Deposits and withdrawals in Golden Star

For replenishing the account, players can utilize a few globally acclaimed payment options such as VISA/MasterCard, ecoPayz, Neosurf vouchers and bitcoin. Minimum limits depend on the method and vary between A$10 and A$25 per transaction, while maximum deposits are A$6000 for all methods without exception. Mind that a new player is asked to pick a preferred currency, so you might want to pick AUD. Failure to do so or specifying a currency other than AUD can result in exchange fees if you deposit Australian dollars instead of the currency you have initially picked. Concerning withdrawal method, there is bank transfer, credit cards (VISA/MasterCard) and bitcoin. Like any other online casino out there, Golden Star has certain daily, weekly and monthly limitations (A$6000, A$9000 and A$25.000 respectively) on cashing out money from the casino. That said, some VIP players are exempt from this rule, and so are progressive jackpot winners.

Bitcoin payments in Golden Star

The casino boasts of having integrated bitcoin payments in both directions (in and out of the casino). Bitcoin transactions are free of commission, fully anonymous, quick and secure. However, they are also governed by the same restrictions in transaction volumes as said in the previous paragraph. All games where bitcoin bets are accepted have been proven fair by independent auditing bodies, which is certified by related icons at the website footer.

Online pokies and table games in Golden Star

Most Aussies feel frustrated about government resolutions that forced many popular pokie vendors close their operations in Australia. Nonetheless, there are still many software manufacturers that operate in the Down Under and impress gamblers with their suites of games. In Golden Star, one can enjoy over 350 pokies from Betsoft, Belatra, iSoftBet, BGaming, IGTech, EGT, Platipus and Lucky. Five-reel and three-reel pokies are all posted in one single category, which is a bit uncomfortable for some players who want to find a classic game. At the same time, the games list features a user-friendly “Display By Provider” filter that removes all providers from the list and shows only the games of the selected provider. There’s no sense in reviewing all the topics, reel layouts and pokie configurations available in the online casino. Briefly speaking, almost everyone will certainly locate a pokie to his liking, including high-rollers because there are some games (e.g., from Betsoft) with a very high bet limit. Lastly, every game is available in two gaming modes: for fun and for real money. But to be able to launch any game, one needs to create a casino account first off. Table games is a point of criticism in Golden Star because there are only some 20 RNG (non-live) tables to pick from. Some examples include European and American roulette, classic blackjack, scratch cards and a few dice games. Given the scarcity of table games, table game enthusiasts will be happy to see some interesting solutions like Blackjack Surrender, Double Exposure blackjack and VIP blackjack for heavy punters who like big stakes. All table games, except for a mere couple, come from BGaming.

Progressive pokies in Golden Star

Pokies with a progressive cash prize are versatile in the casino. The entire progressive collection is formed by three providers: Betsoft (12 games), EGT (100+) and iSoftBet (15). The reason of why EGT features an unbelievably huge amount of progressive pokies is that almost every game produced by that company is equipped with a randomly triggered local progressive. A “random progressive” means the grand prize is unlocked and won without any pre-condition (special combination of symbols, a victory in a bonus feature, etc.). To help players in their choice, all EGT progressive games feature brief info on top of related pokie icons (the No of lines, free spins). Betsoft progressives are more popular than these of EGT, with the former featuring some well-known titles like Good Girl Bad Girl, Greedy Goblins, Treasure Room, The Glam Life and Pharaoh King.

Golden Star live casino

Evolution Gaming arguably ranks among top three live game developers that continually releases new titles and expands its production facilities (for example, it recently signed an agreement to acquire the Ezugi corporation, another live game producer). Anyway, their games are on the brim of being a masterpiece in terms of quality. Many roulette variations (Immersive roulette, Speed roulette), blackjack tables (Infinite blackjack, Blackjack Party) and baccarat with the Squeeze technique are favorites for thousands of Aussies. Besides, Golden Star features some rare solutions from that innovative provider such as Live Dream Catcher.

Welcome bonus in Golden Star

The welcome set is comprised of 3 bonuses for novices, each unlocked upon topping up the account with at least A$30 (a bonus code is required before depositing - see the related casino webpage for detailed info). The 100% first deposit bonus up to A$150 must be wagered 50 times (bonus only), keeping in mind a A$1.5 limitation on a bet size while wagering the bonus. As a pleasant addition to the bonus, 100 free spins are issued immediately upon bonus activation. These spins are offered in installments - 20 FS’s per day, for five days. Winnings obtained from free spins must be wagered 50 times, similarly to the 1st deposit bonus. After completion of the playthrough requirement, Aussies who like bonuses have the right to claim the 75% second deposit bonus up to A$150 and the 50% third deposit bonus up to A$150. All the three promos feature absolutely identical terms and conditions, except for that only the first in the package comes with free spins.

Reload bonus in Golden Star

There is one reload bonus in the reviewed casino, as of today. It becomes active every Friday and covers the users who have made at least 3 qualifying deposits (A$30+) on the Friday the bonus is going to be claimed. The reload bonus is half as much the deposited amount, no more than A$150. The bonus money will be yours, once you fulfill the rollover requirement of x50. Gladly, the reload deal is accompanied with 60 free spins, evenly distributed throughout three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), 20 FS’s for each. As you might have guessed, winnings from free spins must be wagered, too, at a standard x50 times value.

Golden Star VIP Club and loyalty points for Aussies

The VIP system has a standard design compared to other casinos. It features 6 levels along which players progress by earning loyalty points (LPs). Points are awarded for betting real money (AUD, bitcoin, etc.) on pokies and table games only. Pokies contribute fully, while blackjack, roulette and other table games contribute just 5% to earning LPs. As soon as a player reaches a certain value (e.g., 150 points for Bronze Star), he is assigned a new level up. Actually, being a VIP status bearer gives nothing special. By moving higher and higher along the VIP statuses, a player just earns LPs quicker but no bonuses, promos or other interesting events are present.

Golden Star mobile casino

The mobile casino is like a miniature desktop site. All key features, bonuses and other important content that make the online casino enticing for players are preserved in the mobile casino. Sure, the collection of pokies is much smaller, with about 150-180 games available so far on the go, however it is common knowledge that scope of HTML5 games increases gradually so loyal players in Golden Star may expect to find an updated games lobby when they check back next time. The mobile casino has attractive design, runs perfectly on iOS and Android tablets/smartphones and has no compatibility issues.

Bottom line on Golden Star

By all standards, Golden Star is an above average online casino that accepts gamblers of Australia. It has 350+ pokies, an exquisite collection of live dealer games from Evolution, a triple welcome bonus (w/ free spins), a weekly reload bonus and a conventional VIP program. Just have a look at the online casino and big chances are you won’t be disappointed.
