Royal Panda entered the market more than a decade ago with the launch of their online casino. Since then, they have expanded their offerings to include a live casino, and now they have launched a sports betting platform where you can find all the most popular online sports in NZ. Unlike many of its casino counterparts that bolt-on online sports betting, Royal Panda have truly embraced the genre with an impressive range of markets that will rival even the largest bookmakers in the industry.
The bookmaker is styled in red and black with a simple, easy-to-use interface. As per the industry standard, the list of sports extends down the left of the screen while the markets appear in the middle and the bet slip sits on the right. The markets are split into live and pre-match events with the number of markets displayed clearly on the list. The layout can be changed by clicking on the view buttons to display the event view, live view or multi view.
For mobile users, online sports betting at Royal Panda is a breeze. The mobile-ready site is accessible on all leading smartphones and tablets via the mobile-web browser. There is no need to download any software, simply log on, sign in and place your bet.
Odds and Markets
Royal Panda offers a particularly impressive range of wagering options. While they do have a distinct lack of Horse Racing markets, they pretty much have everything else you could think of placing a wager on, including:
- Formula One
- Aussie Rules
- American Football
- Ice Hockey
This online betting NZ site also includes a full range of niche options like Bandy, Kabaddi, Alpine Skiing, Pool, Ski Jumping and more. They also offer eSports, with wagering on local and international tournaments.
On any given day, they feature over 1000 markets, which is impressive given that they are relatively new to the industry. The odds are reasonable and are in line with the other casino sites with bookmaking facilities. Getting in early definitely helps.
Free Bet Offer
Royal Panda Sports sticks to the tried and tested cash match offer, which is available across the casino and live dealer platform as well. Instead of just handing out a small cash free bet, punters can look forward to a 100% cash match free bet bonus up to a $100. The wagering requirements sit at 7x which is not too bad considering the bets can be made at minimum odds of 1.80. The site also runs regular promotions on all the top online sports in NZ.
As per the industry standard, you can expect to find all the most popular banking options for instant deposits and fast cashouts. This includes payment by card, bank transfer, prepaid card, web-wallet and instant banking payment. Some of the most popular NZ payment options include Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard.
Taking a page out of their casino book, the bookmaker offers 24 hour support for all registered members. The site is equipped with a help page where you can find information about markets, odds and general terms. If your run into any issues, simply click or tap on the live chat button to speak to a customer support agent.
