From the people behind other awesome online casinos like Casino Casino, All British Casino and Yeti Casino comes the confusingly-named No Bonus Casino. Does that mean you’re in for no bonus whatsoever?
Not quite. As you’ll see in the sections below, things are a little bit different around these parts: in place of a standard welcome bonus, the casino offers you a cheeky little cash back surprise, once you’re a fully signed up a member of the casino! We’ll dive into everything you need to know throughout this review.
That’s just how No Bonus Casino’s parent company, L&L Europe, roll – after all, they’re regular award winners: in 2019, they won both the Best Casino award (for All British Casino), as well as the Best Casino Group 2019 in the online casino industry awards! Now that’s the kind of stuff we (and you) like to see!
Getting setup and playing at No Bonus Casino takes only 30 seconds of your time, and just a few clicks! Here’s what you need to do:
Step 2:A form will slide down from above, asking you for -
Your email address
To set a password for the site
T confirm your password
To set your player currency - this will be pre-selected according to your location
To set your country - this will also be pre-selected according to your location
Step 3:On the next screen, you'll be asked for your gender - male or female, as well as your title - Mr, Mrs or Ms
a. Your first name and surname
b. Your date of birth
c. Your address details
d. Your mobile phone number
e. Don't miss the ‘click here to finalise your registration’ link!
Step 4:A form with several sliders will pop up. You'll need to -
Confirm you agree with the Terms and Conditions of the casino
You then have the choice to confirm you'd like to receive email and SMS marketing notifications from the casino. We always remember you toggle these to on, or you're certain to miss out on future goodies from the casino! You also have the option to change these marketing preferences later, from your player account.
Step 5:You'll be taken to the cashier screen to make your first deposit! Choose your preferred depositing method…
Step 6:That’s it! Follow the deposit process for the method you choose, and once it's finalised, you’re ready to get started at No Bonus Casino!
For more about bonus and wagering requirements, as well as details of how to withdraw, see sections below.
As we mentioned above, No Bonus Casino won’t offer you a welcome bonus…but it will offer you 10% cash back on your lost deposits, which have no wagering requirements, and you’ll receive this the next day.
If you lose your deposit money through playing the games, you receive 10% of it back. So, for example, if you deposit $30 and go through it all, then 24 hours later, you’ll receive $3 to your player account – with no wagering requirements.
Sounds good? We think so too. Here’s what you need to do to setup your cash back earnings:
To claim the welcome bonus, you need to:
Step 1:Register for a new player account at No Bonus Casino
Step 2:Make a deposit of at least $15 ($75 for bank transfer deposits)
Step 3:Start playing! You’ll earn cash back from your first lost deposit in 24 hours.
Obviously, if this sounds too good to be true, it’s because there are a few Terms and Conditions you should know about when claiming No Bonus Casino’s cash back offer:
There aren’t currently any bonus codes available for the No Bonus Welcome Bonus; you can read more about the Bonus’ Terms and Conditions here.
We think this is an interesting offer – after all, who doesn’t love a bit of cash back? This is especially great for you if you find it frustrating when you get all hyped up for playing at a casino, only to lose most of your cash. Still, the cash back offer is pretty generous, and even has no wagering requirements – something that all welcome bonuses have, and which can seriously reduce any winnings you may receive from a welcome bonus’ cash.
We’d say that this one’s for you if you’re not too fussed about welcome bonuses, and all of their other terms, like wagering requirements and so on. If, however, you feel the need for a welcome bonus instead of cash back, but really like what you see, then you should check out No Bonus Casino’s sister site, All British Casino, which has both a welcome bonus available and that cash back offer too!

Maybe No Bonus Casino should be renamed ‘no-nonsense casino’, as the way it approaches the main lobby layout is, well, very straightforward, and to our liking:
We especially liked that No Bonus Casino gives you clear options for the best games for your cash back earnings!
Otherwise, there are some nice sections for the most played games, top tournament games, as well as the individual game lobbies’ most popular games.
We really love it when a casino shows us what games other players are enjoying, as it shows us which games we should get started on first, rather than wade through everything on offer!
Otherwise, No Bonus Casino have these game categories to choose from:
That’s really a lot of gaming choices – we think both video slots and classic slots fans will be in their element, as would Live Gaming fans. Table Game fans will still have a lot of choice on offer (and Video Poker fans too), but these two sections aren’t as big as at other online casinos of similar sizes. We did like the cheeky lottery game added in there – it has been a while since we’ve seen lottery at an online casino!
But, if you do want a bit of guidance as to the games that are worth your time (especially to claim all that awesome cash back on!), then No Bonus casino gives you the lowdown on what other players are enjoying currently. At the time of writing, the top slots at No Bonus casino were – :

Although No Bonus Casino doesn’t state anywhere what their overall payout rate to players is, you can rest assured that, as a UKGC-regulated casino, the site has to regularly have their games audited for fairness. Therefore you can be certain this is happening behind the scenes.
However, if you’re really curious about each game’s payout rate, or even the casino’s overall payout rate, there’s a really easy (but a bit time consuming) way to work this out for yourself.
Click through to a game’s information/help/’?’/ section on the game screen itself (this section will vary in how it appears, depending on the provider powering it, but it will be there). Scroll until you find details of the RTP (Return To Player), which will be a percentage. This is the payout rate you’re looking for.
For the casino’s overall payout rate, just take all the games’ RTPs and average them out, we took 10 games at random and calculated their RTPs to get a 95.5% RTP for the casino overall. That means that No Bonus Casino is both safe and fair to play at, not to mention pretty generous to their players!

No Bonus Casino has a range of deposit and withdrawal options for CA players, which we were pretty impressed by!
No Bonus Casino is highly committed to making sure their players are safe and secure online. They’re regulated by two of the strictest authorities in the online gaming industry internationally, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, and the Malta Gaming Authority. This means you can rest assured you’re playing at a safe online casino that has to answer to several higher-ups, and jump through several regulatory hoops in order to stay online and accept players!
Otherwise, the No Bonus Casino site is completely SSL encrypted, meaning that all of the data you send to it – your payment data and personal details – is completely protected and unhackable.
In addition this, No Bonus Casino goes to several lengths to ensure that all players are playing responsibly, and should they develop problematic gambling behaviours, there are several support resources available for them to easily access: the site links to several support organisations for the footer, including GamCare, BeGambleAware.org, GamStop and the site’s own in-depth Responsible Gaming policy.
Otherwise No Bonus Casino encourages players to set a deposit limit for themselves during the signup process and makes it easy for them to do at a later date, from their player account, Players at No Bonus Casino can also easily self-exclude.
A final touch, to prove how No Bonus Casino safeguards its players, is that every player will be required to set themselves a session timer – from between 15-60 minutes, which will alert them as to how long they’ve been playing online in one sitting.
No Bonus Casino is a fabulous place for fans of mobile gaming, with not one but two options to keep them happy!
There’s a fantastic mobile site, which is a carbon copy of the desktop site, just optimised to fit on a smaller screen, as well as two dedicated apps – for iOS and Android devices.
The mobile site is super easy to navigate, with all of the same options as you’ll see on desktop – all of the games, all of the cash back, the cashier and more, and this the same across the apps too.
The Games worked perfectly across both platforms, and we didn’t notice any missing (which is always a worry with mobile versions of casinos). Actually, everything worked really nicely across both apps and the mobile site – there were no lags, crashes or battery drains, and we could easily swipe, select and scroll to our heart’s content.
We tried out the mobile site and the apps (where applicable) across iOS, Android and Windows phones and tablets, and were impressed with the way the site (and the respective apps) handle these.
As a more stripped-back ‘no bonus’ sort of casino, No Bonus Casino doesn’t seem to have a loyalty club on offer. That’s a shame. We’ve reached out to the casino and have asked them to update us if and when this ever changes – in the meantime, you can focus on getting your cash back!
No Bonus Casino boasts that every one of their players is a VIP….but, in practice, there’s no extra VIP club with offers or other benefits.
As with the loyalty club, we’ve asked No Bonus Casino to update us if this ever changes. If it does, we’ll look into what the VIP club has to offer players, as well as how to get into it! We’ll then update this review accordingly – so stay tuned!
As every member is a VIP (or so says the casino), they offer only VIP support…which doesn’t look too different to their regular support.
There’s a phone line, an email address and a live chat, all of which are open 8:00am – 1:00am CET (GMT+1). The live chat was pretty good and we were connected to Stefan in under 30 seconds, and he answered all of our questions helpfully and quickly.
While there doesn’t seem to be an FAQ linked anywhere on the site, a quick Google search sent us to it. It’s a bit weird that it doesn’t appear anywhere on the No Bonus Casino site but once you find it, it’s actually good: all of the questions are grouped together by theme (casino, banking, technical etc), with in-depth answers underneath each section. We didn’t find it to be an exhaustive FAQ list, but what was there was serviceable enough, just make sure you actually link to this page in the future, No Bonus Casino! We don’t like having to scramble around (and even navigate off your site) to find these answers!
No Bonus Casino is an odd one – on the one hand, we really love the idea of cash back on all losses; on the other hand, we know that a lot of our players really love (and feel very rewarded by) a solid welcome bonus.
Still, if we’re looking at things objectively (which we are), a welcome bonus often has a lot of funny terms and strict wagering requirements, meaning you can actually lose more money than you get, and make no winnings. With cash back, you get, well, cash back, on your losses. There’s something really cool about that.
Still, there’s a lot on offer here, from ranges of games from massive providers, to a cool all-over experience, we think if a welcome bonus is a non-negotiable for you, then maybe check out a casino like All British Casino, from the same parent company as No Bonus Casino, but with a welcome bonus in addition to cash back. Otherwise, No Bonus Casino will be a fantastic place for most players.
It’s totally legit. It’s regulated by both the UKGC and the MGA, and even provides players a whole lot of support organisations for them to access should they need support. For a full list of these, check out the ‘Safety and Security’ section, above.
No Bonus Casino also insists, as a UKGC-regulated casino, that players have to verify their ID and proof of address before requesting a withdrawal. The casino addresses this in an FAQ, and all you need to do is send certain identity documents to the [email protected] email address or by live chatting and sending these documents to the customer support team. You can read more about this process in the FAQ titled ‘How do I validate accounts so I can withdraw my winnings?’
They take 1 working day, across every banking method on offer (see more about this in the ‘Banking methods’ section, above). That’s something that really impressed us, especially for debit and bank transfer withdrawals.
Additionally, you’ll have to complete the ID and address verification process before No Bonus Casino will even allow you to access the cashier’s withdrawals section. See more about that in the FAQ above this one.
It’s easy – you just need to get in touch with No Bonus Casino’s customer support, and they’ll help you through the process.
You also have the option to either take a break from the casino or even self exclude for up to 5 years, all from your player account – the process is available under the Responsible Gaming section of your player account.
At the time of writing, there are no No Bonus Casino bonus codes available to players.
But – this can always change! You should always check your SMSs and emails from the casino, which might contain goodies for you!
Go to the cashier section and choose ‘withdrawal’. Then, continue the process until you see your withdrawal request has been accepted.
No Bonus Casino won’t allow you to access the cashier unless you’ve verified your ID and proof of address. See more about this in the ‘How do I withdraw at No Bonus Casino?’ FAQ, above.
The whole thing about No Bonus Casino is that there aren’t any welcome bonuses or casino bonuses – there’s cash back instead. Check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above, for more information on what you can expect and how this works.
Again, there isn’t a welcome bonus at No Bonus Casino: check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above, for details of the Terms and Conditions of the cash back on offer.
It’s the same as No Bonus’s standard process: check out the ‘how do I withdraw at No Bonus Casino?’ FAQ, above, for more information.
Remember, although there are no wagering requirements on your cash back, you’ll still need to have verified your ID and proof of address at No Bonus Casino before you withdraw – see more details about this above.
There currently aren’t any free spins offers available but you never know – this could always change!
For that reason, you should keep an eye on all of the marketing communications – SMS and email – you might receive from the casino. You never know – they might just break that ‘No Bonus’ semi-promise of theirs to spoil you with some free spins!
