O’Reels Casino Review and Promotions
As a casino that was founded in 2017, O’Reels is relatively new on the scene compared to many of the other casinos in the industry. The gaming platform is owned by Progress Play and is a fairly new set up. With so many online casinos in the running, competing and surviving – let alone thriving, is tough for any new casino. However, O’Reels is managing to make a name for itself. So, to join the fun that this casino claims to offer its players, register on this Irish themed slot and start playing for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow reels.
In order to operate legally in countries such as the UK, it has been licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority as well as the UK Gambling Commission. Therefore, you can rest assured that both of these governing bodies have tested the site and held it to the very highest standards to make sure that you, your money and your data is being looked after and that the site is both fair and transparent.
As you can tell by the name, this is another Irish themed casino. This is a theme that seems to be quite popular in the industry. So, how does it compare to the others of its kind? Well, it starts by offering games from top developers such as Microgaming, Nextgen, NetEnt and more. However, in this O’Reels review, we look at everything else that it offers. We check out the game selection, mobile and desktop usability, bonuses and more to see if it has what it takes to make it in the long-term.
Considering this is an Irish themed slot, with a very Irish looking logo, the site isn’t as green and leprechauny as we would expect. In fact, at first glance, the only aspect of the site that does feel Irish is the name and logo. The background is black and the text is white and red… hardly the typical Irish. It does look attractive and bold, but not quite what we expected. The banner along the top invites us to join, advertising the welcome bonus. Above this, you can check out the promotions, access the support, Join, Log In or choose the language.
Beneath this, you can access the games in different categories: New, Featured, Slots, Casino, Live Jackpots, Casual, All and Favourites. There is also a search bar where you can look through the games or sort the games by providers. Below this are the thumbnails for all of the featured games.
If you do need help, then you can click on the support icon (2 speech bubbles) at the top of the screen. You can then choose to start a live chat with a customer service agent or send an email form. However, be aware that the live chat is only available between 08.00 and 12.00am, so it isn’t a 24-hour service. If you want the FAQ section, it is located at the bottom of the home page. Alongside this, you can access areas such as About Us, Contact Us, Deposits, Withdrawals, VIP Club and more.
You can make payments and withdraw from your account using a variety of banking methods including:
- Visa Debit
All in all, the site was very good. It looked clear and concise, and the layout was easy to navigate. In general, the usability was decent.
There are just under 720 games to play on the site from all of the best game developers around, such as NetEnt, Nextgen, Microgaming and more. Like many of the casinos in the industry, there are the majority of slot games. You can play some of the most popular games including:
- Foxin Wins
- Wish Upon a Jackpot
- Book of Dead
- Rainbow Riches
- Book of Oz
There were also lots of jackpot games, including the record-breaking Divine Fortune, as well as others such as Gift Shop, Valhalla Jackpot, Leprechaun goes to Hell and more. We also like the addition of what they describe as ‘casual games’, including scratch games like Lost Vegas Zombie Scratch and Cricket Star Scratch as well as Virtuals like Virtual Tennis and Virtual Football.
Anyone that likes table games will find a number on this site, although not a huge amount. You can enjoy 12 games in total, including baccarat, blackjack and roulette variations. Furthermore, there is a Temple Slots live casino lobby which is powered by NetEnt.
There is also a nice selection of table games – with around 36 in total. There are varieties of games such as roulette, blackjack and baccarat. Furthermore, there is a live casino lobby powered by Evolution Gaming, which has around 45 top games, including Dream Catcher, Baccarat Control Squeeze, Immersive Roulette ad more.
Fortunately, like most casinos, this site has been fully optimized to play on any and all kinds of smartphones and mobile device, whether Android, iOS or others. Also, it’s every bit as good on mobile as it is on desktop, so you can enjoy it whenever you go. All of the games that are available on desktop you will be able to play on mobile – even the live casino, which is great. The menu in the top corner means that any of the games you need can be found in just a couple of touches. The mobile site looks good and looks very similar to the desktop site, so you should be able to use it easily if you are familiar with the casino.
However, if you do wish to play it, then you will only be able to access it by your browser as there is, unusually, currently no mobile app to speak of. However, it is very good via browser. Just make sure you use a safe and secure WiFi connection. As such, you can do everything on the site, including making payments, claiming bonuses and contacting customer services.
O’Reels Welcome Bonus and Offers
The O’Reels welcome bonus doesn’t look much in all honesty. It boasts no big numbers, and you won’t get your hands on a money bonus. What it does offer, however, is up to 55 free spins on Starburst on your first deposits. Like most casinos these days, the welcome offer doesn’t come in one lump sum, it comes in three different stages as follows:
- First deposit – 25 free spins on Starburst
- Second deposit – 15 free spins on Starburst
- Third deposit – 15 free spins on Starburst
Overall, there are 55 free spins you can claim, but you need to be aware that there are T&Cs attached…
- The winnings are subject to a 50-times wagering requirement
- The promotion is not available to players depositing with Skrill
- Your bonus is only valid for a set amount of time
- Free spins are valid only on Starburst.
There are also general terms and conditions that apply to the site as a whole so read through carefully.
The O’Reels VIP Club
A popular regular O’Reels promotion is the VIP Club, which you can join if you’re a loyal player at the casino. Here you will have the opportunity to benefit from all sorts of different perks, depending on the level you are on. You simply need to earn points. For every £16 that you play in the casino, you get one point. The more points you get, the higher your VIP status. It is laid out as follows:
|Online VIP Room Status||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|

Throughout the year, you can find a whole host of promotions. In fact, the site is rich with them most of the time. These change depending on the season. Examples of these might be:
- Weekly Surprise
- Slots League
- Christmases Surprises
- Wednesday Wildfire
- Cashback Weekends
This is a very good casino and we were really impressed with the overall number of games available – and the variety. Many operators offer 300 – 400, but this is a site that offers almost double the others. The quality of the games is also very good. We also were impressed with the number of table games and live casino compared to others.
Customer service was decent. However, we do like the inclusion of phone numbers to contact, and preferably it would be 24 hours if possible. The banking was good and very quick. However, the addition of PayPal as an option would be good.
All in all, this is definitely one of the better casinos. It is very user-friendly and has both quality and quantity of games. It may not look very Irish, but it’s definitely a pot of gold.
- Attractive and well laid-out site
- Live casino
- A great number of games
- Not 24-hour customer service
- No PayPal
