Review of Lucky247 Casino
Lucky247 Casino sounds exactly like a place where every gambler wants to be. This relatively new Malta-licensed casino runs on Microgaming's Quickfire platform and offers around 200 games which are playable on the website or, in many cases, on your mobile phone or device. We took it for a spin to see if it was a cut above the multitude of other Microgaming casinos.
Software and games selection
Lucky 247 Casino uses perennial favourite Microgaming to supply its collection of 200 or so casino games. All the games are playable in browser, and a smaller number are also available for play on your phone or mobile device. I am told that a downloadable version of the casino is due for release in the near future, but for now it's "instant play" only. The website is organised as we have come to expect browser based casinos to be these days: i.e. a grid of pageable game logos, with the ability to search on the game title and/or narrow down the games displayed by category. It does the job well enough but is nothing that you haven't seen before.
The most popular Microgaming slots are present, including Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II and Break Da Bank Again, as are a range of progressive jackpots, including the famous The Dark Knight and Mega Moolah. For table game afficianodos, there's a wide selection of roulette, blackjack, baccarat and video poker. The bad news for table gamers though, is that Lucky 247 does not have any live casino games. I found that all games ran smoothly across PC and mobile platforms and I didn't experience any lags in game play which I have seen from time to time at other Microgaming Quickfire casinos.
Banking and customer support
When it comes to deposits, Lucky247 casino offers players the main options including e-wallets, debit and credit cards as well as a few local payment options such as Euteller and iDeal. You can see the full current list in the summary column elsewhere on this page. When I requested my first withdrawal, Lucky247 requested documents to verify my details, and this was done within 12 hours. The casino holds all withdrawals for 48 hours, giving you the opportunity (or should I say temptation) to reverse and play with your winnings again. However I am happy to report that a quick request via live chat was enough to have the pending withdrawal immediately flushed and sent to processing. Having said that it was still another 48 hours before the money arrived in my Neteller account, so I'm not sure that flushing the withdrawal made any difference apart from making it impossible for me to reverse.
Lucky247 has a daily withdrawal limit of €10,000, which is unlikely to inconvenience anyone but the highest of high rollers. However I was disappointed to find that firstly, they don't process withdrawals made over the weekend, and they also have another clause that limits players that win more than 5x their total deposits at the casino to a much more restrictive €4000 per week. On a positive note, progressive jackpot wins are excluded from any payment limits.
Customer support is one area where Lucky247 Casino definitely lives up to it's name. The casino offers 24/7 live chat, email, Skype and telephone support. With so many options and round the clock accessibility, it is simple to find the help you need when you need it. The Skype support in particular is a nice touch and is a good way to save yourself a bit of money as opposed to making an international phone call.
Security and fairness
Lucky247 Casino employs standard 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) digital encryption in order to protect all transactions and gameplay over the Internet. In terms of fairness and accountability, Lucky247 has earned an eCOGRA seal of approval which indicates that the casino meets the organisation's standards of compliance. They also publish eCOGRA audited reports of the game payout percentages each month which provides a level of comfort that the games are fair and no cheating is going on.
Lucky247 Casino is a good casino, but there is little to differentiate it from the countless other Microgaming Quickfire casinos around these days. This is not necessarily a bad thing though because you know exactly what you are going to get here. It offers promotions for PC and mobile/tablet gaming, multiple 24/7 support options and players can enjoy the best range of Microgaming games without any lag. However the casino could be improved with a relaxation, or preferably removal, of the "big win" withdrawal policy.
