We are going to admit that naming your online casino after a flightless bird does not instil a ton of confidence. Of all the animals that the owners could have chosen, why go for this one right? They could have gone for lions or pandas…wait a minute that has been done before.

Maybe naming your casino after the second tallest bird (after the ostrich) is not such as bad idea after all. It does create interest that is enough to get you to sign up to the casino and explore the platform.

Let’s look at all the points that make Emu Casino.


This is where things really do get better. Emu Casino has a fantastic design that is neatly laid out. Navigating to your favourite casino games is super easy and you certainly are provided with a decent choice of games. 

Welcome Offer

Providing a modest welcome offer that does the trick. No need to confuse you with $1000 + bonuses spread across endless steps and stages. Emu Casino offers a respectable $300 welcome bonus that is sufficient to get your casino journey started.

Online Pokies

Head over to the online pokies section and you will find all of your favourite classics including Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest and Tomb Raider. You can even opt for the progressive jackpots such as Mega Moolah, powered by Microgaming.

There is an impressive selection when it comes to live casino games as well. The games are powered by Evolution Gaming which means you get the best possible live dealer experience.

In total, you have a selection of about 360 games which may not seem like a lot, especially when other casinos are offering 1000+ but this is a case of quality over quantity.


You have quite a few options when it comes to accessing customer support. You can send them an email and expect to get a reply within 48 hours. We would advise you to go do down the live chat route instead.

Live chat functionality is available 24 hours and we found the customer service reps both professional and very knowledgeable. We did throw a few bouncers at them but they were able to tackle them effectively making their customer service department one of the best for Kiwis!


Emu Casino is a great casino that has been operating since 2012. In the last eight years several casinos have come and gone but Emu Casino has withstood the test of time.

The product is uncomplicated, the design simple and the game selection adequate. Add a welcome offer that makes sense and a customer support team that is eager to answer your queries and you have an online casino that soars (sorry!) above the competition.

We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Emu Casino as it truly deserves the status of Casino of the Month 2020 for June!
