Fika Casino is one of the oldest Nektan casinos and was unveiled in 2015. Featuring a standard game lobby skin, this Nordic-themed operator boasts an expansive range of games and takes its name from a Swedish terms that describes a type of social gathering. With a Prussian-blue/peanut brown colour-scheme, the website adopts a wide-screen layout for desktop devices. The tried-and-tested Nektan menu is also in evidence and allows players to sort games according to type, provider and volatility.
Game variety is without fault. There are hundreds of slots as well as the usual collection of progressive jackpots. Live dealer, bingo and instant win games can also be played. Pleasingly, the standard assortment of big-brand developers are in place. These include Pragmatic Play, Netent, Microgaming, Blueprint and Scientific. Casinos that fail to deliver in this area usually fall by the wayside. So it’s encouraging to see that Fika has got things covered.
Tragically, Fika Casino offers the same anemic welcome promotion as Pyramid’s Fortune. First-time depositors are entitled to 10% cash-back on losses of up to £200.
It’s also subject to the same contradictory terms. These state that players need to deposit a minimum deposit of £10 to be eligible. But they go on stipulate that £50 is required to qualify for the cash-back offer. Which is it?
Although the shorter T&Cs found in the promo banner reiterate a £50 minimum deposit, incoherent small print doesn’t inspire confidence.
The second welcome offer awards players with 50 spins on Starburst, Aloha Cluster Pays or Finn and the Swirly Spin – a pretty ordinary incentive to be honest. The lower wagering rules do help but the rubbish conversion rate of x2 serves as the proverbial pin in the balloon.
Fika Casino offers an invite-only VIP scheme. As with a fair number of Nektan casinos, this includes invites to VIP events, dedicated account management teams as well as special promotions. And as is also the case with a fair number of Nektan casinos, on-site details are sparse regarding precisely what benefits are made available to high-rolling players.
There’s not much wrong here when it comes to game variety – there are hundreds of titles to play from the usual assortment of big-brand developers. Customer support is also sound and the usual deposit/withdrawal methods have been made available.
Sadly, the wheels come off in respect of the ordinary welcome promotion and its confusing T&Cs. You’ll be hard-pushed to find this offer peddled by many Nektan operators and with good reason. It’s just not very good. Our recommendation would be to avoid the bonus altogether and concentrate on pure casino gaming. That way, you’ll be in a better position to protect your gambling budget for longer.
