With a name like VIPs Casino, you’d expect a truly five-star experience from the website and their headline offer of 500 free spins is good enough to make anything feel like a high roller.
VIPs Casino was well laid out, with a clear menu banner across the bottom of the page. It also has a well-placed search bar, as well as an easy-to-find promotions tab. A luxurious colour scheme of black and gold helped VIPs pass the eye test as it added a real sense of decadence to the playing experience.
Its bonus was one of the more generous on the internet, with free spins, matched deposit and a weekly cashback that will make even the most casual player feel like the most important person in the world.
It was really easy to sign up, in fact, the whole process was done in two steps and a few minutes. I was asked for the usual information: name, age, address, email etc. However, I wasn’t asked to verify my account at this stage.
VIPs played well on both desktop and mobile, customer service was excellent and their deposit and withdrawal methods were satisfactory.
All new players at VIPs Casino can claim a generous welcome package with bonus money and some nice bonus spins. When you deposit a minimum of NZ$20 or more, you'll receive:
- 100% match deposit bonus up to NZ$200 + 500 free spins on Book of Dead
To claim this offer, follow the below simple steps:
- Sign up for a VIPs Casino account
- Verify your account by email
- Make a minimum deposit of NZ$20 or more
- Your welcome offer will be credited to your account
The name really sets VIPs up to fail, but only if they don’t deliver. However, its welcome bonus and cashback scheme really cuts the mustard here. A lot of players prefer cashback to a bonus, and VIPs makes everyone feel special by offering both.
VIPs’ monetary value of the bonus isn’t really that much, with just 100% on offer up to $200, but those extra spins will really tickle the tastebuds of players who like to settle down in front of a virtual slot.
500 free spins on Book of Dead is a generous allowance, and the x35 wagering requirements are a little on the higher side but isn’t through the roof. Players will be allocated 100 spins a day, for five days, while the welcome bonus has to be used within 21 days.
That gives plates nearly a month to get through the matched deposit; which should be plenty of time! The spins will need to be used up, all 100 of them, in 24 hours.
Often there’s a high roller element to cashback schemes, but VIPs has no wagering requirement before players are eligible to get a portion of their losses back every Monday - and that’s generous.
I was under the impression that players had to enter a bonus code to claim their bonus, but I was wrong! I deposited $50 and had it matched, despite never entering a code or asking for it.
VIPs also runs a series of ad-hoc promotions and tournaments that can help players boost their winnings and have a little bit of fun on the way.

VIPs is heavily marketed towards slot games - pretty much all the real estate on the homepage is taken up with them - so I wanted to give that a fair crack of the whip.
Wacky Panda (Microgaming) caught my eye because it’s got a great name and the graphics looked really inviting, although the gameplay was a little more simple than I first expected. It’s a very simple, three-reel slot game but it does have an incredibly small minimum bet of 3c, which means players can sit here and play for ages without losing too much. However, my luck was out so I tried my hand at Gorilla Kingdom (NetEnt).
This game allowed for 20c spins and was graphically richer than Wacky Panda, and included five reels for a bit more action. There was a little bit more going on here, with some free spin symbols and jungle tunes, but after a few spins and even fewer winnings, I decided to explore the table games section of the website.
Normally digital table games aren’t my thing, but I discovered blackjack multi-hand from iSoftBet. The minimum spend was tiny at just 10c, and you can play more than one hand at once. This was a good game if players just want to dabble on blackjack without much fear of losing too much.
I had to try some live casino after that, so I went for my tried and tested Lightning Roulette (Evolution). The dealer is more like a game show host in this version of roulette, and the lightning bonus makes things really interesting indeed - it’s well worth a play.
Via desktop, everything worked really well and I found no glitches of note.

Most of the games are also available on your mobile and you are also able to contact customer support, deposit and withdraw on mobile. Just head to your browser app on your mobile and go to VIPs Casino.
But would that classy design and high-end functionality translate to mobile? Well, the answer to that one is yes. This website was easy to navigate and everything was formatted correctly. I really liked the footer at the bottom of the site that made it super fast to find exactly what type of game you’d like to play.
The games played well and functioned properly over 4G. There’s not much more you can ask for, really.

As I said earlier, I asked VIPs customer service to remove my unwanted bonus for me. This is an area that I didn’t feel too special as it was kinda tricky to access the live chat I wanted.
After some gnashing of my teeth and a couple of dead clicks, I finally accessed the customer support I needed, and to be fair to VIPS, once I connected to the live chat their customer service was excellent and my issue was sorted out in minutes.

Verifying your player account at VIPs Casino is both smart and safe. It is recommended to verify your account as soon as you open it. This is to make sure that you will receive all your winnings quickly without any delays.
You'll be asked to provide some of the following documents:
- Proof of ID (passport, driving license, ID card)
- Proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, official government letter)
- Proof of Payment Method
I wasn’t required to upload any documents or verify my account, before depositing money. VIPs does state that players ‘may’ have to verify their account before making a withdrawal, but the customer service agent I spoke to was unaware under which conditions this would come into effect.
Depositing and withdrawing at VIPs Casino is both safe and easy for New Zealanders. You will be able to play in NZD, which we recommend to avoid any exchange charges.
VIPs offers a wide range of ways you can deposit money to the site, and I chose one of the few e-wallet options. I was asked to provide a promo code at a couple of points here, but as I had none - and didn’t want the bonus - I chose not to enter any information in.
It can take up to 48 hours for withdrawals to be processed and credited back to your place of choice, which is pretty standard across the industry. I was pleased to find my money back in my account within that timeframe.

I'm a trained journalist but I'm also passionate about writing - just ask my mum about the hand scrawled books I created when I could barely string a sentence together! I've found enjoyment and passion on a number of projects; sport, music and travel. Stepping into casino reviews is the logical next step for me.
