Handy Vegas Review
Run by Nektan and licensed by both the Gibraltar Gambling Commission and the UKGC, Handy Vegas’s game selection includes big-name developers such as ELK Studios, Microgaming, Red Tiger Gaming, and NetEnt.
Only launched in 2019, the casino has made an immediate impact among Canadian players. The $400 welcome bonus comes with a 10% playthrough for RNG and live blackjack (great news for blackjack players!) while the platform is fast and performant on both desktop and mobile.
Let’s dive in and see how Handy Vegas matches up to the best new casinos of 2019!
Blackjack Game Variety
While Handy Vegas has partnered with dozens of developers to provide slots, jackpots, and a variety of other games, 5 of the 6 RNG blackjack selection are provided entirely by NetEnt – a world-class developer. The other is by Nektan.
There are only 6 games available:
Blackjack professional Series
Blackjack professional Series
Live Dealer Blackjack
Live dealer blackjack at Handy Vegas is brought to players exclusively by NetEnt. While we’ve got fingers crossed for more games arriving down the line, it’s currently just the two:
- Blackjack Classic
- Blackjack Pro
While the games are visually different, the gameplay is fundamentally similar. It would be great to see a little more variation, but Handy Vegas is a young casino and these things take time. Both games are broadcast in stunning HD, with live chat between the players and dealer, and combined they offer a very good live blackjack experience.
Other Casino Games
Handy Vegas offers players a range of games in addition to blackjack:
Slots – Vikings Go Berserk, Joker’s Jewels, God of the Sea
Table Games – Texas Hold’em, Pontoon, Punto Banco, American Roulette
Jackpots – Divine Fortune
Other Games – Bingo
Built using HTML5 technology, the Handy Vegas mobile platform can be accessed by any player, on any OS, on any device! By simply navigating to the usual website, players are redirected to the mobile version.
While a little crowded with menus and buttons, the mobile casino is both fast and reliable. Players can access around 100 of the desktop games (including NetEnt’s live dealer titles!) and we expect this number to increase over time.
Even better, players can register straight away on mobile! It’s then easy to sign up for promotions and conduct banking without accessing the desktop site. It’s the complete mobile experience.
How does $400 and 150 free spins sound? That’s what Handy Vegas is offering all new Canadian players who come through their doors!
In terms of raw value, the bonus is pretty good: two 100% deposit matches and several hundred bucks is a great deal. The free spins are played at Wolf Gold, an enjoyable 5-reel video slot, and are worth $0.25 each – well above average for welcome bonuses.
The wagering requirements are 40x, meaning players must wager their bonus cash (or winnings from free spins) forty times before withdrawing the profits. 40x is about standard for modern online casinos. There’s also a 10% playthrough contribution for blackjack games, which is fantastic news for our players!
Welcome Offer Structure
- 1st Deposit ⇨ 100% bonus up to $100 + 50 free spins on Wolf Gold.
- 2nd Deposit ⇨ 100% bonus up to $100 + 50 free spins on Wolf Gold.
- 3rd Deposit ⇨ 50% bonus up to $200 + 50 free spins on Wolf Gold.

Some Premium Slots
Summer Fiesta, Sizzling Hot Mission – Still a young casino, the only promotion available at Handy Vegas right now is Sizzling Hot MIssion. Basically it’s a video slots promotion, the winner being the player who makes the most money with the fewest spins.
The results are updated every 60 seconds, and 400 players will receive a payout of at least $20. The winner gets $8,000! We’re expecting to see more promotions like this over time, as Handy Vegas becomes more established and popular among Canadian players!
Deposits and Withdrawals
Handy Vegas applies zero charges to deposits, but does maintain a $2.50 charge for all withdrawals below $60. In addition, withdrawal requests may be “processed” for up to 72 hours, tying Handy Vegas with the slowest online casinos in the country for banking. There is also a withdrawal limit of $4,000 per day (which is great) or $10,000 per month (which is not great). This could be a substantial restriction for VIP-level players wagering huge sums.
But that’s where the disappointing news stops: everything else is first-rate. There is a wide range of payment providers available (see list below) and all Nektan casinos offer full security on all payments.
- Bank transfer
Handy Vegas is a well-built and performant casino, with a strong, OS-independent mobile platform. While the casino ticks most of the major boxes, its only weakness is a lack of variety. There are RNG and live dealer blackjack games, but only a small range. There is a delightful $400 welcome bonus, but only one other promotion for Canadian players.
Handy Vegas is still a brand-new casino, and we can see it’s heading in the right direction. Become a player now and enjoy all the huge improvements the casino is going to enjoy in the coming months and years!
