Review of 18bet Casino
Opening its virtual doors in 2012, 18bet is a relatively new online gambling site that caters to casino players as well as sports bettors. As far as the casino side of things go, 18bet offers both live and RNG games which are provided by Microgaming's Quickfire catalogue, with all games playable instantly in your browser window.
Software and game selection
There seems to be an almost endless supply of good quality casinos opening up that offer the Microgaming Quickfire platform and 18bet is no different in that respect. You can choose from a couple hundred slot machines including all of Microgaming's recent big name releases such as Playboy, The Dark Knight, Avalon II and Terminator II. Each game is played in your browser window which means that there is no software to download and install, and the games can all be played on a Mac as well as a PC running Windows. In addition, selected games are available to be played via your mobile phone or tablet device such as an iPad.
If slot machines aren't your thing, there is an extensive collection of table games to choose from. Blackjack players in particular are spoilt for choice with many different rule variations on offer including Vegas, Atlantic City, and European rules. Baccarat, Craps, European Roulette, and Caribbean Stud are among the other table games available. There are also live dealer tables for Blackjack, Baccarat, and Roulette players. Video Poker players are completely out of luck here though as there are none of these games on the site at all, which is a puzzling omission.
18bet has the usual set of progressive jackpots that are common to most Quickfire casinos, including Microgaming's flagship Mega Moolah jackpot that can be won while playing any of the Mega Moolah series of games, along with the progressive Dark Knight game. You can see the current jackpot values at the bottom of this review.
Banking and security
The deposit and withdrawal options at 18bet are not extensive, but they do have major credit cards and common e-wallets covered. We recommend a Neteller or Skrill account when playing at online casinos as the vast majority, including 18bet, accept either without issue. 18bet's currency support is one of the best I have seen, with the casino allowing players to deposit and play in 19 different currencies. This means that you don't have to factor in currency conversion costs to your deposits and withdrawals. Customers from Asian countries are particularly well supported, assuming they speak English of course, as the casino only operates in the one language.
When withdrawing from your account you can expect to have to supply identity verification documents, as I was asked on my first withdrawal. The casino quotes 48 hours for withdrawals to be processed but in a pleasant surprise I had my money back in my Neteller account in under 12 hours. I was disappointed however to see in the terms that the casino enforces a €10,000 monthly withdrawal limit which limits the attraction of this casino to high stakes players.
In terms of security, all transactions between you and the casino servers are encrypted to prevent interception, as is the norm at just about every other online casino. 18bet is licensed in Curacao, which we regard as a weak licensing jurisdiction here at Casino Listings due to the lack of a formal dispute mediation and resolution process. The casino does not publish any audited payout reports, nor does it provide the theoretical RTP numbers for its games. However this is mitigated by the fact that all Quickfire games are the same at every casino that uses them.
Support at 18bet is provided via email and live chat on the website. Unfortunately I never saw the live chat operators online and I suspect that they must operate on European daytime hours only because there are no published hours of operation on the website. In order to test the support I had to send an email enquiry and they answered my question within 6 hours which suggests that perhaps the email support operates at the same time as the live chat operators.
18bet is similar to a lot of other casinos offering Microgaming Quickfire games on the market at the moment. Most of these casinos are reliable places to play and 18bet is no exception. Withdrawals are handled quickly, the games are great, and you have the option of live dealer, mobile casino, and sports betting to give you a bit of variety. While a couple of issues including the monthly withdrawal limits, the lack of video poker, and the intermittent support prevent this from being a truly top tier casino, it is definitely worth a try, especially if you prefer to play in one of the many local currencies supported by 18bet.
I've been a member at 18Bet casino for quite some time now. I originally was interested in them because of their Welcome Bonus offer which I took at the time. While I didn't manage to meet the bonus wagering, I did enjoy them and continued to play there. What I like about them the most is that their game selection is quite big and they have all of my favourite game providers. Also their mobile casino is quite neat and easy to use. I've had some luck and have done a few withdrawals up until now and not once I had any delays or issues. I had a question regarding their bonuses once and their customer support was really kind and helpful. I would like to see a bit more casino bonuses but all in all, I've never had any issues and I think they're a good casino.

I found on one casinos reviews website very low rating for this casino and was afraid to play there anymore. But before i saw these ratings i already was made few deposits with casino bonuses. If i remember it right wagering requirements looked to big for me but bonus was very big, i think 200%. At the casino i was playing Microgaming slots because they didnt have more. Now they have more games providers so of course casino became better. But i never tried sportbook here but lately i started to notice that very often they offer high odds for some games i am interested. But as i said i didnt feel comfortable to play here because of the ratings i saw. But here i see good rating so maybe its safe place to play... I would be thankful if someone could encourage me:)

Thanks Ev_P, this has been updated on our end.
This casino does not allow Australian players.
A few weeks ago I tried to play in 18bet, not so fit to play there, there are some obstacles enough to consider for an online site, when I go in and play on mobile version I feel less good, game supply is not enough, there are some providers that they run but not many games that are generally provided by other casinos, mostly microgaming only that dominates the type of games that can be used.
I also experience a bit of a constraint with 18bet, which is about a bet system that uses currencies other than usd, or euros, in this case I use IDR currency, And what makes me unsuited is their betting system does not change the total amount of bet when I use currency IDR, whereas the comparison between USD and IDR is very far behind, around 1: 13000, and the total maximum bet they provide for me then is only 250 IDR and there is a lower than that, then I tried to play with a small deposit around 260000 IDR, and I get 100% bonus, the total amount is 520000 IDR or in USD about $ 40, but the maximum bet amount available for me is only 250 IDR, whereas I have to complete 30x turnover means I have to complete turnover about 15m only with total bet maximum 250IDR (less than $ 0.01), a little disappointed for me even though in fact they are very good with brand offerings a while trying to play in 18bet, they should also have to change the system about the total amount of bets when they provide many types of currency.
I was surprised when their site provides Indonesian language, and after trying to visit livechat they also use indonesian language, but to make the most recommended deposit with e-wallet because in my opinion easier, to make a deposit via bank tansfer or else quite complicated and less efficient, many other games that they serve like blackjack, baccarat, roulete, and sportsbook, nice and good luck

I register in 18bet and make deposit to claim sign up bonus 100%, good news to me is wagering or turnover just 12x,in many other casinos that apply wagering 30x to 60x, this makes it easier for me to pull my winning money faster without lingering with bonus money,they provide sports bet with Asian odd,im familiar we use football bet in my country.
Thanks for read my review 👍
good and simple sites, fast withdrawals without verification. unfortunately their software often displays error code. it made my filing gone
This casino was launched couple of years ago. Maybe in 2011 or 2012. I was using this site for sports betting only. Later I had tried slots here. They support Microgaming platform. Bad luck, no any solid winning here. Site layout is modern and look pretty good. They offer a lot promotions, but with rollover. They do not accept players from UK now. I think that this casino is average, I'll give 3 stars for it.
Great and very good designed casino,
the already start off, with there great deposits options, and you can already start to play from €10, lot of the well known deposit options are available, and all e-wallet methods are available on there website, minimum withdrawal you can make is €20 and that's also very good, because not everybody can deposit lot of money. 18 bet, provide's players with excellent rewards, such as free spins, free bonuses, and ofcourse a free birthday chip! as i received last birthday very nice since not every casino does this. all there match bonuses are coming with a wagering requirement of 40 times bonus plus deposit, this is quite on the high side, but with lot of luck you can make the wager, or ofcourse deposit without a bonus;) processing of withdrawals happens under 48 hours, mostly i got my withdrawals within 12-18 hours, so that's a pretty solid and fair timeframe. almost all games from Microgaming are on there website, but you can ofcourse also try your luck on Live games! they have a great support team, who's almost always there too help you out! so 18bet is for me and i think more players a great,safe,excellent casino!
PeDrone’s 18bet Casino Review
This online casino using games created by Quickfire. It is operated by Bellona N.V.. For me, the games are not interesting enough for me to be above average and the bonuses are also poor - we begin with negatives here.
This casino offers also only 100% match deposit bonus, but there is much more to choose from (software providers of slot games) and you can also discover a new exclusive offer on the google, so – although the 100% offer is average, it is better than most 100% bonus casinos 🙂.
Deposits and withdrawals
There are many deposit and withdrawal options, as well as it’s expected by such a well-known casino. I deposited by Skrill – naturally, there was no fee, as usual, as well as the transaction time – money appeared on my casino balance immediately after depositing. The deposit amount was 20 euro, bonus another 20, that makes 40 to play. Withdrawal has not appeared, as I was greedy, or maybe thanks to the fact I played very high variance game only 🙂.
Live chat support service is available. Live support representatives are ready to help 24/7, I rate this service great, as well as most of the time when live supp helps you to sucesfully solve your issue 🙂
I played Thunderstruck II 0.30 to 0.90 stakes, but it makes me run down quite quickly.
I cannot recommend this casino explicitly, but nor can I blame it – its just another average and uninteresting casinos, just with an exception that thanks to its title is it 99% of times in “top” 5-10 casinos on each casino listing site 🙂.

18bet casino have only quickfire games(quickfire for me it is microgaming, i know they have some other games, but when it comes to playing this quickfire, i am always choose microgaming games). I really can't say that it is interesting casino. Unfortunately there is nothing created to be interesting. Everything quite regular which all of us saw many times in other casinos. I played two times in this casino, took welcome bonus and second deposit offer. From beginning about support - i did not test. Not live chat, not email. Two times played - no withdrawals at all, because those Thor and Sarah(thunderstruck II and Immortal romance for those who not so crazy about those two slots) just took my money. Pity fact that i even did not unlock any next step in hall of spins in both slots, and wins was very low. But this happens, this is not casino , this is just software and this two slots, they pay or not pay, typical gambling rule. Bonuses are not often, but they do exist, sometimes i get emails from casino which offer me a bonus. But i reject to take this bonuses, because not see why to make deposit here, while there is so many awesome casinos.

18bet online casino i tried three times, with not big deposits, and from these deposits i have some experience that allow me to review this online casino. I'll start from pluses, there is will not be any surprise for you.
+ Software. Casino uses only quickfire games, and it is not possible to have application with games to be downloaded. It is cheaper than buy application, but it is ok, at 18bet casino games not laggy, and loading fast, can be compared to guts casino for example.
+ Customer support(tried only live chat). Unfortunately live chat at this casino working only about 12 hours per day,but luckily my gambling time is similar to their working time, and for me there is no any problem to contact live chat.
+ Withdrawals. I had only one withdrawal, and very good to know that casino even did not ask documents for my 210$ withdrawal request. WD was paid within 24 hours, it is not fastest speed, but very good, i would be happy to get all withdrawals in this time frame.
And one minus here.
- Bonuses and promotions are almost not exist, at least for me, this is sad.
Very good online casino, but not many bonuses, more better to say no any bonuses is not good.

18 bet casino using games from microgaming and it called quickfire version quick fire means that casino did not have download software and you can not install games on your personal computer and therefore you forced to play in your browser or from mobile device but on mobile version of microgaming games there is not so many games. 18 bet casino in my experience is not so bad microgaming brand they have nice and good looking promotions and also send good bonuses to my email quite regular. live chat support is good at this casino but i am really did not know is it works 24/7 like it should work in every casino or my opinion but when i was need to speak with someone from support i was able to do so without any waiting. I played probably 4 or 5 times in this caisno but unfortunately have only one payout request from this casino. Verify of my account take 1 days and it is good speed for microgaming quickfire brand and i get my winnings on skrill account within 3 days this is not very fast compared to others but in my eyes this is good speed. 18 bet casino looks safe and good microgaming casino.

I decide to try 18bet yesterday since review is good, and since casino has really great welcome bonuses 100% on first deposit, 150% on second and 200% on third. I have 20$ on my visa, so decide to try this casino once, why not, when i will have money i will be able to play with better bonus. I speak with live chat, they confirm that i am able take bonus and Belarus is ok here, ok great, i like good MG casinos which can give me bonuses with no problems. I check bonus terms and did not like the WR for bonus, really, x40 deposit + bonus, this means bonux x80, and for my 20$ deposit i get 1600 WR, which is really high by my opinion, even betat has x 60 if i remember correctly, but betat allows early withdrawal while here it is impossible. But who cares, i have 40$ on my balance, and of course i opened Thunderstruck II. I start thinking that i will wait 3 scatters for a long time, like always, but to my surprise 3 spin bring me 3 scatters on first 3 reels 🙂 Unfortunately achievements in every casino different, and i was not able to choose second feature. Feature pays zero(0.00), and i just get money for 3 scatters. Next come bad luck without chances and i lost even not hitting wild storm or another bonus feature. But i will play again of course, i still had 150% and 200% bonuses. But WR should be lowered here.
