Red Dog Casino Review 2020
If you’re an Australian Casino player looking for the next place to open an account and enjoy a fine experience playing a good selection of casino games while being well looked after, then Red Dog Casino could be the place for you.
They’re one of the newer additions to the Australian market but have wasted no time in getting their house in order. Thanks to a slick design that makes the site easy to use and quick to find anything. A healthy welcome bonus and the guarantee of quality that you get from having a seasoned provider like Real Time Gaming on board.
And there’s more. They hold the trusted Curacao License. So you know that they’re trustworthy and closely monitored. And they also boast what is certainly one of the better mobile products out there. With a good Customer Service Team operating round the clock. And the ability for players to try out all their games for free without having to open an account. And bet with real money and you can start to see why we’re so fond of this new Casino.
We firmly believe they will go places over the next few years and became a proper favourite among Aussie players.
Red Dog Casino Bonuses and Promotions
Here you start in style thanks to a 225% deposit bonus. It’s a rather strange amount to offer but new customers won’t be complaining when they more than treble their money first up. Remarkably, there seems to a minimum amount you can deposit but not a maximum amount so it seems there’s no limit at all on how much you can receive.
But it’s always worth reminding Casino players that bonuses aren’t quite as straightforward as they seem. It’s worth knowing the restrictions on each welcome offer from one Casino to another inside out and here are the main ones for this one.
- You’ll need to enter the relevant bonus code to get your deposit.
- You can’t bet more than 10 AUD at a time when using bonus money.
- You can’t cash out for more than 30 times the value of your deposit.
- The wagering requirements are 35x the value of the deposit and the bonus you get combined.
- Only pokies, real-series pokies, keno, scratch cards and board games are allowed when using the bonus.
By the way, your bonus will be boosted by a further 20% if you make a deposit using either Neosurf or Bitcoin.
In summary, you can grab yourself a load of extra cash to play with thanks to the welcome bonus. But remember that being able to get that money out and back into your account isn’t that straightforward. So, you don’t have to go all guns blazing and make a huge deposit first up.
Each month they feature a Game of the Month, which is normally a new pokie that they want customers to try out. Playing the game gives you a 150% bonus on your next deposit, plus 50 free spins on it.
Red Dog also offers ongoing reload bonuses where the more you deposit, the more you get as a bonus percentage. For example, depositing 150 AUS gets you a 160% bonus on your deposit. But again, remember that bonuses aren’t ‘free money’ so pick and choose the times when you want to claim them. And how much you want to deposit each time carefully.
Red Dog Casino Banking Options
When it comes to depositing, take your pick from Visa, Mastercard, Neosurf or those new and trendy Instant Gift Cards by Visa and Mastercard. Another option is Bitcoin.
The first two allow you to deposit up to 1000 AUD per transaction, with Gift Cards being a maximum of 500 AUD per deposit and Neosurf 250.
All these methods bar Bitcoin are instant. So, within seconds of pulling the trigger on those deposits, you could be playing all of your favourite games. Bitcoin takes about 15 minutes to go through and is perhaps the most ‘finicky’ of the deposit methods.
By that we mean, there are lots of little details that need to be absolutely 100% correct or else the transaction won’t go through. Don’t forget that using Bitcoin gives you that little bit extra when it comes to getting a bonus, though, so it has its advantages.
When it comes to withdrawing, you have three options: Credit Card, Bank Wire and Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the quickest, in this case, taking 1-3 business days while Bank Wire and Credit Card will take 4-5. There’s a maximum withdrawal of 2,500 AUD per transaction so if you secure yourself a really big win you may have to do it in three or four goes.
There are no fees at all when it comes to withdrawing your money, which is refreshing.
As is the case with any Casino, you’ll need to provide some documents to prove that you are who you say you are when you make your first withdrawal request.
Red Dog Casino Casino Games
RealTime Gaming is their software provider, a company that‘s been around since 1999 and began in Atlanta, Georgia. These days they operate out of Costa Rica.
We’d be lying if we said their pokies are quite as well-known as those made by the likes of NetEnt or Microgaming but there are some well-known ones nonetheless. Among them are Bubble Bubble (and its sequel Bubble Bubble 2), Achilles, 5 Wishes, The Mariachi 5, Bigshot, Coyote Cash and the brilliantly named Count Spectacular. You can always use the search function if you want to find a particular pokie you know they have but which isn’t one of their featured ones.
Away from the pokies and there’s some poker to look forward to, more precisely video poker. Well-known versions like Jacks or Better or Deuces Wild are here, plus a few others. If you’re new to video poker, it involves drawing five cards and being able to exchange them once in a bid to build the best possible hand you can. The stronger the hand, the more you win. Jokers or Deuces (sometimes other cards as well) act as Wilds, substituting for other cards to help you out.
If it’s table games you prefer, then there is no shortage of those either. The classics like Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat are all there but so are a few others. Pai Gow Poker is available as is Craps, the famous dice game that is common in casino-themed movies. There’s also the very appropriately named game of Red Dog. How does it work? You’re going to have to find out by playing it.

Customer Support and Safety/Security
We’re not fans of Casinos who only offer e-mail as a method of reaching Customer Service. It makes you feel like you’re totally at their mercy in terms of them only getting back to you when they feel like it. We much prefer Casinos who have Live Chat and phone available as well. That way, there’s no hiding place for them when it comes to you getting in touch!
Joking aside, it’s something we feel strongly about and thankfully there are no issues here at Red Dog. Thy have all those three mentioned, they operate 24/7 and they’re generally very good with answering queries from customers and solving problems.
We have no concerns about the security aspect of things, either. Not only is their Curacao licence evidence that everything is in place but having played the games and made deposits and withdrawals, we have reason to worry from personal experience, either.
Red Dog Casino Overall Experience
We like what we’ve seen from them so far. Points are given for the quality of their site, their welcome offer, Customer Service and payment options. And we always appreciate it when Casinos let customers (whether active or not) to try out their games for free.
Of course, a Casino’s work is never done, there’s always room for improvement and it would be silly to expect such a new Casino to nail absolutely everything within the first few months of their existence.
We’d like to possibly see a second software provider on board for a little more variety. And maybe even a Live Casino at some stage. They could also think about cutting down a bit of that waiting time when it comes to processing withdrawals. They don’t need to be taking 1-3 business days when other Casinos can process E-Wallet requests in less than 30 minutes.
But that’s just splitting hairs. And not only do we like what we’ve seen so far but are strong believers that they’re going to get even better.
