Argo Casino Review
Welcome on board as we take a deeper look into Argo Online Casino. This casino is owned by JocSystems N.V and it’s a fully licensed firm in the gambling industry.
Until recently, Argo Casino targeted gamblers from Russia. This is clear from the currency that was used there (ruble). Additionally, technical support was offered in Russian.
Fast forward to today, this casino has grown into a global company offering services to players from different countries. Argo Casino has also increased the number of currencies, in addition to the languages and ways of withdrawal that are available.
However, how are their services as compared to other online casinos? Well, I had the opportunity to try out this casino and here is my review:
Argo Casino has a wide collection of online casino games. These games include my all-time favourite slots, table games (with live dealer), TV games and sports.
After noticing that Argo Casino has some slots, I went on to try a few and my experience was nothing to write home about. The slot’s loading speed was extremely slow, which made me lose a substantial amount of bankroll.
For example, I tried out the Millionaire Megaways slot, and it was nothing but disaster.
Slow loading times were the order of the day, yet I was using money on every spin that I made.
In an effort to keep up with the growing trend of mobile gaming, Argo Casino has introduced mobile gaming.
Well, out of curiosity, I downloaded this App and from my own experience, it seems like the casino was in a hurry to develop it.
The App rarely connected to my internet, and on the few occasions that it did, I had to keep on logging back since most of the time I was logged out automatically.
Bonuses are a huge selling point for online casinos. Argo casino has not been left out in its bid to entice newcomers with attractive bonuses. The casino offers a number of bonuses that I will outline below:
Welcome Bonus Package
This is the most detailed bonus from this casino. With it, you will receive 100% on the initial deposit - up to €200.
The second deposit will earn you up to €300, while a third one will award you up to €340.
The weekly fringe benefit of 30%
This one awards you a minimum of €10 while the maximum that you can get is €500.
Every weekend, Argo Casio awards all active gamers with a 40% deposit supplement. However, the maximum deposit amount with this type of bonus is € 1000.
Argo Casino also runs a loyalty program that involves active users who are using real funds. With this program, you earn special bonuses referred to as "Jasons". These "Jason" can also be converted to either real cash or some bonuses.
However, the high wagering of 40x that is demanded by this casino kept me way from accepting these bonuses.
Argo Casino Regulation
Argo Casino is licensed and their licence has been confirmed by the "JоcSystems as N.V (No. 8048 / JAZ2015-008). It was issued by from Antillephоne N.V."3
My concern with most online casinos is their ability to safeguard customer’s private data. Argo has done well in this area, and they use strong encryption software to ensure that private data can't be accessed.
Argo has several banking options that include Credit/Debit cards, Skrill, Neteller, Bank Trafer, Bitcoin, Paysafecard,Trustkly, GiroPay, and PoLi.
I deposit some money here using my Neteller account. The money was credited to my player account instantly but this was not the same case when I tried to cash out some profit that I had made.
It’s a total nightmare making a withdrawal on Argo Casino, and it took me close to 7 days for this casino to release my money.
Additionally, Argo Casino has put the maximum withdrawal at €1500 per day, €3,000 per week while the maximum allowed per month is €9,000.
This is just ridiculous and a big disadvantage to high rollers.
Argo Casino does not allow players from several countries that include the United Kingdom.
Other countries include Australia, France, French Guiana, French Polynesia, French Southern Territories, French Southern and Antarctic Territories, Israel, Moldova, Netherlands Antilles, South Africa, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, U.S. Miscellaneous Pacific Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the United States.
Customer support is quite poor. I reached out to their Live Chat to get assistance after the withdrawal took more time that they had promised.
The person on the other end kept telling me “it will be processed soon”. Actually, I have no doubt that this response was either automatic or robotic.
You will be lucky to get a response if you ever send a query to Argo Casino via email.
However, if your issue is not too complex, you can visit their FAQ section for some quick answers.
Argo online casino has does well with the number and variety of games that they provide. However, there is a lot of work that needs to go into their website before I can give them an A score.
First and foremost, this casino needs to improve the graphics on their site that are not attractive at all.
I was actually not amused by the casino’s decision to keep pushing the names of the recent winners to my face.
This tactic is common with online casinos, which is used to entice newcomers into joining them.
High wagering fee (40x) for the bonus is the other thing that this casino needs to look into.
There is also the App that takes forever to load a simple slot game. This App is not the best that an online casino can work with, and some improvements would do.
Again, there is the issue of the withdrawal limit. This is actually the first time I’m seeing such low limits, and I bet most high rollers will steer clear this casino just because of this limit.
