Toals is probably the oldest betting shops in the UK. Established in 1932 as a family business in Ballymena, County Antrim, the Toals family had the goal of setting up betting shops all across Ireland and the UK. Currently, they run the largest betting shop in the UK out of their Belfast storefront. They have a rock solid tradition for their brick and mortar shops, which they are determined to keep going along with their online presence.
After logging in, all Toals Casino members will be able to enjoy gaming on the go on their compatible smartphones or tablet devices. The mobile casino will allow all users to play their favorite titles regardless of where they are.
In 2016 Toals decided to launch the online betting shop that bears their name. It is only available for punters who live in or are traveling through the UK. They are not available to the general population or Europe. That said they will accept euros as well as. We guess that’s so if someone from France is on holiday in the UK they can bet with Toals. As it is not offered in the rest of the world the site is only available in English.
Toals is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. They have great odds and you can play their mobile site very easily. The graphics are fine but nothing special.
Knowing how to be friendly is the key to the Toals brand image. As such they have made a site that is very easy to scroll through. Their fonts are larger than most online gambling casinos – which may mean they are looking to bring in an older clientele. One odd thing though – their app is only available for iOS. There is no Android version. As most casinos have both iOS and Android options we find this a very strange mistake. Hopefully in the future they will change this and bring out an Android version.
Toals also does not support live streaming of the matches you can bet on. We know this technology is cutting edge but other online sports betting operations have been able to provide it. We find it odd that Toals has not done the same thing. That said you can see live stats of all matches and they do the best they can to immerse you in the game without actually live streaming it. We feel that they do a good enough job at bringing up the stats that for most gamblers it will be enough even without the live streaming. That said we would like to see Toals make live streaming an option in the future.
Toals has a strong connection with the Irish Football Association. They do their best to support Irish football. They are a strong supporter of the Crusaders Football Club.
Toals doesn’t have a great welcome bonus. No matching funds are provided. Instead, they give you free spins. As for casino promotions, there really aren’t any great ones. Almost all of their offers are tied to their sportsbook, which is fine if you like betting on sports, but isn’t great if you like spinning slots or playing blackjack.
Toals offers various seasonal promotions. They are generally tied to whatever the biggest games are of that time of year. They really don’t have much in the way of casino offers. Nearly all of their promotions are tied to their sports book. For Toals which for most of its existence has been built for sports betting this makes sense. That said if you are looking for great casino promotions you’ll find them at other casinos.
The Toals current Welcome Offer is based on getting free spins. What the offer is that for every £20 you bet at their casino you get 10 free spins. This goes up to a total of 100 free spins. You have to use your Toals free spins on Scudamore’s Super Stakes, Jumanji, Hansel and Gretel, Mirror Mirror; Starburst or The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays.
Each free spin will have a staking value of £.10. There is no maximum amount you can win. And the money goes straight into your cash account. That’s much better than other casinos that require you to bet your winnings between 20 and 100 times before you can claim them as cash.
That said while you do get the free spins you don’t get any matching cash from Toals. They are honestly the only casino we’ve seen that doesn’t offer matching cash. That said they may not want to compete too much against their own Toals brick and mortar shops.
Free spins are where it’s at with Toals. As noted above, you get 10 free spins with every £20 you bet at Toals up to a maximum of 100 free spins. There is no limit to what you can win with your free spins so this is a pretty decent deal.
Toals has a ton of casino and slot machine games on offer. What we like about them is not only the variety but also the fact that on any of their games you can play them for free before you place a bet. That way you can be sure that it is a game you really want to be playing. More and more casinos are doing this and we think it’s a great movement for the industry. People are happier when they know what they are really betting on. Toals giving people that free to play option is a really nice thing. Of course you don’t have this option with the Live Casino but no casino operator has brought that in yet, which makes sense as you obviously have to pay the dealer to handle the bets.
Most of the slots provided by Toals are from NetEnt and Microgaming. That’s not a bad thing. They are currently adding more games from other providers which are expanding their offerings. All of the most recent NetEnt and Microgaming slots are represented including the all time favorite Starburst video slot machine.
Table games are also well represented at Toals. They have blackjack, roulette, baccarat in a ton of different versions. From multi handed blackjack to American roulette if there is a table game you like you are likely to find it at Toals.
Then there is the live casino. It makes you feel just like you are playing in London or Vegas. You can play Hold ‘Em, Roulette or Blackjack. You can talk to the dealers and other players. It really makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the game.
Toals doesn’t really do payment options. You can’t use PayPal. You can’t use Neteller. You can’t use any e-wallets. They won’t even let you send them money via direct wire transfer. Instead you have to use your Visa or MasterCard. We feel that this is a thing that links the casino to their long time brick and mortar businesses. They want the cash quickly and easily and credit and debit cards are the way to make that happen.
That said when it comes to withdrawals Toals is the absolute best. You can withdrawal a total of £400,000 a month. That is leaps and bounds better than 95% of other casinos out there. If you get a big win you can access your money very easily. Heck if you won a million on a progressive jackpot you’d have the money in two and a half months. That’s real integrity coming from Toals.
Obviously when it comes to withdrawals you are also limited to getting the money put back on your Visa or MasterCard.
Toals is a top rate very conservative online casino. Their background is in sports betting and they do that very well. They are still refining their online casino but what we’ve seen so far looks great.
Their large withdrawal amounts are something every other casino should be looking into. And their selection of games is top notch.
All in all, we give Toals a 9 out of 10 star rating. If they added a matching cash welcome bonus they’d get a full 10 stars.
