A Closer Look at King Billy
We’re definitely digging this whole medieval, king-themed online casino, but is it a place worth betting? King Billy came about in 2017 and has won different awards since then, like Best New Casino, Best Casino (3rd), and Player’s Choice (2nd). More importantly, they won the AskGamblers Best Casino award in 2019. You don’t exactly get awards from AskGamblers without having some sort of good standing with the online gambling community.
It should be said that King Billy doesn’t have a sportsbook, so if you’re looking for a site with sports matches to bet on, keep looking. There are definitely some good sites out there for sports betting, like 888sport or 1xBet, but this isn’t one of them. They do, however, have decent slots and table games, along with some interesting promotional bonuses and a fresh VIP program.
If you’re worried about safety and security, they do have a fully verifiable license from the Malta Gaming Authority. An MGA license is a great one to have and shows that they take fairness and safety seriously, but we’ll get more into that later. For now, let’s take a careful review of King Billy and see what made them deserve those Best Casino awards.
As we mentioned earlier, there’s no sportsbook or eSports betting to be found at King Billy, so you’ll have to look elsewhere if that’s your preferred method of betting. However, if you like virtual slots, tables, and live dealers, you’re bound to have fun at King Billy. With twenty-four different software providers and hundreds upon hundreds of games, there’s definitely something here for you. Here’s a quick breakdown of each section of King Billy’s casino.
You can easily sort King Billy’s online slots by game provider if you only want to play games from a particular company, or you can browse through their large selection of games. The other benefit of playing at King Billy is that almost all of the games have demo versions. Play for free with thousands of credits, and try out each slot before you actually spend money on them. Just click the “Demo” button when you hover over a slot instead of clicking “Play Now.”
We tested a bunch, and our favorites were Gold Mine Stacks 2 and Age of the Gods: King of Olympus. These games both have fun multipliers and minigames built in, especially Gold Mine Stacks 2. Be careful not to gamble your extra lives in that game, or you won’t even be able to head into the mine to find jackpots.
There’s a small subsection of slots at King Billy that feature large jackpots or huge progressives. If you only play slots for a shot at the big win, these should be your go-tos. They’re adding new ones all the time, and some slots have prizes worth millions of Ringgit. We took a shot at MAgic Spins and Sleighin’ It, but unfortunately, couldn’t hit that mega jackpot.
Some people like virtual tables over live casino tables. They let you control the pace of the table and allow you to bet more quicker than live tables. They also can have fun designs and entertaining mechanics that a live casino table just won’t be able to provide. If you’ve constantly played live tables, you might want to give virtual tables a try. There are other games available, like Plink, Minesweeper, and more, so don’t just think it’s all online blackjack and roulette.
Live Casino games are definitely what's hot right now, thanks to people showing big wins on TikTok and other social media sites. There’s even a whole streamer subsection where high-rollers play huge hands of blackjack. If you’re looking for the atmosphere of a physical casino in your own home, live tables are the way to go.
King Billy has a ton of different live tables spread across games like live roulette, blackjack, game shows, baccarat, fan tan, poker, and more. We suggest heading into the Evolution Gaming lobby and browsing the live tables there rather than using the King Billy site itself. The games are definitely laid out better and are easier to browse in this format.
We had fun with Crazy Time, an interactive game show with a talkative host and big prizes— if you can win them. We also enjoyed playing at the classic blackjack tables and roulette tables. They have a ton of different tables with different bet sizes, so there’s definitely something to pique your interest here.
Bonuses and Promotions
There were five ongoing bonuses and promotions at King Billy, which included their decent welcome pack for new players. King Billy also has an interesting VIP program loyal players can take advantage of. Here’s a quick summary of the available bonuses and their VIP program.
|Deposit #||Welcome Bonuses|

As we said earlier, we’re definitely enjoying the medieval king theme at King Billy, and their VIP program continues that theme. Rise through the ranks of the nobility until you’re a king yourself, getting 15% cashback, among other great bonuses. Higher ranks come with VIP managers and exclusive offers tailored to your gaming experience.
You can progress through the VIP tiers by betting 235 MYR or more on slots and 1150 MYR at the Live Casino, table games, and video poker. You will not accumulate points for “safe bets” like red or black on roulette. You’ll also earn points by depositing 235 MYR or more.
Qualifying bets will reward you with King’s Coins, which can be exchanged for real currency at varying rates depending on your VIP level at King Billy. Every month, Citizens, Barons, Marquees, Counts, and Dukes can only redeem about 4,000 MYR worth of King’s Coins, while Princes and Kings can redeem 20,000 MYR. Coins that haven’t been redeemed in three months will be taken away, so be sure to use them.
This isn’t the most extensive VIP program we’ve ever seen, but it’s definitely a nice bonus to have. We will say that the royal score requirements seem hard to meet unless you’re a high roller. We would’ve liked to see lower betting and deposit requirements to make it easier to rise through the different tiers.
|VIP Level||Royal Score Required||Exchange Rate Per 100 King’s Coins||Gifts||Weekly Cashback||VIP Manager||Exclusive Offers|
|Baron/Baroness||400-4,999||14 MYR||200 Free Spins||5%||No||No|
|Count/Countess||5,000-12,999||23.5 MYR||235 MYR + 150 Free Spins||7%||Yes||Yes|
|Marquess/Marchioness||13,000-24,999||28 MYR||470 MYR + 150 Free Spins||9%||Yes||Yes|
|Duke/Duchess||25,000-39,999||33 MYR||940 MYR + 200 Free Spins||11%||Yes||Yes|
|Prince/Princess||40,000+ & 188,500 MYR in Deposits||37.5 MYR||1410 MYR + 300 Free Spins||13%||Yes||Yes|
|King/Queen||Invite Only||47 MYR||2350 MYR + 500 Free Spins||15%||Yes||Yes|
Deposits & Withdrawals
The only deposit and withdrawal methods available to us in Malaysia were debit cards and two eWallets. This is pretty disappointing since there are other alternatives like cash vouchers, more eWallets, bank transfers, and crypto. You’ll have to withdraw your funds using the same method you used to deposit them, so choose wisely. Everything is processed instantly, but there are minimums and maximums you’ll have to be aware of before depositing or withdrawing funds.
|Payment Method||Options Available||Min/Max (MYR)||Processing Time|
|Debit Card||Visa, MasterCard||165/19,700||Instantly|
We’ll be upfront and say that we are heavily disappointed with the customer support options available at King Billy. While almost every site has 24/7 Live Chat, they have forgone it in favor of email and social media. You can contact them on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, but you’re more than likely going to have to email them to get ahold of someone.
The HELP tab on the right side of the screen lists their customer support options along with some quick links to common FAQs. We thought this was their Live Chat at first, but as we said, they don’t have one. Hopefully, they add one in the future, as a Live Chat is a basic necessity for any online casino these days.
Licensing and Security
While their customer service is a bit of a downer, their licensing and security definitely helps bring that category back up. They have a verifiable license from the Malta Gaming Authority. You can see for yourself by clicking the certificate at the bottom of their site, but to truly verify any certificate, you should head over to the licensing authority.
You can use the legitimate MGA site to authenticate it here. Either search up the company that operates King Billy, N1 Interactive Ltd, or use the URL. If you don’t already know, the Malta Gaming Authority licenses and regulates a lot of the trusted online casinos and is definitely considered a “gold standard” when it comes to licenses. You can rest at ease knowing they’re licensed by the MGA.
How to Make an Account at King Billy
As always, you have to be 18 years or older to bet at King Billy, and you must reside in a country where online gambling is legal and accepted by King Billy. Check the list of countries at the top if you’re unsure. Malaysia and other South East Asian countries are welcome to play at King Billy. To make an account, just click the “Create Account” button at the top of the screen and enter the following information:
- Valid email address
- Preferred currency (MYR is not available)
- Country of residence
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Valid mobile phone number
How to Download King Billy Mobile Apps
There is no app for iOS, so iPhone and iPad users are out of luck. There is an app for Android users, however. You can easily download it by heading to the site on your mobile device and clicking the “Download” button that pops up at the top of the home screen. This doesn’t seem to be a separate app but instead loads the site from a shortcut on your phone. We couldn’t tell any difference between connecting via the app and connecting via our web browser on our device.
After our in-depth review, we can’t help but be slightly disappointed with what, on the surface, looks like a great casino. The fact that there is no 24/7 Live Chat and limited deposit and withdrawal options for Malaysian players is definitely a bummer. No sportsbook, fishing games, or online lotteries also knocks this site down a few points in our review. The VIP program is nice, but it seems hard to progress through unless you're betting thousands on their site.
That said, they do have a fully verifiable license from the Malta Gaming Authority, which is huge. A lot of online casinos feature licenses that aren’t verifiable or just straight up don’t even mention it. You at least know your money is safe, and the games are fair at King Billy. They also have a decent selection of slots, virtual tables, and live casino games if that’s your thing.In the end, we suggest taking advantage of their welcome bonus but not trying to make them the one and only casino you play at.
