Review of Lucky Red Casino
Lucky Red Casino is a Realtime Gaming online casino under the management of the Club World Group, a formerly well respected operator of casinos targeted at players in the United States. I say formerly because we have been made aware that a change in management has seen the involvement of "consultants" associated with AffPower, one of the worst rogue operators in the world today.
Warning: under new management, linked to rogue operator
The operators of this casino, the Club World group, changed hands in November 2016 after a hotly contested legal dispute between the three brothers that were joint shareholders of the business. It has since come to our attention that the inexperienced new management has brought in external advisers that are connected with the notoriously rogue AffPower group of casinos, an organisation that has sat on our blacklist for a number of years now. We no longer feel confident in saying that it is a safe place to play due to the influence of a criminal element on casino management. We urge all players to reconsider playing at this casino for their own safety.
Software and game selection
Lucky Red casino is delivered via the Realtime Gaming software suite, which installs on Windows PCs. The casino is presented professionally and the games all feature good quality graphics and sounds. If you would prefer not to install any software or you use a Mac, Lucky Red has you covered with their "instant play" flash version of the casino which required no extra downloads or installation.
Lucky Red houses a wide range of over 70 slot machines, incorporating both the modern video slot and classic three-reel varieties. The slots are easy to play and offer bet sizes to suit both the high and low rollers. The casino naturally offers you access to the RTG network's progressive jackpot pool, with several million dollar plus jackpots on offer. At the lower end of the scale, Lucky Red also has its own "in-house" Real Series video slot jackpots which are generally paid in the range of 5 to 10 thousand dollars.
You need not pass up Lucky Red if slots aren't your thing. Aside from traditional casino favourites like Roulette (both European and American style), Craps, Baccarat, Blackjack, and Caribbean Stud, you'll also find Red Dog, Pai Gow Poker, Casino War, Let'em Ride, Tri Card Poker, Caribbean Hold'em, and Vegas 3-card Rummy.
Support and Banking
Customer support is offered instantly via live text chat, or alternatively via email which has a 24 hour turnaround time. This group is known for its solid customer service team and taking care of any issues their players may encounter. There are also toll free telephone and fax support numbers and even a snail mail address.
Funds can be deposited into this casino using credit and debit cards, bitcoin, and with various e-wallets if you are outside the United States. In my experience withdrawals are usually paid within 48 hours by this casino, though with the recent change in management I am wary that this situation may worsen given the involvement of rogue advisors. There is a $4000 per week withdrawal limit, though this does not apply to progressive jackpot winnings.
We once recommended Lucky Red as one of the best choices for RTG game fans and American players in particular. However the change in management forced by the legal dispute over its ownership and the involvement of criminal elements in advising the neophyte management is a huge warning sign that things are not rosy red at this casino. For the time being it is better avoided.
