Online casinos don't come much newer these days than Genesis Casino, which launched in April 2018, just a few months before we visited the site for this review. It is operated by Genesis Global Limited, which is by no means the best-known name in the casino industry, but nonetheless runs such other trusted online casinos as Casino Cruise, Spinit Casino and Sloty Casino.
The other thing you will instantly notice about Genesis Casino is that its graphics and promotions are based on a space exploration theme - hence the 'Genesis' name, which references the 'beginning'.
As aforementioned, the promotions at Genesis Casino are based on a space theme, with such terms as 'bonus mission', 'shooting star' and 'lightspeed' being used throughout them. But in practice, you can expect the casino to bring you:
A well-designed welcome deposit-match bonus consisting of not only extra funds that you can spend on the games, but also free spins
A weekly deposit-match bonus
Weekly free spins
One of the most compelling reasons to sign up to Genesis Casino is undoubtedly its wealth of casino games - more than 1,300. Potentially even more important than that, however, is the fact that these games are gathered from various respected software providers, including such leading names as Yggdrasil, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, NetEnt and Play'n GO.
The gaming categories covered is simply vast, encompassing the likes of slots, roulette, blackjack and other popular and slightly more obscure game formats. This means you can take your pick from the following:
Vikings Go Berzerk
...and many more.
If you're after a casino portal that really does give you loads of off-the-wall choices for online gambling, or even just a sports betting section, Genesis Casino isn't the place we'd recommend. However, if you navigate to the site's 'Other Games' category, you'll see that it does still serve up some slightly more unusual options, such as:
Poke the Guy
Triple Chance Hi-Lo
We haven't seen many more graphically impressive casino sites than Genesis Casino to have debuted in the last few years. The site's colour scheme consists of various shades of purple, blue and white, enhanced by quirky intergalactic imagery such as human hands clasped around the Earth and an astronaut stood holding a roulette wheel.
One thing that you might not get accustomed to straight away is the navigation system for the site, although the 'hamburger' menu in the top left-hand corner of the page is nonetheless greatly useful for quickly finding such sections as 'Payment Methods' and 'About Us'.
As we mentioned earlier, the site also uses multiple software developers for its games, including the likes of Quickspin and NYX Gaming Group. This may not result in the most consistent experience across the various games that you play, but does help to ensure high quality.
The aspect of Genesis Casino that most distinguishes it is very much its space-exploration theme, although the impact of this on the actual experience that the user has of the site and its games seems largely superficial. Indeed, beneath that shiny futuristic exterior, Genesis Casino is pretty much just your standard well-sorted 2018 online casino.
As tends to be the case with such schemes on casino sites, the Genesis Casino VIP programme isn't something that players formally apply to join - instead, they must deposit and play through the site's games, in the hope of qualifying for VIP membership by virtue of their level of activity.
If you are fortunate enough to rise to VIP status, however, you can look forward to a range of perks on a par with, or even exceeding, what other leading casino sites offer through such schemes, including:
A dedicated account manager
Exclusive VIP events
Monthly VIP prize draw
Personalised birthday presents
Personal withdrawal service
Flights to Las Vegas

There are certain parts of the world where Genesis Casino either doesn't or can't operate, due to its services being deemed unlawful in the territory in question. Here is a list of the current such 'prohibited jurisdictions':
The United States of America and its territories
France and its territories
The above is not necessarily an exhaustive rundown of the site's prohibited jurisdictions at any one time.
Genesis Global Limited - the company that manages Genesis Casino - is subject to the licensing and regulation of the Malta Gaming Authority. From the perspective of UK customers, the UK Gambling Commission licenses and regulates the site.
The Curacao government also serves as a regulator for players outside the UK with regard to the software developers Microgaming, Quickspin, Evolution Gaming, NYX and Play'n GO.
The space-exploration theme of Genesis Casino may be largely styling rather than something that profoundly impacts on the gaming experience, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Even once you strip away the site's stellar graphics, you've still got a very well-rounded place to play casino gambling games online, with more than 1,300 titles to choose from, sourced by various leading software providers.
