About Zodiacu Casino (Review)
Some time back I had written an article and hinted that Zodiacu Casino’s bonus system can make you win €1200, “…if and only if you will play by the rules” of their games. This I did after I had played a game with the folks and felt a little “tricked”. Being new to the platform back then, I had felt like their bonus system was crooked or rather twisted in a way to woo beginners and also to keep them glued to the “conning” game even after losing their first con-game.
Of course, if you check the internet reviews, I am certain that you too are likely to meet a good class of disappointed players (perhaps one or two) on this very issue. The “Zodiac” very much seems to conceal what it ought to expose to “travelers” at first sight. Could there be “something” hidden in the bonus system from the stars that one might need to have a sharper telescope to observe? Aha! In my opinion, there is.
And that is the reason why in this edition, I ventured to bring out very important notes that one ought to pay careful attention whenever visiting the oracle. I will try to be keen and precise on what really happens with the Zodiacu bonus system and answer a few burning worries about this platform. With that, allow me to begin with the obvious…
First, what is that “Gain Star Dust” all about?
Well, Zodiacu Casino tries to create a context of a mystical-kind of a platform that tries to simulate an imaginary world where the player feels like “a traveler” on the stars and their online computer assistant as the “oracle” to help you through your walk. Now, if the designer has managed to convince you that you are in a different world, why not make you feel like you are using a different kind of currency among the stars? That’s what the Star Dust is for. It is some sort of fake Zodiacu-world bonus currency that you get rewarded once you complete a challenge, win a tournament or advance a level.
You can use this fake currency branded Gain Star Dust to purchase a couple of things like free spins or you can even transform it into real money. It is there mainly to motivate you.
The Main Bonuses: €1200 and 300 free spins!
Sign up & 1st Deposit bonus – 150% with a maximum bonus of €50. The earliest gift from the stars is a bonus of 150% of all deposits that attracts a maximum bonus of up to €50 and a mandatory staking requirement of 30X on slots. Plus, there are 30 free spins per day for 10 days from now on. Wow, that's 300 free spins in total to play with, dizzy, isn't it?
2nd & 3rd deposit bonuses – 50% bonus with a maximum bonus of €250. On the second and the third deposits, the oracle rewards you with a 50% bonus on the deposit and attracts a maximum of €250. The second and third deposits also have a mandatory wagering of 30X on slots.
4th deposit bonus – 25% bonus and a maximum of €300. On the fourth deposit, you are rewarded with a 25% bonus on deposits and a maximum bonus of €300. This still attracts a mandatory 30X staking on slots.
5th deposit bonus – 25% bonus and a maximum of €350. The fifth deposit is rewarded much like the fourth deposit. The only difference is that the maximum deposit in the 5th deposit is €50 more than the fourth deposit.
Now, there seem to be “something” about the Zodiacu Casino’s bonus system that has constantly made most newbies to the system to get worried whenever they are set to engage their first games in the platform. I know after going through my guide you are probably thinking like, “…man! There is no rocket science there. What were you meaning by ‘something’ hidden in the stars?”
Well, all this could have been fine if it was that simple; but …
- Poker & Video Poker games, Casino War, Roulette & American Roulette, Classic Blackjack & Other Blackjack, Craps, and Baccarat do not count in the required 30X staking in all the aforementioned deposits.
- Slot games like the Forsaken Kingdom, Jekyll and Hyde, Tomb Rider 2, Big Bang, Castle Builder, Scrooge, The Wish Master, and the Blood Suckers attract a bonus of 1% on wagering.
- Before accomplishing the required 30X wagering requirement, the maximum amount of bet allowed for the bonus money is always €5 per spin.
- Players from Poland do not get to be rewarded the normal match bonuses on deposits. However, they can be rewarded special match bonuses upon requesting from the Zodiacu support in the live chat or the email
Here is my take…
Any true casino gambler knows that information about the simplest of the rules is a white-card strategy of the game. Having gone through the bonus system and tried it a couple of times, I was of the view that:
First, the bonus system does not very well favor a newcomer (leave alone the flashing red labeled 150% bonus on the first deposit). There are other online casinos that can offer even 200 to 300 percent bonus just to get a newcomer on their platform and get you to make a deposit then they disclose several obstacles that will make your experience in the entire system ruined. But though the bonus for a newcomer is way too low for a visitor, I love the fact that if you are keen enough on the platform Zodiacu lays all rules on the table before gaming and makes you aware of outcomes before you turn the wheel.
Moving on, I found Zodiacu to be a good system once you get through the second deposit. It has a strange way of rewarding and keeping you motivated through the games. My only worry is that it has a very limited number of games to engage. I mean it. It does not seem to offer enough games to beginners as one could prospect from their welcoming screen. Otherwise, Zodiaku was off the chaaaa….arts!!!
