BetBright is a solid online casino with a full range of games along with a sportsbook. The casino offers a wide variety of games and jackpots from Microgaming and a smaller selection from NetEnt. The Live Casino is equipped with rooms for some of the most popular table games. While BetBright accepts players from New Zealand, it is oriented towards the UK, and Kiwi players should note that the casino only accepts British pounds and does not work with e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller.
BetBright offers a Welcome Bonus package worth up to £500, split over your first 3 deposits. The details are as follows:
- 1st deposit: 100% up to £300
- 2nd deposit: 25% up to £100
- 3rd deposit: 50% up to £100
- Minimum qualifying deposit is £10
- Wagering requirement is 50x deposit for the 1st bonus
- Wagering requirement is 60x deposit for the 2nd and 3rd bonus
- Pokies, jackpots and keno contribute 100% to the requirement; other games contribute 0 to 8%
To be honest, there isn’t much to get excited about with this welcome bonus. The rates and amounts are quite standard, but the wagering requirement is rather high at 50x. What’s even more baffling is why the wagering requirement goes even higher to 60x when the deposit rate goes down to 25% and 50%. With requirements like these, it’s unlikely you’ll walk out with a profit from this bonus. However, that being said, it’s still a nice chance to get some free casino credit to give the myriad of Microgaming slots a spin, or to try your hand at some table games for fun.
BetBright comes in an easy instant-play platform, so you can get started right away without downloading software. It’s primarily a Microgaming casino, which means you can expect some of the best games on the internet. There are also pokies from NetEnt and IGT, so on top of titles like Immortal Romance, Game of Thrones, and Thunderstruck, you’ll also find Starburst, Aliens, Gonzo’s Quest and Siberian Storm – just to name a few. Needless to say, Mega Moolah, King Cashalot and other Microgaming jackpots can also be found here. There are various table games with high and low limit options, and the Live Casino offers an immersive experience with special rooms for Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker. Sports betting can also be done under BetBright’s roof, and it also comes with a live in-play betting option. As BetBright is UK focused, you’ll find good odds for sports like football, cricket, rugby and greyhound racing.
We have to say that BetBright isn’t shining so brightly with its promotions. After the welcome bonus, which we found rather mediocre, players can also enjoy a Game of the Week promo – every week there is a different pokie featured and players can enjoy some free chips on the house. The wagering requirement for Game of the Week is down to 40x, which is more or less the industry average. If pokies are your cup of tea, make sure you hop over to the Games sections under Promotions – you’ll find a separate Game of the Week, and a deposit bonus offer. The Live Casino also has a deposit bonus for all players. Again, check under the Live Casino section under Promotions.
BetBright’s customer service team can be reached online with various methods. There is phone support but the number is in the UK. Live Chat: 8am to Midnight, UK time (9pm to 1pm in New Zealand)

Banking is one of BetBright’s weak points. Unlike most other casinos, Betbright does not accept e-wallets. No Skrill, no Neteller. The casino only works with Visa, Visa Electron, Mastercard and Maestro. On the bright side, withdrawals are subject to a 24 hour pending period, which is actually quite quick, and then it can take 3 to 5 business days before you receive your cash – this is roughly the time it takes for the credit card company to process the transaction. The casino works solely in British pounds – this is taken care of automatically with the credit card, so there is not extra process to worry about on this front.
While BetBright is a fine online casino for UK players, it’s not the hottest choice for New Zealanders. The banking options are limited as e-wallets are not accepted. However, there’s a nice selection of games from Microgaming and NetEnt. We weren’t blown away by the promotions’ terms, but there are occasions to pick up some free chips for fun.
