Review of Dong Casino

If you're a westerner you may well be snickering at the name of this casino right now, but let me assure you that contrary to what you may be imagining, Dong Casino is in fact an Asian-themed online casino. Depending on how the word is used in Chinese, Dong can mean either the direction East or the owner or boss of a business or place. So now you know and you can stop your smirking! Dong Casino is part of a website that offers casino games, a live casino and sportsbook, both in browser and on your mobile.

Closed for business

This comes as a surprise to us only shortly after reviewing the place but DongCasino management have decided to close the casino down on October 31, 2014. Until that time, the casino will no longer accept new registrations. Existing customers should log in and withdraw their balance or complete any bonus wagering before then.

Game selection at Dong Casino

The casino games at Dong Casino are supplied by the seemingly ever-present Net Entertainment and Microgaming Quickfire catalogues, running on an EveryMatrix platform. If you have played at one of the numerous other casinos that run on these platforms you will know exactly what to expect: high quality games that are all playable in your browser session, no software installation required. Microgaming are one of the pioneers of the online casino industry and have a catalogue of hundreds of games developed over the best part of two decades now. Net Entertainment, while a less experienced developer, are renowned for their high production values and the quality of their games are second to none.

The selection of games is great. You can pick from your favourite licensed slots like Terminator 2, South Park, Jurassic Park, Playboy, or Aliens, or go for well known and loved slots such as Starburst, Jackpot 6000, Dead or Alive, or Thunderstruck II. The casino features games that are "the new hotness" alongside tried and tested games that people have been playing for years and in all, there are over 200 to choose from. Table game fans have plenty to keep their interest at Dong Casino. All the table games, apart from a couple of Microgaming roulette variations, are from the Net Ent Pro Series. These are quite simply the best online table games on the market today and they play as smoothly as they look. You can pick from games such as Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Caribbean Stud Poker, Oasis Poker, Casino Hold'em and Red Dog, among others. There are also video poker machines, scratchcards, and assorted parlour games for you to try your luck at. A smaller number of games are available for play on your mobile device too.

If you prefer your action dealt live, Dong Casino offers multiple live Roulette and Blackjack tables that are broadcast from studios run by Net Entertainment. These tables cater to both the low and high rollers, with table limits ranging from as low as €1 right up to the nosebleed stakes of €75,000 a spin of the roulette wheel and €5000 a hand on blackjack.

Progressive jackpot players have many choices too, with Microgaming's massive Mega Moolah and Dark Knight jackpot currently the largest. The Major Millions and King Cashalot jackpots also present significant life-changing opportunities. However I was disappointed to see that the casino does not offer Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, or any of the other large Net Entertainment jackpots. There are several small Net Ent jackpots that are shared among several casinos that run on the OddsMatrix platform but the big fish are missing here.

Banking and customer support options

The banking section at Dong Casino is one of the more prolific that I have ever come across. There are so many ways that you can deposit and withdraw your money from this casino that I won't bother pointing any out. Suffice to say that they have you covered with either a credit card, e-wallet, or local bank transfer method (see full list on the right). Deposits are handled instantly while your first withdrawal is subject to a standard identity verification procedure. During my test of the casino I made two withdrawals, both to a Neteller account. The first took a total of 3 days as they asked for copies of my documents. The second withdrawal was paid in around 24 hours.

In terms of support, the casino caters to customers from a wide variety of countries and is translated into several languages including Chinese, Taiwanese and Vietnamese. Support is handled via live chat and email, but to my disappointment I found that the live chat was often unavailable which left me the only option of submitting a support request and waiting for a response via email which invariably came the next day. The casino does not publish its hours of live chat operation and I was checking during the afternoon for a visitor from Hong Kong or Vietnam, which I figured would be prime time for the casino.

Security and fairness

Once you login to your account at Dong Casino, all communication with the casino website is encrypted using industry standard SSL encryption. This ensures that you financial transactions and gameplay are secure, and that they cannot be eavesdropped on by anyone nefarious. In terms of game fairness, both Net Entertainment and Microgaming have their random number generators independently audited to assure you that the results of their games are random. The Net Ent games all publish their theoretical RTP numbers in the game help files, which you can access by clicking the question mark help icon in game. There are no RTP numbers published for the Microgaming games, however these numbers are published elsewhere and we know for a fact that their games are the same wherever they are deployed. All in all you can feel safe that you are getting a fair game at Dong Casino.

Conclusion

Dong Casino is yet another good Net Entertainment / Quickfire casino. Apart from the excellent game selection, the language, currency, and banking support is second to none, and you also have the option of betting on sports there too. The lack of 24/7 live chat support is a disappointment though, as is the fact that Net Entertainment's headline jackpots are not available for play. If you can live with those minor issues then I have no other reservations in recommending Dong Casino as a good place to play.

Dong casino it is online casino oriented for asian markets, but of course such guy like me already know about this casino, because i am usually tried many casinos that have games from netent and quickfire, and at dong casino i was able to get welcome bonus from this casino. Actually remembering dafa casino i think asian brand is very good online casinos, and at least they did good services to players.
I played at this casino only once, because casinos with such software is almost everywhere nowadays, and it is not hard to find 2-3 awesome places and spent all money there, to earn loyalty and get then better bonuses. But dong casino offer 100% bonus, so i take it with 25 euros deposit, bonus was credited to my account without any problems, and i have started playing with 50 euros. I decide to play netent games, but unfortunately like always chance to win big money destroy my head, and i choose slot with highest possible variance at netent portfolio - dead or alive. I played about a hour, because doa spinning not very fast, had about 5-6 freespins features, but no any luck to collect 5 wilds or 5 scatters, and i finish with zero.
4 stars, this casino looks good.
IMPORTANT: CL team, your 'visit casino' button did not work here, i click it, and then page show me error. Correct please.

It appears that perhaps the name wasn't so popular after all as we just received an email saying that the owners have decided to shut it down on October 31.

I am not quite sure it is because of the casino name. There is a slight misunderstanding as to the meaning of "dong" as interrupted by American English. I do believe the word incorrectly suggested here is "dung" that is referred to cow manure. Dong is the sound of a bell!

Players who do hold an account at Dong Casino are being referred to Jetbull Casino. Any questions about your account or balance can be answered by support at Jetbull.

Wow long time no see Usne! Great to see you are well!

In fact, dong is slang for a body part that only males have. But in this Asian context its either the direction East, or the name of a boss or employer.

Anyway, not a bad result as Jetbull is a pretty good casino, so players transferred there should be in good shape.
