Golden Lion Casino Review

Golden Lion Casino was launched in 2016 and is operated by Blue Media N.V. It is licensed in Curacao.

Is this casino a good option?

While many players in European jurisdictions are spoilt for choice when it comes to what online casinos to play at, US players have the opposite problem. Many US-facing casinos only offer free play options, and even those which do allow players to make real money bets are often difficult to find.

Tight laws on online gambling, which see real money play banned in most US states, mean that American players are something of an overlooked commodity. As a result, when an online casino does offer real money play to US customers, it’s almost guaranteed to entice a decent number of players.

That doesn’t mean that no effort should be made by such casinos, though, a message that perhaps should’ve been passed on to Golden Lion Casino.

About as derivative as a site providing casino games can be, this Blue Media site, created in 2016, looks like it would feel fairly outdated if it had been launched 20 years ago.

An uninspired design concept and a generally predictable feel mean that Golden Lion Casino does not appear tempting at first glance. The lack of a decent gambling license is also a huge concern.

However, maybe this is a site with hidden depths. Maybe Golden Lion Casino will surprise us all and be able to stand up with the very best in an industry that is still highly competitive, even in the heavily regulated and restricted US market.

Design and theme

Golden Lion Casino attempts to bring a sense of affluence to the fore through its design concept, and it does this in the same way every single site with the same idea has in the past, by incorporating a black and gold colour scheme.

There is little beyond this to enhance on the concept either. While most online casinos with this colour scheme choice will tend to present various decadent imagery like sports cars or chandeliers, Golden Lion has a logo (which is unsurprisingly a golden lion) and some gold trim around different sections of the site, that’s about it.

There’s some generic imagery of slot machines in the background, but past that, there’s little to mention

Golden Lion does display a great deal of information on its homepage, which is helpful, and also isolates selling points the site has, such as the fact that (at the time of writing) Bitcoin can be used at Golden Lion Casino.

Making sure the strong aspects of the site are well promoted is a sensible choice, but it’s not enough to make up for the deeply lacklustre design of Golden Lion Casino.


Rules are a little different in the US when it comes to games. While European and Asian-facing online casinos will often use upwards of 10 or 20 software developers, US casinos tend to be a little more limited in their offerings, and that’s definitely true here.

It's true that not all software developers operate in the US, but enough do to offer more than titles from BetSoft, Rival, and Vivo Gaming, which is the extent of the offering that comes from Golden Lion.

Those are three top-quality software providers, and there is no arguing that, but when rival sites are offering a much greater number of games that maintain the same level of quality, Golden Lion Casino just gets left behind.

That isn’t to say there’s nothing on offer here, a decent collection of slots and a fair few table and card games too, but it just doesn’t feel like enough when it's all put together.

That is the general tone one gets from Golden Lion Casino; it does some things well, but not enough, making it an inferior choice even in the more limited US market.

Our Verdict on Golden Lion Casino

Would we recommend playing here? Absolutely not.

There are hundreds of other UK Gambling Commission or Malta Gaming Authority licensed new slot sites that have a heck of a lot more on offer.
