Australian-themed Emu Casino has universal appeal

9 April 2013

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Australia has a strong cultural tradition of gambling, with the Australian gaming public reported to have spent over $20 billion in 2008/09 alone, which accounts for an average expenditure of around $1,550 per gambler during that period. Emu Casino is an Australian-themed online casino that has been launched specifically to cater to people interested in everything Aussie.

Although Australian themed, Emu Casino believes their unconventional casino brand has universal appeal to a wider audience, wherever they are in world, stating that the vast majority of their current customers actually reside outside Australasia.

Although the site accepts a range of different currencies, everything from the “Pokies” (Australian for slot machines) and “Scratchies” (scratch cards) has been inspired by Australian terminology. Australian dollars, Canadian dollars, Euros and British Pounds are among the currencies of choice.

Built on Microgaming’s relatively new non-download “Quickfire” platform, it looks like they’re one of the first casinos to be solely based on this new software. However, with Microgaming's highly respected reputation, this inspires confidence in the new brand and the 270+ games that they have on offer.

To tempt players through the door, they currently offer a $10 free cash bonus to all new depositing players* as well as the industry-standard, 100% matched welcome deposit bonus, which they offer up to $300 Australian dollars.

Time will tell to see how they get on, in this competitive marketplace.
