One of the most important things about any internet casino – be it an online casino or a mobile casino – is its theme. With the exception of the games that one can play, it’s the theme of an operator that catches one’s eye. As human beings we are visual creatures; we’re attracted to things that appeal on an optical level, which is why most online casinos try and make their veneer, or exterior qualities if you will, as attractive as possible. In the case of Oceanbets, the appeal lies in its ocean liner theme that brings across a fair amount of competency. You’ve got the whole tropical island theme combined with being away at sea, and while this isn’t the best theme I’ve seen an online casino sport, it is none-the-less a decent one. Ultimately, this operator ticks the boxes and does things by the numbers as many of today’s operators do. So, no surprises here, just business as usual.
Looks and Graphics
Oceanbets is powered by quite a few software providers, so in terms of gaming graphics you’re not going to be disappointed. No operator is created the same so the mixed bag of games you’ll get will be comprised of games that look stunning and others that look OK. And you know what? That’s OK. Not every game one plays has to look like it was carved from gold. Great graphics are nice, but great wins are much greater. As I have already made known, the casino’s exterior qualities are meant to mimic that of a boat cruise. The user-friendliness of the website is decent and thus navigation is easy. What I really liked was that a lot of the games could be played in practice play right then and there in the browser – and they were on display.
Gaming and Payouts
Oceanbets is powered by a series of really well-known and lesser known operators to give it more than 300 games. All the usual suspects are there – slots, table games like online blackjack and even live dealer casino games. I’ll be quite honest and admit that I actually didn’t see that one coming – the live dealer games. But, as I have often noted in the past, live dealer casino games are growing and expanding really fast and to be without them is to do yourself a disservice. According to their website, Oceanbets is powered by Betsoft, NextGen Gaming, 1 x 2 Gaming, Viaden Gaming, Amaya, Thunderkick, Nektan and Lighting Box.
Banking and Support
Banking and support is handled via the usual channels – support staff and an array of banking options to make your transactions as quick and convenient as possible. The support team can be gotten hold of via the casino’s live chat or via email. There’s also a FAQ section. Banking can be done via Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa Electron, Neteller, Skrill, Click and Buy, Entropay, Diners Club, Ecopayz, Western Union and an International Bank Transfer.
Awards, Features and Bonuses
First time Canadian online casino players can expect a sizeable and one time deposit bonus to the value of C$2000. These days the majority of operators who provide an offer of this size and magnitude will split it up into at least 4 smaller ones. But in the case of Oceanbets it’s just made on a single deposit, so if you are going to buy into it, best you make the most of it. But, as I always suggest, read the terms and conditions. This deposit bonus has a wagering requirement of 33 times, which is a bit better than a lot of other deposit bonuses out there.
