All British Casino Review
Tea and crumpets. Breakfast at Wimbledon. The Premier League. Princess Diana. All of these things conjure up very British images for me. So, when I was presented with All British Casino to be the subject of one of my reviews, my brain immediately went to everything I could think of that was from the UK. Being one of my favorites places to visit, I was thrilled to dig into a casino that was about all things British and clearly designed for the exclusive play of its residents.
Wait...is that right? Is this a casino only open to British players? Are the rewards totally UK-focused? Well, these questions are amongst the many that I will be trying to answer for this review. As always, you will get nothing but an honest review of this casino from me. I don't have time for a lot of crap from casino operators and am only too happy to call them out when necessary. So, settle in and have a read about what I found when checking out this site!
I love the variety of games available at this casino, and this is a direct result of the partnerships the owners have developed from a software perspective. With companies like Microgaming, Evolution, and Net Entertainment on board, you will find games of the highest quality in the casino lobby. For my money, there aren't too many other combinations of suppliers that can create a better array of games for my readers.
Payment processing is always one of the biggest struggles for both players and operators. At All British Casino, there are a fair number of options, and I like that the casino doesn't tack on fees for deposits or withdrawals (except wire transfers). Although I would have liked to have seen some additional methods like PayPal from this casino, I don't think any of my readers are going to have any issues getting their money to and from the site.
A major strike against this casino in my overall rating. The promotions page is full of expired offers dating back to October 2017. I don't understand how this can happen unless the owner is overwhelmed with the 12 casinos they operate. I sent the team a note to let them know and suggested that my review would change dramatically if they addressed this situation. Let's see if that has any impact on the bonuses as a whole. The VIP program looks like it has potential, but without all the details, it is difficult to give it a positive rating.
While I am very happy to see a comprehensive FAQ section, the casino gets a lower mark than normal because their service team is only available 18 hours a day. These days, there are too many other options for players that offer 24/7 customer service, and while I recognize that this site is focused on the UK market, that doesn't excuse it from abandoning other players who happen to play later on in the evenings. Fixing this would take no time and have a marked effect on the casino's rating.
I really like the way the site is laid out. This is especially true of the casino section, which groups the games into multiple tabs. The only thing I might add is a way to filter the games by the different software providers. While this is a minor change, many players like to find out which games are developed by the same vendor so they can either play or avoid those titles. Aside from that, I think the site is very well designed, and I was able to find the information I was looking for (if it was actually available) with ease.
Being a non-download casino (a necessity when a casino uses multiple software vendors), the games at All British Casino are compatible with the majority of mobile devices. This is great news for players who want to play their games away from a bulky PC, and for the casino, it means the potential of extending a player's session. I would like to see some mobile-only promotions and bonuses to help convert more players to playing via this method.
The Basics About All British Casino
With a name like All British Casino, it would be pretty easy to put together an image in your head about this company. However, you may be surprised by what you read next. This casino is open to far more players than those from the United Kingdom. In fact, there are only a handful of countries that are not allowed to access the real money games at this site: Estonia, France, Netherlands, Spain, and the United States. I suppose it isn't surprising when you see the Malta Gaming Authority logo on their homepage. I wonder how many potential players are deterred from creating an account or even visiting the site when they see the name?
Let's focus on what we do know about the casino. It is owned and operated by L&L Limited Casinos, who also operate 11 other casino brands. They are based in Malta, and as mentioned, they are licensed by both Malta and the UK. This should give you a true sense of security when it comes to your funds, as both regulators require that operators segregate player deposits in a separate bank account which must be audited.
All British Casino launched in late 2012, which means that they just crossed over the 5-year anniversary. This is an important watermark for me as a reviewer, as a site that is able to be open for that long without any major issues gets a high mark for reliability. With an ownership group that operates a dozen casino brands, I am comfortable that they have the experience to bring you a great casino offering.
Now that we have debunked the name and theory behind the casino, let's have a look at the games themselves. After all, now that we know most of you can play here, shouldn't you know if it is worth your time and money? I always like to get ready for a playing session by reading many of the player forums and looking for complaints about the games. This time, I wasn't really able to find anything of substance (just the standard people complaining because they didn't have a winning session), so it was time to create an account, make a deposit, and get to work.
Seeing that this company is using multiple top software providers, it is no surprise to find hundreds of games available in the lobby. I will say that the navigation for this casino is excellent, although it is hard to get back to the other website pages once you have clicked on the casino games tab. When in the lobby, the casino has done an excellent job sorting the games by category, as well as the most popular games on the site.
While All British Casino doesn't offer as many different software vendors in their casino lobby, the ones you will find are truly some of the highest quality you will find anywhere in the industry.
- Net Entertainment
- Amatic Industries
- Evolution Gaming
These companies are all leaders in the online casino space, and seeing them all being offered on one platform makes me very happy. Many of my favorite games are offered by these vendors, and as you will see in the games breakdown, I could find myself playing some of these titles for hours.
I thought I would start my playing session for this review with the slots area of All British Casino. Typically, I don't play slots as much as the table games, but when I saw both Net Entertainment and Microgaming involved, I knew one thing: there are some great progressive jackpot games. I was not disappointed when I got to the lobby, and in fact, the casino separates their jackpot games into their own tab! Here are the progressive slots I found in that tab (you are likely going to see names you recognize here).
- Arabian Nights
- Cosmic Fortune
- Divine Fortune
- Hall of Gods
- Major Millions
- Mega Fortune
- Mega Joker
- Mega Moolah
- Mega Moolah Isis
- Treasure Nile
I personally love the Mega Moolah games, as the jackpot is huge and hits a lot. I tried my best to become an instant millionaire during this playing session, but I can report back to you that I have left the multi-million progressive there for someone else to win.
There are two other tabs dedicated to slots at All British Casino, in which you will find well over 250 different games. These range from classic 3-reel slots all the way to intricate games featuring cross-branded content from the entertainment world. Here are a few of my favorites to get you started.
- Basketball Star
- Battlestar Galactica
- Book of Aztec
- Book of Fortune
- Dead or Alive
- Egyptian Heroes
- Elements: The Awakening
- Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel
- Fortune Girl
- Four by Four
- Guns N' Roses
- Hot Diamonds
- Jack Hammer Vs. Evil Dr. Wüten
- Jackpot 6000
- Lost Vegas
- Lotsaloot - 3 Reel
- Max Damage and the Alien Attack
- Planet of the Apes
- Rhyming Reels - Hearts & Tarts
- Robin Hood Shifting Riches
- Sweet Harvest
- Terminator 2
- The Phantom of the Opera
- Titans of the Sun Hyperion
- Titans of the Sun Theia
- Tomb Raider
- Wild Orient
- Wild Rockets
- ...and many more!
Now here is where I started to get really excited (and spent FAR too much time during my playing review). I have recently reviewed many casinos that, despite having multiple software vendors, still left the video poker section quite bare. I think this is one of the best games you can play in a casino - the speed of the game is great, and getting to be involved in the game by choosing which cards to hold makes it far more interactive than a slot machine. Add in the fact that the paytables in some instances get to almost even, and I think it is a game that all my readers should be trying.
Here are the video poker options in the All British Casino lobby.
- Aces and Eights
- Aces and Faces
- All Aces Poker
- All American
- All American Multi Hand
- Bonus Deuces Wild
- Bonus Poker
- Bonus Poker Deluxe
- Deuces and Joker
- Deuces Wild
- Deuces Wild Multi Hand
- Double Double Bonus
- Double Joker
- Fruit Poker
- Jacks or Better
- Jacks or Better Multi Hand
- Joker Card
- Joker Poker
- Joker Wild Multi Hand
- Multi-Win Triple
- Tens or Better
After an extended video poker session, featuring one royal flush (finally!), it was time for me to move on to the table games section. Table games were the first games I played in a casino, having watched movies like James Bond where it seemed super cool to be playing baccarat or blackjack. For me, table games are the most interesting, as they involve a lot more strategy than a slot machine.
I will say that I was surprised and a bit disappointed to find some of the Microgaming blackjack variants missing - maybe the casino is more focused on the traditional versions of the game. No matter, as I was able to find some of my favorite games such as Pai Gow Poker and Caribbean Stud among the dozens of game titles.
- 3 Card Poker
- Caribbean Stud Poker
- Casino Hold 'Em
- Pai Gow Poker
- Poker Pursuit
- Red Dog
- Sic Bo
- Spanish Blackjack
- Three Card Poker
- TXS Hold 'Em
- Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em
It is great to see a live dealer option available at All British Casino, although I must admit the details of these games are quite confusing. On the site, it says that the games are streamed from the Portofino Casino in Malta, and are only available from 10 am to 5 am CET. However, I also see games from Evolution Gaming, and given the fact that they have 7 studios to stream from, I know those games are available 24 hours a day.
Whatever the case, I highly recommend that you play live dealer games. The warmth of having a human dealing the cards makes the experience far closer to playing in a land-based casino, and the game speed is significantly slower, so you don't bleed money as quickly.
Here are all the live dealer tables available in the live casino tab of All British Casino.
- British Live Roulette
- Common Draw Black Jack
- Live Auto-Roulette
- Live Auto-Roulette VIP
- Live Baccarat A
- Live Baccarat B
- Live Black Jack
- Live Blackjack A
- Live Blackjack B
- Live Blackjack Platinum VIP
- Live Blackjack VIP A
- Live Caribbean Stud Poker
- Live Casino Hold'Em
- Live French Roulette Gold
- Live Immersive Roulette
- Live Roulette
- Live Roulette A
- Live VIP Roulette
- VIP Live Blackjack
- VIP Live Roulette
There are several banking options for players at All British Casino. Considering how much of the site's traffic comes from Europe, it is surprising not to see some more of the localized payment solutions. However, it would appear that the casino is doing just fine with these options. You will see that some of these methods are available for deposit only, and if you use those methods, then you will need to request a bank transfer for your withdrawals.
|Payment Method||Min/Max Deposit||Deposit Processing time||Withdrawal time|
|Visa||£10 - £1,000||Instant||1-2 business days|
|Mastercard||£10 - £1,000||Instant||Request via bank transfer|
|Bank transfer||£10 - no max||1-2 business days||1-2 business days|
|Skrill||£10 - £10,000||Instant||1 day|
|Neteller||£10 - £10,000||Instant||1 day|
|PaySafe Card||£10 - £250||Instant||Request via bank transfer|
|Boku||£10 - £30||Instant||Request via bank transfer|
There are no fees applied to the player for any of the deposit or withdrawal methods aside from bank transfers.
With so many great games, you may not even care what kind of promotions the site offers. Not me - the bonuses are a major factor in calculating my profitability with a casino, so it is important to search thoroughly for the best value at this casino or any other.
Here is where I found the most damning issue with the All British Casino management team - the promotions page is horribly outdated. Not only is the welcome bonus not listed there, but the offers I found included an Advent Calendar promo for December 2017 and a one-day offer dating all the way back to October. This is unacceptable as far as I am concerned. Not only should the marketing department be continuing to create interesting promotions for players, but they also need to at the very least archive the expired offers. I am very hopeful that this is just a technical oversight, but seeing that my review is taking place well into 2018, I have my doubts.
There is a welcome bonus displayed on the homepage of the site, which is a 100% match to $100 with an additional 100 free spins. However, clicking on this banner took me to the registration page, and following my registration, it still didn't lead to any more details about the offer.
Just when I thought all hope was lost for this marketing team, I did find a link to the bonus page of the site, which gave me a few more details on this promotion. First of all, you have 30 days to convert the bonus amount from the day you make the claim. The bonus also comes with a 35x wagering requirement, which is a bit high compared to some other sites. However, as the maximum bonus is smaller than most, there is still a good chance you will be able to convert the full amount. I recommend that my readers take advantage of this welcome bonus to its maximum, as it appears there isn't much else in the way of offers at this time.
All British Casino seems to be following a recent trend I have noticed when it comes to their VIP program. There is a full page dedicated to the program, and it lists benefits that include the following.
- Exclusive dedicated Elite VIP manager available 24/7
- Increased deposit limits for more convenient play
- Increased maximum bet limits
- Fast track cash out and priority verification
- Reduced wagering requirements
- Exclusive cashback deals
- Exclusive Elite VIP only offers
- Exclusive Elite VIP events
However, there is not a true overview of the different levels of the program, or how a player qualifies. Even worse, the site goes on to try to explain how players can become a VIP, but those terms are so vague that it just seems very subjective. I am starting to get frustrated that sites hide this information from players - they should just make this part of the promotional plan and open up about the level of rewards a player can receive in return for their loyalty.
These days, many players are looking to access casino games from their mobile devices. To that end, sites like All British Casino are using non-download games for their offering. This allows players to create accounts and play their favorite games from any browser, either from a PC or a mobile device.
All British Casino's software providers have modified the majority of their games for mobile compatibility, although you may find a few games missing from the mobile version of the site.
When I was searching for answers to the lack of promotions, I stumbled across the frequently asked questions section of the site. This is an excellent resource for players who have general questions about their account, payments, bonuses, and site security. This is the first stop all players should make if they are looking for an answer to their query.
Should you need more information than is available in the FAQ section, then you can reach them by email, live chat, or telephone. Be warned: the casino only offers support between the hours of 7 am and 1 am GMT. Seriously? What about the players who play late at night in the UK or Europe (or those playing in prime-time Canadian hours)? This is garbage - I expect every online casino should have an agent available whenever their casino is open.
Well, I would have to say that overall I am split down the middle when it comes to All British Casino. To start, I am happy that the site is licensed by both Malta and the UK, and in fact is open to many more countries than the name would suggest. The game selection is excellent, and they can be played either on a PC or a mobile device without any issue.
However, for a casino that has the background from a management perspective that this one does, I would have hoped to have seen a slightly better offering when it came to bonuses, VIP programs, and customer service.
As you have already likely determined from my ratings earlier, this casino is missing some pieces that if addressed would end up in a much higher ranking from me. However, if you are mostly concerned about the quality of games, then I can say you will enjoy your experience at All British Casino. If you are looking for more perks, then please read some of my other reviews for some other options.
