Zodiac Casino Test – Quality Online Casino or a Dud?
Zodiac Casino is one of the most prominent online casinos around at the moment, so we wanted to test this site for ourselves to see whether it passes our quality test, or whether it is another dud that should be avoided.
We looked into all aspects of the site, from the safety it provides for its players, the licencing it holds, welcome bonuses and other rewards it offers, and of course the quality of the games and the support it provides.
Our goal with this test, as with all of our other casino tests, is to provide anyone that is looking for information about the casino before signing up all they need to know to be able to make an informed decision.
Overall, we found Zodiac Casino to be a very solid casino, and would highly recommend it to any players looking for a safe casino to play at, with plenty of game options. Here is a quick summery of what we liked, but please read our more detailed breakdown of our test below also:
- Fully licensed
- Excellent 24/7 support available in many languages. Live chat also available
- Run on the robust Microgaming software
- Massive range of over 500 games
- Available on both desktop computer and mobile devices
- Innovative Welcome Bonus
- Good loyalty program
- No live dealer games
Licensing – 10/10
You should always play at an online casino that is fully licensed, so many new players seem to ignore this simple yet important element. Fortunately Zodiac Casino is well covered in this area, carrying licenses for the UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission), the MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) and KGC (Kahnawake Gaming Commission). All of these licenses are only handed out to reputable casino sites, so this is a definite plus for Zodiac Casino.
There are some countries that are restricted from accepting new players at Zodiac Casino: USA, France, Italy, Ireland, Australia, Cyprus, Singapore and Taiwan
Welcome bonus – 8/10
Although this is not the biggest Welcome bonus you will find at online casinos by any means, we like the way that Zodiac Casino has structured their bonus for new players. You basically receive $500 in bonuses over your first 5 deposits. But it is their first deposit bonus which really makes this Welcome Bonus stand out from the competition.
On your 1st deposit you only need to deposit $1, and you will get 80 spins on the Mega Moolah slot game (or any other game you want to play on the site). The 80 spins are allocated as a $20 deposited into your account, and each spin is worth $0.25. These 80 spins you receive will give you a good opportunity to play some of the games and get a feel for the casino.
Also over the next four deposits you can get the following:
- 2nd deposit – 100% match up to $100
- 3th deposit - 50% match up to $80
- 4th deposit – 50% match up to $150
- 5th deposit – 50% match up to $150
Gaming software – 10/10
Zodiac Casino is run on the Microgaming software, which we regard as being the best available. Not only are Microgaming casinos very robust and fast, but they also provide a massive range of games too.
Over 500 Games for desktop computers – 9/10
If you play at Zodiac Casino on your desktop computer, you will find over 500 games available to play (we actually counted 510 in total). All the popular games are available, such as Avalon, Avalon II, Thunderstuck and Thunderstruck II. Then you have a choice of 16 progressive jackpot games to play, including the “millionaire maker” Mega Moolah.
If you like to play table games there are many different variations of both Blackjack and Roulette, and
Live dealer games – 0/10
At the time of testing, Zodiac Casino did not have any live dealer games available. This was a bit disappointing as we like to have the option of live dealer games.
Design & Performance – 9/10
The site has an interactive, colorful design. The main language used on Zodiac Casino is English, but it is available in several other languages too (French, German, Danish, Swedish, Spanish and Finnish), so they do cater for a wide range of players from all over the world.
The performance of the casino was excellent. We tested on both desktop computer and on our mobile phone, and we found the speed to be excellent on both.
Customer support – 10/10
This was one area that we really felt Zodiac Casino stood out from a lot of other online casino operators. Their customer support was not only friendly, but very knowledgeable too. They definitely know the intricacies of their product and provide efficient solutions to any issues we threw at them.
They have several different ways of contacting their support, including phone, email and live chat, all available 24/7/365. That’s what you want from a customer support, especially when you are dealing with money.
Loyalty Program and V.I.P. Points – 9/10
Any new member that signs up at Zodiac Casino will be enrolled in the Casino Rewards VIP loyalty program. Most bigger casino groups offer some kind of loyalty program, but we are quite impressed by this program run by the Casino Rewards group (of which Zodiac Casino is a member).
Every time you play at Zodiac Casino, you’ll receive V.I.P. loyalty points (100 points= $1 in chips)., and you can redeem these in your account any time you like. Any points you earn at Zodiac Casino can also be used at any of the 30 online casinos that Casino Rewards operates.
There are also a lot of ongoing promotions for Casino Rewards members, so you will be notified of ongoing events as and when they happen.
Mobile Casino available – 10/10
Mobile is huge for so many things these days, and online casinos is exactly the same. It offers a level of convenience for any player, so it is very important for any big casino brand to offer their sites on mobile too.
Zodiac Casino mobile is very easy to use, and as mentioned earlier in our test results, it runs very fast as well. The games look amazing on a mobile device, many of the newer ones are in HD as well, so they are very clear and easy to read.
Overall score – 9/10
We have been very impressed by Zodiac Casino. It is run very professionally (the Casino Rewards group is one of the biggest casino operators around, so they certainly have the experience and knowledge), and they offer a lot of quality to their users.
The one negative point about the casino is that it does not have any live dealer games, but for us that was not a deal breaker. But everything else to do with the casino was a joy to see and use. This casino is now definitely very high up on our recommended list.
