All Australian Casino Review
We’re always a little dubious when it comes to online casinos that focus specifically on a certain country, mainly due to the fact that they are often simply reskinned versions of another casino that would accept players from the target country anyway. After doing some initial research on All Australian Casino, it appeared that this would be the case again. The brand is owned and operated by L&L Europe, and Australia isn’t in Europe. The brand itself is also licensed in Malta and the UK, although we did notice that Australian Dollars were the main currency at the casino. In all fairness, L&L casinos rarely disappoint too, so we headed into our review of this brand with an open mind and hope that it might turn out to be a top notch place for Australians to play at.
The Experience and Gaming Software
The biggest names in online gaming in Australia, at least as far as the games themselves are concerned, are Microgaming and NetEnt. Aussie players cannot enjoy the online versions of their local favourites such as those from Aristocrat and Ainsworth, so those two online powerhouses fill the void. Fortunately, All Australian Casino has managed to get things off on the right foot by siding with NetEnt for its core games, and takes things a step further by backing up those games with titles from Yggdrasil and Amatic Industries – although the latter probably isn’t going to convince anyone to play there alone!
We were pleased to see that the casino doesn’t go too far with the branding – at least not any more. We have heard stories of images of kangaroos everywhere along with surfing being one of the more prominently depicted pastimes on the site. Nowadays, they have opted for a pretty clean interface with the only part that even comes close to being something of a stereotype being the green and gold colour scheme. They refer to the slots as pokies on the site too and we have no problem with that, primarily on the basis that this is what they are called over there!
Even though All Australian Casino basically makes use of only three developers, with one of them being a little on the smaller side, the size of the game selection actually feels very good. With NetEnt taking pride of place, players will be able to enjoy the likes of Aliens, Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest whenever they fancy it, while also dabbling in some of Yggdrasil’s better known games such as Jokerizer and Draglings. The casino has also jumped on board with the full suite of NetEnt progressive jackpot games too, so there is always plenty to be won on the likes of Arabian Nights and Mega Fortune.
The table gaming and video poker sections are spot on as long as you enjoy the NetEnt style, but the real star when it comes to this kind of game is the live dealer casino. It feels as much a part of the core casino offering as anything else and gives players in Australia and beyond the chance to enjoy some truly top notch live action across the likes of blackjack, roulette and baccarat. The only un-Australian part of the experience is that the studios are usually based in Malta or Latvia, but all of the dealers do speak perfect English.
Account Management and Customer Support
The banking options at All Australian Casino are not exactly extensive but we actually don’t mind this, as the selection has clearly been chosen with Aussie players in mind. Rather than piling on deposit methods that most Aussies won’t have even heard of, the casino has opted to stick with the likes of credit cards and the main electronic wallets like Skrill and Neteller. The brand sticks to its guns by only offering accounts in Australian Dollars and the only really notable limit that we encountered when it came to banking was a $5,000 daily withdrawal limit. This shouldn’t pose much of a problem for most players, especially given that the limit does not apply to any progressive jackpot wins.
Support is good, but it also really pokes holes in the whole Aussie image of the site. Like most casino groups, all of the support is handled centrally for all brands and given that it is frowned upon to have anything involving an online casino physically located in Australia, the team is clearly based elsewhere. In fairness, All Australian Casino has done well with the limitations it has, even going as far as to make the main phone support number a Sydney one. That said, time zones play their part and the support desk is only open between 7pm and 10am. Now, we’re by no means against the idea of a bit of late night gaming, but our idea of a top Aussie casino would at least take business hours into account or, even better, be open 24 hours a day like many leading competitors.
All Australian Casino Review in Summary
All Australian Casino is a good effort from L&L to offer a localised version of its core casino offering, but we just do not think that it does enough. If you’re an Australian player, then you’ll probably know by now that most of the largest international Microgaming and NetEnt partner casinos are more than happy to serve you and while the colour scheme won’t be green and gold, they will generally support Aussie Dollars and offer around the clock support too. There is absolutely nothing wrong with All Australian Casino in its own right, we just think that there are better options out there for casino players in Australia and beyond.
