So, I decided to write an article about my experiences with some of the new sites that have been published in 2017. I chose these brands as I had only heard good about them and I believe they are the most player-friendly casinos of 2017.
Let´s start with Barbados, which you can guess from the name, is a very Caribbean themed site. The theme itself is a usual online casino look with a bit of hint of the Caribbean’s (Where we would all like to be now).
They have a very interesting model with welcome bonuses. As you can choose from several different ones. The welcome bonus goes like this:
When you deposit £20 you get 50% & 10 extra spins
When you deposit £40 you get 75% & 50 extra spins
When you deposit £100 you get 100% & 100 extra spins
I decided to go with the middle one, so I deposited 40 quid and got myself the 75% bonus with 50 extra spins. Which means that now I have £70 to play with. The bonus is also available on digital wallets such as Skrill.
Their wagering requirement for the bonus is not bad either, I would say it is lower than the average, by being a 35x bonus.
Their game selection is good, with having all the most popular game providers such as NetEnt and Microgaming and they are also offering something you don´t always find, such as Realistic Games. And you can be sure that they are having your way of depositing, as it looks like they are covering almost every possible payment method on their site, very good.
The only con I can really find on the site is that on my taste, the design is a bit too usual, but that does not make the gaming experience any less.

And then we have Casimba, where the first thing when you look at the bonus and think is “Is this real?” Yes, it is real, they offer a crazy 200% up to £5000 bonus! Yes, you read it correctly. And so did I.
So, I had to go and try this casino as I had only heard good things about it. The design of the casino is smooth and pretty to watch. This indeed is a very modern casino. and what really makes me happy, is that they have games from 20 different game providers.
What´s crazy about the bonus is that the welcome bonus is not everything. There is still something for the second and the third deposit. Here´s how it looks:
- Deposit: 200% up to £5000 + 50 extra spins
- Deposit: 50% up to £1000 + 50 extra spins
- Deposit: 75% up to £500 + 25 extra spins
The only con I think of is that their payment method selection is small, but still covers most of the players, as they offer Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, Paysafe Card as payment options, which are what most of the people are using.
With the bonus, I wanted to really take all out of I deposited £1000, which means that I have now £3000 to play with. Seems like I don´t have to create any other plans for tonight.
Casimba has been going on the same path, as its sibling casinos Miami Dice and Spinland on the bonus sector, but out of these 3, Casimba is my favourite by being the most modern one.

First what we had as the legendary Video game Leisure suit Larry has now developed into an online casino, which was also published only recently. As a fan of the original game, I just had to take a look at this site.
Creating the account is smooth, as it only asks your E-mail address at first, but of course, you have to give all the basic info, before you get to play.
My first impression is, that it looks very modern casino. To be honest, I am very impressed. The welcome bonus could be slightly higher, as it is only 100% up to £50, but I give their points back as they do offer match bonuses until your 3rd bonus. and 4th brings me 20 extra spins.
They also have the jukebox, which means that every 12 hours, the jukebox gives a gift. It can be pretty much anything.
Larry also recently launched their gamification mode called Larry´s world, since they wanted to bring back the original Leisure suit Larry atmosphere. Basically, more you play, more points you get, and more you can earn. This is nothing new, as there are other brands offering the same, but I kind of like this the most, since after all, it is Larry.
I have a feeling that Larry´s casino really is a casino that wants their players to come back and that I must only appreciate.
It is really hard for me to point out any cons, so I just don´t. I am going to come back and help Larry at its world. Find all the Larry details here
This Swedish giant casino is actually new in the UK. If as a player I am looking for someone with a good reputation, that it is Cherry Casino. I like how the site looks like. It is like watching an actual slot machine. Cherry was first established in 2000 and has grown into one of the giants in the business. But in the UK they are brand new.
They have come up with 100% up to £150 bonus which is quite decent. I decided to go with £100 and play with £200. The bonus has a fair 25xD+B wagering, which is quite usual on the markets.
Only thing I don´t like, is the colours of the casino but other than that I really have nothing bad to say. They do deserve their giantism on the markets. Find all the Cherry details here
So that’s it for my testing of 2017 sites. It´s been a pleasure. it would be hard to pick any favourite, but let´s say if I have to, I will go with Larry Casino (Not because we share the name). Let us know what´s your favourite on our forum.
