In life, there’s always something new to experience or discover, and you never know what you’re going to like. Us Aussies believe in giving everything a fair go; even if something sounds terrible, it’ll make a good story to tell our mates.

This attitude is shared by the Fair Go Casino, an Australian-themed casino that promises a ripper time. Founded in 2017, Fair Go offers plenty of variety and some huge bonuses to any punters who want to give it a burl.

Ready to give Fair Go its namesake, or do you want to learn a bit more about it? No worries; our casino review covers everything you need to know.

What's Ace at Fair Go Casino?

One of the best parts of Fair Go is how ace their collection of promotions is. There’s a spiffy collection of deposit bonuses, earning punters free spins and cashback. What Fair Go seems to like the most is match bonuses, since there are heaps of them. While there are a few daily and weekly bonuses, many of them are themed around specific pokies or new additions. Not only are there ripper promotions, Fair Go’s VIP program is a great option for frequent punters. Those who qualify gain access to a dedicated VIP host, 40% cashback, and other incredible perks.

Fair Go also offers punters who are after a big win a few progressive jackpot pokies to play, with the highest prize pool at the time of this casino review over four million dollars. In fact, there are many pokies at Fair Go that offer bigger jackpot amounts, even if they aren’t progressive titles. At any time, any punter might just be a bonus round away from a big win. This is exactly the kind of excitement – the idea that anything can happen – that you should look for in an online casino.

Something that might be a positive or a negative depends on your personal level of experience with online casinos. Fair Go is run on the RealTime Gaming (RTG) platform, one of the best and most-trusted casino softwares. RTG casinos have heaps of games available that you can’t find at many other casinos, but they all more or less share the same library. Because it’s so reliable, there are heaps of RTG casinos out there, and even if they have different presentation and promotions, there’s not much variety between them. If you’ve not played at an RTG casino before, there’s no doubt you’ll have a grouse time. If you have, there might not be much excitement for you at Fair Go Casino.

Getting Up and Running at Fair Go Casino

To sign up for a player account at Fair Go Casino, click the Play Now link at the top of this page, and click through the bonus offer page to get to the signup form. We’ve mentioned in other casino reviews that we always appreciate when casinos give the standard RTG form a bit of polish or personality, since it’s a bit heavy and drab, but Fair Go have gone ahead with the normal signup form.

Fill out your account information, including your first and last name, username, and password. On the next page, you’ll be asked for your address and country of residence. Lastly, you’ll be asked for your birthdate and mobile phone number. While this last field is mandatory, you won’t receive any communications unless you check the box to accept SMS messages, so you could substitute a landline if you wanted.

This might seem like a lot of information to include, but it’s all for security purposes. Fair Go just wants to confirm that you’re a real person, since letting robots or automated accounts into the casino means a worse experience for everyone.

Casino Games

Fair Go Casino gives punters the chance to play over 130 pokies, all developed by RealTime Gaming. Even without the depth that having other providers would bring, heaps of these games are really grouse. We’ve said before that players don’t really need thousands of games to choose from because they’re never going to get to them all, and that’s true here as well. That said, some punters might absolutely burn through what’s available here.

Fair Go’s other main strength is that they have heaps of video poker games to play. Punters can choose between one-hand, three-hand, 10-hand, and 52-hand varieties, though quite a few games are just versions of others with different hand sizes.

Outside of these two main categories, Fair Go’s game selection is pretty slim. with an assortment about 20 other types of games. Players can find classic table games like Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette, and even games like Pai Gow and Keno, but the main focus of the casino is on pokies and video poker.

Pokies Power Promotions

The highlight of the new player experience is the welcome bonus, and Fair Go Casino does not disappoint. There’s a welcome bonus of up to $1000 available over a punter’s first five deposits with Fair Go, so you can start off on the right foot. Each of these five deposits has a 100% match bonus of up to $200, so you double whatever you put in.

As we said above, Fair Go has heaps of promotions available for players, almost all of which are deposit bonuses. There are even special bonuses for choosing to use certain deposit methods, like Neosurf or POLi. One thing we really like is the level of support they have for cashback bonuses, since quite a few online casinos either ignore them or otherwise minimize them.

Fair Go’s promotions can only be claimed through the use of bonus codes, which isn’t hard to understand when you get the hang of it but might seem a bit imposing for punters coming from elsewhere. When you make a deposit, simply include the code for the deposit bonus you want and, if you fulfill the conditions, it’ll be added to your account.

Customer Support and Banking

Far more useful than knowing what games or promotions a casino has is knowing how they do customer service. There are a lot of questions a punter might have about an online casino, like how bonus codes work, or if they’re having issues with a payment option. Fair Go Casino’s support page is linked at the bottom of most pages, and it’s here where you can reach out via email or 24/7 live chat.

There are heaps of ways for punters to deposit at Fair Go, though these deposit methods are used at pretty much every online casino. Visa and Mastercard are the accepted credit cards, Neosurf can be used as a pre-paid option, and POLi is Fair Go’s chosen eWallet. More recently, Fair Go has started offering Flexepin voucher payments. Lastly, Fair Go supports deposits made via Bitcoin

Among the two supported options, the minimum withdrawal is $100. A $50 fee is applied to every withdrawal by bank transfer, so if you can withdraw using Bitcoin, you can keep more of your winnings. The maximum withdrawal amount, regardless of the option you choose, is $7500 a week. This might be a bit on the low side for high rollers or dedicated punters, but for the average player this is more than fair.

The Bottom Line

While the number of games at Fair Go Casino may be smaller than other casinos – even when accounting for its pokies and video poker selections – there’s still plenty of reasons to give it a fair go. Ripper promotions and excellent support mean that if you want to play a little or a lot, you’re going to have a bonzer time.
