About Moon Games
Software and Games
We’ll kick things off with a quick overview of the software and games here.
Software is a huge topic in the gaming industry and can just as easily break a site as it can make one.
Thankfully, at Moon Games, software isn’t taken lightly and there’s a somewhat small yet mighty selection of software providers. Here’s the full list:
NetEnt, IGT (WagerWorks), Cassava, Dragonfish (Random Logic), WMS
Simplicity is key at Moon Games. With 400+ games to choose from, the offerings need to be categorized and organized in a clear fashion to prevent you losing your mind trying to find a favorite slot.
Thankfully, they’ve managed to do just that with a very minimal approach to game organization. Well, maybe even minimal is not the word. Sparse, perhaps? Yet it works, with just two game categories in “Slots” and “Instant Wins”.
Slots are sure to be the favorite section for the majority of players visiting Moon Games. With such a selection of one-armed-bandits available, it’s hardly a surprise.
A number of options help you whittle down your search results to find exactly what you’re after. Whether that’s choosing from trending games, new-to-the-site games, or the progressives--available in what amounts to a humongous list--you’ll find navigation both speedy and effortless.
Looking to spend a little more time deliberating before you play?
Then feel free to hit the “all slots” subcategory for a peruse. Here you’ll uncover countless classics and noteworthy new games such as “Starburst”, “Appeal”, “Cleopatra”, “Irish Riches” and so many more.
If you’re a self-confessed slot-nut, you’ll fall in love with what Moon Games has to offer.
Moving on to instant wins now, and you’ll also find this category full to the brim with plenty of instant games ripe for the picking.
As with the slots, the instant wins are split into a number of subcategories comprised of “Scratch Cards”, “Arcade” and “Slingo” combining to create a trilogy of instant fun. Alternatively, take your time and browse through the “all games” section, viewing all available instant wins in a long, grid-based list.
Available scratch cards include fan favorites such as “King Kong Cash Instant”, “Lucky Irish” and “Noughts & Crosses”. Arcade games span from “Baking Bonanza”, “Rio Bingo” and “Lucky Keno” among plenty of others. Last, let’s not overlook the Slingo! There are good variants here too, including “Deal or No Deal Slingo”, “Monopoly Slingo” and “Slingo Fortunes” among plenty of others.
For a selection of slots and instants, it doesn’t get much better than Moon Games. And even better, you don’t even need to travel to the moon to get there; pull your smartphone from your pocket, and you’re there!
Looking to take your gaming on the go? Then you’ll be pleased to find a great selection of mobile-friendly games at Moon Games Casino.
By visiting the site through a device browser, you can play mobile games on any of the following devices:
Desktop (Windows + Mac)
Tablet (Android + iPad)
If you’re using an iOS device, you’ll be pleased to find the option to play on Moon Games through your very own mobile app, downloadable through the app store. Unfortunately, the mobile app isn’t available for Android devices due to the prohibition of gaming applications on the Google Play Store. So that’s one thing we can’t hold against Moon Games.
Promotions and Bonuses
You want to know about the promotions and bonuses, right? Well, there’s a handful of fantastic promos from Moon Games, starting with everyone’s favorite, the Welcome Bonus.
Welcome Bonus - 100% bonus + 100 free spins
The welcome bonus is the one that the majority of players will be claiming right off the bat. This is also where many online casinos fall down. Not so this time.
There’s a huge 100% bonus of up to £100 plus an additional 100 free spins to claim, with 20 dished out each day for the first 5 days following your deposit. You do need to deposit a minimum of £10 to qualify for the bonus but with such a large sum up for grabs, it’s a near mindless decision.
However, a number of Terms and Conditions and wagering requirements are enforced on the site; take time to check these out before claiming the bonus. First off, note too that the wagering requirements are relatively large compared to some sites, but as a way for players to get a feel for the site before signing up, it’s hard to complain.
First up, it’s the bonus wagering requirements that come under scrutiny. You will see yourself faced with a 50x (deposit + bonus) requirement sitting between you and your withdrawal. But--as much as we know you’d love us to moan about it--this wagering requirement still seems almost reasonable when looking at the free spins requirement sitting at 85x (bonus). It’s certainly a big ‘un! Maybe that’s why they do it--so the previous requirement seems small?
All bonus wins are capped at £400 + the initial bonus amount, too, but with such steep requirements, that’s unlikely to come to pass anyway.
Well, regardless, to let you view the site and see what’s on offer, we think the Moon Games Casino welcome bonus is still a great way to get to grips with things.
Win More Daily - Spin the Wheel
As a member of Moon Games Casino, you will be given the chance of spinning the wheel every single day, to win one of 12 great prizes.
Every spin yields a win--very poetic, eh?--so you’re guaranteed to grab goodies such as free spins, extra coins, bonus cash, or even huge jackpots. But that’s not all, since plenty of other online casino bonuses are available at this site; you’ll see free spin promotions, mystery gifts, casino bonus codes, cashback, and so much more.
Be sure to keep checking those emails and logging in regularly to avoid missing out on the good stuff.
The loyalty rewards scheme is neatly packaged into two parts at Moon Games.
One side of the offer is based around the loyalty points in a traditional comp-points scheme available to everyone, while the second half is offered to its invite-only VIP members.
Traditional Comp Points
You’ll be rewarded just for showing up to the office and enjoying your favorite play at Moon Games. Plenty of loyalty points--also known as coins, experience coins, and points--are up for grabs.
Loyalty points are awarded in a number of different ways including promotions, bonus features, and simply by playing on instant games. Every £4 of real money wagered at the site will earn you more points to keep in the account before they can be claimed. Once you have accrued the magic 10,000 coins, you can redeem this for £1 of bonus money.
Unfortunately, like a number of competitor sites, these bonus funds do come with a wagering requirement attached and--another little word of warning here again--it’s not a small one this time either.
In fact, this one is fairly staggering, it has to be said; if you have slaved away to earn those huge 10,000 loyalty points, you’ll be disappointed to see that the bonus £1 comes with a huge 85x wagering requirement.
To make things just a little bit more frustrating still, if you have not wagered real money within the last 30 days, you’ll have your loyalty coins forfeited, resetting the coins total right back to zero. It’s less of a loyalty scheme and more of a cruel joke if we’re totally honest, something that drastically needs updating for the modern-day.
We think it seems especially strange given the eCOGRA status and the regulation by UKGC. We thought that being more strictly regulated also contributed toward encouraging responsible gaming. Wasn’t that the idea?
But if players are ‘punished’ each time they back away from a site for a mere 30 days, this works the other way around, doesn’t it?
Aside from the somewhat disappointing comp points, players are also given the chance to reach VIP status, acquired by invitation only.
If you have won the title of VIP, you’ll be treated to a number of glamorous perks otherwise unavailable at the site. Although there’s no chance to level up in VIP tiers, these benefits are what we like to see from an online casino. As a VIP, you can claim the following:
Access to a dedicated VIP Team
Additional exclusive free spins and giveaways
Weekly cashbacks on net losses awarded
Personalized gifts and special benefits
Low wagering amounts.
Overall, the loyalty scheme is a little disappointing, but the VIP membership benefits do begin to claw back some reputability. It’s just a shame that the comp points for everyday players are so lowly valued.
When it comes time to deposit at Moon Games, there are many deposit options on the table.
From Maestro and MasterCard to Neteller and PayPal, there’s a deposit method for just about everyone. Here’s the full list:
Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, PayPal, PaysafeCard, Ukash, Visa Electron, Entropay, Visa.
Similarly, when you wish to withdraw your bankroll and bulk up your wallet, there is no issue here. With MasterCard and Visa options sandwiched between Bank Wire Transfers and cheques, players are given more than enough options to cash out.
This is a really nice, comprehensive withdrawal methods list:
Bank Wire Transfer, Cheque, Maestro, MasterCard, Neteller, PayPal, Visa Electron, Visa.
Withdrawal times will depend entirely on the method chosen, but as a general rule, the majority of methods allow withdrawal within 7 days:
EWallets: 24-72 hours
Credit / Debit Cards: 2-5 days
Bank Transfers: 4-7 days
Cheques: 7-21 days
Pending Time: 48-72 hours.
There are a number of constraints sitting in the withdrawal Terms and Conditions, as is often the case. Players are restricted to maximum withdrawals of 5,000 GBP per day, 10,000 GBP per week and 20,000 GBP per month. Having said this, these Terms are not especially onerous; in fact, they are on the generous side compared to some competitor online casinos.
At least here, if you secure a big win, you don’t wait forever to see it hit the bank--even when it comes incrementally.
As for the rest of the banking system, everything functions exactly as it should and with minimal player complaints surrounding the withdrawals from the site, there’s nothing for new sign-ups to worry about.
Even the very best online casinos have a handful of criticisms and controversies following them around. So, what’s the lowdown on Moon Games? Actually, it’s a repeat of what we said already--and there are no controversies to be found, from what we could see.
What we have here is a handful of gripes around things the casino could do better.
Poor Loyalty Scheme
You guessed it, first in the list of criticisms comes that meager and stingy loyalty scheme and the incredibly low value it offers to its loyal players. It seems some casinos have failed to understand what loyalty schemes are about, and this is one of the worst.
The traditional comp points scheme has been tweaked to death by Moon Games, rendered almost valueless in the end with an absurdly high number of points required for minimum payout.
As a general rule, comp-based loyalty schemes aren’t the best but they do offer a nice little wagering-requirement-free cash bonus once, say, 1,000 points are reached. At Moon Casino, players are required to earn 10x as many points for just £1 in real cash bonuses. We cannot imagine anyone saying to their best buddy, “Hey, pal, you really should join Moon Games Casino because I am getting £1 for every 10,000 points that have taken me forever to earn!” Well, they might say it, but only in sarcasm.
The bonus amount is already incredibly low, even for the tightest of online casinos. And with players spending thousands just to reach the cashout level, this offer would be better withdrawn--it’s pretty much an insult to truly loyal players.
Granted, the VIP benefits do claw back some value for the loyalty scheme but since it’s an invite-only membership and we have no idea of what percent of players becomes eligible, the average player shouldn’t expect to be made a VIP anytime soon.
Minimal Existing Players Promotions
If we set the daily promotions from the spinning wheel to one side for a second, you might find that there’s not much available here either.
After the daily bit of fun where you can spin the wheel for a chance to claim one of 12 small prizes, it’s back to business as usual with no featured promotions for existing players. That’s something that will divide players, surely?
We think some will appreciate the uncertainty of different daily promotions, but old-school players will prefer knowing what they can claim and when. Mystery prizes and promos are good fun, but usually as additional rewards; most people coming to a casino regularly would prefer named bonuses and prizes to aim for.
Ultimately, we’d love to see Moon Games operate the best-of-both-worlds situation with a structure of bonuses (e.g. Free Spins Monday) alongside the chance to win other bonuses with the wheel. That way, all players will be kept happy knowing they’re able to claim plenty of bonuses through the week, plus an additional chance to win a prize daily.
It’s not a criticism that should influence a decision to sign up or avoid the site entirely, but it’s something to consider if you love juicy promotions. Balance out this mighty meanness against the array of games, the excellent security of the site, and the regulation, to decide if this one’s for you.
This is possibly a Marmite site, a love-it-or-loathe-it scenario.
We do love the fantastic selection of old-style slots and instant games, and we’re sure the traditional casino games player will be more than pleased here. However, if you like a little more variety with table games and live casino options alongside the older offerings, then you’ll think this site lacks punch in the games department.
Similarly, looking at the promotions, some players may well love the spinning wheel surprises, but others will find this site’s promotions a deadly dull damp squib.
It all comes down to player preference, but what we can say is that there are no reasons to avoid it, and that’s always a great thing. You’re in safe hands.
