Welcome bonus: 100% Up to £100T&C apply
The Vera & John Casino was established in 2011, and they think their casino is “the best thing since sliced bread” – so it’s time to take a look to see whether it’s as fresh and welcoming as a newly baked loaf or whether it’s as stale as sandwich that’s been left out in the sun.
The casino say that their aim is to create the most fun and inspiring online casino in the world, with innovative fun products in a fun, welcoming and user-friendly setting – and the beach-front homepage with rainbows disappearing into the distance and a pile of cash on the beach certainly provide a fun setting.
There’s also lots of great games to choose from. There’s 31 Jackpot Slots aimed at getting your heart racing with the thrill and anticipation of a big win, whilst players who love their classic slots can enjoy 25 different varieties. However, where the casino really excels is in offering players a choice of over 400 slots from creators such as Netent, Microgaming, Play’n Go, Nextgen, Leander Games, Williams Interactive and Evolution Games.
There are also loads of table games to enjoy including Poker, Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack, Pontoon, Red Dog, Punto Banco and Craps, whilst if you fancy some live-action you can head to either the Casino Paris or the Casino Cosmpolitan.
New members of the Vera & John Casino will be instantly rewarded with a simple but welcoming 100% first deposit bonus of up to £100. All deposits and bonuses are also kept separate, with the bonus money needing to be wagered 40x prior to withdrawal. Note all games don’t count 100% towards your wagering requirements – but the great news is that slot games do!
Vera & John say you’ll love their bonuses like “the Cookie Monster loves cookies”, and players can look forward to Deposit Bonuses, Bonus Cups, Spin Credits, Free Spins and a Loyalty Scheme.
It’s a great idea to sign-up for the casino newsletter as, not only do you find out all the latest casino news, you’ll also receive offers of 50% and 100% deposit bonuses, and bonus cups such as deposit £20 and get a £10 bonus. You may also find you’ve been awarded spin credits and free spins.
The Loyalty Bonus is also a fun addition for members, and the aim is to participate in a number of activities to earn coins which you can spend in the V&J Shop. Some of these activities are also really simple, such as logging-in, rating a room or game, making a deposit, playing for real money, and trying new games. There’s also additional coin rewards for referring friends, with more coins when those friends become members too.
In The Slot
As slot game creators continue to excel themselves, it’s great to see that Vera & John have a portfolio of over 400 slots that includes some fun games such as Monopoly Big Event, Natural Powers, and Lobstermania 2.
The series of Monopoly Games from Barcrest continue to be popular, and Monopoly Big Event includes everyone’s favourite Monopoly characters and the chance to play some brilliant features such as the Progressive Multiplier Bonus, Epic Spins Bonus and the Persisting Wild Big Event. If you like your sexy slot protagonists then there’s nothing like combining the four female forces of Earth, Wind, Fire and Ice in IGT’s Natural Power where a Mystery Feature can blow you away. Meanwhile, cartoon slot lovers will adore Lobstermania 2 in which Larry the Lobster sets off on another seaside slot adventure in search of Golden Lobsters and a Bonus Pick Feature.
But that’s just a trio of my favourites, and there’s loads of other great games to play including Isle of Plenty, Driver Multiplier Mayhem, Cash Cave, Nordic Heroes, Guns N Roses, Glow, Fruit shop, Hot as Hades, Doctor Love, and Game of Thrones, to name but a few.
If you try and access the main casino using mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, Blackberry or Android Tablets or Smarphones you will be instantly transferred to the Vera & John Mobile Casino where you can enjoy Vera & John’s hospitality with no further fuss.
The Vera & John Help Centre is set out to be as helpful as possible, and includes a live-chat option were you can type your request or question and someone will be with you as swiftly as possible. There’s also a phone number and email address if you prefer to contact them those ways.
Overall Thoughts Review
I like the Vera & John ethos of trying to create a fun and friendly place to play your favourite slots and table games – especially as they really deliver on the expectations they create. The casino is bright and colourful, and really makes every effort to make everything as clear as they can when it comes to deposits, bonuses and wagering requirements. That clarity is also sure to alleviate pressure on the Help Centre, which has also been set-up in a really customer friendly way. The choice of games is also wide and varied, and there’s some great slots to play. Being the best thing since sliced bread is a big statement to make – but I’d certainly recommend opening the oven and having a taste of what is a really great product!
