A traditional Japanese lucky charm welcomes you at Maneki Casino. The beckoning cat known as Maneki-neko is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and associated with good luck and fortunes. It has since spread beyond the borders of the island nation, bringing the figurine to other Asian countries where especially the Chinese population has embraced it as a lucky charm. With their global presence, Maneki Casino is introducing the talisman into our living rooms and smartphones with a mobile-optimized gaming site that offers slots, video poker as well as table and live dealer games.
You will be playing in a regulated environment at Maneki Casino, thanks to its owner and operator N1 Interactive Ltd. obtaining a license from the MGA Malta. It ensures safe and fair gaming while adhering to strict responsible gambling rules.
Always keen to explore new gaming sites I decided to pay Maneki Casino a visit. Freshly launched in April 2019 by a group of industry veterans, they pledge 700+ of the best games from top providers, awesome promotions, rewarding loyalty club and wait for it, instant withdrawals. Now that caught my attention and got me to take a deeper look into what you can expect from this casino.
The site is mobile-optimized, in clear words, it has a simple layout with no clutter needlessly filling the screen. Registration is done in three steps whereas you can choose from seven currencies – CAD, EUR, NOK, NZD, PLN, USD, ZAR – in the first part. Once completed, you will receive an authentication message via SMS or email that will activate your account. Please note, only people aged 18 and older can register an account at Maneki Casino. Unfortunately, players from the UK or Sweden and a few other countries are not accepted.
The lucky cat will get you started with a generous welcome package that is tailored to your country of residence and usually consists of multiple bonuses, extra spins on selected slots or both. Wagering requirements with bet limits, game weighting and restrictions apply to all offers, make sure to read the Maneki Casino bonus terms and conditions.
A wide range of payment methods that include debit/credit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards, instant banking and mobile solutions can be used to fund your casino account. Once you have done that and are ready to play, there is a fine list of slots, tables games and live dealer games waiting for you. Among the providers are Amatic, Elk Studios, Pragmatic Play and Yggdrasil. The live casino tables are powered by Evolution Gaming. More game studios will be added in the future.
Should you hit that magical withdrawal button after a lucky session, then relax as Maneki Casino is processing cashouts daily and that 24/7/365. As they are fairly new we do not have confirmed processing times but e-wallet withdrawals should be completed in less than 24 hours while card and bank transfers will need up to five business days.
All players will be automatically enrolled in the Maneki VIP Club with seven levels. You will start as a Maneki kitten with a white belt and progress through to Maneki Master Samurai Cat with a black belt by wagering on the games. Each level comes with increasing benefits such as lower bonus wagering requirements, extra rewards for levelling up, personal VIP hosts and more.
Customer support is at hand via Live Chat, onsite message and email should you have any questions or issues. We have not been able to confirm whether Live Chat support is available 24/7 but will update the review as soon as possible. The site is available in English, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian and Polish languages.
Well, that concludes my tour of Maneki Casino. I was impressed with the simplicity of the site, the ease of use as well as the VIP program as all players can take part. However, the game choice could be improved by adding some other providers such as Play’n GO, NetEnt, Big Time Gaming and others. Overall, a solid start from the crew at Maneki Casino. We will monitor their progress and report back should there be any changes.
