Royal Panda Casino Review Rating Details
Royal Panda’s ‘Instant Play’ software has become the yardstick for industry standards. The casino is powered by Microgaming and Net Entertainment. Possibly the best software providers across the board. The slots games are flushed with a myriad of scatters, free spins, wilds and multipliers that can turn a paltry bankroll into a hefty one.
Software and Special Features
When it comes to the protection of your personal details, rest assured that it enjoys top billing. The site uses state-of-the-art encryption software (SSL) making it virtually impossible for hackers to access client information. If you have children always keep your login details to the casino in a secure place.
The majority of the games on offer are slots but don’t let this put you off. The site also caters to players who enjoy playing video poker, progressive jackpots, live casino, table games and scratch cards.
Throughout the course of this review I placed little emphasis on the Microgaming games. You’re most probably wondering why? In general the NetEnt games, especially the slots offer a better return to the player than the Microgaming games. If you have some cash to burn I suggest you try your luck at Microgaming’s progressive slots.
The sign up bonus of 100% up to $200 is okay. Players interested in enhancing their bankroll can make use of it. To qualify for the deposit bonus you must deposit at least 10 credits. Just remember that before you can cash out your winnings from the bonus you must roll it over 35 times.
How does it work? You deposit 20 credits, in turn you’ll receive an extra 20 (100% match bonus). Play with 40 credits.
Aside from its deposit bonus to new players, Royal Panda does not offer many promotions. But one of them is a sitter! Players who manage to hit the biggest possible combination on Starburst will win a trip to space valued at $100,000. This seals the deal for me. It’s a once in a life time opportunity and an ingenious promotion nonetheless.
Players can earn comp points by playing certain games. Once you’ve accrued a certain amount of comp points they can be exchanged in lieu for prizes at the Royal Panda Shop.
If you accept the deposit bonus of 100% up to 100 credits you must turn over the bonus 35 times. In my books this is steep.
You deposit $100, Royal Panda credits your account with another $100 (100% match bonus). Your initial bankroll of $100 just shot up to $200. Therefore, before a cash out is permitted you must stake 35x$100=$3,500 worth of spins.
All slots, soft games and scratch card games count 100% towards the completion of the play-through requirements.
At the time of writing the combined progressive jackpot pool stood at $8 million and counting. Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis and The Dark Knight rises currently offer payouts of $2 million plus. These progressives are extremely volatile so don’t expect regular payouts. Other games worth mention are Arabian Nights and Major Millions.
When it comes to funding your account, Royal Panda is in the top echelon of online casinos. The site offers numerous deposit methods and the low withdrawal limit (10 credits) is a winner for me. It would be great if the site can improve on its daily withdrawal limit of 5,000 credits.
If you request a withdrawal for the first make sure that you provide the following verification documents:
1. Copy of your passport, ID card or drivers license.
2. Copy of your latest utility bill (electricity or insurance) or bank statement not older than three months.
Withdrawals will be processed from 24 hours up to 10 days. This depends on the deposit option you used.
Customer support at Royal Panda is available 24/7 seven days a week. It can be contacted through email, live chat or telephone. Live chat is only available from 13:00 to 22:00 Central European Time (CET).
Royal Panda Casino’s average payout percentage for all its games is between 96% and 98%. The casino does state that its software is audited regularly for transparency but does not post the findings of the audit report on its website.
