Min Dep30 AUD,
Even though I have a couple of favourite Australian online casinos that I frequently play in, I still love to try new gambling websites once in a while — to claim new casino bonuses and stay aware of the current trends in the gambling industry. To get wants and needs met, I not just try them, but also write the reviews. Our today’s guest (or a victim?) is Roku casino. We’ll see how smoothly it works, how good the games here are, and what are the potential chances of winning the real money and withdrawing the wins from here.
Min Dep30 AUD,
There are two types of casino players: those who are satisfied with the quick overview and are ready to start making their bets once they see the “I recommend the casino” sentence, and those who need all the little details before they commit to a website. If you are one of the players in a hurry, this part is for you.
1. Roku can’t boast a wide variety of payment options so I had to use Skrill for my deposit, even though it’s usually not my first choice. $20 for the start seemed reasonable. Will I be able to multiply the first deposit? We’ll see soon.
2. The wagering requirements for the welcome bonus here are 40x, so it’s a no-go for me.
3. I was kind of in a detective mood so Holmes & The Stolen Stones pokie by Yggdrasil was a perfect option for me at the moment. It all started pretty slow and I was losing a spin after a spin, but suddenly, things changed and Miss Luck turned her head towards me, so I ended up with $145 in my account.
4. As Roku only allows withdrawals to be with the same method as the deposit, I attempted to cash out my wins to my Skrill account and it was a successful attempt — I got the money within the next day.
So, when it comes to wins and withdrawals — Roku casino gets three “yes” and can move forward to the next round. I’m not quite satisfied with the welcome bonus and the choice of payment methods though, so let’s take a look at these aspects in more detail.
Roku casino might claim that it’s unique and unusual, but when it comes to testing the casinos, all the websites are equal for me and have to undergo the standard procedure — 6 quality aspects, 6 chances to win or lose.
As always, we are starting off with the casino’s license and other safety aspects as I’ll never trust my money or recommend a casino to my readers if there are any doubts about its security. So the first thing we do here is scrolling down to the very bottom of the website to see the licensing information.
Roku has the Curacao license which is not the most popular and reputable one in the world, but it’s good enough when you are playing in Australia where not all the other licenses are available.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any information about the testing certificates as well as about the methods used for data protection, so we are left here to wonder.
Payment methods are kind of a weak point of Roku casino, even though I was still able to make a deposit and withdraw the wins quite fast. This is how you can make a deposit to Roku while in Australia:
And this is how you can cash out the wins if any:
NB: You’ll only be allowed to withdraw the money using the same method you used for the deposit.
Here comes another weak point, but this time a more subjective one. You know I always carefully read the Terms and Conditions of any bonus offer before I claim it, and this is what I found in the Roku welcome bonus T&C.
For many players, 40x wagering requirements seem like a good offer, and if you are one of them — feel free to claim the welcome bonus and use it for good. As for me, this number is slightly higher than I’d prefer, so I made my bets in Roku without claiming the welcome bonus.
Besides the welcome bonus, you can also make use of the weekend reload offer and get 50% of your Saturday or Sunday deposits back as bonus money. The wagering requirements are still going to be 40x though.
It looks like we are finally done with Roku’s weak points and can move on to the positive sides. One of them is definitely the choice of games offered by the casino. I got tired counting the pokies, but there are definitely more than a thousand of them. The list of live-dealer games is shorter, but there is still something to choose from. And, of course, the fans of Roulette and card games won’t have problems finding a perfect title as well.
If you are looking for games from a specific provider, there is a convenient filter to use. By the way, Roku is one of the casinos that offer not only the games made by worldwide-famous providers like Microgaming or Ezugi, but also the less known companies like Gamomat, Red Rake, and Spinomenal.
Roku is a 100% mobile-friendly casino, that’s a fact. Not only is it working perfectly in a mobile browser, but it also has a dedicated mobile app that you can download for free and use if playing in a browser is for some reason not convenient for you. I’m not a big fan of casino apps so I tested a mobile version of the Roku website and have nothing bad to say about it: all the games are available, navigation is easy, and no crashes are to be expected.
I usually don’t tend to overpraise the casinos, but Roku has really earned it as I got the fastest reply from customer support here. You know I always ask CS a couple of questions even if I know the answer myself, just to see how it works. And this is where I didn’t get disappointed. It took just a few seconds for the operator to join the chat and 2 more minutes for my question to be replied — good job, Roku!
Just like many other online casinos in Australia, Roku wants you to stay as long as possible and benefit from it. You’ll be getting loyalty points for spending money and making bets and will be able to exchange those points into the bonus money later.
Online gambling is fun, but there are moments when it can be hard to control yourself and not spend more than you can afford. I really appreciate it when online casinos allow players to set limits on their spendings or time spent on the website, and Roku is one of them. Every player can easily set the deposit limit in their profile or set the self-exclusion time.
If you or someone you know have problems with compulsive gambling, feel free to visit this page and find some helpful resources with more information on the topic.
I took enough time to test and try Roku casino and here is what I found out. Generally, Roku is a good and safe website where you have a real chance to win real money and get it quickly withdrawn. There is a vast choice of games of all kinds, and customer support is super-friendly and responsive.
As for the disadvantages, I can name the lack of payment options and pretty high wagering requirements which is definitely not fatal for a casino, but still worth remembering.
