This is my review of Emu Casino.
Emus (Dromaius novaehollandiae) are peculiar animals. Next to ostriches, emus are the world’s largest living bird when measured from head to toe. These birds mostly reside in Australia, but you can, of course, also find them in the many zoos of the world!
Why would an online casino take its name from such a creature, you ask? Well, I do not have the faintest idea, although at least Emu Casino serves our Australian brothers and sisters. Perhaps they wanted those living in the land down under to know that they are especially welcome? It is anyone’s guess!
Emu Casino’s egg hatched in 2012. Its so-called momma bird is called Fortune Logic Ltd.
Looks and feel of Emu Casino
On the visual side of things, Emu Casino has kept things rather simple. The casino does look pretty good in my book, but it is nothing too fancy or eloquent. You will mostly only see grey and orange colors here with not many hues.
Bonuses and rewards
Emu Casino takes its business seriously and is always looking for new customers to join them. The welcome package that I came across here had every new customer get 12 registration free spins with no deposits required. I guess redeeming such a bonus is kind of a no-brainer because there is nothing that you can lose with these spins!
First-time depositors could also claim a 100% first deposit bonus—as well as some other smaller deposit bonuses—at the time of writing. Some rather hefty turnover requirements will follow, though, and players in certain countries are not able to get these bonuses. My country Finland, for one, was put on the excluded list.

As I already mentioned, the emu is one large bird. The same also seems to apply to Emu Casino’s bountiful games selection. There are tens of game makers available here. You can find hits from the likes of Microgaming, Pragmatic Play, Quickspin, iSoftBet, Booming, GameArt, Betsoft, and Big Time Gaming. Microgaming especially has a rich selection of over 400 slots waiting for you at Emu!
I would be remiss if I did not mention the huge number of filters that Emu has come up with to ensure that you will always find what you are looking for. You can search for games based on type (slots, live casino, scratch cards, video poker etc.) themes (sports, lifestyle, fantasy), and even provider. Superb!
Safety and security
In my humble opinion, it would be best for Emu Casino to give players a bit more details about itself. Transparency in this business can go a long way, and while Emu claims to have an appropriate gaming license, there is no mention of what this license is. I did some digging, however, and apparently, Emu operates under a Curacao license.
Even though Emu Casino’s lack of transparency feels a bit odd, the casino’s reputation is seemingly a stellar one. As a result, those playing here should not expect to run into too much trouble, which is always a great thing. Even the live support staff could not tell me more about Emu’s license, though.
Banking options at Emu Casino
There are enough deposit methods to go around at Emu Casino. Credit and debit cards, Skrill, Neteller, Bitcoin, Neosuft, Neteller and EcoPayz are all among those listed at the site. And, according to the customer support agent, withdrawals are usually processed within quick 24 hours.
Emu Casino’s support is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I did not have to endure a lot of waiting time before I was already talking to an agent. Despite not being able to tell me more about Emu’s license, the agent did appear rather friendly and professional.
My experience at Emu Casino
Not all Curacao casinos are great, but I guess Emu Casino would have to be one of the better ones. The site is easy to use, the bonuses are okay and the games are good enough.
There is a ton of online casinos in our database, but I think Emu Casino—despite its lack of transparency—should be okay for those who do not have that much choice anyway. Those of us living in Europe, however, would probably be better off focusing on MGA-licensed casinos.
