The software developer Netent has just terminated its contract with Lucky8. It is therefore no longer possible to find their games in this online casino, but instead there will soon be games from Betsoft, iSoftBet and Quickspin, as reported in this article.
Review written by Sophie Couard, on November 17, 2017.
Lucky 8 is a very young online casino that was just founded in 2017. However, the casino may be new, but the operator is not, and they have a lot of experience in the online gaming industry. The casino has already made a name for themselves, notably because of the game selection and fantastic bonus offers. This casino has a lot of potential to grow, and you can find out what it has to offer in the rest of this review.
An interesting welcome bonus for new players
As a new player at Lucky 8 you can choose from two different welcome bonuses. One is the Discovery Bonus, and for a deposit of €20 you will get an addition are €30 as a bonus and can play with €50. On the other side, the Adventure Bonus is a 100% bonus up to €200. The bonus terms for this welcome bonus include wagering requirements of 40x the bonus amount that need to be fulfilled before a withdrawal can be made, and there is also a maximum bet size of €5 per spin or €0.50 per bet line applicable. You will have 14 days to meet the wagering requirements, otherwise the bonus expires. Also keep in mind, that payments made with Skrill, Neteller or Paysafecard are excluded from receiving a bonus.
The casino also has some interesting regular promotions, for example a deposit bonus on Saturday where you can get 25% up to €250 on your first three deposits, or a Lucky Spin promotion where you can win 100 free spins for a selected slot. The promotions can also change, it's best to check back regularly to see if there is anything new.
Around 200 online casino games from popular developers
The game selection at Lucky 8 currently includes the games from Netent, Play'n GO and Yggdrasil. The games are all instant games that can be played directly in the browser, and you won't have to download a casino software. The website is also fully optimised to be compatible with many mobile devices, and you can try your luck in the games wherever you are, provided your Internet connection is strong enough.
The selection of online video slots is still relatively small, but we hope that it will grow in the future. However, it includes some of the most popular games that you can find on the Internet, including for example Prissy Princess, Crime Scene, Leprechaun Goes To Hell, Copy Cats, Royal Masquerade, Sparks, Dazzle Me, Twin Spin, Vikings Go Wild and Gemix. The selection of jackpot slots is also very small, and you can only find a handful of games with local progressive jackpots. Unfortunately, the website does not yet offer the large progressive network jackpots, but this may change in the future. You can currently try your luck at Divine Fortune, Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Cosmic Fortune, Mega Joker and Super Lucky Frog.
You can also find a decent selection of online table games, including blackjack, roulette, casino poker and other dice and card games. The website also offers access to the Netent live casino, and you can play roulette or blackjack against real dealers in an authentic casino environment, where you can see the table through a webcam and even chat with the dealers.
The game selection currently includes:
- Slots: 189
- Jackpot Games: 5 (Local Jackpots)
- Table Games: 33
- Live-Casino: 9 (Roulette, Blackjack)
Licence, security and payments
The online casino Lucky 8 has a licence from the Curaçao Gambling Commission and is regularly audited for fairness of the games and compliance. Making a payment is also safe, as the website is secured with SSL encryption, and the operator does not disclose any of your private or financial information to unauthorised third parties.
If you have a problem with your player account or a general question you can contact the casino support department around the clock, 7 days a week. You can either send them an e-mail or reach them through the live chat on the website and chat to a support agent directly. Website and support are available in the languages English, French, German, Norwegian and Swedish.
The accepted payment methods are:
- Bank transfer
The casino accepts many different payment methods, from credit cards to e-wallets and vouchers. The minimum deposit amount is €10 and the minimum withdrawal amount is €30. A withdrawal is subject to a 2-day pending time during which the withdrawal is checked. While it is pending you can still cancel it, and the money is credited back to your player account. After it has been processed it depends on the chosen payment method how long it will take before you have the money. A bank transfer or Visa withdrawal can take up to 5 business days, e-wallet withdrawals are available a few moments after they have been processed. The casino may also ask you for verification of your identity before they process the first withdrawal.
Lucky 8 online casino is an up-and-coming casino with a lot of potential to become one of the leaders. Since it is still a very new website, the operator is still in the phase of proving themselves to the players, but they have already gained a lot of recognition and shown that they are serious. The game selection may be a little small, but it includes some of the most popular games on the Internet, and we hope that it will grow significantly in the future, and also include more jackpot slots and live games. Regarding the payments, the terms are fair, but the pending time may put some people off, but if you don't mind waiting a little, it is not a big problem. On a more positive note, the wagering requirements of the bonuses are very fair, and you have a higher chance of fulfilling them then in some another casinos.
