Even though Maneki only opened its doors in 2019, there is an experienced operator behind it. The virtual arcade is operated by N1 Interactive Limited. This is the company that has already brought Spinia, Betchan, the Bob and of course the N1 on the road to success.
Maneki holds a license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA/B2C/394/2017). This B2C license allows the casino to offer its service interactively to the end user, i.e. the visitor. The servers are protected by modern software from access by unauthorized third parties and all data is protected with modern encryption technology. Our experience in these important points here, as with all other N1 was very good and we have no reason to complain.
GAMES AT MANEKI
Now that we have established that everything is in order, let’s take a look at what games are available. In total we could count over 700 games. As usual, the largest group consists of online slot machines. These are supplied by 1×2 Gaming, Amatic, Betsoft, Booming, EGT, Elk, Endorphine, NetEnt, Play’n GO, Pragmatic and Yggdrasil.
Attentive readers will surely have noticed here that there are no Microgaming games in the program. This is certainly a small weak point. However, there are so many top games from the other developers in the portfolio that we don’t think there will be any boredom.
We really liked the fact that you can also list the games sorted by manufacturer. Also, the search box works with both game titles and manufacturers.
WILLKOMMENSBONUS BEI MANEKI
Was wäre ein Spielo ohne einen Willkommensbonus? Bei der Glückskatze gibt es ein Willkommenspaket, das auf die ersten 4 Einzahlungen aufgeteilt wird. Insgesamt können Sie sich so als neuer Spieler bis zu 900 Euro Bonus und 100 Book of Dead Freispiele sichern. Diese sind wie folgt aufgeteilt:
Hierfür ist eine Einzahlung von mindestens 10 Euro notwendig. Wer 50 Euro oder mehr auf sein Konto einzahlt, erhält zusätzlich 33 Freispiele pro Einzahlung. Der Bonusbetrag (nicht die Summe aus Einzahlung und Bonus) und Gewinne aus Freispielen müssen 45x durchgespielt werden. Wie immer zählen nicht alle Spiele gleich viel. Selbst bei Slots gibt es eine relativ lange Liste von Spielen, die von den Bedingungen ausgeschlossen sind. Hier sollten Sie sich unbedingt die Bedingungen durchlesen, bevor Sie Ihre erste Einzahlung tätigen.
OTHER OFFERS AND VIP CLUB
Regular slot tournaments are held at Maneki. These are usually advertised as a message on the player’s account, and there are also invitations to special promotions via SMS or email, if you have activated this option in your account. The offer in the VIP Club is hardly different from other offers of this kind.
You get points for playing with real money. The more points you earn, the higher you climb in your VIP level. At each level there are a few more perks. From the third level you can exchange your points for money, from the fourth level you get your own account manager and special individual gifts and offers. In our opinion, there should be a bit more in the way of bonuses to avoid being lost in the masses. Regular players who expect a good bonus program will not make any leaps in the air here.
MANEKI CUSTOMER SERVICE
There is an English live chat, which is also available around the clock. This is friendly, helpful and showed professional competence during our tests. The frequently asked questions on the website are unfortunately only the superficial topics that do not actually help. What did please us, however, is that the details about the payment options are already disclosed before signing up. If you still have further questions, you can use the contact form. Here one (except on Sunday) within a day a good answer is delivered. However, one should also be powerful here of the English language. Well explained and also in German, however, are the bonus conditions. The font could be a bit larger, but that’s all we have to criticize.
If you want to play for real money, you will of course want to know how to get money into your account. As you can see in our graphic, there are several options. If you are logged in you may even find additional options in your customer area.
To our delight, all deposits and withdrawals were no fees charged. Withdrawals are processed after verification of identity after 24- 48 hours. Those who have earned a higher VIP status get their money a bit faster. What is a bit sour, however, is that all withdrawals are limited to a maximum of 4,000 euros Depending on the type of withdrawal, the money is then within 2 – 5 working days with you. That’s fine, but a few modern and fast options like Pay’N Play or MuchBetter would certainly give the casino a higher ranking among mobile gamblers.
VERDICT ON MANEKI
Maneki in the sign of the Japanese lucky cat has made a good start. The design is coherent and logical. The navigation is well done on the PC as well as on the cell phone. Thanks to the filter functions, you can also find the games of the individual manufacturers with one click. With over 700 games, everyone will find their favorites. We have no concerns with the license and security. The bonus and payment options are average without standing out from the crowd. Our test has shown that Maneki is a reputable provider that has made a good start and should be kept an eye on.
