Available bonuses at West Casino

West Casino offers its players various bonuses.

Welcome bonus

The welcome bonus is divided into three parts. Players will first receive a 100% match bonus up to a maximum amount of €200, as well as 100 free spins. Players will receive this bonus after they make their first deposit to their account. The free spins are valid for the online slot game Guns N Roses, developed by NetEnt. West Casino calls the second part a reload bonus, though it is still part of the welcome bonus. This bonus is received once players make their second deposit. Players will receive a 50% match bonus up to a maximum of €200 bonus money.

Players receive the third and final part of the welcome bonus with their third deposit. This bonus consists of a 50% match bonus up to €200, as well as 100 free spins. The free spins can be redeemed at the Volcano Riches slot machine  from game developer Quickspin. Players will thus receive a maximum of €600 bonus money and 200 free spins.

Skrill bonus

Most online casinos do not offer bonuses to customer who use Skrill as a payment service. West Casino is one of the few exceptions to this rule. They even offer a separate bonus for these customers.

They will then attain the rank of West Elite.

Best slot games

West Casino offers quite an extensive array of games from many different reputable game providers. They offer games from providers such as Play’n GO, Evolution, NetEnt, iSoftBet, Red Tiger and Relax Gaming. Some games are clearly more popular than others, however.

Great Rhino Megaways

Today, as a slots provider, you no longer count if you do not have a Megaways slot. And for online casinos, Megaways slots are also very lucrative. All the more reason for Pragmatic Play to also enter into a partnership with Big Time Gaming and to make Megaways slots under license. Great Rhino Megaways is their first major Megaways release, and while its clear they played it safe, the game is great nonetheless. They have already released a fairly successful normal Great Rhino video slot and also the theme (wild animals in Africa) has been done dozens of times.

How does the Great Rhino Megaways slot work?

The game works as a standard Megaways game, but the general game features are still somewhat different:

  • Six reels with a maximum of 8 symbols per reel (max 6 symbols on reel 1 and reel 6);
  • Bets from 0.20 euros to 100 euros per spin;
  • Up to 200,704 Megaways;
  • Falling symbols;
  • High variance: win up to 20,000 x total bet;
  • High symbols (wild animals) pay between 1.50 x and 50 x the bet on a 6-of-a-child;
  • The card symbols pay out between 1 x and 1.5 x the bet at 6 the same.

There is also a Super Bet option. This will cost players 25% of their regular bet and places extra scatters on the reels. This doubles the chance of winning a free spins bonus. You also benefit from a slightly higher Return to Player: without Bonus Bet, the RTP is 96.47% and with it it is 96.58%.

Free spins bonus

4, 5 or 6 scatters (the gold coins with the rhino on them) activate the bonus round.

Players now get to choose between four different options, with the number of free spins depending on the number of scatters that the bonus has activated:

  • 5, 9 or 13 free spins with an x 10 multiplier
  • 10, 14 or 18 free spins with an x 5 multiplier
  • 15, 19 or 23 free spins with an x 1 multiplier
  • Mystery Choice: mystery free spins in combination with a mystery multiplier

During the free spins, the famous progressive multiplier is active: each winning spin creates a +1 multiplier. It is also possible to earn extra free spins: 3 or 4 scatters entitle you to +5 and +10 free spins.

Big Bass Bonanza

Big Bass Bonanza is an online slot machine from Reel Kingdom, a game developer working exclusively for Pragmatic Play. Earlier, Reel Kingdom already came with a number of simple fruit video slots and the Book of Ra clone Return of the Dead. Now it’s Reel Time Gaming’s Turn of Fishin’ Frenzy . Fishin’ Frenzy is a wildly popular slot machine in German gambling halls, slot machines in gas stations and nightclubs. Blueprint already came with Fishin’ Frenzy Power 4 Slots and Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways.

The fun of Fishin’ Frenzy and therefore also Big Bass Bonanza is catching fish in the bonus game. Players do that by turning a lot of fish in combination with at least one angler. The value per fish in Big Bass Bonanza can be up to 500 times the original bet. Big Bass Bonanza is (again) not an original release of Reel Kingdom, but one with a good payout percentage and a reasonable profit potential. Players play with 96.71 percent payout percentage. And per bonus game you can take up to 2,100 times your bet. With the maximum bet that is € 525,000.00.

How does the Big Bass Bonanza slot machine work?

Players play with a minimum of € 0.10 per spin and with a maximum of € 250.00 per spin. With 10 paylines, that makes a minimum of € 0.01 and a maximum of € 25.00 per payline. In the base game players can take up to 2,000 times the bet per payline per combination. You take that 2,000 times the bet per payline with five floats or a combination of five floats with Wild symbols. The fisherman, with a large sea bass in his hands, is the Wild symbol. The other symbols are a combination of fishing vests and playing cards. Payouts start from 50 times the bet per payline for three tens. The fish also pay out in the base game.

Bonuses

Big Bass Bonanza only becomes really fun in the bonus. To get there, players first have to spin at least three scatter symbols in one spin.

The more scatters the more free spins:

  • 3 scatter symbols give you 10 free spins.
  • 4 scatter symbols give you 15 free spins.
  • and with 5 scatter symbols you start with 20 free spins.

For every fourth Wild symbol players spin during free spins, they get 10 extra spins. The multiplier for the cash prices for the fish is also increased. The first time to x2, then to x3 and after the third time re-triggering it becomes x10. It can be re-triggered up to three extra free spins three times. The free spins bonus also stops once the player reaches 2,100 times their bet. That’s the maximum profit on this Big Bass Bonanza slot machine. Players get the prices that are listed with the fish when you turn fish in combination with a Wild symbol. On the fish there are prizes from 2 to 50 times your bet. That can therefore increase to 500 times the original bet per piece.

Smugglers Cove

Smugglers Cove is played on a 5×3 playing field that includes 20 paylines. Players can win a payout of 10,000 times their bet. The minimum bet in Smugglers Cove is €0.20 per round and the maximum is €100 per round. The payout percentage is 96.5%. This is higher than the average, which can lead to nice prizes for lucky players. Smugglers Cove also includes a number of features that make the game challenging.

How does the slot machine work?

The playing field consists of 5 reels and 3 rows. The 20 paylines that are included in this are static. This means that players only have to choose their bet before they start playing and do not have to take into account betting on specific lines in order to win. In Smugglers Cove, players must ensure that they land at least 3 of the same symbols on a payline to win. The count works one way, from left to right starting at the far left reel. As soon as players open the slot machine, the default bet is set to €2. If players find this too much or too little, they can easily adjust this with the appropriate buttons on the bottom. Smugglers Cove has 11 different symbols. Three of these are special symbols that play a major role in triggering certain features. Furthermore, there are 5 symbols with a high value and 4 with a low value.

Bonus features of Smugglers Cove

Wild symbol

The first special symbol is the Wild symbol. The Wild symbol has a dual role. When activated it replaces every paying symbol in the playing field, which increases the number of chances of winning considerably. In addition, the Wild in this slot machine is also the symbol with the highest value and gives depending on the number you land on a payline between 5 and 10 times your bet as a profit. The symbol can land on any reel in the field.

Treasure Bonus

The second special symbol is the gold coin. If players land 5 or more of them during one round, they trigger the Treasure Bonus. The more coins, the higher the price is of course. The Super Coin applies a random multiplier between x2 and x10 and is applied to the winnings of the feature. Also lands only on reel 5.

Free Spins

The third special symbol in Smugglers Cove is the Scatter symbol. If a player lands 3 or more of them here, they trigger between 8 and 20 Free Spins, depending on the number of symbols landed. If players manage to land 3 Scatters at the same time during the feature, they will earn 8 extra Free Spins. Players can trigger the treasure bonus while using free spins, with the difference that the Super Wild and Super Coins are absent, but you only need 3 coins to trigger the feature. The reward is higher within the Free Spins, with a maximum of 10,000x the bet on 15 coins.

Ante Bet

Finally, with this last feature players can ensure that the chance of 3 Scatter symbols increases. With a bet of €1, this means that your total bet becomes €1.25.
