PokieSurf Casino

Pokie Surf Casino has one of the most striking opening images we think we have ever seen at a site like this. The site's logo looks like a surfboard, and we get an aerial view of the beach with plenty of surfboards lined up and ready to go. But this is a site focusing on casino games, as you'd expect, so once you've had your fill of the theme, it's time to check out the features of Pokie Surf. We'll do that below.

Exploring the software available at Pokie Surf Casino

Scrolling through the games area revealed many familiar titles. We spotted games from NetEnt and Pragmatic Play, for example. Microgaming titles also appeared there. We spotted an unusual icon in the categories for games too - one that shows two vertical lines with a dot on each. If you select that, you can see the names of many other providers as well. It's easy to do when you know how, and you'll spot brands including Aristocrat, Hacksaw Gaming, and Playtech among others.

There's plenty to discover inside the lobby

There is, and you can choose to view the games on offer from just one of those developers if you wish. Aside from that, you can look at different game categories, including table games, arcade games, and of course, the slots (or pokies in this case).

Look for the orange signup button to join the casino

This is your best bet as it takes you right to the page you need to create an account. It's good to explore for a bit first though.

Signup restrictions to note at this casino

Pokie Surf has a message at the top of the site, confirming the minimum age is 18. The use of the word pokies also confirms that the site welcomes Australians, since that is the word that they use for slot games. We have some other limitations to note inside the terms and conditions, which mention that you cannot play if you are in the US, the UK, or several named European countries and others around the world. Check point 2.1.2 in the legal requirements area of your account in the terms to get more information on this aspect. Canada is not named there, so it looks good for you if you live there. We can also assume you're fine if you live in New Zealand. Other than that, make sure your location allows for real online gambling before you join Pokie Surf.

Access all the games from the relevant orange menu button

The homepage provides you with several options inside a large orange menu bar. You can reach all the games from there. There are several categories to explore, and we were pleased to see arcade games included alongside the slots and table games. You can also check out their new and hot categories, along with choosing the providers from their collection as we explained before.

You'll spot lots of familiar slots in their collection

Pokie Surf provides famous slot games including Blood Suckers, Wolf Gold, Starburst, and Break Da Bank. You can match those with some of the most famous brands in their collection as well. With many providers included at PokieSurf Casino, you can also expect to see many games that are new to you.

Look for 'demo' if you'd like to play some free games

Lots of titles do have this option, and you should see it below the 'play' option if the game offers it. If it doesn't, you won't see that option.

Members can then access all the paid games

The demos should help you work out which titles you would most like to play. Once you have set up your account and made a deposit, you can switch to real play for those games you liked, and which suit your preferences in terms of affordability.

The diamond leads to the new slot games

Look for the little logo next to each game category. When it comes to looking for the newest slots, these will appear in the new category, represented by a sparkling diamond.

Promotions appear in their own category too

Look for the orange menu option to find this area. The welcome bonus appears first, which involved 150% of your deposit plus 100 spins, with 20 spins delivered each day for the first five days that you are a member of the site. There are three other deposit bonuses to follow on from that one, so this is a cool welcome deal to be aware of. Watch for any other promotions on that page in future as well.

Tournaments appear a little further down the homepage

You'll get more information on these when you sign up, of course, but there were weekend and warm-up tourneys available when we checked out Pokie Surf. There is also a tournaments section in the menu near the bottom of the website.

There is no sign of a list of casino winners

This doesn't appear at too many casinos, in our experience. So, we must simply hope they're out there enjoying their prizes, right? Games featuring jackpot amounts give those amounts clearly on the title screen for the game, shown in Australian dollar.

There is no info on rewards

With no VIP or rewards page to check out, we guess the casino does not yet offer anything like this.

Available on mobile devices too

The lower menu provides links to pages for iPhone casinos and Android casinos. However, these aren't relevant to the actual casino. We found it easy enough to launch the site on a mobile browser, and with no sign of any mobile apps to download, this looks like the easiest route to take.

Play without registration if you choose the demo games

We attempted a few demo titles to see whether we would be asked to log in. This didn't happen, so we guess you are able to play the demos without an account, thanks to the way the casino is presented.

Is this an instant play casino?

Yes, we did not find any downloadable software anywhere in view.

Is there a chance you could become an affiliate?

Yes, you can view the bottom menu on the site to see a link that says For Affiliates, followed by an email address to write to if you want to know more.

There are no sportsbook features at this casino

PokieSurf sticks to pokies and other casino games and doesn't muddy the waters by offering sporting bets or racebook features.

They do not provide a blog for players to read

There are some articles shoehorned onto the bottom of the homepage if you want to read more about the site and the available pokies there. However, they do not have a specific area reserved for blog posts.

There are no live dealer games at present

You can visit the table games area to see their small collection of table games, but there are no live titles in there.

How to make a deposit

We have logos for Visa and Mastercard at the foot of the casino, but no other methods are mentioned. We did not find a banking page either, although some of their FAQs do cover withdrawal topics.

What do you need to know about making a withdrawal?

Some withdrawal queries are answered in the FAQ section, including one on fees. The casino does not charge any, and they have created a bonus to cover the cost of fees if you are charged any by the payment provider.

Bitcoin isn't mentioned anywhere

We didn't see any evidence of any other virtual currencies on the site either.

Is it easy to seek help if you need it?

They have a support section you can access from the top and bottom of the site. This includes information on their live chat and email support facilities. Live chat is accessible from the bottom right of the page you are on, too. Below the contact methods, you'll see the FAQs we mentioned just now.
