ABOUT THIS CASINO
PLAY OJO IN SUMMARY
A smart and sassy casino with a fun approach that helps OJO stand out from the crowd. Their commitment to ‘fair’ promotions with no wagering requirements, no max wins and guaranteed cashback is a good reason to give this Skill on Net site a play. A stacked slots catalogue, big live tables selection and slick mobile app also help them score highly.
WHO ARE PLAY OJO?
Play OJO is an original in the online casino industry. The brand originated in the UK back in 2017 but has since opened-up to players across Europe and now Canada, including Ontario. It stakes a claim to be the fairest casino you will find thanks to a promotional policy that includes no wagering requirements or win limits. The site runs on the Skill on Net platform which means access to over 2,000 games. OJO is definitely one of the modern group of sites that includes names like Casumo and Leo Vegas.

Play OJO is licensed in the European jurisdiction of Malta, as well as the UK, and now by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario as well.

Game categories are pretty intuitive – slots, jackpot slots, roulette, blackjack and scratchcards. Note that Video Poker comes under the heading of ‘card games’.

This is your first introduction to the world of OJO and their ‘fair’ promotions. Winnings are paid in cash with no limit and no wagering requirements. Your spins are worth 10c each.
INFO: Thor and the Trials of Asgard slot makes a good choice for a free spins offer. It is different to the usual Starburst or Book of Dead spins offered at many other casinos. Its is a 5×3 game with 243 paylines but expanding reels can give you up to 1,024 paylines in the bonus round. Features include Wilds, Free Spins and Multipliers and the top payout is 32,000x your stake.
MORE PLAY OJO CASINO PROMOTIONS
One of the greatest strengths of Play OJO is its rewards program. The team there work hard to ensure that you are always getting something back for your play. It is one of the reasons OJO stands apart from the competition. Here are some of the highlights:
Kickers – Daily rewards dropped into your account including extra free spins and plays on the OJO Wheel and Prize Twister.
Prize Twister – A unique game built for Play OJO that rewards you with free spins, cash prizes or $800, $3,000 and $30,000 pay outs.
OJO Wheel – Spin the wheel to be awarded a cash prize. There are three with increasingly big prizes.
Club OJO – rewards program with progressively bigger prizes as you climb the levels.
A Listers – VIP program with benefits luxury gifts, faster withdrawals and increased stake limits.
OJO Plus Cashback – On any game you play at OJO you will be rewarded cashback. The % varies from one game to another, but on average is around 0.4% to 0.6%. You can see the amounts on this page. Note that you can search by game to find the cashback on your favourites.
OJO’s cashback is really nicely done. It accumulates and can be cashed-in (transferred to your cash balance) at any time.
As far as promotional programs go, Play OJO’s is one of the best in the industry. You won’t get anything like this on a standard white label casino site. The nearest rival is probably Casumo, but even their loyalty club falls short of the level you get here. The guaranteed daily rewards are great, and whilst they are quite small on most occasions, it still feels good to get a freebie every time you log in. And of course, with all payouts in cash rather than bonus money, you feel you are getting a genuine gift rather too.
CASINO LICENSING INFORMATION

Being on the Skill on Net platform, Play OJO has a massive game selection including slots, jackpot slots, video poker, live tables and scratchcards. They are provided by more than 50 software developers. This makes OJO’s one of the best game catalogues of any casino we have reviewed.
PLAY OJO SLOTS
The video slots at Play OJO are all provided by top names in the industry, as well as some smaller studios who you may not have heard of but produce equally top-quality games. Developers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Play n Go and Playtech are all listed. So you’ll find slots like Gonzo’s Quest, Aloha! Cluster Pays and Starburst, Immortal Romance, Planet of the Apes and Game of Thrones. Also worth checking out our video slots from Quickspin, renowned for high variance titles with lots of Wilds and Free Spins. Their most popular games include Big Bad Wolf and Sticky Bandits.
If you want to try some good slots with a sense of humour then titles from both Yggdrasil and Thunderkick are there to explore. Yggdrasil’s Vikings series are particularly entertaining. Try Vikings Go Beserk or Vikings Go To Hell from some crazy antics and big potential payouts. On Thunderkick’s list are Birds on a Wire, Flame Busters and Pink Elephants, with high variance action for high risk slots fans.
And if you are a jackpot chaser then definitely take a spin on the Progressive Jackpots on the roster at Play OJO. These include MASSIVE hits like Mega Moolah, and Mega Fortune, both of which regularly pay out multi-million-dollar prizes. Next to these are many other small jackpot games, including NetEnt’s new Vegas Night Life slot.
In short, slots are central to any casino experience and OJO have the lot. We spend some time browsing the catalogue and quickly found all our favourites.
HINT: The advanced search function is particularly good for slots as you can see in this screenshot (left side under log in). Unlike other casinos that only allow you to search by game name here you can search by provider, min and max bet, volatility, theme and features!
PLAY OJO LIVE CASINO
Like most Canadian online casinos, Play OJO have taken their best live tables from Evolution Gaming which means they are of a high quality. You will find a wide selection of popular games, including Blackjack and Roulette, in various formats, and some excellent gameshow style games like Dream Catcher and Monopoly Live. You will also find a selection of live tables from Playtech and Pragmatic Play.
Here are the highlights:
Blackjack: There are 27 Blackjack tables including Unlimited Blackjack, Speed Blackjack, Blackjack Azure, European Blackjack and Quantum Blackjack.
Roulette: There are 21 Roulette games at any one time including Mega Roulette, Live Speed Roulette, Auto Roulette and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Roulette.
Baccarat: There are 9 Baccarat games including Speed Baccarat and Prestige Baccarat.
Gameshow: There is a wide range of ‘gameshow’ live dealer products. These feature a host and run like a TV gameshow. Popular titles include Dream Catcher, Crazy Time, Monopoly Live, Lightning Dice, Lightning Roulette and Side Bet City.
Here is the Live Casino menu at Play OJO:
Overall, the live casino area is impressive. The range of games, formats and stakes is competitive and live players with all budgets will find something here.
Play OJO offers most of the popular payment services used by Canadian gamblers, including the very popular Interac. However, there are some notable exceptions, including Paypal, and the mobile phone options Apple Pay and Google Pay. This may change in the future, but for now the options are limited to the most popular ones. There is also no Bitcoin or other Cryptocurrency option here.
These are your options for deposit and withdrawal, with minimum, maximum and processing times.
MAKING A DEPOSIT
There are 8 options for making a deposit at Play OJO casino.
MAKING A WITHDRAWAL
There is no minimum withdrawal at Play OJO. The finance team will process your transaction within 72 hours, though usually much quicker. For fastest access to your funds it is better to use an eWallet like Ecopayz or MuchBetter. In order to ensure your first withdrawal is processed speedily you can verify your account in advance by uploading ID documents through your account pages.
Here are the typical withdrawal times.
|Visa||$0||$10,000||Up to 5 Days|
|Mastercard||$0||$10,000||Up to 5 Days|
CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND REPUTATION
We tried the customer support functions at Play OJO to see how quick the response times were and how knowledgeable their support staff were. This is what we found.
NOTE: There is no phone support service at OJO which is something of a disappointment. However, this is not unusual and in fact it is becoming more commonplace for online casinos who prefer to speak to you on live chat which presumably is more cost-effective for them.
Live Chat: This is available 24/7. You must be logged in to use it so it doesn’t apply for new players wanting to ask questions in advance of signing up. Again, this isn’t unusual for a betting site.
Email: Unfortunately, we found email response times to be slow at Play OJO. The minimum we waited for a response was 4 hours which is quite unreasonable when you are asking questions about an account you are actively using.
The email address for OJO is [email protected].
OTHER SUPPORT OPTIONS
Play OJO have also built a solid Help zone on their website which provides a lot of information about your account, the games, promotions and safe gambling. The list of FAQs is comprehensive with a particularly fulsome set of questions on the OJO loyalty program and the cashier. If you have a question about your loyalty level or how to make a withdrawal then this makes a good starting point if you don’t want to wait to speak to a support agent first.
PLAY OJO APP REVIEW
Play OJO is also available on an app that can be downloaded to your mobile or tablet. We tested this too. Here is what we found:
- Play OJO app is available for both iPhone and Android handsets
- Average ratings in App Store is 4.5 (with 9.6k ratings)
- Download time – under 90 seconds
- Full game catalogue including slots, live dealer and OJO bingo
- You can set push notifications for promos and account information
How Does The App Measure Up?
We located and downloaded the Play OJO mobile app in under 90 seconds through the App Store on the latest iPhone over a 5G connection. You can register on the app or just log in with an existing account.
The same user experience is available on the app as you find in the website version of OJO with the same huge range of slots and live dealer tables. All the promotions and rewards work in the same way too.
The app has been designed well to respond to your screen size and the use of vertical and horizontal scrolling allows you to search through the game catalogue with ease. Games are all built in HTML5 which means that they respond to your screen size and operating system too.
Here is how the Casumo App looks once downloaded and logged-in:
Should You Consider The Play OJO App?
The advantage of the OJO app is the quick access it gives you to the games from your mobile phone – just one click from your home screen without the inconvenience of using a browser. You can also receive push notification messages directly telling you about the latest games or offers which is helpful too. Usually you would have to scan through your emails or SMS to find these.
These are advantages that suit the regular player at OJO and we still think that apps are only really for those who want to play on a daily or weekly basis. It that is you, then the app is worth a try – it’s an excellent execution with all the functionality of the main site. And of course, the 4.5/5 average rating speaks for itself in this respect.
That concludes are look at the Play OJO experience. And to sum up, here is a list of the strengths and shortcomings of this casino site.
Where does this casino excel?
- Great Value– during our research the one feature of Play OJO that stood out above all others was their focus on rewards and promotions. This brand built its reputation on fair offers and it more than lives up its promise. There are no other casinos that have removed wagering restrictions entirely and that is reason enough to play here.
- Loyalty Program – as well as offering great value Play OJO also offers many more promotions than most of their rivals. Daily Kickers, Club OJO and the Real Time Cashback are excellent regular rewards for your gameplay.
- Quality Website and App – the website and app both have a great feel to them with easy functionality and compelling design. The Advance Search function for the game menu is typical of the time and effort taken to make the user experience intuitive and easy as possible.
- Slots – the slots catalogue measures up well against any rival casino and we challenge you to think of a game that doesn’t appear at OJO. And with the daily tournaments to enjoy, this site is a real slots fans paradise.
Where does this casino fall short?
- Support Service – one of our only gripes about OJO was the slow response to our emails to the support team. This was somewhat redeemed by their swift response on live chat.
- Style Won’t Appeal to Everyone – perhaps we should finish by saying that whilst Play OJO is a fun, sassy and modern brand, that may not appeal to everyone. If you prefer more traditional betting brands that don’t trade in humour and friendly banter, you would be better off spending your money with one of the established brands like 888 Casino.
In conclusion, for casino players in Canada Play OJO represents an exciting online experience. And it’s not just the game and betting opportunities that makes OJO a good choice. This operator’s reputation for top quality service is well-deserved and the easy, secure experience of registration, depositing and betting makes it a safe and enjoyable environment in which to gamble. We highly recommend you find out for yourself.
