Casino Land Design and Usability
The design of the main site makes it immediately obvious that this site is the product of up-to-date knowledge and design conventions. Simple click and dropdown boxes are used for navigation, with the site itself running surprisingly well given the complexity of the menu systems. That is not to say the menu system is in any way confusing, as it is perfectly obviously laid out and is always simple to use. This business also changes the exact type of site you see based on your region, for example if you are located within New Zealand then the base currency to be used as reference will be $NZ, with even the graphics of a large, well dressed and apparently gambling ready kiwi greeting you on the main page.
The same simple design can be seen from on the app, with large buttons and an easily scrolling screen making it quick and easy to determine where you are, and where you want to go. Note that like many modern websites this site might have problems with older computers hardware and software, so if you are running from a very dated system you should be sure to look before you leap and update what you can (especially your browser).
No effort was spared in terms of live casinos for this business, with it offering a lot in the way of live dealers despite not being the size of some of the better known and larger online gaming sites.
Currently offered by Casino Land are fourteen live blackjack dealers, three for roulette and baccarat and one each for live casino hold’em and three card poker. Unlike many sites the dealers for these games aren’t just attractive young women, but include attractive young men as well.
These live tables can also be further separated into more the immersive types where the dealers are more interactive (available for roulette) and VIP subtypes for higher rollers. These VIP rooms are available for one roulette table and five types of blackjack, with an extra Blackjack Platinum VIP section available for the most serious gamers.
The mobile app for Casino Land is available for iOS, Android and Windows systems, meaning it can be accessed from most mobile phones and many types of tablets. Those tablets and phones that are not compatible can still try their luck with direct access to the main website, but this might cause the site to improperly load or be difficult to use with limited screen space and interactivity.

Our Experience and General Reviews
Positive reviews and experiences on Casino Land tend to revolve around the ease of access and variety of games, especially for those interested in different types of slots. Users also compliment the speed of the customer service, though some have claimed that the customer service representatives were rude and rushed them along.
Other complains include the usual problems of the first withdrawal and verification process being a long and painful one, even among those who are used to this sort of behavior from online gaming sites.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
The comparisons to other gambling services mostly relate to what is on offer, and how this is tied to the size of the business. Most businesses this size, for example, do not offer anything close to the amount of live dealers that Casino Lands does, leaving them as a surprising force in this particular method of gaming.
Also of note is the sheer amount of slots of offer, with Casino Land having far more variety than many of their larger contemporaries. If you like slots then this is definitely a site you should check out.
Work of mouth about Casino Land often deals with the amount of time that they take to verify accounts and give payouts. While Casino Land staff claim that this is because of an enormous focus on safety and quality of service, rather than quantity, there are those who say that this is a deliberate tactic which is used in order to discourage withdrawal and encourage higher deposits.
There is also a lot of back and forth over the quality of the customer support, with some praising their speed and others condemning their attitude and work ethic.
While Casino Land does have an online presence on both Twitter and Facebook it is a rather slim one. Despite being so successful in the industry, and having a lot of emphasis placed on the speed of their direct customer support replies, their social media activity is only minor, with few followers and even fewer updates for both Twitter and Facebook.

Rating this casino is, to a large extent, based off the enjoyment you get from their areas of focus. If you like a lot of different slot games and some quality live dealers then this could be an ideal site for you, if not then you could quite easily find this site lacking.
In this constantly evolving environment of online gambling this is definitely one to keep an eye on, just make sure that you look before you leap.
Combined with the issues regarding customer support and payouts we feel a 3/5 rating is accurate, though might be a little high or low depending on your personal tastes.
