Argo Casino

Modern sit with slots of great times and the option to download dedicated software for smooth gameplay.

Overview

Argo Casino was launched in 2014 on a PlayTech platform with a mind to target the Russian gambling market but today has extended its reach to most of Europe and even Asia. It has the same management as its sister casino Zig Zag 777 so also shares the same restrictions on over 20 countries, including USA, Canada, UK and many Western European nations. It can be viewed in Russian, Romanian, German, Polish, Swedish and English.

Chiefly a slots casino, the graphics are smooth and content regularly updated. However, while designed for browser play on both computer and mobile, its mobile version can be very clumsy. Users browsing through the casino will often be asked to download the software and to play from there instead for a smoother experience.

Live Support isn’t as “highly-trained” or “professional” as advertised, in our brief experience. While they were friendly, they couldn’t respond to our very basic questions immediately, asking us to wait and fill in our details (we did) while they looked for answers. We only got an answer an hour later!

Deposits and Withdrawals

Argo Casino accepts a variety of methods to process deposits, including Visa, Mastercard, Visa Electron, Neteller, Skrill, PaySafeCard and Trustpay, using currencies including EUR, RUB and PLN. You can use Bitcoin here, but only using the EUR equivalent. All deposits, starting at a minimum of EUR 10 and having no limits, are instantly available for play.

Withdrawals are a bit tricky, and this won’t be clear from their Terms and Conditions until you actually request one. You can only withdraw via Visa, Visa Electron and Skrill at a minimum of EUR 20, so make sure you have these available before you deposit! There is a EUR 1,500 limit every 24 hours and EUR 20,000 per month. These are not instant, either, and can take up to 24 hours after your identity is verified.

They’ll also charge you a 10% fee to withdraw if you don’t wager your deposit at least once.

Games

There’s a great line-up of slots from a slew of gaming providers including the likes of Endorphina, Amatic, PragmaticPlay and Mr. Slotty. A check on their Popular section brings up slots titles like The Finer Reels of Life, 8 Dragons, Beautiful Bones, Shangri La and Magic Owl. Under Retro Games you’ll find classic titles like 888 Gold, Retro Reels and Eye of Ra, featuring bubble gum cartoon-like graphics.

They do seem to load a bit slower than on most other sites and unless you have slender fingers, you might find the mobile versions a bit of a hassle to tap on. That’s probably why they recommend the full software download option.

If you’re not feeling particularly lucky at slots, you can try out the Table Games to try out their selection of 40 titles covering games such as Black Jack, Poker and Baccarat. There is a small selection of eight Live Dealer Games. The downside is that they are all featuring Roulette from NetEnt.

Bonuses

Deposit at least EUR 10 and enjoy a 100% First Deposit bonus of up to EUR 200. Make further deposits on the weekend and get a 40% bonus credited to your account up to EUR 1,000. Each week, you can deposit a minimum of EUR 10 and also enjoy a 30% Deposit bonus of up to EUR 500. These bonuses have a wager requirement of 40 times.

Additionally, you can take advantage of their Loyalty Programme to earn 1 point for each EUR 50 you wager on slots, which you can then convert into bonus cash. The more you earn, the better the conversion rates. Losing a lot? You can also get back 15% on nett losses as a bonus, as much as EUR 1,000 every week. The downside? All these extra bonuses also have a 40x wager requirement.

It’s a casino with a Greek name, so maybe that’s why their weekly tournament features the Minotaurus slots game. Every week, play the featured slot and compete for a prize pool of 5,000 Loyalty Points.
