Casino Cruise is an online casino riding the waves of change in the online
gaming industry since 2014. This cruise-inspired site is owned and operated by
EveryMatrix Software Ltd, forming part of OddsMatrix Limited Casinos. When first
hearing about this brand, we couldn’t wait to see what was on deck.
Upon arrival, Casino Cruise appeared to be fresh with a unique design. One
thing that caught the eye immediately was the huge list of casino games. To
admit, we immediately wanted to jump on board this ship to see what else was
cooking. As most would know, Net Entertainment and Microgaming are some of the
leaders of the pack, and this is who Casino Cruise opted to go with. They also
decided to add a handful of other well-known software suppliers to the mix a
such as NYX Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Play n Go, Lucky Streak and Quickspin. We
believe Casino Cruise can make a massive splash in the market with its variety
of currencies, games options, solid bonuses, fast customer service and strong
security. To get this far, they should look at a few minor improvements here and
The online casino may be a newcomer, but they are already giving the
competition a good run for their money. This can easily be backed up based on
the site’s high-end graphics and an insane amount of games. We especially
appreciate the Cruise Ship theme filled with cool images of ship wheels, ocean
liners and executive staff all decked out in crisp uniforms. Nice touch.
Although everything at Casino Cruise looks quite promising, we are here to
find out what goes on below the decks. Is this online casino likely to swim
sink in your estimations?
Below you will find our complete review of Casino Cruise. As with all our
online casino reviews, our main mission is to provide you with an accurate,
honest and unbiased opinion. Like most things in life, we can only get the true
value of something if we weigh out all the pros and cons. This is exactly how we
reviewed Casino Cruise.
First, we check out the game variety to see if both veteran and new players
will come back for more. This is followed up by the range of payment methods
available for deposit and withdrawal purposes. Making our way to the welcome
package and special promotions is next on our list. We conclude by taking an
in-depth view at customer support services, and scroll through each page to give
an honest rating on the user experience.
Take a look at our feedback on this site to provide you with a clearer
picture of it all. You can be sure that our thoughts and opinions from our
reviews are completely truthful and compiled with your best interest at heart.
Even if we have to mention the bads, you can be sure we’ll add it!
Casino Cruise was certainly one of the more positive reviews we’ve ever done.
Why? Everything checks the list for safety and security. We simply couldn’t
ignore the massive selection of games, and checked to see if all is safe with a
quick look at its eCogra certification. This is probably the most crucial factor
for any casino since the games are the main attraction at any gambling site. All
personal and banking information is also covered by SSL encryption.
Let’s take a look at some more of the good stuff. Casino Cruise steered their
site into a popular port with value for money promotions, good customer support
and a solid list of gaming options. The greatest standout factor by far is the
design of the site. This really differentiates Casino Cruise from others in a
The only leaks found in the hull were minor: The two-week period to complete
wagering requirements on the welcome bonus, withdrawal limits, customer support
timeframes and few banking options. Most other sites will give you roughly 30
days to meet playthrough, so this really put a damper on our spirits.
To sum it up, we can say that Casino Cruise is one of the better options out
there. A lot of effort has been put into the design and games selection. So for
those looking to play lots of different slots or table games, the casino does
truly cater to you.
This is probably the third time mentioning this, but we were quite impressed
by the vast selection of casino games available. It also doesn’t hurt to mention
that these games come from multiple software providers. This means you have
access to animal, ocean, adventure, holiday and sports inspired games, among
other great themes. The interface featuring all these games is easily searchable
and well organized by category.
Another unique touch is the addition of several
live casino games, allowing you to interact with a real dealer through live
chat. We must admit, when comparing to other sites, Casino Cruise’s 72 live
games has much more variety. The casino also made sure to appeal to poker fans,
and adding these deserves a pat on the back ( most online casinos wouldn’t even
bother). The reason why Casino Cruise hasn’t scored a full 5/5 is due to the
lack of scratch card games visible. We simply couldn’t find any.
The site has a few banking options. While we expected to see a huge variety
of methods, this was not the case. What was found were some eWallets, like
Skrill and Neteller, and credit cards, like MasterCard and Visa. In all honesty,
these are pretty much the standard offerings these days. The truth is, we had to
do a bit of searching to find them listed. You can see what we mean by this by
looking under the Support tab (the payments section hidden beneath). On the
other hand, the site offers a handy FAQ informing you on how long you can expect
to wait for your winnings.
Another thing worth mentioning is that the withdrawal
limits at are not the best in the industry. The most you can withdraw per week
is $5,500 and $22,000 per month. If you happen to hit a massive win worth
$100,000, the casino will release your winnings in installments. Casino Cruise
could definitely do with a much larger payments list and increasing some limits.
They could also, perhaps, look at a tab that directly links us to this section.
The welcome offer bonuses are above par with a mix of additional free spins
on select slot games. Other rewards come in the form of reload bonuses, holiday
trips and free play Fridays. It seems that there is always something cooking in
their promotions section.
As mentioned above though, the time to meet
playthrough on these bonuses is only limited to two weeks (or less). These will
need to be turned around at least 40x before any cash outs happen. They do
slightly deviate from competition with this wagering requirement, but not by
much. We’ve seen casinos offer as little as 25x, but this is more than rare.
For these reasons, they are rated with 4/5 for bonuses, mainly due to variety
Casino Cruise doesn’t let down when attending to player queries, and that’s a
good thing. A selection of customer support options is made available on the
site, along with a thorough FAQ section. Looking through this suggests that the
casino covers a boat-load of questions players may seek an answer to. They even
explain the technical stuff, like minimum system requirements for mobile and PC.
We appreciate that Casino Cruise lists support via call, email and live chat.
Regardless if they check all the boxes, we were let down that support is only
available during certain hours. This makes us deduct one point for what could’ve
been a full 5/5.
Casino Cruise managed to avoid the standard flat design that plagues several
online casinos. Instead, they developed a unique ocean-cruise theme. Backgrounds
and surfaces appear textured, while the palette of colors spread across the game
options making site is vibrant and welcoming. The cruise theme may appear a
little over the top for some players, but we found the overall layout to be
fresh, fun and exciting.
The top menu allows for easy navigation between the promotional offers and
games, while the giant main window highlights the best promotions of the day.
There are additional links and promotions located in a submenu below this, along
with large game menus highlighting popular offerings. Since we’re always up for
a chat with support, we liked that the live chat option was readily available on
each page. These are great perks for usability, but we didn’t forget that
banking options weren’t that easy to find.
Casino Cruise offers a list of over 1200 games of which 600 (more or less)
are slots. We weren’t expecting this many, but the casino made sure to go big or
go home in this case. The theme of every slot title is unique, the sounds and
visuals are realistic and the gameplay functionality appears to be smooth. Those
looking for diversity will find a variety of payline structures and loads of
bonus features here.
The slot collection consists of classic 3 reel slots, 5 reel slots and
progressive jackpot games. The casino doesn’t really place much emphasis on
jackpots, with only a few titles to rave about. Slot variations are also what
appears to be randomly placed on the homepage at first glance. We didn’t
immediately notice this, but the games are categorized in a grey and white sub
menu just below the search bar. If you know the name of the slot you’re opting
to play, the search function will come in handy. Otherwise, if you happen to
miss the sub menu, scrolling through an exhausted list of games can be daunting.
Like other casinos, Casino Cruise allows you to play slot games for fun
before forking out any cash. Selecting fun mode will open a new page along with
several options situated on the right-hand side of the game. We like the
customizing aspect here to enter full-screen mode, plus the live chat feature
and star icon (allows you to bookmark a game as one of your favorites).
You will find the latest winners posted above the search bar containing the
win amount and the game played. This was quite a nice addition for us to see
which games have recently paid out.
For your benefit, we’ve included the entire list of slot games offered at
Casino Cruise. Each of these are separated by classic 3 reel slot machines,
modern 5 reel video slots and progressive jackpot games. Unfortunately, none of
the games are listed alphabetically on the site, but you will find them
organized from A-Z for your convenience below:

This online casino seems to stock the full range of slot games, from both Net
Entertainment and Microgaming, with loads of other software provider games. For
table games though, we weren’t too surprised to find no Craps or Baccarat games
(The games menu is a dead giveaway). Besides this, the selection of blackjack
and roulette is decent enough.
Like slots, table games can also be enjoyed for fun. What we enjoyed here is
that you can change the layouts of certain games. Mess around with the settings
a little and you’ll notice the “last played” option at the bottom of the screen.
This naturally took us to a slot game previously explored in free mode. We must
add that the collection of table games is far more extensive than found
elsewhere. It’s perhaps what the casino had in mind to hook table game players?
All blackjack and roulette games are neatly categorized under the table game
section, along with other variations. These are not listed alphabetically as we
would have hoped for, and which would have made searching so much easier. For
those who know the title of the game, the search bar really helps out. If you’re
not sure of the game name though, it can be a bit of a hassle to scroll through
dozens of thumbnails. Let’s look at the A-Z list to save you some time by

Unlike most other sites, Casino Cruise opted to host a range of specialty
games, listed as ‘Other Games’. You’ll also come across a section for scratch
card games only. When looking for a few listings, there were none featured.
Frankly, this was quite a disadvantage in our eyes. For clarity’s sake, and to
see what other games Casino Cruise has, check out this list below.
Hall of Fame
Hole in One
The Lost Pyramid
Triple Chance Hilo
Triple Wins Star Ticket
Live Dealer Games
It seems like Casino Cruise is competing with other live casinos by offering
a live platform as well. It’s good to know that the live casino is available 24
hours a day and 7 days a week, since all live games are broadcasted in
real-time. The hostesses appear to come from a pool of NetEnt and Evolution
Gaming talent, and are rather professional in approach. In terms of diversity,
we couldn’t fault Casino Cruise here. There are over 70 different versions
available in the Live Games section. To give you an idea of what to expect,
check out this list below.
Blackjack Diamond VIP
Blackjack Fortune VIP
Blackjack Grand VIP
Blackjack Multiplayer Common Draw II

Casino Cruise didn’t quite blow our minds with a limited amount of banking
options. Based on our views on the game selection, we were hoping to find a much
larger list of payment and withdrawal methods. Although this may be an initial
snag, the casino does, however, cater well with 26 different foreign currency
selections. Just an FYI, we suspect that banking options will depend on the
country you reside in. So in this case, be sure to check out what the casino
lists for payments and withdrawals to get a better idea. Moving on to the
payment processing times, we give Casino Cruise a thumbs-up for adding this info
on their site. This, and answers to additional fees, are what we were searching
for (we happened to stumble on it within the FAQ section). Great job.
If we have to nitpick, the only downfall is the limits placed on weekly and
monthly withdrawals. Other than that, all’s well with the processing times at
above average speed at 24-48 hours. Card payments were noted to take up to 24
hours, but this is dependent on whether if your casino account is verified.
To clarify, Casino Cruise requires you to send a few documents for
verification. This will include a copy of your ID, passport or Driver’s license
and a copy of your most recent utility bill (not older than 3 months).
When using a credit or debit card to make deposits, they will also ask for front
and back copies of your card before dishing out withdrawals. Let’s explore the
type of deposit and withdrawal options below (or check to see if it differs
based on your country).
When it comes to the welcome package and promotions, Casino Cruise is not the
shy type. For first timers, the $1,000 welcome package spread across the first 4
deposits plus 200 free spins, is certainly a treat. These spins are dished out
over 10 days, and only kicks in after you made your first deposit.
Moving on, we browsed through the T&C’s of the welcome offer, and found that
the bonus requires a 40x turnaround to meet playthrough. As an upper limit for
the industry standard (30-40x), it remains within reasonable bounds. Looking at
the welcome package in more detail, it is a 100% match up to $200 on the 1st
deposit, a 50% up to $200 on the 2nd and a 25% match up to $300 on the 3rd third
and 4th deposits. The only leak in their welcome package is that bonuses need to
be cleared in 2 weeks or less. This makes it quite a task to achieve as most
other casino sites give you a grace period of 30 days to do so.
When venturing through other promotions, we were pleased to see how well they
catered to loyal players with a list of ongoing promotions (both weekly and
You can claim a 50% reload bonus up to $100 on Mondays, along with 20
extra free spins.
A further 25% match bonus up to $100 kicks in every Tuesday.
If you manage to make two deposits during the week, you will also receive a
small gift (bonus) from the casino every weekend. Other cool promotions we
stumbled upon include an exclusive ‘Win a Cruise to the Mediterranean’
promotion. On the flip side of the coin, the Loyalty Club is rather standard.
Here, rewards come in the form of 1 loyalty point for every $10 wagered at the
On to some positives. It’s good to see the Captain’s Club program in place
aimed at VIPs. This club offers dedicated customer support, exclusive weekend
promotions, anniversary gifts, birthday bonuses and a few other gigs. While this
is becoming a norm at top online casinos, we still appreciate that Casino Cruise
makes a good effort to look after the big guys.
It’s clear that Casino Cruise covers all its bases when it comes to customer
service options. We got in touch with the staff in a matter of minutes through
email, telephone and live chat. Before we headed down this road though, a little
read through the extensive FAQ section had us finding answers to most of our
The support service isn’t available around the clock as of yet,
though we’d like to see Casino Cruise exercise more flexibility in this regard.
Interestingly enough, when chatting with one of the casino agents, it’s said
that they are looking into this in the near future. As to when this will happen,
no one cannot confirm for sure. Once they decide to up their game with a 24/7
customer service operation, you can be sure to see our ratings change. Besides
the time frames for support, the reps come across as well trained to handle any
sort of query you can throw at them.
A plus in our books is the fast response
times for all methods of communications listed above and below. Not to forget,
something that also caught our attention was the multiple language selections.
English, Swedish, Dutch, Finnish and Norwegian players can easily browse through
the casino site in their native language.
As you can un-doubtedly tell from our words, we were impressed with this
online casino as a whole. Casino Cruise is a well-designed online casino with a
vast collection of games and a wide range of currencies to choose from.
Though the payment methods and customer support timeframes may be limited, the
casino seems to be making an effort to up its game. The bonuses are generous,
and the mix of ongoing promotions may just hook you as a loyal player.
The only drawbacks we could find were few, to be honest. To refresh, these
were the withdrawal limits, the 14-day grace period on wagering requirements on
bonuses, the support time frames, limited banking options and the fact that not
all the games were listed on their site. Despite these shortcomings, the user
interface is unique, and we could navigate our way around without the help of
support. If we were to add anything else to the site, it would be more language
options, as Casino Cruise only offers 5 languages as of right now.
