Nektan Casino Sites

Nektan casinos are now operated by Grace Media.  They have an extensive range of slot games and network promotions;  the platform was originally developed with mobile phones in mind making Nektan casino sites especially suited to mobile play. We also have separate listings for Nektan bingo sites, which add the Pragmatic Play bingo product and welcome offer to all the slot and casino games.

Nektan Casino & Slot Sites

Nektan Casinos

Who are Nektan?

Nektan started out by writing their own slot games, specifically for mobile phones, to be played in their own casinos only. Chomp Casino was one of the first Nektan mobile casinos – the name chosen to emphasise “bite size” play – and it featured games such as Best of British, Candy Swap and Meow Money. It was not long, however, before Nektan had a change of direction – although they continued to develop their own slot games, they also signed deals with a number of other slot providers in order to offer a white label casino platform. Today there are dozens of Nektan casino sites offering slot games by Net Ent, Blueprint, SG, Microgaming, Pragmatic Play and other providers as well as their own exclusive Nektan slots, and a steady stream of new Nektan casinos launching (although this has slowed down considerably for 2022).  The head office of Nektan is in Gibraltar but they also have offices in the UK (as well as in the US and India) and have an AIM listing on the London Stock Exchange.

The casino platform management part of the Nektan business has now been taken over by Grace Media Ltd who are based in the UK and the software is supplied by Markor Technology (again as a result of a takeover). Players still refer to the casinos as Nektan casinos and we expect this to continue itno 2022.

What differences are there between Nektan casinos?

  • Nektan Casinos all have much the same extensive range of slots including a few exclusive Nektan slots and most have a search/filter tool for finding the game you want.
  • There is a standard Nektan welcome offer, but a lot of sites replace or enhance it with slot spins.
  • Promotions at Nektan slot sites are normally run by the network, but there is also scope for individual sites to have their own promotions via a customised home page (hardly any do).
  • Some Nektan casinos have the Pragmatic Play bingo product and a set of bingo promotions to go with it, but many don’t.  The same is true of the live dealer area.
  • A new version of the lobby was introduced in 2021 which means that the bingo either has to be given pride of place (as it is at Bubbly Bingo) or dropped entirely to concentrate on slots and live dealer (as it was at PlayUK and Cloud Casino).

What do Nektan Casinos do well?

  • The standard network offer isn’t so great any more but many Nektan sites still have better and more competitive offers
  • There’s a wide range of well curated slots from different providers (though not as many as there used to be)
  • Easy play on all devices

What else do I need to know?

  • Nektan casinos have a sizeable list of games that cannot be played with bonus. As well as all table games and progressive jackpot slots, the list includes popular titles like Guns N Roses, Gorilla Go Wild and Thunderstruck II.  There’s also a list of “Premium Slots” than only contribute to wagering requirements at 75%.
  • At some sites the welcome bonus can ONLY be used on “welcome slots” – a selection of around 20 games all of which are quite high variance.  This is much simpler than having to check up on which games count at 75% and which not at all but then again, you might not like many of the games on the list and you will be stuck with them until you’ve completed the wagering requirements.
  • Nektan sites no longer have any progressive jackpot slots.
  • There are limits on what you can win at any Nektan slot or casino site.  The max convertible from bonus play is 4 x the original bonus (2 x in the case of some promotions) and the maximum payout on any spin apart from progressive jackpots is £250,000.
  • There are also limits on what bonuses can be claimed across the Nektan network – no more than 4 welcome offers can be claimed at Nektan sites in any 30 day period.  They also reserve the right to exclude players from receiving any more bonuses anywhere on the network.
  • If you deposit using an e-wallet (and this includes Paypal) or prepaid voucher your maximum spin value while playing through wagering requirements is 50p.  Stake more and you may have your bonus and winnings voided.
  • In July 2019 Nektan introduced a £2.50 fee for withdrawals of less than £30.  This has now been reduced to £1.50
  • Nektan casinos used to have the Medium level of player funds protection but in the course of the transfer to Grace Media this was downgraded to “Not protected” (meaning that should the network go into administration, players would be in the same position as any other creditor and might not get any money in their account back in full).
  • Nektan casinos are amongst the few to accept deposits via Boku but this is not as great as it sounds.  For a start, it only works if your phone service is EE, 3 or O2.  There’s also a hefty 15% fee.

Nektan Casinos - FAQ

Nektan is a casino software platform that was developed to be mobile first and now powers many white label casino sites. Nektan were originally a slot game provider and the platform initially only had their own mobile slot games. It now showcases the most popular games from a number of different providers.

As of January 2021 the Gambling Commission listed a staggering 236 domain names associated with the Nektan licence, but the number which are actually live is quite a lot less than that. Some of the listings are not currently active and others are variations of the same domain name (e.g. .com and .co.uk). We believe that there are around 50-60 Nektan casinos currently on line.

While Nektan casinos all look the same and have the same underlying terms and conditions there are a couple of important differences to look out for. One is the welcome offer; some have a bonus and some just have spins. The other is the range of games; while the slot games don’t vary much across Nektan sites, some Nektan casinos have elected not to have any bingo and/or live casino.
