Great Online Casino Software Providers
As I already mentioned, Luckland is powered by both NetEnt and Betsoft, and of these two providers, I’m more for NetEnt, but’s just my personal preference. Betsoft is good, don’t get me wrong. They were after all one of the first software providers to start creating casino games rendered in 3D artwork and, believe me, it shows. Their games also have a somewhat personal feel and this is achieved by giving their games characters a level of interactivity. For instance, in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Online Video Pokies you’re given a game that takes place in a Victorian-styled laboratory/library where the good doctor stands alongside the reels and every time you spin the reels he either says something in a camp British accent to spur you on or he’ll literally walk towards the screen and busy himself with his research and then return to the reels. It’s these little touches that make Betsoft games really cool.
I’ve spoken about NetEnt at length and I have no qualms about singing their praises some more! To date, they are making some of the best online casino games as well as mobile casino games which they refer to as Touch™ games. Great to look at with great storylines that lead to cool interactive bonus games, these guys have gotten it right!
Here's what some of our readers had to say about Luckland Casino
“Luckland – I like the name and I like what they have to offer. There are lots of NetEnt and Betsoft-powered games here, which makes me happy as NetEnt is a fave of mine, plus there’s an awesome customer support service via live chat, email, or phone.”
“Luckland has a lot of top-quality games, including my absolute favourite by NetEnt, Drive Multiplier Mayhem. The casino offers both PC- and mobile-friendly games and the site itself is very easy to navigate. What’s more, the casino offers surprise bonuses every week – pretty cool!”
“Luckland has some nice titles, but I was extremely disappointed that there weren’t any live casino games, which are what I most like to play. It makes me think that they’re not moving with the times. Also, why aren’t there any progressive jackpot games? That’s just weird!”
“With a name like Luckland, you’d think they’d have progressive jackpot pokies, but they don’t. What’s more, they don’t even have live dealer games, so that’s a real miss for me. Hopefully that’s something they’ll sort out in the future, but until then, consider me unimpressed.”
Gaming Choices at Luckland Casino
Luckland Casino is decently stocked, but I do have a few reservations, namely the fact that they do not have live casino games – something considered a must these days. I think in many ways the live casino movement is still in the process of taking off, but there’s no denying its appea,l and the fact that many other operators are offering these games is also indicative of moving with the times. But then again, it could just be the nature of the deal that the casino has struck with its software providers. The other reservation I have is that there aren’t any progressive jackpot games available. Having said that, Luckland still delivers with solid entertainment because they’re stocked with online pokies, mobile pokies, online video poker, online blackjack and online roulette. Within all these categories you’ll find quite a bit to choose from. Games like Pai Gow Poker caught my eye, as did keno and something called Virtual Racebook 3D – a simulated horseracing game. Like many players out there, I’m a pokies fan so I was very pleased with the selection. I enjoyed NetEnt’s Drive Multiplier Mayhem, a cool street racing themed online pokies game, but that’s because I like fast cars. I’m a bit of a history buff too so I got a kick out of playing Gonzo’s Quest Online Pokies, a game about a conquistador and his quest for gold in South America.
Promotions and Bonuses at Luckland
The welcome bonus offer is a staple at most, if not all, online casinos. It’s the oldest method of luring players to the casino and to date it’s still an effective tool. Before taking up a welcome bonus, you need to ask yourself what kind of gaming experience you’re looking to get, and I say this because a bonus can be a good thing or rather average. If you want to have more casino credits with which to play, then a bonus is beneficial. There are always wagering requirements to a bonus which means that it has to be wagered a number of times before you can make a withdrawal. For this reason I would say that if you’re going to take up a large segment of a bonus, then go big. Bet big in order to win big. Once you’ve achieved a big win, lower your bets and slowly chip away at those wagering requirements. It’s the best advice I can give you. At the end of the day it’s all gambling, and the fact of the matter is that players have won big on welcome bonuses, so it’s not an impossible feat. With Luckland you’ll receive a Match up to NZ$ 1000 in bonus + 150 Free Spins. The casino also offers a surprise bonus every week, so keep a lookout for that.
Banking and Support
Luckland Casino does business with the usual banking methods. If you’re already acquainted with the online casino world, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. If you’re a new comer to this potentially lucrative world, you’ll be pleased to know that Luckland accepts New Zealand Dollars, so no need for a currency exchange. You can use your Visa or MasterCard to deposit as well as Neteller, Skrill, ecoPayz and EasyEFT. These are basically cards, virtual wallets and online payment mechanisms. They’re all safe and reliable – of course the onus is also on you to keep your account details to yourself and not lying around anywhere. When it comes to withdrawing you can use Skrill, Neteller, ecoPayz or a bankwire. I always opt for Neteller – it does both deposits and withdrawals, it’s highly reputable and it’s backed by MasterCard.
Luckland conducts all its communication by the telephone, a live chat application and via email. That’s A-OK by me. As long as you have those three methods of communication, it ensures that players can always reach you. I tend to look down a bit on casinos that only have one or two out of those three. Luckland has them all.
