Let's start with the name of this iGaming destination, "Race Casino." Typically, races have two critical points - the start and the finish. So, does this casino have what it takes to start strong, stay strong, and finish strong? That's what this review aims at establishing, so keep your eyes peeled!

Registration on this wagering platform is a breeze. Visiting the site for the first time, I saw a pop-up - "Ready to Register?" - with two options underneath; "Yes, Now!" and "Later." Tapping on the former, the site instantly redirects to a page to fill in some personal details in a 3-page form sign-up process.

Details required on the first page include email, password, currency, and country. On the second page, I inputted specifics such as gender, mobile, and birthdate. Clicking "Next" took me to the final page with four checkboxes regarding T&Cs, privacy policy, email, and SMS.

While the first two boxes are compulsory, the other ones are optional and seeing as I wasn't interested in receiving promotional emails and SMS, I checked the mandatory ones. I hit "Register" and was swiftly redirected to the homepage. Seconds later, I landed on a page that got me up to speed with the array of deposit options on offer. Using my preferred choice, I made a deposit (more on that at the payment section).

Featuring a blue-black-yellow colour scheme that looks pretty good, the word "Racy" best describes Race Casino’s ambience. Besides, with an adaptive user interface present, icons are legible and easily accessible.

Typically, online casinos go to great lengths to showcase bonuses to attract potential players. At Race Casino, however, the reverse is the case. Here, no banner or pop-up displays promotions and other rewards for new and existing players. To check what bonuses were available, I had to go through the bonus terms and conditions binding to Race Casino.

I found that bonuses are only valid for 30 days. Although I'll welcome an extension, this timeline is pretty accommodating for players.

Activating my bonus, however, didn't go quite as planned. Heading into the site for the first time after completing the registration process, I got to see the different payment options on offer. Clicking on "Deposit" beside the ecoPayz took me to another page. On this page, there's a space for the amount and bonus code. Since I didn't receive a bonus code, I left that section blank. I keyed in my desired deposit amount, and hitting "Deposit" again took me to a payments page for ecoPayz.

Filling in the necessary details and tapping the "Transfer Now" option, the site processed my transaction, and after a 20-second wait time, I got a legible "Success!" message on Race Casino. Going back to the homepage, Race Casino credited my casino account with €31 (initial deposit amount). With Race Casino promising a bonus of "100% up to 100€", I was livid for missing my bonus. Furthermore, the absence of my jurisdiction's currency "NZD" was another major bummer (see specifics bordering on this development at the deposit section) that increased my frustration.

Going through the bonus terms once more, I learned that payment platforms, including Skrill, NETELLER, and ecoPayz, weren't eligible for welcome bonuses. Taking responsibility for this grave error, I think Race Casino should've made distinctions of this policy during deposits since players don't have the luxury of time going through bonus terms and policies. Well, I've learned my lesson.

The homepage on Race Casino doesn't give you an array of game thumbnails like other online casinos. Instead, you get to see the various deposit methods available. Scrolling down and clicking on "Go To Games" takes you to the games section. While I can let this development slide, I feel the casino indirectly prompts you to make deposits rather than trying out games.

The gaming section at Race Casino includes popular games, tournament games, new games, live casinos, slots, table games, jackpot games, video games, and lottery. While these categories include slot games mostly, this arrangement is sure to make players keep everything in perspective; pretty nifty if you ask me!

Heading to game testing and not having the promised bonus present in my quest to make huge winnings felt weird, but I had to play regardless. Being a fan of Greek mythology, "Rise of Olympus" caught my attention, and I immediately wanted to give it a try. Developed by "Playn' GO," this slot was a disappointment in all ramifications. Taking a total of seven spins (€1 for each), I lost everything, and as a result, there was no "rise" in my casino account balance - gutting.

My next port of call was the video slot titled "Big Bass Bonanza." Powered by Pragmatic Play, this slot features upbeat music that's sure to keep you spinning. Taking twelve €0.40 spins, I made no wins, just losses; could it be the game's algorithm or mother luck not being on my side?

Heading to the live casino, my favourite part of every online casino for the scenery, I set wagers at "Mega Wheel." As the name entails, there's a commentator that spins a wheel with numbers, and if you're fortunate to place bets on a winning number, you win. The theme of this casino is bright and colourful. With the live chat feature present, you're never going to get bored as interaction with other players is seamless. Making a total bet of €7 on different numbers, I won a measly sum of €0.80; nothing major, but I won something finally, eh?.

Scrolling down the gaming section, I saw some tables showcasing winners in different slots and other categories. Although I consider it a pretty innovative add-on by Race Casino, my name was noticeably absent; better luck next time, I guess.

Race Casino on mobile

Like all modern online casinos, our website was created using the latest HTML5 technology to ensure a seamless online gambling experience regardless of the device you are using.

As a result, there are no mobile casino apps to download. You simply browse to the website from your phone or tablet, log into your account and pick up where you left off.

Upon sign-up, the site prompted me to install the Race Casino app, and I was ecstatic. Why? Most online casinos these days do not churn in resources to build a steady mobile app. Thumbs up, Race Casino!

Using Google Chrome to access the site was a breeze. Race Casino touts itself as the "fastest online casino," and using the site continuously accentuates that phrase. Like the "Asphalt" race games we play on our phones these days, this website tries to incorporate all those elements to give a swift user experience all around.

Signing into the site for the first time, you get a prompt to input a name for tournaments. Personally, this is the first time I've seen this, and with this development, the constant need to input a username when playing related games is practically non-existent.

For players finding it hard to read text with the dark-coloured theme, there's a "Light Mode" feature under the hamburger menu (top right of your screen). Upon activation, the site becomes much brighter, with contents more legible.

Well, it's not smooth sailing all through as there are some drawbacks. For instance, if you click the "show more" option on any game category, the next page that pops up takes you to the bottom part of the page. Although this is a slight inconvenience, scrolling up each time can be frustrating.

Also, I feel the site needs more polishing. There are some "HTML" texts you're likely to see (users with a web design background may catch my drift). Although it changes after a while, players can miss out or misinterpret vital information that may benefit them in the long run.

Overall, I'll describe the website on display by Race Casino as the "nearly" site. With a few additions, it has the potential to be perfect. Until that happens, all we can do is hope.

Customer support and customer relations go hand in hand. At Race Casino, players get an array of customer support variations.

To access customer support, click the "hamburger" icon on the top right-hand corner of your screen and tap "support." Doing this gets you up to speed with the support options available. You can contact the marshals (a name used instead of customer support agents on this wagering platform) via live chat, email, and phone number. At the bottom of this page, there's a contact form that allows you to shoot an email directly without hassles. The "safety" and "FAQ" icons are under the contact form.

The "live chat" feature is at the bottom right corner of your screen for easy access. Clicking it when I had issues relating to my bonuses took me to a page welcoming to the "Race Casino Live Chat." Filling in details including; name, email, and message, one tap on the "chat" icon took me to another page to speak with an actual customer agent. Although replies were prompt, the site layout was so archaic, reminiscent of the "Nimbuzz" platform.

Towing the path of emails, I got a reply in roughly three hours. Now, response times here aren't the fastest. Nonetheless, it works.

Documentation at Race Casino is straightforward and hitch-free. Featuring a three-step form, details ranging from my name, username, phone number, gender, currency, and country were mandatory. Completing this process, I received an email from Race informing me of successful account creation and the various contact channels available.

Reading further to see if an activation link was in the mix, there wasn't any, and I was disappointed. Although this isn't anything significant, the presence of an activation link makes you feel secure in a way.

Heading to "Verification" under "My Account," seeing the message "Not Verified" didn't augur nicely with me. However, all efforts to verify my account proved abortive as there was no section to upload documents.

Banking

Kiwi players can available of various payment methods, including Visa and Mastercard, PayPal, ecoPayz, Neteller and Skrill.

Despite having New Zealand as a jurisdiction, the currency "New Zealand Dollars" is noticeably absent. There are three currency options; Euros, Pounds Sterling, and the Swedish Krona. Here, deposit amounts aren't going to accentuate the NZD, and conversion rates will apply. I find this development a weird one, as I can't fathom why Race Casino would accept wagers from a country without having its currency for deposits.

Depositing through ecoPayz was seamless, crediting my casino account almost instantly after a 15-second transaction process time. I feel this iGaming destination prioritises deposits over bonuses. For context, there's a deposit option on the homepage, and the site gets you up to speed with the various deposit methods available once you log in.

You'll need to click the "Hamburger" icon and tap the "Withdraw" icon for withdrawals. Doing this redirects you to a page where you'll see the withdrawal options available to you. Making a withdrawal request using ecoPayz (initial deposit method), I got to know that there's a minimum withdrawal amount of €20, and luckily for me, I had €20.50 remaining. With charges non-existent for deposits and withdrawals, inputting €20.50 (current balance) couldn't go through for some reason. Submitting a withdrawal request of €20, I got the message, "You have successfully started withdraw." Although this statement's grammatically wrong, I'm not here to give Race Casino grammar lessons.

With a withdrawal request queued, users can't make deposits unless they cancel their pending withdrawal. In less than 12 hours, I got an email from the customer support team at Race Casino. Reading its contents, I realised that I could only withdraw for free only when I've met the wagering requirement of €19.7. Not meeting this requirement meant that a 5% service charge would be placed after another withdrawal request, cancelling my previous one. Making another withdrawal and accepting the charges, my bank account got credited in just under three hours.

Race Casino has the makings of a perfect online casino, but issues stemming from currency, withdrawals, and minor website errors may deter it from reaching this purported destination.
