It’s sort of funny …but in an industry like this one – especially online – the guys who do it right stand out so clearly amongst the rest.
That’s the case with Omni Casino.
Before reviewing Omni, I reviewed a few other casinos who focus on the South African market. These casinos were okay, but aren’t worth bragging about. Other casino review sites agreed with me, giving them average ratings.
What a night and day difference reviewing Omni. They have a stellar reputation across the web, high ratings and a thumbs-up from most major review sites we check out opinions against.
The bottom line – you should join Omni Casino right now if you’re in the market for a new online casino.
But, if you need more information – and nobody would blame you if you did – you’ll find everything you need to know below.
They’re owned and operated by Peak Interactive N.V. They’ve been in business since November 1997 which, at the time of this review, is about 6-months shy of their 20th birthday.
Omni has won multiple awards between (online) gambling magazines, review portals and gaming associations. You can see them all at there website at www.omnicasino.com.
They’re licensed in Curacao, and their games are tested regularly by TST.
The following countries are restricted from joining Omni Casino:
It looks like they have an excellent reputation.
On AskGamblers.com, they have only 3 complaints (after 20 years in business!), with 1 complaint unresolved. They have an 8.59 rating and are a Certified Casino.
They have a 9/10 on CasinoListings.com. They’re also a WizardOfOdds.com Endorsed Casino as well as an Accredited Casino on Casinomeister.com (and have been since 1999).
Finally, ThePogg.com recommends them, and has given them a 7.9/10 rating.
Overall, they have an outstanding reputation within the industry (and in some instances outside of it, such as the awards won from Playboy Magazine). I’ve not seen any major complaints or scams worth reporting, either.
You can get in touch with Omni support using the following:
Your options include:
All options can also be used to withdrawal EXCEPT FOR Paysafe Card and Ukash.
For all non-progressive cash outs, the max you can cash out is $10,000 USD per month. Anything larger will be paid out in installments (at $10k per month) until your balance is paid in full.
The exception is progressive jackpots. These are paid in larger installments, with the amount varying based on how much you’ve won.
Here are the different payment plans (jackpot / monthly payment):
I’m not a fan of monthly payments, especially as little as $10,000 per month, but at least they make an exception for progressives.
They also charge a re-seed fee for a couple of their progressive slot machines. These range from $50,000 to $100,000, which seems absolutely ridiculous. I’ve not seen the re-seed fee used elsewhere – although I wouldn’t be surprised if other casinos use them – so I’m not sure what the standard is.
But $50-$100,000 can make up a large chunk of the prize money, so it seems a little unfair.
The other thing I don’t care for – they charge a $5 monthly maintenance fee if you do not log into your account for 90+ days.
They do, and it’s called the ‘God Size Welcome Bonus.’ This is an $1,818 bonus with 118 free spins. It’s spread out over your first 5 deposits, like so:
Before you can claim the next offer (#2, #3, etc.), you’ll need to have a balance of less than $5. Otherwise, the bonus and/or any winnings can be voided at Omni’s discretion.
Each bonus has a 40x playthrough on the deposit + bonus. Any winnings from the free spins has a 40x (total) playthrough. You can only play slots and keno, too. And, there are several slots that are restricted. So, you’ll want to read their terms and conditions carefully before you start this promotion.
Games you cannot play on this offer (or just about any of their other offers) include: table games, card games, video poker and arcade games. This includes, but is not limited to: roulette, baccarat, blackjack, jacks or better, pai gow, sic bo, craps, red dog and casino hold’em.
The max you can bet is $6 (per slot machine).
If you don’t want the offer above, you can claim the high roller bonus instead. Make a deposit of $1,000 or more (on your first deposit), and you’ll get an extra $500.
The playthrough on this is an even $15,000. The max wager is $6, and the same game exclusions from the bonus above applies.
Here are their evergreen offers.
This is an interesting promotion that they’ve been running every month since 2011. It looks like they guarantee you’ll win as long as you qualify.
Here’s an idea of how this works:
Every (qualifying) day you play, you’ll be awarded with one ‘Hot Seat Point.’ The more days you play, the hotter your seat gets. The hotter your seat gets, the more money you win.
Here’s what that looks like:
From the sounds of it, if you play for 28 consecutive days YOU WILL WIN $500. However, you need to read the terms and conditions. The most important part is this:
**A minimum of $1,250 in “total wagers” placed per gaming day is required to earn one (1) “Hot seat point.”
That’s how you “qualify.”
So, this promotion isn’t as simple as showing up, placing a bet and collecting your point. You need to spend $1,250 before you can collect your point, and more than $35,000 to collect enough for the $500 prize.
Certain games and/or bets won’t count toward this promotion. On the upside, none of the winnings from this promotion have a rollover before you can cash out.
This offer is for video poker players on Fridays and Saturdays. Get a royal flush in hearts and they will double the payout up to $1,000. This is available on all single line video poker games.
They run offers every day of the week. They date these offers, so it’s possible these change, but I don’t know for sure since I haven’t visited their site in a while. Here are their offers from the past week to give you an idea of what could be available:
Since these may change, you should bookmark their weekly promotions page to keep tabs on what offers are available on there website.
Sunday Rain – Start the week off with a bonus. Every Sunday you can get a 50% match up to $115. All you have to do is make a deposit of $20 or more.
That’s it for their evergreen offers. This is a pretty good list of deals. It gives you a reason to come back and play every day.
I recommend reading their general terms and conditions, too. Their standard playthrough is 25x the deposit plus bonus, which is better than the welcome bonus playthrough above, but still average to a tad high in comparison to other casinos.
They have several game restrictions, too, which is important to know about BEFORE you opt-in for a bonus.
Their VIP program is called Club O. There are 3 levels to this program:
The first thing I noticed is that, as you move up in levels, you’ll need fewer points for every $1 in cash back you want to claim. Silver level members will need 100 points, while Gold needs 85 and Platinum 75. You earn points at the rate of 1 point per $10 wagered.
From there the perks you can earn include the following:
And more. You can see everything here on their website.
They use Playtech software. This means you’ll have 175+ games to choose from. Playtech covers all the bases from slots to blackjack, which they list under the following categories:
I’ll be listing some examples of games you can play from most of these categories in the next section.
Here are some of the games you can play, and any thoughts we may have about them.
If you’re into playing the newest games, this is the section to bookmark. Notice the Top Gun, Space Invaders and Gladiator slots. Not sure if those had to be licensed, but all 3 are from classic movies and video games.
Depending on where you look, these may be listed under slots -OR- slots and video slots. Some of your options include:
The wife and I play A LOT of slots whenever we go to Las Vegas. Without a doubt, our favorite machines are the licensed titles revolving around our favorite movies, video games and TV shows. There are several of those here, such as Marilyn Monroe, Jekyll & Hyde, Gladiator and Rocky.
Then, you have fun themes that remind you of (licensed) movies or games, such as The Winnings of Oz.
Between the themes, licensed titles, video, classic and 3 and 5-reel machines, chances are there’s a slot machine for everyone – even if you don’t usually like playing slots.
It’s great to see some live games. I’ve reviewed a few other South African-focused casinos recently, and neither of those casinos offered live dealer games. This automatically gives Omni a leg up.
Depending on where you look, they’ll have these games listed under either the table games and card games headings or under the blackjack, roulette and others headings.
I want to show you all the variations you can play, so I’m going to show you the latter:
I like all the different blackjack and roulette variants. This is definitely something you won’t find at other South African online casinos. And the best part is, it doesn’t come at the expense of having other table games. While Omni doesn’t have the biggest selection, they cover all the basics. And I think that’s going to satisfy 90+ percent of the people who play here.
They cover lots of options here, which is great to see. One thing I don’t see, though, are 100-hand options. I’m also surprised not to see more multi-hand variants for each game rather than one 50-hand variant for one machine and then a 25-hand variant for a completely different one.
I’m not into these sorts of games, but with titles like Heads or Tails, Rock-Paper-Scissors or licensed titles, such as Pink Panther and Rocky, I could see myself giving these a shot.
Overall, they offer a wide assortment of games. I can’t see anything obvious that’s missing. The only people that will be unhappy with this casino, I think, are those who have a very specific game (thus software provider) in mind.
Their casino is accessible by download or your browser (instant play). This means that players on Windows, Mac and Linux should be able to play here.
I get the feeling that there are probably more games available via download than on their instant play casino. So, if you’re feeling a little underwhelmed by their browser games, then check out the download instead.
While their casino appears to be somewhat mobile responsive, it doesn’t look like they have any mobile compatible games. When I tried to check their website from my phone, I got a popup that suggested I check out their sister casino (CaribicCasino.com), instead.
That’s disappointing. At the same time, at least now you know – in case that’s a deal killer – so you can sign-up there instead. It looks like they have a good reputation, too.
Here are some of the things I like most:
Here are a few things I don’t quite care for:
Absolutely. I’ve reviewed a few Real Time Gaming powered South African casinos recently, and they pale in comparison to what Omni has to offer in terms of promotions and games.
Then there’s their reputation. That alone has to make you think twice about choosing one of the other guys – with an average reputation, at best – over Omni.
The bottom line – give Omni Casino a try. Everyone recommends them.
