Lucky Creek is an online casino, founded in 2009, and one of the many brands run by Genesys Limited NV. The casino relies on a Curacao gaming license, issues to its owner, but the company managing it is actually a subsidiary, called Ardera Ltd (Cyprus). It’s a casino which has a bigger focus on the United States of America and Canada, and so its list of providers is more limited, involving Rival, Betsoft and Betonsoft (Saucify). In total, more than 250 casino games are available under this brand.
It’s going to be easy to use, since it’s got the standard layout found in most online casinos, with promotions at the top and the games underneath. It’s a mostly black design, which can be easier on the eyes, and it doesn’t look too bad here either.
It’s definitely worth mentioning that Bitcoin has been added to the list of possible deposit/withdrawal options, though it may not be available for all countries. More on that in our review, below.
In a day and age where thousands of casino games will be available at many sites, Lucky Creek’s collection might seem tiny, with about 250+ titles available in total. This is the smaller number of developers contributing here, only three being used (Betonsoft, Betsoft and Rival). As most developers will stay away from the US market, the offer is a bit more limited, but that can’t be avoided. Every other US-focused casino will pretty much have the same offer, or worse.
As for the structure of their games collection, they have more than 250 titles, and they are available in a couple of major categories, such as Slots, Video Poker, Table Games and Other.
Slots: While they don’t have as many titles as other casinos, more than 200 games are still available, from several developers. All three companies have their fair share of excellent games of this type, and Betsoft, in particular, has some impressive titles.
I think you will appreciate the filters you can use to dig down into their collection, find slots that come with jackpots, free spins, ways to win or bonus games, and certain ranges for their active lines. The one thing missing here is a theme-based filter so that you can see only slots based on Wild West, China, Pets, etc.
Video Poker: Not a lot of options here, but with about 11 Video Poker variants on the table, you do have the option to spend some serious time, provided that your favourites are among those present.
Table Games: I’m not overly impressed with the offer in this category either, as there are many different types of Blackjack along with European Roulette, but that’s it. Big fans of table games might not find what they’re looking for.
Other: Finally, we have four types of Keno to choose from, but I haven’t seen other popular games, such as Bingo or scratch cards.
Live Dealer: you’re out of luck here, Lucky Creek doesn’t offer anything of the sort, even though it’s an increasingly popular category at many online casinos.
It’s a casino with a mobile-friendly design, and you do have access to many of their regular games, but not to all of them. They likely have over 100 mobile-friendly games, but the older titles are probably not on the table.
It’s important to get a good welcome bonus when you’re starting up, but you need more than that in the long run. The ongoing promotions for existing players need to be decent as well. Lucky Creek looks like it’s doing a good job there.
Initially, for your first deposit of up to $300, there is an excellent 333% match bonus, of up to $999. Wagering requirements are not that low, at 60x, and for bonuses of over 100%, there is also a cap on how much you can withdraw, set to only $1,000. That might put some people off.
It continued with 45 free spins and offered on the slot Well Oil Be and new players, for the second deposit.
Ongoing promotions will range from their monthly promotions (such as Spooky October) to weekly leaderboards ($50,000 in prizes), Payday Payouts (a chance to get all deposits from the month back), Six Shooter Mondays and Happy Hour (daily 50 free spins).
SSL encryption is standard, but Lucky Creek mentions using a security system in 3 tiers, offering Advanced Security Technology and Transactional Integrity Safeguards. The 128-bit encryption is also used to secure transactions.
The casino’s fairness and trustworthiness are important as well, especially where there isn’t an established history already. We have a long history of relying on, and the casino is a respected one. As such, it’s not a major issue that the gaming license comes from Curacao, though we still would’ve preferred an EU-based license, as it’s giving players more protection.
Several currencies are available to be used, both when it comes to deposits and withdrawals. You may use USD, CAD, EUR, DKK, GBP, NOK and SEK.
Deposits at Lucky Creek can be made through several payment methods, but their availability may vary depending on the country of origin, as follows:
United States: debit and credit cards, gift cards and Bitcoin.
Canada: Skrill, EcoCard and Bitcoin.
European Union: Visa debit or credit cards, Skrill, Paysafecard, EcoCard, Neteller and Bitcoin.
Withdrawals will use mainly the same payment options, while some go away and others are newly introduced, as mentioned below. A minimum of $100 needs to be available, to be able to withdraw. Some methods require additional fees.
United States: withdrawals possible via credit card ($7 fee), regular mail check ($15.71 fee) or FedEx courier check ($30 fee).
Canada: FedEx check ($30 fee), regular mail check ($15.71 fee), instant pay web wallets (Skrill, EcoPayz and Bitcoin, all with zero fees) and credit cards ($15 fee).
European Union: FedEx check (30 EUR/GBP fee), regular check via mail (15.71 EUR/GBP fee), credit card payments ($15 fee) or instant web wallets (includes Bitcoin, Neteller, Ecopayz, Skrill, and all have zero fees).
It’s a very respectable casino, not a bootstrapped operation, and it has all the resources required to offer their players 24/7 support, 365 days a year. The obvious contact options are through email or live chat, but they also add a toll-free number, with operators standing by 24/7.
I think that there is a lot about Lucky Creek to be happy about, especially as a casino that’s established and into which you can put a lot more trust than in many of the recent gaming sites. The fact that it caters to a North American audience puts them in a special category, in which there aren’t a lot of respectable sites, so that’s one more pro for it.
On the other hand, its games selection can be limited, especially if you’re not a fan of slot machines, and I would’ve liked for the Bitcoin withdrawal option to be available for US players. There is the matter of the $1,000 limit on how much you can cash out when you use a big bonus, among other smaller things.
All in all, though, as a player from US or Canada, this is one of the better online casinos that you can get access to, at least if you want one with a good reputation.
