Whether you’re looking for a list of epic games from a trusted provider, or just a place where you can play at an online casino as a South African, then you’ve come to the right place. We take an in-depth look at Punt Casino, a site designed for players from SA.

We’ll examine their bonuses, the payment options, the site, and all their games. Plus, we’ll give you a fair and balanced conclusion after we’ve taken a look at everything. We give you all the pros and cons and weigh them up so that you can make your own decisions on whether or not you’d like to play here or not. We don’t make that decision for you; we just give you the information for you to decide.

Find everything you need at Punt Casino


The main promotion at Punt Casino is their welcome package. You’ll get a total of R10,000 in your first three deposits using the codes WELCOME100, WELCOME75 and WELCOME125. Each of these coupons need to be redeemed before you make your deposits, and each of them will work in tandem towards the R10,000 total package.

The first deposit will be 100% up to R3,500, with the second being 75% up to R2,500, and finally the third is 12% up to R4,000. The playthrough on these bonuses are at 40x, which we found to be quite high. Usually online casinos will go in at around 20x or 30x for the welcome bonus, depending on the amount.

If you decide not to take advantage of that welcome bonus, you’ll still be able to get daily cashback with the cashback promotion. Players will be able to get 15% cashback on their losses on every deposit where they don’t claim a bonus coupon. Should you claim the welcome bonus or any other bonus, you won’t be able to use the Daily Cashback scheme.

While not awfully specific, Punt dos say that they offer daily bonuses, with at least 1 deposit bonus or coupon each day. These may include free spins or bonus money but will only be available for players loyal to Punt Casino. There’s also a VIP program that is rather intriguing at Punt Casino, one that will offer you rewards and loyalty perks as you level up.

Site Design

Punt Casino is rather unique in that it has a rather understated look. It glows with a feint tinge of deep blue, with bonuses, promotions and advertorials all glowing in yellow and white. It makes them stand out but puts them right, dead center in the middle of your screen. Almost frustratingly.

If you’re someone who might not be affected by that, you’ll see a couple of promotions flying by on the banner in the middle of the screen followed by the most recent jackpots that have been won. Just further beneath that, you’ll see a bunch of popular games including slots, table games and video poker. The site has a little section for promotions followed by some information regarding the site.

The site is easy to navigate as it has all the available menus located at the top of the screen, with a traditional menu that can be brought up on the right-hand side. The menu though, seems to be of little use as it covers almost everything that you’d see in the middle of the page anyway.

Discover all the promotions that Puntcasino offers


Punt Casino uses games from the software provider RealTime Gaming. RTG is a rather popular provider, especially at South African online casinos. You’ll see popular slots like Asgard, Bubble Bubble 2, Cash Bandits and more. The selection of games is rather good, but we’ve seen better. Since there is just the one provider on offer, there are a lot of games that haven’t quite made the cut for the list.

Depending on what your favorite games are, you should be able to find everything you need at Punt Casino though. They have different kinds of Blackjack, Roulette and Poker, as well as other niche games like Pontoon or 21 Face Up. Something that we did find rather nice was that if you do look for a particular game that is quite popular, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find it at the main menu.

They don’t classify things as “table games” and “other games” when you’re struggling to find something like baccarat. As mentioned, the single casino software provider somewhat limits the amount of games that can be played at Punt Casino. You won’t be able to find any live dealer casino games within the RTG software wheelhouse, nor will you be able to find any scratchcard games, bingo, or anything else that’s a little more off-color than usual.


Punt Casino makes up for its lack of games and higher than normal wagering requirements with payment options. It’s one of the few sites that takes traditional debit and credit cards, but also allows users to play using ewallet, prepaidcard and cryptocurrency. They also use SID Instant Deposits, a deposit method that works really well for South African players. Designed specifically for SA users, SID will allow you make deposits and withdrawals, up to a minimum or R25 and R500 respectively, that will go straight into your bank account.

It usually takes between 3 and 5 working days, so is arguably a lot better than traditional methods. Speaking of traditional methods, should you happen to use VISA or MasterCard, you can enjoy a required minimum deposit of R25, and unfortunately, not withdrawals can be made with the same method.

You can use any of the ewallets or prepaid cards, many of which, share the R25 minimum and the payout time of between 3 and 5 days. Bitcoin is by far one of the fastest withdrawal methods, as you can find your real money in your account within 24 hours. Bitcoin, Neteller and Skrill will only let you withdraw if you’ve got a minimum payout amount of R300, a little less than the likes of EasyEFT and ecoPayz who require R500 minimum payout.

Before you make any kind of withdrawal in ZAR, be sure that you have verified your user account because most online casinos won’t let you withdraw money if you don’t have proof of a form of ID.

Punt also has a maximum withdrawal limit of R20,000, and amount that we think to be completely outrageous. Getting your online casino account balance up to R20,000 is something that any gambler will be able to do given that they know what they are doing and happen to win more than they lose.

Security & Support

Punt has been licensed by the Curacao Gaming Authority, so all of their dealings are completely legal. They’re also a part of the Central Dispute System, or CDS, allowing users to file disputes online when they feel they’ve been treated unfairly.

One thing that we didn’t see on their site was any kind of eCOGRA authentication which means that they don’t have a third-party company doing audits of their practices. It’s not an illegal thing to do, but it does often help to put faith into an online casino.

Although, we would never hold it against a casino for not having this kind of certification. The site uses SSL-encryption technology to ensure that banking information and personal particulars are kept confidential, and the site adheres to the latest in the POPI act, making sure that the protection of personal information is high on their list.

Contacting the support team over at Punt Casino isn’t difficult to do and they have a live chat support feature that is available around the clock, and they have an email address where you can contact the team too. We weren’t able to find any kind of FAQ, so it feels like the site is more aimed at people who have gambled before, rather than complete newcomers.

Mobile Casino

The mobile version of the site looks terribly similar to the desktop thanks to the responsive website technology they use. This allows for users to be able to use any mobile or tablet device and still get the same experience as they would on a desktop.

The only difference between the two is that the mobile versions of games are often a little smaller with reduced sound quality or features, in order to make them run faster, take up less space and limit data usage.

We all know how tough it can be in South Africa to have a stable internet connection, and how much people rely on mobile data. This is why it’s essential that the mobile site works as well as it does, and we’re glad to report that too.


Is Punt Casino the right place for you? If you’re a South African or a player living in South Africa, Punt is a nice place to spend your money. We found that the lack of game diversity was a little off-putting, but if you’re coming to an online casino for something like blackjack or roulette or slots, you’ll be fine.

It’s only really the niche games that aren’t catered for. Be careful when you decide to claim or select your deposit bonus, especially if you’re using the welcome bonus. Read the terms and conditions carefully because the wagering requirements for anything over 100% matched are a little too high for our liking.

In addition to that, if you do manage to meet those wagering requirements and exceed them, you’ll be limited to a R20,000 maximum monthly withdrawal. Aside from all of these little issues here and there, Punt Casino is still a solid online casino to play at, and while it’s mainly focused on South Africans, it’s not overly pushy about it, flooding your screen with green and gold, or putting Zulu shields and rugby balls everywhere.
