This online casino smells like a pie sitting in an American 1950s window sill, the kind some old-fashioned mama used to make. There is something wholesome and clean about it, that harkens you back to the times when everything was sturdy and good, you know, before hip-hop. Perhaps it’s the choice of font, the colours used or both, but we can’t help but get that good old-timey feel.
A new arrival on the scene, FreakyVegas is on a mission to make their casino appealing to both older and younger generations; a mission we think they have accomplished rather well. Slick navigation techniques and large-screen layouts are ditched in favour of traditional and conservative techniques.
It isn’t sexist if it’s old.
But it works. We like the «sortable» menu where you can easily swap between New games, Top games and Popular games (though the distinction between Top and Popular is not a lot) and we also like the large and easy-to-find buttons if you want to Play for real or go Full screen. «Function over form» I say, and it’s a workable theory which the designers have thought about. The last thing we want is the older generation getting lost and not being able to find their way back to the home page, or (heaven forbid), the «Deposit your money page».
One thing we couldn’t understand, however, was the slogan used in the background of the website: Since American isn’t our first language, we had to use Google to help us figure out this strange and perhaps cryptic piece of messaging. We were disappointed to find out that it in fact didn’t mean to attach a freakish person to your back while sitting at your chair, but it referred to some old song from Missy Elliot. Despite the song’s terrible spelling («Get Ur Freak On»), vacant sound and monotonous chorus, it did prove to be a rather freakish video clip wherein halfway through Ms. Elliot harks up a horrifying loogie and hurls it directly into some poor sod’s mouth.
- «Ahhh, here it comes!»
- The riddle is complete. Weird and gross. WTF?

Software & Games
As we said before, we like the way they have presented their games. Once logged in, you are inside the «lobby» and you are confronted with a few dozen games. It is easy to move around from Popular to Top Games and likewise, it is easy to access the game categories (Video slots, Jackpots, Roulette and Black Jack), search field and the Live Casino games. Your gaming navigation options.
Unfortunately, there is not a huge selection at the moment, But all the games are powered by NetEnt so you can be assured of quality (see our review of NetEnt here). Some of the most popular games at the time of writing are Starburst, Dead or Alive and Gonzo’s Quest; but with new and very awesome offerings recently added, such as the Motorhead and Guns n Roses slots, these will definitely rise in the popularity ranks. Sweet win o’ mine. Thanks Slash.
The security on this casino is as good as they come, as the games all use SSL encryption. Boasting an MGA Licensed badge and a Gaming Labs Certified tick also puts them in good security stead, so rest assured, your money is safe.
The support options are, like most casinos, a live chat window and an email address. One let down was that the live chat doesn’t operate on a 24/7 basis, so we were unable to access anyone at the time of writing. Being a relatively new casino, we are fairly certain this situation will be amended soon. In the meantime, you can always use their email address if no one is there.
You can’t go wrong by getting behind these guys. Its nice design and easy to navigate website make it a pleasure to use and be behind. It’s still in its early stages but expect a lot more to come from this up and coming, yet old-timey-feel casino. Get into it while it’s still warm! Or you can check out more games.
