Thanks to a huge array of online casinos available today, pretty much any playing preference is catered for these days. But because there are so many out there, it’s good to know which casinos fall into which category. Let’s take a look at the casinos that fit into a specific style category as well as hosting games from our favourite provider, NetEnt!
That classic Vegas vibe
Nowhere on earth exudes the glamour, luxury and heritage of casinos quite like Las Vegas. Some online casinos have chosen to emulate this mecca of gambling in the virtual world, creating a throwback to the timeless image of Vegas and casino gaming.
Hello Casino focuses quite heavily on slots and live casino, just the way we like it. Get €5 as a no-deposit bonus boost when you sign up and a 100% match of your first deposit up to €100.
With over 1000 slots, SlotsMillion does not mess around when it comes to offering players variety and quality. Get 100 free spins and a 100% match on your first deposit up to €100.
The colourful mascot at Karamba is a memorable character and the simple, game-focused layout of this online casino will definitely appeal to players who don’t appreciate distractions or fussy sites. Use our exclusive bonus code NETENT20 to take home 100 free spins on Starburst and a 200% match of your first deposit, up to €500.
Old-world glitz and glamour
While there is plenty to be said about Vegas, there is something about Old World casinos that simply cannot be matched. A sense of grandeur coupled with the opulence that can only come from stately interiors and a long history of fortunes made and broken.
Some online casinos have modelled themselves on these smoky havens, resurrected in movies as locations of adventure, romance and intrigue. It’s no surprise we feel extra special visiting these sites.
Step into the intoxicating world of luxury casinos at GrandIvy. You can almost feel the deep red carpet under your feet, the light from the gilt chandelier on your face. This is online gambling, with style.
Sign up through us to get 25 no-deposit spins on Jimi Hendrix, then enjoy a welcome package that includes €1400 in bonus cash and 100 further free spins.
It’s hard to think of anything other than a high-end casino when you click on to PlayGrand. With an eye-catching colour scheme and some pretty juicy promotions, this casino will make casual players feel like a million bucks and the high rollers feel right at home.
Enjoy a massive welcome bonus at this casino – a 100% match on your first deposit up to €1000 plus 100 free spins to use on NetEnt favourites.
The weird and the wonderful
Change is good. Strange is better. Some casinos just don’t fit the mould for what players expect and have done well for themselves by owning that unique standpoint.
Helmed by what appears to be some kind of deranged aviator, Thrills brings the fun every time. The casino has renounced its circus theme (quite loopy in its own right) and moved on to become a freewheeling, explode-out-of-a-cannon wild and whacky. Get 10 exclusive no deposit spins when you sign up through us and then go on to enjoy a €400 welcome package that covers your first 4 deposits and includes 20 wager-free super spins on Starburst.
PlayFrank may not look like it belongs in this category… until you take a closer look. The little one-eyed dudes swinging from the ceiling, wearing silly costumes and just generally causing mayhem are cute and fun, a reminder that while seeking those big wins is serious business, it doesn’t have to be boring.
Have you first deposit matched 100% up to €200, and 120 free spins will make their way into your account in a steady trickle.
When it comes to animals who might enjoy a good casino game, we have to admit that hippos are not the first ones to come to mind. PlayHippo however has looked beyond that and brought the heavy pink mammal into the world of jackpot slots, poker and more.
Sign up and deposit today to have your money matched 100% up to €150 at PlayHippo.
Time for an adventure!
One format our players are mad for is the adventure casino. This type of site gives players a holistic experience, tying together wins and achievements in different games to an overall narrative or story. The player then makes progress through this story each time they play.
We have to admit that the story behind Kaboo is in equal measure intriguing and a little bit creepy. Players must solve pieces of the Kaboo puzzle to move forward and in these dire times, it takes mettle to battle the forces of darkness.

Get free spins on your first deposit, starting from 25 free spins for a €10 deposit all the way up to 300 spins for a €100 deposit.
Live the casino lifestyle
Both of the casinos we’re thinking about here have a super-cool mascot for their brands, making them stand out for that very reason. Let’s take a look at these two suave characters.
Mr Green is pretty distinctive, even though we never actually see his face. Mr Green casino gives the eponymous character a backdrop for his lavish lifestyle, one we’re sure all players wish to emulate thanks to their next big win.
Sign up to enjoy 20 no deposit free spins on Jimi Hendrix. Your first deposit will be matched 100% up to €100, plus 100 free spins on Mr Green: Moonlight.
Who doesn’t love those antlers? The SuperLenny mascot is just one thing we really love about this all-rounder of a casino. Play some slots, make a bet on a sporting event – anything casino-related, it can be done here.
Your first deposit will be matched 100% up to €100 thanks to the SuperLenny welcome bonus, while your second one will be matched 50% up to €200. After each, you will be awarded 50 BUX, the on-site currency that can be exchanged for free spins.
