What comes to mind when you think about Australia? BBQs? Surfing? Ayers Rock? Kangaroos? There is clearly a lot of unique things to
associate with this country, which is why its so puzzling that so few casinos have gone with such a strong theme. GDay Casino runs
with this Australian theme and states that it aims to be the most enjoyable premium online casino site youve ever come across
a bold statement, and one that Ugambling was keen to out to the test.
So, weve already established that theres a lot of source material available for an Australian-themed casino, and GDay Casino seems to have decided to use the Kangaroo. Honestly, we would love to be able to joke about the theming or inappropriate use of some elements, but it somehow all seems to it together in a tasteful manner that seems fitting for an online casino. The background image of a warm sunset in the outback is easy on the eyes, the logo is recognisable without being over the top, and things like labelling the slots as Pokies is a nice touch, too. The only real fault Ugambling could see was the woman on the live dealer banner, whose hat has clearly been photoshopped in place.
Turning to more serious matters, the header and main navigation bar is nicely proportioned so as not to take-up too much space, while the games categories are also positioned nicely to the upper-left of the screen. Some of the nice theming is lost when viewed on a mobile phone/tablet, however this online casino is still very usable, with little of the functionality being lost in the transition from pc to mobile.
Players looking to have a good days gaming with GDay Casino will not be disappointed. There is a very good selection of Pokies (slots), backed up by a smaller selection of classic casino and live dealer games. Despite what the poorly photoshopped image in the lobby may suggest we did not encounter any live dealers wearing a bush hat, which was slightly disappointing, although understandable.
Navigation through the many games is made as easy as possible through a generous number of categories to filter by, a search box as well as a filter for games providers. Its very clear from the category filter that slots are the main attraction in GDay Casino, as there are 4 categories of them to search through New Games, Bonzer Pokies, Pokies, Jackpot Pokies. For those players who are not familiar with Australian colloquialisms, these translate as New Games, Good Slots, Slots, and Jackpot Slots.
Speaking of the New Games category the list of new games seems to be very generous and is updated on a regular basis. At the time of writing, we were able to find the very latest slots from both Microgaming and Next Gen, while there was also a lot of games from the likes of NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, and Nyx. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, Ugambling was unable to find any Australian themed slots, despite a couple being available from Rival and Microgaming GDay Casino have missed a trick, there.
Deposit and withdrawal methods in GDay Casino are typical of what one would expect to find. Credit/debit cards, Skrill, Neteller, PaySafe Card, and DotPay are all available to players, providing a good selection of safe & secure methods for everyones taste. There is a minimum deposit value of £/€10 and a minimum withdrawal value of £/€20, which is perfectly acceptable to us.
Accounts must be verified within 72 hours of depositing, otherwise they may be suspended, and withdrawals are not permitted until verification checks have been satisfied. We found that are account was fully verified within 24 hours of submitting the required information, so there is no need to worry in that respect.
A live chat service is advertised by GDay Casino, although Ugambling did not find anyone living at the other end when we clicked on the Chat Now button. Despite a message saying that we would be served within a minute, no customer support agents ever materialised, leading us to believe that we had perhaps tried to contact them outside of office hours. The website says that the service is available 24/7 but we have been unsuccessful in verifying this perhaps there are real life Australians at the end of the live chat service, who are only available during Australian working hours? We can only speculate.
Live chat (or lack of it) aside we were unable to locate any evidence of a contact telephone number but the support email address was clearly advertised for those keen to get in touch with the casino. All our emails were responded to within 24 hours, so were happy to say that support at this online casino was perfectly adequate a working live chat would have been a bonus.
We will be very up front, here, and say that GDay Casino offers what, on the face of it, appears to be a very generous welcome promotion to players more so than many other online casinos. Players should be aware that the wagering requirements attached to this promotion effectively mean that they will have to wager the value of a mid sized family home before they are able to make a withdrawal on any winnings made from bonus money assuming the maximum bonus value is claimed.
