King Billy Casino Review
On most gaming sites, you simply just have a crack at winning by playing whatever games tickle your fancy. But with King Billy, as well as a good welcome bonus, you get the opportunity to progress from a simple citizen when you join, to a Baron/Baroness, to a Duke/Duchess, to a Prince/Princes, all the way to a King/Queen.
King Billy is pretty good to his new citizens, and offers a welcome bonus that is right up there with the best of the other online casino sites. In total, you can receive up to $1,500 and 200 free spins. Here’s how it works:
- First deposit — they’ll match you 100% up to $300 plus 200 spins on Starburst and Fruit Zen (No code needed)
- Second deposit — they’ll match you 50% up to $300 (Use code WELCOME2)
- Third deposit — they’ll match you 25% up to $450 (Use code WELCOME3)
- Fourth deposit —they’ll match you 25% up to $450 (Use code WELCOME4)
Please be aware that some of the banking deposit options will make you ineligible for the welcome bonuses, so check before you choose your deposit method.
King Billy offers a decent welcome to the kingdom with up to $1,500 and 200 free spins. That’s a pretty decent offer, up there with the best of them.
Hey, we did say that King Billy was a generous dude, and he shows that in his wagering requirements for the welcome bonuses. Whereas most online casinos will charge a 40x or even 45x wagering requirement, our mate King Billy only wants a 35x wagering bonus. So that means if you deposit the minimum of $15 on your first deposit, you’ll get a $15 bonus, and you’ll need to bet that $15 bonus 35 times before you can withdraw your winnings from that bonus money. Some people might think that’s still a bit high, but honestly it’s up to you — as far as we’re concerned it’s free money either way!
King Billy offers a reasonably generous wagering requirement of 35x on you welcome bonus — not the best out there, but better than most.
Oh boy, King Billy is the man when it comes to pokies — he’s managed to wrangle over 2,500 pokie games into the kingdom. There is seriously no shortage of pokies to play here, and it will take you a long time to go through them all. Surprisingly, those 2,500 pokies don’t include too many rubbish/filler games just to make up those numbers, thanks to King Billy partnering up with some well respected gaming developers. Here are some of the titles on offer:
- Fruit Zen
- Gonzo’s Quest
- Street Fighter II
- Wolf Moon Rising
- Relic Hunters
The only bad thing about the way they have set it up, is that it can be hard to find what you’re after, as you can’t sort by top pokies.
King Billy has a massive 2,500 pokies in his kingdom, so you’ll be galloping on your mouse for days before you run out of games to play.
King Billy has brought quite a bit to the banquet table in terms of promos for you to go after, which we reckon should keep you pretty entertained.
- Welcome Bonus — $1,500 and 200 free spins
- Slot of the month — deposit $20 and get 61 free spins
- King’s Gift — Every Thursday you get a wager-free cashback of upto 15%
- Extra weekend — Every Monday get 25% bonus and 25 free spins on Gonzo’s Quest
- Spin your weekend — Every weekend get extra free spins and profit
So while it’s up to you whether those promos will fill up your goblet, we reckon that’s a decent range of incentives without giving you so many options that you lose track!
King Billy strikes a good balance of having a decent number of promos without overwhelming you with options.
It may be medieval times at King Billy’s place, but that’s no excuse not to have a top notch mobile gaming experience! Luckily old mate Billy has figured all of that out, and has a really good and responsive mobile gaming experience, whether you are on your phone or tablet. We can’t find a dedicated app for it, so maybe Billy just didn’t want to fork out the royal coffers to pay for it. That doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things though, as you only need to load it up in your mobile browser and you're good to go. There is no way of testing all 3,500 games on mobile, but we have to imagine they all work pretty well!
King Billy has a simple but effective mobile gaming strategy — just load up their website on your mobile device’s browser, and you are good as gold.
With over 3,500 games, you might think King Billy is a bit guilty of padding his royal numbers out by chucking some stinkers in there. But to our surprise, he has actually partnered with some really good software providers:
- Play’n GO
- Evolution Gaming
- Booming Gaming
- Pragmatic Play
- Felix Gaming
- Nolimits City
- Vivo Gaming
We’ll admit some of them aren’t exactly household names in casino gaming, but there are plenty there that are at the top of the heap!
While King Billy has over 3,500 games in total, they have done their best to include most of the top software providers.
Casino Planet has over 3,500 games in total, which honestly, is crazy. The fear there is of course that there are a bunch of rubbish games thrown into the pile to pad out those numbers, but honestly, it’s not too bad. 2,500 of the games are pokies, which leaves over 1,000 of the games to be table and live games like:
- 18 Roulette games
- 56 Blackjack games with American, European, and Spanish variants
- 19 Table poker games
- 9 Baccarat games
- 10+ Scratch games
- 10+ Bingo games
- 7 Keno games
- 3 Sic Bo games
- 102 Live blackjack tables
- 38 Live roulette tables
- 19 Live baccarat tables
- 3 Live table poker games
So while most of the games on offer are pokies, if you’re looking for something different, the other 1,000 games aren’t anything to sneeze at! One thing of note, is that we couldn’t play some of the table games because we had our welcome bonus active. We checked with their support and said they couldn’t do anything about it. That kind sucks, but oh well.
King Billy has provided his kingdom over 1,000 non-pokie games, covering table and live games. Not bad we reckon.
Banking and Payment Methods
Most casino gaming sites (and castles for that matter) are based in Europe, which long story short, means most of the banking and payment methods are really only suitable for Europeans. Funny that. Which means in the land of the long white cloud, we are usually just left with Visa and Mastercard. In the case of King Billy though, he has provided us with a number of options:
- Skrill (online payment option)
- NeoSurf(online payment option)
- Ecopayz (online payment option)
The only thing of note, is that while you’ll get a welcome bonus with Visa and Mastercard, we recommend you check to see if they offer the welcome bonus on the other payment methods. The minimum deposit is $15, and the maximum is $6,000. Deposits are instant, and they claim that withdrawals are also instant, which is crazy good.
King Billy offers a decent number of banking and payment offers, and claims an incredible instant withdrawal time. Pretty good!
King Billy’s servants don’t offer a live chat mode, which is a little bit disappointing as we feel that adds a personal touch. In saying that though, there is a chat bubble where you send a message, and they email you back. We messaged them at about 1PM NZ time, and they replied to us in less than 15 minutes (which is average but okay), and answered our questions fully.
While King Billy doesn’t offer a live chat, the 24/7 email support is reliable and helpful.
King Billy offers a unique twist on things by letting you progress through their royalty programme for bonuses. Add to that a decent welcome bonus and a huge selection of games, we reckon it’s worth a looksy!
