*Please note – Magic Red no longer accepts UK customers*
Magic Red Casino is a relatively new gaming website but one which has become popular very quickly. We’ve been playing here for some time after several recommendations and can confirm that it’s a top notch place to play online slots – hundreds of games, some great bonuses for new and existing players and a simple user interface all contribute to a quality website.
Games and Software
If you’re a fan of Playtech software then you won’t find a better venue than Magic Red Casino – every game here is from that particular developer and that means you’ll have access to not only dozens of five reel online slots but also video poker, live casino games, arcade games, scratchcards and table games.
Of course what you also get with Playtech is a great variety of progressive jackpot games including their range of Marvel slots; millions of pounds are regularly won by players spinning the reels on games such as Elektra, X-Men and The Incredible Hulk.
If you’re looking for generous bonuses then Magic Red is certainly one of the better options. There are three levels of rewards for new players depending on whether you’re a low roller, mid-roller or high roller but there’s £1000 available for free for the biggest depositors.
During the first month of your membership you can also take advantage of a 25% bonus on your first four deposits so three’s a definite incentive to stay and play here.
Referring a friend can earn you another £50 in your account and you can also get a 10-15% bonus by depositing using Magic Red’s preferred payment methods. For example, using Mastercard will earn you an extra 10% of your deposit.
There’s also a VIP scheme called Magicvip in which you are automatically enrolled when you sign up – comp points are earned for every bet you make and as your VIP level increases through Silver, Gold, Platinum and Black, rewards will also improve. High rollers and regular players will benefit the most.
Magic Red is one of the better Playtech casinos out there; there’s no downloading of extra software involved and all games are accessible from the home screen. Whatever you want to play you can navigate there easily from the tabs at the top of the screen – we head straight for the slots.
As you would expect there is also a mobile app which can be accessed by visiting the site from your mobile device. There’s a wide selection of games there so you can get your slots fix on the move.
Depositing money here is easy and there are loads of methods available ranging from credit and debit cards to eWallets such as Neteller and Skrill. Bank transfers are also available and don’t forget that picking the right deposit method can earn you an extra 10-15% bonus on that amount. Withdrawals are pretty fast – a maximum of three business days for standard members but as little as one day for VIPs.
Customer Support and Security
We’ve always been impressed with the speed of customer service here, although we have rarely had any reason to use them. Support is accessed by clicking the green ‘Help’ tab on the right of the screen and there you will find a range of contact options including the important Live Chat plus various international phone numbers, an email address and a postal address. Support is 24/7.
As with all good online casinos, security is a priority at Magic Red and you can rest assured knowing that your deposits, your gameplay and your withdrawals are in safe hands. It’s registered with the Financial Services Regulatory Commission of Antigua & Barbuda.
Like all online casinos, Magic Red asks players to meet certain wagering requirements when using their bonuses. In this case the base amount for calculation is the bonus plus deposit so depending on the amount you’ve deposited, the requirement varies from 8x to 22x.
For example if you make the minimum 1st deposit of £20 you will receive a 25% bonus (£5). That totals £25 so with a wagering requirement of 8x you must bet a total of £200 before you can cash out.

“This was a brand new casino when I joined and I guess I was one of the first customers. I joined to take advantage of the massive welcome bonus but the live dealers and the Marvel slots tempted me to stay. There’s plenty more slots and regular promotions to keep me busy for a while yet.” – Simon F, Perth
