Spin Samurai Casino Review
SpinSamurai is a recent addition to the world of Australian-facing online casinos, having only opened its virtual doors in 2020.
A holder of the Curacao license and operated by Dama NV, it’s a Casino with a pretty straightforward strategy to attract customers on board: offer more games than any of its competitors.
That’s its plan of attack and they’ve certainly scored very highly in that regard. But how does this casino inspired by Japanese sword-wielding warriors fare when it comes to the other important metrics? Let’s find out.
Let’s go through what’s ‘on the house’ when you first sign up and beyond.
This one here is a bit more complex than your average one. So as fans of the cult TV show Allo, Allo might appreciate, it’s a case of: “listen very carefully as I shall this only once.”
The straightforward thing to do is to get the maximum bonus on each of your first three deposits, known as the High Roller option. That works out at a matched bonus of 100% on your first, 75% on your second and 50% on your third. The problem with that is you’d need to deposit between 300 AUD and 1500 AUD to claim those bonus percentages.
So, if a minimum of 300 AUD is a bit steep, cast your eyes toward the Half Full Glass option. Your bonus goes up to 125%, 100% and 80% on your first three deposits respectively (which is good) but you must deposit between 80 AUD and 299 AUD in order to get it.
So less as a minimum amount (also good) but also less as a maximum amount (not so good). This one comes with 50 free spins on each of the first three deposits to be played on either Deep Sea or Four Lucky Clover, two of the better pokies out there.
Lastly, there’s the Half-Empty Glass option, which is for those on a budget. You’d only need to deposit 15-74 AUD to claim it, it’s 60/60/50% across your first three deposits but does come with a nice kicker. Taking this option sees you get 20% cashback in case of losses so there’s a decent safety net for you right there.
So, plenty of choice when it comes to picking the deposit bonus that best suits your needs.
Further bonuses and Loyalty Program
Everyone’s favourite day of the week is a special one here at SpinSamurai, too.
Deposit between 15-100 AUD on a Friday and a 50% bonus is headed your way, accompanied by 50 free spins. They’re on Deep Sea or Four Lucky Clover and you can keep on claiming this bonus every week, meaning you should put a little asterisk next to Fridays on your calendar, so you don’t forget.
The Loyalty Program here operates over 9 levels and is in line with the casino’s theme of Samurais. Over the course of six centuries in Japan, Samurais were of course fearless, honourable and loyal warriors hired and paid by wealthy landowners, who knew their way around a battlefield. It was only Samurais who were allowed to carry two swords at any time and boy, could they use them!
The more pokies you play, the more comp points you earn. In turn, the higher up the 10 levels you go and the better the rewards you get at each level. By the time you get to Level 8 or 9 (Chunin and Jonin) you can claim big daily deposit bonuses for big bucks. But there’s plenty of other good stuff to collect at the lower levels, too.
Casino Payment methods
Here at SpinSamurai they’re big on E-Wallets and as you’d expect from a Casino that was only born in 2020, cryptocurrencies.
Under the first category there’s ecoPayz, NeoSurf, Paysafecard and a few others. E-wallets are always recommended because they’re instant, have added levels of safety and anonymity and are easy to use.
For those who like cryptocurrencies, there’s Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin and Litecoin. APCO, UTORG and COINSPAID are also available.
It’s worth getting up to speed with max and minimum limits. You can’t withdraw any less than 20 AUD at a time and you can’t withdraw any more than 10,000 AUD in a week or 15,000 AUD in a month.
Withdrawals shouldn’t take any longer than 24 hours, except for the first one, where you’ll need to verify your account and prove that you are who you say you are.
As we started by saying, they certainly set the standard when it comes to the sheer volume of games. They have over 3700 in total including games from some of the industry’s best-known providers such as NetEnt, BetSoft, Platipus and Evolution Gaming.
Here are some of the ones you can look forward to.
Pokies come in all shapes and sizes these days with a load of different bonus features, themes and varying amounts you can win. You’ll surely find your favourites in no time but Beach Party Hot and Football Mania are both worth a look if you’re not too familiar with them.
You can play the ‘mechanical’ version of the likes of Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat if you wish. This is how you use to play these games before the introduction of Live Casino. It’s less personal and engaging than Live Casino but at times can be quicker.
This is another area where they’ve excelled. They have one of the biggest offerings of any Australian-facing Casino across all the major table games with the action screened from the likes of Malta, Sweden and London. Pick the rules, limits and Dealers who take your fancy and you’re away.
This is one of the areas where they need to improve. Live Chat is fine. An e-mail address where they get back to you within 24 hours is ok as well, but they really need to offer a phone line for emergencies. You’d think that’s a bare minimum these days.
Casino Review Overall
There are big welcome bonuses to collect and no shortage of games to play, which is its big selling point. In that regard there’s little or nothing to complain about.
But no casino nails it in its first year and there’s room for improvement in a few areas. The site design could do with some work, they need to sort out that phone line and some of the wagering requirements are a bit steep. But they’re just a few minor changes away from a top-class casino.
Does Samurai SpinSamurai casino accept Bitcoin
Yes, it does, in addition to Bitcoin Cash. Other cryptocurrencies available here as payment methods are Litecoin and Dogecoin. Cryptocurrencies are anonymous and instant so highly recommended.
Does SpinSamurai offer a loyalty program?
Yes, it does, it operates at nine levels, each level is named after a type of Samurai and the more points you earn from playing games, the higher up you go. The higher you go, the better the rewards.
Does SpinSamurai offer games from NetEnt?
Yes, it stocks games from NetEnt, the famous Swedish software provider. One of the quirkier games is new pokie Hell’s Kitchen featuring Gordon Ramsey. But there are lots more high-quality games from them. It’s quite rare that an Australian facing casino has games from NetEnt.
