Lucky Red Casino is one of the top rated RTG-powered sites of today. For anybody unfamiliar with RTG (Real Time Gaming), it is a cutting-edge, TST-fairness certified online casino software platform, and one of the few reputable licensors of U.S. facing online casinos. Between RTG, which licenses some 75+ online casinos, and Lucky Red Casino's owner/manager - the Club World Casinos group - there is a good fifteen years of solid experience processing real money wagers online and making many a happy and satisfied player.
In the case of Lucky Red, OCS has been pleased with the level of transparency on their website alone. Coupled with great customer service and welcome bonuses that beat out the majority of the competition (see details further in this review), we give Lucky Red our best recommendation.
Lucky Red Casino is, itself, licensed and regulated in Curacao (Curacao eGaming) which is a self governing entity under the Kingdom of The Netherlands. Lucky Red's customer service team is operated out of the United Kingdom. Being one of the premier online gambling regulation jurisdictions today, the UK is a good place to call customer ops home. Furthermore, as an English-speaking player, you are guaranteed to get a customer rep who is also fluent in English and properly trained to answer any questions you have before and after opening an account.
Regarding accounts, Lucky Red Casino gives all players unlimited access to a "Practice" account with unlimited fun-money credits. To sign up, you must supply a valid email and postal address. At any time, players can cross over to gambling with real money by making a deposit with the online cashier. When this happens, nothing changes in terms of the software platform and games, except that access is given to RTG's progressive jackpot network.
For most players already familiar with RTG, however, there simply is no need to test the games out. Truly one of the best platforms available, Lucky Red shares screen shots of playing interfaces on their website, not to mention a no-download, instant access Flash version of the online casino. Simply click the "Play Now" link, supply contact registration details and you will have unlimited access to the platform.
As mentioned, the progressive jackpot games cannot be played in practice mode since they are tied into a real-time jackpot. However, Lucky Red has jackpot tickers on their website, letting you know just how large these jackpots are. At the time of this online casino review, several games were hovering around a quarter of a million dollars, while "The Shark" video slot was about to top the $1 million mark.
When it comes time to make a real money deposit, a secure cashier platform provides multiple fund transfer options, including popular eWallets like Neteller and ECO Card, as well as credit cards and ACH money transfers. Depending on a player's country of residence, detailed instructions are provided for each deposit/withdrawal method. Players should note that Lucky Red takes great caution in protecting private information and preventing fraud. As such, every player must return a faxback form as proof of identity before making an initial withdraw.
If you take advantage of a welcome bonus, you will need some time to meet the play-through requirement anyway. In the case of Lucky Red's very generous 400% Slots Bonus up to $4,000 Free, the play-through is a very reasonable 25x. And for their 100% Blackjack/Video Poker Bonus up to $1,000 Free, a 50x play-through is required. Players should note that most online casinos don't offer bonuses that allow Blackjack and Video Poker to meet the play-through. And of those that do, the percentage of each wager is usually drastically lowered, resulting in a play-through somewhere in the neighborhood of 200x and higher. In other words, Lucky Red Casino's welcome offer is definitely one of the best Blackjack bonuses you will find online.
The bonuses don't end here either. To honor loyal, returning players, Lucky
Red always has a continual bonus offer available for redemption in the cashier.
At the time of this review, two separate weekly promotions were being offered
(up to $90,000 in bonus money),
including 30 x 60% bonus coupons for play on slots, keno and scratch cards, 30 x
45% bonus coupons for play on Blackjack and Video Poker, and 30/50% coupons to
play on Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker and Caribbean Stud games. There are also
similar Special Weekday and Weekend promotions. Of course, you are not obligated to take any bonuses whatsoever. Just
always remember to play safe and smart!
