With the heat of summer fading for yet another year, many online casino fans start getting ready to stow away at home on those chillier nights. So, some players will be on the lookout for new operators for an added boost of novelty and thrills. As always, NetEnt Casino takes it upon itself to bring you the latest and the hottest from the scene. And even in September, things are looking up with 10 new casinos that enter on the scene with a bang. This is double what we’re used to seeing in these monthly articles. But it’s just a sign of the online casino scene exploding. So, read on as we break them down for you.
New Casino September 2016 #1 – Luckystar
Luckystar welcomes you with a very sober-looking site that lets off the feeling of a real-life casino with a shower of chips and cards in the background. The streamlined layout makes navigation a simple task. What’s more, Luckystar goes beyond mainstream casino experience with the inclusion of a pleasant selection of virtual sports for sports betting fans.
Since it’s new casinos we’re looking at, we all know that one major factor that either makes or breaks the deal right from the get-go is bonuses and promos. Luckystar starts you off with compelling bonuses on offer. But if you’re going through NetEnt, place your first deposit and you’ll have an extra 125% added on top of that plus 100 free spins on NetEnt’s big hit Guns n’ Roses video slot.
There’s one more promotional offer you get exclusively through NetEnt Casino. Now you get the chance to claim back 50% of your bonus. A great way to get back on the right footing if things start to go awry.
New Casino September 2016 #2 – Vegas Paradise
Vegas Paradise is our second casino shortlisted for our September top pick list. And just firing up the website will immediately give you a hint why. Vegas Paradise is an online casino that lives up to its name in every sense. Starting with the visuals, the website is designed as a tribute to the modern birthplace of gambling – Las Vegas. The shiny neon tabs and buttons along with a night shot of the city are well thought-out visual cues to get you in a nostalgic mood for this modern EL Dorado.
Vegas Paradise’s promotions page is teeming with all sorts of offers – some for newcomers, others are limited weekly or monthly offers, cashback bonuses, freespins, and much more. It takes a while to read through all of them. But you are sure to be rewarded with something that fits your style or taste. So, let’s just pick the basic startup one to give you an idea what Vegas Paradise are on about:
- 1st deposit – extra 100% (maximum €200)
- 2nd deposit – extra 50% (€300)
- 3rd deposit – extra100% (€300)
New Casino September 2016 #3 – Betive
Next up is our 3rd choice for this month’s list – Betive. In a nutshell, I’d say that Betive is for those players who want to cut through the fluff and down to some serious playing with an online casino that inspires maturity and trustworthiness. Betive, founded by Bethard – a veteran in sportsbook – lets you choose from 3 categories: casino, live casino, and sports. It also includes NetEnt Casino pooled jackpots Hall of Gods, Mega Fortune, and Arabian Nights are also listed here.
The sports betting page comes across as very elaborate, but after a quick glance around, it becomes clear it’s laid out intuitively. You can choose from different types of sports, competitions, and countries depending on the sport. This aspect reflects where Betive’s solid foundation really lies.
Betive’s promotions are a praiseworthy job considering that their sign up scheme is rather original. The first promotion is freespins upon signing up. No deposit required. In the second, you get 12 different promotions lumped up in 4 different categories. You get to mix and match 4 of these bonuses. And NetEnt Casino is collaborating with Betive to bring you even more attractive bonuses. This includes:
- 60 free spins split up in 20×3 spread out over 3 weeks
- 25% extra added to your deposit (capped at €500)
- 40 freespins on your first deposit of €25
New Casino September 2016 #4 – Cloud Casino
Cloud Casino is another online casino that keeps things plain and simple so as not to lose sight of its target. And in this case, Cloud Casino has no reserves about what its target is – slot machines. While you will also find other gaming options such as blackjack, roulette and scratch cards, these take the back seat. All routes leading to slots are placed in the forefront.
Cloud Casino’s promotions are also laid to bare clearly on the front page in two different locations. They are also accessible through the promotions shortcut button. And Cloud Casino does a good job of updating and introducing new promotions for their users. Players coming to Cloud Casino for the first time are most likely to lay their eyes on welcome bonuses. Here’s what this casino gives you right away:
- Welcome bonus – 200% extra added to your bonus (up to €50)

- 3rd reload bonus – 50% extra added to your deposit (up to 250)
New Casino September 2016 #5 – Royal House Casino
Sometimes, just by looking at the name of a casino, you can know what to expect. Quite a few of them try to create a feel or ambience that reflects strongly a particular theme. Royal House Casino does just this with a title that convey a lush and luxurious impression through their name and website. But Royal House Casino doesn’t just limit itself to posh-looking eye-candy. Jump to the VIP page and it’s immediately evident that Royal House Casino have taken the time to work out some fantastic schemes for faithful players and high-rollers.

New Casino September 2016 #6 – PlayMIllion
PlayMillion’s site unfolds in a way that makes it uncluttered and easy to navigate. That’s quite surprising considering its outstanding choice of methods of payment, impressive language selection, quite a few promotions as well as numerous other options at hand.
PlayMIllion has a VIP lounge that runs you through all the milestones up to ‘red diamond’, and the benefits, as listed on the page, are higher cashbacks, VIP only events, higher bonus offers, and a personal account manager.
Game-wise, there’s quite a nice assortment to pick from. Included are NetEnt jackpots and NetEnt touch, upping the experience for NetEnt Casino fans.
A valid example of one good bonus among the fair amount of attractive ones on offer at PlayMillion is the welcome bonus. In a nutshell:

New Casino September 2016 #7– Ted Bingo
Next up is Ted Bingo. While operating primarily as an online bingo parlour, this site comes with its fair share of slots too, with a good deal of them being NetEnt Casino games.
Moving onto the good stuff, what you can’t help but notice is the attractive amount of bonuses consistently included and updated. Just to put things in perspective, here are two good ones:
- 1st deposit – 700% extra added (capped at €70)
- 10% cash back up to €500 depending on VIP level
Before moving on, there’s more worth mentioning about Ted Bingo’s bonuses. For instance, the VIP Club has a few intriguing incentives of its own. These include tidbits such as the promise to match any offer made by any other casino.
One last thing worth a word about is Ted Bingo’s own wheel of fortune. There’s quite a selection of prizes to be won here!
New Casino September 2016 #8– Bettingways
Bettingways’ presents its players with an online gaming experience that is twofold. On one hand, you have sportsbook and live betting and on the other casino/slot games. At a glance, Bettingways seems to prioritize the former. But considering that this site has almost the entire collection of NetEnt Casino titles lined up and neatly categorised, we can safely say that this casino doesn’t let down on this front.
In the promotions section, there are 4 welcome giveaways for you to reap. At a glance:
- 1st deposit – 100% extra (maximum of €100) added + 100 free spins on Gonzo’s Quest

New Casino September 2016 #9 – Jackpot Paradise
The people behind Jackpot Paradise are the same ones who brought us Vegas Paradise. While Jackpot Paradise’s site might not have that sheen to make that instant visual impact its spiritual brother has, it still offers a fulfilling selection of gaming options to be reckoned with. It has a fair amount of NetEnt Casino games listed, also including NetEnt Touch conversions. What’s more, the VIP club has some attractive perks that really peak at diamond level status.
Now, onto promotions. Perhaps, it’s already becoming common practice for this company to fill their promotions page copiously. Some of these are bonuses the Jackpot Paradise team give out on specific days of the week like Monday Madness, Cash Back Thursdays, Game of the Day, and a Big Cash Weekend Race. But for players going to the site for the first time, I’ll outline what will be waiting for you at the door:
- 1st deposit – 100% extra (capped at €200)
- 2nd deposit – 50% extra (capped at €300)
- 3rd deposit – 100% extra (capped at €300)
New Casino September 2016 #10 – Madame Chance
Landing in the 10th spot of this month’s list, as definitely the last but not least, is Madame Chance. This online casino really ups the ante in the art department with illustrations borrowing from a mid-20th C.-style American pop art with a touch of mystique evocative of the gambler’s muse herself – Lady Luck. On a personal aesthetic note, it’s my favourite. But does Madame Chance flesh out the beautiful visuals with a sound gaming experience? Let’s have a look.
As far as gaming options go, Madame Chance emphasises slot machines as navigation options mainly point in that direction, but not exclusively. A nice touch is that amongst categories in the video slots tab, NetEnt is the only provider listed.
As for promotions, Madame Chance has you covered with weekly bonuses, double comp points, a birthday special, and a happy hour. But if you’re a first-timer and you want NetEnt Casino to get you hooked up with Madame Chance, have a look at the welcome bonus:
- 1st deposit – 400% extra up to €800
- 2nd deposit – 150% up to €600
- 3rd deposit – 200% up to €600
