Launched in 2002 to serve the Scandinavian markets of Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway NordicBet rapidly expanded over the next decade before attracting the attention of the Betsson Group. The site was acquired by Betsson AB in January 2013 and now offers sports betting and poker as well as virtual and live casino offerings. How does the NordicBet casino section hold up for players?
Games at NordicBet Casino
NordicBet offers players two ways to access the games available on site with a instant play, browser based software and a mobile version of the casino. The former of these two casinos is the more filled with 290 games available compared to 53 games that can be accessed on the mobile site on tablets and smartphones.
Both pieces of software are slickly designed and smooth when scrolling through the games making locating and playing the games enjoyable and very player friendly. This adds to the experience and certainly makes players want to return to, and continue to play at, the site.
The instant play casino allows players to sort games by slots, table games, video poker, jackpot games and other games as well as having an all games section. The all games filter allows players to sort all 194 games in A-Z form as well as just showing the jackpot games and there is also a search option for players that know the name of the game they're looking for.
Despite having less than 300 games on-site there is plenty of variety in the games offered with Microgaming, NetEnt and WMS all providing virtual games and the slots section of the site is the most varied of all. There are 242 slot games available with all of the top games from the three suppliers available, including Immortal Romance, Avalon II and The Dark Knight Rises from Microgaming plus Gonzo's Quest and Spinata Grande from NetEnt, but NordicBet is not part of the networked jackpots from Microgaming so the biggest paying games from this provider in Mega Moolah and The Dark Knight are missing. However, the NetEnt jackpot games are available and players can win up to €3.8m on the game Mega Fortune Dreams while Hall of Gods is also paying out a seven figure jackpot at the time of writing.
There are also 21 virtual table games with numerous versions of blackjack and roulette as well as baccarat and other casino poker games plus 17 varieties of video poker and nine other games that are comprised of keno, virtual sports and scratch cards. The live dealer casino offers live blackjack, roulette, baccarat, casino hold'em and three card poker all of which are provided by live casino experts Evolution Gaming.
The mobile version of the software offers 45 slot games, three versions of blackjack plus a roulette game under the table games tab and four versions of video poker including the popular joker poker, jacks or better and deuces wild. This provides an ample number of games for a fine mobile gaming experience.

There are also on-running ad-hoc promotions with six VIP passes to meet the rock band KISS by playing the KISS slot game as well as free spins on the Game of the Day both on-site at the time of writing.
On top of this there is a Casino Rewards program where players can earn points to boost Player Levels and be able to earn Rewards points at a higher level. For every 100 points earned players are able to claim €1 in cash.
NordicBet Casino security
While the site does not offer too much detail on-site about the security systems used, they do state that all sensitive and financial data is encrypted so it cannot be accessed by third parties between player browser's and the NordicBet servers. All games on site are tested and licensed by the software suppliers and meet the strict regulations in place by the site regulators of the Malta Gaming Authority.
NordicBet Casino support
Not only does the NordicBet site have the standard support options of live chat, telephone and email - with estimated reply times of 30 seconds, 0-2 minutes and 30-60 minutes respectively - players are able to access a thorough and filled FAQ area of the site. This is separated into each section of the site as well as holding sections on Payments, Verification, Rewards and General queries so players will be able to have the majority of their queries answered without having to contact the support team. Should the support team need to be contacted they are available 24/7.
