Le Bon Casino Review
Introducing Le Bon Casino
Le Bon Casino is aimed at French players, but will accept players from other countries, provided they can read a little French or get by with translators.
The site’s ethos is based around the idea that other casinos promise the moon and rarely deliver, so the team of veterans behind Le Bon aim to offer an unrivalled experience for all players, new and old.
This site is operated by Ace Revenue Group, which has been in action since 2009. This powerful affiliate platform with some major casinos like Royal Ace and Slot Madness. Le Bon Casino itself has been operational since 2015 and though it is new, it packs a stylish layout, distinct theme and a host of Real Time Gaming slots.
This site offers either a download or instant play through flash, but the latter really works fine and there’s no need to download, unless a player becomes a regular. The main slots area appears just under a large graphic panel, listed as animated tiles. Hovering over one gives a real or demo play option.
Players have some categories to narrow things down, but no search. The games are fast to load, but they appear in quite a small window in the middle of the screen. There’s an options bar and the background is neatly faded out, but a larger view would be ideal.
The games here are provided by RTG or Real Time Gaming. While the presence of just one provider does limit variety, there’s a bit of everything at Le Bon Casino. Players will find classic Roman slots like Caesar’s Empire, cartoon fun with Builder Beaver and some new titles like Cash Bandits 2. Cleopatra’s Gold provides the obligatory Egyptian themed game, or watch out for The Three Stooges which captures the look of the original show.
The table game selection includes a little of everything; roulette, blackjack, baccarat, pai gow poker and more. There are several video poker games, with Loose Deuces standing out for some really nice artwork. Finding the full selection can be tricky without a search box, but there are some strong roulette offerings here which are worth checking out.
Unfortunately, Le Bon Casino did not offer live dealer games at the time of writing.
There’s a useful icon at the top right of this site, which has mobile device symbols. Click one to get a QR code which your phone or tablet can scan to visit the site immediately. There are no apps here, but most devices will be able to access the site through a browser.
The mobile view of Le Bon is very good, neatly rearranging the site’s game tiles and promotional graphics into a vertical view. The branding stays intact, while navigation is quite straightforward thanks to a central menu with clear tap buttons. The game selection appears to be intact for mobile users.
Le Bon Casino can be reached via live chat or email. The site does not appear to offer a phone line. Fortunately, the live chat is very easy to use and the staff are very professional. This is open 24/7, which is always a huge plus point.
The site also offers a full FAQ area, which mostly focuses on depositing and payment issues, but should prove useful if players have problems.
This site has a full security certificate on all pages, issued by Comodo. Payments made through the site are protected by SSL and MD5 encryption.
Le Bon Casino is licensed and regulated by the Costa Rica government.
The site also uses the CDS dispute service to arbitrate in case of any problems with payments. However, the site appears to lack a responsible gaming guide.
Le Bon Casino accepts payments through MasterCard and Visa credit cards, or the Player Rewards Card. More payment methods may be accepted depending on your region, as the site also claims to accept Bitcoin.
The depositing page is quite clunky and doesn’t translate as easily for non-French speakers. Still, after one deposit this should be a smooth process. Withdrawals are slow here, taking up to 10 working days to approve and 7 to send. The minimum withdrawal is very high at €100.
Pros and Cons
PROS: Very good security, smart site aesthetic, good mobile site, multi-tier VIP rewards, incredible welcome offer.
CONS: Games from one provider, but some players prefer this.
