Highroller Casino Review (NZ)

By Dale Shelabarger, Updated:

Highroller is a brand-new online Casino operated by Betit Operations and backed by Gaming Innovation Group. In December 2017, we ran a story that Highroller’s launch had been delayed due to some minor technical teething problems. For players in the UK, they have had to wait even longer.

However, we can confirm the wait is over. And boy, was it worth it. Highroller is an innovative, comic book themed casino with a videogame’s spirit of adventure that will almost certainly appeal the 18-25 demographic. It is a 21st Century Casino for the 21st Century player.

Highroller Casino Review

Top up $100, play with $200 + 50 Free Spins + 20 Coins

The highlights? This offer is for new players only and there is a minimum $10 top up. It is subject to a x45 wagering requirement which you must play through within 30 days. Deposits made via e-wallets Neteller and Skrill will not be eligible for the welcome bonus. The bonus spins are released 10 per day for 5 days and potential winnings must be wagered x35 in 30 days. The maximum bet players can make with bonus money is $5.

Not only this, players will obtain 20 “coins” for signing up, and a free sting game. Not sure what that means? We’ll try and explain how the Highroller Casino universe works in a little more depth.

Highroller Casino Features

Highroller Casino takes place in Metrocity, a sort of comic book underworld, or “dark metropolis” as they call it. By staking money and playing casino games you will progress through the city’s “districts” as well as accumulating rewards and “loot,” if you will.

Now, obviously Highroller is not the first online casino to incorporate adventure, mission, and “levelling up” ideas which are traditionally associated with video gaming, into their product. (Think Casumo, Kaboo etc…) Sometimes when it is deployed, it can seem like a quite cynical player retention tool, especially if the “adventure” is not very interesting or the rewards aren’t very good.

However, Highroller have really put an emphasis on universe building and narrative coherence. It is an incredibly immersive experience. In fact, one could go as far as saying that Highroller Casino offers something that no online casino has ever offered before.

As you play, you will advance on the progress map. How far each game progresses you, depends on how much you stake and which games you are playing. Pokies, for example, tend to power you at high speed.

As you “progress,” you will find coin accumulating prospects called “Stings” as well as the ability to level up on the map.

The “Coins” are the secondary currency of Metrocity that runs parallel to your actual money balance. Firstly, as a registered member, you receive a coin allowance everyday like some sort of universal income of the future. Once you’ve hoarded enough, you can swap them for rewards in the shop.

However, if you don’t play for 5 days or more, you could be vulnerable to a “sting,” where another player could loot some of your coins. However these go both ways. Once you’ve reached a certain level, you will receive a “sting” countdown. Then you too can choose a target and collect coins.

Players can also acquire different types of spins: Spins, Super Spins and Mega Spins, which are worth around $3 a go!

Highroller Casino Pokies

Highroller have over 750 games and pokies for a player’s delectation. Just some of the software providers include NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT, Quickspin, Blueprint, and indie developers like Thunderkick and Red Tiger Gaming.

Some of Highroller’s featured pokies of the moment include Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Twin Spin, and Immortal Romance. What’s more, the casino offers some interesting categories that players can filter pokies by; just ignore the hashtags in front! These include:

Highroller Casino Games

Highroller has a small but select collection of table games. If you’re a Blackjack or Roulette fan, don’t worry you’re covered. We imagine that they will continue to build their table game portfolio over the coming months.

Live Dealer Games

Highroller Casino has Evolution Gaming live dealer casino and so there’s not really much more to say. Play Roulette, Blackjack, 3 Card Poker, Casino Hold’em & Live Dreamcatcher on the best platform on the market.

Highroller Casino App and Mobile

Over 500 games are available on the mobile version of Highroller. There’s no mobile app for this casino currently. However, the Highroller is aptly and effectively translated onto your mobile browser.

VIP Scheme

Highroller does not have a VIP scheme in the classic sense. Rather, the way in the which the universe has been designed engenders loyalty from its customers in and of itself. Once you enter Metrocity, you won’t want to leave.

Customer Support

If you have questions and queries for the Highroller customer support team, the you can email them at There is a 24/7 live chat service which players can open by clicking on the pigeon with a headset (of course). You’ll find helpful, orange eyed pigeon in the bottom right hand corner of your screen.

Highroller Casino Review Summary

Highroller have said explicitly that their desire was to create a product that was more than just “senseless spins from a faceless shop.” They’ve certainly achieved that… and then some. Time will tell if it truly takes off, or if it is merely over-complicating the online casino experience. However, we think it’s the most exciting of new online casinos to launch since PlayOJO. Both of which are doing something truly new in the industry. Become a Metrocity rogue! We think you’re going to love it.
