Das ist Casino Review
*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.
Software: NetEnt, NextGen, iSoftBet, BetSoft, SoftSwiss, Elk Studios
Das ist Casino welcomes you with a slogan “made in Germany” and goes on to demonstrate all of the qualities usually associated with a German product or service: straightforwardness, reliability and honesty. While featuring close to 1,000 games from NetEnt, Nyx, iSoftBet and about 18 other developers, and welcoming you with as much as €3,500 in bonuses, this gaming site will allow you to enjoy fast cash-outs in Bitcoins, EUR, USD or RUB. Reputable operator makes sure to provide completely safe gaming experience and customer support reachable 24/7.
Loads of gaming options and user-friendly environment are surely highly important influencing factors, but let’s not underestimate the attraction of freebies offered to motivate sign-ups and repeat visits. Das ist Casino certainly doesn’t. They’ll start you off with a 3-tiered welcome package offering Up to 400 EUR + 150 FREE SPINS with your first deposit of €20 or more. Bonuses will have to be wagered 60 times before cashing out, but do note that only SoftSwiss slots count 100% towards play-through requirements. Slots developed by other game providers contribute only 60%, and all other casino games 5% (excluding live ones).
Weekly Reload promotion allows you to claim 70% up to €200 twice per week, providing you use bonus code WEEKLY, while Weekend Madness offers 75% up to €200 on your first 2 deposits every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (code DASISTWEEKEND). However, the Adventure is the most distinctive part of the Casino’s promotional portfolio. So what’s that about?
You’ll be taking a virtual trip across Germany and unlocking new territories simply by playing for cash. Every new land that you unlock earns you cash bonus or free spin bundles, and having travelled through the entire country, get ready to receive a special reward.
Layout & Design
We probably would have guessed the Casino’s nationality based on its design alone. Rather than going all flashy and using layout and colours typical for online casinos around the world, the operator has opted for clarity and ease of use. White background is a great way to place focus on two most important elements of their offering – the truly generous welcome bonus and featured games, while simple top menu offers access to Promotions, Payments, and Adventure. Before saying “I do” to this tempting proposal, make sure to read Terms & Conditions available via the link on the bottom. This is also where you’ll find the route to FAQ section and familiarise yourself with bonus terms. Games can be accessed through side menu on the right, and if you scroll further down, you’ll also see links to Providers, Payments and Support. No digging necessary, everything is just one click away.
Software & Games
An incredibly fast sign up process gives you immediate access to about 1,000 games developed by NetEnt, NextGen, iSoftBet, BetSoft, SoftSwiss, Elk Studios, Thunderkick, Pragmatic Play, Endorphina, Amatic, Amaya, GameArt, Habanero, Belatra, Booming Games, EGT, MrSlotty and Igaming2go. No downloads are necessary and you can play for cash or test the games in Play-for-Fun mode. Mobile responsive website is available to owners of iOS and Android devices.
Going through the Lobby allows you to choose among new, popular and jackpot games, while having selected the category enables you to filter them by provider. However, a few additional search options would be highly appreciated when faced with such a large game selection. Jackpot section features quite a few BetSoft progressives which rarely go above 5 figures, but also provides Absolute Super Reels with €1.5 million jackpot and Diamond Wild displaying a staggering €21.9 million value.
The Casino is equally generous when it comes to table games. About 250 non-slot options include Surrender, Double Exposure, 3D Multihand, Super 7’s Blackjack and Pontoon, several versions of Baccarat, among which Zero Commission and Punto Banco, and tons of Poker games. Fans of the latter get to choose between Casino and Texas Hold’em, Oasis, Caribbean and Trey Poker, Pai Gow, Triple Edge and lovely 3D Heads Up Hold’em, as well as a massive portfolio of Video Pokers. Collection of card games further contains Top Card Trumps, High Low, Rummy and Red Dog. If cards are not your thing, spins the wheel of one of dozen Roulette games, or let the dice bring you good luck while playing Sic Bo or Pocket Dice. There’s plenty to pick from, no doubt, if only there were more filtering options.
Enter Live Dealer section to take a virtual seat at one of 17 tables hosted by friendly and professional dealers who’ll be happy to chat. Evolution Gaming and Ezugi both offer realistic land-based casino experience with games such as Blackjack Party and VIP Blackjack, Baccarat Squeeze, Live Roulette and Casino Hold’em. What’s not so common is that live games also display Play-for-Fun button. This does not mean you’ll really get to play for free, but games can be launched and observed even if your account balance is zero.
Min. Deposit: €20
Min. Withdrawal: €20
Players can top up their balance and make withdrawals in Bitcoin, Euro, US dollars and Russian Rubles. Fairly extensive list of payment methods includes credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro), Bitcoin payment options such as Cubits, E-wallets (Skrill, Neteller), Sofort, Cep Bank, Paysafecard, Trustly, ComePay, Qiwi and Zimpler. Most of them come with a €20 minimum and €10,000 maximum per transaction, both for deposits and withdrawals, though you will see different kind of limits in other sections of the site. Within T&C, for example, the operator lists maximum cash-out value of €4,000 Euro (or 10 BTC) per week and €15,000 (40 BTC) per month, while stating exceptions will be made for players with a higher VIP status and winners of progressive jackpots. You’ll be happy to know your winnings can be released within 12 hours, which is super-fast in the online gambling world.
License & Background
Prior to launching their first gaming products in 2005, a team of software developers have done their homework in both the physical and virtual gaming world. Experience gained while working in land-based and online casinos was used to build dozen successful gaming sites which are today managed by Direx N.V. Casinos.
Das ist Casino is one of their latest undertakings, having appeared online in 2016. Even if it’s not been around for long, the Casino has received numerous positive reviews from both the players and the industry, following in the footsteps of its older siblings Bitstarz, Oshi and Megawins Casino.
Licensed by the Curacao Gaming Committee, Das ist Casino implements 128-bit SSL technology to guarantee safety of all transactions. All of their games were approved by European Gambling Commission and as such comply with strict requirements and security guidelines. Not everybody can enjoy this safe gaming experience, though. Short list of restricted countries includes Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, UK, Israel and US.
The first place to look for answers should always be FAQ list. Some operators do a better job than others when creating its content, and while not the worst, Das ist Casino is equally not the best. Yes, you will find most important information, but the list is far from being the most comprehensive one we’ve seen. Luckily, customer support service is available 24/7. Players can talk to an agent in English, German, Russian, Swedish, Greek or Turkish, either by opening live chat window or writing a message in the web-based form. Fairly frequent posts on Facebook and Twitter indicate there’s someone keeping an eye on social networks and will be able to offer assistance when needed.
