Review of Bob Casino
When you think of Bob Marley, you often think of something green, but it most probably isn't cash. Apparently the operator of Bob Casino wants to change that perception. Here we have a Marley inspired online betting site, complete with the disclaimer that "Bob Casino was named with no reference to Bob Marley intended". Which of course raises the question that if none was intended why would you feel the need to deny it? Hmmm... anyway I took it for a spin to see if it reached high standards.
Software and game selection
Bob Casino uses the popular SoftSwiss gaming platform to power its website. This means that it features hundreds of games from a wide variety of developers, all served in browser with no software installation required. The design of the site itself is pretty straightforward, as you can sort through an array of slots and table games quite easily and there is a text search bar that finds specific games by name as well. The game selection tabs continue the green theme by featuring icons such as a marijuana leaf, pipe, joints, and a little plastic bag full of the whacky tobaccy, though quite why anyone would associate a ganja pipe with slots, or a couple of spliffs with table games is anyone's guess. It should be noted that the site works well on mobile phones and tablets too.
The game selection at Bob Casino is extensive, as you get games from the likes of Net Entertainment, Microgaming, GameArt, iSoftBet, NextGen Gaming, Thunderkick, Habanero, and many more. As usual, slots are the main offering and Bob offers both modern video slots and classic styled games. The selection is hefty, with almost 800 slots on offer. A lot of the major games you'd expect are here, save for progressive jackpots, which are very limited.
Table games can also be found although the variety is relatively low, with only Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat available for play. The same can be said for video poker. A good sign though is the availability of live dealer games, which let you get in on webcasted versions of blackjack, roulette, and baccarat.
If there's a downside here, its that the casino is yet another offering games from both BetSoft and Pragmatic Play, the former notorious after we busted them running unwinnable jackpot games, and the latter better known for its awful reputation earned under its previous name of TopGame. As per usual, we warn players to avoid all games from these two providers, no matter where you are playing.
Banking and customer support
The banking system at Bob Casino is similar to all other SoftSwiss casinos, and that is a good thing in most respects. Players can deposit in a number of different currencies, as well as Bitcoin. As per usual, you can't convert between these currencies and/or Bitcoin within the casino and not all games are available for Bitcoin play, so sometimes you may be forced to run two separate balances at the casino if you want to play specific games. Withdrawals are processed as quickly as a few minutes if you are using an automated method such as Skrill or Bitcoin. There are limits on daily withdrawals of €4000, and a total monthly payout limit of €40,000.
However one major drawback to this casino is that they charge a 2.5% fee on every single deposit method aside from Bitcoin which is set to 0.2%. They call it "Bob's Commission" and write a page of nonsensical text to try to justify it. But frankly when other casinos running the exact same games on the exact same platform aren't charging it, it seems to me that Bob is shooting himself in the foot with this policy. There are daily, weekly, and monthly withdrawal limits in place, though they do not apply to progressive jackpot winnings which are paid in full in one lump sum.
Customer support can be reached via live chat and email, but unfortunately not via phone. The chat team did respond to my messages quite quickly, and the reps claim that support is available around the clock, so getting assistance shouldn't be an issue.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
Bob Casino protects player information using regular industrial grade SSL encryption. This is standard nowadays, which is just as it should be on a site that handles your personal and financial information. If you're unaware, encryption is important because it scrambles your data while in transit to and from the casino, keeping it out of the hands of criminals.
Fairness is a bit of a thornier subject for this casino, as there is little information on the subject to be found. The site has a gaming license in Curacao which, as we have stressed many times before, is more or less meaningless. This is because the jurisdiction collects licensing fees from just about anyone who applies and doesn't enforce any gambling rules on its operators. There are no audits or payout reports to vouch for the fairness of most of the games, though some developers disclose the theoretical RTP numbers in game, while others such as SoftSwiss offer a provably fair cryptographic checking function that can be used to validate that the game results are random and have not been tampered with.
Responsible gaming information is difficult to find at Bob Casino, with the only mention of it found three quarters of the way down the terms and conditions page. On a more positive note, the SoftSwiss platform allows you to set limits on your gaming through your account settings page once you are logged in. Through this page you can set daily or weekly deposit and loss limits, as well as maximum bet limits. If you would like to self exclude from the casino you need to contact the support crew and make a request.
Bob's marijuana themed casino tries to be clever and maybe even a bit funny, but ultimately I didn't really feel the buzz at this casino. On the one hand you have a great library of games and quick payouts, while on the other they have a fee on all deposits that equivalent casinos don't charge, some outright dodgy game suppliers, and a weak license. This makes Bob Casino more or less average, and certainly not a place I'd consider to be my main joint.
I have been playing at Bob Casino for a few years. with three deposits I won only once. my withdrawal was processed the same day I made my withdrawal request because my account has already been verified.
at Bob casino there are a lot of games, this is the case of all Direx NV casinos. support is friendly and always available. nothing negative to say.
Similar to its sister site another DirexNV site with top providers fast payouts and very quick verification on all documents witout any hassle whatsoever so was happy with that
Decent casino with a wide variety of payment and withdrawal methods. Mobile app would be a great addition to Bob casino.
recently i played so many direx n.v casinos, because there we can find and playing a hundreds of slots games, and bob casino be the next sites for me, by taking the welcome pack 100% + freespin, i just not interest with the casino by taking fees to deposit and withdraw, but actually im enjoy when play with bobcasino, software was running excellent, easy to navigate and they have so many options for payment, easy to verifyng account, and they are so fast to withdraw our money, as i remember they will sent the money less than 10 minutes(verified account), that was amazing..good luck

I'm not very happy with this casino, if it was not for the fact that I paid out a little, I would have squeaked them off altogether. After making the depo with the bonus code, it was not added to the machine. Luckily, CS added from his hand.
Then Im annoyed ... I was because Netent did not work and I wanted to rotate the bonus on NetEnt games. CS said that everything was OK for them, I tried everything and nothing, in the end I sent them a screen which pops up when I launch Netent slots, it suddenly dawned on them: "we have technical problems" Little consolation because I have already broken half. In the end, the netent started but after an hour the same and finally lost everything without playing what I wanted. For the 1st deposit there is still 4x for 25 free spins for 4 days and I had to ask for CS for each. Netent continued to fail only after 2 days he acted normally and then from the third free spins I managed to turn and withdraw.
Bob Casino is one of the most popular casinos at the moment i believe. I dont remember it right but i think that it was recently nominated or even won award of the best new casino.
So i am a regular depositor there and was happy from my first try because slots there hot and i wagered bonus and asked for withdrawal. Documents were approved very fast and money sent to my skrill account too. Next withdrawals were payed in time as well.
Also Bob can offer great bonuses. It has attractive welcome package for the first 3 deposits but also you can expect weekly bonuses every week. So it's good place for bonus hunters and also for everyone else because it has slots from the 20 providers including all most popular like Netent, Microgaming, Amatic... The only minus from my perspective is because they dont have PlaynGo slots because i adore them:)
Support i think works 24/7 because when i was need for them they always were here. And support agents always was polite and friendly.
So in conclusion i can say that everything is good in this casino and i can recommend to play at Bob 🙂

I recently registered at this casino. Which offers Bitcoin as a currency. There are quite a few slots and tournaments to choose from..and should you wish there is also a Live Casino and Table Games.
They offer a Rewards program, which allows you to play and accumulate points. If you reach a specific level / levels you can claim either free spins or / and a bonus.
When registering at the casino I did get free spins and a bonus but this did not go to well. I did wager the bonus but once wagered it went pear shaped.
I am not sure if I will continue playing here. There are many other Bitcoin casinos that do pay quite well.

I registered at the bob casino last month, I see this site is ordinary, incomplete microgaming game on mobile site. but they have good promotion for first deposit. ok, no problem..
Next day I want to made a deposit funds but I lose interest because they charge 2.5 of my deposit. I think it's a bad idea, that I not played already minus. maybe i will play there if they remove fees for the deposit.

I registred at Bob Casino a few months back to take advantage of the free spin no deposit bonus , which i did not manage to get any decent wins from so with the limited bankroll I could not explore many of the slots on offer, did find the selection of slots and games very broad and the multiple providers that this casino offers makes it a certainty that every players tastes should be catered for , the layout is is well done and easy to navigate all in all a nice addition to online casino world

Bob Casino has confirmed that Indonesians can't claim the no deposit bonuses but deposit bonuses should be fine. Please PM me with the email address you used to register at Bob if you would like them to look into why the deposit bonus was not available to you.
I've updated the information on the no deposit bonus and have given you 5 CLChips for picking up that bug.
I was a bit disappointed with the bob casino, I thought that the deposit bonus they gave was for all the members, when I tried to play with them a few months ago it turns out my country is not included in promotion section, so I have to play without bonus, I try with $ 75 , there is no good win there, all games are very difficult, not as usual, but maybe it was a bad day for me, after I lost my money out all, I tried to go to livechat to ask for a little bonus from my defeat, and very they refuse fine, yes I think just enough to play with them, they are stingy

I joined up at this casino today for a few reasons. One being that they accept Aussie players, two that we can play in AUD, three that they accept Ecopayz and offer fast/instant withdrawals but mainly because they have a very very large library of games that dont block us Aussies out.
I didn't accept any bonuses even though there is a freespin bonus on joining but Im allergic to wagering commitments and prefer to see what my real money would play from the get go. I feel this way you get a better idea of what to expect as opposed to being lured with false hope on freebies.
I deposited $50 and even though I did not have a win worthy of withdrawing, I got a nice long play out of my money with many games I had never seen/played before. The fun was in trying out all the new games and yes I had some good runs on them which is encouragement for me to return to this casino knowing that there's a chance for some good wins and fair play for my money here.
The overall layout of this casino is user friendly and even though I for the life of me cannot see the relationship of dope smoking Bob to gambling I guess its just a skin at the end of the day. I'm hoping when I next return he will be off his head and let me have a good win LOL.
I will be sure to let you all know if and when it happens.

I discovered Bob casino a few months ago and took their no deposit bonus. The bonus was only 10 free spins on Aztec Secrets slot, but I triggered free spins feature and ended up with 13 eur balance. I had to wager it 40x I think (or more, but not less) and after playing for many hours, I managed to meet the wagering requirements. I had to verify my account with a note and a photo and it was a bit hard. My images were rejected twice but after a long conversation with their support team I managed to understand the issue with them and uploaded new ones. They got approved in less than an hour. I had also deposited minimum to verify my ewallet and after requesting withdrawal, I got it in an hour. I have played there a few more times and I really like them, they have live chat, many games and withdrawal was fast.
