Northern Lights Casino Review UK & Welcome Bonus

Not to be confused with the physical Northern Lights Casino in Minneapolis, this particular gaming mecca joined the party much more recently. Throwing down the gauntlet to a thousand and one existing casinos, the folks behind Northern Lights Casino clearly believed they had the perfect recipe for creating a gaming site with equal appeal for desktop and mobile gamers alike.  Suffice to say, it’s precisely the recipe so many have completely missed the mark with, so what’s the story with this Northern Lights Casino review? Read on and Casino Papa will share all!

Overview
Contrary to initial expectations, Northern Lights Casino doesn’t exactly go over the top when it comes to its overall theme and story. Instead, these guys claim to be something of a no-nonsense, no-garnish operator where the primary focus is on stunning HD gaming and plenty of pleasing bonus offers. Suffice to say, promises we have heard many times before – the question being whether or not Northern Lights Casino delivers on the goods.

Site Summary
In terms of design, appearance and the user interface providers, Northern Lights Casino seems to have hit the right balance. Quite a long way from the brightness and boldness you may have been expecting, everything is predominantly dark – black backgrounds with the usual colourful icons and banners. But as they say, their focus is apparently on quality HD gaming, so just as long as they get the job done on that side of things, additional visual garnish really isn’t necessary.

So onto the real meat of what’s on offer – the games. What immediately becomes apparent is the way in which Northern Lights Casino is focused extremely heavily on online slots. Not that this is a bad thing if slots are your thing – the range is quite simply enormous and features every popular title you could ever wish for.  On the flipside of the coin, those that join up with Northern Lights Casino looking for an abundance of casino action might find themselves disappointed. In fact, to head over to the ‘Casino’ tab is to somewhat get the feeling you’ve stumbled across an area of the website that isn’t finished yet.  You hit one of the rather sad looking three icons available and are summarily transported to another landing page, at which point you have to find your chosen game again.

Blackjack and roulette are available, but not exactly in abundance.

Still, sites like Northern Lights Casino are engineered with mobile gamers in mind, so it’s important to consider what’s on offer objectively from the perspective of the mobile market. We comprehensively tested Northern Lights Casino across a variety of iOS and Android devices and found the experience to be smooth, seamless and impressive on even low-power devices. They currently offer all new customers a free £5 no-deposit bonus, which is great for getting a feel for what’s on offer without actually having to deposit any money. That being said, the fact that it is subject to 100X wagering requirements is a little bit on the ridiculous side. There’s also a welcome package available with a total value of up to £500, but again, 30X wagering requirements mean you are going to have to hand a lot of your own cash over, before gaining access to it.

There are plenty of regular promotions and deposit bonus offers to check out – all of which are subject to the same 30X wagering requirements.

The fact that the Northern Lights Casino customer service page doesn’t list any specific opening times would lead you to believe that lines were operational 24/7.  If this is the case, there must have been something wrong during a handful of our tests – Northern Lights Casino turned out to be impossible to get hold of during antisocial hours. Not only this, but we found that email response times also could stand to be improved. There is also no live chat facility, but this tends to be somewhat standard with online casinos aimed primarily at mobile markets.

Other than this, we couldn’t find anything specifically negative about what’s on offer at Northern Lights Casino. But at the same time, it didn’t entirely stand out as the market’s undisputed leader either.

Best Features
As already touched upon, if you are out for a casino experience that focuses on mobile and is all about the slots, Northern Lights Casino probably will not let you down. There’s more than enough variety to keep even the most demanding slot-addicts happy for some time to say the least and overall site performance seems to be solid enough.

Conclusion
To be honest, if Northern Lights Casino was to market itself under a different name – as in one that doesn’t mention the word casino – it would probably score much higher.  The reason being that what you are essentially looking at here is a capable service provider offering access to a wide variety of excellent slot games, paying a rather pointless passing nod to casino table games. In addition, customer service could stand to be improved and wagering requirements are rather on the steep side for those making use of the available online slots bonus offers.

Cons

  • Very little depth or variety of casino games
  • 100X wagering requirements on the £5 bonus offer are extremely severe
  • Customer care team can be difficult to get hold of
  • No live chat facility
  • More information on the opening page would be useful

Pros

  • A genuinely excellent range of slots from leading providers
  • Sign up and test the waters without having to deposit a penny
  • Simple website design and user interface, ideal for mobile devices
