Casino Cruise sister sites 2023

Casino Lab logo

We’ve seen casinos with mad scientist themes before, but none of them look as good as Casino Lab. All of the Casino Cruise sister sites are graphical triumphs (and we include Casino Cruise itself in that), but Casino Lab takes the stereotypical mad professor idea and blends it with steampunk to create something that makes an instant and lasting impression. The casino isn’t quite as exciting as its promotional text makes it sound, as you can’t literally make potions and apply them to the casino games to get free chips, but Casino Lab still offers a colossal progressive jackpot pool worth (on average) more than £20m and a catalogue of around 1300 casino games, so there’s just as much reason to give the site a visit as there is to visit any of the other Genesis Global sites. The games at Casino Lab are broadly the same as they are at all the Casino Cruise sister sites, so choosing between the sites is really down to your preference of themes.

Spela logo

Genesis Global Limited is happy to serve customers in the UK with casino sites, but the UK isn’t the limit of its interests or its ambitions. There are several Casino Cruise sister sites that aren’t even available to players in the UK, and then there are sites like Spela, which stand on the borderline. With a name like Spela, which is Swedish for “play,” it’s obviously not specifically targeted at British players. It’s still an option for them, though, and those who investigate this moody-looking casino with its “city at night” backdrop will find that it’s been stuffed full of two thousand slots and games and offers instant withdrawals if you win anything from them. Not all of the casinos on the Genesis Global platform offer as many as two thousand slots, which suggests that those that do are special in the eyes of the operator. As such, we’re happy to call Spela a special casino.

Casino Gods logo

Most of us have at least a passing knowledge of the heroes, legends and gods of ancient Greece and ancient Rome. Because of that, you should recognise some of the “gods” who appear on the Casino Gods website even though they’re masquerading under different names. The bearded figure on the homepage, spinning a coin at you invitingly, is definitely Zeus. Some of the others are harder to identify – especially as Genesis Global Limited has made some of them up, like “Guardiana,” the god of safety, and “Fortuna,” the god of games. Nobody can accuse this member of the Casino Cruise sister sites family of lacking ambition when it comes to its theme, but it does make navigating the site a slightly challenging experience at times. As for the site’s promise that the casino’s “ancient rulers” will “watch our journey from above,” – it’s more creepy than it is reassuring, which we doubt was the intention.

Genesis Casino logo

It’s very obvious from the name of Genesis Casino that it’s the flagship casino brand of Genesis Global Limited. The casino operator wouldn’t have put its name to the site if it didn’t see it that way. However, Genesis Casino is more than a little different from the flagship casinos of most casino operators. In nine out of ten cases, the flagship brand is also the oldest. That’s not the case with Genesis Casino, which wasn’t launched until 2018, four years after Genesis Global Limited was founded. The company took its time, gaining experience by making some of the other Casino Cruise sister sites first before making something it thinks is worthy of the name. The result is an attractive, modern-looking casino with an outer-space theme – but one that curiously decides to go with the smaller package of 1300 games rather than the 2000 we know that the operator could include if it wanted to.

Casino Joy logo

While Genesis Casino is the flagship casino of the Genesis Global Limited brand, and its status cannot be denied, it’s not the most popular casino on the platform. That honour goes to Casino Joy, which will be a familiar name to anyone who’s been around the UK online slots and casino scene for the past few years. Knowing that Casino Joy is popular is one thing, but understanding why it’s popular is quite another. Of all the Casino Cruise sister sites, Casino Joy is the one with the weakest theme. Aside from being bright and colourful, it’s hard to say that it has much in the way of a theme at all. It also has the same (comparatively) limited platform of 1300 games that you’ll find at almost all of the other Genesis Global casino sites. That’s a little ironic for a casino that claims to offer us a new way of playing casino games but does nothing of the sort.

Casoola logo

If you’ve ever wondered what it might look like if Matt Groening decided to make a casino based on “Futurama” and design all of the graphics for the casino himself – which would be quite a strange thing to wonder about, now we think about it – Casoola is your answer. It’s very obviously inspired by “Futurama” – so much so that we can’t help but wonder how close some of the cartoon robot characters get to copyright infringement on some of the characters from the show. None of the Casino Cruise sister sites has quite as much fun with their themes as Casoola does. It claims to have been born out of a “VR experiment” that went wrong and resulted in the creation of a ten-meter-tall robot that went haywire. All of that is, of course, nonsense, but what’s not nonsense is that Casoola contains the full allocation of two thousand casino games available on this network and so has to be considered one of the best casinos on it.

Pelaa logo

Earlier on, when we were discussing the merits of Spela as a member of the Casino Cruise sister sites family, we said that Spela is the Swedish word for “play.” Now we’re looking at Pelaa, which is named for the Finnish word for “plays.” We’re not saying that Genesis Global Limited cares more about the Scandinavian iGaming market than it does about the UK iGaming market, but we are saying that the company’s best casinos seem more geared towards that market than the domestic one. We say “best casinos” because Pelaa, which has a vaguely Viking theme, offers the aforementioned full complement of two thousand casino games that only exist at the top sites on the network. Don’t feel too put out as a UK-based player, though – some of the promotions at Pelaa are exclusive to the UK, so you get special treatment even if you do have to use Google Translate to find out what the casino’s name means.

Casino Cruise operator – Genesis Global Limited

genesis casinos logo

Genesis Global Limited is such a familiar name to players in the UK that you could easily believe that it’s been around for twenty years or more. In reality, the company is yet to celebrate its tenth birthday. The first Genesis Global Casino – which happens to be Casino Cruise – launched in 2014. The network has expanded rapidly since then, with more than twenty Genesis Global casinos in operation today. If you’re wondering why there are fewer than twenty casinos on this page, it’s because not all of the sites on the platform are available in the UK. We at focus on the UK iGaming market. Shortly after establishing itself in Malta, Genesis Global made the logical first step of acquiring a licence from the Malta Gaming Authority, which served as a good platform for acquiring a UK Gambling Commission licence. The first three casinos the company opened were Casino Cruise, then Spinit, then Sloty. That’s why Genesis says that it started life on a cruise ship before returning to simple spinning and finally taking to the sky.

Genesis Global has been an award winner in the past – it picked up the “Pay and Play Operator of the Year” award from the eGaming Review Nordic Awards in 2019 – but it’s surprising that a casino operator of such repute hasn’t earned more plaudits than it has. The only sour note in the history of the operator – save for the UKGC fine – is the failed attempt to break into sports betting by launching FunBet in 2020. The site was a flop, lasting less than two years before closing down.

Casino Cruise Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses

All aboard for the Casino Cruise welcome offer, which is worth £100 as a matched first deposit and comes with fifty bonus spins. The minimum qualifying deposit for the bonus is £10, and the funds (and free spins winnings) come with an x40 wagering requirement. Max bonus winnings are fixed at £2000. Deposits made using e-wallets don’t trigger the bonus.

Other Promotions

The theme at Casino Cruise will have you believing you deserve first-class treatment, and the casino’s additional promotions are how it attempts to provide it. Players get additional deposit bonuses (value unspecified) at the start of each month, a further 25% matched deposit (maximum value £50) every Monday that comes with ten free spins, a “pool party” every Tuesday with additional boosted deposits (value unspecified again), and “weekend freebies” which are actually delivered on Thursdays to all players who’ve made a deposit during the previous seven days. Once again, the value is unspecified. We know that people in first class tend not to worry about price tags, but some more information about the value of these bonuses would be helpful.

Top Games at Casino Cruise

Games at Casino Cruise are grouped and categorised in several ways on the homepage. The casino makes recommendations to you if you’re not sure where to start, but the easiest way to see the site’s top games is by clicking the “popular” tab. This tells you what your fellow players are playing and enjoying at Casino Cruise at the moment. One of those games is Crazy TIme, which will come as a surprise to anyone who expected the top games section of the site to be full of wall-to-wall slots. Crazy Time is a live game show with a real dealer and is provided by Evolution. Thinks of it as an amped-up version of Wheel of Fortune, and you won’t go far wrong. The fishing theme is obviously popular with players at Casino Cruise (which makes sense when you consider the nautical connection), as both Big Bass Bonanza and Bigger Bass Bonanza by Reel Kingdom are among the top games, too. Every time you land a fisherman symbol and a money fish on those slots, you’ll win money. The classic Book of Dead slot from Play’n Go is also listed, as is its sequel (and near clone) Legacy of Dead. Landing expanding symbols during free spins is the key to success in those Egyptian-themed slots.

Licensing and Customer Support

UK Gambling Commission licence 45235, which belongs to Genesis Global Limited, covers all gaming activities at Casino Cruise. Sadly, it isn’t a clean licence. Genesis Global was hit with a £3.7m fine in December 2021 because the UKGC found issues with the customer’s anti-money laundering processes and customer identification checks. A formal warning was issued along with the fine. If you want to speak to customer support at Casino Cruise, call 08001700881 or use the email or live chat facilities offered on the site.

Withdrawal Speed and Support

Payment processing at Casino Cruise is a dream. You can get instant withdrawals from the casino by using any major e-wallet (Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, NeoSurf and plenty more) or by using the instant bank transfer service that Trustly provides. If you don’t have an e-wallet and you don’t mind waiting, withdrawals made to debit cards should be processed and paid out within three days. The same is true of Apple Pay transactions if you have the facility.

Final Thoughts on Casino Cruise

Any casino that can offer players instant withdrawals is bound to be popular. A casino with instant withdrawals and more than two thousand games to offer will be even more popular. Taking those facts into consideration, the popularity of Casino Cruise shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody. That being said, it could and should be more transparent about the promotions that it offers beyond the welcome bonus.
