Yukon Gold Casino ReviewNot available in the NA
The Yukon River in Canada was the site of one of history’s greatest gold rushes. Back in the 19th century the snowy mountains of the Klondike attracted as many as 100,000 prospectors in just three years. Today, the Yukon Gold Casino is offering hundreds of games across the whole casino market, hoping to tempt millions of players to sign up. The site looks good and delivers a great experience to players who are tempted in by a generous welcome offer, a huge range of games – not just slots but green-baize casino and card games, big-win progressive machines, and a good selection of “other” games – and a slick operation that works well.

Pros & Cons of Yukon Gold Casino
We like a site that looks good. It may be superficial to us, but a good looking front-end usually ties in with good behind-the-scenes work. Yukon Gold has a head start then, because the site looks great, with nicely themed colours and imagery. The layout is nice and easy to use – on all platforms – and you’ll never find yourself lost or wondering where to click. They’re good on information too, with a big list of payout percentages the first thing you see when you arrive on the splash page, and an enormous list of games, largely from Microgaming, a trusted operator if ever there was one.
Less easy to find are the FAQs – a shame, because they’re very useful – and the help resources and contact details, which are addressed to a different organisation than the casino URL. This is also a download casino, so you can download an app to your device or desktop to play – that’s not to everyone’s taste.
Good looking and working smoothly, then, but with some work to do on transparency and player support signposting.
Software & Games
There are no doubts as to the number and quality of games on offer. Microgaming has been around for a while, and in 2017 were able to unveil their own skyscraper home on the Isle of Man. They have an excellent reputation – including the world record for the world’s largest ever online jackpot – and the furthest thing from a fly-by-night operator you can imagine in the casino business.
They are behind the 500 and counting games that Yukon Gold Casino offers. These games are split across six categories: slots, roulette, blackjack, video poker, progressive jackpot games, and other games, including the likes of bingo, instant-win scratch cards, and poker variants.
That’s a lot of choices! If you have a game theme you like, or a particular play style that suits you then you should find it here. But it might not be easy to find. It’s great to see a list of games with their theoretical return to players (RTP), but that’s not always the easiest way to find your way around – keep referring back to Slots Advisor for new game reviews and category searchers I guess.
You’ll already know a lot of these games, like Big Kahuna, Dragon’s Loot, Playboy™ Gold, and Sugar Parade. Roulette comes with the full set of variants. Blackjack is available in single- and multi-hand versions. Poker too can be enjoyed in all its forms. Mega Moolah and other progressive jackpot games have top prizes ticking up to the hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Is Yukon Gold Casino Safe?
Yes, you should be perfectly safe playing at Yukon Gold Casino. Of course, you should always take some precautions when playing online, so ensure that you are at the official site with the secure browsing symbol.
The site is registered by the Malta Gaming Authority (as part of the Apollo Entertainment Limited umbrella company) with a proper street address on the island in the EU. It is also registered to the UK Gambling Commission. And, to save you the trouble, we’ve clicked through on these links and can confirm that they are live and go to legitimate full licenses.
Also, the good news is the link to established payment partners and gambling addiction support organisations and a full, legitimate list of restricted countries – bad news if you want to play your slots from Western Sahara, good news if you want a site that is regulated and registered.
So we reckon you can trust your money to the Microgaming machines at Yukon Gold Casino. But how do you get it to them?
Very easily! We won’t list everything here, but if you can’t pay Yukon Gold Casino then you’re probably not using legitimate methods. At our time of visiting, the site was accepting payments from Visa, MasterCard, and Diners credit cards; by debit cards from Visa Electron, Maestro, and Entropay; through the e-wallets: PayPal, NETELLER, Skrill, and Qiwi; by PaySafeCard or by transfer into a UK-based bank account.
Deposits are credited instantly – they promise – and you can withdraw by check if you are taking out £300 or more, though withdrawals take much longer than deposits as is usual.
More and more players are playing on the go these days, so they will be pleased to hear that Yukon Gold Casino can go wherever your phone, tablet or other online device goes, and that applies pretty much whatever operating system or brand of device you’re using.
This is a Microgaming site, so you can expect an excellent performance on your device, with the quality of the graphics and game-playing experience really shining through, no matter the size of your screen.
Having somewhere to turn when things go wrong is just about the most important thing an online casino can offer. The best video slots in the world are no use if it takes three days to reset your password or you can’t find anyone to help you with a withdrawal.
Luckily for players, Yukon Gold Casino has an excellent set of help options, starting off with a comprehensive FAQs – though we’d love that to be better signposted. You can call up a 24/7 live chat help option, which also handles all email support requests sent to [email protected].
Lots of players like a phone line, but that wasn’t on offer on our visit – it has been reported elsewhere.
Yukon Gold Casino has plenty going for it. It looks good and it works well and has a magnificently large set of games – across all the popular styles – from a great games company.
There are slight downsides. While the site is well designed, it’s sometimes hard to find what you’re looking for in terms of support and help options. And there are loads of games, but it’s an exclusive site, so if Microgaming isn’t your cup of tea then you’re in trouble. And great branding kind of obscures that this is part of a large group – Apollo – that some players may have an issue with.
So, players needn’t rush to join this Yukon gold rush, but they’d be silly to ignore a safe, reliable site with great functionality, lots of user-friendly features and nothing much to put in the downsides column. We say get your payment methods sorted out, grab a pick, a shovel and a gold pan and get digging into Yukon Gold!
