As advertised, Pink Casino is very very pink. They openly brand themselves as a "ladies" site, but they have a solid range of the usual casino games that will appeal to anyone who can handle the site's hues. The site is actually a part of the LeoVegas family, so it's basically a scaled-down and more frilly version of that site.
The site also has more of a focus on bingo than the usual online casino. Interested in learning more? We'll cover everything Pink Casino has to offer in today's review.
Available Games and Software
Pink Casino has about 300 games, which puts it on the smaller side of the UK online casino market. The variety is quite good, however, with 28 software developers large and small tapped to provide gaming options. Just about all of the biggest names are present - Netent, IGT, Microgaming and so on. But there are also some titles from smaller developers like Bede and Eyecon, games that you don't see all that commonly at other online casinos.
As per usual, the slots make up the vast majority of the gaming roster here. There are about 250 in total, with 32 progressive jackpot options. It's a good mix of big-name licensed titles (Deal or No Deal, The Goonies, Battleship, Monopoly and so on) with some more niche games for those looking for something new and interesting. The progressives mostly have modest jackpots, but there are some fun titles in the mix like Andy Capp and Count Duckula.
There are 18 live dealer tables, all provided by Evolution Gaming. There are seven types of roulette and five baccarat tables. Other game options include blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em, Caribbean Stud, Three Card Poker, Dream Catcher and Casino Hold 'Em.
Surprisingly, there are fewer standard table games than there are live streaming games. At this time there are only six available - three types of blackjack and three types of roulette. In fact, there are more scratchers (10) than there are table games!
Finally, there is the substantial bingo section. Pink Casino runs a 24/7 90 ball game, and also has a regular schedule of "speed bingo" and 75 ball games.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Pink Casino is a bit unusual in that you'll need to have £10 in your account to be able to play real money games. Deposits can be made by Visa, MasterCard and Maestro. Another unusual trait is that these credit and debit card options are the only way to deposit; no e-wallet or bank transfer options as most other UK online casinos offer.
Withdrawals can be made to Visa or Maestro in a minimum amount of £10 and a daily maximum of £175,000. UK players are able to request a wire transfer, but direct bank transfers are only available to foreign bank accounts for some reason.
Safety and Security
Pink Casino is based in Alderney, a UK whitelisted territory known for very good regulation of their casino sites. In addition to oversight by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, Alderney casinos are also subject to regulation by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission.
The "help" section of the site indicates that Pink Casino uses third-party testing to verify game fairness, but it does not mention which agency they use.
Bonuses and Player's Club
New players can take advantage of both a "no deposit" and a first deposit match bonus when they set up their new accounts.
£10 is yours for the taking without making a deposit ... but don't get too excited just yet. It's subject to a whopping 99x wagering requirement, and if you survive that with a profit there is also a withdrawal cap of £50.
The matching bonus is more in line with industry standards, though it is definitely on the small side. You get a 100% match, but only up to a maximum of £50. This is subject to a 40x wagering requirement and game types have varying contribution levels.
Pink Casino also seems to frequently offer 50% deposit matching bonuses to their current customers, but these are subject to a 50x wagering requirement.
There is no loyalty club, but there is a VIP program that is invitation-only.
Is Pink Casino Worth It?
Pink Casino's marketing approach is tough to understand. It's very odd to see a casino attempt to cater to one demographic at the expense of another. It's not unheard of, but this is the first case we can think of that seems to court women specifically at the risk of turning off men. Having gender-centric fitness centers and spas makes at least some level of sense, casinos not quite as much.
The graphical wrapper is less of an issue than the bonus terms, however. The 99x wagering requirement on the "no deposit" bonus is the highest we've ever seen in the UK and is so bad that they really would have been better off not even making the offer. The 40x and 50x for the other bonus types are also definitely at the high end of the market.
Combine that with one of the most restrictive deposit and withdrawal systems we've seen, and Pink Casino becomes very hard to recommend to anyone. Perhaps if you'd like to play very pink bingo?
