The Malta-based PlayOJO Casino has 1,000+ casino games and is licensed by the UK Gambling Comission. It is possible to get up to 50 Free Spins as a welcome gift.
Launched in 2017, PlayOJO is a comparatively new casino, but it is operated by the experienced casino operator SkillOnNet. During its first year of operation, it was given the Rising Star Award by EGR, Malta’s iGaming Awards declared it Casino of the Year, and the prestigious Casinomeister called it Best New Casino.
One of the things that set PlayOJO apart from many other online casinos is their very transparent approach to wager requirements and withdrawal regulations. You don’t have to wade through eight pages of very fine print to understand how to get your money out of your account here.
Instead of offering a traditional first deposit bonus, PlayOJO hands out 1 free spin per £1 deposited when you make your first deposit, up to a maximum of 50 free spins. So, if you deposit £50, you get 50 free spins! Now, the really interesting thing: there is no wagering requirement attached to the money you win on these free spins.
A negative aspect of PlayOJO is the limited acccess to the the customer support. There is no phone support, and the live chat support is closed between midnight and six in the morning (UK time). This is of course a drawback for all the many players who like to play casino games at night and might need to get in touch with the support team.
The game selection at PlayOJO Casino is truly huge, and includes – among other things – circa 700 slots, about 50 blackjack tables and 30+ versions of roulette.
When we visisted PlayOJO, we could’nt find any scratch cards. This was a bit disappointing considering how large the game selection is. Hopefully, this is something that PlayOJO will have fixed already when you read this review.
Examples of game developers represented at PlayOJO:
- Play ‘n GO
- Evolutiong Gaming (live casino)
- Extreme (live casino)
Recently created games are available in HTML5, but some of the older games only work with a Flash Player.
The slot games come from several different game developers, including the giants Microgaming and NetEnt. This means that you can play everything from Gonzo’s Quest to Mega Moolah here.
Fortunately, there is a great sorting function available, which makes it easier to find the type of game you’re looking for in this huge collection of games. You can use various filters in your searches, including developer, theme and volatility, or search for games with specific features, e.g. free spins mode or re-spins.
On a tight budget? There are slots here were you can wager as little as £0.01 per round.
Examples of available table games:
- Punto Banco
- European Blackjack Turbo
- French Roulette Pro
- American Roulette Pro
High-stakes blackjack is available up to £10,000 and high-stakes roulette up to £5,000.
The video poker sections contains 15+ games. Examples of popular ones are Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Aces & Faces, and Joker Poker.
There is a live casino with real BJ tables, real roulette wheels, and so on. Perfect for players who don’t like it when games are controlled by a Random Number Generator.
Most of the games in the PlayOJO live casino have a human dealer, but there is also slingshot roulette where a machine shoots out the ball.
Some of the live roulette games from the Extreme live studio use animated backgrounds, which is a bit different from the norm. You can for instance elect to play at a roulette table that looks as if it is in a glass cage inside an aqauarium.
PlayOJO casino apps are available for both Android and iOS. It is also possible to visit the web casino in the web browser of your smartphone or tablet.
Promotions & Loyalty Rewards
PlayOJO has received a lot of praise for their promotions and loyalty rewards. The OJOplus system offers a small percentage of the player’s wager back on every game, and this money can be collected and withdrawn.
The loyalty scheme consists of three levels. As soon as you have made your first deposit, you will start earning points in the loyalty scheme when you play in the casino. Going up a level can yield you spins at the OJO Wheel. The second tier is OJO Club, followed by the third-tier A-listers Club.
Regretably there is no phone support.
Live chat support: Yes, it is open from 6 in the morning to midnight, UK time.
