Playzee was added to White Hat Gaming's comprehensive online casino portfolio, which includes Spinland, Slot Planet and Dream Vegas Casinos, in 2018.
Today, it's fronted by its eccentric-looking cartoon mascot, the "mad professor" type Zeegmund, who oversees a selection of over 1,000 games overall – including slots, roulette, blackjack and live dealer titles. However, has Zeegmund concocted enough to both pique our interest and keep it?
Zeegmund makes a good first impression with his bonus offers. The deals get refreshed every day, Monday to Sunday, and you can opt to be notified of further offers once or twice weekly. It's just a pity that the wagering requirements for the welcome bonus are steep.

Free spins and points
New deals daily
Better and better bonuses as you stay loyal
An extra gift for loyalty club members every Sunday
Zeegmund has collected over a thousand games for his online casino, with many different bases – including slots, roulette, blackjack and live gaming – covered. Our own favourite games here include:
Rise of Olympus
"So far, so familiar," you're probably thinking. However, the professor has evidently scoured far corners of the online gambling world to find some more obscure – but still worthy – titles you've probably never sampled before. We particularly like the licensed games, such as:
The Goonies Jackpot King
Playboy Gold Jackpots
Who Wants to be a Millionaire Mystery Box
Deal or No Deal Megaways
We were also excited by the live casino element. At the time of writing, Playzee had 19 live tables, with a video feed of a glamorous dealer helping to replicate a more traditional casino experience.
Slots make up a huge proportion of the selection of casino games that Zeegmund has assembled, so don't be surprised if you find yourself scrolling through the list while repeatedly blurting: "What's that?" Original games do seem much more plentiful here than the licensed type.
Additionally, while the site includes a wide variety of slots games, encompassing three-reel, five-reel and jackpot variants, there aren't any easy ways to sort them by category, which is surely a missed opportunity.
You can tell that the people behind Playzee have a huge amount of enthusiasm about casino games. It's reflected in the choice of games, which includes table games like blackjack and roulette, video poker, progressive jackpots and, as we've mentioned, live casino titles.
So exhaustive is the dedication to casino games, that there's no sight of opportunities outside casino gaming; think bingo, sports betting and the like.
Playzee openly and proudly claims that it "collects all the latest casino games created by the world's most innovative software developers – including NetEnt, Microgaming, Evolution and NYX".
All of the games we tried on the site ran smoothly, reflecting the developers' prestige in casino gaming. Playzee also pledges to add "hot new releases" regularly, so the range of developers represented in the games selection could yet expand even further.
Nonetheless, one drawback to Playzee's cherry picking approach is that the games don't necessarily feel firmly integrated into the site itself. That means the clean and clinical look of the website's main interface won't necessarily follow you through to the casino tables – although Zeegmund might...
According to the site, you should "keep a lookout" for him on the live tables. Hmm...
Playzee doesn't offer a mobile app, but it arguably doesn't need one. Instead, the site itself is built to accommodate a wide range of screens – including, yes, smartphone and tablet ones.
Whatever size screen you game on, you can particularly take heart that Playzee allows players to play in "practice mode", where you can try the games without gambling any actual money. Once you've learned the ropes in this way, you can easily proceed to real-money gaming.
You automatically gain membership of the Zee Club – that's the starting block in the Zee Club Casino Programme, the site's loyalty scheme – upon placing your first deposit. As you accumulate what the casino calls "Zee Points", you can ascend further through the successive tiers.
The second stage, Master Zee, unlocks more weekly spins, while you can quicken your withdrawal times by reaching the gold-plated Doctor Zee standard. The Professor Zee level, which brings enhanced bonuses and offers, is the highest threshold possible to reach on Zee Points – as the next step up, the Zee Secret Society, is an invitation-only affair.
Playzee accepts quite a broad range of payment methods and doesn't impose fees for deposits. However, your chosen payment service itself might still do so, which is why you should be careful to check with the service provider beforehand.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum Deposit|
|Bank Transfer||£0||1 to 5 working days||£10|

The choice of withdrawal methods at Playzee is slimmer, if not significantly so, than that of payment methods. Playzee doesn't charge you for making withdrawals, either – unlike most other online casinos.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Visa Debit||£0||3 to 5 working days|
|MasterCard Debit||£0||3 to 5 working days|
|Maestro||£0||3 to 5 working days|
|Bank Transfer||£0||3 to 5 working days|

Anyone who feels a bit lost on Playzee doesn't have to look far to find their bearings again. They need only start by clicking the speech-bubble-with-question-mark symbol at the top right.
Doing so will take them to the Customer Support page – revealing that, rather unusually for an online casino, Playzee doesn't have a customer support telephone number. You can, however, still reach the support staff by email or the site's in-built "live chat" facility.

Zeegmund might look like a mad scientist, but he's thankfully mad more in the enthusiastic sense, judging from the current state of Playzee. For the most part, the bonuses are generous and the range of games even more so. Here's hoping that the head chemist of the Playzee games lab sees, in his test tubes, glimmers of an even more exciting and varied future for the site.
