Pirateplay Casino Review
Is a pirate casino with a Curacao license the closest we get to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ today? Because that’s exactly what Pirateplay is. A genuine pirate casino with treasure chests, cannonballs and humour. Because of humor, they must have those who launch a casino with both a logo and a name that can easily be associated with file sharing and torrenting. The question then becomes; who will be robbed and who will secure the treasure? Read more about what Kingbonus’s reviewer has experienced at Pirateplay casino. For the occasion, undercover and dressed as Captain Sabretooth.

About the welcome bonus
The welcome bonus for Pirateplay is a very acceptable 100% up to €500match bonus. Remember that this is a regular sticky bonus . The minimum deposit to qualify for the bonus is €20. The good thing is that you don’t have to use it on your first deposit. The welcome bonus is available for 3 weeks from the day you open the account. You can make a small deposit with ‘raw’ money to test Pirateplay first if you want. Or many. It will be up to each individual.
Max bet is €5 bet on all types of games
25X (d+b) is the wagering requirement on the bonus. In plain text, this means that you must convert both the deposit + the bonus money. On a 100% match bonus, this is equivalent to 50X wager on the bonus only.
The list of games that are not legal to play with bonus money in your account is quite long. Here, each individual player must record and update himself. This is important, because Pirateplay confirms that said machines are not blocked for games with an active bonus. If you do that anyway, all winnings will be confiscated.
The treasure chests, or loot boxes as they are also referred to, come without turnover requirements for the contents. If there are free spins in the box, this means that any winnings from these are 0X wager. The same if it is bonus money.
Pirateplay has a loyalty/VIP program which they call the Pirate Expedition. The thresholds for advancing a level are respectively €1000, €10,000, €100,000 and finally the maximum level with €1,000,000 in turnover.
It goes without saying that the contents of the treasure chests will reflect your turnover at the casino. Both the frequency and value of free spins and cash bonuses will increase as you progress through the different levels.
All contents of all treasure chests are without turnover requirements and can be taken straight out if you wish.
We find a timely deposit menu at Pirateplay. Visa and Mastercard, crypto and an e-Wallet in the form of MiFinity. If we break down the crypto menu, we find a large number of recognized currencies. Specifically Bitcoin, Tether, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Bitcoin Cash and Tron. Incidentally, you can also play with various crypto currencies if you deposit with them. In other words, this is very reminiscent of a genuine crypto-casino .
The withdrawal menu largely reflects the deposit menu. If you deposit by card, you will be directed to a bank transfer. MiFinity deposit means withdrawal to MiFinity, and crypto the same. We raised our eyebrows over the minimum withdrawal amount to the bank. €480 is the minimum you can put in for withdrawals by bank transfer. We thought for a moment that we were faced with a typing error, but live support confirmed after an inquiry that the sum is correct.
For all other withdrawal methods, €20 is the minimum. Furthermore, we note that Pirateplay does not charge a commission or fee for processing withdrawals.
The withdrawal limits for Pirateplay are respectively €7500/week and €15,000/month. Exceptions can be made for VIP customers at the casino’s discretion.
Games and game providers
Pirateplay offers a whopping 5,000+ games and slots, distributed across 104 different providers. Then one would expect that here you will find absolutely everything worth playing. But no. To our astonishment, Hacksaw shines with its absence. As well as missing some titles from NoLimit City, such as Tombstone RIP and Misery Mining.
Live casino / table games
Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play are in place in the live casino at Pirateplay. As well as a handful of other smaller providers of live casino games. This means that absolutely all popular Game shows are in place. Then we are of course talking about Crazy Time, Sweet Bonanza Candyland, Monopoly, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt and many, many more. Even newcomer Crazy Coin Flip is in place.
Remember that the live casino only counts 10% against turnover if you play with bonus money.
Customer service at Pirateplay is open 24/7 and usually offers assistance in English or Google translated. We contacted them several times during the course of this review and received sober responses each time. It could take some time between feedbacks, but we appreciate that. Because it indicates that the person is actually looking for the correct answer by actively searching or asking others.
Design and ease of use
It is simple and functional. That is probably the most comprehensive description we can come up with. Menus for searching slots and providers work fine. We might miss a section for FAQs, so that one can search for generic answers to simple questions instead of going into live chat all the time. But, for the most part, we are very satisfied with how Pirateplay is presented.
Pirateplay allows uploading of documents as soon as you open an account. The first thing we did was submit ID proof and proof of address. Otherwise, we recommend everyone to do the same. It didn’t take that many hours before this was approved. But we never received an email confirming this. We only observed that the status was changed to approved inside our profile.
Apart from the usual documents for ID, address and payment method, we also find SOF uploading. Because who does not have control over all abbreviations, SOF stands for ‘Source of Funds’. This means that at one point or another you may be asked to prove where the money you play for comes from. This is done to comply with international AML (Anti Money Laundering) regulations. However, we are not very used to seeing this at casinos with a Curacao license. We therefore contacted customer service once again, and they confirmed that regular customers with a normal playing pattern will not be asked to provide this. On the other hand, they have internal rules that if your deposits exceed a total of €25,000, such a procedure will be initiated.
All in all, this means that Pirateplay casino takes verification and AML seriously.
Pirateplay operates with DAMA NV’s gambling license from Curacao. They are a brand new casino that is only a couple of months old. Thus, they go straight into the new casino 2022 category . They have wisely chosen to focus only on slots and live casino. And they do that very well. There are not many casinos that can offer so many slots distributed among so many providers from day 1. Note that this means that they use Dama NV’s license, as many other casinos also do. The vast majority of sites that use the same gambling license are independent of each other. It is somewhat important to understand.
We are partly very impressed by what Pirateplay has achieved as a product. Of course we find something to put our finger on. Let’s start with the wagering requirement of 25x (d+b). It’s not very high, but still a bit above what we like to see. On the other hand, kudos to them for not imposing turnover requirements on any of the free spins or cash bonuses. It commands respect.
The minimum withdrawal of €480 for bank transfer is another thing that we think is a little too much.
What we think least about must be that the list of excluded games with bonus money is quite long. And even worse, the games are not blocked from playing if you try. We hope that Pirateplay can sort this out as soon as possible.
Anyway, we strongly believe that Pirateplay can be a worthy newcomer that deserves the trust of those who want to try a new site with a nice welcome bonus.
