Welcome bonus: £820 Sign Up BonusT&C apply
Powered by Playtech and owned by one of the biggest gambling groups in the world, 21Nova certainly has the kahunas to mix it with the big boys.
If the name isn’t familiar, 21Nova’s parent group – WHG International Ltd, which owns William Hill Casino, among others – certainly will be. As such, you can expect lots of Playtech slots (both instant-play or download), amazing support, and some great security.
But does the overall casino experience stack up against the reputation? Let’s take a closer look to see if this casino will be going ‘supernova’ any time soon.
Grab a Top Welcome Bonus
New depositors at 21Nova can earn a lovely welcome bonus worth 320% (yes, 320%) up to £320. There’s a minimum deposit of £10 required, which makes the offer great for all players. Not only that, there’s a pretty friendly 25x wagering requirement attached too.
If you’re making a second deposit, you can earn a tasty 60% up to £500 – not a bad follow-up if you have the funds available.
Eligible Games:Slots 100%, Scratchcards 100%, table games 5-25%
Enjoy A Tonne Of Free Spins
If a healthy welcome bonus isn’t enough for you, the regular on-site offers might be. Free spins are awarded from time to time, and can be found in your account when you log on.
As with other William Hill-operated casinos, depositors can enjoy various bonuses depending on their banking option choice. VISA, MasterCard and Diners Club users can get a 10% bonus when they use their cards, while e-Wallet depositors get a 15% bonus on top of their cash.
Players can get a £50 maximum bonus when they refer a friend. Friends must deposit and wager £50 for you to earn the same in bonus cash. There’s also a wagering requirement of 18x attached in order to claim the money.
WHG casinos are known for their VIP programmes, and 21Nova is no different. The CLUB21 Loyalty Program awards Comp Points when you play real-money games (4 points for every £1 wagered), which can then be exchanged for special prizes. VIPs can also make use of occasional Double Comp Points promotions, as well as faster cash-out times and invites to exclusive events.
What’s In Store For Online Slots Fans?
If you’re looking for NetEnt or Microgaming classics at 21Nova, think again. There are hundreds of slots to choose from, but it’s Playtech all the way.
In both desktop and mobile platforms, slots are well signposted and separated into categories like Classics, jackpot games, and so on. You will, however, have to specifically select the Play-Money casino when you log in. Annoyingly, you can’t pick and choose which Real and Play-Money games you want on the same screen.
Expect, therefore, games of the calibre of Gladiator, Football Carnival and Sherlock Mystery, while several progressives of the likes of Beach Life, Monty Python’s Spamalot and Esmeralda keep things ticking along nicely. As you’d expect, a lot is made of Playtech’s Marvel slots, so you will find a big selection of games like Hulk, Spider-Man and Iron Man 3.
21Nova is currently offering double comp points on the excellent Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven slot.
What Else Is On the Casino Floor?
There are around 20 table games at 21Nova, including a big selection of roulette games (around 16) and rather fewer on the blackjack side.
There’s a limited Live Casino, but it’s a Playtech-powered Live Casino so expect a totally slick operation. The 7-Seat Baccarat Live game has a progressive jackpot that – at time of writing – was heading for £100,000.
Making it Mobile
While desktop players can download a fully-stocked casino client, mobile gamblers have to resort to a basic instant-play site. It’s no biggie, however, and we found logging in and finding mobile games easy on our Android and iOS devices.
There are dozens of great Playtech slots dedicated to mobile players, with Vacation Station and Plenty O’ Fortune among the picks.
24-Hour Customer People
It’s always nice to see ’24-HOUR SUPPORT’ screaming out at you from an online casino. And UK gamblers can enjoy 24-hour customer service from 21 Nova. There’s a freephone number to call (0800-0149-450) while we found the email support excellent. There’s also a 24/7 Live Chat service, available in several languages.
Is 21 Nova The Big Star?
You can never really go wrong with Playtech-powered online casinos, and with WHG in charge 21Nova are in good hands. NetEnt and Microgaming fans will want to look elsewhere, but if you like mixing up some top Playtech roulette with your Marvel progressives, you’ll warm to the site.
The bonuses are mixed and suit all wallets, while the software itself is easy to download and navigate. Start planning your Playtech playing schedule now and work out how you’re going to work off that £320 bonus.
