They say it’s all in the name and we are about to find out just how true that is by doing a detailed review on CasinoLuck.
This online casino opened its virtual doors to the online gambling world in 1999 and rebranded in 2011 and after two decades is still going strong in a market that is ever changing and highly competitive.
The games at CasinoLuck are powered by software belonging to Aspire Global International Ltd and in Great Britain they are operated by AG Communications Ltd, both companies based in Malta. The casino holds 2 International licenses, one from the Malta Gaming Authority as well as the UK Gambling Commission, two of the most stringent of regulators who ensure their casinos are safe, secure and fair.
South Africans get to choose from a pretty decent selection of games which range from Classic or Video Slots, Table games, Scratch cards or their Live Casino games. The games can also be played on any mobile device as it is an Instant play casino which means no download is required.

CasinoLuck Slot Games
CasinoLuck has partnered with some of the most renowned software providers in the Industry such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Betsoft, Evolution Gaming, Quickspin and a dozen more in order to give their players a good choice.
They have close on 700 slot games which all have high quality graphics and we found that Betsoft had 3D Slots which seem to be very popular with South African players. Some of these 3D Slots are Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the popular Greedy Goblins, Whospunit and Under the Sea.
CasinoLuck also has a good selection of Classic Slots for players that are not too keen on video slots or Beginners that prefer the easier single line slots.
They also have a good selection of Progressive Jackpot Slots, but unfortunately South African players cannot play the Microgaming Progressives like Mega Moolah and Major Millions as Microgaming unfortunately do not allow South Africans. There will be instances where a South African player may click on a game to play and a message will pop up to say that it is not valid in their region.
However, there are many other software providers on the site that offer Progressive Jackpots and allow South African players. Ideally they should block out the Restricted games completely as we have noticed many casinos show the game, only to discover that it can’t actually be played from a specific jurisdiction.
CasinoLuck Table Games
Table Games are what land casinos were built on and keeping that tradition alive is important as any good online casino knows the traditional table game enthusiasts are an integral part of their customer base.
CasinoLuck has in the region of 30 Table Games of which players can choose from various variation when playing Blackjack, Poker and Roulette, they also have other games such as Baccarat, Dream Catcher and Video Poker is also available in single hand and multi-hand options and of course you will find the renowned Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild.
CasinoLuck Live Casino
Their Live Casino games are supplied by Evolution Gaming and players can enjoy the complete immersive real live casino experience on the go or from the comfort of their own homes without having to travel to Sun City or Monte Casino.
Some of the live casino games that are available are Lightning Roulette, Baccarat Squeeze and Diamond VIP Blackjack.
We were quite impressed with the Live Casino as it was very realistic and didn’t lag or lose connection.
CasinoLuck Mobile Casino
CasinoLuck also has a Mobile Casino for those South African players who enjoy gaming on the move and the mobile version has the same interface as the online version which has superb graphics and sound effects due to the fact that they use the latest in HTML5 and Flash Play.
CasinoLucks mobile offering is compatible with the Android and iOS platforms with no lag and all their games are in Instant play mode. More importantly CasinoLuck’s mobile casino is compatible with all South African Networks, namely Vodacom, Telkom, Cell C, MTN and Virgin Mobile.
South African Deposit & Withdrawal Options
Most South Africans prefer to play in South African Rands as it saves conversion fees and is a lot cheaper than playing in Dollars.
CasinoLuck does offer Rand currency deposit options and the ones familiar to South African players are EasyEFT, Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller and Ecocard.
Players winning R750000 or more in any given month will receive cash outs in instalments of R250 000 every 10 days, however Progressive Jackpot wins are paid out in full. All withdrawal requests are subject to a 48-96 hour pending period.
Customer Support and Security
The support team are available 7 days a week from 0.600GMT- 23.00GMT and they can be contacted on live chat or email at [email protected] and telephone on the number +356 21316590/1/3/4 which will be charged at International rates for South Africans. They also have a FAQ section and may assist in answering your query immediately.
Their games are all tested and certified by Technical Systems Testing and played directly on a NetEnt server which means no changes can be made to the RNG or pay out tables.
Casino Luck is also RNG Certified and they use SSL Encryption technology to ensure their players private and financial data is kept safe and secure at all times.
CasinoLuck’s track record speaks for itself, they have been around for two decades, are in good standing with their players, offer a good selection of games and offer a decent welcome bonus.
Overall we felt it as a decent casino with a good reputation and we liked the fact that we could deposit and play in Rands but we would recommend that they offer EasyEFT as a deposit option and get a dedicated South African telephone line in order to avoid overseas charges.
