Quatro Casino is the another member of the Rewards Group, which is responsible for dozens of different casinos. It’s been around since 2009, but has undergone a number of revamps since it was acquired by Rewards back in 2011. Unlike some of its sister sites, you don’t need to download any special software before you start playing at Quatro. The casino is hosted within your browser like most of the better modern casinos – so that’s a thumbs up from us. It also boasts a unique and newly installed welcome bonus, which is shared across your first 7 days as a depositing player as of 2017. That certainly grabs the attention, but what about the other attributes of this established online casino?
What Does Quatro Casino Look Like?
Perhaps it’s a little unfair that I’m reviewing Quatro Casino so soon after I first played Sloty, which is a brand new site that launched in 2017. The latter features a modern, colourful, spacious design that catches the eye immediately. Quatro is a rather more shall we say ‘traditional’ affair. It’s certainly spacious, and the games grid is in no way cluttered. But there’s limited design at work here too, while the graphics feel blocky and and the symbols that accompany the menu headings are dated. The My Account section looks a bit likes it’s been created on an Excel spreadsheet and pasted on to a Powerpoint page. If you’re looking for modern animation, we would recommend you look at the likes of Casumo, Cashmio or the aforementioned Sloty.
That said, if you favour a classic casino experience though, it won’t cause you any umbrage at all. This is clearly not meant to be a flashy, gimmicky casino. They get you registered, make sure it’s easy for you to deposit and then put you straight in contact with an excellent game collection. Plus, they’ve stripped away all the unnecessary clutter that causes distraction at other sites. To that extent, Quatro Casino represents the sort of no-nonsense, minimalistic design that is redolent of some of the earlier online casinos. Some players will favour this approach above heavily conceptualised sites. In no way does the design affect the playability of usability of the site. It merely provides a platform that allows you to access the games quickly. Why else would you be there?
Is Quatro Casino Easy to Use?
That last point is probably Quatro Casino’s key selling point. The site is remarkably easy to use. You register (the form doesn’t look great again but it’s easy to follow), you deposit, you play, you withdraw. The only strange part of the registration process occurs at the end, when your assigned a very complex and hard to remember username, which you need to use when you log in. I’ve no idea why. There’s 24/7 live chat support too should you encounter any difficulties. That’s always impressive from a any casino. The site is split into just five main sections – games, banking, promotions, help and My Account. Plus, the latter is so bereft of content and options that you’ll begin to wonder why other ‘My Account’ sections are so busy. They do find space to squeeze in a complete ‘game history’ charting all your activity on the site though, and you don’t find that in many other places.
So, yes, Quatro Casino is exceptionally easy to navigate and use. But such simplicity does come with a few drawbacks. The first is a big one too. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the Quatro Casino games collection now and I still have absolutely no idea how to either search for a specific game by title filter the grid by, well, anything. Don’t get me wrong, there are subsections, which separate the games into familiar categories (new games, 5 reel slots table games, progressives, 3 reel slots and poker). But when it comes to filtering by provider or shared feature or, well, anything really, it’s lacking. Now, this isn’t necessarily unique to Quatro Casino. Other sites in the Rewards group suffer from the same flaw. But most allow you to sort the games into an alphabetical list. We can’t find that option here, and I hope they address the game filtering issues in future iterations of the site design.
Which Games Can You Play at Quatro Casino?
Quatro Casino is powered by MicroGaming, which means it provides access to a fantastic range of games but the format of the site itself isn’t the fanciest. There are more than 550 to play including the likes of Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance and our personal favourite, Karate Pig. Throw in a full compliment of MicroGaming progressive jackpot slots including the record breaking Mega Moolah and you have a fine selection of online slots to choose from. That said, it’s always good to see a little bit of variety in terms of provider. If you count NetEnt, Play N’ Go or Quickspin slots amongst your favourite then you might want to look elsewhere. Luckily, MicroGaming offer arguably the most diverse and complete collection of games in the industry (perhaps NetEnt would have something to say about that).
Before you register with Quatro Casino, you can view an alphabetical list of all the games alongside their expected RTP rate. That’s a laudably transparent approach, but once I registered I couldn’t find the same list when I logged in. If it’s there, then it was well hidden in the depth of Quatro’s user experience. It’s worth mentioning again that you can’t filter the games list either, or indeed search for an individual title when you’re playing within your browser. That these features don’t exist when the casino has incorporated 24/7 live chat customer support seems a little backward. Still, if you’re a MicroGaming gan who doesn’t mind a bit of browsing, then you have a complete selection of the leading provider’s slots, progressives and table games to choose from. I’m sure that will satisfy plenty of keen gamers.
Quatro Casino Welcome Bonus
When we first spoke with the Quatro Casino team, they were very keen to tell us about the uniqueness of their welcome bonus. Their sentiments are well founded too. Although the bonus includes a familiar mix of spins and cash matches, the way they have both a) spread the bonus across 7 days and b) tailored it to the amount you deposit does make it subtly different. You only need to deposit £10 to get your mitts on a sizeable bonus offering. But if you are prepared to dig deeper into your coffers and hand over £100, then you will land 700 spins and a 100% bonus up to £100.
Those added spins are dished out daily across your first 7 days following your first deposit. Furthermore, each bundle of spins is attached to a different game, starting with a MicroGaming classic. You’re required to play your spins on the day of their allocation (there’s no carry over) and winnings are credited as bonus money. It’s a generously sized bonus with several different facets. We do have one major gripe though. The x60 wagering requirements seems more than a little steep. Here’s how the bonus breaks down, based on the size of your first deposit:
- £10-£19.99 1st deposit = 10 spins a day for 7 days and a 100% bonus up to £10
- £20-£49.99 1st deposit = 20 spins a day for 7 days and a 100% bonus up to £20
- £50-£99.99 1st deposit = 50 spins a day for 7 days and a 100% bonus up to £50
- £100 or more 1st deposit = 100 spins a day for 7 days and a 100% deposit up to £100
Why Become a Regular Player at Quatro Casino?
Quatro Casino does lack a bit of flair, but it’s likely to attract players who are looking for a simple, classic casino experience. As long as they like MicroGaming slots too. Deposits and withdrawals and quick and easy, customer support is on hand at all times of day and you will receive bespoke, personalised offers from time to time too. The site does incorporate a ‘Promotions’ tab but it’s hardly the hive of activity that similar pages can be at other sites. I’ve seen no evidence of any recurring promotions, but you will receive some offers by email when you become an active player. Thankfully, the Rewards Group have abandoned their previous penchant for spam so your inbox will be a much more sedate, focussed place when you register than perhaps it would have been in the past.
The Quatro Casino Mobile Casino
The Quatro Casino mobile casino is virtually identical to the desktop site. It has the same design scheme, the same menu options and icons and pretty much the exact same functionality. The advantage of such basic UX is that it’s easily translatable! In some ways, it works better on the smaller screen. It definitely looks better visually, with less blocky graphics.
I’m pleased to see that the 24/7 live chat function has been incorporated. Given the age of the site, it would have been easy for Quatro to have omitted some functionality when they transitioned to the mobile market. We’ve also tested it on both Apple and Android devices and the casino works well, with no formatting errors or jumps and glitches. Some pages are a little slow to load, but it’s not too distracting or onerous. Again, it’s nothing spectacular. But it isn’t too bad either.
Our Verdict on Quatro Casino
Quatro Casino hadn’t really hit my radar until I came to write this review. I’ve been aware of its sister sites Zodiac Casino and Captain Cook’s Casino for many years, but this one hadn’t hit my radar. Having played here extensively, I can’t help but feel slightly ambivalent towards this online casino. On one hand, there are plenty of positives. It offers a simple, straightforward playing experience with lots of MicroGaming slots to choose from. The welcome bonus is interesting too, and you can pocket a shed load of free spins against fairly small deposits. But then the UX is a little clunky, with glaring omissions such a search function for the games grid and the wagering requirements attached to the welcome bonus are far higher than we’d like too. In sum, Quatro Casinos is a fine casino and the pros just about outweigh the cons. But we’re struggling to find reasons to recommend it above other sites.
