Europa Casino, founded in 2003, market themselves as Europe’s premier online gambling destination.

As the name suggests, Europa focuses largely on the European market, though customers from many European countries, including large markets like the UK, France and Germany, are unable to sign up due to gambling regulations issues.

Bonuses and Promotions

europa casino

Europa Casino offers a wide range of bonuses for new and old players alike.

But are they any good?

On the surface, they appear to be. But take a look at some of the terms we’ve listed below, and you’ll realize that not all is at it seems.

Once a bonus is applied to your account, you won’t be able to withdraw your original deposit until you meet the requirements for the bonus as a whole.

100% up to $100 per month

  • Europa Casino will match your first deposit each month for a year up to $100
  • This bonus will only be applied automatically in month one. After that, you’ll need to email support to request the bonus.
  • You must wager your deposit + bonus 20x before you can cash out.

$500 High roller bonus

  • If your first deposit is $1000 or more, receive a $500 bonus
  • You must wager your deposit + bonus 20x before you can cash out.

Earn up to 15% bonus on some deposits

  • Earn a 10% bonus on deposits with:
    • Giropay, Nordea, EPS, Enets, EcoCard, Paysafecard, Instadebit, Moneta.ru, or UsemyBank
  • Earn a 15% bonus on deposits with:
    • Instant Wire Transfer, Sofortüberweisung, POLi, or Ukash
  • You must wager your deposit + bonus 25x before you can withdraw your winnings
  • These bonuses are limited to $250 per month
  • Bonuses must be requested by emailing the support team

Free Spins Tuesday

  • Deposit 20 euro on a Tuesday to receive 20 free spins on a certain game
  • Redeemable 3 times each week for a total of up to 60 free spins
  • You must wager winnings from your free spins 50x before you can withdraw your winnings

Games

Europa casino offers a reasonable variety of games, around 200, though with only software from Playtech available, the selection isn’t as diverse as it could be.

Popular games include:

  • Jungle Giants
  • Age of the Gods
  • Fruit Spin

Alongside the slots, you’ll find all the usual table games, including several live options, such as blackjack and roulette.

Again, the selection isn’t a big as some out there, so if you’re looking for the biggest variety there are better casinos on the market.

Payments

europa casino review

Here’s one area where Europa Casino finds itself ahead of much of the competition. Why?

There are a huge number of deposit options to choose from, and a reasonable number of withdrawal options.

Deposits at Europa can be made by:

  • Bank Wire Transfer
  • Maestro
  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Paysafe Card
  • Ukash
  • Visa Electron
  • instaDebit
  • Visa
  • Entropay
  • Przelewy24
  • Sofortuberwaisung
  • Nordea
  • POLi
  • GiroPay
  • Abaqoos
  • eKonto
  • Moneta
  • Multibanco
  • Diners Club International
  • DineroMail
  • Transferencia Bancaria Local
  • Skrill
  • PayPal
  • Visa Delta
  • EPS
  • FundSend
  • QIWI
  • Todito Cash
  • SporoPay
  • AstroPay Card
  • Instant Bank
  • PugglePay
  • TrustPay
  • Swiff
  • Instant Banking
  • WebMoney
  • PayU
  • SafetyPay
  • iDebit
  • EcoCard
  • eCard
  • ClickandBuy
  • MyCitadel

And withdrawals by:

  • Cheque
  • ClickandBuy
  • MyCitadel
  • Neteller
  • Visa Electron
  • instaDebit
  • Visa
  • Skril

Important!

There is a withdrawal limit of $9990 per month.

Sound like enough for most people?

That may be the case, but the real kicker is that this limit also applies to progressive jackpots, which can pay out tens of millions of dollars. Starting to see the problem?

If you’re lucky enough to win big at Europa, it could take a very long time (we’re talking decades) to withdraw your money.

Note: Withdrawal times vary depending on the method.

EWallets are quickest (24-48 hours), and cheques are slowest (2-28 days).

Support

europa casino review 2018

Europa Casino offers 24/7 support through a variety of channels, including:

  • Live Chat
  • International phone
  • Email
  • Fax
  • Post.

User reviews we’ve seen on the subject of support are mixed, so on some days may have to get a little lucky to have any problems dealt with quickly.

Conclusion

Europa casino markets itself as a ‘premium’ player in the world of online gambling and on the surface, the site looks promising.

The UI is responsive, and the casino is fairly well presented, making it easy to navigate to your favourite games. But we’re just talking cosmetics here.

Dig a little deeper and things don’t look so rosy…

With software provided only by Playtech, the number of games and live tables on offer is somewhat limited compared to other online casinos.

But where things really take a turn for the worse is with Europa Casino’s approach to applying bonuses and promotions. Why?

Well, wagering requirements are standard small-print items across the industry, but they don’t usually apply to a customer’s own deposited cash, as they do at Europa Casino.

To make that clear:

If you make a deposit with Europa and receive a bonus on that deposit, you won’t be able to withdraw anything (including your original deposit) until you’ve met the wagering requirements, which are generally 20-50x deposit and bonus combined.

Take the high roller bonus as an example:

Deposit your $1000 and get $500 back from Europa. Sounds great, right?

Actually no, not so much.

Before you can withdraw any of this sum, including your original deposit of $1000, you must first wager 20x your deposit + bonus. In other words: $30 000.

Coupled with the fact that winners of the site’s biggest prizes are only able to withdraw their winnings over many, many years, and it’s perhaps no coincidence that we’ve seen Europa casino restricted in several of Europe’s biggest markets (ironic, right?) due to gambling regulations issues.

In fact, there’s a hefty list of restricted territories here, with some of the biggies including USA, UK, Canada, Spain, Turkey, Netherlands, Germany, France and many more.

So, are there any redeeming features?

Honestly, not really.

While there are some nice games on offer and the site is well put together and responsive, there isn’t enough here to overcome the major issues we have with the casino.

Attractive-looking bonuses and promotions are, when you read the small print, not so attractive after all.

If you’re looking for somewhere new to get your fix, Europa Casino probably isn’t it.

What We Loved

  • Nice website presentation
  • A wide range of deposit options

What We Didn’t Like

  • Highly questionable approach to bonuses and pay-outs
  • Only Playtech games available
  • Unavailable in many key European markets, despite the name

Summary

With an approach to bonuses and promotions that seems to make it very hard for players to successfully withdraw their winnings (or even their original deposits), we rate Europa Casino very low and can not recommend it.
