Brought to you by Genesis Global, AKA the people who see casino a little bit differently: if you’ve ever heard of and played at brands like Casino Gods, Kassu, Genesis or Casino Joy (among many, many others), you’ll know that there’s a lot of awesomeness in store for you at Spela Casino: games galore, double welcome bonuses (more about those below) and an all-over great time.
You’ll probably be able to tell, but Genesis Global are actually regular award-winners for their casinos – and it’s not really a surprise as to why this is.
Getting setup and playing at Spela Casino takes only 30 seconds of your time, and just a few clicks! Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1:Navigate to Spela.com, and click ‘Play Now’:
Step 2:A form will pop up, asking you for -
a. A username for the site
b. Your email address
c. A password - this has to be at least 8 characters and contain both numbers and letters
Step 3:On the next screen, you'll be asked for -
a. Your first and last names
b. Your gender - male or female
c. Your birth date
d. Your country (this will be pre-filled according to your location)
e. Your address - type in the first line of your address or postcode, and the form will autofill the rest of your address, choose the correct address, or manually fill in the information if you prefer.
f. Your player currency (this will also be pre-filled according to your location)
g. Your mobile number
h. You’ll also need to tick the box saying you're happy to receive marketing communication from the casino - we always recommend this, or you'll definitely miss out on future goodies from the casino!
Step 4:You'll then be taken to the cashier, to make your first deposit! Pay attention to the ‘I want a bonus’ box, which will be important in claiming your welcome bonus (see more about this, below).
Step 5:Next, choose an amount you want to deposit (use the suggested amounts by clicking on the buttons or add in your own amount in the ‘enter amount’ box):
For more about bonus and wagering requirements, as well as details of how to withdraw, see sections below.
Spela Casino gives you not one, but two awesome welcome offers to choose from –
Before you get over excited, note that this is an either/or offer – so you have to choose which one is better for you!
To claim the welcome bonus, you need to:
Step 1:Register for a new player account at Spela Casino
Step 2:Tick the ‘I want a bonus’ box in the cashier screen (see the screen shot in the ‘How to get started’ section, above, for details of where to find this because it's a little easy to miss if you're not aware of it!)
Step 3:Make a deposit of at least $10
Step 4:Start playing! Your deposit bonus will be automatically applied.
So: about both of these bonuses. As with most free lunches, there are a few Terms and Conditions you should know about when claiming either of Spela’s Welcome Bonuses:
For the casino bonus –
For the Live Casino welcome bonus:
There aren’t currently any bonus codes available for the Spela Welcome Bonus; you can read more about the Bonus’ Terms and Conditions here.
If all of this sounds daunting, it really doesn’t need to, these are pretty standard terms for an online casino.
We will say that Genesis Global’s other brands, like Kassu and Casino Joy, also have deposits bonuses available up to $1500 and across your first 4 deposits – all with the same Terms, of course. If those interest you, then be sure to check out our reviews of those brands too!

We just love how organised and friendly everything is at Spela Casino: we felt like we really knew how to navigate around this place:
We also really liked how Spela gave us clear directions on the best games – the popular ones with other players new games that had been recently added to casinos, and even gave us a place to put our favourite games (just add these by clicking the star icon on each game’s screen).
Otherwise, Spela Casino have these game categories to choose from:
That’s a LOT of choice – and we think virtually any player, no matter how experienced they are with online casino gaming, or even their particular gaming preferences, will find more than enough to keep amused by here.
Still, if that’s all a little overwhelming, and you’d like some kind of guidance as to what’s worth your time and effort playing, then Spela spells (aha!) it out for you: check out the Hot Games tab: at the time of writing, the top slots at Spela Casino were – :

As a UKGC-regulated casino, Spela is required to not only undergo regular testing of their games, but to do so from a respected and recognised testing organisation. Spela reveals in an FAQ that they use both eCOGRA and Gaming Laboratories International (GLi) to do this.
Although the casino doesn’t publicly state their payout rate, it’s also really easy to work this out for yourself as long as you have a bit of time on your hands! Go to each game’s individual game screen, and look for its information/help/’?’ section. Open it, and scroll down to the RTP (Return To Player) percentage.
Once you’ve found this, you just need to find a few games’ RTPs, and average them out. This should give you the overall payout rate for the casino.
We took 10 games and averaged out their RTPs – we got a 97% payout rate for the casino by doing this. Obviously, this isn’t a scientific method, but it does give you a good indication of how fair the casino is, we discovered that Spela is both fair, random and pretty generous to their players too!

Spela Casino has a range of deposit and withdrawal options for CA players, which we think you’ll be pretty happy with!
Spela Casino is highly committed to making sure their players are safe and secure online. Not only is the casino regulated by both the incredibly strict and well-respected United Kingdom Gambling Commission, and the Malta Gaming Authority, but it really goes above and beyond to protect its players from any untoward or problematic gambling habits, linking to several support organisations for easy player reference. These include GamStop, BeGambleAware.org and Spela’s parent company’s own responsible gaming site, Genesis Safeplay. Spela also links to its own Responsible Gambling policy, which is full of useful tips and advice for players.
Otherwise the site has full SSL encryption protection, meaning any player data – financial, personal etc – is fully encrypted and unhackable.
Spela also encourages players to set a deposit limit, making this easy and available from each player’s account to set up.
Spela has a fantastic mobile casino and dedicated apps for Android and iOS, really covering both options for fans of gaming on the go – via the site and the apps.
The mobile site is really nicely optimised, and is basically just a mini version of the desktop. You’ll see all of the same gaming options, as well as have access to everything that you would on the desktop site – the banking, the promotions and live chat, and beyond.
The apps also look great, and echo the mobile site – they look slightly different from the mobile site, because that’s how apps are, but you’ll still have all of the same access to the games and functions as you would on both the mobile site and desktop site.
Across both mobile platforms, we could easily swipe, scroll and select absolutely anything easily and without accidentally touching or selecting anything we didn’t mean to. The game tiles were perfectly sized, for that matter.
Both the mobile site and the apps also handled a mix of operating systems and devices – we tried both with phones and tablets on iOS, Android and Windows, and each platform handled them perfectly, with no battery drainage either! Nice one, Spela!
Weirdly, Spela doesn’t seem to have a loyalty scheme. We’ve noticed this is a theme with Genesis Global’s casinos. Never mind – we guess there’s more than enough here to keep you happy and playing, but it would have been nice to have seen how Spela handles player loyalty!
We will update this review if that ever changes – so keep checking back!
Luckily, Spela Casino does have a VIP scheme: although details are little on the hush-hush side (even our friends at live chat wouldn’t budge and give us some of the insider info), we know that its invite-only, and you can receive the following benefits for being a Spela VIP:
From the little information we have, this still sounds like a great club to be a part of!
We had a great time with Spela’s customer service.
Firstly the FAQ section is super-in-depth, as we’ve come to expect of all Genesis Global casinos. Not only is it searchable, but everything is nicely sectioned-off into specific topics, such as banking, bonuses and more. If you click into a section, you see a pretty solid list of actually frequently asked questions, with each question going into quite a lot of detail.
We didn’t really need to, but we tested out the live chat, for your reading pleasure and in the interests of an open, honest review – but really, we found everything we needed in the FAQ section. We spoke to Troy, who was super helpful and answered all of our questions in a jiffy.
Spela Casino also has a CA landline and an email address, and both these and the live chat are available 24/7 should you need them (but we’re pretty certain you’ll find what you’re looking for in the FAQ section).
We knew we were in for a great time with Spela when we saw it was a Genesis Global brand. Not only are there two welcome offers available for you to choose from, but there are over a thousand games to keep you amused.
We love the ongoing promotions, the range of deposit methods and the instant withdrawals – and that’s before we get onto the fantastic FAQ section and live chat support.
All in all, we were almost certain that every type of player, no matter their preference, was more than enough to keep them amused and happy at Spela!
It’s 100% legitimate. It’s regulated by both the UKGC and the MGA, and really dedicated itself to safeguarding players: it links to a whole range of gambling support organisations in the site’s footer (for a full list of these, check out the ‘Safety and Security’ section, above).
Spela also insist, as a UKGC-regulated casino, that players have to verify their ID and proof of address before requesting a withdrawal.
It depends on the withdrawal method you select, but they can take from anywhere between instantly to up to 5 working days. See more about this in the ‘Banking methods’ section, above.
Additionally, you’ll have to complete the ID and address verification process before Spela will even allow you to access the cashier’s withdrawals section. You’ll find more information about this, as well as the type of documents you’ll need to upload, in the ‘Banking methods’ section, above.
It’s easy – you can either get in touch with Spela’s customer support, or you can click this link to do it yourself, automatically!
They’re available as a part of your welcome bonus – check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above for more details! Always keep an eye on Spela’s Promotions section, which is updated regularly, or if you’re a Spela VIP player, these could be available from your VIP Account Manager. You could always ask them to get the bonus code ball rolling!
Go to the cashier section and choose ‘withdrawal’. Then, just follow the process until you see the finalisation screen. Et voila – you’re done! You might even see your cash appear your account instantly (depending on if you’ve withdrawn using an ewallet)
Remember, Spela won’t allow you to access the cashier unless you’ve verified your ID and proof of address. Check out more about this process in the ‘Banking Methods’ section, above.
You can get these as a part of your Spela welcome bonus – check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above.
Otherwise, keep an eye on the Promotions section of the site, and if you’re a VIP player, there’s no harm in cheekily asking your Account Manager for some free bonus goodies!
Check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above, for details of how to use and the Terms and Conditions of the welcome bonus.
For all other bonuses, you should always check a bonus’ Terms and Conditions before agreeing to claim it from the casino.
It’s the same as Spela’s standard process: check out the ‘How do I withdraw at Spela?’ FAQ, above, for more information.
Remember, you’ll need to have satisfied Spela’s bonus’ Terms and Conditions (see more details of these in the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above), before requesting a withdrawal.
They are available as a part of your welcome bonus! Check out the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, above, for more details!
