Let me tell you something – reviewing Royal Panda Casino was a breath of fresh air after reviewing some of the less palatable casinos online.
Their casino stuck out to me because there’s a giant, smiling panda bear on their website. He looks really happy to be here. It makes you wonder if you’ll feel the same way after spending a few bucks at their casino.
And, I think you will.
Between my experience, and the experiences I’ve read about from others, I’ve come to the conclusion that Royal Panda is a super solid casino with decent offers, a great game selection and stellar reputation.
If you signed up now, I’m positive you won’t regret it. And that’s not hype.
But, I’ll understand if you need proof to back up those claims. Which is why we included all the proof you’ll need to decide if this casino’s right from you, ranging from who runs Royal Panda to the payment options they accept and games they offer.
You’ll find it all – and more – in our review below.
Let’s get started.
Royal Panda is owned and operated by Royal Panda Limited Casinos. They’ve been in business since 2014. They’re licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the Gambling Commission of Great Britain.
What immediately stood out about them is their use of a mascot. Few casinos bother to use one. But you might be wondering – why a panda?
Here’s how they explain it:
You definitely get some of those vibes after spending a little time on their website. Similar to the feeling you might get playing in a brick and mortar casino.
Their reputation is solid. They have a stellar reputation, as you can see from all the high ratings, reviews and comments from industry leading review and watchdog sites.
Here are a few examples:
It’s hard to argue with that, isn’t it?
But to be fair – to play both sides of the coin – I did check out the 9 complaints on AskGamblers.com. All but 2 of them were resolved. The other two were rejected; this usually means that the player was in the wrong – there was nothing to complain about – which led AskGamblers.com to close (or ‘reject’) the complaint.
The bottom line – there’s nothing to worry about here.
Residents from the following countries are prohibited from registering at Royal Panda:
You can contact support through:
There’s also a form on their website.
I contacted them with a question about their VIP program while writing this review. In less than 24 hours I received a detailed response. It was the only time I had to reach out for help, and the experience was a positive one.
Here are your payment options:
Limits range from $10 to $15,000, depending on the option you choose. There are no fees charged (from Royal Panda).
Limits range from $10 to $100,000, depending on the option you choose. There are no fees charged (from Royal Panda).
They sure are. Royal Panda will match your first deposit (100%) up to $100. You can use this to play (just about) any game you want – slots, video poker, blackjack and other table games.
The playthrough for this offer is a super low 35x the bonus – or $3,500, if you claim the entire amount. However, this playthrough only applies to slots, scratch cards and soft games. If you want to play video poker, table or live table games, then your playthrough will be 350x.
While I don’t like having to wager 10x more than slots players do, this is still relatively low compared to most other online casinos. If you want to play blackjack while clearing a bonus, Royal Panda is a good place to do it.
Bets are limited to $7.50 per round/spin. I’ve seen other reviews that complain about this limit relative to the bonus amount. I see their point, but disagree. It’s much higher than the $5-$6 wagering limits I’ve seen from other casinos.
It sounds like you can cash out both your winnings and bonus once you fulfill the playthrough requirements. However, you’ll have only 90 days to do it, or else any remaining bonus money will expire.
They have a couple of additional evergreen offers:
This offer has the same playthrough requirements as the welcome bonus above.
That’s it for offers, though they do run occasional limited time offers.
Yes, they do. They offer both – it’s called the Loyal Panda program.
You’ll receive 1 point for every $10 to $50 you spend. It depends on the game you play. Here’s a chart showing you what I mean:
|Slots||$10||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Roulette / live roulette||$25||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Table games||$50||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Video poker||$50||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Live casino||$50||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Scratchcards||$10||1 Loyal Panda Point|
|Softgames||$10||1 Loyal Panda Point|
Collect enough points and you can then exchange them for cash or Royal Panda-branded electronics, free spins, (non-branded) merchandise or plane tickets to Las Vegas. You can see all their options in their store.
The points you collect will also determine what your Loyalty Level is. There are 4 levels. Here’s a chart showing each of those levels and what it takes to get to each one:
|Loyalty level||Entry criteria||Description|
|Bronze||Default||All players are crowned at Royal Panda|
|Silver||15,000 LP Points||Next-level rewards for next-level players|
|Gold||45,000 LP Points||Gold-standard benefits for loyal players|
|Diamond||120,000 LP Points||Diamonds are a Loyal Panda’s best friend|
They don’t say anything about their VIP program other than what it takes to achieve each level. So, I sent them an email to see if they could clear this up for me.
Here’s what they had to say:
The no wagering requirement sounds really good to me.
Pawel also made it very clear that they take care of all their players. As a customer and/or follower and/or subscriber – no matter your VIP level – you’re privy to perks such as:
So, if you decide to become a customer, it’ll make sense to hop onto their newsletter and like them on Facebook. It’s a simple way to get access to exclusive offers.
Royal Panda works with a variety of software providers to bring you hundreds of the gambling industry’s best online casino games.
They work with heavy hitting companies such as:
The result are hundreds of games spread out across categories such as slots, roulette, blackjack, video poker, live dealer games, and more. Their games are available through their instant play browser casino, or your mobile device.
One thing that immediately stuck out to me is how well their casino is laid out. The navigation is so simple to understand, the newest of new newbies can find their way around. On their games page (when you click the ‘play now’ button at the top) you’ll see the following categories:
See what I mean? You can also sort games using the ‘popular’ or ‘A-Z’ filter. Like I said, it’s real simple to find your way around here.
Now, there’s one more software-related thing I want to share with you before I show you some of the games you can play.
They have an interesting feature I’ve not noticed on other casinos before – an option to have between 1-4 games open. I tested it out, playing both Copy Cats (slots) and blackjack simultaneously.
There are tons of games to choose from – I’m not sure if you can play ALL their games in the multi-window format. But it looks like your options span all their game categories (slots, video poker and table games), so I’m sure you can find a combo that works for you.
My only complaint about it is that the game screens are very small when you go from 1 to 2 games. And that’s even while playing on a 15” laptop screen. I think 4 windows/games would be too small for me, unless I had a larger screen OR two screens. It just wouldn’t be enjoyable otherwise, especially during bonus rounds or while playing games I’m not familiar with.
But it’s a neat feature nonetheless, and a great example of why online gambling trumps offline gambling.
Sure. I’ll use the same categories they do, and give you an idea of what’s available in each one.
You’ll notice there’s a good mix of slots here, ranging from your traditional casino-themed slots to your comic book themed slots, fairy tale slots and video game themed slots.
I’ve played Jurassic Park, Terminator and Hellboy before. I’d recommend you check those out if you’re into those themes. Copy Cats is fun, too. Other than that, I’d check out the Fairytale Legends slots. I think those sound interesting.
Notice all the variations you have here. I challenge you to find another casino who has this many unique variants, and not just a dozen of the same roulette game, with the only difference being stakes or graphics.
My comments from the roulette games above applies here, too. You have several unique variants, as opposed to games that are only different in terms of the stakes you can play.
There’s a lot of overlap between the roulette, blackjack, table and live dealer games section. That’s why this section looks smaller than it really is. If you enjoy all table games, and not just roulette, or not just blackjack, then this is the section for you.
Nothing new to add here. Like their other sections, there’s a lot of variety in a section where you’ll find more duplicate games and variants than unique options from other casinos.
Based on their game selection above, I sort of expected to see more video poker options than this. It’s average, but I think most people will be happy with it.
There you have it. We listed most of the non-slot games here, so if there’s something you don’t see, but want to play, there’s a chance they don’t have it.
But the opposite is true for their slots. We shared only a fraction of their slot titles. So, if there’s something specific you want to play, but don’t see in our list above, you’ll want to search their slot section to see if it’s there.
Last thing – I checked out their instant play casino from my laptop. But you can also use their instant play casino using your iPhone, iPad and Android powered devices. Or, you can use their mobile casino. Either way, you’ll have 220+ casino games to choose from.
Here are the things that stand out to me:
Here are some things I think they can improve:
Absolutely. This is an excellent choice, and probably the only casino most people reading this need to have an account with. It’d be nice to see more offers, but it sounds like they offer plenty to existing customers behind the scenes. So, I wouldn’t worry much about that.
The bottom line – if you’re looking for a reputable casino who offers lots of unique games from several software providers, then my opinion is that you should give Royal Panda a shot. Create your account now.
