Coral is one of the world’s biggest names in gambling, and here in the United Kingdom it’s presence is firmly established thanks to the thousands of high street shops that trade in almost every town and city countrywide.
Coral’s online casino has enjoyed similar levels of success, and is now one of the most popular online gaming sites out there, with millions of players logging on each week to enjoy the wide selection of games available.
Signing up with Coral Casino is simple, safe, and straightforward. There are no complex forms to fill out, you just need a few bits of personal information (name, address, date of birth etc) and you can begin playing pretty much right away.
Thanks to the impressively user friendly platform and multi browser compatibility, pretty much anyone with a computer or mobile device and working internet connection should be able to use the site.
In this review, we’re going to take a look at the casino, games and game categories offered; as well as the website, payment methods, and more. So without further ado, let’s get cracking.
The casino offers a vast range of games for you to enjoy, and thanks to the inclusion of multiple software providers there are always new and unique titles to look forward to; in fact, new titles are being added every single month.
Both casino games and video slots are available in abundance, so whether you fancy one of the latest Blueprint Gaming slots like Ted, Genie Jackpots, or Top Cat; or you want a low variance gaming experience with one of NetEntertainment’s titles, there is always a slot to satisfy your needs.
Over 40 casino table games can be found at Coral Casino, and they range from the popular titles such as European Roulette, European Blackjack and Single Deck Blackjack; to more obscure games like Red Dog Poker, Oasis Poker, Casino Hold’ Em, French Roulette, and more.
Plus, thanks to all the games being delivered through an instant play format, there’s nothing to download or to activate within your browser; simply click on the game that you want to play and it will load in your open window.
Coral Casino features progressive jackpot games that offer an unparalleled number of ways to win life changing sums of money.
What is a progressive jackpot? Progressive jackpots offer players the chance to win anywhere from a few thousand pounds right up to millions, and all from playing the video slot games as normal. Each time you spin, a tiny fraction of your stake is ‘donated’ to the jackpot total, and the lucky player who manages to scoop the jackpot (by landing jackpot symbols or triggering it in whichever way it has been designed) walks away with the money.
On most games, you’ll find that all players qualify for the progressive jackpot regardless of the stake wagered, although some games do incentivise players to stake higher sums by offering increased chances of winning.
Coral offer over 40 jackpot games for you to choose from, and whether it’s one of the smaller games featuring a jackpot of a few grand, or a game like Jackpot Giant which currently has a jackpot of a whopping £4 Million, you’ll find a ton games to choose between.
Coral offer access to a number of different Live Dealer Games, and whether you’re looking to chat away with other players in a social game of Blackjack, or you fancy an intense, high-stakes session on the Roulette, you won’t be disappointed with the choice here.
All the games render in HD, and streaming looks fantastic on almost all devices. This is dependent on a strong internet connection of course, so it’s worth ensuring you’re using a strong WIFI or 4G connection for the best results.
Some of the more popular games (Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat) offer multiple table limits as well, so you can play from as little as £1 or stake up to £5,000 if you have that kind of cash to throw around.
To access the Live Dealer Casino, simply click ‘Live Casino’ from the main navigation menu, or if you’re on the main casino game overview page, click ‘Live Games’ from the navigation bar on the left.
Coral Casino is committed to creating the ultimate user experience, which essentially translates to providing a safe and transparent online gaming environment offering all players peace of mind.
Security wise, Coral utilise state of the art 256-bit digital encryption both on financial transactions, and when storing personal details. This military grade security ensures that all your details remain as secure as can be.
The website itself isn’t the most current or up to date in terms of design, but it gets the job done; and Coral clearly take the view that performance matters more than aesthetics – something we tend to agree with.
One of the only real nags we have with the site, is that Coral are yet to get rid of the necessity for separate wallets for different sections of the site. This means that you need to manually transfer funds between your poker and casino accounts, for example, before being able to use that money on the game you are trying to play.
While this is a bit labour intensive, it isn’t a huge issue when you consider everything else the site has to offer, and it’s more than made up for by the speeds the site runs at. All in all, this is industry leading stuff.
When it comes to mobile betting, Coral players are spoilt for choice with the range of different apps available to players using iOS and Android devices.
iOS players can download the free Coral Casino app from the Apple AppStore; and Android players can also enjoy the free download, although the APK file must be downloaded directly from Coral’s website due to Google no longer allowing gambling apps within the PlayStore.
Users without an iOS or Android device can also take advantage of mobile gaming by heading to the Coral website as normal from their internet browser. The site will automatically re-direct you to the mobile version of the casino, at which point you can log in or create an account.
Coral’s loyalty program is developed using comp points. These are essentially loyalty points, and as soon as you register at the casino, you’ll automatically be enrolled in the scheme.
As you stake money and play the games, you’ll earn and accumulate comp points, which can later be redeemed for a number of gifts including: casino credit, free spins, re-load bonuses, and even gadgets and holidays if you manage to save enough.
Coral regularly run promotions where players can earn extra comp points, so it’s always worth keeping an eye on the promotions tab to see what’s going on from week to week.
Payments & Limits
Coral offer some of the most un-restrictive betting limits and withdrawal caps around, and while you’ll likely need to pass the KYC (Know Your Customer) ID check before being able to make a withdrawal for the first time, withdrawals are generally processed in under 24 hours.
With a huge range of payment methods available (including PayPal, Paysafecard, Neteller, Skrill, and most Credit/Debit cards), you are unlikely to struggle in this department – although if you really can’t find a suitable payment method you can always request an old fashioned cheque deposit.
If you’re ever unsure on the specific limits or restrictions that apply to your account, it’s always best to contact Coral directly for clarification.
History & About
Coral is one of the world’s most successful bookmakers, and one of the UK’s oldest and most respected companies at that.
Founded by Joe Coral in 1926, the company was initially only a familiar sight on greyhound tracks around the country; it wasn’t until over 30 years later that the bookmaker began to see any real growth, when in 1961 Joe Coral teamed up with long time friend Tom Bradbury-Pratt, and the first high street shop was opened.
Business continued to boom over the coming years, and a 1981 deal saw Coral taken over by Base, who carried on the successful running of the company until the 1997 acquisition by Ladbrokes, which was the beginning of a choppy few years for the bookie. Things finally settled down in the early 2000’s, and Coral launched their online casino a few years later.
Today, the bookmaker operates a number of products, including their signature bookmaking, the Online Casino, Poker Room, Bingo Games, and Live Dealer Games.
