A brand new L&L Europe casino

By Alex Smith, Last updated Mar 17, 2024

Casinomeister's Verdict

Pub Casino is a relatively new online casino from L&L Europe – which is an award winning casino group at Casinomeister. We have an excellent relationship with the owners and operators. We have no hesitations in recommending players to join Pub Casino.

If you’d like to learn more about this online casino, keep reading this review. We’ll discuss our first impressions of the casino to kick things off.

From the desk of Max Drayman

As you’ll have seen in this review, Pub Casino is new to the scene.

Not surprisingly, there have been zero complaints to date. If and when complaints should arise, I would have no worries because the L&L team (Jan L&L is the excellent rep on our forums) are totally reliable in that they address issues very quickly, usually within hours, and players are treated fairly.

Full steam ahead!

First Impression

The original version of this Pub Casino review was written before the site had launched; now, they’re up and live, and we can write a far more accurate review! In our previous review, we noted that we have an excellent relationship with the owners but didn’t know how the site would actually look.

Well, as expected from the name, the online casino is designed to look like a classic British pub! The main header image shows a can of beer on a pub’s bar, and, interestingly, the casino has opted for a black and white colour scheme for most of the site; even the game library displays in black and white!

As predicted – like all of the online gambling properties operated by the group – Pub Casino has an online gambling license from the UK Gambling Commission and the Maltese Gaming Authority.

Let’s kick off things Pub Casino review with a look at the site’s bonuses and promotions!

Pros

  • Interesting design and concept

  • Decent deposit bonus

  • Plenty of casino games

  • Customer messages are answered quickly

  • UK-licensed

Cons

  • Accepts only UK and N. Irish players

  • No VIP or loyalty program

Deposit Bonuses and Promotions

In this section of our review of Pub Casino, we’ll be taking a closer look at the different bonuses available. The key areas we’ll focus on include the main welcome bonus, no-deposit bonuses, and the VIP program, if available.

Today, all online casinos that want to be taken seriously need to offer new players a welcome bonus and recurring promotions – although there’s no denying that the UK’s online gambling landscape has made things much harder for operators. Let’s look at the main welcome bonus available at Pub Casino.

Welcome Bonus

All new players at Pub Casino can claim a 100% match deposit bonus of up to £100. This means that whatever amount you deposit, Pub Casino will double it, up to the maximum limit of £100.

Unfortunately, Pub Casino states that their welcome bonus is only available to UK players; this means those from other countries won’t be able to claim anything!

Thankfully, the welcome bonus is a “parachute” bonus, so your bonus funds are kept separate from your cash balance. This means you can withdraw any winnings without worrying about wagering requirements – as long as you haven’t dipped into your bonus funds, yet.

Once you dip into the deposit bonus funds, the wagering requirements are 40X. You have 30 days to complete the wagering, which, we feel, is more than enough time. We should also point out that slots, Slingo games, and video slots contribute 100% towards wagering, while video poker and casino games don’t.

Bonuses are restricted to one account per person, family, address, household, credit card number, email address, or IP address. As always, we recommend reading the terms and conditions in full before claiming the welcome bonus at Pub Casino to ensure you understand the terms and conditions.

No-Deposit & Free Spins Offers

As of now, Pub Casino does not offer a no-deposit bonus. We think it’s unlikely they will in the future, given their target market – the UK – but if this changes, we’ll update this review accordingly.

VIP and Loyalty Programs

Pub Casino does not offer a VIP program for its players. This decision is primarily due to the UK Gambling Commission’s (UKGC) recent clampdown on VIP programs to promote responsible gambling and protect vulnerable players from potential harm.

BANKING AND PAYMENT METHODS

Like all L&L Europe brands, Pub Casino offers various payment methods. Players can make deposits and withdrawals using all major debit and credit cards. UK players, however, will be unable to use credit cards due to new regulations from the UKGC.

EWallets like Neteller and Skrill are available, and Pub Casino allows you to make deposits and withdrawals using Trustly, ecoPayz, and bank transfers. The minimum deposit is £10, and all payments are credited to your account immediately. The only currency available at Pub Casino is the British Pound.

Pub Casino does not charge any fees to players making deposits. Even if they wanted to, UK-licensed casinos could no longer charge additional fees. Please note that some payment methods may exclude you from being eligible to claim a bonus.

Pub Casino Withdrawal Speed

One of the things we’ve become used to seeing at L&L Europe casinos is fast withdrawals. It’s not uncommon for withdrawals to be processed on the same day – sometimes within just a few hours.

The minimum withdrawal at Pub Casino is also just £10. Be aware; your account must be fully verified before you can make a withdrawal for the first time. However, due to new online gambling regulations, UK players must verify their age and identity at account creation.

Once Pub Casino’s finance team has processed your withdrawal, you can expect the funds to land in your account within one to two working days. The time frame ultimately depends on which payment method you choose. EWallets and Trustly are generally the fastest.

Responsible gaming

Like all L&L Europe brands, Pub Casino does an excellent job regarding responsible gambling. When writing this casino review, we looked at what responsible gambling measures were available to players.

In line with UKGC regulations, the casino offers players the chance to set a variety of limits, including deposit limits, loss limits, wager limits, and session limits.

For those who want to take a short break from gambling, you can use the time-out feature, which closes your account for between 24 hours and six weeks. Your account will be automatically reopened when the predetermined time has elapsed.

You can also use the self-exclusion option if you believe online gambling has become a significant issue. This enables you to disable access to your casino account for a period ranging from 6 months to 5 years. If you choose to enter into self-exclusion, your account will not automatically reopen when the time has expired; you must contact the casino directly.

However, if you enter into a self-exclusion agreement at Pub Casino, it will also ban you from other brands operated by L&L Europe. This includes, for example, NoBonus Casino and All British Casino.

Customer support

Whether you’ve got questions about the minimum deposit required to claim a bonus, want to know if you can play live casino games using bonus funds, or want more information on the site’s generous welcome bonus, there’s always help available, thanks to the excellent customer support portal. Like all L & L Europe Ltd brands, Pub Casino offers customer support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Live chat is the easiest way of contacting the customer support team, and you’ll typically be connected with an operator in a minute or two. However, you can also reach them through email if you prefer. Email responses, however, can take up to 24 hours.

KYC

KYC ID check
Get your ID docs ready.

Pub Casino requires all players to complete a KYC check.

You will be required to submit a utility bill to confirm your address, a copy of your ID card, passport, or driving license to confirm your name – and you may be asked to prove you own the payment method you deposit with.

Please note that if you’re based in the UK, you must complete a KYC check before joining Pub Casino. While these KYC checks are annoying, they’re one of the many regulatory requirements Pub Casino faces. Once you’ve completed a KYC check, you’re unlikely to be made to do one again.

However, if you add new payment methods or win an unusually large amount of money, Pub Casino might ask you to upload additional verification documents. This is why we ALWAYS recommend submitting your verification documents when opening your account, as this can save a lot of time.

Website Experience and Features

Desktop and Mobile Gaming

Pub Casino’s desktop website features a clean and modern design, with intuitive navigation that makes it easy for players to find their favourite games, promotions, and support options – although the black and white colour scheme is a bit strange.

Instead of using vibrant colours and engaging graphics that create an inviting atmosphere, Pub Casino brand has displayed almost everything in black and white. While it doesn’t look awful, it does make browsing the different games harder than it should be, in our opinion.

Still, the game categories are well-organised, allowing players to quickly browse the vast selection of slots, table games, and live casino options. We also really like how there’s a search function as you can quickly find games by their name.

Although Pub Casino does not offer a dedicated mobile app, its website is fully optimised for mobile devices. Players can access the mobile-optimised site through any mobile, and the mobile site offers the same functionality and features as the desktop version. Visually, it’s almost identical. We just have a few questions on why they opted for the colour scheme – but it’s possible that will change in the future.

Brand games

Providers

Pub Casino offers games from a wide variety of software providers. For example, we expect to see games from Amatic, BTG, Blueprint Gaming, Elk, Eyecon, Hacksaw Gaming, IGT, Merkur, Inspired Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Hacksaw Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, Novomatic, Play’n Go – and many more.

Most live dealer games are powered by Evolution Gaming – the industry’s clear market leader. You’ll find a vast assortment of live casino games, video slots, video poker machines, Slingo games, and casino table games from the biggest names in the online gambling industry – with new game providers added regularly. Below, we’ll examine some of the online gaming options available at Pub Casino.

Slots

Pub Casino offers hundreds of slots – including classics, video slots, and progressives.

New releases are constantly hitting the shelves, with titles from leading game developers like Pragmatic Play, Blueprint Gaming, and Hacksaw Gaming. Below, we’ll look at a few of the most popular slots we saw when we logged into our Pub Casino account while writing this review.

Fishin’ Frenzy Even Bigger Catch

Fishin’ Frenzy Even Bigger Catch is a fantastic slot game that takes players on an aquatic adventure. It’s become insanely popular in recent years thanks to online streamers, and it’s also commonly found in high street bookmakers in the UK.

Leprechaun Goes Wild

Leprechaun Goes Wild is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot is packed with exciting features such as wilds, scatters, and free spins. The main attraction of the game is the free spins round, where wilds become “sticky” and re-triggers are possible, too!

Kathmandu

Kathmandu is a 5-reel, 9-payline game features captivating visuals and a soothing soundtrack, immersing players in the city’s rich culture. While the bonus offers the most win potential, Elk have managed to build a base game that is more than capable of dishing out big wins – so it’s a good all-round game, in our opinion!

Live Casino Powered By Evolution Gaming

Pub Casino’s live dealer section, powered by industry-leading Evolution Gaming, and Pragmatic Play LIVE is fantastic. As you’d expect, there’s a huge range of games – especially from Evolution Gaming – and you’ll find everything from classic table games, to live game shows and Lightning Roulette!

A wide variety of tables are available – all offering different betting limits and dealers – and most of their tables now offer multiple HD camera angles for you to choose from. You can also chat and interact with the dealers!

Please note; if you’ve claimed a welcome bonus promotion at Pub Casino, you can usually not use your bonus funds on live dealer games. There are occasional exceptions to this rule – but in general, always read the terms and conditions to ensure you don’t play any games you’re not supposed to!

Table Games and Video Poker

Pub Casino offers various casino table games for players. You’ll find plenty of classics like blackjack, roulette, and baccarat – many of which are available in different versions and variations. Pub Casino also offers many video poker titles, featuring well-liked games such as Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, and Bonus Poker.
Progressive Jackpots

Progressive Jackpots

Pub Casino’s progressive jackpot section offers an impressive array of games, allowing players to win huge amounts of money – without having to stake much! Here’s a couple of the most popular:

Divine Fortune

Divine Fortune is a popular progressive jackpot slot that transports players to the world of ancient Greek mythology. Featuring stunning visuals and a captivating soundtrack, this 5-reel, 20-payline game offers numerous bonus features, including free spins, expanding wilds, and the exciting Falling Wilds Re-Spins. 

There are three jackpots – although only one of these is a progressive. Still, it can reach high figures – and we’ve seen it as high as $300,000 in the past!

Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah is arguably one of the most famous progressive jackpot slots, known for its record-breaking payouts. Set in the African savannah, this 5-reel, 25-payline slot is renowned; it’s even in the Guiness Book of World Records! However, it’s the four-tier progressive jackpot that’s what makes the game really special. Hit the jackpot bonus round, and you could win the MEGA jackpot – often worth more than $10 million!

Sports Betting

Pub Casino’s sportsbook offers many betting markets for sports enthusiasts. There are tons of sports and events covered, and players can bet on everything from football, basketball, tennis, and horse racing to less-conventional markets like darts, eSports, and snooker.

Of course, you won’t find as many sports betting markets as you would at specialised bookmakers like Bet365, but the markets they offer should suit most punters.

The sportsbook at Pub Casino is designed with user-friendliness in mind. It’s straightforward to find markets and place bets, thanks to the player-focused navigation menu. If you want to place live bets, you’ll need to enter the dedicated “Live” area.

With competitive odds and a comprehensive selection of markets, such as money lines, point spreads, and over/under bets, Pub Casino’s sportsbook is a pretty decent effort, in our opinion.

About the Team and History

Pub Casino is part of the L&L Europe Ltd group of online casinos. If you browse nearby (at other online gambling websites they own), you will soon see they have a solid reputation. For example, a quick search in the forum will reveal plenty of big win pictures from our users – but you’ll also see people compliment the fast customer support they received.

Pub Casino is the group’s newest project – and we have no hesitation in recommending them to our users. The parent company has always been very responsive to us here at Casinomeister. They have been awarded online gambling licenses from the UK’s Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority.

More recently, some of their online casinos have even received approval to operate in the Swedish market – something made possible through their online gambling license from the Swedish Gambling Commission.

L&L Europe Group properties accept players from countries all around the world. However, they don’t accept players from Nicaragua, North Korea, Pakistan, Panama, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, and the United States.

Complaints and Track Record

On the whole, L&L Europe has a solid reputation here at Casinomeister. Our members love their sites, we love dealing with them – and it’s rare to see problems.

For example, take this post from Nate, where he articulates what many of our members think:

The L&L portfolio has significantly expanded, primarily & IMPO, because of Jan and his dedication to what he does. Jan is here in the morning, at night, and on weekends. Even if the man is on holiday, he tries to get queries sorted. Not many reps have the decency even to log in once a week.

I have signed up and played at many accredited casinos over the years. Responses are short, rushed, and scripted. Some queries can take five days without any feedback at top-rated casinos.

The L&L Group shines with its customer service. There is no arrogance or attitude from the staff; they are the friendliest I have encountered online. If something is amiss, I pop Jan a message, and he rectifies the issue. A special shout-out to Jan for all the generous promotions he always provides for members here – I’m pretty confident a few people here would agree with me!

With the L&L group having such a transparent, awesome guy at the helm – I am pretty confident that anyone who joins their brands will experience one of the best all-around experiences online. Jan and All British Casino didn’t win Rep and Casino of the Year for nothing – They are remarkable in what they do. I just thought I’d give some credit where it’s due.”
