About the Welcome Bonus
You therefore get 3 options when you register and make your first deposit. If you deposit with a Visa/MC card or MiFinity e-Wallet, you can choose between the Casino and the odds welcome bonus. If you deposit with Crypto, on the other hand, you get the biggest bonus of 100% up to €500.
The welcome bonus you get at Vikingbet is Sticky . After deposit you will see two wallets. One with own money, and one with bonus money. As you win, the winnings will go into the account for bonus money. Regardless of how much winnings you collect, the balance for your own money will be depleted as you continue to play. The big difference is that you are not subject to any bonus restrictions on your own money.
The Casino and Crypto welcome bonus can only be used on slot machines, while the Odds bonus can only be used on sports betting.
The maximum bet when playing with the bonus money is €5.
Both Crypto and the Casino welcome bonus come with a wagering requirement of 40X. This is only on the bonus money, and thus a very acceptable offer in today’s market.
All deposit bonuses at Vikingbet are Sticky. You can use your own money (the deposit) on whatever you want. Slots, Odds and even bonus purchases (BB’s). Any winnings go into the bonus balance, and ultimately one must complete the turnover requirement of 40X bonus money received before it is released for withdrawal.
The odds bonus must be wagered a minimum of 6 times (6X), at a minimum of 1.75 in Odds.
Singles, combinations and system bets are allowed, including Liveodds. Multi bets must contain at least one choice with odds of 1.75
Vikingbet now offers a fixed casino re-load bonus of 50% up to €100 every Tuesday.
Vikingbet has a fixed weekly turnover tournament where the prize pool of €500 is distributed to the 10 players with the most turnover this week. Here we see that Vikingbet is promoting this campaign as a Cashback tournament. Beloved child has many names, but exactly in this case turnover tournament is the correct one to use.
You earn loyalty points from your first bet at Vikingbet. The points can eventually be exchanged for money. The 5 Loyalty levels that Vikingbet offers go from Beginner to Elite. You will earn faster and faster loyalty points as you advance through the different levels.
As mentioned, crypto is Vikingbet’s main investment. They offer crypto solutions via Coinspaid & Paycryptos. They work in the same way. .
If you are new to Crypto and feel that USDT and TRX are a bit too advanced, then Litecoin (LTC) is the cheapest solution for deposits of the most common Crypto Currencies.
If you want to deposit with ordinary money (FIAT), you have 2 different methods for Card deposits (VISA/MC). Directly and via accentpay.
Worth noting that Paygoo cards can be used for deposits at Vikingbet. Paygoo Prepaid MasterCard Reload can be purchased at Narvesen, 7/Eleven and YX-7/Eleven. You can fill the card with an optional amount between €20 and €150.
One can also use e-wallets such as MiFinity and eZeeWallet for deposits.
Deposit test with Crypto
We tested a deposit with crypto when we wrote this review. We went for the CoinsPaid solution as this is basically a safer solution for crypto transfers than direct deposits from your crypto wallet.
CoinsPaid is a Crypto payment provider that secures the shipment, and is especially recommended on days when the cryptocurrency fluctuates a lot. You have 15 minutes to start a transfer after you initiate a deposit here. We transferred the deposit in LTC from Binance, and on the first try we overlooked the fact that Binance deducts 0.001 LTC in fee. Since we copied the exact amount to transfer in LTC inside the deposit menu and pasted it into Binance, it was just too little for the deposit to be approved.
The shipment was of course received at Coinspaid, and we immediately received an e-mail with instructions to return it to Binance. This happened in 5 minutes, and we put in again. This time we made sure to add the fee on outbound shipping and everything went fine. The deposit was available after approx. 10 minutes into Vikingbet. On a Friday afternoon with particularly high traffic on the network, it’s not bad at all.
Of course, you can withdraw with Crypto in exactly the same number of variants as you deposit with.
Vikingbet has a withdrawal solution for banks , in addition to the MiFinity e-wallet. MiFinity is an e-wallet, i.e. an electronic wallet, and acts as an intermediary between the user and Vikingbet for both deposits and withdrawals.
The withdrawal limits at Vikingbet are set to:
- €2500 per day.
- €7500 per week
- €15,000 per month.
Games and game providers
Vikingbet offers almost 70 different game providers, and of course you will find all the well-known ones such as Pragmatics, Play’n Go, Nolimit, Relax, Hacksaw, BTG, Blueprint and Netent. Plus many many more. We miss, among other things, Thunderkick and ELK. But considering that Vikingbet is a brand new start-up, we do not overlook the fact that they will be in place eventually.
The odds service is provided by the world’s largest sportsbook provider Betradar. Betradar started in Trondheim 20 years ago, and is now based in Switzerland with almost 2,000 employees.
Betradar covers more than 750,000 events in 80+ sports from around the world. They provide odds on 550 leagues in 120 different countries, and cover a total of approximately 4,400 competitions (leagues, championships, tournaments, etc.).
In addition, they have developed Sportradar, which are advanced analysis programs used by many of the biggest football leagues around the world. This for e.g. to uncover match-fixing. In other words, no one can doubt the quality of the data Betradar has access to. Both when it comes to the dissemination of updated information, and odds setting for their clients.
Live casino / table games
Vikingbet also offers a huge selection of Live Casino, table and board games. Evolution Gaming, Ezugi and Pragmatic Play Live are probably the largest and most recognized suppliers of Live Casino. But Vikingbet also offers many more lesser-known studios. Regardless. Here you will find everything you could want from Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. All famous hits such as Crazy Time, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, Monopoly Live and Sweet Bonanza Candyland are in place. Plus infinitely many more.
Vikingbet offers full-fledged customer service via live chat and email. We are impressed. No more to say on that matter.
Design and ease of use
We get a blissful feeling of greatness within the Crypto Casino world when we enter Vikingbet. Without naming names. The page is pleasantly toned in terms of color choices. The search menus are incredibly detailed, both for those looking for unique suppliers and/or specific categories.
When it comes to odds and betting at Vikingbet, it almost goes without saying that Betradar delivers the best product available on the market.
All slot machines we tested worked painlessly. Fast loading, and absolutely no lag or any other symptoms of technical challenges against the suppliers’ servers.
Of course, we find some areas that can be improved. There is really nothing else to expect from such a newly started site. For example, we mention that the cataloging of game providers inside the casino is not quite 100%. Vikingbet offers the incredibly popular provider Hacksaw, but if you sort by all providers, you will not find Hacksaw listed. They have ended up in the folder for Microgaming, which also contains a light mix of other providers such as, for example. BTG. In addition to Microgaming of course.
Another thing we must highlight is that the list of ‘Recent winners’ that is scrolling on the front page of the Casino at Vikingbet is guaranteed to be correct and free from being ‘tampered with’. Not all sites can report this. There are always up-to-date and real users on the list. We know that for sure since we soon appeared ourselves, with the exact listing for the machine we tested.
Vikingbet’s mobile site is fantastically beautiful. Just as you would expect from a brand new and modern Crypto Casino.
You choose your preferred currency when you open an account with Vikingbet. Available currencies naturally reflect the market in which they offer their services.
Even though Vikingbet is a Crypto Casino, you don’t see anything of Crypto on the site as long as the deposit is in place. Everything will be perfectly converted to your chosen currency. Forget 10 different crypto wallets to keep track of like many other crypto sites operate with. At Vikingbet, everything is wonderfully tidy and clear.
Verification at Vikingbet requires normal KYC, and the menu for uploading the necessary documents is open under My profile – Confirmation. As always, here at Kingbonuswe encourage you to do this as soon as you have opened an account and before you start playing.
We here at Kingbonus always do thorough research when we test a new site. This time we became aware that Vikingbet received some moderate comments in various forums for crypto on the internet. The only reason for that is that Vikingbet requires KYC (as shown above) from its customers. On some crypto sites you can actually operate completely anonymously without verifying your identity. We at Kingbonus support both responsible gambling and the fight against money laundering at an international level.
Making a simple process to confirm their identity is the most effective way to exclude users with other intentions than exactly what an odds/casino site is intended for.
Vikingbet.io is a provider of potentially addictive services in the form of gambling. Vikingbet takes this seriously, and in August 2022 updated the site with a separate self-service menu for game control. Here, the individual player can set their limits in the form of time control, deposits and self-exclusion. The intervals for self-exclusion are respectively 1 day – 1 week – 1 month and – forever. We encourage all customers to actively use such aids if gaming stops being fun. And even worse, if gaming becomes a problem. You can read more about responsible gambling and gambling addiction here .
Vikingbet operates with a gambling license from Curacao, under the trade name SG International NV
Vikingbet is 100% Norwegian, and Norwegians are behind the day-to-day operations. As most people know, it is not possible to get a Norwegian license to offer online gambling.
Here at Kingbonus, we consistently refer to Vikingbet as a Norwegian-owned company, and it is important to understand the legal difference between that and a ‘Norwegian side’.
If you have taken the time to read the entire review above, you know for sure that our overall impression is solidly good. But, having said that, no review can trump the combined experiences of our many members who have tested Vikingbet since we published their site in March this year (2022). Absolutely all feedback we have received is unanimously positive. 100% score in customer satisfaction during the 5 months we have had cooperation with Vikingebet.io is quite unique. And what is repeated in every single comment is the extremely good customer service and follow-up by the many people who run Vikingbet. Is there something you are wondering about or are bothered about? Just contact them and you will get all possible help!
