Bonuses at SpinYoo casino NZ

One of the first things New Zealand players want to know about is the bonuses. And that’s why we cover them first in our SpinYoo casino review. 

SpinYoo casino is all about offering New Zealand players a choice. The deposit offer is actually available for two different parts of the casino so that players can choose the one that most suits their gambling needs. 

Within each deposit bonus, players can make up to three deposits to claim the bonus. And, for the first deposit, 100 free spins are available as well. 

As with all bonuses, the SpinYoo casino bonus comes with wagering requirements. These are set at 35x and must be met if a withdrawal is to take place.

SpinYoo takes regular players into account as well. Not only is there the main deposit bonus, but there are ongoing SpinYoo casino promotions as well. These include free spins on slots or pokies, cashback for live games and a loyalty program. 

Bonus rating

95/100 Lucrative welcome offer and additional promotions
  • Low minimum deposit
  • Various daily offers 
  • Generous loyalty programme
  • High wagering requirement

I have to say, the SpinYoo sign up bonus or welcome bonus is a good one. First up, I really liked the fact that there are two different parts, one for slots or pokies, the other for the live casino and table games. 

The welcome bonus also spans three deposits and actually matches the one from LeoVegas very well. However, LeoVegas is marginally better because, on that first deposit, you get 200 free spins compared to 100 here. 

The minimum deposit required to claim this casino bonus is NZ$10, which is similar to most other casinos, so I was happy with that. 
I will say though, that the wagering requirements are slightly on the high side here at 35x whereas at Casumo they are only 30x. That being said, there are better monthly rewards in the VIP program and ongoing promos at SpinYoo, which is where my high score comes from. 

If you want a bonus free spin or two, this casino has that in the first deposit and also offers ongoing bonuses. However, there is no SpinYoo no deposit bonus, which is why this section doesn’t quite get the highest score. At least there is no SpinYoo bonus code to deal with. 

SpinYoo online casino games

Our SpinYoo casino review also takes a look at the casino games available to New Zealand players. We like to see at least 500 games on offer and should include live casino games. 

In particular, there are a large number of pokies (or slots) available. With over 3000 on offer, these come in an array of different types, including classic games and jackpot slots. 

There are hundreds of virtual table games here too. These include variants of blackjack, baccarat and roulette. Additionally, there are keno, bingo and plinko games to play. 

The casino also offers a range of live games. These games cover everything from roulette and blackjack through to live game show games. Additionally, there is a large baccarat lobby to explore.

Games rating

93/100 Diverse collection of games across all genres 
  • Thousands of pokies
  • Large live casino
  • Top jackpot slots 
  • Limited poker games 

I do love a good selection of games and this White Hat Gaming-owned casino does this very well. Once you create an account you’ll be able to see all that’s available to play. 

When it comes to pokies, this casino is top of the pile. There are more than 3700 pokies to play. This really makes the 300 or so offered by bet365 pale in comparison. 

There’s an array of different genres too, notably a good live casino section with top games such as Lightning Roulette, several live blackjack variants, Sic Bo and more. 

However, while SpinYoo is good in some areas, casinos like BetAndPlay still manage to top it. That casino has 400 jackpots and more than 500 live dealer options, which significantly beats what SpinYoo has to offer. 

Of course, I am not saying that SpinYoo is bad here. It’s far better than most and has a good selection of more unusual games like virtual racing, video poker, keno, Slingo and more. All of this helps to boost my score. 

Software providers

Having a range of providers to choose from is essential if a casino is to offer a comprehensive gaming library, where we like to see at least 20 providers available. 

SpinYoo casino uses 123 providers. These encompass top providers such as Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, etc. 

The casino also boosts its game selection by using lesser-known providers too. There are games from studios such as Rabcat, Relax, Big Time Gaming, etc. 

There is no bespoke software here. And there are only two live casino providers supplying games for New Zealand players to play.

Software rating

92/100 Huge selection of popular and new software providers
  • More than 100 developers 
  • Evolution live casino 
  • New and established names
  • No bespoke software

Even though it’s getting more and more common, I am always surprised at how often casinos have huge numbers of providers. A whopping 123 can be found at SpinYoo casino. 

This number of providers actually means that there are more options than King Billy, which has just 65 providers. The top provider at SpinYoo is also the more diverse Pragmatic Play, rather than King Billy’s Play’n GO. 

Similarly, SpinYoo casino beats out LuckyWin for the number of providers too. However, it falls down when it comes to the live games. There are only two live providers, Pragmatic Play and Evolution, compared to LuckyWin’s nine, which means the latter has far more choice when it comes to live roulette variants and other games. 

Still, I am not complaining here at all. This is a massive number of providers, and it means that the job is done well. 

Better yet, because of all these providers, there are some lesser-known games on offer that I don’t see at other sites. And all the games are mobile-friendly, which is always a massive plus for me.

Payment methods

An important aspect that we focus on when writing this SpinYoo casino review are the payment methods. Ideally, we want to see ten or so options for a good score. 

When creating an account, players at SpinYoo casino will find seven different options available to them. These cover the main card and eWallet options. 

There are some prepaid options available as well, such as Paysafecard. However, there are no cryptocurrencies accepted here at all. 

New Zealand dollars are accepted, with the casino only showing options available to that country. Deposit limits are a minimum of $10.

The casino doesn’t actually impose much in the way of transaction limits. Instead, limits are governed by the payment method used and their protocols.

Withdrawal methods

Payments rating

86/100 Solid set of payment methods but add more withdrawal options
  •  Good selection of options
  • No fees applied
  • Fast processing times
  • Limited withdrawal options

This is actually the first section where I have had to drop the score a little bit. And that’s only because there really aren’t enough payment options for me to be truly happy. 

Okay, so there are good things here. There is a low minimum deposit of just NZ$10 if you aren’t making a first deposit to claim the casino bonus (a NZ$20 deposit is needed to get the offer). Both of which are lower than the NZ$30 deposit requirement of JustCasino. 

I really like the fact that the casino itself doesn’t actually put any transaction limits in place at the upper end of the deposit spectrum. It simply leaves that up to whatever each payment method dictates. 

For withdrawals, it’s a little more disappointing at the higher end as this is capped at NZ$2500, whereas sites like Spin Casino have no limits here either. 

Overall, I’d like to see a few more options when it comes to making a deposit here. Six is a good number to start funding your account, but a little more variety would be nice for a better score. 

Safety features 

Of course, staying safe is a must when at an online casino. We never recommend any online casino that doesn’t hold a licence. 

SpinYoo casino has not one but two different licences. These are from the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority issued for White Hat Gaming Limited to its registered address of 85 St John Street, Valetta, Malta 

Both the Great Britain and Maltese jurisdictions have strict policies on gambling, and the website has to adhere to these if it is to remain operational. 

Additionally, the website has strict responsible gaming tools, which are there to make gambling more secure and fair for its players.

Safety rating

91/100 Strong security measures are in place, but no game auditing information
  • Public RTP percentages
  • 256-bit SSL encryption 
  • Excellent responsible gambling tools
  • No auditor listed
  • No wagering and loss limits

I have to say that this is one of the strongest sections for this casino, in fact for any NZ casino at this time. I’m very happy with the security here. 

First up, this casino has two licences. They’re from the toughest jurisdictions out there, which is more impressive than ExciteWin’s Curacao licence if I am being perfectly honest. 

The site has all of the gambling tools I would expect. And, it makes it very easy for players to set and change their own deposit limits as soon as they set up an account. 

However, if I have a complaint, it’s the fact that there are no auditing seals listed. For Royal Panda, it’s clearly checked by eCOGRA, and I’d like to see similar confirmation here too. 

For the most part though, this casino really does it right. All the security steps are in place, and it’s registered with GamCare, which is a really big bonus point for me. 

Mobile features

Accessing casino games when out and about is a must for most players. Now, we don’t expect all casinos to have an app, but we do want to see a mobile browser website available to play on all mobile devices. 

SpinYoo casino is fully mobile compatible, but there is no mobile app available. However, all games are available on the mobile platform. 

The mobile platform matches the desktop version completely. The same bonuses are offered on both platforms, as are the VIP program and the chance to score loyalty points. 

All the games, including live games, can be played on the mobile platform. Similarly, signing up and setting up an account is accessible on the mobile version. 

The mobile version of the site is easy to navigate. It loads well and doesn’t take long to get games up and running provided there is a good internet connection available.

Mobile rating

80/100 Decent mobile browser site, but no native apps avilable 
  • Full complement of games 
  • Accessible on all devices 
  • Fast access to games 
  • No mobile app 

Again, I felt this is really just a solid score here as there are some things I would like to change. But that’s possibly to do with the overall usability. 

There is no mobile app here. But these days, there doesn’t need to be, and I am not marking down for the lack of an app. Guts Casino doesn’t have an app, either. 

What I am looking for, though, is an excellent mobile browser platform, and this is something that SpinYoo casino does have. It matches the desktop version of the site, making it easy to jump between the two platforms. 

I was also pleased to see that the mobile browser version has all the same games as the desktop version. This is the same as Playzilla, which manages to transfer it’s entire game library to the mobile platform. 

Essentially, the two platforms are the same. It’s instant play, too, so there’s no need to download anything if you do decide to play on the mobile version.

Customer support

No matter how good a casino appears to be, we always want to make sure that there is good support in place. 

Ideally, we want to see at least three different customer support options, and one of these must be available 24/7. 

SpinYoo has two customer support options. These include an email address and a live chat. Both of these are available 24/7 to players. 

Helpful customer support agents man the live chat. It’s also got the fastest response time for urgent queries.

Helpfully, the casino also has a Help Section. This contains different topics with an FAQ section for those who want to avoid using customer support immediately. 

Support rating

95/100 Two customer support options with speedy response times
  • 24/7 support available
  • Helpful and friendly staff
  • Speedy response times 
  • No phone support

Once again, I was very happy with the options provided to me for the customer support. Yes, there are only two options, but these are still very good. 

Once I had made an account, it was easy to check out all the options. And, just like Stake, SpinYoo casino has 24/7 support in place, which I was happy to see. 

Disappointingly, there is no phone line here. But, I am finding that this is increasingly common as JackpotCity Casino also lacks a phone line. It would be nice to have one, though. 

For those who prefer to find things out for themselves initially, there is a help or FAQ section. I will say that this could have a little more in-depth info as it’s lacking a little bit. 

Having sticky live chat available on each page does make up for this, though. And when I did get through to the staff, they were friendly and helpful, so great score here. 

Usability

Finally, we take a look at how easy it is to set up an account and use SpinYoo casino. We want to make sure that signing up is a quick, positive experience. 

Rather than being on the left, the main menu is on the right here. This has drop downs for the casino games, bonuses, banking and more. 

Spinyoo casino New Zealand

Within the games library are a number of different categories. These include slots (or pokies), Must Go Jackpots, Live Casino, Tables and Drops and Wins. 

There is also a separate menu for providers. This lists all the different suppliers and helpfully includes the number of games available from each casino.

There are also different filters to whittle down the games and a search bar that has various search options. All of this loads well with minimal lag. 

Usability rating

96/100 Organised and clean site with advanced filtering in place
  • Advanced filtering available
  • Simple and uncluttered library
  • Fast loading times
  • No information about the games

Ok, so this definitely sounds like a bit too much quibbling in an otherwise good website, but why is the menu on the right not the left side of the page? It irks me, but maybe not others who play here. 

Though, I don’t have too much else to complain about. I was impressed with the provider filter as it also lists the number of games each one offers — a step up from Joo, which only lists the providers. 

I was happy to see the search function taken to the next level elsewhere. Rarely have I seen so many filter options for searching at any online casino in NZ. 

Load times were fast, too as there are minimal graphics. It was also effortless to create an account – I didn’t have to go through a lengthy signup process. 

Better yet, and similar to Wildz, there is a ton of information on responsible gambling with clear options to self-exclude, cool down and more. I found the process for account closure super easy, too, giving this a solid score.

Expert verdict

Our SpinYoo review has revealed a lot of great things about this online casino. First, there are tons of online games available, with over 3000 pokies alone. Live casino games are powered by Evolution Gaming, among other providers giving a diverse, high-quality collection across the board. 

A solid deposit bonus is also available to new players gambling on this website. It’s a match deposit bonus, but there are 100 free spins thrown in too, when you opt in. Return players can claim Yoo Points through the VIP program for more rewards.

Other areas of note are the double licence for greater security, the range of speedy payment methods and the low deposit limits in place once an account has been set up.

FAQs

Is SpinYoo casino legit? 

Yes, SpinYoo casino is a legit gaming site. It’s operated by White Hat Gaming Limited, which is registered at 85 St John Street, Valetta, Malta, and runs a number of other online casinos under its company name. Additionally, the casino has not one, but two different licences. These are held with the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority, both of which have strict regulations to prevent underage gambling. 

Is there a SpinYoo no deposit bonus available? 

No, at this time there isn’t any no deposit bonus available at SpinYoo casino. However, there is a first deposit offer that covers the three main areas of the casino – pokies, live casino or all of it as a whole. Each of these deposits has a total of three deposit bonus options. Make sure you abide by the deposit limits and take note of SpinYoo Casino’s terms and conditions.

How long does it take to withdraw money from SpinYoo? 

The time it takes for a withdrawal to come into your account depends on your chosen payment method. Typically though, across all payment methods, there is a pending period of 1 to 2 days while the casino checks you’ve met any wagering requirements. Once this period is up, it can take up to three working days for the funds to appear in your account. 

Can I access SpinYoo casino on my phone? 

Yes, it is possible to play SpinYoo casino NZ on your phone. However, there is no mobile app available. Instead, SpinYoo online casino is mobile-compatible and available to play on all mobile devices. The same casino games and welcome bonuses are available to New Zealand players making an account and gambling on the mobile browser version of the website.

What casino games can I play at SpinYoo? 

You can play a huge range of casino games at SpinYoo casino. There are many table games, including virtual blackjack, craps, poker and roulette. These games are also found in the live casino, where you can enjoy live roulette, live blackjack and more.
