About Us

Real Money CasinosReal Money Casinos is dedicated to finding, reviewing, and suggesting the best online casinos for New Zealanders. We make sure that all Kiwi players can get the best online casinos for their money, whether they enjoy playing ever popular pokies, instant games, live casino or table games. We seek casinos that are sweet as when it comes to payment options and cater specifically to Kiwis in our local currency (NZ$), offer preferred banking methods like Skrill, Instant Banking, and Maestro, and are strong in their offering for online security, customer support, welcome bonuses, VIP clubs, game selection. We have sourced the best and you can be certain that those which made the shortlist will meet and exceed your expectations in every regard. Whether you are just a casual gambler or a high roller, there is something for you at Real-Money-Casinos.co.nz. We understand that different players have different demands and try to tailor our site accordingly. However, in all this, we always put the safety of our players above all else and if we notice or hear from a trustworthy source that a particular casino is slow to pay its customers or tries to cheat them in one way or another, they are immediately removed from the site. Good bonuses and other offers are worth nothing if you can’t get your money in the end and we fully understand this. Why are there two different sites? Well, we can tell you that even though things like casino games and online slots are mostly the same, what is available and popular in each country differs dramatically. Banking methods, software providers and bonuses offered are all geo-targeted. Also some online casinos restrict which countries can even sign up and some do not take CAD or NZD.

Who are we?

888 casino

This site was created and is being maintained by, David Taylor and Stewart Anderson. David and Stewart have years of player experience both on and offline and want you to benefit from their vast experience and knowledge.

David Taylor has been playing pokies for more than ten years and can certainly call himself somewhat of an expert on the topic. From jackpots, bonuses, and feature games, he has played nearly every game there is, and experienced the excitement of the big win more than a few times. His advice on bankroll management, finding good slots, and different strategies players can apply to increase their odds of winning is truly invaluable.

Stewart Anderson is more of table game expert, although like any good Kiwi, he's been dabbling in pokies as well. From advanced blackjack strategies to roulette and craps systems, Stewart has been around the block more than a few times and he certainly knows his way around casinos, virtual and real ones alike. Stewart's brother-in-law is Alan Jones, an online casino expert in Canada, and they work closely together to bring Canadians and New Zealanders the best possible content.
In life, there is no real substitute for hands-on experience and thanks to the rich combined experience of David and Stewart, this site is able to offer exactly the type of information and advice many players out there are after.

How We Test

The very first step in our vetting process for an online casino is visiting their site, registering an account, and seeing their software in action. If the software is no good or game selection is poor, we usually don't need to go past this first step. With so many casinos to choose from, why would anyone accept anything other than top quality?

The next step, prior to depositing, is going around known online gaming communities and checking comments and user experiences. If we find way too many negative comments, this is usually a big danger sign. While most online casinos will have bad reviews from a few disgruntled players, when there are dozens of these reviews and, more importantly, when the casino is reluctant to address these concerns, we will usually pass. Players' safety is our number one priority and, once again, with such a great selection, there is no need to take unnecessary risks.

Finally, once a casino passes these tests successfully, we deposit the money, take their welcome bonus, carefully read through their conditions and talk to the support. This is not only to make sure we understood everything correctly but also to see how knowledgeable and forthcoming their support staff is.

Then comes the fun part. We start playing different games, jump around the casino, and try as many games as we can. This gives us the ability to create a full picture and understand how the casino really operates. It also enables us to notice any potential problems that may not be as obvious at the first glance.

Finally, once we meet the playthrough requirements for the bonus we go for our top priority: ease of withdrawal. We always make sure that everything is right on our part so that the casino has no reason to deny us a withdrawal. This is one of the most important steps in the process. If our withdrawal is not processed in a timely fashion – we freeze out that casino from our list.  With this process in place, you can rest assured that once we've vetted the casino, you are as safe as can be.

We can't give you any type of guarantee, of course, as things change, but we base all our reviews on our personal experience and individual tests, so to provide you with the best information available at the moment. We also love to hear from our web site visitors and take each one of their thoughts, concerns and complaints about our NZ online casino reviews into account.
