Kiwi Online Casino FAQ

August 23, 2016

What is the legal age for gambling in New Zealand?

The minimum age to be able to gamble for real money in New Zealand is 18.

Is it legal for New Zealand players to play at online casinos in the real money mode?

Yes. There is currently no law that prohibits New Zealand players from being able to play at online casinos for real cash prizes. However, most NZ online casinos are operated from outside of New Zealand boarders, they are licensed in offshore jurisdictions and are controlled by foreign operators, which means that they do not fall under New Zealand jurisdiction.

Do I need to register an account to play at an online casino?

If you want to play in the real money mode at an online casino you will need to register a real money account and the simple online casino application process will take just a couple of minutes.

How do I deposit at Kiwi online casinos?

Head straight to the cashier section at the casino and choose from one of several reliable and perfectly secure Kiwi online payment options, some of which include Skrill, NETELLER, Visa, MasterCard, POLi and Ukash. You then need to either sign up to this chosen method, top up the payment method and then follow the simple instructions that apply to your chosen method.

How to I withdraw my winnings?

The withdrawal process is just as easy as the deposit process, but in reverse. Again, follow the instructions that apply to your chosen method. Deposits can be instant, but withdrawals can usually take up to 48 hours (or longer) to be processed.

Do I have to download any casino software onto my computer?

You don’t have to, but the best way to experience most Microgaming or Playtech casinos when using a Windows operating desktop or laptop computer would be to play from within the downloadable version of the casino. This online casino software is free to install and it generally contains more games and promotions than the instant flash version of the same casino.

What are online casino bonus wagering requirements?

This is really straight forward. When you accept a casino bonus, let’s just say a 100% matching deposit welcome bonus worth up to NZ$500, you couldn’t just withdraw that bonus cash straight back to your e-wallet or credit card otherwise online casinos would quickly go out of business. You generally need to wager anywhere from 20x to 50x times the bonus amount (and also the deposit amount) before you can withdraw.

Therefore if you deposit a total of NZ$25 (using the same example above), it means that you would instantly receive a NZ$25.00 bonus on top of your deposit and this would give you a total of NZ$50.00 to play with. If this bonus comes with a 25x wagering requirement (+ deposit amount) it means that you must wager NZ$650 (NZ$25.00 bonus cash x 25 wagering requirement, + initial NZ$25.00 deposit) before you could start the withdrawal process.
