There is also a mobile platform, though it wasn't secure as of this NogaBet Casino review. After accessing the NogaBet mobile site with no deposit, the domain was flagged as "Not Secure", meaning that no encryption was available to protect the transmission of sensitive data. This is in contrast to the highly secure desktop platform, which will be explained later in the review.
After visiting on mobile, there's a button to wager with real money and a second to play for fun with no deposit. On mobile, "Lite Mode" is a useful feature that can be activated to speed up loading times by cutting back on the visual standards. Review readers with a high-speed connection are unlikely to need this, of course.
And now we reach a major drawback of NogaBet where no live casino tables are available for our review readers (only virtual casino tables are available). If this is a deal-breaker, then look to Casino PlayNow Canada, which is now carrying live dealer tables from Evolution Gaming.
Exactly 197 games were available for this Canada review of NogaBet Casino. Only 10 of those were classified as casino tables, which feels low when there isn't a live casino. However, Noga Bet Casino can at least cover the basics by delivering American Roulette, European Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Red Dog, Pai Gow Poker and Ride 'Em Poker.
Between slots and i-Slots, review readers can explore 164 options within the instant-play lobby. Every slot is designed by Rival and focuses on a different theme and can be enhanced with in-game bonus features, such as free spins in some of the better slot releases.
Review readers can enter slots with no deposit and look for free spins and other bonus features. The slots that we encountered with free spins were Cosmic Quest: Mystery Planets, Pigskin Payout, As the Reels Turn, Jolly Roger's Jackpot, Scary Rich 3 and A Switch in Time.
Video poker, meanwhile, comes in several well-known varieties, including Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Double Joker, Tens or Better and Deuces & Joker. The speciality section can then provide instant-wins such as Penguin Payday, Cast for Cash, Beach Bums, Keno and a few bingo variants.
Following a review of all available RTPs for Rival Gaming, the following payout percentages have been estimated for NogaBet Casino:
NogaBet Casino has a small range of five progressive jackpot slots, which feature Money Magic, Strike Gold, Jackpot 5x Wins, 1 Million Reels BC and Major Moolah. To the best of our knowledge, no millionaire winners have been reported from Casino NogaBet when performing this Canada review.
Initially, all NogaBet Casino accounts are created with no deposit. With access to the casino lobby, players can complete the account creation process by supplying a home phone number, address and currency. Considering NogaBet's unavailability in Canada as of this review, the only available currencies are USD, EUR, GBP, AUD and SAR (not CAD).
From the on-site options listed, deposits can be transferred by Skrill, Neteller, CASHlib, paysafecard, ecoPayz, MasterCard and VISA. Bitcoin deposits can also be made, though must be converted from the world's most valuable cryptocurrency. If possible, players should verify their account and use Skrill or Neteller to receive express withdrawals within 24 hours.
NogaBet Casino is relatively helpful for explaining bonus offers and banking options, though more could be done to deliver support. The introduction of on-site guides and frequently asked questions would help users review the features available. For any queries that can't be answered on the site, NogaBet can communicate with players seven days of the week by email or live chat.
When conducting this Canada review, we found that NogaBet Casino used encryption from Let's Encrypt Authority to protect the desktop gaming lobby. Unfortunately, the same encryption wasn't operational when we came to review the mobile casino site. As such, NogaBet's mobile platform is vulnerable to intrusion.
NogaBet doesn't impose a block on IP addresses from Canada. In our review, it was possible to access the instant-play lobby for several minutes from Canada and with no deposit. Review readers should be wary of bypassing country restrictions, however, as verification checks can deny unpermitted withdrawals.
A licence number from Curacao eGaming is listed by NogaBet. Curacao eGaming is a legitimate licensing jurisdiction and NogaBet must comply with any fairness testing. The only unfortunate element is that no results from testing were made available for this NogaBet Casino review.
NogaBet Casino is one of the quieter brands we've ever decided to review here at the site. There isn't much that can be learnt online, but we did identify 2010 as the probable year of opening, based on that being the starting year for the terms and conditions.
We also learnt that NogaBet Casino operates under the ownership of Great White Media B.V. - holder of the brand's Curacao eGaming licence. A link to the licence is supplied by the casino site and there's an option to file a complaint. Asking the licensing body to review the complaint is a smarter option for a brand that's under-reported and not highly regarded among portals that review online casinos.
NogaBet Casino accepts Great British residents despite operating without a UK Gambling Commission licence. Yet, no deposit can be processed from Canada players despite a Curacao eGaming licence being held. Now, here is the long list of restricted locations to review: Afghanistan, Canada, Estonia, France (including overseas locations), Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Macau, Netherlands Antilles, Tajikistan and US (including overseas locations).
Casino NogaBet is bold enough to operate on an unlicensed basis in some jurisdictions, yet was unable to serve Canada during our review, and this despite holding a Curacao eGaming licence. This lack of preparedness for Canada is compounded by the inability for players to wager bonus funds or free spins in CAD.
At Casino Noga Bet, the signup stages are much like any other site. During our review of the process, we found data fields for an email address, username, password, title, name, birthday and country. As you already know, Canada wasn't available on the country list as of this review, which is curious considering that NogaBet Casino is operating without a licence in the UK.
Curacao-licensed casinos are often accessible from here in Canada, though no deposit will be accepted by NogaBet until there's a change in policy from the operator. If any review readers can sign up, they'll be treated to daily bonus offers from the promotional calendar. The software selection could indeed be improved, but it won't concern players who prioritise bonus deals.
