While being relatively new to the online sports betting scene, since its inception in 2019, Slottica Sport has quickly grown a large fan base with its wide range of sports, betting options, and tempting promos.
On top of their sports betting operation, there is also a casino, slots, cybersports and eSports on offer — and it’s all completely legal for Kiwis to play.
We’re going to take a look at Slottica Sports from a Kiwi perspective, so read on to see if we reckon Slottica Sports is worth your attention.
● Good odds market
● Great in-play betting and stats
● 24/7 support for Kiwis
● No dedicated VIP programme
In today’s day and age, no reputable sports betting site is going to lure you in without a decent welcome bonus. Slottica Sports may not have been around for long, but they’re willing to offer a very, very good welcome bonus to get your attention.
If you deposit $25 or more, Slottica Sports will match your deposit right up to 200%. Now the crazy thing here is that there is no upper limit to what they will match — we checked with their support team, and theoretically, you can deposit as much as you want, and they will match your deposit 200%.
Deposit $25, get $50 in bonus bets. Deposit $500, get $1,000 in bonus bets. That’s a giant welcome bonus, but as always, there is some small print, which we went through for you:
● Slottica Sport’s Welcome Bonus is only for new Kiwi players.
● You must claim the Slottica Sports free bet within 7 days of signing up.
● The Slottica Sports free bets can only be used on odds of $1.55 or higher.
● The maximum bet when using your bonus funds must not be more than $50.
In our Slottica Sports review, we found some of the currencies might have Euros instead of NZ dollars — don’t worry about it, it’s just a typo — just read them as Kiwi Dollars.
Lastly, this special offer is only available through the link from our page, as we negotiated a great deal with Slottica Sports.
Slottica Sports lets you take advantage of a ‘Cashout Bonus’ and get your money returned to your account. Make adjustments to your bet before the outcome of the event is known — delete a single bet as well as numerous bets.
Get up to 55% cashback on bets that didn’t win. For example, 1 event in a multiple bet will bring you 1.5% cashback, 3 events in a multiple bet will bring you 3% cashback and so on. This promo offer from Slottica Sports even goes as high as 20 events in a multiple bet will bring you 55% cashback!
Here you can choose to take a chance to win even more on your sports bets. All you have to do is take a chance on a multi-bet on two or more games. Again, 2 events in a multiple bet will bring you a bonus of 1%; 3 events in a multiple bet will bring you a bonus of 3%, and so on. You can receive up to 20 events in a multiple bet, which will bring you a bonus of 100%
Now for the fine print, all bets in this promo must be at odds of $1.40 or more.
As you might have guessed, Slottica Sports, like most sports betting sites outside of New Zealand, is based in Europe. That being said, Slottica Sports has a smorgasbord of sports on offer, covering everything from kiwi favourites, like Rugby or EPL betting, to sports that you might not have even known you could bet on.
For instance, if you want to spice up your sports betting life, have a crack at these options:
● Ski Jumping
● Specials (e.g. BBC sports personality of the year)
● Gaelic football
● Bare-knuckle Boxing
● Basketball 3 on 3
● Ice Hockey
● Table Tennis
● Water Polo
For a sports betting site that only started in 2019, we have to say, we’re pretty happy with what Slottica Sports has on offer. There are enough juicy promos onboard, and their overall feature list is awesome. Compared to other new betting sites in New Zealand, Slottica’s sports betting product is impressive.
At the top of the page, you can see the event list, as well as what is playing live. Clicking through to a live game in the United Premier Soccer League, we were treated to a bunch of real-time betting options ranging from next goal bets to handicap bets. There was also a great live graphic of the pitch, which showed the movement of the ball, player placement, and who was in possession. You could also see all of the other relevant information like yellow cards, attacks, shots at goal, etc.
There probably won’t be that depth of features and information in smaller games or leagues, but it shows that the big games can have a lot of added value to your viewing experience.
If you’re a horse or greyhound racing fan, Slottica Sports might not be for you, as they don’t offer anything in terms of ponies or dogs on the track.
As we mentioned earlier in the promo section, there are cash out options, which you’ll be able to see on your betslip. There are also accumulating bonuses on multi-bets.
The betslip is on the right-hand side of the page, and you can choose for it to sit in one place, or float around at the top right. Within the betslip, you can see your current bets, betting history, and your favourites.
In-play betting, or live betting, is a popular feature at Slottica Sports. In play betting is available for almost every sport, with live selections changing in real-time. Again, the stats and options won’t be as abundant in the smaller games, but the big games have more stats than you can shake a stick at.
As for live streaming video, Slottica Sports has a nice surprise for you, and that’s live streaming on selected games. Normally most sports betting sites simply can’t afford to buy the rights for live video streaming, so it’s really nice to see it here. We were able to watch a WNBA match live onscreen, which meant we didn’t even have to turn on the telly to enjoy the game. To find the live video streams, there is a small TV icon next to the game under the live event list.
Hey, we get it, the internet is a big place and signing up for a sports betting site that is outside of New Zealand can be a bit daunting. While they might be a far way from home, we wanted to go through the signup process from a Kiwi perspective to show you exactly how it all works.
We signed up for Slottica Sports from our computer here in New Zealand, and here’s what it looked like:
As soon as you’ve signed up, a screen will pop up offering you a few things. At the top of this screen is your invitation to get the 200% welcome bonus with your first deposit — click on Go on with the offer to take advantage of this.
The signup process for Slottica Sports is right up there with the quickest and easiest in the industry, and shouldn’t take you more than two minutes.
A quick note though — make sure you enter your name and birth date exactly as it is on your passport or driver’s licence. When you go to withdraw your winnings, Slottica Sports will ask you for some photo ID (to verify it’s really you), so you want to make sure the details you enter match up with your ID details.
|Payment Method||Deposit Amount||Withdrawal Amount||Withdrawal Time|
|Skrill||US$10 min||US$6 min||Up to 24 Hours|
|Neteller||US$10 min||US$6 min||Up to 24 Hours|
|VISA||US$10 min||US$6 min||1-3 Days|
|MasterCard||US$10 min||US$6 min||1-3 Days|
A reminder — when you cash out, you will be asked to provide your photo ID. This is totally normal and, really just basic security for any decent sports betting website. It's there for your safety, to ensure that you're the one taking out your money, not somebody else who learned your password. We would be concerned if they did not include this step, since it would imply that they don’t really give a toss about your security.
In our experience, withdrawal times are much faster than what we've stated here, but those timeframes should give you an idea of how long you'll have to wait.
When you’ve got a live online casino, online slot machines, eSports, virtual sports, and finally our beloved sports betting all on one website, things can get messy.
Luckily though, Slottica Sports has done a great job of keeping everything clean and tidy, and it’s pretty hard to get lost.
At the top of every screen, you can choose from all these great options. At the top right you can see your balance, check your promotions/offers, and go into your profile.
In the sports betting area, all of the available sports are down the right-hand side. It’s a pretty standard layout, and that’s because it works. Everything is bright and clear so you should be able to find what you want very quickly.
There is a mobile app for Slottica Sports, but it’s only available for Android devices, and you can only get it from the Slottica Sports website as opposed to the Google Play Store.
If you look at the top of the Slottica Sports page, there is a link to download the mobile app. You have two options — the first is to download the game by browsing the site from your phone, and the second is a QR code you can scan from your phone’s camera as you browse on your computer.
There is even a little bonus if you deposit $3 from the app once you download it.
The app itself is good, but apart from that small bonus on your first deposit, there isn’t a whole lot going on in the app that you wouldn’t get from the mobile website.
It’s up to you, of course, but we found either option is pretty good in our use.
Again, Slottica Sports haven’t been around for ages, but they’ve managed to keep their books in order with some really competitive betting odds. And to be honest, they have to, just to keep up with all of the other players in the sports betting field.
All of the odds change quickly with the market and we’re pretty much on par with other major sports betting sites.
By default, the odds are set to decimal, but at the top-right of the page, you can change them to fractional, American, Hong Kong, Malay, or Indo.
As we’ve mentioned, like nearly every sports betting site, Slottica Sports is based in Europe, so it’s a good thing they have 24/7 live chat support — it would be a bugger if Kiwis had to cater for European timezones.
We contacted them through their online chat feature (which is easily accessible on the right-hand side of every page), and we were chatting with their support team in less than a few minutes.
All in all, Slottica Sports had a good customer support experience, so we don’t expect you’ll be left in the dark if you run into any issues.
If Slottica Sports falls behind in any way, it’s really only that they don’t have a proper VIP programme. We imagine that their thinking is that players have a lot on offer with all of the promos and betting features, that a VIP programme isn’t really that necessary.
And in a way, we kinda agree with them. In our opinion, there is enough going on at Slottica Sports that we don’t think you’ll miss having a VIP programme too much at all.
The whole idea of chucking a few bucks on a game is that you add a bit of fun to the sports experience. There might be times, however, where it can get out of hand for some punters.
Thankfully, Slottica Sports has a good range of tools and advice that can help you get your betting habits back to healthy.
If you scroll down to the bottom of any page on Slottica Sports, there is a link that will send you through to their responsible gambling section. Here you can find some questions to ask yourself, and links through to gambling support organisations.
They also have a link where you can temporarily exclude yourself from gambling at Slottica Sports for 7 days. We would have like to have seen a few more options such as deposit limits, but overall we were happy with Slottica Sports being a responsible operator.
For a sports betting site that hasn’t been around for too long, they sure do have their stuff together. We really enjoyed all of the interesting sports they had on offer, live video streaming, and a bunch of cool promos to keep you coming back for more.
The welcome bonus is also extremely generous — in fact, it’s probably one of the best out there.
If you’re looking for a new place to punt, we definitely recommend you take a look at Slottica Sports by click through on the Bet Now link on this page.
