Casino Friday Review

A Great Casino With a Fantastic Welcome Offer

By Casinomeister, Last updated Mar 26, 2024

Casinomeister's Verdict

I’m excited about Casino Friday. I love the 200 free spins, the wide variety of games, fantastic customer support and super-fast cashouts are just a few reasons to play. Having worked intimately with many casinos here at Casinomeister, I like their quality of service and site speed. It’s a fun site to play at.

From the desk of Max Drayman

We’ve had four Player Arbitration (PAB) complaints against Casino Friday since they came on board at Casinomeister in late 2022: three of those cases were blatant Terms violations, not unusual at a new casino as the chancers have a go to see what they can get away with; and one legitimate case where the player had signed on from a restricted country — all deposits were returned.

The casino reps are responsive and deal with issues very quickly.

From the complaints side of things I’d say Casino Friday gets two thumbs up.

First Impression

Casino Friday is straightforward to navigate, boasting cool features that make playing fun. With clearly defined offers and Terms that are easy to find and read the casino looks as though it fits in today’s iGaming industry. Generous 200 free spins new-player offer gives you a ton of free spins which can be used on a wide variety of slots and that all important first deposit bonus. It’s a relaxed and positive gaming experience.

Casino Friday is owned by 1up Entertainment BV, and we’ll also be looking at the company behind the site in more depth later on in this Friday review – yes, really – it’s written on a Friday! Let’s look at the bonuses and promotions on offer.

Pros

  • Experienced team

  • Loyalty program and SpinBooster

  • Weekend withdrawals

  • Wide selection of games and software

  • BTC friendly

Cons

  • Payouts could be quicker

  • No Poker

  • No Sports

Bonuses and Promotions

Casino Friday offers a main 100% match welcome bonus — and this 100% match casino Friday bonus is available to all new players. We’ll discuss this bonus, which games contribute to the wagering requirements, and look at the VIP and Loyalty programs available below.

Welcome Offer

The main bonus at Casino Friday is quite generous and they offer a 100% matched deposit bonus on your first deposit, up to $200. Alongside this, you’ll also get 200 free bonus spins – and these 200 free bonus spins are then credited to your account at a rate of 20 per day for 10 days. You can use the free spins on several different games at Casino Friday. Casino welcome bonus offers are rarely two-tiered like this, and we love how the deposit bonus allows you to get both a matched deposit bonus value and free spins.

The minimum deposit required for the bonus and free spins is $20. Claiming the 100% match bonus at the casino is nice and simple too when it comes to our bonus wagering requirements. You don’t need a bonus code or anything like that, and no cash-out limits apply to your bonus winnings. Casino Friday gives off a relaxed feeling with a non-sticky parachute bonus. This allows you to play casino games with your cash first, so until you choose to dip into your bonus money, the wagering requirements and bonus terms do not apply.

When you decide to break into the bonus bank, x40 wagering requirements apply, so you’ll need to play through your Casino Friday bonuses 40 times before the bonus money becomes real, withdrawable cash.

There’s also a maximum bet limit of $5 when playing games with bonus funds, and not all games contribute the same towards the wagering requirement.

Naturally, Terms and Conditions are attached to both the main bonuses at Casino Friday. Casino Friday states you have to complete any wagering requirements within 14 days, and the welcome bonus offer is limited to one welcome bonus per household. The same goes for the 200 free spins – if someone else from your household has claimed the welcome bonus and received the 200 free spins, you will not be eligible to claim it yourself.

No-Deposit & 200 Free Spins Offers

If you’re looking to start playing at Casino Friday with a no-deposit bonus or no-deposit-required free spins, unfortunately, you won’t find any no-deposit bonuses here. However, you can start playing with the generous welcome bonus, which does award you free spins — and, as you get 20 free spins every day for 10 days, there’s a lot of free spins to look forward to that can’t be seen at other casinos!

SpinBooster Rewards System

This is exciting and unique for those who love playing games with free spins – and it’s called SpinBooster. With the SpinBooster, you can level up within the casino by playing games. Each time you level up, you get free spins which can then be used on several popular video slots.

The free spins reward system is a personalised rewards system that is based on your specific gameplay. So it’s different for everyone because, as Casino Friday put it themselves: “After all, how tilting is it when you play for $5 a spin and get some 10 cent spins on a random slot? Not at Casino Friday.”

The SpinBooster rewards system does have an x30 wagering requirement attached to any winnings, however, so you’ve got to play those free spins winnings 30 times before you can convert the bonus funds to real cash. Live Casino games, table games and video poker games do not contribute to the wagering requirements, casino players need to bear this in mind.

VIP and Loyalty Programs

While compiling our casino review, we found that the casino itself actually headhunts members of the Casino Friday VIP program. You become a VIP by invitation ONLY. Casino Friday will contact you directly if they think you’ve got the potential to be a Casino Friday VIP.

It’s important to note that as a casino player, you have to have your communications switched on to be contacted and be in with a chance of being a significant person to Casino Friday.

Once you’re behind the virtual velvet rope, you can reap some very nice rewards. This includes a weekly real money cashback of up to 20%, with no wagering requirements, access to the VIP manager, as well as better and more valuable bonuses and free spins across the board, with far fewer restrictions.

On top of this, VIPs also get access to exclusive tournaments, cash drop promotions, wagering races, giveaways and more.

BANKING AND PAYMENT METHODS

When it comes to depositing money for real money play, the number of payment methods at Casino Friday could be improved — the number of payment methods they offer isn’t great for deposits and withdrawals. Casino Friday accepts both Fiat and Cryptocurrency, in the form of cards, prepaid cards, and E-wallets such as Skrill, Neteller, etc. Full banking options include MasterCard, Visa, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz, Bitcoin and Paysafecard.

The fact that you can deposit by Bitcoin is a huge plus which is making this one of the greatest casino Friday reviews — very forward-thinking as far as online casinos go — something we’ll cover separately later as you learn more about the casino.

In general, there’s a minimum deposit of $10 and a minimum withdrawal of $20.

None of Casino Friday’s payment methods come with any charges or fees, and deposited funds are credited to your account immediately so you can begin playing right away.

Withdrawal Speed

Casino Friday aims to process withdrawals within a few days. Their team told us: “Our payment team will try to process your withdrawal within a few days. Once the withdrawal is approved, the money should arrive in your bank account within 0-5 business days.”

How quickly your withdrawal request is processed depends on the type of payment method you used: some methods allow for your withdrawal request to be fulfilled immediately, or it could take up to 5 business days.

Casino Friday does let itself down here a little when compared to other online casinos, as they allow players to reverse their withdrawal request while it is pending. It might feel like a good thing to have the freedom to reverse, but when that freedom encourages you to put your winnings back into the casino, it may not be such a blessing. We’d like to see Casino Friday implementing a withdrawal lock function in the future by the next casino Friday review.

Responsible Gaming

Casino Friday has done itself proud here, providing a range of responsible gaming tools to users.

Not only can players set daily, weekly or monthly limits, but also deposit limits, loss limits and wager limits.

It’s easy enough to set your limits; Casino Friday is really on it with responsible gaming accessibility. You can set your limits directly from your account once you’ve logged in. All you have to do is click on the three lines on the bottom left corner of the screen to open your menu and then choose ‘limits’ to see all available options. Nice and convenient. You can also set a Time Out if you want to take a short break from gambling.

A downside, however, is that you can’t self-exclude from gameplay unless you contact support directly. Still, generally, Casino Friday takes responsible gaming seriously — which is better than many online casinos.

Customer Support

The customer support service offered at Casino Friday is excellent; though, oddly, it’s not confirmed on-site what the customer support team opening hours actually are. At the time of this review, Casino Friday gave us the option to get in touch with someone via email and live chat.

For this review, we had a conversation with the Casino Friday customer service team.  We opened the live chat at 14:17 and got through to a very helpful agent just a minute later. Our live chat request was accepted without delay (we asked for a self-exclude), and the whole thing took about 5 minutes.

Overall, quick and good customer support from Casino Friday, which is good to know if you have an important question about wagering requirements or minimum deposit requirements.

It’s also possible to attach any files you might need to share within the customer support chat so you can send screenshots and documents, no problem. Alongside this, you can send a transcript of the chat to yourself, just in case you need to keep a record.

Email support is also available if you have a query, whether it’s about first deposit methods, minimum withdrawal limits or wagering requirements. To use email support, head to the website’s “Contact Us” page and complete the online form. A member of the support team will then get back to you as soon as they can.

KYC

Casino Friday is thorough, and the verification process is no different. The whole thing can take up to 72 hours once your supporting documents have been provided. You’ll need a passport, national identity card or driving license, coupled with a recent utility bill (e.g. gas, telephone, insurance) less than three months old, to confirm your current address.

No one likes admin, but as tedious as this process might be, the casino people are professional and thorough: one feels confidence in this online casino. Once that’s out of the way, you’ll be able to make as many deposits and withdrawals as you like, and it’s highly unlikely that you’ll need to undergo the verification process again.

Please note that while players from Canada and many other countries are welcome, there is a long list of restricted countries including the United Kingdom and the United States. Depending on where you live, there might be some trouble when it comes to enjoying casino Friday.

Website Experience and Features

Desktop and Mobile Gaming

Casino Friday has done an excellent job with their website: it’s modern, easy-to-navigate, easy-to-use and user-friendly; so finding your way around, choosing the right casino games and loading up real money games is simple and straightforward. They’ve also invested heavily in their mobile casino.

Everything on the desktop version can be conveniently found on your mobile device. It isn’t just a copy of the desktop either: the look and functionality have been optimally customised for mobile use. The design is smart, light and aesthetically pleasing.

Access to the support chat is also available on the mobile version, and it is just as easy to use, so no worries there either. Unfortunately, there’s no downloadable app just yet — but the mobile site is so good that we don’t really miss it.

Brand games

Providers

With over 2,000 games available, it’s no surprise that a range of premium software providers supply the slots, table games, and live dealer games at Casino Friday.

Casino Friday games are made by online slots favourites such as Netent, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Betsoft, Big Time Gaming, Red Tiger Gaming, iSoftBet, Push Gaming and Relax Gaming. There are also live dealer games from Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play.

Slots

Modern and minimalistic, Casino Friday offers a great slots section. They have a “Game of the Week” feature that introduces players to a recommended game in the lobby. At the bottom of each slot, you have slot themes, which allow you to filter slots by themes or other features such as free spins. You can even search for other slots while playing.

Filtering options include Drops & Wins, High Volatility, Bonus Buy, Sticky Wilds, Egypt, Free Spins Feature, Colossal Symbols, Re-spins, Joker, Asia, Falling Symbols, Multiplying Wilds, Walking Wilds, Random Wilds, Classic Slots and Sports.

You can also search by the name of the game developer — just type ‘Red Tiger Gaming’, ‘Push Gaming’ or ‘Tom Horn’ into the search box. If you have a favourite slot, you can easily search for that too, type in ‘Wolf Gold’, ‘Temple Tumble Megaways’ or ‘Gonzo’s Quest Megaways’ to play these blockbusters! We like Wolf Gold, and if you deposit at the casino, we recommend you give it a try for yourself. John Hunter and the Book of Tut is also well worth a play, in our opinion.

Another really cool and relatively rare feature is that you can make the game window smaller, allowing you to navigate other games or visit your account while you play at Casino Friday.

Live Casino

When it comes to the live casino section, Casino Friday offers a great choice of games, with options to filter live games by Popular Live Games, Live Roulette, Game Shows, Live Blackjack and Live Baccarat. Live dealer games from big names Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play ensure you’re getting an excellent service.

Both live games leaders Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play, are renowned for their professionalism, experience and great game selection, featuring Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and all the live casino games players might want.

The live casino also offers more creative live dealer games, including Crazy Time, Monopoly Live and Football Studio Live. All the live casino games are found under the “Live Casino” tab, and you’ll find more than 30 games and live dealer lobbies to choose from. In short, Casino Friday does an excellent job with its live games. We’re also pleased to see industry-leader Evolution making an appearance, as their titles have proven incredibly popular among players.

Table Games

Slots, table games… Casino Friday has it all – and if you’re looking to play casino table games, you’ll be pleased to learn the site offers a great deal of real money casino table games for you to enjoy.

Whether it’s Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette or Video Poker — the site has it all. Let’s begin with a look at their Roulette offering.

Casino Friday offers a ton of Roulette games. Some of the site’s most popular versions of the game include: Roulette Nouveau, American Roulette, Roulette X2, Sapphire Roulette, 10p Roulette, European Roulette, Turbo Roulette, First Person Roulette and Multi-Wheel Roulette.

The Blackjack offer at the casino is equally impressive, with top games including Blackjack Neo, Classic Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, European Blackjack, European Blackjack Gold Series and Single Deck Blackjack.

Baccarat is available alongside other casino games including Craps, Three Card Poker and Oasis Poker.

When it comes to Video Poker, Casino Friday also offers a fantastic selection of games. This includes the likes of All Aces, Double Double Bonus, Aces and Faces Poker, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better and Aces & Eights.

Progressive Jackpots

No online casino would be complete without progressive jackpot games; Casino Friday’s jackpot offerings can be found under the “Jackpots” tab.

When you first open the page, the jackpot numbers run-up before finally settling on the current jackpot total available. This is displayed on each game icon, which is nice and exciting. This is not something all casinos do and it makes a cool change in the world of progressive jackpots.

There might not be too many jackpot games available, but the ones they have are very popular. There’s Mega Moolah, Book of Atem WOW POT, Wheel of Wishes, Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah and more.

At the time of this review, Casino Friday had a combined progressive jackpots total of $26,208,278.02.

About the Team and History

Casino Friday is operated by 1UP Entertainment BV, veterans of the online casino world, who also run the hugely popular gambling sites Rizk and Guts.

For Canadian players the site holds an online gambling license from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission; they’re also licensed in Curaçao, allowing them to accept new players from all over the world.

Complaints and Track Record

After a quick dig around, we did notice a few negative comments here and there. Some suggested there were clarity issues with the T&Cs of Casino Friday. We also found a complaint regarding a withdrawal issue, as well as a suggestion that it would be better to be able to take a break for longer than 24 hours. However, overall, the positives seemed to outweigh the negatives quite dramatically for this particular online casino.

If you want to lodge a complaint with the casino, you’ll need to do so in writing by sending them an email. They will then look into your complaint, and if you’re unhappy with their response, you can contact the casino rep through our iGaming rep list. If that doesn’t satisfy, you can submit a PAB here at Casinomeister.
