish we say that cats say miau, dogs say hau and the rain says tip tip. Interesting, is it not?
The reason why I am bringing all this up is that Kerching Casino has decided to draw from onomatopoeia as well. This casino’s name is supposed to sound like the cash register after you have completed your transaction. Essentially then, kerching and ka-ching are the same thing.
Kerching Casino was established already in 2007 and remains operated by Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited. Unfortunately for many of us, however, this online casino is not available to all areas in the world…
Looks and feel of Kerching Casino
Much like is the case with several online casino operators today, Nektan brands usually have their own particular look to them. In essence, Kerching Casino looks somewhat stripped down and lite—not the kind of groundbreaking casino that you would perhaps want for your online casinos to be. Then again, at least Kerching’s visuals are based on reality as you should not find too many unattainable promises being given all around.
Personally, I like the simplicity of Kerching Casino’s look although I do have to say that the comic-style logo hardly means anything in the large scale of things. There is not a lot of personality to be found here—just your typical and lovable casino gaming!
Bonuses and rewards
Kerching Casino presents its newest customers with a total of three deposit bonuses meant to kick off your journey with a bang. At least at the time of writing, there was bonus money worth £500 and 150 extra spins up for grabs during your first three deposits. The bonus percentages, on the other hand, were 100%, 50% and another 50%.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Kerching Casino’s welcome offer is the fact that your bonuses here are entirely forfeitable. What this means is that you will begin your play with real money balance and continue to use bonus funds only if you lose your real money first. In other words, you do not have to wager your real money balance at all. This kind of awesomeness comes with a price, however, as your bonus funds are capped at 4x the initial bonus amount awarded. Thus, if you are playing with a £20 bonus, for instance, you will only be eligible for a £60 win, if you run out of your real money balance. This is tough and actually just recently happened to me, forcing me to turn over almost 150 of my winnings at the end of my wagering!
While it is not a perfect casino bonus, it is still better than many online casinos will give you!
For one reason or another, Nektan casinos always look a bit different once you are signed in. For instance, you will see the game provided-based search functionality only after you have opened an account. The game providers found here include the likes of NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, Big Time Gaming and ELK Studios.
Live casino games at Kerching are presented to you by Evolution Gaming and Extreme Live Gaming—two providers that are solely focused on delivering high-class live casino experiences!
Safety and security
Kerching Casino is licensed by both the UK Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gaming Authority. This means that those living in the UK and close will be in for some great and safe times. As I previously stated, however, not all nationalities will even have proper access to Kerching, including my countrymen in merry old Finland.
Banking options at Kerching Casino
PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Boku, Paysafecard, Skrill, Trustly, Zimpler… Kerching has virtually all the payment methods you need and will process withdrawals in about 2 to 3 days.
Kerching’s email support is open 24/7, but the casino also serves its players via email and live chat from 8 in the morning to midnight (GMT).
My experience at Kerching Casino
Kerching is a fine choice for online casino players who like forfeitable bonuses and are not afraid to deposit a lot. Those only wanting to deposit £20 or so, however, might find the 4x conversion rule a bit too restrictive.
All in all, Kerching does still get my recommendation!
