Royal Panda Casino Review
Last updated: 22 February 2022
Royal Panda is arguably one of the most recognisable online casinos that was established back in 2014. Three years later, the casino became a part of LeoVegas International, another reputable casino group that operates LeoVegas Casino.
Royal Panda Casino used to own gaming licences from both UKGC and MGA, but made a business decision to stop targeting the UK in January 2020 and instead shifted their focus towards emerging markets Canada, India, Japan, Brazil, Finland, Norway and New Zealand.
The casino only allows players from around 40 countries to register real money accounts, but if you are on the accepted list, you will be in for a real treat, no doubt about that. As of April 2021, German residents are no longer able to open accounts or play at Royal Panda. In December 2021, their Austrian neighbours were also removed from the Accepted Territories list. To find out more about the reputable operator, continue reading our Royal Panda review.
- Accepted Territories: Aruba, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Chad, Chile, Congo, Curacao, Djibouti, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Finland, Gabon, Honduras, Iceland, India, Ireland, Isle of Man, Japan, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Malawi, Malta, Monaco, Namibia, Nauru, New Zealand, Niger, Norway, Peru, Samoa, Sint Maarten (Dutch part), Togo, Turks and Caicos Islands.
Royal Panda Casino is one of our personal favourites at CBM due to fast account verification, very short pending period and quick withdrawals. The casino also supports a fair share of global and local deposit methods, including Sofort, AstroPay, Boleto, Euteller, Venus Point, Interac and iWallet.
However, their customers only have six cashout options at their disposal, which is hardly a perfect scenario. If you use Skrill, Neteller or credit/debit cards for your deposits, you’ll be able to cash out via the same method, but if you don’t, bank transfer will be your only withdrawal option.
Royal Panda is, however, an excellent option for high rollers, allowing deposits up to €50,000 per transaction and withdrawals up to €100,000, with no charges imposed to deposits or withdrawals.
- Deposit methods: Sofort, Instant Banking, DineroMail, AstroPay Card, Visa, Mastercard, Paysafecard, Boleto Bancario, Neteller, Skrill, SafetyPay, Trustly, Giropay, Euteller, AstroPay Direct, Boku, ecoPayz, iDebit, Instadebit, Venus Point, Zimpler, iWallet, Interac, MuchBetter, Neosurf, Pay4Fun.
- Withdrawal methods: Bank Transfer, Skrill, Neteller, Visa, Mastercard, Maestro.
Software & Games
The game portfolio at Royal Panda Casino has improved considerably since the casino became a part of LeoVegas group, meaning RP customers are now pretty much spoilt for options in the game lobby.
There are some 80 studios providing the games in the casino, from the largest ones such as NetEnt, Microgaming and Play’n GO all the way to up-and-coming brands like 4ThePlayer, Crazy Tooth and Rabcat, to name just a few.
And while there are over 3,000 slots on offer, the selection of table games is less than impressive. You do have the option to play up to four games at the same time using a multi-screen feature.
You can filter the games by provider or category, and even view Hot and Cold slots to see which games have been awarding larger payouts the previous week or month. Royal Panda also launched a jackpot network called RoyalJackpot. The progressive jackpot prizes are available in select jurisdictions (CA, PE, CL, IE, NO, FI, IN, JP, NZ, BR, ROW). You can find the games tied to the jackpot in the “Exclusive Jackpot” section added to the lobby. Pick any of more than 100 games to play for a chance of winning one of four progressive jackpots.
We were genuinely looking forward to the Royal Panda live casino review as we are big fans of live dealer tables. Having spent hours trying out the games, we are happy to report our findings.
There are no fewer than four live dealer providers here, and each definitely has a lot to offer. Evolution offers an amazing array of live dealer games, with Monopoly Live and Crazy Time arguably the most popular. Authentic Gaming is a Live Roulette specialist, bringing live action from various land-based establishments.
With Andar Bahar and Teen Patti some of the latest additions, Ezugi will appeal to players from India, whereas Pragmatic Play also has high ambitions with Mega Sic Bo and few other interesting titles.
Bonuses & Promotions
New players at Royal Panda can claim up to €1,000 in bonuses + 10 Free Spins on their first three deposits, with the first deposit bonus conditions listed below.
- Bonus: 100% up to £100 + 10 Free Spins
- Promo code: Not needed
- Minimum deposit: €10
- Max cashout: No maximum
- Wagering: 35x bonus
- Max bet: €7
- Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard deposits excluded
- Free Spins valid for 7 days
- Free Spins winnings added to bonus balance
The bonus is a pretty decent one, considering the wagering requirements are not that difficult to meet. However, bear in mind that bonus wagering requirements can only be met with cash balance bets, which is quite strange if you ask us.
There are few more interesting bonus deals you can claim at Royal Panda Casino such as Royal Wednesday Bonus, Bamboo Bonus and Lucky 21 promo. The loyalty program aptly named Loyal Panda is in place to award LP points that can later be exchanged for free spins, merchandise and more.
Long-term players will occasionally be offered special no-wagering bonuses as an extra incentive to keep playing in the casino.
Security & Support
Even if the casino no longer holds a UKGC licence, it has kept strict security protocols in place, boasting Comodo security seal and encrypting all information using Secure Socket Layer technology.
The customer support agents are available 24/7 and can be reached via live chat, email or phone. They are usually quick and very helpful with any issues you might have.
Meanwhile, Royal Panda boasts a very good record in resolving player complaints, even those involving a substantial amount of money. All this suggests you are unlikely to encounter any problems with this casino, but if you do, you will also have the option to raise your complaint with eCogra, RP’s official Alternative Dispute Resolution body.
- CBM Support Test: We spoke to Radek via live chat and were quite happy with how he handled everything. Radek explained there was no withdrawal lock option supported, but that players could lock their account if they are tempted to reverse a withdrawal request.
Time to wrap up our Royal Panda Casino review with a quick summary. Royal Panda is a trustworthy online casino that excels in most important areas we have evaluated and we only wish their accepted countries list was much longer.
RoyPan, as it is affectionately called in Japan, has a lot going for it, including lightning-fast withdrawals, high wagering limits, effective customer support and a wide array of both RNG and live dealer titles.
On the other hand, there are not too many shortcomings, although we would like to see more withdrawal options and improved bonus wagering conditions.
Taking everything into account, if you are lucky enough to be allowed to join this exclusive club, chances are you will have a great time playing casino games at Royal Panda.
