88Goals is a versatile platform that combines betting and casino games. Casino players won’t be disappointed here because 88Goals offers a huge game selection from over 50 providers. In total there are more than 4,000 games to keep the entertainment going.
The owner of the casino is a relatively unknown Vazon Group and 88Goals is the first casino of the company. The casino is licensed by the Government of Curaçao, and this is usually a common licensing choice for start-up casino companies.
88Goals sits on a user-friendly platform and the layout is a mix of gold and black colours. A typical casino theme is strongly present with all relevant features.
It’s easy to navigate through different pages and there is a lot to explore at this casino. The huge game selection itself obviously divides opinions, you either like it or it becomes too much for you. I personally think that there could be bigger issues in the casino, so I never consider big game selections such a big problem. It all depends on how well they are categorized and 88Goals has succeeded in this quite well.
The promotions page has a lot to offer. There is a nice welcome bonus, seasonal bonuses, exciting tournaments, and lots of extras also to the sports betting section. I’m sure everyone can benefit from these bonuses and it’s a nice way to welcome many types of players.
Although being one of the less-known casino houses, Vazon Group has managed to pull together quite a decent casino. I would not let the Curaçao license slow me down, but rather give a chance to this interesting casino and see what it has to offer.
All registered players can enjoy 10 no deposit free spins! They're just as good as they sound like – you just need to complete the short registration process and then you can redeem your 10 free spins.
88Goals offers a very straightforward welcome bonus with simple terms as follows:
- Get 50% bonus up to C$100
That means if you deposit, for example, C$20 you will receive an extra C$10 as bonus money. The maximum deposit limit for this bonus is C$100.
I think it’s great that the bonus can be redeemed with a C$10 deposit minimum. That gives a great chance also to players with a small budget to try the casino and get some bonus to go with it.
On top of that, the bonus is valid for a full 30 days and it has only a 20x wagering requirement. It's good to note though that the wagering requirement is for both bonus and deposit. The bonus is forfeitable, so you can cancel it anytime.
Of course, this is not a big welcome bonus, but if you appreciate any small gift like I do, then this is a nice welcome to the casino.
The welcome bonus for betting is exactly the same and can be used when placing your first bets.

VIP / Special promotions
Instead of packing their Promotions page with tons of bonuses, 88Goals is focusing on different kinds of tournaments. At the time of writing this review, there were 4 exciting tournaments running at the same time.
With decent prize pools, these tournaments are worth attending especially if you like to play slots and want to get your name to the top lists.
I was curious to see how well 88Goals have managed their 4,000 games and I must say that I was quite impressed with the whole layout. There are plenty of categories and the game lobby is very easy to use.
The platform did not suffer at all from the big game selection, and it worked very well. It was easy to browse the games and they didn’t take time to load. Game crashing and lags were not an issue at all.
What I liked the most was the amazing number of categories to choose from. There are a total of 27 categories and the game providers appear in their own list as you go through each category. The selection was quite up-to-date, and it also includes lots of interesting games from smaller game houses.
I personally love different categories – the more the better. They make it so much easier to browse through different games and see the themes of your choice at once without having to go through the whole selection of thousands of games.
Being an outdoor adventure fan myself, I was happy to find a very own category for Fishing & Hunting. It might sound funny and not every casino offers this, but I feel like it just fits the Canadian audience perfectly. We get to fill our outdoor activity needs also on the casino side – no better way to spend a rainy day.
There are some big names missing, like NetEnt and Microgaming, but on the other hand, there are lots of other interesting game providers.
The jackpot selection is quite small and it’s missing all the usual jackpots. Also, the jackpot prize pools are not that big. Real jackpot hunters might want to play somewhere else instead.
All in all I didn’t find any major issues or bad things to say about the game selection. I think it has a great variety of games and every type of player has been considered. Whether you want to enjoy some classic slots or try your luck in card games, 88Goals has it all.

Desktop game providers
88Goals has a separate application, but at the time of writing this review, it was out of use. Because I couldn't try the mobile app I accessed the casino through my normal web browser instead.
The mobile version is easily accessible and everything you need is available there. The layout is very clear, and the size of the pictures and font are quite big. I find this very good because it makes it easy to see what you are doing. On the other hand, it takes time to go through the game selection as not many games fit on the screen at the same time.
Otherwise, the mobile version also has its downsides. It’s not as responsive as it should be, and the usability suffers quite a bit on mobile. It wouldn’t be my first choice for a mobile casino, if I wanted to play strictly with mobile.
I experienced a few lags and other errors that disturbed the use of the mobile version quite a bit. There are definitely things to improve here, and it would be important to fix these things soon considering how many players play on mobile nowadays.

Mobile game providers
88Goals offers an interesting and different Live casino experience. The typical live game providers, such as Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play are completely missing from here.
Instead, we have 11 other providers handling the live game selection. Most of the games come from Creedroomz which is a UK-based live game creator. They’re specialized in high-quality live games which are offered in many different languages.
Live games include all the popular table games and also a few nice extras, such as keno and sic bo. It’s good to note that Creedroomz lobby opens a whole big selection of live games, where you can find even more games to play. There’s a little UK flag on the pictures to indicate that it’s an English game room, so make sure you enter the room with the right language for you.
There are other game providers too, but I would try them carefully. I experienced some lagging and freezing when I entered these rooms, so they might not offer the best usability.
The live game selection is mainly focusing on classic table games with their variations, so there are only a few game shows and other entertainment live games available.

88Goals is licensed and regulated by the Government of Curaçao.
The casino does not only talk about responsible gaming but also implements it well on the user accounts. You can set up different limitations and do a time-out or self-exclusion directly from your own account. All these are easily available in their own sections.
I was happy to see all this because responsible gaming tools are not always visibly seen in Curaçao casinos. Other safety measures have also been considered well and I didn’t find any security risks here.
Considering all these factors, I can say that 88Goals is safe casino and I recommend to set-up the limits right away before you start playing.
88Goals offers very responsive and good customer support. There are not that many FAQs available, but what I like about the FAQ sections is that it goes through responsible gaming in detail.
You can contact them via:
- Live chat
The support is available 24/7 which is really great. You can contact them anytime and you will be assisted within few minutes. The friendly and professional customer support was able to answer all my questions appropriately.
Efficient and responsive customer support is a must at every online casino. I am giving full ten points for 88Goals’ excellent service.

You will be requested to verify your identity at the casino. This is a common procedure and it has to be done in order for you to withdraw your winnings.
88Goals accepts many types of documentation for your KYC process. You can choose whatever suits you the best and, in any case, the casino will notify you if more documents are needed.
The most common verification documents include:
- Proof of identity: Passport, national ID, etc.
- Proof of address: Bank slip, utility bill, etc.
The good thing about 88Goals KYC is that you can complete the verification process at any time. You don’t have to wait until your first withdrawal to do this.
I would therefore suggest that you get it done and over with already when you open your account. This will save you time and effort when the time comes for the actual first withdrawal.
The good thing is also that the Verify button is visibly seen inside your account reminding you to finish the verification process.
There are good payment methods available at 88Goals. They are not many, but they are well-known and easy-to-use methods.
You can choose to deposit with the following methods:
The minimum deposit has been set to C$10 which is a nice small amount to start with. I always like casinos that offer smaller deposit limits, because I know many players who just want to test and see first how everything works.
From your account, you can follow the deposit and withdrawal statuses. The withdrawal processing time is 24 hours. It’s good to note that due to the time zone the withdrawals are handled at the casino during Canadian nights from 8 pm to 5 am. Otherwise, the casino is able to offer quite fast withdrawals which is always a good thing.
Also, Canadian dollars do not appear in their own currency, but the currency symbol used is a plain $. There will be no extra conversion fees, so everything still works fine in C$. The casino has just decided to use $ as a common symbol for all dollar currencies.
