Grand Reef is an excellent option for New Zealanders to play roulette online – they have a wide range of roulette games available a decent bonus system and also offer play in NZ$.
Grand Reef Casino is powered by Playtech and their games do seem to capture some of the excitement you experience in a land-based casino – the anticipation of where the ball is going to land is captured very nicely with the excellent graphics of their wheels.
Grand Reef offer several variations of roulette – European, American and French are all available, they also offer a very nice Premium Roulette Pro, which has great graphics and offers all the French bets in addition to the standard European ones – I would suggest that this is probably the pick of the single player roulette games available at Grand Reef.
In addition to the these single player variations they also offer Multiplayer Roulette (French and European) which enables you to sit down round a virtual table and player with other Aussie and Kiwi punters… this is quite a nice way to experience online roulette and certainly takes away any doubt about games being ‘fixed’ as you’ve got everyone round the table betting on different outcomes – some of which are winners and some of which are not.
There is also the option to play Live Roulette – this is broadcast live within the casino from a physical space where a team of glamorous croupiers spin the wheel for real while you bet on the outcome… This is also multiplayer and provides great interaction with other players and the dealer alike. Its great fun and nice to be able to get that authentic casino experience once in a while… The only downside is that having played virtual, single player roulette online, you’ll find Live Roulette a little slow…
Grand Reef has a well thought out welcome bonus that rewards your first four deposits in the following way:
• First Deposit Bonus: 100% bonus to NZ$25
• Second Deposit Bonus: 30% bonus to NZ$75
• Third Deposit Bonus: 60% bonus to NZ$150
• Fourth Deposit Bonus: 90% bonus to NZ$225
As always important to read all the Ts & Cs yourself (there’s too many to mention here)
This is one of the real plus areas for Grand reef, they offer a free phone number from New Zealand – 0800 4460 155 and respond very quickly to email queries. It’s an operation that seems well equipped to deal with Kiwi players.
There are a number of ways to deposit that suit New Zealanders – Visa, MasterCard, Poli, UKash, moneybookers and Neteller are all available and overall the casino handles all banking queries with the thorough and serious nature that they should.
