Review of G'Day Casino
G'Day Casino takes a stereotypical Australian slang greeting for its moniker, and aims itself squarely at the Australian gambling market. The casino is an in-browser offering powered by White Hat Gaming software that aggregates various casino games from developers such as Net Entertainment, Quickspin, and others. As an Australian myself, I was perfectly placed to test this one out.
Australiana to the max
Most Australian-themed casinos that I have ever come across have been amusing, cliche-filled, kitsch creations put together by people who obviously don't live in Australia and probably have never even visited. I am pleased to say that G'Day Casino continues this tradition, as it treats us to a surfing kangaroo, pictures of a live casino dealer wearing an obviously photoshopped slouch hat, plus a huge croc in front of the Sydney skyline including the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Yep, the average Australian reading this is probably cringing at the thought right now, while those of you from other countries are having every Australian stereotype you have ever heard firmly reinforced, for good or bad!
The White Hat Gaming platform used by Gday Casino combines games from Net Entertainment, Quickspin, Leander Games, and a few other assorted developers into one browser-based package. Once you sign up, all the games can be played in the browser window without the need to download and install any software. As per usual for your Aussie casino skin, the casino has done a search and replace on the word "slots" and replaced it with "pokies", to ensure that you understand what they are referring to. They even have a section titled "bonzer pokies". Sigh. The games are arranged in an attractive grid formation of game logos, like you have no doubt seen at other casinos. There is a handy quick search box which you can use to whittle down the games to pick from, and you can sort and filter by various criteria.
The games are great and there are some excellent ones to choose from, including the likes of South Park Reel Chaos, Titan Storm, Elements, Supernova, and 300 Shields among others. Despite the theme, what you won't find are any games that you may be used to playing at your local pub or RSL club, as sadly Australian companies like Aristocrat do not permit Aussies to play their games online. Jackpot chasers will be pleased to see three massive Net Entertainment progressive jackpots on offer. Arabian Nights, Mega Fortune, and Hall of Gods have all been won for multi-million dollar amounts in the past and all are playable here. There are also a couple of smaller jackpots on offer for assorted Net Entertainment games.
There is also a fine collection of table games including loads of Blackjack variations, Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, and many more. There are also live dealer games of Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette, each of which is broadcast live from a dedicated studio. Video Poker players can also find games of All American, Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Wild, Joker Poker, and a bunch of other rulesets, many of which can be played either as single or multi-hand games.
Customer support and banking options
Support at G'Day Casino is provided via live chat and email and, thankfully for those of us in Australia who often find the European-centric support centres at other casinos closed all through the day, it operates 24 hours a day. I contacted them to ask about a free beer promotion they were running at the time and was connected with a support rep within seconds.
In terms of banking, the options are standard for an online casino. You can deposit money instantly using a credit card, Neteller or Skrill account, or transfer directly from your bank account. The casino allows your to deposit and play in Australian dollars, along with a few other currencies. Withdrawal requests are subject to a 48 hour holding period and, if you can resist the temptation to reverse your withdrawal, my experience has shown that you should expect to wait another day or two after that to receive your money, at least to a Neteller account. There is also a small $2500 per week withdrawal limit, although the casino says that VIP level players may request larger payments.
Crikey! It's fair dinkum like Paul Hogan on steroids. Strewth! If you think that is how an Australian speaks then this casino will be right up your alley. The reality is that this is almost the same casino as others run by the same management, such as 21Prive and Hello Casino, except with an Australian "skin" or theme. The games and the support crew are good, but the withdrawal speed and restrictions are fairly run of the mill compared to other faster paying online casinos. Ironically this casino may just appeal more to people from outside Australia who are amused by the theme, rather than locals like me.
