Casineia boasts that it is the best casino in Sweden. However, this lofty claim is quickly undermined by the fact the house does not really have anything special going for it. In fact, in many regards it is pretty subpar. There are not that many promotions it offers its clients, for instance. The policies regarding what deposit method you can use are rather restrictive too. And to top it off, the games that are available are pretty few, when the rest of the industry is considered.
But not everything about Casineia is irredeemable. It has a decent sportsbook, and what few promotions it runs seem to be pretty good. Also, the casino does present us with a license. So we would need to examine the casino in more detail, as that would be the only way to know for sure whether we can recommend it or not. Here is everything you need to know about Casineia:
The four types of bonuses that are offered with the casino are available below:
|Bonus||Min deposit||Max bonus||Wagering requirements||Cash out limit|
|Welcome Bonus 100%||500 SEK||100% up to 10000 SEK||1x||None|
|Welcome Bonus 50%||500 SEK||50% up to 20000 SEK||1x||None|
|Weekly Bonus||500 SEK||50000 SEK||Unspecified||None|
|Super Weekly Bonus||1000 SEK||50000 SEK||Unspecified||None|
Let's start with the two Welcome Bonuses. These are available upon the first deposit you make, so you can chose only one of them. Both require an entry price of 500 SEK (about $50 at the time of writing), and both have a pretty generous maximum – 10 000 SEK and 20 000 SEK, respectively. The difference is in how the bonus is calculated. The Welcome Bonus 100% simply adds the amount of money you have deposited as bonus funds. The Welcome Bonus 50% adds only half of it, as the name suggests.
This means that claiming the full 10 000 SEK bonus would mean you need to deposit about as much. But the 20 000 SEK bonus would require a deposit of 40 000 SEK. So make sure that you are careful which of the two promotions you accept! The second one is the better option for high-rollers.
The casino boasts that there are no wagering requirements for these two promotions. You only need to wager them once to withdraw. Normally, the turnover requirements for bonuses with casinos are 30x to 40x, so this is a pretty generous way to structure your welcome promotion. There does not seem to be a cash out limit either, making this a great welcome bonus.
However, things are not so great when it comes to the recurring bonuses that are offered by Casineia. The website it runs does not contain any kind of detailed information on them, and so we are left guessing about a number of their important aspects. For instance, when are the Weekly Bonus and the Super Weekly Bonus available? The name would suggest a particular day of the week, but it could also mean the bonus is available once each week. There is no way to know when nothing about the promotion is made clear! This includes its wagering requirements. And we would severely doubt that the casino has the same low 1x turnover here as well. Instead, it is far more likely that the common 30x-40x range is where the wagering requirement lies. This critical lack of transparency is very disappointing and, to be honest, rather shady!
Either way, what we do know about these promotions is that the Weekly Bonus requires a deposit of 500 SEK or higher to activate and adds 100% of that deposit as bonus funds, all the way up to 50 000 SEK. The Super Weekly Bonus on the other hand, is calculated as 175% of the deposit, which means you need to put in less money to claim the maximum of 50 000 SEK. To compensate for that, there is a higher entry cost associated with the promotion – you need to put in 1000 SEK or more to claim it.
Lastly, there is a Cashback Program that is available to the VIP clients of Casineia. Unfortunately, the casino does not seem interested in explaining what these VIP clients are and how to become one. Nor does it actually mention how much you can get in the cashback. It is only mentioned in passing on its website. Cashbacks are a way for players to make some of the money they lost while betting back. They usually have a low percentage, between 5% and 10%. There can also be additional wagering requirements on funds you have reclaimed that way. These are quite small in general, though, with the average being around 3x.
There are no more bonuses, which is a bit disappointing. The casino offers sports betting, but no Freebet bonuses, nor any kind of interesting promotions that you can use there. And the casino bonuses which are available lack Free Spins too. So we cannot rate the promotional structure of Casineia too high.
Casineia has the following to say about its regulation:
The casino is allegedly licensed by CIL. This is one of the four master license holders in Curacao. The regulatory regime there is pretty interesting and rather unique. The four entities we mentioned have been delegated the power to regulate the egaming sector in Curacao by its government. They issue licenses to companies that follow their regulatory rules. These rules are different for each of the four bodies, but all of them seek to prevent the same risks to players. For instance, the slots that CIL licensed bodies use are audited independently, so that the random number generators within them are truly random. This means you can be sure that you are not playing a fixed game. Also, there are rules regarding the way your sensitive persona and payments data needs to be stored, which seeks to make hacks or leaks of it much less frequent, or common.
All of these and more protections would apply to Casineia, if it is actually licensed. To certify which entities are approved by the CIL and which are not, the regulator requires the casinos to have a dynamic seal on their websites. This is what the logo in the top right corner of the previous screenshot looks like. Clicking it reveals the following license:
So it seems everything is in order here. These licenses can technically be forged, because the CIL is the only one of the four regulators to not upload them to a proprietary registrar. However, we don't believe this is the case here, because the casino does not have any major red flags.
Languages: Swedish (Svenska)
Restricted countries: United States
Deposit and Withdrawal
Below are the methods of payment you can use with Casineia:
|Deposit method||Minimum||Maximum||Processing time||Fee|
|Crypto||250 SEK||Unspecified||up to 24 hours||Free|
|Withdrawal method||Minimum||Maximum||Processing time||Fee|
|Crypto||500 SEK||Unspecified||up to 36 hours||Free|
Currencies: Swedish Krona (SEK)
It accepts only crypto, and only four tokens at that. The deposits screen even directs you to Binance to buy the tokens if you don't have any crypto. This is a convoluted means of payment to serve your players with, especially if they have not used crypto before. Most people use credit cards and e-wallets to deal with casinos. E-vouchers and wire transfers are also widely used. There is nothing wrong with crypto deposits, but we would have liked to see some variety!
There is also something to be said about the minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts. The former are acceptable, sitting at 250 SEK. But the minimum withdrawal is set to 500 SEK (about $48!). This is way too much, and casinos require way less on average.
At least both deposits and withdrawals will be processed rather quickly – the time in which Casineia claims to be able to do so is just 24 hours for cashing in and 36 for cashing out. That is a pretty reasonable timeframe for both of them.
There are no fees the casino charges either, but you should know third party fees apply. These can be pretty high as far as crypto is concerned, in certain timeframes.
Games and Game Suppliers
The Game Suppliers Casineia features are Pragmatic Play, NetEnt, MicroGaming, PlaySoft, Habanero, Yggdrasil, Apex, Ainsoft, Wadzan, Betsoft, Play n Go, and a couple others, with 18nete suppliers in total. Here is a complete list of these companies:
Game providers: NetEnt, Novomatic, Microgaming, Merkur, Play'n GO, PragmaticPlay, Yggdrasil, Quickspin, Big Time Gaming, Amatic, Wazdan, Habanero, Apollo Games, Other
That is a decent amount, but most casinos have more – and that is why they have more games too. Speaking of games, the ones Casineia offers are not that many either, but at least they are organized in a way that makes them convenient to browse. There is a section that highlights new games that the casino recommends to you, which we found to be pretty good. Other than that, there are Slots, with titles like Gates of Olympus, Book of Dead, Gonzo's Quest, Starburst, FruitShop and many more all avaialble.
Fans of Table Games will only be able to play their live versions. There are several virtual rooms where you can bet on Baccarat, Poker, Blackjack and Roulettes. Speaking of live games, Game Shows are also available. Crazy Time, Gonzo's Treasure Hunt, Crazy Coin Flip, Cash or Crash, Monopoly Big Baller, Deal or no Deal are just some of the titles in this category.
The Casineia Sportsbook is pretty vast. There are Football, Tennis, Handball, Cricket, boxing and a couple others available for live betting. Prematch betting on a lot of other sports, as well as many Football events. Leagues like UEFA, the English, French and Swedish all available, with all of their respective divisions. Esports available for prematch betting, with 204 events to bet on. These include League of Legends, CS Go, Starcraft 2 and many others. Smaller sports like Footsal and Darts can be bet on as well.
The casino we are covering might not be the best in Sweden, but definitely has a lot of advantages. These are its regulation and fast payment processing times, as well as its decent amount of sports to bet on. The downsides are the lack of bonuses, lack of variety in games and the restrictive deposit methods. If you can live with them, Casineia is a decent casino to check out.
