Review of Wild Tornado Casino
Tornadoes are something that's both captivating and terrifying at the same time, and I say that as someone who has been subjected to tornado activity a few times. Recently I had a tornado pass a few miles south of my house and the weather surrounding it got pretty wild, with wind blowing, hail falling, and a massive amount of rain. This operator of Wild Tornado Casino has tried to somehow link the captivating nature of the storm phenomenon with a casino, which I'm not sure is the most obvious connection. So, does it sweep in a great betting experience, or does it blow?
Software and game selection
Wild Tornado Casino uses a browser based platform called SoftSwiss to power its services. Everything runs directly in your browser, meaning that you don't have to download any extra software or plugins to get going. SoftSwiss casinos are well known for mixing traditional casino suppliers that run using regular currency such as Net Entertainment, Microgaming, and Play'n Go with more esoteric suppliers that offer Bitcoin denominated games like Belatra, Amatic, and Endorphina. Not all the games are playable with Bitcoin though so you will find your options somewhat restricted if you are looking for cryptocurrency only play. The platform itself is well-developed, even if it doesn't have much of a tornado theme apart than the casino's logo. Mobile play is available, with most of the games on the platform offered to those with smartphones or tablets.
There are hundreds of different slot machines to choose from at Wild Tornado, and the site's interface makes it easy to browse and search for specific titles. You can break down games by genre, and if you're looking for a particular game, you can do so quickly via a search box. There are a ton of different themes and features present in those games, and there is more than enough choice there to keep even fussy slots players happy.
For those who like to play the progressive jackpots, there are a few that may be played. However I was disappointed to find that the majority of the jackpot games are from Betsoft, a supplier that we have blacklisted for offering jackpots that could not be won, and refusing to pay out a jackpot in accordance with the game's paytable. This is not the only rogue supplier whose games are present at this casino: you can add Pragmatic Play to that list too. As usual we recommend that you steer clear of any and all games published by suppliers that we have blacklisted.
There are also table games and video poker machines that can be played, but the selection is nowhere near as diverse. I counted blackjack, roulette, baccarat, Hi-Lo, and Caribbean Stud for tables, with several variations present to boost numbers. There is a large selection of video poker machines available for play too.
Banking and customer support
The banking system at Wild Tornado is good, as it supports deposits through credit card, eWallet, and Bitcoin. As per usual with SoftSwiss casinos, you have separate balances for each currency and you can switch between them as you play, depending on the game supplier (some won't let you play in Bitcoin for instance). Withdrawal options include bank wire, eWallet, credit card, and Bitcoin. Bitcoin withdrawals are recommended as the payout times are as quick as a few minutes. There is a €4,000 max withdrawal per transaction, but you can queue up multiple transactions at one time. Probably the only other notable point about the withdrawal system is that you need to withdraw a minimum of at least €50 if using regular currency.
The customer support team can be reached through live chat and email. Using the chat function, the support reached out to me instantly, and getting responses only took seconds. The team is able to answer the various banking and bonus questions you throw their way, making them acceptable in my eyes. For anything more complex you can expect to have to go through email support channels to reach a more senior employee.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
Wild Tornado uses standard SSL encryption to help protect your information from being poached by hackers. It's vital that you only play at casinos that feature encryption, as it ensures that your communication, gameplay, and personal information stays private as you play and transact at the casino.
The site holds a gaming license from Antillephone Curacao via the operating company Direx NV. However this doesn't mean much as Curacao is a "regulator" in name only and doesn't offer anything in terms of support for players with disputes, nor action against rogue operators. It is the license a casino gets when it only wants the appearance of being licensed as opposed to being properly regulated.
The casino does not publish any audits of the fairness of its games, nor does it publish payout numbers, either theoretical or actual. That said it does aggregate its games from a variety of different suppliers, the vast majority of which are independently audited and tested. However as I have noted above there are a couple of suppliers in there that we regard with extreme skepticism, namely Betsoft and Pragmatic Play, so avoid their games at all costs just like you should at any other casino. Some of the games, notably those published by bGaming which is the in house SoftSwiss developed brand, have a "provably fair" software mechanism that allows you to cryptographically check that the results of a game were not tampered with by the casino.
There is a responsible gaming page at Wild Tornado and they do a good job of explaining the different controls you can place on your account should you need them. There are deposit limits, loss limits, wagering limits, and self-exclusion controls available inside your account settings. Links to outside counseling groups like GamCare and Gamblers Anonymous are also included.
All-in-all, Wild Tornado Casino is very similar to other SoftSwiss casinos that I have played at, and I regard that as a good thing for the most part. It has a huge variety of games, and serves as a good option for those of you who want to gamble wholly with Bitcoin without exchanging it back and forth for fiat currency. While I never like seeing Pragmatic Play or Betsoft games in a library, the site is a decent option provided you avoid those suppliers' games.
I have played at this casino for several years. at the beginning I sometimes made withdrawals that did not exceed 120 euros, but after a win of 400 euros I was informed by the casino support thant i not eligible for any deposit bonuses because i have taken advantage of offers.
I continued to play at this casino without bonus since it is a good casino with good support and I never found any problems with my withdrawals. also note that the verification of documents is fast.

The Casino is nice, fast, secure and highly recommended.
Nice that they accept bitcoin and very patient customer service help when I'm having trouble. In addition they also implemented the withdrawal very quickly without verification.
Their flaws are a fee on every transaction deposit which in my opinion is too large.

Wild Tornado Casino belongs to the Direx group of N.V. and like every casino in this group has a lot of games, different providers which of course is a huge plus. The first deposit bonus from which I personally used was a bonus of 100% up to 200 euro plus 50 free spins on Starburst, Dragon Kingdom or Aztec Magic. The minimum deposit to activate the bonus and free spins is 20 euros. Verification of the standard account, i.e. proof plus pdf from the bank and screen confirming the method of payment, in my case it was skrill. The verification within 12 hours and immediately after the verification I received the money, and therefore quite quickly, which is undoubtedly a big plus. Generally, this is my favorite casino from the Direx N.V. and certainly I can recommend this casino to everyone with a clear conscience.

Wild Tornado casino is a place I have been playing for a while now. They are quite generous when it comes to awarding with bonuses to active players and they always come with decent wagering requirements, usually not more than 40x bonus amount. Also the payout times are fast, after I verified my account by sending the usual info- utility bill and id proof, the withdrawal takes just a few hours to get to my ewallet. Not only that, but I also enjoy their game library and for the most part I enjoy playing on my phone, and so far the mobile casino has been very pleasing- no lagging and good quality of games. Also their casino customer support is friendly and easy to reach, so I really like them.
An excellent casino with fast payout benefits, customer support is efficient and welcoming. I had two deposits last year with them. I hope they will remain one of the trusted partners over the next few years. Recommendation for all serious players.

Wild Tornado is DirexNV group casino and usually i like casinos from them. So i was happy when this casino started to operate. They have great welcome pack and many games i like. Live chat isnt the fastest one but at least it's live chat in practice not only in theory:)
I made my first deposit of 20 euros with welcome bonus but lost it so i made another deposit of twenty and that time after wagering i finished with 200eur. Asked for withdrawal and was expecting to get my funds very fast but it was unexpected surprise that i got them just after 3 days. But anyway it wasnt so bad that i would stop playing because of this. Also they were reminding about them with the no deposit bonuses.
But one day i was upset. O have got email about nice bonus and when was trying to enter their website i have got message that Russia is restricted country at their casino. First at all i am not from Russia so it was total absurd. I thought it's temporary problem so didnt take actions. Next day it was the same so i contacted them via live chat and after few hours that problem was solved. I didnt ask them whats happened but it was very strange. After this i didnt have problems there but few days ago i was trying to login and system said that players from Lithuania not welcome anymore:) Ok, i thought its good bye. And today once again everything is ok and players from my country can play there:) So that kind of things i dont accept. I cant trust them. What if i will have funds and one day i will not be able to login to my account?
So in conclusion, probably it's good casino, i like their promotions, games, website in general but that kind of technical problems stole me from their customers list. So just 3 stars from me.
