Red Dog Casino Download
Up to $/€12,250 FREE welcome bonus
Red Dog is a Realtime Gaming (RTG) and Visionary iGaming (ViG) supplied casino open to players aged 21+ and offering three different methods of accessing the casino. You can download Red Dog's software to your computer (compatible with Windows 7 and later editions), use your web-browser (ie. Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, etc.) or play using a mobile phone/pad. Mac owners are welcome to take part in the action by using the web-browser casino.
Red Dog's collection of RTG's casino games and ViG's live dealer tables adds up to approximately 300 games and includes everything you'd expect to find in a well-stocked internet casino. Red Dog's team state that "Integrity, effectiveness and transparency" are their 'main core principles'.
Red Dog download, browser & mobile casino - which is best?
With Casino-Download.com being a download-focused website, you won't be surprised to read that we recommend you download Red Dog Casino over its two alternatives. Downloading the casino's software will mean you'll have considerably faster access to the complete collection of games, smoother navigation around the entire casino and a quicker, easier display of information, promotions and other download-only benefits. Red Dog themselves agree with our assessment, confirming that their downloaded casino is "more extensive".
There are reasons why downloading Red Dog's casino isn't ideal or possible for some players. For example, Mac users should ideally be playing via the browser casino or using a PC emulator. Also, if your computer has a pre-Windows 7 operating system installed then you should also play using your standard web-browser. The good news is that this edition of Red Dog comes a close second to the download casino and shouldn't disappoint in most respects. If you include yourself as a player likely to be using a browser to play at Red Dog then most browsers will suffice but Red Dog particularly recommend using Google Chrome as - in their words - doing so will "guarantee the best performance".
Red Dog's mobile casino will never really compete with the downloadable or browser-based versions of the casino but has the advantage of being playable 'on the move'. If you don't own a computer then it's also your only option! The mobile version for phones and pads, as with all online casinos, will provide a reasonable gambling experience but with far fewer games and it's just not as 'nice' to play. Still, mobile gaming is extremely popular with lots of players and if that's your preference and you are prepared to take into account the inevitable restrictions that a phone or pad brings with it then we are not going to discourage you.
If you are unsure whether to download Red Dog Casino, use your browser or reach for your mobile device then we suggest trying more than one of them, or all three editions. You will have just one account and log in that accesses all three casinos. You can also try Red Dog's games for free without having registered a membership account or being logged in to see which casino version you prefer most. History has demonstrated that lots of the biggest online casino winners are players who opt to play via more than one format.
Banking options, currencies and limits
Depending on your location, you can choose your preferred currency for banking and betting. The currency options at Red Dog are AU$, EURO€ and US$.
Whilst you won't find any e-wallets such as Neteller or PayPal at Red Dog, most of the casino's customers won't be very offput. As is the case at most online casinos, the majority of Red Dog's customers are content to use any of the five available banking options: Bitcoin, credit/debit card, Instant Gift Card, Neosurf and wire transfer.
Note that Neosurf is only available for deposits (not cashouts) and wire transfer is only available for withdrawals (not deposits). All other payment methods can be used for both depositing funds and cashing out your winnings.
The minimum deposit is $/€10 if using Neosurf, $/€20 for Bitcoin, $/€25 for Instant Gift Card and $/€30 for credit/debit card. The minimum cashout amount is a rather steep $/€150 for all withdrawal methods. Red Dog do not charge any fees for deposits or withdrawals.
Red Dog apply a maximum cashout limit of $/€2500 per transaction so if you want to withdraw more than this amount then it will arrive in instalments until the entire cashout is complete. Fortunately, Red Dog pay-out winnings faster than a lot of internet casinos (just one-to-five business days depending on the withdrawal method) so it shouldn't take long to receive all that's due to you.
Unfortunately and illogically, Red Dog Casino apply the $/€2500 at-a-time cashout limit to progressive jackpot wins, which could easily be in the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars/euros. This makes absolutely no sense as Red Dog Casino receive any progressive jackpot wins in full from RTG and therefore have no reason not to pay it all immediately as one payment to the winning player. Very few online casinos follow this practice and it means we are forced to strongly recommend you do NOT play any progressive jackpot games at Red Dog or risk waiting an eternity to receive the full payment if you strike it big. We encourage Red Dog to reconsider their stance on paying these jackpot wins as it ruins an otherwise fair, speedy cashout policy.
Exclusive no deposit required bonuses
It's not displayed on Red Dog's standard website or promotions page but the casino has generously given us an exclusive no deposit bonus offer to share with Casino-Download.com visitors (that's you!). Actually, Red Dog have given us FIVE different no deposit bonuses to offer - you can only choose one of them but it's entirely up to you which one works best for your intentions and preferences.
Your no deposit bonus options are $/€5, $/€10, $/€15, $/€20 or $/€25. Regardless of which one you opt for, the wager requirement will be x50 the bonus so whilst the largest $/€25 is initially the obvious tempter, it means a tough wagering requirement of $/€1250 needs to be completed before you reach cashout status. Players who choose one of the lower no deposit bonuses will as a result have a lower wager requirement to reach before being able to withdraw. For example, choosing the $/€10 no deposit bonus results in a far less scary $/€500 wager requirement. The choice is yours.
Another factor that could sway your decision is that the maximum cashout from all five no deposit bonuses is x3 the bonus amount (so from the lowest bonus amount, $/€15 max cashout to the highest $/€75 max cashout). Again, it's worth thinking about your preferences before deciding which bonus to claim. They all have their benefits.
Once you've decided which of the no deposit offers you want to play with and have opened your membership account at Red Dog Casino, head for the cashier and enter the appropriate bonus code to claim your free money. The bonus codes are 5GIFT, 10GIFT, 15GIFT, 20GIFT and 25GIFT and can be claimed in Red Dog's download, browser and mobile casinos. To stay within the bonus terms and rules, make sure you only play the allowed games as follows: board games, keno, scratch cards and slots/Real-Series video slots with a maximum bet size of $/€10.
Welcome deposit bonuses at Red Dog Casino
As a new client at Red Dog, you can claim deposit bonuses to boost your account balance on each of your first FIVE deposits made at the casino by entering bonus code WAGGINGTAILS in the cashier (claimable in the download casino, browser or mobile edition). Depending on which of Red Dog's four deposit banking options you use, you will get either a 225% or 245% bonus each time. If you're depositing using a credit/debit card or Instant Gift Card then you'll receive a 225% bonus. If you choose to deposit via Bitcoin or Neosurf then you'll get the higher 245% bonus.
Remember that you can claim these bonuses on your first five deposits so you can mix things up by depositing using different methods.
With the maximum awarded bonus coming from a deposit of $/€1000, credit/debit card depositors can claim a bonus of up to $/€2250 (equalling a massive $/€11,250 if you deposit via these methods on all five first deposits made). With Bitcoin and Neosurf depositors getting the higher 245% bonus, depositing the maximum $/€1000 would earn an even more massive $/€12,250 if using these banking methods on all five first deposits.
What about bonus T&C and limits?
As with all online casino bonuses, we have more inevitable terms, conditions and limits to be very aware of before deciding whether to claim the optional welcome bonuses. At Red Dog, the most important limit to take into account is that the five welcome deposit bonuses all have a maximum withdrawal of x30 your deposit. For example, if you have deposited $/€200 via Bitcoin or Neosurf (and received a $/€490 bonus) then your maximum cashout will be $/€6000 ($/€200 x30).
Red Dog's welcome bonus x30 cashout limit is not overly restrictive (some online casinos apply a x5 deposit limit!) and still allows players a fair chance to make a significant profit from their first five deposits but it is worth bearing in mind as your balance increases. If you have claimed the welcome bonus and have been lucky enough to reach x30 your deposited amount (and completed the wagering requirement) then it's time to stop betting and hit the 'cashout' button. As there are five welcome bonuses to be had, there's always the opportunity to make another deposit and go for it again with a fresh x30 limit to aim for.
The wagering requirement whilst playing with Red Dog's five welcome bonuses is (deposit + bonus) x35. Using the above example of a $/€200 Bitcoin or Neosurf deposit and $/€490 bonus, the wager requirement would be a tough $/€24,150 ($/€200 + $/€490 = $/€690 x 35 = $/€24,150) so you'd need plenty of luck along the way to complete the wagering mission and reach cashout time. x35 is slightly higher than the average online casino deposit bonus wagering requirement so remember that these welcome offers are optional and not easy to beat without a considerable dose of good fortune and/or some big wins. We frequently advise players to avoid tough welcome bonuses such as Red Dog's and simply play with your own money, which brings added advantages of being able to play any game you want at any stake and withdraw winnings at leisure. All players are different and - as we've already mentioned in this casino review - the choice is yours.
As with Red Dog's no deposit bonuses, the same maximum bet of $/€10 is in force when claiming the five welcome deposit bonuses. Also, some game restrictions apply so be sure to stick to the following types of game until you're done with the wagering 'adventure'. Not all allowed games contribute 100% towards the wagering requirement - the permitted games and associated wager contributions are: 100% - board games, keno, scratch cards and slots/Real-Series video slots. 20% - card games (blackjack, tri-card poker) and video poker/multi-hand video poker. 10% - roulette and Roulette Multiplier.
As seen above, playing roulette games with welcome bonus money isn't particularly recommended as it only contributes 10% of the stake towards the wager requirement but if you are really determined to play roulette with your welcome bonuses then be sure to only place 'inside bets' (ie. betting on specific numbers or combinations of numbers but NOT betting on Red or Black, High or Low, Odd or Even numbers, etc.). Placing any outside bets on roulette is considered a 'violation of the bonus terms' and will apparently result in the voiding of all winnings. So don't do it and it's probably best to avoid roulette entirely anyway until the wagering target is complete and freedom to play all games is enabled.
And more... the 24/7 Bonus
The freebies don't end after you've claimed your free no deposit bonus and the five welcome deposit bonuses. Even better, the freebies now come with much fewer restrictions resulting in far more flexibility in permitted gameplay and banking. Red Dog Casino players can take advantage of an ongoing, always-available offer called the '24/7 Bonus' by using bonus code SUPERDOG. The ease of using this bonus and lack of tough terms might mean it's preferable to skip straight over the five welcome bonuses and head straight for the 24/7 Bonus instead.
The 24/7 Bonus can be claimed at any point, an unlimited number of times. Once again, Bitcoin and Neosurf depositors get a slighter better deal but credit/debit card and Instant Gift Card users are not very far behind. The 24/7 Bonus has three options: for credit/debit card and Instant Gift Card deposits there are 120%, 135% and 160% bonuses to be had respectively on deposits of $/€30, $/€75 and $/€150. Bitcoin and Neosurf depositors receive an additional 25% so 145%, 160% and 185% bonuses from the same deposit amounts ($/€30, $/€75 and $/€150).
Some of Red Dog's already established rules and limits also apply to the 24/7 Bonus (ie. $/€10 max bet, wagering requirement of deposit + bonus x35 and permitted play of board games, keno, scratch cards and slots/Real-Series video slots) but the really great news about the 24/7 Bonus is that there is NO maximum cashout to concern yourself with, so your winnings possibilities are limitless. This makes Red Dog's 24/7 Bonus probably the most attractive deposit bonus(es) available to members throughout the entire casino. As with all Red Dog's bonuses, the 24/7 Bonus is claimed in your account cashier regardless of whether you are using the download, browser or mobile casino.
Membership loyalty rewards and comp points
All depositing members of Red Dog accumulate 'comp points' to reward real money players for their loyalty to the casino. Every bet placed on almost any game at Red Dog will generate comp points in your account, regardless of whether your bet results in a win, loss or draw - comp points earned are based on the amount of your bet, not the outcome of it.
Comp points are easily understood and easily/instantly redeemed for wager-free real money in your player account, which can then be played on Red Dog's games or cashed out if you prefer. Every 100 comp points earned is equal to $/€1 in real money. The minimum amount of comp points redeemable is just $/€1 and effortless exchanged in Red Dog's downloaded casino. It isn't particularly difficult to locate in the browser or mobile casino either.
Try not to forget to keep a regular eye on your growing comp point balance as you will find it stacking up nicely in the background without even thinking about them. It's not uncommon to end a lengthy gaming session at the casino only to find a surprisingly chunky number of comp points that can be immediately redeemed for even more money to add to your balance - and remember that they are completely wager-free so there are no awkward wagering requirements to contend with.
Red Dog Casino is recommended by Casino-Download.com and unlike lots of online casinos they make it a breeze for existing or potential members to get in touch with them by providing 24/7 customer support via telephone, live-chat and e-mail. However, do be aware of the high wagering requirements on the initial five welcome bonuses and slow-pay of any significant progressive jackpot wins.
As long as you have read the rules and terms and know what you are taking on, Red Dog provides a solid, fair online casino experience. Just don't play any of RTG's progressive jackpot games here.
