Bonzaspins.com was launched in 2018 as an Australian-oriented online casino. Although the site doesn’t provide any information about its license, it bears the SSL certificate and seal, and this is an extra assurance for players.
It boasts the Macau section and a comprehensive variety of casino games, live casino, and live lotto, nearly 700 items in total. The site offers an ample amount of promotions (or bonuses), a VIP Club, and loyalty rewards.
A good reputation and excellent site navigation set this online casino apart from other Austalian casinos. The graphics are attractive, crisp, and clear. Site lag is minimal during gameplay, which is yet another positive attribute of the casino. There is even a chat function for players to communicate with each other on the platform.
Apart from relatively high wagering requirements and some sticky bonuses, there’s hardly any real critique for this online casino.
Games and Providers
The comprehensive site layout divides the casino games into easy-to-access categories. There are icons for popular games, new games, and you can even mark your favourites. You can take your pick from 25 progressive jackpots, table games, and video slots.
You can view all games as a grid, a list, or in alphabetical order or simply search for the exact game you want using the Search button.
Bonza Spins is powered by several software providers, namely iSoftBet, BetSoft, and IGT.
You can access the casino via an instant play on their site, and there is also a mobile version for iOS and Android devices. The casino doesn’t provide the download option yet.
Their Live Casino offers live Blackjack, Baccarat, and Roulette.
Live Lotto includes 4 different game rooms or ‘studios’, as they call them. You even get a Youtube tutorial on how to use each of the 4 studios linked on the page.
Macau is the cherry on top, an immersive experience of every Aussie’s favourite casino getaway. Escape to Macau with one click from the comfort of your own home!
Terms and Conditions
This gambling site has one of the most comprehensible Terms and Conditions section out there, and this is truly a top level compliment for any online casino. They have everything covered — we hereby express our salutations to their lawyers.
They go so far as to give you an example of what a 35x wagering requirement means so that you truly know what you’re getting yourself into.
The site has a “Responsible Gambling” page, calling on its patrons to basically call for help if they find themselves spending too much time on the site. It even suggests players install NetNanny or CyberSitter as a way to truly prevent minors from using the platform.
It even shows the date the Terms and Conditions page was last updated. Call us OCD but we really appreciate that sort of stuff!
To show our appreciation of their honesty, please enjoy the screenshot below.
Bonza Spins clearly reminds you of what practically every casino wants to get you to forget — gambling can (and most often does) mean losing money! And that’s fair enough!
Not much sticks out as fishy or unusual in their Terms and Conditions; it’s all pretty straightforward and usual for most platforms of this kind.
One thing you should keep in mind: Article 3.5 of Terms and Conditions states that your account will be considered inactive if you’ve not logged on for 3 consecutive months. Unless the balance on your account is zero, you will start to be fined with a monthly maintenance fee — 10 AUD a month until you reactivate. If you don’t log in for 6 months in a row, your Player Account becomes a Dormant Account and the casino may withhold or even void all your funds at their discretion.
They do want you to come back for more, or you’ll pay for it if you don’t.
Complaints and queries are pledged to be addressed within 7 business days and resolved within 14 business days.
Deposit and Withdrawal
Nothing unusual here. Just bear in mind, you can only withdraw your winnings using the same deposit method. There may be withdrawal fees depending on the method or a handling charge from your bank, so keep this in mind.
You need to place a minimum of 20 euro/AUD deposit in order to receive any deposit related bonus, and you need to play through the wagering requirements (35xbonus). You can only withdraw the Withdrawable balance, as they put it, when you no longer have an Active bonus (that is, when you’ve played through with all of it).
Cashback winnings are capped at 15x the initial cashback amount or no more than 10.000 EUR and loyalty points bonus can be converted 10x the initial loyalty points or 5.000 EUR maximum.
You may not place a bet equal or in excess of 20% or more than 8 euros of the claimed Bonus amount or a single bet equal to or in excess of 10% of a free no-deposit bonus.
Keep in mind all their bonuses are “sticky”. This means you get to play through with the bonus money, but you don’t get to keep it. You can play with it while you’re at the casino, but it’s ultimately the casino’s toy and you can’t have it.
The initial sum of a bonus gets deducted from the balance once you’ve played through the wagering requirements (or upon withdrawal). Your balance has to be bigger than the initial sum of the bonus in order for you to get any cash back.
Also, watch out for ‘expiration’ dates. Free Spins are only good for 7 days, for example, and it’s really worth a skim of the Terms and Conditions just so you avoid any needless surprises.
The maximum withdrawal amounts for free spins/bonuses are 100 EUR, and you may claim them within 30 days or watch them being voided.
Now, there is a whole section on Promotional abuse, something the player prospector should educate himself on. This is basically about how the Bonza Spins Casino wants to stop you from using the bonuses it offers to your own advantage, instead of the casino’s.
Skim the screenshot below:
For example, they want to stop you from switching to a high wagering game in order to achieve the wagering requirements sooner. Have a quick read from the screenshot below, again to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
The contribution means you get to use 100% of your wagering requirements on slots, which are traditionally the lowest wagering game, and yet only 10% of what you wager counts towards your playthrough requirements at table games. 0% means the game is restricted.
All in all, decent Terms and Conditions as far as online casinos go, and especially for Australia. Just keep the sticky bonuses and tricky bonus playthrough conditions in mind.
Now let’s see what types of bonuses are offered under these terms.
The wagering requirement for spins within this bonus is the usual 35x. The initial welcome bonus consists of 150 free spins if your first deposit is $20 minimum.
The 150 free spins are distributed like so — you are awarded 75 free spins right after the deposit, and the remaining 75 free spins are unlocked in increments of 25 spins per day over the next 3 consecutive days. You do not need to make any new deposits for these remaining increments.
Bonza Spins offers a unique 2100 free spins per week bonus. Once you’ve made a $25 deposit, you get 30 free spins, and you can do this up to 10 times a day. Yes, that equates to $250 deposited per day, but you do get 30 free spins with each deposit.
This means you can get 300 free spins a day, or 2100 free spins per week.
Returning Bonus Options — “Ripper Returns”
Once you’ve made your 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th real money deposit of $25 minimum, you become eligible to receive a 50% match up to $200 each time. If you return to claim this bonus consistently over 4 days, you can amass up to $800 in welcome bonuses.
The wagering requirement is 35x on the bonus amount only.
It’s a ripper!
Bonza Spins doesn’t charge additional fees on withdrawals, which is great. However, depending on the deposit/withdrawal method that you use, the different banking systems might charge you something. Visa withdrawal takes 0-3 business days, and the Bank Transfer takes up to 0-5 business days.
Players can withdraw a minimum of 50 AUD. Since the online casino does not impose any maximum limit, players can withdraw as much as they want (rather, as much as they’ve won) from their accounts but not more than 5000 AUD per transaction. Mind that the online casino can only process a maximum of 10,000 AUD every 10 banking days.
If winnings are over 50.000 AUD, a third party (the Game Provider) verifies the winnings, and everything is resolved within 7 business days.
Whenever players make a withdrawal request, the online casino will put it in pending state for 48 hours. During this time, the online casino verifies player details. Players have to send copies of documents that prove their identity to the online casino. These documents include photo ID, fronts/backs of credit cards, and latest utility bills. It takes up to 5 business days to process your documents.
You need to apply for withdrawal by filling out the notice of withdrawal on the site.
Withdrawal requests are handled within 48hrs.
There is a support team available for you round-the-clock, with an option to email [email protected], and they answer back as soon as they can.
The Live Chat is really the fastest way to make contact, and they answered us in less than 2 minutes, which is perfectly stupendous.
There is no phone, but there is information on the internet that they will phone you if you email them your phone number and ask for assistance that way.
A beautifully designed online casino! We do believe we’ve used the word “comprehensive” in an excessive fashion, but it was truly deserved, and it sublimates the way this casino operates.
Shame it’s just for Aussies!
