Cold distant lifeless star

Alright, let's pretend that Magic Star Live Casino doesn't advertise the live games right in the name (because their live casino currently sucks). What else do they have? Turns out, all the standard stuff. PlayPearls games are alright, although too few. The welcome bonus is nice. Live chat was unresponsive, but maybe it's just our lucky day. The website is fine. An average casino overall, might be worth a try.

Magic Star Live Casino Review

Magic Star Live Casino was established in 2013, and supposedly makes great accent on the Live games. “Supposedly”, because you can’t really tell. We’ll get to that a bit later. The casino is operated by Platypus B.V, and is regulated by the Government of Curacao.

The website looks fine, with pretty night-skies theme, smooth instant play lobby, logically organized game categories, and “fun play” available for all the games.

What the website does miss, is a FAQ section. For example, the only notion of the banking options available are the logos at the bottom of the website. Anyway, in the cashier (after you register) you’ll see options like Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, credit cards, and several more.

The support is theoretically available 24/7 through live chat, and email. However, the live chat was offline at the time of writing this article, so it’s 23/6 at best.

“Live chat was not available at the time of writing this. Is it our bad luck or sloppy support?”

Software and Game Variety

Magic Star Live Casino is powered by PlayPearls software. Good thing number one - it’s pretty rare and feels new. Another good thing - some of the slots are fun (Star T-Rex for one, always gives us giggles). Now to the bad things: it’s still only a single software, and may get kinda repetitive. The total number of games there is about 200.

Table and card games section list traditional games like roulette, blackjack, casino poker, video poker, and baccarat, along with uncommon stuff (Wan Doy Poker, Under The Gun 31, Super Pan 9, Pyramid Poker, and so on).

Mobile and Live Games

Mobile version of the casino works fine, although it feels like they could have made it much easier to navigate through the games. You get a single column of games of the chosen category, and scrolling through it might take a while. Luckily, there’s a search field available.

The Live Games are a specialty of Magic Star Live Casino. Makes us sad to see them suck so hard. Currently they only have a couple of live roulette tables, broadcasted from several land-based casinos - Portomaso, Oracle, Expo, and Fitzwilliam. There’s also a message, saying that they are working their asses off to improve the section and add more games. Let’s hope it’s true, because right now it’s kinda pathetic.

Bonuses and Promotions

The Welcome Bonus at Magic Star Live Casino is a 300% first deposit match bonus up to €250. The wagering requirements are not terrible - 42 times the bonus amount. Of course they just couldn’t help but put some bullshit items into the bonus terms. Only slots and scratchcards are allowed when playing with a bonus. “High risk” players who bet more than 10% of their bankroll in a single bet are getting monitored. Switching between high and low bets for the purpose of completing the wagering may get your bonus taken away and account closed. Read the full thing to get all the details.

Our Opinion

Magic Star Live Casino sucks at what has to be its forte, but otherwise is more or less fine. The games by PlayPearls are rather uncommon, and might interest those of you who are tired of omnipresent Netent/Microgaming/Playtech stuff. The welcome bonus is alright too.

Click here to play at Magic Star Live Casino. It would have been better without the “Live” part in the title though.
