|Software & Games:|
A pink backdrop with scrolling pictures of women captured in various day to day activities while promoting different welcome bonuses… I think it’s safe to say that Pink Casino is geared toward women. Well, ok, it wasn’t much of a leap as the information at the bottom of the page says “Casino for Ladies.”
Aside from the visual presentation, there really isn’t anything that stands out that should or would be for women only. It’s just a hook and something that makes this casino stand out from the rest.
You’ve got a casino, live casino, and bingo section provided by many of today’s top software providers.
A real standout feature, though, is the ability to come on board by using a no deposit bonus and then transfer some money in to take advantage of a traditional new player welcome package. It’s a beneficial combination and one that you don’t come across very often.
368 games out of the 400+ casino games can be played in mobile format or there’s an app available if you prefer playing games that way. While you won’t find as many table games as most casinos offer, you will be able to see a few video poker options in the mix.
With over 350 slots from companies like Microgaming, IGT, and NetEnt, as well as 16 others, you’ll be able to spin the reels on some fan favorites like Baywatch, Austin Powers, Cleopatra, Cirque du Soleil Kooza, and Monopoly Bring the House Down.
Pink primarily targets its UK-based clientele with banking in Pound Sterling only. Withdrawals take anywhere from three to five business days, and £20 is all you need to initiate a payment.
The atmosphere may be feminine, but the custom casino and generous bonus programs cater to all.
Who Can Play at the Pink Casino?
The Pink Casino was born in 2012 and is the product of IP & S, also known as Intellectual Property and Software Limited. The company has secured the necessary UK Gambling Commission licensing for its primary British clientele. Everyone else is under the Alderney Gambling regulation.
I usually list out the geographical restrictions in this section. But, this time, it’s easier to reference the jurisdictions that are accepted. If you are a resident of any of the following areas, you can register and place real money wagers with the Pink Casino:
- The United Kingdom
- Isle of Man
- New Zealand
- Sweden or Switzerland
I’m a proponent of using multiple software companies as it creates a bespoke casino and is much more beneficial to players. The following developers provide the games hosted on Pink Casino:
- Evolution Gaming
- Blueprint Gaming
- Scientific Games
- High Games
- Red Tiger
- Core Gaming
- and Games Warehouse
If you are familiar with online casinos, you’re probably accustomed to seeing products by IGT, Microgaming, NetEnt, and a few of the others, but Eyecon, Core Gaming, Bede, and High Games may be new to you. The beauty of combining companies at various levels of prominence is that players not only get to play their favorites, but they also get to try out the latest in slot innovation.
The Good Stuff
Bespoke Slot Collection
Yes, there are many online casinos available to players from Britain but, in addition to the unique feminine theme, the casino offers a collection that you won’t find everywhere else. Combining software companies results in a unique catalog of games. Pink doesn’t provide the typical progressive jackpot slots that are well-known in the virtual gaming world. Instead, there are 26 that aren’t common to most casino sites.
A No Deposit AND Deposit Welcome
Brand new players can take advantage of one of three no cash offers before they deposit anything into their betting account. Then, they can also claim a traditional three-part welcome package when they’re ready to invest some money. The rollover is quite steep for the no deposit bonus as it’s approximately 99 times, but the regular deposit match wagering requirement is lowered to 20 times on the bonus/deposit combination.
There’s Bingo Too!
In addition to the casino and live casino, Pink offers its players 24 hours a day bingo access. Different rooms offer various games, but the 90-ball bingo is up and running around the clock. So, any time of the day or night, bingo fans can get in on some number calling action.
The Bad Stuff
Limited Payment Options
Players in the United Kingdom have plenty of choices in how they fund online gambling accounts. There are so many viable and easily approved methods ranging from prepaid to e-wallets, as well as credit and debit cards. While Paysafe and Trustly are added to the list of deposit options, a Visa or Mastercard is required for a pay-out. Pink explicitly states that it won’t issue a check payment.
Table Game Variety
The table game section is 21 games total, but that also includes video poker. Roulette and Blackjack are the focus, but Three Card Brag is also included as it’s a favorite of British players. The casino could benefit from craps, baccarat, and some additional poker options to round out the collection for players who prefer tables to slots.
The entire casino is just over 400 games, and 368 of them can be played on smartphones and tablets. I pulled them up on an iPad just using my mobile browser. If you’re a fan of apps, though, there is a Pink Casino app in the Apple store. There’s also an Android version that you can download directly from the homepage of pinkcasino.co.uk.
Even though there are few differences in the gaming catalog, there are more significant differences in the user experience depending on the format you decide to use.
For example, the main site is divided up first into casino, live casino, and bingo. From there, when you enter the casino, you’ll select from slots, jackpot games, table, and instant win. On the mobile version, everything is combined: not just the slots, but all games. I did scroll through and approximated 350 slot versions and 18 combined table, instant win, and video poker selections.
Each graphic that depicts a different title has some features that you may appreciate as well. You can click a button for Demo Play or Real Cash Play. Additionally, you can opt to review the game info to familiarize yourself with the rules. The multi-option presentation disappears when you use your tablet or smartphone, though.
Eight video poker games are factored into the 21 game table area with a few of them showing up in the mobile casino.
Even though there aren’t that many selections, video poker players should appreciate Ultimate X Poker in three, five, and ten game versions. Ultimate X is a game that’s frequently found in brick and mortars, but it’s rare to come across it online.
- Triple Play Draw Poker
- Five Play Draw Poker
- Ten Play Draw Poker
- Bonus Poker
- Match Times Play
- Ultimate X Three Play
- Ultimate X Five Play
- Ultimate X Ten Play
Since video poker takes up some of the spots in this 21-game section, you’re left with 13 openings for traditional table games. The collection doesn’t include baccarat or craps. Instead, it focuses on blackjack and roulette with a Three Card Brag table (a UK favorite!) in the mix as well.
- Blackjack (three versions)
- Perfect Pairs Blackjack
- Classic Blackjack Gold
- Three Card Brag
- Three Wheel Roulette
- European Roulette
- Key Bet Roulette
- Double Bonus Spin
- Triple Bonus Spin
- Monopoly Roulette
If you enjoy slots, you have plenty of them from which to choose. As I mentioned when I outlined the software availability, having some of the giants combined with the newer companies, results in a custom casino with the right blend of slot games.
You may find the jackpot games to be quite interesting. They’re not the usual suspects here. You’re not offered those “megas” like Mega Jackpots or Mega Fortune or Mega Moolah. Instead, there are some recognizable titles plus some others that I bet are new to you.
- Top Cat
- Romeo and Juliet
- Genie Jackpots
- The Pig Wizard
- Super Spinner Bar X
- Worms Reloaded
- Super Diamond Deluxe
- Cupid Wild At Heart
- Count Duckula
- Angel Princess
- Deal or No Deal
- Vikings of Fortune
- Diamond Wild
- Star Spinner
- Paws of Fury
- The Naked Gun
- Diamond Jackpots
- Austin Powers
- Rolling Stone Age
- Neon Reels
- Gong Xi Fa Cai
- …plus a few specialty game options
- Rainbow Jackpots
- Rainbow Riches
- Wish Upon a Jackpot
- Totem Lightning
- Genie Jackpots
- Thunderstruck II

- Emoji Planet
- Hexbreaker 2
- Michael Jackson
- Ooh Aah Dracula
- Siberian Storm
- Wheel of Fortune
- Hercules High and Mighty
- Family Guy
Pull Tabs, Keno, Scratchcards… Specialty games is a handy section to have for anyone who isn’t comfortable with or just doesn’t like traditional casino varieties. There are a few of these included for mobile players as well. But, mobile players do need to scroll through all games to find out what’s available to them.
- Deal or No Deal Scratch
- Beehive Bedlam
- Grabba Dabba Dough
- Hi-Lo Gambler
- Scratch 4 Gold
- Scratch 4 Rubies
- Scratch 4 Emeralds
- Scratch 4 Diamonds
- Jackpots of Goo Instant
- Leapin’ Leprechauns
- Ultimate Keno
- Pot Luck Pull Tab
- Sunset Reels Pull Tab
Fortunately, the live casino picks up a bit of the slack from the regular table game area by offering a baccarat table. I know that not everyone will opt for a live dealer table, but those who do have a few games that aren’t in the computer-play section.
- Live Roulette
- Live Blackjack
- Live Baccarat
- Live Poker
- NetEnt Live Roulette
- NetEnt Live Blackjack
- NetEnt Common Draw
In addition to the casino, there’s a bingo area featuring 90 Ball, 75 Ball, and Speed Bingo. While some of the games are offered during limited hours, the 90 Ball room is open 24/7 for “round the clock” games.
You can easily find the Bingo room as there’s a prominently placed link in the top menu of pinkcasino.co.uk.
Pink welcomes new players in a slightly different way than most of its competitors by implementing a two-stage introduction to the casino.
First, new players have their choice from three different no deposit offers so they can get their feet wet and try things out without investing. After that, there’s a three-tier traditional deposit match welcome package.
As long as a new player hasn’t transferred in any money before, she (or he) can claim up to three deposit matches. I’m going to fill you in on the basics of these alternatives, but I also suggest that you head over to Pink Casino’s promotions page and thoroughly review all of the ins and outs of the bonuses you’re particularly interested in to avoid any bonus misuse.
Different stipulations apply to each offer so you’ll want to be sure you have a comprehensive understanding before you commit yourself to anything.
No Deposit Bonuses
Offer Option One: 10X Wins on first ten spins
- To claim this, you have to enter credit or debit card information even though you won’t be charged and the value of this one only amounts to £1. Hmmm…
- If you accept this reward, you end up with a £1 credit in your account, just enough for ten 10p spins. If you prefer, you can risk it all on one £1 spin instead.
- There’s an enhanced payout of ten times on wins that will apply to your free games. It’s only on the first £1 staked but can help you to build up your credits. That’s the good news. The challenging part, though, is that you have a £990 wagering requirement to fulfil before you can initiate a withdrawal and the most you can claim is £50 as you’re a non-depositing player at this point.
Offer Option Two: £5 Free – double wins
- Even though the award is slightly different, it’s structured similarly to the first option. You receive a £5 no deposit bonus instead of £1 but collect double winnings instead of ten times. Everything else is the same in that you have a £990 wagering target and a maximum of £50 that can be withdrawn.
Offer Option Three: £10 Free – regular pay
- Once again, you’ll need to play £990 through before anything is cashable. In this case, you end up with a £10 bonus credit, but all of your wins are paid out as is with no multiplier applied.
Welcome Bonus Package
Before I get into the three deposit matches that you can take advantage of, I do want to provide you with a few more details on how Pink Casino structures its bonus programs.
The deposit matching rewards come with a 20X rollover that applies to both the bonus you’re given as well as the funds that you transferred into your betting account. Even though they’re combined for the wagering requirement, each is maintained separately so you can see how much cash and bonus play money you have at any given time.
Your cash always plays first, and any winnings you collect while you’re betting with your actual credit balance gets added to the bonus balance. Be sure that you are careful to ultimately meet your playthrough as you would forfeit your bonus and all of your winnings if you cash out of the casino before everything is completed.
Bonuses are sticky so you won’t ever receive the amount of the award as it’s just used to help you build up your credits. They’re deducted prior to anything being paid out to you, though.
Also, review the games that do apply to your wagering requirement. Most slots come in at full value, but a few only provide at a rate of 50%. Video Poker and Video Blackjack contribute at 10%, while Roulette won’t help you out at all.
The Three-part Welcome Package
A minimum of £10 is needed to claim each bonus.
- Deposit One: 100% up to £150
- Deposit Two: 75% up to £100
- Deposit Three: 50% up to £50
Once you’re a regular player of Pink Casino, you will be able to participate in some one-off promotions. The following are a few examples of the types of offers you can claim. The specific reward programs may change but should have similar value.
25 Free Spins – paid as cash
Instead of winning to build up a bonus balance as you do with the welcome offer, this reward provides you with a bump to your real money credit balance. The actual value depends on how much you transfer into your account.
If you deposit and bet anywhere from £20 to £49, you end up with ten free spins on the Romeo and Juliet slot game. If you deposit and stake over £100, you get 10x £1 Super Spins, and in between those amounts, you get 25 free spins. The regular spins (not super spins) are played at £0.20 per spin with all pay lines activated.
£5,000 Cash Tournament
For a limited time, players earn points for play at the rate of one point for every £10 in bets. At the end of the contest period, the top 20 positions are paid out a total of £5,000 with the first place prize set at £2,000.
Let’s talk about money, specifically depositing it and, hopefully, withdrawing it. Although there are some financial options available to players in the United Kingdom, the Pink Casino has opted to maintain an abbreviated list of possibilities.
Visa and Mastercard are the primary ways to conduct business. Deposits can be made through a paysafecard or Trustly, but payouts are limited to credit and debit cards. There’s even a notation on the site that says the casino will not issue any checks for withdrawals.
Fortunately, the transactions are all fee-free, and the minimums are relatively low. £10 is all that’s needed for a deposit and £20 is enough for a cashout, with a daily allowable maximum of £10,000.
As far as the payout turnaround, there’s a 48-hour pending period where reverse withdrawals are allowed. Including the pending status, the process can take anywhere from three to five business days. This depends on your bank or financial services provider.
- Visa Debit
- Visa Electron
- Visa Debit
- Visa Credit
There is a publicized VIP Club, but there’s not much information provided as it appears to be individualized with its perks.
VIP members should receive cashback and reload bonuses each month as well as special promotions aside from what’s listed on the promotions page.
I think that most players would overwhelmingly say that Pink Casino provides more than adequate customer service.
You can email the department at [email protected] to get an answer within 24 hours. But, if you’re in a hurry, there is live chat availability.
I found Pink’s service agents to be available, cordial, and informative. We believe that should do the trick!
Would I Play at the Pink Casino?
I was apprehensive at first about the “Casino for Ladies” premise as I wasn’t sure what to expect. It is a very pink website with an apparent feminine flair, but you get past that almost immediately. I didn’t even notice it anymore as I combed through the gaming options and promotional offerings.
The downside to Pink is that it’s available in very few markets. It’s primarily designed for UK players but extends its service to a handful of other regions. It’s the opposite of most websites that have a few exclusions but allow most customers on board.
Also, cash outs are subject to a two-day pending period where reverse withdrawals are permitted. From there, the timeline runs anywhere from three to five business days; it would be helpful to have faster payments.
I admit, though, that I have more stringent guidelines when it comes to my perception of UK sites as there are so many and they compete for faster payouts and better overall service.
The site is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Alderney Gaming Commission, so customers should feel that they’re entering a safe and secure environment. I think that’s one of the most important things to look for; Pink promotes its licensing on the homepage.
I don’t really gravitate to bonus programs, but I do appreciate the double welcome offer of a no cash bonus and then a traditional deposit-match offer. That setup is not very common and should appeal to people who seek out these types of rewards.
As far as the casino itself, the slot banks are full, and they show up on mobile devices as well as the whole website version. The combination of software designers is pleasing but some of the more well-known games by Microgaming, in particular, aren’t included in the jackpots section.
Whether you’re specifically looking for bingo, slots or bonuses, or you live in the UK area and want to try out something new that has a different feel to it, it’s worth checking out the Pink Casino. Even though it’s technically a casino for ladies, I don’t think they’ll mind if you don’t have two x chromosomes.
