Fair Go Casino Review
(Last updated June 2022)
Fair Go Casino is yet another Australian themed website that should appeal to pokie mad Aussies. It is what is called an RTG site, meaning that all the games are sourced from gaming developer Real Time Gaming. Only a recent addition to the online casino world (2017), they seem to be spruiked up by Australian based review sites, yet a global leader on casino reviews such as Askgamblers.com makes no mention of them, though the parent company (Deckmedia) has many of its other casino brands listed. An oversight possibly. Like all of the other Deckmedia casino brands, Fair Go is licensed by the Curaçao Gaming Authority and as such all of the Deckmedia casinos are based out of the Dutch Antilles. RTG-Real Time Gaming software platform.
Arriving at the lobby, have realised it is the same layout and has the same games that Rich, Bovada, 7Bit, Planet 7, Ignition and many others have.
And, unfortunately, a small range of games which get boring once you’ve played there and at any of the many others on the RTG list.
It does offer a huge daily and ongoing range of deposit bonuses plus free spins and bonus free money between $5 and $50, after making a deposits days before.
has a LARGER than most, WAGERING REQUIREMENT (which I suppose helps them balance their income after their generous bonus system is given out), of 30X the DEPOSIT -PLUS- the DEPOSIT.
The sign up is detailed with everything needing to be filled out before our first deposit.
They have a $5 No Dep Bonus code FAIRGO5 which gives $5 to try a couple of the games and is 60X wager of winnings.
Min deposit is $20 AUD and $10AUD if using Neosurf which brings it down to a good level among other casinos.
Our standard starting deposit of $50, with the welcome bonus code
300% + 100 spins on Cash Bandit 2
Gave us $200 total with a wager of 30X DEP $50 + 30X BONUS $150
And the 100 free spins 60X
The maximum bet is $10 if you are using a bonus which is higher than a lot of online casinos that have a maximum bet limit of $5
It prompts us to complete FREE SPINS first with Cash Bandits 2 the only game available so we go in and win a decent $23.80 which adds on and starts us with $223.80 to play.
Games are all full of bonuses and free spins which makes gameplay enjoyable and from the start we are winning with a bet of 1.50 and 2.00 and it takes us to over $300 in no time. Any bet above $2.00 was not bringing any luck. With the play through still far off, we continued and once we were quickly back at our original $50 range, and reduced the bets back, and of course had a couple of features but unfortunately no big win this time.
Checking out the wagering, we hadn’t completed 30% yet and had played for a couple of hours.
The verifying at Fair Go is a little more involved where you need to physically print a verification form and fill it out with all the standard info and then scan and email it back to them.
We tried digitally but were rejected and must be PDF which we found out eventually after an email we received days later to advise.
Luckily we weren’t waiting anticipating a withdraw winning so no issue. Just good to know.
Enjoyed playing here and will return as even though limited slots, they’re packed full of features and bonuses are plentiful which gives at least some enjoyable gameplay time and also SOME chance to get through their solid wagering requirement.
Hopefully, now that we are verified, a win or two as well.?

As mentioned the site operates all RTG games but in saying that they cover the bases quite nicely for all the traditional forms of casino gambling.
In the pokies/slots section, there are 3-reel slots including Magic Mushroom and 5-reel slots such as Football Frenzy and the movie-themed Eagle Shadow Fist. There even a 6-reel slot called The Big Bopper, not forgetting progressive slots like Megasaur.
Progressive jackpot card games include Caribbean Stud Poker and Let’Em Ride, playable from the table games section. Pontoon, Pai Gow Poker, and Vegas Three Card Rummy are other popular games.
Fair Go include over 50 video poker games like Loose Deuces and Sevens Wild. American and European Roulette can be found in the specialty games section. This is also where you can play craps and baccarat.
- Parent company has been in business since the early 2000’s.
- Pretty decent deposit bonuses (up to first 5 deposits).
- Other bonuses are also quite generous, though do read their (and our) fine print.
- Site seems to be well themed for Australians, even if by strict definition it’s not a legal Australian site.
- Financial transactions and personal data are processed using 128-bit SSL encryption.
- Not a great number of games on their portfolio, that’s because they are a mostly RTG shop. At last count, a touch over 200.
- Conflicting views on website layout.
- Withdrawal options are limited, which leads me to believe that the hardest withdrawal options (or less commonly used) are the ones they promote! I wonder why that is?
- Bank Transfer fee of $50 is expensive, but admittedly this is not the casino’s doing.
- Email – firstname.lastname@example.org (Email turnaround response: 2-3 days, which is far too long).
- Live Chat – refer website (recommended).
- Phone – International toll free.
Having reviewed various products for a number of years, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know when something doesn’t feel quite right. It’s called the spidey-vibe.
Whether it’s clever target marketing by Deckmedia, or the gullibility of Aussie players, inevitably the two will meet, in the crossfire of public feedback. In this case bad feedback.
You can only sugar coat things for so long before it becomes distasteful. Given that this website has only been around for three years, I’ll let them off the hook.
Plus the fact that Deckmedia have been in the game for nearly two decades it’s another reason to let them off the hook this time.
For Australian punters, if you are unsure about these guys then look elsewhere.
