Regent Casino has a quite traditional casino look and feel to it, despite being a relatively new site. However, the selection of more than 570 games is very much up to date, with games by the leading producers that can be played on any type of device, including mobile phones and tablets. You can play online slots in all categories, including video slots, themed slots and progressive jackpot games, and there is a good range of live dealer games as well. Regent Casino is licensed to operate by the Malta Gaming Authority, with payments protected by 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, so this is a secure and well-regulated site at which to play.
The Welcome Bonus for new players at Regent Casino gives you matches on your first three deposits, potentially worth up to €500.
- 1st deposit — 150% match bonus up to €150
- 2nd deposit — 50% match bonus up to €200
- 3rd deposit — 75% match bonus up to €150
In order to claim the full €500 bonus, you need to make three deposits totalling €700, which gives you an initial bankroll of €1,200 and represents an overall match bonus rate of 71%. The minimum deposit required to claim any bonus is €20, and you have 10 days in which to clear each bonus that you receive. You can make real money withdrawals before meeting the wagering requirements, but if you do so you lose any remaining bonus, as well as any winnings made from bonus funds. The wagering requirement attached to the Regent Casino Welcome Bonus is 35x deposit + bonus. This means that if you claim the full bonus of €500, you would need to wager €42,000 before you can withdraw any of the bonus you were awarded, or bonus winnings. Different games contribute to the playthrough at different rates:
- 100% — online slots (see exceptions below) and all other games not listed below
- 50% — casino hold’em, all NetEnt slots and the full list can be found in the terms and conditions.
- 0% — video poker, roulette, baccarat, blackjack, 3-card poker, and some slots which are listed in the T&Cs.
On the face of it, this is a fairly standard and straightforward Welcome Bonus; however, the fact that so many slots only contribute to the playthrough at a rate of only 50% means that for most slot players, the wagering requirement is in a sense doubled, making it amongst the very highest of all the sites we feature here. On the whole, we think there are better value signup deals for New Zealand players around.

While the selection of games at Regent Casino is excellent, and the site an enjoyable one at which to play, the fact that accounts can’t be operated in NZD is a drawback and makes it more difficult for New Zealand slot players here.
