About ShowLion

What can we tell you about ShowLion? Well, it’s an online casino. Yes, indeed, just that. It doesn’t currently offer sportsbetting. But the reason we feature it is because it’s exclusively available to players from India. That’s a rare enough thing and we wanted to take a look at it for you.

ShowLion is actually operated by a group of companies, which includes Blue Media N.V. Casinos, a company at home in Cyprus. They are licensed through Curacao and have only been around for a few years now. Thus, they don’t have much of a reputation yet, but we’ve tried our best to give you an overview of their products and services and whether we can recommend them for you.

Is ShowLion trustworthy?

That’s always the question with any online casino or bookmaker. Usually, we have more established operations to look at and more reviews elsewhere. But since ShowLion is still so new, we don’t have much to go on just yet.

The overall impression we have is positive. We certainly couldn’t find any major (or even minor) complaints about ShowLion anywhere.

Our biggest gripe is the fact that the casino only showcases a license from Curacao. Since they offer their services only to customer from India at this time and there’s no such thing as an Indian online gambling license right now, Curacao is probably the best you can get in terms of an international license. But they are not good when it comes to offer mediation services for players who have issues with one of their licensees.

As such, we have no idea where you will get help in case you encounter any problems with ShowLion. We have nothing we can hold against the casino at this time, but we do recommend you read all terms and conditions carefully, contact customer service if you have any open question before signing up and, most importantly, you should only deposit a small amount of money first, play a little and then try out their withdrawal to get a better impression of how things are going.

Bonuses and promotions

Of course, ShowLion has a welcome bonus for new customers. You can claim a 100% match bonus and up to INR 10,000.

Upon signing up, you can also claim a no-deposit bonus of INR 500, which you need to use bonus code ‘b500b’ for once you have created your account.

The minimum deposit required to receive the welcome bonus is INR 100. If you wish to withdraw the bonus or any winnings from it, you will have to complete wagering requirements of 100x the bonus amount.

The terms and conditions are not very helpful as they only mention Euro amounts and not INR. We don’t know how much time you have to meet the wagering requirements or which games contribute or how much they contribute. Before claiming this bonus, you should therefore contact customer service to get all the details send to you via email.

Since the bonus terms or so steep, you may even wish to opt-out of the welcome bonus.

Beyond the welcome bonus, ShowLion appears to run regular promotions, usually for a limited amount of time. Right now, customers can win a share of 250 gr of gold and free spins as a consolation prize. The bonus terms for these campaigns are extensive, so once more you’re best served by reading them carefully.

Games and products

Usually, we’d be telling you about the available odds in this place, but since we’re not reviewing a bookmaker for you, we’ll be telling you about the games you can play here.

You’ll find plenty of slots here from providers such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Push Gaming, Betsoft, Playson, Genesis, Habanero, Pragmatic Play or Rival.

You get some of the best and the newest slots currently available here, though a few awesome providers are missing at this time.

Especially impressive is their collection of video poker. It’s probably one of the biggest we have ever come across and that is saying something. ShowLion currently hosts just over 100 video poker games, which should satisfy any fan.

You can also choose more than two dozen scratch cards here and the table games section also offers several dozen options, including roulette, baccarat, blackjack, casino poker and even two craps games.

The live casino isn’t huge, but you get what you need here. Most games are supplied by NetEnt and Ezugi and you get a good variety of tables.

At this time, however, there are hardly any jackpot games available, which is a pity.

Without creating an account and visiting the cashier, you’ll have a hard time figuring out what deposit methods are available, whether fees apply, how to make withdrawals and if there are any limits.

Thanks to the provider logos at the bottom of each page, we do know that you can deposit and withdraw using Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and moneta.ru. Those appear to be the only options, which is not a lot and very limiting for some players from India.

Unfortunately, there’s no separate page for banking information, so we had to gather bits and pieces from around the website. According to the terms and conditions, the minimum withdrawal amount is €10 (or the currency equivalent) and withdrawal requests are processed within 72 hours as long as the cumulative amount requested for withdrawal doesn’t exceed €1,000 (or the currency equivalent). Limits beyond that are not mentioned anywhere, but if you do plan on making a larger withdrawal, be sure to contact customer service first. And remember that you will have to go through a verification process, which may require you to supply notarised documents. So, get started on that early.

Customer service

Customer service can be contacted via live chat, WhatsApp, email or a contact form via the website. The customer service team is not overly experienced, and we don’t know whether they are available around the clock. But as far as we can tell, they are trying their best.

Since there is no comprehensive FAQ page that will supply you with useful information in advance, you’ll be scouring the page for information in other areas. Even then, you may not find what you’re looking for so be prepared to contact the customer service team directly.

Software

ShowLion opts for a fairly classic design. The website is modern, but it is recognisably an online casino. The menu leads you to all the important areas, including the casino, live casino, slots, table games, promotions, leaderboard, and the contact page. Interestingly, the casino also runs a news section and a blog, where you can learn more about ShowLion, promotions or gambling.

Mostly, the background on this page is black, highlights are golden yellow. Most games can be played in demo mode, so you can acquaint yourself with them, which is always handy.

And, of course, the page is accessible via mobile as well. The page loads quickly and runs smoothly, which is all you can ask. You can play plenty of games here, including live games and have almost full use of the casino.

Conclusion and final thoughts

ShowLion does a decent job for a new online casino that has only been around for a short time. The customer reviews we could find were mostly positive, which is promising. The casino is far from standing the test of time, though, and we’ll have to keep an eye on how it continues.

That said, it is one of the very few exclusive online casinos aimed at Indian customers and if they can please their audience, the casino should do well. Like we already suggested, tread carefully in the beginning. Make small deposits, only claim the welcome bonus if you don’t plan on withdrawing the bonus or winnings from it and get your ID verified before requesting your first withdrawal.

ShowLion has potential and should be a good option for customers from India.
