With a crown icon on the homepage of Royal Panda, I awaited my coronation as I hit the "sign up" button at the top left corner of my mobile device. Clicking that icon, I got up to speed with a registration process that was in three quick steps.
While there was an option for a quick sign-up via Google, I'd have to say the "old-fashioned" me decided to go through these steps one after the other (well, attaining royalty means you'll have to put in the work).
Inputting details spread across personal and account details, the final page prompted me to click the T&Cs checkbox to proceed to Royal Panda Casino as a newly registered player.
Since there was practically no bypassing this checkbox (it's compulsory), clicking "Confirm" granted me access to the Royal Panda Casino. Next up on my itinerary was to commence gameplay at this online casino.
To accomplish this bit, making a deposit was next on my to-do list. To find out how things panned out, you'll have to read the subsequent lines for in-depth insight.
Royal Panda has a royal-sized bonus for new players. Grab up to a $1,000 bonus on your first deposit.
1st deposit: 100% up to $1,000
How to claim your bonus:
- Sign up to Royal Panda
- Log in and go to 'my offers'
- Wager your deposit 35x
- Claim your bonus money from 'my offers'
The bonuses on Royal Panda are wagered first, and then given out as cash. You can always see the Wager Bar that lets you know how close you are of completing the bonus.
On the generic Royal Panda homepage, you're bound to see varying extras and promotions.
Most of these offerings are represented by the Giant Panda himself. Although I had a somewhat negative vibe about Pandas in times past, Royal Panda's theme helped alleviate my anxiety. Here, there are three steps to laying bonus claims - Register, Deposit, and Get Bonus.
Completing the first step (registration) in no time, I headed to make a first-time deposit using my preferred e-wallet (ecoPayz). Successfully making a NZ$50 deposit, I came across a pop-up almost immediately.
True to the steps presented by the cuddly Pandas, I was prompted to choose a suiting Welcome Bonus. Since Royal Panda has a separate casino and sports section, a welcome bonus is attached to each.
While I might be called overly "petty" at times, I couldn't collect a bonus due to the playthroughs attached. However, for Kiwis interested in the bonus, it's worth collecting. On the pop-up that comes up immediately after a deposit, it's up to you to claim the one you want.
If you're a sports betting fan, click on "Sports Bonus." Nonetheless, if you're like me, an ardent casino lover, a tap on the "Casino Bonus" will suffice. In case you're not a fan of wagering requirements, there's an "I Don't Want a Bonus" segment just below the Welcome Bonus offers.
Since Royal Panda doesn't want you to get into something you'd regret when you commence wagering, there's a "More Info" icon attached to the distinctive sign-up offers. Ensure you go through the one that pertains to your preferred offer to know the unique provisions attached.
Not collecting a bonus at Royal Panda was somewhat disenchanting as I felt left out a bit. However, I headed to the game's lobby with one phrase in mind - there's always a next time!

We have brought in a large number of well-known game developers to provide you with the very best of games. Here, you can the best slots and table games on the market.
NetEnt, Microgaming, Play'n GO, Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play, Nolimit City and Quickspin are just the tip of the iceberg here.
We also have the biggest jackpot games available. Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune are both playable right here among other big pots.
Since we'll be focusing on casino games mainly, here’s a brief insight into the sports markets at Royal Panda. Here, sports betting gamblers will be amazed by the number of categories on display. With over 25 segments available, iGamers can place wagers on notable sports variations like Football, Golf, Cycling, Boxing, Motorsports, Tennis, and lots more.
Coming back to my preferred base (the casino), I started with slot games to kick-start my gambling journey. I went with the slot Deadman's Trail (Relax Gaming) first to trace the roots of real money wins.
Fifteen spins later (NZ$0.10 each), I was disappointed as I won a mere NZ$0.18. Next time, I won't bother seeking winning pointers from the "Deadman." Why not just get help from the living?
Up next on my slot gaming list was John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen by Pragmatic Play. Desperately hoping that John Hunter would illuminate my winning path with his burning touch, I got spinning. Taking a total of 20 spins, I managed to win NZ$10.10. Not the greatest of winning margins but I'm content regardless.
My next port of call was the Big Time Gaming slot tagged Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways. With my modern fortunes going "haywire," I decided to go back in time for a proper resolution.
After taking ten spins (stepping the bet value up to NZ$0.50), my win margin was at an all-time low. Winning a total of NZ$0.30, I couldn't even recoup my bet value on a spin. At this juncture, I was miffed as all my hopes went down the drain.
Picking myself up, albeit slowly, I headed to the live casino segment where I sought to mark my iGaming adventure climax with "Crazy Time." Opting to calm my losing nerves on this Evolution Gaming offering, I'd consider myself lucky as I managed to win NZ$10. While high rollers might see this amount as measly, it meant so much to me, given my other outcomes.

Playing on your phone or a tablet is easy on Royal Panda. Our casino was built from the start to be mobile-friendly, and we have improved it over the years for an even better user experience.
You can play directly on your mobile browser. It doesn't even matter what modern device you have. Just as long as you have access to the Internet, you can play.
Our mobile game selection is nearly as large as our desktop one and both are growing constantly.
At Royal Panda, accessibility is a breeze as I could place wagers without any hassle whatsoever. I put on my critic glasses to ascertain if this site was smooth sailing for the most part, I made some discoveries.
Starting with the positives, I'd have to heap praises on Royal Panda for implementing a quick and easy sign-up process via Google. Although this isn't a new addition to online gambling destinations, it made sign-up pretty convenient at my end.
Also, I'd like to commend Royal Panda for its cashier segment. While there's nothing out of the ordinary, the sheer fact that you're furnished with maximums for specific deposits is a worthy add-on, regardless.
That said, Royal Panda seeks to give reading gamblers a break in between wagering sessions with a well-curated blog in the mix. Royal Panda's blog is pretty encompassing, featuring different segments, including casino, sports, winners, guides, reviews, and news.
At Royal Panda, however, I noticed a negative. Although it can be overlooked as it happens occasionally, I noticed temporary delays when I clicked some icons on mobile. To nip this issue in the bud, you can opt for PC play all through.

Player safety is an important factor to us. We have built Royal Panda with high levels of security and want to make this a safe place to gamble.
We also take our players into consideration and thus, we offer a lot of tools to help you if you have problems with gambling.
You can set yourself limits if you feel like you are playing more than you should. You can limit the amount of time or money you spend or even take a temporary or permanent break.
We also provide you with an easy access to professional gambling help services that can help with problem gambling.
Royal Panda customer support team is here to help you with any questions you might have. Our knowledgeable staff will quickly sort out any problem or answer any query.
You can contact us via live chat or email, or go check out our help centre. There you will find answers to the most common questions we get.
Customer support is non-negotiable at wagering platforms as it helps bridge the gap between players and the online casino itself. At Royal Panda, customer support is known as the "Help Desk." Visiting this section, I saw two customer support mediums: FAQs and live chat.
I'd have to say the FAQs segment was extensive as there's an answer for almost any issue you have. Some major suits here include deposits, withdrawals, accounts, responsible gaming, verification, and others.
When I had some queries concerning account funding, I got a corresponding answer in no time. Well, no surprises here as Royal Panda tends to give you the ultimate royal gambling experience.
Using the live chat, I got replies within seconds when a customer representative finally addressed my concerns. Placed on a queue when I got to this section at first (I wasn't the only one seeking a royal outing), I was assigned a representative some 75 seconds later.
Not coming across an email alternative, the FAQ and the live chat does the job seamlessly. No complaints here.

In accordance to gambling laws and the rules set by our licensors, we need to know who our players are. We follow a strict KYC (Know-Your-Customer) policy and need to verify our players' identities.
This process starts when you sign up. At first, we just ask for simple personal information, like name and address. We will later ask you to verify these by sending documents as proof. The documents we ask include, but are not limited to the following:
- Proof of ID
- Proof of address
- Proof of deposit
Registration wasn't the most daunting of activities at Royal Panda. All I needed to do was fill up the appropriate segments in the three-step sign-up form and click the T&Cs checkbox to get started.
Since safety is a vital prerequisite for every online casino, Royal Panda takes verification seriously as many cyber criminals run around masking themselves as prospective players.
To verify my Royal Panda account, I headed to the "Verify Account" segment under "Profile." Here, I submitted my ID and a corresponding utility to confirm my address. At Royal Panda, the KYC service HooYu is at the thick of things to approve document submissions.
After an hour, Royal Panda verified my account, and I could go about wagering-related actions without any reservations.
We have multiple deposit and withdrawal methods available for Kiwis. The methods are all safe and fast to ensure secure transfers.
At Royal Panda, the payment methods available weren’t as extensive as I would've hoped. However, it included Debit & Credit Cards alongside several e-wallets (Neteller, ecoPayz, and Skrill).
When making deposits, I came across maximum limits attached to each payment alternative (something I considered pretty nifty). Clicking on my preferred payment form (ecoPayz), I was redirected to the generic ecoPayz page to input my details for transaction processing.
Doing this for a NZ$50 deposit, Royal Panda immediately credited my account, and I could now place wagers on my favourite slot games. With deposits being convenient, I was sceptical about payouts due to my experience at other iGaming sites.
However, my scepticism was relegated to the background as all I needed to do was input a withdrawal amount. Opting to use ecoPayz once more, Royal Panda made things pretty straightforward as my details from earlier (deposits) were saved. Submitting a request, I received funds within 6 hours.
That said, I'd like to see Royal Panda list all their payment alternatives in a flowing format. Although the "More Options" icon brings these methods to light, it's a tad bit inconveniencing for "Royals" like myself.
Skrill 0-2 working days, NETELLER 0-2 working days, EcoPayz 1-3 working days
