FastBet Casino & Sportsbook – no account needed!
Most online casinos claim to bring something fresh, new and exciting to the table. Most casinos also fail to deliver on all three accounts. But every now and then, you come across a notable exception to the rule. If the hype is to be believed, FastBet’s unique business model could be a game-changer for the entire industry.
At first glance, FastBet Casino presents a picture of polished professionalism. Immersive graphics and relatively simplistic design are complemented by a very stripped-back navigation system. There’s just a handful of buttons at the top of the page to get you where you need to be, along with a bunch of bold and colourful icons linking directly to the action.
On the business side of things, FastBet.com Casino is owned and operated by BetHard Group Limited. These are the same folks who run Bethard and BetHard Sports, which in all instances are registered in Malta and licenced in the European Union. The BetHard Group is renowned for creating outstanding iGaming brands, engineered by passionate gamers for passionate gamers.
Impressive enough, but it’s the two primary selling points touted by FastBet Casino that caught our attention. Not only can you play for real money without opening an account, but they also promise the fastest withdrawals of any online casino in business. Both of which we put to the test and we’ll discuss a little later.
FastBet Registration and Account Opening
If you want to open an account with FastBet Casino, doing so is quick and easy. Just hand over the usual basic information and you’ll be knee-deep in the action in no time. As mentioned above, however, there’s no requirement whatsoever to register.
To date, FastBet Casino is the only casino we’ve come across that doesn’t make registration mandatory. All you need to do is deposit funds and you can play for real money via desktop or mobile. So if you’d prefer not to sign up, there’s no need to. A genuinely outstanding twist on the norm we’d like to see more of.
FastBet Bonuses & Promotions
You could argue that one slight let-down with FastBet Casino is the noticeable lack of bonus offers. At the time of writing, there was just a single welcome bonus offer available, worth a €5 bonus for every €100 wagered. Active for the first week only, the bonus can be activated up to ten times, making its maximum value to the player €50 FREE. Although to qualify for the full €50, you’d need to wager €1,000 of your own money.
Still, we expect FastBet Casino to introduce additional bonuses and on-going promotions along the way. This is, after all the newest addition to the brand’s growing catalogue.
FastBet Games & Software
New it may be, but FastBet already has the gaming arsenal of a seriously established casino. There are hundreds of superb slots to choose from, coming courtesy of the biggest names in the business like Microgaming, NetEnt, NexGen Gaming, Evolution, NYX Gaming, SBTech, iSoftBet, Quickspin, Thunderkick, and ELK Studios.
On the casino side of things, the action centres primarily around live-dealer gaming. Which is, by a wide margin, some of the most outstanding you’ll find from any provider online. Evolution Gaming powers much of the action, along with a ton of superb tables courtesy of NetEnt Live. On the whole, there are more than 50 live-dealer games to check out around the clock, which is no less than superb.
If sports betting is your thing, FastBet offers a complete online sportsbook of the highest quality. As a European brand primarily targeting European customers, football (unsurprisingly) takes centre stage. Betting markets for football alone cover no less than 58 countries, incorporating the four biggest leagues on earth – England’s Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A.
From darts to handball to speedway to surfing, it’s a seriously diverse and varied picture. No specific bonuses to sweeten the deal at the time of writing, but the guarantee of superb odds and immersive experience.
FastBet Mobile Gaming
FastBet Casino doesn’t currently offer a dedicated mobile app, but nor does it need to. We put the mobile version of the primary FastBet website through its paces on multiple devices – each of which delivered the same outstanding experience. Seamless performance, instant access to hundreds of games and the fantastic convenience of no registration necessary. For casual gamers in particular, probably one of the best mobile experiences out there.
As for their other big claim to fame, FastBet Casino claims to process and complete withdrawals in as little as 5 minutes. That’s literally 5 minutes from requesting the withdrawal to the money landing in your account. It sounds too good to be true, but turned out to be right on the money (no pun intended) when putting to the test.
FastBet carries out all transactions through Trustly, which enables players to pay and withdraw using credit cards, debit cards, and online wallets. In our experience at least, FastBet really did deliver on its word with the fastest and most consistently reliable withdrawals we’ve seen to date.
FastBet Safety & Security
As far as we’re concerned, customer support (or lack thereof) is the ultimate deal breaker. In the case of FastBet Casino, customers are offered 24/7 support by way of e-mail and live chat. We found the live-chat facility far more convenient, with decent response times and highly professional support provided each time we got in touch.
It would be nice for a customer service telephone number to be provided, but it’s not the end of the world.
In a nutshell, therefore, FastBet Casino does the extraordinary by actually delivering on its promises. Along with no requirement for registration to play for real money, that extraordinary five-minute withdrawal time is genuinely impressive.
If improvements were to be made, we’d perhaps like to see a couple more bonuses and on-going promotions added to the mix. Other than this, FastBet Casino is well on its way to becoming a real contender for the title in 2019.
