Review of Surf Casino
Surf Casino is one of the casinos that were launched in recent years, having a founding date from October 2017. This is obviously a surfing-themed casino, which has a lot of water-themed elements in its design, and which prioritizes games that have a connection to Hawaii, to surfing, pirates or ocean treasures. The gaming license was obtained from Curacao. As for the operator of this casino, the company doing it is called Direx NV, also based in Curacao, a subsidiary for Direx Limited, from Cyprus.
Their website is available in two languages, which shows a bit what their priorities are perhaps. Those languages are English and Russian.
Surf Casino Games
The software and the games offered at Surf Casino come on the SoftSwiss platform. Other game providers which contribute to it include popular names like Microgaming, Play n Go, Yggdrasil Gaming, NetEnt, Endorphina, Evolution Gaming, NYX or Amatic.
Slots – As always, if you want the most variety and entertainment from a casino, go to their slot machines, since there is something new there on a regular basis. Several developers are contributing to this section, and there are hundreds of games for you to explore. There is the surf/water themed games of course, but most of the content will be a regular one, ranging from games like 300 Shields (Spartan warriors) to Battlestar Galactica (TV-themed branded slot).
Table Games – Though they’re not that well populated, the casino uses special categories for Roulette and Blackjack, the former with about 9 titles, the latter with 4 games.
Other Games – if you’re looking for Bingo, Racing, Video Poker and other games, look for them in this category.
Live Dealer – this is a category that is well represented, thanks to the inclusion of Evolution Gaming among the game providers. This is the best provider of live dealer games right now, and besides the usual Casino Holdem, Blackjack, Baccarat or Roulette, they also have their own content, the Dream Catcher.
Surf Mobile Casino
Surf Casino doesn’t offer its own app, but it’s optimized for mobile use, and it’s expected to run properly on Android, iOS or Windows devices, both phones and tablets.
Surf Casino Bonuses
As a new casino, it’s important for Surf to get new players, but also to help them decide to stick around. They’re doing this with the help of a welcome bonus that is designed to cover the first three deposits. It’s at $100 and up to $100 for the first one, at 75% and $75 for the second deposit, while the third one is at 50% and $50. The bonus amount must be wagered 40x, 30x and 20x, respectively, before you can withdraw. A maximum bet of $1 needs to be used in order for the wagering requirements to be met.
In addition to cash, Surf Casino will also give you free spins at a slot machine that is surf themed. Depending on the size of your deposit, you get 25, 50 or 100 free spins, usable either at Wild Water or Aloha Cluster Pays, both being NetEnt slots.
Once you’re in, you also get Reload Bonuses, of 50% and up to $50 on Wednesdays, and 100% and up to $100 on Fridays.
Safety and Security
Safety wise, Surf Casino seems to be doing everything that a casino should, like the fact that its website is encrypting the communications it has with the player’s browser.
A downside as far as I’m concerned would be the Curacao gaming license, which isn’t as reputable as it would be if it was coming from Malta.
Countries Accepted by Surf Casino
The list of countries which are accepted at Surf Casino is much longer than the one of blocked ones. The countries from which they don’t accept players are United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Netherlands, France and Israel.
Deposit & Withdrawal Options
The currencies which are supported at Surf Casino include the USD, EUR, RUB, AUD, CAD, SEK and BTC. This means that players based in the European Union, Russia, Sweden, Canada or Australia can play in their own currency. The USD is more of an option for international players that don’t fall into any of the other categories since the United States is not allowed. BTC (Bitcoins) is also another option for international players and the withdrawals are instant.
As for the deposits or withdrawal options which are listed, they are all free of any fees and the processing time is instant in every case. Both for deposits and withdrawals there are limits between $10 and $10,000, per transaction.
The payment methods which are available include:
Credit Cards/Debit – Visa, MasterCard and Maestro.
e-Wallets – Qiwi, Skrill, Sofort, Yandex, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Trustly and Zimpler.
Bitcoin – The Cubits option is also there, this being for cryptocurrency like Bitcoins are accepted.
Most of these options are also listed for withdrawals as well, with the exception of Zimpler and PaySafeCard.
While Surf Casino does not offer phone support, they do have live chat available 24/7, something that even some of the bigger names can’t manage. An alternative would be to use an email to contact the customer support team if you’re not in a hurry and you can wait a few hours for your reply. Overall, I feel like they’re doing an OK job in this area, but there are things that could be improved.
