Review of Lincoln Casino
When it comes to online casinos, many tend to blend together a bit. This is due in part to the common software that many casinos use. Thus, we were pleased to find out that WGS Technology powers the recently launched Lincoln Casino, as it provides some badly needed variety to the chief target market for this casino, namely American players.
Software and games
As noted above, Lincoln Casino is powered by WGS Technology. The software has been around for many years now under various previous guises such as Odds On Gaming and Vegas Technology. These days there are very few casinos running the software, which can be described as similar to other mid-range software packages such as RTG and Rival software.
The games load very quickly and they play smoothly, and the wide variety of slots could keep you entertained for hours. Many of these games have been around for the best part of a decade now so it is fair to say that while they play well, they do look fairly dated in comparison to some of the newer competition. Some of the better slots at Lincoln Casino include Monster Money, Vegas Party, and Safari.
If you are looking to hit it big, Lincoln Casino offers progressive jackpot games which may award five figure wins at this point in time. Games included in the progressive section of Lincoln Casino include five classic style reel slots such as Red, White & WIn and Mega Money Mine, along with Progressive Blackjack, and Island Stud Poker.
Table games are well represented at Lincoln Casino, and we found many casino staples such as blackjack, 3 card poker, roulette, baccarat, craps, and more, with several variations of the titles expanding the library to 14 games. The software really shines with these games, as they are smooth and very quick to play. Video poker is also present, with games ranging from Deuces Wild to Jacks or Better. We found 15 different video poker games at Lincoln Casino, and once again the games are quick to load and easy to play.
We rate the casino tournaments at WGS Technology casinos as probably the best on the market and Lincoln Casino is no exception. The tournaments are designed so that you start with a chip stack and you play as little or as much as you want in an attempt to build the biggest stack. This is more enjoyable and strategic than the Microgaming style "win box" tournaments where your only strategy is to click spin as fast as humanly possible.
Banking and customer support
While the software provides a great experience at Lincoln Casino, the banking system is nothing to write home about, particularly for those in the USA who the casino is clearly targeting. Although we give American friendly casinos a little bit of slack in the banking department due to financial restrictions, we can only describe Lincoln Casino as adequate in this respect, with the only method available to Americans to deposit appearing to be credit or debit cards and an over the counter money transfer service such as Western Union. Players from other countries may make use of e-wallets such as Neteller or Skrill along with Credit Cards.
Withdrawals for U.S. based players can be made via Cheque and Western Unions while players from other countries have the aforementioned e-wallets along with Wire Transfer or Debit Cards. The fees are horrendous on non e-wallet withdrawals though, with a wire or cheque costing you $45. The casino limits payouts to $5000 per week, with any amounts greater than that split up and sent in weekly instalments. The casino does not however put the balance back into your account and make you request a new withdrawal each week which is a positive note. There is a 48 hour reversal period that, in our experience, the casino will not allow you to flush early, however we have seen withdrawals to an e-wallet within 3 days or so.
Customer service is a bright spot at Lincoln Casino, as the staff is friendly, supportive, and willing to do whatever they can to assist the player. Help is available through email, telephone, and live chat, and each option seemed to quickly pick up when we attempted contact.
Lincoln Casino appears to be unlicensed
One concerning factor for us when dealing with Lincoln Casino is that it does not appear to be licensed by any gaming regulatory body. As is the case with its sister casino Liberty Slots, we were unable to obtain this information from the casino, as reps stated that they don’t want to reveal that information. We do know that the casino's servers are located in Curacao, but the licensing authority CIGA does not appear to endorse the casino.
Terms and conditions are also incomplete, as you can tell that Lincoln Casino simply used a template to form this documents. It refers to itself therein as "the Company" and it is obvious upon close inspection that the operators have gone to great lengths to conceal their identities. It is hard for us to recommend a casino that is unwilling to reveal its licensing or has incomplete terms, no matter how well it is run.
Overall we feel that Lincoln Casino is a good casino that offers a fun library of games, and it has proven to be reliably run over the last year or so. However it is undermined by restricted banking choices for its primary customers and a lack of disclosure regarding the casino’s license.
