Have you heard of Fair Go Casino?
I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t. They’re a brand-new casino, having just launched in the first quarter of 2017.
Wait! Before you turn to run away, just know this – they may be a brand-new casino, but they’re owned and operated by an experienced company – Deck Media.
Deck Media’s been around for about a decade. They own several casinos, most of which have a relatively good reputation in the i-gaming industry.
So, if you’re looking for a new casino and you’re in Australia, I suggest you , and read this review to the very end.
For what it’s worth, I really liked reviewing their casino. It’s laid out differently than any casino I’ve reviewed in the past. Fair Go is well organized and super simple to use.
But I know that’s not the type of info that will get you to drop everything and rush over to make a deposit. So, let’s get into what is important – Fair Go’s banking options, promotions and games.
You can use:
Each option has a min $20 deposit, except for PaySafeCard, which has a $5 min deposit.
You can use:
The only fees are $50 for the bank transfer. Keep in mind this is on top of any fees your bank may charge you.
As for limits, Neteller and Skrill both have a $50 min cash out. And both the bank transfer and bitcoin options have $100 min cash outs.
What’s interesting here is they only payout with bitcoin, but – according to their website – they don’t let you deposit with bitcoin.
I contacted support to ask about this, but I think Pam must’ve been confused. Because she said bitcoin isn’t available for cash outs.
*I FOLLOWED UP WITH SUPPORT. WILL UPDATE WHEN I GET A RESPONSE.
Last, they have a clause in their terms and conditions that say:
They don’t say what this amount is, though. If it’s anything like Deck Media’s other casinos, my guess is that they’d pay you out at the rate of $2,000 per week.
If you run into any problems, you can reach out to Fair Go Casino using one of the following options:
I contacted support by email twice to ask about bitcoin, whether they accepted Americans, and what software options they offered.
Both responses took between 2-3 days, which is a bit long. And the answers Pam gave me (she responded to both emails) was the opposite of what I found on their website, except for one, which means somewhere Fair Go is giving us inaccurate information.
On the upside, though, Pam was friendly. That’s always a plus.
Yes, they do.
They have a $1,000 bonus offer. This is spread out over your first 5 deposits. You’ll get a 100% match on any deposit over $20 up to a max $200. Do this 5 times and you’ll collect an extra $1,000.
The rollover is 30x the deposit plus bonus. However, playing blackjack, video poker, craps, American roulette, baccarat and other table and non-pokies games will not count.
Yes, unlike some of Deck Media’s other properties, all deposit bonuses are cashable at Fair Go. The exception are no deposit bonuses, which have a 5x (the bonus) limit.
They have a few. Here are some details.
Get cash back on your losses. Once your balance falls below $1 you can contact support and they’ll hook you up. Your bonus will have a 10x playthrough. But there’s no limit to how much you can cash out.
Deposit at least $20 and get a 50% match bonus up to $200. You can claim this offer every single day. They don’t give a rollover on the offer itself. But if I understand their terms correctly, this is a deposit bonus – which means it should have a 30x (deposit plus bonus) rollover.
That’s it for their additional offers. They have others, including a double comps deal and a new game promo, but these are limited time deals. Chances are they’ll have expired by the time you read this, but will have something new in its place. You’ll want to visit Fair Go to see what those offers are.
Fair Go uses Real Time Gaming (RTG) software.
RTG software typically has more than 150+ unique games. Slots makes up around 60-80% of their library.
You can play:
You’ll notice that about 1/3 to 1/2 of these games are blackjack variants. Fair Go has 3 filters you can use to quickly find the games you want to play, too, which include: All, Caribbean and 21 Games.
I played a couple dozen blackjack hands while I was there. Everything operated smoothly and as it should – except for winning money, which I did not do.
Here’s a short list to give you an idea of they have:
Fair Go offers a mix of 3, 5 and 7-reel classic and video slots, as well as machines with features, bonuses and progressive jackpots.
They also have most, if not all of these in 3, 10 and 52-hand variants.
Your options include:
These are some of the progressives Fair Go has, as well as the jackpot they had when we reviewed them:
I wouldn’t trust the list they have on their site as to the quantity of progressives they have – which is where I pulled this list. But if you look in the bottom left-hand corner of their site, you’ll see they have several progressives and their jackpots rotating on display. There are many games/jackpots they show that’s not in their main list.
They don’t appear to have a download – you play their games from your browser. I briefly played blackjack while reviewing this casino, and everything worked fine.
I contacted support and asked if they offered a download. They said they offered a download and mobile casino. They said nothing about a browser casino, which is what I played, nor is there a download option on their site. It’s possible it’s only available when you create an account, which I didn’t do since I’m in the US. But having no download shouldn’t be a problem for most people using one of the major browsers (Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc.). The bigger issue I have is they said nothing about a browser casino when it’s clear from the way the site is built and that you can play the games free in your browser that they do, in fact, have a browser casino.
You can play from the browser of your mobile phone or tablet, too. I checked them out from my iPhone and the site is setup real nice. It’s real easy to navigate. And there are more than 75 games to choose from.
Usually I’d be hesitant to recommend a brand new casino. But since only the casino’s new – not the parent company, Deck Media – that’s not a problem here.
I’m a fan of their site. I like the simplicity of having a small website that’s easy to navigate and requires no download.
Though, I did find that their setup does get in the way at times. For example, when trying to check out each of their offers, their website is setup to rotate each offer every 10-15 seconds. This made it a slight pain to read the offer and it’s terms.
They only use Real Time Gaming software, too, which isn’t anything to brag about. But considering Australians have access to casinos with other software companies, having Real Time Gaming games may provide a change of pace. And that’s worth something.
My biggest complaint are the inaccuracies in their emails or their website. Someone doesn’t know what they’re talking about, which can cause confusion and doubt in someone who is thinking about signing up.
I wouldn’t mind a few more offers, either. But since they’re a brand-new casino, I expect that they’ll add more offers in the future.
That’s about it.
The bottom line – if you’re looking for a simple casino with a decent selection of games and offers – and you’re Australian – I think Fair Go delivers. Go check them out today.
