Review: One of the Best Bets for the Prolific Punter

Review: One of the Best Bets for the Prolific Punter

So who on earth is Tony? It's none other than Antanas "Tony G" Guoga, famous for his pro poker career (and as a member of the European Parliament). TonyBet is part of the self-made millionaire's business portfolio, which includes TonyResort and the online clothing store TonyStreets.

The site has been online since 2009 offering a tempting assortment of casino games along with poker and sports betting. The site has proven to be a mainstay in the UK online casino market thanks to a fun and easy-to-use player interface, as well as a unique assortment of games.

While you might think poker would be the main focus given Tony G's history, the online casino gets equal time and is worth exploring on its own. It's an especially great site for those who would like to quickly move between casino games, sports betting and/or poker as the site does all three very well.

Things we especially like at TonyBet include:

  • An appealing mix of casino and live dealer games.

  • A fun lineup of regular promotions.

  • Easy swapping between casino games and in-play sports betting no matter what device you use.

Getting Underway at TonyBet Casino

TonyBet is a bit unusual in that they don't have one particular ongoing welcome bonus for their casino games. Instead they have a series of temporary bonuses that change over time.

At certain points, they may only have bonuses that apply to sports betting or to poker. For example, they have been known to offer extra spins at a particular slot for a relatively small initial deposit or a matching bonus for your first run of sports bets. You'll have to check out the site to see what's currently on offer!

At the moment, the site has a special welcome package offer for those interested in casino games. You can pick up 130 extra spins in total, along with a 200% matching bonus on your first deposit. The details are as follows:

Type Amount Match Playthrough
Signup Bonus 20 extra spins (+10 for mobile app signup) N/A 35x
First Deposit Match Up to £400 + 100 spins 200% 35x

This welcome bonus is split up into several parts, so we'll go through them all step by step for you. When you create a new account, you'll be able to get 20 extra spins with no strings attached (other than meeting the wagering requirement to withdraw any winnings). If you download and run the mobile app, you can get an additional 10 extra spins that way. Your first deposit (of at least £10) will also be matched 200% and you'll gain an additional 100 extra spins at the eligible slot games.

Keep in mind that since you have only one account for all aspects of the site (the casino, sportsbook and poker), opting in to one bonus offer will likely prevent you from taking any others in the future. For example, if you take a sports betting offer you most likely won't be able to also take a casino game welcome offer.

Promotions to Enjoy at TonyBet

TonyBet has some fun ongoing promotions for players who prefer their casino games.

Tuesdays and Thursdays bring some bonus spins. You'll get 50 spins at one particular game the site is currently featuring (this usually changes from day to day). Of course, there is a wagering requirement to unlock any winnings, but this bonus is available to all players on these days. The Tuesday offer simply requires that you have made a deposit and played (in any amount) the previous week, and the Thursday offer is for players who ended up taking a net loss the previous week. There is also a 30 extra spin bonus each weekend for players who wagered at least £100 of real money the previous week.

Each Friday you can also take advantage of a special reload bonus if you deposited at least £100 during the previous week.

The Games You Can Play at TonyBet

TonyBet offers players over 300 games to choose from. Slots, video poker, table games and scratchers are all on the menu. In addition, there is a live casino with dealers that a do a great job of giving you the sensation of being at a real table.

Slots - Most of the slots at TonyBet are popular NetEnt and Nyx titles, but there is also a sampling from other developers. Some of these are not often seen at other UK online casinos. We enjoyed the bright island vacation theme of Wai-Kiki from Iron Dog Studios, and the 96.07% RTP of their Blood Queen slot provided for some rewarding gaming sessions.

Live Casino - TonyBet's live casino offers you a variety of baccarat, blackjack and roulette tables to choose from. One interesting bit here is the "starters" section, which is a collection of low-limit tables (as low as £1 per wager) perfect for those who are new to the games or to live dealer play. If you're an experienced high roller looking for the hottest action in the house, you can head straight to the VIP tables where stakes run from £50 to £5,000 per bet.

Table Games - In addition to the tables at the live casino, TonyBet has more standard versions of all the casino classics that you can play at your leisure. The roulette selection is nice, with the European and French versions of the game that are much more favourable to players. You'll also find virtual blackjack, baccarat and craps here. And in addition to a selection of video poker games, TonyBet includes some very interesting single-player poker variants like Poker Pursuit.

The Software Powering TonyBet

TonyBet relies on two of the industry's biggest names for most of their games - NetEnt and Nyx Interactive. But they also have some titles from smaller publishers to spice things up. The full list is as follows:

TonyBet offers excellent Android and iOS apps if you're playing on a mobile device. The entire lineup can be played through a web browser, however, so TonyBet should run smoothly across a wide range of devices.

Depositing Funds With TonyBet

TonyBet supports a wide range of deposit methods, and there are no fees for using any of them.

Deposit method Fee Processing time Minimum Deposit
Visa Free Instant £10
Mastercard Free Instant £10
Skrill Free Instant £10
PaySafecard Free Instant £10
Neteller Free Instant £10
PayPal Free Instant £10
Bitcoin Free Instant £10

Withdrawing Winnings From TonyBet

Withdrawal Method Fee Processing time Minimum Withdrawal
Visa Free 1-5 days £10
Mastercard Free 1-5 days £10
Skrill Free 24 hours £10
PaySafecard Free 24 hours £10
Neteller Free 24 hours £10

Rewards for Loyal Players at TonyBet

TonyBet's loyalty program, the Lights Out Club, seems to have been retired. However, we notice the company has since shifted focus to personalised offers. As you build up a history of play at the casino, you'll get direct offers tailored to your preferences.

Poker fans should definitely take a look at the rakeback program here. In addition to a very favourable percentage, there is also a monthly leaderboard program that pays out hundreds of pounds in bonus money to the top finisher!

The TonyBet Competitive Advantage

All-in-one approaches in the casino world don't always work out. There is good reason for other properties separating their casino, poker and sports betting operations. TonyBet is perhaps the most successful site at bringing them all together smoothly and seamlessly (even on the mobile apps), and offering lots of interesting and valuable promotions for each.

Customer Service at TonyBet Casino

TonyBet has a phone number and email address that are staffed from 07:00 to 03:00 UTC every day, and there is also a web contact form for less urgent inquiries. We've always found their responses to be quick, courteous and helpful.

  • A reliable and established place to play.

  • All games are "instant play".

  • Well-designed iOS and Android apps.

  • Does not have 24 hour customer support.
