Background & Reputation
The self-advertisement mentioned above is not only a sign of confidence; King Billy is, in fact, a proud winner of AskGamblers Awards in the category “Best New Casino 2017”, so clearly the industry has recognized the high quality of products and services provided. All of the work was done by good people at Direx N.V. and under the supervision of Curacao licensing authority. Popular and highly rated BitStarz, Wild Tornado and Golden Star Casino are a few of 20+ other gaming sites managed by the same operator, so you’ll have an idea of what to expect even before you enter Billy’s unique virtual kingdom.

Bonuses & Promotions
Once you become a citizen of Casinia, which is what the land of King Billy is called, you’ll receive a royal welcome in the form of 50 No-deposit Free Spins usable for playing Starburst or Fruit Zen. They have the potential to earn you up to €50 which you’ll get to withdraw after meeting wagering requirements of x49. Your host will also propose that you take advantage of the Big 4 and collect up to €1,000 in bonuses plus 200 Free Spins with your first four deposits of €10 or more. Deposit No. 1 will be matched 100% up to €200, the second one 50% up to €200 (code WELCOME2), and the two following ones 25% up to €300 each (WELCOME3 and WELCOME4). Bonus funds remain valid for 14 days and are subject to 35x play-through requirements. Most slots will contribute 100%, table games and video poker games only 5%, while betting on progressive jackpots and live dealers games won’t help you at all.
Once you’ve funded your account four times, consider claiming weekly cashback bonus offered within “Every Thursday: King’s Gift” promotion. Unlimited wager-free cashback ranges from 7% to 13%, depending on your nobility title (= loyalty status) and is paid for a minimum net loss of €500. “Extra Weekend” is another weekly deal offering 25% bonus up to €100 and 25 Free Spins for deposits made on Monday (code EXTRA). All citizens are eligible for daily Free Spins claimable with deposits of €20 to €50 (20 FS) and higher than €50 (50 FS). Players paying with Bitcoin get to enjoy weekly “King’s Miners” bonus and collect 51% up to 0.051 BTC for deposits of 0.01 BTC or more. When participating in King’s Daily Tournaments, each bet you place contributes to your leaderboard position and helps you win up to 100 Free Spins.
Proving your loyalty to the king brings additional benefits. King’s Points are earned by placing real money wagers on slots (€20 for 1 point) and most table games and video pokers (€100 for 1 point). These points will not only deliver very tangible rewards but also advance you along the court food chain. Every newly registered player starts as a mere citizen until they collect a minimum of 500 King’s Points and earn their Baron / Baroness title. Further point accumulation makes you a Duke or a Duchess, and then a Prince or a Princess. Kings and Queens are recruited by invitation only. In case the title itself doesn’t motivate you enough, do note that King’s Points also open access to cash bonuses, and the higher your level, the bigger the bonuses you are eligible to claim. A maximum of €1,000 (for Citizen, Baron, Duke) and €5,000 (for Prince and King) can be redeemed per calendar month, with exchange rates ranging from €1 for 100 points (Citizen) to €8 for the same quantity (King / Queen).

Software & Games
You’ll not find many online venues offering such a large gaming catalogue and an opportunity to play all your favorite games at one place. King Billy has grouped 2,000 casino games in several categories and made them filterable by a provider. Almost 20 different ones have made their contribution, among which leaders such as NetEnt, Microgaming and Nyx, 3D slot expert BetSoft, highly innovative Yggdrasil, and less frequently featured Spinomenal, Habanero and BGaming. All their products are instantly accessible online and most offer free-play option.
Players can enjoy popular titles such as BetSoft’s Good Girl Bad Girl, The SlotFather and After Night Falls, Taco Brothers and Bloopers by Elk Studio, NetEnt’s Dead or Alive and Fairytale Legends, Foxin’ Wins and Great Wild Elk by NextGen, Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance from Microgaming, and so on, and so on. You’ll find not only all universally liked titles but also brand new releases and lesser-known gems. Games Collections additionally allow one to display traditional fruities and filter games according to themes.
Much smaller collection of RNG table games consists of several Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker variants, Let It Ride, Hi-Lo Switch, Draw Hi-Lo and Red Dog Progressive. Though King Billy also mentions video poker games, Casino Bloke has failed to find any.

King Billy’s kingdom can be entered via mobile devices as well as PCs and Macs. Using your little Android, iOS, Windows or Blackberry friend allows you to access all mobile games online. Multiple menus have merged into a single collapsible one hiding behind an icon positioned in the top left corner. Various filtering options are sadly gone, so all you’ve got to work with are two game categories (slots & table). What’s more, one has to keep pressing “load more” button on a frequent basis, so you’ll excuse if I stopped counting after 700 titles. In any case, you’ll find far more than enough to keep you occupied while away from home. The only major downside is that live dealer games have failed to make the journey from desktop to mobile.
- Number of games: 1,500+
- Mobile Apps: No

Casino Bloke’s Verdict
While listing “pros” was a breeze, trying to come up with “cons” was no easy task. King Billy, or rather highly experienced Direx, has done a fantastic job with pretty much everything. Huge choice of games can only be made better by expanding the selection of table games and other games, the promotional page is packed as is, and assistance available whenever one needs it. Maximum withdrawal limits might turn out to be a bit low for high-rollers as well as lucky players who manage to win more substantial amounts. Despite these small disadvantages, Casino Bloke was happy to join King Billy’s entourage.
