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 $10,000 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.
A few weeks ago I tried this casino. taking a welcome bonus and playing for a few hours gave me a little bit of a win when betting terms were met.
I also tried to make a withdrawal which results very good. they processed it for less than 24 hours.
However I am still surprised with one of their games. it is the Dolphin reef. this game has the same picture and feature with in playtech. I played it for a few hours. and still wonder how can WGS and PLAYTECH have games that have almost the same game.

Another casino I absolutely love and have had no issues at all with anything here. They offer a great mobile platform where by you are able to play the tournaments they offer their players on a daily basis. They have free tournaments and Keno daily and other tournaments where you can buy in for a certain amount. They offer free bonuses and free spins and are very generous with their offers. Their support is superb and very helpful on live chat. I have come second in one of their free tournaments and won a bit of money. I wish they would add a few more slots as some slots they offer can become a bit boring. They offer bitcoin deposits should you wish to use this method. Great casino

Final update of my review of Lincoln Casino:
The first time I tried them, it did not go well because my conputer could not properly communicate with the server. Months later, I decided to give them another try. For those of you who have played at the sister casino liberty slots, the experience at Lincoln was much much better. The slots at Liberty Slots casino are extremely tight while at Lincoln Casino, they seem to be in par with Miami Club and other reputable casinos.
As a result, I did decide to play more. Before I did so, I sent them an email with my personal information to be approved. I was approved the following day. After I was approved, I played, had a small win and made a withdrawal request of $945.
Lincoln Casino processed the request in three days and on the fourth day, I received the check. A casino that has decent odds, good customer service and pay its players on time is a casino that I would always recommend.
Update on my earlier review. I was able to play again without any problems or software issues.
I was able to go back and play. However, I could not use the download version because of the connection issue. Even for the instant play version, I was only able to play very few games. But that was enough for me to me able to play my money out. I know that it's a connection issue but I am not sure where that is coming from because I don't have a connection problem with any other casinos that I play at.

Sounds like a connection issue between your server and theirs. It could be them or you or any server in between that is causing it. I just tried playing at Liberty Slots (same people) and that one worked fine for me, but I know that doesn't really help much.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

My Frustrating Experience at Lincoln Casino:
I joined Lincoln Casino in October but never tried to play until this morning when I reinstalled the software and deposited $47. They were giving a deposit bonus of 100%, which I used.
Everything went downhill from there. I kept getting disconnected from their server and could not play any game. I contacted support who advised that I restart my computer and reinstall the game. I did and was able to play only one game. After three losing spins, I tried to play many other games and the games would not download.
I tried log in their website but it was down as well. I spent over an hour trying to play another game but could not as the server was disconnecting me and the games were not downloading. Although I have $89 left in the account, I decided that it's time to move on. I wanted to give them a try and ended wasting my time and money. Luckily, I did not deposit more.

fun casino to play i didmt know that it was better then most sites the bonus is nice and the support is fair this must be a standard for all casino sites
Lincoln casino is a sister site of other WGS casinos, or probably no, but i think so because there is not so many casinos with this software, and it will be logical thing if all this casinos owned by same person or same company. I did not find anything irregular or bad during my playing in lincoln casino, this casino is probably took most of my money with this software, i made more than 10 deposits in lincoln casino and interesting and pity to know taht i had only one withdrawal, so i am losing player at this casino. But at least they send me usual no deposit bonuses, and also two my birthdays i get 50$ no deposit bonus from them, so at least i have some playing for free from them, but of course this is not cancel the fact that i am lost some money here. Withdrawal for me in this casino took 3 days, can't say that it is fast, but it is ok, for some reason i am never reversed withdrawals in any WGS casinos, or probably once, on microgaming casinos i do this much more times. Lincoln casino is good one with very interesting games.

With lincoln casino i have really great experience, it is really awesome online casino, and i am happy with almost everything i saw at this online casino. But let me start from pluses for this online casino.
+ Software. I tried only download application, casino offers games from WGS, it is very good and interesting slots, i played almost all slots, and did not find anything bad about it. This slots can pay lot of money, and also did not destroy your balance fast.
+ Customer support. I tried only live chat, and it was very good. I have no idea about working hours, and also i did not tried email support and phone support.
+ Bonuses and promotions. Lincoln casino offer many different bonuses and promotions, also sometimes it is cashback offers, and few times casino give me free cash with not big wagering requirements, and also freeroll tournaments, that much more better that at MG casinos.
+ Withdrawals. I had couple of withdrawals, and it was paid within 2-3 days, and i think it is not so bad, and i can count it as a plus.
Good online casino, i like, and for interesting games i rate it high with 5 stars.

Lincoln casino appears to me another site that owned by same owner like liberty slots. Also i think name of two this casinos say to us that they want to see united states of america players on a board and i think it is good i like that good casinos who able accept USA players still online because i read so many posts from usa players that they tired of not chance to play online casino that not real time gaming so here is good option for you players. This software called WGS i read this from casinolistings and now i will know thank you very much i am always try to collect all information like a sponge and use it if i needed that is why i like to read reviews from professional like here or just from players. I try lincoln casino 3 times and all 3 times i not have chance to try payout request but i think since this is liberty slots clone casino payout will be same time 3-5 days and it is good for such casino and also very good for USA people but should be longer for them because they can not use skrill or other ewallets only something like cards and wire transfer. Good and safe casino.

Another review from me in 3,2,1...
I discovered this casino and its software (and its slot games, of course) and immediately realised that these games on this software are quite differ from other games (also they differ strongly from RTG software slots, despite they are quite similar on the first look). My personal favourite is La Cucaracha game, 5-reel 3-rows game with 2 kinds of scatter bonus game (3x win multiplier freespins and classic "pick and earn", which, while triggered during free spins game, can also retrigger the free spins once more!). Other games are pretty similar to this, but the bonus themes and acting differs quite much.
But what makes this casino really an epic one, are daily freeroll slot tournaments - not the classic ones, where player gets a bank and scored payouts cannot increase it, but player plays slot, and the winner is who is able to earn highest amount of money (everyone starts at the same bankroll amount. usually its 50$ ).
And very enjoyable is, after losing all bankrolls in every freeroll tournament, the no deposit casino bonus, which they usually send you as an email offer in the most unexpected moment, and it brings you back to the sky 😀
Summary - very good one to register and try (also without deposit much much fun), Lincoln Casino is simply worth the time spent in.
