Lucky247 Casino Bonus Review
Microgaming fans, take heed – Lucky247 Casino is packed with your favourite casino games. Other than the headlining progressive jackpots like Mega Moolah and King Cashalot, and blockbuster themed games like Game of Thrones and the Dark Knight, Lucky247 also has a healthy selection of card and table games. The casino is famous for its slew of flash bonuses, which are lots of fun. There is also a regular welcome bonus that new players can opt for. In general, we find the welcome bonus here not very conducive to winning unless you plan to play progressive games only. In this review we’ll take a critical look a
£500 Welcome Bonus
On signing up, players are bonuses on their first three deposits.
- 1st deposit: 100% up to £250
- 2nd deposit: 25% up to £150
- 3rd deposit: 50% up to £100
- 40x wagering requirement
- Minimum deposit is £20
- Maximum cashout is 6x first deposit, except progressive wins
As usual, game contributions favour slots at 100%, followed by most table pokers at 50%.
This is the basic bonus, at first sight, it seems like an okay bonus. While the amounts and rate are not exceptionally high, the numbers are still acceptable.
However, once we started digging through the terms, we found some rather a disappointing limitation – even after meeting the wagering requirement, you may only withdraw a maximum of 6x your first deposit. That means if your first deposit was £200, then you are allowed a maximum win of £1,200, whatever else you win will be forfeited. With a 40x wagering requirement, this limitation makes this bonus non-profitable.
The exception to this 6x rule is progressive wins. Thus, to beat the restriction and to come out profitable with this bonus, you should play exclusively on progressive games while on the bonus at Lucky247. Remember, other than Mega Moolah, there are also many smaller progressive jackpots that payout much more frequently, such as Jackpot Deuces, Fruit Fiesta, Lots a Loot, and Progressive Cyberstud.
50 Free Spins for downloading
If you’re playing on the downloaded software (which only works for PC), the bonus above comes with the option to get 50 free spins.
- 50 free spins on Jurassic Park, or Hot as Hades
- Spins awarded on first deposit, min. £20
- Winnings from free spins subject to 50x playthrough
- Winnings from free spins limited to £100
Financially, this is not a good deal at all. Considering the spins are not a no-deposit bonus, the wagering requirement is high, and the cap on the winnings very low. With this particular playthrough requirement plus winning cap, you will not walk away with a profit.
However, if you are simply interested in testing some of Microgaming’s games, then these free spins, like the main bonus, are a good choice – 50 spins along with extra play money will get you a good feel of the games so you can decide which ones you would like to spend your real money on.
In terms of banking, there’s a multitude of options at Lucky247, covering all the popular payment methods. Skrill, Paysafecard, Neteller, UKash, Poli and more can all be found next to credit and debit cards. Lucky247 does not specify the withdrawal times at the casino.
We were not impressed here. We tried their Live Chat on a Friday evening, and there was no agent available. Instead we got a message asking us to email our question to the customer service team. We tried again early on Saturday; it took us a few minutes to get through, and the agent was competent enough. Other than live chat and email, you can also try their phone lines and Skype.
Lucky247 is overall a sufficient Microgaming casino. There are lots of seasonal promotions, like Rugby Trivia, that are a lot of fun, even though we found their welcome bonus to be structured to be not very profitable for players. If you love Microgaming games and think of bonuses as a simple way to sample more games, then Lucky247 is a fun place to play.
