It must be said that YakoCasino is rather an unusual name for an online casino unless you speak Swahili which not many Irish people do. Yako is actually a town in Burkino Faso but the relevance to the online casino is that Yako in Swahili means “your” so www.yakocasino.com becomes your casino and it is exactly that which has inspired this new online casino. All online casinos have a range of casino games but YakoCasino enables you to customise your home page so that you don’t have to go looking for your favourite casino games, simply log on and there they are. YakoCasino is operated by EveryMatrix Ltd who are experienced in the online casino world and are registered and licensed in Malta by the Malta gaming Authority which is one of Europe’s best known countries for online gaming.
Knowing that online casino players have different tastes in casino games and wishing to make YakoCasino adaptable for each individual the casino has chosen to use four different casino providers, each of which have their own unique character. They include big names such as Microgaming and NetEnt which are used by many online casinos but also lesser names such as NYX and Play’n Go and it is in the casino slots section where this difference is most apparent. One of the new slots is called Aloha Cluster Pays™ which an interesting 6 reel slot which instead of paying winning lines from left to right pays out on clusters of symbols anywhere on the screen and the more valuable to symbol and the more are in the cluster then the higher is the win. This slot is one of the new ones from NetEnt. Another new NetEnt game is called Glow™ and although the symbols are a bit strange it is a very interesting slot which has wilds which automatically double the win and free spins which also double the win plus it is possible to win more free spins during the free spin rounds. Amongst the newer casino software suppliers NYX which can also be seen as NextGen Gaming™ brings slots such as Cash Stampede™ which has no fewer than 243 winning possibilities plus free spins where the wild is held and in any combination with an animal (stampede animals obviously) creates bigger and bigger wins. If you fancy something humorous then take a look at Birds on a Wire™ which is like a 5 reel slot except that all symbols are birds and they land on three different wires. What makes this slot at YakoCasino funny is that winning birds are electrocuted and frazzled and being replaced by new birds flying in. There is also a multiplier so if your new birds also create winning lines the win is multiplied by two and so on up to 5 times. The real money on Birds on a Wire™ is when a bonus round is triggered as this not only gives you free spins but also increases the multiplier from between 2 and 5 to between 4 and 20 which can be very lucrative.
Promotions and Banking
As befits a top online casino creating an account is simplicity itself and the range of deposit options is as you would expect including all the regular Visa, Maestro and MasterCard methods alongside e-wallets such as Skrill and Neteller. You are also able to use a Paysafe card and even make a direct bank transfer into your casino account which is very convenient. When it comes to promotions, in order to attract new players to try the casino upon registration at YakoCasino you will immediately receive 10 free spins on the popular casino slot Starburst. In addition your first deposit will be matched 100% up to €222 and up to a further 222 free spins on Starburst. It is not sure how long this generous promotion will last but they are convinced that once online casino players have tried the new casino and set up their own preferences they will not want to play anywhere else so take advantage now and keep your eyes open for further promotions. It should be noted that this online casino is not available to players from the UK as the licensing requirements are different and the process has not yet been completed.
As with any good online casino these days YakoCasino takes the responsibilities to prevent problem gambling very seriously and to this end there is a very simple page where all players can set limits at the very beginning and although these can be changed later there is a cooling off period. Each player at YakoCasino can set their own limits for deposits within a certain time period, losses within a certain period, as well as a wagering limit and a session duration limit. It is of course the responsibility of the player to set these limits but they are encouraged to do so. If things really get out of hand then there is a simple procedure to exclude yourself from the casino altogether for any period from 7 days to a complete year.
A New Experience
YakoCasino may have a strange name but it brings something new to the online casino world and with the quirkiness and friendly approach it should be very popular.
