Yakocasino Review
Casino Review Team,

Your Casino

Perhaps the most important aspect of Yako Casino is found in the very name of the brand. ‘Yako’ is Swahili for ‘your’, so the literal translation is ‘your casino’. So what makes it yours? Well, personalised casino games based on your favourite games is certainly a good start. Yako Casino aims to provide a bespoke experience customised to each player’s personal preferences.

Bonuses

Yako Casino kick things off with a 100% matched first deposit bonus. Players can claim a maximum of $222/€333, plus a massive 222 free slot game spins. Many sites like to tie-in their welcome deposits amounts with the company’s name, so why is Yako Casino opting for a seemingly random 222 theme? According to the company, the number 222 denotes ‘positive new beginnings’. Our hearty thanks go out to whoever decided a three-digit number was in order.

The minimum deposit to qualify for bonus funds is $20/€30 and seasoned bonus hunters will perk up at the wagering requirements, falling well below the industry standard at just 25x. Whilst much more achievable than the 40x and 50x minimum wagering you’ll find at other sites, the eligible countries are somewhat limited. Australia, New Zealand and Canada are all eligible for the welcome bonus but not the US. In Europe residents of Norway, Finland and Sweden can play as can citizens in the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Ireland. If you’re not on the list, we’re afraid Yako isn’t for you. Sorry guys.

Free Spins

On top of the first deposit bonus you can also pick up ten free spins specifically for the Starburst slot game just for registering your details. You can also pick up a further ten spins for ‘constructive criticism’, though we haven’t tested that yet. Funds won on free spins must be wagered a more traditional 35 times before you can cash out, and it’s also worth noting the $7,000/€5,000 limit on winnings from bonus funds.

We were surprised to see that Yako Casino does not have any kind of loyalty scheme in place. This seems at odds with the idea of tailoring casino games to the customer, and we feel a VIP programme would really add some incentive to make Yako Casino a mainstay for frequent players. Hopefully this is something that will be introduced at some stage.

Over 300 Games

The big guns have all lent their services to Yako Casino’s accomplished games selection. Microgaming, NetEnt and Play’n GO games sit alongside Evolution Gaming, NYX and Leander Games. You’ll recognise many of the biggest and most popular slots here including Jurassic Park, Spinata Grande and of course Starburst which you can get ten free spins on when you first sign up. There are over 300 games in total but if slots aren’t your thing there’s plenty of action elsewhere. Roulette, blackjack and live dealer games are all available as is round-the-clock virtual sports.

Go Mobile

It’s your casino so it’s only fair you can play it your way. Yako Casino is fully accessible on your smartphone or tablet. With experienced industry leaders NetEnt and Microgaming supplying the goods there’s a smooth transition from website to portable device, and both Apple and Android devices benefit from optimisation.

24/7 Support

First and foremost, your country may not be supported. The UK is one notable exclusion but there are a whole bunch of others, with some territories will be excluded from bonus offers. It’s easy to check if you’re allowed to play at Yako Casino; just type in the URL and if you’re in a prohibited country you’ll get a message telling you as much.

For those lucky enough to be in a country that supports Yako Casino, the good news is that the customer support is very respectable. Any casino promoting a tailored experience should know that customer service is essential, and this is reflected in consistent responses from both email support and a useful live chat feature. Live support runs 24/7.

Minimum Deposit

In a move that will frustrate many players the minimum deposit has been set quite high. Customers have to stump up a minimum of $30/€20 in order to get playing, which seems somewhat unnecessary to us. The minimum withdrawal fees are the same, and winning players can take out up to $30,000/€20,000 per day.

On the plus side players generally report fast turnarounds with withdrawals, including bank transfers within three to four days. Options are limited but include all of the main players such as Neteller, Skrill and PaySafeCard alongside credit and debit cards.

Conclusion

Yako Casino makes a bold statement right from the outset, claiming to offer a casino which is tailored to the individual. On some points it delivers; players are recommended games based on their habits and preferences, rather than just being bombarded with a stream of colourful promotions. Live support is available at any hour of the night and it’s the first time we’ve heard of criticism being rewarded with free spins, which surely indicates the company is looking to take customers’ views seriously.

On the flip side the lack of a dedicated app seems out of whack for a bespoke service, and the lack of even a basic loyalty programme strongly detracts from the company’s purported goal. We’d also like to see Yako rolled out in the UK and US to test the waters on a larger market.

A strong selection of games and a generally impressive website mean Yako is not without appeal, but there’s work to be done before it becomes the fully personalised online casino it claims to be.
