Springbok Casino – an online South African casino
“The best high roller casino” is a bold claim and one that deserves a little closer scrutiny. Online South Africa Casino takes a look at a venerable and popular online casino for South African gamblers, one that may well rank as an originator of the online casino world for Mzansi – Springbok Casino. Like its namesake, the formidable South African Rugby Team, it has a lot of strengths but sometimes falls victim to some glaring errors. But, also like the Bokke, at the end of the day it will always bring you entertainment and thrills. For those real money online slots South African players out there, and with some real money online table games thrown in for good measure, Does Springbok Casino still have the online cred?
A quick look at Springbok Online Casino
Springbok Casino is a trusted online and mobile casino that is incredibly popular with South African online gamblers. It might have something to do with our inherent attraction to anything in the Green and Gold. It might be because Springbok Casino was one of the first online casinos to welcome South African online gamblers and give them access to top quality slots, table games, and those oh-so-tempting no deposit bonuses, welcome bonuses and ongoing promotions that bolster any gambler’s bankroll.
Whatever the reasons, Springbok Casino certainly features strongly in the SA online casino market and, even though they are only dependent on one main provider (Realtime Gaming – solid international game provider) have enough variety and choice to keep online players happy for ages.
Plus, they have a great blog and regular promotions to boot.

The Springbok Casino online experience
Springbok Casino have had a relatively recent facelift which has brought this online casino firmly into the more modern look and feel. Previously they had a bit of a cheesy ‘beer and boerewors’ vibe, almost like a bush pub which, while tickling the funny bone, is not somewhere you want to spend all your time. Generally speaking, of course, and no disrespect to those people who really enjoy the rustic and rural feel of a bush bar. But the new look is a far better advert for a modern online and mobile casino, classy and premium. They have not lost the beloved green and gold, simply incorporated it into a slick and stylish layout that really appeals.
Another thing that they have not changed is the unique sense of humour and language of South Africans. The site is liberally dotted with great Seffrican words and concepts, not least their excellent blog and articles pages – something that really stands out in an online casino that, while definitely aimed squarely at gamblers on our southern shores, is very much owned and operated overseas.
But back to the things that really matter to South African fans of casino games: the navigation.
Registration and log in are simple clicks on the top right of the page. New players will need to fill in the usual details like name, ID number, physical address, email, and so on. Your created username and password will get you back in via the Log In button whenever you’re ready for some online casino action.
Springbok online casino has laid out everything a player needs clearly and with a minimum of fuss, something that is easily done when you have only one provider and a good if not gigantic choice of games.
Layout will be familiar to regular players and quick to grasp for novices. A main menu with links to the important bits like Instant Play, Promotions, and Support. Clear Log In and Register buttons on the usual top right which change into the Player Profile, balance, and query links on successful sign up. A big, animated banner displaying all the bonuses and promos.
And, of course, a main page dominated by all the online slots games on offer.
There are also links at the bottom of the page – one of which is rather interesting: Springbok Casino have a great ‘South Africa’ section that is filled with all sorts of info, facts, and stats about our sunny country. Fits in perfectly with the Mzansi theme.
On the topic of facts and stats: Springbok Casino has loads of tips, guides, and videos on how to play the various games on their site, a great blog, and various articles about the online gambling world.
Animated banners display all the latest promos and bonuses and also a list of the latest winners (under their shortened pseudonyms so your anonymity is still protected) and the amounts they’ve just won. A clever way of displaying that players do walk away with some nice cash at Springbok Casino.
Navigating around Springbok Casino is made simple with the quick links. The main page has a dominant menu with links to Home, Mobile, Instant Play, App, Download, Banking, Promotion, Support, and Games. Most of these tabs will be familiar to South African online gamblers but there are one or two that need a little explanation.
The Mobile tab gives you more detail about the Springbok Casino mobile offering and a link to go to the mobile version. The OSAC team assume that this is aimed at players who have gone to Springbok Casino using the browser on their mobile device.
Instant Play takes you straight to the online casino games and all the different lobbies for the games. It could confuse some players as there is also a Games tab which one would assume takes you to the casino games but is actually filled with all the latest news on the latest games that are being offered. Weird.
The App tab is for players who prefer to have their online casino as an app on their mobile device rather than a cookie on their browser.
Download is an option for those who want to download the casino software directly to their desktop and have a dedicated quick link from their desktop menu bar rather than a cookie in their browser.
The rest of the tabs are self-explanatory.
These odd little options aside, Springbok Casino has great functionality, easy navigation, and a fantastic new look that will appeal to south Africans looking for some casino action from the convenience of wherever they are. A good option. Safe, secure, trusted, and user friendly.
And very social media savvy! Springbok Casino has a big presence across YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and all the other popular online and social media platforms.
Online casino games at Springbok Casino
With all their online casino games being run through Realtime Gaming, Springbok Casino doesn’t offer as wide a range of games as some of the other bigger online casino operators. However, RTG are an internationally recognised and respected online casino game provider so the games are of the highest quality. And there are enough to keep any South African online player happy for ages!
Online slots are the main focus, with table games being present if a little low on the numbers. Still, blackjack, baccarat, and video poker fans will still be able to put their cards on the table with some superb games.
Instant Play is the tab you want to click to get to the games lobbies. New Games, Slots, 2x Comps, Table Games, Video Poker, Specialty, and Progressives can all be found on the main menu bar across the upper portion of the page, but players may want to take a peek at the bottom of the page for more information. Under the heading ‘Springbok Games’ you can find all sorts of tips and further links for Blackjack, Table Games, Roulette, Video Poker, Baccarat, Slots, and Gambling Tips in general. It’s almost like a Wikipedia journey where every click takes you to another interesting and educational facet of the world we love to live in. Very impressive.
Games can be found easily through the search button or can be seen in their entirety sorted in grid or list format and arranged by Latest, A – Z, or Z – A. Games can also be searched using their current Jackpot amount.
There are over 200 slots on offer that cover every conceivable format and theme. The drop-down menu from the Slots tab lets you choose specific online slots like 3-reel, 5-reel, 6-reel, Bonus Round, Progressives, Floating Symbols, and Pays Any for fast access to a specific format for fans.
Realtime Gaming have a solid international reputation for providing innovative and entertaining games, so players won’t need to worry about the quality of their online slots, they are assured of having some top online slots action every time they put real money down and hit the spin button.
And, just because we all know how careful South African online gamblers are when it comes to playing for real money, Springbok Casino has one of our favourite options: free slots online! Once you’re registered you can play any of the slots (and most of the table games) in demo mode. This allows you to try out the games without risking losing money on a slot you really don’t enjoy. Thumbs up from the Online South Africa Casino team!
The Progressive slots (and they have Progressive table games as well!) are where the bigger jackpots are to be found.
These jackpots can run into a couple million Randelas so for players looking to try their luck and maybe hit the big ones, look out for that Progressives button.
Online table games
There are, unfortunately, only a limited selection of online table games provided by RTG, but they do cover all the most popular forms. European, Suit ‘Em Up, Perfect Pairs, Match Play, and a few other variations cover all the Blackjack fans. Poker players can enjoy video poker forms of Caribbean Stud Poker, Caribbean Hold ‘Em Poker, Let ‘Em Ride, and Tri Card Poker. For poker players wanting a more challenging game Pai Gow Poker will add some extra thrills to the game you know. And, for fans of European elegance, Baccarat and Pontoon will put you in that Monte Carlo mood. Three Card Rummy rounds out the table games at Springbok Casino.
Online video poker
A separate Video Poker tab will take you to a range of poker games that you can play solo or multi player. Options for 1 hand, 3 hand, 10 hand, and 52 hand will give you a challenging session of the world’s most popular card game while variations like Aces & Eights, All American Poker, Bonus Deuces Wild, Bonus and Bonus Deluxe Poker, Deuces Wild, and Double Bonus Poker up the ante for all your side bets.
Online specialty games
Specialty Games are a bit weird at Springbok Casino as they include games we would look for under Table Games, specifically Craps, American Roulette, and European Roulette. Be that as it may, Springbok does give a few other ‘specialty’ options like Fish Catch, Banana Jones, Treasure Tree, and Keno.
Springbok Casino online casino bonuses, promotions, and free spins

Springbok Casino Loyalty and VIP programmes
Regular players will be glad to know that it’s not all take at Springbok Casino. There is a good loyalty incentive to get players playing regularly and returning often on the Comp Points set up outlined above. It’s always nice to be rewarded for loyal custom so there are no arguments that the Springbok Casino Comp Points are a welcome add-on to the great games.
However, the VIP section is where you want to be to get your hands on exclusive bonuses and promos. This is by invitation only so be prepared to put some serious moolah behind your games to get access to the tier that makes Springbok Casino “the best high roller online casino for South African gamblers”. That is a direct quote from springbok, one that we haven’t quite managed to test because we’re not at that level yet!
Online casino banking methods
Banking methods are a little limited but that’s not a bad thing when the options are well known to any online shoppers or online gamblers.
Depositing is easy and secure, and withdrawals are all done via EFT into a properly FICA’d South African bank account. All transactions are exclusively done in South African Rands.
- Visa and Mastercard credit cards
- SID Instant Deposit
- Wire transfer
Be aware that certain banking methods can delay any withdrawal times for up to 72 hours. Wire Transfers can take up to 20 BUSINESS DAYS to reflect!
Springbok Casino Security & Support
Industry-standard encryption keeps your info and banking transactions secure.
Springbok Casino has a dedicated support team available to help you with any questions and queries. They are reached via email, scheduled phone support (book a support member and they call you), a great FAQs section with tips and advice, and a Live Chat available 24/7.
The OSAC verdict:
- South African player focus
- Exclusive to ZAR currency
- Great website design and usability
- Good bonuses
- Good support
- High wagering requirements on bonuses
- No Live Dealer games
- Limited games from only one provider
Springbok Casino may look like they are pushing that rugby nostalgia but there is far more under the hood than just a Green & Gold theme. They have a fantastic online casino that is truly welcoming for South African real money online gamblers. They make things simple by offering one provider and a select option of banking methods. They give back through their loyalty programme and they have some (allegedly, again we are not quite through those exclusive doors yet) impressive high roller VIP sweeteners.
But are they World Champs like the Bokke? Not quite yet. Simple it may be with one provider, but it only takes a set amount of time before players will be looking for added spice and other online casino games – especially the table games fans.
And yet, Springbok casino seems to be going from strength to strength among real money South African online players. They are trusted. They have a great reputation. And they are fully registered through Curacao.
So, what do we think? We like it. We like the unapologetic South African-ness of Springbok online casino, the little nods to our languages and our cultures, the ease of use and excellent functionality.
And we will keep coming back to see what’s new on a regular basis.
