Anyone who is at all familiar with casino terminology will know that to double down is to double your bet. The owners of the Double Down online casino are assuming that your experience at their casino is going to be so enjoyable that you are going to double down every time you visit.

To test this theory, I have decided to take a closer look at the casino and check out a number of different factors including the casino bonus types, the game selection and the general ease of playing at the casino. Below you will find my in-depth Double Down casino casino review and impressions.


The Double Down Casino is provided by DoubleDown Interactive and they declare themselves the largest free online casino. When you first enter the casino lobby you will be offered the option of signing in directly through the site or logging in through your facebook account.

If you choose to sign in through the site you will be taken to a colorful casino floor and awarded $200,000 chips. Now this is certainly the most generous New Zealand online casino bonus you will ever receive, unfortunately this free money is just virtual money! If you log in directly to the casino site as a guest, just be aware that you’re playing time is limited and not all of the features are available.

If you are looking for the complete gaming experience then it is worth logging in to the casino through your facebook account. Every time that you log into the casino through facebook you will receive a few thousand virtual dollars so that you can continue playing. Extra chips are awarded for referring friends to the casino.


The pokies games at Double Down are pretty entertaining. There are over 60 games on offer including many of the popular IGT pokies games such as Cleopatra and American Idol, other games that can be played at the casino are Phantom Manor, Sugar Shack and Harvest Fun. The games are easy to play and come with a range of betting options, the casino also offers pokies tournaments 24/7. If you are new to the online casino it is a good idea to begin by reading the Slot’s Guide provided by the casino that details the game rules as well as tips on strategy for beating the pokies machine.

If you enjoy poker than you will be pleasantly surprised by the game selection at the casino. There is also an option of playing at one of the Multi-Player pokies tables with other players, the games on offer at these tables include Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 5 Card Draw.

Other games at the casino are Blackjack, Roulette, Bingo and Video Poker.

The casino provides detailed playing instructions and tips for all of the games on offer at the casino and some of the games have the option of being played in an automatic mode.


Double Down have partnered with facebook to offer a fun and interactive gaming option, the bonus that you will receive as a facebook user is a pretty awesome $1,000,000. In exchange you will provide the casino with your personal details such as your email address and your birth date.

The interactive character of the casino lends itself particularly well to facebook and you will have the added bonus of being able to play the casino games with your facebook friends. In the multi-player games, players are represented by the facebook profile and there is also a chat function so that you can connect to the other players around the table.

Other benefits that players have when opening a Double Down account through facebook, is being able to purchase tickets and take part in high stake lotteries, and the option of making new friends through the multi player games.


As a free NZ online casino, Double Down is a fair to good contender. The casino website is pretty threadbare and basic and the game selection is rather limited. The casinos strength definitely lies in its simplicity, clear playing guides and the option of playing directly from your facebook account.

If you are looking for some free fun, new online friends and regular NZ casino bonuses then join the Double Down Casino today via your facebook account and try your luck at the online casino.
