About Casino Calzone:
Casino Calzone is a newcomer on the online casino scene and they seem to be making a splash with a fresh and uniquely themed site that centres around Cal and his pizzeria. Did you hear that right? Yes! It is a pizza-themed casino and the theme runs right through the design of the site as well as influencing the campaigns on offer! Behind the theme, however, is a rock-solid online casino which is evidenced by the super user-friendly site design, large number of games from top game providers, fast cashouts, and reputable licenses.
There’s also some solid innovation on the site with a fresh new take on the gamification and loyalty programmes. These seem to have become a must-have for any new top casino on the market today. At Casino Calzone, it is called Holy Calzone and takes the shape of a virtual currency called Cal’s Cash and three Wheel of Fortune-style wheels that can be played with Cal’s Cash to win free spins and even a cash jackpot.
The welcome bonus package at Casino Calzone is welcoming, to say the least particularly when considering the 45x wagering requirement on the bonus amounts only. As part of the welcome package, a deposit match bonus is available on the 3 first deposit. A minimum deposit of €10 is required to trigger the deposit bonuses.
First deposit – get a 100% match bonus up to €100 and depending on your deposit size you will be awarded either 20,000 or 50.000 Cal’s Cash depending on deposit amount (under €100 or €100 and above).
Second deposit – get a 50% match bonus up to €150 and depending on your deposit size you will be awarded either 20,000 or 50,000 Cal’s Cash depending on deposit amount (under €100 or €100 and above).
Third deposit – get a 50% match bonus up to €200 and depending on your deposit size you will be awarded either 20,000 or 50,000 Cal’s Cash depending on deposit amount (under €100 or €100 and above).
The wagering requirements on any freespin winnings are subject to 35x wagering requirement.
Casino Calzone has weekly promotions for existing players that include getting additional free spins and Cal’s Cash with your deposits (and sometimes without deposits) and they seem to like to mix it up on an ongoing basis to keep players interested and ensuring that players get to try new hot slots as and when they drop.
In case you are down on your luck on your weekend slot action Casino Calzone offers Cal’s Cash Delivery which is a promotion the offers up to 5% in cash back on any losses incurred during the weekend. Note that the cash back has an upper limit of €1000 and it is subject to 20x wagering.
Holy Calzone! – this is Casino Calzone’s loyalty programme and we really like the intuitive simplicity of it as well as the cash jackpot on offer. As you play your favourite slots you accumulate Cal’s Cash which you then use to buy spins on the Wheel of Fortune. Then, you can play there and win lots of free spins and, as mentioned above, cash jackpots (up to €120,500!).
On the downside Casino Calzone has max win/withdrawal limits on both deposit match bonus play as well as free spins play of €5000 and €1000 respectively but in the scheme of things we only see it as a slight blotch on an overall great package of welcome and ongoing bonuses and campaigns.
Software and Games:
Casino Calzone has ensured that all the bases are covered on the software and game provider front with most of the big names present to satisfy all your slot needs! Providers currently on site include Microgaming, NetEnt, Quickspin, Merkur, Play’n’go, Yggdrasil, NYX and Scientific Gaming to name a few. Psssst, we have been reliably told that a few more are in the very near-term pipeline. In terms of the live casino, they’ve got that covered with NetEnt Live.
In terms of the display of the games they are all displayed in little pizza-base thumbnails. This looks great and in terms of games navigation, the site enables you to quickly browse the games by type. Besides, the lightning-quick search function allows for searching by game and game provider.
Licensing and Security:
Casino Calzone has licenses from the Maltese and United Kingdom licensing authorities (MGA and UKGC) which is pretty much as good as it gets and ensures that players are protected and have recourse to rigid and robust complaints procedures should it ever be required.
With regards to data security, all data is transmitted using state-of-the-art SSL data encryption to give players peace of mind.
Deposits can be made using Trustly, Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, Zimpler, and Paysafecard. Withdrawals can be to all of the above except Mastercard, Zimpler, and Paysafecard and in addition to the above, withdrawals can be made directly to your bank account. Once an account is verified the withdrawals are lightning fast (a few hours for e-wallets and a day for Visa).
Payment charges are applied to some of the deposit and withdrawal methods.
EUR, SEK, GBP, and NOK are the accepted currencies and the minimum deposit is set at €10 (or equivalent). And, minimum amount on the withdrawal side is €20 (or equivalent).
Casino Calzone does have a limit of how much cash can be withdrawn per week and it is €10,000.
Languages and Support:
The site is available in English, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish. As for the live chat and email support, they are available 24/7 in all the supported languages. After trying out some testing questions on the support agents, they passed with flying colours.
The theme may split opinions but this is a rock-solid casino through and through with a clean site design, wide variety of games and providers, great bonuses and offers, 24/ support, fast payouts and an engaging loyalty feature.
On the down-side, the lack of Evolution Gaming on the live-casino front, the lack of phone support and the charges applied on some deposit and withdrawal methods are somewhat disappointing but the overall impression is a great one and we are hoping for great things from Casino Calzone and the team behind it.
Well worth a deposit or five!
