Casino of Dreams review
The grandly-titled Casino of Dreams is an online casino that's run by a company called Broadway Gaming Limited. Broadway are based in Malta, and run via licences issued by the Maltese Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission for players based in the United Kingdom. Casino of Dreams seems to be the only online casino site that's run by this company, although they do run four online bingo sites: Butlers Bingo, Dotty Bingo, Rehab Bingo and Glossy Bingo.
Casino of Dreams came online in late 2015, and is powered purely by one of the top online software providers going - Microgaming. It offers a number of entertaining slots and casino games, plus promotions and a loyalty scheme.
So, will 'Casino of Dreams' actually be your casino of dreams, or your casino of nightmares? Why don't you read on to find out?
Pros and cons
- -Nice, uncluttered site design

Promotions and bonuses
Dreams usually begin on a positive note (unless it's the one where you're back at school, but dressed only in your underwear), but how does your experience at Casino of Dreams begin? The opener is a two hundred percent bonus match on your first deposit at the site, up to a maximum of £40, plus fifty free spins.
We always love casinos that make their T&Cs regarding bonuses crystal clear ... and we ain't quite loving what we see at Casino of Dreams so far. The bonus comes with just minimal details and a 'Claim Now' button, which when you click simply leads you to a registration page. You have to scroll down to the general 'terms and conditions' link to find out what's expected of you when it comes to claiming your bonus.
All bonuses are paid as 'casino bonus money'. The wagering requirement for ALL casino bonuses at Casino of Dreams is forty times the bonus, which is about the industry standard. You can only meet your wagering requirements fully regarding this bonus by using slots and scratch cards. Any wagering done on roulette, blackjack or video poker counts eight percent, while 'other' games such as craps or pai gow poker do not count at all, which is a bit of a blow. As you meet your wagering requirements, bonus money is transfered to your cash balance in increments of ten pounds. You do not use your bonus funds until your cash balance is at zero.
We could not find any details of any time limits associated with the award of the bonus, or meeting your wagering expectations.
Casino of Dreams does not have much of a promotions page. In fact the only other promo we could find was 'Free Spins Every Friday', but that came with no further information. We found more info on the VIP page - if you deposit £20 or more over seven days you receive between ten and twenty-five free spins on a selected slot, as long as you have climbed above the first rung of the VIP ladder.
More info about the VIP 'Loyalty Club': This is a five-tier scheme. You receive zero benefits on the lowest tier, but at the highest tier you receive a birthday bonus, twenty-five free spins on 'Immortal Romance' and up to a £50 bonus every Monday. The site mentions 'loyalty points' but does not mention how you get them. It also says you are notified by email when you move up to the next level of this VIP scheme.

All the software at the site is produced by the online gambling software providers Microgaming.
Slots-wise, that gives you access to 132 video slots games, and 74 3-reel online slots. The ones we'd particularly recommend are 'Hot as Hades' and 'Bridesmaids'.
Microgaming make a great number of table games, and a good number are available at the site. This includes fourteen versions of blackjack, seven versions of roulette, three versions of baccarat, nine versions of casino poker (including three-card poker and pai gow poker) plus craps.
If you enjoy video poker, then your dreams will really come true at this site, as they have twenty-two different versions.
There is no live casino here.
