Welcome to our Lucky Admiral Casino review.
Lucky Admiral is a newer casino with only a couple years of experience. But you don’t have to worry about that – we found a few clues as to why we think they’re relatively safe to join.
Let’s just say they work with a few legit partners in the banking and software departments.
But that doesn’t mean they’re a good casino overall, much less a good casino for you. That’s what we want to help you determine with our review below.
Anyway, enough teasing – let’s jump into this review so we can figure out if Lucky Admiral’s banking options, promotions and games are worth a recommendation from us.
Lucky Admiral is one of several casinos under the Jumpman Gaming network of online casinos and bingo rooms. Some of their sister casino and bingo brands (none of which I’ve heard of before) include:
Lucky Admiral is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission (‘UKGC’) and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (‘AGCC’). They’ve been in business since 2015.
They’re not recommended at ThePogg.com. The reasons for that are:
(-1) We find Lucky Admiral Casino’s Progressive jackpot payout limit of £10,000 per day to be predatory. We also find their clause which states that they can raise increase or decrease any player withdrawal limit to be unfair for players.
Now, I checked Lucky Admiral’s terms and I didn’t see this or anything like it. That goes for both the £10,000 per day jackpot limit as well as their ability to raise or decrease a player’s withdrawal limit.
Those are the two biggest reasons why ThePogg.com doesn’t recommend them, yet those reasons appear to be invalid now.
As for other review sites…
I couldn’t find any scam/scandal warnings in Google, either.
Overall, their reputation seems fair.
Lucky Admiral accepts players from the following countries:
You can contact support using one of the following methods:
I sent them an email to ask about their progressive jackpot win (cash out) limits. They responded in about 12 hours with a helpful response to my question.
You can use the following methods:
Lucky Admiral says they accept PayPal. This is good news for you because PayPal is usually picky about which gambling sites they let use them for payment processing.
You can use:
The min you can cash out is £30. The max you can cash out is £1,000 per day, £3,000 per week and £5,000 per month.
£5,000 per month is pretty weak, and their support told me that it DOES NOT exclude progressive jackpot winnings. That’s even weaker yet.
Their welcome offer is a 100% deposit bonus up to £200, plus 20 free spins on the Starburst slot machine. You can claim this offer on your 2nd and 3rd deposit, too, for a grand total of £600 + 60 free spins.
The playthrough on this offer is a STEEP 65x the deposit and bonus. You’re also capped at cashing out £500 in winnings once you fulfill the playthrough. The bonus money is not cashable.
Winnings from the free spins is treated like bonus money. You’ll need to roll that over before you can cash it out.
The following games do not contribute towards the wagering requirement: blackjack, roulette, any other casino style games, hi lo games, video poker, keno and progressive jackpot slots.
They have a VIP program. Points here are referred to as ‘Kudos.’ And like all programs, the more points you earn, the higher up the VIP ladder you’ll climb.
Here’s a chart showing all the tiers in their program, how many Kudos it takes to reach each level and the perks available to each level:
|Kudos Req||100||101 – 1,000||1,001 – 2,500||2501 – 5,000||5,000+|
To maintain your level each month, you’ll need to meet the minimum monthly wager requirement. Here are the requirements for each level:
You can see the program for yourself at www.luckyadmiral.com.
The work with Microgaming, and at this particular casino, you’ll have 200+ games to choose from. I counted 209, if you want to be exact.
They offer everything from slots to blackjack to video poker. You’ll find a little bit of everything here, EXCEPT for live dealer games.
One of my biggest complaints about their game section is that there’s very little organization. You can sort their games by:
This makes it a pretty big pain to find anything specific, regardless of what you prefer to play. The fastest way to find a specific game is to use their search function. Otherwise, you’ll have to wade through the mess until you come across what you’re looking for.
Anyway, the following are some examples of games you can play at Lucky Admiral:
Each section can be summed up with one word: underwhelming.
If you know anything about Microgaming software, you know the options here pale in comparison to the total number of options available at any casino who uses the entire Microgaming library.
For one thing, they fail to include all the unique video poker and table games you can play. Then, on top of that, there are lots of variants (multi-hand, side bets, multi-ball or wheel, etc.) missing, too.
This hardly gets the job done.
The slots section is much better than the rest of the casino combined. I sort of picked and chose whatever slots stood out to me as I combed through them. There are many more than what I listed above.
The regular titles cover all your traditional casino themes:
What stood out to me – and what I look for in every slot section I review – are the recognizable titles revolving around well-known TV shows, movies, pop culture, celebrities, video games and more.
There are several slot machines here that fit that, from Jimi Hendrix to Platoon to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Overall, I think anyone wanting to play slots will find plenty to do here.
It looks like their site is built using HTML5. In other words, they offer an instant play casino (browser-based) that’s also mobile-friendly. This means Windows, Mac and Linux desktop users should be able to play here, as well as iOS and Android mobile users, too.
Blackberry and Windows mobile users will be hit or miss, but I think it’s worth giving it a shot if you’re on a newer-gen device.
We reached the end. So, what do we think?
Well, there are a few things that stood out to me that I don’t like:
I think there are better casinos out there. Casinos with more table, video and even live dealer games. Casinos with better bonus terms and cash out limits.
So, I’d rate these guys as average, at best.
That said, I couldn’t find anything actually wrong with Lucky Admiral Casino. So, if you’re interested in trying a new casino and don’t mind the negatives mentioned above, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t check them out.
