Ay Caramba! It’s Dave here with another online casino review for you. Now they say you’re either a dog person or a cat person, don’t they? Personally I’m more of a dog person (in fact my black labrador Daisy is lying on my feet as I write this – aww!) but I might be tempted the other way by the character who runs this casino. Although Jefe is a cat, he appears to be a Mexican wrestling cat, complete with face mask and wrestling suit. This is surprising, but in the world of online casino’s not too surprising…
CasinoJefe is run by LuckyDino Gaming Ltd in Malta, and it holds licenses from the Maltese authorities and those in Curacao, as well as a UK Gambling Commission licence, so it’s got a good reputation behind it, and it’s been online since the end of 2015, so it’s one of the younger players on the market.
What makes the site stand out, though, isn’t it’s grappling cat, but it’s the rewards they offer regular players. Just by playing your favourite games (as opposed to ones they tell you to play) you can be awarded “Jefe Bounties” and you have a progression up through various levels which reveal more benefits and rewards each time. What’s really interesting is that they’ve tied this into a traditional VIP concept as well, so that once you hit level 4 you get dedicated customer care. In fact they guarantee you’ll be responded to within 15 minutes – and they actually back it up by saying if they don’t you’ll be given €10! Now that’s an impressive “money where your mouth is” approach to customer service which some longer established casino brands could take a good note of!
So, customer service and Mexican wrestling cats aside, I’m assuming you want to know what the games are like, and what they are tempting us with to sign up?
CasinoJefe Free Spin No Deposit Bonus
As befits the friendly fighting cat’s welcome, CasinoJefe will give you free spins just for registering. Sign up via my link and they’ll give you 11 free spins on the appropriately Mexican themed Spinata Grande slot. Vamanos!
If that wets your appetite enough to deposit then I’ve got a three step bonus deal for you:
1st: deposit: 100% bonus up to €100 free;
2nd deposit: 50% bonus up to €100 free;
3rd deposit: 75% bonus up to €75 free.
Ok, so the total amount of bonus isn’t the biggest in the business, but I like the fact it’s over 3 deposits and that each bonus % is high – this is a good offer for those who aren’t high rollers. The site’s minimum deposit amount is €25 which makes it a great place for casual or beginner gamers, too. But what can you spend all that bonus money on?
CasinoJefe Slot Machines
Like the other LuckyDino Gaming sites, CasinoJefe doesn’t go for big numbers, it goes for high quality and you’ll find a really good selection of the latest video slots here. All of them are standout games with excellent graphics and sound tracks from the best in the business like NetEnt, Williams and Microgaming. You’ll also find some of the latest new releases, like the latest in the Fairytale Legends series, and so on. Strangely I couldn’t find too many slots with cats in them, though…
There are also Progressive Jackpot games available like Mega Fortune and Cosmic Fortune, although there aren’t too many and you can’t filter them out just to find them, so you’ll need to browse round the games. All in all though, I couldn’t find a dud amongst them. Sadly for fans of classic slots there are none to be found here. Jefe is obviously a fan of all the cool new stuff!
CasinoJefe Casino Games
Unlike some of the other LuckyDino Gaming sites, Jefe here is obviously more of a fan of casino table games, as there are quite a few to choose from. Clicking on their category produces 33 different table games featuring all the favourites and some interesting rare games. As well as roulette, blackjack, baccarat and casino hold ‘em there are also games like Punto Banco, Red Dog and some stud poker variants as well. So a solid range of things to keep table gamers interested for a fair while.
If you’re a fan of live dealer games then you’re out of luck. I guess Jefe doesn’t want any humans stealing the show from him because he hasn’t let any of them get a look in on the site.
CasinoJefe Casino Review Summary
I like this site quite a lot. Perhaps I am becoming more of a cat person? At least if they are a Mexican wrestling cat… The site’s got a nice bold look but it’s not over the top and it doesn’t distract when you want to concentrate on your gaming. Everything loads quickly and it’s a very quick and clean site to get around.
I like the fact that they reward new depositors but also ongoing players, and also I like the way they’ve implemented the current trend of giving players progress to achieve or levels to hit rather than a traditional “invitation only” VIP club for regular players. I’m very impressed that for level 4 and above they are prepared to lay on the line that if your support query isn’t answered in 15 minutes they’ll give you €10 in cash to say “sorry for the delay” – this marks out CasinoJefe.com as a site that takes its regulars seriously and wants to prove it wil look after them well. A lesson all casinos could take from this fighting feline. Ole!
