Springbok Casino Review
To be honest, Springbok Casino looks like an African natural park, occupied by some creepy aliens. No, really, just take a look at their website, and you will understand what we mean! And we were very serious when we said “African natural park,” since this casino focuses on South Africa, and neighboring countries (Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, and Mozambique). If you live in one of those - this casino is average at best. If not - sorry, this safari is absolutely not for you, and it’s not only because of your potential location! The wagering requirements of the welcome package (up to 11500 ZAR on your first three deposits) are pretty disgusting - 30 times the sum of your deposit and bonus. And withdrawing money may take you plenty of time!
Springbok casino is licensed by the gaming authorities of Curacao, and features a gaming collection by Real Time Gaming. Both of that facts are bad news for its clients.
- Mobile friendly;
- Has an entertaining blog about Africa;
- SSL encryption;
- Bitcoins are accepted.
- Withdrawals via wire transfer may take up to 20 days;
- No live games;
- The wagering requirements suck: 30xD+B;
- ZAR is the only accepted currency;
- Support may not answer your request.
Springbok Casino pretends to be the number one casino in South Africa. Founded in 2012, it is licensed and regulated by the Government of Curacao. The website looks outdated and not spectacular at all. The navigation is ok, with all the tabs and categories in their places. Cute little touch - there’s a section about South Africa on the website, its nature, wildlife, and culture. All the curious naturalists out there will be delighted.
Two languages are available: English and Afrikaans.
Customer Support: Support is available around-the-clock via toll-free South African line, regular line, live chat and email. Well, at least that is what written on the website. In real life, Springbok Casino may not answer you at all. At least, that's the most common complaint on popular casino-related websites.
Banking: Banking options are standard: Visa/Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz and some more. However, the only currencies accepted are ZAR (South African Rand) and Bitcoins, and the maximum possible amount you can withdraw per week is 25000 ZAR. And one more thing - usually withdrawals take from 48 to 72 hours, but getting your money via wire transfer may take up to 20 days!
Software and Gaming Variety
Springbok Casino runs on RTG software and has around 88 games. They claim that you will get more variety after installing an app, up to 300 they say. As you had already guessed, the casino is available in the instant play mode and as a downloadable piece of software. The games themselves are straight from the stone age of casino game crafting, and, in fact, RTG is known as a provider with a shady past.
Anyway, here are some games you can play there:
- Slots: Caesar’s Empire, Aztec’s Treasure, Cash Bandits 2;
- Table games: Blackjack, Pontoon, Caribbean Stud Poker;
- Video poker: Deuces Wild, All American, Aces and Eights;
- Specialty games: Keno, Craps, Treasure Tree.
Springbok Casino runs on RTG software and offers games from this shady provider only. Ouch!
Mobile and Live Games
Mobile version of the casino runs right in your browser and supports Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone platforms. And if you have an Android, then you can even install the special app.
Sadly, there are no live games to speak of. We hope they will add them in the future.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Package for new players comes in three stages.
- The first deposit - a 100% match bonus, up to 1500 ZAR (around €90)
- The second deposit - a 50% match, up to 5000 ZAR (around €300)
- The third deposit - another 50% match, up to 5000 ZAR.
Wagering requirements for these bonuses are x30 times the bonus, plus the deposit amounts, which sucks. And things get even worse when you find out that you can get the welcome package only if you live in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, or Mozambique.
The Welcome Package is not impressive to start with, and gets worse by being available in just a few African countries
There’s another bonus that you can use on any deposit - a 300% match, up to R600 (€36).
Other promos change occasionally and include cash backs, comp points, monthly bonuses, and slots tournaments.
