In a Nutshell
- Top highlights: Fun and bright-looking website; multi-layered rewards scheme
- VIP or loyalty programme: Yes
- Other offerings: Poker; bingo
Casino of Dreams emerged in the mid-2010s as one of a new wave of online casino games portals operating on the Broadway Gaming Group platform – others including the likes of Butlers Bingo, Lucky 247 and Rosy Bingo.
Today, it continues to offer hundreds of games encompassing the categories of slots, roulette, blackjack and poker, to name just a few, complemented by an intriguingly multi-layered rewards programme.
The promos and bonuses that any given casino site offers will always be instrumental in determining its appeal. It’s just as well, then, that Casino of Dreams seems to have done a lot of work in this regard, the perks that it presents to potential members including the likes of:
- A generous new-player bonus
- Daily deals
- Bonuses and promos on specific days of the week
- Free spins
- Loyalty rewards
Range of Casino Games
At the time of this review being written, there were some 450 games in total on offer at Casino of Dreams. The below were just a few of our reviewers’ favourites:
- Vegas Strip Blackjack
- Playboy Gold Jackpots
- Agent Jane Blonde Returns Online Slot
- Game of Thrones 15 Lines
- Live Casino Holdem
- All American Poker
As the aforementioned list also makes clear, you’ll find both generic and branded games at Casino of Dreams, the latter incorporating the logos and imagery of some of the most familiar household-name franchises.
Another thing that contributes considerably to an online casino’s appeal these days is, of course, the given site’s level of mobile optimisation.
If you like to play such games on your phone, you unfortunately won’t find a dedicated mobile app for Casino of Dreams in the obvious app stores – or at least, this wasn’t the case at the time of us writing this review. However, the site is still nicely smartphone-optimised if you visit it directly through your device’s web browser, complete with mobile-ready versions of games such as:
- North Storm
- Lost Vegas Survivors Scratch
- Beach Babes
- Vegas Single Deck Blackjack
- Double Double Bonus Poker
As stated above, both generic and branded titles are present and correct at Casino of Dreams. So, whether you’re in the mood to play something like Bridesmaids or the Jurassic Park Online Slot, or instead a game based on a less familiar theme such as Rock the Boat or Wild Orient, you’re sure to find just the thing to suit you here.
Such games include three-reel options, five-reel games, 3D slots, video slots and classic slots.
Generally speaking, the gaming categories at Casino of Dreams are very much the ones you’d expect – slots, roulette, blackjack and so on.
There is, though, also a poker section serving up such options as Deuces & Joker Power Poker, Live Three Card Poker and Bonus Poker Deluxe. Bingo is represented on the site too, in the form of Super Bonus Bingo and Pharaoh Bingo.
Software and Graphics
Unlike a lot of casino sites nowadays, Casino of Dreams largely depends on one software provider as a source for its games – Microgaming.
That’s potentially both a good and bad thing, as while Microgaming is one of the most renowned games developers in the online casino industry, some players may yearn for titles from the other highly regarded software providers out there.
Nonetheless, Microgaming’s presence does help to ensure consistently visually pleasing and slick-to-play casino games. It’s also not quite the only software provider represented on the site, as Evolution Gaming is on hand, too, to make Casino of Dreams’ live casino section a comprehensive and satisfying one.
The good impression continues around the main Casino of Dreams site; the tasteful combination of dark blues used across the site makes it an easy-on-the-eye place to play casino games, while the navigation system is logical and straightforward to get to grips with.
One of the aspects of Casino of Dreams that caught our eye most when reviewing the site was unquestionably the Slot Sprints section, which gives players the opportunity to compete with each other for rankings on a potentially highly lucrative leaderboard.
It’s just one example of how Casino of Dreams is continually looking to keep its all-round gaming experience fresh for novice and experienced players alike.
Loyalty or VIP Programme
The Rewards scheme at Casino of Dreams is based on a system of Rewards Points earned over a 30-day rolling period. There are two ways in which you can earn such points – by depositing or by wagering on any casino game, with the former giving you 15 Rewards Points for each £1, and the latter granting you a single Reward Point for each £1.
The five Rewards levels in all – right up to Level 5, which you’ll only reach if you accumulate 100,000 or more points over a 30-day period – enables you to enjoy all manner of perks, including daily deals, casino bonuses, free spins and much more.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
While the range of accepted payment methods at Casino of Dreams isn’t the broadest we’ve ever seen – PayPal being a notable omission – it’s still probably good enough to cater adequately to the requirements of the vast majority of the site’s players.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
|Instant Payments by Citadel||£0||Instant||£20-£25,000|

Despite the lack of a customer support telephone number, Casino of Dreams does a decent job of addressing its members’ help needs.
Simply clicking ‘Help’ at the bottom of the page on either the desktop or mobile site, for instance, will take you to a comprehensive ‘Help Centre’ providing answers to such common queries as “How long will my withdrawal take?” and “Can I access my account from a different country?”
Even if your own question isn’t answered here, you can get a quick response when you activate the site’s ‘Live Chat’ facility – and a customer support email address is provided, too.
Who Can Play?
The site makes clear in its terms and conditions that it only permits account registration by individuals from the United Kingdom. Indeed, if you “are domiciled or reside” in any other part of the world, you can expect any bets you place to be voided and any deposits refunded, less an administrative fee calculated as 10% of the total deposits you make on the site.
