Having opened its virtual door in 2017, CKCasino is one of the newest additions to the portfolio managed by ProgressPlay Limited. This busy operator has built their reputation thanks to successful and exceptionally well rated gaming sites, such as Hippozino, MaxiPlay, Spins Fiesta and Conquer Casino, which certainly adds to the credibility of the newborn.

CKCasino website is a standard, though well-executed affair of typical black & gold colour scheme and structured content. Game categories are presented on and accessible from the landing page, Promotions, Banking and Help section tabs included in the top menu, and all other relevant information accessible through links at the bottom. Live Chat button continuously present on the right makes it easy to ask for help at any point in time.

Software & Game Selection

Software

NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen, Elk Studios, Thunderkick, Lightning Box, WMS, Barcrest, Blueprint Gaming, 1x2Gaming

No download is required to access the games, you can play them online, safely and securely, either on a PC/Mac or iPhones and Android smartphones. Though CK library doesn’t rate the highest in terms of quantity (300+ games in total), the operator has made sure to choose best games by some of the best software developers. NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen, Elk Studios and Thunderkick are the authors of most of the available slots, supplemented by a more limited selection of those provided by Lightning Box, WMS, Barcrest, Blueprint Gaming, 1x2Gaming, and a few other brands.

When you combine a large number of providers with relatively small number of games, what you usually get is a collection of the best each of them has produced. This is certainly the case here. Popular slots mix with brand new releases, and there are about dozen progressive jackpots offered to those looking for a life-changing win. If you’re into Roulette, Blackjack, Poker or Baccarat, check out Table games section which is home to about 30 or so game variants, including several Video Pokers.

The industry being as competitive as it is, it’s becoming more and more important that a good game offering comes together with an attractive promotional package.

License

Company Info

Operating with licenses issued by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission
Operated by ProgressPlay Limited

CKCasino operates with licenses issued by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Both of these organisations impose strict standards and guidelines to ensure their licensees provide secure gambling environment and treat their players fairly. The latest 128-bit SSL encryption technology keeps your financial and other sensitive information safe, while an RNG ensures games deliver random outcomes. Individual game payouts are listed on the site and can be checked whenever you wish to.

Contact Info & Social Activity

ProgressPlay Limited seems to make a point of making customer support staff available 24/7 in each of their online casinos, which is really as it should be. In the event that the site itself fails to answer any of your questions, feel free to contact the operator directly via online chat or email. Before you do, check if your question is already answered within the featured FAQ list found under the “Help” tab.

The webpage displays no social network icons, and a quick check of Facebook and Twitter shows no activity on the behalf of CKCasino. Either they’ve not got around to it yet, or don’t consider these to be communications channels worth the effort.

Verdict

ProgressPlay consistently brings out good quality, attractive-looking, secure and user-friendly gaming sites, and this one is no exception. Add to that fairly packed promotional portfolio, large choice of banking methods and round-the-clock support, and it’s clear they’ve enriched the online gambling scene by yet another good product. One thing we’d like to see change is the size of their games catalogue. What’s there is great, but in terms of quantity doesn’t really measure up to many of its competitors, some of which go well above 1,000 gaming products. Withdrawal processing time and max limits are another area for improvement.
