We Only Accept the Best

When we rate online casinos we look for a variety of different factors to ensure that we only guide our readers to the best of the best:

Game Selection

How many games are available on the site is a big factor for us, as well as the variety that's offered.


Player safety is paramount, so we only recommend sites which are fully licensed and use the latest security protocols to protect customer data.


As many New Zealand players prefer to use phones to play, we check that sites are mobile friendly for playing on the go.


We look at welcome bonuses and also at ongoing promotions offered by gaming sites.

Customer Care

Customer support is an important factor when investigating a casino’s quality, as are the loyalty schemes for regular players.

At our team of experts only recommends those online casinos which meet the highest standards of quality, so if you see it listed on these pages you know that you will enjoy a secure and good-value gaming experience.

Warning! Sites to Avoid

Not every online casino is trustworthy, so there are features which you should always look out for before giving personal information to an online betting site:

Licence: Check the bottom of the page to see where the site is licensed and regulated. The UK, Gibraltar, Canada, Isle of Man, and Malta have the strongest regulatory bodies.

Independent Tests: Look for the logo of eCOGRA or a similar independent review body to ensure the site is fair.

Age: A site which has been in business for five or more years is likely to be trustworthy.

Reputation: Online reviews can be unreliable, but doing some general searches you should get a sense of the sites reputation in the gaming community.

Online vs Offline: Which is Best?

There aren't too many land-based casinos in New Zealand, so it may well be the case that it’s just not possible for you to visit a casino to play. Fortunately there are hundreds of online casinos which accept New Zealand players, so you don’t even need to leave the house in order to play real money casino games. Let’s take a look at some of the differences between online and offline casino gaming:

No restrictions on amount of games available
Restriction on games due to limited available floor space
Big bonuses and regular promotions
Complimentary drinks but few promotions for regular players
Loyalty schemes awarding points for playing on the site
VIP schemes only apply to big-spending players
Convenient and accessible from home and elsewhere via mobile
Depends on whether there is a casino located near to you
