Once you’ve created a new account and are ready to make your first deposit, you can look forward to claiming the 100% up to R3,333 Welcome Bonus as well as 100 free spins for either the excellent video slot Joker Pro or space-based gem adventure game Starburst. Not bad considering you’ve just walked in the virtual doors, we’re sure you’ll agree. The only weird thing is that when looking at the promotions page for the ‘Cool Welcome Offer’ as they call it, things switch into UK Pounds, which is annoying to say the least. But rest assured that you will be able to deposit in South African Rands and also receive everything back in the same currency. So, are there any hidden catches or things to watch out for? Well, let’s take a look at the terms…
First of all, we must congratulate the lawyers and copy writers working for Yeti Casino, because the terms and conditions are written in plain, clear and concise English, which is something that can’t really be said about 90 percent (or more) of the other online casinos out there. So, after a brief look over the main terms, we can pull out the fact that wagering requirements on the bonus amount and any winnings from free spins stands at 40 times. This means that if you max out the welcome offer and take the full R3,333, you’ll need to play through R133,320 on slots (which contribute 100% as opposed to other game types like video poker, table games or live casino which do not contribute in any way, shape or form). This may seem like a really high amount to wager, and it is, agreed, but playing through that much also means you’re likely to win along the way too, so it’s just a matter of seeing if you come out on top at the end. Also, you have 30 days to do it, so plenty of time during your first month at the casino.
Yeti Casino has a games roster getting on for 500 in total, so we’re pretty sure you won’t ever lack for options, especially as new titles are added on a fairly regular basis. A who’s who list of the best games providers is partnered up with Yeti, including the likes of NetEnt, Microgaming, Thunderkick, Blueprint, Elk Studios, Bally, Novomatic, NextGen, IGT and more. That means you’ll soon be playing games as diverse as Gods of Olympus, Book of Christmas, A Dark Matter, Rainbow Riches Megaways and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, for example.
Table games, such as the classics like roulette, blackjack and baccarat, are in plentiful supply, as well as a healthy selection of the best progressive jackpot games with their multi million Rand prizes. Check out titles like Mega Moolah Isis, Divine Fortune, Hall of Gods, Arabian Nights and Major Millions to get a good spread of the titles out there. And keep an eye on the jackpots page to see which one is likely to drop in the next few hours or days.
Yeti Casino delivers the live dealer goods as well, with a long page of all imaginable table games produced by the venerable Evolution Gaming. Everything is streamed in HD quality with multiple cameras angles utilised to give you a real sense of being sat at the table. You can of course communicate with the croupiers during the games, and if you want to try something a little different, there are novelty titles like Deal or No Deal, Side Bet City and Football Studio.
There’s very little about the dedicated VIP scheme at Yeti Casino and there was nothing mentioned in the FAQs, so we assume it’s a lowkey, personal service by invitation only. So, be on the lookout for a call from an account manager if you play at the casino regularly enough.
Yeti Casino has obtained the two most difficult to obtain and maintain gaming licences in the world from the esteemed United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) and Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). Therefore, not only can expect all transactions to be handled securely and discreetly via the SSL encryption technology, but you can also rest assured that all advertising is fair and offers are well explained in the terms and conditions, so you won’t be tricked into something you didn’t actually want. In short, Yeti won’t be cheating you at all – you’re in safe hands with them.
South African players at Yeti Casino get round the clock customer support. Live chat is by far your best bet for resolving an issue quickly and efficiently. There the option of phoning up, but as the head office is based in Malta, Europe, we wouldn’t recommend a long distance call to a different continent. Failing that, you can always write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – you will typically receive a reply within 24 hours and sometimes much sooner. Alternatively, VIP players can get in touch (and no doubt receive a fast reply) by emailing email@example.com.
The FAQ section is always worth a try too, as it’s written excellently. All of the most common questions regarding payment methods, account options and other details are covered in full.
The following payment options are listed on the South African version of the site: Visa, MasterCard, Zimpler, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Bank Wire Transfer, Interac, bitpay, EcoPayz, iDebit, Sofort, Trustly and PayPal. So, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that suits you best. Just note that it can take up to 10 days to receive a withdrawal request depending on the particular method used – bank wire transfers, while very safe, almost always take the longest. And to find out exactly which methods you can use to deposit, withdraw or both, simply get in touch with the customer support team ahead of making any transactions. Better safe than sorry.
We were very impressed by the features, layout and options presented by Yeti Casino – and we must give a special shoutout the fact that they’ve bucked the iGaming trend of their peers and kept the terms and conditions (and other text) in plain, readable English throughout. This experience is further enhanced by the excellent customer support team – it’s a bonus that they’re available around the clock too. So, with a decent welcome bonus, a great range of games and excellent payment options, we can’t help but give our full recommendation to Yeti.
