The name "Kerching" rekindles the atmosphere of bricks-and-mortar casinos – and indeed, you can enjoy something of a similar atmosphere on this site.
Top highlights: Games from a huge range of software providers; website design effectively optimised for mobile usage
VIP or loyalty programme: Yes
Other offerings: None
It's probably no coincidence that Kerching was established in 2007, the year that the first iPhone was released. This online casino shows many hallmarks of having been born on the cusp of the smartphone age – most notably, a stripped-down design that is easy to navigate on mobile screens.
This mobile-first philosophy, right down to the inclusion of popular mobile wallet services among the depositing and withdrawal options, helps to justify Kerching's place in the crowded online casino market.
By clicking the red ‘All Promotions’ button near the top of the website's interface, you can quickly discover the decent range of promotional opportunities at Kerching. Here are examples of the promos we saw after clicking that button:
A welcome bonus offering funds and spins on a first deposit
Bonus spins for making deposits at particular times
A loyalty scheme that players can be invited to join
Kerching has, over the years, slowly but surely bulked out its range of casino games, of which there are now 315 in total. While many of those are still slots games, they include classics such as:
It's tempting to think that Kerching might have been intentionally cautious with its range of casino games as a way of sparing mobile users from having to scroll too much. In any case, all of these games work so well on small screens that the absence of a Kerching mobile app seems no big deal.
The games include an impressive variety of branded titles, too – such as:
Planet of the Apes
Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
If there's one word that you could use to describe what Kerching offers, it would surely be ‘focused’. Other gambling opportunities often tagged onto casino sites – think the likes of sports betting – are nowhere to be seen on the Kerching site, which encourages users to stick with the casino offering.
Aside from the treasure trove of standard slots games here, you can dip into the occasional game of blackjack or roulette and even try your hand with a live dealer. You won't even find poker or bingo in this digital casino, although this could yet change, given the site's recent rate of growth.
While the range of games offered at Kerching might not look massive at first, it's a very different case with the software providers behind the scenes. Software companies that have contributed games to Kerching include Big Time Gaming, IGT, NetEnt and Microgaming.
The site's own operator, Nektan, is – as veteran players on online casinos will know – itself a formidable developer of casino games, many of which unsurprisingly feature here.
You can easily browse all of the options within the site's slick interface – although with the tabbed categories limited to ‘Player Favourites’, ‘New Games’, ‘Jackpots’, ‘Recommended’, ‘My Favourites’ and ‘All Games’, you might find it tricky to quickly peruse games of a specific genre.
Much of the ‘added value’ of Kerching comes, ironically, more from what it doesn't offer than what it does. With a clean interface that puts the focus very much on slots games, this casino is a simple choice for people who fancy some online slots playing without needing to download an app.
Kerching's loyalty scheme can be hard to spot at first; it does seem to be rather tucked down into the Promotions section. However, with Kerching's VIP Club – as it is called – largely an invite-only affair, advertising it widely would arguably be rather missing the point anyway.
As you climb through the ranks of Silver, Gold, VIP Premier and VIP Elite, you can pick up an array of bonuses on occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries – and even weekly.
Compared to many other casino sites, Kerching is fairly generous with the payment methods – including both traditional methods and e-wallet options – that it allows players to use.

Kerching has a relatively informative Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. Here, the site isn't afraid to be transparent on matters like how your personal data is protected and how the games are kept fair, plus some easy-to-overlook implications of particular payment and withdrawal methods.
Even if the FAQs don’t quite answer your particular question, Kerching still provides everything you need to ask that question over the phone, email or even the site's built-in live chat amenity.
Kerching keeps a fairly tight rein over which countries can join in the fun. However, territories where residents are permitted to join include:
The United Kingdom
Kerching is powered by the Gibraltar-registered company, Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited. The first two of the following bodies license Nektan, while the third regulates it:
The UK Gambling Commission
The Gibraltar Government
The Gibraltar Gambling Commission
While Kerching might initially seem rather modest and unassuming by the standard of various other casino sites, players who tend to game on their smartphones could be rewarded if they are willing to dig under the surface – especially if they are particularly enthusiastic about slots games.
There's plenty of variety in those slots games, even if alternative offerings are thin on the ground. Meanwhile, it's all wrapped up in a delightfully mobile-friendly website design. Sign up for a Kerching account today, and you’ll hopefully soon be experiencing quite the windfall.
