Have you heard of Yebo Casino? They’re a newer online casino focused on the South African market.
I’ve reviewed several South African online casinos recently. Most of them are the same in terms of the games, promotions and banking options they offer. But, there are a few differences I’ve spotted– whether it’s the size of the bonus rollover, fees and other subtle, yet important numbers.
These are what have made the biggest difference in which SA casinos we’re recommending to our South African readers.
So… do we recommend Yebo Casino… or one of the other guys?
Keep reading and we’ll tell you.
They don’t share any information on their website (that I could find), nor does any review I’ve read thus far share anything about them. This seems to be a trend for South African casinos. Neither Springbok or Thunderbolt Casino share anything about themselves, either.
What I do know is that Yebo Casino has been online since 2014. And, according to their affiliate program, they’re connected with Punt Casino.
They’re licensed and regulated in Curacao.
Average, from what I can tell. They have 3 complaints on AskGamblers.com, one of which is resolved. Yebo responded to one and said they already resolved this problem by email; the customer was only posting on AG because they didn’t agree with the result.
Who knows who’s right or wrong in that case?!
In the 2nd complaint, Yebo accused the player of being an advantage or abusive player – not only at their casino, but at other RTG casinos, too. They didn’t provide proof when AskGamblers.com asked for it, though, so the case is unresolved.
And that’s it – I didn’t find anything else. They’re not accredited or endorsed anywhere, but I didn’t find any scam warnings or blacklist listings, either. Surprisingly, ThePogg.com hasn’t reviewed them yet, either.
Overall, I’d say their reputation is okay – or, about as okay as can be considering how new the casino is and that no one knows anything about who runs the casino.
Yebo Casino accepts players from the following countries:
You can contact Yebo Casino 24/7/365 using the following channels:
You can use the following options for depositing to and cashing out your account:
|Min Deposit||Min With||Deposit Time||With Time||Currency|
|EasyEFT||R25||R500 (R100 fee)||Instant N/A||ZAR|
|Neteller||R25||R500||Instant 48/72 hours||ZAR/EUR|
|Skrill||R25||R300||Instant 48/72 hours||ZAR|
|Ecopayz||R25||R500||Instant 48/72 hours||ZAR|
|Wire||N/A||R500 (R100 fee)||Instant 3-7 days||ZAR|
They have an odd rule where the maximum you can cash out is 20x your accumulated deposits IF your total deposits (lifetime) equal less than R1000. Here’s the example they gave to explain it:
Example: accumulated deposits R200, winnings R5000, withdrawal request R5000, effective payment R4000 only and R1000 are reduced from the player’s balance.
This is a horrible rule. It shouldn’t matter how much you deposit. If I walked into MGM or Treasure Island (or ANY brick and mortar casino) spent $200 and won $5,000, I’d be able to walk out with $5,000.
It should be the same here.
They have a couple offers for new customers:
The playthrough on this offer – and all the bonuses below (unless stated otherwise) – is 40x the deposit and bonus. This is steep, and keep in mind that’s for slots. All other games will have different requirements. Here’s what Yebo states in their terms:
Please note that craps, baccarat, bingo, pai gow poker, poker table, roulette, scratch card and sic bo are excluded from the coupon playthrough unless otherwise stated.
The bonus expires within 30 days. They don’t specify what the rollover is on the winnings from the free spins, but you can probably assume it’s the 40x from above. It also looks like the max you can cash out is R1000.
Here are the details behind their evergreen offers:
They have a VIP program, but it’s by invite only. If you want to join their program, you’ll need to send an email to [email protected]
They use Real Time Gaming software. This means you’ll have 130+ games to choose from, depending on how you play their games (download, instant play or mobile).
Unlike most Real Time Gaming casinos, Yebo doesn’t list all the games they offer in their casino. They also don’t make their instant play casino accessible without creating an account first.
So, the following list of RTG games came from our database of games. We’ve included our thoughts along with each section.
A common complaint of mine about Real Time Gaming is that, unlike (legit) software providers who work with legal online casinos, they don’t have licensed slots. For example, I like playing The Dark Knight, Jurassic Park, The Flintstones, Iron Man and Monopoly – all slots you’ll find in a Las Vegas or Microgaming-powered casino. But you won’t find those at a RTG-powered casino.
That’s not to say that their slots aren’t fun. I’ve played several – most recently I played Bubble Bubble. It was entertaining enough that after 30 mins of playing, I had to pry myself away to write this review.
You’ll find plenty of themes, too, ranging from cars to animals to Las Vegas and loads more. This is across all your standard variants, including 3, 5 and 6-reel classic and video slots. These slots will have features, bonus rounds, multipliers and other fun things as well.
According to their promotions page they run free slot tournaments every day, too. This can be a great way to have some fun – for free – while still having the opportunity to win some money.
One of the perks to playing at a Real Time Gaming casino is that they offer loads of table games. What makes up the majority of their selection are blackjack games – there are usually 8-12+ at every casino. On top of that, you usually have a dozen or so other table games.
You can play their Caribbean Holdem and Poker progressives, too. They don’t have the jackpots that their progressive slots do, but it’s something to play for if you’re into playing for jackpots.
They have 15 video poker games. That doesn’t include their multi-hand variants, which come in 1, 3, 10 and 52-hand.
Not much to add here, except that it’s nice to see they offer different roulette variants. Especially the French variant, as that is the best one in terms of player odds.
You can play by download (Windows), instant play (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) and mobile (iOS and Android). If you want the most games offered, you’ll want to download their software (if you’re on Windows).
They don’t have their instant play casino open to the public – not that I could find, at least. This sucks because at other RTG casinos you can play their games first (for free) to see if you like them. You don’t get to do that here.
They say their mobile casino uses HTML5, which means most modern smartphones and tablets should be compatible. That includes Blackberry, and I wouldn’t hesitate to try Windows mobile devices, too. You can go to their mobile page at m.yebocasino.co.za to see if your device works.
Here are the few things that stood out to me:
Here are some things I don’t like about their casino:
It’s not because they don’t share information about themselves, or because they have a high playthrough or ridiculous limit for people who haven’t deposits at least R1000.
It’s the combination of all these things.
They’re not that much different, but Springbok or Thunderbolt Casino are better options. They have the same games, and neither casino shares anything about their company. But they have more offers, and the playthroughs on their offers are more reasonable. That earns them a slight edge over Yebo.
So, my recommendation is to check one of them out instead.
