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!
- 24/7 support service;
- Mobile friendly;
- Powered by Real Time Gaming;
- SSL encryption.
- 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.
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 alright, although nothing spectacular. The navigation is fine, with all the tabs and categories in their places. Cute little touch - there’s a section about South Africa on the website, its nature,
aliens wildlife and culture. All the curious naturalists out there will be delighted.
Customer Support: Support is available around-the-clock via toll-free South African line, regular line, live chat and email.
Banking: Banking options are standard: Visa/Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz and some more. However, the only currency accepted is ZAR (South African Rand), 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 counts over 300 games total from this provider. The casino is available in the instant play mode and as a downloadable piece of software. You’ll have to go with the latter in order to get access to the full library. The games themselves are alright, but it would have been nice to see more software variety. 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.

Mobile and Live Games
Mobile version of the casino runs right in your browser and supports Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone platforms. The number of games is lower than in the desktop version - just around 150.
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 deposit amounts, which sucks. And things get even worse when you find out that you can get the welcome package only in case 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.
