NightRush Casino Review

NightRush casino is a Blackstone Systems Ltd trademark and operated by Bethard Group Ltd. The casino has been operating since 2017 and is therefore still a very young property. The casinos motto is “Play Till Morning”, which somewhat explains the name of the casino as well. You’re meant to play here at night, after all work and all chores are done. And you’re invited to play as long as you like.

NightRush works with a group of selected software developers that are among the best in the industry, offering you a choice of the best games around. But besides a few hundred casino games, they also include sportsbetting as part of their operations.

The casino comes with two licenses, which is advantageous for their customers. And you can grab one of two welcome offers, depending on whether you sign up for their sportsbook or for the casino.

One of their biggest strengths are their promotions, of which there are many. But here are a few other things we noticed as highlights:

  • Over 700 games from excellent providers
  • Live casino and sportsbook
  • Fast payouts
  • Great customer service
  • Two gambling licenses
  • Plenty of bonuses and promotions

Two welcome bonuses to choose from

At NightRush you’ll be able to grab one of two welcome offers. The first one is available for online casino users and could give you a bonus of up to €1,000. The bonus consists of two parts:

  • First deposit: 100% and up to €500
  • Second deposit: 50% and up to €500

The minimum deposit to claim the bonus is €20. This bonus is currently only available to residents from: Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, Austria, Canada and Switzerland.

It’s important to note that the bonus funds need to be wagered 45 times before a withdrawal is possible, which is within reason. However, players only get 3 days to complete these wagering requirements and that’s about the worst time frame we’ve ever encountered. If players are unable to meet the requirements, the bonus and winnings from it will be cancelled.

Only slots, video slots and scratch cards contribute 100% when completing the wagering, though some slots are excluded (such as Blood Suckers, Cosmic Fortune, Jackpot 6000 and any progressive Jackpots).

Those who wish to claim the sports welcome offer can look forward to a 100% match bonus and up to €100. Here the minimum deposit is €10 and the maximum bet to stake when meeting the wagering requirements is €100. Right now, this offer is only available to residents from: Sweden, Norway, Finland and Canada.

The bonus funds need to be wagered 14 times on odds of 2.0 or higher in the sportsbook. The bonus is valid for 30 days before it or any winnings from it is cancelled.

Deposits made with Neteller and Skrill (as well as paysafecard in the case of the sports bonus) are not eligible for claiming the bonus.

700 of the best games

NightRush chose to carefully select the casino software providers they want to work with. As such, you won’t find a huge number of developers here, which is often the case elsewhere these days. The casino has added over 700 games to its portfolio, including vendors such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Quickspin, Elk Studios, Thunderkick, Nyx Interactive, Endorphina, iSoftBet, Push Gaming and Yggdrasil Gaming.

That means you’re guaranteed to find some of the best, innovative and most interesting slots currently available. Those include, but are not limited to: Birthday!, Blaze of Ra, Dwarfs Gone Wild, Lost Relics, Vikings Go To hell, Wild Scarab, Witchcraft Academy, Yeti, Pirate’s Charm and many, many more.

The selection of slots alone means you won’t get bored.

But there are plenty of table games as well. You get a choice among dozens of table games that include Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack and various Casino Poker games. Nearly two dozen Video Poker games are also available. We were unable to find any Keno games or scratch cards and only one bingo game can be found via the search function. So, when it comes to other games, the choice is rather limited.

An Evolution Gaming Live Casino

NightRush is yet another casino that decided to stick with the best. Their live casino features games supplied by Evolution Gaming, the leading provider in the industry.

Since the casino doesn’t exclusively focus on one product more than on another, the live casino is not extensive. Right now, you’ll be able to choose among 15 different tables, which includes Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Hold’em, Caribbean Stud, Dragon Tiger, Dream Catcher and Three Card Poker. Brand new is the Football Studio, which was introduced for the World Cup 2018.

Overall, the availability of games is sufficient and gets most players what they could be looking for.

A small but good selection of jackpots

One way to find the progressive jackpots at NightRush is by sorting them under all slots. There’s a tick box you can choose for jackpots and all available Microgaming and NetEnt jackpots will be shown. In total there are 18 progressive jackpots you can find that way. But we also know that Yggdrasil Gaming has jackpots on offer, though not all casinos feature them. So, we had a look at their games, filtering according to vendor, and were happy to see that all four of their progressive jackpot games are also available at NightRush. That means you’ll find the following among the life-changing jackpots:

  • Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis
  • Major Millions
  • Hall of Gods
  • Mega Fortune
  • Arabian Nights
  • Empire Fortune and Joker Millions

That’s a great selection. Beyond that, the casino features Ozwin’s Jackpots, Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Treasure Nile, Divine Fortune and King Cashalot among others.

No jackpots

An excellent sportsbetting and live betting offer

Online casinos that also offer sportsbetting are not overly common and it’s been a while that we’ve encountered one among the newer online casinos. Usually, a casino establishes a customer base first before they expand their product range.

But NightRush didn’t want to do things by halves and went all in right away. And they’ve done a good job, too. The sportsbook is very professionally done, neatly sorted and comes with a great layout that is easy to navigate. Thousands of markets are on offer across a wide variety of sports and special events.

The most popular events are listed at the top on the left-hand-side and include the biggest sporting events currently going on. The live betting section is separated, as should be the case, and also neatly sorted into different sports and all the current and upcoming events.

We really like the sportsbetting section at NightRush because it is handy for beginners as well. You won’t feel too overwhelmed with the selection here. Plus, plenty of promotions are available for punters.

Very responsive customer service

The customer service at NightRush is available around the clock, though you’ll only be able to contact the team via live chat and email. Since live chat is the preferred method anyway, that’s not much of an issue.

And we’ve found the team behind the chat to be very helpful, responsive and enthusiastic about their brand. They also engage with customers via various forums, making sure to address complaints and give thanks for any form of praise about the casino.

Additionally, you’ll be able to browse the FAQ section for further information, where a range of topics is covered. The terms and conditions are extensive, but also answer a few questions you may have.

Few but sufficient payment options

Thankfully NightRush has opted to present all banking information on a separate page with its own link. That’s always an advantage and means you won’t have to go digging around elsewhere.

Deposit methods are Visa, MasterCard, Trustly, paysafecard, Skrill and Neteller. The minimum deposit is always €10 and the minimum withdrawal €20. The only payment method not available for withdrawals is the paysafecard. No fees are charged one way or another, which is good news.

The maximum withdrawal in one go is up to €6,000, depending on your payment method. Withdrawals of €50,000 or over may be paid out over 10 months in instalments of 10%.

It’s also important to note that a minimum deposit of €30 will have to have been made before a first withdrawal can be requested and that all deposits must be wagered at least once before a withdrawal. Keep this in mind before requesting a withdrawal as such policies may prevent you from getting the money as you would otherwise expect to be the case. These conditions aren’t overly tough, but you need to be aware of them to prevent misunderstandings.

Finally, the casino has a reputation for dealing with withdrawal requests in a speedy manner, so you should receive your money quickly enough, depending on your payment method.

Two licenses are better than one

That is always true for any casino. And we’ve known plenty of casinos that have even three licenses. But in this case, we’re happy to see two licenses. NightRush receives their licenses from the MGA and from Curacao. For European players, the latter is pretty much irrelevant, because you’ll always want a European gambling jurisdiction to enforce the regulations on its licensees. As it is, player protection is assured within Europe, but not necessarily outside of it.

As it is, we’ve not heard of a single complaint against NightRush outside of some misunderstandings regarding their bonuses and withdrawal policies. The casino is still pretty new, though, so only time will tell how well they will do.

A functional but unexciting design

The web design at NightRush is a little conservative, to be honest. The main colours are dark blue, probably to emulate the night. There’s nothing surprising or exciting about the menu and the layout choices, but that not actually a bad thing. You get the main areas sorted at the top of the screen, below the banner is changing to let you know about current promotions and then you get right into the games below that. At the bottom of the screen further links lead you into other important areas.

Navigation is smooth and easy, and the functionality of the design was chosen above any flashy gimmicks. You’re here to play ‘till the morning’ after all and there’s no need for unnecessary distraction.

Always on the go when playing games and placing bets

The design of the mobile casino is similar to the desktop page. It actually feels just a little bit crowded, especially in the area where you can apply the various filters to sort the games. That could have been tidied up a little more, but it’s only a problem the smaller your screen is. With bigger mobile phones or tablets it won’t be an issue.

Other than that, you can easily access all areas of the online casino, live casino and sportsbook on your smartphone as well. Loading may take a moment depending on your connection. The sportsbook is also a little crowded and offers much information to scroll through. You may want to get familiar with the sportsbook on your computer first before you navigate it on your mobile device.

There are mobile casinos we like better than NightRush’s, but they do a good enough job, if you like to play on the go as well.

Plenty of promotions for all areas

This area is definitely a big bonus at NightRush. The casino offers plenty of promotions and not just for casino players, but also for punters wanting to enjoy a special on their bets here and there.

Right now players can avail themselves of a World Cup reload bonus, NetEnt’s Mega Million’s campaign that also runs the duration of the World Cup or a combo booster of up to 30%. Then there’s a 50% weekend reload bonus, a ‘fun nights’ bonus that’ll give you free spins and bonus cash and the weekly secret surprises.

A 10% cashback promotion for the live casino is also available. So, whichever product you prefer, you can be sure that there is a promotion available.

At this time, NightRush has neither a VIP scheme nor offers any loyalty points.

Conclusion: A great start for a new casino

Considering how new the casino still is, there offering is excellent. You get a great selection of providers and games, a live casino and sportsbetting including live betting. The promotions are also a huge bonus and in most aspects the casino scores pretty well.

What bothers us the most are is the ridiculously narrow time frame in which the casino bonus has to be wagered. You’d think that 3 days is a typo, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. If you’re a sportsbetting fan, we can wholeheartedly recommend the welcome bonus, but casino players may only want to take the minimum.

The only real explanation we have is that the bonus is pretty generous to begin with, but new casinos have a tendency to be overly cautious and want to avoid bonus fraud. That doesn’t exactly entice players to claim the bonus, but it shouldn’t keep you from playing here.
