Lanadas Casino Review
Lanadas Casino looks fine, except the fact that it’s 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. The casino is 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 gaming providers: here you’ll see 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 games count only 50% to the WR’s, so you’ll play the games that may not like, or wager twice more. 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.
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 The website works fast and has no apparent functionality drawbacks, though it’s a bit outdated regarding appearance.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 game lobby is even worse: it’s much slower than the website itself and looks too cheap and flashy to be appealing. There’s nothing more to say about it.
“The website is working fast and has no apparent functionality drawbacks, though it’s a bit outdated in terms of appearance.”
Banking: Lanadas Casino 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 customer support service: they have all options for you to clarify any information and resolve any issues. The 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 this casino is going to be more popular but for now - we have what we have.
Software and Game Variety
Regardless of the fact that Lanadas Casino offers the games from top-notch providers, the size of their library isn’t satisfying. They offer a little more than 250 games 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.
Except the fact that the game library is small, there is a really poor choice of video poker games - just two of them.
Mobile and Live Games
Lanadas Casino’s live section offers five Roulette tables and two Baccarat tables. Not really cool, if you ask us. It’s not quite clear why they have five roulette tables if they could add more other games like Blackjack, Hold’em, etc.
Mobile version is fully functional and accessible through any mobile device.
Bonuses and Promotions
The promotion page of Lanadas Casino website has five options: two of them are about a 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 bonuses.”
That’s the link that leads us to the sweet and juicy flesh of the Lanadas Casino bonuses: the list of the wagering contribution for each game. Now it’s the time for math. The casino has approximately 250 games. In the list, it’s stated that all non-slot games and 11 specified slots contribute 0% to WR’s. 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 WR’s. All other games (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.
