Golden Euro Casino Review

Golden Euro mobile casino works hand in hand with their download client and instant play browser version for a seamless on the go  online gambling experience. The site was launched in 2012 by the same people who bring you the award-winning Jackpot Capital.

This is one of the only casinos on the Realtime Gaming platform that accepts deposits and pays out in euros. 

The site operates under the authority of a Preferential Seal, Issued by the Directorate of Offshore Gaming of Antigua and Barbuda under the company name, Continental Ventures, Ltd. and ultimately under the Financial Services Regulatory Commission in St. Johns.

Look for casino classics like Caribbean Hold´em, Video Poker, Roulette, and Blackjack as well as  Keno and other specialty games. However, in a portfolio that offers hundreds of options, the majority of the gaming titles are slots. Most have random jackpots and others offer progressive prizes worth up to and over a million euros.

Banking options vary by country, but some of the deposit and withdrawal options include cards, eWallets, vouchers, and wire transfers. Reverse withdrawals are accepted for those who change their mind and choose to play on or try to pick up a winning streak without using outside financial instruments for a next deposit.

All bonuses are listed in the promotions section of the cashier, including a generous welcome bonus. Incentives to stick around after  you discover Golden Euro include a second welcome as well as email offers if you opt in and a continually populating promotions tab in the cashier.

The site’s reputation among players is second to none with no known complaints going unanswered over the last decade. Out of more than 2,000 gaming sites rated by players at LCB.org, this operation ranks in the top 200 with a current ⅘ rating. 

The more negative comments over the years tend to trend toward issues of bonus availability by country, regionally specific payment methods, slower payouts (up to 72 hours pending), and, of course, players who thought it should be their turn to win.

Even the midrange ratings (2.5+) are usually accompanied by comments highlighting the positive sides of gaming there including no worries about getting paid, frequent generous bonus offers, friendly, attentive, and intelligent customer service, and easy document verification.

Please see the top of this page to confirm whether players from your country are currently accepted. Also, be sure to check the dropdown menu on this page or the deposit and withdrawal options in the cashier to be sure you will be able to deposit and enjoy using the convenient withdrawal methods.

There are no hidden or “gotcha” terms but all bonuses come with conditions so be sure to follow the max bet rules, etc., when playing with bonus funds.

Software and Games

Most players today seem to prefer instant-play browser-based games or instant-play on a hand held device. Golden Euro makes it easy to jump right in if that’s how you prefer to play and the games are available in demo mode right from the lobby with no need to sign up or register an account. The maths, mechanics, pay tables, return to player percentages (RTP) and game volatility are exactly the same whether you are playing for real money or fun money.

No download or app is needed to play, your native browser on any device connected to the internet will do just fine.

Those who prefer to use a download client (PC only) will find a link at the bottom of all the web pages to download the RTG platform. One of the advantages to this environment is that nearly 100% of all the games created by RTG studios including Dynamite, RTGAsia, and SpinLogic are found here, easily doubling the number of games available. This may change as more titles are converted to HTML5 for web play, but for now there is a treasure trove of legacy games that can only be found on the download client.

Instant play navigation

The HTML5 framework allows the software to optimize the experience for whatever sort of device you are using. The idea is to sacrifice nothing in terms of quality while scaling and orienting the interface to perform perfectly on the player’s end. The same menu items appear on any sized screen but may be accessed or re-arranged slightly differently to make the individual experience the best possible.

The layout here offers game type categories with further choice refinements as you drill down to the particular game or type of game you want to play.

  • Table games
  • Slots
  • Progressives
  • Video poker
  • Specialty

Table games are first broken down into Caribbean poker and 21 games like SUit’Em Up or standard blackjack. Choosing “All” also brings up Tri Card Poker. Some of the titles are found in more than one category, such as Caribbean Draw, Hold’EM, and Stud which also appear in the Progressives category.

The slots library can be sorted and filtered in several different ways. Of course, you can just open the suite and choose from among the titles listed - but you can also go deeper and filter out anything except: 6-reel; 5-reel; 3-reel, or 4-reel games as well as to choose for certain qualities like bonus rounds or progressives.

The Real Series video slots almost all offer a random jackpot, and those locally fed prizes are, indeed, progressive jackpots. However, those jackpots are usually seeded at $1,000 after falling to a lucky player. The progressive games category only includes big money games like Caribbean Stud with a 1EUR side bet that can be worth hundreds of thousands, and the network-wide progressive slots with much higher seeds and jackpots approaching and surpassing a million euros.

New slots are released at a rate of at least one per month, but often more frequently. Look for innovative, unique, and popular bonus mechanics and a variety of maths models and themes. 

Some of the new titles revisit legacy Aussie slots like Achilles and Cleopatra’s Gold or even new classics like the highly volatile Asgard that was followed by Asgard Deluxe.

Not all games offer random jackpots. It’s believed by some (anecdotally) that the newer games without local progressives might have higher theoretical return to player percentages (RTP) in the short run based on the belief that randoms contribute to the RTP of the other games. The trouble in confirming or debunking that lies in the fact that almost none of the games list RTP but some pay tables may state: “Random Jackpot contribution is no more than 1.5% of total Return to Player” or something similar. Without baseline RTP data it’s almost a moot point, isn’t it?

The good news is that it’s possible to choose games based on other parameters that may be more important to some players such as the actual current jackpot size as well as the volatility. 

Click the info icon when in game icon view or list view to see the volatility index. You can also sort by name (A-Z/Z-A), the number of lines, or the jackpot amount in the list view.

If that information inspires any strategies for increasing your chances of winning a jackpot or a larger jackpot, awesome! One of the great things about Golden Euro when compared to many run of the mill RTG gaming sites is you know  you’ll be paid and they won’t try to pull some mythical “spirit of the bonus” or “seldom used god clause” to deny your payout as long as you follow the rules. While this is not the only top-tier site on the RTG platform it is one of less than a dozen I wouldn’t worry about getting paid by, regardless of the amount of the win.

Network Progressives

Not all operators are allowed to carry these games, but you will find them here.Most of the progressive jackpots are separate but there are a few pooled games. For Instance, no matter which casino you play at on the platform the JP will be the same for all three Caribbean games because the jackpot is pooled and fed by players at all venues - When Hold’Em goes up a penny anywhere, Stud goes up the same amount everywhere. The same is true for Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold and the Deluxe version of the same game.

Aztec’s Millions (based on the legacy Aztecs Fortune slot) has the potential to go sky high because it is seeded at 1,000,000 euros before the first player takes a spin. Spin Logic’s Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe is another symbol driven progressive jackpot game with a jackpot currently over 1.5m. May we suggest this is not a game you would want to play in demo mode, even though you could. What could be worse for an online gambler than  having no real money in the game and missing a life-changing payout? Not much, we imagine.

Video poker

Look for more than a dozen variants and pay tables in this legendary game. If you played RTG VP in the past and loved the pay tables but weren’t too fond of the interface, we have great news. The Spin Logic iterations have the same pay tables but the HTML5 graphics, sounds, and interface are purely 21st Century quality. No more backing out of the game to change coin size or any other annoying things associated with the first-issue versions of these games.

For those who like to look for the ‘little things’, the unsung glories hiding right below the surface, we’re glad to note that Aces and Eights here uses the 8,5,4,3,2,1 paytable and that translates into an RTP of 99.78% using optimal strategy. You don’t find too many online games worth playing that offer a house edge of a measly 22/100 of 1%.

The Jacks or Better pay table is 9/6 and full-pay at 800:1 when betting all five coins.

In addition to 1-hand versions, the games are also available in 3, 10, and 52-hand play in the download client. This may be updated in the instant play version.

Specialty games

This is where you’ll find roulette, keno, a board game similar to “Snakes and Ladders” and the Asia-centric multiplayer Fish Catch game. More could be added to instant play in the future but as of this writing, the balance of games like bingo, scratch cards, etc., are only found on the download client for PC.

Bonuses and Promotions

When we revisited the site they were offering a 100% match opening offer up to €200. Please keep in mind that these offers can and do change over time, so be sure to see the dynamically updated information on this page, or visit the website for up to the minute offers.

In addition to the welcome offer which almost always comes with a follow-up, we see monthly, weekly,, and daily offers, cashback (25% 10x playthrough, no max cashout), a Monday rebate, a roulette bonus, and an introduction to their comp points program.

Comps are earned at 1:10 on wagering and redeemable after accumulating 100 points.

The welcome bonus and most subsequent bonuses have a wagering requirement of 30xd+b with free chips etc.,, usually set at 60x or 80xb. There is no max cashout on the welcome bonus ormost other subsequent offers such as daily, weekly, and monthly offers.

Cashback

Many players find this to be the most attractive offer. For one reason, you can claim cash back on all lost clean deposits for the previous 60 days up to €500 (€2000 in lost deposits). The cashback has a 10x wagering requirement and no max cashout. Run the numbers on that for your style of play but please ask a customer care representative if it is allowed before betting over the €10 limit per round as it could be considered as ‘bonus funds’. Terms and conditions do not address this element.

The Monday Rebate Bonus will be found under promotions in your cashier every Monday if you are eligible to claim it. Max bet is stated as €10 on this offer and there is no max cashout.

Roulette bonus

Grab this one while it’s hot if this is your game. Most bonuses can only be used on slots (sometimes keno, bingo, scratch, etc.). Once a month, players can currently grab a 40% match up to €120. The max bet is still 10 euros and the game is weighted at 25% (.25 of each 1 is counted toward wagering). That is a far better deal than 90% of operators offer for the game and of course, there is no max cashout limit on this bonus either.

Since it is a special offer and has special rules, you can only play roulette while the bonus is active. Currency only European roulette is available on instant play but American (00) can be found in the download client. 

Aside: This is another of those ‘little things’. They could have made the doubled house edge American version available on all platforms, but they have sequestered it for those who truly desire to play that version - for whatever reason. In all my research and decades of gambling I have only found one bet you can make on the double Zero table you can’t make on the Euro version - and it’s the worst bet you can possibly make based on the odds, RTP, and house edge. That’s not to sayI haven’t tried a Hail Mary basket bet at the end of a session a few times (0, 00, 1, 2 and 3) but I’m loath to admit it.

Banking and Customer Service

As the name might imply, this is a euro-based casino. If you convert from another currency, you may lose fees. All transactions including gameplay are done EUR. 

Payouts are made to the deposit method whenever possible, but bank wires are also available for withdrawals when you deposit using something like a Paysafecard or some Neosurf products.

Visa, Mastercard, ecoPayz, Skrill, and Neteller are available to most depositors, however, some other regional methods such as Sofort might appear in your cashier depending on your location.

Skrill and other eWallet users should receive payment within 48-72 hours but bank wires can take up to 10 business days, just like anywhere else.

Some fees may apply. If so, they should appear in the cashier prior to the player initiating the transfer. Some international wire transfers may have intermediary bank fees that are beyond the control of the operators.

Customer support is available through live chat and email. You’ll find a blog and a video link in the footer of the pages but these are mostly used for new game announcements. Their Youtube channel is a good place to see sneak peaks of up and coming games before they are announced almost anywhere else. A press release section is also used for announcements and promotions.

Responsible gambling tools are not found in the software and they are behind the times in providing helpful information for players who might experience a problem. For players who gamble within their means they seem to be meeting their goal of “customer satisfaction in a safe, secure fair play gaming environment.”

Pitfalls

  • No responsible gambling tools
  • Single currency (EUR, no BTC)
  • Player pays bank wire fee (€30 on the casino side)
  • Withdrawal limit may be too low from some players (€10,000 Weekly)
  • Random jackpots are subject to max cashout provision of free spins etc (5x bonus)

The Final Word

Golden Euro Casino is a niche online gambling site with a very wide focus - the EUR currency. As RTG/SpinLogic sites go, it functions mechanically just like any other one, has the same games and is instant play or mobile if that’s how you want to play. It also offers the whole legacy catalog of games on the download client. The only thing missing for me is a live dealer component, but I prefer slots anyway.

The major difference is in experience, professionalism, transparency, and especially fairness. Payment processing is done in the UK by Ge Gamma Ltd, Company number 10848693 and the operator’s reputation over the last decade or so - from day one - should give ease to any concerns about being licensed ‘in the Caribbean’. For comparison, you could see how many Malta-licensed sites still generate complaints and then try to find one about this operator.

While the game selection is limited, with the RTG platform being one of the sole remaining ‘single software providers’. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t have all the bases covered with a full suite of classic and modern games for every playstyle. The new releases have been on par or superior to the competition 80% of the time over the last few years, in my opinion.

Meeting the wagering requirements can be difficult but certainly not impossible, and every day of the month sees a new offer with a monthly bonus usually equal to the welcome offer.

For those who don’t like to encumber their own funds mixed with bonus money, the current 25% cashback going up to 60 days in the past on clean deposits is a welcome alternative. While wagering is 10xb, there is no max cashout restriction. A player who averages €10 a day in deposits 5 days a week and has a disastrous month can count on collecting €500 to play every thirty days with no max cashout.

It’s unfortunate they choose to charge a processing fee on bank wires, but international wire transfers come with their own administrative woes and most players probably use eWallets anyway. I don’t mind waiting up to 72 hours to collect from an operator I trust but 10-15 days for any bank wire puts me off. It’s not much better elsewhere and just part of playing online with vouchers I guess.
