Review of Yeti Casino
So er... what do you call a yeti with a six pack? The abdominal snowman. I know, I know, sorry! But really what else can you do but laugh when you see someone attempting to connect the mythological hairy white beast with a casino? It makes no sense at all, but well regarded operator L&L Europe have seen fit to unleash this abominably named casino on us smack in the middle of the European summer.
Software and game selection
Yeti Casino has an interesting look and feel to it, given the giant monster that it's named after. If you never thought you would see a yeti reclining in a hammock on a tropical island while playing slots on his iPad then have I found the site for you! Then again if you have actually thought of that scenario in order to think that you would never see it then I question your sanity. You know what I mean. Anyway the site looks equally good on both desktop and mobile devices, and the layout is friendly and easy to navigate. I had no problem registering an account and depositing, and I was able to find games that I wanted through the genre and search bar in the game area.
There are more than 400 games in the Yeti Casino lineup, with slots from Microgaming, Net Entertainment, and Amatic Industries dotting the virtual halls. Almost all experienced online players will know what to expect from NetEnt and Microgaming games, but some of you may not be so familiar with Amatic. These games are well known and popular in Eastern Europe through their distribution in land based venues. If you are familiar with the games then you will probably love them. If not, you'll find them looking dated in comparison to the latest big budget NetEnt or Microgaming title. The games are all available for instant play directly in your browser, and you can sort the games by video and classic genres. A selection of big-name progressive jackpots are also available, giving you the chance to win the likes of the multi-million Euro Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune, or Arabian Nights prizes.
There are also a healthy number of table games available, with punters able to choose from Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Caribbean poker, and more all available to play. You'll also find an array of variations available, which include sidebets for most of the games listed above. If you're into live dealer games you can find a full selection of webcast games that have stakes starting at just €1 all the way up to a staggering €75,000.
Banking and customer support options
The banking system at Yeti Casino is varied and you can deposit and withdraw through multiple eWallets, credit cards, as well as bank transfers. Consistent with other casinos that I have tested that are run by the same operator, L&L Europe, the payout speeds are impressive. You can expect eWallet withdrawals such as Neteller or Skrill to be paid out within 24 hours, while credit card and other banking can take a couple of days to come through to your account.
There are some minor quibbles here though, especially given the high limit live dealer tables I mentioned earlier. Firstly for those of you that like to claim bonuses, note that you aren't eligible for the sign up bonus if you deposit using Skrill or Neteller. Next there is a €5,000 daily withdrawal limit on winnings, though there is at least some comfort in the fact that this limit does not apply to massive pooled progressive jackpot winnings.
I was pleased to see that the separation and protection of player funds, which the casino is required to disclose as a condition of its UK license, meets the medium standards level set by the UKGC. This means that the money you deposit at the casino is kept in an account that is separated from the operational funds of the casino and, should the casino's operator go out of business, your money would be protected from claim by creditors and paid back to you. This is a cut above the vast majority of casinos that I have evaluated.
The customer support team is available through live chat, email, and telephone. I always test the live chat operators to see their response times and gauge their level of competence. I waited less than a minute for a response and the operator I chatted with was able to answer my basic questions related to bonus terms and the progressive jackpot payout policy. I also asked if the casino was run by yetis and found that, much to my disappointment, there isn't a secret enclave of yetis running a casino from under a mountain in the Himalayas. I don't think they were amused by my stupid question though.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
In terms of data security, Yeti Casino uses the standard SSL encryption found at all reputable sites for the privacy of data communications. This is good, as it scrambles information as it's sent between your computer and the casino's servers, making it unreadable by any outside parties. This encryption also applies to all banking transactions going to and from the site.
Yeti Casino's operator holds gaming licenses to operate online casinos from both the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Both of these are reputable regulators that hold operators accountable for their actions. However the casino does not disclose the RTP percentages for its games, nor does it report actual retrospective payout figures for the casino on a monthly basis.
The casino's responsible gaming policies meet UKGC standards which is a very good thing. This means that there are deposit, wager, and time limit controls that you can place on your own account, and there are also self-exclusion and temporary lockdown options in place. All of this can be accessed within your account settings page while you are logged in to the casino.
Ignoring the crazy name, Yeti Casino is actually a very good online casino. They have a good game library, fast banking, and the terms and conditions I looked through are reasonable and not at all predatory. In addition the operator has earned for itself a good reputation through the trouble free operation of its various other sites over the past few years. There are a few downsides mentioned above, but these issues are pretty minor unless you are amongst the highest of high rollers. You should check this casino out if you're either: A) looking for a fun new casino to play at, or: B) a Bigfoot that doesn't have an online casino that's willing to accept you for who you are.
CMANSON81 you are correct that we have pointed out that Yeti Casino provides a range of options to you as a player to control your finances and limit your play at the casino. This is best practice but it is all a moot point if, as seems to be the case for you, you refused or neglected to use those tools. If you had used the deposit limit tool to restrict your deposits to a certain amount but then were allowed to deposit more than that, then you would have a point.
I'm sorry to be blunt like this, but ultimately it is your responsibility that you deposited more than you should have while not using the deposit limit tools. Judging by this and your other posts here, you clearly you have a very serious gambling problem and you need to stop. Looking for excuses and people to blame isn't going to help. Seek professional help immediately.

reviewing the page about this casino one part stood out
The casino's responsible gaming policies meet UKGC standards which is a very good thing.

define standard is standard allowing players to do deposit after deposit after deposit or only once they lost a fortune , Yeti will then verify the player and if discrepencies lock the account and no refunds
gambling addicts are allowed to play and only once they have lost thousand im sorry no refunds account locked etc
this matter needs to be dealt with by both the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority.
as YETI casino is far behind up to standard
Having mentioned many a time should a online casino short pay me for some reason and or not provide a good reason for doing so I leave play and deposit elsewhere. 💩
There are some great casino's other than L&LGroup casino''s in the market currently.😀
Requested account be locked due to gambling addiction,
requested a refund for the two R80.00 deposits as I was never verified as a new depositing player
so in all essence said as I made two deposits and after the first should have been verified so what would be fair is to refund half the R160 back to me...
DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU HAVE A GAMBLING PROBLEM,
OR UNDER THE AGE OF 18
OR LOOKING FOR A SITE TO DO FRAUDELNT ACTIVITIES ON THEN
YETI CASINO IS THE PLACE... YOU ARE ABLE TO DEPOSIT UP TO 2300 EUROS BEFORE THEY DO VERIFICATION,
However if you go over 2300 they will confiscate and refuse to refund so they pretty much allow under 18's and people with gambling problems to lose either there parents credit card funds or as a person with a gambling problem there monthly income
then take action and proceed with locking the account
This Casino is part of the L and L group, they are trustworthy in all aspects as far as I Wass concerned, maybe something was read wrong in the terms or soemthing etc.
As I've been a member of all the casinos in there group and they are all really good reliable casino's
,, live chat agent May should be abke to help out, they are always good to players and very polite and quick too normally, they are dealing with covid at the moment so like most things in the world during this pandemic

MY second deposit playing this casino was for 200 free spins .All was fine until at number 100 spins I was told free spins finished.
This casino was not 24/7 so had to leave a email message.
2 Days later I received a reply message stating we are sorry but cannot supply your 100 remaining spins as there is a problem with the game?
I never received replacement games even after a number of requests.😢
From this day I have not played again.💩

I opened an account with them two months ago. I deposited over Skrill 50 $ and played a couple of slots. The casino is solid, with one big bang. When I made a deposit, they did not give any bonsue through Neteller and Skrill, I did not check if it was still today.
That money I paid, I lost after a couple of days and did not want to make a new deposit. I'm happy with user support that is very effective, everything else - nothing special. Maybe I'll be back in the future.

This casino is really good and has also Christmas Calendar !Today i visited this casino and i open the Christmas Calendar for 23 December and has 25 free spins on Gonzos Quest for any deposit you make but it needs in the past made 2 deposits ! This is a great offer ! I recommend it i can wait to win and open the following offers next days ! I really like this casino but i never withdraw yet from this casino ! I will come back and write my experience if i win to tell my experience about the withdrawal !
I made my first deposit at yeti casino during December and was quick to regret it when I noticed that the L&L group have restricted South Africans from playing the Amamatic slots which to be honest was my only reason for playing at their casinos, Netent is the only provider available now for SA players, the bonus offers are tempting and they send out news letters weekly for players to capitalise on them but I tend to not take them up as the wagering requirements are 50x which is far too high in my view, aside from that they a class A casino group which is trustworthy and fair , I recommend them for players who can play all the software providers though

I made a deposit after accepting the 23 no deposit spins, although I had some fun, there just isnt enough to keep me coming back to Yeti Casino. I have too many loyalty points at other casinos I want to build on before depositing here again, sorry Yeti

I recently opened an account at this casino. I had no issues what so ever with claiming the free spins offered on registration. The mobile platform is amazing smooth and a huge amount of games on offer. I get weekly offers via email and would recommend this casino and will definitely be depositing here very soon. I highly recommend this online casino! A must try 🙂
