JungleRaja – the new king in town!
If you didn’t hear already, Showlion casino rebranded in April/May and is now known as JungleRaja.
And no, I’m not talking about that song by Nucleya.
I’m talking about one of the freshest gambling sites to grace our screens.
JungleRaja is an online casino catered solely for the Indian audience. It is the new project from the same owners as ShowLion (Seven Digital Solutions N.V.) and licensed with a Curacao gambling license.
You should consider this review of JungleRaja as just the appetizer of what is about to come.
Since I reviewed ShowLion, G2G has helped more than 5000 people to sign up and win money.
I’m sure JungleRaja’s online casino will provide the same or better gambling features like:
- Instant deposits in Rupees with UPI and Net Banking
- Indian casino games like Teen Patti & Andar Bahar
- Poker games with real cards
- Exciting and valuable promotions
- Trusted 24/7 support
Let’s get down to it and see whether JungleRaja can be expected to join the ranks of the best real money online casino sites in India.
Is JungleRaja secure to play at?
In short, yes. Since it’s launch in May 2020, it’s quickly becoming one of the preferred online casinos by many Indian players.
JungleRaja holds it’s license in Curacao and you can view their legitimacy by checking their license no 8048/JAZ2018-047. It also protects your money and data by using secure Cloudflare SSL encryption.
New casinos often have a hard time earning their trustworthy badge.
The main reason why I trust Jungle Raja is down to the fact that it’s essentially Showlion – but rebranded to make it more sleek and appealing.
Showlion was enjoyed by many Indian players.
Review of payment methods at JungleRaja
Payments were definitely the best bit of JungleRaja’s predecessor, Showlion.
And you’ll be relieved to hear that hasn’t changed on this new rebranded site.
Deposits and withdrawals are made through Net Banking and UPI transfers. This means you can easily get your money within 24h!
Other casinos in India force you to make withdrawals with e-Wallets such as Skrill or Neteller, which are quite inconvenient can have additional fees on your transactions.
Additional payment methods are:
- Visa & Mastercard
- e-Wallets like Skrill, Neteller & Ecopayz
- Mobile payments such as Paytm & Google Pay
- Bank wire transfers
Withdrawals are simple, however, what I do is that you MUST verify your account with your PAN number.
How to withdraw at JungleRaja
How do I withdraw?
Firstly, make sure that you are trying to withdraw real funds and not bonus funds (bonus funds generally need to be wagered before cashing out). Once you’re sure, go to the cashier and choose the method that you deposited with to withdraw your funds back to.
Do I need to verify my account?
Yes, you will need to verify any documents that are being requested before your withdrawal can be processed. This is to make sure that your money and identity are safe.
How long does it take for my withdrawal to reach my bank account/e-wallet?
Withdrawals are processed within 24 hours, with exceptions of Sundays, bank holidays, and outside bank business hours. If you’re experiencing a delay, it’s best to contact customer support.
What is the minimum amount I can withdraw from JungleRaja?
The minimum you can withdraw at once is ₹500 through Netbanking.
A cracking welcome bonus at JungleRaja from the get-go!
Know any online casinos that offer you bonus funds up for joining without depositing?
I do – JungleRaja!
You’ve got essentially 4 opportunities up for grabs as a new customer and one of them requires no deposits to be made to get it.
I’ve covered them below:
First up, get your no-deposit bonus of ₹500 after you register for the first time.
You’ll need to use the code b500b.
Simply enter it into the ‘bonus code’ box when you register and it will be sitting in your funds waiting for you.
First deposit bonus
After playing through your free ₹500 (and hopefully already won as I did), you’ll want to keep the momentum going and take advantage of the next bonus opportunity.
This time, it’s a 100% matched deposit bonus up to ₹10,000.
To get this, you’ll need to put money on your account for the first time and use code 100FIRST.
Second deposit bonus
If you’re ready for more real money deposits, you can also get a second deposit bonus.
This time, upon transferring Rupees, you’ll get a 50% bonus up to ₹10,000.
All you need to activate it is this code 50SECOND.
Third deposit bonus
Finally, your last chance to get the most from this exciting welcome offer should not be missed.
Once you’ve made your third deposit, you’ll get a 25% bonus up to ₹10,000.
You know how it goes at this point, just enter the code 25THIRD.
Terms and conditions to watch out for when using these welcome bonuses
- Only deposits made through NetBanking can qualify for deposit bonus offers.
- The ₹500 free bonus must be wagered 150 times before you can withdraw.
- Deposit bonuses must be wagered 20 times before they are converted to real cash.
- The maximum winnings that can be obtained from the free bonus are ₹3950.
- Only deposits made through NetBanking can qualify for deposit bonus offers.
- The minimum deposit for a deposit bonus is ₹100.
- The wagering requirement has to be met within 14 days after the bonus has been activated.
Considering that JungleRaja is the new kid on the block, they’ve consistently released some great promotions since May 2020.
However, apart from the very generous welcome bonus, there aren’t any ongoing offers available just yet.
I’m sure in time that it will catch up to the legacy that Showlion left behind.
JungleRaja VIP Program
JungleRaja ticks all the boxes when it comes to a VIP Program.
It’s simple to follow and easy to get involved in.
The program has three tiers and you’ll climb them faster than any mountain you’ll find at the jungle.
Speaking of jungle, the tiers are represented by three of the biggest cats that you’ll meet there: a Puma, a Leopard, and a Lion.
Each level has it’s own perks which I’ve put in a table for you below:
|VIP Level ||Deposits ||Level Hold (30 Days) ||Deposit and Cashout Priority ||Dedicated VIP Managers ||Cash Back Bonus ||Increased Deposit and Cashout Limits ||Special Gifts (Birthdays, Holidays, Special Occasions) ||VIP Parties |
|Puma ||Rs. 800,000+ ||Rs. 160,000 ||No ||Yes ||Up to 5% ||No ||No ||No |
|Leopard ||Rs. 16,00,000+ ||Rs. 400,000 ||Yes ||Yes ||Up to 7% ||No ||No ||No |
|Lion ||Rs. 40,00,000+ ||Rs. 800,000 ||Yes ||Yes ||Up to 10% ||Yes ||Yes ||Yes |
Casino Games at JungleRaja
JungleRaja really emphasises their ‘homegrown in India’ brand throughout the website.
What I mean by that is you’ll see all the most popular online casino games in India featured regularly.
This includes my two personal favourites: Andar Bahar and Teen Patti. Two super simple games which are easy to rack up an impressive bankroll to while playing. Teen Patti cash games are seriously exciting!
They have the industry edge because they are focussing solely on the Indian market for now – this allows extra time to really focus on what makes their players tick.
On the other hand, there’s a simple feature missing from their games lobby that really grinds my gears – the humble search bar. Without it, you’ll have to live in hope that you’ll find the game you’re looking for after a few scrolls of the page.
Questionable navigation lobby aside, this casino platform has a great selection of carefully picked games.
Take a look at some of the most popular categories below to see for yourself.
The online slot machines at JungleRaja come from reward winning software providers such as NetEnt, Microgaming and iSoftBet.
The slot machines at JungleRaja dominate in terms of numbers, with the site boasting this as the largest category.
There are however those that outshine the others!
If you’re looking for some fun slots to try out for the first time, look no further:

- Bollywood Story
- Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot
- Book of Alchemy
JungleRaja sure has an impressive selection of online slot machines bu it is missing a collection of progressive online jackpots such as Microgaming’s Mega Moolah and NetEnt’s Major Millions.
Table and video poker games
Table games are plentiful on JungleRaja’s platform.
It’s nice to see this because it’s common for these games to be overlooked. If you take Royal Panda, for example, they’re a kick-ass casino with a measly 7 table and video poker games.
JungleRaja is home to 124 table games and counting.
They’re the perfect option for days when you want to use strategy bets and avoid waiting for other players to place their bets at the live casino tables.
Three must-try table games at JungleRaja
If you’re as much of a fan of live casino as I am, you’re going to love the selection of live tables at JungleRaja.
They have well over 100 different games to choose from, including EZUGI’s own Teen Patti and Andar Bahar live games (yay!). Of course, this is kind of expected from an online casino that’s specifically tailored for Indian players.
Evolution Gaming is the top software provider when it comes to live casino games and you can, of course, find all of their top games here too.
“What about the minimum bets?” I hear you ask.
Well, unfortunately, it’s kind of difficult to find. I searched high and low and eventually realised that you need to actually be sitting at the table before you can see this info. Total brainfart on my part, or poor layout? I’ll let you decide!
Throughout the live casino, I was able to find tables that were as low as ₹50 and as high as a couple of lakh. Something for everyone!
If you love the thrill of taking a coin from you’re wallet and scratching the surface to reveal an exciting win – JungleRaja is the right choice for you.
There’s an impressive choice of over 60 digital scratchcards that you can choose to autoplay or scratch with your mouse.
The obvious choices are all here including my personal favourite Elephant Scratch with odds of roughly 1: 3.6.

- Scratch off Ra
- Super Expanding Splashcard
- Raid the Piggy Bank
JungleRaja on your mobile device
For me, the best online casinos have optimised their whole website so it transitions effortlessly between desktop and mobile browser.
Despite many gamblers opinions, I’m a fan of not having to download a specific casino app (that precious phone memory should be reserved for the 1000 photos that you’re too lazy to transfer to the cloud).
JungleRaja has managed to do this very well.
In fact, I like using the mobile version even better than using it on a desktop.
And there’s a reason for that!
If you saw my rant in the casino games section of this review, you’ll know that the lack of search bar navigation in the lobby irks me.
However, the mobile version that you use on any Android or iPhone device HAS a search bar.
You better believe it.
Apart from that, you’ll be able to do everything that you can do on a desktop. You can deposit, contact customer support, play live casino games and withdraw.
Any doubts that you may have while navigating through this new online casino will be answered by the lovely customer support team at JungleRaja.
The chat is offered in both English and Hindi support.
JungleRaja claims that live chat is available 24/7 but while playing with them I did notice periods where the chat icon disappeared.
However, this may be initial teething issues and testing at quieter times throughout the day.
Apart from that, the customer service team have been knowledgable and helpful so far.
You reach them and get a response within 24 hours from their email address [email protected].
After reviewing JungleRaja, I have to say that this is one section that could certainly do with some improvements.
It’s difficult to enter a market with a huge saturation of online casinos with outstanding responsible gaming features.
Take LeoVegas for example, the other ‘King of the Casino’ even has its own dedicated website for all matters surrounding gambling responsibly.
I did read on the site that JungleRaja offers the usual limits that you would find at other online casinos.
I initially had problems with finding this loss limit feature so I contacted customer support who made the change possible from their side.
Top 5 reasons to play at JungleRaja
Overall, JungleRaja is starting off on a reasonable note with much room for improvement in the future.
It’s far from perfect, especially when compared to other great Indian online casinos like 10CRIC and Pure Casino.
I’m personally impressed with this up and coming casino because of the home comforts of playing familiar games and using local payment methods but here are my top 5 reasons why you should give JungleRaja a go for yourself:
- Comprehensive VIP Program.
- Good choice of local Indian Games.
- Google pay and Paytm.
- Hindi customer support.
- Secure and license-regulated.
