Yako Casino Review
Last updated: 19 August 2021
Yako Casino is another impressive online casino from the reputable L&L Europe group that also runs Fun Casino, All British, Hyper Casino, Casino Casino, Yeti Casino and few other venues.
Established back in 2014 and holding licences from the UK, Malta and Sweden, Yako is a safe and secure online casino that has built an excellent reputation over the years.
Its target markets include the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Canada, India, Sweden, Norway, Finland, South Africa and New Zealand, but customers from many other countries are welcome to join. Yako Casino is especially popular in India and the UK nowadays.
- Restricted Territories: Australia, Holland, France, USA, Estonia, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Russia, Turkey, Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Guyana, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kuwait, Lao, Latvia, Mexico, Myanmar, Namibia, Nicaragua, North Korea, Pakistan, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Sudan, Syria, Taiwan, Uganda, Yemen, Zimbabwe.
Casino players coming from Yako’s target markets will have access to both local and international payment options, while popular Credit/Debit Cards, e-Wallets and Bank Transfer can be used by pretty much everyone.
The good news is there are no fees for either deposits or withdrawals, while the good range of minimum and maximum limits is in place to cater to both casual gamers and high rollers.
Yako lists 0-24 hours as the expected processing time for cashouts, but these are usually approved within a couple of hours, which is definitely impressive. And with high maximum withdrawal limits (£5,000 per day), Yako clearly excels in this department.
In August 2021, Yako Casino added Netbanking and UPI, leading Indian payment options to their cashier. With MuchBetter and Jeton already present and UPI allowing deposits via Google Pay, PayTM and WhatsApp, players from India now have a great range of banking options at Yako.
Software & Games
Yako Casino boasts a quite diverse selection of software providers to ensure players from different parts of the world can enjoy a rewarding gaming experience. Some of the developers found in the lobby are Microgaming, NetEnt, WMS, Novomatic, Bally, Amatic, IGT and Big Time Gaming.
There are over 1,500 slot games to keep you entertained for hours on end, but we were hoping to see more table games and video pokers. Those looking for something out of the ordinary should pay a visit to Lottery, Slingo and Other categories.
Oddly enough, there is no option to filter the games by provider, but the Search feature is at your disposal. Using Search you can view the games from your favourite provider by typing in its name in the box.
Yako Live Casino houses live dealer tables were operated by Evolution and NetEnt, two of the best providers of live casino games. However, after NetEnt games were discontinued in December 2020, Evolution remains the sole provider in the live casino lobby. There are over 70 different games to choose from, featuring different table limits to suit different types of casino games.
Evolution’s most popular titles include Instant Roulette, Lightning Roulette, Monopoly Live, Crazy Time, Craps Live and Lightning Baccarat. When compared to some other casinos, Yako may only work with a single live dealer provider, but Evolution titles offer plenty of options and premium excitement, and there is not much more we can ask for.
Bonuses & Promotions
New players at Yako Casino stand to receive a 100% bonus match and 99 Free Spins, but there are some restrictions you need to pay attention to.
- Bonus: 100% up to £99 + 99 Free Spins
- Promo code: Not needed
- Minimum deposit: £20
- Max cashout: No maximum
- Wagering: 40x bonus
- Max bet: £5
- Free spins winnings are granted as bonus money

Cash balance and bonus balance are clearly separated in your account so there is no confusion. Your cash balance will be used before the bonus balance, which may not necessarily be a bad thing.
If you should happen to win big playing with your cash balance, you will be free to withdraw the winnings without worrying about bonus wagering requirements. Only after your cash balance is exhausted, bonus balance will be used.
And while the first deposit bonus is only available to players from certain countries as highlighted above, all players apart those from Sweden can claim a 10% Cashback.
Yako Casino runs many other promotions and tournaments, notifying you of the latest offers via email or SMS, giving their customers numerous opportunities to improve their account balance.
Security & Support
Yako Casino employs SSL and TSL protocols to encrypt all sensitive information and the casino boasts Verified & Secure seal from GoDaddy. The customer care team is available via live chat, email and phone, and they are usually very quick to respond to all queries and help players whenever needed.
The casino has got an excellent track record in successfully resolving player complaints, but the mere fact there haven’t been too many of those speaks volumes about their reputation. Yako holds The Pogg Deposit Guarantee seal and also works with eCogra and MGA to resolve any player complaints that may arise.
- CBM Support Test: We spoke to their agent Jalmari via live chat, receiving a quick response to our question. We were quite happy how they handled our query, no objections there.
Casino gamers nowadays mostly enjoy playing at trustworthy and fair casinos that happily pay out the winners and do it fast. Yako Casino ticks all these boxes and then some. Its customers also have access to pretty good bonus deals, real money cashback and top-notch customer support team.
We don’t like how the welcome bonus is available to only a handful of countries and would like to see more table games in the lobby. But, other than that, here at CBM we are pretty much impressed with Yako.
Yes. The casino is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission under licence number 000-038758-R-319451-012.
Unfortunately, the welcome bonus is only available to players from New Zealand, UK, South Africa, Ireland, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and India.
No. Apart from Sweden, all countries are eligible to receive the real money cashback.
The casino states all cashouts are processed within 24 hours, but that usually happens even faster, within 2-3 hours.
Yes, if you haven’t started using the bonus balance. Cash balance is used first and you can withdraw your real money winnings without any restrictions.
