The weather is starting to cool off, summer is winding down, and soon fall and winter will make their appearance across Europe. Thankfully, for players who like to have a few spins in their leisure time, there are plenty of European casinos online that save you having to travel to an in-person one. Here are the best things to look out for in an online European casino when choosing one from our reviews.

Welcome packages and bonuses

If you’ve not registered for a casino before, having a welcome bonus makes the deal just a little sweeter. Usually casinos will offer free spins, a match bonus, or even bonus cash to new players. These bonuses might expire after some time or might have other limits, so it’s important to check the terms and conditions of the promotion before you accept its requirements. We’ve listed a number of the best bonuses to look for and what each one does.

Sometimes casinos will offer a bonus based on a particular event – maybe they are running a Christmas promotion, a summer promotion, or a promotion related to a particular event like a sports tournament. In those cases the bonuses will usually require actively opting in to the promotion, but there are usually special rewards for doing so! A casino running a promotion related to a certain game or provider for instance will usually give away great bonuses related to that particular game.

European Casino payment methods

European casinos support a wide range of payment options. For players in countries supporting Pay N Play, simply registering with the casino is enough to start playing, with the already linked system creating an easy way to play. For players in other countries or who prefer not to use Pay N Play, there are many different payment options in different countries, and for different currencies.

  • eWallets:  From a choice of many different ones such as Skrill, Neteller, Euteller or many more, players can top up this online wallet from their regular bank account and benefit from almost instant deposits and fast withdrawals.
  • Bank transfer: Many casinos in Europe accept direct bank or wire transfer, meaning you do not have to create any extra accounts.
  • Card: Linked to your bank account, card payments are available for almost all European online casinos.
  • Prepaid cards: Using a prepaid card to top up your casino wallet is extremely easy, and there are a wide range accepted in EU casinos, like the Paysafe card or Revolut.

Slot Games and Live Casino

The huge range of slot games available at online casinos in Europe is no accident – some of the biggest providers such as NetEnt or Microgaming are licenced in multiple EU jurisdictions and so are available across the board. Although there may be exceptions here or there, for the most part the same great games which are fair and fun are available no matter where you go.

If you’re after the same feeling as you’d get when you’re in a brick and mortar casino, then live casino options might be for you. Available in a wide range of languages, live casino gives you the option of playing live table games like roulette, blackjack, or poker with a dealer who is a real person. You can chat with them, make your plays yourself, and experience the atmosphere of a real casino if you were really there.

Safe and secure

European casinos have to be extraordinarily safe and secure. As a result of extensive licencing across the continent, casinos operating in Europe for European customers are well versed in legislation and regulations that have to be applied to their operations. Casinos must always list their operating licence on their site at all times, and you can always check this to see if it is up to date and acceptable for you. Generally, casinos operating through all of Europe will have a licence from the MGA, but it is common to see licences from the UKGC, the Swedish Gaming Authority, Alderney, or Italy, among others.
