Casino Bellini Support & Security Review:
Casino Bellini are a casino you can trust. They take the security of their players very seriously and their games are all certified to be fair and accurate. As for your financial transactions, they’re done on secure encrypted servers, so there’s no need to worry there.
Support-wise, Casino Bellini are pretty good. They have customer service staff available 24/7. They have a toll-free phone number for Canadian players and UK players, as well as toll-free fax numbers. They also have international numbers for all other players. The phone lines have been tested and the response was very good. They were polite, courteous and, above all, extremely helpful when pushed for help.
Casino Bellini has a live chat feature, which we checked out and were generally happy with. No frills, but it was reasonably swift and the staff seemed knowledgeable, which is always good to find.
Casino Bellini also have various e-mail addresses for you to get in touch and they’re divided up between support, VIP, feedback and marketing. Again, when tested, the e-mail response was of a good standard. While not immediate, they still made good time on the queries and answered them well.
There is also a postal address for anyone that wants to get in touch that way.
The problem is the lack of a really detailed knowledge bank. While there is enough information on the casino’s website, it still seems to be lacking and it isn’t the easiest to find what you’re looking for

Casino Bellini Bonus Review:
With your first deposit at Casino Bellini, if you deposit €97 or more and you’ll receive a bonus of €103 (or whatever currency you choose to use). If you deposit €3,000 or more, your welcome bonus will be €1,000. Any deposit below €97 is matched 100%
Also, if you choose to deposit in various ways, such as MoneyBookers, or Neteller, you’ll receive another bonus. The information on all those deposit bonuses are mentioned in the deposit/withdrawal section.
Casino Bellini has a minimum 20x playthrough for all bonuses, so you have to wager at least 20x your initial deposit and bonus to be eligible. Once you have done that, you can cash out.
Casino Bellini also offers various monthly reload bonuses.
All bonuses are play bonuses (used for wagering purposes only) and cannot be redeemed for cash.
Review Score: 3/5
Casino Bellini Software Review:
Casino Bellini uses Playtech’s software as the core of its casino and, in the main, it shows. The heart of the casino is very smooth, very impressive once you’re playing the game, but everything around it seems to let Casino Bellini down.
For a start, the interface in the lobby is very, very clunky. You make one wrong move and you’re into an entirely different menu, perusing the slot machines instead of the table games, which can be so infuriating. However, if you’re careful, the menus are set out clear enough, although it’s a bit frustrating that you have to enter a game before finding out what it is, which means that if you’re new to the casino and don’t know what Roller Coaster Dice is, for example, you might never play it, or might waste time opening it up.
You will need the latest Flash update to play some of the games, which is another problem with the software, especially if you’re using an older computer. It also also a bit of a memory hog and the fact there’s no browser-based option, or even a Mac option is very disappointing.
The one redeeming feature is the look of Casino Bellini. There’s no denying that it’s a casino with a modern, almost minimalist feel, which does set it aside from many of its competitors. However, missing features such as a Mac client, or at the very least a browser-based casino means it’s trailing behind most of its rivals.

Casino Bellini Games Review:
This is here Casino Bellini excels. The choice of games on offer at Casino Bellini is exceptional. While they may not be the slickest looking games around, the choice is unbelievable. There are dozens and dozens of slots, from one-line slots right up to a 50-line slot. At the time of writing, there are 9 slot machines with a progressive jackpot, while Playtech’s Dollar Ball feature also adds a bit of excitement to these games, giving the player the chance to win a huge jackpot for only $1 time.
But it’s not only slots where Casino Bellini excels, the choice of table games is unbelievable. There are all the traditional favorites such as Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and various poker-based games, but there are also many twists on them, including the brilliant Tequila Poker. There are also the less traditional games that are creeping their way in to almost every online casino, such as Pai Gow and Sic Bo.
There are also far too many variations of video poker to list here, but needless to say, there are more than enough to keep you occupied, as well as two with progressive jackpots.
And what about live dealer games? Oh, Casino Bellini certainly has them. All the traditional live dealer games are there, with Blackjack and Baccarat the two big hitters for Casino Bellini. But they also have live roulette and live casino hold ’em. Simply amazing compared to the majority of their competitors.
Then there are the arcade games. Darts, Hi-Lo, variations on Hi-Lo with dice, to be honest, the list of arcade games is far too long, but there really is something for everyone twice over. It’s a great facet of Casino Bellini and you’ll always find a new game to play.
Lastly, Casino Bellini is one of the few homes on the internet to a Pachinko machine. If you’ve never played it before, it’s a good reason to sign up at Casino Bellini, as there’s nothing even remotely like it out there.
The amount of games to bet on at Casino Bellini has to be seen to be believed.
Review Score: 5/5
Casino Bellini Promotions Review:
Oh, Casino Bellini, what are you thinking? For a casino that wants to promote a luxury image, the lack of a great VIP program is shocking. Casino Bellini simply operates the standard comp points program for players, where $10 earns you 1 comp point. The higher up the levels you get, Casino Bellini will offer you some more treats, such as faster withdrawal times, more flexibility over your account, but it all seems to be a bit lacking compared to the competitors out there.
Casino Bellini currently run a promotion under the “Elite Challenge” banner, which encompasses several casinos. However, any tournament you play at Casino Bellini will only be against other players from there. They currently run slots tournaments, with a nice prize pool attached to them. You will be e-mailed when the promotions start. Simply play your slots as normal and if you’re in the top players, you win a share of a very generous prizepool.
Casino Bellini does offer a refer-a-friend program, which is always good and they rewards you well for getting your friends to sign up there.

What does Bellini mean?
A Bellini is a cocktail that originated in Italy. It is made by putting pureed peaches into a sparkling white wine. It is seen as a bit of a classy cocktail due to the use of expensive sparkling wines and it suits the image that Casino Bellini wants to put across or style and class.

At this moment in time, Casino Bellini does not run any tournaments for their players, which is a shame due to the amount of games they have on offer. Plus, live dealer games? They would be fantastic for tournaments, so they need to get on it!
If you want to see tournaments added at Casino Bellini, we think you should take advantage of their feedback e-mail address and let them know about it! So drop them a line over at Feedback@CasinoBellini.com and tell them you want to see online casino tournaments!
For first time depositors depositing over €97, there is a €103 bonus. Any deposit under €97, there is a 100% match bonus. However, there is also a “high roller” deposit bonus of €1,000 for any deposit of €3,000 or more. So, any deposit between €97 and €2,999 is eligible for a €103 bonus. On top of this, if you deposit using certain methods, such as MoneyBookers, or Neteller, you’ll be eligible for either a 10% bonus or a 15% bonus. For more information, check out the deposit and withdrawal methods.
The bonuses have a 30x wagering requirement, so you have to wager the deposit and the bonus 30 times to be eligible for withdrawal (although it is only 20x for players from Denmark, while 40x for other contries: see below for more details). This is just slightly higher than the industry standard, but still a reasonably fair watering requirement. The high roller bonus has a 50x wagering requirement (20x in certain countries: see below), while the “preferred deposit method bonus” has a 2x wagering requirement for everyone.
All wagers made at baccarat, roulette, sic bo, darts, heads or tails, video poker, blackjack surrender, blackjack switch, craps, and pontoon games will not clear any of the wagering requirements. Blackjack, blackjack live, lucky blackjack, progressive blackjack and 21 duel blackjack games only qualify for 33% of their original value towards the wagering requirement. Every other game counts for 100%, so make sure you factor this in when trying to clear your bonus. If this is abused in any way, Casino Bellini will simply close your account.
As well as sign-up bonuses, Casino Bellini offers an unlimited monthly deposit bonus, exactly the same as their sign-up bonus. So, any deposit of €97 is given an extra €103, while any deposit less than that will be eligible for a 100% match.
Unfortunately, players from Brazil are not eligible for any of the bonuses at Casino Bellini.
Bonuses at Casino Bellini are strictly bonus cash and cannot be converted into real cash and cashed out.
