How’s it going, dawg? This is your boy Derrick, coming at you with another online casino review. On this day, I am going to enjoy reviewing Argo Casino. Did you know that when Jason sailed with the Argonauts that they played slots during their voyage? Yup, they had electricity and live casino games, and… yeah, I’m gonna stop right here cos this joke ain’t going nowhere.

Argo Casino is a gambling site that’s trying to cater to casino players, sports bettors, and even the e-sports betting crowd. Can this ship handle it all or will it eventually sink? Find out in your boy Derrick’s review.

Casino Review Details

Argo Casino came out all the way in 2014, making it a well-established online casino at this point. Being one of the early online casinos, it used to be considered one of the best online casinos at the time in the online gambling industry. This online casino is licensed by the Government of Curacao. Argo Casino is owned and operated by Joy Systems N.V. These guys are here to make sure that the casino and the games available at Argo Casino play nice with you and don’t try to cheat you out of your funds. This is also complemented by the 128-bit SSL encryption that’s available on the website which can and will protect your private data from maliciously malicious hacker attacks.

Argo Casino looks fine. It’s not the best-looking online casino I’ve ever seen but it’s not the worst either. The menus and the UI look okay but the overall pages are cluttered with too much stuff. I do like the logo they have with the iconic ship, it gives the casino some much-needed personality. Argo Casino has a lot of things: bonuses, casino games, live dealer games, sports betting, and even TV games. For now, let’s start from the very beginning and see who can actually play at Argo Casino.

Country Restrictions

The following countries aren’t allowed to register accounts with Argo Casino:

  • Netherlands, France, Dutch West Indies, Israel, Moldova, Poland, Malta, Lithuania, Germany, United Kingdom, USA and its territories.

Now, this is a rather small list, which is great, however, there are other restrictions for game providers (such as NetEnt, Rabcat, Qtech) and Canada is on some of these lists. So, before you get excited about playing a slot game, make sure it’s actually available to play.

Argo Casino Bonuses

Argo Casino came out during a time when casinos only offered a few bonuses with very little variety. Thankfully, it has been keeping up with the times so it has quite a few bonuses. There is, of course, a welcome bonus, some reload bonuses, cashback rewards, tournaments, and even more types of promotions. I’m actually impressed. Even the wagering requirements aren’t the worst I’ve ever seen.

Welcome Bonus

The welcome bonus consists of a 100% match bonus. Players who deposit at least CA$40 (€30) can claim the bonus and potentially win up to CA$700 (€500). The wagering requirement is also pretty decent. Overall, not a bad way to start off your casino journey.

  • 100%(up to CA$700)
  • Minimum deposit: CA$40
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus)
  • Maximum stake for wagering: CA$13 (€10)

Siesta at Argocasino

You can claim this bonus on business days. It comes in two flavours: the 20% match bonus and the 50% match bonus. Depending on how much you deposit and which code you enter, you can get another match bonus similar to the welcome bonus. Now, the sad part about this promotion is that you can only claim it once, as far as I’m aware. Fortunately, we do have a weekly bonus similar to this one later.

20% bonus

  • 20% match bonus
  • Minimum deposit: CA$70(€50)
  • Bonus code: SIESTA20
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus)
  • Maximum stake for wagering: CA$13 (€10

50% bonus

  • 50% match bonus
  • Minimum deposit: CA$140(€100)
  • Bonus code: SIESTA50
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus)
  • Maximum stake for wagering: CA$13 (€10)

Weekly Reward in Arogocasino

I often say how many online casinos shouldn’t have cashback locked behind VIP or Loyalty levels. Well, looks like Argo Casino agrees with your boy Derrick because that’s exactly what it does. Once a week, players will get 15% cashback based on their net losses. Only real money is taken into account (both deposited and withdrawn) and 15% of it will be given back to the player. Sure, the cashback amount will also have a wagering requirement of 40x(bonus amount) which is a bit high, but at least you don’t have to climb up the VIP ladder.

Hot Weekend in Argocasino

Just like the business day promotion, Argo Casino has a promotion for the weekend. The weekend promotion at Argo Casino offers similar deals that you would get during the business days. Same bonus amounts, same wagering, some good deal IMO. As far as I’m concerned you can claim this promotion only once just like the business day promotion.

20% bonus

  • 20% match bonus
  • Minimum deposit: CA$40(€30)
  • Bonus code: HOTWEEK20
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus)
  • Maximum stake for wagering: CA$13 (€10)

40% bonus

  • 40% match bonus
  • Minimum deposit: CA$140(€100)
  • Bonus code: HOTWEEK40
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus)
  • Maximum stake for wagering: CA$13 (€10)

Weekly Reload Bonus

At least this one is pretty straightforward. Once a week, you can claim this weekly reload bonus that awards 30% of the bonus amount and 30 free spins (finally some spins). This promotion can be claimed once a week from Monday to Friday.

  • 30% (up to CA$700) + 30 free spins
  • Minimum deposit amount: CA$70
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus amount), 40x(free spin winnings)

Night Party Bonus

I think this bonus might be Argo Casino’s answer to the lack of reload bonuses. So, if you make a deposit from 00:00 – 05:00 GMT+2 you can claim this bonus promotion.
You can go for the 20% bonus or the 50% bonus.

20% Bonus

  • 20%(CA$1,400)
  • Minimum deposit amount: CA$70
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus amount)
  • Bonus code: PNight20 on Live chat

50% Bonus

  • 50%(up to CA$1,400)
  • Minimum deposit amount: CA$140
  • Wagering requirements: 40x(bonus amount)
  • Bonus code: PNight50 on Live chat

Loyalty Program

Finally, let’s talk about the Loyalty program. I always say that the most basic loyalty program is the one that awards you with cashback, faster withdrawals, and a VIP manager. Well, Argo Casino’s loyalty program only has a point exchange system. Every time you spend CA$70 (€50), you will be awarded one loyalty point. When you collect 10 you can exchange them for bonus funds.

The number of loyalty points you have will also determine how much you will progress through the loyalty tree. There are 6 loyalty levels and the only real benefit each one brings is a better conversion rate when exchanging loyalty points for bonus funds.

Here’s the thing: this really isn’t worth it at all. Already the deal for 1 loyalty point for every CA$70 is bad but when you consider that you will also have a wagering requirement of 40x(bonus amount) for the exchanged points, you really start to question the worth of this system.

Loyalty levels:

  • Beginner – Points needed: 0-5, Loyalty point conversion rate: 10:0,96
  • Bronze – Points needed: 5-25, Loyalty point conversion rate: 10:0,96
  • Silver – Points needed: 25-250, Loyalty point conversion rate: 9:0,96
  • Gold – Points needed: 250-2,500, Loyalty point conversion rate: 9:0,96
  • Platinum– Points needed: 2,500-125,000, Loyalty point conversion rate: 8:0,96
  • Diamond– Points needed: 125,000+, Loyalty point conversion rate: 7:0,96

Free Spins

So, I searched far and wide and the only traces of free bonus spins I’ve found are part of the weekly reload bonus. So, this basically means that only once a week, you can get only 30 free spins. Quite honestly, that’s not a lot. I get it that Argo Casino is a well-established online casino with years of experience so I expect it to implement a few more bonuses that award players with free spins.

Sports Betting

There’s a good variety of games to play at Argo Casino. Their library is neatly organized with all kinds of casino games. From the top, they’ve got categories for their most popular categories which are:

  • Casino
  • Live Casino
  • TV Games
  • Sports

I’m not going to talk about sports but I’m sure you are curious about TV games. In the TV games category (at least for players from Canada) there’s actually nothing in this category. Yup, no kidding. In other regions, you’ll usually get things like game shows (like Sweet Bonanza, Monopoly Live and Dream Catcher). There’s one other category that’s completely barren but we will get to that one later. For now, here are the software providers available to players from Canada: ELK Studios, Habanero, Thunderkick, Blueprint, Gamefish, Splitrock, Kalamba, Booongo, August Gaming, Nolimit City.

Slots

Well if you took one look at the game providers page, you’ll notice that there’s not a lot of stuff at Argo Casino, at least not for players from Canada. There’s a rather limited amount of slot games available to play. Most of these are classic old titles. There are still a couple of new ones, which is nice. Overall, pretty slim pickings here.

Table Games

There are exactly two titles here. One roulette and one blackjack title. That’s it. Not even one baccarat game or a video poker game. There have clearly been some problems with licensing certain game providers to provide their games for players in Canada but, you know what, I don’t care. This is pathetic and a casino shouldn’t even function with just two games.

Jackpot Games

If you want to find some jackpot games, you’re gonna have to dig through slots until you find the jackpot game for you. This is easier said than done because there really aren’t that many of them. You’ll need some outside help and to use the provider filter list in order to locate at least one of these suckers.

Live Casino Games

Remember that barren category? Yup, here it is. Lately, I’ve been seeing fewer and fewer games in Live Casinos libraries for Canadian Casinos but never have I seen a completely empty one until today. Before you ask, yes, in other regions this library is filled with games by some good software providers such as Evolution Gaming and others but, as it is now, it just feels like I’m browsing a gambling site that is in development. Not even Pragmatic Play Live is available and those guys are usually there to save a Canadian Live casino when they don’t have Evolution gaming. I really have no words to describe the amount of disappointment I feel for Argo Casino, dawg.

Mobile Casino

Argo Casino is very proud of its mobile casino. I know this because down at the bottom of their PC web page they have a button for an almost permanent version of their casino in mobile form. Once you click there, the entire website will go into mobile mode and the only way to go back to the PC version is if you clear your search history.

Kind of a weird way to show off your mobile capabilities but: well done (I guess). So yeah, the website is well optimized to work from a mobile device and you can easily deposit, play games, and “contact” the live chat. Overall, the mobile casino version is a-okay.

Argo Casino Payment Methods

deposit methods

withdrawal methods

Visa MasterCard Skrill Neteller paysafecard
Visa MasterCard Skrill Neteller

Argo Casino has a couple of payment methods, made for most types of players, except crypto payments. Most of these payment methods are widely available to almost all players, so you unless you really want to go the crypto route, you shouldn’t have trouble with these payment methods.

Deposit Methods

The following payment methods can be used at Argo Casino: Visa, Mastercard, Visa Electron, Neteller, Skrill, and Paysafecard.

  • Minimum deposit: CA$15

Withdrawal Methods

You can use the same withdrawal methods that you would use for deposits: Visa, Mastercard, Visa Electron, Neteller, and Skrill.

  • Minimum withdrawal amount: CA$25
  • Withdrawal limit: CA$2,000 per day

Accepted Currencies

Argo Casino accepts the following currencies: EUR, PLN, RUB and SEK

Argo Casino Customer Support

Ah, time to talk about my favourite part of the review: my wild encounter with the live chat customer support. If I’ve given a bad vibe towards Argo Casino, don’t you worry dawg, cos it’s about to get much worse. As I was going through the website, no matter where I went, there was the Live Chat side button following me around. This is a good thing, needless to say. So, finally, when your boy Derrick had his fill of the casino, it was time to test out the Live Chat.

I casually clicked on the button and got the window to enter my name, email, and my message. So far so good, amirite! Unfortunately, as soon as I clicked on the “Submit” button, I got a message saying: “Thanks, dawg, we’ll send you an email as soon as we see your message. Later!”

Ummm… How do I put this? That’s not how live chat support works, dawg! I mean, it’s one thing to say “Sorry, we don’t have live chat support but it’s another to lie about it”. Not gonna lie, but this is a new low in my book of bad customer support.

KYC

Before you can try withdrawing funds from your casino account, you’re gonna have to go through the Argo Casino’s KYC. To go through the KYC, you’re gonna need these:

  • Passport photo
  • Selfie with passport
  • ID card
  • Other documents (if necessary)

Available Languages

Argo Casino is available in the following countries: English, German, Russian, Polish, Romanian, Chinese, Ukrainian, and Turkish.

Argo Casino Review Summary

Not gonna lie, dawg, but Argo Casino just rubs me the wrong way. The biggest factor was the fake live chat support but other things contributed as well. The bonuses, while plenty isn’t that great, the website looks a bit outdated and they don’t accept cryptocurrencies. For us Canadian players, things are even worse since there are so many restrictions that the live casino library is literally empty. Honestly, if you ask your boy Derrick, just stay away from this one. As always, we got you, Bro!

Lilly is all wit, sass, and barely enough class. Her sense of entitlement probably stems from the fact that she’s proud and Australian, but her self-deprecating brain balances things out. Even though she has a tendency to ramble on about her own problems in her casino reviews, she leaves no stone unturned. An absolute slot games icon and a much-needed feminine touch to a macho gambling industry.

@Eyesa Wagering requirements. It's how many times you have to roll over a bonus before it becomes valid.

@Eyesa All you need to know is that that thing will prevent you from actually GETTING that bonus.
