An Interview With The Wizards Behind PlayOjo
October 23, 2018
Since launching in 2017, PlayOjo has taken the online casino world by storm and has disrupted the market no end with their wager-free bonuses and cash-back offers.
Advertising on TV and offering a startlingly-beautiful website, Ojo doesn’t claim to have the best casino online, though there’s every chance that it is. In 2017 they won the ‘Rising Star Award’ at the EGR Awards and this year they have been nominated for Casino Operator of the Year.
Offering transparency, no backhanded bonuses, no small print, no wager requirements, all the best games, and cashback on every single bet you make; Ojo has it all.
They also have loads more too. That’s why we sat down with PlayOjo at their headquarters to find what exactly they present for their players (and we also have a full PlayOjo casino review for you to look through too)…
– What does PlayOJO do to stand out from the competition?
First of all Ojo stands out offering a unique product, and a unique casino with no wagering on bonuses, no T&C’s, and no bullshit. Everything is transparent, and for the first time, a casino has come up with a unique concept whose sole focus is being fair with the players.
– You say you offer money back on every bet. How does that work exactly?
So whatever game you play, every time you bet, Ojo will put money into the players account, and the amount you can win is unlimited. How much you actually receieve depends on what game you’re playing. Most of our games like the popular Rainbow Riches, Game of Thrones and Book of Dead offer 0.6% cash back while the likes of Starburst, Mega Moolah and Gonzo’s Quest offer 0.4%.
And there’s no strings attached, no hidden conditions – just free cash!
– We know you don’t have any wager requirements when you want to withdraw the winnings made from your bonuses, but do you think that the UK Gambling Commission need to do something to curb the unreasonable wagering requirements found elsewhere?
Actually, the UK Gambling Commision has already discussed this issue several times regarding the wager requirements that some of the casinos are imposing on the players and they are planning on being much harsher on those casinos who are making the wager requirements impossible to get. In October 2017 the Gambling Commission said they will research the issue in full, and it’ll be really interesting to see what their findings show when they are released.
I’m glad Ojo aren’t being affected by this, but I’m also glad the UK Gambling Commission are doing more to favour the players.
– What do you do to make sure players bet responsibly on Ojo?
We have quite a few pages on our site about betting responsibility. We also have a lot of social campaigns in place regarding this issue where we promote responsible gameplay and playing responsibly. That’s the Ojo message. And it’s very easy to self-exclude yourself from our casino too. We do everything we can to help players bet responsibily and we’re always looking at other ways to help those who are struggling.
– Is there anything exciting we should look out for from Ojo in the coming months?
We continually create really exciting and attractive competitions for our players. In the summer we had a competition where four of our players could win a Mini Cooper car, and we’re looking to do that in the very near future again too. We also recently gave away free VIP tickets to Anthony Joshua’s latest fight at Wembley stadium and £10,000 holiday too. We do these kind of promotions all the time to keep our players happy.
But also something we’re really excited about is our new and improved Play Ojo app which now includes a personalised “My Ojo” section where you can see a stream of your recent activity, your Ojo page showing your OJO level, and also the rewards that are waiting for you. There’s also loads more too, it really is great, even if we do say so ourself.
