Introducing to the Canadian market – Royal Panda casino. A truly pleasant place for some online gambles, Royal Panda features a great mix of casino games from multiple software providers, an excellent mobile platform, and a decent array of promotions throughout the year. With an international flavour, tailored to Canadian needs (particularly on the banking front), this is a great destination for spins, deals, dice throws and more.
While we’d like to say there are lots of free spins to get you started, this isn’t the case at Royal Panda. In fact, as far as we can tell free spins don’t feature heavily here at the moment, though they are a big feature in the Loyal Panda Shop, where you can trade in your loyalty points for free spins on different games.
Fruit Shop Free Spins – For example, you can trade in 200 loyalty points at the Loyal Panda Shop in return for 10 free spins, each worth $0.15. These free spins can be used to play on any of the site’s fruit games, i.e. the old-fashioned (mostly) three reel slots. Like the welcome bonus itself, and pretty much all bonuses here, the wagering requirement is 35X. Other similar offers that can be acquired with loyalty points include Gonzo’s Quest free spins (250 loyalty points for 10 free spins worth $0.20 each), Flower free spins (400 loyalty points for 10 free spins worth $0.30 each), Aloha! Cluster Pays free spins and Starburst free spins.
As for no deposit offers, there are currently none on offer. We’ve yet to encounter one at Royal Panda, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist – so stay alert.
Now for the welcome bonus itself, it’s one and only component is bonus money. And that is paid as a one-time match bonus.
Welcome Bonus — Bottom Line: The Royal Panda welcome bonus is as simple as they come at 100% up to $700. As a slots-focussed site, we at Slot Machines Canada, of course, prefer the welcome bonuses that at least come with some free spins, but what can you do? The reasonable 35X wagering requirement almost makes up for it.
One of the distinct advantages of a casino site powered by multiple gaming software providers is the variety dimension. This is particularly evident in the slots department, with an excellent range of all the types of slots, divided into two main categories: video slots and classic slots.
While heavy on the slots, there are of course a wide range of casino games available at Royal Panda, including jackpot games (many of which can be found under the slots categories), a live casino (with real-time action streamed to your screen), and tonnes of classics.
There is a Royal Panda sports site available, though the connection isn’t so easy to make. If you’re looking for a link, go to the homepage text and click from there. As for poker and bingo, we’ve got nothing to report.
In addition to the welcome bonus, there are always a handful of promotions being run on the Royal Panda site. On a regular basis you can find promos like:
All-round friendly critter that he is, the Royal Panda is needless to say mobile-friendly as well.
Royal Panda mobile is actually a browser-based experience. That is, there is no mobile casino app to download. Instead, simply browse to the Royal Panda website from your mobile device, and play direct from there.
Pretty much all mobile devices are compatible with the site, thanks to a well-designed UI. These include iPhone, iPad, Androids like Samsung Galaxy, and much more.
In total, there are 220 mobile games available. All of them can be played for real money wagers, and the vast majority (with the exception of a few jackpot and live games) can be played in fun practice mode as well.
Your same account details are used for both mobile and desktop play, and all banking and promotions work interchangeably for true convenience. Excellent stuff!
An online casino is really only as good as its banking options. Okay its games really, but banking is almost as important.
So for us Canucks it’s super pertinent that there be good local options. Royal Panda supports just about all the methods that we’re used to with a check on the major credit cards, check on NETELLER, paysafecard and Skrill, and check on iDebit, Instadebit, and Interac2Pay.
There are absolutely no fees for making a deposit, no matter which method you prefer, and all deposits are processed instantly.
Making withdrawals is also free. Processing times are dependent on the method you’re using, but in our experience reasonable in length, ranging anywhere from instant to up to 5 days.
There’s a reason why people love pandas, and there’s more than one reason why we love Royal Panda. True, it’s not the best site we’ve seen, with fewer bells and whistles than we’ve encountered elsewhere. But overall it has good game variety, heavy on the slots, fair bonus terms and an excellent mobile platform. Definitely worth a spin or more.
