How does the Promotion work?

The maximum Bonus you can receive during the Promotion Period is £30. If your First Deposit exceeds £10, you will not receive any additional Bonus in respect of the amount of your deposit in excess of £10.
Your Buy-in Balance (which includes your First Deposit) and your Bonus Balance (which includes your Bonus) will be displayed separately on your account as “Buy-in Balance” and “Bonus Balance”.
You can wager your Bonus (and any Bonus Funds) on all slot games featured on the Games tab on the Website ("Promotion Games") other than the following excluded games:
GAMES games: Blood Suckers, Castle Builder, Super Monopoly Money, Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge, Deal Or No Deal Jackpot and all "Vegas" games and "Bingo" games on the Games page of the Website.
All table games: Roulette, Casino Poker, Casino Heads Up Poker, Triple Hi Lo, Craps, Blackjack, Baccarat, 3 Cards Brag, Beat the Dealer, Casino Stud, Hold Em Poker, Heads Up poker, Hi-Lo Cards, Quick Bet Cards, Spoof and Quick Bet Wheel, 20p Roulette, Deal or No Deal Roulette, Deal or No Deal Blackjack
Funds wagered in any games other than the Promotion Games will not be eligible for this Promotion and will not count towards the Wagering Requirement (as defined below).
You can wager your Bonus (and any Bonus Funds) on any Promotion Games for 7 days from the date on which you received the Bonus ("Bonus Period"). If the Bonus has not been used, or if the Wagering Requirement (as defined below) has not been met, within the Bonus Period, then any Bonus Funds will automatically be deleted from your Bonus Balance at the end of the Bonus Period.
The maximum redeemable amount from your Bonus Balance that may transfer to your Main Balance (subject to meeting the Wagering Requirement (as defined below)) is limited to £2,000.
This Promotion (and the Bonus) is only available once per customer and you may only receive one Bonus.
How do you take part in the Promotion?
In order to take part in this Promotion and receive a Bonus you need to:
follow the link to the Promotion on the “Promotions” page or on the relevant advert or communication received and opt-in by clicking the "Opt In and Deposit" button to confirm that you have read and agree to these Promotion Terms and that you wish to take part in the Promotion; and
make your First Deposit of at least £10 into your Buy-In Balance.
Once you have made your First Deposit into your Buy-in Balance, the Bonus will automatically be added to your Bonus Balance.
This Promotion is only available to players with a GBP (£) / EUR (€) / USD ($) / CAD ($) currency Account which is converted at a rate of 1:1 (e.g. £1 = €1 / $1).
Unless otherwise stated in these Promotion Terms, your Bonus (and any Bonus Funds) cannot be combined with any other offers, promotions or bonuses offered by us.
You may not participate in the Promotion (and you will not be entitled to receive a Bonus) if you have previously been excluded by William Hill from participating in promotions or any gaming or wagering on the Website.
What Wagering Requirements and Stake Contributions apply to this Promotion?
This Bonus is subject to a wagering requirement of 40x your Bonus ("Wagering Requirement"). This means that you cannot withdraw your Bonus (or any Bonus Funds) from your Bonus Balance until you have wagered 40x your Bonus on the Promotion Games.
Each time you place a wager on a Promotion Game, the amount of your stake that is taken from your Buy-In Balance and/or your Bonus Balance will be deducted from the Wagering Requirement. Any amount of the stake that is taken from Main Balance (where applicable) will not be deducted from the Wagering Requirement (as shown in the examples below).
The Wagering Requirement will apply from the moment that the Bonus is added to your Bonus Balance and must be met within the Bonus Period, otherwise any Bonus Funds will be automatically deleted from your Account.
Once you have met the Wagering Requirement, the Promotion will automatically end and any Bonus Funds will automatically transfer to your Main Balance from where you will be able to withdraw them as cash or wager them in non-Promotion play.
If the total funds in your Bonus Balance fall below £0.20 at any time, any remaining Bonus Funds in your Bonus Balance will be deleted and the Promotion will automatically end.
How do Funds in your Account contribute to wagers you place in Promotion-play?
When you place a wager in a Promotion Game, the stake will be taken from your Account in the following order of priority:
initially, from your Buy-In Balance;
then, if the stake exceeds the value of your Buy-In Balance, the amount of your stake in excess of your Buy-in Balance will be taken from your Bonus Balance; and
then, if the stake exceeds the value of your Buy-in Balance and Your Bonus Balance, the remaining stake will be taken from your Main Balance.
If winnings are accrued from stakes made from your Buy-In Balance or Bonus Balance the order of priority as set out above will change. Stakes will be taken from winnings returned to your Buy-In Balance then any winnings returned to your Bonus Balance. Once these winnings have been exhausted, the order of priority will revert back to the original order as set out above.
How are winnings from successful wagers allocated to your Account?
When you place a successful wager, your winnings will be split between your balances in proportion to the percentage of the stake contributed by each, respectively.
Where you have a number of different promotions active on your Account (i.e. where you have opted in to a number of promotions on the Website during the Promotion Period and have therefore received separate Bonuses), stakes and winnings (and contributions towards any wagering requirements) will be applied to the promotion you chose to participate in first (until that promotion ends or expires).
How do you withdraw your Bonus Funds?
Once the amount you have wagered meets or exceeds the Wagering Requirement, the Promotion will automatically end and your Bonus Funds will automatically transfer to your Main Balance from where you will be able to withdraw them as cash or wager them in non-Promotion play.
If you cancel your Bonus before you have met or exceeded the wagering requirements for your Bonus Funds, then your Bonus Funds will automatically be cancelled and will not be withdrawable.
How do you cancel the Promotion?
You may choose to cancel the Promotion at any time by:
clicking "Cash in my Bonus" on the "Promotions" page on the Website; or
clicking "Cash in my Bonus" on the "Account" tab and clicking “Yes” on the popup to confirm you wish to cancel the Promotion; or
contacting our Customer Services team to confirm that you wish to cancel the Promotion using the contact details contained on the "Contact Us" page on the Website.
Upon cancellation, all Bonus Funds will be deleted from your Bonus Balance and any funds in your Buy in Balance relating to your participation in the Promotion will be transferred to your Main Balance and you will not be able to take any further part in the Promotion.

Playing at YakoCasino (aka your casino!) means a lot of extras to play with. One of the examples is our Welcome Bonus. Our Welcome Bonus is very generous and should give players a good feeling of what YakoCasino is set to offer you if you become a regular player! To start, all players will receive 22 Yako Spins after the registration process is complete. The Yako Spins offered by Yako Casino are complementary but, as with any other bonus, they come with specific terms. On this page, you can read everything about our Welcome Bonus terms and the terms connected with the other bonuses we offer. First things first, we would like to sum-up our Welcome Bonus.

Wagering Requirements at YakoCasino
While playing with a bonus at YakoCasino, it is very important to understand that we have a fantastic, player-friendly bonus system. First of all YOUR money and YOUR bonus are stored in two separate wallets. This means that, when you receive a Deposit Bonus (like our Welcome Bonus), you will always play with your own money first before you will touch the bonus funds. So, if you are lucky enough to hit a BIG WIN with your own money, you could proceed to request a withdrawal without being forced to play through the wagering requirements of the received bonus! The wagering requirements at YakoCasino are 40x the received bonus amount. This means that when you receive bonus of £10, the total wagering requirements are 40x£10 = £400. It is important to complete the wagering requirements for a regular bonus within 30 days. The wagering contributions (per game category) are explained below:
Slots: These games count 100% towards the wagering requirements.
Video Slots: These games count 100% towards the wagering requirements.
Other Games: These games count 100% towards the wagering requirements.
Video Poker Games: Do not count towards the wagering requirements.
Table Games: Do not count towards the wagering requirements.
Live Casino: It is not possible to play our live games with bonus funds.
I do not want to play with a bonus. What shall I do?
That's no problem at all! At YakoCasino you will receive bonuses automatically but there are various ways to either exclude yourself from receiving bonuses or to cancel a received bonus. If you wish to exclude yourself, simply visit the 'My Account' section and go to “My profile”. Here, you can deselect the checkbox to receive bonuses. If you have received a bonus which you do not want to use, the process is similar: upon visiting the 'My Account' section, click on the information box next to your bonus balance and select the option 'Cancel Bonus'.
What are the other Yako Casino bonuses and how often are they offered?
Every week, we have various promotions running that include giveaways of: Reload Bonuses, Yako Spins and Cashback. Our recurring 'Monday Cashback' promotion gives players, who were unfortunate enough to lose, a cashback bonus. Other promotions dish out Yako Spins and Reload Bonuses. See our 'News and Promotions' page for the latest offers!
What are Yako Spins?
Yako Spins are complementary spins or spins that require a deposit. While you play with Yako Spins, there will be no money deducted from your balance. Any winnings gained as a result of playing with Yako Spins will be given as a bonus that will be added to your balance. This bonus is given with specific terms (see below). Whether the Yako Spins are complementary or require a deposit will differ from time to time, and this will be clearly communicated with each offer.

In order to save you time when looking for a place to experience live games, I have tested all of the top providers and operators and compiled the results below. I will go into more detail about the individual criteria that I used further down the page, but the best casinos all score well in each category. I have selected six top establishments so that you don’t have to trawl through dozens of sites. Instead, you can rest easy knowing that any of these operators you choose has been through rigorous testing and is at the top of the live casino market
Every site in the complete list at the bottom of this page has its merits and can offer excellent games for players looking for something beyond the traditional slots and automated table games from online casinos. These recommended operators, however, go the extra mile, with products from the highest quality software developers, mobile play options, generous table limits and enticing welcome offers.
The Advantages Over Traditional Online Casino Games
There are many advantages of playing at online casinos compared to land-based establishments, but the main drawback has to be the limited atmosphere. Yet with live dealer games, the same thrill and excitement of playing in a bustling atmosphere is realised. Do you really need to travel to a high-street establishment, when you can see the games come alive from your own home? You can play your favourite games and get an authentic experience any time, day or night, in the live suite of your choosing.
The greatest appeal here is the combination of atmosphere and flexibility. Instead of just playing an automated game that uses randomly generated numbers, you are greeted at the table by a real dealer. They will address you using your chosen username, hold a conversation with you and make you feel welcome at their table. Their professionalism matches that of any croupier in a brick and mortar set-up. However, you can also take advantage of the live casino playing options and play wherever suits you.
Features of the Best Operators
In the next sections, I will take you through the most important things to consider when trying to decide where to play. These are the main criteria that I use when conducting my live casino reviews.
