Joo Live Casino Review

New live casinos are popping up constantly in an attempt to compete with the best live casino sites in New Zealand. Most of them are really good, as they need to know their stuff.

There's no substitute for experience though. Joo Live Casino have been providing players with the best live dealer games since 2014 and offer New Zealanders a safe, trustworthy place to enjoy the excitement of a live casino.

Joo Live Casino Welcome Bonus

Joo Live Casino are offering Kiwi players a fantastic welcome bonus when they open a new account and make their first deposit. It's a 100% match deposit up to $300 on your first deposit. Your second deposit will receive a 50% bonus up to $450 and your third deposit nets a 50% bonus up to $750.

Each of the deposit bonuses carry 50x wagering requirements, which is a little higher than we're used to seeing at many NZ casino sites. For such a generous welcome bonus though, it's worth it. This welcome bonus is not a live casino-specific one, so the wagering can be done on regular casino games, pokies or live dealer games. Live casino games are weighted so they will contribute 5% of the stake towards the wagering requirements. It's also worth noting that unused bonus funds which have not met the wagering requirement criteria prior to the end of the promotional period will be lost. Be sure to check out the bonus terms and conditions prior to signing up.

Ideally, Joo Live Casino would have a tailor-made welcome bonus for live dealer games, but many online casinos don't allow bonus funds to be used on live casino at all, so they're certainly ahead of a lot of the competition in that regard.

Live Casino Promotions and Offers

Joo Casino run a weekly reload bonus each Monday. Deposit with the promo code MON40 and you will receive a 40% deposit bonus up to $150. Similar conditions to the welcome bonus apply, with regards to wagering requirements and game weighting.

A High Roller Reload bonus is also available to players who like to play for bigger stakes. This is a 50% bonus on your deposit and can be redeemed every two weeks. The minimum deposit for this bonus is $750, so it certainly lives up to its name.

The Bonuses tab on the Joo Live Casino site is where you'll find the latest promotions. These are updated regularly, so keep checking back and make sure you're set up to receive promotional emails – if you don’t want to miss out on great casino bonuses.

Live Casino Games Offered by Joo Live Casino

With close to 400 live dealer games available, Joo Live Casino should tick boxes for just about all live casino players. Whether you're a fan of the best live roulette casinos, blackjack, baccarat, sic bo or live poker, or more modern games like game shows and live pokies, you will find them here.

The games at Joo Live Casino are from the best software providers in operation. As such, every aspect of the gameplay is top class. The streams are high-definition, while moderated chat windows will add a social aspect to your play. Settings within the game can be adjusted to control your video and audio settings too, to ensure you have the best experience possible.

Your level of enjoyment while playing live dealer games is often dictated by the dealers or croupiers. The dealers at Joo Live Casino are very professional, engaging and of course, fair. Again, this is because Joo Live Casino only has games from top live casino software providers.

Table Limits and Variety

With so many games available, it's no surprise to find out that Joo Live Casino has a fantastic variety of live blackjack, live roulette and other live dealer games to choose from. Such a huge range means it will suit every kind of bankroll, no matter how big or small.

High rollers will find tables accepting wagers for thousands of dollars. More casual players will be able to stake a few cents on a live roulette spin – there's something for everyone. To see a table's minimum and maximum stake, simply open the game. The stream will launch, and in the corner, you'll see what bets are accepted.

Range of Software Providers

For many online live casinos, live dealer games from Evolution will give players the best possible options when it comes to game selection. That's why we were immediately pleased to see games from that provider available. The selection is much, much bigger than just that though. Joo Live Casino carries live dealer games from several other top live casino game providers, including Ezugi, Playtech, Pragmatic Play, Atmosfera and Lucky Streak.

These are the very best available, which means players will only see top quality live dealer games at Joo Live Casino.

Joo Live Casino Desktop/Mobile Experience

Even though there is no Joo Live Casino mobile app available, the site is completely optimised for all mobile devices. You'll just need to access the site via your browser. Whether you're using desktop, Android, iPhone, Windows phone or tablet, the layout of the site will be streamlined for optimum performance.

The Joo Live Casino lobby doesn't come with a lot of flashy features or extras. It's simple and straight to the point. To see what's on offer, go to All Games on the homepage and then Live Casino. Every live dealer game will be shown in one place and a game can be launched just by clicking on your chosen game's logo.

We found the search option very responsive. Enter the name or part of the name of a game and you'll see the best matches. For example, 'Roulette' will show results like Real Spooky Roulette and Indian Roulette. The only other option for browsing is to filter by software provider. A lot of players will be looking for Evolution games, so this will be a popular feature.

Perhaps having games split into sections would make navigation a little bit easier. However, the straight-to-the-point nature of this layout and lack of additional buttons keeps the spotlight firmly on the games themselves, while not having to load features means the Joo Live Casino lobby is responsive and super-fast.

Joo Live Casino VIP Program

Joo Live Casino does have a VIP program advertised on site, but VIP points are earned only by playing online pokies. There is no mention of whether or not live dealer game wagers would count towards this, but customer support via live chat suggested they do not.

We expect that high rollers will have their play rewarded with exclusive casino bonuses, an account manager and other VIP perks, but this isn't guaranteed.

Joo Live Casino Responsible Gambling Features

Joo Live Casino have all their bases covered when it comes to responsible gaming. A dedicated page can be accessed at the bottom of the homepage. It outlines the various responsible gaming tools available to players in order to help keep their play recreational and safe.

These tools include deposit, loss or wager limits, cooling-off periods or self-exclusion. There are also very useful links to organisations like GamCare and Gamblers Anonymous. The tools on offer can be controlled manually within the account section, or you can contact customer support for assistance.

Our Verdict

A vast selection of live dealer games, a welcome bonus rewarding your first three deposits and a generally user-friendly site are just some of the reasons you should open a Joo Live Casino account. They have been in operation for over seven years and continue to go from strength to strength. If you want an established, trustworthy live casino, then Joo Live Casino should be your next destination.
