Cookie Live Casino Review

Since its launch in 2020, Cookie Casino has been making waves in the online casino world. Even though it's relatively new, it's already one of the most popular online casinos amongst New Zealand players.

A big reason for that is Cookie Live Casino. An enormous selection of live blackjack, live roulette, live baccarat, game shows and more from two outstanding software providers is something you will struggle to find elsewhere and it's well worth sinking your teeth into. What’s more, this live casino offering comes with a license from the Malta Gaming Authority, so you know you’re dealing with a regulated operator.

Excellent bonuses, even after the welcome bonus Mastercard not an option for NZ players
Players can add games to their favourites for quick access

Cookie Live Casino Welcome Bonus

The welcome bonus at Cookie Live Casino isn't specifically a live casino bonus, but it can be used there. Your first deposit two deposits receive a match bonus - the first deposit is matched 100% up to $150, while the second is matched 50% up to $150. You will also receive a total of 220 free spins on sign up to use on specific slot games too.

The bonus funds as part of this excellent welcome bonus can be used on live dealer games, which we were very pleased to find out as that isn't always the case. As with all casino bonuses, there are conditions attached such as a 40x wagering requirement. Different games' contributions are weighted differently too, so as always we recommend checking the terms and conditions so you're entirely up to speed.

Live Casino Promotions and Offers

At the time of review, there are no specific live casino promotions at Cookie Casino. They do offer players great casino bonuses like free spins, cashback deals and reload bonuses, but these are perhaps more applicable to the casino section. You may also find leaderboard promotions from time to time too.

We recommend opting in to receive marketing info by email and mobile to ensure you get notification of any new live casino promotions.

Live Casino Games Offered by Cookie Live Casino

There are hundreds of live dealer tables to choose from at Cookie Live Casino. As you would expect from any of the best live casino sites in New Zealand, there are plenty of different types of roulette and blackjack to choose from, with multiple tables available for many of these. The different tables will cater for players of all budgets, as you will find games available for as little as a few cents per spin, with far bigger bets accepted for those looking to stake more.

Some of the most popular titles available at Cookie Live Casino include favourites like Deal or No Deal, Craps, the always-popular Dream Catcher and Lightning Dice. No matter what you're looking for, you'll certainly find a live dealer game you like.

Table Limits and Variety

With such a huge amount of live dealer games to choose from, there are games available for players will all kinds of bankrolls. Evolution's Lightning Roulette has a minimum bet of 40c, with bets up to $4,000 accepted. You will find games with higher minimum and maximum bets too, such as Classic Speed Blackjack, with a minimum bet of $10.

To view any game's accepted stake range, simply launch the game and the minimum and maximum will be shown in the top left of the game window.

Range of Software Providers

When you see a live casino powered by Evolution Gaming you know that you’re in for a top-quality live casino experience. Not only does Cookie Live Casino offer games from Evolution Gaming, it also offers Kiwi players Pragmatic Play live dealer games. By pairing up with two of the very best live casino software providers around, players are treated to a huge amount of games of the very best quality.

Cookie Live Casino Desktop/Mobile Experience

Cookie Live Casino is split into seven sections. These are Live, Roulette, Poker Games, Blackjack, Baccarat, Others and Game Shows. Clicking on any of these options will show you only that particular type of game. The 'Live' option will display all live games. If you don't feel like browsing, use the search option to look for a particular game.

The lobby is what you would expect from an online live casino. A certain number of games will appear so as not to overload the site and keep it running quickly and smoothly. A button at the bottom of the game list will reveal more games if you want to see them. Hovering over any game will show you a heart icon which can be clicked to add the game to your favourites. You'll also see the logo of the software provider for the game, although since the live dealer games are all provided by either Pragmatic Play or Evolution Gaming, it's win-win.

Every live casino game at Cookie Live Casino takes place on a crisp, HD stream. A number of settings within each game give you control over the stream and audio quality.

Like any top online casino, Cookie Live Casino was built with mobile in mind. You can join the action wherever you go, either through your mobile device's browser or by downloading the app. The great social aspect of a table chat and the stream connecting you directly to the dealers will be available right in the palm of your hand.

Regardless of the device you use, you're sure to have a fun, slick live casino experience at Cookie Live Casino.

Cookie Live Casino VIP Program

The VIP program at Cookie Live Casino is really fun, with 30 different VIP levels, each named after a type of sweet treat. As you stake and earn CPs – the Cookie Casino equivalent of loyalty points – you will move up to higher levels and become eligible for greater rewards including cash back offers. Some of the rewards are truly outstanding, with some of the cash back bonuses worth thousands. You will, of course, need to wager accordingly in order to reach these levels.

The VIP program is not specific to live casino and can be used on all casino games at Cookie Casino.

Cookie Live Casino Responsible Gambling Features

Cookie Casino offers players a wide selection of responsible gambling tools in order to keep their play under control. Deposit limits, loss limits and wager limits can prove very useful for playing within your means. Other options include reality checks, cooling off periods and self-exclusion.

You'll also find useful links to third parties who can provide additional support to those who could benefit from it, such as Gamblers Anonymous, GamCare, Gampling Therapy, Gamblock and CyperPatrol.

Our Verdict

Despite being a relatively new casino site, Cookie Casino’s Live Casino already ranks among the best. A great welcome bonus is a fantastic reason in itself to open a new account, but the great selection of games provided by Pragmatic Play and Evolution Gaming is another excellent incentive. Don't let the fun cookie theme fool you, this is a seriously good live casino.
