How does it feel?
Playzee offers a wide selection of casino games, from slots to live casino, from jackpots to classic slots. They feature all the major casino providers we could think of like: NetEnt, Microgaming, Scientific Gaming, Red Tiger, Blueprint Gaming, Evolution Gaming etc. We were glad to see the crowd favorite Megaways slots are there as well as the Slingo slots. The latter ones are some of the ones that are harder to get a hold of from smaller brands.
Playzee presents us with a polished and quite creative site. They feature a central character, Zeedmund the scientist, around which they create every other element. Thus we get a sense of cohesion. A brightly colored and energetic color theme filled with shining blues and yellows gives a sense of liveliness. This changes when leaping into their loyalty page. Here we’re inundated by an atmosphere of elegance and luxury; colors change to a more sober black and gold and even the main character dons a suit. Good attention to detail.
Their game filter looks and feels rudimentary. This becomes a problem due to their huge game library. The only way to sift through it and find something you like is by taking it game by game.
Playzee’s welcome bonus stands out quite well due to their high limits. 100% up to £300 is something that eclipses the offers from casinos in the same space. If you’re looking for an extended session this bonus can definitely deliver. Besides the bonus money you’ll also get 100 Bonus Spins on Fire Joker and 500 Zee points which amount to about another 10 Bonus Spins at the end of the week. Unfortunately, the bonus spins are drip fed at a 10 per day rate and you have to play them on the same day.
For players outside the UK, Playzee provides an entire welcome package. It features a second 50% bonus up until €500 and 25 Free Spins and a third bonus of 25% up to €700. As with the first bonus, these also have quite high limits. Not bad at all.
Veteran Player rewards and events
Once you’ve decided to play more with Playzee, you get thrust into a plethora of daily events and loyalty rewards. First of all, we have to say we appreciated the fact that every day there seems to be a different promotion. Most of the campaigns follow a similar pattern:
- extra loyalty points for a day,
- bonuses given depending on how much you lost,
- standard reload bonuses, usually 20-25%,
- bonuses given based on how much you wagered. These were usually capped at 20£/€/$,
- giving as many bonus spins as £/€/$ deposited.
There is a reasonable amount of variety and they gave an interesting spin on the standard reload bonus or bonus spins. The value is pretty low usually, but if your plan is to deposit little amounts every day to play, these types of events fit.
The more interesting aspect is that on every Sunday, they offer you some rewards based on how many Zee points you acquired throughout the week. As a “surprise reward” this method works pretty well.
Playzee also has loyalty points, which they call “Zee points”. As usual, based on how much you wager you accumulate these points. The end result is that you can expect these to amount to about 1-2% bonus on your deposits once you convert them.
The more interesting aspect is that on every Sunday, they offer you some rewards based on how many Zee points you acquired throughout the week:
- once per week, you get 10-100 bonus spins,
- once per month you can get £10-200GBP in bonus money.
As a “surprise reward” this method works pretty well. And we have to admit, in actual play these rewards seem to come at a quick pace. But, once you start looking at your play history you notice that the amount you’re getting is close to 3-4% of the total deposit. Whether that’s enough for you, is something you’ll have to decide, but we found that financially, in the end, we could get better value with other casinos.
Understand these before depositing
Surprisingly, we didn’t see too many limitations on withdrawals which definitely impressed our testers. Sometimes the withdrawals came a bit slower than expected but at the end of the day, the experience was reasonable.
They have a campaign where they offer a £10 free bet on a live casino table if you bet £200. But then lower down, among the other 10 terms it also says that you need to not bet more than £20 per round. It’s a live casino! We would appreciate not having to choose between the promotion and the opportunity to split on double aces in our blackjack hand, thank you very much.
We never like when we have to write a lot in this section, but sadly this is necessary in the case of Playzee.
First of all, let’s talk wagering requirements on bonuses. All bonuses have a 35x wagering requirement. But the big trick appears when you see what it applies to. With this brand, wagering requirements on deposit bonuses depend on bonus and deposit amount. So in practice they are going to be double what you see shown there. If you deposit £100 for their welcome bonus, you will have to turn over £7000 to cashout anything that’s left over. Tricky.
Next, Playzee has a very large list of games that only contribute 0-20% for the wagering requirement. It’s a good idea to check this list before depositing if you intend to claim a bonus since you could end up not being able to play your favorite game.
As we’ve seen with a few other brands, they cap the wins from bonus spins at only £50. We usually frown upon this practice because they diminish a lot of the value given via loyalty schemes. And given the amount of bonus spins they award as part of the standard campaigns and loyalty program, it seems to apply to Playzee as well.
Lastly, we found it a bit annoying how some of the campaigns had tricky terms that were easy to pass over. For example, they have a campaign where they offer a £10 free bet on a live casino table if you bet £200. But then lower down, among the other 10 terms it also says that you need to not bet more than £20 per round. It’s a live casino! We would appreciate not having to choose between the promotion and the opportunity to split on double aces in our blackjack hand, thank you very much.
All in all, we found Playzee to be a well polished brand with a lot of energy. It felt well suited to players who like playing often for small amounts and if that’s your type of game we recommend it. But if you only have a night a week, or even once every two weeks, this brand’s terms and conditions as well as their promotion schedule are not a good fit. Should you decide to give Playzee a try, you can find it here.
