N1 Casino is now in the Baptism by Fire. They have a pretty massive portfolio of games from no less than 25 software providers. Licensed by the MGA and with a sister casino Lady Hammer - so far, they have been doing a pretty good job.

Sorry, no UK.

They have been listed in the Grey Zone for about ten months with few complaints. We have now agreed to place them into the Baptism by Fire section where you guys can test and give your comments, criticisms, kudos, complaints and suggestions. Once they pass, they will become an Accredited Casino at Casinomeister.

You can read their review here: N1 Casino Review

You can sign up directly here: N1 Casino

And we all know Homerbert, their casino rep. :D

60 day BBF - good luck!! :thumbsup:

Hiya!

Thank you very much Bryan!

Guys, I'm here to help with anything, so just ask if you have any problems.

Some key information important for any player:

KYC - yes, according to MGA rules. Usually it is ID + proof of payment. Verification speed - hour or so, depends on volume of work CS people have. If you want to be verified quicker - just pop in the chat, say hello, and ask to verify your account :)

Payout speed - same as verification. Internal goal - under 30 minutes. Usually it took no more than 2 hours. In some cases where we have something suspicious it can be sent for additional checks, but it is rare cases, and anyway we speak about hours, not days :D

Max bet with active bonus - 5 EUR and currency eq. Please make sure to read bonus terms. If something is not clear there - just ping and I'll explain or change the terms :D

Other than that - have a great evening everyone.

Br,

Vitali

Interesting that N1 is going to try and be accredited... I only play at one other site in the Direx N. V group. Not many sites I play at have deposit bonuses and lately, the slots are killing me so any extra playtime would be nice!

I was reading your T & C and the bonus terms seem fine as long as those games are blocked if you are on a bonus. There is one term that seems off though in the Bonus Wagering Terms...

3: Both the bonus and the winnings will be removed once the bonus expires.
That is badly worded as it sounds like if you are to win and get up to say 500 CAD from a 50 CAD start with the 100% first part welcome bonus and finish wagering, all of the winnings are gone so you are left with 50 CAD. :p

I will not use the bonus anytime because you have to wager it 50x

Bonus and free spins must be wagered 50 times before player can order a withdrawal;

Hi, one question: are Dutch players allowed? According to my info they are no longer allowed to play at Lady Hammer, unless this was changed recently. Note: the casino accepts the Dutch payment method iDeal.

I'm fairly certain a popular Twitch streamer who plays here has a welcome offer here that is 200% and that has a 40x wager if you wanted something with better wager

I've played at N1, verification was fast enough and withdrawals are very quick. Website is laid out well and easily filterable by provider etc.

I got a bit of flack for nominating Direx NV in the Casinomeister awards, but I will defend myself and them.

Pros: N1 (and other Direx) offer CAD dollars to play with, they offer Ecopayz for deposits and withdrawals - and to be honest I like the game selection best. Canadians, as you know have a lot of providers banned and N1 offers pretty much every provider available to us (minus Quickspin and Push).

Cons: 50x bonus wagering is steep. My only other complaint would be the potential of bonus bans for "abuse". N1 offers two weekly reload bonuses and a pretty huge welcome bonus - I would really not be happy if winnings were taken away because of this rule in the T&C
  1. At the Website casino it's forbidden to abuse the bonus offers available. If any such cases come to light, the casino reserves the right to seize any winnings gained as a result of abusing the bonus offers and disable the option of using any bonuses for that account in future.
I wish you luck in accreditation @homerbert

Is the wagering for bonuses, 50x bonus + deposit? Maybe I'm reading it wrong

Most Direx casinos have a bonus ratio percentage they use as a metric to gauge whether the player is a bonus abuser. They generally exclude the welcome offer as well when it comes to calculating this ratio, no idea if N1 does the same. There biggest twitch streamer almost always uses 300% bonus on each deposit

  1. Please note that by depositing via Paysafecard, Neteller or Skrill only NetEnt games are available to players from Germany because а due to Malta Gaming Authority regulation.
Grammar is wrong here.

Some games on your list that do not count towards wagering I believe do not exist anymore ex dark knight....

Also, in this day and age of paperless bills, why are casinos still asking for a copy of paper utility bill for proof of address. I signed up but cannot provide a utility bill. I get everything on my email. Please advise.

Also, wagering deposit 3x before you are able to withdrawal is steep. Sometimes you win at the very beginning of your session and it would be nice to cash out.

Hey Sonict!

Thank you very much for your feedback - we will rephrase it to be more clear! :)

Hey Mouche12!

Ladyhammer is still on Curacao license (but we almost ready to switch on MGA), but N1 is under MGA - so yes, dutch customers accepted.

Oh wow... I didn't notice that 3x wagering of your deposit before you can cash out part. Right there, it makes it a lot more likely that the casino will win in the end if you had a lucky break in the beginning, but after you played enough to be able to cash out with the rule that is there, it might not be enough to make you want to cash out! If I hit well on other sites and I know I am not at 1x wagering yet and balance is more than the starting amount, I get it over 1x and then stop since I'd rather be ahead by something instead of nothing!

That part right there will not make me play there often as the RNG can make it so I would be lucky to get 3x the deposit and have an amount worth cashing out if I get decent play. :/

Hello Helafast!

Thank you very much for detailed review and feedback!

Quickspin and pushgaming will be available at N1 soon :)

Bonus abuse/ bonus ratio etc. Well, yes, our system shows bonus ratio of each customer. But you must understand that we never bonus ban anyone just for bonus ration. We are more about gameplay and betting patterns, not about bonus ratio.

And I want to confirm and state that to date there was ZERO confiscation due to stated rule. We reserve the right, but we never applied this rule. And hopefully will never apply. If you made a deposit and got bonus for which you eligible - how the heck we can confiscate your win? If we think you're bonus abuser - our job to switch bonuses for you and inform you. So in short - no worries here mate.

And thanks a lot of wishing luck!

Hey Throwaway10825!

WR is always x bonus. IMO - when you make WR for both deposit+bonus - it is already dodgy. Therefore any bonus we list WR - it is just for bonus.

Hey again Sonict!

This rule is usually explained like 'AML protection' obviously and honestly it have nothing to do in order to protect from AML. But sometimes, for some customers, we must apply it. I'll make you two examples, where this rule will be applied, and where not.

When we apply this rule to customer:

Mark registered, made 1000 EUR deposit via skrill, made 5 bets 1 EUR each on blackjack, and requested withdrawal back to skrill.

We will request x3 because I can't see how customer 'just come to play'. It's maybe abusing statuses at skrill, maybe some kind of money laundering. There will be not only x3 applied, but many further checks.

When we do not apply this rule to customer:

Jonathan registered, made 1000 EUR deposit via skrill, made 5 bets 10 EUR each and won 500 EUR. Jonathan requested WD and we will not apply this rule - Jonathan got lucky, he played games with regular betting patterns, and it is obvious that customer thinks that 500 EUR win is enough profit for him.

Saying this I must admit that while I completely understand how it must work - sometimes CS guys can do mistake. We do constant training, so chances of such mistake are pretty small, but still. If you ever will face such trouble - just LMK and I'll fix it.

Thanks for explaining how it would work, @homerbert I know one other accredited casino used to have a "wager your deposit 2x" rule and people questioned about it and it seems like your answer is the same... This is a good thing that it is just there to make sure the actual people who are trying to AML are caught and not legit players. If I really had to play though my deposit 3x everytime, it would cease to be fun since I would worry if I am even going to be lucky enough to end up with something. Glad to know that this is a "case by case" thing. :)
