Even though they are based in Malta, Casino Mate offers special attention to their Aussie players. They’ve been around since 2011, making them quite well established as an online casino.

They’re owned and operated by Vegas Partner Lounge Casino.

The look is a bit bizarre and dated. Makes you think of a 90s warehouse shop. But they actually offer more than most in terms of game variety, banking methods and available bonuses. And who doesn’t like a little bit of retro cool?

Casino Bonuses and Promotions

Welcome Bonus

The Welcome Bonus is massive. You can qualify for up to $1,400 worth of Matched Bonuses and 80 Free Spins. It is honestly one of the biggest bonuses we’ve seen in Australia.

The reward is split over four deposits. To qualify, your deposits must be for at least $20. On your first deposit you can get 100% up to $200 and 20 Free Spins. The second part is 50% up to $300 and another 20 Free Spins. On your third deposit you can claim another 50% up to $400 and 20 Free Spins. On your final deposit you’ll qualify for 50% up to $500 and 20 more Free Spins.

Oh, and did we mention all the Free Spins rewarded during the Welcome Bonus carry zero wagering requirement? We told you it was a good offer!

Daily Promotions

Casino Mate definitely does their part in offering special rewards to their customers. There are daily, weekly and seasonal promotions.

You can expect a variety of casino bonuses including Free Spins and regular Match Bonuses. They also often do prize-giveaways where you could win designer goodies, exotic holidays, or luxury vehicles.

VIP Programme

Casino Mate have their own unique VIP programme known as the Club Mate Programme. Unlike most casinos, you do need to apply to become part of the club. Simply email vip@casino-mate.com to find out if you qualify. Apparently, they review your loyalty, value, frequency and games to decide if you make the cut.

Move up through VIP levels and you’ll start to reap all sorts of rewards. Qualify for larger and quicker withdrawals, a dedicated VIP representative and of course, far better promotional offers.

Wagering Requirements

When you receive a bonus at an online casino, it is almost always linked to wagering requirement. This is especially true of Match Bonuses.

In the case of Casino Mate, you’ll need to wager your bonuses 50 times. In other words, if you get a $20 bonus, you’ll need to wager at least $1,000. Why at least? Well, wagering also counts differently depending on the games you play. Pokies usually count 100%, so that is where you would need to wager $1,000. If you want to wager on table games, you’ll need to wager considerably more. Table games contribute between 0% and 20%. So, either it won’t count at all, or you might need to wager much higher volumes.

Casino Games and Online Pokies

Offering more than the average online Casino, Casino Mate has a massive selection of games. There are over 800 games on offer.

Categories include TOP 12, New Games, Classic Slots, Video Slots, Jackpot, 3D Slots, Video Poker, Table Games, Blackjack, Roulette and Other Games.

As an added bonus, they have a really great search option to find the right game for you.

Pokies

You’ll find over 600 Pokies at Casino Mate. Three-reel, five-reel, progressive jackpots, 3D slots and pub classics. You’ll honestly struggle to find a casino with a bigger Pokie variety.

Their games come from a variety of game providers, each with their own selection and feel. It’s good to note that Microgaming have supplied many of their super popular progressive jackpot, including Major Millions and Mega Moolah. Their jackpot pokies often hit the multi-million-dollar mark.

Table Games

Casino Mate doesn’t just have a great selection of Pokies, they also offer plenty of variety when it comes to Table games. With plenty of variants of blackjack, roulette, craps, and baccarat. You are sure to find something to make your James Bond dreams come true.

Speciality Games

Next up, let’s talk about Speciality games. These are those unique games that just don’t fit in a box. The black sheep of the family, the quirky friend.

You’ll find plenty of Speciality games in Casino Mate’s lobby. The three main categories here are Keno, Bingo and old fashioned Scratchies.

Similar to a lottery, in Keno you’ll choose twenty numbers ranging between 1 and 80. Before playing make sure to check out the paytable to find out what is up for grabs.

Bingo isn’t just for old age homes. As the game moved online, it also took on a modern twist. In fact, it was one of the first casino games to be offered online.

Both games use Random Number Generators, so you know that they are completely fair.

You can also go ‘old school’ and place your bets on Scratchies. Scratchies are probably the most popular form of betting both on and offline. So, it’s definitely important for an online casino to include them in your offering. Give punters what they want!

Video Poker

Video Poker is often a winner in our books. Based on the rules of Poker but played at a much quicker pace. Since you aren’t betting against other players, you’ll get paid out based on your hand in relation to your bet.

There are plenty of games to choose from at Casino Mate. Always check the paytable before your first-hand. You can play for as little as $0.50 and for as much as $25. Giving you much more control than slots.

Banking Methods

The banking options at Casino Mate are as diverse as their game options. Casino Mate is all about choices.

Deposits

You can make deposits to your account via Credit or Debit Card, eWallets and Pre-Paid Vouchers. Methods include Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, Instadebit, iDebit, Paysafecard, ecoPayz, ePRO, NeoSurf and Zimpler.

The minimum deposit amount is $10. All deposit methods will be reflected in your Casino Mate account instantly.

Withdrawals

Not every deposit method is available to customers for withdrawals. It’s a good idea to check the terms and conditions before making a deposit to make sure you can withdraw using your preferred banking method.

At the time of writing you cannot make withdrawals using MasterCard, iDebit, paysafecard, ePRO, Neosurf or Zimpler. If you did make a deposit using one of these methods, you will have to withdraw your money via bank transfer, which will take between three and five days to clear.

Casino Mate has a withdrawal limit of $4,000 a week. It’s not ideal, but it’s also not strange for casinos to set withdrawal limits. They want to keep you around.

Your payout isn’t always immediate. The withdrawal time varies depending on your withdrawal method. eWallets take between one to three days, credit and Debit Cards have a waiting time of three to seven days. Bank transfers can vary between one and five days.

Creating an Account

Casino Mate have thankfully streamlined their signing up process. As soon as you open the casino page you’ll be met with the option to “Sign Up”. Click the button, fill out a few personal details and you’re ready to go.

If you want to play for real money, you’ll need to deposit into your account. Make a minimum deposit of $10 and you’ll be ready to go. Remember that if you make a minimum deposit of $20 within your first week after signing up, you’ll benefit from Casino Mate’s generous Welcome Offer.
