With a hustling and bustling New York vibe, this Highroller online casino embodies all that is metropolitan. Its city theme extends through to a ‘progress map’, where players move along the skyline through different districts, according to how they play. There’s also an endearing little pigeon character, which acts as a mascot for HighRoller, appearing on loading screens and the live chat panel. You can also create your own avatar, which is a nice modern touch.
The name might be a little misleading as there is no need to be a high roller to actually enjoy this casino. This simply-styled platform features comic-style skyline artwork, of a city dubbed ‘Metrocity’.
There are over 700 games on offer at HighRoller, including table games and live casino. The majority of these come from some of the biggest providers out there, including Microgaming, Netent, Quickspin, Betsoft and Evolution Gaming. Many of these are also available on mobile, for which there’s no need to waste time installing an app. The whole lot is right there in your browser.
All this is simply scratching the surface. Let’s take a stroll in the city!
New players are welcomed to ‘Metrocity’ with a welcome bonus. This online casino has ensured the satisfaction of its UK players, too, with the following offer:
- 1st deposit: Wager-free bet on Dream Catcher on the 1st day + 10 bonus spins per day for 5 days (totalling at 50 bonus spins)!
Bonus spins are dished out at 10 per day for 5 days, on different slots each day. This includes Warlords, Goldlab, Spinions, Starburst and Sticky Bandits. We love it when a casino mixes up their bonus spins, giving players the chance to sample slots that they might have never played before.
Players should note that there is a maximum of £100 regarding the welcome bonus winnings!
Terms and conditions
As with most online casinos, this platform is only available to players that are over 18. On top of this, only new registered customers are eligible for the welcome package, which expires after a period of 30 days (and only applies to the first deposit).
A minimum deposit of £20 is required to claim the package. The £1 on Dream Catcher and the 50 Spins received will be distributed over the course of 6 days. You will need to visit the ‘Rewards’ section every day to collect each reward, which will be available to be claimed for a period of up to 24 hours. The rewards will be distributed as follows:
- Day 1 – Dream Catcher Bet
- Day 2 – 10 Spins on Turn It Up!
- Day 3 – 10 Spins on Northern Sky
- Day 4 – 10 Spins on Starburst
- Day 5 – 10 Spins on Second Strike
- Day 6 – 10 Spins on Book of Dead
Winnings from the aforementioned spins must be wagered a minimum of 35 times within 30 days before the funds can be withdrawn!
Bonus codes? So passé!
As with many of the newer casinos, no code is required for the welcome offer. However, we’d be lying if we said they’ve been completely eradicated. There is the option to enter them in your ‘Rewards’ area, so look out for any of these pesky codes offered while playing.
For their welcome bonus, the free spins are subject to 35x wagering requirements, and the bonus cash (unavailable to UK players) requires 50x wagering.
Different games contain different weightings (percentages) in their contribution towards wagering requirements:
- Slots and other games: 100%
- All games classified as classic slots: 75%
- 1429 Uncharted Seas, Blood Suckers, Kings of Chicago, Jokerizer, Mega Joker, Simsalabin, White Rabbit: 75%
- Roulette and Live Dealer Roulette: 35%
- All Blackjack & Baccarat, Casino Holdem: 10%
- All other Table games and Live Casino games: 20%
- All Video Poker: 10%
- Wish Master, Castle Builder 1 & 2, Dead or Alive, Double Dragons, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Eye of the Kraken, Pearls of India, Robin Hood, Tower Quest, Super Monopoly Money: 0%
Would you like some spins with that?
There are always bonus spins up for grabs on this platform. You can obtain more free spin bonuses (such as Mega spins and Uber spins) by exchanging the coin rewards you earn for them.

Promotions & offers
Beyond the fairly standard welcome bonus, rewards at HighRoller come from their coin and ‘sting’ incentives, where you receive coin rewards which can be exchanged for bonus spins. You can also grab the rewards of other players when they fail to login and claim them. You’ll find this in the ‘Rewards’ area where a Sting option will show when there’s one up for grabs.
Once you’ve collected a good volume of HighRoller coins, you can exchange these for rewards in the shop. These start from a £1 play on Dream Catcher, which will cost you 50 coins and go up to 15 Uber Spins on Book of Dead for 7,500 coins. This means that even smaller spending players can enjoy some rewards, not just the high rollers!
Payment & Processing time
You’ll find all the most common payment methods available at HighRoller, making this casino accessible to most UK players. These include:
- Bank transfer
HighRoller has promised that the processing of withdrawals shall be completed within 74 hours, for all payment methods. There is a minimum withdrawal of £20.
Casino Games & Slots
There are over 700 games at HighRoller Casino, many of which are slot games. You’ll find games from most of the big providers, such as:
Jackpots are a little limited with the only progressive jackpot on offer being Mega Fortune.
The best casino games are well laid out with spaces between each, which makes it a lot easier on the eyes. There’s also a search bar that offers search results instantly, allowing you to track down what you’re after in seconds.
The filtering options at HighRoller are decent, as far as game type is concerned. However, we were disappointed to find that there isn’t an option to filter by the game provider. There was also a menu for ‘other games’, which didn’t actually yield any results. We’d usually expect to find games such as bingo and scratch cards here.
Under table games, players will find some of their favourites including Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette. Although, players should take note that there are no poker games outside of the live casino section, so you’ll need to visit it to enjoy any poker games.
All the leading provider names you need!
Most of the major game providers can be found at HighRoller, including Microgaming, NetEnt and IGT. There are almost a dozen providers in total, meaning if there’s a particular provider you like, you’ve got a good chance of finding some of their games here.
Here’s the full list:
- Evolution Gaming
- Play’n GO
- NextGen Gaming
- Big Time Gaming
- Elk Studios
- Red Tiger Gaming
- Scientific Games
HighRoller offers relatively efficient customer service, with 24/7 support available via live chat and email. You’ll find the live chat panel in the shape of a small pigeon cartoon on the bottom right of your screen.
You can tell that HighRoller has prioritised the mobile playing experience when setting their casino up. Hundreds of their slot games are available to play on mobile, and the gaming experience on the browser was quick and every bit as good as the desktop version.
As with many casinos now, HighRoller doesn’t require you to install an app to use the casino via mobile. Simply open up your browser and visit the site as you would on desktop, which is much more straightforward than installing an app.
There are no promises regarding their VIP programme, and you are contacted by Highroller’s VIP team according to how you play.
HighRoller is one of the newer casinos, entering the field in 2017. Licensed by two of the strictest regulatory bodies, the MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) and the UK Gambling Commission, it’s safe to say that this casino is one of the more trustworthy virtual casinos. This platform is also backed by Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), a company listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
The comic-styled Metrocity casino offers players the chance to create their own avatar, with choices of outfit, hairstyle, sunglasses and more. This unique feature gives the platform more of a social atmosphere. The modern, social media-style approach is repeated in the ‘Gazette’ area of the site where you can read other players’ success stories, alongside their avatars. The vast array of slot games available also makes HighRoller stand out, with most of the major game providers represented, despite lacking in the jackpot area.
