Aussie Play Casino Review
The first thing one notices when visiting Aussie Play online casino is the beautifully designed website with spectacular drawings serving as a background. The functionality the site offers is also a welcome surprise. The layout of the site is incredibly intuitive, and everything you might need is well within sight and reach.
Apparently, this casino is owned by an alien called Aussie in partnership with his space cat (who, judging by the bowl on its head, is the only one not able to breathe in the Earth’s atmosphere), and Zuzu, who we imagine is the group’s financial advisor and/or hive mind.
Aussie the alien states the following: “Their spaceship computer has caught the slots machine signal from the Earth, and they landed here, in Australia!”
The ramifications of this are immense. Australian residents do not have a great choice of online casinos at their disposal, and now, they are getting one whose provider is non-terrestrial in origin. If this alien business venture becomes popular with players down under, Australia might become an intergalactic gambling mecca. Who knows what that may bring to us, and what it might mean for the world of online gambling.
Oh, and we’re not alone in the Universe.
Bonuses & Promotions
Bonuses, this extraterrestrial casino offers, are numerous as well as generous. At the time of the writing of this masterpiece, there were no fewer than nine of them.
There are five Welcome Bonuses, one Game of the Month Bonus, and three special offers. Excerpts from the T&Cs pertaining to the bonuses are rather helpfully displayed on the site below their announcements.
The casino’s bonuses mostly revolve around pokies. The player can generally expect anywhere from 105% to 175% pokies bonuses and up to 50 free spins on one of the slot games the casino has in the offer. Of the nine bonuses, four have up to four variants, depending on the amount deposited, with bigger deposits getting you better bonuses.
While we’re on the subject of deposits, somewhat confusingly, there are no deposit bonuses as those are among the most common bonuses online casinos offer. As a new player to Aussie Play Casino, you get 30 free spins on Mermaid's Pearls. This offer is available via the special link and bonus code: 30PEARLS. Alternatively, get $30 free chips to play any game when you register here and use bonus code: 30AUPOKIES.
Games & Software
Aussie Play could benefit from a wider selection of online casino games. Compared to some other online casinos, the number of games it has, especially slots, is not that large. However, it is still a young casino, and it does make it up with game quality as it is powered by RealTime Gaming, a developer known for high-quality games.
The casino features some 180 slots, 17 video poker games, 21 table games (various forms of poker, roulette, craps, blackjack, and so on), as well as some special games. Not a lot in the world of online gaming, but it’s a great start.
When it comes to slot games, our personal favourite is the wonderful RTG brainchild, Achilles slot. As far as we could tell, the plot revolves around a band of Greeks disemboweling a horse named Trojan. It has good payouts, free spins can be retriggered, and the graphics are simple and to the point.
When speaking about table games, you cannot go wrong with blackjack, and Aussie Play has three variations. They are very well done, the graphics and gameplay are well above-average, and there is even a satisfying cling of chips.
The site also offers live dealer games, which is commendable.
You can play for real money, or you could enjoy some free games instead to get a feel for the flow, so to speak.
Also, thanks to Zuzu, the piece of a sentient mucus-looking fellow, all the games featured can be played on your mobile phone.
The casino’s payment options are somewhat limited but include all the standard options. Deposit options include:
- Visa (min $30 – max $1,000);
- Mastercard (min $30 – max $1,000);
- Wire (min $25 – max $500);
- Neosurf (min $10 – max $250);
- Bitcoin (min $20 – max $2,500).
Withdrawal options are the same, except for Neosurf, and all of them share the minimum and maximum withdrawal amounts (min $150 — max $2,500).
The casino operates in Australian and U.S. Dollars exclusively, which is quite alright, considering its target audience.
Customer service is one of the best aspects of this casino. Players can contact them via phone (+61 1 800 957 289 and +1 855 201 1872), email ([email protected]), and live chat. They are so polite and helpful we thought they were either hitting on us, or they’re Japanese.
Of course, we tested them via live chat only as we didn’t want to pick up the bill for phoning whatever planet Aussie is from (we’re joking as the phones are toll-free). Before you contact the support, you should definitely check out the FAQ page, which contains a list of questions neatly arranged into categories, along with clear and concise answers you may find really helpful.
While obviously a precursor to an alien invasion, this is a pretty sweet casino. The site design is beautiful, and everything you might need is, at worst, two clicks away. While the games could be more plentiful, their quality is indisputable.
With good games, a customer support team every player dreams of, a website of otherworldly (see what we did there?) beauty and simplicity, and nine bonuses and special offers, this is among the best gambling sites around.
Aussie, Space Cat, and Zuzu have certainly done a bang-up job on their planetary gambling debut. That right there is the kind of entrepreneurial spirit that will help this civilization and species soar to the heavens.
We, for one, welcome our new alien overlords.
All hail Space Cat, all hail Zuzu, and, most of all, all hail Aussie, the mastermind who brought this amazing galactic casino to Australian players.
