FansBet was founded in 2016 and is one of the newer online casinos. In the last three years or so, FansBet has already made a name for itself as one of the online casino industry’s best and most promising newcomers.
Claiming to be one of the only online casinos and bookies in the UK that shares its profits with the supporters, we had high hopes when we went for a poke around to see what’s what.
Owned by Viral Interactive Ltd and licensed in Malta and the UK, FansBet Casino is home to a huge range of games and is powered by some of the industry’s best software suppliers. These include NetEnt and Microgaming to name just two of them. Those familiar with online casinos will know that these are some seriously good suppliers and, as such, will expect good things!
Despite much of FansBet leaning heavily towards the sportsbook element of their service, there is still a strong online casino.
FansBet Casino Games
At the time of writing this review, FansBet casino had over 1,000 table games and slots. That’s a huge number for a site that is really focussed on sports betting and fantasy sports. Around 700 of these 1,000+ games are video slots and progressive jackpots with Microgaming providing almost 400 of these.
In addition to a large range of slots games, players can enjoy over 60 table games at the FansBet online casino. Major names like European Roulette and American Roulette sit alongside slick variants like Microgaming’s Premier Roulette and Play’n GO’s Multi-Hand Blackjack.
For VIP players, there is a range of high-stakes games that are available. These include NetEnt’s ‘Roulette Advanced’ with top bets of £5,000!
One downside, however—there are no demo versions of FansBet Casino games. If you want to try them out, you’re going to have to part ways with some real cash.Back to top ↑
FansBet Casino Mobile Compatibility
FansBet operates via an instant-play platform that you can access through any web browser, even mobile web browsers. You do not need to download any software or tinker with any settings; it is good to go right out of the box.
While you can access FansBet Casino through your mobile browser, you do not get the full experience. FansBet Casino on mobile has around 400 fewer games than its desktop counterpart. That being said, there are still hundreds of different games to choose from and they all work perfectly well without any problems.
We have only one gripe with FansBet Casino’s layout on both desktop and mobile—it is highly designed for and geared towards the sportsbook style of play. There are no options to filter by game type (e.g. jackpot games, table games) and you cannot sort by filters such as ‘New Games’ or ‘Popularity’.
This basic functionality should really be looked at.Back to top ↑
FansBet Banking Methods
FansBet Casino’s banking works very well. You can make deposits into your FansBet account using a range of cards and banking options. You can also select one of several currencies when signing up that include GBP, EUR, NOK, SEK, CAD, and AUD.
Deposit and withdrawal methods include MasterCard, Visa, and Maestro. You also have a choice of e-wallets such as Neteller and Skrill. The Minimum Withdrawal amount across all payment methods is £10 and the maximum is £10,000 per day which should be more than suitable for most players, if not all.
Withdrawal limits of £7,000 per week apply to players from outside the UK and Sweden.Back to top ↑
FansBet Casino Summary
Overall, FansBet provides an excellent online casino facility that can be enjoyed on both desktop and mobile. We did have a few gripes and there are certainly areas for improvement, though.
The thing with FansBet Casino is that it feels more like a sportsbook than a casino; if FansBet were to fully separate the two and have two completely independent designs for them, the situation would be a whole lot better. We were particularly annoyed by the lack of filtering options when searching through the casino games, the number of which stretches into the thousands.
Still, though, these are not deal breakers and if you can look past them, FansBet is a great online casino.Back to top ↑
