Find the best New Zealand online casino reviews on Bojoko

When you read about a new casino, it can be hard to trust them sometimes. A casino will always go on about their best features and never mention their weaknesses. Here on Bojoko, we will tell you everything.

Our casino listings are created by us in conjuction with the casinos. We will list all the features, including bonuses, deposit methods, customer support and so on. Then our experts test the casinos. They see how the casino works in real life from the first deposit to an actual withdrawal, and then tell you about their experience. Then our community members can join in and write about their experiences and rate the casino as well.

We have trustworthy reviews where you can find out how things really are.

Here, you'll learn all about our casino review process, how we rate sites and how you can join in.

Why read casino reviews on Bojoko?

Bojoko casino reviews give you an accurate, balanced and detailed idea of what you can expect at the casino. The reviews consist of 3 main elements:

Below, we'll explain these in more detail.

Casino listings

Bojoko is the Airbnb of online casinos: we provide a platform and casinos create their own listings. We want to let the casinos speak directly to you, the player. In addition, casinos can add their own casino offers.

Every listing contains tons of information about the casino. We ask online casinos to provide very nitpicky details about their bonuses, game selection, customer support, KYC process, deposits and withdrawals.

To be frank, completing the listing is a daunting task. The bonus section alone has 31 separate questions to answer and boxes to fill. However, we want our casino partners to provide you with exceptional value.

The best part is, most of this data is quantitative: you can use our casino selection tool to filter and sort casinos based on your preferences. We have a long list of ready-made quick filters, but building your own is easy as pie. Give it a try!

User reviews

The active community on Bojoko helps bring transparency to the casino reviews. Register on Bojoko and share your comments and ratings. You can read more about the rating guidelines below.

Expert reviews

We wanted to show you what it's really like to play on a particular casino site. Our aim was to give you more details than the one-paragraph user reviews, in the brutally honest tone 100% independent from the casinos.

We asked experienced players and casino professionals to try the casinos with real money and share their thoughts without pulling any punches. They sign up, deposit, play with real money and see how the withdrawals work.

It is important that we test these things, especially verify the withdrawal process. We want to be sure that what the casino says is actually true and as a player, you are not in for a surprise.

If you're into slots, there are now slot expert reviews to give you an honest account of the most popular games.

What you should consider when rating online casinos

New Zealand Casino Reviews

Playing at an online casino is largely a subjective experience. So why bother creating a framework for the ratings?

The idea is to make the reviews and ratings comparable. If you give the casino 1/5 rating for every aspect just because you didn't win doesn't really provide valuable info to your fellow players.

Below, you'll find our criteria for online casino ratings and reviews. They are based on common casino industry practices and work as a guideline for both users and casino experts.


Casino bonuses are what most players probably first look at when they read online casino reviews and compare casinos. All casino bonuses come with their own terms and conditions. Pay attention to the bonus rules and wagering requirements as well as the bonus sums and percentages.

No deposit bonuses generally come in the form of free spins to be played in video slots. Deposit bonuses are usually a deposit match bonus peppered with some spins.

Here's a guide to help you out when rating a casino's bonuses:

Free spins or casino money with no deposit, attractive first deposit bonus (at least 100%/NZ$100) with moderate wagering requirements (max 45x) and player-friendly bonus terms and conditions.
One or more of the above elements are missing, the wagering requirements may be too high (50x or higher).
Average bonus value with acceptable terms and conditions (for example 100%/NZ$100 deposit bonus with a 50x [25x D+B] wagering requirement and no sign-up bonus).
Low bonus value with passable wagering requirements and terms and conditions (for example 50%/NZ$100 with a wagering requirement of 50x or higher).
No bonuses offered at all.

Appearance and usability

A nice-looking and well-functioning casino is essential for a positive and pleasant experience. The online casino software reviews should also talk about the site's functionality and looks.

Many new casinos are cropping up and competing in today's market. Players are demanding better usability in an online casino. You'll also be greatly swayed by the user experience when making a casino software review. Usability might be a subjective element of the casino experience, but the players know what works and what doesn't.

Here's a guide to help you rate a casino's appearance and usability:

Every element works and runs smoothly and the casino's design and user interface are pleasant to look at and use.
The functionality of the site is slightly impaired or the design is not fully convincing.
Use of the site is not easy or the graphics are not convincing.
Significant number of technical and aesthetic issues with the site.
Very poor usability that makes decisive gameplay highly difficult.

Game selection

A high-quality, diverse gaming selection helps attract players. Most casinos offer hundreds of online pokies plus a tidy selection of table games at the live casino. The average number of casino games offered by online casinos is currently around 500. However, some sites go the extra mile and try to get their hands on anything released by all game suppliers.

Use this guide when rating a casino's game selection:

Large number of different games of all types. The selection includes slots from top providers and mobile and live casino games (total number of games is above 600).
Game variety is lacking (no live casino or games are only slots) or casino does not have the most popular game providers (total number of games is above 500).
Number of games below average and missing most popular game providers (total number of games is around 400).
Inadequate assortment of games, top games from providers such as NetEnt missing (total number of games is under 350).
Neither the number of games nor their quality is convincing (total number of games is under 250).

Customer support

All online casinos on our site provide a minimum level of customer support to their players. However, we appreciate a hefty dose of attentive and dedicated customer care. Reviews should comment on the types of customer support channels provided by the casino and how effectively they are managed.

Here's a guide to help you rate a casino's customer support function:

Live chat immediately available and excellent email response speed. Friendly and well-mannered customer care in general.
Good customer service but could do with improvement in speed or friendliness.
Customer service channels are acceptable but limited in their scope and usefulness (e.g. live chat is missing).
Extensive shortcomings in the level of customer service provided.
Customer service provided is very poor and not practical at all.

Banking methods

An online casino should focus on making transactions to and from the casino simple and efficient. Players want to know how easy and safe it is to transfer money for playing games in any given casino. When you have a good grasp of how money transfers work for a specific online casino, you can play with more ease of mind.

A high-quality casino should support plenty of banking options to cater for many tastes. For example, casino sites that accept PayPal or let you top up your casino account on mobile aren't hard to find on Bojoko.

We also verify the withdrawals and see if the casinos promises are true. We want to know how long it will take for them to process a withdrawal and how fast they will actually pay it.

Here's how you can rate a casino's money transfers or transactions:

Most common withdrawal methods are offered and quickly processed, money transfers are free or carry a minor fee.
Withdrawals are not efficient enough or money transfers include high and unnecessary costs.
Withdrawals paid out at a slower-than-average rate.
Withdrawals are too slow with additional transfer costs.
Depositing is not recommended because money transfers are not reliable.

Mobile performance

Casinos are focusing more on the mobile experience on their site and in their reviews. Increasingly, mobile apps and devices are favoured over the traditional desktop version by players in New Zealand and beyond.

If you're a gamer on the go, check what other users are saying about the casino's mobile experience. Keep your eyes peeled for new, innovative features that streamline the casino experience on mobile.

Here's a guide for rating a casino's mobile performance:

Exceptional mobile casino, user-friendly site, diverse selection of games and top-quality basic features.
Missing or defective elements from an otherwise acceptable mobile casino (low number of games or lack of banking methods).
Mobile site has obvious shortcomings that hamper the gaming experience.
Very primitive mobile site lacking significant features found in the desktop version.
No mobile functionality whatsoever.


Online casino reviews give you a first-hand experience of playing on a casino site. Our accurate and up to date online casino information lists the important properties of a casino.

When sifting through the casinos' information and especially the ratings, seek out:

  • Genuine, objective and balanced accounts that are informative and unbiased.
  • Answers to questions you may already have and insight you didn't even know you needed.
  • Raw accounts of player experience, even though they sometimes may be written in a heated state of mind.
  • Summary of the strengths and weaknesses of the casino.

Online casino ratings and reviews help players recognise the best casinos to play in. A negative review also warns others to avoid sites acting dishonestly or offering a bad experience overall.

When you become a member of the Bojoko community, you can review and rate the casinos, and leave comments about your overall experience.

Every online casino rating is compiled by enthusiastic players. Read about the highlights of any casino and leave your own review when you're ready to share your casino rating with everyone.

Remember to be thorough and fair in your descriptions and online casino ratings. Your input is invaluable in helping us make the online casino industry a better one for all.

As an online casino reviewer, make sure what you say is relevant and helpful to other Bojoko community members. Keep in mind that they are reading your review to understand what kind of experience they'll get if they sign up to the online casinos you reviewed.

Maintain a safe environment. We don't allow any profanity or vulgarities in our user reviews.
