I like the Spela design. It doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles but it’s bright, functional and looks good on the screen. A lot of casinos get carried away and have a hundred million moving parts that distract your eye and leave it difficult to focus up, but Spela gets it spot on.
Most casinos have a really simple sign-up process, and this one is no different. I was asked to enter a username, email address and password. The next step was to enter my full address, gender, location and currency.
A $1000 bonus was generous, and it came with the offer of 100 free spins as well as a constant stream of other rewards such as Free Spin Tuesday and Friday Frenzy.
The games were fun and played well - I particularly like the style of Sherlock Bones and the offering of Respin King, while the live casino dealers were incredibly engaging and fun to be around. One thing that wasn’t great was the two-screen freezes I experienced during blackjack, which is never a nice thing to see.
The mobile side of things was well designed and worked fluidly, but the customer service left a little to be desired.
Spela Casino's limitless journey of fun begins with generous welcome package. As a despoting players, you have the option of claim a welcome package worth NZ$1,000 + 100 free spins

- 3rd deposit: 25% deposit bonus up to NZ$300 when using promo code SPELA3

While the homepage might not have been eye-catching, the bonus certainly was. An offer of $1000 and 100 free spins is right up there with the best of them, even if the $1000 was spread out across four separate deposits.
Despite this, your first deposit would still yield a decent return of 100% up to $200 as well as those free spins - this dropped to 50% on $200 for deposit two, while three and four yielded 25% up to $300.
A wagering requirement of 40x was a little on the high side, but perhaps understandable given the size of the bonus while the rate of free spins (20 on the first day, 20 a day for four days after that) was also decent.
Spela also included a 100% live casino bonus of us to $100, which is commonplace across the online casino landscape, as well as a range of other bonuses such as Free Spin Tuesday and Friday Frenzy.

Cooked up in the creative kitchens of world's most popular casino game suppliers like Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n Go, Quickspin, Red Tiger and Yggdrasil our lobby can match the expectations of even the most demanding player.
You can spin on old faithfuls like Starburst, Immortal Romance, Gonzo's Quest, Book of Dead and many more. For the jackpot-hunting thrill-seekers, Spela Casino is offering you Jackpots in abundance! Massive winnings are up for grabs in the big-pot stalwarts like Divine Fortune, Mega Moolah or Mega Fortune.
We have built our lobby to be user-friendly so that finding your preferred game is as convenient as possible. For example, online pokies are categorised into video slots, classic slots, jackpots and "must fall jackpots". It's also easy to too all games developed by specific supplier and if you already have certain game in mind, search-function is your friend.
Spela has a prominent slider at the bottom of their homepage that advertises one of their big jackpot slots, Respin King by SkyWind Group. The aim is to collect as many crowns as you can in order to get as big a jackpot as possible, while players can also win free spins as well as cash.
Respin King’s minimum bet was 50c, so this is a pretty expensive game to play - but I did land a $2.50 winner on my second spin and one of the King’s exciting respins. Another spin, this time for a $1 because I guess I was feeling lucky, got me into a wheel of fortune style mini-game that paid out $20 and I left feeling like the King I had just raided.
Another slot heavily advertised was Legacy of the Dead by Play ‘n Go, so I joined them for some fun. With 20c bets, this game is a bit more affordable to play and I was soon spinning away to my heart’s content. The fun red/black mini-game definitely keeps thing interesting and give players the chance to turn their modest returns into someone far higher.
With those two games under my belt, I headed for some European roulette at the live casino. A maximum bet of $1 means that there’s more to lose here, but also a bit more to gain if those numbers come up trumps. The game played nice and smooth, I managed to win a little bit, and I departed for the blackjack table.
During blackjack, I suffered a bit of a lag/buffering issue, which never makes a player feel too at home. The fact that this happened twice in quick succession made it even worse! To be honest, after a few busts I kept playing because the dealer had some outstanding chat - which always makes playing on a live casino a lot more appealing.
There’s only so many times you can take the dealer pushing on 22 or hitting up 21 before the inevitable rage quit happens, so I transferred my gaming to mobile to see if I’d have more luck there.

Simple navigation, professional customer service, fast payments and top-notch game selection are among our strengths on mobile as well.
Spela was nicely laid out on mobile with a good colour scheme and a really easy to use format. I gave Sherlock Bones a play, created by Electric Elephant, it’s one of the new games on site. This had a really cool steampunk style that was paired with your classic Sherlock icons like the smoking pipe, a magnifying glass and several funky clues. There was no meat on these bones, though, and after 10 spins I left without much luck.
I did find it a bit difficult to find what type of game I wanted to play - but I settled on Instant Roulette by Evolution, mainly because they had 40c stake options and I wanted to tone it down for a little bit. This game worked really well on the small screen, and one thing I liked about it was the fact that I didn’t have to wait for anyone and I wasn’t being pressured by a live dealer to place my bets.
Everything worked well over wifi and 4G as well.

Email support was slightly better and did manage to answer my questions, however, they took just under 24 hours to respond to my question.

Minimum deposit for all options is only NZ$10 and there's never any fees in any of our depositing methods. Withdrawals must be made using the same method as when depositing and the minimum withdrawal is NZ$10. .
Depositing money was easy. I hit the big blue deposit button, chose my e-wallet and pressed continue. I decided not to play with a bonus because I didn’t want to have to gamble over 40 times to withdraw my cash.
There was no transaction fee on the deposit, which is always nice, and I was directed to my e-wallet to complete the deposit with a minimum of fuss. My deposit went through quickly and I was ready to play! However, a $3 fee on my withdrawal is always a little bit of a sucker-punch, and it might be harsh but I feel like that merits Spela losing a star.
My withdrawal was processed in less than 24 hours, so getting my money back nice and quickly made up for the fee a little bit.
