Bally Casino is a new UK facing slot and casino site. You’ll need to play through your deposit to collect the welcome offer spins, which are on an exclusive slot game, but after that there’s no wagering requirements and no limits on what you can win.
Although Bally Casino is brand new in the UK, it’s replaced and inherited the player base of another casino that was named after a famous slot game mechanic under a (now expired) license from Big Time Gaming, and which itself inherited the player base of an even older site, Starspins. If you had an account there you’ll find it has been carried over to Bally Casino and there’s no need to sign up again. You’ll also find that the new casino is very similar in layout and game content to the old.
Why the name Bally Casino? Because the whole kit and caboodle is owned by Bally’s Corporation. Most famous in the US where it owns and operates a number of bricks and mortar casinos and a horse racing track, Bally’s Corporation bought the Gamesys Group back in 2021 and renamed it Bally’s Interactive International. The merger extends the long arm of Bally’s both internationally and online, putting them well on the way to world domination – or as they call it the Ballyverse – in the betting and gaming sphere. It’s always reassuring for players to know the casino they are playing at has the backing of a household name.
Bally Casino retains the Megaways area in the lobby which was the raison d’etre of the casino it replaces. Bonanza and Extra Chilli rub shoulders with Megaways versions of classics like Gonzo’s Quest and Fishin’ Frenzy and titles like Tiki Totems Megaways, Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways and Double Bubble Megaways which are exclusive to Bally’s Interactive International. And there’s also plenty of other slot games to choose from, from all time classics like Cleopatra and Thuderstruck 2 to hot new releases. Not to forget the progressive jackpots which include Mega Moolah and Jackpot King as well as many Gamesys/Bally exclusives such as various jackpot versions of the iconic Double Bubble slot game.
The live casino area has Evolution game shows such as Crazy Time, Deal Or No Deal Live, MONOPOLY Big Baller and Mega Ball as well as the usual card and table games, some of which are exclusives. And if you get tired of slot and casino games, there’s also a poker area and even a few bingo rooms (networked with their other sites including Jackpotjoy).
Like its stablemates, Bally Casino places the emphasis very much on entertainment which means there’s plenty of fun extras. For example, there’s a choice of several daily free games. The way that it works is that you pick one of them and play it every day for a week; they are essentially scratchcards and the aim is to collect groups of symbols to win cash or free spins. There’s a further opportunity to win at the end of each month. Bally Casino also runs free Slot Masters tournaments where you get to go head to head with other players to climb the leaderboard; again, you can win free spins or cash prizes.
Promotions at Bally Casino include prize draws and bonus games, often with Box Bonanzas to be won (a Box Bonanza is a pick-me game that usually but not always awards a cash prize). They are normally for invited players only.
Because of all of these extras, Bally Casino scores very highly for fun factor. And another thing it scores very highly for is sheer usability on all devices; it’s really easy to find your way around the lobby and discover games you might like to try out, and all of the offers and promotions are easy to understand with no hidden nasties in the terms and conditions.
The only downside is that there’s just one deposit method accepted and that’s a debit card. You can use your debit card directly or (if playing on an Apple device) via Apple Pay. So if you want to be able to deposit using a prepaid card, e-wallet or other alternative payment method, Bally Casino won’t hit the mark. For everyone else, it’s very much worth checking out.
The Play Responsibly area of the site is prominently linked from the lobby. The first thing you will see when you navigate there is a helpful video explaining all of the responsible gambling tools. Below that, all of the information is presented in easy to digest chunks, with direct links to each tool. There’s also a self assessment questionnaire, links to gaming and transaction history and further advice and useful links (e.g. to a list of UK banks that offer gambling blocks on debit cards). It’s all formatted to be easily readable on a mobile phone but works well on a bigger screen too.
