This online casino operates out of London, England.
This is another casino which only exists online, with the physical location only being used for servers, administration and maintenance. While this website does not have an app available for mobile use, it does have a custom area on their site which is directly optimized for use on mobile devices.
The games contained within the website are built for quick play, claiming that this is used in order to decrease the data usage costs that often occur with usage of some of the larger sites. In practice there is not much of a noticeable difference. G’Day Casino accepts the following forms of deposit: MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafe Card, Visa, Sofortuberwaisung, POLi, GiroPay, Skrill, dotpay, TrustPay and Local Bank Transfer.

They also offer a number of services that are built around assisting with responsible gambling, these include deposit limits, time reminders, time-out periods and self-exclusion services. Their website even includes basic information that helps reader determine if they have a gambling problem and offers various tips and links that can be followed to help out those in need.
G'Day Casino Design and Usability
The design of G’Day Casino is reminiscent of the internet’s ever-present popup advertisements, with a focus on color and moving animations to catch the user’s eye. The general green and yellow colors evoke a similar scheme to that of the Wallabies, Australia’s very successful rugby union team or, for those less sports inclined, the same color scheme of John Deere farm equipment.
While well labeled and simple to understand this type of flash-heavy site is destined to create trouble for some of those running on outdated or underpowered hardware, though to an extent this problem can be assuaged by running through the mobile version of the site, which is somewhat less demanding.
Despite being one of the smaller online gaming sites, G’Day Casino still gives its users access to eight live casino games. There are four types of roulette, three types of blackjack and one live baccarat room.
As mentioned above, G’Day Casino does not have any actual app for their business, but rather they rely on a page which is created for the sole purpose of mobile access. In order to access this mobile site you can either follow the links from the main page which lead to a page where a user can type in their mobile phone number and have a link sent directly to their phone, or alternatively simply visit the main page from their site. In the case of the second option the website should automatically detect that user access is coming from a mobile site and redirect the user appropriately.
It is also worth noting that the G’Day mobile sites indicate they have less on offer than the desktop versions, but still offer “No fewer than 3 games offer major real-money prizes”.
According to their website the following mobiles and tablets are supported:
Apple iOS – iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, Ipad2, Ipad3 with iOS 4.0+
Android Devices – Running Android version 2.3.5+

G’Day Casino really paints itself as an Australian business here with a unique take on localized promotion.

Our Experience and General Reviews
Online reviews tend to paint a positive picture of G’Day Casino and the way they operate, with most ratings sitting slightly above 7 out of ten stars. This is mostly in line with the writers own experience in that most of what they do they manage to do well, though there are some exclusions in my own experience with the aforementioned live casino.
Common complaints among other reviewers also revolve around the fact the G’Day Casino does not offer games from the Microgaming line of software. The games, especially slot based ones, that are built upon this software are among the most popular and best received, though how much this will matter to you will depend on you own personal tastes.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
In terms of other casinos of this size, G’Day casino offers a lot for its size and what you put it. For a smaller site they are still active in updating and awards while offering, in some ways, a level of variety that even some of the largest sites do not match. Unfortunately this size has been reported to lead to long customer service wait times, which can be problematic.
General consensus seems to be that G’Day Casino offers a lot of specialized games and is fantastic if you like slots, keno and bingo. Common complaints include the slow contact time from staff (which staff claim to be addressing) and the slow authentication process that is typical for all online gaming services.
While they appear to lack a twitter presence, G’Day Casino has a large and active Facebook account which staff use to give out promotions and interact with players. This Facebook account puts many of the larger sites to shame and is really impressive given the size of the operation.
This casino really seems purpose built around a specific type of customer based in Australia or New Zealand, and in this it works well. Simple to get around, a great selection of games (provided you are using the regular version of the site) and an active presence lend a lot in making this smaller site a welcome alternative to some of the bigger names in the business.
On the other side of the equation we have the lack of an app, the sometimes slow response times and lack of some functionality from their website. That being said, this is definitely a site to keep an eye on, if they keep going with upgrades and follow their intentions then G’Day Casino could one day be one of the best.
