All SSC Entertainment N.V. Casinos 2024

SSC Entertainment NV Sister Sites

Players from the UK can register and play at casino sites owned and operated by SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos, but that doesn’t mean that they should. These casinos are owned by a company based in Curacao and claim to be licensed by authorities there, but offering casino services to customers in the UK would be a breach of any such licence. We can’t find any evidence that the SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos hold licences in Curacao or anything else, so we suspect that they’re unlicensed. That’s a good reason to stay away from them, so we present the information on this page for information purposes only.

Players in the UK are only protected when they play at casinos covered by a UK Gambling Commission licence. SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos are not covered by this licence. 

Cocoa Casino

Cocoa Casino logo

The motto of Cocoa Casino is “play the sweetest slots online.” It’s a catchy slogan, but reviews of this casino – and of SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos in general – suggest that “sweet” isn’t the first word that would come to mind when players are asked to sum up their feelings. We won’t repeat this point when discussing every single one of the casinos on this network, but we believe that Cocoa Casino and all of its sister sites operate without a licence. A couple of the SSC Entertainment casinos claim to be licensed by Antillephone N.V. in Curacao, but the link back to the regulator’s website is broken, so there’s no way of verifying the claim. Licensed casinos in Curacao are required to block access to players in the UK, so we’re understandably dubious. For those who are brave (or foolish) enough to play at Cocoa Casino, it’s a retro-style slots-focused site with blocky graphics and a portfolio made up almost entirely of games by Rival. Some of the slots are obvious copies of games made by more popular providers. Mystic Wolf, for example, barely even disguises its resemblance to Pragmatic Play’s Wolf Gold. There’s a small live table games section to complement the meagre range of slots at Cocoa Casino, but it likely wouldn’t be enough to entice people to play here even if it weren’t for the licence problem.

Da Vincis Gold

Da Vincis Gold logo

The name of Leonardo da Vinci comes up a lot more often in the world of online casinos than you’d expect it to. Slots inspired by Da Vinci or featuring Da Vinci’s works – Da Vinci’s Diamonds, for example – are among the most popular at some of the world’s biggest casino sites. We have no idea what Leonardo da Vinci himself would have made of the trend, but he was a man who always had one eye on the future, so we hope he would have approved. Whether he would have approved of SSC Entertainment N.V’s Da Vinci’s Gold Casino is another matter. Perhaps he’d have appreciated the offer of five free spins for all members every day of the year, or maybe he’d have been an early adopter of cryptocurrency so he could make use of the 300% matched deposit for crypto users. Rival’s slots and casino games are joined by contributions from Saucify, Tom Horn Gaming, BetSoft and a few others at Da Vinci’s Gold, which makes the site look like a better all-round casino than Cocoa Casino. You still have to download software to make the most of what the casino has to offer, though – and the same issue with licensing still applies.

Pantasia Casino

Pantasia Casino logo

Pantasia Casino is the only one of the SSC Entertainment N.V. casino sites to go as far as directly naming SSC Entertainment as its owner, so this is presumably the site that the casino network company is most proud of. The name “Pantasia” is clearly a take on Disney’s “Fantasia,” which explains why the mascot of this vividly purple website is a wizard. Pantasia Casino comes with the slogan “dream big, win bigger” and promises instant access to all of its games without the need for a software download. In that respect, it’s a far more modern casino than the other sites on the network. That’s because it’s also the newest. Pantasia went live in 2021, by which time SSC Entertainment N.V. was an industry veteran and ought to have learned a few things about putting competent casino websites together. Even with all that said, though, it offers far fewer games than any of its sister sites. Rival is the only game provider at Pantasia Casino, and you can’t see any of its games at all until after you’ve completed the sign-up process. We’re not sure why a casino site would hide its wares in such a manner, but having just one provider after working with several more in the past feels like a backwards step for SSC Entertainment.

This Is Vegas

This Is Vegas logo

Can you even call yourself a casino network company if you don’t have at least one casino using the Vegas theme? The answer to that question is probably “no.” Every casino network company seems to do it at least once, and this is SSC Entertainment N.V’s effort. This Is Vegas promises “the real Vegas experience,” but then again, so does every other Las Vegas-themed online casino on the internet. The site doesn’t offer free drink refills or sandwiches, so there are limits on what the “real” Vegas experience entails here. What players get instead is a site covered in gaudy neon lighting and a promise of up to 999 free spins as a welcome bonus. Non-delivery of welcome promotions is another of the common complaints we’ve heard about casinos on this network, so take any offers listed on them with a pinch of salt. The range of games on offer is a little more expansive at This Is Vegas, with contributions from Spinomenal to go with the providers we’ve already seen at other sites on the range. Even with those extra games, though, the total number available at This Is Vegas is barely clear of 300.

Paradise 8

Paradise 8 logo

We have no idea what happened to the first seven paradises, but this casino from SSC Entertainment N.V. finds us at Paradise8. It’s the most non-descript of all the SSC Entertainment casinos, with little in the way of theming. In fact, Paradise8 has so little character of its own that the wizard from Pantasia makes a reappearance here to show off some of the promotions. Even the promotions are borrowed from other sites on the network, including the standing offer of five free spins every day as a “thank you” for logging in. First deposits are supposed to attract a guaranteed 888 free spins, but potential players should be aware that bonus winnings are “sticky.” They’re almost impossible to withdraw because of high wagering requirements, and bonus funds are forfeit whenever a player makes their first withdrawal. That’s yet another example of the unfriendly terms offered at SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos and another common cause of complaints. Paradise8 is effectively a clone of This Is Vegas without the Las Vegas theme, which leaves it looking second-rate by comparison.

About SSC Entertainment N.V.

SSC Entertainment N.V. is not a newcomer to the online casino industry. The first incarnation of the company was founded in Curacao in 2007, although it’s been through several changes since then. We know that it’s gone by several other names in the past, but it’s been SSC Entertainment N.V. since 2012. The frequent name changes might have been attempts to shake off the bad reputation that the company seems to develop every few years, but at this stage, the company seems content for people to write bad reviews about SSC Entertainment N.V. casinos online without doing anything about it. Make no mistake, though, people do write those reviews – and there are lots of them. Complaints about this casino network company are so rife that a lot of other reputable casino review sites have blacklisted them. Ask Gamblers has officially broken ties with them, which is a step that the website takes very rarely.

As is almost always the case with casino network companies that set up shop in Curacao, we know next to nothing about the internal workings of SSC Entertainment N.V. The company doesn’t have a business website and doesn’t publish accounts. This fundamental lack of scrutiny is – along with tax obligations – one of the biggest reasons why casino network companies base themselves in Curacao. Without any other source to turn to, we’ve looked at the Dun & Bradstreet estimates of the company’s size and profitability. Dun & Bradstreet believes that SSC Entertainment N.V. employs fewer than ten people and made around £50,000 in revenue last year. We find that hard to believe, as if that were the case, the company would surely be forced to stop trading. We don’t know how Dun & Bradstreet arrived at those figures, but we suspect that they were just as much in the dark about SSC Entertainment N.V. as the rest of us.

Two words beginning with “C” spring to mind when we think about SSC Entertainment N.V.; controversy and complaints. You’ll often find those words associated with Curacao casinos, so perhaps we should think of them as three Cs instead. The complaints issue is one that we’ve already touched on – you’ll find complaints about the casinos on this network everywhere you look online, and we suspect that not everybody who wrote a bad review about the company’s casinos did so because they’re sore losers. “Controversy” comes from the company’s stance on licencing. It’s inconsistent about naming itself from site to site, and it’s just as inconsistent about claiming to have a licence. Some of the casinos on the SSC Entertainment N.V. network feature the name and logo of Antillephone N.V., which is the largest of the iGaming regulators in Curacao. However, Antillephone N.V. doesn’t list any of the SSC Entertainment casinos as being licensed. The merits of the Antillephone N.V. licence are minimal at the best of times as the regulator is notoriously lax about policing the companies it grants licences to, but SSC Entertainment has either allowed its licence to lapse and failed to update its casino sites, or it never had a licence at all. If it doesn’t have a licence, it would explain its current business model.

The laws of the UK make it clear that companies can only permit UK citizens to gamble if they hold a licence with the UK Gambling Commission. The laws of the United States make it illegal – with a handful of tiny exceptions – to offer online gambling services of any kind to any citizen, regardless of location. Despite those facts, SSC Entertainment N.V.’s casinos accept players and bets from both countries. That’s the mark of a rogue operation, and it adds to the increasing number of red flags planted around this casino network company’s name.

We suspect that we’ve said enough to make out feelings about SSC Entertainment N.V. clear, but we appreciate that you might be reading this paragraph after skimming through all of the information above. If so, we’ll make it clear one last time. Players in the UK should not play at casinos operated by SSC Entertainment N.V. under any circumstances. The conduct of the company when it comes to handling customer withdrawals and complaints suggests that it can’t be trusted, and the casinos aren’t covered by any known licences. That leaves players with nowhere to turn when things go wrong.
