Review of Vera&John Casino
Since it launched in 2011, the oddly named Vera&John Casino has been a heavy hitter in the online betting world, securing exclusive sponsorships and really doing a great job of getting its brand out there. I took the opportunity to sit down and test Vera&John, and what I found was one of the better online casinos that I have seen recently.
Software and game selection
Though I am none the wiser as to who Vera or John is, I love the way Vera&John looks, with the casino's choice of bright blue and pink graphics making something memorable. The casino itself is completely web based, meaning that you do not have to download any software in order to play there. It features a huge assortment of more than 1000 games provided by some of the world's best gaming developers such as Microgaming, Net Entertainment, IGT, NextGen, Thunderkick, Yggdrasil, Bally, and Play'n Go. On the downside they also offer games from suppliers that we have strong reason to distrust, namely Betsoft and Pragmatic Play (formerly known as TopGame).
Many of these games are great, with titles such as Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II, Starburst, Jokerizer, and many more finding their way onto Vera&John's roster. While not all of the casino's games are up to that standard, there are literally so many here that I can't imagine ever going through them all. Thankfully the casino has added a free text search box to its layout that allows you to search for games by name, alongside a button that reveals a menu of filters that allows you to narrow down the enormous list of games by their type or publisher.
You will also find many progressive jackpots at Vera&John, with huge prizes able to be won on many video slots as well as a select few table games and video poker titles. The biggest prizes can be found on slots, with Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, Mega Moolah, and Arabian Nights offering the big bickies for the luckiest of punters.
Another great feature at Vera&John is the large amount of table games available. These games are generally Vegas classics with several variations tied to them which alter the rules in order to shake things up. Upon inspecting the casino I found five roulette variations, nine blackjack games, five types of baccarat, and ten different types of poker. There were also five types of video poker.
Banking and customer support
Vera&John has a lot going for it, including a very fast and efficient banking system that quickly moves funds into the casino and back out to your pocket. The selection of financial options isn't very deep, but it is quick and players can see funds paid out in a very fast manner. My test withdrawal was paid to a Neteller account in under 24 hours and I was not asked to provide proof of identification. I would expect to have to provide this at a later stage though, as per Malta's licensing requirements.
A gripe I have is that withdrawals are restricted to a relatively puny €5000 per week. In addition to that, winnings of more than €100,000 may be paid out over a period of 10 monthly instalments. This could be a bit of a downer if you were to hit that big life changing win, but I suppose there are many worse potential problems to have!
Support is available through email, telephone, and instant message, and you can talk to someone in a variety of languages such as English, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and more. There is a contact tab visible to the right at all times on the website. However I found that the live chat support was not available during the time I tested this casino. So I had to submit an enquiry via email which they took around 8 hours to answer.
Security, fairness, and responsible gambling
Your connection to the casino and its gaming servers is encrypted at all times while visiting Vera&John. This ensures that your personal information and private banking details cannot be intercepted by any bad guys while they travel across the internet. This is industry best practice.
The casino's operator is licensed to operate online casinos by both the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. It discloses that it segregates player funds into trust accounts that meet the standards for what the UKGC classifies as "medium" level protection. This is a very good thing because it means that should the casino go out of business it should not be able to use player deposits to pay off its debts.
In terms of game fairness, there is a link to a pdf document that lists the RTP numbers for some of the games on the site but there is not a single consolidated list for all of them which is a shame. Neither does the casino publish audits of its payout statistics. As mentioned above, Vera&John offers games from Betsoft and Pragmatic Play, two companies with dubious reputations that we believe may not be offering fair games. As per usual, we advise all players to avoid all games published by these two companies.
Inside your account section on the website you have access to a number of controls to limit your betting at the casino. This includes setting deposit and wagering limits. There is also the option to temporarily or permanently exclude yourself from the casino should the need arise.
After having spent a considerable amount of time with Vera&John Casino, I am convinced that the casino is a good spot to play. It has a wide range of high quality games, quick payment of withdrawals, and the compliance with the UKGC medium protection levels for player funds is a great thing to see. Unfortunately the decision to offer suspect games from the likes of Betsoft and Pragmatic Play take the shine off an otherwise excellent casino.
Very interesting to me, especially in regards to the coins, which can be exchanged for FS with one deposit. Currently, however, new players from Poland are not accepted there and it is definitely a minus for those who did not manage to set up an account there.
Contact with LC pretty good, about 5 minutes waiting in my case.
Only the proof and the bank statement are enough to verify, although they demanded proof from my face, because they said that several accounts may be related to me, but after sending the photo, they corrected it:
Deposits are the most popular methods, i.e. Skrill, Neteller, Trustly (I praise eg Trustly). Below 50 € payout is the entry in the regulations that we have to pay € 5, it's also a bit of a minus. I do not advise to "pay extra € 20 and pay 50" as each payment has to be turned x1 before payment otherwise the system will withdraw it to your account.
Points that can be exchanged for FS, or money for tables and slots can be obtained by, among others: slots evaluation, evaluation of other users' rooms, deposit payment, account verification (once), room decoration change (once), if our room will be assessed by other users, for sending invitations to friends, recruiting a friend, and paying a friend's deposit.
A very large selection of slots in this of course the most popular NetEnt, and probably from 10 other networks as well calculated.
A small selection of deposit bonuses (only for 1 deposit of 100%), but you can buy a similar package with coins. Often there are any promotions on deposit.
There is another big +, namely after the payment, we play for our own and we can withdraw money until we move the voucher. So let's say that in 1 shot we get 50 €, we pay 50 € + our depot, while the bonus disappears and we are on +

Vera & John is one of my favorite casinos at all.
As i see ,the main review is from 2015 and the negative points as
the bad search function is history...because now the search engine is
one of the best i came across.
For me a well designed search engine is so importend if you have such a huge game library like Vera&John (1044 games)
The webside is well designed and i like the colours they choosed.
New players get 10 free spins (no deposit) on registration.
Then you get a 200% bonus on your first deposit + 100 free spins.
You can choose between 9 different payment-methods
For almost every transaktion you get points which can be exchanged in the shop to free spins,bonus money etc.
As I mentioned above the game collection is overwhelming.
If you are searching for a specific game i am sure you will find it here.
A frendly live chat support makes the package complet.
5 from 5 stars for Vera&John casino
2 CL-Ed, coolsongss
Among my favorites. What i would point out about this V&J is their great loyalty system and their fast payouts. Lets start with the loyalty system: Not only you get points for just logging in, but you can also earn further points by rating games or casino rooms created by other players. Eventually you can redeem your points for freespins or cash (in the end a bit like here at casinolistings ;)). Their payouts take just minutes to ewalttes and are also very fast to bank (max. 1 day). They are also generous giving out freespins offers and its not 5 or 10 spins like at most of the other casinos but 30 or 40. What a casino!
5 out of 5 stars!

Ah, Vera & John used to be one of my favorite casino, but, now I am blocked from NetEnt Slots here 😢
I think that there was a change regarding the country that casinos can serve with NetEnt games.
Over a week or so, many casinos one by one blocked me from NetEnt games.
I am sad, because I felt like NetEnt slots pay best in Vera & John for me 😢
Anyway, they charge quite high fee like $5 for a withdrawal below $50.
Good Luck for your play in Vera & John !!!
It's one of my favorite casino rooms. They have a very huge collection of slots and that's a big advantage. I like this casino loyality program, you always can earn coins for daily logins, casino ratings, for refereing friends. I' have made deposit here maybe only two times, but I have made a lot of cashouts from earned coins! It's really trustworthy casino room. Five stars to Vera.
vera&john casino is one of my top five favourite casinos to play at because they have slots from my favourite game suppliers netent & playNgo as well as microgaming & nextgen.
vera&john always have a slot tournament running with total prize pools as big as £10,000.
i dont usually play in tournaments becoz i think the chances of a low roller like myself winning any prize is little to none but at vera&john they also run smaller prize pool tournaments which i do play in because they attract alot less players. i have won TWICE already, placing 15th out of 20 & winning £25 in a £1000 tournament and placing 19th out of 20 & winning £10 in a £500 tournament. This is awesome considering i have only played in five tournaments so far!!
the best thing about this casino is their unique loyalty program where coins can be earned from doing extra stuff such as rating a slot game and referring a friend. these coins can then be redeemed for free spins, cash bonuses and deposit bonuses at the coin shop.
Vera&johns loyalty program is by far the best loyalty program of any online site becoz unlike most other sites where u can only earn points from logging in, depositing and wagering, here at vera&john u will also earn coins for doing a number of easy tasks such as rating a game (5 coins) playing a game for the 1st time in real money (10 coins) and referring a friend (10 coins). u even get rewarded when a friend you refer signs up (25 coins) and also wen they deposit for the 1st time.
only 70 coins are needed to claim 10 free spins on starburst slot...you can claim the spins with 7 logins coz u get awarded 10 coins for every login....thats how easy it is to get free spins here!!
Another great thing about the loyalty program is that You also get rewarded free cash bonuses and/or spins for every badge that you get. These badges are rewarded when you complete a certain amount of levels. All up there are 50 levels to complete and 9 badges to get.
the only thing i dun like about this casino is that i can only play in GBP and not my currency of aud so even though the min deposit is £10 it works out to be $20 min deposit for me
Apart from that, there is nothing i can fault about this casino and would recommend it to everyone
Oh, this is a wonderful casino.
I just got the withdrawal within 5 mins.
They have a lot of good bonus programs, too.
This is one of the best casinos I have played so far.
After a break of a month, a few days ago I had an event log on this site for a new festive slot machines. It is a Happy Halloween slot, which is to me left a very good impression at the outset. After a few spins I immediately increased the amount to my account for twice, so that after half an hour of playing, I was moved to another of the newer titles NetEnt, which is Sparks slot. There I had a little less luck than the previous slot, so I lost more than half of the money from my account. The adventure ended shortly after playing in the slot, the rest of the money took me Starburst slot, although me sorry that my last penny, I'm not invested in my favorite Blood Suckers slot. Next time i will fix that...

Vera & john casino, an casino with a very great team behind it!
at first, i'm super happy with there unique rewarding system called ''coins'' which u can collect, then head over too there shop and buy something nice for yourself, mostly i took Starburst spins (10) for 70coins because it was easy to get those 70 coins, they don't provide any different promotion's on there website then there welcome bonus, because they send promotion's out per e-mail, depending on your level and activity, you can have an really good offer, or a bit of an less offer! but no worrie's for me they are all good! there support team is really cool and friendly, long time ago they didn't provide Skrill is withdrawal method on there site, only as deposit method, but i had to send an e-mail for a withdrawal Request and they then sended it to my skrill very fast! this changed and skrill is now on there site provided, but with a Fee! and the time i had to send e-mails every withdrawal was without a fee! they also added lots and lots of games since a time ago! which is amazing:) mobile casino works perfectly too, easy to find your games there:) less better part is 40x wagering on all bonuses or spins winnings, bit high so you have to have lots of luck with you! But vera&john is an great and amazing casino!

I played in this casino with small deposits a few times, but couldn't win so far 😢
But, there are some interesting features in this casino.
They give some coins upon your activities in the casino.
The list of activity and its coins is attached as captured file.
This Loyalty program is very good to earn small free spins and free chips.
As I remember, the wagering is 40 x and they set no max withdrawal.
But, I coudn't withdraw so far, anyway 😢
And their Welcome Bonus is like the Second Chance. So, if you win enough with the original deposit, you can withdraw your winnings anytime you want, and, your real money wagers do not contribute to the bonus wagering fulfillment. Personally, I prefer this type of Welcome Bonus, rather than those which hold the entire balance to finish the wagering requirements .
And as rated in the regular review here, I think that this casino is good one.
This casino is getting higher and higher at the ladder of all my casinos, and it has also almost never fallen down. Why is this happening ? Perhaps thanks to the fact, that I have underestimated it (and the difference was very big - difference between the "level" where it actually was, and "level" where I thought it belongs to 🙂 ). First, the games selection - I hope that for you will be enough to say that there is ~10 software providers that are powering this casino with almost any game you could imagine and also much more 🙂
I met this casino via free spins no deposit signup bonus offered by another web page., I claimed it, did not tell even "wait" or anything, These spins did not win me anything that would be enough to even remember that, but I deposited then cash there (even despite the bonus was only 100% match and l consider that that is WEAK for me, and especially, when there are also better bonuses ready to claim)l
I started spinning and Starburst have awarded me with around ~30, that surprised me quite much 🙂
Anyway I played only Dead of Alive again - as I was havind ~40 euro balance schematic, I decided to try a little higher stake here - I have experiened then 3xrevolver also while they went up, or I was very near to 5 wilds again 🙂 but nothing happened and after I switched to another game - Fisticuffs and this game buried me definitely.
But I dont see any reason why this bus rate 3.5/5, with result of 4/5.

Vera and john, john and vera, call this casino how you want, but this is awesome online casino! I did not played this casino for a long time, and when recently decide to play again, that was big surprise for me, they totally change website, add some unique things like experience that you get for playing and other things, and also now there was much more games, including my favorite netent(which was from begin). I played couple of times, and also i like the thing that i was able to buy bonus in shop for points, was not big bonuses, but still something extra is awesome, not need to wait email from support with bonus or anything like this, at vera and john casino i am able to buy bonus myself. I tried withdrawals couple of time, no problems with it, it took just couple of hours, once it even took only 14 minutes and money was paid to my skrill account, of course i am happy to play in such casino. Awesome place, and you can easily put it in top list with other great online casinos! Just visit website and you will like it, register and login and you will earn some experience, make deposits and also get few experience points.

Vera&John online casino is really awesome, and something really interesting and nice. So let's faster start from pluses and minuses for this casino.
+ Very nice games collection, here is presented games from MG, netent, IGT, nextgen, and few others. So i am almost guarantee that it is hard to not find interesting game in this casino.
+ Support. CS at this casino on a very high level, live chat is awesome, i tried it only few times, but everytime get really quick and good reply. I did not test email support, but i am sure everything there is also nice.

+ Bonuses and promotions. Not only reload bonuses and freespins on new games, but also awesome feature in this site, when you collect points for different actions and for playing slots, and can buy deposit bonuses or freespins for this points, and even free cash.

Vera john casino is great example of online casino system. THey had games from different most popular companies and great selection of payment options. Not so long ago they add shop in their casino in this shop possible to buy bonuses free cash freespins and that all for points that points eaerned by playing or by making different moves like log-in or log-out. Also casino has great bonuses because send me usually bonuses and at least once per month i get 100% bonus and many other bonuses. Promotions also here and there is a lot of great promos which help to earn more money in casino. Live chat is great and always help me in my questions verify of my account was done within 12 hours and all payouts request processed with the same time so i never wait long for my withdrawal come to my skrill account.

Hi, i hope you will enjoy my review of vera and john casino. Vera and john casino is an old casino, and i joined them when i saw no deposit bonus promotion on our forum. By from this time, now this casino is much more interesting. Now they had not only net entertaiment games, they also offer play'n'go IGT and nextgen, i like netent and IGT so i play at this csaino from time to time, also they had some bonus points on site, for every thing you made on site you get points, which you can then spend on bonuses on freespins, but i am not very sure about it, because does not read all about it, just told you what i know. I had few withdrawals from vera and john casino, and all of them were paid within 12 hours, this is good speed to ewallet withdrawal, and this is good and safe casino, i am sure with it, because i never see any complaints against this casino. Also interesting to know that vera and john casino accepting bitcoins... Not sure for whom this is interesting tbh, but in case you searching for good and reputable casino which accepts bitcoins, vera and john casino is the best solution for you, this casino is cool!
Hello, vera and john casino was played by me few times, and actually i like this casino. Probably only one thing i did not like, is their name. Not understand who is Vera, who is John, why to call casino this way? Anyway, i played there probably 10 times, and have few withdrawals. I like that they have a lot of slots from different software providers, and i like their bonuses and promotions. Not the best of course, but at least something, because some casinos even do not care to give players some promotions and just wait when you come with money and give it to them. My verification on vera and john casino took around 15 hours, and it was nice and without troubles. So i am playing there sometime, but nothing really special, just another good netent casino, i think there are a lot of good netent casinos.
Support: I used only live chat, and they everytime was online and helpful.
Withdrawals: Usually paid under 24 hours. In 90% cases a bit faster, which is also nice.
Software: Never had bad experience with a slots.
Vera and John receive 4 stars, they a bit better than just average casino, but still have a lot of work if they want to be rated with 5 stars.
Take care at this casino
bad service, it does not respond to e-mail, and does not pay
Well, i'm a customer from VeraJohn casino. Never won anything here so i cannot say anything about the time frame from the withdrawals.
They have a good variety of slots, from netent, igt, microgaming, betsoft, etc,.. and the site is very users friendly.
However if you're thinking in creating an account at this casino, be advised that verajohn only have 3 deposit methods and 1 (OMG, this is incredible) withdrawal method. You can deposit by credit card, neteller and moneybokers but you can ONLY cashout by neteller. What a big FAIL!!!!
