Metal Casino's logo looks like something you would find in the liner notes of a Metallica album somewhere; perhaps the Grateful Dead as well, though that's not exactly "metal." Whatever the case, this online UK casino from MT SecureTrade Ltd. clearly invokes a world of epic riffs and impractical leather outfits.
It has even managed to recruit the one and only Ozzy Osbourne as a spokesperson, getting the Prince of Darkness to sit down for an extended interview in which he plays licensed metal-themed slots titles; the company also sometimes streams live performances on Wednesdays and Fridays (such as the Sweden Rock Festival) and conducts interviews with bands on their YouTube page.
Metal Casino has an impressive commitment to their theme, something that's always nice to see even if one doesn't observe a tremendous natural overlap between thrashers and online casino players. It's an offbeat idea in the UK online casino world, but it's always nice to see something very different from the cookie-cutter virtual slots parlours.
So the hard rockin' theme is fun and novel if you're into it, but how about the games and the casino experience? Is it just South Of Heaven, or will it leave you Screaming For Vengeance? We will Holy Dive on in with today's blog post.
Available Games and Software
Metal Casino has a total count of about 360 games at present, which was about on par when it was launched in 2017 but is lagging a bit behind the leading online casinos in total count. It's a nice variety of games, however.
You'll find surprisingly few of the big-name slots connected to bands here: Megadeth, Motorhead and of course Ozzy Osbourne are the ones that jump out. To be fair, there isn't a huge amount of rock- and metal-themed slots out there. There is a nice variety of themes for everyone, but there is a definite emphasis on titles with sexy graphics suitable for an album cover here: Pimped, Pistoleros, Lucky Witch, Mermaid's Diamond and so on.
In terms of progressive jackpot games, there are three with big prizes: Mega Moolah Isis, King Cashalot and Major Millions.
There are only a handful of table games, but there is a live dealer casino (powered by Evolution Gaming) with seven games: three types of roulette, blackjack, baccarat, Casino Hold 'Em and Dream Catcher.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Metal Casino supports Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard - and if you happen to visit Sweden, Zimpler.
There are no fees for deposits or withdrawals, but there are minimums - £10 for all deposits, £20 for all withdrawals regardless of the payment method. Deposit and withdrawal daily maximums are usually £5,000, except for the standard restrictions of Paysafecard. There is an additional £10,000 per week withdrawal limit.

Bonuses and Player's Club
Metal Casino offers bonuses on your first two deposits, with a wagering requirement of 50x.
Deposit 1: 100% matching bonus up to £100, plus three spins of a prize wheel. If the deposit is under £50 you spin the Super Wheel, under £100 you spin the Mega Wheel, and over £100 you spin the Epic Wheel.
Deposit 2: 50% matching bonus up to £100, plus an amount of Metcoins that increases depending on the size of the deposit (from 100 to 666).
Okay, so what are all of these Super and Epic Wheels about, and what is a Metcoin?
The wheel concept is pretty simple. Each one has a bigger and better array of prizes - free spins, free merchandise and so on. The Epic Wheel guarantees that you'll get some sort of prize on each and every spin.
Now, Metcoins. These are just the site's version of loyalty points. You can exchange these for the usual free play funds and free spins, but you can also opt to visit the Merch Shop with them. The merch shop has things like signed gear and actual stage-used items from rock legends, which are changed out from time to time.
There isn't really a tiered loyalty programme, but there is the World Tour board. As you rack up loyalty points, you'll move up the board and tick off famous concert locations. Each level-up gives you a spin of the Golden Wheel for a guaranteed goodie of some sort. There's an additional 100 Metcoin bonus if you hit your level-up between 22:00 and 00:00 CET every night.
Is Metal Casino Worth It?
If you're a fan of the riffs and licks, Metal Casino offers a theme and added value items that you just can't get anywhere else right now. The bonus items that they produce like the free streaming shows, videos, and Metal Diary interviews are actually pretty cool. It's nice to see an online casino do more with its theme than just slap up some cheap graphics and call it a day.
The actual gaming is decent, if nothing in particular stands out. The autographed swag and such at the Merch Shop is the kind of unique enticement you don't see often at online casinos. The Metcoin and Golden Wheel system is also a bit more rewarding and a good value than the usual loyalty point scheme.
