Casino Adrenaline is an online casino established in 2014 that runs on a multi-software platform offering games from a variety of suppliers. It is operated by Danguad Ltd and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curaçao. Last updated: November 22, 2018.
The bet is in, the reels are spinning and you are anticipating seeing a big payout coming as you already have three wild symbols locked in place. The adrenaline is pumping through you, and you can feel your heart pounding as the fifth reel winds down to a stop. This is the feeling that many punters love when playing a casino game, as the rush of lining up a huge win can only be topped by one or two things in life. So does Casino Adrenaline live up to its heart-pounding moniker?
Casino Adrenaline has a bold and useful design, and offers hundreds of games from developers such as 1x2 Gaming, Microgaming, Oryx, and Net Entertainment. The design is intuitive and allows players to search for and play games directly through a web browser. The registration process is simple, and I was set up and ready to play in less than three minutes. I also was able to log into the casino via my smartphone, using Casino Adrenaline's mobile site to play a selection of games.
The game library at Casino Adrenaline is very expansive, with nearly 500 games spread out among slots, table games, video poker, lottery, and parlour games. The slot library is massive, and I was quickly able to locate all of the games using the casino's search function directly on the main page. There is a healthy selection of games here, including several progressive jackpots from Microgaming. Net Entertainment games are also present, but progressive jackpot titles such as Mega Fortune and Cosmic Fortune are absent, likely due to a lack of a licensing deal between Casino Adrenaline and the Swedish betting firm. Sadly the casino still offers games from Betsoft despite our public report that calls into question the fairness of their games.
There are nearly 50 table games on offer at Casino Adrenaline, and the games range from the standard Vegas titles one would expect from a land casino all the way to variations that bring some small rule changes to games you may otherwise think you know everything about. The casino also utilises the Quickfire live dealer platform, giving players access to a solid live dealer experience that features high definition graphics and good interaction with dealers. Video poker, lottery, and parlour games are all accounted for as well, giving Casino Adrenaline one of the more robust gaming libraries that I have seen.
Deposit options at Casino Adrenaline are decent, with a mix of well known methods including credit cards, e-wallets, and bank transfers for most players around the world. The withdrawal options consist of Visa, Neteller, Skrill, and bank transfers. My test withdrawal to a Skrill account was paid within 48 hours of confirmation that my identification documents were approved (3 days in all). This is a reasonable speed, though with so many other casinos offering essentially the same games, I think Adrenaline needs to improve this to stay competitive.
The casino has tiny payment limits of a maximum of €2000 per week and €5000 per month. I contacted the live chat support and asked if this policy applied to progressive jackpot wins and was told, "If you win a progressive jackpot, withdrawal limits are subject to discussion with VIP management." That answer is clear as mud, so my rule of thumb is to assume the worst. Players looking to strike it big via the progressive games may want to look elsewhere until the casino clearly clarifies this with a concrete answer in their terms and conditions.
One disturbing clause that I found in the casino's terms and conditions is this poorly translated one that I think seeks to allow the casino to confiscate your winnings, even if they have difficulty or delays in paying you. This is clearly unacceptable.
12.10. Shall winnings made with the help of bonus not be successfully withdrawn within 45 days, from the first withdrawal request, they will be voided.
Customer Support is available through both email and instant chat, and I found the staff quick to respond, although as you can no doubt tell, I wish that the answer to my jackpot question was answered more definitively.
Casino Adrenaline secures all transmissions using a standard SSL encrypted connection. This ensures that your communication, gameplay, and financial transactions are private. The casino follows modern KYC (know your customer) procedures, so it requires identities to be verified via documentation before processing withdrawals.
The casino is sub-licensed to operate in Curacao, which is regarded by Casino Listings as a weak licensing jurisdiction that does little to help players in the event of a dispute with the casino. There are no independent audits or certifications from groups such as eCOGRA on display at Casino Adrenaline, nor do they publish a consolidated list of the RTP numbers for their games, though some of their games such as Net Entertainment display RTP numbers in game. I expect to see a higher standard of transparency in this day and age.
Responsible gaming is another point that Casino Adrenaline only touches on, offering links to software to prevent underage betting and to groups that can provide help to those with problem gambling issues. However there are no controls or limits that you can place on your gambling via the account settings. This is disappointing as deposit, wagering, and/or time limit settings have become almost a standard at any decent casino these days.
Casino Adrenaline is a casino that looks great at first glance, and it certainly offers a good selection of games. However when I looked a little deeper I have to confess that I was not completely comfortable with what I found. Small withdrawal limits, confiscation clauses, weak licensing, and the lack of responsible gambling controls do not sit well with me. There are hundreds of similar casinos with an almost identical gaming collection, and I see little to separate this one from the rest.
