We recommend using the casino's software download for the best experience - extra games, banking facilities, faster action and more realism. You can use the same login details to access the casino's browser-based and mobile casinos. Unfortunately, not all casinos offer download versions but the browser-based casino isn't usually far behind. Mobile casinos are fun 'on the go' and can generate just as big wins as other casino versions but it'll always be behind its download and browser relatives in terms of what it can offer.

The first bonus requires a deposit of just £1 and activates 80 spins (worth £20) playable on any of Zodiac's progressive jackpot games (eg. Mega Moolah).

Most of the casinos recommended at Casino Beacon will accept players in lots of countries and support their associated currencies, not just the United Kingdom and the trusty pound sterling. If you reside outside the UK then we encourage you to take a look at all the casinos we recommend to see if your country is eligible and your own currency supported. The T&C links provided should help.
You can use Currency Calculator to quickly convert bonus amounts to/from any currency (including crypto), courtesy of calculator.net.
BigSpin welcome players from the UK are along with other popular gaming countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and more (see t&c for full list). Note that players is most countries have several banking options but UK players are limited to Bitcoin only.
BigSpin is another attractively-designed, professional online casino from the same stable as the Beacon-approved MYBCasino (also Bitcoin-only for Brits) so you'll be in safe hands at BigSpin. The casino lobby, banking and gaming is all done in your browser or mobile so there's no software to download. Betsoft, Nucleus, Rival and other game designers provide the action, entertainment and hopefully the big jackpot wins. The standard welcome package at BigSpin is a generous 200% up to $1000 but will require a first deposit of at least $100 to get it.
MYBCasino is popular with players worldwide including the UK. First-time depositors can use bonus code MYBC200 to claim a 200% bonus up to $1000 (roughly £760). Gameplay, bonuses and account balances are all displayed in US$ - simply deposit your £UK (or other local currency) and it will be converted to US$ in your player account. The same applies to cashouts - withdraw your US$ and it'll be converted to £UK. Banking options include Bitcoin, credit/debit card and wire transfer but unfortunately no e-wallets (ie. PayPal or Skrill).
MYBCasino needs no download, the casino and lobby are accessible in your browser or using your mobile phone/pad. MYBCasino feels refreshingly 'different' to the plethora of similar online casinos and this is represented in the casino's choice of gaming software. Whilst there are plenty of games from familiar providers such as Betsoft and Rival, players can also explore a variety of games from less known suppliers including Concept Gaming and Nucleus. MYBCasino also has some exclusive games not available anywhere else.
If you've seen one too many almost-identical online casinos then MYBCasino is worth a look. You can try the games for free at the casino's website without registering. Members in all countries get 24/7 support, all year round.

23 May 2019 New slot - Reel Splitter Royal Panda has quick-as-a-flash added the latest slot by Just For The Win (distributed by Microgaming), Reel Splitter. It's got a non-stanard layout in that there are four reels in Reel Splitter, paying on 81-243 different ways with every spin. Expect classic slot game symbols and a free spins bonus round to strive for. The reason behind the name Reel Splitter will become apparent when you score a win with four matching symbols - there is 'a chance' that the 'Reel Split Respin' bonus feature will kick into action, bringing with it a fifth reel (placed between the existing second and third reels) that should - luck holding out - leave you with a silly smile on your face once the feature is finished. Or a pissed-off look if the game is in a mean mood. Y'never know.
New players at Royal Panda get 10 free spins on Starburst (no deposit required - only for players in Austria, Finland, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland and UK) and a 100% first deposit bonus up to £100. Play now - Royal Panda Casino - Royal Panda T&C
16 May 2019 Kitty Bingo complete 'three in a row' blacklist Kitty Bingo has become the third and latest online gambling site to reach new lows, earning a themselves rogue status and a place on the dreaded blacklist of non-recommended casinos/gaming sites - from which there is rarely a return. Following the recent disgrace and shame from BGO and Genting Casino, Kitty Bingo and associated 'friends' (co-sites) have joined the crap-list. We expected a third and Kitty didn't let us down with its kitty litter performance.
For more information and to avoid duplicating the facts you can read more about Kitty Bingo's blacklisting by clicking that link (it'll open in a new window or tab for you). Suffice to say, they've been acting naughty and keeping money for themselves that isn't theirs by shutting down actively earning business client accounts. Separately, and not a small issue, the UK Gambling Commission disapproved so strongly about this company's money laundering and social responsibility responsibilities to the tune of a £7,100,000 fine (YES! You read that amount correctly) - an amount the poor miscreants thought to be 'excessive and disproportionate', which a cynic would argue could be one of the reasons why this group has now started to close cost-incurring advertising contracts and keep (is that the same as steal?) the profits for themselves. To be fair, this group might have BIG PLANS to donate ALL the confiscated money not paid to their advertisers and affiliates and give it ALL to a charity for children! And definitely NOT spend it on luxuries or parties. We can dream - it appears a £7.1m fine wasn't quite enough to encourage Daub Alderney, or its parent company Stride Gaming plc to reconsider their moral approach to the online gambling industry we work in and generally speaking, those who work in online gambling never, ever expect the individuals behind this company to change their ways. Ethics are priceless and worth more than any profit, readers - remember that.
Important: this group of gaming sites has many faces and many names. All gambling sites owned by this group is now considered blacklisted and NOT recommended. As well as Kitty Bingo, this includes Aspers Casino, Bingo Extra, Give Back Bingo, King Jack Bingo, Lucky Pants, Lucky VIP Casino, Magical Vegas, Regal Wins Casino and Spin and Win. We know there are more gambling sites (specifically online casinos) to add to this list so we're not finished here yet. The company itself claims to 'operate over 100 online brands' so we're on the hunt for the bad boys.
New bingo players intending to join Kitty Bingo should instead head for Chit Chat Bingo (they've got casino games too) for a safe, secure gaming atmosphere, loads of bingo rooms at all stakes and no nightmares about being paid if they get fined millions of pounds and have to 'cover those costs' somehow! New players at Chit Chat Bingo start with a welcome bonus and free spins - see today's freebie for new sign-ups and ongoing promo's if you're already a member.

13 May 2019 CasinoLuck reach 20 YEAR milestone CasinoLuck has done very well, celebrating 20 YEARS online with a redesigned website/casino and - best of all - a new logo (woo - exciting, eh?). CasinoLuck opened for business back in 1999 with a straightforward, honest, uncomplicated approach both for players and reviewers such as ourselves, making things easy for everyone to understand what CasinoLuck was/is offering - excellent transparancy that's very often lacking in our line of work. We remember exactly when the casino launched as Casino Beacon was one of the first online casino review sites they approached to endorse CasinoLuck. As a result, CasinoLuck took on board our advice and suggestions and promptly made positive changes to their website and casino in response. You don't forget professionalism like that, even after twenty years.
We recommended CasinoLuck back then and we still do today, enjoying a good relationsip with the people behind the casino. CasinoLuck announced the redesign with some fanfare boasting a much improved player experience in terms of game, lobby and casino naviation. CasinoLuck reckon this latest version of the casino is 'the most user-friendly iteration ever'. Payouts to players are ridiculously fast with winners reporting receiving their money withinin minutes. That's probably quicker than cashing in your chips at a land-based casino!
New players at CasinoLuck get a 100% first deposit bonus up to £150 and if your deposit is £20 or more then you'll also get 150 free spins on the Starburst slot game. Play now - CasinoLuck - CasinoLuck T&C

We've compiled a collection of varied online casino games from different genres, each with its own section - casual games, jackpot games, slots, table games and video poker. Casino games range from quick and easy-to-learn to more involved wagering where it pays dividends to know all the rules. On our 'Games' pages, you will encounter a mixture of new and classic casino games by three of the best online game publishers - Betsoft, Microgaming and NetEnt, each providing free-play or real money versions of their games including slots, scratch cards, roulette, blackjack, poker and more.
Below are just a few of the many games to explore at Casino Beacon and at the best recommended online casinos. Play for real money or enjoy just for fun. Use the links and drop-down menus above to select a game type or software, or head to the main Online Casino Games page and start your your journey there.
European Roulette by NetEnt European Roulette by NetEnt has a smooth look with easy on the eye graphics. The game has hot and cold numbers, rebet, auto play and double up features. Perhaps the best addition is the option to name your stored bet combinations, you can also choose to play special bets such as black/red splits. NetEnt's European Roulette looks great but we wanted to have more to praise. We expected to see different camera angles, eg. a close up or side view of the wheel. Although another comfortable, sleek release by NetEnt, there is room for improvement.
Germinator by Microgaming Germinator is a casual game by Microgaming with some icky but cute looking germs that sneeze and cough, which is quite sweet and entertaining. There's five strains of germ, each with different values. Form wins by matching three or more germs in a row, vertical or horizontal. Matching germs will disappear, making way for more germs to drop in, hopefully forming more wins. Three or more 'capsule scatters' will activate the 'Medi Bonus', enabling you to remove a strain of germ, making up the biggest win.
Joker Poker by Betsoft Joker Poker is a standard video poker game that is almost entirely faithful to the original game but with a twist - there's a joker card that acts as 'wild', replacing other cards to form wins. On top of standard poker wins, Joker Poker also allows wild wins (with the joker card) to form a wild royal flush and five of a kind.
Marbles by NetEnt Marbles is a simple but fun scratch card game by that generates more entertainment and excitement along the way than most scratch games. There's a magic theme to the game, the scratching is done with a wand. The game starts with eight marbles. You have six shots at finding three gold marbles. Find all three gold marbles to win the mystery cash prize. If you lose, you will be shown where the missing gold marbles are.
Premier Roulette by Microgaming Premier Roulette by Microgaming is one of the better versions of online roulette. The game is equally well suited to beginners and pro's, with a clear layout and a good-sized 3D roulette wheel, always in view, making it easy to see where the ball lands. Premier Roulette has two game modes - Regular and Expert. You can change game speed, repeat or double bets in both modes. Expert mode is even more accommodating, offering an auto-play facility and enabling you to save up to five chip layouts that you can edit at any time.
Reel Talent by Microgaming Slot-lovers with a thing for talent shows will probably love this new slot game, Reel Talent. The game is published by well-known Microgaming but developed by the less-familiar JFTW - Just For The Win. Reel Talent is a fun, cartoon-style five reel slot with 20 win-lines and lots of entertaining features. The theme is 'TV talent show' and the multiple win-boosting game features include free spins, 'fire-breathing crocodile' wild symbols and a Superspin bonus where all reels are filled with the same symbol, which can only mean enormous wins.
Shoot 4 Gold by NetEnt Shoot 4 Gold is an entertaining scratch card game with a fun, interactive style. The game is a classic 'fairground-style' duck shoot, with eight duck targets. Shoot a duck and hopefully find a gold star. There are three gold stars to find and you've got six shots to find them. Find all three gold stars to win a cash prize. A slickly presented game that's good fun to play, win or lose.
True Illusions by Betsoft For those with an interest in the mysterious, True Illusions is a magic-themed five reel 3D slot game by Betsoft. Watch the amazing (and a bit creepy looking) magician perform tricks as you spin. True Illusions has 30 win-lines and an interactive 'Pick A Card, Any Card' bonus round. Collect three or more magician symbols to win free spins with cascading wins. Three stacked wilds on the centre reel magically transforms the entire reel wild for up to 7 spins.
