Lanadas Casino Review
Lanadas Casino looks fine, except the fact the online desktop design is too narrow. Come on, guys, people use widescreen monitors nowadays! It’s a bit annoying to stare into these wide blank stripes on both sides of your screen. The website isn’t bad, but it isn’t modern either, and that’s everything we can say about it. They are licensed in Malta and the UK, so you can be sure that any issues will be resolved in time.
The assortment of gaming titles is too poor to call it good: they have about 250 games in total, and 80% of them are slots. We can’t say anything bad about their gaming providers: here you’ll see slots from Microgaming, NextGen, NetEnt, Amaya and few more. The Welcome Bonus looks decent, with its 100% deposit match, up to €200, and 50 free spins.
The catch is that the wagering requirements stated as 35xB are not so good. Wagers on most titles count only 50% to the wagering requirements, so you’ll either play slots that you really don't want to, or wager twice more on the slots you do want to play. We’ll explain the situation in detail in our review. All in all, the Lanadas Casino is not bad, but it will be better for you not to claim the Welcome Bonus.
- Licensed by MGA and UKGC;
- Decent software providers;
- Phone support;
- True RNG verified by iTech Labs.
- No 24/7 support;
- Poor choice of table games and video poker;
- Tricky terms about wagering requirements.
Lanadas Casino holds licenses from the MGA and the UKGC, has iTech Labs certificate for fair RNG and provides 128-Bit SSL encryption, verified by GoDaddy for data security. It’s a must-have package for any modern online casino nowadays, so we’ll say that the legal part, security, and fairness are on a decent level. GoWild Casino can’t even dream about this package.
The website design isn’t the sharpest tool in their shed. The website works fast and has no apparent functionality drawbacks, though it’s a bit outdated regarding appearance. The online game lobby is even worse: it is much slower than the website itself and looks too cheap and flashy to be appealing. There’s nothing more to say about it.
Lanadas Casino works fast and has no apparent functionality drawbacks, though outdated in terms of appearance.
Banking: Lanadas supports withdrawals via credit/debit cards, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz and several other methods. The list is really impressive, and there are even more options for deposits. All withdrawals are subject to 24-48 hours pending period, and the processing time is 24 hours for eWallets and from four to six days for bank transfer and credit cards.
Customer Support: That’s what we call a decent free online customer support service: they have all options for you to clarify any information and resolve any issues. The free support service can be reached via live chat, email and a toll-free phone number. The problem is that they don’t work at night (working hours are from 08:00 to 01:00 CET). We truly believe that it should change if they want to become more popular but for now - we have what we have. The support service that works round the clock can be found at Casino Action.
Software and Game Variety
Even though Lanadas Casino offers games from top-notch providers, the size of their library isn’t satisfying. They offer a little more than 250 games to spin from NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen, Amaya, and several more providers. Here are some of their titles that you might know:
- Slots: 1 Can 2 Can, Cosmic Fortune, Gnome Wood;
- Table/Card Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Solitaire, Craps;
- Video Poker: Jacks or Better, Joker Pro;
- Other Games: Diamond Duet, 7 boom, Candy Tale.
Other than the small game library, there is also a problem with the choice of online video poker - there are just two of them. If you love this game category, feel free to check the collections at LuckyCasino and Aston Casino.
Mobile and Live Games
The live section at Lanadas offers five Roulette tables and two Baccarat tables. Not really cool, if you ask us. It is not quite clear why they have five roulette tables if they could add more other options like Blackjack, Hold’em, etc.
The online Mobile version is fully functional and accessible through any mobile device.
Bonuses and Promotions
The promotion page of Lanadas website has five options: two of them are about an online welcome bonus. One for daily bonuses, one for loyalty points program, and one for the tournaments. Let’s inspect their welcome offer. It’s a 100% deposit match, up to €200, with 50 free spins. The wagering requirements are 35xB for the bonus funds and 50x for free spin winnings. Looks not bad, right?
There’s a link in the T&C’s of the Welcome Bonus, that leads us to general Bonus Policy. There you can see that the
Further requirements may be set according to the type of bonus.
That’s the link that leads us to the sweet and juicy flesh of the Lanadas's bonuses: the list of the wagering contribution for each game. Now it’s time for math. Lanadas has approximately 250 choices. In the list, it’s stated that all non-slot games and 11 specified slots contribute 0% to requirement. Magic Spinner wagers contribute 10%.
Then there comes the list of 155 titles plus ALL NetEnt games that contribute 50% of wagers made on them to the playthrough requirements.. All other options(not specified) contribute 100% of each wager towards the wagering requirements. Isn’t it cool that you’ll have to play one of the 10 (at max) games with your bonus, to have fair WR’s? We think that we’ve said enough, so it’s your choice now.
